Chapter 6 - [Level 65 - 70]

Journey from Terokkar to Netherstorm

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!

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.

  • When I say you should make an inn your new home location, it's for a good reason, and it will save you much time.


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.


Level 60-70 XP Curve Changes

As of patch 3.0, it takes much less XP to level from 60 to 70. That means you will probably ding much faster than what my guide says. That's not a problem at all though, just keep following the guide normally. I strongly recommend achieving level 70 before going to Northrend, I've explained many times why on my blog. In a nutshell, it's much more efficient and easy to go to Northrend at level 70. You'll level faster that way and also get more gold. I actually recommend going until the very end of my Outland guide before moving to Northrend, even if that means going there at level 71 or 72. That's if you want more gold. However it's up to you, going to Northrend at level 70 is fine too, you'll just get less gold in the end.

The Guide

If you followed my previous chapter, you should have the following quests:

  • [67] The Master's Grand Design?
  • [65] Return to Shattrath
  • [65] Skywing

You should be in Shattrath as well, if not, go there.
Go to the northern part of Lower City and find Rilak the Redeemed. Turn in [65] Return to Shattrath and [65] Skywing.

Right next to Rilak stands Defender Grashna, he should have a quest now: [65] The Skettis Offensive. Certain classes probably can't solo it, but you can give it a try. There are 4 waves: 2 birds, 2 birds, 3 birds, 1 big bird. The normal birds hit reasonably hard but have very few HPs. Make sure you eat/drink or bandage in between waves. Save your potion and cooldown abilities for the big bird. He hits for 1000 on cloth but he can be kited, polymorphed, hibernated, stunned, feared, etc. If you can’t manage it, ask for help, there’s a lot of people in Shattrath doing nothing but standing there and looking pretty Sticking out tongue
Turn in [65] The Skettis Offensive for 16000xp and a decent necklace.


Sell junk and repair. Get out of Shattrath, ride southwest to Nagrand (20,56).

==Note== In Nagrand, kill any Wild Elekk you see and loot their tusks. You'll need 10 Pair of Ivory Tusks for a quest later on.
Also kill any Dust Howler you see, until one of them drops Howling Wind. Right-click it to start the quest [67] The Howling Wind.

1. In Nagrand follow the road northwest and then west until you find a goblin on the left side of the road called Wazat (62,67). Get his quest [66] I Must Have Them!

2. Go norhteast until you hit the road again and follow it north until you reach Nesingwary Safari (71,40). Get the 3 mastery quests.

Start to kill Windrocs, Clefthoofs, Talbuk Stags and Dust Howlers in the area. Stay relatively close to the Nesingwary Safari and keep checking if a gnome NPC named Kristen Dipswitch shows up. When she comes, she will get attacked by an undead NPC, defend her and she will have a quest for you: [65] I'm Saved!, turn it in immediately for 11000 easy XP.
Keep killing everything in the area until you get a Howling Wind, right-click it and start the quest [67] The Howling Wind.

If Kristen still hasn't shown up when you find a Howling Wind, just go to the next step. We'll come back here soon.

3. Go west to Garadar (57,35). Get the new flight path.


Go to the inn, make it your home location.

Gather the following quests:

  • [65] The Impotent Leader
  • [66] The Throne of the Elements
  • [66] Vile Idolatry
  • [66] Wanted: Giselda the Crone
  • [66] Wanted: Zorbo the Advisor
  • [67] Missing Mag'hari Procession
  • [67] Murkblood Leaders...
  • [67] Proving Your Strength
  • [67] The Missing War Party

4. Go northeast to the Throne of the Elements (61,23).

Turn in:

  • [67] The Howling Wind, get the follow up [67] Murkblood Corrupters
  • [66] The Throne of the Elements

Get the other quests:

  • [65] A Rare Bean
  • [66] Muck Diving
  • [65] The Underneath

There's a big rock giant called "Gordawg" at the throne of the elements. Go talk to him and turn in [65] The Underneath, get the follow up [65] The Tortured Earth.

5. Now go back to the area around Nesingwary Safari.

Here is a little map to help you find everything quickly:

Kill everything there, including Tortured Earth Spirits and Dust Howlers, until you complete the following objectives:

  • Finish the 3 mastery quests
  • Find 3 Air Elemental Gas, which drop from Dust Howlers
  • Finish [65] The Tortured Earth

If you still haven't seen Kristen Dipswitch at this point, just forget it. She's just a single quest with no follow up, so it doesn't matter.

Go back to Nesingwary Safari, turn in the 3 quests and get the 3 follow ups.

==Note== You don't need to kill Dust Howlers on the way anymore.

6. Go south then southwest to Wazat (62,67). Turn in [66] I Must Have Them! get the follow up [66] Bring Me The Egg!
Now you must find help to do the follow up, because you'll have to fight a level 66 elite bird, and most classes can't solo it, he's immune to slowing effects like frostbolts, but he can be frost nova'd. 2 players should be enough.
While looking for help, you can go grind on ogres east of here, or at the Kil'sorrow fortress southeast, which is very good for aldors especially.
If you can't find help, just abandon the quest and skip the rest of this paragraph to step 7. You can come back later on at level 70 for this quest, as the rewards are quite nice.

Once you got help, go back to the goblin, and now you have to use the Jump-a-tron 4000 to land on that tree branch with the big egg called "Mysterious Egg".

The trick is to position yourself exactly in the middle of the Jump-a-tron and have your character face the middle of the nest. Then click the Jump-a-tron 4000, change your camera view so you can see below and as soon as you're almost above the nest, click off the levitation buff. It should take a few tries to get the timing right and you might die from falling if you click it off too early, so be careful with that.

If you really can't manage it, there is another way, but it requires a 100% speed mount:

Flying Mount Trick

7. Get back on the road, ride east and then southeast and enter Terokkar. After entering Terokkar, go south and stick to the right. You should soon see a yellow "?" on the minimap. Go there and find Kilrath (20,60). Turn in [65] The Impotent Leader, get the follow up [65] Don't Kill the Fat One.

South of Kilrath is an ogre camp called Bleeding Hollow Ruins. Go there, kill 10 Boulderfist Invaders and then find Unkor the Ruthless (20,63). Beat him down until he turns friendly and you'll be able to turn in [65] Don't Kill the Fat One. Get the follow up [65] Success!

Go back to Kilrath, turn in [65] Success! and get the follow up [65] Because Kilrath is a Coward.

Hearthstone back to Garadar.


Re-stock food and drink. Sell junk (be careful not to sell the Elekk Tusks) and repair.

Turn in [65] Because Kilrath is a Coward, get the follow up [65] Message in a Battle. Also get the other quest which just became available, [65] Standards and Practices.

1. Exit Garadar by the western gate and grab the quest [66] The Consortium Needs You! on the way.

2. Just north of the consortium NPC, you should find an area with a lot of Clefthoof Bulls and Talbuk Thorngrazers. Kill them while gathering 15 Digested Caracoli for the quest [65] A Rare Bean. They are glowing piles of dung, easy to spot Sticking out tongue

3. As soon as you have finished [65] A Rare Bean, go northeast around the lake, to the Throne of the Elements. Turn in [65] A Rare Bean, get the follow up [65] Agitated Spirits of Skysong.
Also turn in [65] The Tortured Earth, get the follow up [66] Eating Damnation.

4. Go dive in the lake south, use a Nagrand Cherry and kill 12 Lake Spirits.
Go back to the throne of the elements, turn in [65] Agitated Spirits of Skysong, get the follow up [65] Blessing of Incineratus.

5. Go west/southwest, killing Clefthoof Bulls, Talbuk Thorngrazers and Enraged Crushers on the way (you can see their locations on the map), until you reach the ledge at (41,29).

==Note== From now on, if you see Murkblood Invaders (3 Murkblood invaders riding eleks), kill them. You don't have to kill all 3, you just need to kill one and loot the Murkblood Invasion Plans from them. Check the minimap below to see their patrol route. We don't need those plans right now, so don't go looking for them, just kill them if you see them while doing other quests.

6. Stay in the area with the number 2. on the map and kill stuff until you finish [66] Talbuk Mastery and [67] Clefthoof Mastery, and you should also be at least 9/15 done with [66] Eating Damnation.

7. Go south/southeast to The Abandoned Armory (51,57). Go inside, turn in [67] The Master's Grand Design? and get the follow up [67] Vision of the Dead.

8. Just southwest of here lay large plains with a lot of Ravenous Windrocs (49,62). First kill the 3 Enraged Crushers near the northern ledge of the plains (they are marked on the map). Then stay in this area and kill 30 Ravenous Windrocs and kill the 3 Enraged Crushers another time when they respawn. You should be done with [66] Eating Damnation and [67] Windroc Mastery.

1. Go southeast and find the bridge to cross the Telari Basin at (55,63). Cross the bridge and ride east to the Burning Blade Ruins (73,70). at this location you should find the First Burning Blade Pyre, stand close to it and use the Mag'har Battle Standard from your inventory.

2. Clear the way up the mountain, to the Second Burning Blade Pyre (75,70). Use the battle standard.

3. Go further up and east in the mountain and you should quickly find the Third Burning Blade Pyre (76,68). Use the battle standard.

Now all we have left to do is to kill ogres until we finish [65] Message in a Battle.

4. Clear the way out of the Burning Blade Ruins and ride north to Windyreed Village (72,50). Set the four huts on fire with your Living Fire, which should be in your inventory. You have to stand inside the huts and in the middle of them for it to work.

5. Ride north to Nesingwary Camp, turn in the 3 mastery quests, get the 3 follow ups.

6. Ride northwest to the Throne of the Elements, turn in:

  • [66] Eating Damnation, get the follow up [67] Shattering the Veil
  • [65] Blessing of Incineratus, get the follow up [66] The Spirit Polluted

7. Hearthstone back to Garadar (or run back). Turn in:

  • [65] Standards and Practices, get the follow up [66] Bleeding Hollow Supply Crates
  • [65] Message in a Battle, get the follow up [66] An Audacious Advance
  • [67] Murkblood Invaders if you already have it


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

1. Ride west to the ogre cave at (40,32) just north of Halaa. Clear the way to the cave. Kill ogres in this area until you finish [66] An Audacious Advance and have gathered 20 Bleeding Hollow Supply Crate.

2. Go south to Halaani Basin (41,38). Kill Muck Spawns until you get 5 Muck-ridden Cores.

3. When you're done, find the exit on the northwestern side of the basin (37,38). Mount up and go west to the Mag'hari Procession (33,36). Turn in:

  • [67] The Missing War Party, get the follow up [67] Once Were Warriors
  • [67] Missing Mag'hari Procession, get the follow up [67] War on the Warmaul

Also get [67] Finding the Survivors.

4. Go south through Sunspring Post, killing as many murkblood agents as possible on the way until you reach Sunspring Lake (35,43). Dive in, pop a Nagrand Cherry and complete the following 2 objectives :

  • Kill 10 Lake Surgers
  • Kill Watoosun’s Polluted Essence, a big elemental in the middle of the lake (33,50)

5. Go back to Sunspring Post, clear the way to the biggest building (31,42) and kill Ortor of Murkblood, then loot the Head of Ortor of Murkblood.

6. Just south of the big building you should find a small destroyed house (31,44). Inside the house should be 2 Murkblood Brutes next to a Mag'har Captive. Kill the two brutes and the captive should have a quest for you. Before you accept the quest, clear everything around the house and get full health, because as soon as you accept the quest [67] The Totem of Kardash you’ll get ambushed by 2 Murkblood Raider and 1 Murkblood Putrifier. Kill the putrifier first. Make sure you don’t let the Mag'har Captive die, as he is rather weak, compared to the usual escort quest NPCs. Don’t even think about looting, you probably won’t have the time, bandage or drink right after you finish the first fight and follow the captive.
There will be a 2nd ambush further up the road, composed of 6 mobs: 2 Putrifiers, 1 Brute and 3 Scavengers. So save your cooldowns and pot timers for that one, it will be the most difficult part. Kill the 2 Putrifiers first quickly, don't let them channel their lightning cloud, then kill the brute. The Mag'har Captive will probably have killed the 3 scavengers by that time. If you manage this 2nd ambush you’ll finish the escort sucessfully.
This escort is rather hard compared to other escort quests, so if you don’t manage it, try to find help. If you can’t find help and don’t manage to solo it, just abandon it, save it for later for some easy cash at level 70.

Note: This quest is also one of the pre-requisites for the very cool quest chain involving Thrall.

When done with the escort, go back to Sunspring Village and kill stuff until you complete [66] Vile Idolatry, [67] Murkblood Corrupters and [67] Once Were Warriors.

7. Go back to the Mag'hari Procession, turn in [67] Once Were Warriors, get the follow up [67] He Will Walk The Earth...

8. Ride to the Throne of the Elements, turn in:

  • [67] Murkblood Corrupters
  • [66] Muck Diving
  • [66] The Spirit Polluted

9. Ride to Garadar, turn in:

  • [67] The Totem of Kar'dash
  • [66] An Audacious Advance, get the follow up [66] Diplomatic Measures
  • [66] Bleeding Hollow Supply Crates
  • [66] Vile Idolatry
  • [67] He Will Walk The Earth...
  • [67] Murkblood Leaders...

This should easily make you ding level 66. If for some reason you are not 66, you should go do an instance or grind.

You should also be honored with the Mag'har now, so you might want to go see the Quartermaster in Garadar and see if there's anything good for you.

Fly to Shattrath, take a portal to a main city and go train your new skills, visit the AH, make space in your bags, re-stock on consumables, etc.

When you're ready to go again, hearthstone back to Garadar.

Level 66


==Note== From now on, if you see a Caverns of Time: Old Hillsbrad group forming up, try to join it. This is the right level for it, it's a fun instance and it gives a lot of xp, about ~20% of a level per run.

Your quest log should look like this at the moment:

  • [66] Diplomatic Measures
  • [66] Talbuk Mastery
  • [66] The Consortium Needs You!
  • [66] Wanted: Giselda the Crone
  • [66] Wanted: Zorbo the Advisor
  • [67] Clefthoof Mastery
  • [67] Finding the Survivors
  • [67] Proving Your Strength
  • [67] Shattering the Veil
  • [67] Vision of the Dead
  • [67] War on the Warmaul
  • [67] Windroc Mastery

1. Follow the road southeast to the Burning Blade Ruins. This time we're not here to kill ogres, but to find Lantresor of the Blade, who is located at the northernmost point of the ruins at (74,63). When you find him, listen to his tale and then turn in the quest [66] Diplomatic Measures, get the 2 follow ups:

  • [66] Armaments for Deception
  • [66] Ruthless Cunning

2. Exit the ruins and go southwest to Kil'sorrow Fortress (70,76). In this fortress, complete those 4 objectives:

  • Kill 15 Kil'sorrow Agents
  • Plant 20 Warmaul Banners on Kil'sorrow agent corpses
  • Gather 20 Kil'sorrow Armaments, they are big crates scattered everywhere in the fortress
  • Kill Giselda the Crone, she can be found inside the biggest building in the southern part of the fortress.

3. Go back to Lantresor and turn in the two quests, get the two follow ups:

  • [66] Body of Evidence
  • [66] Returning the Favor

4. Mount up, ride back to Garadar.

Turn in [66] Wanted: Giselda the Crone.


Sell and repair, re-stock food and drink, this will be a long circuit.

Now that you're level 66, the quest [68] He Called Himself Altruis... should be available, pick it up.

==Note== By now you should have a lot of Oshu'gun Crystal Powder Sample. Whenever Halaa is under Horde control, you should go there and turn in each 20 Crystals you got at the Chief Researcher Amereldine. This quest is repeatable and gives an extra 8750XP everytime, so it's quite a nice source of XP.

1. Exit Garadar by the west gate and go northwest to the Laughing Skull Ruins (50,22). Kill ogres and plant Kil'sorrow Banners on their corpses.

First, clear the way to the Blazing Warmaul Pyre (46,24). Use the Damp Woolen Blanket from your inventory, 2 ogres will spawn, defend them while they do their thing until you get a complete message.

Now clear the way towards the northernmost cave of Laughing Skull Ruins, which can be found higher up the hills at (46,19). Inside the cave you should see Zorbo the Advisor, kill him.

Kill ogres and plant banners into their corpses until you finish [66] Wanted: Zorbo the Advisor and [66] Returning the Favor.

2. Next part is probably the funniest, quickiest and most rewarding quest line of all times, but it is also difficult even for a full group of 65-67s: The Ring of Blood. You can find the quest giver for this 5-man quest line just west of the Laughing Skull Ring (43,21).

You will have to complete 6 quests, each consisting in defeating a boss mob in the pit just below the quest giver. You will need a full group of level 65+s, including a decent tank and a healer. Setting up such a group can take time, so we're gonna do other things while we try to build up a group for this event. Grind on the ogres while looking for a group.

You also need to finish your mastery quests now, and the last two mobs we need to kill can't be soloed by most classes, but can be duo'd by any class mix. So look for help for those last two mastery quests while also looking for a Ring of Blood group. The map below shows where Gutripper (windroc mastery) and Bach'lor (Talbuk Mastery) are. So this is the time to call for help from your guild and friends, since you've got plenty of elite quests to do, you could do them all in one bunch.

3. In the meantime, grinding on those ogres is a good thing because they give good money, cloth, Mag'har reputation and ogre warbeads (for Consortium or Mag'Har rep).

Aldors: You should grind at the Kil'Sorrow Fortress for more Aldor faction.

Both:

If you really can't find help and are tired of grinding, go to the next paragraph and proceed with the guide, but keep looking for help for the above mentioned elite quests! We need to finish all 3 mastery quests before the end of this long circuit.

1. Head west of the Laughing Skull Ruins, to an area with Greater Windrocs and Aged Clefthoofs (36,19). Kill them all, luckily one of them will drop what we need for [67] Vision of the Dead. If not, just move on, we'll kill more of them later on.

2. Head further west to another area with Windrocs and Clefhoofs (33,22), kill them too if you still need either of their drops. Still no luck? No problem, move on.

3. Go south, stay close to the mountain on your right-hand side, kill windrocs and clefthoofs as you go (if you still need them). You should soon find a path going up to Warmaul Hills (30,32). You should find a Mountain Gronn roaming up and down that path. Kill one, they are elite but can be soloed rather easily if you use everything you got. Loot a Mountain Gronn Eyeball from it.

4. Go further up inside the hills, kill ogres and loot Warmaul Prison Keys from them. Then use those keys to free Mag'har Prisoners.

Keep killing ogres in this area until you finish [67] War on the Warmaul and [67] Finding the Survivors.

==Note== You should already have 10 Obsidian Warbeads for the quest [67] Proving Your Strength at this point. If you don't, kill ogres in this area and finish it before you leave.

5. Get off the mountain, kill Windrocs if you still need their drop.

6. Head south to the Mag'hari Procession (32,36). Turn in [67] Finding the Survivors and [67] War on the Warmaul, get the follow up [67] Cho'war the Pillager.

7. Follow the road southwest until you find Altruis the Sufferer (27,43). Turn in [68] He Called Himself Altruis..., get the follow up [68] Survey the Land. Enjoy the ride and turn in the quest at the end. Do not get the follow up, we'll do it later. However, if you already have a group willing to do the chain, feel free to do so now.

8. If you still need the drop from the Aged Clefthoof, a couple of them can be found near Forge Camp: Fear and Forge Camp: Hate.
If they don't drop it, carry on. There's more to kill.

9. Mount up, get back on the road and follow it south until you find Aeris Landing (31,58). Get the following quests:

  • [66] Matters of Security
  • [67] Gava'xi

Turn in:

  • [66] The Consortium Needs You!, get the follow up [66] Stealing from Thieves
  • [66]A Head Full of Ivory, which you can turn in immediately, since you’ve been killing Eleks on sight for a while now and should have 3 tusks at least. If you don’t have them it’s no problem, you can turn that quest in later, but you better get serious on the Elek hunting from now on !
==Note== [66]A Head Full of Ivory is no longer available once you become friendly with the Consortium. So just ignore this quest if you're already friendly with them.

If you got extra sets of 3 tusks, you can turn in more of them for Consortium reputation, until you are friendly with them.


Find the Consortium Quartermaster, sell junk and repair.

1. Go south to the Spirit Fields (34,65). The first thing you're gonna do is look for a group to kill Banthar, a named clefthoof you need for the last clefthoof mastery quest. You can see his patrol route here:

Most classes can’t solo it, but you can always try. He’s immune to movement impairing effects and fear, but can be stunned.

In the meantime, you have plenty of things to do in this area :

  • Kill 12 Voidspawns
  • Gather 10 Oshu'gun Crystal Fragments
  • Look for the Murkblood Invaders if you still haven't found them (there is a map of their pathing above), kill one of them and loot the Murkblood Invasion Plans. Right-click it and start the quest [67] Murkblood Invaders.
  • Kill Aged Clefthoofs if you still haven't found the Aged Clefthoof Blubber. They can be found mostly on the western and southern part of Oshu'gun. This is your last chance to get this drop, so keep killing until you get it.

If after that you still haven’t found help for Banthar, do the next steps, and keep looking for help, they are still relatively close.

2. Go southeast of Oshu’gun and kill Gava’xi, who spawns at (42,72) and walks to the top of the nearby hill.

3. Go southwest until you reach the edge of the zone (38,82). You can find Shattered Rumblers all along the edge if you go northwest from here. Use your Gordawg's Boulder on them and they will split into several Minions of Gurok. Kill 30 of them.

4. Go northeast to the Abandoned Armory (52,57). Turn in [67] Vision of the Dead, get the follow up [67] Levixus the Soul Caller. We won't be doing this quest in the guide, save it for level 70.

5. Go southeast and find the bridge to cross the Telari Basin at (55,63). Cross the bridge and ride east to the Burning Blade Ruins, go to Lantresor of the Blade. Turn in [66] Body of Evidence and [66] Returning the Favor, get the follow up [66] Message to Garadar.

6. Go north to Nesingwary Safari, turn in the 3 mastery quests, get the follow up [68] The Ultimate Bloodsport.

7. Go northeast to the Throne of the Elements, turn in [67] Shattering the Veil, get the follow up [67] Gurok the Usurper.

8. Ride to Garadar, turn in:

  • [67] Murkblood Invaders
  • [66] Message to Garadar
  • [66] Wanted: Zorbo the Advisor
  • [67] Proving Your Strength. If you have more Obsidian Warbeads, turn them in for extra Mag'har reputation.

Get the new available quest [67] Wanted: Durn the Hungerer.


Sell and repair, re-stock food/drink.

The next circuit is special, because you can do the follow steps in any order, it doesn't matter. Some of them are optional.

1. Ride to Aeris Landing, turn in:

  • [66] Matters of Security
  • [67] Gava'xi
  • [66] Stealing from Thieves

2. (Optional) Find a group for [67] The Ultimate Bloodsport.

Tusker is easily duoable (and can even be soloed by some classes). He's located at the top of a hill northeast of Oshu'gun at (43,65).
He's rather easy and the rewards are great so you should really try to do it.

3. (Optional) [67] Durn the Hungerer: that one requires at least 3 people, including a tank and a healer.
Durn the Hungerer makes a full circle around Oshu'gun.
If you can't find enough people for Durn the Hungerer, just move on and save it for level 70.

4. (Optional) [67] Gurok the Usurper: You need at least 2 people to kill this one, 3 makes it significantly easier. Once you have a group, go to Warmaul Hills (30,32). Move up the slope, ater a little while, on your right-hand side you should see a path going up and northwest. Follow it. You should soon reach a plateau, on the southern side of it is a cave entrance (27,23). To the left of the cave is a path going up, that's where the giant you need to summon and kill for [67] Gurok the Usurper is. One thing about Gurok if you do it, make sure to tell your group to fight with their backs to the mountain, because Gurok likes to knockback, and it will throw you off the mountain to a certain death.

5. (Optional) [67] Cho'war the Pillager: You need 2 or 3 people for this one. He's also found at Warmaul Hills, in the last cave on top of the mountain, to access it you have to go back to the plateau and go through the nothern cave (27,18).

==Note== Speaking of instance, you should try doing the Auchindoun: Sethekk Halls instance from now on. The two quests can be picked up in front of the instance. So if you see a group forming up, feel free to join it.

Level 67


Fly to Shattrath, take a portal to a city and train your new skills, visit the AH, etc.

==Note== You need to have the cooking skill for the raptor ribs quest to be available. It doesn't matter if you have just 1 point in the skill, so just find a cooking trainer and become an apprentice cook, this will unlock the quest for you.

When you're ready to go again, hearthstone back to Thunderlord Stronghold.

1. Go southwest to the bridge crossing Bloodmaul Ravine (48,65) and go to the other side. This will take you to the Living Grove (40,67). Kill every Fey Drake on your way from now on and loot Dust of the Fey Drake from them.

2. Find and kill Stronglimb Deeproot. He walks up and down the path in between Sylvanaar and the cave to the south. Loot Stronglimb Deeproot's Trunk.

After that, kill Fey Drakes until you complete the quest [66] Dust from the Drakes.

While doing the next steps, look for Bloodmaul Brew Kegs, until you have at least 11 of them. (Yes, at least one more than what the quest requires).

5. Clear the way south until the end of the ravine where you should find a cave. Outside of the cave you should find T'chali's Hookah (42,81).

6. Enter the cave, clear till the end of it and you should find the Thunderspike.

Get full HP/mana and then right-click it, this will spawn Gor Grimgut, kill him and loot The Thunderspike.

7. Kill ogres and gather kegs until you finish [66] The Bloodmaul Ogres and [66] They Stole Me Hookah and Me Brews!.

Then go back to T'chali, turn in the quest and get the follow up [66] Bladespire Kegger.

8. Go northwest to Bladespire Hold. Get close to an ogre, but without aggroing it. Right-click the Bloodmaul Brutebane Keg from your inventory. The ogre will come for the keg and you'll get a quest update. It doesn't matter if you kill the ogre or not. Do this again 4 more times and you should finish [66] Bladespire Kegger.

9. Go back to T'chali, turn in [66] Bladespire Kegger, get the follow up [67] Grimnok and Korgaah, I Am For You!

10. Ride south to Southmaul Tower (45,80). Clear the way to the top of the tower and kill Grimnok Battleborn.

Go up there and you should see Korgaah, 2 elite "sober" ogres, and one normal ogre. Pull the normal ogre first and kill it. Then use one of your Bloodmaul Brutebane Brew to lure Korgaah out solo. (This is why we gathered more than 10 of those earlier).

12. Ride back to T'chali, turn in [67] Grimnok and Korgaah, I Am For You!, get the follow up [66] A Curse Upon Both of Your Clans!

13. Ride southeast to Bloodmaul Outpost, clear the way to a building (any house will do). Get back to full HP/mana and use the Wicked Strong Fetish from your inventory in front of a building. A spirit will spawn, kill it and you'll get a quest update. Stay at the same building and do this again until you have Bloodmaul Outpost building cursed: 2/2.
However, if you summon evil spirits in the same house twice in a row too fast, you'll get an extra Cursed Spirit who will attack you, which can be a bit difficult to handle. So I suggest you wait for the current "haunting spirit" (that glowing orc face floating in front of the building) to vanish before you use another charge of the fetish. You can kill some ogres in the meantime, or simply go to another building, it's up to you.

Get the new flight path.

==Note== From now on, kill every Silkwing Larva on sight. If the larva begins to metamorphose, let them do it, that way you have a chance to get a cocoon + an Iridescent Wing from the Silkwing which spawns out of the larva, and these are very easy to kill.

1. Go south to Veil Vekh (76,75). Kill birdmen until one drops a Vekh'nir Crystal, then go to the arcane circle in the middle of the camp and right-click the crystal from your inventory.

3. Go to the southwestern corner of Vekhaar Stand (73,74). Kill birdmen on your way, try to avoid killing the ogres though. As soon as one of the birdmen drops an Infused Vekh'nir Crystal, look for Dertrok's Wand Case in your bags and open it, you'll receive 4 wands in your bags.

Find an ogre and use the first wand on him, he'll become your pet for 2 minutes.

4. Go to the cave at the end of the valley (72,74). Inside the cave, go straight ahead at the first fork and you should quickly find Vekh at the end of this tunnel. Kill him.

By now you should have a few Infused Vekh'nir Crystals, so use the other wands on ogres until you finish [66] Trial and Error.
You need 1 Infused Vekh'nir Crystal per wand, so clear the way out of the cave and kill extra birdmen if you need more crystals.

5. Once you've finished [66] Trial and Error, go back towards Mok'Nathal Village while killing Silkwing Larvaes until you finish [66] Silkwing Cocoons and [65] The Softest Wings.

Now kill as many Lesser Nether Drakes as you can, while being close to your totem, you should get a buff icon if you are close enough.

If you do it properly, the drakes should drop Nether Drake Spirits. You need 8 of those.
The totem only lasts 2 minutes, so you'll have to find another spot with a lot of drakes and drop another totem there. Rinse and repeat until you finish [67] Spirit Calling.

9. Find and kill Dreadwing, a named Netherdrake which can found at (65,78). She sometimes takes a walk towards the west, but always comes back to take a nap here.
Note: Dreadwing is immune to stuns and to shadow spells.

  • [67] Spirit Calling, get the follow up [67] Gather the Orbs

Keep moving throughout the camp while using your totem, until you finish [67] Gather the Orbs.

Warning: the ogres will attack your marmot if you get too close, so be careful.

7. Ride back to Thunderlord Stronghold, turn in [67] Crush the Bloodmaul Camp and [67] The Smallest Creatures, get the follow up [67] A Boaring Time for Grulloc.

8. Go back down in the ravine, this time go east until you see a big gronn called Grulloc (61,47). You should see Grulloc's Sack at his feet. Get as close as you can without aggroing Grulloc, then use Huffer's Whistle. The boar will distract Grulloc for about 30 seconds, in the meantime loot Grulloc's Sack and run away.

You can destroy Huffer's Whistle now.

9. Go to Baron Sablemane, turn in the quest get the follow up [67] It's a Trap!

10. Go southwest to Bladespire Hold, clear the way to a building (any house will do). Get back to full HP/mana and use the Wicked Strong Fetish from your inventory in front of a building. A spirit will spawn, kill it and you'll get a quest update. Stay at the same building and do this again until you have Bladespire Hold building cursed: 5/5.
However, if you summon evil spirits in the same house twice in a row too fast, you'll get an extra Cursed Spirit who will attack you, which can be a bit difficult to handle. So I suggest you wait for the current "haunting spirit" (that glowing orc face floating in front of the building) to vanish before you use another charge of the fetish. You can kill some ogres in the meantime, or simply go to another building, it's up to you.

East of Evergrove you should see a path going up the mountains, take it.

==Note== From now on, kill Felsworn Daggermaws, Felsworn Scalewings and Fel Corrupters on sight, until ou finish the quest [67] Culling the Wild.

When you're up on the plateau, go east/southeast to Forge Camp: Anger. Clear the way to the legion communicator (73,40).

You must not be on your mount and you must not be in any shapeshifted form before you put on the Gas Mask. Put on the gas mask and a question mark should pop above the Legion Communicator. Right-click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [68] Deceive thy Enemy.
Now kill 4 Doomforge Attendants and 4 Doomforge Engineer, go back to the Legion Communicator, re-equip the Gas Mask (if you unequipped it), turn in the quest and get the follow up [68] You're Fired!
You can re-equip your normal helm now. Kill 5 Anger Guards, they can mostly be found on the front area of Forge Camp: Fear and they always drop a Camp Anger Key. Once you got 5 keys, locate the 5 Legion Obelisks

Once you know where they are, you must activate all 5 as fast as you can. I suggest to start with the southernmost one. If you are fast enough, the 5 obelisks will activate a demon gate and Doomcryer will come through it. Kill her, she's elite but can be soloed by most classes, she can be kited, stunned, rooted, etc. Just make sure you fight her solo.
Once she's dead, get out of Forge Camp Anger.

6. Go southwest to Razaan's Landing. This time go to the middle of the camp at (66,44), where you should see a stargate. Kill a lot of Razaani agents in this area and Nexus-Prince Razaan will come through the stargate eventually. There's a trick to know approximately how much more you need to kill. Behind the gate is a tube with white smoke in it. When the tube is full, that means the prince is about to come.

This should make you ding level 68, if you've been doing the instances I recommended. If you're still level 67, it's not a problem, keep following the guide, but try to kill more things on the way or do an instance.

Level 68


2. Go back in the tunnel and go through it until find the exit. Then go north/northwest to Grishnath (42,23). Kill arrakoas until you receive a 2 minute buff called Understanding Ravenspeech. With that buff, you should be able to see where the prophecies are on your minimap. The prophecies look like this.

  • The 1st Prophecy is at (39, 17) on top of one of the treehouses.
  • The 2nd Propecy is at (42, 22) on top of one of the treehouses.

While gathering prophecies, you should find an Orb of the Grishna on one of the arrakoas. Right-click it to start the quest [68] The Truth Unorbed.

3. Go southwest and follow the road towards the cave at (32,31). Kill Wyrmcult Agents and enter the cave. Inside the cave always keep right, kill wyrmcult agents and use your Blackwhelp Net on the Wyrmcult Blackwhelps to trap them. You can also walk near the eggs on the floor to spawn more whelps.
Keep to the right and clear the way and you should eventually find Kolphis Darkscale.
!!Don't attack him or get too close to him!!, you must first disguise yourself. You should already have 5x Costume Scraps (if you don't, go kill more wyrmcult agents), right-click the costume scraps, an Overseer Costume should appear in your bags. Use it, go talk to Korphis Darkscale, go through is dialog quickly because you only have 3 minutes until your disguise wears off.
Now gather the last few Wyrmcult Blackwhelps you might still need (using the net breaks the disguise, so be careful).

4. Hearthstone back to Evergrove. Turn in all 4 quests, get the follow ups:

  • [68] Maxnar Must Die!
  • [68] Treebole Must Know


Sell junk and repair.

2. Go northeast to Grishnath, gather 5 Grishnath Orbs

3. Go southwest to the area shown on the map (37,29) and look for Dire Ravens. Kill them until one drops a Dire Pinfeather. Right-click your Grishnath Orbs and it will combine it with a Dire Pinfeather to create an Exorcism Feather. Use this Exorcism Feather on a Raven's Wood Leafbeards (found in the same area) and kill the Koi-Koi Spirit which spawns.
Repeat this step 5 times to complete [68] Exorcising the Trees.

4. Go back to Treebole, turn in [68] Exorcising the Trees.

5. Go west to Boulder'mok (31,24). Locate Gorgrom's Altar.

Clear all the ogres in a large radius around it and keep killing ogres until you got 3 Grisly Totems.
Then right-click Gorgrom's Altar. Gorgrom himself will show up and die to the trap you laid. When Gorgrom is dead, go next to his corpse and drop the 3 Grisly Totems you gathered earlier.
Keep killing ogres until you finish [68] Slaughter at Boulder'mok. Destroy any extra grisly totem you might have.

6. Go south to the wyrmcult cave. Enter the cave and keep going right, you can hug the left wall so that you don't have to fight Kolphis Darkscale. If you managed to gather another 5 costume scraps, use them and disguise yourself, this will save us much time. Go to the end of the cave and kill Maxnar the Ashmaw (34,36).

Hearthstone back to Evergrove. Turn in [68] Maxnar Must Die!


Sell junk and repair. Re-stock food/drink. Destroy any extra costume scraps you might have.

Fly to Thunderlord Stronghold.

Turn in:

  • [68] Gorgrom the Dragon-Eater, get the follow up [67] Prisoner of the Bladespire
  • [68] Slaughter at Boulder'mok

1. (Optional) You'll need a group for the next two steps. 3 people would be nice. So start to LFG [67] Prisoner of the Bladespire + [70] Showdown. In the meantime you can go grind on ogres or on demons at Forge Camp Anger if you want Aldor reputation. If you want cash, you can go grind on the fire elementals at Skald.

Anyway, once you have a group, go to area close to Gruul's Lair and kill the elite ogres there until one drops a Wyvern Cage Key. Be warned, the drop rate on the key is quite low, I'd estimate it at 10% chance to drop. So if you're unlucky, it can take a long time.

Once one member of your group has the key, you must find Leokk's Cage, which is located at (66,20). It's quite high up in the air so look above.

The person who looted the key must stand under the cage and right-click Spirit's Whistle from his inventory. This will free Leokk and complete the quest [67] Prisoner of the Bladespire.

2. (Optional) Go back to Thunderlord Stronghold, turn in [67] Prisoner of the Bladespire and get the follow up [70] Showdown. You also need a group for this, so hopefully the group you had for the previous quest didn't disband. You don't even need a healer for this step, because Rexxar will tank for you. However, you still need a decent amount of dps to ensure that you do more than 50% of the damage, or Rexxar will claim the kill and you won't finish the quest.

Once you have a group ready to go, go to (64,19) where you'll find the Altar of Goc, just a little west of where you found Leokk's Cage in the previous quest.

Before you start the script, tell your group the following:

Rexxar will come and tank Goc for you. So to make sure that HE tanks and not one of your group member, tell everyone to stand back at the start and to do nothing for the first 10 seconds of the fight so that Rexxar can build aggro. After, just kill Goc, be careful not to overdo it and pull aggro though, or you'll most likely go "splat!".

When everyone is ready, right-click Rexxar's Battle Horn. Once Goc is dead, go back to Thunderlord Stronghold, use hearthstone if it's up.

Turn in [70] Showdown.

2. In Death's Door, right-click the Druid Signal in your bags, an Evergrove Druid should fly down to you. Turn in [68] Death's Door, get the follow up [68] Harvesting the Fel Ammunition.

Start killing everything besides Void Terrors (those ugly demon dogs). Keep killing stuff until you got 5 Fel Cannonballs.
When done with that, use your Druid Signal again, turn in [68] Harvesting the Fel Ammunition, get the follow up [68] Fire At Will!

3. Clear the way to the southern fel cannon (65,68). Once you've located it, read the next paragraph before you take control of the cannon.

To destroy the warp-gate, you have to take control of a fel cannon. When you use your Naturalized Ammunition, you will take control of the cannon and a pet bar will appear (this also means hunters, frost mages and warlocks cannot use their pets).

The pet bar looks like this:

We will mostly use the ability #4 "Artillery on the warp gate".
As soon as you take control of the cannon, use it. It is on a 15 second cooldown and you must use it everytime it is ready. That's the easiest way to succeed.

Imps will come out of the warp-gate and suicide-bomb the cannon. Each time an imp manages to explode on the cannon, it will take out about 6-7% of the cannon's total health. So you can let about 15 imps reach the cannon, which is more than enough, since you should be able to kill most of them beore they reach it anyway.
The imps' explosion is mitigated by armor, so warriors in def stance, bears and paladins shouldn't have much troubles surviving them.
The imps have about 475HP. If you one-shot them, they don't explode. Basically it's simple, kill as many imps as you can, try to one-shot them, and keep firing the Artillery everytime it's up. Another tip, especially for melee classes, if you get low on health, you can back off and bandage/eat, the cannon can take a beating. The only real difficulty is when a dog spawns instead of an imp, dogs have a lot more HP than imps. Warlocks can banish the dog, but for other classes the best option would be to kill it fast and let the cannon take a beating from the imps.

Tips:

Mages: Scorch / Fireblast is enough to kill imps. Easy job.
Shamans: One earth shock is enough. You can also drop a stoneclaw totem near the gate, the imps will suicide on it. You can also use your earth elemental if the coolodwn is ready, of course Sticking out tongue
Rogues: If dagger specced, you can just stand infront of the cannon, wait for the imps to come and backstab them whenever you have enough energy.
If not dagger specced, try to oneshot them with sinister strike, if you get low health, move away, bandage up, get back in.
Warriors: Victory Rush!
Paladins: Put on some +dmg gear, shock, exorcism, consecration, easy job for paladins.
Druids: Balance druids, just moonfire away. Resto druids, you can heal the cannon with Rejuv and Lifebloom. Ferals, just go bear and take the explosions, swipe away. Back off and heal if needed.
Warlocks: Searing Pain
Hunters: Drop a frost trap in front of the gate at the start, then just bow shoot away
Priests: You can either mind flay/shadow word: death the imps, or you can just keep the cannon alive with Prayer of Mending, Renew and PowerWord:Shield

When you're ready, clear around the cannon, get full HP/mana and right-click your Naturalized Ammunition.

4. Go to the northern cannon (62,60) and do the same thing. When done, call your druid and turn in [68] Fire At Will!, get the follow up [68] The Hound-Master.

5. Clear to the demon portal northeast of the canon, and when only Baelmon the Hound-Master is left, get full HP/mana, target Baelmon the Hound Master and use the Evergrove Wand. Two treants will attack him, let them tank and help them kill Baelmon, just be careful not to pull aggro from them and it will be an easy fight.
When Baelmon is defeated, hearthstone back to Evergrove.

Turn in [68] The Hound-Master.

We're done with Blade's Edge Mountains!


Sell junk and repair. Mount up, follow the road east, and then north, all the way to Netherstorm.

1. In Netherstorm, while crossing the bridge, get the quest [68] Off To Area 52. (If the quest doesn't appear, check your quest log to see if you have [67] A Strange Vision or [67] Out of This World Produce!. If you do, abandon it and the quest should now be available)

2. Ride southeast to Area 52 (32,66). Turn in [68] Off To Area 52 and get all the quests. You should have 7 quests listed under Netherstorm in your quest log.


Go to the inn and make it your home location.
Get the new flight path.

3. Go southeast to (35,74). You should find plenty of Shaleskin Flayers in this area, kill them till you got 5 Shaleskin Shale. Then go back to Area 52, turn in and get the follow up [68] That Little Extra Kick.

4. Go southeast to the Arklon Ruins and clear the way to (41,72) where you should see a brazier.

Clear the mobs around it and then use your Conjuring Powder, which will summon Ekkorash the Inquisitor. Kill her and loot Archmage Vargoth's Staff.

Just a little further east in the ruins you should find Pentatharon (43,72). Kill him and loot Arklon Crystal Artifact.

5. Just east of where you fought Pentatharon you should find Nether Rays (45,72). There should be half a dozen of them here, kill them all, it doesn't matter if you don't complete [68] That Little Extra Kick. Don't wait on respawns.
Hearthstone back to Area 52. Turn in all the quests and get all the follow ups, also get the new quest [65] Pick Your Part.

==Note== Green is for Scryers / Orange is for Aldors

1. Scryers: Go west and find Captain Arathyn. He's on a small hill with 2 ballistas at (28,65). Kill him and loot the B'Naar Personnel Roster.

Aldors: Go west to Manaforge B'naar (27,65), kill 8 Sunfury Magisters and 8 Sunfury Bloodwarders.

Both: While near Manaforge B'naar, if you find an Arcane Annihilator, try to kill it and loot an Annihilator Servo from it. It is elite ranged classes can kite it to death. For other classes, it might be more difficult, try to get help and kill one. If you can't find help, no worries for now, we'll have more opportunities to kill one later.

2. Go southeast to The Heap (29,78). Kill Zaxxis agents until you have 10 Zaxxis Insignias and gather up 10 pieces of Ethereal Technology

3. (Optional) While in the area, you might see Netherock, a big elite rock giant. He roams goes back and forth along the southern edge of this island, in between The Heap and the Arklon Ruins. Most classes can solo him. He's immune to movement impairing effects but doesn't hit that hard. He can also be kited to Area 52 where the guards will help you. At 75%/50%/25% HP he spawns an add, ignore them and just burn Netherock down. Just make sure you don't attack him if there's any thunder elemental or rock elemental near him, because they will link.

4. Ride back to Area 52, turn in all quests and get all follows ups.

No map needed for the next circuit.

1. Scryers: Go to Manaforge B'naar (25,67). Kill Sunfury Magisters until one drops a Bloodgem Shard and also kill what you need for [68] High Value Targets. The warp-masters and warp-engineers can mostly be found inside the building. The geologists are mostly on the southeastern side of the manaforge (26,70).
Once you got a Bloodgem Shard, go near one of those big floating red crystals

Use the Bloodgem Shard, this should complete [68] Blood Gem Crystals.
Finish [68] High Value Targets too before you move on to the next paragraph.

Aldors: Go back to Manaforge B'naar, clear the way till you're inside the manaforge. Find the controle console in the center of the room, it is a big purple crystal, can't miss it. Right-click it and you should get a quest complete message for [68] Naaru Technology.
When done with that, get out of the Manaforge and go to the 4 pipelines around it and use your Warp-attuned Orb.
Here are the locations of the 4 pipelines:

  • Northern Pipeline (25,60)
  • Eestern Pipeline (28,71)
  • Southern Pipeline (20,71)
  • Western Pipeline (20,67)

Both:

2. (optional) Southeast of Manaforge B'Naar you should find a goblin at (26,77) with a quest [68] It's a Fel Reaver, But with Heart. Normally you can't solo it, but there's a trick. Here's how: go next to the Scrapped Fel Reaver and use the Fel Zapper, then go back quickly to the goblin. Wait there and do not attack the fel reaver or the zaxxis ambusher and after about 5-6 minutes they will despawn. Then just kill the Scrapped Fel Reaver and loot its heart. Simple enough? You can even kill the Zaxxis agents east of the goblin while waiting, since you need them for the next step, but don't go too far though. Another thing, you must not get out of combat once you've attacked the Fel Reaver, or it will reset the whole thing.
The only problem with this strategy is that if anyone else attacks the fel reaver during that time, you won't complete the quest, so this is not really viable during peak time. However, during peak times you might find people to group with and do it. In any case, if you don't feel like waiting 5 minutes, just leave that quest for now, you can come back and do it at level 70.

3. Just a little southeast of the goblin tent you should find Warp-Raider Nesaad (28,79). Kill him.

4. Hearthstone back to Area 52, turn in all quests, get all the follow ups.

1. Go north to the Ruins of Enkkat (31,57) where you should find two quest givers. Don't take the quest given by the robot yet, just take [68] Recharging the Batteries. Read this paragraph first. The quest given by the robot is an escort, and the cool thing is, you can pretty much complete the 2 following quests while doing the escort:

  • [69] Rebuilding the Staff by killing ghosts during the escort and looting their crystals.
  • [68] You're Hired! by looting Etherlithium Matrix Crystals which are scattered all across the ruins.

Just let the robot go infront and take the first hit, he's pretty tough and you can let him tank stuff while looting crystals.
Knowing that, get full HP/Mana and start the escort quest [68] Mark V is Alive!.

After completing the escort, turn it in.

2. Go north until you hit the edge (31,51). You should find Phase Hunters and Nether Rays there. You have to kill both, however, you must use your Battery Recharging Blaster on the Phase Hunters when they are below 30% HP before killing them.
Go west/southwest while staying close to the edge and killing phase hunters and nether rays, as shown on the map.
Keep doing this until you finish [68] Recharging the Batteries and [68] That Little Extra Kick.

3. You should be rather close to Manaforge B'naar after finishing the two quests above. So go further south/southeast and enter the Manaforge building.
Find Overseer Theredis, he is in the southeastern wing. Kill him and loot the B'naar Access Crystal.
Go to the B'naar Control Console, it's that big purple crystal in the middle of the building

Kill any nearby sunfury agent, get full HP/mana.
Right-click the crystal and choose "Begin Emergency Shutdown". Sunfury Technicians will come and try to abort the shutdown, attack them quickly to interrupt their channeling and after 2 minutes or so you should get a complete messsage.

4. Hearthstone back to Area 52. Turn in all quests and get all follow ups.
Use Archmage Vargoth's Staff, turn in [68] Curse of the Violet Tower, get the follow up [69] The Sigil of Krasus.


Sell junk and repair. Make as much space as you can in your bags, this will be a long circuit.

1. Go north to (33,59) where you'll find a long crack with Mana Wraiths around. Kill them until you got 7 Mana Wraith Essences.

2. Go northwest to Bot-Specialist Alley (31,57), turn in [68] Recharging the Batteries.

3. Go back to Area 52, turn in and get the follow up [68] Elemental Power Extraction.

Do this 5 times and you should complete [68] Elemental Power Extraction.

5. Go northeast to the Ruins of Arklon (40,73). Look for the following 4 items and right-click them:

  • Multi-Spectrum Terrain Analyzer (40,73)
  • Servo-Pneumatic Dredging Claw (41,72)
  • Hyper Rotational Dig-A-Matic (41,74)
  • Big Wagon Full of Explosives (42,72)

They are rather big and easy to see.

3. Go east/northeast until you find a town hall building at (60,87). Kill stuff in the area infront of it until you find Cohlien Frotweaver and Conjurer Luminrath. They both walk up and down the path leading to the town hall.
Loot their item and right-click them to start the following quests:

  • [69] Cohlien Frostweaver

4. Go further east/northeast until you see a smith-house (61,85). Kill Kirin'Var Apprentices there until one drops a Smithing Hammer.

and Tents

==Note== You can be lazy and burn the same ballista / tent 4 times, you just have to wait till it stops burning and you can use the torch again. However, you need to kill 10 Sunfury Archers in this area, so you might as well clear the place while looking for various ballistas and tents.

1. Northeast of Area 52 you should find Dr. Boom (35,60). Find Boom's Doom in your inventory and put it on one of your hotkeyed buttons.
You have to use those bombs to kill Dr.Boom while avoiding his bombs and his dynamties, but there's a trick to make it really easy.
You just have to run in (while dodging bombs) and climb on top of that barrel, as shown on the picture below:

You might die once while trying to get up there, but the graveyard is close, and you can easily climb on top of the barrel as a ghost and then resurrect on top of the barrel safely. You'll be 100% safe once you're on this barrel.
Each bomb you toss should take out about 20% of Dr.Boom's health, so you have to bomb him 5 or 6 times.
Ranged classes can also nuke Dr.Boom down, but it takes a lot more time and it's less fun Sticking out tongue

You must be very close (almost in melee range) to the warp chasers are they die, or the imp won't gather their blood. Keep doing this until you have 8 Warp Chaser Blood.

Go back to Cosmowrench, turn in the quest.

11. Hearthstone back to Area 52. Turn in all the quests, get the follow ups. Don't forget to turn in [68] Dr.Boom at the pit southeast of Area 52.

Congratulations on level 70!

If you're not level 70 by now, don't worry, I'll be adding more circuits from Netherstorm and Shadowmoon Valley as soon as possible.

I hope you enjoyed this guide, now I leave the rest up to you. I highly recommend finishing all the quests in Netherstorm and doing all those in Shadowmoon Valley. This should get you your 280% speed flying mount, or at least close to it.

NEW: I highly recommend following Krowa's Shadowmoon Valley Guide before going to Northrend. If you're interested in getting more gold and the Shadowmoon Valley quest achievement, you should definitely do it. The quality of this guide is very high.

See you in Northrend for the next chapter!

I hope you enjoyed this guide. If you want to return the favor, please try to contribute.

Can I join guide from any point?

My alts have all followed your fab guides James Laughing out loud , but this character was leveled before i knew of your guides. I hear that these guides are even more chain quest using, and therefore require prerequisite quest completions, even more so than your Azeroth guides. I'm level 67, halfway to 70, slap-bang inbetween the two levels Jawdropping! , so is there any way or where that I can jump in and catch up on the exp missed from chains? Puzzled

Please let me know,
thanks.
Eye

Luthaz.

Start at a new guide.

I recommend starting with a fresh guide in a zone you haven't been to yet. You might miss out on a few of the quest but usually its only one or two. If the addon guide was written using the prereqisite options, only the quest you can do will show up. I hope this helps.

Spelling

"2. Go norhteast until you hit the road again and follow it north until you reach Nesingwary Safari (71,40). Get the 3 mastery quests."

norhteast should be Northeast

misplaced hearth

I have used your guides for 4 toons, counting the one i am on now, and they are fantastic. However, close to the start of this guide, after visiting windyreed, nes's camp and on to throne of the ele's, you say to hearth, when garadar is only a 1 min. SWIM Jawdropping! to the south. Perhaps a hearth should be placed somewhere so it can be used more effectively? Puzzled just a suggestion, and keep up the GREAT work!

northrend guide

hey guys, im already lvl 71, and i wish to go to northrend, but i cant seems to find any guide here regards northrend? can u guys link to me please?
thanks lots Jawdropping!

They are linked right on the

They are linked right on the site's main page, but here it is again.

Typo

By the first second step, you made a typo in "Northeast".

This is what it has come to? Desperately trying to get to the next MB, crawling around looking for anything I can delete. All because my good HDD failed, and now Vistro.net's admin is based out of a crappy 30GB drive. And I can't even get this cr

another fix... "eating

another fix... "eating damnation" only requires 10 rather than 15 so where you say you shold be at least 9/15 you could just finish the task off.
Smiling

the quest: "a rare bean" has

the quest: "a rare bean" has been changed to just collecting 8 not 15 or whatever you stated Smiling
great guide though, its got me racing through the levels.

Just a side note...

First let me say Thank You. What an awesome service you have provided here. I have used your guide non-stop from level 21 and I am now 67 and just entering Nagrand. Which brings me to the "little side note". When I first zoned into Nagrand I noticed I was running low on ammo and decided to run to Garadar first. When I got there I chose to grab the quests you had listed but I found an extra one. Apparently if you go to Garadar before going to the Nestingway camp there is a quest to find the Nestingway camp given by the Tauren sitting around the campfire across from the Wanted poster named Ohlorn Farstrider. I don't know if you omitted it on purpose but I thought it was worth mentioning for those trying to get achievements. Thanks again Smiling

Good to know, the Nagrand

Good to know, the Nagrand achievement REALLY sucks. I finally managed to get it last week after doing all group quests including the Thrall quest chain, and I still had one quest left with no quests available! I was prepared to camp the Nessingwary area for that hunter who gets attacked, but luckily she had just been saved when I arrived. I got the quest and the achievement!

Moving on to Northrend

I've seen several people ask this in various parts of Jame's guides, so I thought I would share my experience for anyone wondering whether to move on to Northrend when they hit 70 or to stay and finish Outland.

I followed Jame's guides to build a toon from level 21 to 80. I hit level 70 long before finishing Blade's Edge and Netherstorm, but kept going in Outland and finished Netherstorm and then did Shadowmoon Valley. While you do not get as much experience for quests in Outland compared to Northrend, I hit level 75 before heading to Northrend and continuing with Jame's guides. Doing so, I was level 80 before finishing the Borean Tundra guide (meaning that every quest I completed in the rest of Northrend gave me a hefty sum of gold instead of experience).

So when Jame recommends finishing a section before moving on to the next one, do not dismiss it lightly. The amount of gold you can pull in from just quest turn ins later in Northrend makes saving for your flying training,epic flyers, gear upgrades, bigger bags, etc., a piece of cake.

I am doing the same thing

I am on level 70 and am about 1/2 way through Blades Edge Mountains. It is good to know this is going to work for me. I did pick op the standard flying mount and let me say that makes Outland even easier to level in. The other thing about staying in Outland is that at level 70 you are a big fish in a small pond. I find I rarely run accross Alliance player charecters that I can destroy with ease. The quests are much easier and still provide full XP.

I do have a question about one thing for anyone who cares to answer. I have been considering taking a break from leveling so I can try and get some T6 Onslaught Battlegear. I have a few questions:

- Can my level 70 DK use the Onslaught Battlegear? The DPS Config for a warrior looks great for my DK but the tokens they discuss seem class specific.
- Is there anything else tied to this (like reputation) or is it get a raid together and go kill the bosses and then yo uget the toekns to buy the armor.
- Is it worth taking a break from leveling to try and get this armor? I would think having a full set of T6 armor would make the journey to 80 a whole lot easier. But I am not certain if it is achievable (is this a pipe dream) and is it worth it because when I hit 80 I will be looking for new armor.

-I don't think the DK can

-I don't think the DK can use any tier gear below tier 7.

-No reputation is tied to those raids, you can go there no matter your rep, there are just some special rep items that require you to clear the raids multiple time to receive them, but the tier pieces are not part of that.

-While doing those old raids would be fun, I really don't think it would be worth it at all. Leveling from 70-80 is honestly really freaking easy, and as a DK even mnore so. The gear you get from questing alone will be plenty good enough. Yes, T6 gear could tide you over for a large portion of 70-80, but it's not necessary in any way. Of course, getting that gear would be fun, and if you can get a group of people together to do it, then go for it!

Thank you so much for this

Thank you so much for this testimonial! Might I quote you on this?

Sure

You are more than welcome to do so. Smiling

Ryuzaki's picture

Thanks Jame!

Hey Jame
I've been following your guide on my paladin from the beginning now at level 21! The guides have been great and made questing alot more fun than pure grinding!
I decided do leave Blades Edge out completly, as I hate the zone. I went to Netherstorm at 69 with a few bars untill 70. I've finally reached 70 and am now going to start on your Northrend guide, so thank you very much for writing them!

Regards,
Ryuzaki.

Question on 65-70 guide for you Jame

Okay well I was a little ahead on my DK but im on your 3rd round in netherstorm and just got 70. I was wondering when I finish your guide should I go to northrend or finish outlands...Really I want to get a ton of gold for this chars epic flyer and my main's but I dont want to get left behind in quests and have northrend slow and boring. Thanks

*Points to Jahwo's answer to the comment below this one*

That said, do what is most fun for you. It's a game after all, being slightly more efficient in money or gold making won't make up for you not having fun while playing!

A Newbie Question

I know this is going to be a stupid question but: I am currently 69 and halfway to 70. I have just started Nagrand and am up to the second set of Hemingway's quests. The quests I'm doing are giving around the 11,000-13,500xp mark.

My friend said I should move to Northrend at 70 or 71 because all the quests there give around 20,000xp and says I will level there much faster.

I'm a newbie to Outland and Northrend, so can anyone give this newb some advice? Whether I should continue in Outland or go straight to Northrend?

Thanks, Haytred

Jiyambi's picture

Keep in mind, while the

Keep in mind, while the quests in Outland may give less XP, you also can complete them much faster since you are a higher level than they are!

Plus, if you ever want to get the achievements for these areas, now is the time, while you still get XP from the quests.

However, if you get sick of Outland, then by all means move on!

Jame's advice always is to

Jame's advice always is to follow his outland guides until the end, even if you'll be level 73 when you get to northrend. This will make you ding 80 really early in nothrend and you'll earn tons of gold finishing the quests in the last zones. Also you will level quicker if you are some levels ahead of the northrend zones. In the end it's up to you, but advice is to stay in outland.

Gurok the Usurper

Something I ran across following the guide:

For the Gurok the Usurper quest [end of Nagrand section], I would recommend three additional details:

1) You require 7 War Maul Skulls to summon him. I only had one when I got there.
2) In reference to "fighting with the mountain behind you" this does not mean the high mountainous outcroppings as he can boot you right over the top of these.
3) If you do die...you have to have *another* 7 War Maul Skulls to start over again.

Hopefully helpful comments.

Thanks as usual for the wonderful guides!

What do I do next

Hey Jame, I've been lvl 70 for quite a while (Since the end of Nagrand to be exact) and I'm currently in Netherstorm, should I skip the rest of the guide and go to northrend or should i stay until i finish the guide?

Great guide as always, Jame. Eye

More circuits

According to the guide:

"If you're not level 70 by now, don't worry, I'll be adding more circuits from Netherstorm and Shadowmoon Valley as soon as possible."

I know Northrend is available now, but I'm continuing in Outlands to get as much xp as possible before moving on and was wondering if these said circuits would ever be added?

They will, it will just take

They will, it will just take some time.

Entering Netherstorm

Couldn't get Securing the Shaleskin Shale.. Just to let you know.

Love your guides. Thanks for all the hard work!

Missed turning in a quest

Hi Jame,

Dont know if this has been mentioned before. I missed turning in a quest in your guide. The guide says for questing in Blade Edge Mountains:
----
13. Get back on the road and go to Evergrove (63,40). Turn in [64] Ruuan Weald and [68] Damaged Mask, get the follow ups.

Gather all the quests in Evergrove.

Get the new flight path.

Fly to Thunderlord Stronghold.
----

What I missed in the guide is that you need to turn in the follow up of [68] Damaged Mask right away to get the quest [68] Felsworn Gas Mask. This followup which you need to turn in is [68] Mystery Mask and can be turned in at Wildlord Antelarion. First time I skipped it and had to fly back to Evergrove to turn it in and get the right quest...

Hope this helps Smiling

Correction

"6. Ride northwest to the Throne of the Elements, turn in:"
The two bullets underneath this are completely orange instead of just the quest names.

Thanks, fixing it Love

Thanks, fixing it Smiling

Love your avatar btw, Kenpachi as the KFC mascot? WTF ^^

i have some questions :p..

well the first one

"1. In Netherstorm, while crossing the bridge, get the quest [68] Off To Area 52. (If the quest doesn't appear, check your quest log to see if you have [67] A Strange Vision or [67] Out of This World Produce!. If you do, abandon it and the quest should now be available)"

1-i accidentally take the quest "a strange vision" and turn it in at area 52 Sad....... what can i do .. ? Jawdropping!

2- the second one is.. well since the level cap is 80 i can still make the outland and netherstorm quests and have the all the money they give ? i mean if i am lvl 70 they're going to give gold instahead of exp ? help pls =)..

Jame's picture

1. Ignore it, it's not a big

1. Ignore it, it's not a big deal. The follow ups are the same.

2. No, level 70 is no longer the cap, so you only get XP if you do those quests at level 70.

However, if you do those quests at 80, you will get no XP at all and no gold converted because those quests will be grey to you. That's why it's better to do them while they're still giving you xp, and then you'll ding level 80 much earlier in Northrend. The earlier you ding 80 in Northrend, the more quests you'll have left to do at level 80, and those will give you extra gold instead of exp thanks to being level capped.

Northrend questing

Hi Jame! Thanks so much for the guides but i have just ONE question if i go to northrend at 70 you say that ill get to 80 faster right? that makes sense, but if you go there at 68 are you going to get to 70 faster than if you kept questing in outlands? because My main is a Blood Elf DK level 67 and he is my highest toon and i have never flown a flying mount so i really wanna ding 70!

And also, do you think buying the DK flying mount will pay off in the long run or should i just get the regular mount?

Northrend

Hi Jame. first id like to thank you for your guides. have been following them with my DK all the way to lvl 69 where iam now.
i am 80% into lvl 69 and ive just come to the part in the guide when it says that i should go to Blade's edge mountains...well the guide says that i should be lvl 66 soon but when i hit lvl 70...should i go to northrend or stick to your guide...hope to here from you

Do all the quests?

I haven't gotten here yet, but should we go to Northrend right after we finish this guide, or should we finish Netherstorm and Shadowmoon, then go to Northrend?

Jame's picture

It's up to you, I would

It's up to you, I would recommend just going to Northrend once you finish this guide. But yes of course, you'll get some extra gold in the end if you finish all the Outland quests while they are still yellow or green to you.

However, you'll get to 80 faster if you go to Northrend as soon as you finish this guide.

Aldor vs. Scryer

Long time reader, first time poster...great guides. I really appreciate all the work put in.

If I may make a fast suggestion to people using these it would be to be sure to choose Aldor as your faction while going through the guides. 2 reasons for this:

1. The rep. rewards really do not matter much anymore since the release of WotLK.

2. The amount of exp. required to level now from 60 to 70 is quite a bit lower then it was when these guides were first crafted. All of the low level reputation quests are related to the Aldor faction. The Scryer quests do not come in to the picture until much later (especially since they removed the poison the cooking pot Scryer quest) and you'll likely have already dinged 70 long before you reach the Scryer quests in this guide.

Hope this tidbit helps!

Thanks, and a tip

I have been using your guide since starting my deathknight- now level 68, and am grinding out the Nesingwary quests. Just a tip for other dks who may be at this point: if you are leveling in the unholy spec (you followed the guide, right? Eye, you can clear these very rapidly. Aggro 2 of whatever you are grinding, attack as normal, but don't burn any runic power. After the fight, pop unholy blight, then mount up. Your UB will aggro the yellow mobs- I generally stack 4 at a time. Make sure you are using Death Strike liberally. When you finish, pop UB again, and repeat. I cleared thirty Windrocs in less than ten minutes with this method.

Thanks again for the very well written guide.

Very Important

ok the point whre it says you should have these quests: Your quest log should look like this at the moment:

[66] A Curse Upon Both of Your Clans!
[66] Creating the Pendant
[67] A Time for Negotiation...
[67] Culling the Wild
[67] From the Ashes
[67] Gather the Orbs
[67] Little Embers
[67] On Spirit's Wings (this quest right here is no longer in the new patch)
[68] Felsworn Gas Mask

i went back as far as i could tracking the quest line for this and i followed it exactly (i rechecked 3 times) and well its just not there anymore just letting you know so u can take it out!

Jame's picture

It should still be

It should still be there.

It's a very long quest chain, it starts with this quest:

[66] Thunderlord Clan Artifacts

Awesome guide - Just wanna say thank you!

Hi Jame,

I started using your Death Knight guide, followed by your two Outland guides and it's just awesome. I'm near at the end of your 65-70 guide, runing the last few Netherstorm quests with 70 and 85% to 71.

Awesome work and awesome guide! Everything goes really quick and easy to follow.

Keep up your work!

Regrads,

If you want to return the favor, please spread the word about my guides!

Blade'ss Edge Mountains

Hey.

I'd like to say thank you for your guides Smiling I hit 70 in Nagrand. For the sake of my OCD, I'm finishing all the zones in Outlands before going to Northrend.

After following your guide word for word in Blade's Edge Mountains, I found that I still have 15 quests left, before the achievement "On The Blade's Edge"

Could you please tell me where these other quests are?

Thank you.

Ogri'la. Go to lower city

Ogri'la.

Go to lower city in Shattrath, and find a red ogre. He'll give you a quest leading to the Ogri'la chain. It does have several group quests, though, and it might be quite difficult to find people to do those with, now that everyone's in Northrend.

Few ideas

Eya Jame,

Still using your guide. At 70 now, in Blade's edge, and going great.

I do have a few suggestions however.

Quote:
Mount up, ride north, off the mountain and then further north/northeast to Daggermaw Canyon. There you need to find two ogres having a chat at (58,33).

I suggest simply taking the flight path to Ruaan Weald, and riding down the mountain from there. You come out just besides the ogres, and (I think) it'll save you some time.

Quote:
Go down the ravine again and ride north/northeast until you find a marmot's den at (57,29).

Same as before, I think its faster flying to Ruaan Weald, and riding down the mountain there. If you leave the ramp, the marmot cave is just across from you.

However... I might pay to do this step:

Quote:
Go to the same ogre camp, kill 10 Bloodmaul Mauler and 5 Bloodmaul Warlock.

first, seeing you'll have a few of the ogres out of the way that could kill your Marmot.

Thats all, will post when I find out more.

Jame's picture

Thanks for your feedback.

Thanks for your feedback. I'm not sure if I'll change this part in the near future though, that would require re-doing some maps, and I don't have the time right now Sticking out tongue

Hi Jame, I finally got

Eye Hi Jame,

I finally got round to registering to give you a big hug and say thankyou to you and the other authors.

I've only been playing WOW for roughly 3 months now - I finally gave into the hype XD - and I leveled my first char to 70, 2 days ago.

I started using the guides on this brilliant site when my hunter char was level 10, and by the time she was level 30, I was a constent 3-4 levels above the guide which made for a very quick and easy progression.

All the guides are very easy to follow and understand, Koudos to the guys/girls who put the time and effort into creating them.

I'm currently part way through the lvl 65-70 and have come across an inconsistency in a quest chain :-

Quote:
6. First of all, go to Wildlord Antelarion and ask him for a new Gas Mask. Destroy the old one if you still have it, they have a one hour duration.

This quest chain starts when you find a [Damaged Mask] off of a defeated Fel Corrupter.
You then need to right click it to start it and it asks you to take it to O'Mally Zapnabber.

so until you do this first, Wildthorn dosent speak to you as such.

Keep up the good work guys it's really appreciated.

Escape XD

Jame's picture

Hey, really glad to hear the

Hey, really glad to hear the guide have helped you Eye

Now about the issue, I think you missed these lines:

Quote:
12. Go north of Razaan's Landing and kill Fel Corrupters until one drops a Damaged Mask. Right-click it to start the quest [68] Damaged Mask.

13. Get back on the road and go to Evergrove (63,40). Turn in [64] Ruuan Weald and [68] Damaged Mask, get the follow ups.

That's a few mousescrolls above the part where I have you speak to Wildlord Antelarion.

oops my bad, sorry hun,

Jawdropping! oops my bad, sorry hun, that'll teach me to speed read lol
