"The Fastest Path to 60!"
In this part of the guide we return to the jungles of Stranglethorn Vale. As with our first visit to the jungle, be extremely careful in this zone if you are on a PvP server.
Also similar to the first trip to the zone, we are going to adventure almost exclusively in the top 1/3rd of the zone. Although we will head down to the city of Booty Bay at the southern tip to get the flight point and a few quests.
Click the image to open a separate window to our quest database, where you can find additional information on each quest, larger maps and more.
Travel to Booty Bay to the far south of the zone. The best way to get here is from the boat in Ratchet. Once here make sure you get the flight point located on the balcony on the top floor of the inn.
Grab all the quests you can get and then fly to Grom'gol to the north. While in Grom'gol grab all the quests.
|From Grom'gol travel north west to the hills at 24,17 to collect the "Singing Blue Shards" and then kill the tigers just east of there for "Tiger Mastery".|
While killing the elder tigers above you should have seen the Bloodscalp trolls. Hunt them down to complete "Bloodscalp Ears", "Bloodscalp Insight", "Hunt for Yenniku" and "Bloody Bone Necklaces".
All four quests can be completed around the same area, just below the ridge line north of Grom'gol.
|Travel back south towards Grom'gol to find the Lashtail raptors to complete this step of "Raptor Mastery" and "The Defense of Grom'gol" near 31,22|
|As with your previous trip through Stranglethorn Vale, any and all of the areas where you complete the "hunting" quests are great spots to grind out some experience. The mobs generally go down quickly and are close enough together that you can work from one to the next without stopping. It is even better if you are a skinner as you will get tons of leather and hides from the MOBs.|
|Turn in all your quests in Grom'gol and get "Headhunting", the next part in "The Defense of Grom'gol" and "An Unusual Patron".|
|Travel to the far north west to the troll ruins around 22,9 to complete "Headhunting".|
|Next travel to the island just south of the ruins to the altar at 20,22 for "An Unusual Patron".|
If you have water breathing potions you can finish the "Vile Reef" on your way back east to the mainland.
It is an elite quest an may require assistance depending on your class, so you can skip it if you are solo.
|Once on the mainland, make your way back to Nesingwary's hunting expedition to the north east and turn in all your hunting quests and get the next steps.|
|Go just south to the hill at 31,18 to kill Sin'Dall for the last "Tiger Mastery" quest and then turn it in back at camp.|
|From the hunters camp make your way south east across lake Nazferiti to find the goblin area at 44,20 and complete "Hostile Takeover" and "Goblin Sponsorship" there.|
|Move just east into the hills to find the MOBs for "Panther Mastery" and "Mok'thardin's Enchantment". Return to the hunters expedition to turn in the panther quest and get the next part in the chain.|
|Travel back west across the river and south of Grom'gol to find the MOBs for your current part of "The Defense of Grom'gol".|
|Return to Grom'gol and turn in all your quests there making sure you get "Trollbane", then fly to Booty Bay.|
|Turn in all your quests and get the third part of "Goblin Sponsorship".|
|You are now ready to move on to the Arathi Highlands for a while. make your way there, but on your way stop at the Undercity to get the quest "To Steal From Thieves". Then fly to Hammerfall.|
