"Next Quest"

This choice between the Wrynn Arsenal and Arcane Sanctum is really wreaking havoc. The step after choosing the Arcane Sanctum was just being ignored, then the entire rest of the guide was broken, sending me all over the map killing various named mobs before I stopped to figure out what went wrong with the guide. I was able to get back on track by editing the "A Next Quest" entry to only refer to "An Audience With The Archmage" and it's QID, along with removing all PRE except the "At Your Command" quest.

Incorrect placement

Once you hand in What the Draenei found, you're relocated to Terokkar Refuge and given a few quests, but the guide tells you to hand in quests with Crystal-Shaper Barum who's not in the area. This bit of the guide needs some re-work.

Re: Incorrect placement

I just ran this through on a toon and it seems to work right. 

Handing in Barum's quests earlier is awkward, as you you have to travel quite a bit south from the mines to turn then in.

Re: Incorrect placement

Are you suggesting that we turn in the quests to Crystal-Shaper Barum before going into the mine?

T Pieces of Us|QID|33734|M|76.71,55.24|N|To Crystal-Shaper Barum, who moved a bit.|
T Burning Sky|QID|33740|M|76.71,55.24|N|To Crystal-Shaper Barum|
T Barum's Notes|QID|33761|M|76.71,55.24|N|To Crystal-Shaper Barum|
R Aruuna Crystal Mine|QID|33579|M|77.76,41.23;78.39,35.49|CS||N|Go to the mine entrance.|
C Ancient Prism|QID|33579|M|82.72,37.89|N|Go to the right of the tracks and cross the rock bridge to get to it.|
T What the Draenei Found|QID|33579|M|82.64,37.78|N|To Raksi, who snunk in behind you.|

This would avoid having to go back to bridge after the teleport.

which building did you

which building did you chose?  (I've a toon coming up into the zone)

I've played through this with

I've played through this with another alt, and there's a whole mass of quest lines that need to be moved/shifted and conditions added. I've made quite a few alterations, but I need to run through it again today or tomorrow with my 96 priest. Once it's all done, is it ok to update/revise this? It's quite major...

Aldavor's picture

Re: I've played through this

OK, submitted new revision for this guide with some major flow changes and amendments. As far as I can tell, all the quests are now included, and there are traps for type of outpost building selected. Please advise if there are any critical issues.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Re: I've played through this

Thanks Aldavor , for the update.I had almost the same changes, but yours looks more baked than mine.

I'll finish playing through my toon in the zone and tweak if nececessary.


Aldavor's picture

Had to update...

Just gone through this again, choosing the Arcane Sanctum as the outpost, and found it to be incomplete/unfollowable. Have refactored it, amended some QIDs and ordering - hopefully (!) it should be ok but I'll need to run thru with another toon (which I'll have to roll and level up... *sigh*)

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Had to update...

I just happen to have a worgen druid who picked Arcane Sanctum who just started the zone, having just gone past the mine.

I'll run him through today and see wassup.

missing quest?

A pilgrimage gone awry, QID34802, you find the quest giver while running to Tomb of Lights, I dont see a preq for it on wowhead or anything.


01/24/2015 - Editted to add this:  (QID34709 is alli verison of 34710) -- COPIED from Horde guide, Emma has this between the section of the orges (final QID 36512) and before the Jorune Mine.  Alliance ver needs to revamped for quest flow.

wrong order of guide...

Starting guide with my Alliance toon, did the arcane sanctum,

Then did:

l Pure Crystal Dust|QID|34263|M|78.21,14.72|N|Pure Crystal Dust: Lootable object for Garrison Resources and decent XP. At the back of the right hand walkway.|RANK|3|

and the Bonus objective in the cave, then when I came out it said to:

A Why Is The Brew Gone?|QID|34773|M|69.60,21.60|N|From Quartermaster O'Riley|RANK|2|

But NO QUEST is there, according to wowhead I have to get the sanctum going first... so put all quest as 'skipped' till I get to

; Mage Tower

 ; A An Audience With The Archmage|QID|34631|M|69.9,20.8|N|From Foreman Eksos|


I'll edit this as I go through it....

* Edit #1 * -- Had to manual skip ALL the quest listed from the 'brew' though to the Mage tower quests...

* Edit #2 * - And then once you finish and return to the Fort and do:

A Next Steps|QID|34875|PRE|34609;34612;34619|M|0,0|N|From Magister Serena|

T Next Steps|QID|34875|M|69.6,21.1|N|To Magister Serena|

A The Foot of the Fortress|QID|34908|PRE|34875|M|69.6,21.1|N|From Magister Serena|


then the other quest from above are avail the Wanted(s) and Why the Brew gone.  Also you can pick up One Step Ahead

; The Battle for Shattrath

H Fort Wrynn|QID|36801|N|Hearth back or fly to Fort Wrynn|

A One Step Ahead|QID|36801|M|69.61,20.80|N|From Sloan McCoy|


*EDIT #3*

Okay.. following to path to get to:

R The Pilgrim's Road|QID|34578|M|71.27,24.07;72.53,24.53;73.13,26.42;74.63,30.75;72.66,38.06;67.30,42.83|CS|N|Its a long ride. We will break it up a little. Head out the back.|

When you hit 72.66,38.06 this would where to put in the:

; Sometime when in


** okay, now I see why it was down there, as you dont get the lead in quest UNTIL you finished the

Due Cause to Celebrate|QID|34711| Quest.... **

(grumbles about thinking I was better then Ludo, when I wasnt it)  ;)



* Edit #4 *

okay, it has me run all the way down to the Tomb of Lights, then onto Gordal Foothills, to do:

T Going to the Gordunni|QID|34578|M|69.57,67.87|N|To Miall|

A Dropping Bombs|QID|34976|M|62.57,67.87|N|From Miall|


T Armor Up|QID|34982|M|69.8,20.8|N|To Miall|

when that is part of the Artillery Tower, had to 'skip' them all to get to:

C Wanted: Kil'uun|QID|34103|M|66.20,34.40;72.90,31.40;72.95,25.95;67.05,36.35;73.20,28.30;72.75,34.15;66.25,31.77;68.88,27.29;71.28,24.52;69.80,37.25|CN|N|Kil'uun, Circles clockwise south of Fort Wrynn around Voljin's Pride. Party of 3 suggested.|

T Wanted: Kil'uun|QID|34103|M|69.43,21.14|N|To Patrick Messer|

And also wanted me to turn it in first, before continuing to...

A Dropping In|QID|34913|PRE|34908|M|62.0,69.3|N|From Magister Serena|

BUT it didn't show the T The Foot of the Fortress|QID|34908|M|62.0,69.3|N|To Magister Serena| to turn in, only to grab:

A Dropping In|QID|34913|PRE|34908|M|62.0,69.3|N|From Magister Serena|

(but turning in the 34908, did auto accept the 34913)



Going back to playing, will edit again later ;)

Re: wrong order of guide... (The Flow In the Zone)

Though I did not test the arcane sanctum section yet, it clearly forks part of the guide.

The pickup and drop off of the Wanted quests is always an issue.

I figure I'll have to put 4 toons though a new zone before you get everything.


PS:  Bahameye is a phased rare kill.  If you dont get it while on [Pale Moonlight], its gone (sadness).

As the Smoke Rises

As the Smoke Rises is not showing up for me in the game.

It says PRE 34711+34981, I have done 34981 but not 34711, the step is showing on the guide because I've done 34981, but it's not available to me (I built the artillery tower)

Emmaleah's picture

RE: As teh smoke Rises

I never saw the horde equivilent in game. It is on wowhead... but I have no clue where it is supposed to come from.  It is one of those things that perplexed me so I just left it commented out at the top of the horde guide.

Emmaleah == bravely leading the way since ... um a long time ago... Smiling

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Updated up to [The Battle for Shattrath]

Just played through the [The Plight of the Arakkoa] using Emmaleah's guide to plagarize from.

Of course, I've added improvements which she may choose to incoporate in hers :-).

Its funny in Talador.  Eveyone is screaming to find Kil'uun, and I bumped into him by accident 3 times, and had to kill it.

One time was right outside of Fort  Wrynn, so I kited him into the fort and yelled "Here is your dammed bird.  Kill it slowly!".


Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Updated tthough [The Only Way to Travel]

I have coded up to [The Only Way to Travel] but only played through [Going to the Gordunni].

I test that tonight.

After the forced movie watching is done.

Horde not Alliance

This appears to be the Horde guide, not the Alliance guide?

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Horde not Alliance (Talador)

The draft version of the guide is now in the website and addon.

Going to the Gordunni

Thanks for that. My run through the zone deviated from yours at Going to the Gordunni, so I've updated up to that point.

Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Going to the Gordunni

Whoa!  Thats not bad then.   My initial guide for Talador was generated by a pyhton program.  While there was enough information availible to generate the Talador guide that way, the Nagrand guide only has the main quest chain outlined.

I'll have to play that one through to figure out the order, though I'll bet that a printout of the Horde guide will be a good outline.


Ludovicus_Maior's picture

Re: Horde not Alliance

Darn it, it looks like I uploaded one of my early drafts and never updated it.

I hope I saved it somewhere or I am going to be pissed!
