Jame’s Alliance Leveling Guide – Chapter II (40-50)


Chapter II (40-50)Journey from Dustwallow Marsh to the Hinterlands


This is v2.0 of the guide. It has been revamped as mentioned in this news post to adapt to patch v2.3 changes. You can still find the old version of the guide here. At the same time, many other improvements have been made:

  • Introduction/Addons section has been updated
  • Kill everything on your way rule has been lifted unless you lack experience compared to the progress described in the guide
  • Grinding sessions removed and instances aren’t part of the leveling process anymore (no dependancy on groups)
  • Quests that aren’t elite anymore have been integrated
  • New patch 2.3 content has been integrated (Mudsprocket quests etc.)
  • Maps have been remade and a lot of errors have been corrected
  • Dustwallow Marsh circuits have been added
  • Leveling should be possible at a faster pace than before


This guide starts at level 40. However I hope that you followed the 1st chapter of this guide as well. Because a lot of pre-questing and flight path gathering is done in it and we will need it for this chapter. If you didn’t, it’s not that bad, you’ll just have to figure out yourself where to start, and if you are behind in XP, there will be optional circuits you can do to catch up. If you need guides for any other level range (from 1-41 for example) please take a look at this page.

This guide is made for FAST leveling through the use of Optimized Quest Circuits. With this guide, questing will be very efficient and you’ll not waste any second running around and trying to figure out in which order to do your quests. Follow each instruction carefully and you will see for yourself. The quest choices and order to do them are optimal so that you run as few as possible while doing the most possible, turning several quests at the same time. It will be like grinding, because you’ll be killing stuff almost non-stop, besides you’ll also be completing a bunch of quests at the same time!

Everything described in this guide can be done solo (beside when I say otherwise). You can, of course, follow this guide while duoing, grouping, it’s not a problem, it works too.

DISCLAIMER: This guide does NOT take into account tradeskills, class specific quests or PvP. It’s 100% focused on getting the most experience possible in the shortest possible time while doing a lot of quests and enjoying as much content as possible. Any race/class combination can do this guide. Any complaints about PvP, tradeskills, or class specific issues will be ignored.

Basic rules

  • Spend your talent points so that you kill things as fast as possible. (e.g: Priest should specialize in Shadow Talents, Warriors in Arms/Fury, etc.
  • Don’t waste your time trying to find groups for questing, you can solo everything that is described in this guide unless I say otherwise. Only group with someone when it’s not gonna be a waste of time (e.g: meeting the person at the other end of the zone to show him the way to where your quest is, that is a waste of time)
  • Try to always log out in an inn or in one of the major cities when you take a break.
  • When I say you should make an inn your new home location, it’s for a good reason, and it will save you much time.

Useful Addons

To get the most out of my guide, you should get an addon which displays coordinates, because I use them to describe locations in my guide (x,y). You can use any addon you like, but here’s a very simple one I use.


  • DMiniCoords – A simple box which displays coordinates, left-click it to move it where you like.


Below is a list of other addons I use, this is 100% optional though, it’s mostly for people who are curious to know which addons I use:

Side Note: In case you don’t know how to install add-ons, simply download an addon from one of the links above and unzip it. Then drag the unziped folder in your Addon folder (full path is c:\\Program Files\\World of Warcraft\\Interface\\Addons). Then, restart World of Warcraft and it should be working.

If it isn’t working, you might need to log out to your character selection screen and click on “Addons” in the lower-left corner. Tick the box that says “Load out of date Addons”. Re-launch WoW.

Shopping List

The Guide

Level 40

You should be in Stormwind right now. If you followed the previous chapter of this guide, you should have the quest [37] Return to Jaina.

Go to Theramore. If you got the quest [37] Return to Jaina, go to the Mage Quarter at the western end of Stormwind and speak with Archmage Malin at the foot of the tower there, he will teleport you to Theramore. When in Theramore, this time turn in [37] Return to Jaina. Better turn it in now while it still gives XP, the teleport won’t be useful to us anymore in the coming levels, and once the quest becomes grey to you, the teleport trick doesn’t work anymore.

If you don’t have that quest, fly to Menethil Harbor and take the boat to Theramore Isle. Or hearthstone if you’re bound in Theramore.

Sell junk, restock on food if you haven’t already.

1. When ready, follow the path northwest out of Theramore until you reach North Point. Turn in [38] A Grim Connection at Captain Darill and take both follow ups.

2. From there go north until (42,15). You’ll reach Blackhoof Village, we’ve been there in the previous guide. Here you need to loot Blackhoof Armaments, they look like this:

You need 7 of them. At the same time kill every Grimtotem Elder you find until you get 4 Grimtotem notes, which you need to combine to get the Grimtotem Battle Plan.

3. Once done, return to North Point and turn in both quests. Take the follow up.

4. Go to the area called “The Quagmire”. There go to Tabetha’s Farm (46,57) and turn in [39] Tabetha’s Assistance. Get the follow up [39] Raze Direhorn Post! as well as the other quests from this place:

  • [38] The Grimtotem Weapon
  • [39] Direhorn Raiders
  • [39] The Reagent Thief
  • [40] The Zeppelin Crash

** From now on kill every Noxious Shredder and Darkfang Creeper on your way**

5. Search for Mottled Drywallow Crocolisks. Whenever you see a bunch of them together, right-click your Captured Totem from your inventory. Now make sure that whenever you kill a croc, the totem is close and up or you won’t get a quest update.

There is a particular problem for hunters and warlocks for this quest. You must be tanking the crocs when they die so you get a quest update. For warlocks this is less of a problem, just summon an imp and tank yourself while dotting. But for hunters it’s a little different especially if you are beastmastery specced and don’t have your weaponskill maxed. In that case, do the following:

Place your totem and stand next to it with your pet. Put your pet on: passive, stay and growl off. Pull a crocodile with distracting shot from as far as possible and try to hit it with as many shots as possible before it reaches you. Once it’s next to the totem and once you are meleeing it, sick your pet on it. Normally your pet shouldn’t take aggro and until the croc is dead. If it does get aggro though, just turn the pet’s attack off (click on the passive icon), move away a good distance, get aggro with distracting shot and finish it off either meleeing or with shots. You must have aggro first though.

1. When you are done move east towards (53,57). On the way you should find a few Noxious Shredders (kill as many as you still need). When you are there, talk to Moxie Steelgrille and turn in [40] The Zeppelin Crash. Take both [40] Corrosion Prevention and [39] Secure the Cargo! from her.

You’ve probably already noticed that blue lightning rays are being shot at you. Open your inventory and search for Ooze Buster. Put it on a hotkey. This is used to dissolve oozes all around the crashed zeppelin wreck. You can only use the buster while you are energized by the blue rays though (which are being shot by power core fragments). The power core fragment next to Moxie always shoots energy at you so stay as much around that fragment as possible and pull oozes to it. Once they are close, use your Ooze buster on them. This will dissolve the oozes and you’ll get a quest update. You need to do this 10 times.
At the same time loot 8 Zeppelin Cargos in little boxes all around the floor. If you run out of oozes/boxes next to Moxie, just go to the other power core fragments around the crashed zeppelin. The only disadvantage with those is that they turn off and stop to shoot energy every 30 secs for 30 secs. So if your fragment isn’t shooting energy at you, wait a little until it switches on again, then dissolve your oozes. When done, return to Moxie and turn in both quests. Take the follow up [39] Delivery for Drazzit.

2. East of you should be some mountains. Follow those mountains north/northwest until you reach a tauren camp called Direhorn Post. Kill 12 Grimtotems here (any). While killing them you’ll stumble on an undead npc called Apothecary Cylla. Kill her and loot “Sealed Letter“.
Right click it for a quest.

At the same time you need to use the torch from your inventory to burn the following three tents:

North Tent: (46,45)
Northeast Tent: (47,46)
East Tent: (47,47)

3. When done, return to Tabetha’s house. Turn in everything you got and get the follow up from Tabetha, [39] Justice for the Hyals.

4. Hearthstone to Theramore. Turn in [39] Justice for the Hyals at Captain Garren Vimes (68,48). Take the follow up. Go to the graveyard just outside of Theramore and use the Wreath from your inventory on the grave at (63,42). Once done, return to Captain Garren Vimes and turn the quest in.

5. Fly to Mudsprocket. Turn in [39] Delivery for Drazzit. Gather all quests here:

  • [39] Bloodfen Feathers
  • [39] WANTED: Goreclaw the Ravenous
  • [40] Catch a Dragon by the Tail

==Note== You can abandon [40] … and Bugs, if you have the quest in your questlog.

1. Go northwest until you get to an area called The Bloodfen Burrow. Kill every raptor on your way while going west to the cave. There you should see a big named raptor Goreclaw the Revenous. Kill raptors in this area until you have 5 Bloodfen Feathers.

2. When you are done, go south of Mudsprocket and loot 8 Wyrmtails. They look like this:

3. Go back to Mudsprocket and turn in all your quests. Get the two follow ups [39] Banner of the Stonemaul and [39] The Essence of Enmity.

4. Ride northwest to the area named The Den of Flame, which you can enter by the main gate on the southeastern side of it at (40,67). From now on kill every dragonkin you see. After killing a Firemane Scout, Ash Tail or Scalebane, use your Brogg’s Totem from your inventory on their corpses to get a Black Dragonkin Essence. You’ll need to do this 10 times.

Go inside the cave and keep to the left side until you see a banner with a tiger pelt. Loot the Stonemaul Banner.

5. When you are done and when you aren’t more than 8200 EXP away from leveling, return to Mudsprocket. Turn in both quests and get the follow up. Congratulations on level 41.

Level 41

6. Go northeast to Stonemaul Ruins (43,66). Look for Ogre Remains:

Right-click them and Stonemaul Spirits will spawn which you need to kill. You’ll need to free 10 spirits like this.

7. When you are done, return to Mudsprocket and turn the quest in, get the follow up.

8. Go southeast to the area called Wyrmbog. Further southeast towards the mountain you’ll see the entrance to Onyxia’s Lair. Pick one side of the entrance and clear all around it, then plant the Stonemaul Banner from your inventory. After a few seconds a dragon called Smolderwing will spawn. Kill it. Return to Mudsprocket. Turn in at Brogg and fly to Theramore. From there take the boat to Menethil Harbor and fly to Ironforge.

Set your hearthstone in Ironforge.

Get the Patterned Bronze Bracers, the Frost Oil and the Gyrocronatom from your bank (or buy them now if you didn’t yet). I suggest you buy 4 stacks of food/drink at least before leaving.

Go to the Hall of Explorers and get the quest [37] Ironband wants you! from Prospector Stormpike.

From Ironforge, fly to Thelsamar, if you don’t have the flight path, run out of Ironforge, follow the road east and take the tunnel at the South Gate Outpost (86,51) You will be in Loch Modan then, follow the road northeast to Thelsamar.

In Thelsamar get the quest [39] Badlands Reagent Run from Ghak Healtouch in the alchemy supplies house. Then go southeast to Ironband’s Excavation Site (65,65). Get the follow up quest from Prospector Ironband, [38] Find Agmond. Then go southwest to Badlands.

==Note== In Badlands kill any Buzzard or Coyote you find on your way.

1. Go south, past Hammertoe’s Dig Site, until you find Prospector Ryedol and Sigrun Ironhew (53,43). Get the quests:

  • [35] A Dwarf and His Tools
  • [38] Mirages

2. Go southwest and find Martek the Exiled (42,52)
Turn in the quest [35] Martek the Exiled and get follow up [39] Indurium. Also get quest [40] Barbecued Buzzard Wings from Rigglefuzz.

==Note== Whenever you need to sell or repair, go to this spot. There is a goblin smithing supplier and it’s the only vendor and repairer in Badlands.

3. Then go west and a bit to the north until you find Lotwil Veriatus’s Camp (25,44). Get the quest [37] Study of the Elements: Rock.

Get [37] Coolant Heads Prevail, turn it in, get the follow up [37]Gyro…What? and turn it in.

4. Just west of Lotwil Veriatus you will find a lot of Lesser Elementals. Stay at this spot until you get 10 Small Stone Shard. Go turn in [37] Study of the Elements: Rock at Lotwil Veriatus and get the follow up.

5. Go east and a bit to the north to Hammertoe’s Digsite.

Kill Dark Dwarves until you get Ryedol’s Lucky Pick.

6. Then go northeast to Camp Kosh where you can find the Supply Crate (67,22).

1. When you got the crate, go back to Prospector Ryedol south of Hammertoe’s Digsite and turn in the quests.
Get the follow up [39] Scrounging from Sigrun Ironhew, don’t get the other quests.

2. Go south to Agmond’s End and find a Battered Dwarven Skeleton (50,62), click it and complete the quest and get the follow up [42] Murdaloc.

Kill 12 Stonevault Bonesnapper and Murdaloc, you can find him inside the camp next to the Dwarven Corpse. Keep killing those Troggs until you get 10 Indurium Flakes as well.

3. Once both quests are complete go south into the mountains and kill Rock Elementals at (40,73) until you get 3 Large Stone Slabs.

4. Go west to the ogre area named Camp Cagg (10,72), kill ogres there until you get 7 Scrap Metal. This may take a while. (If you grind here for more that 15 minutes without finishing the quest, just abandon it, it has no follow ups)

5. Go north to Apocryphan’s Rest (16,60) and kill Buzzards / Coyotes until complete [40] Barbecued Buzzard Wings and [39] Badlands Reagent Run.

6. When that is done, go east/northeast to Martek the Exiled (42,52) and turn in [39] Indurium and get the follow up [38] News for Fizzle. Turn in [40] Barbecued Buzzard Wings at Rigglefuzz as well. Repair and sell junk while you are here.

7. Go northeast and turn in [40] Scrounging at Sirun Ironhew.

8. After that go west to Lotwil Veriatus and turn in the quest, get the follow up [42] Study of the Elements: Rock.

You should be level 42 by now, if you aren’t grind on coyotes and lesser rock elementals until you ding.

Level 42

When ready to go, fly to Thelsamar, turn in [39] Badlands reagent run. Go to Prospector Ironband (65,65) and turn in [42] Murdaloc. Then go back to the Badlands.

1. Go to the southwestern part of the map (17, 83) and kill Greater Rock Elementals until you get 5 Bracers of Rock Binding. There’s another camp of Greater Rock Elementals further to the west past the Ogres (6,83).
This will be hard because some of the elementals are level 44. Try to find level 42 or 43 ones if the level 44 are too hard for you.

2. Go to Lotwil Veriatus, turn in [42] Study of the Elements: Rock and get the follow up [42] This is Going to Be Hard. Then go talk to his assistant Lucien Tosselwrench. Get quest [42] Stone is Better than Cloth and complete it, as you should still have the patterned bracers.

Complete [42] This is going to be hard and get the follow up. Talk to Lotwil and complete the quest but BEFORE you accept the next step away from Lotwil, be warned: A level 45 Elemental will spawn and you will have to defeat it. At level 42 this is hard but possible for every class. Just use every long cooldown ability you have. Loot “Lotwil’s Shackles of Elemental Binding” from the Fam’retor Elemental and go turn in the quest to Lotwil.

==Note== For the instance fans, now would be a great time to do Uldaman. If you do Uldaman, try to get to the very end of it and make sure you get the quest [47] The Platinum Discs in the treasure chamber.

  • [39] “Pretty Boy” Duncan
  • [41] Raptor Mastery
  • [41] Scaring Shaky
  • [41] Venture Company Mining

Make space in your bags, repair and buy 2 stacks of food/drink (if you don’t have that already, of course).

For those who didn’t finish the Stranglethorn Pages yet: This is your last chance, check the Booty Bay AH and ask in general channel for missing pages. If you got them all, take them with you.

1. Run out of Booty Bay and take the first way left until the Bloodsail Encampment by the shore. Pretty Boy Duncan should be there (28,69). if not, keep clearing the camp until he appears. Kill Pretty Boy Duncan and loot Catelyn’s Blade from him. While you have the camp cleared, look for a map named “Bloodsail Correspondence” on one of the barrels, click it and get the follow up quest.

2. Go northwest across the bridge and keep going along the shore until you find some Nagas. Kill Naga Explorers at (24,65) until you get 10 Akiris Reed.

3. Then go back to the exit of Booty Bay but this time follow the trail to the north. A bit further on the right hand side of the road you will find Elder Mistvale Gorillas (31,67). Kill Gorillas there until you get 5 Mistvale Giblets and 1 Gorilla Fang.

4. Go north to (35,61) where you’ll find a cave with Witch Doctor Unbagwa. Once you speak to him, 3 waves of 1 gorilla will spawn, with 10 seconds in between. You have time to eat/drink between the waves, don’t loot though, you can do that afterwards. So after about 10 seconds an Enraged Silverback Gorilla (level 43) will attack you. After killing that gorilla you have another 10 seconds until Konda spawns (also level 43). Kill him as well. Then after another 10 seconds Mokk the Savage will run into the cave (Level 44). Kill him and loot the Heart of Mokk.

5. Run back to Booty Bay.

  • Turn in and get the follow up [43] The Bloodsail Buccaneers from Fleet Master Seahorn on the 2nd Floor of the Inn.

Get the quest [38] Excelsior from Drizzlik at the leatherworking hut (top floor).

Finally get the quest [42] Keep an Eye out from Dizzy One-Eye who stands to the right of the Booty Bay blacksmith house. (Left when entering Booty Bay from the tunnel).

Repair, sell and restock food/drink up to 3 stacks.

1. Get out of Booty Bay and go east towards the shore named Wild Shore. From there, go southwards while killing any Bloodsails on the way until you reach the 1st camp (29,80). Clear the camp and look for a map thingy named “Bloodsail Charts” or “Bloodsail Orders”, If you don’t find either, move on further south until you find a small boat ashore, check it for maps as well. Careful, the Bloodsail Warlocks really hurt, make sure you interrupt their shadowbolts if you can, and kill them fast then deal with their pets. If you are Rogue or Mage though, I suggest sap / polymorph on the warlock first, kill the pet and then the warlock.

2. Now go further south until you find a bigger camp (27,82). This camp will be harder to clear, but it’s possible if you do it carefully.
Check the camp for Bloodsail Orders or Charts. Basically, the Bloodsail Charts and Orders can spawn at any of the two camps or at the boat. So check all three until you got both.

Then wander up and down the shore where you came from and kill Bloodsails until you get :

  • 10 Bloodsail Swashbuckler Kills
  • 15 Snuff (can drop from any Bloodsail)
  • 1 Dizzy’s Eye (can drop from any Bloodsail)

3. Get back on the road and ride north until you reach the Ruins of Jubuwal (33,51). Clear the camp until you can pull JonJon The Crow, he should come with an add, could be a hard fight but it’s doable. Loot Jon-Jon’s Golden Spyglass, then clear yourself some space around the little ruins just behind where Jon-Jon was, there stands Maury ‘Club-Foot” Wilkins with two Zanzil Something.

Now you probably can’t take all 3 at the same time, so try to kill one of the minions fast then run away, rinse and repeat until you are left with just Maury Wilkins. Kill him and loot “Maury’s Clubbed Foot”.

4. Go back on the road and just a bit south until (33,53), go east through a breached wall and keep going until you hit the Ruins of Aboraz (40,57) and kill Zanzil Minions there until you find
Chucky “Ten Thumbs” inside the ruins and loot “Chucky’s Huge Ring” from him. Keep killing Zanzil dudes until you get 12 Zanzil’s Mixtures, avoid Zanzil the Outcast himself though. If you run out of mobs to kill, go back and forth from this camp to the other. Any Zanzil Something can drop the Mixture.

You should be level 43 by now.

Level 43

5. When done with both [44] Voodoo Dues and [44] Zanzil’s Secret, get back on the road and ride north until you reach (39,41).

** From this point on, if you find any Shadowmaw Panther (they are stealthed) make sure you kill them **

At (39,41) go east and you will find Venture Co. Goblins uphill. Kill them until you get 10 Singing Blue Crystals.

6. Go west to the other side of the road, you should find Jungle Stalkers (34,37). Kill 10.

7. Then go northeast to (36,35) and kill Shadowmaw Panthers until you got 10 kills. You can find them in the area all around that big hill next to the tribal leatherworking troll NPC. They can be a bit hard to find sometimes because they are stealthers so I suggest you hit “Tab” key while running around and open your eyes well (humans use your racial ability perception). Keep doing circles around that big hill and you will find 10 panthers quickly.

1. Once you’re done get back on the main road and go north until you get to the Venture Co. Base at Lake Nezferiti, go to the Operations Center which looks like an oil rig platform (42,18 ). Go on top of it and kill Foreman Cozzle, loot his Key.
Jump down and go to the small house next to the lumber mill, open the chest and get the Fuel Regulator Blueprints.

2. Now go west across the lake and keep going west until the Bal’lal Ruins (29,20), clear the camp and click the big tablet named “Moon Over the Vale” and loot the scroll.

3. Go west till you hit the coast. You must find an Elder Saltwater Crocolisk. If you don’t see one, just clear the coast while going northwest, until an elder croc spawns. Loot the Elder Crocolisk Skin.

4. Go west into the sea, until (24,22). Dive underwater at this spot and you should find the tablet named “Gri’lek the Wanderer” lying against the outer wall of the underwater ruins. You don’t need to kill any of the murlocs there, the tablet can be accessed safely. Loot the 2nd scroll.

5. Then go north to the Zuuldaia Ruins and take the western entrance ( 21,10) to the Ruins of Zul’Kunda. Clear the way through the first corridor until you reach a fork, go left up the ramp. From there, face north and you should see the 3rd tablet “The Emperor’s Tomb”. Clear the way to it and loot the 3rd Scroll. Then go back to the fork and this time take the ramp up to the right, then take a u-turn to the right and go west until the last ruin (23,11). The last tablet named “Fall of Gurubashi” is inside there. Loot the 4th Scroll and then go back on the main path to the east and clear the way eastwards and out of Zul’Kunda ruins.

6. Keep going east to Camp Nesingwary (35,10).

Turn in:

  • [38] Panther Mastery., get the follow up.
  • [41] Raptor Mastery, get the follow up.
  • and the pages quest if you didn’t do that already before.

7. Then ride north to the Rebel Camp, turn in [38] Kurzen’s Mystery, get the follow up [40] Troll Witchery.
Also get the quest [40] Colonel Kurzen if you don’t already have it.

Fly to Booty Bay, turn in:

  • [44] Voodoo Dues, wait 10 seconds, then get the follow up [44] Cracking Maury’s Foot
  • [41] Venture Company Mining and [44] Zanzil’s Secret at Crank Fizzlebub in the Booty Bay inn.
  • [42] Up to Snuff at Deeg on the 2nd Floor of the inn.
  • [37] Goblin Sponsorship at Baron Revilgaz, 2nd Floor of the inn. Get the follow up.
  • [42] The Bloodsail Buccaneers at Fleet Master Seahorn, 2nd Floor of the inn, get the follow up.
    [38] Excelsior, at Drizzlik in the leatherworking hut (top floor).
  • [42] Keep an Eye out at Dizzy One-Eye to the right of the Blacksmith house.

This should make you ding level 44

Level 44

Sell junk, repair and re-stock food/drink. Put the Fuel-Regulator Blueprints in the bank.
If you wish, you can fly to Stormwind and go train your new skills, then hearthstone back to Booty Bay.

1. Get out of Booty Bay and ride east to the shore. Now we’re going to look for a Half-Burried Bottle, which can be found anywhere along the beach if you keep going northeast. Keep opening bottles until one yields a Carefully Folded Note, right-click it to start [42] Message in a Bottle.

2. Swim southeast to Jaguero Isle and find Princess Poobah at (39,81). Turn in the quest and get the follow up [42] Message in a Bottle.

3. Go to the southeastern part of the island, where you should find a big gorilla named King Mukla (40,84). Kill it and loot the Shackle Key.

Go back to Princess Poobah and turn in [42] Message in a Bottle.

Go to the southwestern tip of the island and swim southwest to a lone pirate ship (34,88)

You should see 2 other pirate ships if you look west:

Let’s start with the lone ship.

Instead of describing step by step how everything is done, I made a video, with explanations inside (the video was made before patch v2.3 but it’s still more or less the same, beside that there are less mobs and they are lower level):

Bloodsail Buccaneer Video

Note: The parchment I looted at the bottom of the ship – Cortello’s Riddle – can spawn in any of the three ships, so you’ll have to check the bottom floor of each ship until you find it. It can also spawn in other parts of the ship, so check every corner of each ship carefully, but it mostly spawns on the bottom floor.

When you pull the middle floor, don’t fight in the stairs. As soon as you aggro something, get off the stairs, or you might aggro something from the captain’s cabin through the floor, it’s an annoying bug but it’s easily avoided if you don’t fight on the stairs.

5. Do the same for the other two ships and you should have [42]The Bloodsail Buccaneers complete and have Cortello’s Riddle. Right click it and get the quest [43]Cortello’s Riddle.
Note: Ignore Brutus, that iron golem standing at the top of the eastern ship. He doesn’t drop anything particular and is a pain to kill.

6. Swim back to the mainland, get back on the road and ride north. Right before Gurubashi Arena, turn left, follow the little path west/northwest until you hit the shore, then go north until you find a named raptor, Tethis (29,43). Kill it.

1. Go north through the raptors and then northeast to Ziata’Jai Ruins (42,36) and clear the camp of trolls. Be careful to avoid the patrols. When it’s cleared, follow the little path northeast until you reach Balia’mah Ruins (45,33). Kill all the trolls there as well. When this camp is clear, follow the path southeast and then south until you reach the ruins of Zul’Mamwe (47,38 ) and kill all the trolls you find in the ruins (Though avoid the southernmost one up the plateau, the trolls there are higher level)
If you run out of trolls go back to the first ruins of Ziata’Jai and repeat this cycle until you get 18 Skullsplitter Tusk and 4 Skullsplitter Fetish. The fetishes can only drop from Skullsplitter Mystics and Witch Doctors.

2. Go northeast towards Zul’Gurub. Just south of the path leading to Zul’Gurub (49,20), look for a panther called Bhag’thera, kill her and loot the Fang of Bhag’thera.

3. Go north/northwest to the Kurzen Cave at (46,. Mobs in there should be grey to you, so try to avoid as many as possible. Inside the cave stick to the right and at some point you’ll start to encounter Kurzen Elites and Kurzen Subchiefs, which you must kill.
==Warning for melee classes== Subchiefs have an ability called Violent Shield, when they cast it, stop attacking or you’ll get hurt. Just wait till it stops.
Keep sticking to the right and you’ll find Colonel Kurzen at the end of the cave, he has one Kurzen Subchief as guard, you’ll have to take them both at the same time, just use your cooldowns if necessary.
Clear the way out of the cave while killing what you need for [40] Colonel Kurzen.

4. Ride west/northwes to the rebel camp, turn in [40] Troll Witchery and [40] Colonel Kurzen, get the follow up [46] Mai’Zoth.

5. Go southwest to Nesingwary’s Expedition, turn in [43] Raptor Mastery and [40] Panther Mastery, get the follow up [43] Big Game Hunter.

Sell junk.

6. Go southeast to the Mosh’ogg Ogre Mound (49,28). Clear the way till the end of the cave, where you should find Mai’Zoth. This won’t be an easy fight, because Mai’Zoth is guarded by two other ogres. My advice is to burn Mai’Zoth, use everything you got, and interrupt his spells because he hurts the most, by far. Use a health potion if needed, then finish the other two ogres. Loot the Mind’s Eye.
Now stay in this area and kill ogres until one of them drops Maury’s Key. If you already got it, just go to the next step.

7. Optional. We’re going to kill King Bangalash. Some classes can’t solo it and will have to find help, 2 people of any class mix should do. If you want to do this quest, head to (38,34) at the top of the hill. Clear any tigress or panthers around, you don’t want them to add while you’re fighting King Bangalash. When he’s at 50% health, he summons to panthers to his help, so watch out for that. My advice is to just burn Bangalash and ignore the panthers (or CC them).
Loot the Head of King Bangalash.

Hearthstone to Booty Bay.

Go to the top floor of the inn, turn in [42] Skullsplitter Tusks and [42] The Bloodsail Buccaneers.

2. Go north to the Misty Valley (13,35). Kill Swampwalkers, Swampwalker Elders and Tangled Horrors until you complete [41] Mazen’s Behest. The drop rate on the Essays you need is pretty low, so be patient, you might have to kill a lot of those elementals if you’re unlucky.

3. Go east to the Harborage (26,31), get the quest [43] Pool of Tears.

4. Find and kill Noboru the Cudgel.

You can see his route on the picture below, it’s quite accurate, just follow it and you’ll find him. Kill him and loot Noboru’s Cudgel, right-click it to start [39] Noboru The Cudgel.

5. Ride southeast to the Pool of Tears (65,45), swim down in the pool and look for Atal’ai Artifacts, gather 10 of them. A full turn around the pool should be enough. You should also get a message for [43] In Search of The Temple while swimming around in this pool.

6. Ride northwest to the Harborage, turn in [43] The Pool of Tears and [39] Noboru the Cudgel, this should make you ding level 45.

Once in Auberdine, get the flight path from the Hippogryph Master, then take the boat back to Stormwind.

Take the Deeprun Tram to Ironforge.

==Note== If you are leveling First Aid (most classes should), now would be the perfect time to raise it to 225 and take the quest [45] Alliance Trauma from the first aid trainer in Ironforge, who is inside a house close to the gryphon master.

Fly to Menethil Harbor, go to the southern pier and take the boat to Theramore.

In Theramore on the docks turn in the quest [43] Akiris by the Bundle at Privateer Groy. Talk to the Gryphon Master if you don’t have this flight path for whatever reason.

General info about Tanaris, Feralas and Hinterlands:

While killing stuff in Tanaris if you find an item named [OOX-17/TN Distress Beacon]. Right click it and keep the quest. You’ll find beacons in Feralas and Hinterlands as well, proceed equally with those. Each of those beacons start a quest where you will have to find a Homing Robot and escort it. The beacons won’t always drop for you, they are kinda rare. The escort quests are hard to do solo especially for certain classes. But if you are lucky to find all 3 beacons you should really put the effort and finish all 3 rescue quests, it will be described when to do them in the guide later on. Anyway, if you don’t get a distress beacon, or if you don’t manage to complete the rescue quests, it’s not a big deal, this is optional, it’s a nifty exp bonus but it’s not that important

Sell, Repair, re-supply food/drink (3 stacks).

Start his quest, follow him, he will set up an explosive and distract Rizzle Brassbolt out of his house. While Rizzle is away go quickly loot the Unguarded Plans. Complete the quest, get the follow up [41] Rizzle’s Schematics and turn it in at Pozzik. You can destroy the Sample of Indurium Ore from your bags.

Hearthstone if it’s up, or ride back to Gadgetzan and fly to Thalanaar (Feralas). You should have this flight path if you followed the previous chapter.

1. In Feralas, ride west, follow the road, but carefully avoid Camp Mojache (by the north) or the guards will make a quick deal of you. Find the Grimtotem Camp at (65,47), then locate Kindal Moonweaver at (65,45), she is on the mountain overlooking the Grimtotem camp. There is a path going to her just a little west of the grimtotem camp (65.6,47).

Once you know where Kindal is, don’t take the quest yet, go back to the Grimtotem Camp and clear the area around the bamboo cage with the Sprite Darters in it, and don’t be shy, clear a wide radius around it.

When you feel that you’ve cleared enough, go quickly to Kindal and start the quest, jump down and run straight to the bamboo cage, open the cage and escort the sprites out, at least 6 of them must survive. Once you get the “6 Sprites escaped (Complete)” message, help Kindal finish off whatever she is attacking. When Kindal is not being attacked by anything, she will vanish, go find her at her initial spot, turn in the quest. If you and/or Kindal die after getting the “quest complete” message, just run back fast to where you initially found Kindal and turn in the quest before the end of the 6 min countdown.

Now Jer’Kai Moonweaver (that elf right next to Kindal) will have a quest for you,[47] Doling Justice. Take the quest, go back down to the Grimtotem Camp and kill as much as the quest requires you to. When done, go back to her and get the follow up [47] Doling Justice.

Inside the cave, go straight ahead and under a small white arch. Lord Shalzaru is up there on the other side of the pond. Kill Lord Shazaru, there are 2 other nagas close to him but you can pull them one by one or just 2 at a time. Use your long cooldown abilities and potions if needed. Loot the Mysterious Relic from him.

4. Cross a small river, then keep going south until you find a Wrecked Row Boat at (45,65), it’s underwater but very close to the shore, you can see the yellow “?” on your minimap anyway. There will probably be an elemental or two around it that will aggro if you get close, you can try killing them (but some of them are 49) or you can run in, click the quest, get the follow up and run away. (What I did )

Now, at this point you should normally have gotten a Distress Beacon with all the stuff you’ve killed in Feralas already. If you don’t, it’s not a big deal, just go to the next step. For those you did get a Distress Beacon, right click it to get the quest [45] Find OOX-22/FE! if you haven’t already. Turn in the quest.

Don’t take the escort quest if you are solo, it’s too hard for almost every class. If you are two or more, read the following warnings before taking the escort quest:

  • 1st Warning: The Chicken robot is stupid and doesn’t assist you all the time if you get attacked. Let him in the front so he gets the first hit. He has a decent amount of HPs and heals back to full after each fight is over. You can even eat/drink a bit after a fight and let the chicken walk in the front (not too far away though). Don’t even think about looting, you don’t have time. Don’t let the chicken tank more than one at a time, and don’t let him tank too long either.
  • 2nd Warning: When out of the Yeti cave, the chicken will take a left turn and go towards the road, at some point 3 yetis will ambush him. Don’t panic, you can let one of the yetis be tanked by the chicken at the beginning and deal with the other 2. Just check the chicken’s health regularly. There will be a 2nd and a 3rd ambush, be prepared for them. Especially the last one is composed of 4 Gnolls.

5. Get back on the main road and follow it east until (71,48). You should be directly north of a small lake. Go to the southeastern tip of that lake and a bit more to the south try to locate a small gnoll camp next to a huge tree. (73,56). Clear the camp and look for “Large Leather Backpacks” hanging at the trunk of that huge tree. Click it and get the follow up quest [46] The Writhing Deep.

Also check your inventory for a bag named “Undelivered Parcel”, click it and start the quest [44] Thalanaar Delivery.

6. Go further south to the Writhing Deep and find the hole at (74,63), go down the spiralling ramp until you reach the bottom. There enter the tunnel towards the west, inside the tunnel at the first fork go to the right. At the end of this corridor you’ll find a circular room with the Zukk’Ash Pod inside. Clear the insects in the room. (if you are lucky, “Qirot”, a rare spawn insect will be there. Kill it for and extra green item). When the room is clear, click the Zukk’Ash Pod, complete the quest, and after Raschal the Courier is done with his speech, warp back to Feathermoon Stronghold.

Turn in all quests and get the following quests:

Go to Shandris Feathermoon, turn in [46] A Hero’s Welcome and get the follow up [46] Rise of the Slithid.

Fly to Auberdine (Darkshore), takes about 7 minutes. Or just fly directly to Rut’theran Village if you got the flight path.

Inside Darnassus, go to the Temple of the Moon.

Turn in [46] Rise of the Silithid there and [47] Doling Justice. This should make you ding level 47.

Level 47

While you are in Darnassus, go to your class trainer (if you are Shaman, Paladin, or Warlock you will have to go to Auberdine and take the boat to Stormwind. Mages can just go learn the Portal to Darnassus and warp to a big city to train).

Visit the Auction House, sell and repair.

Then go back to Feathermoon Stronghold (Use Hearthstone if it is up — If it’s not up, there is a Hippogryph Master in Rut’theran Village, fly to Auberdine, then fly to Feathermoon.)

1. In Tanaris ride to the southeast until you reach Waterspring Field (63,37).
You will find numerous Wastewander camps there. Kill Wastewander Rogues (stealthers), Assassins and Shadow Mages. You can also find Caliph Scorpidsting, he wanders between the tower structures, so you should go kill from a tower structure to another until you find him. He has 2 stealthed bodyguards, it will be a hard fight, burn him down quick and run away is my advice, use long cooldown abilities and potions if needed. Then go back and loot his head.

If you don’t find Caliph it’s not a problem though, it’s just some bonus XP quest, not too important.

2. Once you got [44] More Wastewander Justice completed, go east towards Lost Rigger Cove. You’ll find a cave entrance at (68,41). Go through this tunnel.

Now you have a lot of work to do, check the kill list of [45] Southsea Shakedown and start killing Pirates!
Clear your way south toward the main camp with the 3 houses , 2 ships ashore and the boat under construction.

Andre Firebeard spawns at the campfire right in the center of the camp. He has 3 Dock Workers close to him but you can pull those 3 without him if you pull the back one, then you have Andre solo. Or you can burn him down fast and run away (or take them all :p^^). Anyway, this place is usually crowded because it is a good grinding spot, so you shouldn’t have trouble getting help to kill Andre Firebeard if needed.

Then go inside the first house to the right when entering the camp. You might get pulls of 3 at a time inside the house, you will maybe have to use the “Kill one and run away” tactic to get to the top floor of the house if you can’t take 3 at a time.. On the top floor are crates, click them to get Stoley’s Shipment.

Then keep on killing pirates until you complete Southsea Shakedown and Pirate Hats Ahoy!

Bonus: There is a rare spawn named Kregg Keelhaul on the boats ashore. Check for it.

If you find a Captain’s Key off one of the pirates, the chest is at the bottom level of the ship which is the most to the east. Another thing, while killing pirates by the dozen you might find a pirate footlocker on one of them (1% chance to drop approximately). In the footlocker you might find a note named “Ship Schedule”, right click it to start the quest [45] Ship Schedules, which you turn in in Steamwheedle Port for an extra 4850 XP. However, you might be unlucky and never get a footlocker, so don’t worry if you miss it, it’s optional.

3. When done, get out of Rigger Cove and go north to Steamwheedle Port.

1. Go south to Featherbeard’s Hovel (13,54), inside the house you’ll find a book, right-click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [46] In Pursuit of Featherbeard.

**While in the Hinterlands look for Wilkdkin Feathers, they are big white/brown feathers you can find on the ground throughout Hinterlands. They don’t drop off the Owlbeasts. I found most of them in between Aerie Peak and Quel’Danil Lodge. Start gathering them from now on while doing the quest circuit**
**Also kill Mangy Silvermane and Silvermane Wolves on your way**

3. Optional: If you got the Distress Beacon OOX-09/HL, go to the lake northwest of Skulk Rock and find the Homing robot there (49,37). Turn in the quest. Before you accept the rescue quest, here is what you must know:

  • This quest, unlike the Feralas one, is more likely to be done solo. It’s still not a walk in the part of course. So if you got a partner to duo it, all the better for you.
  • Let the chicken run in front of you, let it get the first hit. If it’s not getting hit, it won’t fight back. Sometimes mobs are actually chasing the chicken and failing to get a hit on it, so they give up.
  • You’ll have to face 2 ambushes of 3 mobs each, make sure you are full health/mana and with long cooldown abilities up when you start the escort. When the 3 ambushers attack, stand back until the chicken gets hit. Then let the chicken tank one of the 3 adds, deal with the 2 others as quick as you can, then help the chicken finish off the 3rd add.

If you don’t have the beacon, you can come back later when you get one. We’ll come back to the Hinterlands in a few levels anyway. Ride southeast until you reach The Overlook Cliffs (71,65), then go down the slope.

4. Search your bags for the Super Snapper FX and make a hotkey out of it. Then ride along the shore and search for a named turtle named Gammerita. She is easy to discern from the rest because she’s the only aggressive turtle (red name). She roams a lot, so you’ll find her anywhere between the waterfall (82,47) and Revantusk Village (77,77). She will attack you when you take her picture, you can kill her or run away, as you prefer. You should now normally have a Snapshot of Gammerita in your inventory.

5. Mount up and go north until you reach the waterfall named The Overlook Cliffs (79,48).
Dive in the water and look for Cortello’s Chest at the bottom of the sea, close to where the waterfall hits the bottom.

Click it and turn in the quest for 8800 xp and a 14-Slot bag.

Hearthstone back to Aerie Peak.

Turn in the quests:

  • [45] Troll Necklace Bounty
  • [48] Skulk Rock Clean-up
  • [46] A Gesture of Good Will
  • [46] Reclaiming this Eggs

Go to the top floor of Aerie Peak to Gryphon Master Talonaxe and get the follow up:

[48] The Altar of Zul

You can destroy Featherbeard’s Map from your inventory.

Sell, repair, buy up to 3 stacks food/drink.

==Note== From now on, kill on sight the following: Mangy Silvermanes and Silvermane Wolves as long as you still need them for [44] Preying on the Predators. Also gather as many Wildkin Feathers as you still need for [47] Favored of Elune?.

1. Go east/southeast to the Altar of Zul (49,64) and kill trolls / wolves there. On top of the temple of Zul you’ll find 2 level 50 mobs. Qiaga and Morta’gya.. Get full HP/mana, kill them both, try to interrupt their spells as much as possible and use your cooldowns/potions if needed.

Loot the “Sacred Mallet” from Qiaga. Then walk on top of the altar in the middle of it and you’ll get a quest update for [48] The Altar of Zul.

2. If you haven’t done the robot chicken escort quest yet but got the Distress Beacon OOX-09/HL, go to the lake northwest of Skulk Rock and find the Homing robot there (49,37) and do the escort.

If you still don’t have the Distress Beacon, well first of all you’re not lucky. If you can stomach it, go grind at some troll ruins (any will do) until you get the beacon, because it’s much more efficient to do this escort now (you’ll see later why). If you really don’t wanna grind, then forget it, we’ll get another chance to do this quest in a later circuit, it will just require one extra trip to Booty Bay at a later point.

3. Go back to Aerie Peak, turn in [44] Preying on the Predators.
Go to the top of Aerie Peak and speak with Gryphon Master Talonaxe. Turn in the quest and get the follow up:

[47] Thadius Grimshade

Keep Aerie Peak as your home location, we’ll hearthstone there in a couple of circuits.

Fly to Ironforge. Sell, repair, visit your class trainer, check the AH. you really have to buy the 2 Elixirs of Fortitude if you didn’t already (See shopping list).

==Note== If you want to do the Zul’Farrak instance, now would be a good time to do it. If you do the instance, make sure you do the following:

  • Before going to Zul’Farrak, fly to Nethergarde Keep (Blasted Lands), turn in [47] Thadius Grimshade, get the follow up [47] Nekrum’s Medaillon.
  • When inside Zul’Farrak, Kill Theka the Martyr (Loot 1st Tablet)
  • Do the Temple script (Loot Nekrum’s Medaillon)
  • Kill Hydromanther Velratha (Loot 2nd Tablet)

Take a portal to Darnassus or if you don’t find a mage, go to Stormwind Harbor, take the boat to Auberdine, then fly to Rut’Theran village.

In Rut’theran Village turn in the quest [47] Favored of Elune? at Erelas Ambersky (55,92).

In the same house on the 1st floor turn in [48] The Super Snapper FX. Get the follow up [48] Return to Troyas.

Fly to Gadgetzan. In Gadgetzan get:

  • [46] Gadgetzan Water Survey from Senior Surveyor Fizzledowser (he’s on a mound of earth behind the houses on the west side of Gadgetzan)
  • [49] The Thirsty Goblin from Maren Noggenfogger
  • [49] The Dunemaul Compound from Andi Lynn (behind the Inn)
  • [50] Thistleshrub Valley from Tran’Rek

1. Go west to the pool of water by the Sandsorrow Watch (38,29). Stand by the western tip of the pool and get full health/mana. Search your bag for a black vial named “Untapped Dowsing Widget” and right click it. Two level 48 insects will pop and attack you, kill them or run away from them. It doesn’t matter.

2. Go back to Gadgetzan. Talk to Senior Survery Fizzledowser and get the follow up [47] Noxious Lair Investigation.

Now we’ll do a long circuit, so repair and re-stock food/drink.

3. Get out of Gadgetzan and go south until you find the skeletal remains of some huge animal (50,35). Kill all the Fire Rocs you find there. The Hyenas actually share the same spawn points as the Fire Rocs, so if you run out of Fire Rocs, kill Hyenas until Fire Rocs spawn instead. There’s another of those huge skeletal remains to the southwest. Cycle between those 2 spots until you get the 3 Roc Gizzards you need for [43] Rhapsody’s Kalimdor Kocktail.

4. Go southeast to the area named “Broken Pillar(52,45) and talk to Marvon Rivetseeker. Turn in [51] The Sunken Temple and get the follow up [51] The Stone Circle. Also get [48] Gahz’ridian.

5. Go southwest to the Dunemaul Compound and clear a path to the cave there (40,56). In that cave you’ll find Gor’marok the Ravager, kill him. (lvl 49 – soloable at lvl 47 without a problem)

6. Go southeast to the Eastmoon Ruins (48,64) (yes, even if you didn’t finish [49] The Dunemaul Compound yet.) Start killing ogres there and look on the floor for Gahz’Ridian pieces. They look like white upside down plates. If it’s too crowded, there is another camp similar to this one further to the southwest named “Southmoon Ruin” (41,72). When you got 30 Gahz’Ridian ornament you should also be done with [49] The Dunemaul Compound. If not, kill some more ogres

7. Optional: If you went to Uldaman and did the quest [47] The Platinum Discs, go southwest to Uldum (38,79). The Dune Smashers have a small aggro range, you can hug the left wall and reach the Stone Watcher of Norgannon, just be careful of the one roamer. The Stone Watcher of Norgannon is at (37,81). Click the Uldum Pedestal under him and get the follow up, then talk to the Stone Watcher of Norgannon who just appeared on the pedestal. Go through his dialogue and you will complete the follow up. Then click the Uldum pedestal again, complete the quest and get the follow up [50] Return to Ironforge.

8. Go west (northwest if you went to Uldum) to Thistleshrub Valley (28,67). Kill Gnarled Thistleshrubs and Thistleshrub Rootshapers until you get 8 kills of each. Also kill Thistleshrub Dew Collectors until a Laden Dew Gland drops (rare drop).

This should easily make you ding level 49.

Level 49

9. Go north to the Noxious Lair (31,51). Kill Centipaars there, Stingers, Wasps, Tunnelers.. until you get 5 Centipaar Insect Parts.

10. Ride southwest to the slope going down to Ungoro Crater (27,57).

Red, Blue, Yellow and Green crystals. Loot them anytime you see them until you got 7 of each color.
Also kill every dinosaur you find on your way and normally you should find a Mangled Journal at some point (if you don’t you will later on in Ungoro, don’t worry). Right click the journal and get the quest [50] Williden’s Journal.

2. Go northwest until you find “A Wrecked Raft” at (63,68). Right click it and accept the quest [52] It’s a Secret to Everybody.

Take a dive right next to where the wrecked raft is and look underwater for yellow bag called “A Small Pack”. Click it, turn in and get the follow up. You should receive a small pack in your inventory but don’t open it for now, it will save you some bagspace.

3. Go northeast from here until (68,56), where you will find a big dinosaur carcass on the floor. Right click it to get the Piece of Threshadon Carcass.

4. Once you have your “Piece of Threshadon Carcass”, go back to Torwa Pathfinder, turn in the quest and get the follow up [53] The Scent of Lar’korwi.

5. Go west back into the Marshlands until you find some purple eggs on the floor (67,73). Clear the ravasaurs around it, then step up on the egg pile, a Lar’korwi mate should appear and attack you, kill her and loot the Ravasaur Pheromone Gland (75% drop rate).

6. Then go to the next pile of eggs north of this one (66,67), do the same thing. Go back and forth between these 2 egg piles until you got 2 Glands.

7. Go back to Torwa Pathfinder and turn in the quest, get the follow up [56] The Bait for Lar’korwi.

8. Go back to the Marshlands and kill Dinosaurs while looking for crystals until you got 7 Power Crystals of each color and found the Mangled Journal.

9. Ride north then northwest to Marshall’s Refuge (46,13).

Turn in [50] Williden’s Journal, don’t get the follow up.

Open the “small pack” in your inventory and loot all the items from it, then turn in [52] It’s a Secret to Everybody at Linken (he’s inside a tree trunk south of Williden Marshal), get the follow up. You can destroy the Faded Photograph from your inventory.

Go inside the cave at Marshall’s Refuge and go to the end of it where you’ll find a little gnome named J.D. Collie.

Get her quest [53] Crystals of Power and turn it in. Then get the 3 follow up quests she gives you:

2. Go further south to the Gaping Chasm (56,61), clear yourself a path through the insects southwards until you find the entrance spiralling down at (55,70). Take the 2nd tunnel you see when going down the spiral, the one going north (55,69). Inside the tunnel at the first fork go right. Then go through the circular room. After the circular room at the first fork go right. You will enter a big square room. The Scrimshank’s Surveying Gear (55,71) is at the western corner of the square room.

Loot it and then go back the way you came from, and then go north until you are out of the Gaping Chasm.

If you don’t have the Distress Beacon, go back to Gadgetzan.

3. If you do have the Distress Beacon for Tanaris:

Go east and inside the mountain at (60,64). You will find the Homing Robot OOX-17/TN there. Turn in the quest. Get full health/mana, refresh buffs. Check if your long cooldown abilities are up. For some classes this will be hard to solo, so if you don’t manage it better find someone to duo it with. If you don’t manage that, just abandon the escort quest, it’s optional anyway.

Things to know about this escort quest:

1. Let the chicken in front, let him get hit first. Sometimes mobs will aggro him but not manage to hit him while he walks and they will just give up.
2. The first part of the escort is the hardest as you will run into lvl 46-47 mobs. And at some point you will get an ambush of 3 level 46 scorpions. Use your long cooldown abilities there. After this, it gets easier.
3. Later on you will get a 2nd ambush, 3 humanoids lvl 42 (green). One will be a shadow mage though, kill it first.

==Note== For those who did Zul’Farrak, go to Steamwheedle Port, turn in [47] The Prophecy of Mosh’aru, get the follow up [50] The Ancient Egg. For the others, if you don’t plan to do Zul’Farrak, just abandon the quest [47] The Prophecy of Mosh’aru.

4. Ride back to Gadgetzan, talk to Senior Surveyor Fizzledowser and get the follow up [48] Insect Part Analysis.

Go talk to Alchemist Pestlezugg, get the follow up and get back to Surveyor Fizzledowser. Turn in the quest and get the follow up [49] Rise of the Slithid

Fly to Thalanaar, Feralas.

1. Mount up, ride west/northwest, carefully avoiding Camp Mojache. Keep going west until the grimtotem camp (66,46). Go talk to Kindal Moonweaver (those two elven females we already helped back then with freeing sprite darters). Get the quest [47] An Orphan Looking for a Home.

2. If you haven’t done the Feralas chicken escort quest, go west and back to the Yeti Cave (55,56) and try to escort the Homing Robot. At level 49 it shouldn’t be too hard to solo it. Anyway, one advice, just ALWAYS let the chicken get hit first before you do anything.
If you don’t manage to solo this quest or can’t find a person to duo it just abandon it. It’s really optional, but do try hard though, because the final exp reward is juicy.

3. Get back on the main road and ride north/northeast towards the Yeti Cave (51,32). On the way there also kill every Ironfur Bear and Groddoc Thunderer you find. You need 3 livers of each for [43] Rhapsody’s Kalimdor Kocktail.

4. Kill Rage Scar Yetis until you get 10 Rage Scar Yeti Hide.

5. When done with the above, get out and kill more Ironfur Bear and Groddoc Thunderer until you finish [43] Rhapsody’s Kalimdor Kocktail.

6. Ride to the pier and take the boat to Feathermoon Stronghold (or swim if you miss the boat ):

Turn in :

  • [48] Improved Quality
  • [48] Return to Troyas, don’t get the follow up.

Fly back to Gadgetzan. Get your 2 Elixirs of Fortitude from the bank in Gadgetzan. Then ride north to the Thousand Needles.

Go to the Mirage Raceway and talk to Quentin (78,74). Turn in the quest [47] An Orphan Looking for a Home. Get the follow up, turn it in instantly (as you already have the 2 Elixirs of Fortitude).
Get the quest [47] The Newest Member of the Family. A timer window will appear, we have plenty of time though, so just follow the next few steps carefully and don’t go AFK for too long

Ride back to Gadgetzan, fly to Ratchet. After landing, go directly south of the flight master to the yellow “!” labeled Liv Rizzlefix (62.5, 38). Don’t take the quest, but loot Marvon’s Chest, which is right outside of this hut. You’ll receive a Stone Circle.

Take the boat to Booty Bay. In Booty Bay take the left ramp going up, keep going east/southeast and shortly you’ll find Oglethorpe Obnoticus (28,76). Turn in all the Rescue OOX-Chicken Robot quests you completed. They give between 6900 XP and 7850 XP each.

If you completed all 3 rescues you get and extra quest [50] An OOX of your own. You’ll get a mechanical chicken pet (which I usually sell for 50gold at the AH ^^) and 10200 XP as well! Which is why going through the pain of doing those 3 escort quests is in the end worth it.

Turn in [45] Deliver to MacKinley at “Sea Wolf” MacKinley (close to the inn).

You should be level 50 by now.

Level 50

Fly to Darkshire (Duskwood). In Darkshire go talk to Watchmaster Sorigal (he’s just down the path from the gryphon master), get the quest [45] Supplies for Nethergarde.

  • Turn in [47] Nekrum’s Medaillon at Thadius Grimshade, he’s inside the big tower, on the highest floor. Get the follow up [47] The Divination. Turn it in, get the follow up [47] Return to the Hinterlands.

Hearthstone to Aerie Peak. Go talk to Agnar Beastamer, he is inside the inn on the lower level. Turn in [47] The Newest Member of the Family, get the follow up [47] Food for Baby.

If you did Zul’Farrak, go to Gryphon Master Talonaxe at the very top of Aerie Peak, turn in [47] Return to the Hinterlands, get the follow up [51] Saving Sharpbeak.

End of Chapter II.

      No Tooga’s Quest?This awards 5900 XP and a couple of nice rewards to choose from. Tooga will battle anything that attacks him, and will never run away even if the creature will probably stop attacking anyway.

      Tooga follows you directly, rather than taking a default route. If you take a direct route to Gadgetzan, you can then follow the path to Steamweedle Port. You can easily dodge the monsters, and Tooga will do the same. If monsters do try and attack, stop them before they reach you or Tooga and Tooga will carry on walking.

      Torta is along the coast a few steps south of Steamweedle Port. It surrounded by turtles/tortoises (they swim but have feet so I don’t know which!) that won’t attack you so don’t worry about them. There will be a small scene, before Tooga goes into the sea and fades away.

      The quest has a 30 minute timer, but can easily be completed with 20 minutes to spare.

      Good for people levelled 46-50. You can find Tooga wandering around just a little way south of Thistleshrub Valley.

      I really think this should be added while you’re at Thistleshrub Valley… It’s fun and easy and worthwhile.

              First aid leveling-lvl 45???OK, i’m lvl 47 warior. At the James alliance leveling guide – lvl 45:

              ==Note== If you are leveling First Aid (most classes should), now would be the perfect time to raise it to 225 and take the quest [45] Alliance Trauma from the first aid trainer in Ironforge, who is inside a house close to the gryphon master.

              Not working at all, i’m stuck at lvl 210 first aid, can’t get to lvl 225, + , can’t get the quest[45] Alliance Trauma. I goes to the guy in Theramore, he wont give me any quest to lvl upper then my lvl 210. So, i think this part don’t work.

              ***RamoroK***, just for u all XD

    [50] The Ancient Egg (Elite)Excellent quest guide. I’m now at 50. One thing though…for [50] The Ancient Egg (Elite) you don’t say to pick it up after turning in the ZF quest. No biggie, but its just more work to go back and pick it up. Maybe you can add something in the turnin section for ZF so people make sure to pick it up?

    Hmm, I’m trying this guideHmm, I’m trying this guide with a lvl 43 gnome warrior, and so far it has been fun to level.
    But now I’ve reach a point in this guide where I think there needs to be some changes.

    Under level 42 in the guide, nr 4, circuit 3 I’ve experienced some troubles.. As a 43 warrior this seems very impossible for me to go in to “Jon-Jon” and clearing the camp.
    I’ve tried now for 30-45 mins to get the camp cleared so I can pull Jon-Jon, but the mobs here seems to respawn very fast + they are extremly hard for me to kill.

    I think you need to be 2 or 3 levels higher than the guides advices (42).

    Has anyone else had some bad experience at this place ?

      Yes tanis, I agree. I amYes tanis, I agree. I am currently on the 50-60 guide, and I have trouble killing certain monsters. Like I am supposed to be killing a 47 monster, and I am dying multiple times. T_T. But this guide is in fact awesome!

        Août 28, 2006 @ 14:54

        I dont agree.. im lvl 52I dont agree.. im lvl 52 Rogue now.. (on the part 50-60) and till now it went smooth.. i can kill 48 elite solo and stuff.. i just did Instances instead of grinding.
        So i got good gear.

    • img
      Août 30, 2006 @ 3:22

      Don’t agree.I did that exact same part on a Night Elf warrior about 3 nights ago at level 43 in average gear. (sword of serenity and herod’s shoulder were my only blues, both from SM) The trick is to clear the area wisely before you make the big pull. Jon-jon does come solo, and the other two come solo as well, just a matter of forethought and patience.

      At the end of the day though, if you’re having trouble doing a part, try it again, but if it’s taking you 30-45 minutes to get a clean pull.. you really ought to think about..

      1, Skipping that quest and grinding to make up for it, getting killed over and over isn’t fast exp.

      2, Rerolling a different class? No, really. Warrior is a tricky class to play because once your health is gone, it’s gone. You’re going toe to toe with your opponents for the duration, so one mistake can cost you. Perhaps try a shadow priest, or a hunter, or a rogue, or warlock.. any of those classes could do that quest easily with no fuss.

        Quality guide 1 annoyance.On the whole this guide is excellent especially for a new player like myself. However i must say one thing. I am following this to the letter but unfortunately i cannot do the optional quests for completing The Platinum Discs in the Uldaman dungeon. I have completed that quest but not ALL of the others in the instance. This wouldnt annoy me except i have made my way to npc’s only to find out i cant even get the quests. This is especially annoying on the level 48 one where you get a cheeky 9k exp. Dammit.

        Other than that no complaints, oh yeh except for the points when it tells you to go the wrong direction on the compass but at least there is maps.

        And another thing lol… in the first chapter you detail how to kill an npc which has guards with every class except a druid!!

        Clearing that jon jon area wasnt a problem for a druid, but i did die running away after killing one of his guards. Np i just ran back and creamed the other 2.

        Nit picking really damn quality guide even if the time it takes jame is alot less than what it takes me >,<. Looking forward to doing it all again with my second character! ~just dinged 48 /rantoff

          Same ProblemWell, as eveyone else says,Jame, great guide. We can all level faster now. It works especially well for me because I group my chars with my husbands, and this way we both stay on track. However, I can’t get the quest beside Uldum either. I did the platinum discs in Uldaman, but there is nothing near the big doors of Uldum that I can use or click on at all. Just wonder if you know what’s up. Many thanks.

            I had that problem too. I never found out whether it was because I just didn’t follow the guide properly or whether it wasn’t in it. Basically you need to get some kind of followup from the Hall of Explorers in IF and then the discs at Uldum will be clickable.

        Warrior ClassI have to say that the guide is very well done, informative and a great time saving tool. However, the point about Warrior class is valid indeed. In certain situations they suck, big time. I am doing the Level 41 part of the guide with a lvl 43 warrior, reasonable equipment, but nothing special. All is fine, except when you have to take on more than one mob at a time. Im mainly thinking of mob Warlocks. The ones that are in the Bloodsail Buccaneers quest on the Wild Shore in STV are pretty much impossible for me to clear, i can pull and kill, but when you have two that wont pull, i just cant kill both the warlocks + minions (level 43 and 42) without the second one’s killing me. By the time i get to that point , the whole camp has respawned. The thing is, this is meant for a lvl 41 player. If i get uber equipment i might manage it, but even then it would be close. So, having tried it and died multiple times, im going to skip the quest. I could grind out more xp killing jungle animals than keep banging my head against a wall.
        It is very frustrating, i know i could do this with my Hunter or even my lock (who are both lower level than the warrior)
        Still, the guide is very worthwhile, but if you find a quest really hard to do, dont keep trying over and over because you think you should be able to do it. Different strokes for different folks.

      Easily completed with Shadow Priest.Great guide, this is the farthest I have taken a priest and I am loving it. I’ve done many of these quests before, I have a level 70 pally, but this was so nicely organized. I never realized how much time was wasted traveling, it really adds up fast. I had a friend leveling on his own without this guide, we were both level 43, in two days I was 47 and he was 45. I am now 49 and he is still 45. 😉

      If you haven’t rolled a shadow priest yet, do so. So much damage, so little health lost… 😉

        Just as a tip, if you areJust as a tip, if you are abit ahead of the guide and manage to ding 50 while doing the horribly drawn out quests in the Blasted Lands (where you need tons of boar lungs, vulture gizzards, basilik brains etc), or if you are back in Nethergarde Keep after dinging 50 for some reason, you will be able to pick up the first part of the Razelikh quest-chain from a blood-elf atop the mage tower. This only requires you to go talk to The Fallen Hero of the Hord outside the entrance to the Blasted Lands (in Swamps of Sorrows, the same guy who give you the class specific quest for Sunken Temple) and awards 4.5k xp. Not bad for one minute worth of travelling.

        Don’t expect to continue the quest-chain yet though, that requires you to kill mobs in the high fifties.

    Best guide ever!I started this guide with my lv45 paladin a couple days ago, and already I’m one bubble away from 47. This guide is just awesome, as I work full time and only have about 1 or 2 hours a day to play. This way I stop wasting my time wandering around trying to find quests or wondering which area to go to next! Can’t wait to get to 60! And can’t wait to follow the whole guide from lv30 with my new hunter who’s lv26 at the moment. Well done!!

    Just an update that I foundJust an update that I found while levelling my hunter up to 50: Since the last patch [40] A Meal Served Cold can no longer be abandoned without also destroying “Chilled Basilisk Haunch”. So, unfortunately, I was forced to simply give up this quest and not complete it, since I’d be required to follow the timer, which would be a big waste of time if I’m trying to follow this guide, which, by the way, still is an amazingly well written one.

    small mistake I noticedHey, I noticed a small mistake when I was playing the other day.

    In the level 47 section for Feralas it says:

    [quote]Get out of the yeti cave and go north until you can get back on the main road, then [b]northeast[/b] until you find a stone giant named Rockbiter. [/quote]

    Except it’s not northeast, it’s northwest! If you go northeast you run into lots of high level elites.

    Only I found a little guide, at point 7 at lvl 43 you say to get the quest [46] The Mark of Quality in feathermoon, only no-one gives the quest there, its at a camp in Feralas.

    only comment sofar, but following it still, thumbs up!

    Come ON already!!!While I find most of these guides a god send I can so tell they are not built with a priest in mind I always find a way around it.

    But this one part… Has me questioning if this is a quest you just like doing or you didn’t realise that most ppl can’t find their own way outta a wet paper sack.

    “Ride back to Gadgetzan and fly to Thalanaar (Feralas).
    In Feralas, ride west, follow the road, but carefully avoid Camp Mojache (by the north) or the guards will make a quick deal of you. Find the Grimtotem Camp at (65,47), then locate Kindal Moonweaver at (65,45), she is on the mountain overlooking the Grimtotem camp.”

    I’ve died 4 times just looking for the stoopid thing! I’ve not even gotit yet.

    It would be nice for these absurdly hidden items to perhaps have a screen print or something that shows you the best way to see them and find your way to them.

    Thanks a million for all your hard work tho!

      Kindal MoonweaverThe woman is a pain to find, but once you know where she is, it’s almost not worth mentioning 🙂 I could see how this’d be an oversight for most people.. I even spent about 5 minutes looking for her.

      However, as you are coming into the camp from the south/west, you will see 2 huge trees and some ‘guards’ per se, to indicate the start of the Grimtotem camp. You will be able to see the sprite darters trapped in a cage not far behind.

      Next to the tree on the left, or more to the point, behind it, is a path somewhat carved into the hillside, which leads up and over to the quest giver and her sidekick 🙂

      This is a great guide, btw .. Thanks 🙂

    Good guideI followed the alliance 30-40 guide, which was also great, but i’m enjoying the variety of this guide, how it seems to take in a change of scenery every few quests. It seems to also have less grinding than the prev guide which is great. A well written guide.

    Very niceYo Jame

    Read just bout all your guides and they’re awesome. Extremely well written and easy to understand, hell i hardly even bother reading other ppl’s guides anymore.

    Have yet to try this 1 but noticed one mistake. you can do the first aid quest in theramore when you have 225 FA and lvl 35. but as this is the 40-50 guide, i guess it doesnt really matter. If anyone feels this is nitpicking feel free to flame me all you like lol. But lets not turn this into the official WOW forums. NICE ONE JAME AND AGAIN GREAT GUIDE!!!!!!

    Great GuildesLove your guides. I used them from level 40 on my druid and i am now 60 thanks to your guide. I have started a warlock now and have been following your guide from level 30 now and i am already 33 after following your guide for just on day of play. I was wondering though, is there any chance you can write a level 20-30 guide for the alliance like you have for the horde?

    Extra possible questHey,

    I think this is an absolutely great guide… using it for my two alts now and it’s a charm!

    Just wondering if you ever came across the quest: “Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog” and thought about adding it to your guide.

    It’s an easy quest where you have to collect some bottles lying in the sand at the beach in hinterland (in your guide you go there to take the snapshot of the turtle). It’s easy to do and barely any work… you can get the quest in the bottom floor of the Booty Bay inn.

    Well, that’s my two cents!

    Nov 29, 2006 @ 21:46

    Inventory of quests?I’ve enjoyed using your guide, have a suggestion that would help me (because I’m running several alts some on and some not on the guide)

    Every couple of levels, can you do a quick list of what the complete list of quests are that should be in your quest list? This would allow folks to do a quick check that they have everything they need.

      I have just got done running this section of the guide for the 3rd time. Haven’t done Jintha’alor yet, that’s for tomorrow, but get this.

      First time I ran the guide was on a warrior, it went well.
      Second time I ran it was on a holy priest, it went well too.
      Third time was with a combat rogue. I am 3 days, 22 hours and 32 minutes /played to 50. Better than I’ve ever done.

      This guide is still as good as ever. 😀

I did all up to the 47 part and i cant do quests anywhere else cause i feel if i do em now u might of wrote down to do later then it will interfear with getting a lvl then. i didnt do instances because i feel their abit frustrating cause ur got to find a group etc. what do u suggest i do to get a lvl and 8k so then ill be lvl 47 to get back on ur guide?

          When in Swamps of Sorrows go east to Watcher Biggs (26,59)I had to shift click to get the quest, but it game me the experience and the follow-up just fine.

          I really enjoy the change of pace the various quests give and the way you string them together.

          Have had a hard time getting groups to do the instances though.

          That’s not your fault, mine for picking this server.

          Raschal the Courier“When the room is clear, click the Zukk’Ash Pod, complete the quest, and after Raschal the Courier is done with his speech, warp back to Feathermoon Stronghold.

          Turn in the quests and get the follow up:

          [46] A Hero’s Welcome”

          I did that, but after Raschal stealthed out and I warped back, the question mark stayed silver over Gino, though I had the quest from Rachel about reporting back — though I had a question mark when I had not had one before.

          GM solution was to just drop the quest and do it over, which worked. This time it came up gold. Reading around, the quest doesn’t always connect (at least you don’t have to escort him out, which was the original quest). The rod sells for more than the dagger/sword, just short of three gold, btw. This guide is really adding to my enjoyment of the game.

          Hit 47 while clearing my way to Raschal, btw, still no grinding.

          I’m really enjoying the guide, it makes playing through the game a delight, rather than a fumble. While I missed some quest chains (too much ganking on a PvP server, if I’d have only known when I started the game), I’ve been able to find things and enjoy the game alot as a result of the guide. I’m about a level or so ahead right now without grinding.

          Going to UldamWhen you go to Uldam, if you go to 39, 79 there is a path through the rocks that leads straight to the core you need to click on. While hugging the left wall works, going in the back way is a little easier. You then come out, look for the roamer, and complete the quest. It is kind of neat to be standing amid all the elite giants and be just barely safe.

          I’d been wondering what those objects are, scattered all over. Glad to be picking up ornaments.

          Neat lore, all in all too. Currently so close to making level 49 I can’t see the gap on my xp bar. 🙂 This guide is really fun.


          In Zul’Farrak my PUG fell apart just as we reached the pool. Luckily, the hydromancer roams, all by herself, so I was able to solo her into the valley leading to the pool and get the final tablet. Broke level 50 turning in quests, now off to rescue Sharpbeak.

          These guides make the game a great deal more fun.

          Thank you!

            If you can skip the Gaping Chasm, all the betterI’ve been using this guide to level my warlock (I didn’t know about these guides until I was already level 45) and it’s been good and fun. My ONLY problem with this part of the guide came up when I was doing the Scrimshank Redemption quest.

            Those stupid bugs spawn babies (either while you’re fighting them or after they die) and the quarters are really cramped inside the tunnels. There are wandering patrols that will aggro you easily and if you’re unprepared, expect to die.

            I did die once doing this quest. I’m not a bad player, but I got three adds, one of which constantly spawns level 1 bugs that do 1-14 points of damage per hit. At one point, I had killed all three of the “main” bugs, but there were about 15 level 1s that I couldn’t kill. Being constantly hit for 1 means you can’t cast any spells (my pet had already died). If you can’t cast spells, are out of mana, have already used your healthstone and a pot, well, there’s not much you can do. Also, trying to run away means you’re going to get dazed at some point by those little jerks and being dazed is all the more frustrating.

            I suggest bringing a friend for this part of the quest. Doing it solo (I was level 48 at the time) seemed a bit hard, even for an “uber” pet class like the warlock. Alternately, find another way to get your 4400 points of experience. =P

            • img
              Avr 15, 2007 @ 7:57

              Those baby spawning bugsI found that I had to avoid them at all costs …

              Though, the other thing to do was to sacrifice a void walker and then inferno, the waves of flame fry them quickly, in a mass (better than rain of fire, I think). DOT up mom, if you can’t avoid her (every so often you get one) ….

              If she sticks with him, rain of fire. If the little swarmers come after you, while your health is up, then the fire rings (you take some damage, but it doesn’t seem to stun you). If you have to, sacrifice the voidwalker and keep frying while the DOTS finish the job.

              But, it was easier to avoid them than I thought, once I figured it out.

              Died a couple of times until I got the hang of it.

              I’ll bet non-cloth wearers don’t get hit anywhere near as much.

              Ran into some nasty coward gankers doing the blood elf collection cycles. Eventually finished them all, with some parts left over that I mailed to a guy who helped me.

              Wish I’d found a flawless sphere, but I suspect it is really rare.

              Now, if I can only get as good of a group for the top of Jintha’Alor. I’ll bet I hit 51 on that quest.

          Dont have all the QuestsI am a lvl 41 hunter and I started reading your guide because i would normally just gring my way to 50, and thats getting really boring. Unfortunately I can follow the guide properly because in the opening paragraphs its list the STV quests to get, and the ones I should already have. I dont have them at all – This is my first time in STV because i grinded 30-40 in Arathi highlands. Im assuming this guide can only be followed accurately if I also followed the previous one and got all the quests you mentioned. While I can bearly get into it with my character for that reason, I have read through it and I think it is one of the most detailed and helful guides i have ever come across, but I would suggest tailoring the guide so that it can be followed by anyone, not just those who read the 30-40 guide. Even the locations of the NPCs who give the quests you mentioned would be good. Thanks.

          Loving how easy/quick its been to level, although it was kinda annoying grinding 50,000 EXP to get to lvl 46 after I had completed the lvl 45 section =P (same deal with the 46 -> 47 section)

          too much grindingI noticed that at a few of the levels, it just says “grind until you reach level __”. When I was 41, I only got 4 1/2 bars into the level and then it said grind until 42. I don’t think killing 300+ random things is very useful. 🙁

    Really nice jobWhau, you did such a great job writing these guides! I got my rogue to 60 by these guides, and working on a shadow priest, and well, leveling at a hilarious rate =D

    Of course you couldn’t know this, it’s an all new quest, but:

    Get the quest [i]Mercy for the Cursed[/i] from some Draenei guy in Harborage.. You only need to kill 3 Cursed Lost Ones (37-38), and it gives 2850 xp and 250 exodar rep

    New Quests in HinterlandsJame,
    Excellent guides! Just letting you know that with the new patch there is a Dranae ambassador standing outside of Aerie Peak that has 3 quests that are quick, easy and gave good xp for me at lvl 51. I gained almost 10,000 xp in just over 20 minutes, and one of the quests is not finished. Now that I know where to go, it would probably only take about 10 minutes.

    Blasted LandsFirst off I’m gunna congratulate you with this guide, I’ve used it on a Hunter and now on my Mage and it’s worked like a charm. Same goes for a lot of my friends 🙂

    My only problem is that in Blasted Lands (level 49) I have to kill an awful lot of creatures which are either level 50-53 or have mega fire resitance (or both!) and i’m a fire specc’d mage :P. I am finding that pretty difficult at the moment so I just thought i’d let everyone know…

    Well done again with the guide and happy WoWing!

    Good stuffI’m running through the guide for the first time and it really is great. It’s so nice to know where to go at all times.

    However, I have a suggestion. At level 48, when you drop by Booty Bay to turn in the OOX quests and whatnot this is a great time to run out and slaughter the captains. All the mobs are high green/low yellow so the XP is pretty good and the 5k you get for the quest is nice too. =)

    That might help people who tend to have a good chunk to grind at the end of each level even with the guide (I know I do usually).

    Déc 17, 2006 @ 18:39

    My 2cpHello again. I already commented on the 30-40 guide but there’s a few things I wanted to add here too as I’m following it.

    I’m currently 46 right now working in the Hinterlands.

    I have to ask though, do you often level with rest, or do you tend to kill [b]everything[/b] in the zone? Because I started Hinterlands at 46 like you say, and I even did some extra quests (there’s a new Draenei NPC in beta with 3 new quests that are pretty easy and good exp) and I still barely made more than half my level, after turning ALL the quests in.

    YES, I kill “everything in my way” as I’m walking around, and I follow the guide to a T but always seem to be about half a level behind where you say we should. I wasn’t even close to dinging 47. I think you might want to reparse your data or else tell us to kill everything in the zone 😉

    Anyway, just a few of my gripes. It’s still an amazing set of guides and really helps to level fast. But I just find it frustrating that I often end up grinding half of every level.

    Addition: I’m now 48.5 and just wanted to point out : I’m not sure when they changed it, or if it’s just beta or in live too, but the escort quests can no longer be done with the “trick” of just following the chicken. Mobs follow much better now, and are pretty fast, and the chicken will stop as soon as he gets aggro now. So trying to stay really far behind him isn’t as good as it used to be. You may as well be up in front. However, it is still ok to let him tank for a while if you need to rest 🙂

    Another addition: I just thought about adding this for any who have to grind – I think starting around the 46-48 range you can go to Felwood and grind on the Furbolgs there (the southern ones are upper 40s in level). This way you can be working on your Timbermaw rep and they are pretty good for cash too, and easy to kill too ^_^

    So I think that’s all, I am halfway to 50 now and I am still very impressed with the guides. Good job.

    2.0 Quests to Add!With 2.0, there are three new quests I’ve come along that are ‘along the path’ and fairly easily completed.

    1: Can’t remember the quest name or the NPC name, but he’s in the Inn at Southshore and requests you to get a box of crystals from the forsaken. They reside at the ruined tower on the path to Tauren Mill.

    2: Swamp of Sorrows: Harborage. [38] Mercy for the Cursed from Anchorite Avuun… kill three Cursed Lost Ones.

    3: Swamp of Sorrows: Harborage. [43] Pool of Tears from Holaaru… Collect 10 artifacts in the water near the middle-ish of the zone. Just need to be careful of a wandering elite dragon.

    w00tw00tit wasn’t until my 2nd character when the urge arised to use a leveling guide for optimum performance. i wanted to experience the game for what it is, initially. but let me tell you..this guide FTW! i followed it from 30-50 so far and it rocks harder than bedrock.

    one suggestion though..i noticed during the hinterlands segment – the guide skips over the featherbeard quest sequence. this series of quests is easy to do and has a great exp output. I am referring to:

    Step 1: Featherbeard’s Endorsement
    [Level 46]

    Step 2: In Pursuit of Featherbeard
    [Level 46]

    Step 3: Reclaiming the Eggs
    [Level 46]

    you can do them while following the guide.

    my 2 copper!

    P.S. I created an account on wow-pro just to get forum access and let everyone know I will be using the guide for the rest of my leveling >:)

      AdditionThere are two more quests as well that the quest giver has in Hinterlands (the Draenei). One is to kill the wolves that you see as you travel. The other is to kill a named, he has two adds before him, then once you get to him he’s a level 46 with a 44 pet. Soloed at 46 with the other Hinterlands quests.

      I recommend…start out with Featherbeard’s Endorsement when you first go to Hinterlands. Also grab the other two quests, Preying Predators and A Gesture of Goodwill. Go south to 13,55 and enter the house. The book is laying on the fireplace. Get the follow up. Kill the wolves as you go.

      AFTER you do that, head south to 25,66 ( Kill Witch Doctor. Do the three cage quest then head south and get the remains. Then find the eggs, etc. 🙂

        Awesome guide Jame.

        OnlyAwesome guide Jame.

        Only problem is the blasted lands bit. As a fire mage, it was damn nigh impossible to kill certain creatures (Hellboars, ashmane boars, etc) as they have a stupidly high FR. Tried switching to frost spells – to no avail, they just don’t do enough damage, and the boars themselves can maul you in a matter of seconds with their charge thing.

        So yeah, that’s my only problem with it. Great guide with that aside though Jame.

          This really is a fantasticThis really is a fantastic guide, but I am so glad that I didn’t play for the week during finals and built up a huge rest xp reserve. It seems by “kill everything” you mean “kill everything that spawns within 100 yards, wait for it to respawn, and kill them again”. Then again, I haven’t done many of the “optional” quests, so maybe that’s why I’m only 1 level ahead.

    Small errorSomewhere in the Hinterlands we’re required to kill stealthed wolves.

    [quote]You should find them quickly, they drop the stuff you need 40% of the time. (Humans: use perception / Warlocks: Buff yourself with detect invisibility[/quote]

    Detect invisibility does not help you see stealth because stealth and invisibility are two different effects. Using the felhunter does help.

    Great guide…but……I hate grinding, and there’s a lot of grind sessions in both this one and the previous. Since I’ve skipped these, I’ve been forced to do additional quests, and run the optional instances (which isn’t bad). All in all, I’m now 1,5 lvls behind, but still going strong (it’s easy with a Warlock).

    If you don’t mind grinding, it’s a great guide. If you, like me, hate it, well you need to realize that this guide isn’t the optimal.

    I really like the guide, but… I seem to mess it up.
    I startet lvl 46, with 10000xp, went to the hinterland… did more quests than you did, (skipped lfg Altar of Zul, instead i made some new Draenai Quests your guide doesn’t mention) but i only made 50000xp… i did not rest or this is the time, i’m going to go to Zul for the fourth time, to fix the XP rate. I have admit that since i’m german and using the German Version of WoW I’m facing troubles identifying some quests. But when i started Hinterland, i did exactly the same quests you did. Are you still killing any mob you meet on the map?

    EDIT: i wonder why you get to zul at lvl 49/50… its no problem with a group of 45s.

      30-50% grinding normal EACH levelJame,

      First off, great guide, I’ve been really enjoying following it.

      I’ve just finished all the quest for L45, and I guess now its time to grind pirates until 46 because I’m sitting at 61380/117500 (52% complete).

      Is this normal? I’ve followed your guide by the letter, and its not like L45 to 46 is difficult to follow in your guide.

      I’ve killed both Andre and Calid, didn’t get the key drop or the Schedules drop.

      Just not sure if this is correct, your exp statement at the end of L45 says you only gained 62K exp, which is close to what I have right now. I assume you didn’t LEVEL then either? You also grinded to 46?

      No problem grinding, I’m finding I enjoy it, just want to make sure I’m not doing something completely wrong here.

      And yes, I’ve killed everything in my sights all guide long heh.

      Had to grind 40K from L44 to 45 as well.

      Thanks for your help and this guide.

        Hmm what class are youHmm what class are you playing dn604? If you are a rogue or druid and use stealth when you need to kill a certain quest mob instead of clearing your way to it, it could maybe be the reason. Also duoing or grouping in general can influence exp rates.

        As another poster said, too much grinding from 45-46I am a lvl 45 frost mage. I completed all the listed quests in tenaris, got both andre and caliph, and i even did uldaman the night before, completely, and completed 7 quests in there. I thought I was wayyyy ahead of the game. Now i finished the circuit where if im not 46, im to grind to 47. i have about 60,000 xp, and Ill need about 50,000 to lvl.

        This guide has been pretty good thus far. There have been some times in it that I questioned the wording(when to turn quests in, before or after lvl), and some grinding sessions. However, this is insane. I have to grind 50,000 xp? Seems a bit much to me. Anyone have this issue? Can I do Zul Furrak now to make up some xp? Grinding on pirates isnt my thing. Id rather do an instance, did uldaman, dont really wanna go there again, and I only get about 60xp/kill there with no quests to turn in now. I got a few for ZF.

    Great guide so far !Ding 50! Thank you so much Jame for sharing such a good guide. I am playing the french version of the game and haven’t had any trouble finding the locations mentioned in this guide. (Coordinates are almost always indicated)

    I have been following your guide since level 30 (only instance I’ve done so far was Uldaman) and unlike some people stated, I have never been behind the level you said I should be. (This without rested xp and without always killing everything on my way)

    I guess that I tend to stay a bit longer than required on each spot, especially if mobes are easy kills.

    Last chapter incoming, I hope you’ll provide a 60-70 by the time I level up 60 🙂

      Don’t know if i missed aDon’t know if i missed a post on it, but when i was grinding from 46 to 47, i didn’t get a single troll necklace. Was wondering if they got rid of the repeatable aspect of the quest, didnt see a blue question mark above the NPC’s head. I was grinding at Shadra’alor if that makes any difference.

        TypoI found a slight typo in the 5th item of the Level 47 section.

        The text reads:

        Then go back and jump down the building, directly northeast of it and on slightly higher ground among ruins you will find the flame of Imbel. (39,9) Loot the Imbel Essence.

        When in fact you should travel NorthWEST after the 2nd flame.

        Thank you for the great guide. I just started using it at level 46 (47.5 now) and I must say it’s making my first Alliance character a lot easier to level.

    First Mate Crazz/Bloodsail Bucaneers questlineI was wondering if anybody here could help, as I’ve tried the Wow-europe forums and I’ve been essentially ignored.

    I started the 30-41 quests at 37, and am now level 41, but am having trouble collecting the quest ‘[41] The Bloodsail Buccaneers’ from First Mate Crazz in Booty Bay. I did my best to backtrack and catch up on what was needed at my level in the 30 – 41 Alliance guide, but I’m worried that I may have missed a required quest to start the quest from Crazz. Does -anybody- here have any idea what I may have missed? Please? The GM’s can’t help as it is essentially giving tips on gameplay, which they cannot do.

    Thank you in advance for anybody who answers.

      Excellent GuideI’m halfway through 45 at the moment and it’s just an awesome guide, I can’t stress how much you should do Uldaman I ran it last night and got close to 90k exp from all the quests I had finished aswell as all the mobs inside.

      Also you really should update the guide to include the new quests in SoS and The Hinterlands. Also the questline with the Altar of Tides, the final part of that quest is very easy to solo and is pretty much right on your circuit.

      Also, you might want to mention handing in Wool/Silk/Mageweave/Runecloth to the vendors (near tailoring trainer usually) as it’s very very easy EXP. Silk will give you 1650 EXP and Mageweave is 3300.

    Just a small error/typoat lvl 47 you say: “Once at the giant, turn in the quest. Then go southeast and back on the road, follow the road south and then east until (54,41).”
    those coordinates should be (54,51).

    lvl 41Awesome guide Jame. But there’s one thing that bothers me, in lvl 41 we have to kill Bloodsails south-east of Booty Bay. I’ve tried this on my warrior, which is equipped with some blues and all greenies, but i’m having a really hard time on that part! There are barely any Bloodsails walking around so i have to pull them out of the camps. That would be no problem at all, i can take on 3 of my own lvl, but those warlocks are just too annoying! I keep getting killed because some warlock and his imp are firing bolts at me while i’m fighting one of their friends! You say all of these quests are soloable, but i think you should have waited with this quest till lvl 43 or something like that!

    Nice Guide and Add up Hey Jame,

    First of all i would like to congrat you for taking your personal time to write such detailed guides who just makes your lives easier and that is worthful.

    Secound i would like to tell you that the guide really results, too bad it has grinding parts but luckly i have my resources.

    And third, i would like to add something to your guide if you think its useful, in Swamp of Sorrows, in The Harborage there is a quest named “Mercy for the Cursed” and it’s connected to the crystals and the escort/wizard supplies quests, its all in the same spot, all you have to do is kill the Big guys with a red aura, only three of them and it gives 2250 exp which is quite good.

    lvl 42Addition to my last comment: I did that part with the Bloodsails with someone else, since it just wasn’t possible. I’m at the part where i have to kill Maury ‘Club-Foot” Wilkins and again i’m having a hard time! Pulling them out of the little ruin is not possible (they will all come) and killing them one by one will result in three corpseruns (and probably even more). I tried to charge in and kill Maury with Retalliation on, but the Naga that was with him makes my character switch targets (happened several times) so in the end i killed the Naga and then died without being able to kill Maury.

    After waiting for 10 mins because some brainless UD Mage nagged him away with his Druid friend he (she?) spawned again, and this time alone. I charged in, killed her but halfway the Naga appeared again, switching my target to him again. In the end i could kill Maury, i shift-clicked his corpse to quickly loot it all and things went as planned: the window opened for about 0.5 seconds and then closed again. I ran out as fast because the other add spawned too, without watching my chat log. I just got out of the camp and i ran into that lvl 40 tauren (Something Swiftfoot) and died (had 100 hp left). I came back and checked my bags, nothing! I scrolled up the chat log and indeed, it didn’t loot, but the corpse did dissapear! Just my fucking luck!

    I logged out out of pure frustration, not planning on playing again today. If i had to grade this guide, i would give 5/5 stars for the first chapter, but this chaper i would give 4/5 or even 3/5, just because some parts are impossible to solo! You can agree with me or not, you can flame my ass off, this is just what happened to me and for me it’s impossible.

      This part is indeedThis part is indeed difficult, too difficult for certain classes (melees) even. I took this into account when I made the horde guide and will do so in the next guides I write. Sorry for the frustration it has caused you. I advise people to try and find someone to group with to do this quest, or to simply abandon it and grind a little more.

      • img
        Fév 4, 2007 @ 11:25

        Party is a good ideaDoing these parts with a party is indeed a lot better. It will get you a tiny bit less exp, but the grinding session at the end of lvl 41 (the Trolls) will make up for that. And it saves you a lot of frustration too 😉

      Solution to the problem.I have a very simple solution to this problem. I’m a Balance Druid and I did this at Lvl42 – as a caster, having 3 creatures attack me all at once is a nightmare with trying to cast spells! Entangling Roots three times every minute or so eats up the Mana big time, too.

      I simple targetted Maury himself and lured him out towards the nearby Gurubashi Arena, I planned on killing Maury and quickly looting the quest item – then it wouldn’t matter if I died, because I had what I needed. Instead, I noticed the other two returned to their positions and I was left with Maury hopelessly fighting by himself! A quick Healing Touch set me up to as good as new. The battle was cake from then on.

      For melee classes, consider taking some potions instead of healing. It’s not that hard once Maury’s bodyguards back off.

    Rhapsody shindiggerWhy didnt you tell me to keep grinding the gorillas and bears till i got all the stuff? I killed every single one on my way, only got 1 or 2, and assumed id get them on another circuit. I got all the way to handing in the pet quest in aerie peak, and you tell me to hand in rhapsody shindigger! wtf. now i have to go back an find the bloody gorillas again. not happy. but otherwise your guide is excellant. got me to 50 when i was dreading 42!

    Swamp of SorrowsI don’t know if this has been said before, but in The Swamp of Sorrows, at The Harborage (26,31) is a Draenei called Anchorite Avuun that gives a quest called Mercy for the Cursed. You have to kill 3 Cursed Lost Ones. If you pick this quest up together with Draenethyst Crystals you can do those at the same time and turn them in at the same time too. It’s no problem to do it because you will have to fight at least 3 of them anyways for the escort quest and to get the crystals. It gave me (in lvl 43) a nice 2850 exp boost.

    Quicker way to Jintha’AlorHi ^^

    If you stay in front of the entry at the bottom of Jintha’Alor, you see a way to the east which go in the mountain to the south and if you follow it to the end you manage to come almost at the top of this pyramid ^^, then stay on your mount, so that you can easily go at the top with no fight and go straight to Sharpbeak or, with a friend or two, kill hexx for the mallet and inside the cave for the Egg ( it takes 10 min to do both quests this way ^^)

    note : I am a human priestress and I was 48 when I did it with a 52 elf rogue friend of mine ^^

    Right on!After spending the last few days levelling my new Draenei Shaman, I ran into the quest for the Prestine Yeti Hide that has changed since the BC upgrade.

    originally, when turning in the Prestine hide, the Leatherworker rewarded you with 70s and 2000xp. Three days ago, I turned in this quest and received the cash but no xp :jawdrop: , which IMHO was a very useful quest for leatherworkers. I guess they thought it was an exploit?

    Thanks again James for your guide. Though from time to time I have jumped off the path you have detailed (such as the grog found on the Hinterlands beach that goes back to STV, as someone else has commented about), grinding has turned into less of a hassle and brings back the fun into the game.

    New questsFantastic guide Jame!

    Just think you have to update it a bit.. I’ve noticed that there have been add’ed some quests in TBC.. There are some Draneais who gives some very nice quests and i think you should go look for them, cause they do a nice xp bonus without any trouble.. There are one in Swamps of sorrow at 25,32 and there are 3 quests where i think 2 of them are very worth of doing in hinterlands at 14,48..

    small typoYou have:

    “This quest, unlike the Feralas one, is more likely to be done solo. It’s still not a walk in the part of course. So if you got a partner to duo it, all the better for you.”

    That’s “walk in the park”, not “part”.

      The guy giving this quest is a bit hidden… My advice : go to the inn in FMS, then walk to the docks where you take the boat… Instead of going down the docks, jump down to your left. Look for the quest giver there, below, outside the inn.

    LOVE this guide!Hi James,

    I absolutely LOVE this guide. 2 weeks ago, I was stuck doing quests that were too hard for me in STV at level 33, and I felt like my interest in WoW was waning. A friend of mine recommended this guide. I’m currently one bubble away from level 48, and I love the guide because it makes me travel to zones I might have missed, and the quests are appropriate for my level 95% of the time.

    A few comments :

    – One zone I found quite frustrating is the Ruins of Ravenwind at level 47. Those damn Harpies were very hard for me (I’m a human Pally; might be why) and I must have died 3-4 times. You did point out they were hard, but I had no idea; plus, the graveyard is all the way back at Feathermoon Stronghold… HATED the walk.

    – In Hintherlands, there’s a Draenei giving quests when you arrive in Aerie Peak. He was not included in your guide because he was added at the launch of BC, I guess; but the 2 quests are very good, easy, quick, and a very good XP reward. One involves killing wolves (which you end up doing just by questing in Hintherlands); the other one involves picking up Gryffon Eggs near one of the Temples. I strongly recommend everybody pick them up when they first arrive at Aerie Peak.

    That’s it! Thanks for these guides, they make WoW so much more enjoyable for me!

    How I use this guide…I dont depend on Jame to get me from one level to the next… I gather the quests he sais to and leave (some) of the quests he sais to leave. You should use it like a helping hand not a crutch.

    Also, I wouldn’t use this guide on my first character, it would kind of ruin it for me, part of the fun of playing to 70 the first time is to not know what the hell you are doing! I would log in and look for a tip when you get stuck. But, that’s about it…

    anyways, Jame – Brilliantly executed once again!

      sigh….This guide is pretty good… the only complaint i have is that there is a very large amount of grinding that has to be done… i didn’t mind it so much until level 46 where you had to “grind on trolls until you are one bubble away from 47”. It seems like a pretty dumb idea to have to grind about 11 bars…

    Swamps of SorrowThere are 2 new quests at the Harborage, from some Exodar-guys, that were added.

    “Pool of tears” from “Holaaru”

    you have to get 10 artefacts from the ground around the temple of atal’hakkar. took me around 15 minutes with waterbreathing, had to swim two times around the temple to get them all. the quest gives 1g20 and 4450 xp at lvl 42
    I did it after the Fallow Sanctuary part

    “Mercy for the cursed” from “Anchorite Avuun”

    This quest is a must-take i think. Some new Mobs were added at the Fallo Sanctuary: “Cursed Lost-Ones” you have to kill 3 of these to complete the quest. and to complete the other quests there you’ll have to kill some of them anyway.
    2850 xp at lvl 43 for this one.

    Additional Quest – Post Burning CrusadeHello all, this guide is very nice, and im leveling up my alt characters according to it. I would almost suggest to any new player.. do your own thing, get familiar with using thottbot/wowhead etc; and take your time learning your class and the game until your first character is capped at 70; or wherever you want it to be.

    Then when you roll your first alt; get into this guide. IT is a whole heck f a lot easier to appreciate this way, as a lot of new players with turn their noses up at any mention of grinding, until they learn how quick it actually is. However the main reason why I suggest this is because certain folk in my realm who have followed the guide on their only character tend to lack a lot of experience and common sense in out lands instances.

    However , this is not always going to be the case im sure.

    When you people get to the Swamp of Sorrows circuit, in the Harborage camp, north, where you pick up the crystals quest there is now a quest to kill cursed lost-ones and only 3 of them, which should easily tie in nicely with Jame’s guide and does not take any diversion away from the guide at all.

    I did, out of boredom do the quest to collect the relics from around ST as well, but in relationship to this guide it really isnt worth the bother in my opinion, as they are spread out very far and have very few mobs to engage around them.

    However, to kill 3 cursed lost ones is a synch as you will already be over in that area of the zone, and if you follow Jame’s golden rule of killing everything as you go (which i admit i… “forget” to do some times; lol) its going to end up being some nice bonus XP.

    I am sure Jame would have added this quest in at the time of writing the guide, but i think its a newer quest to compliment exodar rep gain for Burning Crusade.

    Jezzarkrius / Wisp – Uldaman

    *P.S. At the time of Writing this comment originally i neglected to check the later comment in thi thred, so the fellow above me pretty much made exactly the same mention of the quests as I did. So in effect I agree completely with the above post, except may not so much the relic gathering quest.

    Regarding The Stave of Equinex…You said “Now that you have all 4 essences, go southeast to the Equinex Monolith (38,13).”

    In fact, the monolith is at (39,13). If you try and go to (38,13) you’ll be on a fruitless and extremely annoying journey trying to break into the mountains.

      Halfway to 34Hey James, I’ve talked highly of your guides many times, and still encourage everyone I know to use it to level.

      Now, I’m with my fifth char on which I’m using your guide and I run in to this bit

      Step 13: Now you probably must be about halfway to level 34. It’s time to go grind at Kurzen camp or on the Trolls, up to you. When you are 1 bubble away from lvl 34, warp to Booty Bay.

      On every char this step puzzles me as to how I am supposed to have reached this level. I am currently 14.5% on my way to 34. This has more or less bean the case for every char I’ve played. Am I missing something?

      Cheers mate, your guides are still top notch! 🙂

    Update plzHello James,
    I have really enjoyed your guide and it has helped me a ton. My draenei pally is now 48 and so far I’m usually short xp by the time i have done everything you recommend so I just grind. It has not been unbearable but I’m almost sure that now because of BC you get less XP or something from each quest because when you say you have 40,000 xp i have 20,000 xp. I realize some other players have had the same comments and i was just hoping that you do an update soon. I think a lot of players and I would really appreciate it.

    Once again great guide and it has been a life saver just a little update please. 🙂

    More quests in STV.Since the quest limit has been raised from 20 to 25, you can do some more quests during your STV run at level 41-42:

    Pearl Diving, you’ll get this in Badlands
    Curse of the Tides, from the Inn (follow up)
    Excelsior, from the leatherworker (follow up)

    They are group quests, but the mobs involved are about 5 levels below you already, so that should not be a real problem. I would recommend some water breathing potions for these quests.

  • img
    Mar 27, 2007 @ 8:17

    add questi would suggest adding in [url=;wquest=611&locale=enUS]”the curse of the tides”[/url] in booty bay during the 41-42 run. while it is labelled as a group quest it is easy enough to solo as long as you have an elixir of water breathing. its 3150 experience at level 42 and can be completed while you pick up the second troll legend

    just realised there were more pages and read my suggestion already posted, so i shall add my vote to adding this quest

    Great jobI am a bit high for this guide, so i didn’t find a use for it, so i didn’t really read it all. I skimmed through a bit of it however, and its very impressive. Alot of great details on where to go backed up by pictures labeled with numbers. This is the best guide i’ve seen yet! You fluently covered all the levels with good detail, im sure this took you a while to construct. It might get a little confusing for people who already covered some of the quests that u put in a certain order, but it shouldnt cause to much of a distraction. Great job! 5/5

      New quests in HinterlandsThere are 2 new quests for the hinterlands called A Gesture of Good Will in which you have to kill a level 46+44 (Easy at level 47) and Featherbeard’s endorsement where you have to go to his hovel which is just south of Aerie Peak then to Sharda’Alor (Which means you can get the quest for Sunken temple) and finally find 3 eggs from just left of his body (Coming down the stairs) and there are 3 others by the exile. easy exp!

    Not possible to soloFirst of all, thanks a bunch for writing such a complete and well-thought out guide, it’s been great so far.

    However, I’m now at 42, and some of these quests are simply too difficult. The Bloodsail quests, and especially the Zanzil quest, are simply not possible to solo (at least not possible as a warrior). Unless you are EXTREMELY lucky with your pulls, spawns, and whatever other factors, these quests simply will not get done. The only reason I finished the Bloodsail quest is because another player was clearing the camp out before I got there.

    I am a good puller and have about as good as equipment as I can get for my level. Part of the problem is that many of the mobs don’t “pull”. When you try, they just stand there and throw knives or fireballs at you, and it’s not long before 5 other mobs have joined in. The only way to get around this is to run far far away to pull them out, then come back to the mob and kill it, at which point you’re likely at least half dead and will be lucky to survive the fight.

    Another big problem is that walls and trees are apparently no obstacle to the AI here, as they constantly throw knives and fireballs straight through every solid object in their path.

    Needless to say, I’m going to be skipping at least some of the quests in this guide for now and either grinding or finding something else to do instead.

      Great guide, but not quite perfect.A very well-written guide. I am overall experiencing success with this guide. I followed it from the level 43 mark and I am now almost level 50. The reason I skipped it from 40-42 is because it involved going into STV. STV, while a great place to level on a PvE server, is simply HORRENDOUS in a PvP server, which happens to be where I am leveling at. It is very tough to get any leveling done when you are getting killed by a horde player 20 levels higher than you every 5-10 mins. Another gripe I am having is that sometimes it relies on you to either get a group together to do instances, or you simply have to grind. No other option. Problem is, I’m playing on an underdeveloped low populated server (especially on the alliance side), so I have no choice but to grind. And now that I’ve finished up in ZF, it tells you to go to Blasted Lands and quest there, but it is at the moment impossible due to all the camp-happy horde there. So what other option do I have? Grind where there is no horde.

      Do not get me wrong, this is a very well-written guide, despite all the difficulties with horde and avoiding STV and such, I am still level 50 at 5 days 10 hours played. Which is much better than most other people on the server can claim.

      Overall, this is probably an awesome guide for leveling on a populated PvE server. If you’re on a PvP or low-populated server, it’s still good – just don’t completely count on it, try to use your head and think of other ways to level when there are things in this guide you can’t do. But then again, there are other leveling guides here (including mine :D) that should help you.

      Overall, this guide gets a 9/10 from me. It’s overall better than my guide I think. 🙂

    “However, as you are coming“However, as you are coming into the camp from the south/west, you will see 2 huge trees and some ‘guards’ per se, to indicate the start of the Grimtotem camp. You will be able to see the sprite darters trapped in a cage not far behind.”

    It is extremely easy to get disoriented and to think that you are going to lose the quest after you have finished it just because you can’t find Kinjal. If you’ve gotten the sprites out and Kindal has gone home, all is well.

    This could probably use a map of its very own. Nothing like having 90 seconds left and not being able to get oriented to find that darn path, which is not terribly obvious.

    If you are on a PvE server it is a lot easier, but PvP you have constant competition from lots of horde for this quest and the general area.

    For more on finding her and links to a video:

    BTW, this guide is great. Funny note, the distress beacon dropped twice while I was freeing the sprites.

    Best, I made level 46 by turning in the last of doling justice (I know, I should have waited, but … I had to catch a boat back to pick up my level 46 warlock skills anyway).

    nice choice of quests, stillnice choice of quests, still some nice quests were left out that were easy to do and gave nice xp. Have to say though that from the lvls 47-50 gaining xp was rather difficult to ding @ next level, had to grind 40-50k xp (like 10k rested from the beginning of the lvl) in the end of each level, and it was slow. Did every quest as the guide said, no problems (exept corpse running from 10 to even 30 minutes a day cause of horde-players). But the guide helps anyways, don’t have to waste time in thinking “what am I going to do next”.

    NiceI started using this guide at level 44 as a warlock and I had done most of the level 41-43 chain quests you required anyway. Level 60 in about 14 days 1-2 levels a day, you saved my alt :p

    This guide is so so so so easy as a warlock, the only quests I was not able to solo were the instance ones and the quest in the slag pit where the overlord guy had about 14000 hp -.- Every single other elite quest and normal quest I was able to solo without a single problem, full affliction warlocks are broken.

    When it came to the bug tunnel I realized that my pet was going to be the reason I lived or died here, so you have to absolutely treat it like gold. My VW never dropped below 45% in that bug tunnel because I knew suffering was the only thing keeping me from getting busted up by 15 level 1’s. Other than that you should really have no issue’s following this guide what so ever.. as a lock anyway.

    I hate instances with a passion, but I do understand there simply arent enough quests to get levels without them. So I sucked it up and did them, no matter how much pain I went through. It was horrible seeing my usual 40kxp/hour rate drop down to like 10kxp in a mara group.

    The marks for leveling still were on the dot for me, you actually do have to kill most of the mobs on your way to something when you walk to it, it helps a lot. In fact I started to level ahead of the guide at around 56, saved me a grind session. All in all, great guide, I really enjoyed leveling again.

    XP RateThis is one of the best guides I’ve ever seen. Though, when u say your XP rate was around 30k p/Hour, mine was only around 18k-20k. Maybe it’s because i’m a warlock. I’m not really sure.

      Swamp of SorrowsWith BC there are two new quests added to Harborage. One of these is a little out of the way with the quest route (collecting artifacts from the lake around ST). But the other is really easy to do with the crystal fragments quest.

      I can’t remember the name of the quest, but you pick it up from a draenei in Harborage and need to kill 3 Cursed Lost Ones, which spawn all over the place where the draenist fragments/escort are (and they are big and have a red aura around them, so you can’t miss them).

      I think the quest gives 2.5k xp or something at level 44, so worth picking up as you are going that way anyway.

    Very nice guide but…There are some quest that they are too hard for the lvls u suggest and solo… i do this guide whit a war pre-bc and it when good… and i’m doing the guide whit a shammy its giving me some hards times… i u should rewrite the guide ( i know this is not easy just my opinion) cuz there r a lot of new quest on BC like some1 says in swamp of sorrows its a draenei whit a easy quest kill 3 guys in your way that u cannot miss… i aerie peak its another draenei whit another easy quest about killing some wolfs that r just under the camp… and the necklace troll thing is no longer redoable… in my opinion i suggest starting all this james alliance guide at lvl 32… this gives u an advanteg over all quests makes them easy and still nice exp

    A Meal Served COldThe instructions for this quest are no longer valid. Before, if you obtained the Chilled Basilisk Haunch, you could abandon the quest and reacquire it to complete it. Now, when abandoned, the Haunch disappears from inventory. Had to do this timed quest the old fashioned way. Got 4700 exp though. Worth ten minutes if you are not in a big hurry.

    Easy Extra QuestsI thought I’d make a guide on a few of the extra easy quests that came out with one of the newer patches, and therefore is not mentioned in your guide.

    [b]Level 42
    Swamp of Sorrows[/b]

    Pick up the quest [color=gold]Mercy for the Cursed[/color] and [color=gold]Pool of Tears[/color] at the Harborage (26,31) from Anchorite Avuun. While collecting the 6 crystals, kill any “Cursed Ones” on your way, until 3 are dead. Then, during step 10 where you have to discover the Temple, go under water and look for 10 Atal’ai Artifacts. These can be obtained without killing any mobs. Most are deep underwater, although some are at the edges.

    [b]Level 46
    The Hinterlands[/b]

    Pick up the quests [color=gold]Preying on the Predators[/color], [color=gold]A Gesture of Goodwill[/color], and [color=gold]Featherbeard’s Endorsement[/color] from Ambassador Rualeth. While in the hinterlands, kill Mangy Silvermanes and Silvermane Wolves until the kill list for [color=gold]Preying on the Predators[/color] is complete. Go south to Featherbeard’s Hovel (13,55). Inside his house is his journal, next to a fireplace. Read it to turn in the quest and get the follow up [color=gold]In Pursuit of Featherbeard[/color]. Continue completing the quests for the cages and necklaces, then go south to a cave. (26,66) Clear the entrance and inside you will find Witch Doctor Mai’jin and his spider Tcha’kaz. Kill both (Soloable at level 46). Continue questing until it is time to grind at Shadra’Alor. You’ll find Featherbeard’s corpse at (37,71). Clear your way up the steps to him, get the follow-up quest, and collect 5 eggs in Shadra’Alor. When done, turn in all 3 at Aerie Peak.

    That concludes the new easy quests.

    I’d also like to make note that for fairly inexpensive prices, I bought runs though SM Armory. When I hit level 40, I payed a warrior for Uldaman runs. Fairly quick, good XP. At one point I was two levels ahead of the guide because of this, but because all of the grinding in the guide that I skipped, I am now only half a level ahead.

      Mai 28, 2007 @ 3:04

      Darkshire stop before Blasted LandsAfter you turn in the new quests that start in Harborage, it’s not a bad idea to head west again back into Darkshire and pick up:

      Assuming you stop by Watcher Biggs you’ll now have 3 quests to turn into the same NPC in Nethergarde AND it’s an extra 2900 exp+reputation for a 10 minute detour. Definitely worth it if you’re doing the new Harborage quests (which forces an extra doubleback to Harborage anyway).

    Just take it all with a grain of saltI will say that james’ guides are some of the best, even better then many that are paid for. Given that, I thought it would be wise to give a little bit of advice to newcomers to theses guides.

    there are going to be classes that simply solo and grind faster and easier then others. Often hunters and rogues are the easiest (notice all the posts from those classes that said the guide was a breeze? lol), and i find that alot of guides were written using these toons as test beds. thus, sometimes you will run into hard spots that come across in the guide as easy do’s.

    If you cant get a certain quest finished at your level, its possible to skip a few quests and come back later…Ive found that sometimes it better to fly to an easier area and do a quest there then to try and stick it out in a harder area to finish one quest…dont be afraid to leave X quest for a little later. If you want to break the bank and maximize your exp/hr for something to brag about, then i would highly recommend starting an alt that is designed for that.

    Now to those who would wish to contradict my statement im not saying i dislike any other class, my fav toon is currently an enhance shammie, and i have a priest as an alt. but all you really have to do is roll a hunter and a priest, and compare the two in grinding, and you’ll know what i mean. all toons can lvl, i’m just giving this info out in hopes that people will read it and it will help with their frustration in following the guide. Good luck all 🙂

    quest doesn’t exist anymore… Awesome guide tho!when i went to pick up Vital Supplies from High Sorcerer Andromath in Stormwind (level 49 step #1) i discovered that there was no quest there for me… so i went and looked it up on Allakhazam and Thottbot and neither site had it… i believe this quest no longer exists. :jawdrop:

    other than that amazing guides… i went from almost giving up on my shaman to leveling faster than my guild or friends ever expected… i don’t have a lot of time to play anymore but even on the shitty leveling levels (45-52ish) i have been leveling just about once a day or once every other day… and while i don’t achieve the xp/hr or level as fast as you did i can see how my rogue or mage would have if i had used your guides while leveling those chars.

    THANKS you rock!

    p.s. DING! on to the 50-60 one!

    A few additions to the Hinterlands areaAs posted already, I think people should grab [50] Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog from STV, this quest is super easy to do and can be done while you’re looking for Gammerita.

    I don’t know if you wrote this guide pre-BC or not, but there is now a Drenai (sp?) guy who gives three quests people should grab, they’re very easy to complete with some nice exp bonuses. A Gesture of Goodwill (simple, kill two level 44 guys in a cave, pays 4050 exp) and Preying on the Predators (kill some wolves, not exactly a hard thing to find! pays 3750 exp). You can kill most of these wolves while doing the other quests in this area so it isn’t out of your way, then finish them up later if you wish to do it that way. Good quest because it’s simple and you get exp from the wolves and turning it in, not alot of running around. The third quest; Featherbeards Endorsement, you go to his house and get about 3050 exp just for clicking on his journal… I haven’t completed the next part yet, but the first part is at least worth doing, easiest 3050 you ever got ;))

      Ghaz’ridian QuestNote: I posted this but a ‘cannot connect’ page came up and I couldn’t see the post anywhere. In case it hasn’t posted, I’m going to post this again.

      At level 45, I think people should get the Ghaz’ridian quest at the Broken Pillar (south of Gadgetzan in Tanaris). A goblin should give this to you. You get a hat for tracking the ornaments, and you need to collect 30 of them.

      Go directly south to Eastmoon ruins, where there are some level48 ogres – they’re really easy to kill and give decent EXP. Clear the ruins of them, then put on the hat you got from the quest – collect up all the Ghaz’ridian you can find (see them on the map when wearing the hat). They respawn fairly quickly, so don’t worry if it doesn’t look like there is enough. So do the ogres, though, so keep clearing the ruin of them when they respawn.

      Turn in the quest when you have 30 to the goblin at the Broken Pillar, for a welcome 4400 EXP and choice of a staff and leather, which are both pretty nice for casters.

      Eastmoon is also a good grinding spot because of it’s easy kills, good EXP and fast respawn.

      I think people lv45 should do this quest because it’s really easy and gives nice EXP and rewards. Also, after finishing the Lv45 section I only had a half full EXP bar when you said I was supposed to ding, so you might need to add a few more quests.

        Nov 12, 2007 @ 22:05

        Just follow the guideIf you continue following his guide he takes you back to Tanaris and you do the Ghaz’ridian quest and while there you have a quest to kill the orges. Jame’s guide doesn’t miss many quests that you should do (:

    well jame i really like urwell jame i really like ur guide and i get about 130k exp a day so its very efficient but i think u missed something, few hunting quests in str valley where u have to kill elite tiger, panther and raptor. i soloed it very easily and had about half mana and half hp after the fight and didnt use any potions as a balance druid. according to ur guide i was lvl 42 as i should be. the fights were about 2 mins long and i got about 14k exp from all of those 3 quests. also so very good items. so i think these quests should be included, well maybe except with king bangalash, it was bit harder cause he spawns few pantheras to help him, so for some classes it might be harder.

    just wanted to say oncejust wanted to say once again that this guide rocks.

    have been leveling my mage (fire) at supersonic speed now for some time. only place so far I have had any problem was in Blasted lands on the basilisks and boars due to thier resistant against fire, but I solved that with a respec to frost and when i was done I respeced to fire again.

    will probably have a little problem with the upcoming searing gorge elementals but that is another problem.

    Thankyou for the guide, Jame. WoW is fun again!I hope you can take a chance to read this so you can understand how much I appreciate you putting this guide here, Jame. 🙂

    I first started WoW just over a year ago (Human Warrior), but when I saw someone fighting as a Moonkin I hastily changed to Nelf Druid (not a loss, I was only lv3 anyway, and still trying to figure out and get used to controls, etc). I leveled just fine with my sister, a Nelf Hunter. I was always grouped with her and leveled, VERY SLOWLY until lv30.

    Obviously, being in a group was dragging out my levelling. It’d been about a year, and I was only lvl30. Plus I messed about a lot. My sister stopped playing (she says she doesn’t have much time but I know it’s because I’m higher levelled, and being my elder sister she can’t take that). I started to level by myself in Desolace. I got to lvl37 in about a week (not /played, real life time), which was faster than I’d ever levelled before! I got to lvl39 really easily.

    But I was starting to fall behind again, having to grind a lot, which got dull. So I decided I need some help at lv41, 3 tiresome levels of full-on grinding Elder Mistvale Gorillas (not a complete loss, I did find Staff of Jordan and made 475 gold!) – but it made the game feel more like work than play. So I went out in seek of a good guide. But all of them were just boring grinding guides, and I was sick of grinding (you know those effortless guides that just list places of that level*? Something you can find out using the World Map on the website in about 2 minutes maximum).

    Then I came across a website that listed a whole bunch of guides for everything! There were profession guides, money guides and levelling guides so I read through the lot. First I thought of re-rolling Horde so I could use Joana’s guide – but being a teenager I have no income and cannot afford paid guides (I already ask a lot from my parents paying for WoW for me and my sister every month anyway. Plus the cost was in $, and being English I didn’t know how much that was in £).

    Then I came across your guide, and it was brilliant – I read through most of the lv41-50 section and was stunned at how much information, detail and effort there was written down. I printed off some of it after reading through, and noticed there was minimal grinding time. I’m a terrible leveller anyway and have gotten from lv41-43 in one day, which is good by my standards (I’ve been logging out overnight in inns so I get the rested bonus XP).

    But the best thing? I enjoy levelling up in WoW again! It felt like pure work before, and with the Burning Crusade realised when I was lv37 (I couldn’t play for AGES due to a cash crisis so we couldn’t afford the monthly fees), the new level cap seemed so far off it was horribly daunting, as if as soon as I got close to lv70 they’d release a new one for lv80. With the help of this guide, I’m sure I can beat them to it, and get to lv70 well before a new expansion comes out! I look forward to a lvl60-70 guide. 🙂

    *They usually list things like:
    Lvl30-40 = Desolace
    Lvl40-45 = Strangethorn Vale
    Lvl45-50 = Searing Gorge
    It’s really not helpful. Like I said, you can find that out using the website it a few seconds. But you’re guide lists quests too so it’s alot better. 🙂

    Gahz’ridian QuestIn Tanaris, there is a good quest you’ve not included – I did it with ease at level 45 (and I’m Druid).

    “Gahz’ridian” is given by a goblin in the Broken Pillar, south of Gadgetzan. It gives you a hat to detect Gahz’ridian Ornaments and you must get 30.

    If you go directly south to Eastmoon, you will come across A LOT if you put the hat on and see them in the map. They’re guarded by lvl48 ogres, which give nice EXP and are dead-easy to defeat. Clear the entire ruin and use the hat to find the ornaments – you should be able to collect 30 in no time. You get lots of EXP from killing all the ogres.

    Go back up to the Broken Pillar, and turn in the quest. You get a nice choice of staff and leather (both good for casters) and a nice extra 4400 EXP for it!

    I really think this should be included because when lvl45 I was only half way through the level before you said I should ding – so I had a snoop around for extra quests and found this. 😀 It’s really easy and gives good EXP, so I think you should put it in the guide.

      =/You’ll find that the Gahz’ridian quest is already in the guide, and has been for a long time. I used this guide for my 3rd char, near end of 2006, and done it then. Stop jumping aheady of the guide =p

    Half xp barAfter finishing the Lvl 46 section I only had a half full EXP bar when you said I was supposed to ding, so you might need to add a few more quests.

    Nice help anyway ;P

    GuideTook me a long time to get my 3rd Alt to lvl 45… cause it was just always 2 boring to keep doin the same old quests over n over. When i found this guide, it took me 1 day to manage to get to 49, then the other day i was on 51. Absolutely the Bomb, and i started out with the lvl40 steps of the guide, and finished through to the end. Now I’m going 4 the next Chapter with 1,9 Levels advanced. THX Jame…

    Nicely done

    thanx a lotive been using this guide, because my guild uses it, and even w/ screwing around sometimes, running instances, helping out friends, lvling mining and engineering, I’ve managed to go from 40-48 in about a week (of real time, not play time). It’s really amazing what this guide is doing. I’ve only been playing for a month too, and it’s always fun to tell people, because it is really fast. Thanks a lot for this guide Jame.

        i love this guide, bur it says at the beginning guide that you used “titan panel,” do you still use it? also, i like fubar about as much as titan, is there a way to have them both at the same time? (i kept having trouble only displaying the co-ords for titan 😕 )

        and one last thing, i’m addicted to engineering, so every time i get to lvl 40, i have trouble getting money for my mount… what is the BEST grinding spot for money at that level?)

    What the #$@% with Aerie Peak?Hey man, these are some smashing guides, I’m using them faithfully and they’re excellent, but may I ask what the idea with keeping Aerie Peak your home for over HALF THE GUIDE is? Just so you can hearth back a grand total of… twice? :/ seriously… you’d save a lot more time with all the running back and forth inside the zones themselves (ie,
    ‘now ride back to feathermoon…’), so, bit annoying on that, otherwise its cool!

    Déc 6, 2007 @ 16:56

    Just a heads up!First of all these guides rock. Secondly, you wont have to grind as much anymore. With the release of 2.3, you have LESS XP to get between levels 20-60 as well as MORE XP given for quests turned in while between 30-60. This in turn means some quests will turn Green faster as you will level much quicker then when this guide was written.

    Following this guide will allow you to level even faster then before 2.3 was released. In addition, most of the group quests pre 2.3 are now soloable as the majority of the mobs are no longer “elite.”

    Déc 6, 2007 @ 18:27

    Great guide!This is a great guide. The only trouble I have encountered are obtaining groups for dungeons such as Zul Farrak. Sadly, there is either a lack of interest in them, or alternatively, groups consist of alts all of whom already know each other and aren’t willing to lower themselves into inviting new players who don’t know the place like the backs of their hands!

    So a plea to experienced players; remember, some of us are as new as you once were. Remember what that felt like, and how welcome a friendly helping hand was to you.

      On my server I have had aOn my server I have had a very easy time finding pick-up groups (especially Zul’Farrak!) and I’m a hunter (warriors and priests tend to have the easiest time finding groups).

      One inspirational thing I love about Jame’s guides, which is never clearly stated, is how enjoyable and important the instances are. The guides tend to lean towards solo playing but never shy away from recommending all the key instances on your way up the levels.

      It is very important to get lots of instance experience with your character’s class at all levels so when you do get to the end game experience you are fully capable.

      Make the effort … do the instances. Sometimes I even go twice to the new ones for me. The first time I don’t bother trying hard to get all the quests, I just familiarize myself with the instance and help out as much as possible. The second and subsequent times I go in specifically to complete quests.

    I’d just like to point out an error, in the second straglethorn loop for lvl 41, you say to collect snuff but not to get the quest, snuff is a quest specific item and you can’t get it without the quest

    thought I’d let ya know 😉

    Fantastic guideThanks so much for these guides, I’ve never levelled so fast, especially with the new patch and extra xp for quests. Also it’s now possible to solo Qiaga and Morta’gya at the Altar of Zul in the Hinterlands since they are no longer elites. If you’re a hunter just send in your pet and keep healing it as shadowbolts still do a lot of damage

    tip time!

    when killing thetip time!

    when killing the 2 warlocks on the beach for the charts and orders, as a priest you should Mind control one of the warlocks, kill both pet, other warlock will probably kill your mc’ed warlock. You go from 4->1 mob with 75% hp and then it’s just silence and dps. You’ll beat them without a scratch 🙂

    was just doing this quest thought it would’ve been a good tip, as I died once before I realised this 🙂

    hope it helped!

        Revamp?I’ve been following this guide, just hit 40 and got my mount!:), but I read the comments about changing it after 2.3 and I started after 2.3. The thing is I keep on getting ahead and not needing the grinding so I’m wondering if i missedd something like if there is an update to this site… Also I abandonded the quest Down the Scarlet Path (or something like that found in desolace) so I missed one quest at SM but there were only two quests to do their anways… Am I missing one? Another thing is when I did it our group was at Arcanist Doan and one of our members left the group DoTted the guy and then asked to be readmitted. We didn’t realize this so when we killed him the loot was all for the lock. Now I never want to go back to SM and want to kill him because he got those EPIC GLOVES!!!!!!! :jawdrop:

          It’s normal that you areIt’s normal that you are ahead of my guide in levels, since patch 2.3, each quest gives more XP and you need less xp for each level. So even if it’s not revamped yet, it’s still working.

    Déc 17, 2007 @ 23:23

    Nice guide!I just wanted to let you know that I’m about 1/3 of a level ahead of the guide, and have not done a single instance with this toon, and at one point I was an entire level ahead and haven’t had to grind at all. I supplemented grinding in the Badlands for the Agitator quests in Theramore.

    I’ve only leveled this one toon with this guide, so I’m not sure if thats normal but its something to keep in mind when doing your next update. There may be a lot less grinding needed since 2.3.

      For Skullsplitter Tusks, you need to be level 37 and to have done [35] Bloodscalp Ears.

    Just an IdeaHiya Jame, firsly, love the guide 🙂
    It has helped me this much :jawdrop:
    But since the new patch came out, I’ve been leveling faster than the guide due to the extra experience between levels 20-60.
    So when I get too far ahead, I abandon a quest…and have gotten myself into lots of trouble with deleting quests which have follow ups and what not.
    Anywayz, I’ve put some thought into it and came up with an idea.
    Maybe if you put quests that don’t have a follow up in a different colour, say purple, or whatever, so if people get ahead they can abandon the quest without stuffing up everything, and then put when you do the quest in colour so they know to check if they have it before they go over all the way to find out that they don’t.
    It’s just an idea, not sure if it would work and not sure if it’s worth the trouble doing (I understand that it’d take a hell of a lot of time), but just putting the idea out there in case you decide to take it up 🙂
    Me and my sister both love your guides, they’re awesome 🙂
    Thank you, we really appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into them 🙂

    Quest follow-ups and pre-reqsHi Jame, so far so good, I’ve been following your guide for the most part since level 43ish.
    Just one suggestion I’d like to make – it would be fantastic if you had some sort of chart or something showing which quests have pre requisites, so that if someone were to start your guide at say, lvl 51, they would know which quests on the guide need to have something done before. For instance, I did some instancing with friends between 49 and 51, so I’d like to skip the quests on your guid in between, but when I go to the lvl 51 part, I can’t get some of the quests because there were some I should have done before them. I don’t want to back track, but if there were a chart I could look at, so I could know if there were maybe two quests I needed to complete before I worked on these… well, I hope you get what I mean. I tend to be a bit long winded lol.
    Anyways, thanks for the guide!! Makes my life a lot easier (My lvl 70 rogue is 40 days played to lvl 70 without your guide, though I did alot of helping out guildies etc., my hunter is 6 days at lvl 51, huge difference!!)

      Yes, that’s a good idea. ButYes, that’s a good idea. But that’s a lot of work and for now I don’t really have the time, I still have to finish the horde 60-70 guides and help on revamping the alliance guide.

      But I’ll maybe do that after 🙂

    RevampsI personally don’t care for the revamped guide. I love this guide, I’ll be well over 53 by the time I’m done with it, plus I don’t need to do the “If you aren’t this level, grind!”. I’m highly looking forward to starting Outland at hopefully around 61 😀

    • img
      Jan 19, 2008 @ 20:22

      why would u want to startwhy would u want to start outlands at lvl 61 when u can go there at 58 ………

      • img
        Jan 20, 2008 @ 15:07

        That’s the typical mistakeThat’s the typical mistake players make. They think “Quests in outlands give nice rewards, why not go there as soon as possible”?

        They don’t think long term. They think that this is enough of a reason to completely ignore a huge chunk of quests they could still do in the old world. Since patch 2.3, some of those old world quests (namely in the plaguelands, silithus, winterspring and felwood) give as much exp than the ones from Hellfire. Don’t forget that once you are level 70, those quests will be grey and it will be a waste to do them.

        At level 70 you will want your flying mount and eventually you will also want your epic flying mount. Now all the quests in the Outlands, especially the high level ones give an awesome amount of gold at level 70 (Every quest you complete at level 70 will convert the experience reward into extra gold).

        Questing has definitely become one of the best ways to make gold in the game without buying any. If you follow the old world guides until level 60.5 or 61 before going to the Outlands, it will make it easier to breeze through the Outland guides and will leave you with a good half a level (69-70) worth of quests to make gold.

        ps: Please try to do an effort with your spelling in the future. 🙂

    Side Quest for MagesFor Level 41, Section 4; if you are a mage, I would take the follow up to “Pretty Boy” Duncan which is The Curse of the Tides. While it may mean diverting from the steps, completion means getting Robe of Crystal Waters. Check to see if this will be an improvement over what you have. I was fighting for good cloth armor before lvl 40 but by this time, I was so focused on Fire that mods never reached me before I dropped them. Having the +12 for intellect and stamina just meant that I was able to run longer without needing to stop to replenish mana. Plus, I had the robe enchanted to help improve it.

    hey, great guide.
    i´m nowhey, great guide.
    i´m now on lvl 44 and figured out how to manage the “2.3 problem”

    first I already started this guide with lvl 29.
    second I recommend to skip some grinding session.
    maybe you run out of money then (i still haven´t a mount yet^^), but with this, the guide works really good.
    skip grinding could also bring more fun.

    sry for any mistakes, I´m german 😛

    at first…thx a lot@Jame

    at first…thx a lot for the guides imo they are better than Joana and Bryans 😉

    but what i want to know…which chars u use for making these guides? i mean u surely lvl 1-70 a few times before writing these chapters right?
    do u try out different classes or stay with 1? if so…which class u think is the fastest leveler??


    • img
      Jan 10, 2008 @ 11:31

      Hunter is in my experience the easiest and quickest to level.

    Vulture’s Vigor it not a good use of time.I’m here to verify what’s been said on wowhead and elsewhere:

    the two vulture spawns near the questgivers are for some reason no longer spawning as buzzards but scorpions. This makes an already agonizing drop rate even more of a waste of time. Now even a single person competing with you for buzzard spawns in the zone will make the quest take 3x longer. This is about as bad as Blizzard quest design gets; low # of total spawns + long distances between spawns + horrid drop rate = hair-tearing frustration. Nobody likes that.

    It’d be best if you simply removed the quest from the list and advised people against taking it. With the new exp adjustments in place you won’t miss the exp, and will probably earn more simply grinding it out rather than race between the scarce vulture spawns.

    Medicine quest in STVThe quest that that goblin lying under the boat in Booty Bay used to be impossible to solo, but the waves have been nerfed quite a bit these days. 3 waves, 1 lvl 41 gorilla, than a lvl 44 gorilla, followed by the final one, a lvl 44 again. Since it gives around 8000exp, I think it would be good to implement that into the revamped guide 🙂

    Swamp Of Sorrows.Hey there, been using your guide for a while now.
    I have a suggestion for in Swamp Of Sorrows. After going to the Harborage to pick up the quest called “Draenethyst Crystals” i suggest picking up the quest “Mercy for the Cursed” at Anchorite Avuun at the same time. You have to kill only three Cursed Lost One’s around the same place that you collect the crystals and find the crate.
    After turning it it, it was the quickest 3.9k experience i’ve ever got. You also gain 275 Exodar rep with it which is pretty good.

    Maybe a possibility to add in in the near future revamp.

    Fixes, suggestion for improvementSome suggestions for improvement:
    The quest is named “Tran’rek” not “Tran’rek from Krazek”. The hilighting should be fixed

    I have gathered some info on how to directly start this chapter if you didn’t do the previous chapter. I think it would be very useful to incorporate this sort of info into the guide:
    [37] Goblin Sponsorship. Chain starts in The Shimmering Flats in Thousand Needles as [30] Load Lightening.

    [38] Kurzen’s Mystery – Rebel Camp
    [38] Panther Mastery – Nesingwary’s Expedition. Must complete [31] Panther Mastery and [33] Panther Mastery first. Also in Nesingwary’s Expedition
    [39] “Pretty Boy” Duncan – Booty Bay: Inn
    [41] Raptor Mastery – Nesingwary’s Expedition. Must complete [34] Raptor Mastery and [36] Raptor Mastery first. Also in Nesingwary’s Expedition
    [41] Scaring Shaky – Booty Bay: End of dock
    [41] Venture Company Mining – Booty Bay: Inn. Must complete [35] Singing Blue Shards first, also in Booty Bay: Inn

    Didn’t actually try it, tho, just went off the list of quests at the top of this chapter =)

I went through the guide a few times, and couldn’t find where you said to turn it in at, but im gonna go back to Feathermoon to see if that where I turn it in at, but for future reference(if its not already there, and i just missed it) but I think you should put that in there somewhere just to avoid confusion.

    44 trainer for warlockWhen you complete the quests at 44 in darnassus, and james sends you to train your skills, warlocks have no need to go back to ironforge or stormwind. Do all you auctioning, repairing selling and such in darnassus and fly to ratchet instead of going to IF or SW, you can train your skills and buy the books for your demons over there(thou you can’t unlearn your talents). You should have the flyroute already (if you took it when you did your demon quests and warlock item quests there). trainer is the same guy who you spoke to in the succubus quest.

    Great job !This is the best thing ever

    I had a paladin to 70 myself (Really slow) and then i saw this guide after have lvled many thins a bit up, and then i started with this guide with my shaman, i was lvl 33 when i started. I have just got to 50, and DAMN it was. I coud really get these lvls so fast. Love you for all you work you have done, but its really worth it for us, thanks for it.

    I really can believe how fast you lvl, i dont play so much each day, but still i get 2-3 lvls each day, even when i get higher lvls :jawdrop: :, totally holded the standard, so… THANKS YOU SO MUCH,

    Ps. Seem like i have same luck as you, cause each time you wrote “I was unlucky not to get it” then i didnt get it too, but you just wrote, now lets go.. Hehe

    Where to start?I’m a 45, almost 46 warlock and I’ve just discovered your guide. I find that I’ve done things very differently than you have them ordered and so I’m unsure of where to jump in. I’ve already completed a substantial portion of the quests that you use to get from 46 to 47 and from 47 to 48. It looks like most of where I lost out on was from chapter I of your guide. I was pretty frequently doing quests where the mobs were consistently 3-4 levels higher than me, which is pretty close to the limit of what I can kill. Any recommendations would be excellent help.

    [37] Enroaching WildlifeEven with the Co-ordinates, I couldn’t seem to find Watcher Biggs anywhere! (I could have been looking with my eyes closed though).

    But found him via getting another very easy quest, which gave around 700XP (not a lot, but you dont really do anything))

    When entering Swamp of Sorrows, go North East to Anchorite Avuun Around (26,21), and get the quest Help Watcher Biggs. This the puts a big ? over Watcher Biggs. So just run back to where Biggs should have been (but I couldn’t find him), and now he’s easy to spot, and you get a small amount of XP.

    level 47Hi just wanted too say thanks for this great guide but i found that the quest [48] Fuel for the Zapping. Was very hard for my lvl 47 frost mage since they are imune to all frost damage and i had to spend all my mana just for ONE elemental and that would mean that the quest would take sevral hours too complete. am i doing something wrong or is frost just a bad leveling specc?

      Fév 12, 2008 @ 22:31

      No you’re not doing anythingNo you’re not doing anything wrong, and frost is a great spec to level up with. I’ve done that quest with frost mage a couple of times, it’s quite painful but it certainly doesn’t take hours.

    Worth Doing Swamp of Sorrows?hey jame,

    Great guide iv been leveling a hunter off it fastest iv leveled any char i have played. Since 2.3 has come out iv been able to skip bits of your guide that others have Example ~ Deso but im up to Swamp of Sorrows im level 43 already nearly 44 and im just arriving there now meaning im abit ahead of the guide, was wondering if i should Skip swamp of sorrows or is there quest i need to do for followsons later i would skip it if someone had asked this question but yea no one seems to have Skipped swamps of sorrow and possibly later on ppl may ask this so yea was worth asking now? so yea what do you suggest im nearly level 44 and just getting into the Swamps? Skip or Do it?

      There aren’t any big questThere aren’t any big quest lines involving Swamps of Sorrows at this level besides the Cortello’s Riddle line, which is nice exp in the end, so it’s up to you really. If you’re far ahead in exp, you can skip it, it’s not the most important quest hub by far.

    Suggestion in the HinterlandsPick up the quest, Preying on the Predators when you first begin in the Hinterlands.

    10 of the mangy wolfs can be killed on your way to Shindigger’s camp/ruins of Zun’watha.

    5 of the bigger wolfs can easily be killed on your way to/around the ruins of Hiri’watha. Then you just go on about your merry way on the guide and turn it in when you port back to the inn. Turn in the quest for an additional 5300 exp and some nice rep.

    Additional Swamp of Sorrows QuestJame,

    First off, AWESOME guide, I really appreciate the work you’ve done to put this together, I signed back in after 6 months of inactivity to get my pally finally to 70 (after sitting at 66 for 6 months). I enjoyed doing your guide so much, i’m now leveling a Shammy. Anyhow, here’s an additional idea for another quest in Swamp of Sorrows:

    [quote]Level 41

    1) Go to Stormwind.
    Go to the Dwarven District and get the quest [43] In Search of the Temple (Elite) from Brohann Caskbelly inside a house in the Dwarven District (63,24).[/quote]

    [b]Next go to just south of the entrance of The Stockades and talk to Mazen Mac’Nadir and get the quest Mazen’s Behest (40,63). Walk upstairs and get the follow-up quest.[/b]

    [quote]You can find Spiders, Jaguars and Young Crocolisks in the whole area of swamps north of Watcher Biggs. Complete the quest and then go back to him, get the follow up [35] The Lost Caravan.[/quote]

    [b]Go north to the Misty Valley (13,35)[/b]

    [b]Kill Swampwalker’s Elder (I killed 4 before it dropped) until you complete Mazen’s Behest.[/b]

    [quote]Go east to the Harborage (26,31).[/quote]

    [quote]In Nethergarde keep, find Quartermaster Lungertz and turn in

    [40] The Lost Supplies
    [42] Deliver the Shipment[/quote]

    [b]Find Watcher Mahar Ba and turn in
    [41] Mazen’s Behest (4600 XP)[/b]

    [quote]Find the Gryphon Master and fly back to Stormwind.[/quote]

      [41] Mazen’s BehestDear james, I would just like to say how i appreciate your guide sooo much. It is by far the best guide out there. I am currently leveling my 3rd alt off this guide, it has helped so much. I would just like to say that for the quest [41] Mazen’s Behest you might need to give the note it is bad drop rate. When I did the quest i grinded half of the level on those elder somthing, just to get it to drop. I thought about abandoning the quest but I made sure that i finished it. Any way, Thanks heaps for the guide, really appreciate it

    • img
      Mar 20, 2008 @ 23:52

      Something likeSomething like this:

      Start with the combat tree until you get Suprise Attacks, then go for the Assassination tree.

      Of course, replace sword spec by mace spec if you’re using maces.
      Try to have the slowest possible main-hand (Mace or Sword) and the fastest possible off-hand (most likely gonna be a dagger).

    Swamp of Sorrows.Get the quest [35] Draenethyst Crystals from Magtoor.

    That’s a Horde quest I think? Cuz I was not able to pick it up instead a quest where I had to find the wizards thing and kill 3 huge guys, Lost Ones something. You’re also not mentioning the Pool of Tears quest I can assume it’s because of how time consuming it actually is unless you are druid / undead /warlock?

    Anyway, thanks alot for this guide. My rogue is about to become the 6th char i’ve used ur guide.

      Oh, my bad. I thought thisOh, my bad. I thought this was the revamped guide xD. Also, if you didn’t already know about the Pool of Tears quest this is what I did;

      before going to pick up wood at the shore by murlocs I went to Pool of Tears and did a whole circuit outside the Pool and managed to find 5 artifacts, on my way back to hand in tree quest I did another run and completed the quest. Easiest 6k and 1.5g ever xD

    Revamp Releases?Hey Jame, thanks alot for your leveling guides. I have been using them since January 2006 ish, and they have been alot of help. At one point, I bought Brian Kopp’s, totally not worth it. Your guides are awesome. I just have a few questions:

    Firstly, do you need any help making the guide revamps and/or WotLK?

    When are the revamps for 40-50 and 50 – 60 scheduled for release?

    Finally, how do you pronounce your name? Is is Jamie? Jame? or James. And are you male? These have been bugging me alot for the last year or so. Haha

    Again thanks, look forward to hearing back from you.

    • img
      Mar 20, 2008 @ 23:30

      Thank you, glad you like theThank you, glad you like the guides.

      No release date for the last 2 revamps, probably within the next two months.

      We don’t really need help at the moment for the guides, aside from people testing them and pointing out mistakes 🙂

      As for the other question: I personally pronounce it Jame, like James but without the s at the end. And yes, male.

    20k more XP on the second hinterlands loopAdditions to the second Hinterlands loop (Altar of Zul):

    Altogether, these give about an extra 20k XP for negligible extra time.

    From Ambassador Rualeth in Aerie Peak, get:
    [46] Featherbeard’s Endorsement
    [46] A Gesture of Goodwill

    Start looking for another person for Altar of Zul (it’s soloable but much easier with two, especially with CC). Head directly south to Featherbeard’s Hovel, at 13,55. Go inside, turn in and get the followup [46] In Pursuit of Featherbeard from the book on the mantel.

    Continue west along the mountains towards the Altar of Zul. At 25,66 there is a cave with Witch Doctor Mai’jin and his pet Tcha’kaz. Kill them both.

    Keep going west until you reach Shandra’Alor (just south of the Altar of Zul). Go up the easternmost Temple, where you’ll find a body. Turn in, get the followup [46] Reclaiming the Eggs. Don’t go down the stairs – go to the southern edge of the ledge you’re on. You should see a mob there. Kill it, and loot the 1-3 eggs it was guarding. Now go down to the lake. There are 1-3 eggs at the altar on the edge of it. Go to the southern temple, to the quest giver for ST. Get the quest if you’re going to run ST, and loot the eggs there.

    If you still need another egg, there is another spot at the very north eastern corner of Shandra’Alor, up the hill. These eggs are guarded by 3 or 4 mobs though, so it might just be quicker to run Altar of Zul now and come back for the respawned eggs.

    After completing Altar of Zul, turn in [46] Reclaiming the Eggs and [46] A Gesture of Goodwill at Ambassador Rualeth. Altogether, you should get around 20k XP at this level for those 4 quests.

      I highly agreeI highly agree with these additions. When I started 46, I completed everything up until the point where Jame tells us to grind on trolls until you’re a bubble away from 47. The only problem with that is that I only ended up getting halfway through 46, which amounts to an awful lot of grinding. These few quests being added in really give you a much needed boost.

    Avr 11, 2008 @ 1:19

    Great guideThanks Jamie! Great guide. I’ve done other guides & tried grinding before and this guide hits the mark, missing out the crap quests and mentioning all the good grinding spots 🙂
    Chapter 3 here I come.

    *Can 48.12 & 49.1 be merged? We’re sent to stormwind twice for a quest thats availible from lvl 46.
    *48.11 – Passing the Burden? The quest is picked up then not mentioned at the start of chapter 3.
    *41.3 – Nagas are orange to a 41. I fixed this by going back to dustwallow marsh and doing every quest you didn’t mention (in chapter 1) to ding 42.
    *47.3 – Godrocs are a mixture of orange and yellow and agro from miles away. A warning would be appreciated.

    Keep up the good work ^^

    One Major CriticismI love this guide. I’m at 5 days played, at level 50 finally, and I have about 1 day of time that was wasted doing nothing.

    One major criticism I have, especially for this section of the guide is the Blasted Lands quests.

    The quests from the two Blood Elves:
    [50] A Boar’s Vitality
    [50] Snickefang Jowls
    [50] The Basilisk’s Bite
    [50] The Decisive Striker
    [50] Vulture’s Vigor

    The vultures not only have an insanely low drop rate, something like 10% for a Gizzard, maybe even less than 10%, but your vulture spawn points are inaccurate. I understand you’re working on a revamp, but you might as well change that section and take out the heavy vulture quests, tell people to only take Boar’s Vitality and Snickefang Jowls only, because the vulture intensive quests are just too much of a time sink. It took me 3 and a half hours and I still haven’t completed gathering the vulture Gizzards.

    Not to mention, I would’ve rather grinded on mobs that didn’t have such annoying debuffs. Only a few classes can remove disease and vultures have a really annoying -10 int/-10 spi disease that they can refresh on every other hit. Wouldn’t be so bad if it was only a 1 minute, 5 minute or even 10 minute debuff, but this sucker lasts 30 minutes!

    Other than that, great guide and strongly hope to see revamps soon.

    Qiaha and Morta’gyaHello,

    I’ve been following your guide since 30, and I must say, good work! I just wanted to note something, though.

    I just finished [48] The Altar of Zul, From level 46/section 8. Qiaha and Morta’gya, the two mobs at the top of the altar, are not elites. I was able to solo them as a level 47 hunter (I’ve been a level ahead of all the leveling guides for quite some time, even forgoing instances). Although… with all the adds, my pet and I DID die. I was able to make a corpse run before the respawns, though, and was still able to loot the hammer and finish clearing the area when I got back up.

    • img
      Avr 28, 2008 @ 18:14

      Yes, this is one of theYes, this is one of the dozens of quests who were previously elite before patch 2.3
      This will be fixed during the revamp, which should be out within a few weeks.

    Singing blue shards?I just started reading your guide and I was already level 40 so I’ll have to grind to catch up to your level 42 section but I’m confused at the part that says head east at 39,41 and kill goblins for shards? Isn’t that a quest for killing basilisks? I’ve never completed that quest before so I could be wrong…

      If you can’t, it means you are too low on reputation with them, so you must work your reputation up to neutral, by killing pirats outside of the town.

    Revamp?Hello, I have recently taken up using your guide from level 30-40 and find them to be wonderful, thanks to them I’ve managed to make it from level 32 to 35 easily with two of my alts in a matter of hours. I am wondering when the revamp of this guide will be finished as I’ve noticed you mention it would be done in a few days, maybe a realistic date or something? I would really like to get my priest and mage from their current level (42) to 50 as soon as I can, though then I’d likely find myself waiting on the 50-58/60 revamp I’d still like to know I’m closer to the outlands and eventually raiding with a class more-needed. I currently only have my level 70 rogue, a class far too abundant on my server.

    News For Fizzle / Martek The ExiledYou’ve got a gap missing from what I can tell but let me know if I’m wrong. It appears that in the previous chapter you introduce a quest called Martek the Exiled while should take the player to Badlands. In this chapter you have the player submitting a quest called News For Fizzle (Level 43, Section 4) which is the next quest in the chain after Martek The Exiled. What’s missing is the journey to Badlands, the submitting of Martek The Exiled, and the receiving of the follow up quest.

    Just submitting this minor glitch.

    Skipping Swamp of SorrowsHey Jame,

    In level 42, section 6 you’ve got people going to Swamp of Sorrows for awhile to clear away a series of green quests and finish the level. I found that I easily hit 43 before going to Swamp. I’m not sure why this was but it wasn’t all bonus. In any event, you might want to put in a little disclaimer at the beginning of section 6 that if players have already hit level 43, they can largely skip Swamp of Sorrows by quickly visiting the temple at location 10, then wandering over to Nethergarde Keep to get the flight path, then continuing on to Stormwind to continue. This will also mean that they can cancel Mazen’s Behest from their quest list if they’re skipping that section. Pretty much all of the quests in that section begin and end at either Swamp of Sorrows or Nethergarde Keep.

    Hope that helps.

    Why 41?Maybe this has been asked before, but your first guide only takes you to 40, and chapter II starts at 41. Why is this? Did I miss something?

    Level 46 CorrectionIn level 46 you ask people to grind on trolls until being one bubble away from 47, at which point they can turn in some quests. You can actually have them stop grinding at 3 bubbles away from 47. After turning in quests, you end up being 2.5 bubbles into 47.

    Goblin Sponsorship missing sectionHi,

    Thanks firstly for the guides which have been most useful.
    I have just last night found a missing section for the [b]Goblin Sponsorship[/b] quest line.

    At Level 42, section 2 you hand in [b]Goblin Sponsorship[/b] and take the follow up.

    The next time the guide mentions this quest is in Level 43 section 4, when you hand in to POZZIK. This is not possible (as i found it) without first visiting MARTEK THE EXILED in Badlands and doing the [b]Indurium Ore[/b] and [b]News for Fizzle [/b]
    quests. This then unlocks the [b]Keeping Pace from Pozzik[/b] quest.

    I have had a brief flick through the comments, but havent seen anyone mention it. Perhaps its staring me in the face but I am sure I havent seen Martek mentioned.

    Tebetha’s QuestsI’m going through the revised guide now and I noticed an omission. When you tell us to turn in [39] Tabetha’s Assistance and get the follow-up you don’t mention getting the quests from the guy next to her (“The Reagent Thief” and “The Grimtotem Weapon”). You do mention doing the objectives for his quests however, so I’m guessing it’s just the mention of picking up the quests that’s missing.

At the beginning you tell us to return to Jaina in Theramore by hearth or flight path. You can instead go to the Archmage Malin at the base of the mage tower in the mage quarter of SW. Talk to him and he will port you right to Jaina.

    Jumping back into the guide.Hey James. I haven’t played in a few months and didn’t keep any of my quests. On top of that, I’m in SW and your guide is updated :jawdrop: I’m lv. 46. Do you think you could give me an area to start your guide at?

    Hmm. Crappy internet + Low RAM = getting owned in every contested area in the game =p

      Mai 29, 2008 @ 16:06

      That’s a tough one

      I guessThat’s a tough one :p

      I guess you should just start at the Hinterland circuit in the level 47 section and go from there. You’ll probably miss a few quests that you abandonned, but it’s ok, because you must have a full rested bonus and you’ll easily stay ahead of the recommended level.

    I like the way you used to do it where on the map it would say 1,3 instead of just the 1.

    TrainersJust before you start the Level 47 portion, you say that if someone is a Paladin, Warlock, or Shaman, they need to head to IF to train. I am not sure about Warlocks, but Paladins and Shaman both could probably go to the Exodar, no?

    If you put in IF just in case someone doesn’t have the expansion, I understand, but remember, no Alliance can be a Shaman without the expansion.

    In other news, thanks for the guide. It is MUCH better than most of the ones that you have to pay for.

    Just thought i would a few things out.Before I start, I have to say I love your guides, I got to 46 in 2 days 8 hours. I have a level 44 that didnt use your guides and just screwed around, 3 days 22 hours /played.

    1.In the Stranglethorn section, you tell us to turn in the Excelsior quest 2 times.
    2. You tell us to go back to gadgetzan and take the flight path to Thalanar (Feralas) which we should have gotten in the previous chapter. I believe that getting this flight path was part of an optional grinding section.
    3. When we first get to Feathermoon stronghold (at level 45) you tell us to get the quest [51]The Sunken Temple which requires us to be level 46 to get.

    Love the guides, keep up the good work 🙂

    Return to JainaThey fixed the quest in patch 2.4.2 so that he says
    “Forgive me, but I am spent and cannot use my magic to send you back Theramore. You have the look of a worldly adventurer about you; surely you know of another way to reach Theramore in time.”

    Two Badlands QuestsWhen you turn in Badlands Reagent Run you should get Uldaman Reagent Run, it’s done outside the instance so it’s easy. Can do it at the same time as Agmond’s Fate, which is right after Murdaloc, so you can pick those up after you turn ’em in for an extra easy 8,700 exp.

    Great GuideNice work, as usual!

    I found one small error: the level requirement for artisan First Aid is 35 (has been for some time now). I invariably do this quest in the late 30s when I’m in Theramore anyway. You might want to throw this into the 30-40 guide, especially since the XP reward seems to be higher before 40 (unconfirmed; give me some time and I’ll try to nail down the truth).

    Since Theramore is a short flight from Gadget I also usually do the artisan cooking quest while I’m at it, although at those levels you’ll probably have to get the droppable quest items via the AH or a higher-level character.

  • img
    Juin 11, 2008 @ 23:28

    Some nice quests…Slight alteration to my previous comment but with some digging I found a lot more:

    When you turn in Badlands Reagent Run, get Uldaman Reagent Run. This is NOT inside the instance proper, and easily soloed. When you turn in Murdaloc, get Agmond’s Fate. Same area as Uldaman Reagent Run, easily soloed. Just south of Murdaloc’s camp there’s a dwarf that gives the quest Solution to Doom; get it, same area, easily soloed. In 15 minutes you can do these quests for an easy 13,050 exp. Also, if you’re lucky like I was, the trash you inevitably have to kill can drop a quest starter, Shattered Necklace, which can be turned in in Ironforge for an extra 4600 exp, bringing the grand total up to 17,650 extra exp.

    Nice discovery imo,

    Whiskey Slim’s Lost GrogHey, love the guides. One thing I’ve wondered, however, is why I can find no mention of Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog. The Pupellyverbos Port is found around where you find Gammerita and Cortello’s Chest, and we’ll be dropping back by Booty Bay afterward. I don’t think it’s a huge amount of XP, but at level 49 the quest is still yellow for me, and it only takes a couple of extra minutes.

    Your my hero :DWhen I first started playing wow think it was 2 or 3 years ago (dont remember -.-) I was this sad litle druid running around looking at the enviroment and spamming guild chat with questions of were i should level how to complete Qs etc.. Then one day when asking in trad chanel for a change 😀 a complete stranger told me to go to this site and ofcourse I did but i couldn’t get into the guide since i didn’t see the point in farming a whole level. When tbc came I started playing a dranei priest and had almost forgoten about this site and when i reached lvl 70 i had about 15 days played. (mainly becaus i just spent my time looking for groups to instances since it was the best way i knew). Well i got sick of playing at level 70 pretty fast so started my mage and then when I reached level 30 something reminded me of this and i started using the guide and it got me from 30-70 in about 8 days of played time (that’s with me going back boostin and such) and now I’m leveling my third char and just completed this section and landing on level 52 (never bother to look for groups just get a high level to help me) so just wanted to tell my story and say you’ve changed my way of playing wow totaly so now I can spend more time enyoy playing than strugle with the levels =D you and snowflake rocks can’t wait to see you in Wotlk. keep up the good work!

In booty bay theres the quest “Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog” obtained by Whiskey Slim in the inn I think, and the 12 bottles you have to pick up are in the exact same area as the “Super Snapper FX” quest, so you can easily do it while doing that.

    Dosent work for meHi, I’ve been using your leveling guide since level 30 and for some reason I’m always off from about half a level all the time. Once I’m done all the mentioned quests in the guide I need to grind for half my level in XP to catch up to the guide and then it’s the same thing over and over every level after that. I was wondering if the guide was up to date. I’m now level 43 and once again I need to go grind to catch up. I level alone and take every quest mentioned in the guide and do it in order. Any tip would be appreciated here. Thank you.

    • img
      Juin 30, 2008 @ 18:23

      I’m not sure how that couldI’m not sure how that could be, since I actually follow the guides myself, with zero exp bonus while I’m writing them, and always calculate every level with a generous extra 5% XP to make sure nobody falls behind.

      What could be the reason:

      1. You must play with no exp bonus at all
      2. You must be trying really hard to kill the minimum of mobs every quest needs. Are you a stealther? (rog or druid).
      3. You must be extremely lucky with quest drops.
      4. You skipped a few quests by mistake.

      Anyway, don’t grind, just keep following the guide and when there’s an optional circuit, do it.

      • img
        Juil 2, 2008 @ 7:23

        No wayMust have skipped some quests or something. I’m a druid, I always stealth and kill the minimum, and never have an xp bonus, and I’m 3 levels ahead of the guide after starting at exactly 40 at the beginning of the guide. I’ve also skipped some quests, but still manage to be ahead by that much. Something is definitely wrong there.

    Good job guys!to Jame and Snowflake, thank you! i have just started playing WoW and i found it very easy leveling with your guides. already level 48 in 4days played and im still on the level 44 part of the guide. been doing minimmal instancing but when i find good spots to grind, i take the opportunity and maximize my efficiency. anyway i would just like to suggest that at every level section of the guide, it would be really wonderful if you’d place a “quest log update”. just a list of all the quests your on and a (complete) if they are already done. this would really help alot. i just screwed up by reading some class guide so i respecced to prot, drop some quests, and went grinding. when i found that my exp/hr dropped by more than 10k exp/hr, i wanted to /cry cause i dont know where to start again. ive done most of the quests up until the the beggining of swamp of sorrows. can i possibly jump to somewhere near 48 and possibly get non-chain quests?

    Thanks again, you guys are really doing a wonderful job.

    I’m new to the guide and have something to askHey, I personally think your guide is very well written and thought out. I’ve taken a look at it but not too much in depth as I literally just joined. However at first I find a few things rather confusing due to the fact I haven’t followed this guide at all for 40 levels. My question is, where should I start? I’m a levl 40 warlock who doesnt have those quests you are talking about turning in, so i’m wondering where i should get started to get on track. Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

      Start at level 40, ignoreStart at level 40, ignore the quests you miss, you’ll catch up at some point anyway. If you haven’t done any quests in Stranglethorn Vale though, I suggest you do the first circuits from the previous chapter, there are very long chains in this zone, like the panther/raptor/tiger mastery, and the bloodsail buccaneers chain. Would be a shame to miss those, so you should at least try to catch up on those. Ignore the rest.

      What should you do?What should you do? Nothing!

      Keep doing whatever you were doing. Being ahead of the guide is GOOD. Only skip quests if they are grey to you.

    Map FragmentsDuring the quest [45] Southsea shakedown, 6 pirate lockers dropped for me in a row, one with the ship schedule and the rest had map fragments. I put them together and clicked for a quest which was [45] Cuergo’s Gold. Just some advice to anyone else who gets the fragments, the quest is a complete waste and a pain to do. Getting to the location takes forever, you get attacked by 5 level 45 mobs, and the quest doesn’t reward any xp bonus. Also the item reward really isn’t good either, a green or two, maybe a blue if you get lucky.

    Great helpThanks for the effort you’ve made to put this guide together. At the end of 40-50 guide I was 53, but probably due to being completely rested to start with, and catching up on a couple of quests at the beginning. The guide is easy to follow, and prevents the feelings of frustration when you’re missing one item which prevents you from completing a quest then and there, and when you have to go back to the same area multiple times because you didn’t realise another quest you could’ve picked up would send you to the same area.

    A thing to note.Great guide! It makes wow seem so much easier.

    I just wanted to note something. You should add when you get to Nethergarde Keep to buy the beer you need later in (Hellfire,Outlands) and save it in the bank.

    Little thing but will help save time =P

    Correction in Badlands CircuitIn the Badlands circuit, when you’re looking for the Battered Dwarven Skeleton, in the map you marked the spot as a 7 when it should be an 8. 7 should be where Prospecor Ryedol is.

    If you say plz because it is shorter than please, then I will say no because it is shorter than yes.

    Just wanted to share a goodJust wanted to share a good quest with everyone that appears to have been left off. When you are back in STV (42-44) There is a quest from Captain Smott the pier. ( ) This used to be a level 47 elite and was of course left off, but now is only a level 42 elite. The mob isn’t far outside of the BB Exit, and I was able to get there and back again without even engaging other mobs.

    Perhaps this might still be too hard for the melee classes, but for a caster, I was able to kill with barely even being swung at, just need to use all your long-cool down abilities. For this, there was (550xp from the mob, another 5-6k from the quest I think) and a pretty nice caster bracer (at the time).

    Hope this is beneficial to people.

    Stuck :Hi im a 44Rogue on EU
    I Been Doing This Guide Till 40, I Was 34 When i found it.. but i Could’nt Seem to jump in and find my place, So i Leveled alone.. I’ve Been ok.. But some Bits im Worryed About, @ level 44 I Was Half a Level Behind the Guide And had to have a Boost in ZF Till i Dinged.

    Also I didnt Have The Swamp of Sorrows Quest the Soggy Scroll under the bridge?..

    Also These :;:
    Go northwest until you get to an area called The Bloodfen Burrow. Go west, clear your way into the cave and you should see a scroll on a stone with a question mark over it. Click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [51]Cortello’s Riddle. <-- I Could;nt pick up that Scroll it was there but i couldnt?

    In Gadgetzan:
    Turn in [45] Tran'Rek, don't get the follow up <-- Dont have it?

    • img
      Juil 18, 2008 @ 17:58

      The soggy scroll in SwampsThe soggy scroll in Swamps of Sorrows is for the quest cortello’s riddle, which you should have gotten from the pirate ships in Stranglethorn vale, as described in the guide (there’s even a video for this section).

      It’s not a big deal if you’re behind in levels, but it proves that you’ve been skipping quests, so you should try to read the guide more carefully to avoid missing XP like that.

      Ouch Well it’s up toOuch 😛 Well it’s up to everyone to abandon it if they don’t like it. Some people like to do as many quests as possible, even if it means painful grinding for a rare drop, so I’m letting it in, but really, feel free to abandon it if it annoys you ^^

    Morrowgrain in FethermoonJust thought I would add this. If you do the Morrowgrain at some point before the guide tells you, there is another Morrowgrain quest in Fethermoon worth 6800 xp. I just bought 20 of them from the AH (for about 10g total) and did both quests. Turned in the second right before 50 when I handed in improved quality. This may not be worthy of an update to the guide, but I figured I would mention it.

    Keep up the great work.

      Yes, this used to be in myYes, this used to be in my old version, but after much consideration I’ve just decided to remove the whole morrowgrain quests from the guide, because it can be really annoying if you’re unlucky with combines, and on top if fills your bags with crap :p

      And that’s why boostingAnd that’s why boosting doing regular quests is just bad 😛 If someone boosts you through instances it’s all good, since when you are on your own again you still have all the solo quests available to you, but this…

      I don’t know what to tell you. Do the Swamp of Sorrows circuit (and before that, go get cortello’s riddle from the pirate ships in booty bay, if you don’t have it already), then just follow my guide and skip the areas you’ve already done.

    Fantastic GuideThis has really helped me to boost my the leveling of my Shaman. The only thing I find is that often I am gaining levels far before you’re stating “Congratz, you’re now level XX” In these cases, I try to keep my eye ahead of the guide and if it tells me to go back to Ironforge (or whatever) sell/repair/restock when I reach level XX and then move on to a new area. I will complete any quests that I’m currently doing, turn in anything I’ve completed and abandon the rest. Otherwise, I might find later on that I’m 5 levels ahead of the guide and not getting the XP that I should.

    level 47 changeOn level 47, you say that the Captain’s Chest is on the bottom level of the boat. I found it on the middle level. It wasn’t hard to find, but might want to correct the guide none the less.

    Would it be possible to make a block for each level describing which quests you are having us do, what prereqs it has, and what followups you will have us do? I’m leveling in rested only, so I’m constantly getting ahead of the guide. It’d be nice to know when I can skip something, and when I can’t (I skipped Goblin Sponsorship by accident… paid for that one). It’d also be very useful for people dovetailing themselves into the guide. Some of that information is available in thottbot, but a significant number of them have false prereqs (not part of the “quest line,” but you still have to do them to get the quest). I started to try to do it myself (and then post in a comment), but there’s a lot of quests which are just listed as “get the folowup to [NN] XXX.” If you could even just give a comprehensive quest list for each level, I’d help with the research!

    Great guide! I’m using it simultaneously for 4 characters. And its awesome that you’re actively maintaining it! I haven’t seen a good suggestion yet which you didn’t reply to!

    Level 45First off, I know you’ve heard it a millions times, but excellent guides! I’ve used many, including iDemises mapmod guide, and yours is by far the best one!

    In the beginning of the level 45 section, you have us fly to Menethil and boat to Theramore from stormwind, it might be useful to note that if you didn’t turn in the “Return to Jaina” quest, as you advised us not no 🙂 You can simply visit the mage at the bottom of the tower in stormwind and port to Theramore 🙂

      Sep 8, 2008 @ 16:39

      About yourThank you!

      About your suggestion, sadly they’ve changed this, the unlimited free port SW -> Theramore doesn’t work anymore as soon as the quest Return to Jaina becomes grey in your quest log, so now I just tell people to turn it in in the previous guide to get the full xp reward.

    pirate’s footlockerJame I was doing the quests [45] Southsea Shakedown and [45] Pirate Hats Ahoy! when I found that instead of the Shipment Schedule you said would come out of the footlocker I got map fragments.

      Sep 8, 2008 @ 16:45

      Yea, vendor them or try toYea, vendor them or try to sell them at the Gadgetzan AH. This quest is not worth the trouble.

      You have to get 3 Map Fragments, combine them to start the quest and then you have to go all the way down in Tanaris, a long and boring trip, then you get attacked by 5 pirates and you get to loot a treasure chest with a couple of random green items and some booze. It’s a fun quest you might want to do once, but if leveling fast is your concern, don’t do it.

    Unecessary hearthDuring the 45-46 bracket you tell us to make Theramore our home location, fly to Mudsprocket, hearth to Theramore, then fly to gadgetzan and bind. There is a Flight Path in mudsprocket though, and i find it unneeded to bind in theramore at all. Great job on the guide though!

    • img
      Sep 9, 2008 @ 11:20

      Nah, it’s not entirelyNah, it’s not entirely unecessary. Sure it’s not very useful, but it still saves a few minutes.

      The hearthstone is not used within the next hour anyway, so it saves a trip from the cave back to Mudsprocket, plus the flight path Mudsprocket -> Gadgetzan goes through Theramore, so that’s another minute or so saved.

    Badlands suggestions#4 Only fight Lesser Elementals. When you get the quest completed, get the followup and then go to approx 14,36 where there are a number of “Rock Elementals” which drop the Large Stone Slabs… which I have found to be 100% drop rate from these the 2 times I have done this.

    #10 Try to only fight the Dustbelcher Mauler (not shaman or wyrmslayers) since it seems like the drop rate seems better for this one.

        Whiskey Slim’s Lost GrogThe name of the quest is “Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog”. See (or your favorite WoW database site.)

        It is given in Booty Bay, in the inn, IIRC. You gather items on the same stretch of coast where you photograph Gammerita.

        It is a very easy quest. Free XP.

    ive been following everything uve said since level 44 and ive leveled to level 50 in the time it took me to get to level 44(1 1/2 years!!):jawdrop: ….

    anyways i am posting this comment to suggest a shorter way from darnassus to gadgetzan, because you tell us to fly for about 7 minutes to get there. well if u are in darnassus fly to darkshore and take a boat to menethil harbor, then take a boat to theramore and then fly to gadgetzan. it took me about half the time it takes to fly all the way from darnassus to there.
    just a suggestion it is your guide…..

      Thanks for the suggestion.Thanks for the suggestion. Well, while it’s true that it’s a little faster by taking 2 flight pathes and 2 boat rides instead of 1 big flight path here, it’s certainly more bothersome. The nice thing about long flight pathes is that you can go afk for a while and get some things done, like I don’t know, taking your dog out or baking cookies ^^.

      That’s why I sometimes don’t mind putting long flight pathes in the guide, so people can take a break 😛

    i am running low on money and my bro has started a guild so i was wondering if you no any good, free money making guides that could help me.


    P.S. great guide
    P.P.S forgot to tell you that i am lvl 45 dwarf pally 🙂

    • img
      Sep 13, 2008 @ 10:05 There are a lot of money making guides there, I’m sure you’ll find one that fits your level/class if you browse through the list.

      I can give you this quick tip though:

      [*]Take mining and level it. Sell the ore on the AH, you’ll make loads of money. At your level you would be able to mine mithril already, which can sometimes sell for 20g a stack depending on your server/faction.
      [*]Same thing goes for skinning, it’s a decent source of money nowadays, not as good as mining though, as demand is lower.
      [*]At your level, you can grind mobs which give you xp and drop mageweave cloth. Mageweave cloth sells insanely well nowadays (sold some stacks for 6g, sometimes even for 11g)

  • img
    Sep 14, 2008 @ 22:13

    Pristine Yeti HideI think you should drop the advice to grind for the Pristine Yeti Hide. Turning in that quest rewards ZERO XP, and I had to clear the yeti cave about 5 times to get it.

      Well, first of all, let meWell, first of all, let me just tell you that being ahead of my guide in levels is actually a good thing, so don’t worry about it. Unless the quests make you kill grey mobs, you shouldn’t skip anything. Just skip the optional circuits when there are some. If the quests are grey, what you can do is quickly check if the quest has a follow up (or several follow ups). If it doesn’t, just abandon the quest and move on.

      Just use the search function (CTRL + F) and type the name of the quest and you’ll quickly find out if it’s part of a chain or not. You can also look that up on

      Hope it helps.

    ….and Bugs!I did this quest during the Swamp of Sorrows circuit after completing Pool of Tears. Simply ride east to the coast and kill crawlers till you get 12 Pristine Crawler Legs. Very soon after that you go to Theramore anyway where you can turn it in.

    No Teleports! :([b]Go talk to Jaina and ask her to teleport you to Stormwind[/b]

    This is no longer possible.. At least i couldnt do it

    Go to Theramore. If you got the quest [37] Return to Jaina, [b]go to the Mage Quarter at the western end of Stormwind and speak with Archmage Malin at the foot of the tower there, he will teleport you to Theramore.[/b] When in Theramore, this time turn in [37] Return to Jaina

    The fat text : i dont think its possible after 2,4 =(

    And at the start you say
    [b]Before starting to follow the guide, I highly recommend that you get your level 40 mount.[/b] There will be more and more traveling the higher in levels we get. It will save you a tremendous amount of time in the long run

    The fat text: The mount is now after 2,4 lvl 30 =)

    Thanks for the nice guildance! ^^

      Are you sure you had the quest at this point when following my guide?

      Oct 15, 2008 @ 23:00

      No TeleportsIn case anybody doesn’t know, King Varian Wrynn is back in Stormwind, so the quest to warn Bolvar is (apparently) no longer available. As a matter of fact, I can’t find Bolvar anywhere. Maybe he’s on the island now.

    Featherbeard’s MapHey, I’m in Ch. 3 (50-60) now and I still had Featherbeard’s map in my inventory. Thott’d it and apparently you could’ve thrown this away after turning in the quest Reclaiming the Eggs.

    Once again, let me say, I luv the guides, but I wish you’d tell us when we can throw away or bank stuff. ATM (somewhere between lvl 52-53) in my bags, I have Threshadon stuff that I could have banked, Linken’s sword, a violet tragan, a stone circle, and would you believe I even have a translated letter from the embalmer from darkshire (don’t know if this came from the guides tho). All of this junk could’ve been garbage or banked instead of having to destroy soulstones when I’m out of space. It’d be awesome if you could jot those down every now and then. You know how much extra space costs in WoW. 😉 Thanks.

    Where to startHello Jame.

    I have followed your guide’s for a long time now, not to every word, off and on.

    The time has come to level my rogue seriously; I have reached level 41 and I cannot seen to find an appropriate place to start the guide, considering it has been on the same circuit since the last chapter (30-40) and if I try to find the beginning of the circuit or a pickup point, the quests are mainly green and very low rewarding. Help please?

      Skip the Badlands circuits, go straight to the Booty Bay part. In Booty Bay try to catch up if you miss some of the pre-quests and then from there you should be fine.

    Found a great quest for ya, Jame!First off, I must say I love the guide, and am currently at 44, killing the nagas outside BB. Here’s the thing- I found a great quest that fits in well with everything. Its called “Sweet Amber” , and involves looting a fountain right next to the place where we kill the naga’s. You get the quest from an npc near the Deadmines, all the way over in Westfall though. However, it is an easy quest and i highly reccomend it. I hope you see this!

    Great Guide; Help Starting?Well I am a lvl 41 human rogue,(almost lvl 42) and a player in-game told me about your guide. I looked it up and liked what I saw. So I picked up at the badlands section. Found out i dont have most of the chains. Then I looked ahead and saw STV. Well. I had already done many of the quests in it.(lvl 43) I have done all the mastery quests but the bosses (just because I couldnt find em). There are still many to do in BB, can I pick up here? Thanks.

      Yes, ignore the badlandYes, ignore the badland circuit. Start at the Booty Bay circuit. Ignore the quests you can’t get (or try to get the pre-quests if it’s not too much running around. You should get back on track soon.

        Oct 22, 2008 @ 5:39

        Alright. 1 more thing.K I hit 42. Left Badlands and picked up all the remaining quests in BB. When im finished im expecting to be nearly 43 so i will grind the rest of the way. So far my /played is 5 days 15 hours. Which is rediculously high for my level. (but my excuse is i stopped to twink at 19) [yes I twinked my main] [yes it worked]. How much time is the estimate to get to level 50? Also. Your mining tip to get gold fast really works. I made at least 100 gold by just IRON in about an hour. But a better tip is on my server at least (Kel’Thuzad) Iron sells more effectively in bar form. (30g per stack). Just a tip. Thanks again.

        • img
          Oct 22, 2008 @ 9:38

          Don’t bother grinding.Don’t bother grinding. You’ll catch up to the recommend level of my guide without grinding, I’ve made it that way 😛

          Levels between 40 and 50 generally take me about an hour and a half of /played, without rested bonus. So from 43 to 50, I’d say you’ll need about 10 hours /played if you follow my guides well.

    Badlands circutfirst off I just want to say thank you so much for all of your hard work and continued updating it really is amazing.

    I realize that you are probably spending most of your time on the new guides to help all of us lvl from 70-80 but when you get a chance you need to fix either the end to the 30-40 guide or the 2nd part of the 40-50 guide because as far as i can see they are the exact same circuit luckily i am lvling 2 toons at the same time (one using your guide and another using zygor’s lvling guide, btw yours is faster by 4 hours so far to lvl 40 🙂 and because of this i was a few lvls ahead of your guide due to rested exp but anyways its something for you to look into.

    Whiskey Slim’s Lost GrogThe quest that the guy was talking about below that involves collecting the Port is Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog. You collect 12 bottles of port on the beach around Gammerita. It’s easy and only takes a minute, you can do it between doing the Super Snapper quest and collecting the chest from Cortello’s Riddle.

    You get it from whiskey slim at Booty Bay in and can turn the quest in when you go to Booty Bay to turn the Robot Chicken quests and that one you turn into Mackinley.

    HaiYeah. Like most the other people here, I want to thank you for making this guide. D: It has been a vision of holy light and purity on the darkness that was once leveling.


    Anyway.. for some unfathomable reason, I cannot loot Cortello’s Riddle back on the ships in Stranglethorn Vale. I don’t really get it.. I’ve gone to all three ships multiple times and clicked on the scroll, and nothing comes up in the loot box thing. Will it hurt me a lot if I just.. skip it? ._.

    Free 6500 + 875 xp!Hello!

    First of all, I’d like to thank you for making these leveling guides, they have been a tremendous help and have saved me much time.

    I wanted to mention a quest in Blasted Lands that is not in your guide. In the Level 50 part after you turn in [47] Thadius Grimshade or [47] Nekrum’s Medaillon, the other mage in the tower has a quest called Petty Squabbles. All you need to do for this quest is go to the border between Blasted Lands and Swamp of Sorrows and talk to the Horde ghost. I was level 51 when I did this and I got 6500xp, plus another 875 for the quick follow-up where you have to listen to his speech. It only takes a minute and you won’t risk running out of time on the egg quest.

    Thanks again for your great guides!

    Great guide Jame, but I have a problem.First of all, I wanted to say that this guide is fantastic — I’ve been using it since level 30 and never looked back. Great job on this. Just a couple of things that are troubling me:

    1. My most primary concern is that I am way too far ahead of the guide — I’m level 44 (and about halfway to 45) and I’m just beginning the level 41 circuit. Many of the quests are gray or green to me, and it’s starting to become a problem. What should I do? Is there a part that you recommend skipping that wouldn’t give me problems later?

    2. Some of the quests and locations for stuff have changed since 3.0, like for example Jaina Proudmoore’s quests. I am eagerly awaiting the next revamping of this guide to remedy things like that.

    Otherwise, you’re doing a great job, and I hope you keep doing what you’re doing!

    where to startThis seems like a well written guide and im willing to give it a shot, but im a little confused where to start. Im lvl43 and I just dont know where to start, because you have quests from earlier lvls to hand in and do. Also, if i have already done a quest thats in the lvl 43 or 44 section, should i just skip that quest?

    destress beaconsJust wanted to add my two cents from a rogues point of view. When I did the quest [45] Find OOX-22/FE! I would stay just ahead of the chicken as it walked for the first ambush. I would pull all the aggro and the chicken kept walking. So I vanished. I had to fight the second ambush which was easy, then by the time the third ambush came i was able to vanish again, saving me a long fight and I didn’t have to worry about the chicken dying. Hope this helps every other rogue out there.

    Great!Hey Jame, this is a great guide. I never knew about until I got my main to 70 and my friend told me that it was awesome. So since I’d had a level 28 lock, I got him to 30, and used the guide. It’s amazing. I leveled at least three times as fastr as my main. Thanks so much. But on the end of level 44, in Swamp of Sorrows, you said to go to Harborage and get [43] Pool of Tears, but nothing else from there. But, I took another quest called Mercy For The Cursed. It involves going to Fallow Sanctuary, just a bit north of the Temple of Atal’Hakkar and killing 3 Cursed Lost Ones, which aren’t hard to find. I was just wondering why this wasn’t included, because it’s quick, and after you do it you can just go a bit south to get the Artifacts.

    Minor detail for hunterAs you’ve heard before.. Very very nice leveling guide.. i’m on my 5th toon (4th following your guide), this time a hunter. In lvl 40, step 5, you write there is some difficulties with hunter. An easier way of doing it is just to shoot mob, drop totem, let pet tank as usual untill 10% life, then distracting shot, and you get the kill!

    Another thing; in the 30-40 guide, the quest “[37] Warn Bolvar!” wasn’t available when i got to that point. I searched it on wowhead to see what i had done wrong, but it didn’t exist.. This means that the follow up in SW isn’t available either.. I haven’t been able to find out if it was changed in a patch or something like that.

    incorporate new quest in hinterlandsJust a quick idea for incorporating a quest into the hinterlands. The quest “[50] Whiskey Slim’s Lost Grog” can be taken from Booty Bay lvl 44 after step 7.. You have to gather 12 Pupellyverbos Port in hinterlands, along the beach, which we visit anyways in step 4 lvl 48.. It can be handed in along with the chicken quest.

    A little extra for LeatherworkersHi James, I’m on the lv 45 part of your guide and so far it’s been going great. I just got to Feathermoon Stronghold and I noticed something you may want to make a note of in your guide.

    Pratt McGrubben, the same NPC that gives “The Mark of Quality” quest you tell us to get also has a seires of Leatherworking quests to learn to make various Wild Leather gear. All of his quests simply ask you to bring him various items and the first two are very easy to get ahold of; the first asking for 10 Thick Leather and the second (the one for the shoulder armor) asking for 6 Thick Armor Kits and a Wildvine. As a skinner, I already had enough Thick Leather laying around in my bag to complete both quests and I hopped on an alt real quick to get a cheap Wildvine of the AH. The two quests together gave me an easy extra 4850 XP.

    I don’t know if a specific LW level is required to do these quests, but in any case I’m thinking it might be a good idea to put a note in the guide that Leatherworkers can turn in 10 Thick Leather, 6 Thick Armor Kits, and a Wildvine for some easy XP to let them know to get it before they head to Feathermoon.

    Thanks tons for the awsome guide. You deserve all the praise you get.

    Quest in hinterlandsHey James.
    First of all I wanted to tell you that your guide is really impressive.
    I already apologize for my quite bad english 😉
    I’m playing on EU servers and I leveled my gnome warrior from 30 to 78 with your guide and I enjoyed it alot.
    Now I’m facing a little problem.
    I started playing my warlock again and she was lvl 45 so I catched the guide in Feralas.
    I just jumped to the Hinterlands (at lvl 47) and I dont seem to have the quest [43] To the Hinterlands.
    I wasn’t able to find where is the first step of that quest, is it a big deal if I skip it? It seems to have quite much follow ups and I dont really want to miss something important 😉

    Best regards.

    I have followed your guide and am now lvl 65 and on your outland guides. Anyways maybe it is just me being lucky but I have done the search for the Distress Beacons to start the quests by looking for rare monsters and it dropped each time for all tree after killing it, maybe if people are having problems searching they should search for a rare monster in the area… specially for the last one since it seems to be the hardest to find. Also, each server seems to charge an insane amount for frost oil, so maybe you should omit it out of the guide since I skipped it and just did an instance and replaced the lost exp and some.

    Need some helpHey Jame. I just got off your 30-40 guide. I actually went to 34, got Quest Helper addon (If people use your guides, I suggest CarboniteQuest).

    I did a questing spree in Theramore and now almost all the quests on the top (lv 40 level area), and I can’t do them.

    What should I do until new quests come in? (At probably around 45-50+)… 🙁

    (I’m level 40 at the moment 🙂 )

    Catching UpLoving the guides so far, Jame. Thanks much.

    Only problem I have is that I’m OCD and being 42 while just finishing the lvl 40 section of your guide is driving me batty!

    Any suggestions on what to skip/skimp so I’m in sync with your guide?

    30-40 , 40-50 ?I have been following your 30-40 guide, and like it very much. I just reached the lev 38 section of your guide, but I am already level 40. Some of the quest i just got are green. Should i continue to follow the guide and continue to get further ahead? Or should I skip to the 40-50 guide? I see that it may be hard to skip, because of preresiquets, and quest chains? Thank You for your time.

    SuggestionHi! First of all I’d like to say, great guide! I’ve been using this for all of my characters and it’s helped me level crazy-fast.

    One thing I’d like to mention, near the end of the guide:

    4. Kill Rage Scar Yetis until you get 10 Rage Scar Yeti Hide and a Pristine Yeti Hide (rare drop). When you get the Pristine hide, right click it and get the quest.

    As of patch 2.4.2, this (pristine hide) quest no longer gives xp – only reputation, a couple of silver and some armour patches in the mail. I was grinding for it after completing the yeti hides quest, and decided it wasn’t worth it since it gives no xp. Just thinking you might want to change that to reflect the changes that were made. (also for those going for the Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdom quest achievements, the pristine hide quest does NOT count towards that either.)

    This part of the guide is right before
    “This should make you ding level 47.”

        BugI just started using your guide – thank you for all the work you’ve put into it, it has been a big help!

        I got the ‘Pristine Yeti Hide’ quest in the add-on, and it appears to be bugged in that the coordinates were entered in Tanaris instead of Feralis. Just before lvl 50 in your guide.

        Thanks again!

    Sprite Darter quest 😕 😕 You are kidding with this quest, right? What a complete waste of time, clearing the area around the cage is pointless, everything respawns before you get back with Kindal. Why even bother with this chain, the entire quest chain gives 3510 XP. I gained that much running around the cage repeatedly clearing the area. Might just as well grind.

    • img
      Jan 29, 2009 @ 18:38

      You’re the first person toYou’re the first person to ever complain about this quest, and nope I’m not kidding.

      If you clear fast and smart you should be fine. You don’t have to clear the whole camp, just as much as you can before respawns start.

      And I don’ tknow how you come up with such a number for the exp. This quest chain contains 8 quests, some of them give 6K exp and you get a unique pet at the end.

      Still think your whining was justified?

    Pool of tears.Hey James, thanks for taking the time to create these guides, they’re really helpful, anyways I’m using the addon version, and I just have a quick question. In the level 44 area of your guide for the quest [43] The Pool of Tears it says to loot 10 Atal’ai Artifacts, however the quest only requires you loot 5, I’m not sure if this is maybe a recent change with the patches, or am I maybe missing a quest to gather the remaining 5?

    Problem with [35] A Sign of HopeHi there Jame.

    Fantastic guide, I’m loving the addon. I started using the 40-50 guide with my Mage (already at 45) and I’m sort of making it work as I go. I figure I’ll more-or-less catch up to the end of the guide right around level 50 and be pretty much on track from there.

    I did find one small problem in the Badlands, both in the written guide and the addon. From the written guide above:

    “At (53,34) under a tent next to a big keg you will find a Crumpled Map on the floor. Click it and get the quest [35] A Sign of Hope. Then keep on killing Dark Dwarves until you get Ryedol’s Lucky Pick.”

    I stood next to that dang map for 10 minutes trying to understand why there was no ! and why I couldn’t click on it. I even restarted WoW just in case. Finally, after some web research, I found that this first part of the quest chain does not exist any more. You can go straight to Prospector Ryedol to get the next step in the chain. Looks like this was changed not too long ago.

    Just thought I’d let you know. If someone else already pointed it out, my apologies for the repetition. I couldn’t find a similar comment, but I’m sure I could have missed something. =)

    Awesome work, keep it up!

    I found a typo:

    “[49] Rise of the Slithid” – right over the last Hinterland picture.

    Just took the quest with one of my characters, and noticed it is written “Rise if the Silithid”.

    But, nice and great written guides, have about no problems with them, and I’m leveling incredible faster with your guides than I would have otherwise without a guide, keep up the good work 🙂

    Hey James thanks for theseHey James thanks for these Guides i was Leveling a DK with your guides got to Zul’Drak where your guides kinda drop off lol but now im level 80 just doing quests in Ice Crown for cash and pvping.

    Well Anyways now im leveling a priest and the thing is i might be High for the quest. it takes me almost 3 hours to level and im a level 46 almost 47.

    I followed your guide but i would also jump into an instance when i was lower levels so im almost a level and a half ahead of where i am in the guide. I just finished the swamp of sorrows circuit and went to blasted lands and flew back to Iron Forge and boat to Thereamore.

    But i was wondering where i could skip ahead to in the guide.

    Thanks for these amazing guides =)

      If you’re only 1 level and aIf you’re only 1 level and a half ahead of the guide it’s great, no need to skip. You’ll actually level faster with a couple of levels ahead.

      It only becomes a problem if you are like, 5+ levels a head and things you need to kill become grey to you.

      In short, don’t skip.

    Great FREE guides here. AGreat FREE guides here. A lot of work for such little recognition.

    One question about the 40-50 guide here though.

    In the Badlands part I notice you don’t take any quests going to or make any suggestions about Uldaman except remarking that it is a good time to run Uldaman if you have a group.

    There are no less than 5 quests that can be done in ~20 minutes outside the instance portion of Uldaman which is a lot of experience and the mobs here haven’t been elite for a while and are green to you, not to mention half of the follow ups are in Ironforge which you go to next in your guide.

    Please tell me if I just missed this portion.

    • img
      Mar 13, 2009 @ 20:34

      No, you didn’t miss aNo, you didn’t miss a portion 🙂

      Sometimes I just had to skip a bunch of quests here and there because there was already more than enough quests in the guide to make you ding 60 before Outland. (Hell, most people already ding 60 before they even start with the plaguelands when they follow my guide ^^)

    my english isHi,

    my english is terrible, but i try to ask a question anybody understands 😉

    First of all: I love your guides! They’re written very nice and are easy to understand. At the moment i’m leveling my third char along your Guide. Thanks for all the work!!!

    I followed your guide exactly – but i did every instance till Uldaman at least once.
    Because of this and probably because of the heirloom shoulders and rested xp i dinged 46 yesterday but only should be lvl 43.

    Now things start to get grey for me. Do you think it’s ok, to skip the open STV quests and directly jump to the swamps of sorrows?
    I’m, scared because of all the follow – up Quests. Or aren’t there much follow-up’s when finished with STV an continue with the next regions like swamps of sorrow. I’m searching for a point in your guide where i can get back to the chain easily… i hope you undserstand my problem….and my bad english 😉 Last days in school are years ago!


    • img
      Avr 3, 2009 @ 16:24

      Your English is fine

      Well,Your English is fine 🙂

      Well, if you have the addon and lightheaded installed, you can skip quests on a case by case basis since using lightheaded you can see if the quest has follow ups. If you want to skip the entire end of the Stranglethorn zone, you may miss a couple quests which lead to other zones, but I really don’t think there are many, if any at all. So that’s probably safe to do.

    Avr 7, 2009 @ 22:07

    Really good work :)Hey. First of all I’d like to thank you for all of your guides, this is the 3rd char I’ve been leveling from your guide. And I’m currently leveling a hunter that’s currently lvl 46 and about 2 days of playtime, which includes mining and enchanting pretty high skilled and also 600g+ with mount ofc.This is the first time I’ve been using the addon verision though.

    “5. Ride southeast to the Pool of Tears (65,45), swim down in the pool and look for Atal’ai Artifacts, gather 10 of them. A full turn around the pool should be enough. You should also get a message for [43] In Search of The Temple while swimming around in this pool.”

    As of 3.0.09 you only need to collect 5 artifacts. They do now spawn anywhere underwater around the temple, not just in the shallow parts as mentioned.

    Keep up the great work 🙂

    Mazen’s Behest alternativeHello,

    I wished to share my findings as I found the drop rate for Mazen’s Behest abysmally low and far too annoying to continue grinding elementals for hours (yes, I spent an hour, no drop – crazy).

    Instead, I did a circuit where I ran through the Misty Valley a few times, but continued on instead of continuing to grind. In addition to [43] The Pool of Tears, I also grabbed [37] Help Watcher Briggs (just for the free XP), [38] Mercy for the Cursed and had not yet abandoned [40] …and Bugs. I followed the guide towards the Temple, but along the way I kept killing the elementals, as they line all of the river networks. I continued to the coast after getting the Atal’ai Artifacts, and killed the crawlers to finish [40] …and Bugs. On the way back, I also picked up the escort quest [38] Galen’s Escape which was ludicrously easy since I was much higher level, and finished [38] Mercy for the Cursed at the same time. Since I didn’t get the drop for Mazen’s Behest, I dropped it and never looked back, although I guess I could have done another route around Misty Valley, but I was really sick of elementals by that point. :/ I remember having better luck on another character, but with the drop rate being so low (and me hating to grind), I had to drop it merely out of frustration.

    I don’t know if you left off Galen’s Escape and Mercy for the Cursed from the guide since it’s fairly low level, but with both quests being completed fairly easily, I think it makes up for the level difference. The trick to Galen’s Escape is just like the chickens – let Galen aggro the mobs. Clearing out the Hunters first helped quite a bit as well, though, since Galen seems to pick those ranged guys up pretty easily.

    Just maybe another option to extend the life of the Swamp of Sorrows circuit a bit. Your guides have been incredibly helpful so far, and I thank you immensely for providing them in addition to keeping them free.

    The Mechanical chicken vanity pet is PURE GOLD!I just sold the mechanical chicken gained from after completeting the three distress beacon quests in Booty Bay for 800g! This on EU Talvinarr, and from what I’ve heard it has and can be sold for even more. I currently have around 1,7k gold at lvl 52 so I’m quite pleased getting 800 for it 🙂 I just think that is something importmant to say in the guide about it’s value. Really it’s the epic mount right there.

      getting those rescue questsI’ve had terrible luck on those, no wonder the vanity pet sells for so much ;(

      One character got only the Tanaris ones, the other got the other two, but not that one, even though I went back to grind for eggs to level cooking.


      800 gold, that would have been a nice bit of change 😉

    On the sprite darter

    Bottom line, since you have your hearthstone set to where you have to go, the quest is easy and you have time for some other things.

    But, this guide kind of leaves some of the steps out 😉

    Though the next guide (50-60) picks up with you in the Hinterlands, getting food for the baby.

    It just leaves you hanging just a little here, just FYI.

    And it was there! He dropped Dizzy’s Eye!

    SuggestionsEarly in the guide, we have to take a quest from Tabetha’s Farm to collect Venom from Noxious Shredders and Darkfang Creepers. You say to kill them on sight, however the drop rate has been significantly buffed (confimation would be great), so I found if you go South-East of Tabetha’s Farm, you can complete the quest quickly and easily there without stopping and starting to kill them. I did this on the way to Moxie Steelgrille.

    Also, whilst in the Badlands, when grinding dwarfs at Hammertoe’s digsite for the pick, take the quest from the Crumpled Map, as it is a simple turn in to Prospector Ryedol (for 1k xp @ lvl 42).

    During the Badlands run,During the Badlands run, we’re told to head to Hammertoe’s Digsite to find that pick from one of the dwarves. While there I found the quest “A Sign of Hope” which is a simple “return to Ryedol” for an easy 1000 XP. You’d think most people would pick it up anyway but after following your guides for so long I usually ignore all quests but the ones you suggest I take, so I almost didn’t pick it up.

    Hey Jame, awesome guideHey Jame, awesome guide 😛 but I have a question. Is it “Mandatory”, or rather, “reccomended” to do the Orphan quest at level 49, where you have to hand over 2 Elixers of Fortitude? I spent a whole night in stormwind looking for 2, even on the WoW forums, and I can’t find any sellers. Can I just skip it or is it a big exp-filled quest line? 😕


    Oh, and I’m probably 30% to level 50, and your guide says I should be 50 right after the quest line, IF I do it… So I don’t know how I’d get to 50… 🙁

    • img
      Sep 3, 2009 @ 15:17

      Elixir of FortitudeUnfortunately you won’t find this Elixir at any vendor, so keep checking the auction house.
      If that doesn’t get you some (or its a silly price) then it might be worth a shout in chat for an Alchemist. Its a fairly low level elixir, so most should be able to make it for you, especially if you buy the materials first. For this quest you want two elixirs so you need 2x Wild Steelbloom and 2x Goldthorn plus the leaded vial (from vendor) to make it in.

      Good luck but if you don’t get it ditch the quest its no big deal.

Jaina is not offering me any more quests. I’m on step 15, where she is supposed to offer you Warn Bolvar and offer to send you to Stormwind..not happening for me. I’ve left and came back-nothing.

    Distress BeaconsJame I’ve been using your guides for a long time now, I can’t even remember the first time I found it, you do an amazing job.

    I’ve been outta WoW since last December, and decided to reroll alliance and I’ve been playing through for about 3 weeks (when I find the time).

    Just wanted to let you know that the distress quests (and subsequently nearly every escort quest I’ve done so far) have been greatly reduced in their difficulty, particularly the robot chicken ones.

    I remember doing them way back in vanilla WoW and barely getting them alone, now the chicken runs to the road, and only three yeti’s spawn, his AI is a bit better and he assists a little more, but it’s just one spawn, after that he flys away as soon as he hits the road.

    Might be a good idea for a next revamp to add which quests are required for next levels so you can skip quests if that happens.

    Error after a patch.After the patch today I was going to train my hunter, but I’ve noticed that the guide has been reset, and I tried to find the guide I was on which was the stanglethorn one, where I was on the step which said you have to get the tusk, but that guide wasn’t there, so can anyone help me please.

      The guide most likely gotThe guide most likely got disabled when the patch came out. Make sure “Load out of date addons” is checked, since it will by default be unchecked with the new patch. If that doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll try to help find the problem.

        I still can’t find the stepI still can’t find the step where it says to get 18 skull splitter tusk and skull splitter fetish. It’s like the add-on is different from the written one.

          Hmmm, are you sure you areHmmm, are you sure you are using a guide that says “WoW-Pro” in the title? There are also other guides that come with Tour Guide, is it possible you are using one of those? Sorry if this is something you’ve checked already, gotta go through each possibility.

    [45] Find OOX-22/FE!I just did this quest in Feralas and it is simple now.

    This is wrong now:

    2nd Warning: When out of the Yeti cave, the chicken will take a left turn and go towards the road, at some point 3 yetis will ambush him. Don’t panic, you can let one of the yetis be tanked by the chicken at the beginning and deal with the other 2. Just check the chicken’s health regularly. There will be a 2nd and a 3rd ambush, be prepared for them. Especially the last one is composed of 4 Gnolls.

    After you kill 3 yetis the chicken will reach a road and fly away and you are done. No more a 2nd and a 3rd ambush.

      the beaconHello, this beacon drops almost from every mob in Feralas. But the best place is maybe inside the cave where is the chicken. But … it can take looooong time to get it. You can find it in the first mob or after 2 hours. You never know. It is same for all beacons.

    Skipping parts of the guideFirst I’d like to say that this guide is awesome and has helped me quickly level 5 different characters. I have run into a problem recently though and am hoping for some suggestions. I have been doing all the daily Love is in the Air quests and am now starting to get too far ahead of the guide. Since the daily quests are so easy I think i would be foolish to skip them, however, I don’t want to continue losing points on turn ins and fighting mobs 4-5 levels lower. I would like to skip some of the guide, but I am worried about missing a chain quest that leads to some good XP later on. I am currently at level 47 with my character but just finishing the level 44 portion of the guide. Does anyone have some suggestions for quests that I can skip?

    Thanks in advance and everyone at the site keep up the good work.

    re:DalvishDalvish, I wouldn’t bother with caring too much about what quests you do and what not. If you see you started a chain quest then proceed and finish all the quests, since you don’t only get xp but also some good items. For quests that you are too high of level (green means easy, I usually skip them if not chain) simply cancel them and don’t worry. The point of leveling is to get to max level fast. And making 10 level is actually really fast if you know what you are doing. A few hours up or down depends on too many factors to worry about them.
