Premier World of Warcraft Zone for Horde Examined
The Barrens is the premier World of Warcraft zone for Horde characters in their teens to quest and gain near-effortless experience. WoW - Ten Ton Hammer's newest beginner guide looks at this region, a favorite of critics and players alike for its solid design. It's all the goodness you expect from a Ten Ton Hammer region guide, with background, a walkthrough and a detailed map, quest details, harvesting tips, and advice on where to adventure next!
"Aside from adventure opportunities, you'll find yourself travelling through the Barrens long past when you can benefit from hunting there. The Crossroads, in the center of the Barrens, is Azeroth's LAX, though after patch 1.10 you may not touch at the Crossroads en-route to your destination, more Horde flights originate here than from any other Horde flight master. Ratchet, to the east of the Crossroads, is a neutral port for ships bound for Booty Bay. The Barrens also borders such frequently travelled zones as starting zones of Durotar and Mulgore, step-up zones like Ashenvale Forest, Stonetalon Mountains, and Thousand Needles, and the level 35-45 zone of Dustwallow Marsh."
