Revision of The Snows of Northrend - In 20 steps from Wed, 2008-12-10 06:01

The Snows of Northrend

Introduction

This guide is an guide on how to complete "The Snows of Northrend" Achievement,
it lists all quests and explains how to do them, I have also tried to use the same color coding and formatting as Jame uses his leveling guide because people it's easier to do it the way people are familiar with.



Color Code:

* Quests
* Items
* Locations
* Quest objectives to kill
* NPCs
* (Locs)/(xx,xx)



The Guide


1. Where in the World is Hemet Nesingwary?

Archmage Pentarus in Krasu's Landing in Dalaran offers this quest at level 76.
Once you got the quest, and are ready to leave Dalaran then talk to Archmage Pentarus and he will teleport you to Scholar Basin close to
A guy named Monte Muzzleshot (39,58), Deliver the quest to him and get the follow up [Welcome to Sholazar Basin].

2. Welcome to Sholazar Basin
Travel east to Nessingwary Base Camp and deliver the quest to Hemet Nesingwary(27,58)

3. The Camp
There are three quests in the camp, get all of them:
[It Could Be Anywhere!] From Chad.
[Venture Co. Misadventure] from Debaar.
[Need an Engine, Take an Engine] from Weslex Quickwrench to the east of the camp.

Note: [It Could Be Anywhere!] the ring can drop from ANY mob in the zone so just keep the quest and hand it inn when you get it.

4.Need an Engine, Take an Engine
Travel back towards where the guy in the parachute was, in the same area you should see a crashed
plain, and in front of it is the [Flying Machine Engine] (38,56) loot it and return to Weslex Quickwrench
turn in the quest and get the follow-up [Have a Part, Give a Part]

5. Have a Part, Give a Part
Go to Swindlegrin's Dig(32,47) to the north/northeast, it's right on the north side of The Suntouched Pillar.
Go around here and kill Venture Co. Ruffian's and Excavators and pick up [Venture Co. Spare Parts] from the ground,
while looking for Engineer Helice(35,47) standing in the middle of the digsite, she gives the quest [Engineering a Disaster]

if she’s not here it means someone else is escorting her, she’s probably back in a few minutes.
Take her quest and escort her to safety, after that go back to the digsite and do what you need to complete the two quests,
then return to the Nesingwary Base Camp.



6. Back in Camp
Deliver [Venture Co. Misadventure] get the follow-up [Wipe That Grin Off His Face]
Deliver [Have a Part, Give a Part] Now Weslex will repair/rebuild his flying machine and it becomes a Flight Master.
Get the new Flight path.

Optional: Right next to Weslex is Professor Calvert talk to her and get the quest [Aerial Surveillance], we will go to where it's delivered later so you can just pick it up now if u want to.

7. Wipe That Grin Off His Face
Go back to Swindlegrin's Dig(32,47)
Meatpie is a big blue guy, patrolling a Wooden ramp (35,49)
Foreman Swindlegrin is a Goblin inside a shredder machine, he’s located atop of the same ramp as
Meatpie is patrolling. Kill them both and return to Nessingwary Base Camp.

8. Shoot The Apple!!!
Deliver [wipe That Grin Off His Face] to Debaar, this will make 3 new quests available, go to Drostan first and get the quest
[Kick, What Kick?] first. equip the RJR Rifle and target Lucky Wilhelm and click it to complete the quest.
Deliver the quest and get the follow-up [The Great Hunter's Challenge].
also get [Rhino Mastery: The Test] & [Dreadsaber Mastery: Becoming a Predator]

9.Let the Killing Begin!
Okay now we are going to kill Dreadsaver's and Shardhorn Rhino's until you got 15kills of each.
I recommend killing them in this area marked by blue/light blue.

When you are done return to Nessingwary Base Camp.

10. Quests, quests and more quests
Deliver [Rhino Mastery: The Test] and get [Rhino Mastery: The Chase]
Deliver [Dreadsaber Mastery: Becoming a Predator] and get [Dreadsaber Mastery: Stalking the Prey]

Three new quests should be available get them:

Do this while following the next steps.



11: To the Oracle
Walk south from the Nessingwary Base Camp across a wood "bridge"
and continue south, on the left side you should see an Orcale Soo-rahm(25,66)
should be easy to spot by the yellow “?” on the mini map.
Deliver [Rhino Mastery: The Chase] and get [An Offering for Soo-rahm]

12. Crock's and Ropes
Go North into the river, and follow the river's north side eastwards while killing all crocks.
when u get to the rivers end then keep going east/north east towards where we found the Flying Engine and the man in parachute earlier, while killing all crocks and Cobras you see. now in this area walk around looking for "Sturdy

Vine's" they look like this:

right click a vein to make a random fruit drop down, loot it, keep running around killing cobras and crocks while using vine's to get fruits. Also sometimes there might spawn an NPC instead of a fruit, talk to him/her to get a fruit of your choice:)
do this until you got the following quests completed:

[An Offering for Soo-rahm]
[Crocolisk Mastery: The Trial]
[Some Make Lemonade, Some Make Liquor]

Go south east to River's Heart(50,61)
If you don't have the Flight path there, get it now.

Optional: turn in the quest [Aerial Survillance].

Fly back to Nesingwary Base Camp.

13. Distillation
Deliver [Crocolisk Mastery: The Trial] and get the follow-up [Crocolisk Mastery: The Plan]
Deliver [Some Make Lemonade, Some Make Liquor] get the follow-up [Still At It]

Okay we are now going to do the quest [Stil At It] we need to click things,
There are 5 things to click on, 3 barrels: Papayas, Banana & Oranges. also there is a Brazier and a Pressure Valve.
Take a look around so you learn what’s where, then find a place where u can click all of them easily, I did it in front of the banana's. When you are ready talk to "Tipsy" McManus to start the event.
When you are done, A barrel will spawn loot it, and then deliver the quest.

Get the follow-up [The Taste Test]
go to Hemmet Nesingwary and right click the [Jungle Punch Sample]
turn around and look in the same direction as Hemet,
Haldarius is the Stable master he’s in front of you to the left, use [Jungle Punch Sample] on him.

So then where is Tamara? She’s at River's Heart. The place we where just before we flew back to the Camp.
so fly back there, when you land she’s to the right of you standing in front of a tent,
use [Jungle Punch Sample] on her. and fly back to Nesingwary Base Camp.
Deliver the [The Taste Test]

14. Grazer & Orcale steaks... Hey Wait a sec!

Walk around in the area and the beach until you complete both
[Crocolisk Mastery: The Plan] & [Dreadsaber Mastery: Stalking the Prey]

And then return to Nesingwary Base Camp.

17. The Drakestalker
Deliver [Crocolisk Mastery: The Ambush]
Deliver [Dreadsaber Mastery: Ready to Pounce]

A new quest should now be available from Hemet Nesingway
get the quest [In Search of Bigger Game] from Hemet.

Here is how to use the abilities
#1 Standard Melee Attack ability.

#4 Target for Hemet, Makes Hemet attack that target, use it on her often.
#5 Charge, gain some distance, charge her to stun her for a few seconds.

Tactics:
Go find the dragon. use charge to stun her then gore + run away, use #4 to make Hemet attack her and lead her to his traps, lead her to Dorian's Outpost and use charge+gore and run away + make her run into traps until she dies.
Should be easy.

Comments

Thanks

Thanks a lot for all the feedback and corrections and typos:D
Brune - Amazing work you did doing all the trouble of correcting so many mistakes and typos:D Thanks a lot man.
hehe Norwegian is my first language, but I still hope my guide atleast was understandable:)

Anyways thanks to the help from you guys I feel that this guide finally is reader friendly.

my problem at the moment is two things:

1. I want to set items (and maybe even quests) as wowhead links, but
then they both will have same formating? is there anyway to insert a link without it getting the blue link looks? like keep the yellow color on the quests for example?

and 2. How should I formate the "headlines" of each of the steps?Smiling
any suggestions?

Thanks a lot for all help:)
I hope this guide have been of help for some at least:)

Formatting Not Withstanding.....

Despite the cosmetic issues with the formatting that others have mentioned, the guide was easy to follow and allowed me to easily acquire this achievement. Cool

Therefore...my hats off to Mazetar! Smiling

Thanks for the information!

spelling mistake

Found a mistake:

Note: [It Could Be Anywhere!] the ring can drop from ANY mob in the zone so just keep the quest and hand it inn when you get it.

It should be in.

Brune's picture

A few things to say...

Useful guide,

but I'm not too fond of your colour scheme, to be honest.

Not
Entirely to blow my own trumpet, check out this. It's a guide to colour formatting, including the ones Jame uses.

Some of the other spelling needs a little fix. 'Orcale' springs to mind from my quick read. I'll go back now and try and get them all:

Oh, and more Wowhead linkage, especially to the actualy achievement, would be very helpful.

Also, I'd recommend darkening your title colours just a touch.

EDIT:

I've put [...] when I've removed something that might not be obvious Sticking out tongue

I've numbered each passage that I'm looking at, simply for ease of correction, together.

I've bolded what I would suggest.

I won't talk about formatting, since you've said you need to go back and do more.

There are also certain sections where there's no space between a word and a coords in brackets. You may want to fix that, purely because it looks more professional.

1. and formatting as Jame uses in his leveling guide because people find it's easier to do it the way they are familiar with.

2. Note: This guide is not 100% finished, I will go over it and re-format it and fix bugs later, when Real Life gives me a break, meanwhile I hope you like it and bare with my half-done formatting, and please let me know what you think of it Smiling

3. Archmage Pentarus in Krasus' Landing in Dalaran offers this quest at level 76.
Once you've got the quest, and are ready to leave Dalaran, [...] talk to Archmage Pentarus and he will teleport you to Scholazar Basin close to a guy named Monte Muzzleshot (39,58), Deliver the quest to him and get the follow up [Welcome to Sholazar Basin].

4. Note: The ring for [It Could Be Anywhere!] [...] can drop from ANY mob in the zone so just keep the quest and hand it in when you get it.

plane, and in front of it is the [Flying Machine Engine] (38,56) loot it and return to Weslex Quickwrench

Will do more, and put bolds in red soon when I have time.

Hope you don't take this too critically, just looking to improve your guide, and is English not your first language? These little mistakes are perfectly fine, since I think it is Sticking out tongue

Jahwo's picture

Woha That's some extensive

Woha Shocked That's some extensive feedback. Very very nice Smiling

Brune's picture

Yes. This is what happens if

Yes. This is what happens if you're organised. Don't do it.

You do everything you need to do, the house is gleaming, you've got no WoW...

And bam. This is just another form of grinding, honestly.

one more wee spelling error

This one leaps out at me, but was missed by Brune. In the note at the top it should read "bear with my...". The verb "bare" means to strip away, whereas the verb "bear" means to tolerate or carry.

A wonderful guide Mazetar, and good feedback Brune. And I agree that some links to wowhead would be good additions.
Keep going!

Damn, Jame beat me to say

Damn, Jame beat me to say the colors were too bright Sticking out tongue

I'll just quote something in here quick:

Quote:

[*]Optional: Right next to Weslex is Professor Calvert talk to her and get the quest [=#ebbc00][Aerial Surveillance][/], we will go to where it's delivered later so you can just pick it up now if u want to.

I think you misspelled the color or misspelled the [/] because I can see it Eye

Also instead of saying "u want to" you should say "you want to"

It's much nicer to read for the older folks on the site. (I said older, not old!)

Just one more thing, run the guide through a spellcheck. There's a few places here and there that I found some stuff misspelled.

Other than that, great guide! Smiling

Jame's picture

Good job! Suggestions for

Good job!

Suggestions for improvement:

-Change the color code for NPCs and Locations. They are too bright, it makes it hard to read them.
-Make the items wowhead tooltips. Consider doing it for the quests too.
