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.


Color Code:

  • Quests
  • Items
  • Locations
  • Quest objectives to kill
  • NPCs
  • Locs

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.

4. 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 (it happens Sticking out tongue).

5. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, fly north to Galakrond's Rest (56,35). Go down in the pit and use Ability #1 and #2 to kill Wastes Scavengers (you can actually you both at the same time). 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 and a 10 second Death Coil, 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.

(circuit img xx)

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

Dismount, get [73] Pest Control.

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 Snowbolds 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 Wrath, then kill it.

==Note== They are immune to frost. So frost mages, use Icy Veins and spam Arcane Blast.

3. Summon your drake. Fly south to another Snowbold / 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.

4. 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.

Chase the fleeing snowbolds into the canyon and you'll run into a magnataur called Icefist.

Kill him and loot the Emblazoned Battle Horn.

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

5. 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 10K HP and doesn't hit too hard, 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.

5. 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.

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, get the follow up [74] Wanton Warlord 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.

(img group quest)

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, summomn 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.
Please note that this quest has no follow up, so it doesn't matter if you do it now or later.

(circuit img xx)

1. Go south back to the Dragon Wastes, summon your drake.

Fly southwest to a digsite just west of Galakron's Rest (52,31).

Click the Leave Vehicle Button

Kill everything in the camp and look for composite ore.

2. Once you've looted all the composite ore from this spot, go northeast to the next digsite (57,28). Kill everything and loot all the ore there.

You should normally be done with [74] Stocking Up and [74] Nozzlerust Defense.

If not, there's another digsite just southeast of this one.

1. Go to the area east of Nozzlerust post and go to the dragon skull at (57,24).

Look for a Splintered Bone Chunk around this skull. They look like this:

Right-click them and loot them.

Also, while in this area, look for a Hulking Jormungar. Bring it down to 80% HP and a message will appear:

Right-click the Potent Explosive Charges.

This will blow up the Hulking Jormungar and a lot of meat will fly all around its corpse. Loot 6 Seared Jormungar Meat.

2. Go to the big dragon skeletons southeast of here (60,27). Loot all the bone chunks you can find around it.

3. Go to the next dragon skeleton further east (63,28). Loot all the bone chunks you can find around it.

Once you're done, summon your drake and fly back to Nozzlerust Post, turn in:

  • [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.

Right-click it to get a Sample of Rock Flesh.

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.

No map needed for this circuit.

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] Really Big Worm
  • [74] Worm Wrangler

1. Follow the trail southwest until you're back in the Dragon Wastes. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher.

Turn in [74] The Obsidian Dragonshrine, get:

  • [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 Decaying. 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 towards the bottom 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:

  • [74] Culling the Damned
  • [74] Defiling the Defilers, get [75] Neltharion's Flame

Right-click Neltharion's Flame.

Kill Rothin the Decayed.

Go back to Serinar, turn in [75] Neltharion's Flame, get [74] Tales of Destruction.

You should be level 75 by now.

Turn in [74] The Call of The Crusade, get [74] The Cleansing of Jintha'kalar.

4. Find Overseer Deathgaze (90,19) at the very eastern tip of this camp.

Target him and right-click the Seeds of Nature Wrath.

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!

(circuit img xx)

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.

Ask Torastrasza to fly you down to the middle floor.

Turn in [74] Report to Lord Afrasastrasz, get [74] Defending Wyrmrest Temple.

Go on the balcony and talk to a Wyrmrest Defender, click on the text and you'll ride it.

  • Ability #1: Direct damage, use everytime it's up.
  • 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 Young, turn in [74] Return To Angrathar.

Mount up, ride to the Wrathgate (38,19). If you want to watch the cinematic again, you can talk to Alexstrasza and click on the text.

Talk to Thrall, tell him you're ready.

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.

Comments

updates

 

Two small things - [74] Darkness Stirs and the followup quests, including The Battle For the Undercity - have been removed from the game.

 

And the Rapid Defense achievement is now awarded if you complete the quest under 3 minutes, rather then the previous 2.

 

Cheers

add/hide comment function

as much as i enjoy using your great guides to level my toons. i just noticed that the comments are taking up at least 10% of the page. Is there any way to hide them?

tiny error

Hey first of all: Thanks for all your hard work, and please keep it up, as I absolutely love your guides and have been using them for many months now. Finally I found a tiny error, and here it is: You tell me to get the same quest twice when you say:

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] From the Depths of Azjol-Nerub

The Kor'kron Vanguard!

Heey . First I'd like to say , your guides have made me level much faster , and I thank you for that . You see , I leveled a little faster than some of your past guides , so I skipped to the Dragonblight guide so that I wasnt doing low level quests . Now , I am at the part where I pick up The Kor'kron Vanguard! but it doesnt allow me to get the quest . I dont even get the exclamation mark . Can you help me out ?

Jame's picture

Definitely do not skip.

Definitely do not skip. Green quests are totally fine, they give as much XP as yellow ones at this point and are easier to do. Eye

[72] The Perfect Dissemblance

Probably mentioned before but: as a druid don´t be shapeshifted as that will not make you steal the image.

-= If you like ganking you seriously lack a real life =-

Wanted: Quests

I soloed all 3 wanted quests as a 74 warlock

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

I put my talents in demonology and get a felguard which tanked for me. I also am a grand master in first aid, so I could heal myself quickly when I got knocked back Magister Keldonus. Each took several minutes, but they were doable.

suggestion

for the quest [74] Messy Business...when you get it, just tank a worm, when it spits you, scrape it off, then beat on it till its about 10-15% health, let it spit you again, then kill it. turn messy business in, and get the 2 follow ups, and head into the cave...and do Really Big Worm if youre able to/get a group for it.

<33 love your guides, thanks a ton ^_^

Go to Overlord Agmar and get The Kor'Kron Vanguard!

I went to him, and he did't have a quest for me. How come? Now I'm totally confused. I'll just continue with what I do have until I hear back from you.

I found the missing link to get this quest

I strayed away from the guide and did the quest "Blightbeast be Damned!" I don't know whether or not I was supposed to do this first according to this guide. Maybe I missed it... anyway, it's needed in order to get the quest..."The Kor'Kron Vanguard".

My mystery has been solved Smiling

Pdiamond's picture

Yay 80!

Hey Jame thanks for the awesome guides. I dinged 80 about 3/4 the way into your Dragonblight guide and it's all thanks to you. It's my first level 80 and so far I'm loving it Sticking out tongue . Anyway I'm probably going to finish up your Dragonblight guide soon once I feel like it and then head to Grizzly Hills. I'm curious how much gold I would make from doing your Grizzly Hills guide as a level 80. I hope I would at least get 1-2k gold, do you have any idea how much I would probably make from doing it? Smiling

Hmmm, I would think around 1k. Please let us know how much you get from it!

HELP!!! I can't get back to Dalaran..I messed up!

I finished the quest where the NPC also gives you the opportunity to transport to Dalaran. This guide did NOT say to take it as yet...but I did Sad I was dying to see Dalaran Sad

I couldn't find an Inn once there, in order to get back. Once I used my hearth to go home... I was out of Dalaran and back where I started. I checked the same NPC to see if I could transport back again, and I cannot!

Now when it's time to return...and the guide tells me to use the NPC to transport there...and I already have done that quest, so now I can't use him again...what can I do to get back?! Sad

You can: A) get a mage to

You can:

A) get a mage to port you (easy solution)

B) Run to Dalaran and port up there from the little shield down below it. I'm not going to describe exactly how to get there here, but basically go north from Dragonblight into the Crystalsong Forest. The place to teleport up is in the western part of Crystalsong.

Hope this helps, I highly recommend just getting a mage to port you. You can find one by asking in trade in a major city, most easily, or by asking a guild-mate or friend. Usually you want to tip mages about 5 gold for their trouble.

Thank you for your help getting me to Dalaran :-)

I didn't need to use it yet. I'm almost to the quest where I'll need to get back to Dalaran. You helped a lot...and thank you Smiling

Soloable 3-man quests

With the addition of the "Glyph of Mending" for Hunters, a BM Hunter should easily be able to solo the 3-man quests, assuming he keeps Mend Pet up as needed and has the time to sit there and Auto/Arcane/Steady Shot.

[74] Shaved Ice

Hey Jame, great work with this guide, it's helped me alot with my paladin, I appreciate the time and effort you put into these guides, thanks alot!

I'd just like to add, with the quest " [74] Shaved Ice " the Ice Shard Clusters didn't drop for me once after looting the mob, but when I mine'd the corpse, it was a 100% drop from that. Not sure if it's just coincidence, but I thought mabye you'd like to add that in, incase some other miners don't mine their corpses! Sticking out tongue

Regards,
Ryuzaki.

When will we have the rest of the guides to 80?

Jame I am following your guides with my rogue too and I just finished the Grizzly hills guide and I am 78 + 5 bars full and I was wandering if you have stopped making guides. I downloaded your addon but the guides for sholazar,storm peaks,zul'drak and Ice crown are missing Sad My future plan is to make more players 80, though without your guides and while using Quest helper it will be a looooooong,boring trip. I even hate Zul'Drak:p I try every day to get ya online in nordrasill bu no luck. Have you stopped playing or something?

Jiyambi's picture

I think Jame has been pretty

I think Jame has been pretty busy with RL stuff lately. He still plans to write those guides eventually, but he's got lots of other stuff he's working on still. The best way to get the latest news is to follow his blog.

Hope that helps!

Zul drak over Grizzly Hills

hey my freinds told me to skip grizzly and go to zuldrak then do icecrown i need your advance james thanks! and o ya i used your guides with all my alts i worship you.

(I'm not Jame but I can give

(I'm not Jame but I can give my advice)

  1. First, it's Jame not James Eye
  2. Second, please make an effort with your spelling/grammar when you post.
  3. I would highly suggest you not skip any zones. If you do them in order, you'll ding 80 with more high level quests available, and those quests will get you a TON of gold. Plus, Jame doesn't have his Zul'Drak guide written yet, so you won't be able to use it. Finally, if you are at all interested in achievements, its better to do that region when it gives you experience.

Hope that helps!

Thanks

Ok so i should do zul drak after dragonblight then icecrown? then i might have my epic flyer Smiling

Nope you aught to follow

Nope you aught to follow Jame's order:

  1. Dragonblight
  2. Grizzly Hills
  3. Zul'Drak
  4. Sholazar Basin
  5. Storm Peaks
  6. Icecrown

This will give you the most bang for your buck.

Ok thanks

ummm where does jame give this information?

Jiyambi's picture

Well, his existing guides go

Well, his existing guides go from Dragonblight to Grizzly Hills, which is the main part of what you were asking.

The rest of the list comes from his Release Schedule - that's the order he plans to write his guides in when the rest of them come out. It's also the natural progression in terms of level of quests and mobs.

Level 74?

Hi, still progressing through as can be seen from earlier comments on earlier pages...

Borean Tundra guide lists ding points for lvl72 and 73... this page has a point for 75 but not for 74? Where should we ding 74? (I'm already 74.75 on starting this page, but it's nice to see how I compare Sticking out tongue)

Fresh Remounts

Hey, I dunno if someone has already posted this, b/c I didn't read through all of them. My apologizies if this is redundant. But, I was on my way out of New Hearthglen for the first time, and I killed a knight and mounted the horse as your guide mentions (for the Fresh Remounts quest. Your guide mentions to not worry about delivering the other two mounts, as it will be done in later circuits. I stumbled upon a more efficient way to do this quest quite by accident. There are three knights all near each other about as far up the path towards Venomspite as the mobs go. I took a mount, but aggro'd the other two; they followed me back to the turn in spot, and at first I was pissed the guards wouldn't kill them for me, until I realized that all three of my mounts had been brought back to the quest turn-in at the same time. Wish I had done it on purpose.

Minor typo

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but in the final map in the chapter, step two reads: Draong Wastes, which should be Dragon Wastes.

Love the guides though, makes levelling much more interesting, and I probably would have quit the game out of boredom with out them. Thanks Laughing out loud

==> Turn in [72] Victory

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

The above quest is repeated again in the list of quests to take.

Aha!

Figured out why I did not have the Need to Know quest. I had not finished the quest with the Siegesmith Bomb, Stealing from the Siegesmiths. That was also the precursor for the A Means to an End quest, which quite likely why they are all in that order in your guide. lol Thanks, again, Cragger.

sorry. Previous comment was about Dragonblight.

In my previous comment, I referred to "Grizzly Hills", when I meant to refer to "DragonBlight". Sorry about that.

(I noted a bit where I got confused due to the picture not matching the words on the comment:
1. Mount up, follow the dots to Kor'kron Vanguard (44,20).)

Thanks, again,

Cragger (also Cragdog, occasionally)

A confusing bit, I think.

I love your guide. As far as I am concerned, if one is going to be following a guide, this is the only one worth following. I am one of the laziest people in the world. And this is it for me. lol.

Ok. I found a bit in the Grizzly Hills guide that was confusing to me. Maybe to other people, too. At the following line:

"1. Mount up, follow the dots to Kor'kron Vanguard (44,20)."

The toon at that point is at Agmar's Hammer, but the picture shots the dots come coming from Wyrmrest Temple. So, now my toon is confused. Not me, of course, as I am to lazy to engage brain, yet, today. lol. So, if this is obvious to everyone else, this is my excuse. Not really a problem, because I can do math. Sorta. lol.

Thanks again for a great guide!!!!

Take care,

[72] Black Blood of Yogg-Saron

Jame, looks like the new patch made a change to this quest. You no longer have to click the Ironbender's Mining Pick in order to mine the ore. I am a non-miner and I was able to simply right click the node and VOILA! I was mining.

Awesome Guide and I'm lovin the add-on so far! (was a booger to install, but I think that was more because of the way my Vista machine handles zip file extraction)

Thanks

Moonrest Garden Plans

Gday mate, firstly let me just say, i flew through the levels with 2 chars previous to this one, just had to wait for ur guides to catch up Smiling They are FANTASTIC.

The problem I have is the 'Dead Mage Hunters' arent really clickable. I mean I can click on them and a target bar appears but i dont get anything from them at all. I right click ALL of them in the area and as yet i have received NOTHING of any of them, and yes I am dismounted. I gather you need the plans to be able to get the items off the wind trader and the other dragon guy, for the strange device, cause I killed them just to be sure and got nothing from their remains.

Has this quest ben removed or am I missing something integral to that quest?

Thanks heaps

Jame's picture

1. Are you targeting the

1. Are you targeting the actual "Dead Mage Hunters"? The ones which are already dead when you arrive on the spot? (not the ones you kill yourself).

2. Did you pick up the quest Rifle the Bodies?

3. Were you in a raid group maybe?

If it's none of the above, then the quest is bugged, or you are bugged (try re-launching the game, disabling some addons, etc)

Great Guide

First of all, this is a great guide. I am leveling extremely fast. Second, I just wanted to recommend an addon that could be very useful to everyone using this guide. It is called Cartographer. Besides the other stuff it does, such as give you coords, it also has the maps already discovered for you, so you can see where everything is. I think this could be useful, considering your guide has a lot of pictures of the map.

Jame's picture

True. But you could also try

True. But you could also try the addon version of the guide, and then you won't even need any map / coordinate addon anymore. Eye

Hmm

That is cool. I did not realize there was an addon. I'll check it out. Thanks

[74] Audience With The Dragon Queen

When you have to turn in [74] Audience With The Dragon Queen, [74] Galakrond and the Scourge, you placed it like this:

[74] Audience With The Dragon Queen, [74] Galakrond and the Scourge

It has to be

Turn in [74] Audience With The Dragon Queen, get the follow-up [74] Galakrond and the Scourge

I guess. Eye

Fixing it, thanks!

Fixing it, thanks!

Awesome

Another awesome guide, thanks again James.

I started using your guides when my DK was born with the Death Knight guide. After that one, I used your horde leveling guides. I did barely any instances and just a couple of the group quests. Non at the less I am now lvl 78 with 40% into the level after finish this guide.

So I guess I will be level 80 after your next guide. Keep the good work going.

Glad you liked it, and

Glad you liked it, and thanks for the feedback Eye

Please keep on using my guides and if you can, try to contribute.

THANK YOU

Hi Jame,

I've never thanked you before for your great guides, so this post is just a little THANKS.

The High Executer needs you

In the addon for this guide, the wow pro one, the waypoint is messed up. It reads a distance of 76million and a bit!

About the Wyrmrest Vanquisher Mount

The random dismounting may be to broken zoning borders, but I've noticed there is a hidden 15 minute cooldown that starts when you summon it, when you mount the buff disappears. This may be another reason for random dismounts.

Grand Necrolord Antiok as an Undead.

First of all, I'd like to say that the guide is going great for me, the 6 steps circuits are wonderful when used with DGPS, as I enter 5 coords of 5 steps while the sixth usually is a town/turn in spot.

I'd like to add a thing for Grand Necrolord Antiok fight. You say to equip the Pvp trinket to remove the Fear effect, but you should add that undead players can simply use "will of the frosaken" to remove that effect Smiling And if I'm right, orcs and trolls have a racial passive that reduces the duration of movement imparting effects by 15%, so for those races is a 8,5 sec. fear instead of 10. It is still too much and it NEEDS to be removed Eye

Onward with the guide, I've just completed the magnataur killings and I'm already 76 with about 120% rested Laughing out loud

Something seems to be wrong there, because the dots go from Wyrmrest Temple to Kor'kron Vanguard but the step before we've been in Agmar's Hammer
