Terokkar Forest Leveling Guide
If youre not above level 64 at this point then I suggest hitting the battlegrounds up for some easy experience. You can run back to back Alterac Valley runs and get about a level every 2-3 hours. This takes a little big longer than questing, but provides a means to beef yourself above the quest levels making you take about half the time that youd normally have to spend on them.
There isnt any particular items needed, but a large stack of food/water/bandages can help. Youre nearing the end of the Outland walk so you may want to make sure your tradeskills are getting close to 350/375 if youve been skipping on them.
One special note; if you see a quest turn in then go ahead and turn it in. There will be times when youre picking up quests that youll be able to turn in the previous quests. We dont know when you might finish something early or later, so turn em in when you head back to pick up the follow-ups.
Lets start by entering Terokkar Forest. Its a hop, skip, and quick jaunt through Zangarmarsh to the western road that leads into Terokkar. Your first destination is the Cenarion Thicket which is east of Shattrath City. Here youll pick up the quests Strange Energy, Clues in the Thicket, and Its Watching You from the quest givers near the road. Strange Energy is completed by killing the nearby moths while Clues in the Thicket is completed inside of the inn at (45,21). Its Watching You is on top of the tower at (42,22). Turn em in and get the follow up By Any Means Necessary which wants you to find Emoor.
Empoor wanders the road between Shattrath and the Blood Elf Village (basically the road in front of the Thicket). Youll want to talk to him, fight him (hes easy), and get the quest Wind Trader Lathrai. That was some pretty easy experience, right? Lets keep the easy XP rolling in then.
Now here is where things get confusing. There are four major quest lines in Terokkar. The first line is out of Shattrath which involves a little of everything, the second is Stonebreaker Hold (the Horde city) which involves some nearby Orcs, and the other two are in the Bone Wastes. Each city has quests going all over the place so it can get really confusing really fast. Lets try to take this as slow as possible while still getting the XP to flow in.
Lets first hit up Shattrath City and get the quests Rather Be Finishin, The Eyes of Skettis, The Outcasts Plight, and you can skip anything the Scryers have going for you. There is also a lengthy quest that starts with Adal, but you can honestly skip that unless you want to do the Scryer/Aldor lines. It takes about 9 minutes of following an elemental around and thats not fast or fun.
Head to the lake northeast of Shattrath to complete Rather Be Fishing (the fish are in this lake, cant miss it) and then head to Stonebreaker Hold near (45,45) and pick up all of the quests there except for the daily PvP one (it takes forever to trigger and doesnt give enough XP to worry about it). Get the quests Olemba Seed Oil, Wanted: Bonelasters Dead, Vestments of the Wolf Spirit, Magical Disturbances, The Missing Merchant, Speak with Scout Neftis. These are a lot of quests! Shew. Alright, lets get moving on.
Go south of Shattrath to Veil Reskk and do The Outcasts Plight, Stymieing the Arakkoa, Arakkoa War Path, and The Eyes of Skettis. The two eyes are at (57,23) and (50,19). Then head to the Refugee Caravan at (37,49).Get the quests "Veil Skith: Darkstone of Terrok", "The Dread Relic", "Improper Burial", "Rilak the Redeemed", "Missing Friends", and "The Infested Protectors". The forest walkers are near the base (The Infested Protectors) and the mobs needed for Before Darkness Falls are at (38,60).
Now go to Veil Skith at (30,42) to complete Darkstone of Terrok, Missing Friends, and A Personal Favor. Go to Tuurem at (55,30) to do Investigate Tuurem and What are These Things?. Pretty easy so far right? Well now head east of Tuurem to find a ton of wolves, warp stalkers, and olemba seeds. Youll grind through these three for "Olemba Seed Oil", "Magical Disturbances" and "Vestments of the Wolf Spirit" in no time. Now head to Bonechewer Ruins for An Unwelcome Presence. Its nearby and super easy. Just kill enough orcs and head to (63,42) to turn it in. You can get What Happens in Terokkar Stays in Terokkar and The Firewing Liaison. North at (71,37) youll be at Firewing point. Youve got a good few quests to complete here. Attack on Firewing Point which involves killing a ton of blood elves, turn that in and get The Final Code which involves killing Sharth Voldoun (use the translocation orbs to get to him or just fly up and smack him around) and using the mana bomb in the center, and an easy escort that you can do if you want (I skip it for time).
Return back to the Stonebreaker Camp and turn in The Final Code and then fly right on towards Stonebreaker Camp. Here youll turn in a ton of quests and find yourself ready to go to (39,43) to speak to Scout Neftis. Get Who are They? and walk into the orc town (avoiding the agro mob) with your disguise on and talk to the required NPCs- theyre all around on the inside. Head back and get Kill the Shadow Council! which is an easy go into the town and kill a bunch of stuff quest.
Now lets roll back down to the Bone Wastes. Kill Bonelashers that roam about the Bone Wastes. Head back to the Refugee Caravan and turn in/get any new quests. Do The Shadow Tomb at (30,52). Veil Rhaze: Unliving Evil is at 28,56. Head back to the Caravan and turn in your quests before heading to the Shatar Outpost at (30,75). On the way youll find a few Veil Lithic quests you can do, if you want to finish up all the of the Arrokoa lines. I personally get tired of them quickly.
At the Shatar Outpost you can pick up an escort called Digging Through the Bones which has you escort the dwarves around. Stop there, skip the eilte, and get The Dread Relic and An Improper Burial. Head to (43,76) and loot the chest. When you do youll be surrounded by zombies! Make a dash for it or mount your flying mount and hit the air. You can also AOE them down as theyre weak, but there is a lot of them. Burn the corpses at (35,75) and you should return back to the camp.
Now, you may have a few quests left. If youre level 66 (which you should be) then you can now move on to Nagrand. Nagrand will get you to 68 which lands you the frozen ticket to Northrend where the quests are more organized, the loot is better, and you can start grinding reputation for factions youll need at 80. If youre not 66 then you have a few options. You can finish up whatever quests you have left (we never followed up on the bird people lines), you can move on to Nagrand anyway, you can grind Blood Elves at Firewing Point, or you can run Alterac Valley until youre 66. Either way you should be able to reach that goal soon enough!
