Grab The Rise of the Darkspear from Jin'thala.

Go to Zen'Tabra in the training grounds to the east.

Turn in the quest at Zen'Tabra and accept: The Basics: Hitting Things.

Destroy 6 Tiki Targets in the training grounds. They are voodoo-masked target dummies.

When you're done, turn the quest in to Zen'Tabra and accept A Rough Start.

Go to the outskirts of the training grounds and kill Wildmane Cats for 6 Wildmane Cat Pelts. The pelts have a 100% droprate but the cats themselves does a scary leap when they are attacked.

Go back and turn in the quest and accept Proving Pit.

You must prove yourself to the trolls by fighting a naga in the proving pit. Just defeat the naga and turn in the quest.

Grab More Than Expected from Zen'Tabra.

Go to the village to the south-east and meet up with Vol'jin who's inside the main building overlooking the sea.

Turn in More Than Expected at Vol'jin. There will be a sequence at the fireplace showing you Vol'jin's argument with Garrosh Hellscream and why the trolls were kicked out from Orgrimmar. Accept the quest Moraya

Go to Moraya on the other side of Darkspear Hold. Pick up Crab Fishin' from Tora'jin on the way. He's outside Vol'jin's building.

Thank you. I only have two

Thank you. I only have two more things to do before the guide is 100%. That is:

  • Coordinates.

  • Fine tweaking.
  • Final version will be up as soon as this week's boring universtity studies will be over.

    On a side note - Bits

    On a side note - Bits recorded and anotated a guide for the echo isles in the addon. I'm not sure it follows your guide exactly, but in the addon section you may want to direct people to that ;)

    "Pointed sticks are NOT toys, regular sticks are fine."

    Things I never thought I'd say...

    "Your brother is not a dog! Get that leash off of him!"

    The dialogue between Vol'jin and Thrall is now in the beta. If interested, you can find it here:

    Thank you. I'll be sure to edit the guide as soon as I find the time for it.

    A help for the guide.

    Hey Manovan.

    If you haven't seen this video yet, it might help you finetune your guide;


    oh, & keep up the good work. Eye

    Ironically that was the video I used to make the first draft. ^^


    Hey, just started converting this guide into a format for the leveling addon. Please reply if someone has started on it or something, shouldn't be too long until I have finished, just need some help with quest id's.

    New formatting looks so much

    New formatting looks so much better.

    Something I didn't pick up the first time and is really so pernickety I feel a bit bad about pointing it out, but 'the cats themselves does a scary leap when they are attacked.' Ought to be 'do a scary leap'. Smiling

    Brune's picture

    Looks good!

    I know it's just the first draft, but I couldn't resist spell checking, sorry Sticking out tongue

    1) Naj'tess' Orb of Corruption ( Possessive apostrophe at the end because it ends in an 's'.

    2) In the antepenultimate (third last) and 4th last paragraphs, you seem to typo NPCs with a colon (NPC:s). Not sure what it is, but NPCs is just the plural of NPC (Non-Player Character)

    Also, you may want to move this to Cataclysm guides ( To go with the goblin one.

    I'm not sure how to move it so I leave that to Jiyambi.

    Thanks for pointing out the spelling errors. Please, keep them coming.

    Another thing, since

    Another thing, since TotalBiscuit was levelling a doorid, his The Rise of the Darkspear ( led to Zen'Tabra, the dr00d trainer.

    Other options:

    Ortezza, Hunter Trainer

    Tunari, Priest Trainer (Has two copies of the quest, presumably a bug/redundancy)

    Legati, Rogue Trainer

    Soratha, Mage Trainer

    Nekali, Shaman Trainer

    Nortet, Warrior Trainer

    Might want to list them all once, then replace Zen'Tabra with 'Your class trainer'?

    EDIT: After thinking for a bit, I presume the second instance of the priest quest is supposed to be for the warlock trainer, who is presumably not implemented.

    95% sure the warlock trainer is Voldreka.

    Ah, thanks a lot. It did

    Ah, thanks a lot. It did occur to me that we never got to experience any of the class quests but I didn't thought about the first quest leading to different NPCs. Are they all in the training grounds?

    Brune's picture

    As far as I can tell from

    As far as I can tell from what wowhead has so far, they're all identical, just leading to different NPCs, (however, there is a quest for each class to learn their first ability, wowhead has very few of these yet so I would recommend putting in a placeholder or ignoring them)
