The Northern Barrens is one of the two zones on the continent
of  Kalimdor that players can use to achieve level 20. Only
recently has the Northern Barrens sprung into existence. Before the
return of Deathwing the Northern Barrens and Southern Barrens were
combined to make one giant mega zone that was the birth place of the
infamous Barrens chat. When the Cataclysm struck the zone was torn
asunder with a huge lava river springing up from the earth and forever
separating the Northern and Southern Barrens.



Shortly following the Cataclysm the giant lava river seemed like a mere
nuisence when the once totally Horde zone was invaded by Alliance
forces. Camp Taurajo has been burnt to the ground and the zone is now
considered to be “contested”.  On a
brighter note the seemingly endless searching of Mankrik for his
beloved wife’s body has finally come to an end and thanks to
the tireless efforts of the Druid Naralex the southern part of the zone
has been revived from it’s desert state into a lush oasis.
However, most of the zone still resembles the rugged African savannah.



Several breadcrumb quests can be found that lead to the Northern
Barrens including “Conscript of the Horde”,
“Warchief’s Command: Northern Barrens!”
and “Preserving the Barrens” all of which can be
obtained in the neighboring zone of Durotar. The Northern Barrens is
also home to the Wailing Caverns, a five man instance for players
levels 10-25.

From Far Watch Post players will be sent to Grol’dom Farm by
means of the quest “Crossraod Caravan Pickup”. To
gain access to this quest players must complete the quest
“The Far Watch Offensive” the last in a quest chain
starting with “Conscript of the Horde“,
“Preserving the Barrens“, or
“Warchief’s Command: Northern Barrens”.

Grol'dom Farm

After Grol’dom Farm it will finally be time for players to
head to the Crossroads and once again they will be doing so as part of
a caravan escort via the quest “Crossroads Caravan
Pickup”. This quest can be obtained immediately upon arrival
at Grol’dom Farm, so be sure to complete all other quests
here before joining the caravan.



The Crossroads

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Tip:  style="font-style: italic;">This is the first quest
    hub in the zone with a flight path, be sure to pick it up!

Upon arriving at the Crossroads players will find that as quickly as
they arrive, they will be leaving once again. “The Forgotten
Pools” sends the players to the Forgotten Pools, one of the
lush oasis areas in the zone. Here two NPCs offer two quests of
their own that can be completed alongside the ones previously obtained
at the Crossroads.

The Forgotten
Pools

Once questing is completed at the Forgotten Pools players will once
again head back to the Crossroads where they will obtain “In
Fungus We Trust” and “A Growing Problem”,
both of which will send the players away from the Crossroads again to
the Stagnant Oasis.



The Stagnant
Oasis

style="margin: 10px; float: right; width: 200px;"> href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/93222" target="_blank"> src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/93222" alt=""

    style="font-style: italic;">None
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Tips: style="font-style: italic;">While completing the
    quest “Flushing out
    Verog” please note that while
    there are plenty of Centaur tents around the Oasis, the tents
    containing the quest item you seek are actually on the Oasis. If you
    venture to tents outside the green edges of the Oasis you have gone to
    far.

After completing the quests in Crossroads players will have two options
as to where to adventure next.  “The Purloined
Payroll” and “Who’s Shroomin’
Who?” will lead players to the Goblin run town of Ratchet
along the coast, while “Deathgate’s
Reinforcements” will take players to the west of the zone
where they will find a small outpost used to fend off the almost
constant Centaur attacks. The outpost contains fewer quests and no
breadcrumb quests leading players elsewhere so it is suggested this
quest hub is visited first.



Regthar Deathgate's
Outpost

Tips:
style="font-style: italic;">While completing the
Hezrul Bloomark quest please note that Herzrul is a level 19 mob
accompanied by two level  17 guards making this quest rather
difficult. While not listed as a group quest it may be a good idea to
bring a friend along.



After the quests are completed at Regthar Deathgate’s Outpost
are completed players should now head to Ratchet using the breadcrumb
quests mentioned above.

The quest “Raging
River Ride” will send players out of Rachet in style on a
river boat and after an uneventful ride players will find themselves at
the next quest hub; Nozzlepot’s Outpost.

Swiftdagger  who has a few quests up his sleeve.

Your questing experience in the Northern Barrens is over, and you are
ready to move on and thankfully there is as per usual a breadcrumb
quest to lead you onward. While you have already left the Crossroads
far behind at least one more visit is in order. Here at level 19 the
quest “To The Mor’shan Rampart” opens
effectively leading players into Ashenvale. Don’t feel like
heading back to the Crossroads? Seek out the nearest
Warchief’s Command board where you will find the quest
“Warchief’s Command: Ashenvale!”.
Congratulations on a successful completion of the zone!

Azshara is the second zone choice on Kalimdor players have while
leveling from 10-20. Until very recently had been reserved for players
levels of higher levels. While the level range of Azshara has certainly
changed, the overall feel of the zone has not. Cloaked in seemingly
eternal Autumn Azshara is a mixture of romance and gloom.



Named after the infamous Queen Azshara, the zone has recently been
turned over the Goblins of the Bligewater Cartel, the Horde’s
newest allies. In typical Goblin fashion the new inhabitants have taken
it upon themselves to blast apart the zone to suit their fancy, turning
it into a giant Horde symbol, to prove their allegiance to the Horde.



This raping of the landscape has angered the Night Elf forces here and
as such they have launched an all out attack on the Horde in the zone.
However, another set of new inhabitants who have  taken over
the northern reaches of the zone pose an ever greater threat to both
Horde and Alliance alike. The Black Dragonflight, bent on hunting down
Azuregos, along with the Naga who have also made their home in Azshara
are a formidable problem indeed.



Azshara is considered a contested zone, belonging to neither Horde nor
Alliance, and currently has no active instances.



Players who wish to venture into this zone will find that breadcrumb
quest at the nearest Warchief’s Command Board, found in
either Thunder Bluff or Orgrimmar. This board will provide you with the
quest
“Warcheif’s Command: Azshara!”
which
will lead you to the very first quest hub in the zone located at the
newly made rear gate to Orgrimmar.

    The
    Runaway Shredders found near this quest hub will not attack you unless
    attacked even though they are shown as hostile mobs.



Assuming the player completes all the quests at Orgrimmar’s
Rear Gate they will have two quests, style="font-style: italic;"> “Return of the
Highborne?” and style="font-style: italic;">“Report to
Horzak”, leading
them to the nearby Orgrimmar’s Rocketway Exchange, one of the
many stops of the Goblin Rocketway.  Quests found here relate
to the nearby Mountainfoot Strip Mine.

Complete all the quests at the Orgrimmar’s Rocetway Exchange
to unlock the quest style="font-style: italic;">“Another Warm
Body” which will
send you on your way to the next quest hub at Forlorn Ridge. Here you
will explore the Ruins of Eldarath and help exterminate the Naga forces
there.

After completing various quests that allow you to wipe out large
numbers of Naga and learn of a very valuable object the quest
Private
Chat”
will become
available and you will
be sent back to the Orgrimmar Rocketway Exchange.

Helping take care of a rather pesky bulldozer will make players more
than ready to once again be leaving the Orgrimmar Rocketway Exchange
with the quest “ style="font-style: italic;">Need More
Science”. This time
players will be headed off to the Southern Rocketway Terminus, and
don’t forget you can use the Goblin Rocketway to get there
twice as fast!

Complete the quests at the Southern Rocketway Terminus to unlock the
quest “A
Hello to Arms”

which will take you away
from the Naga, giant poo, and mass explosions that marked this quest
hub to Bligewater Harbor for some more Goblin related fun.

Your stay in the Harbor will be brief and after some running around you
will find yourself faced with two breadcrumb quests: 
“Friends

and
“There

,
take the later of the two and you will
literally be rocketed onto The Shattered Strand.

will send you to a forward post in the Ruins of Eldarath to begin work
with some Goblin special forces.



Ruins of Eldarath

Finish the quests here and now it’s time to complete the
other breadcrumb quest you obtained while in Bligewater Harbor style="font-style: italic;">“Friends Come
In All Colors” which
will take you into the Ruins of Arkkoran along the northern beaches of
the zone where you will complete quests for a very strange Murloc.

Almost as soon as you arrive at the Northern Rocketway Exchange you
will receive the quest style="font-style: italic;">“Dressed to
Impress” which
will send you on your way to the next quest hub where you will meet the
rather eccentric Archmage Xylem. You have the option to either complete
all the quests at the Northern Rocketway Exchange before moving on or
picking up the quests from both hubs and completing them
simultaneously.

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Elite/Group Quests:
    None
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Tips: style="font-style: italic;"> The quest
    “Waste of Thyme” is very appropriately named as it
    is a huge waste of time. The quest item, Living Ire Thyme, is very rare
    and blends into the grass in Azshara almost flawlessly. To help make
    this quest a tad bit easier, this herb appears to only spawn under
    trees. If you find you are still having difficulties be sure to set
    your Ground Clutter video setting to low which should make the Thyme
    easier to spot.

After completing the quests for his apprentices Archmage
Xylem will
send you to the Arcane Pinnacle via the quest style="font-style: italic;">“The Pinnacle
of Learning”. Here
you will undertake several trials in order to continue to prove
yourself.

    None
  • style="font-weight: bold;">Tips: style="font-style: italic;">While attempting to
    complete the first quest you encounter here “Watch Your
    Step” remember to click on the power sources as you jump up
    the Cliffside. If you do not activate all six of the power sources you
    will have to jump down and begin again.

Prove yourself to the Archmage and you will have the chance make
contact with a love struck Azuregos. Convince him to join the cause in
ridding Azshara of the Black Dragonflight and follow the quest chain
until the quest style="font-style: italic;">“Fade to
Black” becomes
available. This quest will send you to the next quest hub at the
Northern Rocketway Terminus.

  • style="font-weight: bold;">Elite/Group Quests:
    None

Complete the available quests at the Northern Rocketway Terminus and be
sent packing back to Bligewater Harbor where you will turn in the quest
“Farewell
Minnow”
. Once
turned in another nearby quest style="font-style: italic;">“Airborne
Again” will open
and you will be off on another adventure, this time to Valormok. Ignore
the fact the quest giver apparently cannot properly spell the name of
this quest hub.

If you are brave and cunning enough to finish the quests at Valormok
you will receive the quest style="font-style: italic;">“Probing into
Ashenvale” which
requests your assistance in the lovely land of Ashenvale, which will be
the next stop on your leveling adventure. Congratulations on a zone
well done!
