HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

A Quick Guide to Scholomance

Looting a cleared room in Scholomance

I’ve never enjoyed Scholomance much because I have a terrible sense of direction. I think the idea is cool – inflitrating an evil school – and the dungeon appeals to me more than Stratholme. When I decided to revisit Scholo at 80 for Argent Dawn reputation I went straight to Google to find a map and a walkthrough. None of it was helpful. So I thought I’d write and share my own.

What this Guide Is

This guide is intended to graphically show you a clear path through the dungeon and tell you where to find each boss. You won’t miss any (I’ve left out the one optional summoned boss, I figure if you are completing the quests you’ll be able to find him on subsequent runs). You’ll do minimal backtracking. You won’t run in circles looking for a door. You’ll know when you have finished.

What this Guide Isn’t

This guide will not:

  • tell you which mobs to clear
  • suggest group compositions
  • provide any other instructions on how to complete Scholomance at the appropriate gear/level for the instance (level 56-60)
  • tell you how to complete quests in/around Scholomance
  • tell you how to get the key to Scholomance


Map of Scholomance

The layout of Scholomance with paths and bosses marked


  1. Immediately upon entering the instance clear the bridge you’re standing on and head straight across and through the gate
  2. Turn left down the stairs, killing whatever, you will be in the room called The Reliquary, open the gate to your north and head through
  3. Head west through to the Chamber of Summoning
  4. Head south but before you leave the room run into the door on the west wall (the door looks closed but will open as run into it)
  5. Go down the corridor (Note: the skeletons in here are immune to everything except holy damage) and kill Jandice Barov
  6. Retrace your steps until you reach ground level again and head south through the gate
  7. Keep heading south, following the corridor down and around, until you reach Rattlegore
  8. Retrace your steps until your screen announces that you are back in “Scholomance”
  9. Go through the east gate (Note: more holy damage skeletons here) and open the southern Door to the Viewing Room (the key drops from mobs killed previously)
  10. Go through the southwest gate and run through the door/wall at the end into the Laboratory and kill Raz Frostwhisper
  11. Retrace your steps until you are back in the Viewing Room and head through the northeast gate out of the room into the Headmaster’s Study
  12. Go left, and clear each of the three rooms on the this floor killing Lorekeeper Polkelt (north room), Doctor Theolen (east room) and Instructor Malicia (south room)
  13. Jump down or take the stairs down to the bottom floor and again clear each of the three rooms killing Lady Illucia Barov (north room), Lord Alexei Barov (east room) and The Ravenian (south room)
  14. Retrace a few feet to the center of the Headmaster’s Study and kill Darkmaster Gandling who has appeared in the center.
  15. You’re done!

      Do you still need to do a quest? Because ive done everything in this guide and the final boss doesn’t show up.

      • CassandriNo Gravatar says

        I’m pretty sure you don’t need to do a quest – he spawns when you’ve killed all the bosses that lead up to him (with the exception of the summoned/optional boss who really is optional).

        I’m not sure why it didn’t work for you :(

    this is helpful inside the instance and what not yes but i am having troubles finding the instance at all. what area, where do i need to go to get to Scholomance. I level through dungeons so i don’t explore much and i have no direction to get there. Google and Wowhead have failed in helping on this matter.

    Thanks for the comment Light. Scholomance is located in Western Plaguelands on the island of Cael Darrow in the south eastern corner of the region. When I was last there to solo the content (not using the dungeon finder) you needed the Skeleton Key to enter.
    However both this item and the quest chain leading to the item are marked as obsolete on Wowhead so I imagine the key is no longer required to enter.

    Happy dungeoning!

  4. What i do not realize is in reality how you’re not actually a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right
    now. You are so intelligent. You understand thus significantly on the subject of this topic, produced me individually imagine it from so many numerous angles.
    Its like women and men don’t seem to be involved except it is
    something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs nice.
    At all times take care of it up!

    It carries good information.‘s last post:
