"The Fastest Path to 60!"
In this part of the Guide we travel to the Badlands. While the zone appears barren at first, the uninviting rocky desert area is really loaded with MOBs of all types. The zone provides many things to do that will keep you busy for a while.
You should be 40 upon entering the zone, and with very little grinding, be able to leave at the zone at 41. Don't worry, you'll be back later for the Uldaman instance here.

The hardest part of this whole section is actually getting to the zone to begin with! Be prepared for a long journey.
The best way that I have found to get there is to start from Hammerfall and head south through the wetlands, then Loch Modan and finally into the Badlands. If you do not have your mount yet, this could be a 20 minute run so be prepared.
Also, be warned that Loch Modan is an Alliance controlled zone, so if your on a PvP server you could have some issues.
Travel to almost the exact center of the zone (44,53) to turn in "Martek the Exiled" and to get "Barbecued Buzzard Wings".
Your goal in this zone is to hit 41 and the best way to do that is to kill everything in your path as you move from one quest to the next.
|Head to the far west of the zone to find Kargath. Make sure you get the flightpath there and the following quests: "Coyote Thieves", "Broken Alliances", "Badlands Reagent Run", "Report to Helgrum" and "Unclaimed Baggage".|
|Travel back east towards 17,57 to complete "Barbecued Buzzard Wings".|
|In the same general area you can complete "Coyote Thieves" around 32,63 and "Badlands Reagent Run" near 31,75.|
|Move to the south to 62,72 for "Broken Alliances".|
|Move to the Angor Gortress to the north east near 42,30 for "Unclaimed Baggage". You can find the rapier on the weapon rack to the right of the entrance and the pack on the barrel to the left of the entrance.|
|Start traveling back towards Kargath, but stop at 24,43 along the way to get and complete "Study of the Elements: Rock". Turn in in for the second part, complete it just slightly farther west, then turn it in for the third part (all of the same name), then continue on to Kargath.|
|Turn in all your quests in Kargath and then head south to 13,82 to complete the last part of "Study of the Elements: Rock". Return north to turn it in.|
The area full of coyotes and ogres is an excellent grinding spot as is the Lethlor Ravine to the far east of the zone. Both will help you reach level 41 quickly if you haven't already.
|Once you have hit level 41 return to Grom'Gol in Strangelvale and get ready for another run to a distant area, the Swamp of Sorrows.|
