This line disappears from the guide as soon as you turn in 'Joining the Hunt'. I'd suggest moving this one down and turning it in last. Only reason I see to having this one first is the level restriction on the rest of the quests in the area.

Unfortunately, it's the only turn in before you hearth out and have to fly back. I'd add a note suggesting level 15 as you head there. You can level up on the way.


I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame you.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: f Farstrider

Yeah, the QID for the step is silly.   It should be moved before the turnin to the lead-in quest and use that QID.

I'll re-arrange the section as you suggest.

Loch Modan update

Removed unneeded zone tags, added in breadcrumb quest from Ironforge, added in missing quests, re-arranged certain quests to better flow for those coming from Dun Morogh. Added missing notes, missing cords. Fixed a few notes and cords.

Ordering of quests, missing quests for Loch Modan guide

I just ran through this guide and some quests are missing, and a few, because of order, cannot be done later.

These quests are missing from the guide:

And the ordering needs to be adjusted on these: should be before should be before

And finally, it looks like this guide should begin with which will lead to sequence that completes some missing quests from the Dun Morogh guide and pulls you into Loch Modan in a way that you won't miss some of these breadcrumb quests. 

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Quest Compulsion in Loch Modan

Thanks for catching these.   I'll updater the guide later today.


annasender's picture

Will get more info if you need

I can do a full analysis of the dependencies and optimize the sequencing of the quests if you like and report back.  Just let me know.  Nothing I like more than info sleuthing.


Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Noo need ...

The moment I started poking at it, I realized that I need to start with the Hero's call board and re-arrange the guide.

This will take a bit to work out and I will have to spin up a gnome (just cause I never did one post cata) and run it through the guide to make sure it works right.

I'm thinking we need to crank up the standards on the guides.  We are not using the  RANK tag in many of them and now that I am going for loremaster, I can see there are alot of quests missing even at rank=3. 

Rank=3 should satisfy the OCD folks who want to get everything in a zone, Rank=2 should get you the zone acheivement and the exploration acheivement + level you properly for the next zone (and maybe extra) , Rank=1 should just aim to get you through the main quest lines, no side lines, and barely level you.

Loch Modan guide

Remember it best if you finish Dun Morogh guide at Level 12, as a couple of quests for Loch Modan can be picked up before you go there, and for these you need to be Level 12. I forget the names now, But 1st one is in the throne room after you complete the final quest of the Dun Morogh guide, the other is in Stormwind. If your going to go to Stormwind, you can quickly do the Deeprun tram Rat quest and follow up.

I have all these on my local Loch Modan write-up just never got round to completing and posting it.


Ludovicus_Maior's picture


I have since spoken to AnnaSender and she is going to take a crack at the resequencing. 

I will then test her mods on my own toon, precisely leveled to 12, as you suggest :-).

Back to Felwood and my quest for Loremaster.

Gylin's picture

Leveling to 12

Yeah thats the annoying bit for Dun Morogh, blizzard removed a bunch of quests not long before cata was released, and only added one extra in. Add that to the fact that you get no XP for any mob you kill at the airfield, that why I put the note in about grinding dark iron until so far into 11, as the remainder you to get you to 12 will come from all the turnins.

If I get a chance, I will try and finish up Loch Modan, and see if Wetlands needs anything more doing to it

annasender's picture

I don't think 12 is going to be required to come in

I'm part way through mapping it all out, and the lead in sequence is level 7 or 9 (two choices) and the follow ons are many level 10 quests.  So entering at level 12 is not necessary I think.  The guide was somewhat backwards in it's sequence bringing you into the higher level quests in the zone first.  

I'll finish my sequencing and optmization, record/test it and will be back with the results.

Revised Loch Modan Guide in my grubby hands

AnnaSender's revised Loch Modan guide is in my hands.


I just spun up a Gnome Warlock and am testing the guide starting tomorrow.



Gylin's picture

The Loch Modan guide in the

The Loch Modan guide in the addon was only done as a temp' measure, as I had a hard drive failure and lost the last couple of days before Cata went live and my code with it, WKJezz just blasted through them, think LM was done in about an hour before Cata went live.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Matching quest lines

As long as it is a good match with the quest lines from the Gnome and Dwarf quest lines, it can be adjusted.


wkjezz's picture

This guide needs

Some love and fine tuning, yes.  I was not supposed to do this zone, but the person who had it was unable to do this in time for launch, so this source code was completed litterally 2 minutes before they flipped the switch for Cata.  Not my finest work as is being discovered, looks like it is being actively improved though


Explorers' league Document (6 of 6)

This quest is not in the current  -loch modan (12-20)- , so at the end of the guide i miss one quest and dont get the achievement: [Loch Modan Quests] but after getting the quest: Explorers' league  Document (6 of 6) and delivering it i have done all available quests in Loch Modan.

You could probably put it after step: 60 because step 61 sends you to get the farstrider lodge flight point, so why not grab this quest on the way there. You can find the quest at these coordinates close to some stoneskull statue and tablet, inbetween some trees. --> coordinates: 73,36. and then after flying back to thelsamar to deliver some quests why not put delivering this new quest somewhere inbetween?

Thanks for your time

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

All comments incorporated!

I added the original source code and then posted revisions for each change.

Should be ready for the next shot.

I patched my own leveling guide with it and will validate with a low level toon sometime.

Thank you *very* much, that's a big help!

Tested and tweaked

OK, I tested the guide through the altered portions.

Things seem to behave more smoothly and I added a few warnings and coords to be more helpful.

Ludovicus - I just promoted

Ludovicus - I just promoted you to Trusted Member due to all these excellent feedback posts. If you'd like, you are welcome to edit the source code and post it in the wiki page above - it should be editable by you now.

I really appreciate all the work you've done on this! Sadly this guide was the last one we did before getting the main Cataclysm version of the addon out, and was *extremely* rushed, so needs lots of work.

Thank You!

Thank you Wow-Pro for making these guides so easy for people to use, and Thank you Ludovicious for pointing out the ordering of the quests. I was wondering if there was a prereq that I hadn't done previously.

Wrong Order

Version: 2.1.0

One of the quests for this guide is out of order- the guide says to pick up Who's In Charge Here? after doing A Tiny, Clever Commander, but this quest is not available until after doing Kobold and Kobolder.
