Kurich's Alliance Cataclysm Guide - Elwynn Forest

Introduction


Welcome to my Elwynn Forest leveling guide!
The Northshire parts of it are a slightly modified version of Axian's Human Starting Zone Guide, used with permission and thanks.

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.

Please post feedback, errors, or suggestions as comments.

Gentle Criticism

Really not bad especially considering it's your first (I've never stepped into the realm of trying to write one).

One error or maybe just an update: Work, work! Step 6 is now 6 Linen Scraps. That's all I noticed down to the step of discovering Jerod's Landing before the crashes discouraged me from logging in again.

A suggestion I would have for you is to be more descriptive about directions and locations. Example:

7.Run to Stonefield Farm, Kill Kobold Tunnelers on the way. (Detecting a pattern yet?)

8.Find Tommy Joe Stonefield on the west edge of the farm, near the stream. Turn in Young Lovers, get Speak with Gramma.

9.Go back east across the farm to "Auntie" Bernice Stonefield in front of the house. Turn in Pie for Billy, get Back to Billy.

10. Inside the house, speak to Gramma Stonefield. Turn in Speak with Gramma, get Note to William.

Also, Manhunt is hard >< Taking on 3 NPCs of the same as your own level is rough, and I'd hoped they would have toned it down, but they haven't. It may be good to suggest that, if all else fails, the player may want to concentrate on killing Morgan the Collector out in the open. That way if the player dies, they can run back, resurrect, and loot Morgan.

Thanks for the

Thanks for the feedback!

Once they let us use add-ons again I was planning to go back through and add coordinates for lots of things, but being more descriptive in the text description is also a good idea.

I did Manhunt (and all my guides) with a hunter, paladin and rogue and found it quite do-able, but it's probably trickier for other classes. I'll add that suggestion too.

I believe I'm done

Going live with the guide, please be gentle with the criticism, it's my first!
