Journey from Dragonblight to Grizzly Hills

Introduction

This guide is made for FAST leveling through the use of Optimized Quest Circuits. With this guide, questing will be very efficient and you'll not waste any second running around and trying to figure out in which order to do your quests. Follow each instruction carefully and you will see for yourself. The quest choices and order to do them are optimal so that you run as few as possible while doing the most possible, turning several quests at the same time. It will be like grinding, because you'll be killing stuff almost non-stop, besides you'll also be completing a bunch of quests at the same time!

NOTE: Following this guide will get you the Quest Achievement for Dragonblight: Might of Dragonblight. In fact, 100% of the quests of Dragonblight are included in the guide, or at least mentioned as optional.
You'll also get the following Achievement: Veteran of the Wrathgate.

Everything described in this guide can be done solo (beside when I say otherwise). You can, of course, follow this guide while duoing, grouping, it's not a problem, it works too.

DISCLAIMER: This guide does NOT take into account tradeskills, class specific quests or PvP. It's 100% focused on getting the most experience possible in the shortest possible time while doing a lot of quests and enjoying as much content as possible. Any race/class combination can do this guide. Any complaints about PvP, tradeskills, or class specific issues will be ignored.


Basic rules

  • Spend your talent points so that you kill things as fast as possible. (e.g: Priest should specialize in Shadow Talents, Warriors in Arms/Fury, etc.

  • Don't waste your time trying to find groups for questing, you can solo everything that is described in this guide unless I say otherwise. Only group with someone when it's not gonna be a waste of time (e.g: meeting the person at the other end of the zone to show him the way to where your quest is, that is a waste of time)

  • Try to always log out in an inn or in one of the major cities when you take a break.


Useful Addons

To get the most out of my guide, you should get an addon which displays coordinates, because I use them to describe locations in my guide (x,y). You can use any addon you like, but here's a very simple one I use.

Recommended

  • DMiniCoords - A simple box which displays coordinates, left-click it to move it where you like.

Optional

Below is a list of other addons I use, this is 100% optional though, it's mostly for people who are curious to know which addons I use:

Side Note: In case you don't know how to install add-ons, simply download an addon from one of the links above and unzip it. Then drag the unziped folder in your Addon folder (full path is c:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\Interface\\Addons). Then, restart World of Warcraft and it should be working.

If it isn't working, you might need to log out to your character selection screen and click on "Addons" in the lower-left corner. Tick the box that says "Load out of date Addons". Re-launch WoW.


Shopping List:

Bags - Try to at least have 18-slot bags. We'll go on long circuits far from any vendor, so bag space is necessary. If you can't afford 18-slot bags, go for 16-slot ones, they are much cheaper.

The Guide:

If you followed my previous WotLK Guides, you should be in Dragonblight and have the following quest:

  • [72] Emerald Dragon Tears

You should also have the flight path to Venomspite.

If you don't have that, simply go to my Howling Fjord Guide and use your browser's search function (CTRL + F) to find venomspite, follow the steps from there until you get the quest [72] Emerald Dragon Tears, then come back to this guide and follow it normally.

Let's get started!

1. Go to the Westwind Refugee Camp (13,49). Get the available quests:

  • [72] Into the Fold
  • [72] Pride of the Horde

2. Get out of the camp, kill Anub'ar Ambushers and look for Horde Armaments.

Once you finish both quests, go back to Westwind Refugee Camp. Turn in:

  • [72] Into the Fold, get the follow up [72] Blood Oath of the Horde
  • [72] Pride of the Horde

Talk to a Taunka'le Refugee, go through the chat until he becomes a member of the horde. Repeat this step 5 times.

Turn in [72] Blood Oath of the Horde, get [72] Agmar's Hammer.

3. Mount up and ride east to Agmar's Hammer (37,48).

Get the new flight path.

Turn in [72] Agmar's Hammer, get [72] Victory Nears...

Get [72] Rifle the Bodies.

Get out of the building and get the 3 wanted quests:

  • [74] Wanted: Dreadtalon
  • [74] Wanted: Gigantaur
  • [74] Wanted: Magister Keldonus

Get [72] Message from the West from Messenger Torvus who stands next to the mailbox.

Right-click the Letter from Saurfang and read it if you like lore, you don't have to though.

Right-click the Burning Brazier next to the mailbox.

Turn in [72] Message from the West.

Turn in [72] Victory Nears... and get [72] From the Depths of Azjol-Nerub.

A bunch of quests should have appeared on your minimap, grab the following ones:

  • [72] Black Blood of Yogg-Saron
  • [72] Containing the Rot
  • [72] From the Depths of Azjol-Nerub
  • [72] Marked for Death: High Cultist Zangus
  • [74] The High Executor Needs You

Bofore we go on, here's a map with the locations of all the group quest mobs you have to kill in Dragonblight. Some of them have been reported to be soloed by certain classes (and with very good gear), but for the average players and class, you really will want a group of 3 players to be safe.

Please note that at this point you don't have all the group quests, you only have the 3 wanted quests we just took. So ignore the rest for now, and check back on this map whenever you get a group for either of those group quests, you'll find your targets very quickly that way.

Keep following the guide normally and just go for those group quests when the opportunity arises.


1. Ride west until you reach the the area just east of Azjol-Nerub (30,50).

Kill Rabbid Grizzlies and Blighted Elks until you have 15 Infected Wildlife kills and have looted a Rot Resistant Organ (random drop from those)

More Grizzlies and Elks can be found all around the Pit of Narjun.

2. Go inside the Pit of Narjun (27,50).

Look for Black Blood of Yogg-Saron.

Right-click Ironbender's Mining Pick and then left-click the mining node.

Let yourself fall down in one of the holes and go to Kilix the Unravaler. Get his 4 quests:

  • [72] An Enemy in Arthas
  • [74] Death to the Traitor King
  • [74] Don't Forget the Eggs!
  • [76] The Faceless Ones

From Kilix the Unraveler, take the middle tunnel going east, at the end of it you'll find High Cultist Zangus. Kill him and loot the Head of High Cultist Zangus.

Now just kill 6 Abu'ar Underlords and mine 10 Black Blood of Yogg-Saron.

Go back to Kilix the Unraveler, turn in [72] An Enemy in Arthas, get [72] The Lost Empire.


Instance: Azjol-Nerub

You have all the quests for the normal version of the instance Azjol-Nerub.

  • [74] Death to the Traitor King
  • [74] Don't Forget the Eggs!

So from now on, if you feel like it, you should look for a group for Azjol-Nerub (Abbreviation: AZN). It's a very quick instance for level 72-74 players, I recommend it.

If you don't feel like it or if you don't find a group, you can abandon the above quests. They can easily be picked up in the future anyway, if you change your mind.


Instance: Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom

You also have the quest for the normal version of the instance Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom.

  • [76] The Faceless Ones

So from now on, if you feel like it, you should look for a group for Ahn'kahet. It's for level 73-75 players and I also recommend it.

If you don't feel like it or if you don't find a group, you can abandon the above quests. They can easily be picked up in the future anyway, if you change your mind.


3. Get out of the pit.

Ride southwest to Moonrest Gardens.
You'll find Ethenial Moonshadow at (24,60).
Get his quest [72] Avenge this Atrocity!

Look for Dead Mage Hunters.

Dismount and loot the corpse, you'll receive a Mage Hunter's Personal Effects.

==Note== The corpses just disappear if you don't dismount.

Right-click them and loot the contents. Repeat this step until you find the Moonrest Gardens Plans.

4. Ride back to Agmar's Hammer. Turn in:

  • [72] Containing the Rot, get [72] The Good Doctor...
  • [72] The Good Doctor..., get [73] In Search of the Ruby Lilac

  • [72] From the Depths of Azjol-Nerub, get [72] The Might of the Horde
  • [72] Rifle the Bodies, get [73] Prevent the Accord
  • [72] The Lost Empire

Also get [72] Strength of Icemist from Greatmother Icemist.

Sell junk, repair and re-stock food/drink.

1. Ride west to Icemist Village (27,43).

On the south side you should see a series of connected huts.

Right-click the Flesh-bound tome, get [72] The Flesh-Bound Tome.

6. Go west, jump off the cliff and go back to Banthok Icemist.

Turn in [72] Chains of the Anub'ar, get [73] Return of the High Chief.

1. Face north and stick to the wall on your right-hand side, until you find a path going back up to the upper floor (24,40).

2. Go to Roanauk Icemist, a taunka chained in the middle of the village (25,41).

Clear some space around him, get back to full HP/mana.

Right-click the Anub'ar Prison Mechanism.

Help the taunka defeat Under-King Anub'et'kan (let them tank for you).

A big husk will appear on the floor upon Under-King Anub'et'kan's death.

Right-click it and loot a Fragment of Anub'et'kan's Husk.

Defend it until you get a complete message.

Kill some more in the village until you finish [72] Scourge Armaments.

Ride to southwest to a big stone building (18,60).

Find and kill Wind Trader Mu'fah . He's standing infront of the door of that big stone building.

Kill Goramosh, loot The Scales of Goramosh.

Right-click it to start [72] A Strange Device.

==Note== While you're here, try to see if there's any group up for killing Magister Keldonus for the quest [74] Wanted: Magister Keldonus. He's really close so might as well kill two birds with one stone. Some classes reported being able to solo it, but I wouldn't risk it, duo'ing is already much more realistic. 3+ is best.

4. From this point on, kill every Blue Dragonflight mob on your way.

Get out of the building and clear the way to the other side of the crater until you finish
[72] Avenge this Atrocity!

Mount the Kor'kron War Rider.

It's a simple air fight mission. You have to kill 25 Anub'ar Blightbeasts.

Ignore Ability #1, it sucks.
Use Ability #2 every 10 seconds while trying to catch as many bats as you can in one shot.
Use Ability #3 when you're very low on health, it's almost a complete heal.

Always keep moving, you will dodge Blighted Shrieks that way.

Loot the Plume of Alystros. Go back to Nishera the Garden Keeper and turn in [74] The Plume of Alystros.

Right-click the Ruby Beacon of the Dragon Queen.

A Wyrmrest Vanquisher will fly down to you. Right-click it to climb it.

Now things get fun. See, you can use this Wyrmrest Vanquisher everywhere in the Dragon Wastes, which means we basically have a flying mount for a big chunk of the map, and we're going to make the most of it. Just remember to always fly low, so that you don't die if the drake decides to drop you off without a warning and without a parachute (I learned the hard way Sticking out tongue).

==Warning== Don't turn in the quest [74] On Ruby Wings until I tell you to, or you won't be able to summon the drake anymore.

4. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, fly north to Galakrond's Rest (56,35).

Go down in the pit and use Ability #1 and Ability #2 to kill Wastes Scavengers.
Whenever your drake needs mana or healing, use Ability #3 while being close to a Wastes Scavenger.

Kill 30 Wastes Scavenger that way.

==Note== Before we go kill Grand Necrolord Antiok, equip your PvP trinket if you got one with you, because he casts a 10 second fear, quite annoying and it can potentially get you killed.

Then go to the peak at the northwestern tip of Galakron's Rest, kill the big giant called Thiassi and then land next to his corpse and dismount. Get ready to fight Grand Necrolord Antiok, a level 75 warlock.

After he dies, the Scythe of Antiok will appear on the floor.

Loot it.

Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher again and fly away before the giant respawns.

1. Fly west/southwest to Dragon's Fall where you'll find Kontokanis (47,33).

Dismount, get [73] Pest Control.

==Note== While you're here, try to see if there's any group up for killing Dreadtalon for the quest [74] Wanted: Dreadtalon. He's really close so might as well kill two birds with one stone. Some classes reported being able to solo it, but I wouldn't risk it, duo'ing is already much more realistic. 3+ is best.

2. Go east until you're back in the Dragon Wastes. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher.

Fly to the Snowbold Camp just south of Galakrond's Rest (55,41).

Kill all the Snobolds and Magnataurs you can find here.

Also look in the skies for a Reanimated Frost Wyrm.

Target it and right-click the Seeds of Nature's Wrath, then kill it.

3. Summon your drake. Fly south to another Snobold / Magnataur camp (56,52).

Kill them all and you should be done with [73] Pest Control. If you aren't, just look for other snowbold camps, there are many around here and they are easy to spot.

Once you're done, summon your drake and fly back to Dragon's Fall.
Dismount the drake and get on your normal mount before you turn in the quest.

Turn in [73] Pest Control, get the follow up [73] Canyon Chase.

4. Chase the fleeing snowbolds into the canyon.

You'll run into a magnataur called Icefist.

Kill him and loot the Emblazoned Battle Horn.

Right-click it to start [73] Disturbing Implications.

Go back to Dragon's Fall, turn in [73] Canyon Chase.

Enter the Dragon Wastes, summon the drake, fly to Wyrmrest Temple's ground floor.

Turn in [73] Disturbing Implications, get [73] One of a Kind from Aurastrasza.

1. Fly west to a canyon at (51,58). Look for Bonesunder, a magnataur who patrols the ledge above this canyon, going in between the above location and the azure dragonshrine.

He's elite and immune to all forms of cc but he only has 21K HP and doesn't hit too hard as long as you avoid his Bone Crack ability, so just burn him down quickly and you should be fine, use cooldowns and potions if needed.

The only dangerous ability he has is Bone Crack. When he casts that, run away quickly and it won't hit you.

Loot the Emblazoned Battle Horn.

2. Summon your drake again and fly back to Wyrmrest Temple, turn in [73] One of a Kind, get the follow up [73] Mighty Magnataur.

3. Summon your drake, fly northeast to (68,41), there you'll find a named magnataur called Drakegore, he patrols up and down around this spot.

He's elite but soloable, doesn't hit too hard, can be snared, stunned, feared, rooted. He also has an aura which does 300 fire damage to enemies in his melee range, nothing too bad.

4. Ride south to (67,50). There you'll find another named magnataur, Iceshatter. He roams around the frozen lake in this area.

He's more tricky to kill than the previous one. He's immune to movement impairing effects so clothies might have a little bit of trouble, however he doesn't much hit points so you can burn him down before he kills you.

He periodically casts Pulsing Shards. This is very dangerous and can't be interrupted. Either run away while he channels it or use something like cloak of shadows, divine shield, ice block.

I personally had no troubles soloing it with my frost mage wearing only quest greens. I sent my water elemental first and let him tank as much as possible, used icy veins and a trinket and burned him down as fast as possible.

After you've killed Iceshatter, in the frozen lake just a few steps south you should find Ice Revenants.

Beat one down to 35% HP and then right-click the Frost Gem.

5. Go back to the Dragon Wastes, summon your drake and fly south to (67,70). There you should find another magnataur called Bloodfeast.

That one is also tricky, immune to all forms of cc. He summons maggots which heal him up. The maggots are immune to AoE abilities, so you'd have to target them and kill them one by one (they got 1000HP). By the time you'd be done with that, he'd summon another round of maggots. So here is the strategy: Ignore the maggots, burn him down as fast as you can.

Worked just fine for me even with characters wearing quest greens.

Summon the drake, fly back to Wyrmrest Temple. Turn in [73] Mighty Magnataur, get [74] Reclusive Runemaster.

Sell junk, repair and re-stock food/drink.


Now we're all set for most of the group quests of Dragonblight. These can't be soloed by most classes, so look for a group while you keep on following the guide.

Here's a list of the quests you need to find a group for:

  • [74] The Plume of Alystros
  • [74] Wanted: Dreadtalon
  • [74] Wanted: Gigantaur
  • [74] Wanted: Magister Keldonus
  • [74] Reclusive Runemaster

Once you finish [74] Reclusive Runemaster (defeat Dreg'mar, get the follow up [74] Wanton Warlord (kill Grom'thar) and also look for a group for it.
Once you finish all 3 wanted quests, get the follow up [75] To Dragon's Fall, also look for a group for it.

Here is a map showing the location of all those objectives.

You can get there quickly thanks to your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, so just keep on following the guide normally and whenever you find a group for one of the above quests, summon your drake and fly there!

  • Level 72 Elite Humanoid
  • Immune to movement impairing effects, fear, etc
  • HPs: 96,000
  • Hits for ~3k on clothies

You'll most likely need a tank and a healer for this one.

She can be found in the big cathedral in New Hearthglen (70,76). There's a level 80 elite next to her but he doesn't add if you pull Abbendis, so don't worry about it.

If you can't do this quest, just proceed with the guide and keep on looking for help regularly for both all those group quests, you can easily get there anyway with your Wyrmrest Vanquisher.

Get:

  • [74] Harp on This!

Right-click Xink's Shredder Control Device.

Go westwards while doing the following two things:

  • Kill harpies on your way (Use Ability #1 and #2 - Also use Ability #4 whenever your shredder lacks 5000 HP or more)
  • Look for trees with a cross:


Use Ability #6 while standing close to them.

Ability #3 is just a 10 sec run speed boost, use it at will.

2. Keep going west and then northwest and you'll find the Mistress of the Coldwind (45,10).
She's elite but it's no problem for you and your shredder.

==Note== Should your shredder get destroyed, you can re-summon one again.

Once you've killed the Mistress of the Coldwind, finish gathering lumber and killing harpies until you finish both quests.

3. Ride back to Nozzlerust Post, turn in:

  • [74] Harp on This!
  • [74] Lumber Hack

Get [74] Stiff Negotiations.

4. Go east until you enter the Dragon Wastes, summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, fly northeast to Zort (59,18). Easy to spot thanks to the yellow "?" on your minimap. Don't worry about the warning message you get when you get out of the Dragon Wastes, you should have more than enough time to land next to Zort before your drake drops you.

Turn in [74] Stiff Negotiations, get [74] Slim Pickings.

5. Follow the trail north while avoiding the elite giants and then go northwest to the Ice Heart Cavern, inside the cave you'll find a Ravaged Crystalline Ice Giant (56,12) close to the entrance.

Get out of the cave, ride back to Zort.

Turn in [74] Slim Pickings, get [74] Messy Business.
Also get [74] Stomping Grounds from Ko'char the Unbreakable.

1. Go back to the Ice Heart Cave.

Put Zort's Scraper on an action bar.

Kill Ice Heart Jormungar Feeders and use Zort's Scraper whenever they cast Corosive Spit on you, this will remove the dot and prevent a lot of damage, and it will also complete the other quest.

Kill 8 Ice Heart Jormungar Feeders and remove the Corosive Acid twice, then ride back to Zort.

Turn in:

  • [74] Messy Business, get [74] Apply This Twice A Day
  • [74] Stomping Grounds
  • [74] Apply This Twice A Day

Get:

  • [74] Really Big Worm
  • [74] Worm Wrangler

[74] Really Big Worm cannot be soloed by most classes. The mob you have to kill, Rattlebore, is at the very end of the Ice Heart Cave. So just add this to your list of group quests and shout for a group regularly.

Rattlebore stats:

  • 72,000 HP
  • Hits for 2K on clothies
  • Immune to all forms of cc

Don't forget to drink Zort's Protective Elixir before you fight him, it will make things easier.

I recommend going there with 3 players to make it easier, including a tank type and a healer type.

Anyway, just add this quest to your list of group quests to do in Dragonblight, keep looking for a group for it regularly and continue with the guide in the mean time.

When you find a group for it, don't forget to do the other quest on the way while you're in the caves. It's quite easy, all you have to do is get close to a Jormungar Spawn and then:

Use the Sturdy Crates on it.

Then just right-click the crate on the floor. Repeat this 3 times. Can easily be done while clearing the way to Rattlebore.

Once you've finished those two quests, go back to Zort and turn in:

  • [74] No One to Save You
  • [74] No Place to Run

2. Clear the way out of the Obsidian Dragonshrine, until the point where the path becomes snowy again (42,32).

Get back to full HP/mana.

Right-click the Destructive Wards.

Defend the ward until you get the complete message.

Kill what you still need for [74] No One to Save You and go back to Serinar. Turn in:

  • [74] No One to Save You
  • [74] No Place to Run, get [74] The Best of Intentions

3. Serinar will give you a disguise.

Go west through the cave until you find Rothin the Decayed. You'll get the complete message, then go back to Serinar.

==Note== If you lose the disguise, go back to Serinar and talk to him for a new one.

Turn in [74] The Best of Intentions, get:

  • [74] Culling the Damned
  • [74] Defiling the Defilers

4. Clear the way west towards the end of the cave while looking for Necromantic Runes.

Right-click them to destroy them.

Kill what you need for [74] Culling the Damned.

Go back to Serinar. Turn in:

Kill him.

Kill stuff in the area until you have 15 Scourge kills.

Go back to Light's Trust, turn in [74] The Cleansing Of Jintha'kalar, get [75] Into the Breach!

1. Follow the road west and then go southwest to the Bronze Dragonshrine (72,38). We're about to trigger an event where you'll help your "Future You" to defeat waves of dragons.

Just let your Future You tank and kill things one at a time to be safe. If you die it doesn't matter, just run back. Your "Future You" will finish the event, you'll get the quest complete message.

Right-click the Hourglass of Eternity from your inventory to start the event.

2. Go west and get back to the Dragon Wastes. Summon your drake.

Fly to Wyrmrest Temple.

==Warning== We're about to turn in the quest [74] On Ruby Wings. That means we won't be able to summon the Wyrmrest Vanquisher to travel anymore. So if you still have some of the group quests unfinished, try to do them now!

Summon your drake. Go to Tariolstrasz on the western side of the temple. Turn in [75] The Steward of Wyrmrest Temple, get [75] Informing the Queen.

  • Ability #2: DoT. Use it once at the start of a fight.
  • Ability #3: Self heal
  • Ability #4: Use it to escape when you get attacked by several dragons at the same time
  • Ability #5: Go inside the big beam in the Azure Dragonshrine and use it once.

Fun quest, kill dragons. Not much else to say, it's rather easy, just escape and heal up if things get dangerous.

This is a daily quest by the way, and you get an achievement if you finish it in under 2 minutes.

When done, go back to Lord Afrasastrasz and turn in [74] Defending Wyrmrest Temple.

Ask him to fly you back to the ground level.

Go to the flightmaster and fly to Kor'kron Vanguard.

Go to Saurfang the Younger, turn in [74] Return To Angrathar.

Talk to Thrall, tell him you're ready. Or if someone else already started the event, just stand by Thrall until it starts.

Now all you have to do is follow Thrall and Sylvannas through this amazing quest. You're pretty much unkillable thanks to the auras you get from Thrall and Sylvannas, but don't be too reckless though. Have fun and help them fight till the end of the event.

At the end of the script, turn in [74] The Battle For The Undercity.

This will teleport you to the zeppelin pad.

While you're here, you can go train your new skills, visit the AH, etc.

Once you're ready to go again, go take the zeppelin to Borean Tundra and fly to Venomspite, Dragonblight.

Try a last time to get a group for the group quests of Dragonblight, if you don't find one, just abandon those groups quests now, we are done with Dragonblight. You can come back here at level 80 to finish those group quests.

This guide ends here, time to go to go to Grizzly Hills. Follow my Grizzly Hills Guide.

Don't be fooled, these are

Don't be fooled, these are not the usual 3-man quests you're used to. They are generally way too hard for most classes to solo.

We're talking about mobs which are commpletely immune to all forms of cc, hit for 3K on cloth and have about 100K HP.

All I can say is that I tried to solo them with my mage and it was just too difficult. I tried with my rogue (who is full epics from BT/SP) and didn't even get close.

Of course there might be a way for you to solo them, like kiting with dots for 20 minutes. A holy paladin can probably grind them down too, it will also take them quite a while. And I'm sure plenty other classes can find ways to solo them.

But in my experience it's just easier to find a couple of peopel for those quests, and it's probably going to be faster too.

Possible, but not advised

As a Demonology Warlock, I've been able to solo every group quest through the end of Dragonblight except when I got careless with the Rune Giants in Howling Fjord. The 2-man and some 3-mans can be done with a Felguard, the rest generally require the Voidwalker.

It does require patience and an accurate threat meter. Send in the Blueberry, apply Curse of Weakness, Siphon Life and Corruption, and then channel Improved Health Funnel. With careful balancing of the dots, I can usually stay under the Voidwalker's threat level for the entire fight. Everything dies eventually if the fight goes on long enough.

Every now and then, someone tries to "help" me with a boss. They pull aggro and die, and then the VW picks up the fight again while the helper runs back from the graveyard. For most players, soloing them is not an option. Get a group.

(I read through the combat log after taking down Sarathstra and was stunned at the damage numbers he was capable of putting out. If I had known beforehand he also had 265K life, I wouldn't have gone anywhere near him.)

Soloing Group Quests

While trying to solo some of these quests I ve found that not every elite is immune to CC. From what I ve tested, Gigantaur, can be slowed(tested with Daze from Treants), snared(tested with Entangling Roots) and stunned(tested with Celestial Focus proc from Starfall/Starfire.

Magister Keldonus was easily soloable with some heals, but I didnt notice if he can be stunned(it was at time, when I assumed that every group quest elite is immune to any form of CC).

Dreadtalon was probably the easiest one to solo, I didnt need to use my heals, I ve just zerged him down.

Dregmar will probably be the same as Gigantaur because I ve managed to stun him(again with Celestial Focus proc). I havent tested snares/roots tho, but I guess they will work.

Really Big Work Group Quest was soloable as long as I ve used that potion to protect me from his DoTs. He was immune to any form of CC, tho.

Alystros, Abbendis, Sarasthra and Gromthar were all immune to CC and I was unable to solo them

Hope you like this one too

Hope you like this one too guys! Eye

few errors

I didn't write it down because I assumed I wouldn't be posting, but you have a few errors. One being, you listed an alliance quest in here (so if you don't realize what the quest is, its likely that one) - also, you say

"Turn in: [72] Strengthen the Ancients"

but there isn't any time mentioning to pick it up.

Thank you, fixed it. Can't

Thank you, fixed it.

Can't find the alliance quest you're talking about though, so if anyone finds it, please tell me.

Observation on your Dragonblight (74-75) guide...

Going through the Dragonblight (Horde)guide, I made an observation, that the quest:

[72]Imbeciles Abound!

... is only mentioned once as a pick-up quest from an NPC (in Agmar's Hammer), however, throughout the guide, their is no indication of it being completed or being turned in. This may be an error, or it may be a quest to your next guide in the zone of Grizzly hills.

Thanks.

Well spotted. Removed it, we

Well spotted. Removed it, we don't do that quest, as we already did the other one in Howling Fjord, which leads to the same follow up.

Loc Addition

I was doing the quest Chains of the Anub'ar. The guide puts Tivax the Breaker at (24,39) which I'm sure he spawns at. However I found him at (26,39). Just figured that might help if anyone else is looking for him but he isn't spawning at the 24,39 loc.
