Twilight Highlands starting quests

i originally intended this to be used for my dualboxing alts but i guess it works just as well if you solo these quests

Assumes your toon is L84 or higher. if lower, you cant get the starting quest which means even if you fly over TH you wont be able to do any quests or see any of the TH vendors.

howling fjord ka’luak quests

there is a bunch of ka’luak quests that start from outside westguard keep and end with 2 nice blue trinkets that’s very level appropriate. hence if you dont have BoA trinkets, this is a good chain to get into.

since this is at westguard, the game play assumes you would already have levelled once or twice before getting here, and should be at least L70.

pick up the first quest from the npc, lunk-tusk, who is just outside westguard keep. it will lead you to kamagua, the ka’luak island just off the coast and a hop away from westguard keep. after that, it will lead you to a series of quests for scalawag point, the next island.

by the end of the quests, you should be richer by 2 blue trinkets:

  1. The Jig is Up (group of 2 but can solo)
  2. Return to Atuik (the end of the the end of the quests for Ka’luak in HF)

after this, you should move on to Dragonblight, since you should have picked up a quest to go to Moa’ki Harbor. and you should go there, since the quest will reward you with a nice green item just for getting there.

as you already have cold weather flying, you can either fly there or wait for turtle boat.

northrend again

finally got an alt high enuf to revisit northrend, i first landed incorrigible, my L68 prot pally in BT (Borean Tundra). well, i did that cos he was based in Stormwind (SW) and they have a boat to BT.

big mistake. that was never my fave starter zone for levelling in northrend. just couldnt get the enthusiasm up. after paying for northrend cold weather flying and then checking out a few FPs and doing some starter quests in the vicinity of the alliance base, i flew east to valgarde in HF (Howling Fjord).

some funny happened along the way. i flew across northrend, then down to HF. as i was approaching HF, i got distracted and then left him to continue to fly off the radar. by the time i got back, he was in serious difficulties and couldnt fly back to safety. died from flying fatigue! ROFL! he rezzed somewhere in Westfall! dunno if that is a bug or what! anyway, i hearthed him back to SW and then flew him to Ironforge (IF) and set his base there. then i flew him over to Menethil Harbor and took the other boat to northrend, the one that stops at Valgarde, HF.

HF is where it’s at, boys! did the starter quests, then flew over to the HF Utgarde Keep (UK) instance, and picked up the 2 quests from the NPC outside it.  i had hit L69 shortly before, so i queued for LFG and see what i would get. yup, almost immediately, i got a LFG for tanking UK!

i was kinda distracted, and so was the healer, but we made it to the first boss and actually didnt wipe a few times along the way. even though we didnt follow strat on the first boss (stack so that consec etc will break ice tomb and oso keep the adds away from the healer)

however, the first mob up the stairs wiped us. how? i have no idea, but wipe we did. after that, a dps left and a rogue popped in. good thing, cos he helped sap for the next 4-man mob on the stairs. i probably didnt have enough gear for northrend dungeon cos i had just popped into the first dungeon without northrend gear although i had quite a bit of BoA stuff. we didnt wipe after that, and went on to clear the end boss with EASE (although i think 1 guy died. how? i have no idea, since i was doing the correct tanking style for the end boss – dont move, take the dmg from the phase 1 smash and the harder phase 2 dark smash) when tank dont move, melee dps wont run the risk of getting hit by the boss, but i think the flying axe done him in. i had to move when the flying axe got too close. twice.

and after turning the quests for the run as well as some additional utgarde catacombs, incorrigible dinged L70! and now has some northrend gear too. so next time can try the other instance in BT – Nexus.

now to rest him for a bit while i get the others to play catch up.

important update 8th april 2011:

ok. i found out the hard way. took Persi (L68 lock) to HF first, only to find out, there is NO FLYING TRAINER IN VALGARDE (HF)

so you should still go to BT first, and get the cold weather flying training, then fly over to HF, or stick with BT to level up. i just prefer HF for now. maybe after 2 toons, i might just do BT cos of the boredom of repetition.

sethekk halls – 2 quests

there are 2 quests for SH which you can pick up outside the SH instance. which means you gotta fly there and talk to the npc before you queue LFG or specifically SH. likewise, after the run, to fly back to the npc to turn in quests for blue item rewards.

if you choose to random LFG, good chance you might end up doing CoT’s Old Hillsbrad (young Thrall) instance instead. and what you really really should be doing is SH cos of the 2 quest rewards!

1) Brother against brother

Kill instance 1st boss and free Lakka in a cage.

Reward is a blue neck item.

2) Terokk’s Legacy

Pick up 3 items:

  • Mask is looted off the 1st boss
  • pick up Saga from the floor in the room just before end boss
  • Quill is looted off the end boss

Reward is a blue item, either the Mask (dps leather head), Saga (castor off-hand) or Quill (2h polearm)

auchenai crypts – chain quest

before you start to queue for crypts, you should do the chain quest that leads to a final quest to kill the end boss in crypts.

warning: this is not a easy chain. but nowadays, should be able to be soloed, if you use your cds carefully. if not, wait a level or two. if still cant give it up, its not worth the hassle. but so far, i have done it successfully on both plate and cloth toons at the appropriate level.

  1. I See Dead Draenei – just fly down to auchindon, take the quest from npc just outside the crypts instance.
  2. Ezekiel – this guy is in Shattrah City. talk and done.
  3. What Book? I Don’t See Any Book. – this might be a bit of a messy fight. since it is 3 vs 1. and they are melee intensive. use your cds if you are clothie. plate wearers have no problems with these guys. on my L64 shadow priest, i had to use fear and psychic horror, shield and renew while dotting and dpsing them down. on my L64 pally, i just put on tank gear and aoe dmg them, and use the holy word to self heal every so often.
  4. The Master’s Grand Design? – fly to nagrand to find npc in the abandoned armory.
  5. Vision of the Dead – pain in the ass quest, fly all over nagrand and kill stuff for the 3 drops you gotta get. i did this around L66. after finishing most of the nesingwary quests (left the 3 bosses and the end boss quests)
  6. Levixus the Soul Caller – boss on top part of the auch ring. if you can do 5, you can do 6.
  7. Everything Will Be Alright. since you are in a party for the crypts instance, killing end boss is a piece of cake.

lots of xp, and nice loot. worth the effort.

5th April 2011 update:

correction. not all the group quests can be soloed by every class.

i tried the book quest on my L64 rogue – he had to vanish. evasion just not long enough to keep the damage off.

as for levixus, that is even tougher. L67 mage and shadow priest cannot kill him individually. but together, yes. hence, group for this boss fight.
