Kurich's Alliance Cataclysm Guide - Duskwood


Introduction


Welcome to my Duskwood Guide!

Since experience bonuses can vary greatly I'm just going to list the circuits without level assumptions. If I tell you to train when you have no skills to learn please disregard.

If my directions seem vague please consult your in-game map. Between it showing you where the objectives are and the sparkly lootables I don't think you'll have any trouble.

I like to train skills in Goldshire, because the trainers are much closer to the flightpath. If you like to check out the Auction House or just like running around through Stormwind please feel free to do so.

Please post and feedback, errors, or suggestions as comments.

If you're coming from my Redridge Mountains Guide you should be have just crossed the border South ofThree Corners and have one quest completed in your log:

  • Hero's Call: Duskwood!

On we go!

This concludes my Duskwood Leveling Guide


You should have discovered the whole zone except for Twilight Grove, and done a whole lotto quests. I've totally lost count.
My Paladin finished this zone at lvl 26. Next time I write a guide I'm going to use a Hunter, I've about had it with this Paladin.
I will be certain to edit this part out before I publish the guide for realz.

Head down to the Rebel Camp in Northern Stranglethorn, turn in Rebels Without a Clue and follow somebody else's guide, I'm done!

Comments

Level inaccuracy

I just arrived in Darkshire and I already run into some problems.

I turned in Hero's Call: Duskwood! and got Wolves at Our Heels however if this is supposed to be a 20-25lvl guide I assume I'm supposed to be on level 20.

If I am on level 20, then how am i supposed so start The Legend of Stalvan which requires me to be level 21 and Worgen in the Woods which requires me to be level 23? Should i skip these points, or just go into the woods and kill wolfs untill I reach level 23?

I used to use the printed guides, but the addon guides get more tweaking and TLC.

I can write this for the addon if needed.

I can write this for the addon if needed. I am about to play it with two toons anyways. I will start it unless I heat otherwise.

I will be adding maps & pictures!

And finish the formatting on the last section.

I'm focusing right now on converting my guides to addon format, which is how I think most people will be using them anyway.

Please feel free to playtest the circuits I've got though. There's a whole lot less running back and forth across the zone, and I believe the path I've chosen is pretty darn efficient.
