levelling in outlands (Terokkar/Nagrand)

now that you are L64, it’s time to visit Auchindon (Terokkar Forest) and Nagrand. by the time you are done with these 2 places, you would have moved on to the next xpac zones, Northrend! (L68 and higher)

questing:

Nagrand will give you enough quests. i like to do ALL the Nesingwary quests (the meats can be used to level cooking skill) in Nagrand, as well as some starter quests from Telaar (if nothing else, just to get the cooking recipes) and the Consortium guys (esp. nice for JCers)

also, if you run instances, pick up the quests that are at Auchindon, just outside the instances. you need to be at the appropriate level in order to get the quests. so start with the Mana Tomb quests.

instancing:

  • Mana Tombs – L64
  • Crypts – L65
  • Sethekk Halls – L67
  • Old Hillsbrad – L67  (not in Auch but CoT, but if you use LFG you will get this randomly)

oh, pick up the FP for Telaar/Nagrand and Allerian Stronghold/Terokkar Forest. and if you get some spirit shards while killing bosses in Auchindon instances when the PVP buff is on the Alliance side, they can be traded for some nice stuff at the stronghold.

levelling in outlands (Zangarmarsh)

skip the rest of the Hellfire quests when you get to 61-62 and just fly over to Zangar. here there are a bunch of easy quests for Exodar (Teredor), Cenarion Expedition and Sporeggar. there are also 2 instances under the Coilfang Reservoir – Slave Pens and Underbog

you should get rep with Sporeggar, so that when you are friendly and L63, you can pick up the 2 Underbog instance quests that give pretty nice stuff:

  • Oh, It’s On! (kill the 1st boss and pick up the underspore frond from a leafless tree – reward is an item that makes a food+water item good enough for outlands)
  • Stalk the Stalker (kill the end boss and loot boss brain – reward is either a trinket that returns mana or health on a kill that gives honor/xp)

In addition, while in Underbog, you can pick up sanguine hibiscus from some of the mobs or just pick them off the ground (like herbing but dont need herb skill). that is for a repeatable Sporeggar quest for rep gain:  Bring me a/another shrubbery

Do the simple quests for Cenarion and Exodar. those that require you to collect 10+ items from mobs, skip them unless you are herbalist/skinner prof. in general, i skip all Naga related quests cos it’s just a waste of time and there are easier quests to do, since i just focus on levelling and not faction rep.

once you are halfway to L63, skip the rest of the quests and start on Sporeggar rep. fly to the Spawning Glen (SW Zangar) and look for the npc, Fasshn, just East of the glen. pick up both his quests and do them (both can be completed repeatedly in the glen) until you get to Friendly. then he will give you a quest to go to Sporeggar. along the way, pick up at least 10 glowcaps (Sporeggar currency and quest item). after you get to Sporeggar and turn in some of the simple quests, you should hit L63 and be able to get the 2 underbog quests.

while waiting for the instance, you can do some more simple quests or collect FPs (Orebor Harborage)

after you have done Slave Pens and Underbog, you should be easily L64 and ready for the next 2 zones, Terrokar Forest (which encompasses Auchindon instances and Shattrah City, a sanctuary) and Nagrand.

midsummer madness

ok that was not me. but my buddy.

so after the usual LFG queue for Ahune, and a short stint to do the weekly raid (razorscale@ulduar) with the guild + pug tanks, Zappel and Naturespower went on a midsummer fire run thru both alliance and horde points.

zappel was basically the portal mage, but u still gotta run to some places that are pretty far off, esp if you didnt have the FP from long ago. we had to run from timbermaw to get to winterspring cos nature didnt have the FP. but once there, it was easy to get to both fires, since they are outside Everlook, near the FPs. luckily, both nature and zappel got enuf rep with timbermaw so its just a short run thru their tunnel.

we still got a lot of ground to cover. but its early days into the festival. and most ppl are so busy getting the fires, they dont even bother each other. so horde and ally and just running from point to point and dont even care about each other’s presence. or maybe that is just my realm, idk.
