Online:The Deadlands (dungeon)
|Accessible from Oblivion Portals|
"Behold, the domain of the Puissant Flame! Behold the realm of fire and flood! By His will, are the mighty laid low! By his fury, the blood of Oblivion boils forevermore!"—Akalotho, Markynaz of the High Faith
The area consists of a ring of islands in a sea of lava, which are linked by portals. Your goal is to reach the Havocrel's Tower in the middle, where you can defeat the Duke of Storms and deactivate the machinary to complete the World Event.

- While classified as a Public Dungeon, the Deadlands works differently from every other Public Dungeon released before it (including Imperial Sewers, which is also non-standard). There is no Skyshard, no completion objective, and no group event granting a Skill Point on completion. It also has more than a dozen points of entry scattered throughout the Blackwood Zone, rather than one location. The bosses (other than Salosuum and Havocrel) are not fixed. The overall format is more akin to World Events like Dark Anchors or Harrowstorms.
