The '''Pit of Saron''' is the second wing of the [[Frozen Halls]] instances of [[Icecrown Citadel]], released in [[patch 3.3]]. The enormous pit in the dungeon is filled with large extracts of saronite ore and the Scourge have taken many [[Alliance]] and [[Horde]] prisoners forcing them to mine the [[saronite]] or face torture and reanimation into undeath. The players help [[Jaina Proudmoore]] or [[Sylvanas Windrunner]] rescue the prisoners and put a stop to the Scourge's operations and defeat the brutal scourge master of the area and his lieutenants.
 
 
To become "attuned" to the Pit of Saron, players are required to complete the quest {{quest|Echoes of Tortured Souls (Alliance)}} / {{quest|Echoes of Tortured Souls (Horde)|(Horde)}} in the [[Forge of Souls]] as part of the [[Frozen Halls]] story line quest chain.
 
 
== Lore ==
 
The Pit of Saron, accessible only to those who have laid waste to the [[Forge of Souls]]' unholy operations, will bring Horde and Alliance forces deeper into the [[Lich King]]'s domain. Players who venture here will immediately be confronted by the lord of this lair, {{NPC||Scourgelord Tyrannus}}. But defeating him will not be as easy as it seems. Before they can present a threat to Tyrannus, the adventurers, instructed by their leaders, will need to free enslaved allies who have been trapped by the Scourge. Until that happens, Tyrannus will leave all adversaries to his minions, workers of the citadel's mines. Perhaps the challenges here will lend clues as to the whereabouts of the Lich King's private chambers outside of the Frozen Throne, deep within the [[Halls of Reflection]].
 
 
The events of the dungeon play out in the following quests:

== Dungeon denizens ==
 
[[File:Pit of Saron.jpg|thumb]]
 
===Bosses===
 
;{{NPC||Forgemaster Garfrost}}: A master of [[Scourge]] weaponry, the forgemaster hauls stocks of [[saronite]] ore and other precious materials to the cold forges where the mechanisms of death are born. With a host of rime weapons and exotic alloys at his disposal, it could get cold in here.
 
 
;{{NPC||Krick and Ick}}: [[Zombie]]s serve as mindless muscle in the Pit of Saron's mines, stockpiling metals for Forgemaster Garfrost, and {{NPC||Krick}} -- a devious [[leper gnome]] -- supervises the operations from atop {{NPC||Ick}}, Krick's ghastly means of transportation.
 
 
;{{NPC||Scourgelord Tyrannus}}: Tyrannus is a terrible force who will no doubt demonstrate his powers to those brave enough to enter the Pit of Saron. The scourgelord must die if players hope to make their way into the third and final wing of this dungeon.
