This guide covers the worgen starter zone. As such it is of use for Alliance players only.
Please be aware that this guide is currently based on Cataclysm beta, but it should be fairly accurate when the servers come online on 07 December. As you all know, Cataclysm beta has ended, so the guide remains as-is until the launch of Cataclysm. As soon as the expansion hits the live servers I’m going to level a fresh worgen using this guide to double-check everything again.
I’m trying to explain where everything is in the guide, but most of the objective locations are quite straightforward. If you still get stuck somewhere, try using the built-in quest tracking on the world map, it’s absolutely awesome, it shows exactly where you need to go.
Thanks to Bitsem, coordinates for important locations and NPCs are now included in the guide through level 11 (more coords to come soon [TM]).
Anyway without any more wall of text, let’s go on with the actual guide. 🙂
Please post any feedback, errors, or suggestions as comments.
- Quest objectives to kill
After creating your brand new worgen, you’ll find yourself as an ordinary human citizen in Gilneas City, currently under siege by worgen forces. Your first few levels will take place in an instanced area, similar to the Death Knight starting area.
1. Get the quest  Lockdown! from Prince Liam Greymane (59.1,24.0)) right in front of you.

-  Evacuate the Merchant Square
4. Go a few steps south and get the quest  Salvage the Supplies from Gwen Armstead (59.6,27.0). It’s worth noting that there’s a mailbox in the middle of the square, so if you have a BoA item sent from a main character or an account-wide pet, this might be a perfect time to retrieve them.
5. Continue south down the street and start killing Rampaging Worgens. They are all over the place fighting with the city guards. While killing look for Supply Crates near the buildings and collect them.
