Borean Tundra 68-70 (Part 1)
As you may know, WotLK Classic is right around the corner and we are all preparing ourselves for the WotLK Classic Horde leveling by doing research and gearing up our characters. Before starting this guide, I’d suggest you check out our “WotLK Classic” article to see what you need to prepare for the expansion before TBC Classic is over. You can find the service cards from BlazingBoost within that article. If you need help with any of that content, we’ve got you covered! 🙂
Now, moving on to the WotLK Classic Horde leveling guide. I will mark the questlines in a zone with the same color so it’s easier to follow and I will also attach Wowhead links when needed to make it clear for you. Non-questline chains will be marked in yellow and the questline chains will have a unique color for each different chain.
WotLK Classic Horde Leveling Guide Part 1
The expansion starts with you taking the zeppelin from Orgrimmar to Borean Tundra. Once you arrive in the Warsong Hold, you need to take !Hellscream’s Vigil quest from the Warsong Recruitment Officer. He is literally the first NPC you will see when you enter the Warsong Hold.
You will turn in !Hellscream’s Vigil inside the keep and pick up The Defense of Warsong Hold. It is wise to set your Hearthstone to Hellscream’s Vigil at this point. Walk outside the hold, turn in The Defense of Warsong Hold and pick up the following quests:
- Taking Back Mightstone Quarry
- Taken by the Scourge
- Patience is a Virtue That We Don’t Need
Now walk South and go to the Mightstone Quarry, which is around here:
Here you will have to:
- Kill 15 Nerub’ar
- Kill the cocoons to free 5 Warsong Peons. Sometimes guardians may come out of them, which is fine. You will have soldiers of your own!
- Collect 15 Warsong Munitions Crates
After you do all of these, go back to Warsong Hold. Turn in:
- Patience is a Virtue That We Don’t Need and take Bury Those Cockroaches
- Taken by the Scourge
- Taking Back Mightstone Quarry and take Cutting of the Source
Get the first quest of a new questline, Untold Truths.
Go back to Mightstone Quarry. You can kill cocoons to get some guardians to help you along the way. Stand on East Nerub’ar Sinkhole and use the quest item Seaforium Depth Charge Bundle to destroy it.
Go to the Scaffolds and destroy 10 Nerub’ar Egg Sacs.
Go to the South Nerub’ar Sinkhole and use your quest item Seaforium Depth Charge Bundle to destroy it. Make your way to the West Nerub’ar Sinkhole and destroy it with your quest item Seaforium Depth Charge Bundle as well. You will find Shadowstalker Luther here. Turn in Untold Truths and take Nerub’ar Secrets.
Go to the North Nerub’ar Sinkhole and use your quest item Seaforium Depth Charge Bundle again to destroy it. Return to Warsong Hold.
