Journey from Howling Fjord to Dragonblight

Introduction

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!

NOTE: Following this guide will get you the Quest Achievement for Howling Fjord: I’ve Toured the Fjord. In fact, 100% of the quests of Howling Fjord are included in the guide, or at least mentioned as optional.

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.


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.

Recommended


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

Optional

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:

Bags – Try to at least have 18-slot bags. We’ll go on long circuits far from any vendor, so bag space is necessary. If you can’t afford 18-slot bags, go for 16-slot ones, they are much cheaper.

The Guide:

If you followed my previous guide, you should already be in Valgarde Keep.

If you didn’t, simply go to Menethil Harbor. Go to the northern pier (5,57). Take the boat to Howling Fjord. The Boat will take you to Valgarde Keep.

Once in Valgarde Keep, get off the boat and get the quest [70] Hell Has Frozen Over…

Zoom out your minimap to the maximum, this will make it easier for you to locate quests.

Go to the yellow “?” on your minimap. Turn in [70] Hell Has Frozen Over… and get [70] If Valgarde Falls…

Get the new flight path

Go to the inn and make it your home location.

==Note== If you wish to train First Aid, the grand master trainer is in the middle of the town, walking around the bonfire.

Go to the gate on the north side of the village. Kill stuff there until you finish [70] If Valgarde Falls… It’s quite easy, let the guards help you.

Turn in [70] If Valgarde Falls… and get [70] Rescuing the Rescuers.

1. Go back to the north gate, go northwest while looking for Ceremonial Dragonflayer Harpoons on your way.

Right-click them.

At (56,55) you should find a path to get to Scout Valory. Go to her and get the quest [71] Fresh Legs.

2. Go back to Valgarde, turn in [70] Rescuing the Rescuers, get [70] Prisoners of Wyrmskull.
A bunch of quests should have just popped up on your minimap, get them all:

  • [71] The Path to Payback

3. Dive in the water and swim northeast to Harold Lagras (63,59). Get his quest [71] Daggercap Divin'.

Equip the Diving Helm from your inventory (you don’t need to though if your class has some sort of underwater breathing spell).

Now look around for Valgarde Supply Crates and loot them.

Also look for a Reagent Pouch on the deck of the wrecked ships nearby.

Once you have looted 10 Valgarde Supply Crates, go back to Harold Lagras, turn in [71] Daggercap Divin'.

Go back to Valgarde, turn in [71] Into the World of Spirits, get [71] The Echo of Ymiron.

Once you’ve rescued 3 prisoners, go back to Valgarde, turn in [70] Prisoners of Wyrmskull, get [70] Dragonflayer Battle Plans.

2. Go back to Wyrmskull Village, go northwest and down to a pit where you’ll find Zedd (57,52).

Go in the cave just west of Zedd, at the end of it you should find the Dragonflayer Battle Plans.

Loot them.

3. Get out of that pit and take the bridge going over it. At the end of the path after the bridge you’ll find the entrance to the Utgarde Catacombs (57,50).

Go down and keep going until you find Glorenfeld. Turn in [71] And Then There Were Two… and get [71] The Depths of Depravity.

==Note== From now on, look on the floor for Wyrmskull Tablets while following the next steps.

Go further inside and at the T intersection, turn left. At the end of this corrider you’ll find the Harpoon Operation Manual lying on the floor.

Loot the manual. Get full HP/mana before you get the quest from Ares the Oathbound. It’s a timed quest so you’ll have to follow my instructions quickly.

When ready, take the quest [71] The Shining Light.

Go back to the T intersection and go straight ahead.

Go down 2 flights of stairs.

Head north till the end of the corridor, don’t worry about all the ghouls down there, your shield will protect you.

At the end of that corridor you’ll find a Sacred Artifact.

Loot it and go back to Ares the Oathbound, turn in [71] The Shining Light, get [71] Guided by Honor.

Gather the last Wyrmskull Tabelts you still need and go back to Glorenfeld. Turn in [71] The Depths of Depravity, get [71] The Ring of Judgement.

Inside the building and right-click the Incense Burner.

You should see two Vrykuls having a conversation.

Listen to them and you’ll get a quest complete messsage for [71] The Echo of Ymiron. Once that’s done, right-click the Echo of Ymiron buff to cancel it.

Get out of the house, kill a Dragonflayer Harpooner and loot a Harpoon Control Mechanism.

2. From there, follow the trail going north along the water and then turn left, you’ll find Defender Mordun at the end of the path (60,49). Turn in [71] Fresh Legs, get [71] Into Utgarde!

OptionalInstance: Utgarde Keep

Now you can start looking for a group for the Utgarde Keep instance.

You already have all the quests for it:


  • [71] Disarmament
  • [71] Into Utgarde!

It’s a very quick instance for level 71-73 players, I recommend it.

If you don’t feel like it or if you don’t find a group, you can abandon the above 2 quests. They can easily be picked up in the future anyway, if you change your mind.

The 3 buildings you have to destroy are actually on the other side of the Fjord, as shown on the screenshot below:

Use Ability #1, aim for the roof of the first building with the green circle and left-click TWICE. (This cannon just works weirdly).

If you aimed well, some Flying Defenders will come and attack you. Target them one by one and use Ability #2.

Repeat this for the other two building and you should be done.

Once at the bottom, look around for blue crystals and use the Collect Data ability on them until you have collected 15 Iron Rune Data.

2. Look for the teleport rune called “Golem Transport – Top Level” at (73,73). Stand on the rune and use the Rocket Jump ability.

Put your Trained Rock Falcon on a hotkey.

We’re gonna look for Fjord Hawks, they’re found in pairs.

Problem: When you use your Falcon on one of them, the other one attacks you and you can’t use your Falcon on it as long as you’re still in combat. The only option is to kill it or run away.
Solution: We run away, come back and capture the second hawk, then move to the next spot. (Of course, if your class got some sort of aggro reset, use it, it saves time).

1. First Hawk Pair is right next to the Explorers’ League Outpost. Use your falcon and capture both Hawks.

2. Go north/northwest to the next Hawk Pair (74,60). Capture them both.

Then look up in the skies, there’s another Hawk Pair flying close to this spot every 15 seconds or so. Target one and wait for it to come close, then capture it. Run away and then capture the second hawk.

3. Keep going southwest to the next Hawk Pair (71,63). Capture Both

4. A little further west/southwest, past the road intersection, you should find another pair (68,64).

That should be 10 Hawks Captured now. If you’re missing some, then just restart this circuits and wait for respawns.

Get out of the keep and go to the blue “!” on your minimap. Get the daily bombing mission [71] Break the Blockade.

Wait for the Zeppelin and get on it.

Put Petrov’s Cluster Bombs on a hotkey.

In my experience, it’s best to position yourself at the very tip of the zeppelin, switch to walk mode for safety (hit the / key on your numpad), like on the screenshot below:

And then don’t move, just use your mouse’s left-click the rotate your camera, use the bombs and aim the green circle at the pirate canons. It’s best to aim for the canons, the pirates will die too in the process anyway.

If you don’t manage to complete the quest in one run, just stay on the zeppelin and do one more run.

There’s a tough elite called Abdul the Insane on the ship, he’s immune to cc. You just have to avoid him, wait for him to go to the top deck and go down in the ship’s hold, where you’ll find The Staff of Storm’s Fury.

Loot it.

Get out of the ship, run away from Abdul if he jumps you.

Right-click the Horn of Kamagua. This will summon a tuskarr to help you kill those pirates.

[71] The Jig is Up, one of the two quests we’ll do in this cave, can be easily soloed by classes who can kite or fear (like mages, warlock, hunter, maybe shadowpriests). It can also be soloed by melee classes with cooldowns/pots, depending on your gear and talent spec. It requires you to beat “Mad” Jonah Sterling down to 30% and then to kill Hozzer, a huge bear. They are both elite and hit kinda hard, but they can be slowed and stunned. Jonas can be feared as well, Hozzer is immune to fear though.

If you can’t solo it, try to find help. The rewards for this quest are:

Sailor’s Knotted Charm
First Mate’s Pocket Watch
Strike of the Seas

Don’t forget to loot Jonah Sterling’s Spyglass from Hozzer after you kill it.

If you can’t find help for this quest, just save it for later or abandon it, as you prefer. There’s no follow up so not a big deal.

We still have another quest to do in this cave, and it’s doable even if you can’t kill ”Mad” Jonah Sterling.

Inside the cave, you just have to hug the left wall and you can go past “Mad” Jonah without aggroing him, don’t worry about Hozzer either, he’s sleeping, you can run past him and go to the end of the cave, where you’ll find The Frozen Heart of Isuldof.

Loot it and get out of the cave.

Ride back to Scalawag Point. Turn in [71] The Jig is Up if you did it.

3. Go south to Alanya (36,82). She stands on the docks next to the flying machine. Talk to her and click on the text.

For a quick take off, you can use the space bar.

Fly down and land next to one of those big sacks:

Then use the Grappling Hook ability, this should hook the sack to your flying machine.

Then right-click one of the chapters to combine them together, you’ll get the Book of Runes.

2. Now let’s find Runed Stone Giants. They spawn at various stone circles in Giant’s Run.

Then they take a walk towards the snowy hills to the north, and they despawn there. It’s easiest to wait for them at the line where the snow starts (72,16).

They’re elite and rather tough, but can be kited and stunned. Melee classes will probably have troubles to solo them, so they should try to find help. You really must try hard to finish that quest, because it has several follow ups.

Whenever you kill a Runed Stone Giant, loot it, target its corpse and right-click the Runeseeking Pick.

You can also kill Frosthorn Rams in the area while waiting for a Runed Stone Giant to show up, as you need their meat for another quest.

Now we’re going to solo [71] Demolishing Megalith, a 3-player quest. To do that, we’re going to use that Stone Giant as a pet. Here’s how:

Thanks to the Rune of Command we have from the other quest, we’ll make this stone giant our pet for 5 minutes.

After that, mount up, ride north towards the snowy hills while carefully avoiding any aggro. Go all the way up and at (70,12) you should see a snowy path going northwest (as shown on the map). Take this snowy path and you should find Megalith.

Then, let Megalith hit you once and let your stone giant pet tank for you. Give him time to build some aggro, wait till he’s down to 60% HP or so before you start attacking. With the help of the pet, any class should be able to solo megalith.

==Note== If you fail, you can go get a new stone giant pet and try again, every 5 minutes.

Good luck.

2. Go to the big gate north of here. Enter the building and you should see a bunch of Necrolords trying to awake King Ymiron. Don’t worry, they can’t attack you. Clear the way around that platform and access it from the backdoor. There you should see Queen Angerboda. Kill her. You’ll see a little script involving Arthas.

3. Get out of this building and go west to the rear-west platform (37,8 ).

==Warning== We’re about to attempt to solo an elite frost wyrm. It should be doable for every class with normal gear, provided you use everything you got.

Clear the platform and kill Wyrmcaller Vile last, loot the Wyrmcaller’s Horn.

Right-click it and eat/drink quickly while the frost wyrm flies to you.

Glacion is immune to all forms of CC, you can’t even interrupt his spells. He hits for about 1000 on cloth and sometimes cast a frost breath which does about 800 damage. If you use all your cooldowns and a pot you should be fine. It might not even been needed depending on your class/gear.

Anyway, if you can’t solo this one, try to find a friend. If all fails, just abandon the quest and come back to do it later or at level 80. It has no follow up, so no big deal.

In any case, before you go to the next step, you must have killed 10 Deathless Watchers and 2 Putrid Wights. You know where to find them, on the side platforms. There are two other side platforms southwest of the two we just visited, should you run short on Deathless Watchers.

        Almost 75If anyone has a DK, then you are probably in the same shoes as me. I’m 3/4 ofthe way through this guide, and almost 75. I have to say it is great, It is much easier to get into instances as a DK when you are a higher level. Gosh, being a DK can be tough.

      Missing questI think if you did [72] Travel to Moa’ki Harbor. before in borean tundra you can’t pick it up in this guide again to turn in.
      its at this point in this guide
      2. Ride back to Kamagua, turn in [71] Avenge Iskaal.
      A new quest should be up in the village, get [72] Travel to Moa’ki Harbor.
      only slight error I’ve found so far! great guides Jame keep em coming!

    As always another great guide, and as the launch gets closer and closer I am reading over the guides so i dont have to refer to them as often as step by step. I noticed Where you list the optional instance run you list 2 quests, but you say you can abandon the 3, either we are missing a quest or it should be 2 🙂
    I’ll try and let ya know if I find any more.

      I’m not sure I understandI’m not sure I understand your question.

      My Borean Tundra will take you really close to level 72.

      And then the Howling Fjord guide will take you really close to level 74.

      That’s calculated WITHOUT rested bonus, and WITHOUT instances.

      So the average player will probably ding 74 at the end of my HF and BT guides.

    Great guides Jame. I’veGreat guides Jame. I’ve been following them very carefully and I like how I’m seeing a lot of content I might otherwise miss. However, I’m at the end of this one and only a little over half way through 73. I’m pretty sure I’ve not skipped anything except the optional dungeons.

    One thing I noticed at the end of this one is you say to turn in Of Traitors and Treason to the Gryphon master at Westguard Keep. However, I can’t seem to find where we ever completed the first part of the chain, The Lost Courier (I looked it up on wowhead.com). I couldn’t find it in the BT guide either. Did I miss something somewhere?

      The lost courrier is notThe lost courrier is not necessary to get Of Traitors and Treason.

      Basically when you finish the whole skorn chain, Captain Adams will give you Of Traitors and Treason at the same time as he gives you Dealing With Gjalerbron.

      Unless they’ve changed it I’m pretty sure the lost courrier is not a mandatory pre-req.

        Could it be that CaptainCould it be that Captain Adams might not have given me “Of Traitors and Treason” because I had “The Lost Courier” in my quest log?

        I wanted to be sure that I was caught up with your guide so I went out to Stars Rest and turned in “The Lost Courier” to Courier Lanson (28,56). He then gave me the quest “Of Traitors and Treason” and told me to talk to Palena Silvercloud. Palena is right there in Stars Rest, Dragonblight (29,55). So I turned in “Of Traitors and Treason” to her and she gave me “High Commander Halford Wyrmbane”.

        When I accepted the quest from her, I was authomatically sent on a flight to Wintergarde keep. (Note, I had not been there previously and did not have the flightpoint for there). At that point I was at the exact starting point for your Alliance Dragonblight guide.

            Vice VersaThis questline drove me crazy. No one listed in the guide had the quests. After a little research I discovered that this same line start in boorean too.

            It starts at Private Casey near Deaths Stand.
            He then sends you to Courier Lanson in Stars Rest Dragonblight.
            From there you talk to the Fligthmaster and she sends you to Winterguarde Keep.
            The rest of the line goes as the guide shows.
            Wowhead and Thottbott both show two versions of this quest.

    You can only take 6 grubs now – seems to be enough for the quest. More grubs all around for the later quests

    Also

    “A new quest should be up in the village, get [72] Travel to Moa’ki Harbor.”

    SuggestionFirst off, your guide is the awesome. Secondly, I’d like to make a quick recommendation.

    The quest Of Traitors and Treason is part of a chain, and there are two ways to start the chain. In Moa’ki Harbor, there is a quest called The Lost Courier, and it also starts this chain. If you have The Lost Courier, you cannot get Of Traitors and Treason where your guide says to get it. I would suggest putting something into the guide where the player first goes through Moa’ki to NOT pick up the Lost Courier and waste a bunch of time trying to figure out why they can’t get Of Traitors and Treason like I did.

    Other than that, keep up with the awesome.

    Smileys aren’t always pure win.:D First of all, thanks for all these amazing guides,
    Much respect that you make free guides, of this quality.
    These guides made me able to level twice as fast <3.

    Litle suggestion,
    Smileys are nice, but sometimes they replace coordinates, like :

    3. Get out of this building and go west to the rear-west platform (37,[Smiley]

    3. Go southwest and look for Garwal while being in the Worg Disguise. He patrols between (27,[Smiley] and (26,12) and (28,17). As shown on the map.

    It is very clear tho, with the maps, but well 😛 just wanted to let you know.

    From Belgium With Love.

    Can’t get Fresh Legs.. what did I do wrong?Besides helping out some guildies on dungeon runs I’ve been following your guides pretty much word for word. I can not pick up the quest Fresh Legs. Any suggestions on what I did wrong? Is this quest part of a line or should I not sweat missing it? I’m already two levels ahead (because of the dungeon runs, and hitting some outlands stuff) so missing the exp from one quest is not an issue atm.

    An achievement you can addHi Jame,

    When doing this line:

    4. Follow the trail westwards until you reach the intersection. You should see many Fjord Turkeys at this spot.

    You can also complete an achievement called Friend or Fowl? All you have to do is kill 15 turkeys in 3 minutes. It is really easy and it is nice to get an achievement 😛

    Fjord HawksJust a Tip to make killing the Fjord Hawks easier:

    Make a macro:
    /target Fjord Hawk
    /use Trained Pet Falcon thingie

    Spelling is off obviously as im not online, but this makes killing those flying falcons so much easier. And maybe mention that the three cages are different so if you have them on a hotbar they need to be replaced! Took me a while.

    [71] The Jig is Up – Hozzer is Fear ImmuneJame,

    I’d like to quickly add my sincere thanks to the praise you’re already receiving. I’ve been a devout follower of your work since the pre-TBC days. Phenominal stuff, thank you.

    I’ve just been working through the Fjord this evening and attempted [71] The Jig is Up with the two elites. As your guide states, “Mad” Jonah Sterling is certainly crowd controllable with a Warlock’s fear spell. However, when I had kited him down to the second phase of the encounter, I found that Hozzer was immune to Fear, Death Coil and Howl of Terror. Unless I was making some catastrophic mistake, you might want to ammend that paragraph to avoid implying Hozzer -is- fearable.

    Thanks again,

    Kloopy.

    Greate guide but not the fastest way to level upFirst of all, thanks for the great guide!

    There is one thing, though, I would like to mention – this is not a guide for the fastest possible *leveling*. In fact, this is the guide for the fastest possible getting an achievement I’ve Toured the Fjord. In WOTLK there are many quests which – being fun by itself is a complete waste of time from the fast leveling perspective – an example is the whole falcon chain which can be long, requires you to learn couple of thing and all in all takes more time than many other quests which gives you the same expirience.

    If you are doing all the quests in starting areas you will be lvl80 after Fjord, Tundra, Dragonblight, Hilla and Zul’Drak – with 3 more zones for money gathering. And there are quests in those 3 zones which are much faster to complete than some of those in earlier one.

    So, the guide for fastest possible *leveling* should probably mark as optional or long those quests which just takes long or requires you to fight for few mobs with other players or random.

    For me, though, this guide was just exellent as I like to complete as many quests as possible while leveling.

      I take your point. But II take your point. But I don’t fully agree with it.

      Yes, there are quests which certainly take a long time to complete and aren’t great XP/hour rate because you don’t kill anything while completing them. The falcon quest is a good example of that.

      However, once you know exactly what to do for that quest, you complete it in about 3-4 minutes. And the quest still gives 20K XP.

      20K XP in 4 minutes = 300,000 XP/hour

      It’s pretty decent. Grinding won’t replace that. Sure you could just skip a few quests here and there and focus only on the ones with higher XP/hour rates, but the difference wouldn’t be significant.

      And once you hit level 80, you’d have to go back to do those quests anyway for the achievements, which in the end makes you waste more time than if you had done them while leveling up. And you wouldn’t get extra gold for those quests either, since they’d be grey at level 80.

      But yea, I get your point, I could theoritically make the guide a little faster, however I don’t think people would like that, since we all want extra achievement, gold, rep, lore and fun 🙂

      No, don’t skipNo, don’t skip anything.

      It’s totally normal that you’re ahead, I do my guides with zero rested xp and with no instancing. So everyone WILL be ahead of my recommended level, or worst case, exactly the same.

      Skipping won’t help you at all, you won’t level faster, all the opposite. Green quests are better exp than yellow quest, because they give just as much XP as the yellow ones, but are much easier and faster to complete.

      Short summary: Don’t skip anything. Being ahead in levels is normal, and is great.

    Jame, I’m finding this a bit buggy – on 1 alt it worked fine. On the other 2 it’s been buggy, frequently the conversation does not start. Things I’ve done to get it to start are cancel and reapply the buff, then walk away from the couple to the door. That seems to prompt them to start talking.

    had problems with [72] March of the Giants, As a Deathknight I actually had trouble soloing the quest being a Blood spec with not the best kiting abilities. So What I did was waited on the quest to I had gotten the quest [71] The Rune of Command and was able to get the Giant Guardian. Then I was able to solo the quest with the help of the Giant Guardian. I did a combination of Icy Touch, and Death Coil. Also did some melee into I got the Debuff then I kited some more. I would recommend maybe moving this Elite quest down to the point where you get the [71] The Rune of Command quest.

    Runed stone giantHi great guide ofcourse!
    “2. Now let’s find Runed Stone Giants. They spawn at various stone circles in Giant’s Run.

    Then they take a walk towards the snowy hills to the north, and they despawn there. It’s easiest to wait for them at the line where the snow starts (72,16).

    They’re elite and rather tough, but can be kited, feared, stunned. Melee classes will probably have troubles to solo them, so they should try to find help. You really must try hard to finish that quest, because it has several follow ups.

    Whenever you kill a Runed Stone Giant, loot it, target its corpse and right-click the Runeseeking Pick.”

    A few comments about this. Someone might allready have pointed this out, i did not read all the comments just page 1 and 2:)

    1. They are immune to fear atleast all that i tryed.
    But they can be kited by a disc priest.

    2. Read this tip on killing them somewhere. Just put a few DoTs or build aggro on them and run to fort Vildevar, the guards will kill them for you.

    Note: My runeseeking pick did not work on 2 out of 6 of these killed. May have been a bug for just me but worth knowing so you dont give up right away as i almost did:P

    Same thing for those bats that you scare the guano out of, alot of them did not crap and some even evaded and just hung in the tree, but just keep scaring them.

    Rune Stone Giants & Inner TurmoilFirst off massive thanks. I’ve leveled a number of toons to 70 pre Wrath without using your guides, although I was aware of them. Rolling my DK I decided to give them a shot and I’m very impressed both by the speed and ease of questing. So thankyou 🙂

    Just 2 small points, and I apologise now if they’ve been mentioned, as I haven’t read all the comments.

    1. On the Rune Stoned Giants quest, the quest is bugged. You can only mine them if you kill them on the snow, not further south on the grass. I had this confirmed by a GM. Don’t know if you want to make a not of it, but after killing 10 -15 of the buggers I pretty much proved the point 🙂

    2. On the Inner Turmoil quest when you ride up the mountain, click the altar and then levitate back down, you may want to make it more clear that you have to wait for the Inner Turmiol mob to spawn and be killed before jumping off the mountain… Otherwise impatient nub-tards like myself, will click the altar and then base jump… a death knight pizza at the bottom of the mountain doesnt complete the quest lol

    Still big thanks for the work much appreciated 🙂

    If you have trouble doing the “March of The Giants” quest, you can pickup the Quest “The Rune Command”.

    This quest gives you control of an Enthralled Giant (Lvl 70 non-elite) that can help you tank the Runed Stone Giants… however, the Enthralled Giant vanishes after a short period of time, so be quick.

    I think that with good pots of mana/health to minimze the recharge, you can safely get 2 Runed Stone Giants, providing you get close spawns on the Runed Stone Giants 🙂

    Awesome guide 😀

    NiceAll I want to say is thank you for spending this much time and effort on such a great guide. Trust me people this will make the most of your time, weather its a little or a lot. I used some similar tricks when leveling alts in BC from memory of grouping quests and such. Makes xp fly out the you know what.

    Only thing I will mention is if you get the Turkey achievement, it will make neutral mobs such as shoveltusk calves attack you and also makes [71] The Enigmatic Frost Nymphs not work. You won’t be able to talk to Surielle. I talked to a GM about this and confirmed it. Seems Peta lovers aka Cenarion Circle don’t like you killing turkeys for a achievement. Simply logout and this will fix it. Other then that, a awesome guide which I will continually use on alts.

    Looking forward to using the DragonBlight guide.

    Just a minor typo.Since you seem to be striving for Perfection, I assume you’d like me to point out any of these I see.

    1. Go northwest and find the way up a plateau at (29,61), then cross the bridge east to the next plateau. On that plateau you should find a Dirt Mound.

    Get full HP/mana before you right-click it, cause you’ll get attacked by 3 ghost pirates when you do.

    When ready, righ-click the Dirt Mound, kill Black Conrad’s Ghost and loot Black Conrad’s Treasure.

    [71] The Jig is Up, one of[71] The Jig is Up, one of the two quests we’ll do in this cave, can be easily soloed by classes who can kite or fear (like mages, warlock, hunter, maybe shadowpriests). It can also be soloed by melee classes with cooldowns/pots, depending on your gear and talent spec. It requires you to beat “Mad” Jonah Sterling down to 30% and then to kill Hozzer, a huge bear. They are both elite and hit kinda hard, but they can be slowed and stunned. Jonas can be feared as well, Hozzer is immune to fear though.

    As shadow priest you dont need to fear or kite either of them. Just dot and full dps. Dont even need to use sheild. There is a usefull trick to hozzer. If you stand on the shoot above him and shoot him he runs to tunel to get you once he gets at max range jump down so he has to run all the way back towards you. Did 15k damage without him even touching me. Im sure a class with slow could do even more.

      Fresh Legs is a quest which leads you to the dwarf at the entrance of Utgarde, and it’s not available if you already have the Utgarde quests.

    March of Giants QuestGot this from a comment on Wowhead. it really helped me in finishing this quest. I was quickly very frustrated before that, since the area isn’t exactly populated anymore, this far after release.

    The Dark Rune is very deadly and going into melee with these mobs is very unhealty. Here is a guide for every class of how to solo them.

    – Death Knight: Kite them with Chains of Ice > Icy Touch > Blood Boil > Blood Boil > Death Coil. Repeat.
    – Druid: Root them and nuke them.
    – Hunter: Kite them.
    – Mage: Kite them and/or spell steal the Dark Fist buff and melee them for heavy damage 🙂
    – Paladin: You can remove the DoT on yourself.
    – Priest: You can remove the DoT on yourself and the buff on the giant.
    – Rogue: Stun lock them. Cloak of Shadow if you get the DoT on you. Evasion to prevent to get hit.
    – Shaman: Frost Shock kite them and/or purge the buff on the giant.
    – Warlock: Felhunter out and eat the buff on the giant. You cant drain their hp and they are immune to fear.
    – Warrior: Equip a shield and Shield Slam them to remove the buff. You can also spell reflect the DoT.

    Just my two centsHi James, I have to say, you guide is friggin awesome!.
    Here’s a few things I think would help this guide.
    In the part where you said “2. Ride a long way south and slightly southwest until you find a canopy at (71,29). Under the canopy you should find the Iron Rune Carving Tools.” There are 2 other spawn points for the tools, they are all under the three canopies in this area. You might want to put that in there. I found out the hard way when I sat at the coords you gave for half an hour before going to wowhead and finding out there’s more spawn points lol.
    Also, for the Quest “March of the Giants”, it’s really impossible to do. What I would suggest is to continue the Other Quest Chain that lets you control a Mountain Giant, the “Rune of Command” Quest, bring a Giant to Megalith, kill him, and then use the pick to mine him. (Yes I tested it, it works). Wait for it to respawn and repeat for 3 more times to get the “March of The Giants” quest completed. (You might have to go grab another giant after the second kill as it will soon expire. Then you can continue as normal, and then later come back with another Giant to do “Demolishing Megalith”. This method is way easier than the Dark Runed filled Terror Runed Giants you have to kill the normal way. 😀

    As you approach, you are “struck down’ and then suspended in the air inside a “bubble”. Arthas then speaks to you.

    During this part of the guide I was getting frustrated. I could not run away from the 2nd hawk fast enough and ended up having to kill it. So I attempted the process on the Fjord hawks flying in the air. It does work, and it does trigger another one to fly down and attack you as well, but your not limited to just 4 or 5 pairs sitting on stones.

    Turn in [72] Of Traitors and Treason, get the follow up [72] High Commander Halford Wyrmbane.

    This will fly you to Wintergarde Keep in Dragonblight.

    doing skorn earlierIf I might make a suggestion. Right before you go to Wildervar for the first time, you ride right by Skorn. Further, you already should have the item that calls forth the seargeant to give you all the quests for skorn.

    What I found was that by doing the Skorn quests early, I was able to turn them all in before heading up to the bat guano quest/wolf quests. This means that I am now on the Gjalerbron quests when I’m doing the bat guano. And conveniently, there are gjal mobs webwrapped below the trees. This allowed me to get some of those kills out of the way before actually needing to go up to gjalerbron.

    Food for thought.

    Found a glitch!Hello this is my first comment on your website, just wanted to say how awesome your guides are! I’ve been using them for about a month and I would not give them up for anything! Thanks very much to Jame and everyone else who contributes on this website for making it possible!

    Now about the glitch:

    When doing – 71 Scare the Guano Out of Them! – in Rivenwood I found a spot where you can get all your guano without having to kill any bats! I know this is a bug etc but it makes it faster to finish this quest which I found pretty annoying anyway 😛 So you have to stand exactly at 30.4 20.1 and face the tree to the north then use Feknut’s Firecrackers right in front of you, making sure that more than half of the green targeting circle is within the tree trunk or else it wont work; the bats will come but will get stuck and start evading your attacks, so just stand right out of range and collect the guano, repeat x15.

    A couple of quick corrections to this guide that I noticed whilst using it – first, the quest is called ‘Rescuing the Rescuers’ whereas your guide refers to ‘Rescuiing’ with two ‘i’s. Secondly, there’s a random extra sentence:
    ‘about 150 yards east to a last pit, look for a Cannonball (62,80)’ when talking about Windan’s Clue.

    Shoveltusk meatGreat guide.

    Slight recently implemented change: Shoveltusk Meat is now a quest item.

    This means that you cannot grind Shoveltusk Meat while you are looking for “Pristine Shoveltusk Hide”.

    Instead – the effecient way is to pick up the “[71] Shoveltusk Soup Again?” quest right before you pick up “[71] One Size Does Not Fit All”.

    While doing “[71] One Size Does Not Fit All” there is plenty of shoveltusks around for you to kill for “[71] Shoveltusk Soup Again?”.

    (Turning in can be done at the same time – the note about “already having it” should probably be deleted though)

    Keep up the good work!

    More March of the GiantsThis may take bit more time, but it was so much easier.

    I got quickly owned with a 74 feral druid while fighting the runed giants… a bit of research recommended that I go up to 68,11 and kill Megalith instead. Super easy to solo, and you can use the Rune-seeking Pick on him! Yeah, you’ll be up there again later in the quest chain, but for me, waiting for him to respawn and killing him repeatedly was much faster. Just watch out for the knockback.

    I love the guides, btw. I’m just amazed at how quickly I’m soloing my way through the levels.

    Getting back on the ship“Wait for the ship to engage Sorlof and when it does, right-click The Big Gun repeatedly until Sorlof dies. Jump off the ship and loot Sorlof’s Booty.”

    It’s kinda annoying to have to wait on this ship each time to turn this single quest in, even though you’ve given us a good point to come back to it.

    However, the ship seems to be a lot less solid than it looks and so far I’ve managed to get back on as follows:

    1. Druid – jumping through the side of the lower floor onto the ghoul deck, after being in aquatic form. This might work with all classes if you catch the ship when it’s not moving.
    2. Death Knight and Shammy – jumping through the ghoul floor windows while riding on water.

    Might be something to investigate for anyone so inclined.

    Thanks for the great guide, again JameAs usual I keep being a very slow lvler, but with this guide I lvl a lot faster though. What I find you have the most benefit of, is all the videos of the impossible jumps and shortcuts. Also the fact that everything is so clear in this guide makes this awesome. Im going to end up with one bar away from lvl 76 I think. Started at lvl 70, with 150% rested exp, and did quite some dungeons. This will make me a huge amount of money at lvl 80, as I will complete all the other quests in northrend which I havent done yet. I hope to hit 80, somewhere in grizzly hills. And also the soloing of the group quests by making use of other quest (items) you have is very nice. Saved me loads of deaths and time.

      Resto really isn’t meant forResto really isn’t meant for solo questing imo. My friend’s resto druid can’t go too far from my shaman or he’s in trouble.

      I think I would go through and do the quests you can and just get your dps/tank gear as rewards or have a friend go with you to a few of the instances that you can 2 man (depending on the pair of players how far back that would have to be) and get your gear. As a feral druid, you kill rather quickly. (Well mine does with 4 pvp epics, but she did quite well in greens and blues too.) I tend to be able to kill elites at least 2 levels higher than myself without trouble, typically solo.

        I would argue that restoI would argue that resto druids can solo just fine, having leveled one from 60-80 resto. They can be slow, but you very seldom die (I could also take on elites often because I could keep myself healed with HoTs.).

        If you enjoy healing, I would recommend sticking with either resto or balance specs. This way, you really only need one set of gear until end game (when you start needing to worry about regen as a tree or crit as a boomkin). It will also be a lot easier once duel-spec arrives to be boomkin most of the time and swap to resto for instances, again because you’ll only have one gear set while leveling. Just my opinion though.

    Fjord HawksI don’t know if they changed something since you wrote the guide, but I found that running away from the second Fjord Hawk after you kill the first with your Trained Rock Falcon, pretty much isn’t an option, the second one seemed to pursue me relentlessly, much further than it should have. I tested this by having a Shoveltusk Stag attack me while the second Hawk was attacking, I kept backing up not attacking and the Shoveltusk would lose interest, but the Hawk just kept coming.

    Ure awesome :))“Beat down a Chill Nymph below 30% health then use Lurielle’s Pendant. Repeat 7 times.”

    this is probably a bug that will be fixed in the next patch, but as of 3.0.8 you dont have to actually weaken them. i used the pendant without even engaging and they became friendly and got the credit for the quest.

    maybe you should test it, or ask someone to test it when a new patch comes. 🙂

    also, when u have to use the falcon to get some hawks, or something like that, i found someone that was also on the quest and we worked together. id capture one,he’d capture the other from the same couple.

      That’s because you alreadyThat’s because you already accepted the next quests in the chain. I assume you went to Utgarde Keep and picked up the quests from the dwarf at the entrance.

      Just ignore this quest, it’s very little XP and it’s only there to guide you to the instance.

    This location seems to get farmed or it’s popular for questing, either way almost no-one kills the numerous murlocs….which it could be mentioned also drop the scourge device and count for scourge kills.

      Thanks… but any idea why is this area is so heavily farmed?After questing through Borean Hills and Howling Fjord without running in to too many people, I was totally surprised to find 3-4 other low 70s down along the coast fighting for spawns. Is it a known spot for farmers? Why? The mobs did not see any easier or loaded with better loot than anywhere else.

    Chill NymphQuote Jame’s Alliance Leveling Guide “Beat down a Chill Nymph below 30% health then use Lurielle’s Pendant. Repeat 7 times.”

    This is not needed. I am able to just use Lurielle’s Pendant on the a Chill Nymph without bringing their HP down to 30% or less. Cast it at them, without first attacking at all even.

    A few observationsHi all!

    Jame, this is an amazing work, grats!
    One thing tho: It would be really handy if you made those colored quests/npcs/items links to a wowhead (or thottbott) page.

    A few things for you guys, questers:

    With a paladin, never use consecration on the boat where you need to kill the sea dogs!
    When the boat starts to move, the consecrated area doesn’t, so you can pull the whole lower deck in 5 seconds, and beleive me, on lvl 72-73 it’s nasty. 😀

    Don’t talk to ‘Lou the Cabin Boy’ while you are under water, because he will start to ferry you to Scalwag Point and the breath bar won’t disappear. I don’t know how much time it takes, because I quickly logged off and on again, and it solved the problem. 🙂

    Cheers

    Friendly ReminderJame,

    Loving the guide!!!! I cheated and went to Northrend early. As a result i couldn’t do the DHETA quests in the Borean Tundra guide, so I started on this one instead. When I hit 70 went back and finished B.T. and I’m almost done with H.F. and I am at 74 (Some rested XP).

    At any rate I would like to suggest a reminder to be added to the guide at the Vrykul Harpoon Gun section. I had my distance effects too low and didnt see the buildings. It took me almost a half an hour of running around, looking for other harpoons, to finally convince myself I was in the right place. A guild mate who had recently finished the section said the buildings were there, and he completed no problems at all. Finally he suggested about turning up my distance effects, and sure enough, there were the buildings. A quick reminder or note about this at this section I believe would be helpful for new players (well newish players at that level).

    Keep up the great work and looking forward to the last two guides, when you get the chance.

    Rotgill AreaI thought I saw this before, but I read through the comments and didn’t see it.

    You have us kill Rotgill, walk back to turn that in and then walk right back to turn in the 2 quest to Jaren and then hearth. It would be quicker to kill Rotgill, turn in the 2 quests to Jaren, then walk back and turn in Trident of the Son and hearth from there.

    Just a suggestion…..

    Minor error, but STILL a great guide!Jame-

    First off I’d like to say thanks for the guide! You helped me get from 30-70 in like a month, and considering I work 6 days a week.. thats one hell of an accomplishment!

    Now on to business, I believe you quoted as saying:
    Turn in [70] Zedd’s Probably Dead, get [70] And Then There Were Two…

    Go in the cave just south of Zedd, at the end of it you should find the Dragonflayer Battle Plans.

    The issue is in the 2nd part. The cave is actually WEST of Zedd at that part (was a bit confusing for the first 2 or so minutes until I realized the error). Aside from that, I couldn’t have been happier that I stumbled across this here guide. Keep up the great work!

    March of the Giants – Rune of CommandAwesome Guide! Thank you. 🙂

    For those having trouble killing Runed Stone Giants for March of the Giants (I did), another option is to follow the [71] The Book of Runes, [71] Mastering the Runes, and [71] The Rune of Command. Once you have the Rune of Command, use the Enthralled Stone Giants to help you kill/tank the Runed Stone Giants for you — then continue with [72] The Lodestone and [71] Demolishing Megalith.

    Apologies if this has already been referenced.

    Thanks again James for ALL your efforts here.

    Dive in the water, look for Water Plants.

    Right-click the plant and a Forsaken Spy, a Caldemere Snapper, or a Northern Barbfish to spawn. What you want to spawn is the northern barbfish. In any case, keep opening plants and killing what spawns until you have 7 Northern Barbfish.

    This quest was made easier in a earlier patch… You only need 5 Northern Barbfish

    Clear the way around that platform and access it from the backdoor. There you should see Queen Angerboda. Kill her.
    its not necessary to clear around to the back there’s a glitch where you can jump into the corner where the pillar meets the platform the queen is standing on. you will have to jump one or two more times before getting on the platform but once there you will agro the queen

    Small NoteHeya,
    Firstly let me congratulate you Jame on these brilliant guides, they have helped me so much playing the game and I’m pretty sure I would have given up a long time ago without them. However, I just wanted to make a recomendation for a small note. I did the quest “[71] Into Utgarde!” because someone shared it with me while I was doing Utgarde Keep and so when I got to “[71] Fresh Legs” I could not get it because, and I only found this out after checking online, it’s a pre-quest to the afore mention quest.
    Anyway, once again, thanks Jame for all you have put into helping others with this game.

    Addition…Jame,

    First of all, love your guides. Just got back into playing Wow again, and using it to level my priest from 70 to 80 and my newly acquired death knight. A comment on the quest [71] It Goes to 11… at some point I lowered settings on my computer, my laptop was freaking out. Anyway, when i got to this quest and went to the harpoon gun, I noticed I couldn’t see the buildings you were describing. The funny thing was there was another priest there at the same time, having the same problems. I’d note to your users that they should go into their user interface, video options, under the effects tab and make sure their distance is high even to see the buildings you are describing. Definitely would have saved me a phone call to my “computer guy” husband.

    Thanks muchly!

    Solof’s Booty seems bugged right nowThe Solof’s Booty quest seems to have been bugged for the last two months (according to Thottbot, anyway)- the giant isn’t visible from the boat. I even had a teammate on the shore, seeing the giant, and /assisting showed the error message “Unknown Unit”. Setting view distance to max didn’t help. If there’s a workaround that you know about, can you include it in the guide? If not, can you put a note in that the quest may be bugged and should be skipped if the giant doesn’t appear? Since you have to wait for the boat to get the quest and ride it around, it took a long time to troubleshoot- Apart from that, awesome guide- thanks for all your hard work!

    Tough ram meat will only drop while doing questComment on the following paragraph: “You can also kill Frosthorn Rams in the area while waiting for a Runed Stone Giant to show up, as you need their meat for another quest.

    Once you have 4 Runed Stone Giant Corpse Analyzed and 4 Tough Ram Meat, move on to the next step.”

    I learned the hard way that this is incorrect. The tough ram meat is a quest item, and will not drop unless you have the quest “The Yeti Next Door”. I recommend just putting in that you should pick it up while you collect the four other quests in the town.

    Apart from that, brilliant guide as always. Been using it from level 30 on my now 74 hunter, and have been using the guides for several years now, on numerous characters.

    Blizzard aware of a bugI wanted to make someone aware of a bug that Blizzard is aware of for the quest [72] The Slumbering King. I was following the guide, right clicked Mezhen’s Writings and accepted the quest. I went up to kill the queen and she wasn’t there. After killing the mobs in the surrounding area 3 times, I submitted a ticket. After waiting 2 hrs and completing the other quests in the area I was told by message and in game email that they are aware of the bug (ongoing) and currently working to fix it. I thought maybe you could include a note stating there is a known bug and if the queen isn’t there…don’t wait for her or something of that nature.
