Ghorrock as it appears today

Ghorrock is an abandoned Zarosian fortress located to the west of the Ice Plateau. Only the lower two above-ground floors, the two dungeon levels, and the exterior can currently be accessed. There is at least one more floor that cannot be reached as well as numerous doors and trapdoors that cannot be opened. The fortress is entered via arches in the southern wall.

Until the addition of The Temple at Senntisten quest, Ghorrok was believed to have been destroyed during the Third Age, like the rest of Zaros's settlements. The location at which the Ghorrock teleport leaves players, in the Frozen Waste Plateau, suggested that the fortress had been completely destroyed, with no existing remains. However, the quest revealed that Ghorrock actually still exists, albeit being further north-west than previously believed. This means that Ghorrock is the last of the Second Age Zarosian settlements still in existence.

Large parts of the fortress are frozen, although the dungeon levels thaw out after the quest.

An intact statue of General Khazard is present in the fortress's courtyard. Completion of The Temple at Senntisten quest is REQUIRED to move the "Ice Block" and enter the fortress

Getting there

Ghorrock can only be accessed upon reaching a certain stage of The Temple at Senntisten quest.

Iron Dragons and Steel Dragons patrol the grounds surrounding the structure. They do not enter inside the fortress, but their long-range dragonbreath attacks can strike the player in southern part of the courtyard.

During The Temple at Senntisten the fortress's dungeon is home to a small number of Waterfiends and Icefiends as well as the Ice Demon. At this time, the dungeon is a multiway combat area. After the quest, the dungeon contains a large number of level 115 Waterfiends and level 132 Icefiends. All monsters on a level can be switched between their Waterfiend and Icefiend forms with the placement or removal of heat orbs on the pedestals on each level. After the quest, the dungeon is a single-way combat zone.
