Drizzt Do'urden and his companions are trying to stop hordes of unbound demons wreaking havoc through the Underdark and Overrunning the surface world.
No longer confined to the Abyss, demon lords have been sighted throughout the Underdark. At the heart of the corruption lies Demogorgon, Prince of Demons. Drizzt plans to stop him, and needs your help.
The Underdark Campaign is a campaign, an interlocking series of quests, dungeons, tasks, and rewards introduced in Module 8: Underdark on November 17, 2015. The campaign can be started at level 60 with a series of quests written by R.A. Salvatore called Dwarven King Quest Arc. The campaign is set in the Underdark and introduces popular characters of the D&D universe such as Drizzt Do'Urden and Bruenor Battlehammer. Unlike previous campaigns, this campaign is focused on completion of Demonic Heroic Encounters, skirmishes and raid encounters in order to get the required currencies.

- Demonic Heroic Encounter: there are 3 types of encounter, Demonic Closure, Demonic Escape and Demonic Slaughter. The encounters can be found in several maps: Dread Ring, Icewind Pass, Dwarven Valley, Well of Dragons and Stronghold. Each encounter rewards [Seal of the Elements], [Faerzress] and [Demonic Ichor] in different amounts depending on the number of players (<3 yield a bronze reward, >3 and <7 yield a silver reward, >6 yield a gold reward). If enough players are participating, an additional encounter spawns immediately after completing any of the three encounters, which allows the players to kill a powerful demon for additional reward.
- Throne of the Dwarven Gods: the skirmish takes place in the throne hall where the initial quests series has ended. There are two possible variations, which are randomly chosen upon start of the instance
