Neltharion's Lair is located in Highmountain. This is the cavern where Neltharion lived before he became Deathwing.[1] Adventurers need to venture inside to recover the Hammer of Khaz'goroth wielded by Dargrul the Underking.

The Earth Warder Neltharion, later known as Deathwing, once called this cavern home. Since his fall, the drogbar that once worshipped the great dragon built their capital within this ancient lair. Now, Dargrul, chieftain of the drogbar, rallies a massive army within these depths. Bolstered by the Hammer of Khaz'goroth, this army will surge from the mountainside if left unchecked, devastating Highmountain and threatening the security of all Azeroth.
