The Dwarven city of Arkngthamz-Phng rivaled the splendor of Dumac's kingdom before it was laid to waste by a Dragon in the First Era. The legend of that terrifying creature has long kept travelers far from Fang Lair ... until now.
Entrance to Fang Lair

Fang Lair is a group dungeon in Bangkorai.

It is part of the Dragon Bones dungeon pack DLC, along with Scalecaller Peak. The entrance is located in northeastern Bangkorai. The dungeon itself is located in an ancient Dwemer ruin site, where necromancers are attempting to resurrect a once-living Dragon. Notes on the Dwemer ruin, written by Neramo, can be found near the entrance to the dungeon.

Backstory Description[edit]

Update 17 Patch Notes

Fang Lair was once a large Dwemer mine. Their glory however was laid low by the Dragon Thurvokun centuries ago. The Dragon used the Dwarven halls as its lair for uncountless years, so much so that the original name of the mine was lost and it became simply known as, Fang Lair. Thurvokun eventually passed but great power remained in the Dwemer halls. Adventurers from all corners of Tamriel sought to plumb the depths of Fang Lair to steal the treasures for themselves and all met ruin. Now, Orryn the Black, a particularly powerful necromancer, and his followers have come to enact a ritual with which to raise the ancient Dragon and unleash it upon Nirn.

Dragon Bones – Fang Lair Preview

The powerful necromancer Orryn the Black has discovered the long-abandoned Dwarven ruins of Fang Lair. The cunning mage seeks neither treasure nor fame, but an ancient legacy lost for centuries. Deep within the halls of the ancient city lay the bones of the great dragon Thurvokun, who claimed the site as his own millennia ago. Should Orryn's nefarious plan succeed, he will gain control of a powerful and dangerous creature: a reanimated undead dragon!
The Blackmarrow have taken control of the long-forgotten halls of Fang Lair, and they stand poised to create an army of undead the likes of which Tamriel has never seen. Will you battle your way through the ancient Dwarven ruin, put a stop to their plans, and face off against their leader, the devious necromancer Orryn the Black?
