To enter the Sunken Temple in World of Warcraft, swim through the flooded Broken Hall, and run down the passage to the right that leads to the Hall of Masks to reach the instance portal. The Sunken Temple lies in the Swamp of Sorrows. Alliance players can reach it by running though Darkshire to Deadwind Pass, and Horde players can take the flight path to Stonard and proceed from there.
The entrance to the Sunken Temple instance moved when the dungeon level changed from 50 to 60 with the Cataclysm patch. Players must be level 45 to enter, and mob levels range from 46 to 54. The level 55 elite bosses are Avatar of Hakkar, Jammal'an the Prophet, Dragonkin and Shade of Eranikus. Shade of Eranikus drops an epic one-hand sword, Dragon's Call, and Avatar of Hakkar drops an epic cloth chest, Embrace of the Wind Serpent. Both items bind to the characters that pick them up. The instance yields several rare items as well. Players from both factions can complete the "Eranikus" and "The Blood God Hakkar" quests after collecting them from Lord Itharus inside the instance. The Sunken Temple, or the Temple of Atal'Hakkar, is a shrine to the Blood God Hakkar the Soulflayer erected by the Atal'ai trolls.
