WoW WotLK Classic Alliance Death Knight 55-61 Leveling Guide

Get the quest [55] In Service Of The Lich King. I suggest to zoom out your minimap to the maximum, that way you’ll see the yellow “?” from far away on your minimap.

Go northwest to Instructor Razuvious, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] The Emblazoned Runeblade.

Now look for glowing weapon rack like the one in the picture below:

55sk1.jpg

Right-click it to loot a Battle-worn Sword. Open your inventory and right-click the sword while standing next to a runeforge:

55sk2.jpg

Go back to Instructor Razuvious, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Runeforging: Preparation For Battle.

Go to the nearest runeforge, open your spellbook and click on runeforging:

55sk3.jpg

Engrave your weapon with a Rune of Cinderglacier.

Go back to Instructor Razuvious, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] The Endless Hunger.

Now time for our first fight. It’s pretty straight forward, use your attacks in this order:


Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Blood Strike –> Blood Strike –> Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Death Coil –> Restart the cycle

If one of your abilities get dodged or misses, keep re-casting it until it works. Your target must always have both the Icy Touch and the Plague Strike disease on before you use Blood Strike on them, that way you get the maximum damage out of Blood Strike.


Go down in the pit, right-click an Acherus Soul Prison, wait for the Unworthy Initiate to become attackable and kill it.

Go back to Razuvious, turn in and get the follow up [55] The Eye Of Acherus.

Go to The Lich King, turn in and get the follow up [55] Death Comes From On High.

To the left and right of The Lich King you should find an Eye of Acherus Control Mechanism. Right-click it.

Your ability bar will be replaced by a new bar with the eye’s abilities.

After a short trip down, you’ll get control on the Eye of Acherus. First, rise higher in the air to be out of firing range of any scarlet mob and then use Ability #3 to become invisible.

After that, find the first location we’re going to analyze: the New Avalon Forge.

55sk4.jpg

Very easy to spot thanks to the red arrow floating over it.

Use Ability #2 and try to target as many scarlet npcs as you can. This will summon ghouls on each of them to distract them while you use Ability #1 to analyze the building.

When done, rise up in the air and go invisible again. If the Eye of Acherus is low on health, you can wait a little for his HPs to regen.

On to the next building, just south of the forge, you’ll find The Scarlet Hold. Apply the same strategy.

Directly west you’ll find the New Avalon Town Hall, analyze it:

55sk5.jpg

Finally go directly south and you’ll find the Chapel of the Crimson Flame:

55sk6.jpg

Analyze it and the quest should be complete.

Use Ability #5 and you’ll be back to your character. Turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] The Might of the Scourge.

A few paces behind The Lich King you’ll find a glowing pink teleporter. Step on it and you’ll be teleported to another floor.

Go northwest to Highlord Darion Mograine, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Report To Scourge Commander Thalanor.

Equip your new necklaceBladed Ebon Amulet

Further southwest is another quest called [55] The Power of Blood, Frost and Unholy, complete it immediately.

Go back to the balcony (not the teleporter) and turn in the quest at Scourge Commander Thalanor. Get the follow up [55] The Scarlet Harvest.

Right-click one of the Scourge Gryphons and fly down to Death’s Breach.

Go a few paces south and turn in the quest at Prince Valanor, get the follow up [55] If Chaos Drives, Let Suffering Hold The Reins.

3 other quests should have appeared on your minimap now, get them all.

First thing, we’re gonna look around the camp for Death Knight Initiates:

55sk7.jpg

Right-click them, challenge them to a duel and defeat them. You can also challenge other players, but that’s more difficult. Repeat this 5 times. Use the food you have in your inventory if you’re low HP after a duel.

When done, go turn in [55] Death’s Challenge. You’ll get one talent point to spend as a reward. We’ll only put our points in the Unholy tree for now.


Spend your first talent point in Morbidity.


Time to kill stuff, finally!

sk55circuit1.jpg

1. Go south down the path and then southeast towards the yellow “!” on your minimap while killing everything on the way and also picking up Saronite Arrows.

55sk8.jpg

When you get to the yellow “!“, you’ll be infront of a mailbox with a scroll on top.

55sk9.jpg

Right-click the scroll and complete the quest. You can then open the mailbox and get a book from it. It’s just lore though, you can read it if you want. I personally read it quickly and destroyed it, it can’t be sold.

After that go back to killing stuff and looting Sardonite Arrows until you finish both quests.

2. Once done, go to the stables, which are located on the northeastern part of the field.

Go to the nearest horse you can find and right-click it to mount it, then go back to Death’s Breach, you can use the horse’s Ability #2 to gallop.

3. Go to Salanar the Horseman, he stands right in the middle of Death’s Breach, then use the horse’s Ability #1 to deliver it to Salanar.

Turn in [55] Grand Theft Palomino and get the follow up [55] Into the Realm of Shadows.


Put your new talent point in Morbidity.


You’ll be in the shadow world after accepting this quest. Go down back in the fields and look for a Dark Rider of Acherus, kill it and then right-click his horse.

Ride back to Death’s Breach and once there, use Ability #1, Horseman’s Call. A few seconds later you’ll be back in the normal world.

unmounticon.jpg Click on the “Leave Vehicle” button, go to Salanar the Horseman and turn in the quest.

You can now summon your own Deathcharger. To do that, open the character window (“c” key), go to the Pets tab, drag the Acherus Deathcharger icon on a free action bar slot. Click it and voila!

Turn in:

  • [55] If Chaos Drives, Let Suffering Hold The Reins
  • [55] Tonight We Dine in Havenshire

It doesn’t matter which cloak you pick, I personally like the one with frost resistance, because it fits the rest of the equipment better.

Get the quest [55] Gothik the Harvester from Prince Valanar. Go to Gothik the Harvester and turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] The Gift That Keeps On Giving.

You should be level 56. Equip your newly acquired items:

CloakShroud of the North Wind
RelicSigil of the Dark Rider
RingValanar’s Signet Ring


Spend your talent points as follows:


Level 56

sk55circuit2.jpg

1. This time go down the path north then east and enter the Havenshire Mine (58,31).

56sk0.jpg Search your inventory for the Gift of the Havester and put it on a hotbar.

Use the Gift of the Harvester on Scarlet Miners. Repeat this step until you have 5 ghouls under your control.

Go back to Gothik the Harvester, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] An Attack Of Opportunity.

Equip your new trinketSoul Harvester’s Charm


Put your talent point in Ravenous Dead.


2. Go to Prince Valanar, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Massacre at Light’s Point. Now comes a fun quest, I suggest reading the rest of point 2. before proceeding.

Outside of Havenshire Mine you’ll find an Inconspicuous Mine Car.

56sk1.jpg

When you right-click it, you’ll be taken to a ship and will be facing 3 Scarlet Cannons.

56sk2.jpg

If you right-click one of them, you’ll take control of it and will this window will appear instead of your hotbars:

56sk3.jpg

Ability #1 is your main ability, chain use it to kill as many Scarlet NPCs as you can. To aim, hold your mouse right-click button and move your mouse.

Ability #2 is to protect you. Whenever a few Scarlet NPCs make it close to you, use ability #2 to repell them.

Ability #5 is to escape. Use it once you’ve killed 100 Scarlet Defenders.

==TIP== Aim for the bridge leading to the ship every 2 or 3 shot to prevent them to get to you. If they do, there’s still Ability #2 anyway.

3. You should be more than ready now, go right-click the Inconspicuous Mine Car and have fun!

4. Go back to Prince Valanar, turn in [55] Massacre at Light’s Point, get the follow up [55] Victory At Death’s Breach!

Right-click on a Scourge Gryphon to fly back to Acherus.

Go to Highlord Darion Mograine, turn in and get the follow up [55] The Will Of The Lich King.

Equip your new items:


Spend talent points as follows:


Go to Lord Thorval (in the room just northwest of Mograine) and train your new skills:

Pestilence, Death Strike and Raise Dead.


Now things are starting to get interesting.

Raise Dead: Not much to explain, it summons a ghoul who fights for you. It’s great, the ghoul can take quite a lot of pain and deals a decent amount too.

Pestilence: this skill is very useful when fighting multiple enemies. Whenever you fight several enemies at the same time, choose a target and do this:

Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Pestilence

This will spread all the diseases to other nearby enemies, as long as they are close enough (about 20 yards).

Death Strike: Incredibly good skill. You’re gonna be much harder to kill from now on. The damage you do with it heals you once for each disease on your target. Needless to say, it’s better to use it after having diseased your target with Icy Touch and Plague Strike.

So from now on your attack cycle should look like this:

Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Death Strike –> Blood Strike –> Blood Strike –> Death Coil –> Death Strike –> Death Strike –> Blood Strike –> Blood Strike –> Death Coil –> Restart cycle

It might seem complicated, but it’s actually not. You’ll see that this rotation makes perfect sense as it uses all your cooldowns whenever they are up. You can try it on the practice dummies in Death’s Breach, close to the gryphon landing site. Of course, your enemies will die before you finish the full cycle most of the time, but that’s ok. Just try to get used to this, because dps cycles are a big part of the Death Knight class, and being able to perform them well will determine if you’re a good DK or a mediocre DK.


Go back to the Balcony and take a Gryphon ride down. Go to Prince Valanar, he’s at a new location closer to the cliff.

Turn in and get the follow up [55] The Crypt of Remembrance.

Go sell and repair at Hargus the Gimp (53,35), a few steps infront of Prince Valanar . Also buy some Corpse Dust from him (about 5), this will allow you to summon a ghoul even when there’s no corpse available.

sk55circuit3.jpg

1. Mount up, ride south/southeast to Noth the Plaguebringer (56,52). Take his quest [55] The Plaguebringer’s Request.

2. You should see a yellow “?” on your minimap southwest of where you are. Go there, enter the Crypt of Rememberance (54,58) and turn in the quest.

Get [55] Nowhere To Run And Nowhere To Hide and [55] Lambs To The Slaughter.

3. Get out of the crypt and go southeast to New Avalon.

Kill everything on your way from now on. On your left-hand side after entering you should see a big building, the New Avalon Inn (58,65).

Go inside and go down to the basement cellar where you’ll find an Empty Cauldron, loot it.

56sk4.jpg

4. Northeast of the inn you’ll find the New Avalon Forge (61,61).

Enter the building and loot an Iron Chain.

56sk5.jpg

5. Mount up and ride southwest to the New Avalon Town Hall, a big building with a clock tower (53,71).

Go inside the Town Hall, kill Mayor Quimby and loot the New Avalon Registry.

56sk6.jpg

Now just go out and kill stuff until you finish [55] Lambs To The Slaughter. You’ll find all the Citizens you need right outside the town hall (have some fun with pestilence).

Mount up and ride out of New Avalon.

First stop by Noth the Plaguebringer, turn in and get the follow up [55] Noth’s Special Brew.

Go to the cauldron next to him and turn in the quest to get 5 of those cool potions. Feel free to overuse them, we’ll get a lot more later on. You should put them on a hotbar, ready for use, just in case (but to tell you the truth, you won’t be needing them much unless you’re suicidal :P).

Go to the Crypt of Rememberance and turn in both quests, get the follow up [55] How To Win Friends And Influence Enemies

Equip your new items:


Spend your talent points as follows:

==Note== On a Pale Horse is a great talent. You have to realize that until level 77 in Northrend, you won’t be able to use a flying mount while leveling, so you will stick to ground mounts for 21 more levels starting from now. Now imagine how much time you’re going to save with this 20% extra mount speed. A very significant amount, trust me 😛 The fear and stun 20% reduction is also a nice bonus.


sk55circuit4.jpg

1. Go back in New Avalon, to the Scarlet Hold, it’s that big casern on the east side of New Avalon. When there, open the Ornately Jeweled Box in your inventory and equip the two One-Handed Swords. Then just start attacking people in there until one of them tells you what you want to know.

2. Go back to the Crypt of Rememberance, turn in and get the follow up [55] Behind Scarlet Lines.

Equip your new ring (instead of the green one of course): Keleseth’s Signet Ring


Spend your talent points as follows:


3. Get out, mount up and ride a long way south to the Scarlet Tavern (56,80). Go to the upper floor and turn in, get the follow up [55] The Path Of The Righteous Crusader. Also get the other quest [55] Brothers in Death and get out of this building.

4. Ride northeast to the Scarlet Hold. Clear the way up to the upper floor and go to the central main room.

On a table there you’ll find the New Avalon Patrol Schedule.

56sk7.jpg

Loot it.

After that, go down all the way to the cellar basement, where you will find Koltira Deathweaver. Turn in your quest, but before you get the follow up, read the next few lines.

Koltira will create an anti-magic barrier, you must fight inside it as much as possible to reduce the damage you’ll take from the acolytes. You can pull them inside with Death Grip as well. After about 2 minutes, High Inquisitor Valroth will come. Pull him inside the barrier with Death Grip and kill him. Mission accomplished. Don’t forget you have potions if things go wrong.

You’re more than ready now, so get the follow up [55] Bloody Breakout and protect Koltira. It doesn’t matter if you die, you’ll get resurected, but Koltira must survive.

Once Valroth is dead, his remains will appear on the floor:

56sk8.jpg

Right-click them to loot Valroth’s Head.

5. Go back to the Scarlet Tavern. Turn in both quests, get the follow up [55] A Cry For Vengeance!

Equip your new items:

You should be level 57 by now.

Level 57


Spend your talent points as follows:

==Note== You just became godlike. The biggest upgrade here is Master of Ghouls. Now you’ll always have a ghoul fighting for you, until it dies. And if it dies, just re-summon it. You’ll also be able to control your ghoul from now on and will get a pet bar:

ghoulpetbar.jpg

Controlling your ghoul properly will be a nice advantage for you in the future. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your ghoul.

Ghoul Control Tips:

  1. Use Key bindings. The default keybindings are CTRL-1, CTRL-2, etc. I personally prefer to change them to SHIFT-1, SHIFT-2, etc, because I find reaching for CTRL plus a number is uncomfortable. That’s up to you, you can bind any key you like for your pet bar. If you want to change your pet bar key bindings, go to options > key bindings and change your Secondary Action Button 1, 2, 3, etc.Only 4 buttons are very important to bind anyway: Attack, Follow, Gnaw and Huddle.Gnaw is your pet’s stun, it’s great to interrupt spells and also to stop things from running. Use it smartly.
    Huddle is a defensive boost for 10 seconds, use it to preserve your ghoul’s health when he’s taking a lot of damage.
  2. Level your First Aid skill. It might not be very useful for now, but you’ll see in the future, when you solo difficult elites for certain quests, your ghoul will need healing after the fights, and trust me, Death Coil isn’t always enough. So instead, bandage your ghoul! Anyway, leveling first aid also gives you achievement points, so might as well get it done

Summon Gargoyle:

An amazing skill. It’s a big dps burst, which can last a total of 1 minute if you provide enough runic power. Here are a few tips:

  1. Build up 100 Runic power before activating this skill
  2. Don’t even think about using Death Coil while your gargoyle is up. If your runic power goes down to zero, your gargoyle despawns
  3. Use it at the right time, like when about to fight an elite, it’s kind of a waste in most other cases

Dirge:

Thanks to dirge, you’ll get more runic power now, that means you’ll have to try to squish in some extra death coils in your attack cycles. If you pay attention to your cooldowns, you’ll see there’s often room for an extra death coil here and there during your cycles.


sk55circuit5.jpg

1. Go southwest to the Chapel of the Crimson Flame (53,81). Find Knight Commander Plaguefist, turn in and get the follow up [55] A Special Surprise

Go inside the long house and find the NPC corresponding to your race. (If you’re human, find the human Ellen Stanbridge. If you are Gnome, find the gnome Goby Blastenheimer, etc.)

Watch that NPC make his speech and you’ll have to kill it at the end. Put your ghoul on passive mode, because you won’t get the kill credit if the ghoul does more damage than you.

Go back to Knight Commander Plaguefist, turn in and get the follow up [55] A Sort of Homecoming.

2. Go back to the Scarlet Tavern, turn in [55] A Sort of Homecoming and get [55] Ambush at the Overlook.

Equip your new trinket (instead of the Insignia of the Scourge): Signet of the Dark Brotherhood


Spend your talent points as follows:

Reaping: This converts your blood runes into death runes when you use Blood Strike or Blood Boil (which we’ll get soon). A Death Rune is a universal rune, it counts as any type of rune. Why is that good? For many reasons. It allows you to have more flexibility in your cycles. It allows you for example to re-cast your Bone Shield in fight without messing up your Death Strike cycles. Or better, if you convert both your blood runes into death runes, you’ll then be able to use Death Strike 3 times in a row, and that’s great when you’re having a tough fight and need a lot of lifedrain. Later on, you’ll be using Scourge Strike instead of Death Strike most of the time, and you’ll understand how valuable reaping is, because Scourge Strike is the kind of ability you want to spam as often as possible 😉


3. Mount up and ride east to the Scarlet Overlook (62,77).

Find a clear spot near the path.

56sk9.jpg Look for a Makeshift Cover in your inventory

Right-click it, the Scarlet Courrier will appear, kill it and loot everything he has.

Go back to the Scarlet Tavern, turn in and get [55] A Meeting With Fate.

4. You should now be disguised as a Scarlet Courrier. Get out, mount up and ride to the Scarlet Overlook.

This time take the path south leading down to King’s Harbor, where you will find High General Abbendis (65,84).

Turn in and get [55] The Scarlet Onslaught Emerges.

5. Go back to the Scarlet Tavern, turn in the quest, but before your get the follow up, read the following paragraph.


You should have 4 talent points now, spend them as follows:


==Optional== Before going back to turn in this quest, I recommend killing some more Scarlet NPCs to get Crusader Skulls, which we you can turn in at the cauldron for extra health potions. 20 Crusader Skulls = 5 Potions, and you can carry a maximum of 20 potions. I personally farm 60 Skulls, and then I get out of this place with 20 Potions (including the 5 we got from quest earlier). The fastest way to get skulls is to kill the citizens outside of the town hall, it’s even easier if you put your ghoul on aggressive mode. However those don’t give exp, so you might want to kill other things, it will just take longer. After you have 60 skulls be sure to go back to the cauldron to turn in and get your 20 Potions *BEFORE* going back to the Scarlet Tavern. If you return to Acherus without turning the skulls in there is no way to turn them in later.

Got your 20 potions? Let’s move on then, go back to the Scarlet Tavern.

Get the follow up [55] Scarlet Armies Approach… Orbaz Bloodbane will then open a portal for you, take it and you’ll be back in Acherus.

Go to Highlord Darion Mograine, turn in and get [55] The Scarlet Apocalypse.

Equip your new pauldronsBlood-soaked Saronite Plated Spaulders

Don’t worry about talents for now, we are not gonna fight for a while.

Go see your trainer, buy Frost Presence and Mind Freeze. Don’t waste money on the rest, Rune of Spellbreaking/Shattering is not useful to us at this point. Of course, if you’re rich, feel free to buy those skills anyway.


Frost Presence: That’s the tanking stance, pretty much like the defensive stance of warriors. We won’t use it much in this guide, it’s mostly for tanking in instances. However, it’s also useful when you’re running away from something, as it increases your armor and spell mitigation, making you much much more survivable. Other than that, stay in blood stance.

Mind Freeze: Our first spell interruption (well argueably the second, because you can interrupt spells with Death Grip too, but that’s not its main purpose). It doesn’t trigger the global cooldown, which is great, because that means you can cast it at any moment without disrupting your attack rotations.

Anyway, enough talking, let’s get back to business.


Take a gryphon ride back to Death’s Breach. Go talk to The Lich King, get the follow up [55] An End to All Things.

57sk0.jpg Look in your inventory for a Horn of the Frostbrood.

Right-click it. You’ll climb on a Frostwyrm and your action bars will be replaced by this:

57sk1.jpg
  • Ability #1 is your attack. It’s just like with the canon we used before, aim by holding your mouse right-cilck button.
  • Ability #2 is to refill the Wyrm’s mana. Should you need to do that, go find a lone Scarlet Defender and use it on him (have to be within 15 yards range).

You need to kill 150 Scarlet Soldiers (a piece of cake) and to destroy 10 Ballistas. The ballistas are a little more tricky, because their javelins kinda hurt so you must dodge them.

It’s quite straight forward though, you simply have to strafe to the left or to the right every time after you shoot, and the javelin will miss you. Like on the screenshot below:

57sk2.jpg

Basically it goes like this: Shoot –> Strafe left –> Shoot –> Strafe Right –> Repeat till ballista is destroyed.

For the 150 Scarlet Soldiers, go behind the walls of New Avalon, you’ll find big packs of them.

When done with that, fly back to The Lich King.

unmounticon.jpg Click on the “Leave Vehicle” button and turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] The Lich King’s Command.

Equip your new helmGreathelm of the Scourge Champion


Spend your talent points as follows:

You are now officially unkillable.

Bone Shield: A great ability for just 1 Unholy Rune. Re-cast it after every fight if possible. Not only will you take less damage, but you’ll also do more while having this shield on.

Desecration: +5% damage and slows down enemies around you, which is great to escape if things go wrong. We mostly take it for the 5% damage boost.

Scourge Strike: Rejoice. Expect a big improvement in your damage output. This replaces Death Strike in your usual rotation. Only use Death Strike when you need healing.


sk55circuit6.jpg

1. Mount up, go northwest through a tunnel, you’ll then be in the Noxious Glade (Eastern Plaguelands).

2. Go west and take the path going down at (40,20), all the way to Browman Mill, where you’ll find Scourge Commander Thalanor (34,30). Turn in and get the follow up [55] The Light of Dawn.

Now all you have to do is take part in a cool event, follow Highlord Darion Mograine and fight with him. You don’t actually have to fight, but I recommend doing it for fun, because you get a buff which makes you almost invincible and also makes you hit like a truck. Don’t be too reckless though, only attack the Defenders of the Light there, avoid the named NPCs such as Korfax, Duke Zverenhoff, etc.

At the end of the script, you can turn in your quest at Highlord Darion Mograine. Choose Sword or Axe, it doesn’t matter (pick the Sword if your race is human though).

Get the follow up [55] Taking Back Acherus.

Open your spell book and cast Death Gate (Unholy). Click the gate to be teleported back to Acherus. I suggest not lingering here too long, because the script will reset soon and all those imba argent dawn NPCs will soon be back to agressive mode and make quick work of you 😛

After teleporting, turn in your quest and get the follow up [55] The Battle For The Ebon Hold.

Equip your new weapon if you haven’t done that already.


Spend your new talent points as follows:


Take the pink teleporter up, kill 10 Scourge and help killing Patchwerk.

Take the teleporter back, turn in the quest at Mograine and get the follow up [55] Where Kings Walk.

Behind Mograine to the right you should see a portal to Stormwind, take it.

In Stormwind, run (yes, you can’t use your mount here for now) to King Varian Wrynn in Stormwind Keep:

sk55circuit7.jpg

Turn in the quest.

Get the quest [62] The First and the Last from King Varian Wrynn.

1. Get out of Stormwind Keep, mount up (yes now you can!)

Find Mathias Shaw in the Old Town, he’s on the first floor of the big building named SI:7.

Turn in the quest [62] The First and the Last, get the follow up, turn it in and get the follow up [62] Flint Shadowmore.

2. Visit the auction house, put stuff on sale. Also get some better bags, because the 12-slot bags are gonna be a bother in the long run. However, if you’re low on cash, you must at least keep 3gold 50silver to buy your new skills.

3. hs.jpg Go to the inn and make Stormwind your home location.

You should be level 58 by now.

Level 58

Death Gate back to Acherus. Visit one of the trainers, get Blood Boil and Chains of Ice.


Chains of Ice: A very useful skill to prevent enemies from running away. Can also be used to kite or to escape.

Blood Boil: This will basically replace blood strike when taking on multiple targets.

So from now on, against multiple enemies, your dps cycle will be:

Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Pestilence –> Blood Boil –> Death Strike –> Death Coil –> Death Strike –> Blood Boil –> Blood Boil –> Death Strike –> Death Coil –> Death Strike –> Blood Boil –> Blood Boil –> Stuff should be dead.

Spend you talent point as follows:


Take the pink teleporter up. Go to a runeforge and engrave a Rune of Cinderglacier to your weapon. Also buy some Corpse Dust while you’re here.

Take the teleporter back down. Go on the balcony and take a flight path to Chillwind Camp, Western Plaguelands.

Get [52] Clear the Way from Commander Ashlam Valorfist(the quest won’t appear over his head, so just find him).
Complete the quest Argent Dawn Commission at Argent Officer Pureheart, you will receive a trinket.
When you kill undeads while wearing this trinket, you can collect Scourgestones from their bodies. Turning in these Scourgestones at Argent Officer Pureheart gets you reputation increases with the Argent Dawn and a token. However, the argent dawn faction is old and outdated, there’s nothing useful we can get from it nowadays, so I suggest to just destroy the trinket (you can get a new one whenever you want by simply talking to an argent dawn quartermaster).
Turn in [62] Flint Shadowmore and get the follow up [62] The Eastern Plagues.

Don’t get the other quests.

a56circuit5.jpg

1. Take the eastern path to Sorrow hill (46,81). Kill 10 Skeletal Flayers and 10 Slavering Ghouls.
Also get the quest [55] Little Pamela from Marlene Redpath, who is inside a house at (49,78).

2. Go back to Chillwind Camp and turn in [52] Clear the Way, get the two follow up [53] The Scourge Cauldrons and [56] All Along the Watchtowers.

Go to High Priestess MacDonnell and turn in [53] The Scourge Cauldrons. Get the follow up [53] Target: Felstone Field.

3. Go back through Sorrow Hill and enter the Ruins of Andorhal by the south gate (49,73).

In Andorhal try to avoid the roads as much as possible, as level 56 elite abominations patrol them. So just clear yourself a path through the destroyed houses. Also avoid the middle of the town of course, there’s a huge bunch of mobs there and Araj the Summoner (lvl 61 elite).

4. Go to the Fourth Watch Tower (46,70). Clear what’s in your way. You can drop the torch at the entrance of the watch tower without aggroing the Skeletal Warlord if you just get close to it without being in it’s line of sight. Look for the Beacon Torch in your inventory and click it while standing next to the tower’s door.

5. Go to the Tower One which is direclty to the west (40,71). It’s close to the western entrance to Andorhal. Mark it with the torch just like you did for the previous tower.

6. Go to Tower Two, northeast of tower one (42,66). It’s close to the northern entrance to Andorhal. Mark it.

7. Tower Three is right behind tower two, northeast of it. Be careful of the scarlet patrol and abomination patrol when you go there (44,63). Mark tower three. You can destroy the Beacon Torch.

==Note== As of last patch, the outhouse (48,49) is sometimes bugged, it’s impossible to interract with it, making it impossible to kill Farmer Dalson and to get the cabinet key. If you can’t interract with the outhouse, just forget this quest and move on to step 3.

Get out of the barn and look around for a Wandering Skeleton, there is only one of this kind and he roams around the barn, so keep killing stuff around the barn until you find it, kill it and loot “Dalson Outhouse Key”. Go behind the barn, you’ll find an Outhouse (48,49). Open it, kill Farmer Dalson, loot Dalson Cabinet Key.

Kill the 2 guards infront of it, clear the 1st floor of the tower carefully, then wait for Cavalier Durgen to show up. He goes to the top of the tower then walks back to the entrance. Wait for him to come down, you can’t kill him when he’s on top, he has 3 guards with him there.

After killing Durgen, clear the way to the top of the tower, there are 2 scarlet mages on top of the tower, you can actually pull just 1 if you take your time and body pull carefully. After you have cleared the top of the tower, you should find a Holy Coffer, right-click it and loot the Mark of the Lightbringer.

When you find her turn in [52] Good Natured Emma. Get the follow up [52] Good Luck Charm.

==Note== You should have a few Bone Fragments in your inventory, don’t sell them, we’ll need them for a quest later on.

a56circuit9.jpg

3. Go north/northwest to an area just north of Dalson’s Tears (45,40), where you will find plenty of wolves to complete the quest. Kill everything in this area until you have 8 Diseased Wolf Kills. Also note that the spiders in this area are placeholders for wolves, so you have to kill spiders too if you need more wolves.

4. Go southwest to the Felstone Field, go into the left house (38,54) on the 2nd Floor. Turn in the quest [52] Good Luck Charm at Janice Felstone and get the follow up [54] Two Halves Become One.

Get out of the house and look for a Jabbering Ghoul.

a50img7.jpg

This ghoul patrols all over the field. So just keep the area clean until it spawns, especially the Scarlet Patrol, as they might kill the Jabbering Ghoul before you even see it.

Once you find the Jabbering ghoul, kill it and it will drop a “Good Luck Other-Half-Charm”.

Once you have the other half charm, go back to Janice Felstone, right click on the other-half-charm in your inventory. Turn in the quest.

2. Go east to Gahron’s Withering (62,57). Clear a path to the Scourge Cauldron, when you get close Cauldron Lord Soulwrath will, appear, kill it.

Loot his key then go to the Cauldron, turn in the quest and get the follow up [58] Return to Chillwind Camp.

3. Go to the area which is in between Garon’s Withering and the Writhing Haunt. There should be plenty of grizzlies there. If not, kill spiders, they are placeholders for grizzlies. Kill everything in this area until you have 8 Diseased Grizzly Kills.

5. Go south along the river and then east into Eastern Plaguelands.

a59sk1.jpg

1. Go southeast while killing everything on the way. Find the Marris Stead but don’t get close to it! There’s a lvl 62 Elite NPC there, hits like a truck. Go around the Marris Stead so that you are east of it (29,74).

Just a bit closer to Nathanos Blightcaller you’ll find “Mangled Human Remains” (25,68). Loot the SI:7 Insignia (Turyen) from it.

Go a bit closer to Nathanos, on a small mound right infront of him you should find other human remains (23,68). Loot Fredo’s Insignia from it.

This is as close as you can get to Nathanos without aggroing it, and you should get the “Blightcaller Uncovered” (Complete) message.

Go backwards a bit and then south, you should find the last human remains close to the road (23,73). Loot Rutger’s Insignia.

2. Go southeast while killing everything on the way. Stay away from the Marris Stead though. Keep going southeast till Darrowshire.

Inside Darrowshire, find a small destroyed house on the western side of Darrowshire. You should find Pamela Redpath there, turn in the quest [55] Little Pamela and get the follow up [55] Pamela’s Doll.

==Tip== To avoid getting feared by the Plaguebats, use strangulate.
Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Scourge Strike –> Strangulate –> Blood Strike –> Death Coil.

You’ll get feared very seldomly this way.


2. Go east to the area north of the infectis scar and Corin’s Crossing. Kill everything around until you have 5 Plaguehound Kills.

3. Once you got 5 Plaguehound kills, go to the area which is north of Blackwood Lake (51,41). You should find Frenzied Plaguehounds around this area.

6. Step removed, ignore it.

Go back to Light’s Hope Chapel, fly to Chillwind Camp.

Turn in [58] Return to Chillwind Camp, go to Commander Ashlam Valorfirst and complete the quest “Mission Accomplished!”

Turn in [62] The Eastern Plagues at Flint Shadowmore, get the follow up [62] The Blightcaller Cometh.

Get the quest [55] A Plague Upon Thee from Nathaniel Dumah.

a59sk2.jpg

1. Ride east to Sorrow hill and find Marlene Redpath in the house (49,78).

Turn in [56] Auntie Marlene and get the follow up [56] A Strange Historian (Elite).

2. Search the graveyard just north of the house where Marlene Redpath is, look for “Joseph Redpath’s Monument” among the graves (49,76). Click the grave and get Joesph’s Wedding Ring.

3. Go back towards Chillwind Camp and take the other path to Andorhal, go inside the Ruins of Andorhal by the western entrance.

Inside Andorhal go to the house to the north, it’s the only house around with a floor and not totally destroyed (39,68). Inside the house go to the 2nd floor, in one of the rooms you’ll find Chromie. Turn in [b][56] A Strange historian, get the follow up [56] The Annals of Darrowshire. Also ge the other quest [56] A Matter of Time.

4. Go to the northern gate of Andorhal, and east of the first watch tower you’ll find two wooden silos (45,62) which look like this:

woodensilo.jpg

Get close to a silo and click your Temporal Displacer (the icon is actually a horn).

1 to 3 lvl 57 worms will spawn and attack you. Kill them. Move on to the next silo and repeat. Keep doing that until you have 10 Temporal Parasites slain. The worms only appear when the silo is sparkling blue. They take a while to sparkle again after you use them. However there’s 3 more silos just a bit more to the east in case you need.

5. Go back to Chromie, turn in [56] A Matter of Time and get the follow up [56] Counting Out time.

Now what you have to do is check destroyed houses in Andorhal and look for Small Lockboxes like this:

smalllockbox.jpg

Loot the Andorhal Watch from it. Keep doing this until you have 5 Andorhal Watches.

a59sk3.jpg

1. Go to the town hall (with a tower clock) which is in the middle of Andorhal, close to where Araj the Summoner is, you can sneak in the town hall without having to fight any of the bunch of mobs around it, just hug the walls.

Inside the town hall you’ll find several “Musty Tome” lying on the floor. When you click one, there is a chance you will find the Annals of Darrowshire, but there is a higher chance that you will get a “Ruined Tome” and 1 or 2 level 57 mobs will attack you. They give no loot and no exp. Hoewever there is a trick to know which tome is the right one. There is a slight graphical difference. The pages of the fake tomes have two-tone colored pages, lightbrown and white, like this one:

wrongtome.jpg

The good tome looks “newer”, and its pages only have one color tone, like this one:

goodtome.jpg

You can easily see the difference if you zoom in 1st person view and put your mouse pointer over the books to highlight them. Loot the Annals of Darrowshire.

2. Time for a little challenge. Let’s solo Araj the Summoner. Here’s how:

Fight your way around Araj, so that you end up on the east side of him, like on the screenshot below.

59sk0.jpg

We’ll pull from here, and you have to pull all the stuff I marked with a dot, because if you don’t, they’ll add when you attack Araj, and we want him solo.

  • 1. The first pull will be 4 mobs at least, some of them are Skeletal Acolytes, you need to kill those first because they heal. Pull one with Death Grip, use Strangulate on another so that he comes in your melee range. Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Pestilence –> Blood Boil –> Death Strike. Etc.
  • 2. Next, pull the 3 Spectral Attendants. This should be easy.
  • 3. North of Araj there should be a Skeletal Warlord and two ghouls. Pull those carefully, it should be an easy fight too.
  • 4. South of Araj should be 1 Skeletal Warlod and 1 Ghoul. Pull those and then you’ll only have Araj the Summoner left to kill.

Pull Araj from this spot, to make sure you don’t get jumped by respawns or by a patrol while fighting him:

59sk1.jpg

As you can see on the screenshot, I forgot to pull one ghoul, it will add when I pull Araj. However, I managed because Death Knights are imba. Don’t do this at home though!

When you’re ready, pull Araj with Death Grip, then Strangulate him and pull him backwards a little more (to where I stand on the screenshot below), to be 100% safe from the respawns/patrols. Then just fight him normally, interrupt his spells with Mind Freeze and use Summon Gargoyle as soon as you have 100 Runic Power. You also have potions if things go wrong.

59sk2.jpg

Loot Araj’s Phylactery.

3. Go back to Chromie, turn in [56] Counting Out time. The Attuned Dampener you get as a reward is only useable on Araj the Summoner, so you don’t care about that, destroy it. Yes I’m evil and made you kill Araj without using this on him, but it really wasn’t necessary, was it? 😛

Turn in [56] The Annals of Darrowshire, get the follow up [56] Brother Carlin.

Now you should also have finished [57] Skeletal Fragments and be close to finish [60] Bonescythe Digs. Kill some more skeletons in Andorhal until you have 30 Bone Fragments.

Get out of Andorhal by the north gate, then go east till Thondroril River and ride north to Tirion Fordring (7,43).

Turn in:

  • [56] Demon Dogs
  • [56] Blood Tinged Skies
  • [56] Carion Grubbage

Get the follow up [56] Redemption.

Right-click Tirion and go through his text.
Turn in the quest and get the follow up [57] Of Forgotten Memories.

You should be level 60 by now.


Put your talent point in Unholy Blight.

Unholy Blight: Our ultimate. It’s basically extra AoE power, great for taking on multiple enemies. However, 60 Runic Power is a bit pricy, so it’s not worth casting Unholy Blight on easy fights (single target or two monsters only), simply because by the time you build up 60 Runic Power, one of your target will already be dead and the other one will follow quickly, and the majority of your Unholy Blight will be wasted while you run to the next monster. Use it only on big fights, 3+ mobs, preferably more. You can chain kill packs of 5,6 or 7 mobs now.

If you want to know how, check out my AoE tutorial videos:

How to AoE with a Death Knight


Mount up and go to the Eastern Plaguelands.

a59sk4.jpg

1. Go southeast to the Undercroft, which is directly south of the Marris Stead.

Behind the crypt in the Undercroft you’ll find Tiron Fordring’s Grave (28,86). Next to it should be a “Loose Dirt Mound”.

Click the dirt mount, Mercutio Filthgorger and 3 Dwarf Graverobbers will spawn. Kill them and loot Taelan’s Hammer.

Go inside the crypt (27,85), clear the way down, kill Zaeldarr the Outcast and loot his head.

In the same room look for a “Torn Scroll” on the floor, click it and get the quest [60] Hameya’s Plea.

2. Go back to Tiron Fordring, turn in [56] Of Forgotten Memories, get the follow up [58] Of Lost Honor.

Death Gate to Acherus. Visit your trainer, train Rune of LichbaneDeath and Decay and Plague Strike (Rank 2).


Rune of Lichbane: This will be great for our final circuits in the plaguelands, as there are plenty of undeads just waiting to be whacked. Go engrave it on your weapon (unless you bought a better enchant like Executioner). Also buy some Corpse Dust and sell junk while you’re up there.

Death and Decay: It’s an AoE skill, but it’s not as efficient as the Pestilence/Blood Boil/Death Strike combo. It’s main use is to build a lot of threat when you’re tanking several mobs.


Fly to Light’s Hope Chapel. Turn in:

  • [60] Bonescythe Digs
  • [56] Brother Carlin, get [57] Villains of Darrowshire and [56] Heroes of Darrowshire

Anytime you kill one of these ghouls, a Spirit of Darrowshire will appear, right-click it to free it. We’ll finish this quest later, so don’t wait on respawns, just clear through the town.

2. Go west to the Infectis scar by passing Corin’s crossing by the south side. Go down the Infectis Scar at (44,68), then go to (49,59) where you’ll find the “Shattered Sword of Marduk”, as marked on the map. It looks like this:

Make sure you kill all the Cannibal Ghouls you find in the house and to free their spirit. You should also check the other house on the opposite side of the street, it probably has a couple of ghouls inside.

Once you got Augustus’s Receipt Book, go back to Augustus and turn in the quest.

a59sk6.jpg

1. Go back to the Plaguewoods, kill Cannibal Ghouls until you finish [55] Defenders of Darrowshire while going east.

2. Go further east to Zul’Mashar (64,24).

Clear the way up the slope.

==Tip== Death Grip the scouts and Chains of Ice them, it prevents them from getting help, making this step much less annoying.

Keep clearing the way and you’ll soon face a big pyramid. At it’s base you should see some tombs with some trolls roaming about them. One of them is Infiltrator Hameya.

Pull him and kill him, then loot Hameya’s Key.

3. Clear your way out of Zul’Mashar then go southeast to Northdale, take a dive in the pool which is just south of Northdale. Clear the elementals in the way. At (71,33) underwater, next to a cage you should see a white flag with a blue runed on it named Symbol of Lost Honor:

Go to the top floor and engrave a Rune of Cinderglacier to your weapon.

Fly down to Light’s Hope Chapel. Turn in [56] Heroes of Darrowshire, don’t get the follow up.

Fly to Chillwind Camp, turn in [55] A Plague Upon Thee.

Hearthstone to Stormwind.

Go to Stormwind Keep and turn in [62] The Blightcaller Cometh at King Varian Wrynn, don’t take the follow up.

Ride to the Stormwind Harbor, go to the southern docks and take the boat to Auberdine in Darkshore.

Once in Auberdine, fly Rut’theran Village and then ride to Darnassus.

In Darnassus, find Mathrengyl Bearwalker in the Cenarion Enclave (35,8.5).

Turn in [56] Glyphed Oaken Branch.

You should be close to level 61 now.

WoW WotLK Classic Horde Death Knight 55-61 Leveling Guide

Get the quest [55] In Service Of The Lich King. I suggest to zoom out your minimap to the maximum, that way you’ll see the yellow “?” from far away on your minimap.

Go northwest to Instructor Razuvious, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] The Emblazoned Runeblade.

Now look for glowing weapon rack like the one in the picture below:

55sk1.jpg

Right-click it to loot a Battle-worn Sword. Open your inventory and right-click the sword while standing next to a runeforge:

55sk2.jpg

Go back to Instructor Razuvious, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Runeforging: Preparation For Battle.

Go to the nearest runeforge, open your spellbook and click on runeforging:

55sk3.jpg

Engrave your weapon with a Rune of Cinderglacier.

Go back to Instructor Razuvious, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] The Endless Hunger.

Now time for our first fight. It’s pretty straight forward, use your attacks in this order:


Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Blood Strike –> Blood Strike –> Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Death Coil –> Restart the cycle

If one of your abilities get dodged or misses, keep re-casting it until it works. Your target must always have both the Icy Touch and the Plague Strike disease on before you use Blood Strike on them, that way you get the maximum damage out of Blood Strike.


Go down in the pit, right-click an Acherus Soul Prison, wait for the Unworthy Initiate to become attackable and kill it.

Go back to Razuvious, turn in and get the follow up [55] The Eye Of Acherus.

Go to The Lich King, turn in and get the follow up [55] Death Comes From On High.

To the left and right of The Lich King you should find an Eye of Acherus Control Mechanism. Right-click it.

Your ability bar will be replaced by a new bar with the eye’s abilities.

After a short trip down, you’ll get control on the Eye of Acherus. First, rise higher in the air to be out of firing range of any scarlet mob and then use Ability #3 to become invisible.

After that, find the first location we’re going to analyze: the New Avalon Forge.

55sk4.jpg

Very easy to spot thanks to the red arrow floating over it.

Use Ability #2 and try to target as many scarlet npcs as you can. This will summon ghouls on each of them to distract them while you use Ability #1 to analyze the building.

When done, rise up in the air and go invisible again. If the Eye of Acherus is low on health, you can wait a little for his HPs to regen.

On to the next building, just south of the forge, you’ll find The Scarlet Hold. Apply the same strategy.

Directly west you’ll find the New Avalon Town Hall, analyze it:

55sk5.jpg

Finally go directly south and you’ll find the Chapel of the Crimson Flame:

55sk6.jpg

Analyze it and the quest should be complete.

Use Ability #5 and you’ll be back to your character. Turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] The Might of the Scourge.

A few paces behind The Lich King you’ll find a glowing pink teleporter. Step on it and you’ll be teleported to another floor.

Go northwest to Highlord Darion Mograine, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Report To Scourge Commander Thalanor.

Equip your new necklaceBladed Ebon Amulet

Further northwest is another quest called [55] The Power of Blood, Frost and Unholy, complete it immediately.

Go back to the balcony (not the teleporter) and turn in the quest at Scourge Commander Thalanor. Get the follow up [55] The Scarlet Harvest.

Right-click one of the Scourge Gryphons and fly down to Death’s Breach.

Go a few paces south and turn in the quest at Prince Valanar, get the follow up [55] If Chaos Drives, Let Suffering Hold The Reins.

3 other quests should have appeared on your minimap now, get them all.

First thing, we’re gonna look around the camp for Death Knight Initiates:

55sk7.jpg

Right-click them, challenge them to a duel and defeat them. You can also challenge other players, but that’s more difficult. Repeat this 5 times. Use the food you have in your inventory if you’re low HP after a duel.

When done, go turn in [55] Death’s Challenge. You’ll get one talent point to spend as a reward. We’ll only put our points in the Unholy tree for now.


Spend your first talent point in Morbidity.


Time to kill stuff, finally!

sk55circuit1.jpg

1. Go south down the path and then southeast towards the yellow “!” on your minimap while killing everything on the way and also picking up Saronite Arrows.

55sk8.jpg

When you get to the yellow “!“, you’ll be infront of a mailbox with a scroll on top.

55sk9.jpg

Right-click the scroll and complete the quest. You can then open the mailbox and get a book from it. It’s just lore though, you can read it if you want. I personally read it quickly and destroyed it, it can’t be sold.

After that go back to killing stuff and looting Sardonite Arrows until you finish both quests.

2. Once done, go to the stables, which are located on the northeastern part of the field.

Go to the nearest horse you can find and right-click it to mount it, then go back to Death’s Breach, you can use the horse’s Ability #2 to gallop.

3. Go to Salanar the Horseman, he stands right in the middle of Death’s Breach, then use the horse’s Ability #1 to deliver it to Salanar.

Turn in [55] Grand Theft Palomino and get the follow up [55] Into the Realm of Shadows.


Put your new talent point in Morbidity.


You’ll be in the shadow world after accepting this quest. Go down back in the fields and look for a Dark Rider of Acherus, kill it and then right-click his horse.

Ride back to Death’s Breach and once there, use Ability #1, Horseman’s Call. A few seconds later you’ll be back in the normal world.

unmounticon.jpg Click on the “Leave Vehicle” button, go to Salanar the Horseman and turn in the quest.

You can now summon your own Deathcharger. To do that, open the character window (“c” key), go to the Pets tab, drag the Acherus Deathcharger icon on a free action bar slot. Click it and voila!

Turn in:

  • [55] If Chaos Drives, Let Suffering Hold The Reins
  • [55] Tonight We Dine in Havenshire

It doesn’t matter which cloak you pick, I personally like the one with frost resistance, because it fits the rest of the equipment better.

Get the quest [55] Gothik the Harvester from Prince Valanar. Go to Gothik the Harvester and turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] The Gift That Keeps On Giving.

You should be level 56. Equip your newly acquired items:

CloakShroud of the North Wind
RelicSigil of the Dark Rider
RingValanar’s Signet Ring


Spend your talent points as follows:


Level 56

sk55circuit2.jpg

1. This time go down the path north then east and enter the Havenshire Mine (58,31).

56sk0.jpg Search your inventory for the Gift of the Havester and put it on a hotbar.

Use the Gift of the Harvester on Scarlet Miners. Repeat this step until you have 5 ghouls under your control.

Go back to Gothik the Harvester, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] An Attack Of Opportunity.

Equip your new trinketSoul Harvester’s Charm


Put your talent point in Ravenous Dead.


2. Go to Prince Valanar, turn in the quest and get the follow up [55] Massacre at Light’s Point. Now comes a fun quest, I suggest reading the rest of point 2. before proceeding.

Outside of Havenshire Mine you’ll find an Inconspicuous Mine Car.

56sk1.jpg

When you right-click it, you’ll be taken to a ship and will be facing 3 Scarlet Cannons.

56sk2.jpg

If you right-click one of them, you’ll take control of it and will this window will appear instead of your hotbars:

56sk3.jpg

Ability #1 is your main ability, chain use it to kill as many Scarlet NPCs as you can. To aim, hold your mouse right-click button and move your mouse.

Ability #2 is to protect you. Whenever a few Scarlet NPCs make it close to you, use ability #2 to repell them.

Ability #5 is to escape. Use it once you’ve killed 100 Scarlet Defenders.

==TIP== Aim for the bridge leading to the ship every 2 or 3 shot to prevent them to get to you. If they do, there’s still Ability #2 anyway.

3. You should be more than ready now, go right-click the Inconspicuous Mine Car and have fun!

4. Go back to Prince Valanar, turn in [55] Massacre at Light’s Point, get the follow up [55] Victory At Death’s Breach!

Right-click on a Scourge Gryphon to fly back to Acherus.

Go to Highlord Darion Mograine, turn in and get the follow up [55] The Will Of The Lich King.

Equip your new items:


Spend talent points as follows:


Go to Lord Thorval (in the room just northwest of Mograine) and train your new skills:

Pestilence, Death Strike and Raise Dead.


Now things are starting to get interesting.

Raise Dead: Not much to explain, it summons a ghoul who fights for you. It’s great, the ghoul can take quite a lot of pain and deals a decent amount too.

Pestilence: this skill is very useful when fighting multiple enemies. Whenever you fight several enemies at the same time, choose a target and do this:

Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Pestilence

This will spread all the diseases to other nearby enemies, as long as they are close enough (about 20 yards).

Death Strike: Incredibly good skill. You’re gonna be much harder to kill from now on. The damage you do with it heals you once for each disease on your target. Needless to say, it’s better to use it after having diseased your target with Icy Touch and Plague Strike.

So from now on your attack cycle should look like this:

Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Death Strike –> Blood Strike –> Blood Strike –> Death Coil –> Death Strike –> Death Strike –> Blood Strike –> Blood Strike –> Death Coil –> Restart cycle

It might seem complicated, but it’s actually not. You’ll see that this rotation makes perfect sense as it uses all your cooldowns whenever they are up. You can try it on the practice dummies in Death’s Breach, close to the gryphon landing site. Of course, your enemies will die before you finish the full cycle most of the time, but that’s ok. Just try to get used to this, because dps cycles are a big part of the Death Knight class, and being able to perform them well will determine if you’re a good DK or a mediocre DK.


Go back to the Balcony and take a Gryphon ride down. Go to Prince Valanar, he’s at a new location closer to the cliff.

Turn in and get the follow up [55] The Crypt of Remembrance.

Go sell and repair at Hargus the Gimp (53,35), a few steps infront of Prince Valanar . Also buy some Corpse Dust from him (about 5), this will allow you to summon a ghoul even when there’s no corpse available.

sk55circuit3.jpg

1. Mount up, ride south/southeast to Noth the Plaguebringer (56,52). Take his quest [55] The Plaguebringer’s Request.

2. You should see a yellow “?” on your minimap southwest of where you are. Go there, enter the Crypt of Rememberance (54,58) and turn in the quest.

Get [55] Nowhere To Run And Nowhere To Hide and [55] Lambs To The Slaughter.

3. Get out of the crypt and go southeast to New Avalon.

Kill everything on your way from now on. On your left-hand side after entering you should see a big building, the New Avalon Inn (58,65).

Go inside and go down to the basement cellar where you’ll find an Empty Cauldron, loot it.

56sk4.jpg

4. Northeast of the inn you’ll find the New Avalon Forge (61,61).

Enter the building and loot an Iron Chain.

56sk5.jpg

5. Mount up and ride southwest to the New Avalon Town Hall, a big building with a clock tower (53,71).

Go inside the Town Hall, kill Mayor Quimby and loot the New Avalon Registry.

56sk6.jpg

Now just go out and kill stuff until you finish [55] Lambs To The Slaughter. You’ll find all the Citizens you need right outside the town hall (have some fun with pestilence).

Mount up and ride out of New Avalon.

First stop by Noth the Plaguebringer, turn in and get the follow up [55] Noth’s Special Brew.

Go to the cauldron next to him and turn in the quest to get 5 of those cool potions. Feel free to overuse them, we’ll get a lot more later on. You should put them on a hotbar, ready for use, just in case (but to tell you the truth, you won’t be needing them much unless you’re suicidal :P).

Go to the Crypt of Rememberance and turn in both quests, get the follow up [55] How To Win Friends And Influence Enemies

Equip your new items:


Spend your talent points as follows:

==Note== On a Pale Horse is a great talent. You have to realize that until level 77 in Northrend, you won’t be able to use a flying mount while leveling, so you will stick to ground mounts for 21 more levels starting from now. Now imagine how much time you’re going to save with this 20% extra mount speed. A very significant amount, trust me 😛 The fear and stun 20% reduction is also a nice bonus.


sk55circuit4.jpg

1. Go back in New Avalon, to the Scarlet Hold, it’s that big casern on the east side of New Avalon. When there, open the Ornately Jeweled Box in your inventory and equip the two One-Handed Swords. Then just start attacking people in there until one of them tells you what you want to know.

2. Go back to the Crypt of Rememberance, turn in and get the follow up [55] Behind Scarlet Lines.

Equip your new ring (instead of the green one of course): Keleseth’s Signet Ring


Spend your talent points as follows:


3. Get out, mount up and ride a long way south to the Scarlet Tavern (56,80). Go to the upper floor and turn in, get the follow up [55] The Path Of The Righteous Crusader. Also get the other quest [55] Brothers in Death and get out of this building.

4. Ride northeast to the Scarlet Hold. Clear the way up to the upper floor and go to the central main room.

On a table there you’ll find the New Avalon Patrol Schedule.

56sk7.jpg

Loot it.

After that, go down all the way to the cellar basement, where you will find Koltira Deathweaver. Turn in your quest, but before you get the follow up, read the next few lines.

Koltira will create an anti-magic barrier, you must fight inside it as much as possible to reduce the damage you’ll take from the acolytes. You can pull them inside with Death Grip as well. After about 2 minutes, High Inquisitor Valroth will come. Pull him inside the barrier with Death Grip and kill him. Mission accomplished. Don’t forget you have potions if things go wrong.

You’re more than ready now, so get the follow up [55] Bloody Breakout and protect Koltira. It doesn’t matter if you die, you’ll get resurected, but Koltira must survive.

Once Valroth is dead, his remains will appear on the floor:

56sk8.jpg

Right-click them to loot Valroth’s Head.

5. Go back to the Scarlet Tavern. Turn in both quests, get the follow up [55] A Cry For Vengeance!

Equip your new items:

You should be level 57 by now.

Level 57


Spend your talent points as follows:

==Note== You just became godlike. The biggest upgrade here is Master of Ghouls. Now you’ll always have a ghoul fighting for you, until it dies. And if it dies, just re-summon it. You’ll also be able to control your ghoul from now on and will get a pet bar:

ghoulpetbar.jpg

Controlling your ghoul properly will be a nice advantage for you in the future. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your ghoul.

Ghoul Control Tips:

  1. Use Key bindings. The default keybindings are CTRL-1, CTRL-2, etc. I personally prefer to change them to SHIFT-1, SHIFT-2, etc, because I find reaching for CTRL plus a number is uncomfortable. That’s up to you, you can bind any key you like for your pet bar. If you want to change your pet bar key bindings, go to options > key bindings and change your Secondary Action Button 1, 2, 3, etc.Only 4 buttons are very important to bind anyway: Attack, Follow, Gnaw and Huddle.Gnaw is your pet’s stun, it’s great to interrupt spells and also to stop things from running. Use it smartly.
    Huddle is a defensive boost for 10 seconds, use it to preserve your ghoul’s health when he’s taking a lot of damage.
  2. Level your First Aid skill. It might not be very useful for now, but you’ll see in the future, when you solo difficult elites for certain quests, your ghoul will need healing after the fights, and trust me, Death Coil isn’t always enough. So instead, bandage your ghoul! Anyway, leveling first aid also gives you achievement points, so might as well get it done

Summon Gargoyle:

An amazing skill. It’s a big dps burst, which can last a total of 1 minute if you provide enough runic power. Here are a few tips:

  1. Build up 100 Runic power before activating this skill
  2. Don’t even think about using Death Coil while your gargoyle is up. If your runic power goes down to zero, your gargoyle despawns
  3. Use it at the right time, like when about to fight an elite, it’s kind of a waste in most other cases

Dirge:

Thanks to dirge, you’ll get more runic power now, that means you’ll have to try to squish in some extra death coils in your attack cycles. If you pay attention to your cooldowns, you’ll see there’s often room for an extra death coil here and there during your cycles.


sk55circuit5.jpg

1. Go southwest to the Chapel of the Crimson Flame (53,81). Find Knight Commander Plaguefist, turn in and get the follow up [55] A Cry For Vengeance!

Go inside the long house and find the NPC corresponding to your race. (If you’re orc, find the orc called Kug Ironjaw. If you are Troll, find the troll called Iggy Darktusk, etc.)

Watch that NPC make his speech and you’ll have to kill it at the end. Put your ghoul on passive mode, because you won’t get the kill credit if the ghoul does more damage than you.

Go back to Knight Commander Plaguefist, turn in and get the follow up [55] A Sort of Homecoming.

2. Go back to the Scarlet Tavern, turn in [55] A Sort of Homecoming and get [55] Ambush at the Overlook.

Equip your new trinket (instead of the Insignia of the Scourge): Signet of the Dark Brotherhood


Spend your talent points as follows:

Reaping: This converts your blood runes into death runes when you use Blood Strike or Blood Boil (which we’ll get soon). A Death Rune is a universal rune, it counts as any type of rune. Why is that good? For many reasons. It allows you to have more flexibility in your cycles. It allows you for example to re-cast your Bone Shield in fight without messing up your Death Strike cycles. Or better, if you convert both your blood runes into death runes, you’ll then be able to use Death Strike 3 times in a row, and that’s great when you’re having a tough fight and need a lot of lifedrain. Later on, you’ll be using Scourge Strike instead of Death Strike most of the time, and you’ll understand how valuable reaping is, because Scourge Strike is the kind of ability you want to spam as often as possible 😉


3. Mount up and ride east to the Scarlet Overlook (62,77).

Find a clear spot near the path.

56sk9.jpg Look for a Makeshift Cover in your inventory

Right-click it, the Scarlet Courrier will appear, kill it and loot everything he has.

Go back to the Scarlet Tavern, turn in and get [55] A Meeting With Fate.

4. You should now be disguised as a Scarlet Courrier. Get out, mount up and ride to the Scarlet Overlook.

This time take the path south leading down to King’s Harbor, where you will find High General Abbendis (65,84).

Turn in and get [55] The Scarlet Onslaught Emerges.

5. Go back to the Scarlet Tavern, turn in the quest, but before your get the follow up, read the following paragraph.


You should have 4 talent points now, spend them as follows:


==Optional== Before going back to turn in this quest, I recommend killing some more Scarlet NPCs to get Crusader Skulls, which we you can turn in at the cauldron for extra health potions. 20 Crusader Skulls = 5 Potions, and you can carry a maximum of 20 potions. I personally farm 60 Skulls, and then I get out of this place with 20 Potions (including the 5 we got from quest earlier). The fastest way to get skulls is to kill the citizens outside of the town hall, it’s even easier if you put your ghoul on aggressive mode. However those don’t give exp, so you might want to kill other things, it will just take longer. After you have 60 skulls be sure to go back to the cauldron to turn in and get your 20 Potions *BEFORE* going back to the Scarlet Tavern. If you return to Acherus without turning the skulls in there is no way to turn them in later.

Got your 20 potions? Let’s move on then, go back to the Scarlet Tavern.

Get the follow up [55] Scarlet Armies Approach… Orbaz Bloodbane will then open a portal for you, take it and you’ll be back in Acherus.

Go to Highlord Darion Mograine, turn in and get [55] The Scarlet Apocalypse.

Equip your new pauldronsBlood-soaked Saronite Plated Spaulders

Don’t worry about talents for now, we are not gonna fight for a while.

Go see your trainer, buy Frost Presence and Mind Freeze. Don’t waste money on the rest, Rune of Spellbreaking/Shattering is not useful to us at this point. Of course, if you’re rich, feel free to buy those skills anyway.


Frost Presence: That’s the tanking stance, pretty much like the defensive stance of warriors. We won’t use it much in this guide, it’s mostly for tanking in instances. However, it’s also useful when you’re running away from something, as it increases your armor and spell mitigation, making you much much more survivable. Other than that, stay in blood stance.

Mind Freeze: Our first spell interruption (well argueably the second, because you can interrupt spells with Death Grip too, but that’s not its main purpose). It doesn’t trigger the global cooldown, which is great, because that means you can cast it at any moment without disrupting your attack rotations.

Anyway, enough talking, let’s get back to business.


Take a gryphon ride back to Death’s Breach. Go talk to The Lich King, get the follow up [55] An End to All Things.

57sk0.jpg Look in your inventory for a Horn of the Frostbrood.

Right-click it. You’ll climb on a Frostwyrm and your action bars will be replaced by this:

57sk1.jpg
  • Ability #1 is your attack. It’s just like with the canon we used before, aim by holding your mouse right-click button.
  • Ability #2 is to refill the Wyrm’s mana. Should you need to do that, go find a lone Scarlet Defender and use it on him (have to be within 15 yards range).

You need to kill 150 Scarlet Soldiers (a piece of cake) and to destroy 10 Ballistas. The ballistas are a little more tricky, because their javelins kinda hurt so you must dodge them.

It’s quite straight forward though, you simply have to strafe to the left or to the right every time after you shoot, and the javelin will miss you. Like on the screenshot below:

57sk2.jpg

Basically it goes like this: Shoot –> Strafe left –> Shoot –> Strafe Right –> Repeat till ballista is destroyed.

For the 150 Scarlet Soldiers, go behind the walls of New Avalon, you’ll find big packs of them.

When done with that, fly back to The Lich King.

unmounticon.jpg Click on the “Leave Vehicle” button and turn in the quest, get the follow up [55] The Lich King’s Command.

Equip your new helmGreathelm of the Scourge Champion


Spend your talent points as follows:

You are now officially unkillable.

Bone Shield: A great ability for just 1 Unholy Rune. Re-cast it after every fight if possible. Not only will you take less damage, but you’ll also do more while having this shield on.

Desecration: +5% damage and slows down enemies around you, which is great to escape if things go wrong. We mostly take it for the 5% damage boost.

Scourge Strike: Rejoice. Expect a big improvement in your damage output. This replaces Death Strike in your usual rotation. Only use Death Strike when you need healing.


sk55circuit6.jpg

1. Mount up, go northwest through a tunnel, you’ll then be in the Noxious Glade (Eastern Plaguelands).

2. Go west and take the path going down at (40,20), all the way to Browman Mill, where you’ll find Scourge Commander Thalanor (34,30). Turn in and get the follow up [55] The Light of Dawn.

Now all you have to do is take part in a cool event, follow Highlord Darion Mograine and fight with him. You don’t actually have to fight, but I recommend doing it for fun, because you get a buff which makes you almost invincible and also makes you hit like a truck. Don’t be too reckless though, only attack the Defenders of the Light there, avoid the named NPCs such as Korfax, Duke Zverenhoff, etc.

At the end of the script, you can turn in your quest at Highlord Darion Mograine. Choose Sword or Axe, it doesn’t matter (pick axe if your race is Orc though).

Get the follow up [55] Taking Back Acherus.

Open your spell book and cast Death Gate (Unholy). Click the gate to be teleported back to Acherus. I suggest not lingering here too long, because the script will reset soon and all those imba argent dawn NPCs will soon be back to agressive mode and make quick work of you 😛

After teleporting, turn in your quest and get the follow up [55] The Battle For The Ebon Hold.

Equip your new weapon if you haven’t done that already.


Spend your new talent points as follows:


Take the pink teleporter up, kill 10 Scourge and help killing Patchwerk.

Take the teleporter back, turn in the quest at Mograine and get the follow up [55] Warchief’s Blessing.

Behind Mograine to the left you should see a portal to Orgrimmar, take it.

In Orgrimmar, run (yes, you can’t use your mount here for now) to Thrall in the Valley of Wisdom.

Turn in the quest [55] Warchief’s Blessing. Now you can mount and people will stop throwing bananas at you.

1. Visit the auction house, make space in your bags. Also get some better bags, because the 12-slot bags are gonna be a bother in the long run. However, if you’re low on cash, you must at least keep 3gold 50silver to buy your new skills.

You should be level 58 by now.

Level 58

Death Gate back to Acherus. Visit one of the trainers, get Blood Boil and Chains of Ice.


Chains of Ice: A very useful skill to prevent enemies from running away. Can also be used to kite or to escape.

Blood Boil: This will basically replace blood strike when taking on multiple targets.

So from now on, against multiple enemies, your dps cycle will be:

Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Pestilence –> Blood Boil –> Death Strike –> Death Coil –> Death Strike –> Blood Boil –> Blood Boil –> Death Strike –> Death Coil –> Death Strike –> Blood Boil –> Blood Boil –> Stuff should be dead.

Spend you talent point as follows:


Take the pink teleporter up. Go to a runeforge and engrave a Rune of Cinderglacier to your weapon. Also buy some Corpse Dust while you’re here.

Take the teleporter back down.

Fly to The Undercity.

Go to the Apothecarium and pay a visit to Lady Sylvanas. get the quest [56]The Champion of the Banshee Queen.

hs.jpg Go to the innkeeper and make The Undercity your home location.

Ride out of the Undercity, follow the road east until you find the Bulwark (83,68).

Get the quest Argent Dawn Commission and turn it in instantly. You’ll get an Argent Dawn Commission. When you kill undeads while having this trinket equiped, you can collect Scourgestones from their bodies. This helps you to gain reputation with the Argent Dawn.

This faction is really old though so there’s no interesting reward for you. I suggest destroying the trinket (you can get another one at any time in the future anyway).

Get [53]Scarlet Diversions from High Executor Derrington.

Right-click the Box of Incendiaries next to him and loot the Flame in a Bottle.

Wait for him to come down, you can’t kill him when he’s on top, he has 3 guards with him there.

Once you have the other half charm, go back to Janice Felstone, right click on the other-half-charm in your inventory. Turn in the quest.

 to Acherus. Visit the trainer, buy Blood Strike (Rank 2) and Strangulate.


Blood Strike (Rank 2): More damage, cheers.
Strangulate: A 5 second silence, can be cast from 30 yard range. Great against casters.

Spend your talent point:


hdk58img3.jpg

1. Ride west/southwest to Corin’s Crossing (57,60).

Whenever you kill a Gibbering Ghoul, a Spirit of Darrowshire will appear, right-click it to free it. We’ll finish this quest later though so don’t wait on respawns.

Kill every undead you find there until you have 7 Living Rot. You must be quick because the living rot only lasts 10 minutes.

hdk58img6.jpg As soon as you have 7, right-click the Mortar and Pestle from your inventory, you should receive some Coagulated Rot.

Hearthstone to the Undercity and ride back to the Bulwark.

Turn in [58]Return to the Bulwark. Get the quest [55]A Plague Upon Thee from Mickey Levine. Go to High Executor Derrington and turn in the quest “Mission Accomplished!“.

a59sk2.jpg

1. Ride southeast to Sorrow Hill and find Marlene Redpath in the house (49,78).

Turn in [56] Auntie Marlene and get the follow up [56] A Strange Historian.

2. Search the graveyard just north of the house where Marlene Redpath is, look for “Joseph Redpath’s Monument” among the graves (49,76). Click the grave and get Joseph’s Wedding Ring.

3. Go back towards Chillwind Camp and take the other path to Andorhal, go inside the Ruins of Andorhal by the western entrance.

Inside Andorhal go to the house to the north, it’s the only house around with a floor and not totally destroyed (39,68). Inside the house go to the 2nd floor, in one of the rooms you’ll find Chromie. Turn in [56] A Strange Historian, get the follow up [56] The Annals of Darrowshire. Also ge the other quest [56] A Matter of Time.

4. Go to the northern gate of Andorhal, and east of the first watch tower you’ll find two wooden silos (45,62) which look like this:

woodensilo.jpg

Get close to a silo and click your Temporal Displacer (the icon is actually a horn).

1 to 3 lvl 57 worms will spawn and attack you. Kill them. Move on to the next silo and repeat. Keep doing that until you have 10 Temporal Parasites slain. The worms only appear when the silo is sparkling blue. They take a while to sparkle again after you use them. However there’s 3 more silos just a bit more to the east in case you need.

5. Go back to Chromie, turn in [56] A Matter of Time and get the follow up [56] Counting Out time.

Now what you have to do is check destroyed houses in Andorhal and look for Small Lockboxes like this:

smalllockbox.jpg

Loot the Andorhal Watch from it. Keep doing this until you have 5 Andorhal Watches.

a59sk3.jpg

1. Go to the town hall (with a tower clock) which is in the middle of Andorhal, close to where Araj the Summoner is, you can sneak in the town hall without having to fight any of the bunch of mobs around it, just hug the walls.

Inside the town hall you’ll find several “Musty Tome” lying on the floor. When you click one, there is a chance you will find the Annals of Darrowshire, but there is a higher chance that you will get a “Ruined Tome” and 1 or 2 level 57 mobs will attack you. They give no loot and no exp. Hoewever there is a trick to know which tome is the right one. There is a slight graphical difference. The pages of the fake tomes have two-tone colored pages, lightbrown and white, like this one:

wrongtome.jpg

The good tome looks “newer”, and its pages only have one color tone, like this one:

goodtome.jpg

You can easily see the difference if you zoom in 1st person view and put your mouse pointer over the books to highlight them. Loot the Annals of Darrowshire.

2. Time for a little challenge. Let’s solo Araj the Summoner. Here’s how:

Fight your way around Araj, so that you end up on the east side of him, like on the screenshot below.

59sk0.jpg

We’ll pull from here, and you have to pull all the stuff I marked with a dot, because if you don’t, they’ll add when you attack Araj, and we want him solo.

  • 1. The first pull will be 4 mobs at least, some of them are Skeletal Acolytes, you need to kill those first because they heal. Pull one with Death Grip, use Strangulate on another so that he comes in your melee range. Icy Touch –> Plague Strike –> Pestilence –> Blood Boil –> Death Strike. Etc.
  • 2. Next, pull the 3 Spectral Attendants. This should be easy.
  • 3. North of Araj there should be a Skeletal Warlord and two ghouls. Pull those carefully, it should be an easy fight too.
  • 4. South of Araj should be 1 Skeletal Warlod and 1 Ghoul. Pull those and then you’ll only have Araj the Summoner left to kill.

Pull Araj from this spot, to make sure you don’t get jumped by respawns or by a patrol while fighting him:

59sk1.jpg

As you can see on the screenshot, I forgot to pull one ghoul, it will add when I pull Araj. However, I managed because Death Knights are imba. Don’t do this at home though!

When you’re ready, pull Araj with Death Grip, then Strangulate him and pull him backwards a little more (to where I stand on the screenshot below), to be 100% safe from the respawns/patrols. Then just fight him normally, interrupt his spells with Mind Freeze and use Summon Gargoyle as soon as you have 100 Runic Power. You also have potions if things go wrong.

59sk2.jpg

Loot Araj’s Phylactery.

3. Go back to Chromie, turn in [56] Counting Out time. The Attuned Dampener you get as a reward is only useable on Araj the Summoner, so you don’t care about that, destroy it. Yes I’m evil and made you kill Araj without using this on him, but it really wasn’t necessary, was it? 😛

Turn in [56] The Annals of Darrowshire, get the follow up [56] Brother Carlin.

Now you should also have finished [57] Skeletal Fragments and be close to finish [60] Bonescythe Digs. Kill some more skeletons in Andorhal until you have 30 Bone Fragments.

Get out of Andorhal by the north gate, then go east till Thondroril River and ride north to Tirion Fordring (7,43).

Turn in:

  • [56] Demon Dogs
  • [56] Blood Tinged Skies
  • [56] Carion Grubbage

Get the follow up [56] Redemption.

Right-click Tirion and go through his text.
Turn in the quest and get the follow up [57] Of Forgotten Memories.

You should be level 60 by now.


Put your talent point in Unholy Blight.

Unholy Blight: Our ultimate. It’s basically extra AoE power, great for taking on multiple enemies. However, 60 Runic Power is a bit pricy, so it’s not worth casting Unholy Blight on easy fights (single target or two monsters only), simply because by the time you build up 60 Runic Power, one of your target will already be dead and the other one will follow quickly, and the majority of your Unholy Blight will be wasted while you run to the next monster. Use it only on big fights, 3+ mobs, preferably more. You can chain kill packs of 5,6 or 7 mobs now.

If you want to know how, check out my AoE tutorial videos:

How to AoE with a Death Knight


Mount up and go to the Eastern Plaguelands.

Ride southeast to the Marris Stead. Turn in:

  • [58]To Kill With Purpose
  • [58]Un-Life’s Little Annoyances
  • [60]The Ranger Lord’s Behest

Get:

  • [60] Duskwing, Oh How I Hate Thee…
  • [60] The Corpulent One
a59sk4.jpg

1. Go southeast to the Undercroft, which is directly south of the Marris Stead.

Go inside the crypt (22,78), clear the way down, kill Zaeldarr the Outcast and loot his head.

In the same room look for a “Torn Scroll” on the floor, click it and get the quest [60] Hameya’s Plea.

2. Go back to Tiron Fordring, turn in [56] Of Forgotten Memories, get the follow up [58] Of Lost Honor.

Death Gate to Acherus. Visit your trainer, train Rune of LichbaneDeath and Decay and Plague Strike (Rank 2).


Rune of Lichbane: This will be great for our final circuits in the plaguelands, as there are plenty of undeads just waiting to be whacked. Go engrave it on your weapon (unless you bought a better enchant like Executioner). Also buy some Corpse Dust and sell junk while you’re up there.

Death and Decay: It’s an AoE skill, but it’s not as efficient as the Pestilence/Blood Boil/Death Strike combo. It’s main use is to build a lot of threat when you’re tanking several mobs.

  • [60] Bonescythe Digs
  • [56] Brother Carlin, get [57] Villains of Darrowshire and [56] Heroes of Darrowshire

hdk58img4.jpg

1. Go back to the Plaguewoods, kill Cannibal Ghouls until you finish [55] Defenders of Darrowshire while going east.

WoW WotLK Classic Alliance 70-80 Leveling Guide: 77-78 Zul’Drak

You should be level 77 by now, in which case before you enter Zul’Drak, you should learn Cold Weather Flying, and purchase your epic flying mount if you have enough gold for it, cost: 5,000g training + 1,000g Cold Weather training + 100g for the mount.

(Optional but Highly Recommended – Group) A note as you enter Zul’Drak – you may remember the Ring of Blood quest series from Nagrand. In Zul’Drak, there’s once again a series of arena fights which is just like the Ring of Blood – its a series called The Amphitheater of Anguish. As soon as you enter the zone, look out for people looking for more for the “Ring of Blood” or “Amphitheater” or “Arena” quests. Find a group of five people with a tank and healer.

The process of making sure the entire group starts and completes the quest together is having one person be the designated quest starter. Have everybody gather around the quest giver, then one person starts the quest, which will allow everyone to start the quest. Then, after making sure everybody’s turned in the quest, the quest starter starts the next quest, and so on and so on.

With a group of five with a tank and a healer, it will be the fastest burst of experience that is in the game, 192,900 XP in just minutes, along with an extremely good weapon, and about 120 Gold!

Then, use Gut Rip and Stunning Force on cooldown. If you use those abilities on cooldown you should win handily.
    • Warp back up to Drakuru and turn in Zero Tolerance.
    • Warp back down. Use the horn to summon Stefan and turn in Hazardous Materials. Get the follow-up Sabotage.
      • Warp back up to Drakuru and get Fuel for the Fire.
    • Warp down and head northeast. Use the Explosive Charges next to 5 Scourgewagons to blow them up.
  3. Use the Scepter of Command on a Bloated Abomination. Run it through the trolls by ordering your pet to attack in sequence the trolls in a camp, and keep using the Flatulate ability in order to stay ahead of them and “kite” them. Gather as many as you can before it dies, then Explode it. Repeat this until you kill 60 Drakkari Skullcrushers. Note: You will not get credit if you explode the abomination while the trolls are knocked down with Flatulate. When you’ve finished gathering as many as you can up, explode without using Flatulate. A good safe number to gather and kill each run is 10.
    • Warp back up to Drakuru and turn in Fuel for the Fire. Get the follow-up Disclosure.
    • Take the portal upwards (step into the upper blue circle in the middle of the room). Open the Musty Coffin and follow Malmortis.

    • NOTE: The following fight is challenging solo! Make sure you have your Scepter of Domination hotkeyed or dragged to a very easy-to-use place first before starting, you will need to use it immediately. Read the entire section before talking to Drakuru.

      Warp back up and talk to Drakuru and tell him you’re ready to join him. When you’re on the upper level, your disguise will start fading. Quickly use the Scepter of Domination on a Brightblood Troll. Send it to attack Drakuru and use its first two damage dealing abilities on cooldown (Concussion Blow and Powerful Strike). In the meantime, you have to run (try strafing in a circle) and avoid the crystals Drakuru throws at you. If you’re low in health, you can use the third ability (Brightblood Infusion) to have your pet heal you. You can and should attack Drakuru as well during the entire fight.

      Your pet does not have enough health to take down Drakuru – you will have to take control of another one right after it dies, then send it to fight Drakuru again. During this time Drakuru will throw shadowbolts at you – use the heal ability of the new troll the moment you get it.

      When Drakuru dies, loot the Drakuru’s Skull and Drakuru’s Last Wish. Use the last wish to leave the necropolis.

      Summon Stefan with the horn and turn in Betrayal.

WoW WotLK Classic Horde 70-80 Leveling Guide: 77-78 Zul’Drak

You should be level 77 by now, in which case before you enter Zul’Drak, you should learn Cold Weather Flying, and purchase your epic flying mount if you have enough gold for it, cost: 5,000g training + 1,000g Cold Weather training + 100g for the mount.

(Optional but Highly Recommended – Group) A note as you enter Zul’Drak – you may remember the Ring of Blood quest series from Nagrand. In Zul’Drak, there’s once again a series of arena fights which is just like the Ring of Blood – its a series called The Amphitheater of Anguish. As soon as you enter the zone, look out for people looking for more for the “Ring of Blood” or “Amphitheater” or “Arena” quests. Find a group of five people with a tank and healer.

The process of making sure the entire group starts and completes the quest together is having one person be the designated quest starter. Have everybody gather around the quest giver, then one person starts the quest, which will allow everyone to start the quest. Then, after making sure everybody’s turned in the quest, the quest starter starts the next quest, and so on and so on.

With a group of five with a tank and a healer, it will be the fastest burst of experience that is in the game, 192,900 XP in just minutes, along with an extremely good weapon, and about 120 Gold! Keep an eye out for groups throughout your entire time in Zul’Drak because there are no pre-requisites. If you find a group, go there and then continue questing where you left off.

      • Warp back up to Drakuru and get Fuel for the Fire.
    • Warp down and head northeast. Use the Explosive Charges next to 5 Scourgewagons to blow them up.
  3. Use the Scepter of Command on a Bloated Abomination. Run it through the trolls by ordering your pet to attack in sequence the trolls in a camp, and keep using the Flatulate ability in order to stay ahead of them and “kite” them. Gather as many as you can before it dies, then Explode it. Repeat this until you kill 60 Drakkari Skullcrushers. Note: You will not get credit if you explode the abomination while the trolls are knocked down with Flatulate. When you’ve finished gathering as many as you can up, explode without using Flatulate. A good safe number to gather and kill each run is 10.
    • Warp back up to Drakuru and turn in Fuel for the Fire. Get the follow-up Disclosure.
    • Take the portal upwards (step into the upper blue circle in the middle of the room). Open the Musty Coffin and follow Malmortis.

    • NOTE: The following fight is challenging solo! Make sure you have your Scepter of Domination hotkeyed or dragged to a very easy-to-use place first before starting, you will need to use it immediately. Read the entire section before talking to Drakuru.

      Warp back up and talk to Drakuru and tell him you’re ready to join him. When you’re on the upper level, your disguise will start fading. Quickly use the Scepter of Domination on a Brightblood Troll. Send it to attack Drakuru and use its first two damage dealing abilities on cooldown (Concussion Blow and Powerful Strike). In the meantime, you have to run (try strafing in a circle) and avoid the crystals Drakuru throws at you. If you’re low in health, you can use the third ability (Brightblood Infusion) to have your pet heal you. You can and should attack Drakuru as well during the entire fight.

      Your pet does not have enough health to take down Drakuru – you will have to take control of another one right after it dies, then send it to fight Drakuru again. During this time Drakuru will throw shadowbolts at you – use the heal ability of the new troll the moment you get it.

      When Drakuru dies, loot the Drakuru’s Skull and Drakuru’s Last Wish. Use the last wish to leave the necropolis.

      Summon Stefan with the horn and turn in Betrayal.

Video[74] The Thane of Voldrune
==Note== If the video was useful to you, please don’t forget to rate it! 😉

After having watched the video you should be more than ready.

Kill the thane and then fly to Venture Bay, as shown in the video.

2. You should be in Venture Bay now.

==Warning== We’re about to do 4 daily pvp quests. If you want to avoid PvP at all costs, skip this part. However please note that [74] Seeking Solvent counts for the zone quest achievement. Those quests are really quickly done and give 20K XP each, so I recommend doing them, even if you dislike pvp.

Get the 4 daily pvp quests:

  • [74] Seeking Solvent
  • [74] Keep Them at Bay!
  • [74] Smoke ‘Em Out
  • [74] Down with Captain Zorma!
a76circuit13.jpg

Tip: Just run in the building, gather them all in one bunch and then use the Smoke Bomb on them.

2. Go to the next two buildings to the west and do the same thing.

==Note== Kill Horde Units on the way

You should be done with [74] Smoke ‘Em Out very quickly if you bomb the 3 buildings.

3. Go southwest and kill Captain Zorna (13.5,80). She stands under a canopy, on the docks next to the westernmost ship.

She’s elite but she’s quite easy for any class.

HP30,000
Avg. Hit on Cloth800
Can be slowed and stunned (haven’t checked fear)

Now Finish [74] Keep Them at Bay! before going to the next step.

4. Go to the middle ship (16,80). It’s the same model as the boat from Booty Bay to Ratchet.

Go inside the cabin and clear the way to the last room.

==Warning== I really mean CLEAR the way. Kill all the Venture Co. in your way, even if you are a stealth class.

Once the way is clear, go to the last room where you should see the Element 115.

a76img27.jpg

Loot it. You’ll get the following debuff:

a76img28.jpg

That means it’s useless to mount or to sprint or anything like that. Just run straight back to the quest NPCs. You have only 3 Minutes to get there.

Go as fast as you can, avoid fights, and turn in [74] Seeking Solvent first.

Then turn in the other 3 quests:

  • [74] Keep Them at Bay!
  • [74] Smoke ‘Em Out
  • [74] Down with Captain Zorma!

Turn in [75] Gavrock, get [75] Runes of Compulsion.

We are really close to Bloodmoon Isle here, so we have the option to do the group quest [75] Hour of the Worg.


Optional[75] Hour of the Worg

This group quest is supposedly soloable by certain classes (Death Knights, Paladins, Hunters, Warlocks, Druids, etc). But it’s of course much easier to get a 2 or 3-man team for it.

So look for a group while following the rest of my guide, and when you find a group, come back to this section.

a76circuit29.jpg

1. Swim northeast to Bloodmoon Isle (83,28).

Once you break the Mind Control, Arugal goes back to Phase 1.

Bring him down to 25% HP and he’ll go to Phase 4.

Phase 4: It’s just like Phase 2, but with 9 adds instead of 3.
Kill the adds, then kill Arugal.

Sasha will show up and help you finish him off during the last phase. After the fight is over, turn in [75] Hour of the Worg.


a76circuit30.jpg

1. Go south to a summoning circle with 4 dwarves Iron Rune-Weavers channeling (79,44):

==Note== Kill Drakkari Protectors and Drakkari Oracles on the way while going north.

2. Further north you’ll find an entrance to the catacombs at (71.5,23).

Look for Drakkari Canopic Jars:

a76img49.jpg

Loot 5 of them.

3. Go deeper in the catacombs until you see a yellow “!” on your minimap (69.5,17.5). If there’s no “!” on the minimap, it means someone else is doint the escort quest, so you’ll have to wait a little.

Go to that room and you’ll find Drakkari Tablets in a corner:

a76img50.jpg

Loot the Drakkari Tablets.

Now talk to Harrison Jones and start the escort quest [75] Dun-da-Dun-tah!
It’s an easy escort quest as long as you let Harrison Jones tank the elite snake for you.

a76circuit32.jpg

1. After the escort. Kill trolls in the ruins until you’ve looted 5 Sacred Mojo.

Then go to the middle of the Drakil’jin Ruins and find Drakuru’s Brazier, up some broken stairs (71.5,26).

Optional – Instance: Drak’Tharon Keep.

Now we’ve got all the quests for Drak’Tharon Keep:

  • [74] Search and Rescue
  • [75] Cleansing Drak’Tharon

So from now on, if you feel like it, you should look for a group for Drak’Tharon Keep. It’s a very nice instance for level 74-76 players, I recommend it.

If you don’t feel like it or if you don’t find a group, you can abandon [74] Search and Rescue, it can easily be picked up in the future at the Granite Springs, if you change your mind. However, do not abandon [75] Cleansing Drak’Tharon, as it’s rather annoying to get that quest again if you abandon it.


2. Ride southeast back to Harkor’s Camp. Turn in:

  • [75] Therapy
  • [75] Dun-da-Dun-tah!
  • [75] It Takes Guts…, get [75] Drak’aguul’s Mallet
a76circuit33.jpg

You’ll die shortly after, it’s normal.

3. Go inside the catacombs and go deeper until you find Gan’jo.

Turn in [75] See You on the Other Side, get [75] Chill Out, Mon.

Right next to Gan’jo you should see Gan’jo’s Chest:

Talk to Gan’jo and ask him to return you to the living.

Go back to the previous room.

a76img54.jpg Target an Ancient Drakkari Warmonger or Soothsayer and right-click the Snow of Eternal Slumber.

Follow the Ancient Drakkari when it starts to run and then loot the Drakkari Spirit Particles after its mummy burns.

Repeat this 5 times.

  • If it doesn’t work, the giant will attack you but will be in a much weaker state. So you’ll just have to re-use Gavrock’s Runebreaker until it works. Meanwhile, try to stun or to kite the giant until the item cools down.

Keep doing this until you’ve 4 Runed Giants Freed.

You should be level 77 or somewhere around it. If you are ahead, that’s great, keep following the guide normally, don’t skip anything. If you are behind, that’s not a problem either, just keep following the guide normally. You’ll catch up eventually and there will be a lot of extra circuits at the end anyway 😉


Level 77


Optional[75] Ursoc, the Bear God.

Fly to Westfall Brigade Encampment.

a76circuit41.jpg

1. Ride west until a narrow path going up at (51.5,27).

2. Follow this path up and you’ll find Tur Ragepaw (52,24).

Now before you talk to him, read the following paragraph.

Despite being a 3-man group quest, [75] Ursoc, the Bear God is soloable for tank and healer classes if you use the help of Tur Ragepaw correctly.

  • If you are a tank or pet class (Protection Warrior, Paladin, Feral Druid, Death Knight, Hunter, Warlock). Tell Tur Ragepaw “We could use a healer“. He will heal your tank or your pet through the fight.
  • If you are a healer class, tell Tur Ragepaw “Assume your druidic bear form, Tur.” And he will tank for you as long as you keep him alive with your heals.
  • For other classes/specs it might be too difficult to solo the quest. With my mage in quest greens I couldn’t do it. It might be possible for rogues and dps warriors if they ask Tur Ragepaw to assume the role of a healer, depending on gear.

If you can’t solo it, try to look for a group. Duo’ing this quest should be easy.

==WARNING== During the fight, Ursoc will release a small black sludge called Blood of the Old God. Kill it ASAP, it only has 2K HPs, but it’s very annoying (does 1K damage + stun every 5 seconds or so).

a76img68.jpg After the fight is over, target Ursoc’s corpse and use the Purified Ashes of Vordrassil.

==Note== You can also use the Purified Ashes of Vordrassil on the corpse even if someone else killed Ursoc.

If you can’t find a group, just save this quest for when you reach level 80.

WoW WotLK Classic Horde 70-80 Leveling Guide: 75-77 Grizzly Hills

1. Get out of Conquest Hold by the southern gate.

Ride east to to Raider Captain Kronn (26.5,67).

==Warning== This is a PvP Daily Quest. It’s very quick, easy and rewarding, and there most likely won’t even be any PvP involved. So I suggest doing it. However, if you don’t want to have anything to do with PvP, you can skip this and go to the next circuit. This quest doesn’t count towards the zone quest achievement, but it does count for the Daily PvP Quest Achievement: Grizzled Veteran. So it’s up to you!

Get the quest [74] Blackriver Brawl.

2. Go to the isle northeast and kill 10 Alliance Units or Players.

Go back to Raider Captain Kronn, turn in [74] Blackriver Brawl.

  • [74] Gray Worg Hides, get [74] A Minor Substitution
  • [74] A Show of Strength
  • [74] The Flamebinders’ Secret, get [74] The Thane of Voldrune
h76circuit3.jpg

==Warning== PvP Daily Quest Circuit. Skip this circuit and the next one if you don’t want any PvP. However please note that [74] Seeking Solvent counts for the zone quest achievement. Those quests are really quickly done and give 20K XP each, so I recommend doing them, even if you dislike pvp.

1. Ride southwest to Venture Bay. The horde quest hub is on the western side of Venture Bay (11,77).

Get the 4 daily pvp quests:

  • [74] Seeking Solvent

==Note== Kill Alliance Units & Players on the way

You should be done with [74] Smoke ‘Em Out very quickly if you bomb the 3 buildings.

3. Go to the easternmost ship. On the main deck you’ll find Captain Brightwater (17,81.5). He’s elite but should be easily soloable for any class. Just make sure you pull him solo.

HP30,000
Avg. Hit on Cloth800
Can be slowed, stunned, feared.

Now Finish [74] Keep Them at Bay! before going to the next step.

4. Go to the middle ship (16,80). It’s the same model as the boat from Booty Bay to Ratchet.

Go inside the cabin and clear the way to the last room.

==Warning== I really mean CLEAR the way. Kill all the Venture Co. in your way, even if you are a stealth class.

Once the way is clear, go to the last room where you should see the Element 115.

a76img27.jpg

Loot it. You’ll get the following debuff:

a76img28.jpg

That means it’s useless to mount or to sprint or anything like that. Just run straight back to the quest NPCs. You have only 3 Minutes to get there.

Go as fast as you can, avoid fights, and turn in [74] Seeking Solvent first.

Then turn in the other 3 quests:

  • [74] Keep Them at Bay!

  • [74] Crush Captain Brightwater!

1. Ride southeast, cross the bridge and go to Voldrune.

This time clear the way towards the southwestern part of Voldrune, where you should find a chained proto-drake called Flamebringer (26,80).

Now check out my video on how to do this quest, it will make it much easier, as it’s kinda buggy and tricky at the moment. The only difference is that you should fly back to Conquest Hold at the end of the video, instead of towards Venture Bay.

I recommend watching the video in High Quality.

Video[74] The Thane of Voldrune
==Note== If the video was useful to you, please don’t forget to rate it! 😉

After having watched the video you should be more than ready.

Kill the thane and then fly to Conquest Hold.

  • [74] The Darkness Beneath
  • [74] Vordrassil’s Fall

Outside of the Conquest Hold Pit, there should be a new quest available, but don’t take it yet.


Optional[74] The Conquest Pit

[74] The Conquest Pit: Bear Wrestling! is the first step of a chain similar to the Ring of Blood quest chain in Nagrand.

So you will need a group for it. You don’t need a full group though, 3 player is more than enough:

1 healer, 1 tank or pet class and 1 DPS class to make it faster.

==Note== Certain classes might be able to solo the first 3 bosses depending on their gear (Death Knights, Hunters, Warlocks with Voidwalker tanking, Feral Druids, Paladins, Shamans with Earth Elemental Totem up), but not the last 2 quests in the chain.

So I recommend finding a group for it, it’s really much easier and faster that way.

Proceed with the guide and keep on looking for a group for this quest chain.

Once you have a group, have your tank accept the quest first (that way, he’ll get the initial aggro), and check the info below about the bosses you’ll have to fight:

1st bossIronhide. Easy tank and spank battle.
2nd bossTorgg Thundertotem. Do NOT destroy the Fire Nova Totems. They do 8K damage if you destroy them, so leave them alone and MOVE AWAY from them before they explode. The Furbolg can be interrupted and stunned.
3rd bossRustblood. Simple tank and spank. Knockbacks and attacks the 2nd person highest on the threat list. So make sure your tank is awake.
4th bossHorgrenn Hellcleave. He charges people which are out of his melee range randomly. So have everyone stay close to him and he won’t charge anyone. However, he also does a Whirlwind, quickly move away from him when he does that. When he’s done with Whirlwind, go back in close melee range.
5th bossKrenna. This one is actually easier than the previous two bosses. It’s a simple tank and spank fight and you also get help from Gorgonna.


h76circuit11.jpg

1. Ride northwest to Granite Springs (16,47.5). Turn in:

  • [74] Seared Scourge, get [74] Search and Rescue, don’t get the daily quest

h76circuit12.jpg

==Note== From now on, look for Imperial Eagles on your way:

Turn in [75] An Expedient Ally and get [75] Raining Down Destruction.

Optional[75] Ursoc, the Bear God.

a76circuit41.jpg

1. From Camp Oneqwah. Ride northwest until a narrow path going up at (51.5,27).

2. Follow this path up and you’ll find Tur Ragepaw (52,24).

Now before you talk to him, read the following paragraph.

Despite being a 3-man group quest, [75] Ursoc, the Bear God is soloable for tank and healer classes if you use the help of Tur Ragepaw correctly.

  • If you are a tank or pet class (Protection Warrior, Paladin, Feral Druid, Death Knight, Hunter, Warlock). Tell Tur Ragepaw “We could use a healer“. He will heal your tank or your pet through the fight.
  • If you are a healer class, tell Tur Ragepaw “Assume your druidic bear form, Tur.” And he will tank for you as long as you keep him alive with your heals.
  • For other classes/specs it might be too difficult to solo the quest. With my mage in quest greens I couldn’t do it. It might be possible for rogues and dps warriors if they ask Tur Ragepaw to assume the role of a healer, depending on gear.

If you can’t solo it, try to look for a group. Duo’ing this quest should be easy.

==WARNING== During the fight, Ursoc will release a small black sludge called Blood of the Old God. Kill it ASAP, it only has 2K HPs, but it’s very annoying (does 1K damage + stun every 5 seconds or so).

a76img68.jpg After the fight is over, target Ursoc’s corpse and use the Purified Ashes of Vordrassil.

==Note== You can also use the Purified Ashes of Vordrassil on the corpse even if someone else killed Ursoc.

If you can’t find a group, just save this quest for when you reach level 80.

Go turn in [75] Ursoc, the Bear God whenever you’re close to Conquest Hold or when your hearthstone is ready. I won’t tell you when to turn it in in the guide, so it’s up to you.


Go back to Camp Oneqwah.

h76circuit24.jpg

1. Go north of Camp Oneqwah and you’ll find a cave (65,43).

Go inside and you’ll find Anya.

Turn in [75] A Sister’s Pledge.

Sasha will come, get her quest [75] Hour of the Worg.

2. Go northeast to Redwood Trading Post, turn in [75] A Bear of an Appetite.

Talk to Hugh Glass, click on the text saying “Calm down, I want to ask you about the Iron Dwarves and Loken

Let him speak until you get a quest update.

==Reminder== Kill Duskhowl Prowlers and Longhoof Grazers on sight.

a76circuit30.jpg

1. Go east/southeast to a summoning circle with 4 dwarves Iron Rune-Weavers channeling (79,44):

Kill the 4 Dwarves, Overseer Lochli will spawn. Kill him.

3. Go northwest to another summoning circle (72,34).

4. Go northwest to another summoning circle (68,30).

Kill the 4 Dwarves, Overseer Druval will spawn. Kill him.

a76circuit31.jpg

1. Go northeast to Drakil’jin Ruins (71,27).

==Note== Kill Drakkari Protectors and Drakkari Oracles on the way while going north.

2. Further north you’ll find an entrance to the catacombs at (71.5,23).

Look for Drakkari Canopic Jars:

a76img49.jpg

Loot 5 of them.

3. Go deeper in the catacombs until you see a yellow “!” on your minimap (69.5,17.5). If there’s no “!” on the minimap, it means someone else is doint the escort quest, so you’ll have to wait a little.

Go to that room and you’ll find Drakkari Tablets in a corner:

a76img50.jpg

Loot the Drakkari Tablets.

Now talk to Harrison Jones and start the escort quest [75] Dun-da-Dun-tah!
It’s an easy escort quest as long as you let Harrison Jones tank the elite snake for you.

a76circuit32.jpg

1. After the escort. Kill trolls in the ruins until you’ve looted 5 Sacred Mojo.

Then go to the middle of the Drakil’jin Ruins and find Drakuru’s Brazier, up some broken stairs (71.5,26).

a76img13.jpg Right-click Drakuru’s Elixir.

Turn in [75] Voices From the Dust, get [75] Cleansing Drak’Tharon.

Now kill trolls around Drakil’jin Ruins until you finished [75] Therapy.


Optional – Instance: Drak’Tharon Keep.

Now we’ve got all the quests for Drak’Tharon Keep:

  • [74] Search and Rescue
  • [75] Cleansing Drak’Tharon

So from now on, if you feel like it, you should look for a group for Drak’Tharon Keep. It’s a very nice instance for level 74-76 players, I recommend it.

If you don’t feel like it or if you don’t find a group, you can abandon [74] Search and Rescue, it can easily be picked up in the future at the Granite Springs, if you change your mind. However, do not abandon [75] Cleansing Drak’Tharon, as it’s rather annoying to get that quest again if you abandon it.


2. Ride southeast back to Harkor’s Camp. Turn in:

  • [75] Therapy
  • [75] Dun-da-Dun-tah!
  • [75] It Takes Guts…, get [75] Drak’aguul’s Mallet

Optional[75] Hour of the Worg

This group quest is supposedly soloable by certain classes (Death Knights, Paladins, Hunters, Warlocks, Druids, etc). But it’s of course much easier to get a 2 or 3-man team for it.

So look for a group while following the rest of my guide, and when you find a group, come back to this section.

a76circuit29.jpg

1. Swim northeast to Bloodmoon Isle (83,28).

2. Follow the path up and there will be a camp to your right, where you should find a big worgen called Selas (85.5,27.5). Kill it.

3. Get back on the path and further up to your left you’ll find another camp, where you will find Varlam (85,24). Kill him.

4. Once you reach the top of the hill, go around to the tower towards the southern side and you’ll find a big worg called Goremaw. Kill it.

5. Enter the tower, fight your way to the top. There you will find the Shade of Arugal.

HP: 107,000

Phase 1: Shadowbolts for ~1500 dmg. Goes to Phase 2 at 75-70% HP.

Phase 2: Becomes invulnerable and summons 3 adds. Kill the adds to go back to Phase 1. When he hits 50% HP, he goes to Phase 3.

Phase 3: Becomes invulnerable again. Mind controls a party member which you’ll have to bring down to 35% health.
Once you break the Mind Control, Arugal goes back to Phase 1.

Bring him down to 25% HP and he’ll go to Phase 4.

Phase 4: It’s just like Phase 2, but with 9 adds instead of 3.
Kill the adds, then kill Arugal.

Sasha will show up and help you finish him off during the last phase. After the fight is over, turn in [75] Hour of the Worg.


a76circuit33.jpg

Please note that at this point you don’t have all the group quests, you only have the 3 wanted quests we just took. So ignore the rest for now, and check back on this map whenever you get a group for either of those group quests, you’ll find your targets very quickly that way.

Right now, the closest target is Kreug Oathbreaker, so if you see a group going for him while you’re still in the area, join them. But don’t waste your time trying to find a group, keep following the guide normally and just go for those group quests when the opportunity arises.

  • [74] The Obsidian Dragonshrine

Go to Torastrasza and ask him to send you to the ground level.

  • HPs: 118,000
  • Hits for: ~2K on clothies

Most classes can’t solo it. So try to find help for this quest. To be safe you’ll need a tank and a healer.

When ready, go to the southeastern tip of the glade (65,78).

a72image7b.jpg Right-click Skytalon Molts and Alystros will attack you. Better have your tank use the Skytalon Molts, so he gets attacked first.

Loot the Plume of Alystros. Go back to Nishera the Garden Keeper and turn in [74] The Plume of Alystros.

If you can’t find help for this quest, just save it for later, it has no follow up so it doesn’t matter when you do it.

4. (Optional) [73] My Old Enemy is another optional elite quest nearby. This quest requires you to kill High General Abbendis:

  • Level 72 Elite Humanoid
  • Immune to movement impairing effects, fear, etc
  • HPs: 96,000
  • Hits for ~3k on clothies

You’ll most likely need a tank and a healer for this one.

She can be found in the big cathedral in New Hearthglen (70,76). There’s a level 80 elite next to her but he doesn’t add if you pull Abbendis, so don’t worry about it.

If you can’t do this quest, just proceed with the guide and keep on looking for help regularly for both [73] My Old Enemy and [74] The Plume of Alystros. These quests have no follow up, so it doesn’t matter if you do them now or later.

You’ll get in one of those steam tanks and look around for Plague Wagons. Stand close to it and use Ability #3.

To make this quest easier I suggest zooming to 1st person view, it’s easier to aim that way (hold your mouse right-click and aim with the mouse).
It’s quite simple: Use Ability #2 and an Injured 7th Legion Soldier will appear in the ghoul pit and try to run to you. All you have to do is mash Ability #1 while aiming for the ground around the soldier, this will kill whatever comes near him and he’ll make it to you.

Rescue 8 Injured 7th Legion Soldiers that way.

Turn in [73] The Chain Gun And You, get [73] Plunderbeard Must Be Found!
Also get [73] Breaking Off A Piece from Yord “Calamity” Icebeard.

Also look in the skies for a Reanimated Frost Wyrm.

a72image10.jpg Target it and right-click the Seeds of Nature Wrath, then kill it.

If you don’t see any wyrm here, it means someone else killed it recently, don’t worry though, there are many others southwest of here, along the path of giants, make sure you kill one later when we go back to Wyrmrest Temple.

4. Go southwest to another snobold camp (65,44).

Finish [73] Pest Control here. There’s also a Reanimated Frost Wyrm flying over this area, in case you still need to kill one.

5. Go back to the 7th Legion Front. Turn in [73] Pest Control, get [73] Canyon Chase.

Now we’re going to kill Icestorm, a level 73 elite wyrm. Read the next paragraph before you talk to “Wyrmbait“.

Wyrmbait will fetch Icestorm for you. All you have to do is stand aside and let the NPCs tank for you and let them build some threat.

a72image12.jpg

Once Icestorm is down to 50% HP or so, start attacking it. Stay on its side to avoid the breath. If you do this properly, Icestorm should never attack you. If you got an ability to lower or reset your threat, use it, that way you can start attacking Icestorm earlier.

==Note== Icestorm is NOT immune to frost, surprisingly.

You should be ready now, talk to “Wyrmbait“, tell him to go fetch Icestorm.

Kill Icestorm and Thel’zan’s Phylactery should appear on the floor:

3. Go southeast to the Wintergarde Mausoleum at (82,51). Please note that this is not the same mausoleum as the one we went in earlier.

Go inside, turn in [73] Finality. Before you get the follow up, read the following lines.

The next quest will trigger an event. All you have to do is stay behind the guards when the fight begins, and then help them kill the minions of Thel’zan, and after that help them kill Thel’zan himself.

Once you’re ready, get [73] An End And A Beginning.

If you’re sucessful, go back to Wintergarde Keep, turn in [73] An End And A Beginning, get [73] To Fordragon Hold!

Fly to Wyrmrest Temple.

a74circuit16.jpg

1. Follow the dots on my map until (48,24). There you should find a Nozzlerust Supply Runner, get his quest [74] Return to Sender.

2. From there ride east to Nozzlerust Post (55,24). Turn in [74] Return to Sender, get [74] Stocking Up. Also get the two other quests:

  • [74] Shaved Ice
  • [74] Nozzlerust Defense

3. Ride west and then south to Fordragon Hold. There’s a narrow path leading up to it at (43,29).

FPicon.jpg Get the new flight path.

Follow the path west towards the highest tower, there you’ll find Highlord Bolvar Fordragon.

Turn in [73] To Fordragon Hold! and get the follow up [74] Audience With The Dragon Queen.

Go to the gryphon master, fly to Wyrmrest Temple.

Turn in [73] Disturbing Implications, get [73] One of a Kind from Aurastrasza, who resides at the bottom floor of Wyrmrest Temple.

Go to Tariolastrasz and ask him to fly you to the top floor. Turn in:

  • [75] Mystery of the Infinite
  • [74] Audience With The Dragon Queen, get [74] Galakrond and the Scourge

Turn in [74] Galakrond and the Scourge at Torastrasza and get [74] On Ruby Wings.

4. a72image15.jpg Right-click the Ruby Beacon of the Dragon Queen.

Wyrmrest Vanquisher will fly down to you. Right-click it to climb it.

Now things get fun. See, you can use this Wyrmrest Vanquisher everywhere in the Dragon Wastes, which means we basically have a flying mount for a big chunk of the map, and we’re going to make the most of it. Just remember to always fly low, so that you don’t die if the drake decides to drop you off without a warning and without a parachute (it can happen :p).

a74circuit17.jpg

1. Fly west to a canyon at (51,58). Look for Bonesunder, a magnataur who patrols the ledge above this canyon, going in between the above location and the azure dragonshrine.

He’s elite and immune to all forms of cc but he only has 25K HP and doesn’t hit too hard as long as you avoid his special ability: Bone Crack. So just burn him down quickly and you should be fine, use cooldowns and potions if needed. The only dangerous ability he has is Bone Crack. When he casts that, run away quickly and it won’t hit you.

Loot the Emblazoned Battle Horn.

2. Summon your drake again and fly back to Wyrmrest Temple, turn in [73] One of a Kind, get the follow up [73] Mighty Magnataur.

3. Summon your drake, fly northeast to (68,41), there you’ll find a named magnataur called Drakegore, he patrols up and down around this spot.

He’s elite but soloable, doesn’t hit too hard, can be snared, stunned, feared, rooted. He also has an aura which does 300 fire damage to enemies in his melee range, nothing too bad.

4. Ride south to (67,50). There you’ll find another named magnataur, Iceshatter. He roams around the frozen lake in this area.

He’s more tricky to kill than the previous one. He’s immune to movement impairing effects so clothies might have a little bit of trouble, however he doesn’t much hit points so you can burn him down before he kills you.

He periodically casts Pulsing Shards. This is very dangerous and can’t be interrupted. Either run away while he channels it or use something like cloak of shadows, divine shield, ice block.

I personally had no troubles soloing it with my frost mage wearing only quest greens. I sent my water elemental first and let him tank as much as possible, used icy veins and a trinket and burned him down as fast as possible.

5. Summon your drake and fly south to (67,70). There you should find another magnataur called Bloodfeast.

That one is also tricky, immune to all forms of cc. He summons maggots which heal him up. The maggots are immune to AoE abilities, so you’d have to target them and kill them one by one (they got 1000HP). By the time you’d be done with that, he’d summon another round of maggots. So here is the strategy: Ignore the maggots, burn him down as fast as you can.

Worked just fine for me even with characters wearing quest greens.

Summon the drake, fly back to Wyrmrest Temple. Turn in [73] Mighty Magnataur, get [74] Reclusive Runemaster.


Now we’re all set for most of the group quests of Dragonblight. These can’t be soloed by most classes, so look for a group for those quests while you keep on following the guide.

Here’s a list of the quests you need to find a group for:

  • [73] My Old Enemy
  • [74] The Plume of Alystros
  • [74] Wanted: High Shaman Bloodpaw
  • [74] Wanted: Kreug Oathbreaker
  • [74] Wanted: Onslaught Commander Iustus
  • [74] Reclusive Runemaster

Once you finish [74] Reclusive Runemaster (Defeat Dreg’mar), get the follow up [74] Wanton Warlord and also look for a group for it (Kill Grom’thar).

Here is the map of the group quests again, so that you don’t have to scroll up too much.

dragonblightgrpquests.jpg

You can get there quickly thanks to your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, so just keep on following the guide normally and whenever you find a group for one of the above quests, summomn your drake and fly there!


a74circuit18.jpg

1. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher. Fly northwest to Ceristrasz (52,50).

Turn in [74] Report to the Ruby Dragonshrine, get [74] Heated Battle.

Very easy quest, you simply have to go down in the canyon and help the Alliance forces to kill what’s on the list for your quest. You just have to do a little bit of damage on every mob to get the kill credit. Just stay behind the NPCs and you’ll be fine.

Go back to Ceristrasz, turn in [74] Heated Battle, get [74] Return to the Earth.

2. Summon your drake. Fly to the southern canyon (47,53).

Look for a Ruby Acorn.

a74img19.jpg

Loot it.

Look for a Ruby Keeper (those dead dragons in flames).

a74img20.jpg Target it and right-click the Ruby Acorn.

Repeat this step 6 times.

Get out of the dragonshrine, summon your drake and fly back to Ceristrasz. Turn in [74] Return to the Earth, get [75] Through Fields of Flame.

3. Summon your drake, fly west towards the huge tree in the middle of the dragonshrine. The entrance is on the southeastern side of the tree at the bottom of it (48,50).

Inside you’ll find Daliah Suntouch. Kill her.

Loot the Ruby Brooch.

a74img21.jpg Right-click the Ruby Brooch, get the quest [75] The Fate of the Ruby Dragonshrine.

Now kill 6 Frigid Necromancers, they can be found all around the tree.

Get out the dragonshrine, summon your drake and fly back to Ceristrasz.

Turn in [75] Through Fields of Flame, get [75] The Steward of Wyrmrest Temple.

a74circuit19.jpg

1. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, fly north to Galakrond’s Rest (56,35). Go down in the pit and use Ability #1 and #2 to kill Wastes Scavengers (you can actually use both at the same time). Whenever your drake needs mana or healing, use Ability #3 while being close to a Wastes Scavenger.

Kill 30 Wastes Scavenger that way.

==Note== Before we go kill Grand Necrolord Antiok, equip your PvP trinket if you got one with you, because he casts a 10 second fear and a 10 second Death Coil, quite annoying and it can potentially get you killed.

Then go to the peak at the northwestern tip of Galakron’s Rest, kill the big giant called Thiassi and then land next to his corpse and dismount. Get ready to fight Grand Necrolord Antiok, a level 75 warlock.

After he dies, the Scythe of Antiok will appear on the floor.

a72image16.jpg

Loot it.

Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher again and fly away before the giant respawns.

2. Fly to a digsite just west of Galakron’s Rest (52,31).

unmounticon.jpg Click the Leave Vehicle Button

Kill everything in the camp and look for composite ore.

a72image17.jpg

3. Once you’ve looted all the composite ore from this spot, go northeast to the next digsite (57,28). Kill everything and loot all the ore there. You should normally be done with [74] Stocking Up and [74] Nozzlerust Defense.

If not, there’s another digsite just southeast of this one.

4. Summon the drake again, fly northwest to Coldwind Heights (54,20). Kill Crystalline Ice Elementals until you’ve looted 4 Iceshard Cluster.

5. Go south unil you’re back in the Dragon Wastes, summon the drake, fly east to Nozzlerust Post. Turn in:

  • [74] Stocking Up
  • [74] Nozzlerust Defense
  • [74] Shaved Ice, get [74] Soft Packaging

6. Go to the area southwest of Nozzlerust Post (53,25).
Kill Jormugar Tunnelers / Dragonbone Condors until you’ve looted 12 Thin Animal Hide.

Go back to Nozzlerust Post, turn in [74] Soft Packaging, get [74] Something That Doesn’t Melt.
Also get [74] Hard to Swallow from Xink.

a74circuit20.jpg

1. Go to the area east of Nozzlerust post and go to the dragon skull at (57,24).

Look for a Splintered Bone Chunk around this skull. They look like this:

a74img22.jpg

Right-click and loot them.

Also, while in this area, look for a Hulking Jormungar. Bring it down to 80% HP and a message will appear:

a74img23.jpg

a74img24.jpg Right-click the Potent Explosive Charges.

This will blow up the Hulking Jormungar and a lot of meat will fly all around its corpse. Loot 6 Seared Jormungar Meat.

2. Go the big dragon skeletons southeast of here (60,27). Loot all the bone chunks you can find around it.

3. Go to the next dragon skeleton further east (63,28). Loot all the bone chunks you can find around it.

4. Go northeast to the 7th Legion Front (64,28). Turn in [73] Canyon Chase.

5. Now just revisit the previous steps until you have 12 Splintered Bone Chunks.
Once you’re done, summon your drake and fly back to Nozzlerust Post, turn in:

  • [74] Something That Doesn’t Melt
  • [74] Hard to Swallow

Get:

  • [74] Harp on This!
  • [74] Lumber Hack
a74circuit21.jpg

1. Go northwest to Coldwind Heights again.

a74img25.jpg Right-click Xink’s Shredder Control Device.

Right-click the shredder to take control of it.

Go westwards while doing the following two things:

  • Kill harpies on your way (Use Ability #1 and #2 – Also use Ability #4 whenever your shredder lacks 5000 HP or more)
  • Look for trees with a cross:a74img26.jpg

Use Ability #6 while standing close to them.

Ability #3 is just a 10 sec run speed boost, use it at will.

2. Keep going west and then northwest and you’ll find the Mistress of the Coldwind (45,10).
She’s elite but it’s no problem for you and your shredder.

==Note== Should your shredder get destroyed, you can re-summon one again.

Once you’ve killed the Mistress of the Coldwind, finish gathering lumber and killing harpies until you finish both quests.

3. Ride back to Nozzlerust Post, turn in:

  • [74] Harp on This!
  • [74] Lumber Hack

Get [74] Stiff Negotiations.

4. Go east until you enter the Dragon Wastes, summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, fly northeast to Zort (59,18). Easy to spot thanks to the yellow “?” on your minimap. Don’t worry about the warning message you get when you get out of the Dragon Wastes, you should have more than enough time to land next to Zort before your drake drops you.

Turn in [74] Stiff Negotiations, get [74] Slim Pickings.

5. Follow the trail north while avoiding the elite giants and then go northwest to the Ice Heart Cavern, inside the cave you’ll find a Ravaged Crystalline Ice Giant (56,12) close to the entrance.

a74img27.jpg

Right-click it to get a Sample of Rock Flesh.

Get out of the cave, ride back to Zort.

Turn in [74] Slim Pickings, get [74] Messy Business.
Also get [74] Stomping Grounds from Ko’char the Unbreakable.

No map needed for this circuit.

1. Go back to the Ice Heart Cave.

a74img28.jpg Put Zort’s Scraper on an action bar.

Kill Ice Heart Jormungar Feeders and use Zort’s Scraper whenever they cast Corosive Spit on you, this will remove the dot and prevent a lot of damage, and it will also complete the other quest.

Kill 8 Ice Heart Jormungar Feeders and remove the Corosive Acid twice, then ride back to Zort.

Turn in:

  • [74] Messy Business, get [74] Apply This Twice A Day
  • [74] Stomping Grounds
  • [74] Apply This Twice A Day

Get:

  • [74] Really Big Worm
  • [74] Worm Wrangler

[74] Really Big Worm cannot be soloed by most classes. The mob you have to kill, Rattlebore, is at the very end of the Ice Heart Cave. So just add this to your list of group quests and shout for a group regularly.

Rattlebore stats:

  • 72,000 HP
  • Hits for 2K on clothies
  • Immune to all forms of cc

Don’t forget to drink Zort’s Protective Elixir before you fight him, it will make things easier.

I recommend going there with 3 players to make it easier, including a tank type and a healer type.

Anyway, just add this quest to your list of group quests to do in Dragonblight, keep looking for a group for it regularly and continue with the guide in the mean time.

When you find a group for it, don’t forget to do the other quest on the way while you’re in the caves. It’s quite easy, all you have to do is get close to a Jormungar Spawn and then:

a74img29.jpg Use the Sturdy Crates on it.

Then just right-click the crate on the floor. Repeat this 3 times. Can easily be done while clearing the way to Rattlebore.

Once you’ve finished those two quests, go back to Zort and turn in:

  • [74] Really Big Worm
  • [74] Worm Wrangler

a74circuit22.jpg

1. Follow the trail southwest until you’re back in the Dragon Wastes. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher.

Fly to the Obsidian Dragonshrine towards the cave.

You’ll find Serinar inside the cave called the Maw of Neltharion (35,30).

Turn in [74] The Obsidian Dragonshrine, get:

  • [74] No One to Save You
  • [74] No Place to Run

2. Clear the way out of the Obsidian Dragonshrine, until the point where the path becomes snowy again (42,32).

Get back to full HP/mana.

a74img30.jpg Right-click the Destructive Wards.

Defend the ward until you get the complete message.

Kill what you still need for [74] No One to Save You and go back to Serinar. Turn in:

3. Serinar will give you a disguise.

Go west through the cave until you find Rothin the Decaying. You’ll get the complete message, then go back to Serinar.

Turn in [74] The Best of Intentions, get:

  • [74] Culling the Damned
  • [74] Defiling the Defilers

Kill what you need for [74] Culling the Damned.

Go back to Serinar. Turn in:

  • [74] Culling the Damned

Also get [74] The Call Of The Crusade from Tilda Darathan.

2. Ride southeast to Eldritch Heights (90,68). Look for Murkweed.

a74img33.jpg

==Note== While you’re here, try to see if there’s any group up for killing High Shaman Bloodpaw for the quest [74] Wanted: High Shaman Bloodpaw. He’s really close so might as well kill two birds with one stone. Some classes reported being able to solo it, but I wouldn’t risk it, duo’ing is already much more realistic. 3+ is best.

Loot 5 Murkweed.

Go back to Dawn’s Reach.
Turn in [72] The Murkweed Elixir, get [72] The Forgotten Tale.

a74circuit24.jpg

1. Ride southwest to The Forgotten Shore (85,67)

Ride back to Dawn’s Reach.
Turn in [72] The Forgotten Tale, get [72] The Truth Shall Set Us Free

Watch the cool script and you’ll complete the quest.

Go back to Dawn’s Reach, turn in [72] The Truth Shall Set Us Free, get the follow up [72] Parting Thoughts.

4. Ride to Wintergarde Keep. Go to Zelig the Visionary and turn in [72] Parting Thoughts, get [73] What Secrets Men Hide.

Two new quests should be available:

  • [73] The Return of the Crusade?
  • [73] The Path of Redemption

Get them both.

Sell junk, repair and re-stock food/drink.

Level 75


a74circuit25.jpg

1. Get out of Wintergarde Keep by the eastern gate and ride northeast to Onslaught Base Camp (84,42). Kill Scarlet NPCs while going north through the camp.

  • [73] What Secrets Men Hide, get [73] Frostmourne Cavern

1. Take the northern exit and go to the Dragon Wastes, summon your ruby drake and fly to Frostmourne Cavern, as shown in the video below (you don’t need to watch the whole video, only until the point where I’m in the cave about to start the script)

  • Ability #5: Go inside the big beam in the Azure Dragonshrine (just southwest of Wyrmrest Temple) and use it once.
a74img38.jpg

Fun quest, kill dragons. Not much else to say, it’s rather easy, just escape and heal up if things get dangerous.

This is a daily quest by the way, and you get an achievement if you finish it in under 2 minutes.

Once back in Stormwind, turn in [74] The Battle For The Undercity.

While you’re here, go train your new skills, visit the AH, etc.

Bofore we go on, here’s a map with the locations of all the group quest mobs you have to kill in Dragonblight. Some of them have been reported to be soloed by certain classes (and with very good gear), but for the average players and class, you really will want a group of 3 players to be safe.

hdragonblightgrpqs.jpg

Please note that at this point you don’t have all the group quests, you only have the 3 wanted quests we just took. So ignore the rest for now, and check back on this map whenever you get a group for either of those group quests, you’ll find your targets very quickly that way.

Keep following the guide normally and just go for those group quests when the opportunity arises.


h74circuit2.jpg

1. Ride west until you reach the the area just east of Azjol-Nerub (30,50).

Kill Rabbid Grizzlies and Blighted Elks until you have 15 Infected Wildlife kills and have looted a Rot Resistant Organ (random drop from those)

More Grizzlies and Elks can be found all around the Pit of Narjun.

2. Go inside the Pit of Narjun (27,50).

Look for Black Blood of Yogg-Saron.

h74img3.jpg

h74imgfix1.jpg Right-click Ironbender’s Mining Pick and then left-click the mining node.

Let yourself fall down in one of the holes and go to Kilix the Unravaler. Get his 4 quests:

  • [72] An Enemy in Arthas
  • [74] Death to the Traitor King
  • [74] Don’t Forget the Eggs!
  • [76] The Faceless Ones

From Kilix the Unraveler, take the middle tunnel going east, at the end of it you’ll find High Cultist Zangus. Kill him and loot the Head of High Cultist Zangus.

Now just kill 6 Abu’ar Underlords and mine 10 Black Blood of Yogg-Saron.

Go back to Kilix the Unraveler, turn in [72] An Enemy in Arthas, get [72] The Lost Empire.


Instance: Azjol-Nerub

You have all the quests for the normal version of the instance Azjol-Nerub.

  • [74] Death to the Traitor King
  • [74] Don’t Forget the Eggs!

So from now on, if you feel like it, you should look for a group for Azjol-Nerub (Abbreviation: AZN). It’s a very quick instance for level 72-74 players, I recommend it.

If you don’t feel like it or if you don’t find a group, you can abandon the above quests. They can easily be picked up in the future anyway, if you change your mind.


Instance: Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom

You also have the quest for the normal version of the instance Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom.

  • [76] The Faceless Ones

So from now on, if you feel like it, you should look for a group for Ahn’kahet. It’s for level 73-75 players and I also recommend it.

If you don’t feel like it or if you don’t find a group, you can abandon the above quests. They can easily be picked up in the future anyway, if you change your mind.

a72image15.jpg Right-click the Ruby Beacon of the Dragon Queen.

Wyrmrest Vanquisher will fly down to you. Right-click it to climb it.

Now things get fun. See, you can use this Wyrmrest Vanquisher everywhere in the Dragon Wastes, which means we basically have a flying mount for a big chunk of the map, and we’re going to make the most of it. Just remember to always fly low, so that you don’t die if the drake decides to drop you off without a warning and without a parachute (I learned the hard way :p).

==Warning== Don’t turn in the quest [74] On Ruby Wings until I tell you to, or you won’t be able to summon the drake anymore.

4. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher, fly north to Galakrond’s Rest (56,35).

Go down in the pit and use Ability #1 and Ability #2 to kill Wastes Scavengers.
Whenever your drake needs mana or healing, use Ability #3 while being close to a Wastes Scavenger.

Kill 30 Wastes Scavenger that way.

==Note== Before we go kill Grand Necrolord Antiok, equip your PvP trinket if you got one with you, because he casts a 10 second fear, quite annoying and it can potentially get you killed.

Then go to the peak at the northwestern tip of Galakron’s Rest, kill the big giant called Thiassi and then land next to his corpse and dismount. Get ready to fight Grand Necrolord Antiok, a level 75 warlock.

After he dies, the Scythe of Antiok will appear on the floor.

a72image16.jpg

Loot it.

Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher again and fly away before the giant respawns.

h74circuit11.jpg

1. Fly west/southwest to Dragon’s Fall where you’ll find Kontokanis (47,33).

Dismount, get [73] Pest Control.

==Note== While you’re here, try to see if there’s any group up for killing Dreadtalon for the quest [74] Wanted: Dreadtalon. He’s really close so might as well kill two birds with one stone. Some classes reported being able to solo it, but I wouldn’t risk it, duo’ing is already much more realistic. 3+ is best.

2. Go east until you’re back in the Dragon Wastes. Summon your Wyrmrest Vanquisher.

Fly to the Snowbold Camp just south of Galakrond’s Rest (55,41).

Kill all the Snobolds and Magnataurs you can find here.

Also look in the skies for a Reanimated Frost Wyrm.

a72image10.jpg Target it and right-click the Seeds of Nature’s Wrath, then kill it.

3. Summon your drake. Fly south to another Snobold / Magnataur camp (56,52).

Kill them all and you should be done with [73] Pest Control. If you aren’t, just look for other snowbold camps, there are many around here and they are easy to spot.

Once you’re done, summon your drake and fly back to Dragon’s Fall.
Dismount the drake and get on your normal mount before you turn in the quest.

Turn in [73] Pest Control, get the follow up [73] Canyon Chase.

4. Chase the fleeing snowbolds into the canyon.

You’ll run into a magnataur called Icefist.

Kill him and loot the Emblazoned Battle Horn.

a72image14.jpg Right-click it to start [73] Disturbing Implications.

Go back to Dragon’s Fall, turn in [73] Canyon Chase.

Enter the Dragon Wastes, summon the drake, fly to Wyrmrest Temple‘s ground floor.

Turn in [73] Disturbing Implications, get [73] One of a Kind from Aurastrasza.

a74circuit17.jpg

1. Fly west to a canyon at (51,58). Look for Bonesunder, a magnataur who patrols the ledge above this canyon, going in between the above location and the azure dragonshrine.

He’s elite and immune to all forms of cc but he only has 21K HP and doesn’t hit too hard as long as you avoid his Bone Crack ability, so just burn him down quickly and you should be fine, use cooldowns and potions if needed.

The only dangerous ability he has is Bone Crack. When he casts that, run away quickly and it won’t hit you.

Loot the Emblazoned Battle Horn.

2. Summon your drake again and fly back to Wyrmrest Temple, turn in [73] One of a Kind, get the follow up [73] Mighty Magnataur.

3. Summon your drake, fly northeast to (68,41), there you’ll find a named magnataur called Drakegore, he patrols up and down around this spot.

He’s elite but soloable, doesn’t hit too hard, can be snared, stunned, feared, rooted. He also has an aura which does 300 fire damage to enemies in his melee range, nothing too bad.

4. Ride south to (67,50). There you’ll find another named magnataur, Iceshatter. He roams around the frozen lake in this area.

He’s more tricky to kill than the previous one. He’s immune to movement impairing effects so clothies might have a little bit of trouble, however he doesn’t much hit points so you can burn him down before he kills you.

He periodically casts Pulsing Shards. This is very dangerous and can’t be interrupted. Either run away while he channels it or use something like cloak of shadows, divine shield, ice block.

I personally had no troubles soloing it with my frost mage wearing only quest greens. I sent my water elemental first and let him tank as much as possible, used icy veins and a trinket and burned him down as fast as possible.

After you’ve killed Iceshatter, in the frozen lake just a few steps south you should find Ice Revenants.

frostgem.jpg Beat one down to 35% HP and then right-click the Frost Gem.

5. Go back to the Dragon Wastes, summon your drake and fly south to (67,70). There you should find another magnataur called Bloodfeast.

That one is also tricky, immune to all forms of cc. He summons maggots which heal him up. The maggots are immune to AoE abilities, so you’d have to target them and kill them one by one (they got 1000HP). By the time you’d be done with that, he’d summon another round of maggots. So here is the strategy: Ignore the maggots, burn him down as fast as you can.

Worked just fine for me even with characters wearing quest greens.

Summon the drake, fly back to Wyrmrest Temple. Turn in [73] Mighty Magnataur, get [74] Reclusive Runemaster.

Sell junk, repair and re-stock food/drink.


Now we’re all set for most of the group quests of Dragonblight. These can’t be soloed by most classes, so look for a group while you keep on following the guide.

Here’s a list of the quests you need to find a group for:

  • [74] The Plume of Alystros
  • [74] Wanted: Dreadtalon
  • [74] Wanted: Gigantaur
  • [74] Wanted: Magister Keldonus
  • [74] Reclusive Runemaster

Once you finish [74] Reclusive Runemaster (defeat Dreg’mar, get the follow up [74] Wanton Warlord (kill Grom’thar) and also look for a group for it.
Once you finish all 3 wanted quests, get the follow up [75] To Dragon’s Fall, also look for a group for it.

Here is a map showing the location of all those objectives.

  • Hits for ~3k on clothies

You’ll most likely need a tank and a healer for this one.

She can be found in the big cathedral in New Hearthglen (70,76). There’s a level 80 elite next to her but he doesn’t add if you pull Abbendis, so don’t worry about it.

If you can’t do this quest, just proceed with the guide and keep on looking for help regularly for both all those group quests, you can easily get there anyway with your Wyrmrest Vanquisher.
Please note that this quest has no follow up, so it doesn’t matter if you do it now or later.


Sell junk, repair and re-stock food/drink.

h74circuit16.jpg

Go westwards while doing the following two things:

  • Kill harpies on your way (Use Ability #1 and #2 – Also use Ability #4 whenever your shredder lacks 5000 HP or more)
  • Look for trees with a cross:a74img26.jpg

Ability #3 is just a 10 sec run speed boost, use it at will.

2. Keep going west and then northwest and you’ll find the Mistress of the Coldwind (45,10).
She’s elite but it’s no problem for you and your shredder.

==Note== Should your shredder get destroyed, you can re-summon one again.

Once you’ve killed the Mistress of the Coldwind, finish gathering lumber and killing harpies until you finish both quests.

No map needed for this circuit.

1. Go back to the Ice Heart Cave.

a74img28.jpg Put Zort’s Scraper on an action bar.

Kill Ice Heart Jormungar Feeders and use Zort’s Scraper whenever they cast Corosive Spit on you, this will remove the dot and prevent a lot of damage, and it will also complete the other quest.

Kill 8 Ice Heart Jormungar Feeders and remove the Corosive Acid twice, then ride back to Zort.

Turn in:

  • [74] Messy Business, get [74] Apply This Twice A Day
  • [74] Stomping Grounds
  • [74] Apply This Twice A Day

Get:

  • [74] Really Big Worm
  • [74] Worm Wrangler

[74] Really Big Worm cannot be soloed by most classes. The mob you have to kill, Rattlebore, is at the very end of the Ice Heart Cave. So just add this to your list of group quests and shout for a group regularly.

Rattlebore stats:

  • 72,000 HP
  • Hits for 2K on clothies
  • Immune to all forms of cc

Don’t forget to drink Zort’s Protective Elixir before you fight him, it will make things easier.

I recommend going there with 3 players to make it easier, including a tank type and a healer type.

Anyway, just add this quest to your list of group quests to do in Dragonblight, keep looking for a group for it regularly and continue with the guide in the mean time.

When you find a group for it, don’t forget to do the other quest on the way while you’re in the caves. It’s quite easy, all you have to do is get close to a Jormungar Spawn and then:

a74img29.jpg Use the Sturdy Crates on it.

Then just right-click the crate on the floor. Repeat this 3 times. Can easily be done while clearing the way to Rattlebore.

Once you’ve finished those two quests, go back to Zort and turn in:

==Warning== We’re about to turn in the quest [74] On Ruby Wings. That means we won’t be able to summon the Wyrmrest Vanquisher to travel anymore. So if you still have some of the group quests unfinished, try to do them now!

Try a last time to get a group for the group quests of Dragonblight, if you don’t find one, just abandon those groups quests now, we are done with Dragonblight. You can come back here at level 80 to finish those group quests.

This guide ends here, time to go to go to Grizzly Hills.
