Manovan's Undead Leveling Guide (1-13)

This is a guide for fast leveling through Tirisfal Glades as an Undead character. If you’re another race, I recommend that you choose another guide. This guide will take into consideration classes (class quests and talent suggestions) and professions (and alternative circuits for gatherers). This guide will optimize your leveling for your class and profession of choice. The system used is emulating Jame’s because his guides are very detailed and comfortable to play after.

Why you should use this guide:


These notes are important so that you won’t get lost in the guide. If you follow the instructions accordingly, there should be no questions about what you’re supposed to do next.

Recommended AddOns

Using AddOns are optional but there are some I recommend to make your leveling process easier. I will also mention the AddOns I use for personal satisfaction in case you wonder about something you might see in a screenshot:

Color Code

Class specific information:

The color codes might look confusing at first glance but you’ll get used to it in no time.

The Guide!

Level 1

A new Forsaken has risen in the tomb of Deathknell. I suggest you take your time to fix your interface the way you want it and give your skills the proper key bindings. Make sure everything is set and then move out to grab your first quest.

Outside the tomb you should see Undertaker Mordo. Grab his quest [1] Rude Awakening.

Further north you should see a chapel at your left hand side.

Turn in [1] Rude Awakening at Shadow Priest Sarvis and grab his quest: [2] The Mindless Ones.

Now start killing Mindless Zombies and Wretched Zombies just outside the chapel until you've killed 8 of each.

You should be about halfway to level 3 by now.

Level 2

Go back to Shadow Priest Sarvis and turn in [2] The Mindless Ones.

A few more quests will now be available in the chapel. Take them all:

On the opposite side of the chapel are two houses. Take a minute to sell junk and repair.

Warlock: Grab the quest [3] Piercing the Veil from Venya Marthand in the chapel.

1: Go west until you reach the area colored on the map (30.60). Kill:

You should definitely be level 3 by now.

Level 3

2: When you're done or if you run out of mobs to kill, go east to (33.60) and start killing Rattlecage Skeletons until you complete [3] Rattling the Rattlecages.

Warlock: Make sure you get all 3 Rattlecage Skulls for the quest [3] Piercing the Veil.

If you haven't completed [2] The Damned yet, go back west into the colored area and kill Young Scavengers and Duskbats until you do.

Make sure you are at least 420 EXP (Warlock: 590 EXP) from level 4 before you go back to the chapel. If not, then keep killing mobs until you are.

3: Go back to the chapel and turn in:

Level 4

Grab the quests:

Sell junk. Repair. Visit your class trainer.

4: Go to the ruined houses east of the chapel. Look for crates like this:

Find 6 of those.

5: Go north to (36.62) where you should find Samuel Fipps. Kill him and loot Samuel's Remains.

6: Go west towards the cave at (27.59) while killing 10 Young Night Web Spiders.

Inside the cave you'll find Night Web Spiders. Kill 8 of those.

Keep killing spiders until you're at least 1130 EXP from level 5.

Hearthstone back to Deathknell.

Run north to the graveyard outside the chapel and click the sparkling pile of dirt next to a tombstone.

Turn in:

This should make you ding level 5.

Level 5

Take the follow up: [4] The Scarlet Crusade.

1: Run east to (36.67) and kill Scarlet Converts and Scarlet Initiates until you have 12 Scarlet Armbands.

2: When you're done, go back to Executor Arren and turn in [4] The Scarlet Crusade. Get the follow up: [5] The Red Messenger.

3: Go back to where you killed the Scarlet Crusaders and look for Meven Korgal (36.68).

NOTE: Attack him from the hill behind the tent if you want to avoid the other mobs.

Kill him and loot the Scarlet Crusade Documents.

Go back to Executor Arren and turn in the quest. Get the follow up: [5] Vital Intelligence.

Priest: Grab the quest [4] In Favor of Darkness from Dark Cleric Duesten.

Now it's time to leave Deathknell.

4: Follow the road north-east to (38.56) and grab Calvin Montague's quest [5] A Rogue's Deal.

1: Further east as the road forks you will find Deathguard Simmer (40.54). Grab his quest: [7] Fields of Grief.

2: Follow the road north-west to Solliden Farmstead (37.50).

NOTE: This can get tough but as long as you avoid groups and pull single mobs you will be okay. Watch out for Farmer Solliden who's a rare level 8 mob.

Gather 10 Tirisfal Pumpkins in the fields while killing Tirisfal Farmers and Tirisfal Farmhands until you hit level 6.

These mobs drop Linen Cloth which is used for First Aid and Tailoring. If you plan on becoming a Tailor, I suggest you take an additional circle around the farm to get some extra cloth.

Level 6

Follow the road east to Brill.

Along the way you should encounter a patrolling abomination named Gordo. Take his quest: [5] Gordo's Task.

1: Check the woods at the sides of the road for Gloom Weed.

NOTE: A good spot for Gloom Weed is under the bridge (52.54) leading to Brill (but beware of Rotting Deads).

You will have another chance later to get the remaining Gloom Weed. Keep following the road until you reach Brill.

Don't forget to visit the Tailoring Trainer in the house at Cold Hearth Manor (52.55) if you want to become a Tailor.

When you enter Brill you will pass by Deathguard Dillinger (58.51) outside the cemetary. Take his quest: [6] A Putrid Task.

Enter the first house to the right and turn in [7] Fields of Grief at Apothecary Johaan. Take the follow up [7] Fields of Grief and [6] A New Plague.

Make Brill your home.

Go to the basement and complete [7] Fields of Grief.

Priest: Turn in [4] In Favor of Darkness at Dark Cleric Beryl at the top floor of the inn. Get the follow up: [4] Garments of Darkness.

Take your time to sell junk, repair and visit your class trainer. You should also buy some bags if you can afford it. If you have higher level characters on the same realm, now is a good time to log in on them and send some bags over.

The Enchanting Trainer is at the top floor of the inn. The Skinning and Leatherworking Trainers are south-east of Brill at the road. If you want any of those professions, quickly run to (65.60) and then return to town. If you want to be a miner or a cook and can't wait a while longer, take this time to run south to Undercity for the Mining Trainer and the Cooking Trainer.

Priest: Go north to (59.46). Heal and fortify Deathguard Kel.

1: Go south-west to Cold Hearth Manor (50.55) while killing Ravaged Corpses and Rotting Deads for Putrid Claws (7).

3: Follow the road west to Calvin Montague (38.56). Take the quest [5] A Rogue's Deal.

Talk to him again and fight him. Keep in mind that fighting Calvin Montague will trigger you for PVP and make you vulnerable to Alliance players. Defeat him and turn in the quest.

You should be level 7 by now.

Level 7

4: Go north-west to Solliden Farmhand (33.44) and kill 10 Scarlet Warriors.

If you're a Tailor and wants some extra Linen Cloth, this is a good time to detour with a circle or two around the farm before you continue. If you're a Herbalist, follow the herb path on the map back to Brill and pick up herbs on the way. If you're a Miner, go east back to Brill along the mine path. Or if you don't want to:

Hearthstone back to Brill.

Turn in:


Sell junk. Repair. Restock water and food.

1: Go south until you reach the Scarlet Crusade camp at (50.65).

NOTE: Kill every Duskbat on the way. You can stop when you've looted 5 Duskbat Pelts.

NOTE: Maggot Eye is level 10. Easiest way to kill him is to pull the mobs outside the house one at the time. If you're a caster: clear the field around the fence and pull him at max range. If you're melee: fight him inside the house. It shouldn't be too difficult at level 8.

2: Go north to the coast at (61.27) and kill Murlocs until you have 5 Vile Fin Scales.

Go south and make sure you complete [6] Doom Weed and [8] Graverobbers on the way.

This is a good time to pick up your profession. If you didn't get Mining before (and you want to be a Miner), do it now. Pick up Cooking even if you don't want to skill it up. It unlocks cooking quests which are used in Jame's guides. Ask a guard for directions to the Inscription, Engineering or Blacksmithing professions.

Since this is the first time we're in a city, take your time to visit the AH, train weapon skills, take the flightpath and put stuff you don't need in the bank.

Clear around the tower and then kill Captain Vachon. Should you fail, continue with the next step of the guide and come back after you've hit level 11.

You should complete [7] Proof of Demise while you're here.
