Sorrow's Furnace is the largest mine of the Stone Summit Dwarves, resting at the base of Grenth's Footprint. The land surrounding Sorrow's Furnace was once sacred for the Deldrimor Dwarves until it was stripped by the Stone Summit for the metals in the mountain, and turned into a series of mines with Sorrow's Furnace at the base. Within Sorrow's Furnace itself is a series of underground mining operations as well as a multitude of ruins. Within the northern portions of Sorrow's Furnace, a huge crevice opens into the surface in the area known as The Gap, allowing the cold mountain air and snow to meet with the burning heat of the furnaces. In the southern portions lie a series of tunnels covered in vegetation, not yet mined and littered with the old ruins - including The Stone Basilica.

In the heart of the furnace lies the Iron Forgeman, a large cyclopean golem being constructed to both replace the need of the Stone Summit's Dredge Slaves as well as become a weapon to use in the war against Deldrimor.

Getting thereEdit

Exit Deldrimor War Camp into Grenth's Footprint and head downwards into the Stone Summit. Make your way north from there, being careful of the various bosses that spawn. The entrance into Sorrow's Furnace isn't far in, and should become visible on your radar soon after going north.

Quests availableEdit

To Sorrow's Furnace serves as an overarching quest for the Sorrow's Furnace quests, leading up to The Final Assault and The Forge Heart.
