Death's Breach

Death's Breach

Death's Breach is a plateau below Acherus: The Ebon Hold in the Eastern Plaguelands, to the west of Havenshire. It can be accessed directly by going through the cave in the Noxious Glade.

Players can access the Ebon Hold by taking the teleporter located in the northern part of the breach, directly east from the tunnel to the Noxious Glade. A ramp on each side of the plateau leads down into the Ruins of the Scarlet Enclave.

Death's Breach changes throughout the Phases of the Scarlet Enclave.

After the Scarlet Enclave Edit

Upon finishing the Final Quests and leaving the instanced Scarlet Enclave, one will find that like Havenshire and New Avalon, Death's Breach has been abandoned. The Tents remain, the Lich King's platform does not however. Transport to and from Acherus has been removed in favor of the Death Knight's Death Gate. This also keeps others out of Acherus through normal means. Death Knights can also use the flight path to get into the Ebon Hold, should they not want to use or cannot use Death Gate.
