Jame’s Alliance Leveling Guide – Chapter III (50-60)


Chapter III (50-60)Journey from the Hinterlands to the Plaguelands


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
  • Grinding sessions removed and instances aren’t part of the leveling process anymore (no dependancy on groups), they are optional
  • 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
  • Leveling should be possible at a faster pace than before


This guide starts at level 50. However I hope that you followed the 2nd 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

  • Level 50: 15X Silk Cloth
  • Level 53: 1X Mithril Casing — If you can’t find them on the auction house, find an engineer willing to do it for a small tip.
  • As soon as possible : 16 or 18 slot bags, which you can buy from the auction house. We’ll go on long circuits sometimes and junk will quickly fill up your bags, so having a lot of space is a must.

These items might not always be available at the AH, so start checking early.

The Guide

Level 50

So you just finished the previous chapter? That means you should be in The Hinterlands right now, and your quest log should look like this:

  • [47] Food for Baby
  • [49] Rise of the Silithid
  • [49] Sprinkle’s Secret Ingredient
  • [51] The Stone Circle
  • [43] Rhapsody’s Kalimdor Kocktail
  • [52] It’s a Secret to Everybody
  • [53] The Eastern Pylon
  • [53] The Northern Pylon
  • [53] The Western Pylon
  • [55] The Apes of Un’Goro
  • [56] The Bait for Lar’korwi

If you did Zul’Farrak, you should also have:

  • [50] The Ancient Egg
  • [51] Saving Sharpbeak

If you did Uldaman, you should also have:

  • [50] Return to Ironforge

So let’s get started!


1. Get out of Aerie Peak by the small path to the east and go to Rhapsody Shindigger. (26,48)

Turn in [43] Rhapsody’s Kalimdor Kocktail. Watch him get drunk and then get the quest [43] Rhapsody’s Tale.

2. Ride southeast to Valorwind Lake at (40,60). Dive in and look for some white/red mushroom named Violet Tragan. Loot one. (Don’t right click it when its in your inventory!)

3. Ride northeast towards the area in between Shaol’Watha and Jintha’Alor (65,50). At this spot and widely around it you should find Silvermane Stalkers. They are level 47-48 wolves and they are stealthed. Run circles in the area I described among the trees, hit tab while looking around. You should find them quickly, they drop the stuff you need 40% of the time. Keep doing this until you got 5 Silvermane Stalker Flanks.

(Warlocks: Buff yourself with detect invisibility)

4. If you did NOT do Zul’Farrak and do not have the following quests, just skip to paragraph 5.

  • [50] The Ancient Egg
  • [51] Saving Sharpbeak

If you got those quests, go to Jintha’Alor (66,66). Fight your way to the top of Jintha’Alor, then go to Vile Priestess Hexx (59,78). She has one guard, you can wait till the Priestess wanders in the cave and get her guard solo. Then get the Priestess solo, kill her and loot the Hexx’s key from her. Also don’t forget to forge the Mallet of Zul’Farrak, just click your Sacred Mallet while being next to the Altar. Go inside the cave behind where you fought the Vile Priestess. Follow this path to find the Ancient Egg:


You’ll find Hitah’ya the Keeper and 2 guards patrolling around the Ancient Egg. Kill Hitah’ya the Keeper first, use your cooldowns and pots if necessary. Get the Ancient Egg.

Once you have the Ancient Egg, clear the way out of the cave back to the Altar, from there go north towards the other cave at (56,68). Kill the two trolls guarding it’s entrance. Then go through the cave and on the other side of it you’ll find Sharpbeak in it’s cage. Free Sharpbeak and watch him fly away with his parents.

5. You are done, hearthstone back to Aerie Peak.

Turn in the quest [47] Food for Baby and get the follow up [48] Becoming a Parent. Turn it in, congratulations on your new pet. It’s useless but it’s cute (and wasn’t a waste of time XP wise).
Turn in [51] Saving Sharpbeak.

Fly to Ironforge. If you didn’t do the Uldaman instance, skip to the next paragraph. If you did Uldaman, go northeast to the Hall of Explorers, turn in

  • [50] Return to Ironforge at Historian Karnik, get the follow up
  • [50] A Future Task. Turn it in at High Explorer Magellas.Go to the Deeprun Tram and take the tram to Stormwind, go to the Dwarven District and find Brohann Caskbelly (64,21). turn in [43] Rhapsody’s Tale, get the follow up [50] Into the Temple of Atal’Hakkar if you plan to do this instance in the future.

    Take the tram back to Ironforge.

    Visit the AH, sell junk, repair and re-stock consumables.

    ==Optional== If you want, you can go to Maraudon, it’s a nice little instance.Follow this guide I wrote about Maraudon. If you do Maraudon, don’t turn in the quest [51] Seed of Life though, it’s in Moonglade and we’ll make a stop there later on.

    In Ironforge, go to the inn and make it your home location.

    Go to the AH and buy 15 Silk Cloth if you don’t have that on you already. You’ll need them for a searing gorge quest.

    In short: Go to Searing Gorge.
    In details: From Ironforge, fly to Thelsamar, then go south to Badlands. In Badlands you can find the entrance to the Searing Gorge on the western end of the Badlands, south of Kargath (the horde outpost) at (3,61)

    Inside Searing Gorge:

    Follow the trail north and then west around the area named “The Cauldron” and find Kalaran Windblade (38,39). Get the quest [48] Divine Retribution then talk to Kalaran again and go through his dialogue. Turn in the quest and get the follow up [48] The Flawless Flame.

    Go a bit further west and you should find a path going up the mountain to Thorium Point (32,33).

    In Thorium point, find the wanted poster at (37,26). Right click it and get the quests:

    • [48] JOB OPPORTUNITY: Culling the Competition
    • [48] STOLEN: Smithing Tuyere and Lookout’s Spyglass
    • [50] WANTED: Overseer Maltorius

    Get the 3 quests from Hansel Heavyhands:

    • [49] Incendosaurs? Whateverosaur is More like It.
    • [49] Curse These Fat Fingers
    • [49] Fiery Menace!

    and [50] What the Flux? from Master Smith Burninate.

    Note: If you ever need to sell and repair, you should go to this NPC.

    Get the flight path.


    1. First, go south where you’ll find a big wheel (its part of a dark iron dwarven forge) and kill all the Dark Iron Steamsmith you find there (39,50), there should be 5 or 6 around here.
    Hopefully one of them will drop the smithing tuyere you need. If not, lets just go on, we’ll come back here later.

    2. Start heading east and kill any Elemental or Heavy War Golem you find on the way. Also kill Dark Iron Taskmasters and Dark Iron Slavers on your way. Don’t wait for respawns, just kill them while going east. At (59,35) mount up and ride southeast to Grimesilt Dig Site and find a little wooden house at (65,62) behind the dig site, which actually looks like some public toilet. Right click it and get the quest [45] Caught!.

    3. Start killing the Dark Iron dwarves in the camp as well as the golems around here. After you have killed 8 Dark Iron Gelologists, go back to the Wooden Outhouse and turn in the quest, don’t get the follow up though.

    Now go back to the digsite, and clear it entirely, especially the northern part. Get full HP/Mana and get the quest from Dorius Stonetender [46] Suntara Stones. Escort him.

    At (66,44) he will stop to catch his breath and will get ambushed by 2 lvl 43 Dark Iron Steelshifter. Easy fight.

    4. At (74,19) he will get assassinated (you can’t help it) and a parchment will appear on the floor next to him.


    Click it and turn in the quest, get the follow up [48] Suntar Stones.

    5. Ride southwest to the entrance of The Cauldron (63,38). Inside the Cauldron, kill all the Dark Iron dwarves and Elementals you find. The Blazing Elementals and the Magma Elementals drop the Heart of Flame you need. Also kill any Heavy War Golem you find.

    Note: If while killing dwarves you find a Grimsite Outhouse Key, right-click it to start the quest [47] The Key to Freedom, we will turn it in later on.

    6. Progress westwards inside the Cauldron until you find an iron slope going up at (46,53). Follow this slope until you find an entrance to the Slag Pit at (41,54).


    7. Inside the slag pit go across the bridge, on your left will be the Quarry Gate, go through it.
    Work your way northwards until a bigger room where you’ll find Enslaved Archeologists and a big golem lying down (ignore it). Go up the iron slope, midway on the slope you have 2 options, straight or left. Go straight. You’ll soon enter a room with several pairs of taskmasters and slavers.

    In this room further in and to the right you’ll find Overseer Maltorius and 2 Dark Iron Sentries. Kill Overseer Maltorius and loot his head. I recommend killing Maltorius first, he hurts the most but is a caster and doesn’t have much armor.

    Behind him on the ground you should see Secret Plans: Fiery Flux. Loot them.

    On the opposite side of the alcove where you found Overseer Maltorius you should see an iron bridge. On the other side of the bridge, jump down to the lower floor at the drop off spot indicated on the map. From this spot go east and you should find Incendosaurs, kill 20 of them.

    When done with that, go back up the ramp and then get out of the Slag pit, jump down back into the Cauldron and work your way westwards looking for Blaze Elementals until you get 4 Heart of Flame.

    9. Then go to the iron slope you took previously at (46,53) Follow this slope but this time skip the first entrance to the slag pit, and get on the elevator (40,54). The elevator will stop at the 1st floor and 2nd floor but don’t get off. Wait until it’s on the 3rd floor from there you can get out of the Cauldron.

    Kill every Steamsmith you find around the buildings infront and to the left of you after getting off the elevator (39,50). There is 5 Steamsmiths at this spot, pray that one of them drops a smithing tuyere. If not don’t worry, we’ll kill more of these later.

    10. Kill every Heavy War Golem around and go north to Karalan Windblade (39,38). Turn in the quest and get the follow up [48] Forging the Shaft

    11. Go to Thorium Point and turn in the quests you have completed. When turning in [50] What the Flux?, Master Smith Burninate will open 3 new quests to you, but they are just to work on thorium brotherhood faction, so don’t bother unless you care about this faction.

    ==Note== Dark Iron Dwarves sometimes drop Dark Iron Scraps, don’t sell them. We’ll need them for a plaguelands quest much later in the guide.

    You should be level 51 by now.

    Level 51


    1. Sell and repair, then go south to the big dwarven forge/wheel (39,50) and kill Dark Iron Steamsmiths again, if you still need the Tuyere.

    2. Then go west and then south, basically staying close to the cauldron but never going down in it. Kill every dwarf and golem on your way. Basically make circles around the cauldron. Also make sure you kill any Greater Lava Spider on sight.

    There is alot of them in an area west of the cauldron (28,47).

    While doing circles around the cauldron, make sure you kill the Dark Iron Lookouts you can find at the feet of each of the 4 watch towers. They drop the Lookout’s Spyglass you need for one of the quests.

    3. Anyway, as soon as you got 8 Thorium Plated Daggers, go back to Kalaran Windblade, even if you didn’t finish the other quests yet.

    Note: The Thorium Plated Daggers can drop on any dark iron dwarf, it generally takes me a full turn around the cauldron to get 8 of them.

    Turn in the quest at Kalaran Windblade and get the follow up [50] The Flame’s Casing

    4. Go kill the 5 Dark Iron Steamsmiths again before you go, if you haven’t got the smithing tuyere yet.

    5. Go west to the Twilight camp at (24,34). There is a cavern with Twilight mobs further to the west but don’t go there.

    6. First you should go up a narrow path up the mountain. When you are up the path, you should face your first twilight mobs. Clear through them eastwards until you reach a small pool of lava. (27,26)

    The pool of lava might look too crowded, but actually you can get solo pulls if you know the trick. Out of the 6 mobs at this lava pool, 3 of them are Twilight Idolaters, and they don’t assist if you pull a mob that is next to them, they are busy performing a ritual. They will only attack if you attack them directly.

    So first you must pull the other mobs one by one and then the idolaters. Once you go the lava pool cleared, you can go get the quest from that captured elf, Zamael Lunthistle. After taking his quest, talk to him again and go through his dialogue, then turn in the quest and get the follow up: [50] Prayer to Elune.

  • Now all that is left for you to do is kill Twilight mobs (any of them) until you get :
    • Symbol of Ragnaros
    • Prayer to Elune

    7. When you got both these items, go back to Kalaran Windblade.
    Turn in your quest at Kalaran Windblade and get the follow up [50] The Torch of Retribution. Turn it in, watch him craft the torch, then get the quest [50] The Torch of Retribution. Right click the staff surrounded by a green aura, complete the quest. Talk to Kalaran again, get the quest [50] Squire Maltrake.

    Turn in the quest at Squire Maltrake and get the follow up [52] Set Them Ablaze!


    1. Go southwest to the first watch tower (33,52). Don’t forget to kill any mob you might still need on the way (golem, spider, dark iron steamsmith or lookout)

    When you are at the 1st watch tower, clear any mobs guarding it, then search the Torch of Retribution in your inventory, equip it, and put it on a hotkey.

    Climb up the tower and search for a small bowl on the floor named Sentry Brazier and right-click it.


    This should light up the brazier.

    Do exactly the same thing on the 2nd tower (35,59), the 3rd tower (43,63) and the 4th tower accessible only through a bridge at (52,57).

    The 4th tower is the one with the most Dark Iron Lookouts, in case you didn’t get a Lookout’s Spyglass.

    2. After you are done setting the 4th tower ablaze, go east to the Grimsite Dig Camp and go turn in [47] The Key to Freedom at the wooden outhouse.

    3. Go back to Squire Maltrake (38,39), turn in the quest and watch Kalaran transform into a dragon, make his speech and then he’ll fly away. Right-click the treasure chest named “Hoard of the Black Dragonflight” next to where he was, accept the quest [50] Trinkets…
    Then click the chest again and complete the quest. Look in your inventory for the red box named Hoard of the Black Dragonflight, open it and loot whats inside of it (especially the Molt, which you will need later on for a quest)

    You don’t need the Torch of Retribution anymore, you can destroy it or bank it.

    Now there’s only two things left for you to do:

    • Finish all the quests that you haven’t finished yet, and you already should know where all the mobs you need are
    • Kill Dark Iron Dwarves (Taskmasters, Slavers, Lookouts, Steamsmiths) until you have 30 Dark Iron Scraps

    Once you have completed those two objectives, go back to Thorium Point and turn them in.

    We’re done here, hearthstone back to Ironforge.

    Sell junk, repair, visit the AH, re-stock food/drink.
    Go to the bank and put the 30 Dark Iron Scraps there, I’ll tell you when to pick them up.

    Go to the Hall of Explorers, turn in [46] Suntara Stones, don’t get the follow up.

    In the Hall of Explorers, find Laris Geardawdle (75,23), get the quest [52] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way and [52] Passing the Burden from Historian Karnik.

    Go to the Mystic ward, turn in the quest and get the follow up [52] Arcane Runes from Tymor, also get [52] An Easy Pickup from him.

    Go to the Military Ward, turn in and get the follow up [52] Signal for Pickup. Turn it in immediately so you receive a Standard Issue Flare Gun.

    Go to Stormwind and take the boat to Auberdine, then fly to Rut’theran Village, go to Darnassus and find the Temple of the Moon.

    Turn in [49] Rise of the Silithid, get the other quest [53] March of the Silithid.
    Turn in[50] Prayer to Elune.

    ==Note== If by any chance you have a Swim Speed Potion somewhere in your bank, grab it, there will be a long swim soon.

    Go back to Rut’theran Village, fly to Astraanar, or if you don’t have that flight path, fly to Auberdine, then keep following the road until you hit Astraanar (36,49).
    Get the flight path if you don’t already have it.

    Then fly to Forest Song. If you don’t have that flight path, keep going east following the road until (87,48). When you’re there don’t forget to get the flight path.

    From Forest Song, go east and stay on the road until you zone into Azshara (92,46).

    Right after entering Azshara you’ll find Talrendis Point on your right-hand side (11,77). Get the new flight path. Get the two quests from the tauren named Loh’atu:

    • [47] A Land Filled with Hatred
    • [47] Spiritual Unrest


    1. Go north on the other side of the road to Shadowsong Shrine (13,74). Kill 6 Highborne Apparitions and 6 Highborne Lichling. There’s more of them just a bit further to the northeast.

    2. When done with that, go further to the northeast until Haldarr Encampment, kill satyrs there until you have [47] A Land Filled with Hatred complete.

    3. Go back to Talrendis Point and turn in the two quests. You should be level 52 by now. If you’re not, don’t worry, there will be an optional circuit soon.

    Level 52

    4. Get back on the road and ride northeast. Go around the ruins of Eldarath by the west side of it and keep going northeast. Avoid the Timbermaw Furbolgs, don’t kill any of them even if they attack you, just run away. Avoid the other timbermaw camp “ursolan”, go around it by the east side and keep riding northeast until you get to sharp hill at (53,21), get to the top of it, you can only access it from the north. Uptop you’ll find a goblin named Kim’jael. Get his quest [53] Kim’jael Indeed.

    5. Just southeast of Kim’jael you’ll find Thalassian Base Camp (55,26).
    Start killing Blood Elves, in the blood elf camp you’ll find several crates named Kim’Jael’s Equipment scattered around. Open them all, most of the time you’ll find food in it, but 25% of the time you’ll find Kim’Jael’s compass, scope, etc.

    6. Once you got the Kim’Jael quest complete, go back to Kim’jael, turn in the quest, get the follow up [53] Kim’Jael’s “Missing” Equipment.


    1. Ride southwest and find the path going down to the Shattered Strand (45,37). Simply follow the yellow dots on the map. You’ll encounter some naga pretty soon, kill every naga on your way, go southwest, until you reach the Ruins of Eldarath by a path at (41,48).

    2. Go southwest and at (39,50) you’ll find a Pillar named Rune of Jin’yael.


    Clear the 2 ghosts guarding it and any naga close to it. Right-click the pillar and you’ll receive the Rubbing: Rune of Jin’yael.

    3. A bit further to the south, at the central point of the Ruins of Eldarath you’ll find the Rune of Beth’Amara (36,53). Right-click it and get the rubbing.

    4. Just southeast of this spot is the Rune of Markri (39,55), get the rubbing.

    5. And the last one is much further to the south and a bit to the east, at (42,64) you’ll find the Rune of Sael’hai, get the rubbing.

    Grind your way through nagas back from where you came from until the path leading to the Shattered Strand at (45,47).

    You should find “Some Rune” on one of the nagas on the shattered strand, keep killing Spitelash sirens and myrmidons until one drops “Some Rune”.

    6. Find the slope taking you out of the Shattered Strand back on high ground at (46,39) and then ride northeast back to Kim’jael, turn in the quest.

    7. Ride back to the Shattered strand by the same path (45,37). This time don’t kill the nagas, just ride along the shore directly south, avoiding nagas as much as possible and keep going until you hit a spot where you can’t go further without having to swim (58,73).

    8. Swim east and then south to the island marked on the map (77,91), just be careful to avoid the elite giants that walk at the bottom of the sea. Anything else is manageable.

    Get on the Helipad and use your Standard Issue Flare Gun from your inventory. After a few seconds a gyrocopter will land and Pilot Xiggs will come out, turn in the quest [52] Arcane Runes and get the follow up [52] Return to Tymor (don’t worry there is still 11000 xp to come from turning that one, I didn’t make you cross the ocean for peanuts 😉 ) You can destroy the Flare Gun.

    Hearthstone back to Ironforge. Go to the Mystic Ward, find Tymor and turn in [52] Return to Tymor.

    Sell, repair and resupply food/drink up to 4 stacks. Train your new skills.

    You should be about halfway through level 52. If you are not, here is a little optional circuit you can do:

    ==Optional Circuit==

    Fly to Nethergarde Keep (Blasted Lands).

    Ride out of Nethergarde Keep, go west / northwest until you find the two Blood Elves at (50,14). Get all their quests:

    • [50] A Boar’s Vitality
    • [50] Snickefang Jowls
    • [50] The Basilisk’s Bite
    • [50] The Decisive Striker
    • [50] Vulture’s Vigor

    Start killing directly from here, you can find all the animals you need to kill for theses quests in the upper part of Blasted Lands. Avoid the area around the Dark Portal and the Tainted Scar. Avoid anything that is level 52 or above.

    Kill pretty much everything on your way until you have all the quests completed. Beware of the big drake flying around named Teremus the Devourer. Besides this, just kill everything 😛 What you’ll need to kill the most though are vultures and basilisks, so here is a path you should follow, listing every possible Vulture spawn (there’s also a few vulture roamers but you’ll run into those too from time to time) so try to get all of them every cycle.


    Completing all the quests will take a while, but here are a few tips:

    • Melees: As soon as possible try to finish the quest [50] The Decisive Striker and go turn it in, you’ll get a +25 AGI buff for 1 Hour. When that buff wears out, go turn in either Snickerfang Jowls (+25 STR buff) or A Boar’s Vitality (+25 STA buff) depending on your preferences.
    • Casters: As soon as possible try to finish the quest [50] A Boar’s Vitality and turn it in for a +25 STA buff. Later on after your sta buff wears off, try to finish [50] The Basilisk’s Bite for a +25 INT buff.

    These buffs will help you to kill faster.

    While killing mobs in Blasted Lands you might loot an Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment on one of them. Go to Kum’Isha the Collector (51,35). Get the quest [55] Everything Counts in Large Amounts and turn it in. No need to get the follow up quest unless you get another Imperfect Draenethyst Fragment.

    If you are extremely lucky you’ll find a Flawless Draenetyst Sphere In that case get the other quest from Kum’Isha and turn it in.

    Turn in all the other blasted lands quest when they are done, don’t get the follow ups (they are repeatable if you want to get more of those consumable buffs later on).

    Hearthstone back to Ironforge, sell junk, repair, etc.

    ==End of Optional Circuit==

    Go to Stormwind, take the boat to Auberdine.

    Fly to Emerald Sanctuary. If you don’t have that flight path, simply follow the road from Astranaar to Felwood, and then keep going north until you find Emerald sanctuary (51,81).

    In Emerald Sanctuary, get the following quests:

    • [51] Forces of Jaedenar
    • [54] The Corruption of the Jadefire
    • [54] Verifying the Corruption

    Go south, on the other side of the trail you’ll find Grazle, get his quest [48] Timbermaw Ally.


    1. Go southeast till you find Arathandris silversky (54,87). Get her quest [55] Cleansing Felwood.

    2. Go west and you’ll find Deadwood Village (49,88), start slaughtering Furbolgs. Keep doing that until you complete [48] Timbermaw Ally

    3. Go back to Grazle and turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] Speak to Nafien.

    Ride north following the road until (43,67), to the west should be a green pool, go there and kill Cursed Oozes. Each time you kill one, and after looting it, target the corpse and click on an Empty Cursed Ooze Jar from your inventory (you get these by opening the Package of Empty Ooze Containers you should have in your inventory).

    Fill up 6 Cursed Ooze Jar in the same fashion.

    5. Get back on the road and ride north until (41,59), just a bit before Jaedenar, on the left side of the road is a small green pool with tainted oozes. Fill up 6 Tainted Ooze Jar. If you lack oozes there is more just north, on the other side of the path leading to Jaedenar.

    6. Go to Jaedenar (40,57), clear yourself a path westwards through Jadefire Hounds, Guardians, Adepts and Cultists until you get to the green moonwell at (35,60), then go back out of Jaedenar and you should be done with [51] Forces of Jaedenar normally. If the area is crowded, you’ll find more stuff to kill inside the cave at the beginning of Jaedenar.

    7. Go back to Emerald Sanctuary. Turn in the quest and get the follow up [52] Collection of the Corrupt Water from Greta Mosshoof. You should be level 53 by now. If you are not, no worries, keep going, there will be more optional circuits in the future.

    Level 53


    1. Ride north on the road until (42,69), which is just before the green pool where you killed the Cursed Oozes. Go west until you find Satyrs among the ruins (38,69). Kill whats on the kill list of [54] The Corruption of the Jadefire. Shadowstalkers are stealthed but you can see them from far enough. Work your way westwards through the satyrs until you reach a green moonwell. Xavathras should be to the left of it with a guard. I killed the weak guard first quickly and then killed Xavathras. Use long cooldown abilities if needed. Then get the last kills you need to complete the quest on your way out.

    2. When [54] The Corruption of the Jadefire is complete, get back on the road, go north and then west back into Jaedenar, once again clear the way up to the green moonwell where you already went to when you did [51] Forces of Jaedenar.

    Get close to the moonwell and click the Empty Canteen you should find in your inventory.

    3. Get out of Jaedenar and ride back to Emerald Sanctuary. Turn in [52] Colleciton of the Corrupt Water and get the follow up [52] Seeking Spiritual Aid. Turn in [54] Corruption of the Jadefire and get [54] Further Corruption.

    4. Get back on the road, ride north and this time past bloodvenom falls. Shortly after the bridge go right into Shatter Scar Vale (39,44). Kill 2 Entropic Beasts, they are immune fire and deal fire damage. Walk around in the Shatter Scar Vale until you get the “Explore the craters” complete message. Further to the east and a bit to the north at the last crater you should find Entropic Horrors, they are just a bit higher level than the Entropic Beasts but still in your range. Kill two Entropic Horrors then get back on the road. If you don’t find Entropic Horros, kill Entropic Beasts until Entropic Horros respawn instead.


    1. Ride north until the road curves to the right, just a bit further after the curve at (42,23), go north on a trail going up to Jadefire Run.

    In Jadefire Run clear yourself a path towards the west, and then take a narrow path towards the southwest.

    At the end of that path you’ll find Xavaric (39,22), he is surrounded by 2 other satyrs and he moves from one to the other. You can actually pull each of the guards solo, if you wait for Xavaric to be away enough from one of them. Kill Xavaric, he’s an easy fight if pulled solo.

    Loot the Flute of Xavaric and right click it to get the quest [54] Flute of Xavaric.

    Keep killing Satyrs in Jadefire run until you get 5 Jadefire Felbind (they can drop from any of the satyrs in Jadefire run) and complete the kill list of [54] Further Corruption.

    2. Get back on the road and ride until Irontree Cavern as shown on map (55,15). Kill Warpwood Elementals until you get 15 Blood Amber, they have a 100% drop rate.

    3. Get back on the main road, go east and then south to Talonbranch Glade (62,24). Get the new flight path, sell and repair.

    4. Get back on the road and ride north until the entrance of Timbermaw Hold, talk to Nafien, turn in the quest. Get the other quest [55] Deadwood of the North.

    5. Go inside Timbermaw Hold, after the bridge keep going east until you exit into Winterspring.


    6. In Winterspring, ride south to Donova Snowden, turn in the quest [52] It’s a Secret to Everybody, let her do her speech, and then get the follow up [52] The Videre Elixir, don’t get the other quest.

    If you didn’t go to Maraudon and/or if you don’t have the quest [51] Seed of Life, skip the next paragraph. Go back to Talonbranch Glade, fly to Feathermoon in Feralas.

    If you have the quest [51] Seed of Life,go back to Timbermaw Hold, this time in the tunnels, go under the bridge and to the north, keep going until you exit in Moonglade. In Moonglade go north straight to the shrine of Remulos (36,42), turn in [51] Seed of Life at Keeper Remulos. Then go south/southeast to the Hyppogryph master at (49,67) and fly to Feathermoon in Feralas..

    10 minute break while on the Hippogryph!

    In Feathermoon, go to the inn and make it your home location.

    Go to the house southeast and get [50] The Stave of Equinex from Troyas Moonbreeze.


    1. Take the boat to Feralas.

    2. Mount up and ride east towards the road, then follow it north until you reach the “o” from the Twin Colossals. At this point go northwest till (42,21), where you will find a stone giant named Rockbiter. Get the quest [49] The Giant Guardian from him.

    3. Get back on the road and go north until you see some white ruins just west of the road, with a gnoll – Miblon Snarltooth – infront of it (45,11). Get off your mount, and watch this video, it shows you how to get the Evoroot without buying the bait from Gregan. Thanks Laurens from Twisted Nether (EU) for the video!

    Loot an Evoroot from one of the pedestals.

    4. Then go directly southwest to the Ruins of Ravenwind. We’re now gonna do the quest [50] The Stave of Equinex.
    There are level 48-50 Harpies everywhere in those ruins. Be careful with runners.

    Go southwest to some big ruined arch (40,12).


    The Flame of Samha is on the top of it in the middle. To get there you have to get behind the building and jump from stones to stones until you can reach the flame of Samha. Right click it and loot the Samha Essence.

    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 (39,9.5). Loot the Imbel Essence.

    Then go southwest (ignore Shay Leafrunner for now if you see her) until (37,11). The Flame of Lahassa is under a dark brown gazebo.


    Loot the Lahassa Essence.

    Then go south to (38,15), next to a thick square tower you’ll find another dark brown gazebo, inside of it is the Flame of Byltan, right-click it. Loot the Byltan Essence.

    5. Now that you have all 4 essences, go north to the Equinex Monolith (38,13).

    Clear some space around it, then go to it, search your bags for Troyas’s Stave. Right-click it to charge the stave, then right click the monolith, complete the quest, get the follow up [50] The Morrow Stone.

    6. Get out of the Monolith area and then clear yourself a path northwest to Shay Leafrunner.

    Before you take the quest, here is the trick :

    After taking the quest you must loot the bell from the chest next to Shay. Make a hotkey of that bell. Now here is the problem with Shay, she wanders off every now and then, she always says something like “oh what a beautiful flower” and goes away. When she does that you are supposed to ring the bell and she will run back to you. The problem is that the bell has a rather long cooldown so she ends up wandering off too often.
    The trick is that as soon as you ring the bell, she will run to you, so you should start running southeast / south towards Rockbiter (42,21) and she will keep running after you until she catches up. When she catches up she will say something like ‘I wandered off again, sorry”. But the cooldown on the bell will be reset already.

    In short: When she wanders off, ring the bell and run away, don’t let her catch up to you. Even if you get aggroed by mobs keep running. Only stop if Shay herself gets attacked, then you will have to defend her. You can run and look behind you by holding your mouse’s left click and moving the mouse, to make sure she’s still running after you.

    Once at the giant, turn in the quest.

    7. Go southeast to Gregan Brewspewer (45,25). Turn in the quest [52] The Videre Elixir.

    Hearthstone back to Feathermoon. Turn in [50] The Morrow Stone.

    Fly to Gadgetzan, make it your home location.

    Turn in [49] Sprinkle’s Secret Ingredient, get the follow up [49] Delivery for Marin. Turn it in at Marin Noggenfogger on the other side of the town. Take his follow up, wait 5 seconds and turn it in.

    Now you’ll be able to buy Noggenfogger Elixir from Marin as much as you want.

    (Kudos to the original artist, whose name I don’t know unfortunately)

    Turn in [53] March of the Silithid, get the follow up [53] Bungle in the Jungle.

    Ride south to Marvon Rivetseeker (53,46) and turn in [51] The Stone Circle. Get the two follow up quests if you plan to do the Sunken Temple instance.

    ==Optional== For those who have the quest [50] The Ancient Egg, go turn it at Steamwheedle port, and get the follow up quest [53] The God Hakkar (Dungeon) if you plan to do the Sunken Temple instance.

    Fly to Ratchet. Get the quest [55] Volcanic Activity from Liv Rizzlefix.

    From ratchet ride south along the merchant coast and go east to the Tidus Stair (65,43), right next to the ocean you should find Islen Waterseer next to a hut. Turn in [52] Seeking Spiritual Aid, watch her summon a water elemental spirit and then take her follow up [54] Cleansed Water Returns to Felwood.

    ==Note== For those who want to do the Sunken Temple instance, now would be a good time to do it, you have almost all the quests available (minus your class quest, which you can easily get) and it’s a fun instance. Follow my Sunken Temple Guide and have fun.

    Go back to Ratchet, fly to Emerald Sanctuary, Felwood.

    Turn in:

    • [54] Cleansed Water Returns to Felwood, get the follow up [55] Dousing the flames of Protection
    • [54] Flute of Xavaric, get the follow up [54] Felbound Ancients
    • [54] Further Corruption
    • [54] Verifying the Corruption


    1. Ride southeast to Arathandris silversky (54,87), turn in [55] Cleansing Felwood. Talk to her and ask her for a Cenarion beacon. From now on when you kill stuff in Felwood you can get Corrupted Soul shards, which you will turn in later for cenarion plant salves. With those salves you can cure corrupted plants in felwood and get consumables in return. I personally like the Songflower buff a lot (+70 Crit rating and +15 to all stats for 60 min).

    Don’t get any of her quests, you can get the quest items without having them in your quest log. If you have gathering skills (like Herbalism, Mining, Skinning), you will be able to complete extra quests with her, for some decent exp reward.

    You should be level 54 by now, or at least pretty close.

    Level 54

    2. Get back on the road, ride to Jaedenar (40,57). in Jaedenar clear the way towards the corrupted moonwell you already went to before to fill up the vial. Enter the Shadow Hold at (35,58).

    At this point if you can find people to group it will be much easier. Dousing the Flames of Protection is doable solo (but kinda hard), on the other hand there’s an escort quest which is difficult solo, at least for most classes. It also depends on how crowded the area is, if there’s lots of people farming in the shadow hold already, it’s much easier to solo it.

    Clear your way down the first tunnel, in the first room you’ll find a captured elve named Arko’narin. This is the NPC that gives the escort quest, but to get it you first need to find a Blood Red Key from one of the mobs inside Shadow Hold, click it and get the quest [55] A Strange Red Key. You have to turn this quest at Captured Arko’narin later. The follow up will be the escort quest.

    In the same room you can find the 1st and 2nd brazier (the 2nd one is on the slope going to the next tunnel), click them to turn them off.

    If you are in a group (at least a duo of lvl 54 people), and get a Blood Red Key (the whole group can loot it if it drops), tell everyone to turn in the first quest at the captured elf but to NOT take the follow up until everyone turned in the first quest. When everyone has turned in the first quest [55] A Strange Red Key, one person should start the follow up, which is the escort quest.
    Note: You have to click on the elf through the cage. Some people try to click the cage itself, but that doesn’t work.

    Escort Arko’Narin to her equipment. Right after she gets her equipment, she’ll do something reckless, charge into 3 of those big demons. That’s the big fight of the escort, use your cooldowns and pots on this one. If you manage it you should be fine, the rest isn’t too difficult. In the same room where her equipment is you’ll find the 3rd and 4th Brazier, turn them off too. At the exit you’ll get attacked by Trey Lightshadow, this should be an easy kill.
    Defeat it and then Arko’narin will leave and you’ll get the quest complete message.

    3. Once you are done with both [55] Dousing the flames of Protection and [55] Rescue From Jaedenar, go back to the Emerald Sanctuary. Turn in both quests, get the follow ups [57] Retribution of the Light and [58] A Final Blow.

    Fly to Talonbranch Glade, go through the timbermaw cave to Winterspring and ride south to Donova Snowden. Turn in [52] The Videre Elixir, get the follow up [52] Meet at the Grave.

    Go back to Talonbranch Glade, fly to Rut’theran Village, get the quest [55] Moontouched Wildkin and [56] Starfall (55,92).

    Go to Darnassus. Go to the Temple of the Moon and fill up Eridan’s Vial at the pool (39,84).

    Go to Ironforge, train your new skills. Visit the AH, we need the Mithril Casing now, so buy it or pick it up from your bank if you alrady bought it. If you really can’t find a Mithril Casing, don’t sweat it, it’s just one extra quest, not a big deal, move on.

    In Ironforge, go to the Hall of Explorers, turn in [52] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way, get the follow up.

    When you’re ready to go again, hearthstone to Gadgetzan.

    In Gadgetzan, get the quest [54] Super Sticky from Tran’rek.

    Go to the Gadgetzan grayveyard, just east of Gadgetzan (53,28). Drink the Videre Elixir, you’ll die, but don’t worry, no durability loss from this, it’s normal. Release spirit but don’t resurrect, go directly north from the Graveyard and up the mountain, you should soon see the yellow “?” on your minimap, go to it and talk to Gaeriyan, turn in and get the follow up [52] A Grave Situation. Go back to the graveyard, resurrect and click the gravestone named A Conspicuous Gravestone, complete the quest and get the follow up [52] Linken’s Sword. You can destroy the other Videre Elixir.

    Fly to Marshall’s Refuge in Un’Goro Crater. Turn in [52] Linken’s Sword, get the follow up, [52] A Gnome’s Assistance.

    Get all the quests available here, your quest log should now look like this:

    • [54] Felbound Ancients
    • [57] Retribution of the Light
    • [58] A Final Blow
    • [54] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way
    • [55] Moontouched Wildkin
    • [56] Starfall
    • [53] Bungle in the Jungle
    • [54] Super Sticky
    • [55] Deadwood of the North
    • [51] Roll the Bones
    • [51] Shizzle’s Flyer
    • [52] A Gnome’s Assistance
    • [52] Alien Ecology
    • [52] Muigin and Larion
    • [53] Chasing A-Me 01 (from Karna Remtravel, south of Marshall’s Refuge)
    • [53] Expedition salvation
    • [53] The Eastern Pylon
    • [53] The Northern Pylon
    • [53] The Western Pylon
    • [55] Beware of Pterrordax
    • [55] Lost!
    • [55] The Apes of Un’Goro
    • [55] Volcanic Activity
    • [56] The Bait for Lar’korwi

    24 Quests. That’s a lot, so let’s clear some up right away. This will be a very long circuit, so make space in your bags and re-stock up to 3 stacks of food/drink.

    ==Note== From this point on, kill the following mobs on sight:

    • Bloodpetals of any kind (those walking flowers)
    • Diametradons
    • Pterrordaxes

    Also, don’t destroy or sell the following items:

    • Un’goro Soil (Needed for [53] Bungle in the Jungle)

    And also beware of the Tyrant Devilsaurs, there is a few of them roaming in Un’Goro. They are lvl 55ish elite, run fast and hit hard. So watch your back.


    1. Get out of Marshall’s Refuge and ride east along the wall until (54,13). At this spot go up the mountain and you should find the Northern Crystal Pylon. Click it, and examine it, you should get a “quest complete” message.
    Further north of the crystal you should find some Pterrordax (3 of them normally), kill them.

    2. Go southeast to Fungal Rock. You should find plenty of apes there outside and inside the cave.

    Kill apes there until you get 2 un’goro gorilla, stomper and thunderer pelts. Be careful when fighting the Un’Goro Gorillas, they call for help when they get low health, and any other ape in a rather wide range will come to help. So, fight them away from other apes.

    3. Once you got all the pelts, go back inside the cave, at the first fork go right and you’ll find A-Me 01, turn in the quest, get the follow up, which you can turn in right away if you have the Mithril Casing. Get full HP/Mana and get the follow up, escort A-Me all the way back to Karna Remtravel, turn in [53] Chasing A-Me 01.

    4. Go southwest until you hit the river (40,27). On the southern side of the river you’ll find plenty of Dinos and some Oozes.

    In this area, kill every Frenzied Pterrordax, Elder Diametradon, Bloodpetal Trapper and Ooze you find. Open the bag of empty ooze containers from your inventory and put the 10 Empty Pure Sample Jar on a hotkey. Everytime you kill an ooze, loot it and then target the corpse and click the jars to fill them up. You can stop killing Oozes once you got 10 Pure Samples.

    Keep doing this until you complete:

    • [51] Shizzle’s Flyer
    • [51] Roll the Bones (they drop from the Elder Diametradons approximately 25% drop chance)
    • [54] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way
    • 15/15 Frenzied Pterrordax kills

    This might take a while but this is decent grinding since there’s quite a lot of mobs, and you are completing 4 quests at the same time.

    ==Warning== Be careful, 2 devilsaurs roam this area from time to time.


    1. Go south to (31,50) and you’ll find a little goblin named Krakle, get his quest quickly [55] Find the Source.

    2. Go directly west and a bit to the south and you will find the Western Crystal Pylon (23,57). Click it and examine it.

    3. Go southeast to the Expedition Camp at (38,66), try to avoid the aggros as much as possible because most mobs are too tough for you here. At the expedition camp, look for a pile of crates named Research Equipment and loot them.

    4. Go southeast and you should find a spot up the mountains with 4 or 5 Pterrordax there (44,87), kill them.

    5. A little further east and up the mountain (50,88). You should find 1 or 2 Pterrordax there, kill them. Go back and forth between this spot and the previous one until you get your 10 Pterrodax kills. Feel free do the next step while waiting for the respawns, they are pretty long (sometimes over 20 minutes).

    6. Go north to the Slithering Scar and clear yourself a path to the bug lair entrance at (50,76). Inside the bug lair at the first fork go left, clear the circular room and then stand in the middle of it, look in your inventory for a black vial named Scraping Vial and click it. If it doesn’t work try different spots in this room until you get a Hive Wall Sample.

    At this point you might already have gotten a Gorishi Scent Gland. If you didn’t, keep on killing these bugs until one drops. It can drop from any of the bugs, inside or outside the lair, it doesn’t matter.


    1. Go east to Torwa Pathfinder (72,76). Turn in:

    • [55] The Apes of Un’Goro, get [55] The Mighty U’cha

    2. Go north until you find the Eastern Crystal Pylon (76,48). Click it and examine it.

    3. Go further east and you should see some huge dinosaur skeletons at (80,49). Be full health/mana and ready to face a level 56 mob. Open Torwa’s Pouch in your inventory, loot the Preserved Threshadon Meat and the Pheromone Mixture, right click the meat, and then right click the Pheromone, Lar’korwi will appear, kill him. He’s rather easy, I had no problem to solo it at all at level 54. Loot Lar’korwi’s Head.

    4. Go northwest until the Expedition Encampment (68,36) and loot the Crate of Foodstuffs.

    5. Go northwest until you find 3 black pools with Tar Creepers and Tar Beasts around them (60,26). Clear these 3 pools until you have 12 Super Sticky Tar (drop rate is about 25%)

    6. Ride northeast to Fungal Rock (63,16). Enter the cave, at the fork take the narrow path in the middle, then go right and keep going until you hit the end of the cave.

    You should find a room with a puddle of water and a rock in the middle. There should be U’cha, lvl 55 Gorilla. There’s another gorilla in the same room but you can pull it solo if you wait for U’cha to be away. Then pull U’cha solo, kill it and loot U’cha’s Pelt.

    Get out of Fungal Rock. If you haven’t finished [52] Muigin and Larion, go out and kill some more flowers until you complete it. Go to the area which is southeast of the black pools where we killed the Tar beasts. There are plenty there and they are the easiest flowers to kill (65,27).

    You should be level 55 by now.

    Level 55

    8. Go back to Marshall’s Refuge. Turn in:

    • [51] Shizzle’s Flyer
    • [52] Muigin and Larion, don’t get the follow up
    • [55] Beware of Pterrordax
    • [51] Roll the Bones
    • [52] Alien Ecology
    • [53] Expedition salvation

    Go inside the cave, turn in:

    • [52] A Gnome’s Assistance, get the follow up [54] Linken’s Memory
    • [53] The Eastern Pylon
    • [53] The Northern Pylon
    • [53] The Western Pylon

    Get [53] Making Sense of it. Turn it in. You can bank the book you get as reward from this quest (it tells you how to combine crystals at the various pylons for some consumable crystals with effects like heals or damage shields, but nothing so great, so just destroy the book, you can check wowhead for the combines anyway).

    Get out of the cave, sell junk (but don’t sell all your Un’goro Soils, you will need 5 for the quest [53] Bungle in the Jungle. Re-stock food/drink.


    1. Go southeast to Fire Plume Ridge, climb the mountain from the northeastern side (53,43). Find your way to the top of Fire plume ridge. Kill every fire elemental on your way.

    2. When at the top of Fire Plume Ridge, next to the lava pool you should see a conic stone named Fire Plume Ridge Hot Spot. Search your inventory for Krakle’s Thermometer, right-click it next to the conic stone, this should complete the quest [55] Finding the Source. Now kill more elementals until you finish [55] Volcanic Activity.

    3. Go down to the southern side of the mountain and find the cave where Ringo is (52,51). Turn in the quest [55] Lost! and get the follow up [55] A Little Help from my Friends. Search your inventory for Spraggle’s Canteen and put it on a hotkey. Everytime Ringo faints, click the canteen while being next to him. Get off the mountain by the eastern side, then go north, run to Marshall’s Refuge while making sure Ringo always follows you, try to avoid mobs as much as possible. Run inside Marshal’s Refuge until Spraggle Frock, you’ll get the quest complete message. Turn in [55] A Little Help from my Friends.

    4. Mount up, ride southwest to Golakka Hotsprings and find Krakle behind the geyser hill (30,50). Turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] The New Springs.

    5. Ride east/southeast to Torwa Pathfinder (71,76). Turn in the 2 quests:

    • [55] The Mighty U’cha
    • [56] The Bait for Lar’korwi

    Hearthstone to Gadgetzan. Turn in:

    • [54] Super Sticky
    • [53] Bungle in the Jungle, don’t get the follow up.

    Fly to Ratchet, turn in [55] Volcanic Activity.

    Your quest log should look like this now:

    • [54] Felbound Ancients
    • [57] Retribution of the Light
    • [58] A Final Blow
    • [54] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way
    • [55] Moontouched Wildkin
    • [56] Starfall
    • [55] Deadwood of the North
    • [54] Linken’s Memory
    • [55] The New Springs

    Fly to Emerald Sanctuary, Felwood. Turn in:

    • [54] Felbound Ancients, get the follow up [54] Purified!, which you can turn in immediately, and you should receive the Flute of the Ancients
    • [54] Linken’s Memory, get the follow up [54] Silver Heart

    You should be level 56 now or pretty close. There will be optional circuits at the end of the guide, so if you’re behind, don’t worry, keep going.

    Level 56

    Go south to Arathandris silversky (54,86). Turn in the salve quests you completed there (if you don’t have any gathering skill, you will only have Salve via Hunting completed). These quests are repeatable but only the first turn-in gives XP. On the other hand you get Cenarion Plant Salves which you can use to cleanse corrupted plants in Felwood and get buffs or consumables from them. Check this guide for more details. I personally recommend finding a Songflower and getting the nifty +5% crit +15 All stats.

    Go back to Emerald Sanctuary and fly to Talonbranch Glade.

    Go through Timbermaw Hold. On the other side of the tunnel, get the quest [58] Winterfall Activity from Salfa.


    1. Ride south to Donova Snowden, turn in [55] The New Springs, get the follow up [56] Strange Sources.
    Also get the other quest [56] Threat of the Winterfall.

    From now on, throughout winterspring look for big white/blue feathers on the floor named Moontouched Feather, you need 10 of these.


    2. Ride east to Timbermaw Post (39,44). Kill 8 Winterfall Pathfinder, Den Watcher and Totemic there. If you find a Winterfall Ritual Totem, right-click it and get the quest [56] Winterfall Ritual Totem. If you don’t find one, don’t worry, we’ll kill more of these later on.

    Keep killing these Furlbogs until you also get a Empty Firewater Flask, click it and get the quest [56] Winterfall Firewater.

    3. Get back on the road and ride east until a crossroad (53,34). Go north to Starfall Village (51,30). Turn in [56] Starfall, get the follow up. Talk to Jaron Stoneshaper, turn in the quest [56] The Ruins of Kel’Theril and get the follow up [56] Troubled Spirits of Kel Theril. Also get [59] Enraged Wildkin.

    4. Get back on the road, go south to the crossroads, when you are there go southeast this time until Everlook.

    Go to the inn, get the quests:

    • [52] Duke Nicholas Zverenhoff
    • [52] The Everlook Report
    • [55] Sister Pamela

    Make this inn your home location.

    Go to the opposite building, you’ll find a banker in it. Bank The Everlook Report and Studies in Spirit Speaking. I’ll say when to get them back from the bank later in the chapter.
    Sell and repair, resupply food and drink (3 stacks), get the flight path (it’s on the eastern side of Everlook.)


    1. Go west to the Lake of Kel’Theril. Look around for blue runes amidst the floor named “Highborne Relic Fragment”.


    Watch out before you pick any of them though, be full health/mana, because 2 lvl 55 spawn and attack you each time you click one. You can either kill them or run away.

    The 1st Relic fragment is at (55,43).

    2. The 3rd Relic fragment is just west of it at (53,43)

    3. The 4th Relic fragment one is directly north of the 3rd at (52,41)

    4. The 2nd Relic fragment one is west of the 4th one at (51,41)

    Ride west back to Donova Snowden (31,44) while getting as many Moontouched Feather as possible on the way.

    Turn in [56] Threat of the Winterfall and [56] Winterfall Firewater, get the follow up [56] Falling to Corruption.


    1. Ride north, back to Timbermaw Hold, go through the tunnel to Felwood. As soon as you exit in Felwood, jump down west in Felpaw Village. Clear yourself a path to the camp which is on the upper level of Felpaw Village, northwest of the green pool.

    Clear the camp and you should find a “Deadwood Cauldron” (60,5). Click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [56] Mystery Goo.

    Now stay in this area and kill furbolgs until you finish [55] Deadwood of the North and find a Deadwood Ritual Totem, which can drop from any of these furbolgs. Right-click it to start the quest [55] Deadwood Ritual Totem. You should also have gathered 5 Deadwood Headdress Feathers by now, if not, kill a few more furbolgs.

    3. Go back to Nafien, turn in [55] Deadwood of the North, get the follow up [55] Speak to Salfa. Also turn in [55] Feathers for Nafien. It just gives Timbermaw reputation.

    Go through the tunnel, on the other side turn in [55] Speak to Salfa.

    Ride south to Donova Snowden, turn in [56] Mystery Goo, get [56] Toxic Horrors.

    If you haven’t gathered your 10 Moontouched Feathers yet, do it now.

    Go back to Felwood through the timbermaw tunnel.


    1. In Felwood, go southwest to the area marked on the map where you will find bears and wolves. Keep killing those until you have 11 Silvery Claws.

    Go southwest to the crater at (49,27), you’ll find plenty of Toxic Horrors there, kill them until you got 3 Toxic Horror Droplet. There’s more Toxic Horrors all around the big green pool just north of this crater.

    3. Go south to the ruins at (49.5,31) and click the Flute of the Ancients from your inventory. Some treant spirits will appear, especially one huge treant named Arei. If he’s not there, it means someone else is already escorting him. Go kill some treants and elementals while waiting. Get his quest [56] Ancient Spirit and escort Arei. He will do a full turn around the green pool, so I suggest you clear the toxic horrors around the crater before you start the escort. Let him be infront and get hit first or he won’t assist. The good thing is that he is quite a tank so you can let him tank a bit when there is multiple mobs. He will get back on the road after having done a full circle around the pool, 3 irontrees will ambush him at this point. Kill them fast one by one while Arei tanks the others. You will get a quest complete message normally.

    4. Normally, while doing the escort, you should have killed a few Irontree Stompers and got an Irontree Heart. If not, go back down and kill some more Irontree Stompers till you get one. This should complete [54] Silver Heart.

    5. Mount up and ride to Jaedenar. Go inside the Shadow Hold. Clear inside the hold further than when you doused the last 2 flames, past the red pool. Just a bit further down a slope you should find a room with an altar in it’s middle, 4 warlocks/darkweavers arouned it, channeling a ritual, and a succubus named Rakaiah infront.

    You can pull Rakaiah solo, the 4 warlocks might be aggro on you but won’t attack as long as you don’t directly attack them. After you got rid of Rakaiah, you might still be locked in combat mode because of the 4 warlocks, to lose combat mode you just have to run back some distance away from them until they forget you. Basically they never attack you unless you directly attack them. However the warlock’s imp pets will attack you and you should kill them.

    Kill the 2 warlocks/darkweavers which are in front of the altar.

    Then pull the mob on the right side of the room. He should also come solo.

    After that, kill the 2 warlocks which are behind the altar. When the room is clear, click on the Remains of Trey Lightforge on the altar, choose your reward and complete the quest [57] Retribution of the Light, get the follow up |57] The Remains of Trey Lightshadow.

    Go past the altar room and down a spiral, after a couple of pulls you’ll be facing a small bridge going up straight ahead and a slope going down to your left.

    Go left and keep going in that direction until you reach a big room where you’ll find Shadow Lord Fel’dan and his two succubus guards.

    It wasn’t an easy fight to solo, I basically used everything I had with the mage and rogue. I sheeped Shadow Lord Fel’dan and killed the two succubus fast. Same with rogue, I sapped the shadow lord and killed it last. With the warrior I used retaliation. If you can’t cc Fel’dan, kill him first. Don’t forget to loot Shadow Lord Fel’dan’s Head.

    This part of the dungeon is just much easier with a group, you can try it solo but I recommend at least finding a person to duo it with.

    Hearthstone back to Everlook.

    Fly to Forest Song, Ashenvale. Turn in [56] Ancient Spirit at Kayneth Stillwind (85,44). 10550xp on that quest, which is just as good if not better than what you get from most Outland quests. That’s why I always recommend to finish the old world quests before goign to Outland. You’ll see, there are more quests like this one.

    Fly to Emerald Sanctuary, Felwood. Turn in:

    • [57] The Remains of Trey Lightforge
    • [58] A Final Blow
    • [54] Silver Heart, get the follow up [54] Aquementas

    Fly to Rut’theran Village (5 min break). Go to the house west of the hyppogryph landing spot, turn in [55] Moontouched Wildkin. Get the follow up [57] Find Ranshalla.

    You should be level 57 by now, or pretty close.

    Level 57

    Go train your new skills, sell stuff, visit the AH and re-stock food/drink.

    When you’re ready to go again, go back to Everlook (hearthstone if it’s up, boat/flight if not).

    Get the following quests:

    • [56] Are We there, Yeti?
    • [56] Ursius of the Shardtooth
    • [60] Luck Be With You

    Go to the bank and put the four Relic Fragments there, we won’t be needing them for a while. Destroy the Flute of the Ancients. You can also bank or destroy your corrupted soul shards, we won’t be hunting in felwood anymore so they won’t be much of a use now. Same goes for your Cenarion Beacon. You can destroy it and get a new one if one day you wish to get those consumables, for whatever reason.


    1. Go southeast to Ice Thistle Hills (65,41). Kill Ice Thistle Yetis there until you have 10 Thick Yeti Fur.

    2. Get back on the road, ride south until (62,60), where you’ll find a small trail going west, just a bit further you’ll find a camp named Dun Mandarr (59,59). Kill the owlbeasts in it so that you can access the “Damaged Crate” in the camp.

    Click on the Damaged Crate, turn in the quest and get the follow up.

    3. Go east and you’ll find a wagon with a keg atop at (61,60) just west of the road. Right-click it, turn in and get the follow up [59] Enraged Wildkin.
    Next to the wagon you should see a crate half burried in the snow, called Jaron’s Supplies. Loot it.

    Get back on the road, go north a little and at (63,59) you’ll find Ranshalla, she is on the east side of the road at in front of the entrance to Owl Wing Thicket. If she’s not there, someone is probably doing the escort quest already, so go kill some owlbeasts while waiting for her to return. When you find her, turn in the quest [57] Find Ranshalla and get the follow up [59] Guardians of the Altar.

    Escort her to the cave, inside the cave she’ll start to cast a spell, while she does, click on the stave infront of her named “Fire of Elune” and it will be lit. You can drink/eat while she is channeling her spell, you don’t have to light the torch immediately.

    Always let her in front and get the first hit. Escort her inside the 5 caves and light the 5 torches. Then she will go to the altar of elune, which you will have to click too. Then a beautiful scene will happen and you will have the quest complete message at the end of it.

    While escorting her you should have normally looted the Blue-Feathered Amulet you need for the other quest. If you didn’t, keep killing these owlbeasts until one drops.

    5. Get back on the road and ride south, go over the ice bridge and keep going south until you discover Darkwhisper Gorge and get the complete message for [56] Strange Sources.

    6. Go backwards, cross the bridge again, then go west till (59,62), where you’ll find a path going down to Frostwhisper Gorge. Look for Frostmaul Shards.


    You can gather all 4 without having to fight a single giant. If you aggro one just run away, they don’t run fast and they leash quickly. If you don’t manage it it’s ok, there’s no follow up, just abandon the quest.

    Hearthstone back to Everlook.

    Turn in:

    • [60] Luck Be With You, don’t get the follow up
    • [56] Are We there, Yeti?, get the follow up [58] Are We There, Yeti?

    Sell junk and repair.

    1. Now we’re gonna hunt Ursius.


    Just follow the route marked on the map below, it’s very accurate (yes I actually followed that stupid bear for 20 minutes just for you guys). He walks very slowly and he tries to walk as close to the top of each mountain as possible.


    2. Ride west/northwest to Starfall Village and turn in [59] Enraged Wildkin.

    3. Go west/southwest to Donova Snowden, turn in:

    • [56] Strange Sources
    • [56] Toxic Horrors, get the follow up [57] Winterfall Runners

    Now we’re gonna hunt for the Winterfall Runners, check the map below to see their route. When you find the 3 Winterfall Runners (lvl 57), you don’t have to kill all 3. Just kill one fast and run away, come back and loot the Winterfall Crate. They all drop it.


    Once you have the crate, go back to Donova Snowden.
    ==Warning== When you turn in the quest, she will walk to the lake and then 3 Furbolgs will spawn and attack you. So just stand back, wait for Donova to come back and get the follow up [59] High Chief Winterfall. If you aggro any of those furbolgs, just run away, killing them is pointless.

    Go back to Everlook. Turn in [56] Ursius of the Shardtooth, don’t get the follow up.


    1. Go east of Everlook to Winterfall Village (66,33), kill 8 Winterfall Shamans and 8 Winterfall Ursa there. There are more of them up the mountain in the southern part of the camp. If you run out of mobs to kill you can do the next step while waiting.

    2. Go to the southeastern part of the camp, up a small path that leads to a cave (69,38). In that cave you’ll find High Chief Winterfall, along with one guard. Use your cooldowns and pots if necessary. In the worst case solo down the chief fast, loot him and run away (watch out for Winterfall Runners, they might gank up on you if they happen to pass by).

    While looting High Chief Winterfall you should find an item called Crudely-written Log. Loot and right-click it to start the quest [59] The Final Piece.

    If you still haven’t found a Winterfall Ritual Totem by now (which is very unlikely), kill some more furbolgs until one drops.

    3. Once that is done, go south over the mountain to Ice Thistle Hills (65,41). This time enter the cave further to the east up the hills (68,42) and kill Ice Thistle Matriachs/Patriachs until you get 2 Pristine Yeti Horn.

    4. Clear the way out, go back to Everlook. Turn in [58] Are We There, Yeti? and get the follow up.
    Find a goblin named Legacki, she stands to the left of the inn. Target her and right click Umi’s Mechanical Yeti from your inventory.

    5. Ride west to Donova Snowden. Turn in [59] High Chief Winterfall and [59] The Final Piece. Get the follow up [59] Words of the High Chief.

    6. Ride north to Salfa, turn in [58] Winterfall Activity. Now you should be either Neutral with the Timbermaw or pretty close. If you still need a bit more reputation, go kill some furbolgs in the nearby camps until you have 5 Winterfall Spirit Beads. Then go back to Salfa and turn them in and this should be enough. If it’s still not enough, well, this means you’re a very sneaky person, and also that you need to kill some more furbolgs until you’re neutral.

    Once you’re neutral with the Timbermaw, enter the tunnel. Find a furbolgs named Kernda, he’s in the middle tunnel going north. Turn in [55] Deadwood Ritual Totem and [56] Winterfall Ritual Totem.

    Go to Felwood through the tunnel. Go to Talonbranch Glade, fly to Emerald Sanctuary. Turn in [59] Words of the High Chief.

    You should be level 58 by now.

    Level 58

    Fly to Gadgetzan (10 Min break). Find a goblin named Sprinkle (she’s close to the horde exit). Scare her away with the mechanical yeti.

    Ride to Lost Rigger Cove (68,41), inside lost rigger cove go south to the other side of the pirate camp and then west until you find a stone circle (70,49).

    Open the blue bag named Eridan’s Supplies, loot everything from it. Then step inside the circle and click the Book of Aquor. Aquementas, a lvl 54 elemental, will come to the circle and attack you. You don’t have to kill it, just have to stand in the stone circle and let him attack you once. If you want to kill it, just know that he is immune to frost and deals frost damage (mages use Frost Ward). He should be a cakewalk at level 58.
    You should now have the Silver Totem of Aquementas. If you do, you can destroy the “Book of Aquor”, the “Silver Claws” and the “Irontree Heart”.

    Ride back to Gadgetzan. Fly to Marshall’s Refuge in Un’goro Crater.

    Find the goblin named Quixxil and scare him with the mechanical yeti.

    Go inside the crystal cave and talk to J.D. Collie, turn in [54] Aquementas and get the follow up [54] Linken’s Adventure. Go to Linken and turn it in, don’t get the follow up unless you got a few people to help you. You’d need at least a healer and a tank type. Blazerunner is a lvl 56 Elite fire elemental and he hits for 400.

    Anyway here is how to defeat Blazerunner, the last boss of the long quest chain “Linken’s Adventure”. Go to the top of fire plume ridge, clear all the elementals around to make sure they don’t add during the fight. Equip the Silver Totem of Aquementas and put it on a hotkey. Click it to dispel Blazerunner’s aura right at the start and everytime it reappears. Blazerunner is somewhat invincible when his aura is on, he keeps knockbacking people and every damage he takes is divided by 10. So be sure to always keep that aura dispelled.
    Another thing, fight him inside his cave with your back facing the walls, so if he knockbacks you when the aura appears again you won’t end up being tossed off the mountain or into adds.
    He’s a tough fight, I did it with a level 57 Priest, a level 55 Paladin and me (lvl 57 rogue) and it wasn’t easy. On the other hand I soloed it with my lvl 57 frost mage, thanks to kiting, it took time and several attempts though. So I recommend saving that quest for when you are level 60 and have time to spend on it, unless you got enough people to help you immediately. Anyway if you do manage to kill Blazerunner, you must also go loot the Ornate Chest in his cave. Then turn in the quest at Linken.

    Hearthstone back to Everlook, turn in [58] Are We There, Yeti?

    Fly to Rut’theran Village, go to the house west of the Hyppogryph landing spot, turn in [59] Guardians of the Altar, get the follow up [57] Wildkin of Elune. Go inside Darnassus, go north to the Cenarion Enclave and find Arch Druid Staghelm (35,10), he’s on the top floor. Turn in [57] Wildkin of Elune.

    Go train your new skills.

    Go to Ironforge, go to the Hall of Explorers, turn in [54] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way.

    Your quest log should look like this now:

    • [55] Sister Pamela
    • [52] Duke Nicholas Zverenhoff
    • [52] The Everlook Report
    • [56] Troubled Spirits of Kel’Theril

    So you are level 58 now. Many people ask if they should just go to Outland at level 58 and never go back to the old world. This is in my experience a mistake. As we’ve seen in this chapter, we’re already getting 10K+ Exp for certain quests already in Felwood and Winterspring. The Plaguelands circuits are just as good, it would be a shame to miss that. Not to mention, if you go to Outland at level 58, you won’t have access to all quests, there are some quests with a level 61+ requirement already in Hellfire Penninsula. So yes, that’s really not the most efficient way.

    However what I recommend is:

    Go to Outland and do the first few quests to get some nice gear upgrades, unlock your tradeskills past 300 and get the flight path to Shattrath. Open up my 60-65 alliance guide, follow the guide until step 7. when you arrive at the Temple of Telhamat, get the flight path (buy the first aid book if you wish), then ride to Shattrath (infos on how to do that are somewhere in the guide, use the search function to find it). Get the flight path in Shattrath, then take a portal back to Ironforge and get back to the guide 50-60 guide.

    This is optional, it’s entirely up to you. If you just want to keep following this guide until the end before going to Outland, that’s fine. If you just want to go to Outland and never come back to this guide, it’s up to you, it’s not the most efficient way to do it, but it will still work out in the end.

    Now with that said, let’s get started with those plaguelands circuits!

    Sell and repair, check the AH, resupply food and drink (4 stacks).

    Get the following quest item from your bank:

    Everlook Report

    Take the tram to Stormwind.


    1. Go to Stormwind Keep and get the quest [62] The First and the Last from King Varian Wrynn.

    2. Go talk to Mathias Shaw in the Old Town, he’s on the first floor of the big building named SI:7.

    Turn in the quest [62] The First and the Last, get the follow up, turn it in and get the follow up [62] Flint Shadowmore.

    Go to the inn and make Stormwind your home location.

    Fly to Aerie Peak, Hinterlands. Follow the road southwest to Hillsbrad Foothills.


    Go west/northwest along the mountain until you hit the river. Follow the river north towards Chillwind Point, then go straight north to Western Plaguelands until you find Chillwind Camp (43,85).

    Get the flight path. Turn in [62] Flint Shadowmore and get the follow up [62] The Eastern Plagues.
    Get [52] Clear the Way from Commander Ashlam Valorfist(the quest won’t appear over his head, so just find him).
    Turn in [52] The Everlook Report at Argent Officer Pureheart, also complete the quest Argent Dawn Commission, you will receive a trinket.
    When you kill undeads while having this trinket equiped, you can collect Scourgestones from their bodies. I suggest equiping it from now on everytime you kill undeads in eastern and western plaguelands.

    Turning in these Scourgestones at Argent Officer Pureheart gets you reputation increases with the Argent Dawn and a token. These tokens are the only way to raise your faction with the Argent Dawn at a certain point in reverred, so save them until then. Check blizzard’s official homepage to see what rewards you get at the different faction levels. It is also rumored that the Argent Dawn reputation will be used in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, so that’s one more reason to do those plaguelands circuits.

    Don’t get the other quests.


    1. Take the eastern path to Sorrow hill (46,81). Kill 10 Skeletal Flayers and 10 Slavering Ghouls.

    2. Go back to Chillwind Camp and turn in [52] Clear the Way, get the two follow up [53] The Scourge Cauldrons and [56] All Along the Watchtowers.

    Go to High Priestess MacDonnell and turn in [53] The Scourge Cauldrons. Get the follow up [53] Target: Felstone Field.

    3. Go back through Sorrow Hill and enter the Ruins of Andorhal by the south gate (49,73).

    In Andorhal try to avoid the roads as much as possible, as level 56 elite abominations patrol them. So just clear yourself a path through the destroyed houses. Also avoid the middle of the town of course, there’s a huge bunch of mobs there and Araj the Summoner (lvl 61 elite).

    Go to the Fourth Watch Tower (46,70). Clear what’s in your way. You can drop the torch at the entrance of the watch tower without aggroing the Skeletal Warlord if you just get close to it without being in it’s line of sight. Look for the Beacon Torch in your inventory and click it while standing next to the tower’s door.

    5. Go to the Tower One which is direclty to the west (40,71). It’s close to the western entrance to Andorhal. Mark it with the torch just like you did for the previous tower.

    6. Go to Tower Two, northeast of tower one (42,66). It’s close to the northern entrance to Andorhal. Mark it.

    7. Tower Three is right behind tower two, northeast of it. Be careful of the scarlet patrol and abomination patrol when you go there (44,63). Mark tower three. You can destroy the Beacon Torch.


    1. Get out of Andorhal by the north gate then go northwest to Felstone Field (37,58).

    Clear yourself a path to the Cauldron in the middle of the field, when you get close, Cauldron Lord Bilemaw will spawn, kill it and loot the Felstone Field Cauldron Key from him, then go to the cauldron and click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [53] Return to Chillwind Camp.

    2. In the Felstone Field, go to the houses on the north side of the field, enter the one which is the most to the west (37,54).

    On the 2nd floor of the house you’ll find Janice Felstone, get the quest [52] Better Late than Never.

    Go to the next house at (38,55) and find Janice’s Parcel inside it. Click it, turn in the quest, then click it again and get the follow up [52] Better Late Than Never.

    3. Ride back to Chillwind Camp, avoid Andorhal this time.

    Turn in [56] All Along the Watchtowers. Get the follow ups [55] Scholomance and [60] Alas, Andorhal.

    Turn in [55] Scholomance at Alchemist Arbington and get the follow up [57] Skeletal Fragments.

    Turn in [53] Return to Chillwind Camp, get the follow up [55] Target: Dalson’s Tears.
    Also get the quest [58] The Mark of the Lightbringer from Anchorite Truuen.


    1. Go north, around Andorhal and then east to Dalson’s Tears (45,52), it’s the field directly east of Felstone Field. Clear yourself a path to the Scourge Cauldron, when you get close Cauldron Lord Malvinious will spawn, kill it and loot his key, go to the Cauldron and click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Return to Chillwind Camp.

    2. Go to the houses on the north side of Dalson’s Tears, enter the eastern one (47,51). Clear what’s inside and look on the floor for Mrs. Dalson’s Diary, click it and choose “complete quest”.

    ==Note== As of last patch, the outhouse (48,49) is sometimes bugged, it’s impossible to interract with it, making it impossible to kill Farmer Dalson and to get the cabinet key. If you can’t interract with the outhouse, just forget this quest and move on to step 3.

    Get out of the barn and look around for a Wandering Skeleton, there is only one of this kind and he roams around the barn, so keep killing stuff around the barn until you find it, kill it and loot “Dalson Outhouse Key”. Go behind the barn, you’ll find an Outhouse (48,49). Open it, kill Farmer Dalson, loot Dalson Cabinet Key.

    Go to the other house now (47,50), on the 2nd floor of it you’ll find a “Locked Cabinet”, click it and turn in the quest.

    3. Go straight north to the Northridge Lumbermill, when you are next to the lumbermill, go northeast of it, follow a trail going down to a destroyed wagon. You’ll find Kirsta Deepshadow there (51,28), get the quest [56] Unfinished Business.

    4. You can find the Scarlets Knights and Mages you need to kill for the quest just southeast of Kirsta, on the road to Hearthglen. For the Hunters and Medics go to the camp southeast (51,44).

    5. When you completed the kill list, go back to Kirsta and turn in [56] Unfinished Business, get the follow up.


    1. Go back on the road just east of Kirsta. And head north, at (54,34) the road forks off to the left and right. Go right and up the slope you will find Hunstman Radley (57,35). She can be pulled solo if you wait for the right moment: when the mage close to her goes far enough.

    2. Get back on the main road and this time at the fork go left, keep going north until you hit the watch tower (53,24). Kill the 2 guards infront of it, clear the 1st floor of the tower carefully, then wait for Cavalier Durgen to show up. He goes to the top of the tower then walks back to the entrance. Wait for him to come down, you can’t kill him when he’s on top, he has 3 guards with him there.

    After killing Durgen, clear the way to the top of the tower, there are 2 scarlet mages on top of the tower, you can actually pull just 1 if you take your time and body pull carefully. After you have cleared the top of the tower, you should find a Holy Coffer, right-click it and loot the Mark of the Lightbringer.

    ==Warning== Sometimes there is a high-level rare elite on top of the tower in addition to the above mentioned mobs.

    3. After this, go back to Kirsta Deepshadow by going southwest and jumping down in the crater where she is. Turn in the quest [57] Unfinished Business, get the follow up.

    4. Mount up and ride to Hearthglen (46,18), trying to avoid most mobs on your way. When you are at the entrance, open your map and search the following location with your cursor: (45,18). Now clear your way to that location, where you should see a tower. Kill the two guards at the entrance and climb up the tower. Run around on the top floor until you get a quest complete message.

    5. Exit the tower, mount up and get back to Kirsta. Turn the quest in.

    Hearthstone to Stormwind, go to the Cathedral Square and inside the City Hall (48,32) on the 2nd floor. Turn in [52] Better Late than Never.

    Now try to find Ol’Emma, she wanders in between the Cathedral Square and the Trade district. Shouldn’t be hard to find because you’ll see the yellow “?” on the minimap. She makes a stop in a house bordering the canals close to the Cathedral district too (52,41).

    When you find her turn in [52] Good Natured Emma. Get the follow up [52] Good Luck Charm.

    You should be level 59 by now or close.

    Level 59

    ==Note== You should have a few Bone Fragments in your inventory, don’t sell them, we’ll need them for a quest later on.

    Sell junk, repair, re-stock consumables.

    Get the following items from the bank:

    • Studies in Spirit Speaking
    • 30 Dark Iron Scraps

    Fly to Chillwind Camp.

    In Chillwind Camp, turn in [55] Return to Chillwind Camp, get the follow up [55] Target: Writhing Haunt.

    Now get ready for an escort quest, it’s rather easy. When you’re ready, turn in [58] The Mark of the Lightbringer, get the follow up [58] Tomb of the Lightbringer. Do the escort until you get the complete message.


    1. Go north/northeast, swim across the river and go to the Writhing Haunt (52,66). Clear a path to the scourge cauldron, when you get close to it, Cauldron Lord Razarch will spawn, kill it and loot the key. Clear what’s around the Cauldron and go click it, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Return to Chillwind Camp.

    2. Directly north of the cauldron in a small house you should find a tauren lying down on the floor, Mulgris Deepriver. Get his quest [54] The Wildlife Suffers Too.

    **From now on kill any Diseased Wolf you find on your way until you have completed [54]The Wildlife Suffers too**

    3. Go north/northwest to an area just north of Dalson’s Tears (45,40), where you will find plenty of wolves to complete the quest. Kill everything in this area until you have 8 Diseased Wolf Kills. Also note that the spiders in this area are placeholders for wolves, so you have to kill spiders too if you need more wolves.

    4. Go southwest to the Felstone Field, go into the left house (38,54) on the 2nd Floor. Turn in the quest [52] Good Luck Charm at Janice Felstone and get the follow up [54] Two Halves Become One.

    Get out of the house and look for a Jabbering Ghoul.


    This ghoul wanders the area in front of the barn. If it’s not there just keep the area clean until it respawns. Kill it and it will drop a “Good Luck Other-Half-Charm”.

    Once you have the other half charm, go back to Janice Felstone, right click on the other-half-charm in your inventory. Turn in the quest.

    5. Go back to Chillwind Camp.

    Turn in:

    • [55] Return to Chillwind Camp and get the follow up [58] Target: Gahron’s Withering.
    • [58] Tomb of the Lightbringer


    Ride east through Sorrow hill, then northeast, across the river and to the Writhing Haunt. Clear the way to the house with the tauren lying down on the floor, turn in [54]The Wildlife Suffers too, get the follow up [56]The Wildlife Suffers Too.

    **From now on kill any Diseased Grizzly you see until you have killed 8**

    2. Go east to Gahron’s Withering (62,57). Clear a path to the Scourge Cauldron, when you get close Cauldron Lord Soulwrath will, appear, kill it. He’s harder than the other cauldron lords, he knockbacks and silences, so be careful where you fight him. Loot his key then go to the Cauldron, turn in the quest and get the follow up [58] Return to Chillwind Camp.

    3. Go to the area which is in between Garon’s Withering and the Writhing Haunt. There should be plenty of grizzlies there. If not, kill spiders, they are placeholders for grizzlies. Kill everything in this area until you have 8 Diseased Grizzly Kills, then go turn in [56] The Wildlife Suffers Too at the Writhing Haunt. Don’t get the follow up unless you are a mage (teleport), it requires a trip to Darnassus and we won’t be going anywhere near it in the guide. It’s 8450 xp reward and a decent cape, so it’s up to you if you wanna make the trip to Darnassus or not.

    4. Ride northeast until you hit Thondroril River, go north along the river bank, then cross the river so you are on the eastern bank and ride north until you find a house. In front of it you’ll see Tirion Fordring, get his 3 quests:

    • [56] Demon Dogs
    • [56] Blood Tinged Skies
    • [56] Carrion Grubbage

    From now on, kill on sight the following:

    • Plaguehound Runt
    • Carrion Worm
    • Plaguebat

    5. Go south along the river and then east into Eastern Plaguelands.


    1. Go southeast while killing everything on the way. Find the Marris Stead but don’t get close to it! There’s a lvl 62 Elite NPC there, hits like a truck. Go around the Marris Stead so that you are on the east of it (29,74).

    Just a bit closer to Nathanos lightcaller you’ll find “Mangled Human Remains” (28,74). Loot the SI:7 Insignia (Turyen) from it.
    Go a bit closer to Nathanos, on a small mound right infront of him you should find other human remains (27,74). Loot Fredo’s Insignia from it. This is as close as you can get to Nathanos without aggroing it, and you should get the “Blightcaller Uncovered” (Complete) message. Go backwards a bit and then south, you should find the last human remains close to the road (28,79). Loot Rutger’s Insignia.

    2. Go southeast to Darrowshire, keep killing everything on sight that you need for quests, there should be plenty.

    Inside Darrowshire, find a small destroyed house on the western side of Darrowshire. You should find Pamela Redpath there, turn in the quest [55] Sister Pamela and get the follow up [55] Pamela’s Doll.

    Now you must find the 3 parts of pamela’s doll, they can be in any of the other houses in Darrowshire, mostly on the 2nd floor of it. Look on the floor for some brown objet. Everytime you get close to one of the doll parts, a level 55 ghost spawns and attack you.

    Once you have Pamela’s Doll’s Left Side, Right Side and Head. Right click them in your inventory to combine them. Go to Pamela and turn in the quest. Get the two follow up quests:

    • [56] Uncle Carlin
    • [56] Auntie Marlene


    1. Go back towards the Marris Stead and keep doing wide circles around it killing everything until you got 30 Plaguebat and 20 Plaguehound Runts slain. This is the best area to find them.

    2. Go east to the area north of the infectis scar and Corin’s Crossing. Kill everything around until you have 5 Plaguehound Kills. Focus on Carrion Grubs as well.

    3. Once you got 5 Plaguehound kills, go to the area which is north of Blackwood Lake (51,41). You should find Frenzied Plaguehounds around this area, also kill Carrion Devourers in the way.

    4. Once you have 5 Frenzied Plaguehound kills, go southeast, around the Pestilent scar by the north of it and then go southeast to Light’s Hope Chapel (81,59).

    Get the new flight path.

    Turn in:

    • [52] Duke Nicholas Zverenhoff
    • [56] Uncle Carlin, get the follow up [55] Defenders of Darrowshire

    Go inside the chapel, get the quest [60] Binding the Dreadnaught from Korfax, Champion of the Light. Turn it in immediately, since you already have the 30 Dark Iron Scraps.

    5. Just a bit south of Light’s Hope Chapel find Caretaker Alen (79,63). Get the quests [55] Zaeldarr the Outcast and [60] The Restless Souls from him.

    6. Check how many “Slab of Carrion Worm Meat” you need, then go kill in the area south and southwest of Light’s Hope Chapel until you got your 15 Carrion Worm Meat.

    Go back to Light’s Hope Chapel, fly to Chillwind Camp.

    Turn in [58] Return to Chillwind Camp, go to Commander Ashlam Valorfirst and complete the quest “Mission Accomplished!”

    Turn in [62] The Eastern Plagues at Flint Shadowmore, get the follow up [62] The Blightcaller Cometh.

    Hearthstone to Stormwind, go to Stormwind Keep and turn in [62] The Blightcaller Cometh at King Varian Wrynn, don’t take the follow up.

    You should have dinged level 60 by now. Congratulations, you are ready to go to Outland. However, if you like it here, you can do the following additional circuits, I actually recommend it. It’s nice to go to Outland already close to level 61, this means you probably won’t ever have to do any instances or grind to keep up with the guide’s recommended level, or better, you’ll be ahead of the guide in levels and will ding level 70 with a lot of quest circuits left to do, which is a very nice way to make gold at level 70.
    However, it’s entirely up to you, going now to Outland is more than fine.

    ==Warning== Due to time constraints, I haven’t been able to revamp the optional circuits yet. It should be done in the coming months though.

    Level 60

    Go to Tiron Fordring and turn in the following quests:

    • [56] Demon Dogs
    • [56] Blood Tinged Skies
    • [56] Carrion Grubbage

    I still haven’t had the time to work on my additional circuits, so you should still have these quests in your log:

    • Defenders of the Darrowshire
    • Zaeldarr the Outcast
    • The Restless Souls
    • Skeletal Fragments
    • Alas, Andorhal
    • Troubled Spirits of Kel’Theril

    You can either abandon them or try to finish them on your own, then simply move on to my Outland guides.

    I hope you enjoyed this guide. If you want to return the favor, please try to contribute.

        Awesome Guide so farThank you James for a perfect guide so far… Im lvl 51 Rogue and loving it… however there is 1 thing i must comment on…. i completely disliked the fact that most of lvl 50 must be spent doing Maradaun….. i understand how instances contribute to the guide but 75% was done in about 3 runs… i was lucky i had a guildie group! Thats about all Great guide Overall.

    So I finnaly did it completelyHello Jame,
    First of all, I’d like to heartly thank you for this guide. I started at lvl 31 and ended on 60 with your guide on my second monitor while playing WoW. It was really great but for sake of being your guide even more better or because of constructive criticism here are my hints

    1)In first part (30-41) your pictures and then text is pretty nice synchronized, I mean “step 1” belongs to nuber “1” on the map, “step 2” to number “2” etc. But in second and third part there is nothing like this. You would say that it’s not so important but on the contrary it is one of the most important in my opinion because you can get very easily lost in the huge ammount of text and such hints like those “synchronized steps” makes one even more quicker. This is why I couldn’t keep your xp/h speed.

    2)I’ve gave up some of your parts because they were really outdated either because of current PvP world situation or bots in felwood etc. F.e. if you will do Silithus part, there should you kill those humanoids who drops twilight stuff but there are about 10 other players grinding them for reputation so you have to wait and wait.

    3)I couldn’t managed any single time to get a group to run instance via your guides. When you said, it should give you 3/4 of your level, it gave me about 1/5 and I was happy. F.e. I never found group who would like to do quests in maraudon. It always ment for me “ahh the grinding time”. I also couldnt find a group for about 2 days for elite quests in searing gorge so I have to give up.

    4)Infamous stranglethorn vale. Grinding would be every time better than doing STV on PvP servers because I was like 1/3 – 1/2 of your XP/h while doing STV. So many gankers, I remember being killed 5 times in a row while killing those goblins because horde raided to ZG and they were passing nearby me to gather up.

    Overally I think that 1) and 4) are most important part of my critique but I’d like to say once again that this guide is about 9.5/10 for me and it mean a lot for me !

    Good, but difficultFirst off leme say thank you.
    This guide is massive and must have taken you a long time to write, but I think there are some MAJOR holes in it.

    1- Its somtimes hard to understand. I’d come to a part, read it and go “what?”. Have to read it a few times to understand.
    2- I liked how in the first guide when come to a circuit, you’d have the objectives numbered with the picture. That was taken out or forgotten in the 2nd and 3rd. A disapointment and goes along with complaint number 1.
    3- Its pretty easy to miss things. With how much is typed, its hard to keep up with everything. I actually went back a few times to either pick up a mission or finish a mission that was somewhat hidden in the text.
    4- The instances. I did a total of 3 instances before 59. Once I hit 59 I said forget the guide I’m just gunna join my friends in PvP and instances till I hit 60. Each time I came to the part where you said to do an instance, I freaked out. The 3 I did, I never came close to what you had gotten. 3/4 of a level, half a level or whatnot. I usually got about 4 or 5 bubs from just the kills.
    5- Quest, like number 1 its hard to keep track of everything. You put up what quests where supposed to be in your quest book once or twice but that wasn’t enough. MUCH more of these would be great and would help me know what I should have and what I should get rid of.

    Don’t take all that too negativly, we all make mistakes and I just found those to be some major issues and ways to improve.
    Shortten it, simply it, a bit more refrences and a few more organized points would help.
    Great job with the guides, I recommend it to so many of my friends.

    IncredibleGuide was very helpful, found out about it on my first 60 and i was PISSED because u couldnt use it before, but i decided to make and alt, got him to 30 and followed all 3 chapters, i just wish u had a 15-30 guide so you will have a introduction or epolouge for ur 3 chapters. Also some minor problems with some parts, because of mandatory instance runs throughout the entire guide but wasn’t you fault. 9.5-10/10

    Simply amazing!Hi,

    I left Wow last February 2006 with a 50 level rogue, and completely clogged on this level (bored to grind some levels ago).
    At first October I’ve decided to reactivate my Wow account and run to level 60 (before expansion comes). Of course, I’m a casual player, and like to enjoy the game in all of his splendour (prehaps if I’d have some more hours to spend, I’d grind much more, and ding 60 more faster).
    The fact is that, thanks to your guide, I’ve boosted my game experience, and I’ve reached 54 in about 2 weeks of gameplay (about 2 hours a day, 5 days a week).
    I am not english native, but think that your guide (at least the part that I have studied now, 50-60) it’s enought clear to have a valid guideline to walk the way to 60.
    It’s true that sometimes have to go to allakhazam or similar pages to complete the info of some quests, but the real important thing is to have a robust guideline, like this, to trace.

    So, thank you very much for this (and your others) valuable document!!!

    Update to guideJames,

    First of all, thanks for the guides. I’ve been using them since around lvl 42 and they’ve been a big help.

    Second, I’m not sure where the comments from the other posters are coming from. Other than the ocassional typo, I’ve never been confused by your guides. I haven’t followed your instance recommendations exactly, but the guild runs I’ve done have been around the same time and have yielded comparable xp to what you suggest.

    For the most part, I think the guides have withstood the test of time. I’ve come close to posting a comment here and there, but it hasn’t been a major thing. Now I have one.

    I got to the part in the 50-60 guide where I’m on the Kirsta quests. Did first one no problem. Got to the second one and where you say you should be able to pull Huntsman Radley solo – big change here. He is now surrounded by 3 caster types. I’ve died three times trying to solo this. I think this is significant enough that a guide update is in order.

    Thanks again tho. I’m going to rate the guides a 10 as I just registered and these are a huge help.

      Nov 4, 2006 @ 11:32

      Thanks for pointing thisThanks for pointing this out, I’ll check it out. It might be (and I hope it’s that) that the spawns were bugged when you did the quest, because this quest is meant to be soloable, and radley shouldn’t be surrounded by casters. Hope they didn’t change that and that it was just bad luck for you.

    Well I’ve had a ton of funWell I’ve had a ton of fun following this guide, but sadly it’s almost over. Seven bars away from hitting 60, and it’s all rested.

    Just a few things regarding other comments:
    – I didn’t find a single part hard to understand, it was all well-written.
    – Huntsman Radley did have mobs around her (Radley is a her, despite what the guide says) but if you’re very careful, they can each be pulled solo. If you have a ranged attack (almost everyone does) shooting Radley’s pet can get her to follow you without pulling the other Scarlet near her, if you’re lucky.

    Also, one last thing, when doing laps around the Marris Stead in EPL for the dogs and bats quests, I ran into a level 60 elite (Duskwing, a huge bat) a few times on the east side of the farm, who totally wasted me each time. Not that I ran into him on purpose, those bats just love to Fear me into him. So I kept all my killing to the west side of the Marris Stead. Maybe just toss in a little warning that Duskwing might be around.

    But yeah, wonderful guide, I loved it!

    <3When i found your 30-40 guide i just had to try it out, picked up an old lvl 30 rogue i hadnt played in a year, and now, a few weeks later it’s lvl 59 and there hasnt been a dull moment.

    Great job on all the three guides. I cant begin to imagine how much work must have gone into it. Had no problems following the “instructions” but i can imagine people who have to tab out to windows all the time could get confused. So if you dont have multiple monitors (as i’m lucky enough to have) you really should print this one. Well worth the paper&ink :p

    The best Alliance leveling guide in existence to date.I found these series of guides a while back, almost a year ago it seems, when leveling my original character. I decided to try and use it, because aimlessly instancing/questing just became annoying at one point. I started the guide at level 44 on my Hunter (NElf), and WoW, it worked amazingly well. It makes leveling go by in a flash. Even as a total noob to the game, I followed it word for word, and ultimately I was left satisfied and happy. The guide isn’t 100% on the dot, because we cant do EVERYTHING James did. But in the end, and overall, it works. I went from level 44 to level 60 in under 3 weeks.

    I came back to this guide with my girlfriends old character, a level 30 NElf Druid. Mind you, this was roughly 2 weeks ago when this happened- loooong after I had originally used the guide on my Hunter. I started it at level 30, followed it word for word like last time, and because of my current experience over the last year of playing, I went from level 30 to level 55 in 2 weeks of playing on and off. 2 weeks. Level 30-55. I didn’t waste my time doing other things on WoW, I went straight for the gold (/pun). Now, with the help of this guide, I’m almost 4 levels away from raiding with my new character, stacked with at least 100 gold, and left with a sense (once again) of complete satisfaction. I’ve also recommended this guide to everyone whom asks how I leveled so quickly (which has been happening a lot… I recommended it to my entire guild).

    I’m not trying to kiss anyones ass, but James did an amazing job with this guide. A truly one-of-a-kind job that I have yet to find elsewhere.

    James, whoever and wherever you are, thank you for your time and effort put into this game and guide. Without this, I’m positive hundreds of people out in this world would be in a different situation regarding WoW. You’ve truly done something amazing.

    ~ Khronis/60 NElf Hunter on Eredar
    ~ Ezayula/55 NElf Druid on Eredar
    ~ Klaravoyia/60 Troll Priest on Andorhal

    Thank you.

          31 priestI started with my 30 priest and so far im 31. I like the detail in this guide and I am going to try it out. Might start it with my 40 Hunter also. I have many alts so I am going to figure out if this guide works and use it if it does.

          The flaw everyone notices is how little exp they get in instances. The reason is that you didn’t post what levels you should get. If everyone got level 40’s for SM then they would get very little exp. So I figure you should just get until how much exp he got by running as many instances that you need.

          • img
            Déc 13, 2006 @ 3:45

            Instances vs GrindingLots of people seem to think that instances are not good exp/hour, but they can be decent, if they are done right. If you..

            1. Make sure you have ALL the available quests.
            2. Do ALL those quests in ONE run.
            3. Put a BALANCED group together, QUICKLY.
            4. Don’t waste time (with people going AFK, people leaving and having to be replaced, people having phone calls, wipes, etc..)

            Then you can net an exp/hour rate that is at -least- as fast as grinding, get some nice blue items (which will up your dps and survivability, making it easier to get better exp while doing other things) and is a lot less boring than simply grinding.

            In my opinion, if you want blue items and find grinding to be too boring, do instances. If you need money for things like buying your mount, then grind.

    Nov 29, 2006 @ 21:30

    About the instances…Are people doing all the quests for the instances? Jame doesn’t always mention them explicitly, but they aren’t hard to look up. I’ve found that if you do an instance run and get all the quests done along the way, the experience matches up pretty nicely with what he says you’ll get.

    Nov 30, 2006 @ 21:13

      Slight change to the Searing Gorge route..Worth pointing this out, ’cause it puzzled me for a while.

      The Grimeslit Outhouse Key that drops from random dark iron dwarves in Searing Gorge.. NOW LOOTS TO YOUR KEYRING, NOT YOUR INVENTORY.

      Check your keyring and click the key to start the quest. Makes no sense to me, but obviously Blizz know better than we do. =)

        GuideIve used this guide almost word for word since level 30, its been great and i thought i’d just register to thank you for getting me to 60 in just over 1 month 🙂

        however if i had to criticise the guide at all i think that you give a misleading amount of exp for the instances.

        once again, thanks 🙂

        oh – P.S since the recent patch theres a draeni in Chillwind camp, and if you get his quest it ties in very well with the quest where you have to kill the guy in the tower near heathglen, i soloed it, and the follow up is also good exp, soloable also.

    Faster, faster, faster!First time I’ve done 50-60 since they added the new flight paths in Ratchet and Un’Goro. The level 54 route from Winterspring > Un’Goro > Ratchet netted me 61k/hour on a combat rogue, without rested bonus.


    Considering I had already done [51] Roll the Bones on the previous un’goro run, I’m pretty sure it’s possible to do 63-64k/hr on this route. And all thanks to the new flight paths!

    some level 51 quests
    You might consider adding the Alterac Valley quests to the low 50 range. The main quest, killing Drek’Thar, gives 9500 exp and incredible items for the level. Each of the “assault a mine/tower/graveyard” quest gives 6600. Each upgrade to the trinket (at honor levels) is 6600.

    The “locate the stormpike banner” quest gives 6600 and is easily soloable. Additionaly one kills haripes for exp while completing it.

    Still Something WrongMe again 🙂

    Well anyway, I hit 50 after following your first two guides and I just finished the first round of Searing Gorge which was supposed to make me hit 51… Well I didn’t even make halfway.

    So I keep thinking that I must be doing something wrong, or that you have been getting way more instance exp than I thought. However, even if you managed to get half a level in Maraudon as you recommend, I still would not have hit 51 (recall, I am unable to instance in beta because there are not enough people leveling).

    So I keep thinking something must be wrong. Then I thought about it and actually I remember they just changed the experience levels – what I mean is, a level 48 used to be the lowest “green” monster to a level 60 person, but now it’s grey. The lowest green is now 52 or more (I know it’s not <51 because a 51 is grey to my 60). Which means they may have changed the exp you gain from mobs as they get further away from your level.

    So if that's true, I can see why I would be having trouble with your guides. Some of the zones you send us to are mostly greens (at least, now they are. Searing Gorge cons almost all green to me). So I am not earning much exp from the grind.

    If you plan to keep this guide current, I suggest you level a Draenei or something when BC comes out with a priest and see how you do. You may find the exp differs if what I said before is the case.

    But my main gripes still remain. Your guides are great, I just wish they could be done completely solo if so chosen. And by that I mean NOT having to grind just because you weren't able to instance. I see this may not be the "most efficient" which is what leveling guides are all about. But the reason I like your guides is because it's the only one I've found to make a very good guide that involves questing and not just flat out grinding.

    Anyway, I'll add more as I find it.

      Déc 20, 2006 @ 15:17

      I agree that there are someI agree that there are some tedious grinding sessions in the guide (I added a previous note showing how to quest thru 40 instead of grind), but overall he’s done a fantastic job of efficiently showing you what to do and what to skip.

      While the author could have made this a completely solo, non-grinding guide, that would have conflicted with his goal of being as efficient as possible. Doing time-consuming FedEx quests to out of the way places (and even finding enough quests to do) without any grinding or grouping, may just not be possible. At the very least it would require doing a lot more inefficient quests from level 30 on to have enough of them.

      I think he struck a good balance here. By level 55 or so I spent a lot more time in instances and followed the guide while LFG. I should hit 60 in the next day or so with about 7+ days played.

  • img
    Déc 22, 2006 @ 2:53

    AdditionsWell I was just going to add that I am now almost 58 and still impressed with the guides. There’s been a lot less griding and I seem to be able to keep up, even though I wasn’t able to do a lot of the elite quests until later.

    I do want to say that the Dragonkin quest in Burning Steppes is possible to solo as a Shaman, but the melee dragonkin will use up most of your mana (done as a 41 pt enhancement shaman). The casters and the drake are easy however.

    There was more I was going to say but I forgot it =) But great guides overall and I can’t wait to hit 60 =) Thanks for all your great work.

    Wonderful GuideI’ve leveled two 60’s on my own and I must say that this helps so much with my new priest.

    1) I don’t get how people couldn’t understand your guide. It’s not hard to understand. Just read it and do it.

    2) Sometimes the instance runs or random elite quests threw me a curveball, but I was leveling so fast I didn’t mind taking the time to stop and get a group or partner for them.

    3) I like the variety of questing. I was honored with many different factions and ever revered with a few by the time I was finished.

    Thanks so much Jame! Keep up the good work! (and you don’t need to write a 20-30 guide, not worth it)

    TypoIn the Level 57 part you made a really bad mistake 😀

    “Hearthstone to Gadgetzan, fly to Auberdine, take the boat to Menethil Harbor, fly to Ironforge.”

    should probably be “fly to Theramore”, since flying gadget-auberdine takes like 20 minutes 🙁

      FantasticJust finished the guide a couple days ago. Did the whole guide (30-60). Hit level 60 with 7.5 days played. I’m very pleased. =)

      The last part of the guide is the sweet spot. My time per level went DOWN at the end. Some levels were like 5-6 hours, then all of a sudden I fnished level 57 in like 3.5 hours. That pace kept through the end. AWESOME! =)

      Great job Jame. Your time and effort is very well appreciated.

      BTW…if anyone is interested, I didn’t do a single instance and never had to grind more than about 40k XP. In the worst scenario that’s like 2 hours (1 hour in better cases). That’s probably less time than actually doing the instance (although you lose all the XP bonuses that follow).

        Fantastic Guide!First of all, I am not what you’d call a power leveler. I wanted a guide so that I would know where to play when. I had been frustrated following other people’s advice on where to level. Then I discovered this guide and everything changed.

        This guide is well written and organized. It allows power levelers and casual gamers the advice needed to have a satisfying WOW experience. I’ve used the guide from lvl 30 onward and my only wish is that you put out a 60 to 70 guide!

        Thanks you for making my WoW experience awesome!

        Un GoroWhen doing Un Goro crater, I suggest you grab Bloodpetal Sprout’s as you travel around. I wouldn’t go out of the way for them, you get no experience for collecting them, but the reward gives you some free food and more importantly it gives you a Major Healing Potion, which can be expensive to buy. I managed to grab over 30 of these just while following the guide, not going out of the way and snagged 2 free Major Healing Potions out of it, plus some decent food (which can also get costly at times). You need to turn in 15 at a time, so I suggest just collect as many as you can until you’re done Un Goro then turf any extra (or mail them to a lower level alt to use). I also collected more Un’Goro Soil that was suggested, I am currently at 65, the reason being is this is GREAT if you’re an herbalist, later on you get a bag where you can use the soil to make free herbs. I mail the soil to my herbalist for when he gets this quest.

        Azshara & priestsJust a note for priests. You get a quest sometime around 50 to go to Azshara, I suggest you do it along with this guide. You can do most of it without deviating from the path laid out in this guide. You see a Ogtinc at 42,42, then when you go to Kim’jael, you kill Coursairs for your priest quest along the way, then return to Ogtinc just before going down to The Shattered Strand. The last part of the priest quest is in the Sunken Temple, if you leave most of the quests you had there until now, or you have any left, you can now do them all at once.

    Thanks a lot!I hereby thank you Jame, for this wonderfull guide. I was kinda desperate when I reached level 35, and never thought I would make it to 60. But I started using your guides, and from 55-58 I did 3 levels in only 3 days (real life days!) The way u describe the questlines, and the routes u planned to go, are as efficient as they can be. That saves a lot of time, and makes the grinding time as low as possible, which would be the one and only thing I can’t stand.

    Many thanks,
    From a lucky level 58 rogue,

    URGENT CHANGES[52] A Visit to Gregan : You can no longer buy a bait out of him, dont ask me why. The bloodpetals, you should mention you need one for turning it in, as i didnt know i just deleted those that were left in my inventory, horibble to go back and get some.

    [50] Morrograin : I got unlucky and didnt even get 10 (9), SO maybe ppl will need more.

    Donova Snowden is no longer in Moonglade but in Winterspring.

    Hope you can fix them, was a pain to find it by myself.

    As a fire mage, I fear thatAs a fire mage, I fear that burning steppes and searing gorge will be too much of a pain. My only alternatives are grinding somewhere else keeping fire dps, run instances, or respec to frost and stick to the guide.

    I’d appreciate any advice from mages who went through 50-60. Thanks !

    • img
      Jan 25, 2007 @ 14:30

      Yeah, I had the same issueYeah, I had the same issue as a fire mage. In actual fact, Searing Gorge and Burning Steppes weren’t really so bad at all – there’s only a select few mobs that have a high FR and are hard to take down.

      Mostly in SG it’s just easy humanoid dwarves with no FR on them. The only trouble is the minute amount of fire elementals you have to kill. They’re immune, so you’ll have to use frost spells – but you’re also levels higher than they are. It’ll take more time and more mana, but it isn’t really a concern; you only have to kill a few of them.

      In Burning Steppes I thought I’d have lots more trouble. I was wrong again however – the ogres and orcs that I expected to have high FR didn’t at all. The only real trouble is the dragons, and every other class bar a few has to get someone to help them with “The Dragonkin Menace” anyway. It’s easily soloable with another person, you just won’t be yor absolute best DPS is all. And the amount of XP you get after it truly is worth finding a partner for.

      Otherwise, awesome guide Jame. I got to 60 in about 9 days 1 hour – with a lot of AFKs in between. Like everyone else’s been saying, do a BC guide… Although I’ve noticed that the quests so far (I’m only in Hellfire Peninsula) are very, very linear and it isn’t really difficult to follow at all. That might change however, so do one just in case!

    evergreen pouchFirst of all, thank you SO MUCH for writing these guides! When I got a full time job a few months ago I just about gave up the thought of EVER reaching lv60, but I dinged 60 on my pally about a week ago (although according to your guide I should’ve been almost lv59 lol =p yay rested XP)

    One thing though, you said

    [quote]However once you got 20 Morrowgrain you can stop using the evergreen pouch. I personally sold the seeds and the un’goro soil I had left after obtained my 20 morrowgrain, and also destroyed the evergreen pouch, because I like having bag space :p[/quote]

    I followed your instructions because hey, I like bagspace too. However, I have just found out that destroying the evergreen pouch is not such a good idea.

    1. You can use it to create more morrowgrain which can get you rep with Darn by handing it in

    2. Morrowgrain is an ingredient in the tailoring item Cenarion Herb Bag. I’m really regretting destroying the pouch right now, because my friend can make that herb bag but for weeks now I haven’t seen any morrowgrain on the AH.

    3. If you don’t want the pouch for Darn rep or a herb bag, keep it just to make money since when I did see Morrowgrain on the AH on my server (EU Talnivarr) around the time I was doing the quest, it was selling for a LOT.

    So in other words, bank the Evergreen Pouch, DON’T destroy it!!

    Additional quest from Chillwind CampHey Jame,

    first of all, great guide. It really helped me a lot while levelling.
    On the other hand, since the 2.0 patch a Draenei is standing in Chillwind Camp and he’s got a quest where you need to recover “The Mark of the Lightbringer”. I suggest picking it up for when you have to kill the two Scarlet dudes, because the Mark is in a box on top of the same tower as where one of the Scarlet dudes is found. And since you’re going there anyways, you could easily grab it too.
    After you turn in this quest, you need to escort the same Draenei to Uther’s Tomb in Sorrow Hill. This is quite an easy quest and gives good XP as well.
    You might want to add this to your guide.

  • img
    Fév 1, 2007 @ 21:30

    A Few Helpful HintsOverall this guide is awesome, but i wanted to add a few things:
    1) You can get to Ratchet a lot faster from Theramore by running up the coast instead of wasting time following the roads. The only aggressive mobs that should cause any trouble at all are 35-37 murlocs, which can be easily avoided.

    2) My 50 Beast Master Hunter didn’t have any problems soloing the two Twilight killing quests in Searing Gorge.
    My only death was due to backing off a cliff trying to get in range for my bow 😛 The Twilight mobs can be pulled easily, but wanderers can be a nuissance so if ur not specced to handle multiple elites at the same time, you might want to seek help for these quests.

    3) A 51 Feral Druid claims to have killed overseer Maltorious and his two guards by himself. I’m not sure if this is true, but it might be worth a look into

    Once again, great guide, really enjoy using it 🙂

      Fév 5, 2007 @ 15:54

      About the last part ;-)HEy,

      I regged just to post this info :>

      Kill stuff inside plaguewood while looking for those termite mounds, but also try to find as much Cannibal Ghouls as possible. Anytime you kill one of these, a Spirit of Darrowshire will appear, right click it to free it. You need to free 15 Darrowshire Spirits. The Cannibal Ghouls are not so numerous though, so it will take a while, consider this as a mini grinding session, plus you are getting faction with the Argent Dawn and Scourgestones.

      ^^ above there’s a part about ghouls, them not being numerous is an understatement! but…i was farming some herbs, and there’s quite a large camp of ghouls and other vile things just southwest of ur WPL map number 18. So if u go southwest of number 18 on the map u’ll find a large camp of the bastards, finished the quest in a heartbeat there 😉

      Another updateOn the druid that claims that kill “In this room further in and to the right you’ll find Overseer Maltorius and 2 Dark Iron Sentries. These are 3 elites” — he now has four guards. Which, to say, makes it a bit tougher.

      On the other hand, we ran in, killed him, died. Rezzed, ran in, popped howl of terror, looted him and jumped. The four guards were just too much, though we watched a higher level group manage it, we couldn’t.

      This guide makes playing so much fun. Thanks! I’ve missed some instances, but ran one three times and am running about a level higher than the guide most of the time (using a warlock, affliction specc’d).

    Fév 8, 2007 @ 22:03

    Nice guide, but…OK basically I started the guide when I was about 3 levels higher than I needed to be back at about level 43. I’m currently a level 53 rogue doing the level 51 quests (Just finished Un’Goro circuit #1) and sometimes the fights are pretty damn hard or at least health-intensive.

    I’ll make allowances for the fact that nobody wants to do instances on their alts now that they have Outlands for their mains (I couldn’t find a single group for either Jintha’alor or Maraudon – I’m hoping that the same isn’t true for Sunken Temple)

    But yeah, my main gripe is that I’ve sometimes found it hard enough being a higher level than the guide says I should be (the harpies in Feralas, for instance, run away and bring their friends to unleash the pain). I can’t imagine the guide genuinely being the best way to get XP when it’s so hard with less health and dps (especially given that some of the mobs are 3-4 levels higher than the intended level to be questing at, meaning glancing blows, crushing blows against you etc.).

    Also you might want to add in the level 50 class quests for the Azshara section as these all start there and end in Sunken Temple

    Great guide, just a few little irks – I really appreciate the time you’ve clearly spent putting together this entirely free resource.

    Three cheers for Jame, buta few pointers as well 🙂

    Guide is really awsome. IGuide is really awsome. I really appreciate it. Got lvl 53 (now … ;)) shammy, following whole guide from lvl 30 now. And the most problem for me is finding group for… whatever. It’s nearly impossible to get group for instance, quest etc. I’m playing at low population server and it’s getting even worse than is said above. So – mostly I’m going grinding instead of doing isntance. BTW – for quite well equiped shammy most fights were easy. I soloed all 3 group q in Searing Gorge…

    Oh, and 1 info is out of date now – there is flight path to Un’goro, you don’t have to ride to Silithid ;).

    Level 54 – terrible mistake (mine) – I deleted drawing kit and couldn’t finish quest in IF…

    Very nice guide!First of all, Let me congrats you for your guide, I read it all and sounds like the best guide that I have the pleasure to read. 😉

    To start, I must said that I not follow your guide, for just one reason, I have my own metod to level up my chars, not the best neither the worst just mine. I try to make all the green quests that exist in the world, traveling to another place when I only remains the oranges/red ones. In this point your guide is so usefull to me, per exemple: To reach lvl 57-59 I follow your lvl 55-56 circuit. That healp me a lot to make almost 1 lvl per day, and I´m not a hardcore/non-real-life player. :jawdrop:

    Thank you Jame for the guide, a guide for noobies like me (I have only 3 60-ish, and my TBC do not arrive yet) and for most experiences players. For someone to discover the things and the quests, to others to help to organize the circuit of quests in our travel to 60 (or 70 to TBC´s guys) }:)

    XpI like your guide, speeds up my levelling, but you keep saying “this should make you ding etc” but you seem not to realise you do so much of the guide with rested.. i was 2 levels ahead at a point cause i got boosted in instanced and now im 4xp bars behind you :/

    great guide! I have a few suggestions tho:
    1st, I would like to see how long it took you to complete each chapter.
    2nd, like others have said; when the numbers on ur maps and the numbers on the steps coorospond it really helps
    thx 🙂
    3rd, the quests for brd give tons of xp and the instance itself gives alot of xp… on my main i lvl’d from 53-55 doing brd 2wice and finishing all of the quest
    and 4th, battleground quests give alot of xp for the lvl and good items just like sum1 else said (about av)

    other than that really good guide! 3days 12hours plaing time lvl 52

    Outdated QuestsHey Jame, i just wanted to say that you make the best leveling guides yet i have tryed diffrent ones and none of them compare to yours. I have gained a level 60 Priest and a 60druid useing your guide so i know it works. After leveling my druid to 60 just recently i was wondering if you were aware that 2 quests that i know of are out of date now. First is in STV where you get the Chilled Basilisk brain and take it to the guy in the Dwarven District in Stormwind you actually have to take it to him before the timer runs out or the quest item will dissappear. 2nd quest is Starfall i went to the exact location and even talked to Wynd nightchaser but he no longer offers the quest maybe this will help other people who use your guide. This is the best guide there is and i am glad you put the time in to it for people who suck at questing like myself if it wasnt for you i don’t think i would have as many 60s as i do Thank you a tone ^:^

    Jame your great man mad props!!Hey Jame, this is a great guide i just wanted to let you know that there are few quests that are out dated like in STV there is one where you have to get the Chilled basilisk brain well now you have to turn it in before the timer runs out or the item will disappear now. 2nd one is the Starfall quest that is suppose to be gotten in Wintersprings that quest no longer exists i talk to every guy in that little town Starfall village. I hope that helps other people who are stuck on those quests. I also wanted to say your guide is the best one out there i have seen others and they don’t even compare to your guide making skills if it were not for you i don’t think i would be up to 3 60s on my account and 1 70 now 🙂 Great guide man your the best.

    Revisions post expansionThis is an amazing guide! Seriously, I’ve gone through the whole thing from 30 and it’s made the WoW experience so much more enjoyable… Thanks!!

    I was thinking, now that I’ve hit level 58, shouldn’t I be potentially heading to Outland soon?

    So a simple thought: Perhaps Chapter III could be revised so that it accounts for TBC users, because instead of finishing those quests in Plaguelands, etc… one could skip it and start questing in Outland.

    What do you think?

        I wanted to point one thing out. Its kinda like repentence or something for not helping out an Allie in the Plaguelands (troll priest, not like I could talk to the guy anyways). So, you don’t have to actually go IN the houses to get the doll parts, you can stand outside the building and click on the gear when it comes up. The ghosts will still spawn but they can’t go through walls to get you so no worries.

        I don’t think this has changed but then I havent been there in a long while…

          GuideNice guide. It’s helpful for organizing my quests.

          A hint tho for part two. All 3 chicken escort quests are easily soloable by running a bit ahead of the chicken, aggroing the spawns, and running in a big circle around and then behind the chicken until they drop combat. As long as the chicken isn’t aggroed, he keeps running and you can leave the pops to wander. The only tricky one is in tanaris, where the second set basically pops right on the chicken. Still doable tho.

    Excelent…This guide is by far the best free guide out there. i give major props to you!

    i am level 53 and found this guide.. it seems that all the places you name i have already hit! thus making my point that this guide works really well if you follow it from the first level. if you jump into it it gets confusing

    First i have to say thatFirst i have to say that your guide helped me to reach 60 in a enormous speed ! I found it at lvl 47, hard at the beginning to get into the guide but now im 70 and i got from 47 to 58 in a month IRL time!

    Just wondred what character you used when you made this guide 😕

    Love your guides!Hello Jame,

    I was looking through this site for a complete leveling guide 1-60 and now I’ve got it! I was checking through your guide, just a few reads. Now I can’t wait to start playing again! I’m going to level a night elf druid and maybe finally I’ll get a character to 60, using Taralom’s Night Elf leveling guide 1-12, Caelestis’s Alliance Leveling Guide 12-20 and finally filling the gap between your guides, the Alliance 20-30 leveling guide by Punjabi! *Huggles* Thanks in advance! :jawdrop:

    Then I checked and realized I had forgotten to finish off Linkden in Winterspring.

    So, luckily I’ve got the flight path, I can go back and do that later and then to Gregan.

    What the flux? Rogue styleA way for rogues to finish the What the flux? quest is sap the overseer, come out of stealth put evasion on hit one of the guys until crippling poison sets in, blind the second guard, gouge the other, sprint to the plans grab them, jump down and vanish.. complicated but well worth it.. oh and after u sap the overseer make sure u run a little bit away from the plans so when the guard that u gouged ( the one with crippling poison on him) breaks out, he cant run over to you because he’s too far away and slowed down. 😀

    requires quick fingers.. great guide jame, been following it word for word lvl 50 in 5 days ftw

    Do the Mark of the Lightbringer …If you are going to kill Cavalier Durgen, you should consider getting the Draenia quest to get the light bringer’s mark.

    You clear your way to the top. talks about how various classes did it. Good time to change your pet to a felhunter if you are a warlock. In addition, you can run up, howl of terror, loot the chest, jump out the side of the tower.

    I was with another ‘lock, got careless, died, used my soulstone, grabbed the mark and jumped. Then I resummoned my minon, ate and drank and went back to turn in the quests, following the guide, with this one just added on top of it.

    I must say that this guide has made play so much fun. I’m actually at level 59 with a third left to go to 60 and I’m about to fly back to Chillwind from Stormwind just to enjoy more of the game content. Too bad it is almost impossible to get groups for instances any more.

    I plan to finish the stored quests in my inventory, go visit Umi, hit Slithis and then return to Outland.

    Wish you had an Outland guide, but I can appreciate how it just isn’t worth it.

    Thanks so much for doing this one.

      Little fixHey, i’ve leveled with your horde and alliance guide it makes it alot faster, it’s probably not the most efficient way now in 2.3 but 3 days 22 hours and lvl 56.5 is ok for me, plus easy with guide so I just do it.

      I would just like to point out a little mistake, where it says something like “turn in “starfall[56]”, get the follow up” I found I had no quest named starfall, but actually you mean turn in “To Winterspring!” and get the follow up starfall.

      Anyways, thanks for all the guides 😀 Can’t wait to try 60-70 in überspeed

        Jan 5, 2008 @ 14:34

        No actually it can be eitherNo actually it can be either [53] Starfall or [53] To Winterspring!

        Both quests are the same and lead to the same follow up, they are just given by a different npc. And in the guide I say to get [53] Starfall previously when in Rut’theran village outside Darnassus.

        In any case, it leads to the same result 🙂

    Missing your guide :)I picked up part of Brian Kopp’s guide. Ok, it has the best rating of a commercial guide.

    It really does not compare.

    Have you given more thought to doing an Outlands Guide?

    If I sent you $20.00 would it matter?

    In some ways, Burning Crusade has made a wasteland of things. is a bit more updated than Thottbot (one of the weaknesses of Kopp’s guide is all the links are to Thottbot), but it has cracks that aren’t being fixed. No one is seriously updating.

    Lots of things got started, get 2-3 levels into the Outlands and then peter out.

    Anyway, your guide really made the game enjoyable for me, there is so much I found, relished, and did not miss because of your guide.

    Thank you. Thank you very much.


    BTW, for guides that are partially done:

    and (the sample from Brian Kopp — good, just not as good as Jame’s here).

    LoveI love your guide because I used it on my rogue and Paladin. Both getting to 60 in under a month.. Well actuall I had my paladin for a while at around 20 but when I got to work on it I zoomed up to 60 and was able to beat one of my guildmates when he said he would beat me doing straight instances. I do get stuck sometimes for some reason. I end up a level below what you state. And sometimes when I grind out on instances and end up two levels ahead I fall behind.

    Most of my problems come with me being in a pvp server. But I hope you come out with a 60-70 guide soon. I have stopped playing, but when the day comes when I return. My paladin is a 63 and rogue at 60 so I want to be able to hit 70 quick.

    i like ur guides, i donti like ur guides, i dont always do the instances, since i trust my grinding skillz more, but i tried your horde guide and lvld in 7days to 60 and had a total of 11days 12hrs from 1-70, worked out reallly well imo.
    gonna give ur alliance guide a run through, seems pretty much the same as the horde one. looking forward to it, gg 🙂

    New Flight PathsHey James your guide is just great. I’m in the midst of it and the leveling process is going so quickly (I’m now at lvl 55). I just wanted to point out that maybe you should fix up certain parts of the guide concerning Emerald Sanctuary, Felwood and Forest Song, Ashenvale since they now have flight paths which cost a lot but are still convenient in a vast area like Felwood/Ashenvale. Thanks a bunch for your help.

      Awesome GuideJame, this is a fantastic guide! If it wasn’t for you and this guide, I don’t know if I would still be playing. With this guide, I was able to easily breeze through the content so far. I’m only about to finish the second chapter, and I love it. All my alts will use it as well. Thank you for all of your work and dedication.

      A couple of things for people new to the guides:

      1. If you are unsure about your soloing abilities, you can fairly easily stay a level or two ahead of the guide to make quest completion easier. I noticed that with my warrior this helped a lot.

      2. Most of the guides seem to have been completed without the help of rested experience. For more casual gamers like me, rested experience will help you avoid grinding sessions and may help with my first point above.

      Again, Jame, I can’t say enough how great this guide has been. Thank you very much!

    Thank You!Jame,
    I just want to add my thanks to the many who have posted here. I didn’t exactly follow your guide 100% but I used it on every level from the late 30’s. It is amazing and if I ever decide to level another toon, this will be the first place I come. Your guide led me to a number of quests/chains that I’d never done in my three previous 60+ toons. Thanks again.

    GoodThis is a good guide if you CAN follow it directly. If you don’t follow it from the start then there will be periods where you will be way ahead of or way behind the guide level wise. It is mostly good for scheduling town visits and hearthstone locations, which honestly is where most of the extra time comes from. The guide is also good if your already half way through a level and don’t know where to go (you can pick up a circuit of the guide to add to your leveling calender).

    This is to be expected because for the most part you CAN’T directly follow the guide anymore. Pre-Outlands is a desolate wasteland on most servers and this guide refers alot to “pick up a partner for this or that”. Good luck with that. Getting ahead of the guide is easy if you are rested, have access to do quests/instances skipped in the guide, or because of BC updates like better flight paths or higher exp bonuses making things faster.

    Quest in Azshara Arcane Runeshi i follow your guide first time and I found a better way to get to the island.
    After you got all the ruines for the quest you follow the beach to 55.75 then go up the land. Then ride with your mount to 62.84 there is a bridge to go over this canion. Then just walk very near the cliffs through the middle to avoid battles. you easily can jump down at 74.87 and do not die… i think its a faster way then swimming all through the water

    I hope my english is not too bad.. cause I am German 😉

    this is the second time round i used ur guide up to 58,
    and i’d like to say thanks alot for being one of few that actually put things out to help people. Others would charge for goldust like this!

    Anyway, althought the grinding is a bit constant, i enjoy every minute of it and is definetley the only way i could level as fast as this 🙂 Also the last 3 or 4 levels of questing was greatly done, even if you fell a few levels behind everything was dooable.

    Thanks alot 😀 8)

    Need to remove some quests with 2.3 changesGoing over the guide for my third time now. it’s pure awesome and can’t thank you enough. Sadly I think you’re pretty much gonna have to re-write the whole thing with the changes they have made to XP. My hunter was 51 when patch 2.3 hit and was following the guide word for word. I now find myself skipping entire zones (Azshara for example) as my char was just racing ahead in level the whole time. Think rested XP then x 2 :o$

    I did 51-52 in 1 hour 10 mins by following your guide and I wasn’t rested!!!

    Nov 18, 2007 @ 19:28

    2.3 patch lolzI’m following this guide again for my warlock (just dinged 50), and it’s just as wonderful as it was with my mage. However, I’m wondering if you’ll be editing it for the 2.3 patch, since it increased quest xp gains and lowered xp to level? I know I’ve already skipped over a handful of quests that were just a pain to try to do, and I hit 50 at the time I finished the level 47 section.

    I Commend YouVery well put together, I find it hard to believe one man’s efforts could produce a guide of this quality. I helped me level steadily to 55, upon which time Blizzard made it amazingly simple to level from 20-60 in the patch, so the guide became irrelevent really. But up to that point, it was perfect.

    Thank you for all your work!

      Just one word: AmazingJame,

      i just wanted to let you know that your guides are a absolut masterpiece. I have looked at the other guys for which you have to pay. Yours is so much simpler and better.

      Great work and thank you so much providing it for free. Since 2.3 leveling is indeed rediculiously simple between 20-60 but hey, with this guide it goes even faster. Even if you are 2-3 levels ahead you still get amazing EP from the quests and one can skip a whole section if the area is too crowded or not liked.

      In general.. keep up the good work… is a site every wow player should know about

    i only solo!bloody good guide, mate. i just found it and i can’t wait to put it to use.

    now that said, i noticed that i’ve got to get out and do some instance to prepare for the program as set out in the third guide.

    now since i NEVER group or join guilds or anything else that necessitates the inherent and abiding nuisance of dealing with real humans, i’ve never set foot in an instance (or a group or guild, for that matter).

    i somehow acquired the impression that one MUST do instances with a group. am i misguided? if not, how much am i missing out if i skip everything that requires having to team up with someone?

    if i AM missing out, that’s all right. i do know i’m missing out on certain types of gear, etc, but it’s a price i’m more than willing to pay in order not to have to interact with anyone. sounds a bit harsh perhaps, but it’s a burden i’ll cheerfully shoulder, and i’m afraid it’s not negotiable.

    so… all that said, how useful might i still expect to find this guide?

      None of the instances in theNone of the instances in the guide are mandatory. You can follow it without ever having to group, especially since patch 2.3

    Great Guide!Also, I’m sure you know there’s no elites anymore outside of instances for the most part (I think the game was more fun with elite quests…) Also, some quests have had there levels changed I think. The Margol the Rager quest in the searing gorge is a much lower level quest and no longer elite. I got 1,000 xp for each part in it, didn’t even bother with the last part. I was 1 level ahead however since I did all of the AV quests, which gave me the better part of a level, a good 6 quests at 9.5k xp each is well worth the time. Not to mention the iced barbed spear is easily the best weapon up till outland gear if your a warrior, shammy, pally. But I’ve followed the guide on and off, depending on the zones, and so far I love it. Thanks!

    Eastern Crystal PylonThe coordinates for the Eastern Crystal Pylon (as seen in directions):

    Go southeast until you find the Eastern Crystal Pylon (76,48). Click it and examine it.

    Should be updated to the actual position:

    Go southeast until you find the Eastern Crystal Pylon (77,50). Click it and examine it.

    Incredible guideThis is the BEST leveling tool I have ever seen. I have 2 70’s(Shaman, Hunter) and a 60(Mage) and this incredible work has no equal.

    I originally found this guide when TBC came out and I decided to powerlevel a Dranei Shaman. My Hunter(60 at the time) was my main but I decided to switch to the Shaman. Unfortunately this put me at a distinct disadvantage as my guildmates were all 60 and I had to start over at level 1. I knew despite the experience I had I needed something to help me level faster.

    When I found this guide I never looked back. Even after skipping a lot of the instances,(guildmates all busy leveling in Outlands + PUG’s take to long to find and are usually lower quality) I made it to 70 very quickly and even before some of my guildmates who started at 60!

    I have since created a Druid and am in the process of leveling her. I figured with 2.3 out I needed no help but when I got to the early 40’s I was questioning where to go and ended up coming right back here to check. Sure enough I had forgotten to pick up some quests I needed before going to a few zones. So even with the increasing rate at which you can level in 2.3 I would strongly suggest continuing using this guide. I know I plan on reading this all the way to 60…again.

    The only problem with this guide is that it didn’t come with WoW when I bought it 🙂

I’m not a coder so I have no idea if that sort of thing is simple or difficult but being able to access your guide IN GAME with the ability to set waypoints by clicking on coordinates…holy cow!

      No, you don’t have to. ItNo, you don’t have to. It was nice back then but now it is kinda irrelevant. If you find the bracers cheap on the AH then by all means do it anyway, for the extra XP, but it’s really not needed anymore, will probably be removed when Snowflake revamps the guide, since I guess these bracers are becoming hard to find nowadays.

    WickedI have been doing this guide since level 42, currently level 55 druid and going strong. I’m about a level ahead (about to start level 54 in guide) and I skipped most of the instances, only doing 3 or 4 quest in ZF. But, bonus rest XP and the fact they give more XP for some quests and require less to level up still leaves me ahead with very little grinding.

    Since mid-late 40s I have been getting 30k exp almost all the time sometimes up to 40k or more.

    Two thumbs up, look forward to doing the entire guide to 70.

Anyway, awesome guide, cant wait to do the 60-70 guide 😀

    Small mistakeOnly mistake (or change I’m not sure) so far, at the end of chapter 58:

    “Go north and slightly to the east to Northpass Tower (55,24). Turn in [56] Troubled Spirits of Kel’Theril at Aurora Skycaller inside the tower, don’t get the follow up.”

    She is actually located nearby at Quel’Lithien Lodge (53, 21).

    Just CuriousHey Jame, this is an amazing guide, I have been following it since about level 45 and just hit level 57 today. Ok so i ran Blackrock Depths with some friends a few times and got so far ahead of the guide that often the monsters I am fighting are grey to me. I just started the Felwood Part but like I said I am now level 57. I was wondering If it is fairly easy to just skip ahead a few levels, I was thinking maybe to the first Felwood –> Everlook part since it is a whole new place to start questing in. Or do you recommend not to because I would not have access to all quests you do.

    Just wondering…

    • img
      Déc 28, 2007 @ 12:18

      If the mobs you have to killIf the mobs you have to kill are grey, then yes, skip ahead. You might lack a few quests in the future parts of the guide if there are long chains, but it’s not a big deal anyway if you’re so far ahead in levels.

    isnt it quicker to goisnt it quicker to go straight to outlands at lvl 58? im currently a lvl 55 night elf rouge

    • img
      Déc 28, 2007 @ 14:27

      No, it isn’t quicker. I’veNo, it isn’t quicker. I’ve explained many times why. However, what you can do at level 58 is go to Outlands and do the first few quests to get some of the nice quest rewards, and then go back to where you left the guide (probably somewhere near the plaguelands).

      The quest hubs of the plaguelands are great, why not do them while you are still in the level range? If you rush to outlands at level 58, when hit 70 you’ll have even less quests left in the Outlands.

      If you follow my whole guide, you’ll probably hit level 70 with Netherstorm and SMV (and maybe even most of Blade’s Edge Mountains) untouched. If you accomplish that, it means that you’ll pretty much finance your epic flying mount by doing all those quests at level 70.

      I remind everyone that when you do a quest at level 70, all the experience normally given by the quest is converted in extra gold.

    Not sure if this has already been brought upSince the recent patch, xp required per level was reduced, and quest xp was increased. Can you point out good parts to skip, because I keep getting ahead and then skipping a section so I’m not fighting greys.

    Just to let you know withJust to let you know with the experience changes when I finally got to the point to hit up ST it was no longer in my list because I was too high a level. Which wasn’t cool because that was the finish of one of my Priest quests but what can ya do I’d rather level anyways; and if I really cared I’m sure I could have put a group of friends together to help me.

    Just One GripeFirst off, fantastic guides! I can’t thank you enough for making leveling fun again. After getting 2 characters to 60 (and then 70) the old fashioned, do-the-top-quest-in-the-list method, I furiously tried to get another alt up, but always got burnt out anywhere from 35-50. Since finding your guide I have gotten 2 chars to Outland and I’m working on a third. I just have one gripe:

    I never, EVER, have enough morrowgrain. For the third time now, I have left Un’Goro (the first time) with over 50 soils, but by the time your guide returns to Feathermoon to turn in 10 morrowgrain, I only have 5 or 6, and I’m fresh out of soils. That’s INCLUDING a character that I had 300 herbalism on, so I’m pretty sure herbalism doesn’t matter at all. At this point I usually frustratingly take a trip to an AH to buy as many soils as I can get my hands on, and just continue the guide until I get 10 morrowgrain and can backtrack to Feathermoon. And of course by that time I’m supposed to have turned in 10 more at Darnassus… So I might suggest a note at the beginning of this section to check the AH for soils or morrowgrain and pick them up whenever they are cheap enough.

    Yogurth-RavencrestHey Jamie :).
    Thanks, first of all, for the guides. I already got 3 level 70 char, and i’m levelling up a paladin full protection (nerf it 😀 !!). After patch 2.3 a lot of mobs changed from elites to normal. I know that you probably rewamp your guides, but i’ve got a question.
    Since a year find a group for the istances (not boost, just group up to see something more with your class etc etc) is pretty hard. On my server is impossible to find a group for maraudon or brd (just because a lot of people go instead into hellfire peninsula to get more equip fast): i’ve looked that the place of tyr’s hand and hearthglen now is really simple and nice for farming (’cause there aren’t a lot of people high level now into azeroth and ’cause, maybe, the mobs now give only 3-4 silver).
    Ok, there are a few of elites, but i suppose that the two places are really good for grinding from level 55 till level 59. What do you think about ?

    =) Happy new year to you !

      Hello and thank you.

      Well,Hello and thank you.

      Well, grinding won’t be necessary and neither will be instancing from 30 to 60. After the revamp, you’ll get to level 60 easily following the guide, without any grinding or any instancing needed.

    Most excellent work. I amMost excellent work. I am not what most people would call a ‘serious’ gamer, I am not into working through levels all that fast, but I love the guide to use when I do want to do some leveling, to know where my time is best spent.

    I am currently in the Slag Pit and thought it would be good to note that Overseer Maltorius is a non-elite Level 50 and only had one Level 48 guard, also non-elite. So it shouldn’t be too hard to take these two and get to the needed Secret Plans anymore.

    Are you updating the guides to reflect game changes at this point?

    Complete all the quests before going to outlandsA key note to all who are going to continue to lvl 70, complete all the quests in the guide 50-60 before going to the Outlands for several reasons:

    (1) the XP bonus is still double for all lvl 60 quests and below
    (2) the more quests you have in the outlands to do at lvl 70 = more gold for your epic flying mount

    I have followed your guide and hit lvl 60 before even doing the quests in BS, EPL, WPL and Sith due to the XP bonus of the new patch (I ran a few instances multi-times for good equipment also). These quests are still generating good XP – I plan to hit the outlands at lvl 62.

    amazedHey, i LOVE your guide…i made fun of WoW a lot being a UO player and then i decided to try it but leveling was annoying…then your guide made it easy.

    -i just wanted to let you know that somethings have changed…i was in searing gorge

    -Fireguards and such are not elite any longer and was easily soloable
    -watchtower guards are not elite
    -that big effing rhino is not elite he was a a grey level 45 😛
    -and the quest for him gave me 400xp and when i went back to pibsley he gave me another 500xp…you might wanna scratch that one from the guide. 🙂
    (level 60 in my first month of playing, hoolllllaaa)

    One thing- Overseer Maltorius in the Slag Pit is no longer elite and only has 1 non elite guard. It’s easily soloable now. 😀

    Hey, just giving you seriousHey, just giving you serious props for this guide, its fantastic and i am currently level 59 using this guide.

    however i have a question for you, if im level 59 at the part that says we should be 55 (winterspring) and i hit 60 soon, will it be a bad thing if i continue with the guide even if it brings me to like 62,63? i wouldnt want to get less xp in outlands.. and id like to go equip searching, what do you reccomend? going to outlands at 60? or just staying with the guide and getting like 62,63?

    sorry for the long comment, again amazing work.

      It’s actually great to beIt’s actually great to be ahead of the guide.
      Going to Outlands at level 61 is great too. It means you’ll hit 70 earlier and still have many quests left to do —> you’ll get loads of gold for your epic flying mount.

      However, you can go to Outlands and do the first few quests for the gear upgrades at level 58-60, and then go back to where you left my 51-60 guide.

    Hey DudeI wanna start by saying Great Guide! I was fairly new to WoW and this guide showed me a lot of places and didn’t make it hard to level up! One suggestion I have (especially for melees) is that there’s teh Ice Barbed Spear from the Alterac Valley quest. So at level 52 I really needed a new two handed weapon and heard about it. So I diverged off the guide and visited Alterac Valley. I picked up all the quests that tell you to help cap a certain type of point and boy was I surprised! Each quest gave me almost 10k xp! And to top it off I got some marks, a ton of honor and a really nice weapon! I know that you said that this guide ignores PvP but I think that the rewards for doing Alterac Valley far outweigh any reason for not doing it! Again, great guide dude, I can’t wait for the revamped version (BTW, since 2.3 changed stuff, I’ve gotten 3 levels ahead w/o doing any grinding, although I did ZF 2-3 times for new equips 8) )

    Great guideEven though it’s my first character and I’m lvling after the major xp patch, I can still easily follow your guide, when I’m lvled I miss all the rest of that part go on to next lvl on guide, makes me feel like im going fast =-D. It does get a bit trickey when you go back to quests done before, (the ones I missed out :D) but hey still amazing.

    Thanks for putting so much effort into it just for us guys :D:D

    point 14 Level 57
    Ride back to redridge
    There is a fligfhtpath there, might shave another 10 minutes traveling of the questing.
    Why not take the flightpath, and ride instead ?

    even tough i stepped in at 57, had already done quite some q’s in plaguelands, i just continued following your guide, and wow, amazing, i am already 60 and a half, while just having finished the placing the termite barrel quest, in about the same time as i would have expected to go to 58 ( thats 2 levels of free time )
    Thanks a whole lot. Cant wait for the updated guide to come out and get a new toon going.
    I will shurely follow the guide 60-70 and am confident that will be a whole lot of fun and extra speed.
    Thanks a bundle.

    Epic mountHey, first i’d like to thank you for this great guide. It really helped me a lot.

    But i have a small question I am leveling my mage now but he only has 278 gold at his lvl (58). I am one lvl ahead of the guide so i will only be going to Outlands at lvl 61, can you please tell me if its normal that I only have that low gold and do you think I will make enough money even when i don’t go to outlands at lvl 60?


    • img
      Fév 16, 2008 @ 16:53

      I generally have more goldI generally have more gold than that at level 58. But it’s nothing to worry about, you’ll get a ton more gold if you finish my guide and you might have 500-600g before you start with Outland. Just don’t buy anything from the auction house, you can easily finish all quests with green gear. And then in Outland you’ll gear up quickly. So save your gold, and sell your green drops at the auction house, same thing goes for runecloth, it sells very nicely.

      • img
        Juin 10, 2008 @ 17:25

        One thing though, once youOne thing though, once you hit lvl 57 start scanning the AH for greens you can use. If you compare stats you can see the difference between oldworld lvl 57-60 greens and outland ones. From lvl 57-62 you should be visiting the AH looking for upgrades, they are so much better than the gear you’ll have from questing in Azeroth that it’s worth paying 3-5g each. You’ll be amazed at how much easier things will be. Also offer your guild enchanters trades for greens, if they come across something you can use trade them with a green you can’t; it doesn’t matter the item type for DEing, just it’s level (61-65, 66-70 are the same).

      Check the areas covered byCheck the areas covered by the guide in the previous levels (start with the level 52 or 53 section). See if there are any areas there where you haven’t been or haven’t done many quests, and start there. If you miss a few pre-requisites it’s no big deal.

    Quest Arcane RunesHi James. Really great guide. I’m leveling my second char paladin through it. My first warlock is on your 60-65 guide, which works great as well.

    Just wanted to point out that in Level 53 p.2 for quest Arcane Runes those pillars are not guarded by any ghosts, just nagas. I had to kill one naga per pillar to get access to it.

    Any advice on where to start now because alot of it is quest chains and gettin really confused… Should i continue or start at level 47?

    Any help would be greatly thanked.

      Green is fine. KeepGreen is fine. Keep following the guide. Only skip quests if they are grey or make you kill grey mobs.

      And don’t worry too much about missing a few quest chains, if you are so far ahead in levels you won’t be needing them in anyway

    Alright, I can say I’veAlright, I can say I’ve followed your guides and they are awesome, but usually by the time I’ve started using your guides for a certain character, it’s right smack in the middle of the guide. The other times I’ve found a good hole to fit into and all was well, but this time I’ve just hit 54 and I’m kind of at an awkward position. I’ve looked back in the guide and have completed some of the quests given and I’ve looked a little forward and have a few of the easier ones completed. What would you suggest?

    BRD or onward?So, I’ve just about completed this guide (awesome, btw) and am ready to go to BRD… and guess what? Nobody seems interested in grouping with me for it. They’re all running off to the outlands for better loot and exp. So, my question is if I should just follow them or if I should badger my guild into doing a few runs of BRD. I’d kinda like to do it for the experience, but… is it worth the hassle?

    Great!I must say, that this is the most effective of your guides pre-TBC. My friend was playing that same time like me until 50 and we always had that same lvl, but from 50 it has really changed. When I was 60 he was still 54. I found your guides a great thing, but from 60 I’ve levelled myself, without guides and now I’m 68. I must say that with this guides I really learned to do quests very effective and choose only the best. Thank you!

    Starting from a higher level Hello,

    I’m having some trouble leveling my Warrior which is why I thought that going back to your guides would help but the problem is that my Warrior is currently two bars away from level 53 and has done a lot of quests which I see you mention in the guide. I’ve been doing mainly the quests at Un’Goro.

    So what am I supposed to do? Which part of the guide to I start at?

    Also I’d like to mention that I started from the beginning of Chapter I when I was at level 33 and it didn’t go too well since some quests were becoming green and I wasn’t leveling as fast as I would by just doing the quests by myself with no guide.

    Thanks in advance.

        ConfusedI’m leveling well, at the moment level 54.

        I’m confused at the 2nd and 3rd steps of level 53 though.

        “South of it, at (39,50) you’ll find a Pillar named Rune of Jin’yael, clear the 2 ghosts guarding it and any naga close to it. Right click the pillar, it will use your drawing kit and you’ll receive the Rubbing: Rune of Jin’yael.”

        Is it the one that has a purple crystal on top and stands out from the others? It’s because I can’t seem to find any difference on the cursor when I point at it. I posted it as a reply to my first comment since it could be the objective of a quest that I didn’t take at the beginning of the guide.

    Searing Gorge ChangesI am really enjoying the guides. There are so many places and quests I have never seen before. Great work!

    I just wanted to pass along some apparent changes in Searing Gorge. I don’t know which patch changed them, but here they are:

    Level 50, step 7: Overseer Maltorius and 2 Dark Iron Sentries are no longer elites, and there is now only 1 Sentry guarding Maltorius. I was able to solo this quest without any issues.

    Level 51, step 9: The Dark Iron Sentries inside each tower are no longer elites.

    Thanks again for the hard work!

    Margol the RagerOptional: If you feel like you are capable of soloing a level 48 Elite (green for you at lvl 51), or if you are not solo, from the grimsite camp go south and find a narrow path going up the mountain at (65,80), you will find a named rhino named Margol the Rager. I soloed him with ease at lvl 51 as mage, warrior and rogue, I just used long cooldown abilities and didn’t even need to use potions. He wanders from this path in the mountain to his cave is at (72,77).

    Looks like Margol changed. Just killed him and he’s only a level 43 non-elite. Super easy.

    great guideGreat guide – followed it from 30-60, hit 60 at 3 days 21 hours played as a feral druid. Most of the suggestions I had come up with had already been left as comments, but there’s one thing I’d like to mention- when going to plaguewood for termites, getting the quest “Restless Souls,” which requires you to find Egan, is an easy 9550 xp – just go a little further west to Terrordale and turn in. There are then 2 quests at his location for stratholme for those interested.

    Also, if alliance have towers, you can use the spectral griffon master to fly from plaguewood tower to northpass tower, fast access to Zul’Mashar.

    This is a great guide for meThis is a great guide for me so far. I’m level 58 and I’m going to make 60 in a played time of 5 days which I’ve got to playing casually and doing professions and warlock stuff along the way, so it’s not bad. Although, I do have a question.

    I’m level 58 and I’m about 2 levels above the guide. By the time you recommend that I do BRD, I’m going to be way above it. And by the time I do the stuff at the end of your guide, I will be level 60 and be wasting my time because Outland EXP is WAY better. Anyways, I was wondering if in your level 60-65 guide, are there any quests that are carried on from 50-60? Or is it simply, “Finished Azeroth, all quests done, now go to Outland”.

    Basically, can you tell me if there are any quests I will still have at the end of the 50-60 guide and if I wan’t to go to Outland, can I just drop them if there are any. Will they be important for Outland? I highly doubt it as it’s a compeltely new area. Please reply, and once again, nice guide and good job making them all.

    • img
      Mai 29, 2008 @ 16:23

      None of the quests fromNone of the quests from Azeroth continue in Outland, so don’t worry about that. This chapter is outdated, I’m currently revamping it, so it’s normal that you’re way ahead of the guide in levels.

      I recommend doing the circuits which involve the plaguelands, felwood and winterspring before going to Outland though, because the XP is actually great there and it’s always better to go to Outland with a few XP bubbles above level 60. The more quests you do before going to Outland, the earlier you will ding 70 and then you’ll have a lot of Outland quests left to do at level 70, which translate into loads of gold for your epic flying mount financing.

      Another alternative is to do the first few quests in Hellfire peninsula (to get those nice quest rewards), and then go back to do the felwood/plaguelands/winterspring circuits.

        hmm i’ve never actually donehmm i’ve never actually done any of the plaguelands but eve though you’ve said that, i still reckon starting in outland will be faster. Thanks for the information though, cleared up my query 😉 Will start 60-65 very soon.

    At first. Thanks a millionAt first. Thanks a million for your great guides. Been using them for over 5 characters now and appreciate your hard work. I’ll try and leave a comment once in a while to *finetune* them a bit more in case I encounter some inconsistencies.

    – At Level 51, point 5 you mention two quests [50] The Flame’s Casing (Elite) and [50] Prayer to Elune (Elite), to be elite quests and that you should team up with atleast one other person to be able to finish them. Both quests are non-elite now and pretty easy to do solo.

    – Same goes for level 51, point 8. The quest [52] Set Them Ablaze! (Elite) isn’t elite anymore. So the elite Dark Iron Sentry mentioned in point 9 isn’t on top of any tower anymore.

    – Underneath level 51, point 10 you mention an optional circuit to kill Margol the Rager, a level 48 elite. He aint elite anymore and for some reason he’s level 43 now. The quest is grey in your questlog when doing it at this level.

    Can’t get March of the SilithidFor some reason I am unable to pick up March of the Silithid from Gracina Spiritmight [i]after[/i] turning in Rise of the Silithid. I did everything in your guide exactly except I forgot to complete Prayer to Elune in Searing Gorge which I’m going to do now, but I don’t think that has to do with it since it’s turned in at a different NPC. I don’t think I forgot anything else. Bug maybe?

    but still has 2 guards, though when i made it up he only had one. waited for respawn but he only had 1 when i passed by later. not 100% on the guards though

    Ahead 😕 I’ve been using your guide since level 30, and I am somehow always half a level to a level ahead of the guide. I just began this chapter, and I am half a level ahead, again. At the very beginning it says to do Maraudon. Should I just skip it so I’m not so far ahead of the guide anymore?

        Thank you!All right! My bro is doing the horde version of the guide and I am doing the alliance, an we both end up being ahead, and so we both try to find things we can skip.

    Revision SuggestionFor the Winterspring circuit i would suggest putting in the High Chief Winterfall quest along with the book and the followup to the book. I got about 16k exp from the 2 quests since it is no longer an elite quest it is easily soloable and the followup to the book gives some nice trinkets to boot.

    Should I go to Outland?Hi James. First of all I just need to thank you for the AMAZING guides you’ve done. I’ve followed them from lvl 30. Now I am lvl 58 and wounders if I should go to outland and ding 60 and then continue with your lvl 60-65 guide or do you use the quests that I would problaby do in your 60-65 guide? Because all my friends tells me to go Outland and I would ding really fast, so I need your advice.


    • img
      Juin 30, 2008 @ 18:46

      All your friends are wrongAll your friends are wrong sadly 😛

      Yes, you can go to Outland, do the first few quests so that you get some nice upgrades (you get a new weapon, a chest and some legs with the first 3 quests or so). I actually recommend it.

      But after that, I strongly advice going back to the old world and finishing the quest circuits of the plaguelands and winterspring. The exp there is almost as good as in Outland. Moreover, it will be much easier for you to go to Outland at 60+. Not to mention, if you go to Outland at 58, you won’t be able to access all quests (there are level 61+ requirements for some Hellfire quests already).

      Sadly, the majority of the wow population thinks it’s extremely smart to go to Outland as soon as possible. They’re mistaken, they will level slower than someone who follows my advice, and it will also be more difficult.

    i dont know what to doHey I’ve been following your guide since chapter once, but as most people I get a little bored while following guides. So every now and then I’d get boosted in instances or run them with guidies. The result of this is that I am now lvl 60 on the lvl 57 part of the guide. I don’t know if I should finish the quests in my log and start with your lvl 60 to 65 part or not.

      I personally like to finish as much as possible from the old world and go to Outland already close to 61. That way most quests will be a little easier and I will stay ahead of guide in levels even if I can’t find anyone for instances.

    Searing GorgeHi Jame! I used this guide to level my Hunter to 70, and I absoultely loved it! Now I’m using it for my Feral Druid, and I’m almost at level 50. I remember when on my Hunter, when I reached Searing Gorge a lot of the mobs were gray to me, and all the quests were green, or gray. (I had done tones of Maraudon and Sunken Temple runs, so that is probably why. I can’t resist popping into dungeons every now and again) Eventually, because I REALLY hate Searing Gorge, I just skipped it, and I was fine for the next bit of the guide. Is it ok to do this with my Druid as well? Searing Gorge makes me want to bash my head against my computer and cry. Thanks again 🙂

    After a patch dont rememberAfter a patch dont remember which one… the xp that someone needed to get between lvls got less… So now i am one and a half lvl ahead from ur guide and that because i sometimes skip some quests… I know that u have already said that being ahead is good but there are many green quests which give me little xp and some of them are even grey for me! (btw i used to be 2 lvls ahead but i stopped doing some quests). What should i do?

    Well…I’ve noticed that some people get “confuzed” (can’t find the right word) when they are to far ahead of your guide. I can’t see the problem Outland dont got any of the charm that Azherot got in my opinion. And most people just rush through it without noticing the work put in to the world. Now it seems like the only thing that matters is to get to level 70 as fast as poible. I’m now level 57 and just started level 54 in this guide. I’m happy since it’s my third character i’m leveling i just enjoy the quest skipping some boring ones and just having a great time. Think more people should do that.

    Awesome guide, thanks for all the hard work!I just leveled my third character to 60. I used the guides on wow-pro starting at level 1. I made a Draenai Hunter and my total played time from 0 to 60 is 6 days 11 minutes. I did a few hours of pvp and got ganked quite a few times, I also did Maraudon for a few hours, but that was it. All things considered I enjoyed it a lot.

    I found that I was consistently about 1.5 levels higher than the guides once I hit level 30 or so. I would even jump ahead in the guide periodically to the level that I was at and I would still end up getting ahead again. I don’t understand how, because I didn’t stray very far from the guide, and I can’t imagine that my drop rates were so horrible that I grinded for an extended period.

      Sep 8, 2008 @ 17:17

      When I calculate the amountWhen I calculate the amount of xp needed for each level I always add a little extra buffer to make sure people don’t fall behind, and I do that with zero exp bonus. So it’s perfectly normal that people are ahead of my guide.

      What surprises me is that a few people sometimes say that they fall behind, so I guess playstyle and drop rates make a big difference 😛

    3 mobs jumping youHey!

    First of all, great guide, I’m a terrible leveler and now in just three weeks, which is amazing for me, I’m level 60. 😉

    Although, I thought you might want to add that 3 level 57 mobs will jump you when you hand in Winterfall Runners. I had killed all three of them close to Donova Snowden, so when I handed it in I didn’t expect yet another three mobs to kill me (I kinda rushed back to Donova and had a low amount of hp). Anyway, I thought you might want to add that 😛

    Additional CircuitsHey Jame.

    I’m not asking this to push you by any means, but simply to ask a question about the additional circuits you have planned for the future.

    Are these circuits within Eastern and Western Plaguelands, or are are these also going to include Burning Steppes and Silithis as well? I noticed that both of these areas are missing from your current guides. Of course, I am not sure if they are even worth the effort as you would probably only gain XP for completed quests, but I am not sure.

    Thanks once again for the time you took to develop these guides, and thanks to everyone who has contributed to making it look good. And to anyone who is worried about being too far ahead of the guide near the end, just continue through. It is not that much more to work through, and it is better to go ahead and finish it than not. Trust someone who has done it both ways now. I took my shaman into Outlands at level 60 originally instead of completing the old world. I think I lost out on quite a lot that way. This time, my hunter has been about four levels ahead of the guide consistently throughout, and now I am level 61 and closing in on the end of the guide. I’m hoping to be level 62 before I touch Outlands.

    Thanks again!

    • img
      Sep 8, 2008 @ 19:33

      The circuits will be W.The circuits will be W. Plaguelands, E. Plaguelands and Silithus. I’ve decided to leave Burning Steppes out this time, it’s just not as good as the other zones and there’s already more than enough exp given from other zones.

      And I’m glad to see that you share my opinion about skipping old world zones to get to Outland faster. I just wish more people would try both methods and see for themselves 😛

    Additional Circuits?Hi Jamie.

    Thanks for a great guide, I enjoy using it between 30-60, because it keeps me from thinking too much, and that stretch is by far the most boring part of leveling a new alt. It’s very effective, and takes you through some of the important stuff which is great. And no insane grinds, or instance runs. Very nice job.

    I would like to see the additional circuits soon, though. It’s just that I try to level HH (or the horde equivalent) rep to honored via Ramparts and Blood Furnace before questing in Hellfire Peninsula, since you can get pretty close to exalted that way – and it takes a while getting groups together, so it would be nice to be able to level in the old world instead! 🙂

    Extra quest.Hey, I wanted to add in that there is a quest you can get from the innkeeper right after the Searing Gorge circuit. If you pick that up, you can go to Darnassus (where we’re going to anyway) and then the follow up is a Un’Goro Soil quest. Just wanted to add that in 🙂

    Août 16, 2008 @ 23:43

    Super Sticky?I was delivering my quests in Gadgetzan, I think the Super Sticky (after Un’Goro long part, lvl 55) quest isn’t mentioned in the guide, but it says you need to deliver it. Could it be possible you forgot to mention to do this quest too?

    I got a useful tip offI got a useful tip off somebody (can’t remember their name) while levelling my druid (Must be 4th or 5th character using your guides ;)) Anyway, on the Winterfall Runners quest, nine times out of ten it’s faster to go back to the cauldron in felwood where you’ll find a lone Winterfall runner, instead of searching along the whole road.

    Keep up the good work Jame, hope to see your WotLK guides in the works! 😛

    Another great XP boostWhen I was leveling my last character (think it was my priest, but doesn’t matter), I found another HUGE XP-boost in the Eastern Plaguelands, which is not in this guide (yet).

    In the patch in which Naxxramas was added, a few repeatable quests for reputation with Argent Dawn were added. The “repeats” only give rep, but the first hand-ins give almost 10K XP each. If you make sure you have 30 Bone Fragments, Savage Frond, Dark Iron Scraps, Crypt Fiend Parts and Core of Elements, you can get close to 50K XP in a few seconds.

    lvl 54 un’goroHey james 🙂 first of all i’d like to say i’d like to thank you for making awesome guides. they really helped me alot 😀

    and then second, in the lvl 54 part of un’goro u say this:

    “. Go southwest until you hit the river (40,27). On the southern side of the river you’ll find plenty of Dinos and some Oozes.

    In this area, kill every Frenzied Pterrordax, Elder Diametradon and Ooze you find. Open the bag of empty ooze containers from your inventory and put the 10 Empty Pure Sample Jar on a hotkey. Everytime you kill an ooze, loot it and then target the corpse and click the jars to fill them up. You can stop killing Oozes once you got 10 Pure Samples.

    Keep doing this until you complete:

    [51] Shizzle’s Flyer
    [51] Roll the Bones (they drop from the Elder Diametradons approximately 25% drop chance)
    [54] A Little Slime Goes a Long Way
    15/15 Frenzied Pterrordax kills ”

    maybe you should also say that “muigin and larion” can be completed in this area aswell :)?


    the quest roll the bones can be completed much faster and easier by going to the area around 30.77 wich u tell us to go in the next step anyway.. 🙂

    well thats all.. cya 😀

    Additional Quest(s) at Level 51 + Nice WeaponFirst of all, and even though I’m sure you’ll slowly grow tired of it… thanks a lot for writing up these guides, they’re excellent. I would like to suggest a short trip to Alterac Valley at level 51 for the following reasons:

    Quest: Hero of the Stormpike (
    Not only does this quest and the other Alterac Valley related ones (capture a tower, mine, graveyard – all of which can be done “on the fly”) reward excellent experience (game won: ~10600 at level 51, towers etc. ~7000), but also does the Hero of the Stormpike quest reward really nice weapons that, at least in my case as a hunter, will last me until I hit Outland. Although the quest says that you have to kill Drek’Thar, it is sufficient to just win the game.

    I didn’t read all comments to see whether this has been suggested before, but I think it would fit in exceptionally well after the Searing Gorge quest circuits have brought you to level 51. If you fit in Ironforge between Searing Gorge and Alterac Valley, you can even grab “The Sovereign Imperative” ( there, which rewarded me with another 5k worth of EP just for turning it in at the Alterac Valley quest givers.

    So far,
    Greetings from Germany,

    SalutationsSalutations. Just wanted to drop some praise for your guides. I’ve levelled four characters to 60+ using them. Honestly, one time casually through the game is enough. Now I just want to be 70 and get on with it.

    Anyways! I have a suggestion for you. At the start of the level 56 circuit, the same mobs that spawn at the Timbermaw Hold also spawn up at the Frostfire Springs starting at about 33, 38 and going north-west (in Winterspring). I recommend possibly flagging it with a 2 as well, as the Denwatchers that spawn at Timbermaw Hold are a shared spawn with Totemics. And if you have even one other person there, you can spend a considerable amount of time waiting around and grinding on them; which I personally find very frustrating.

    Keep up the great work. 🙂

    Thank you!I used your Horde guide to get to 70 and am using it again for an alt…I used this page on my death knight in beta, it’s very good. The one thing I noticed though is you tell people to take quests and then they’re never used, as well as the Tirion quests are never turned in. But again, thanks for these, I leveled 5 Alliance to 70 on my own but had no idea how to do Horde, and your guide made it easy!

    Extremely AppreciativeJame,

    I’ve been using your guides now for quite some time, leveling 5 chars to 70 with such rapid and fluid pace thanks to you. I found these guides immensely helpful when I first got back into WoW and really needed some guidance through the 30-60 area. These guides allowed me to still enjoy the rich questing Warcraft has to offer as you take us through both the popular and more remote quest lines — all while maximizing xp/hour. After many level 70 chars and learning the game inside and out, I STILL find your guides immensely helpful, using them to this day. Sure, I know where to level, quest, and grind but not even close to the efficiency that your routes offer.

    Just to emphasize just how fast your guides are, I was able to go from 1-60 on a newly created shaman in just over 4 days played.

    What makes your guides truly stand out over the rest (and I read them all before coming across yours) are a couple things:

    1. You effortlessly establish your authority and credibility with top-notch analysis and guidance within World of Warcraft (allowing us to completely trust and follow your guides)

    2. You have excellent writing skills, allowing you to [i]concisely[/i] guide us through the leveling process with as little reading (downtime) as possible

    3. The guides are utterly complete.

    4. The guides are virtually error free in every sense.

    5. You offer these guides for FREE! (something he does not have to do, considering these are far better than guides you have to pay for)

    So I just wanted to post all my thanks for the great deal of time you guys here at wow-pro put into these guides — the effort really shows, making these in my opinion the best leveling guides out there. Period. Look forward to Jame’s Alliance 70-75 and 75-80! 🙂

    –Necter Kel`Thuzad Alliance

    PS. I love these guides. This will be the 4th character leveled to 60 with them, and probably the 3rd to 70. Thank you 😉

    Your Daily Praise =)JUST in case you haven’t gotten your daily, heartfelt thanks from the millions of WoW fans, I’m here to say what everyone thinks of you. You are an ABSOLUTELY HOLY FLIPPING WHAT THE HELL AWESOMEST person I have EVER known. You provide us with such efficient guides that you put the GOD OF GUIDES to shame. Not only that, you give it to us FOR FREE! I had just received an e-mail today about some guide that costs 30 bucks. I laughed and pressed the delete button. ^^ Again thank you SO much for being awesome. You have changed WoW and WoWers forever.

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

    There are people that are awesome, people that radiate awesome, and then there’s…….James!!!

    Ungoro how we love it“3. Go southeast to the Expedition Camp at (38,66), try to avoid the aggros as much as possible because most mobs are too tough for you here.”

    Used to be in your old guide, now they’re the same mobs you’ve just been grinding against. It’s the nasty elite spiked Stegadons and thunder lizards you want to avoid – though they have a tiny agro range.

    1. Bloodpetals of any kind (those walking flowers)
    2. Diametradons
    3. Pterrordaxes

    Might also want to specify to keep Un’Goro soil for bungle in jungle. You do say not to sell it later but bags are so full on this new grind that people who don’t know about it might delete it before they read that bit.

    Side note – out of interest why did you take outthe un’goro soil quest/morrograin – i picked up over 50 soils just doing the frezied/ooze grind so you’re still getting enough soil even if the quests are green at that point.

    • img
      Sep 18, 2008 @ 9:22

      I’ve got a lot of badI’ve got a lot of bad feedback on those quests. People getting bad luck with the morrowgrain and having to go back to Un’goro for extra soils. I finally decided to remove it altogether. The morrowgrain quest really fills up your bags with junk too, and picking all those soils up actually takes a lot of time if you combine everything.

    Think I hate this quest the most in Un’goro (though that hideous grind zone has some competition) because of the awful respawn rate. Might be worth mentioning if you’re still not done, there are another 6-7 Pterrordax at 56,88 which you can kill on your way to Torwa.

Go to the area which is southeast of the black pools where we killed the Tar beasts. There are plenty there and they are the easiest flowers to kill (65,27).”

    You almost certainly will have to do this unless you’ve actively gone after them – the opposite route you have now doesn’t take you across enough. Suggest you get people to grind on them between 2 and 4 on your map and then at 4 (the other expedition site) until they’re done.

    March of the Sillithid…First, thanks for the great guide.

    As a Night Elf, Although Exhaulted, I was unable to get the follow-up “March of the Sillithid” from Gracina Spiritmight as suggested in the 50-60 guide. (After leaving Searing Gorge around 52) Apparently many have had this issue. As there seems to be a conflict with another quest given by Alchemist Pestlezugg in Gadgetzan. As he is also a part of the Sillithid quest line. Regardless, many players, like myself, seem unable to recieve this quest. A minor issue to be sure, but something I thought worthy of mentioning.

    If this was previously addressed, my apologies. I didn’t have the time to explore every comment.

    runners==Warning== When you turn in the quest, 3 Furbolgs will spawn and attack you, so just quickly get the follow up [59] High Chief Winterfall and run away.

    Actually you can’t, even if you click really quickly – she walks to the lake…run away, wait for her to come back and then get the follow up.

    additional circuits status?Jame,

    This guide is wonderful – my hunter is level 61 as of today, and I started playing WoW about three weeks ago. I was wondering if you had any additional news on the optional circuit(s) at the end – last update on that I see is a few weeks old and I don’t see anything on the news page.

    Thanks again for a _great_ guide, just amazing.

      Hey. Sorry, but I don’t haveHey. Sorry, but I don’t have any ETA on the additionnal circuits for now, as I’m really trying hard to finish the 70-80 before the release of WotLK. Check the news page regularly and it will be announced there sooner or later 🙂

    A little errorHi Jame, thanks for the guide first of all, it’s awesome, but there’s an error in a quest you tell we have to have in the quest log at the start of this part of the guide: [53]The Scent of Lar’korwi
    We can’t have it the quest log ’cause you told to don’t get the follow up which is this, I’ve missed something or is it really an error?

      Sep 25, 2008 @ 19:08

      Hmm you must have misreadHmm you must have misread me. In the previous chapter, I say:
      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.[/quote]

        Heya Jame,

        I see what he’sHeya Jame,

        I see what he’s talking about. Step 4 of lvl 49 is what you quoted, but continue down to step 7. You have us turning in The Scent of Lar’korwi and ignoring the followup, The Bait for Lar’korwi.

        Then in level 54 we’re still expected to have The Scent of Lar’korwi… which by the guide we already turned in and don’t have the followup for.

        I tripped over that myself.

        <3 you and your guidiness!

    2. [56] Blood Tinged Skies
    3. [56] Carrion Grubbage
    Also, the [Troubled Spirits of Kel’Theril] quest could be turned in now, no?

    Minor bobbleHope you’re having a good time trailblazing for us in WotLK!

    I noted that the guide has us pick up Are We There, Yeti? in lvl 56, step 4, then again right after the start of lvl 57. The second one’s when we actually work on it, so the first one can probably be removed.

    Also might want to note on the actual kill part of the guide for this quest, skinners should take advantage of the fact that they will skin the quest item off the yeti far more often than they’ll get it from normal kill drops.

    A few typos xDHey Jame, thanks for the guides. Currently level 52 at the beginning of the 51 part, despite missing the Hinterlands circuit xD
    I spotted a few typos. Firstly:

    Go back to Rut’theran Village, fly to Astraanar, [b]of[/b] if you don’t have that flight path, fly to Auberdine, then keep following the road until you hit Astraanar (36,49).
    Get the flight path if you don’t already have it.

    I think ‘of’ should be ‘or’ :p

    Secondly, step 7, level 51. You forgot the ‘C’ in torch. So, it says Torh.
    Not huge mistakes. But.. I have an eye for mispelling and typos. I think I have a OCD with it tbh >;D

      First, you must do the firstFirst, you must do the first Un’goro Crater circuit (it’s at the end of the previous alliance chapter).

      Then, come back to this chapter and skip to this point:
      Go to the bank and put the 30 Dark Iron Scraps there, I’ll tell you when to pick them up.

      Go to the Hall of Explorers, turn in [46] Suntara Stones, don’t get the follow up.[/quote]

      This is just after the searing gorge circuit.

      Then just follow the guide normally and just ignore the quests you can’t get (if there’s any).

    Quests to add possiblyIt seems that when you are in Western Plaguelands doing “all along the watchtowers” you should have people pick up the quest to kill the grubs from the silos and then the follow up to collect the watches. I did both these during your circuit and picked up an easy 18k from 4 minutes work. Thanks,

    Empty Firewater FlaskI am a bit confused maybe but I can’t get this to drop. I don’t know if maybe I missed a pre-quest or don’t meet requirements? I’m a 58 warlock. I don’t think I’ve missed anything in this guide (aside from optional circuits.) I’m on my 6th soulstone so I’ve been here 2 hrs @ the very least. I also was @ the camp @ 31, 36 and cleared it about 5-6 times. But now there are many other people here so I can barely get a kill in edgewise. Is this quest necessary? Do you know of any reqs or issues with this quest? I got the totem within 10 kills and I’ve gotten many winterfall firewaters but no empty firewater flask. 😕 Pls help…

    Finished! What about leftovers?Jame,

    I began your lvl 30 guide at about lvl 35, but I have enjoyed being slightly higher level through hundreds of quests now, thanks to your well-written and to-the-point guides! Just moments ago, I finished Chapter III but I’m level 62. I definitely feel prepared to go to Outland now, but just a quick question:

    Why do I still have these quests? 😕
    – Defenders of the Darrowshire
    – Zaeldarr the Outcast
    – The Restless Souls
    – Skeletal Fragments
    – Alas, Andorhal
    – Troubled Spirits of Kel’Theril

    You had us pick up a few of them in/near Light’s Hope Chapel. I started to look through Chapter IV but they seem to only be Outland quests, and the end of this Chapter seems to be concluding all Azeroth quests. Am I missing something? I know I just need to grind for Skeletal Fragments, and I have the 4 relic fragments for the last quest, but you told us to put them in the bank and didn’t mention when to get them out.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Oct 29, 2008 @ 8:41

      That’s because I stillThat’s because I still haven’t released the optional circuits for the plaguelands, I just didn’t get the time, so you’ll have to either abandon these quests or finish them on your own

      • img
        Oct 29, 2008 @ 15:28

        No rush.Jame,

        Well I don’t mean to rush you at all. I know you’ve been busy with WoTLK and such! I explored a little of the northern part of Eastern Plaguelands, found Aurora Skycaller, and turned in Troubled Spirits of Kel’Theril. I abandoned skeletal fragments and the rest of the quests so I could start in Outland with zero. Beginning your 60-70 guide as a lvl 62.5, I’m hoping to ding 70 when you say I should be dinging 66, especially with the new WoTLK xp rates, right?

        Keep up the great work!

      Stave of the EquinexHello James, I have never had a problem with your guide since I was level 48 (When I first started following) and took me a while to follow up to be with the guide, but when you have gotten to the quest “The Stave of the equinex” I went to Feathermoon Stronghold and I got a quest from Troyas Moonbreeze which was to go to Tedrasil which I thought was to get a follow up The Stave of the equinex, which I did not get, and I don’t want to skip this quest because I think it will lead to later something in your guide.

      Thanks 🙂

    just wondering, with the new patch you cant go from Menethil Harbor to Auberdine. I could be wrong but i think you have to go to SW now. This would apply to a lot of your guides so if i am right you should think about changing it.

    Un’Goro SoilWhen you go to Darnassus to turn in the Wildkin of Elune to the guy in the tower, you can get a quest to turn in 20 un’goro soil to the ditch digger behind the enclave. It’s only 2700 XP, but you get a nifty little 1g45s, and it’s worth the extra 3 seconds to turn it in.

    one more thingSorry to keep commenting on your guides, I love them and I think they are uber-efficient. I use them for every character. I noticed, though, when I was in Timbermaw hold turning in the totem quests, there was a quest you could get from the vendor inside who sells the enchanting recipes and it’s for a donation of Runecloth.

    You have to be friendly to get the quest, but as a rogue who avoided quite a bit of killing, I was quite handily friendly. For donating 30 runecloth, which I had plenty of at that time, just for the Winterfall quests, I got over 8000xp. Two rewards you can choose are +18agi leather shoulders or +18str mail gloves. I believe you also get 500 timbermaw rep, which is nice if you want to buy some of their stuff.

    Just another note to go in the pile.

    Keep up the good work.

    (i’m also planning to follow your 60-70 guides to every word and will comment on there my dinging progress.)

    There’s nothing better than this!Jame, I would like to say thank you for those guides. While my first 30 levels were pain in the butt (chaotic questing, redundancy, lots of traveling) now it’s a piece of cake. I can sit down for short 2-4 hours sessions (which is good, since I don’t really have much free time due to work and family stuff) and level my character one up. That’s what I call efficiency! Now I’m proud 57lvl Druid while three weeks ago I was 45lvl. I had a big break since January but even then I’ve been using your guide (pre 2.4.3) to level my character from around 37lvl to 45lvl.

    I’ve also wrote couple of words about your guides in Polish language on my personal website although I think if there’s anyone, who wants to power-level in a quick and nice manner he/she already found out about your guides 🙂 Keep up the good work and may Elune guide your path!

    Quick correction.Hey Jame, I just wanted to point out something in your guide that needs to be updated. In the level 51 section, after returning to Ironforge, you have, “Fly to Menethil Harbor and take the boat to Auberdine, then fly to Rut’theran Village, go to Darnassus and find the Temple of the Moon.” This boat route is now located in Stormwind Harbor.

    SI: 7 Marks changedHi Jame,
    First off, I love you guides they are brilliant and effective, easily have reached 60 in less then 5 days played numerous times.
    As for the marks in eastern plague lands these have actually moved with the new EPL zoning map. Unfortunately I left my notes somewhere, but wowhead has the new cords added in the notes section, I will try to add it later when I find them. Also, It is probably worth turning in the 3 quest from Tirion Fordring before Hearthing to SW, at lv 61 I still received about 9000 xp each, for a short run not bad. Other then these notes everything ran great.

    Where to Start?Hey Jame, I was just wondering where I should start on your guide.I’m now lvl 55 1/2 and I’ve finished all the quests in Felwood already and in Un’Goro since I started in those areas at lvl 50. I just started in winterspring and have finished some of the quests. Any advice on where i should start in your guide?

  • img
    Nov 30, 2008 @ 9:51

    Continue?First of all, awesome guide, im leveling extremely fast using this, im usually two levels ahead of the guide. im nearing lvl 60, and im starting the last circuit in winterspring. im pretty sure that will level me to 60. so should i start the plaugelands at lvl 60 or skip them altogether and go to the outlands? im a paladin, so the plaguelands should be fun, since i can slaughter undead, but the outlands sound cool as well.

    Anyway thanks for the guide, its amazing!

    • img
      Nov 30, 2008 @ 14:04

      I’d start the plaguelandsI’d start the plaguelands circuit.

      You will be level 61/62 when you will go to Outland if you do that.

      Which results in more money, easier leveling, etcetra.

    Skip?Hey Jame, I love the guide! It’s helped me loads. Unfortuneatly, I decided to do alot of instances recently, and I am level 52 just starting the level 50 circuit. Is there anywhere i can skip to? Thanks 🙂

      Stick to the GuideMy opinion probably counts one-millionth as much as Jame’s in this situation, but I agree. I started in about the same place; my Warrior’s leveling slowed to a crawl in his late 40’s and early 50’s, so just after dinging level 52, I started following Jame’s guide at the beginning of this page (the Level 50 section). So far (lvl 57), I’m still dinging right about where the guide says I will, except two levels higher. Of course, it probably doesn’t hurt that I tend to do a bit of grinding en route to quest objectives; over the past ten /days I’ve developed a major grudge against certain mobs, so “collect 30 naga claws” somehow translates to “clear the entire naga camp and burn it to the ground.”

      … wait, where was I? Oh yeah. Being a level or two ahead doesn’t seem to hurt the EXP/hour at all; your mobs and quests [i]may[/i] yield slightly less EXP, but those mobs and quests will require far less time and effort, so it evens out.

    Déc 10, 2008 @ 16:16

    Easy Addition?
    I just wanted to say thanks for the guides, i honestly think you should sell them they are worth their weight in gold 🙂

    I took a quest from Ruth’eran Village for Moontouched feathers (i think it was a follow-up to the feathers from the hinterlands). It requires 10 feathers from Winterspring and I managed to collect them no problem when you send us there from Felwood to hand in a quest. Dont know weather you have it in the guide later but just incase you don’t.

    keep up the amazing guides.

      Déc 10, 2008 @ 22:25

      I don’t know how many timesI don’t know how many times I will have to explain that one, but in short:

      Plaguelands circuits = 180K XP /hour
      Hellfire circuits= 140K XP /hour

      Also, I don’t find Outland to be more fun than Plaguelands, I’ve done Hellfire penninsula a dozen of times and it’s just as boring as plaguelands to me. Plaguelands is faster though, so I don’t skip it.

      Also, if you go to Hellfire at level 60 or 61, you will complete the quests much faster and easier than if you got at level 58.

      Also, some quests have a level 61+ requirement in Hellfire. If you go there at 58, you won’t be able to do all the quests, and that’s too bad.

      As Jame has stated manyAs Jame has stated many times, while it may seem to be quick going to Outland at 58, its much less efficient. You will not be able to follow Jame’s guides very well because quests won’t be available. You will have to grind on mobs that are higher level than you. Grinding is never more efficient, and is generally less fun for most people. Plus, it’s a real disadvantage if you are trying to get achievements – might as well stay in Azeroth to get the loremaster achievements while you still get XP for them!

      Jame has shown with solid XP rate evidence that staying in Azeroth til 60 is just better.

    Rescue from JaedenarHi,

    First of all , thanks for your amazing job, leveling a rogue , third char using your guides and it’s still amaze me.

    Lvl 55 by now, I went to do the escort quest in Jaedenar , it seems that it has been changed. When the NPC get her stuff back, instead of running into 3 demons , she runs into one, then the two others are appearing a little bit after and in the next room, there are 2 others demons. Duoed it, because I had bad remembers of soloing it with a druid but as it seems to have been changed I guess this should be easier to do it alone now.
    Thanks again.

    Stave of the EquinexHey James, I’m new to commenting on this website, I think I did it wrong last time >.> but I needed help on this quest ‘The Stave of the Equinex’. In the guide you said go to Troyas Moonbreeze and get the quest from him, but he had a different quest and its common to think if I finish that quest and I will get a follow up for the quest in the guide, seems not heh. So any advice on what to do? Do I skip it or can you tell me what to do.

    Thanks 🙂

    Tirion Fordring QuestsHey Jame!

    Love the guides–been following them since level 30, and I’m 61 now.

    In the end of this guide, you say to complete the 3 quests that Tirion Fordring gives, Demon Dogs, Blood Tinged Skies, and Carrion Grubbage. You never tell us to turn them back in, which I noticed give 8450 (IIRC) xp each at level 60.

    Farmer DalsonI know you said there was a problem with interacting with the outhouse, but it either is really rare of a glitch or it some how is fixed or its an old comment regarding that quest. I was bored so I had a few of my friends in the area do the quest and it worked 6 for 6 and no one had any problems.

    Better Late than Never & Good Natured EmmaLast part of level 58. You might want to add to the guide to take the follow-up to “Better Late” so you can turn in at Emma. I ran around for a time before I figured that one out. Great guide, been with you from lvl 30 to 60!

    Death KnightHey James,

    I really love your guide, i kinda use it all the time !! Leveled to lvl 70 whit it and now with the WOTLK expansion i started my deathknight.

    Your guide doesn’t have a ‘starting point’ marked for Deathknight. So i tought I would post the one i used here. I started leveling whit my DK at the point in lvl 58:

    1. Go to Stormwind Keep and get the quest [62] The First and the Last from King Varian Wrynn.

    2. Go talk to Mathias Shaw in the Old Town, he’s on the first floor of the big building named SI:7.

    Turn in the quest [62] The First and the last, get the follow up, turn it in and get the follow up [62] Flint Shadowmore.

    Go to the inn and make Stormwind your home location.

    REASON: When you finish your DK-Questline you need to walk to Stormwind Keep and turn in a Q at Varian Wrynn and the Q [62] The First and the Last is it’s followup so it fits nicely into the guide.

    I hope I helped my fellow DK’s out.

    And again, keep up the good work James !!

    I level too fast, now what do I do? I’ve been having a problem using this guide, as I’m still a relative noob i’d appreciate any suggestions:

    The problem is, I’m a 54 almost 55 and i’m at the quest guide at level 52. I always shoot ahead because I usually play rested, and i’ve been working leatherworking (extra killing)

    Stepping into this guide is very difficult, if I ignore quests and just go to level 55 in the quest guide I’m afraid i’ll end up missing pre-reqs or follow ons and get lost. conversely i’m not sure if its best to continue 2 levels ahead of the guide

    any suggestions?

    • img
      Jan 11, 2009 @ 19:03

      2 levels ahead of the guide2 levels ahead of the guide is awesome. Don’t worry about it.

      As long as they quests you do aren’t grey to you, it’s fine, keep going. Skip the optional circuits though whenever there’s one.

    StealthAt point 3 on the first map you write: Humans: use perception / Warlocks: Buff yourself with detect invisibility.
    However, perception is now passive so the mention is kinda redundant, and detect invisibility doesn’t help you detect stealthed things.

    Some ideasHi Jame! I’ve enjoyed your guides and i love them.
    “Once you’re neutral with the Timbermaw, enter the tunnel. Find a furbolgs named Kernda, he’s in the middle tunnel going north. Turn in [55] Deadwood Ritual Totem and [56] Winterfall Ritual Totem.”
    Well, after I did that thing and I was friendly with furbolgs, I saw a new quest next to Kernda, [55] Runecloth from Meilosh which required 30 Runecloths that people usually should have at this level. And that quest gives over 8k exp, so it would be nice 😛
    And you’ve said that we should collect Savage Frond for quest on 60. But you didn’t say anything about that quest. So let’s sell Savage Frond on AH or write about that quest 😛

    Tour Guide correctionDunno how maintains the tourguide file for this guide, but where you say
    “Go to Stormwind and take the boat to Auberdine, then fly to Rut’theran Village, go to Darnassus and find the Temple of the Moon.”,
    the tour guide is sending me to Menethil Harbor. Also, it might be useful to note that the ship for Auberdine starts from the south dock (north is for Outlands). Although that might have been mentioned in earlier guides, I started with this one.

    Western Plagueland CircuitAlong the way to step 3 (Kirsta Deepshadow), I suggest killing Carrion Lurkers seeing that they are place holders for the Diseased Wolves (quest target shortly after returning from SW) that will respawn later for your quest. Just a suggestion, considering the Lurkers will be green mobs to you (guide follower), but will help out immensly while doing the fallen druids quest (I forgot the name of the quest). Thanks,

    BlazerunnerHi all,

    About the last part of the Linken’s Adventure questline, -It’s Dangerous to Go Alone- I beleive its called; well I decided to give it a go on my 59 combat rogue, maces spec. The note about this quest in the guide said it was a tough fight with a 55+ priest, a pala and a rogue, so I was prepared to die, but since I couldnt find any help I though, hell ill just go kamikaze style.
    Anyway, I killed him. Just stacked evasion, adrenaline rush and blade flurry, cheap shot, SS, SS, SS, Rupture, then just SS’d a bit more and suddenly his aura was back but my rupture got the rest of him, I used a potion in the end but dont think it was really necessary. Not sure if they nerfed this mob recently but it sure wasnt very hard.

    Just thought i’d let others know so they might give it a go solo if they cant find help 😀

      Jame usually recommends youJame usually recommends you stick with the guide until you are killing gray mobs or doing gray quests. I agree with the exception that if you really dislike a certain area or series of quests, just skip em, especially if you are ahead. However if you are interested in quest achievements, you should try to do them all.

    Just a thought,IN the guide when we have to go to Iron forge to turn in “A little slime goes a long way” then go to SW and get the quest from the king, and go to SI and turn it in..

    I found that doing it in reverse was a lot faster.. Going to SW since the Harbor is already there go make the inn, go to the SW keep get the quest turn it in take the tram to Iron Forge then turn in the quest then fly to Aeire Peak since the flight is a lot shorter now..

    =) thought it could be of some help

    Time frameFirst things first….Thanx James for the great guides and appreciation for the time and effort you have put into making them.

    If this is in here somewhere then I appologize for the redundancy.

    Had a problem a while ago with naming a character (on WOW…not here), (not exactly sure why) and subsequently had to delete my chars. Eager to get back to my original status asap I found your leveling guides and decided to give them a try (best search I ever did on the net).

    To put things in a time frame in case anyone is curious how long it takes…..

    Night elf hunter 52 (as of the start of this guide). It took me GAME TIME 5 days ??minutes……REAL TIME maybe 3-4 weeks.

    I usually play about 1 hour before work then about 2 hours after work during the week, on the weekends I play anywhere up to 5 or 6 hours. Have only done 1 instance (Deadmines) but found it too time consuming (for me anyway) and I solo everything. I rest (log out) anywhere I can, not always an inn or city. Been lucky most of the time as when I log in again its time for a boss or elite fight and I get full exp. Im lazy to do the math 😕 but in a nutshell…From level 1 NE Hunter to lev 52 (+3 bubbles) in about a month real time. Was worth it to me. Im sure a serious gamer can do it in far less time

    Sure you miss alot of things doing the power leveling but having a money making machine (high lev char) for all subsequent alts is such a time saver (and life saver).

    And now im level 50 and I already did the zones of level 51 52 ferelas and searing gorge.. And I don’t want to go back to them =(

    And Usualy I do quests that are yellow or orange like now im standing at western plageluands but you move their much later. And I really wanne follow your guide all the way to 60. So what do you suggest me to do?

    Thanks in advance James,

      Jame won’t be back untilJame won’t be back until Sunday, so I’ll do my best to answer.

      First off, it’s Jame not James 😉 lots of people make this mistake, so no worries.

      Jame does usually have us do yellow or green quests in his guides. The reason for this is that the increased speed makes up for the slightly lower XP, and there is a lot less risk of dying.

      I would suggest you find the lowest zone in the 50-60 section that you have not completed and start there. With the addon, it’s pretty easy to jump in somewhere. I would recommend starting with Un’Goro crater, if you haven’t been there yet. To help catch up, just kill every mob on your way as you go, or get some friends together and run a few instances. You should be caught up in no time! 🙂

    Help Skipping.
    Hi Jame,

    Please could you help me, firstly thanks for the guides, I have followed them on my Mage from level 20. I used to play WoW before WOTLK and had a lvl 70 Druid, and lvl 60 Warrior, but I decided to start fresh and lvl a Mage. Your guides were good and fairly flexible if people wanted to grind instances with friends / guilds etc.

    However I have found myself in a bit of a predicament. I am currently level 55, but I am only just coming up to the part in your Manual at the end of lvl 51 where I goto Azshara and quest there before hitting lvl 52.

    I am eager to catch up with the guide where it makes the most XP possible from the quests, and wondered if you could suggest a good point to skip to? Personally I would like to skip Azshara, and Felwood and maybe pickup from the point before it sends you into Un’Goro, what do you think?

    If it helps I could list the quests I currently have in my quest log for you.

    Thanks in advance.

      As long as the quests areAs long as the quests are green to you I suggest you just follow the guide because you get only a very slight amount less xp from the quest, but you will be able to finishe them much faster.

      If you definitely want to skip something I can’t tell you where exactly to go, but the beginning of a new area, so Felwood or Un’Goro as you said, would be a good idea.

    Alterac Valley at 51 & Hunter’s Quests in AshzaraI’d been waiting to play Alterac Valley since I first started playing WoW. As soon as I hit 51, I headed to the AV entrance in Hillsbrad and grabbed the quests. I highly recommend this if you enjoy playing the BG’s. I made at least 30% of level 51 in my first three matches from the quests and the mob XP. Also, if you’re a hunter, you get an Ice Barbed Spear after you win your first match (which Alliance does most of the time) That is about the best weapon you can get at that level. I hit with Raptor Strike for almost as much as my Arcane Shot using that bad boy.

    Also for hunters, when you train at 50, grab the quest that’s available to you. This quest is easy to work into the Ashzara chain. The first quest in the chain can be done on the way to Kim’Jael. The second part can be done near the helipad, or if you’re having trouble with the 53 and 54 threshers, you can take a (long) detour up to the northeast coast. The last quest in the chain is in the Sunken Temple instance. The XP is good on these quests and the trinket rewards are very nice. If you do it, skip the spear. The AV quest reward is much better and you only have to win 1 match to get it. It’s worth the time even if you don’t like PVP.

    I just turned in Return To Tymore and did all of the above except for one AV quest and the Sunken Temple quest in the hunter’s chain. I’m 55% of the way to level 54, about one level ahead of the guide.

    Optional Circuit in Blasted LandsThe quests in Blasted Lands’ optional circuit require:-
    6 Scorpok Pincers
    5 Snickerfang Jowels
    6 Blasted Boar Lungs
    14 Vulture Gizzards
    11 Basilisk Brains

    Personally, I found it very difficult to get the Vulture Gizzards, partly because there are only a few Vultures spawns (I’d estimate 6-7) and partly because they’re approximately a 40% drop rate. Therefore I’d recommend skipping out the “Vultures Vigor” quest, it’ll save you a lot of time considering how much xp you get for doing it. Of course I may have just had bad luck. The only reason I completed all of them is because I was playing very late and mining Thorium/Mithril at the same time.

    P.S. If memory serves the Vultures Vigor quest requires 10 Gizzards and 2 Jowels, so alter your “shopping list” accordingly 🙂

    /bigteddybearhugI would like to thank Jame and everyone else involved for these guides, leveling a huntard atm, it’ll be my 4th toon to level with them!

    I just have a suggestion for a quest to pick up along the way, if there is a reason for not, and/or if there is a prior post regarding this I apologize in advance.

    50-60: Part of step 3 (54) we find ourselves in Darnassus. I think it would, for most, be beneficial to pick up “Assisting Arch Druid Staghelm”—>”Un’Goro Soil”. I have found from my past experiences with other characters, as well as this one, that you tend to pick up more than enough for this quest.

    It can be turned in just before the start of the level 57 portion of your guide when “Moontouched Wildkin” is turned in.

    Also, I said it was beneficial “for most” because it turns grey at 59 (dinged just before 🙁 ) This toon and the one before it, with heirloom shoulders and 1 or 2 dungeon runs, seem to stay around 2 levels ahead of the guide. No Complaints!

    Thanks again!!!

    A Brief Guide to the Optional Plagueland Circuits#~~~~~~~~~~~#
    This is a brief guide of the optional circuit left at the end of this section the guide. Having completed a few quests in HFP, then doing the following, I reached 62 comfortably. I’m not trying to steal any credit from Jame, I just thought this may help him out.
    <3 Exitium

    Follow Jame's guide up to the bit about hearthing to Stormwind to turn in "The Plagurbringer Cometh".

    Instead of Hearthing, head east to Sorrow Hill and Find Marlene Redpath, turn in your quest and take the follow up. Head North out of the house and "loot" the sparkling Grave to get the ring.

    Head to the Northern Edge of Andorhal via the outskirts, in one of the houses (40,68) there will be a Gnome called Chromie, turn in your quest and take the follow-up. Head east out of the house and head for the large building with a tower, enter the building (you may have to clear a pack of 4 mobs, but this is easily done if you play it right).

    Now, inside there will be several tomes laid on the ground, one is the quest book we're after, the others are booby traps, the trick to tell which the real one is, is the colours of the pages, so highlight each one in turn, zoom in and check the colour of the pages. The real one has a grey/white fade. The fake books have a clearly defined White/Grey split. Once you have the book, sneak or fight your way out.

    Head to the north-East edge of Andorhal, you should see several Wooden Towers with a Blue glow. Approach one and use the "Temporal Displacer" from your bags. Doing this will spawn between one and six Temporal Parasites, they have approximately 700health and spawn sequentially when you kill one(i.e. not all at the same time). Sometimes you will get two up at once. Repeat this until you have 10 Parasite kills.

    Head back to Chromie and turn both quests in. Take both follow-ups.

    In the ruins around Andorhal there will be Small Lockboxes containing "Andorhal Watch", kill mobs and collect them until you have 5. Return to Chromie and turn "Counting Out Time" in.

    [[[[Now would be a good time to do "Alas Andorhal" using the quest reward you just got. It is possible to solo it if you pull the groups surrounding the boss carefully. Use the quest reward on Araj the Summoner to weaken him. Alternatively find someone to group with. If you can't do it, don't worry and just abandon the quest, this is an optional circuit after all.]]]]

    Head eastwards (hand in "The Wildlife Suffers Too" if you forgot to earlier) and make your way to Tirion Fordring, turn all 3 quests in. Take the follow up, listen to the story and hand the quest in. Get that follow up.

    Head South then South-East towards The Undercroft (,) clear your way towards and into the tomb. Kill Zaeldarr the Outcast and loot his head. Take the quest from the scroll on the floor. Exit the tomb and go behind it, you should see a sparkling patch of dirt, be warned, when you loot it, 4 Dwarfs will spawn from behind the Crypt itself. My advice is to pop your CDs and nuke down Mercutio Filthgorger. Run away, come back and loot the Hammer from him.

    Return to Tirion Fordring and turn in the quest. Take the follow-up.

    Hearthstone to Stormwind. Turn in your quest to King Varian Wrynn, don't get the follow up. Get all 4 Relic Fragments from your bank.

    Sell, repair and restock consumables. Fly to Light's Hope Chapel. Turn in Zaeldarr the Outcast at Caretaker Alen. Turn in your quest to Carlin Redpath, get the quest Villains of Darrowshire, but don't bother with the Heroes follow up.

    Head north to East Wall Tower, just above there, you should find a camp of undead mobs, clear it, after you kill any Diseased Flayers, make sure to talk to and free the Darrowshire Spirits that appear. After that head North-East to 66,29,clear the lake of Elementals and loot the Symbol of Lost Honor (it's underwater).

    Head North and then West to 59,18. Follow the slope up, clearing as you go, you should see a some temple stairs with a lot of patches of earth in front of it, clear round one side, you should see Hamiya the Infiltrator patrolling, wait until he gets to the side you cleared then pull him carefully, ideally you will only get one or two adds, kill them and loot Hamiya's Key.

    Leave the way you came then head west, past Northpass Tower, you should find Aurora Skycaller. Turn your quest in (ah, bagspace!). Don't get the follow up.

    Now head West towards Terrordale (11,29 to be exact). Hand in your quest, don't get the follow up, but take Augustus' Recipe Book from the other guy in the house. go into the Inn at 14,28 and kill everything in there, freeing spirits where appropriate. Loot Augustus' Book from the back room on the top floor.Go hand the quest in. If you spot and Cannibal Ghouls, kill them and release the spirit.

    Now, if the alliance control enough of the towers, take the Spectral Gryphon from Plaguewood Tower to Eastwall Tower. Then or otherwise head to 46,44, clear the lake and loot the Skull of Horgus.

    Now head south to the Infectis Scar, carefully drop into the scar at 46,59 and make your way to 49,60. Loot the Shattered Sword of Marduk. Get out of the scar (46,65) and go to Corin's Crossing, kill the Ghouls here and release spirits until you comple Defenders of Darrowshire.

    Now, head west to The Undercroft, go behind the tomb and turn in Hameya's Plea. Return to tirion Fordring and turn in his quest. Get the follow up and head south to Caer Darrow, the artist who did the painting is in the house at 66,75, complete the quest but don't take the follow up.

    Hearthstone to Light's Hope Chapel. Turn in Villains and Defenders of Darrowshire.

      Wow, very nice! HopefullyWow, very nice! Hopefully Jame will add this (or something like it) onto the end of the guide, and anyone working on the Alliance side addon, I suggest you add this in as well.

      Thanks for taking the time to write this!

        your very welcome, I hope ityour very welcome, I hope it comes in helpful. I could do with editing it slightly ut i don’t seem to have the option to, anyway, the part that is wrong is in Andorhal, I don’t mention to take both the follow-up quest and the other quest from Chromie. There are also a few typos but they aren’t so important.

    Thanks and SuggestionThanks for the leveling help, I was getting frustrated trying to find suitable quests at level 20 and now I’m 60+. I will definitely contribute.

    In Chillwind Camp: “Get [52] Clear the Way from Commander Ashlam Valorfist(the quest won’t appear over his head, so just find him).” I couldnt get this quest from Valorfist without first going to Stormwind and getting the quest “A Call to Arms: The Plaguelands!” from Crier Goodman. Goodman walks in a circuit around Stormwind.

      Check the later part of theCheck the later part of the 41-51 guide and try and find an area where you haven’t done many quests, and start there. If you get to a place where you have done a lot of the quests, skip ahead a little until you find a new area. This should allow you to catch up.

      If worst comes to worse, you’ll definitely be able to start the guide easily once you leave for Outland.

    “Turn in all the other“Turn in all the other blasted lands quest when they are done, don’t get the follow ups (they are repeatable if you want to get more of those consumable buffs later on).

    Hearthstone back to Ironforge, sell junk, repair, etc.

    ==End of Optional Circuit==

    Go to Stormwind, take the boat to Auberdine.

    Fly to Emerald Sanctuary. If you don’t have that flight path, simply follow the road from Astranaar to Felwood, and then keep going north until you find Emerald sanctuary (51,81).”

    In the addon version this tells you to go to Menethil Harbour still….

    Vulture’s VigorHey first let me say, I used your guides from when my rogue was 40 – 80 and my Shaman from 30 so great job. I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but do to the incredibly low spawns and drop rate of Vulture Gizzards, the quest Vulture’s Vigor is more of a pain then its worth. The quests that requires an Imperfect Draenithist Fragment should be able to make up for it. Just thought I’d let you know.

    Bulletinhead – Level 19 Hunter Twink
    Belaerial – Level 54 Shaman

    Regarding mech chicken and StalkersI would like to point out that the mechanical chicken quests now only have ONE group of 3 mobs. After which the chicken flies off and gives you quest credit. These quests are now easily soloable by any class that can kill 3 mobs at once. Also the silvermane stalkers in Hinterlands are no longer stealthed.

    These are just some things I noticed while using your guide. Thanks for making such a great guide.

    Beware of PterrordaxThis quest now only requires you to kill 10 frenzied pterrordax. Not the normal Pterrordax as well.

    Alternate for goto searing gorgeI have an alternate solution that may be quicker and is certainly nicer to do,
    instead of :
    In Ironforge, go to the inn and make it your home location.

    Go to the AH and buy 15 Silk Cloth if you don’t have that on you already. You’ll need them for a searing gorge quest.

    In short: Go to Searing Gorge.
    In details: From Ironforge, fly to Thelsamar, then go south to Badlands. In Badlands you can find the entrance to the Searing Gorge on the western end of the Badlands, south of Kargath (the horde outpost) at (3,61)

    Inside Searing Gorge:

    Follow the trail north and then west around the area named “The Cauldron” and find Kalaran Windblade (38,39).

    Instead follow this route to Searing gorge [URL][/URL]
    “go out of Thorium point and slightly south east till you find Kalaran Windblade”

    Cenarion Plant Salves questsI don’t know if it’s already has been mentioned before, but for enchanters it is possible to do Salve via Disenchanting which requires 1 Lesser Nether Essence – It’s easy XP. It’s mentioned in the linked guide, but many “power levelers” might not read that.

    I love these guides! II love these guides! I started when I was level 32, and now i am level 56. The one thing though is because of my horrible drop rate luck, I ended up being a few levels above the guide…usually 4-5 levels higher. But hey! easier to kill stuff right?

    level 58 first taski was wondering if anyone could help. it says: Ride to Lost Rigger Cove (68,41), inside lost rigger cove go south to the other side of the pirate camp and then west until you find a stone circle (70,49).

    Open the blue bag named Eridan’s Supplies, loot everything from it.

    i found the circle behind the pirate’s, but wondered where to find the blue bag, as i do not have it and cannot find it.
