Most Comprehensive & Fastest Horde Classic Leveling Guide [1-60] Classic WoW
#1
Fastest Horde 12-60 Leveling Guide
For Classic WoW 
Introduction

This guide is optimized for FAST leveling with a minimum of grinding sessions, its suitable for all Classes, but Hunters should use Joana’s Guide, since its better for them. Quests are important, they give rewards and faction and are less boring than pure grinding, BUT sometimes some quests are really a time waste and we will skip those and replace them by good grinding session when it is necessary.

Some people say that grinding is always faster than questing, this is true in theory when you don't know which quests to take and which to avoid, and what is the best order to do them. With this guide, questing will be very efficient and much better than pure grinding. Follow each instruction carefully and you will see for yourself.

The quest choices and order to do them are optimal so that you run as few as possible while doing the most possible and then turning several quests in at the same time. This guide will be very useful for both veteran and novice players. I try to keep the amount of information as short as possible. 

So even the guide itself is optimized for the minimum reading possible, to save time! Let's get started immediately then! Everything described in this guide can be done solo (besides when I say otherwise). However you can follow this guide while duoing, grouping, it's not a problem, it works too.

Basic rules
  • While traveling, kill everything that is on your way that gives experience (Yellow mobs preferably, but greens are ok if they are just 3-4 levels below you, not more).
  • Spend your talent points so you do the most damage possible. (e.g: Priest should specialize in Shadow Talents, Warriors in Arms/Fury, Rogues Combat/Assassination, etc).
  • Don't waste your time trying to find groups for questing, you can solo everything that is described in this guide. Only group with someone when it's not gonna be a waste of time (e.g: meeting the person at the other end of the map to show him the way to where your quest is, that is a waste of time)
  • Try to always log out in an Inn or in one of the major cities when you take a break.
  • If I don't mention a quest, it means I consider it a waste of time, so don't take it thinking I forgot a quest here and there, I didn't. Also don't abandon a quest unless I say you should.
  • Sometimes I will be making lists of quest you should have before starting with an area, that doesn't mean I will list the whole quest log, JUST the quests that interest us for the moment.
  • When I say you should bind (make an Inn your home location) somewhere, it's for a good reason, and it will save you much time. Don't change your home location until I say so.

Level 12 (where the fun begins)

If you are Tauren..

Taurens, you will most likely be starting in Bloodhoof Village, or at least have a good idea of how to get there.  Starting at Bloodhoof, head east until you hit the border between Mulgore and The Barrens. The southern barrens has mobs of a much higher level than you are right now, so stick to the roads as you head east towards Camp Taurajo. (Follow the blue dots on the map above.) 

Once you get there, talk to the Wind Rider Master to get the Flightpath, then pick up [10] The Barrens Oases and [12] Journey to the Crossroads from Kirge Sternhorn. Once that's done, hit the road north out of Taurajo. This is a long-ish run, but completely necessary.

When you arrive at the crossroads, talk to Thork to finish your quest. Once that's done, talk to Jahan Hawkwing to get [10] A bundle of hides. This quest involves flying to Thunder Bluff, dropping the hides off and riding back. You can handle this yourself. Complete the entire quest chain, and when you're back at the Crossroads, start on Part 2.


If you are a Troll or an Orc..

I shall assume you are starting in Razor Hill. At the western gates of Razor Hill, you'll find Takrin Pathseeker. Talk to him and pick up [12] Conscript of the Horde, then head west, following the road, until you meet a bridge. 
Cross the bridge, find the guard tower nearby, and talk to Kargal Battlescar. 

Get the follow up, [12] Crossroads Conscript. Your next order of business is to get to the Crossroads. 
Follow the road west until you meet a junction, then turn south. The crossroads is a short walk ahead of you. 

(Follow the red dots on the map above.Add map) When you arrive, pick up [10] Meats to Orgrimmar from Zargh. 
This is a short quest to get you used to flying between Wind Riders. I won't talk you through this quest, as it's simple enough to do. Complete the entire quest chain, then move on to Part 2.

If you are Undead..

GO HOME! ..seriously though, as undead you will be starting in Brill. Hop on a Zeppelin, which will fly you to Orgrimmar. 

(If you end up in Stranglethorn, you hopped the wrong Zeppelin. =p) 
From Orgrimmar, run south down the road to Razor Hill, then turn west and head straight for the Barrens. Don't worry about [12] Conscript of the Horde, undead players won't be able to pick this up. 

Just follow the red dots on the map, and get to the crossroads. 

You will also be unable to do the Wind Rider quests for the crossroads, which will leave you with a slight experience deficit compared to the other races, so be prepared to plug some holes with some grinding later in this guide.

Now, even with all that running around, you should now be about a third of the way through level 12. And we didn't even kill anything yet! )

Set your hearthstone to The Crossroads.

The first thing we'll do is gather all the quests available at the crossroads. These should be..
  •  [11] Wharfmaster Dizzywig
  •  [12] Disrupt the Attacks
  •  [12] Plainstrider Menace
  •  [13] Raptor Thieves
  •  [13] The Forgotten Pools
  •  [14] Supplies for The Crossroads
  •  [15] Fungal Spores
 
Got them all? Good! Now from now on, and this is important, kill every raptor you see until you have completed [13] Raptor Thieves. Do not go looking for them, but if you pass one, kill it. If you are on the quest, any Raptor in the barrens will drop a Raptor Head for you, so you'll only need to kill 12 of them. We are in no rush with this quest, but we do want it out of the way, because eventually, we'll need the follow up.

Now, let us begin. Head east out of the crossroads and kill any Plainstriders you see. They should be right outside the town. Start moving south, and walk clockwise around The Crossroads, killing Plainstriders and Raptors as you go. Once you have completed [12] Plainstrider Menace, get back into town, talk to Sergena Darkthorn and get the follow up, [13] The Zhevra.


1. Next, we're going to head West to a little bunker, which can be found at 45,28 for anyone that uses coordinates. If you don't read the addons section at the beginning of the guide, or just use the map above. On your way there, kill any Zhevras and Raptors that you pass, but don't worry too much about them at this point. Once at the bunker, you will find Regthar Deathgate, who will offer you two quests. [14] Centaur Bracers and [16] Kolkar Leaders. Take them both.

2. Start running north, continuing to kill Zhevras and Raptors. You should see a few Centaur camps up ahead. Keep away from the tents, and run north into the trees, picking off the Centaurs you see one by one. Keep an eye open for big blue mushrooms! They are Fungal Spores and are needed for a quest you're on. They are most common around the lake there. Grab four of them to complete [15] Fungal Spores.

Once you've collected all your spores, get back into the lake, and look for a crack in the floor with some bubbles flowing out of it. Swim over the bubbles to complete [13] The Forgotten Pools.

3. Now, the tricky part. Start moving west towards 43,24, killing Centaurs as you go, being careful to fight them one on one. When you get there, you will see a small gazebo-like building up on a hill. Just outside that building will be Barak Kodobane, with one patroller nearby. CAREFULLY pull the patroller, and kill him one on one. Take a quick look around for any patrols, then Kill Barak Kodobane. He is Level 16, which will make this a difficult fight, but definitely a possible one. He uses a bow to attack you from range, and runs away at low health. Don't worry if you die, just go back and try again. Once he is dead, start grinding on Centaur around the Forgotten Pools until you ding level 13. Make sure you loot the Centaur Bracers that they drop for [14] Centaur Bracers. Do not worry if you don't get all 15. There'll be plenty of opportunity to get them later. 


Level 13


If you can't kill Barak Kodobane..
If you try really hard to kill Barak, but still die, don't worry! Just grind on the Centaur in the area until you ding level 13, then try again. One level can make a huge difference!

4. Once you level, head south to the bunker and turn in [16] Kolkar Leaders, then get the follow up, [18] Verog the Dervish. While you're there, kill off any more Zhevra you need for [13] The Zhevra.

5. Now start heading back to The Crossroads. When you get there, turn in the following quests..
  • [13] The Zhevra
  • [13] The Forgotten Pools
  • [15] Fungal Spores
And get the follow ups..
  • [15] Prowlers of the Barrens
  • [18] The Stagnant Oasis
DO NOT get [15] Apothecary Zamah yet. It is a timed quest, and we're not ready to do it just yet.
Done? Good job. You should now be about 1/3rd through level 13. Sell your grey items, restock any food or water that you need, grab a cup of coffee, and get ready.

1. Head north out of The Crossroads. On your right, you should find a small camp of Razormane Quilboars. Kill these until you have completed [12] Disrupt The Attacks. If you run out of quilboar, head further east to the side of the mountain. There should be plenty there for you to kill.

2. Once you're done with Razormanes, head north until you hit the road, then walk East. Stay on the road until you see a Guard Tower, right before you hit the river. (Trolls and Orcs will remember this tower from [12] Crossroads Conscript.) From there, start heading south. There are a few raptors in this area, try to kill them all as you move south, until you complete [13] Raptor Thieves. (If you've been killing raptors as you see them, you should only be 4 or 5 heads away from being done.) Follow the road all the way south, until you reach Ratchet.

3. While we're here, we're going to scoop up some quests and take the Ratchet flightpath. As you approach the town from the north, you'll see a green hut on your right. Inside, you will find Gazlowe who will give you [14] Southsea Freebooters. Leave the hut, walk south some, and find Sputtervalve who will give you [14] Samophlange. Next, you'll find a wanted poster on the wall of the Bank. Get [16] WANTED Baron Longshore from it. While you're here, pop out onto the pier and talk to Wharfmaster Dizzywig. Complete [11] Wharfmaster Dizzywig, and pick up [18] Miner's Fortune. One more quest to pick up.. as you head south out of Ratchet, stop at Captain Thalo'thas Brightsun and get [20] The Guns of Northwatch.

4. All done? Lovely. Now head south along the coast until you find the pirates. Kill these until you have completed [14] Southsea Freebooters. If you find Baron Longshore, please don't try to kill him just yet. We'll be coming back this way soon enough anyway, and he is very difficult to kill at the moment. We can put him off until we're a little more prepared. 
5. When the pirates are all dead, head back to Gazlowe, turn in, and get the follow up, [14] The Missing Shipment. This is a short quest which will take you down to Wharfmaster Dizzywig by the water in Ratchet, then back up to Gazlowe. Then, Gazlowe will give you another follow up, [16] Stolen Booty.

6. Head west out of Ratchet. As you leave the town, you will see a cliff to the north. Walk around that cliff and towards 60,35(or the big number 6 on the map above.) This place should be full of Savannah Prowlers. Search in the long grass. Kill them until you've completed [15] Prowlers of the Barrens.

7. When that's done, head back to The Crossroads, turn in your quests, restock food and water, sell greys, and repair. Congrats on level 14!

Level 14

Get the following quests
  • [15] The Disruption Ends
  • [16] Echeyakee
  • [18] Stolen Silver
To Thunder Bluff!
 
Before you do anything else, look for Mankrik in The Crossroads. He's near the gate to the South. Since you turned 14, he now has two quests for you, [20] Consumed by Hatred and [20] Lost in Battle. 
Take them both. Now, remember that quest we DIDN'T get from Apothecary Helbrim? We're about to get it. 
Talk to him (He's in The Crossroads, near the Wind Rider Master) and get [15] Apothecary Zamah. 
For anyone who isn't Tauren, this quest is a waste of time experience wise, but we're going to do it anyway. Why? One reason. Flight paths. In this run, non-taurens will pick up flight paths for Camp Taurajo and Thunder Bluff, both very important places.
 
If you are Tauren..

Remember the long run you had to do just to get to The Crossroads? Well, it's about to pay off! Fly straight to Thunder Bluff and turn in [15] Apothecary Zamah. Zamah is found in the Pools of Vision, which is beneath Thunder Bluff's Spirit Rise. While you're there, pick up [18D] Serpentbloom. When you are done with him, find a trainer, pick up your level 14 spells, put any green items you collected on the auction house, repair, sell greys, or do anything else you need to in Thunder Bluff.
When you're all done, fly to Camp Taurajo. From there, head north to 49,50 and search the two tauren buildings you find for a corpse. "Talk" to it to complete [20] Lost in Battle, then hearthstone back to The Crossroads, and turn your quest in at Mankrik to the south side of the town.

If you are NOT Tauren..

This will be a long run, and will lower your exp rate a lot. But it's more than worth it for the flight paths, which you'll have to pick up eventually anyway.

Follow the road south towards Camp Taurajo. Note that Mankrik's Wife is on your route. Pop off the road, and talk to her. She can be found at 49,50, near a few small tauren buildings. When you've talked to her, head south a little more to Camp Taurajoand pick up the flight path. Then follow the road West and into Mulgore. Continue along the road until you reach Bloodhoof Village, and follow the road north. Eventually, it will lead you to Thunder Bluff.
When you get there, head to the Pools of Vision, underneath Spirit Rise. Turn in [15] Apothecary Zamah, and get the quest [18D] Serpentbloom from him. Now, go learn your level 14 spells (rogues and warlocks will have to fly to Orgrimmar), visit auction house, and take care of any other business you have in town. When you're done, fly back to The Crossroads.
While you are at The Crossroads, turn in your "Lost in Battle" quest at Mankrik.


1. The Samophlange. Head north to 52,12, where you will find a small Goblin hut, and a big piece of machinery. Inside the machinery is a Control Console. You'll have to kill a few Venture Co. Peons to get at it. Fight your way into it, and interact with it. Get the follow up.
Once that's done, you'll have to run a circle around the machinery, turning valves off. There are three in all, one at the left side, one at the right side, and one at the back. Clear off the area and use the valves. Some Peons spawn when you turn a valve, but it's nothing you can't handle. When you've turned all the valves, go back to the control console. Get the follow up.

2. Now you're being asked to retrieve a Console Key from Tinkerer Sniggles, who can be found inside the hut, at 53,11. He is level 16, and can easily be fought one on one. Loot him, then head back to the Control Console.

3. Clear off the mobs around the console again, interact with it, complete the quest. At this point, you can throw away the Control Console Operating Manual in your inventory. It does nothing but waste space.

4. Echeyakee. A fancy name for an easy mob. Move south towards 55,16. You'll find some tall grass, a few Savannah Prowlers, and some Kodo Bones sticking out from the ground. Kill off a few Prowlers, as many as it takes to get a nice clear area to fight Echeyakee. When you feel safe, search your inventory for your Horn of Echeyakee and blow it. The moment you do, Echeyakee will spawn, and more often than not, attack you immediately. Fight him off, and loot his hide.

5. Still moving south, head towards where we killed the Razormanes earlier. Head further East to around 58,24 and look for Razormane Geomancers and Razormane Defenders. Start killing these, and start moving south a little. There is a large camp at 58,26, filled mostly with Razormane Mystics, which you do not need. Inside the camp though, you'll find Kreenig Snarlsnout. Kill him, and once he's dead, start searching the camps where you found him. Look for a stack of orange boxes. These are Crossroads Supply Crates, and are needed for [14] Supplies for the Crossroads. Grab a box, and head south again, towards Ratchet.

6. Once you get to Ratchet, turn in [16] Samophlange at Sputtervalve and get the follow up, [14] Wenikee Boltbucket. Also turn in [16] Echeyakee and to get the follow up [17] The Angry Scytheclaws. Continue south towards the Pirates.

7. Fight your way past the pirates, and make your way towards 62,49.l There are two boxes for you to find here, and are fairly difficult to find. One is in a pirate camp, fairly close to the water. The other is in the west, fairly close to the mountains. Find them both. Once you have them, search for Baron Longshore, who you'll find in one of the nearby pirate camps. Kill him, and head back to Ratchet.

8. In Ratchet, head back to Gazlowe and turn in [16] WANTED Baron Longshore and [16] Stolen Booty. Also get [18] Raptor Horns from Mebok Mizzyrix, who is right next to the bank. If you aren't Level 15 now, you should be really, really close.
