WoW Classic: Dungeon Levels List – Level Requirements, Ranges & Loot

Our WoW Classic: Dungeon Levels List features all of the required levels you'll need to reach to enter dungeons in the vanilla version of World of Warcraft! While there's usually a minimum level requirement for each dungeon, it is very rarely recommended to enter the dungeon at this level. You are better off waiting at least 5 - 10 levels above this requirement before entering one of these dungeons.

Why Dungeons?

Dungeons are a great change of pace to breakup some of the monotony of leveling while playing through to level 60. Providing a large XP boost, dungeons will prepare you for raiding faster than the typical questing you may have grown tired of. They are also a great way to get some gear that will carry you for quite a few levels as you make your way in the game.

However, you will need to find some players to aid you in your journey. Typically every dungeon requires five players to complete: one Tank, one Healer, and at least three DPS. You also need to meet the level requirement to even enter the dungeon, and even when that's the case it is usually ill-advised to enter at too low a level. Dungeons are more difficult than typical quests.

WoW Classic: Dungeon Levels List

I'm including the minimum level requirement needed to enter any of the dungeons, but also the recommended levels in bold. If a dungeon is labeled either Horde or Alliance, that just means that particular faction has quests for it and easy access. You can still enter the dungeon as an opposing faction, it's just a lot more difficult (have to travel through an opposing area/city) and you won't have quests associated with the dungeon.

Raids

While you should be level 60 for all of these, they also largely require you to be very well equipped. If you don't have the right gear for them, you will be getting stomped left and right! Keep in mind that all of these aren't available in the first phase of WoW Classic.

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. Minimum level for all of the Scarlet Monastery dungeons is 20, not 21.

  2. Strat and Sholo titles are swapped.

    1. Fixed, thank you for the catch!

  3. Hey, it’s been over a year and I still refer to this page all the time! Thanks again ya bloody legend!

    1. Hey, thanks for the kind words! Glad we could help. 🙂

  4. You can zone in to ZG at 50.

  5. You can enter BWL at 55, possibly lower. (you cannot use the orb of command, but you can certainly be summoned in or walk in via UBRS)

  6. You can enter SFK atleast at level 10, but think it’s level 9 reall.

  7. I entered Scarlet Monastary with my level 20 rogue and got ironspines eye and did cath a few times (level 60 killed everything). Not sure what its minimum is but can confirm that I entered both cath and GY at 20. I was leveling my rogue to 21 so I could use prison shank from Stockades + grabbing some future BOP’s.

  8. Very good guide but the Scarlet Monastary info isn not accurate (like the other guys said). You can’t go to the graveyard, library or cathedral at those levels.

    1. Okay, it’s been updated!

  9. Scarlet Monastery is from level 30 (or 29). Otherwise great list!

    1. Thanks! I split it up into the different dungeons, hopefully they are correct now.

      1. Good, but it’s not exactly right. I think this is better:
        29-36: The Scarlet Monastery – Graveyard
        Minimum Level: 21

        32-39: The Scarlet Monastery – Library
        Minimum Level: 21

        36-43: The Scarlet Monastery – Armory
        Minimum Level: 21

        38-45: The Scarlet Monastery – Cathedral
        Minimum Level: 21

        1. The minimum is 20, not 21, to enter Scarlet Monastery. I wouldn’t recommend it unless being carried.

        2. You’d have to tell me where you got that information because I can’t confirm that anywhere.

          1. I understand. Well, I leveled in SM from level 29-43 so that’s how I got it. To try SM graveyard before level 29 is an easy and quick death, even level 29 isn’t easy there. The info you have now isn’t accurate sorry but I love the whole guide otherwise, so thanks for it. 🙂

  10. Thanks for this 🙂

    1. No problem!

  11. Deadmines isn’t Alliance only just an FYI if you can manage the long walk there you can get into the dungeon.

    1. You’re right, I removed the “only” parts.
