    Who:
    Classes that don't have stealth ability who need to get to the bar in BRD for some reason (most likely to turn in Thorium Brotherhood stuff).

    I recommend killing the 3 fire patrols you encounter. If your character cannot solo the fire pats, then you can try to avoid them (I have never tried).

    Level 60 is recommended, but it might not be required. If you are not level 60 then you might catch unwanted agro.

    What you need:
    - 3x Invisibility Potion
    - Shadowforge Key

    Instructions:
    • enter BRD. Unlock and go through the gate on your immediate left after zoning in. Then unlock and go through another gate on your immediate right. Then unlock the door on your immediate left.
    • wait for the fire guy to patrol just inside the door. Kill him when he comes.
    • just inside the door, go half way up the stairs on the right, then drop down near the Shadowforge Lock. There is a corner of that room without mobs. Sneak up to the lock very carefully to avoid agro. Activate the lock when you are within range.
    • after activating the lock, make a train and zone out of the instance. Use whatever crowd control you have (hunter frost, mage nova, etc). Use any other skills to help you zone out fast (hunter aspect, mage blink, caster shields, etc). Then zone in again and go back to the stairs.
    • wait for the fire patrol at the top of the stairs. Kill him.
    • first invisibility - activate an invisibility potion and run down the corridor on the left. There is only one way to go down the left corridor... just keep going until you go through the door at the end (the door which was opened by the Shadowforge Lock). This run takes almost the entire duration of the potion (18 secs), so start as close to the mobs as you can and be quick about it.
    • now you should be in a long hallway with doors on either end. A fire pat will come near the door on the far end. Kill him.
    • second invisibility - wait for your invisibility potions to cooldown (10 minutes). You will see mobs around the left corner in the next corridor. Use another invisibility potion and run down the corridor. You will pass 2 big groups, one with a fire guy. Stay on the right and make your way to the bottom of the stairs in the room with the gnomes and golems. You will have several extra seconds of invisibility for this one, so timing isn't as critical.
    • while at the bottom of the stairs, kill the pats that come by. They are regular mobs that die easily. Be aware that they run when close to death - don't let them run into a big group. By the time you are done with the pats, your invisibility potions should be cooled down.
    • go straight down the middle of the gnome / golem room towards the boss at the end. When you are just outside of the boss room, go right along the wall towards the fire guys on the bridge. Hug the wall to avoid agroing the big groups. Now you should be at the fire guys on the bridge.
    • third invisibility - use an invisibility potion and cross the bridge. Timing is not critical because you will have several extra seconds of invisibility.
    • now you are in the bar. :cheers:

    Practice is required. You might not get it the first couple of times.

    Scorpion suggested using several blinks in place of the first invisibility potion. I tested it and it worked, but it takes some precision. So mages can skip the first invisibility potion.

    If your 60....

    I was able to walk right down the middle of the mobs on the left/right side to unlock the giant wheel/cog after opening the door. (Instead of jumping and creating a train of mobs after you....dazed effect kills)

    When you get there use your mouse and hold the right button to turn yourself around with out taking a step that way you can be in the middle still and walk back to the stairs..

    If and only if your 60 will your aggo range be small enough

    oh yeah.....

    Pallies have this nifty buff that reduces your threat.....thats what I was using, Blessing of Salvation...reduces your aggro radius by 15% as well...

    With the new pally changes some of those blessing are supposed to last 15 min now.....have a pally buff you and then try it

    edit: On one side if you take a priest with you you can try mind soothing the dorfs too!!! hehe I make Chanta use all her skills when we do stuff!!
