Credits

I wanted to say thank you to Jame for his wonderful guides (mimicked this one after his). Also, a big fat thanks to my hubby for all his help with the maps in this guide. Couldn't have done it without you.



Guide

Before we start, I highly recommend that you get your Flying Mount. It will save you time on getting places. If you followed Jame's Horde Leveling Guide - Chapter VI (65-70), you should be at least level 70 by now.


==Note== I will be using the following color code for Aldors and Scryers.

In Lower City of Shattrath pick up Chief Apothecary Hildagard from Fantei (64,70) and Learning to Fly from Nutral (63,41).

After arriving in Shadowmoon Valley, head east to Shadowmoon Village. Turn in Apprentice's Request to Dama Wildmane, Chief Apothecary Hildagard, and Learning to Fly.


Get the new flight path.


Go to the inn, make it your home location.

Outside the Inn pick up What Strange Creatures..., and A Haunted History. Also get:

  • A Grunt's Work...
  • The Path of Conquest
  • The Hand of Gul'dan
  • The Sketh'lon Wreckage
Do not get the quest from the poster.

==Note== In Shadowmoon Valley, kill any Felfire Boars, Vilewing Chimaera, and Scorchshell Pincer you see. You can stop once you get enough to finish A Grunt's Work....

1. Right outside the main gate get Besieged! from Blood Guard Gulmok.

Kill as many Infernal Attackers as you run into while doing other quests. You have to steal aggro from the Shadowmoon Scouts to get the credit for the kill.

2. Go South towards Magma Fields.

Kill Felfire Diemetradons while collecting Ever-Burning Ash all around the magma lake. Do a full circle around the lake. Kill any Felfire Boars you run into (found on the south and east side of the lake). Keep following the magma lake while heading toward the east side of Shadowmoon Village. Don't worry about completing the quests.

==Note== Don't fall into the magma, it burns and you will lose hp while in it, so don't go after the ash that is in the green waters.

3. Once you get to the east side of Shadowmoon Village and run out of Ash and Diemetradons, head east to Sheth'lon Wreckage and kill mobs there until you get the three journal pages needed for The Sketh'lon Wreckage.

4. Hearthstone to Shadowmoon Village and turn in The Sketh'lon Wreckage, get the follow up.

5. Go outside the main gate and kill Infernal Attackers until done with Besieged! Turn it in at the entrance to Shadowmoon Village. Get the follow up.

1. Go to Legion Hold, southwest of Shadowmoon Village. Easiest way to do this is to fly up to the communicator at (23.6, 36.9). Try to position yourself between the wall and communicator. Put on the disguise (Box of Tricks in your bag) and listen to the conversation. Once it is done go back to Shadowmoon Village.

2. Ouside the main gate turn in To Legion Hold. Get the follow up.

3. Go back to Legion Hold. This time go to (22, 35) where you will find Fel Reaver Armor Plate on the ground (next to a huge fel reaver). Loot it.
Now go to (26, 41), green lake on map, and loot the Fel Reaver Power Core from the bottom of the lake.

4. Go back to main gate of Shadowmoon Village and turn in Setting Up the Bomb. Get the follow up.

5. Once again go to Legion Hold (22, 39). Activate the Fel Bomb while standing on a green circle in front of Prophetess Cavrylin. There is an elite named Morgroron that wonders in and out of the area. Wait for him to leave. You will probably have to kill Prophetess Cavrylin and then activate the bomb. Go back and turn in Blast the Infernals! Get the follow up.

excellent job!

When Northland launched, We went there, who thought to level up here in the shadowmoon Valley? You must be very catious!

Once WOW, Always WOW

Nice guide and some suggestions

Well done Krowa. I really like it. My suggestions though are directed to wow-pro admins. Why this guide is not in the Horde leveling guides page, it is completed and does not fit in "Needed guides" page. Any possibility to include this guide in the addon as well, in addition to Netherstorm (Hopefully Krowa will make it) guide. By this all outland reagins will be coverd in excellency.

Sure. I guess I can do

Jiyambi. Let me know when you find out if the Netherstorm guide is being worked on or not. If you still need it done, I'll be happy to tackle it.

This is very, very, very

This is very, very, very good. For more than one reason.

  1. The guide is amazing. Very complex, nothings has to be added, great layout, so good to see that you've decided to follow Jame's format! Really, it makes it alot easier to follow if all did the same!
  2. You're helping Jame's big task. This is probably the best. Jame got a lot of work with his Leveling Addon, and the rest of the Wrath of the Lich King guides.
A huge thanks to your both for this hard work!

I'm glad you found this

I'm glad you found this guide useful. I thought it made sense to follow a well laid out format that Jame had established with his guides. Good to see that the guide is being used.

oops!

Just a note to say that when in disguise and done talking tot he commander, DO NOT mount up again as it will break the disguise and you will be dispatched with haste. Jawdropping!

I can't believe this. I've

I can't believe this. I've been waiting for a Shadowmoon guide for a while. And for Jame to add it to his horde leveling guide? That's fantastic.

Do you plan on writing an Alliance one anytime soon?

-Edit- And you even made different circuits for aldor/scryer? Awesome.

Thank you for your comment.

Thank you for your comment. For right now I have no plans to write an Alliance guide. Maybe one day down the road if it isn't done yet. Originally I was going to work on the Netherstorm Leveling Guide, but someone else had signed up for it, so that's how I ended up writing the Shadowmoon guide instead.

Hmm, I've heard nothing from

Hmm, I've heard nothing from the person who was planning to write that Netherstorm guide. Are you still interested in doing one? If so, I can message them to be sure, and if they don't respond (I suspect they have gone inactive), the guide is all yours.

Thank you

Impressive. Most impressive.

Thank you for making the awsome guide. Looks just like one of Jame's guides and I would say that is highest praise there is! Had to register on wow-pro just to comment.

Wow!

Excellent guide. This was as good as James guides and that is saying something. I had never been to shadowmoon valley until finding this guide and I really enjoyed it. Thank you so much for your time and effort.

Thank you so very much.

Thank you so very much. When I decided to make this guide, I never imagined I would be getting so many nice comments. This was my first guide ever so I'm very happy to hear that it is working out well.

Couple small mistakes...

I'm almost through the guide and have noticed a couple small errors. The first two are just spelling errors:

"Kill as many Infernal Attackers as you run into while doing other quests. You have to steel aggro from the Shadowmoon Scouts to get the credit for the kill."

Should be "steal aggro",

"==Note== Don't fall into the magma, it burns and you will loose hp while in it, so don't go after the ash that is in the green waters."

Should be "lose hp".

Finally, one of the coords is off.

"Go south/southeast to (57,53). Kill Haalum. He is southwest from Ancient Shadowmoon Spirit. Disable totems, kill adds, then kill him. Loot Haalum's Medallion Fragment."

Haalum is at (57, 73).

Great guide so far. Thanks a bunch!

Thanks for the info. Fixed

Thanks for the info. Fixed typos and updated the coords. If you find more, let me know.

Very nice - get you closer to the Loremaster Achievement

I followed this guide over the weekend and experienced excellent results. All steps worked as outlined. After completing the guide, I was 83 out of 90 quests completed towards the achievement. A few comment/suggestions here for those working on the Loremaster achievement.

1. Definitely complete the Gorefiend's quests. There were three plus one more after the turn-in of 3 quests.
2. Kill Overseer Ripsaw and get the Illidari-Bane Shard, which will open up a small quest line and I was able to get over the 90 limit.
3. The visit to Altruis and the three follow-up quests do not count towards the Shadowmoon achievement. However, they do count for Nagrand achievement so just in case you are a few short for Nagrand.

In any case, this is a solid guide and thus highly recommended. Thank you very much, Krowa. Smiling

Thanks for using this guide

Thanks for using this guide and for the comments. I'm happy to hear it works well. Do you remember at which point you killed the Overseer Ripsaw? Let me know and I can add it into the guide. Smiling

Nice guide :)

Really nice guide guys Smiling

Ripsaw pats around roughly in the front area of Legion Hold.

There is also another drop quest from Smith Gorlunk http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=10754 that I usually do while working on "Reclaiming Holy Grounds."

On my later toons that I started taking through SMV, I began to combine the "Cipher of Damnation - Grom'tor's Charge" with the Earthmender escort since I was killing the same mobs that drop keys & there are lots of boxes in there. Just a suggestion Smiling

In regards to the Netherwing dailies, I was able to two man Zuluhed with my buddy tanking (at the time he was a 77 DK). Just try to clear the bottom two rooms & pull him in to one so you avoid the archers. Then when Zuluhed puts up his portal to summon his elite demon, just have pull Zuluhed to the other room before his demon shows up (that you cleared prior to engaging him). If you continue on to do the Netherwing dailies (you need epic flying) the SMV achievement seems a guarantee. I have always got it, but I am not sure if I would have if I did not do these. But come on, Netherdrakes are cool mounts Sticking out tongue

If you do not do the Netherwing dailies & are looking for the SMV achievement might a suggest: http://www.wowwiki.com/Shadowmoon_Valley_quests

Hope this helps!

There is always tomorrow & there is always hope...

Soon

Well Right now I am level 68, but I hope to use your leveling guide at 70! It looks pretty good from what I've seen.http://www.wow-pro.com/sites/all/modules/smileys/packs/example/smile.png

If you come upon any

If you come upon any mistakes, please let me know. Otherwise I hope it is helpful when you get to using it. Smiling

Thanks a bunch. If you find

Thanks a bunch. If you find any mistakes or have any additions you think I need to incorporate when you are going through Shadowmoon Valley, let me know. I know there are quite a few group quests in this area that I did not include because it is so hard to find a group here. I plan on talking my guildies into helping me out with the "Zahulu the Wacked" so I can try out the dailies and add them in. This will also get us closer to having enough quests for the Shadowmoon Valley achievement as well as being able to increase the netherwing rep.

Wooo, this looks awesome. Im

Wooo, this looks awesome. Im currently leveling a Frost Mage, hes 62 at the moment, (4 days /played :<<< ) so i'll soon be around the right level, where i believe i should give this guide a try. Usually, im 69, nearly 70 when i start in Shadow Moon, but i reckon this will be a great help and probably take me to 71 or so, which will be good for when i start Northrend. So, id just like to say in advance to you, thanks alot for this awesome looking guide, congrats to your husband on clearly having what us gaming lads are after, and a massive thanks to Jame, for all your hard work, which has helped me so much over the years in leveling my Paladin, Hunter, Rogue, Priest, Death Knight and Mage.

I'm speechless. I never expected this to happen. It looks like one of my guides, this is awesome Eye

I promise I'll try the guide myself as soon as I get a character in that level range again!

Thanks. I tried very

Thanks. Smiling I tried very hard to follow your guidelines on how to write a guide. I love how your guides are well organized and easy to read, so I wanted to do the same here. This was my first guide ever and I'm glad I had your guides right there to model after. If you find any mistakes or have suggestions on adding other quests into the circuits, please let me know.

Ahhhh! My life is complete!

Ahhhh! My life is complete! With the completion of this guide, my wife is now a full-fledged gamer!

What more could a guy ask for? Laughing out loud

<3 I love you, honey! You did a great job! <3

Hahaha, wonderful She did

Hahaha, wonderful Eye She did do an awesome job, that is for sure!

Wow, I'm really impressed. I

Wow, I'm really impressed. I haven't read it in detail at all yet, just skimmed through it, but if I didn't know better, it looks like one of Jame's guides! I do have a question: will this guide get us the Shadowmoon Valley achievement? If not, would you be willing to add an addendum to it at a later time that will get us that achievement (including group quests and what-not)? I know a lot of folks are only doing these higher level Outland zones for achievement purposes.

Anyway, I'm definitely going to try out this guide and also put it into TourGuide form if you don't mind. It looks great, thanks very much for the hard work, again I'm quite impressed!

Real quick edit: you should hide the picture (file attachments) at the bottom, you can do this by unchecking the option when you edit the guide. I'll go ahead and do it for you this time, but now you know how to in the future Eye

Oh and it looks like this is just Horde, so I'm changing the title accordingly, correct me if this is wrong.

Thanks for the great review

Thanks for the great review and the edits. You are correct, this is horde side only. I'm not entirely sure about the Shadowmoon Valley achievement being covered here, but will look into it. If not, I will add an addendum to it.
