Added in World of Warcraft Dragonflight Patch 10.1, Zaralek Cavern is a new zone on the Dragon Isles, or to be exact, under the Dragon Isles. At the beginning of Embers of Neltharion, the zone is violently attacked by the Primalists in an attempt to find deeply-buried Neltharions secrets and the valiant heroes of Azeroth follow them to Zaralek Caverns. 

There, we meet Niffen and the Drogbar, two races with a deep understanding of the underground and they help us find our way around the cavern. While in Zaralek Cavern, we’ll busy ourselves with befriending Niffen and Drogbar, hunting down rare spawns, completing Public Objectives, and Sniffenseeking quests.

Before you can enjoy the company of both Niffen and Drogbar, it’s essential you understand how to reach Zaralek Cavern, no matter if this is your first or 10th visit.

If you’re heading out to Zaralek Cavern for the first time, you’ll first need to unlock this area by starting and completing the main quest line. The questline starts with The Land Beneath quest and eventually takes you to Cascades Canyon in Ohn’ahran Plains. Once there, you’ll have to complete the following quests—Where the Flames Fell, and Scar of Earth and Fire. Then, you’ll get The Patience of Princes quest and you’ll be asked to Dragonride to Zaralek Caverns.
