• Dark Iron Bomb

  • Requires Engineering (285)
  • 1 Charge
  • Sell Price: 12s 50c


This item is crafted with Engineering (285); taught by  [Schematic: Dark Iron Bomb], a drop from Weapon Technicians in Blackrock Depths.

Materials required:
Inv gizmo 04.png 2x [Thorium Widget] Inv ingot mithril.png 1x [Dark Iron Bar]
Inv misc ammo gunpowder 01.png 3x [Dense Blasting Powder] Inv fabric purplefire 01.png 3x [Runecloth]

One set of components makes 3 bombs.


Particularly with the new Burning Crusade recipes of  [Fel Iron Bomb] and  [Adamantite Grenade], this item is largely of historical value.

Until relatively recently,  [Dark Iron Ore] (like other ores) was limited to 10 per stack. Add to that the special requirements to learn how to craft Dark Iron Bars, this item was very expensive, compared to other items that could be made from that same dark iron.

With the advent of Burning Crusade, though, almost all of those other items are also obsolete.

Patch changes

  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.6.0 (2005-07-12): Dark Iron Bomb tooltip text and stun effect radius has been corrected to be the appropriate 5 yards.
