But to do this, you'll need your attunement.

Naxxramas will require players finish Attunement before entering the raid. This attunement process is different than BWL and MC, however.

Instead of completing a quest through other dungeon and raid content, Naxx attunement simply requires completing a quest with gold and materials.

To lower the cost of Naxx attunement, however, you can grind up Argent Dawn reputation.

To get attuned to Naxxramas is surprisingly simple, but can be painfully expensive for those unprepared.

You'll first want to get to Honored reputation with the Argent Dawn.

Once this is complete, you'll visit Archmage Angela Dosantos at Light's Hope Chapel (Eastern Plaguelands).

There you will pick up a simple quest, The Dread Citadel, to complete and earn your Naxxramas attunement.

The Dread Citadel will require some payment and materials depending on your Argent Dawn rep level.

For those at Honored reputation with the Argent Dawn, you'll have to pay 60 gold and hand over 5 Arcane Crystals, 2 Nexus Crystals, and 1 Righteous Orb.

For those at Revered reputation with the Argent Dawn, you'll have to pay 30 gold and hand over 2 Arcane Crystals and 1 Nexus Crystal.

If you reach Exalted with the Argent Dawn, you won't need any additional gold or materials.

Unlocking Tier 3

Many classes anxiously await the opening of Naxxramas to get their Tier 3 items, which are BIS for many.

FINAL PHASE: Naxxramas is the final raid in Classic WoW, and tier 3 is the ultimate armor for most classes

To unlock these Tier 3 items, you'll have to do a pre-requisite quest.


This quest, Echoes of War, is the immediate followup to the Naxxramas attunement quest The Dread Citadel.

It will task players to kill 8 Deathknight Captains, 5 Living Monstrosities, 5 Stoneskin Gargoyles, and 3 Venom Stalkers.

This quest ironically gives players 500 Argent Dawn rep just after this rep could potentially save hundreds of gold on Naxx attunement.

To turn in your Tier 3 armor tokens from Naxx, you'll need to also have the prerequisite materials.
