Additional Information

Dark Iron
Blackrock Depths is one of the two places where Dark Iron ore can be mined reliably, with the other location being Molten Core. Since patch 1.7 dark iron ore nodes have begun to appear rarely in the Burning Steppes and the Searing Gorge. It is also the location of the Black Forge and the Black Anvil. The Black Forge is the only place where dark iron ore can be smelted into bars. The Black Anvil is required for most crafting recipes that require dark iron bars. As such, a run in BRD is essential to almost any blacksmithing or engineering work which uses that rare metal.

Blacksmithing

Scattered around Blackrock Depths are Blacksmithing Plans which appear as scrolls that can be clicked on with a gear icon. Only a high level Blacksmith should click on these plans, if anyone without high level blacksmithing attempts to use them the plans will be destroyed. Opening the scroll will give you one of the following BoP plans:

[Plans: Dark Iron Mail]
[Plans: Dark Iron Shoulders]
As mentioned, anyone can click on the Blacksmithing Plans but without the proper skill you will destroy the plans. Also, the plans within are BoP so you may want to roll before using them if you have multiple smiths.

Places to find different plans:

Beside Golem Lord Argelmach in a room inside the manufactory.
In the manufactory on a bench on the right.
In the room before the 7 ghosts, beside the stairs.
Near General Angerforge on a shelf.
Engineering
Several engineering schematics are available only in Blackrock Depths.

[Schematic: Field Repair Bod 74A] appears as a scroll on the ground near Golem Lord Argelmach
[Schematic: World Enlarger] drops from the weapon technicians in the Manufactory.
[Schematic: Goblin Jumper Cables XL] drops from Plugger Spazzring.
