The Battledepths is an underground explorable area. The main chamber in the center of the northern part of the map contains a number of Dwarven quest NPCs. There is a dungeon, Heart of the Shiverpeaks, accessible from the southwest corner of the area. Once that dungeon has been completed through the quest Destruction's Depths, a new outpost will appear, the Central Transfer Chamber, which opens directly into the main chamber.
Until a character reaches the Central Transfer Chamber, the Battledepths can only be accessed through either Ice Cliff Chasms or Varajar Fells.
- The route through Ice Cliff Chasms from the Eye of the North has no foes, but within the Battledepths you must fight through 5 groups of 2 Whirling Wisps and a group of 4 Chilling Wisps to reach the main chamber.
- The route through Varajar Fells from Olafstead has more foes, but enters the main chamber directly.
