- It is usable in any location in the world, and summons a giant drill out of the ground.
- Party, raid, and battleground group members may click on the drill to teleport to the Grim Guzzler in BRD.
- If you have this item, you can approach the roadies at the The Tauren Chieftains drum set in the Grim Guzzler and trigger a performance by the band. This is especially handy during Brewfest because you can get the 5 minute +10% to all stats buff to help with the fight against Coren.
- In addition to the above benefits, using the remote to teleport to the Grim Guzzler allows players to skip most of BRD to access several areas of importance towards the end of the instance. These include the Black Anvil, The Black Forge, the entrance to (and  for) Molten Core, and the Emperor Dagran Thaurissan encounter (whose defeat is needed for 10 ).
