    A raid instance in World of Warcraft, commonly referred to as "MC". Molten Core was the first and only 40-man raid dungeon in World of Warcraft at the time of its initial release. It is located deep below Blackrock Mountain and is accessible via the 5-man instance, Blackrock Depths. Players are able complete an "attunement" quest that allows them to forego travelling through Blackrock Depths to reach the Molten Core, and instead use a shortcut located in the Blackrock Mountain hub area.
