The Court of Bones.

The Court of Bones is located between the subzones of Malykriss: The Vile Hold, Corp'rethar: The Horror Gate, Cathedral of Darkness, and Icecrown Citadel.

This is where Arthas Menethil and Illidan Stormrage engaged in their final battle for the chance to ascend Icecrown Citadel, which the player can see in N [25-30] The Hunter and the Prince. The court of bones is filled with members of the Boneguard.


Currently, the quests N [25-30 Daily] Battle Before The Citadel and B [25-30 Daily] At The Enemy's Gates invoke phasing in this area while they are in your quest log.

The normal mobs of the area are absent. In their place are the Boneguard:

  • Boneguard Scouts - Gargoyles that wander the area, generally out of melee range but susceptible to thrown lances.

A formation of Boneguard forces in front of the citadel entrance:

An Argent Crusade encampment exists north of the Boneguard forces, with a set of barricades shielding them. A number of Campaign Warhorses are here for players to mount.
