Entrance Location

The Undead wing of Stratholme can be entered after obtaining the Key to the City from Magistrate Barthilas.

You will use this key to open the service gate that is found to the southeastof the main instance entrance and will skip the Live wing completely.

If you do not have the key, you can clear into the Undead wing from the Livewing, but it is much more time consuming if you want to complete multiple farmingruns.

Layout of Stratholme Undead

The Undead wing of Stratholme is actually fairly linear, despite the need forplayers to double back slightly to destroy the crystals and access the finalbosses.

When you first enter the dungeon, assuming you have used the service gateentrance, you will follow a short corridor to a gate. After you have opened thegate, you will have to clear the area ahead and meet the first boss ofthe dungeon, Magistrate Barthilas. Note that he will run away from yourgroup and you will fight him later, just before Ramstein the Gorger.

If you entered the dungeon through the main entrance and have cleared throughfrom the Live wing, Barthilas will not run away and you can fight him in thiscourtyard.

Once this area has been cleared, you will head to the opposite side from whereyou entered and follow another path towards the gauntlet area.

There are 3 buildings that are each guarded by a boss and they all contain agroup of Thuzadin Acolytes that must be killed in order to access thefinal bosses. The eastern boss is Baroness Anastari, the northeasternboss is Maleki the Pallid, and the western boss is Nerub”enkan.

Once you have cleared all 3 buildings of the acolytes, you can head to thenorth side of this area and kill Barthilas, the boss that ran away from your groupat the start.

A gate to the west will have been opened and, if you head through it, you willcome to a group of abominations that must all be killed in order to summonRamstein the Gorger. After he has been slain, you can clear the final bitsof trash and head into the main crypt where the final boss, Baron Rivendare,is waiting on the bottom floor.
