This is a questing guide detailing the best method to obtain and complete quests in the northern Barrens. See the Southern Barrens questing guide for questing information in the higher level, southern part of the zone.

For a list of all Barrens quests in table format, see Barrens quests

Icon-warning-22x22 Note: This guide is not meant for power-leveling purposes. Rather, it is meant to show a player the most efficient way to complete all quests available for a particular zone. If you know of a better order or method to accomplish this, your input is welcome (in fact, greatly desired). For major changes, feel free to edit, but make a note in the talk page as to your reasoning.

Journey to the Crossroads Edit

Questing will begin in the Crossroads, which is located in the northern half of the Barrens. Tauren will have a bit of a hike to get here, while trolls and orcs should have less trouble coming from Durotar. Be sure to get the pull quests for your race before setting out, for a little extra XP.

The journey to the Crossroads (the main questing hub of the Barrens) looks a bit different depending on your race and class.

  • On Hunter Rise in Thunder Bluff, talk to IconSmall Tauren MaleOfficial horde mini-icon Melor Stonehoof to receive the quest Official horde mini-iconIconSmall Tauren MaleIconSmall Tauren Female [10] Sergra Darkthorn.
    • Ui-charactercreate-classes warrior Warriors: You should also pick up Official horde mini-icon Ui-charactercreate-classes warrior [10] Veteran Uzzek from your trainer before setting out. You will need to complete this quest after arriving at the Crossroads - see the orc and troll section below for details.
    • Ui-charactercreate-classes shaman Shaman: Make sure to pick up Official horde mini-icon Ui-charactercreate-classes shaman [10] Call of Fire from you shaman trainer before setting out. You will need to complete this quest after arriving at the Crossroads - see the orc and troll section below for details.
  • Head out of Mulgore to the southeast. You will come across a Horde outpost called Camp Taurajo.
  • Pick up Official horde mini-iconIconSmall Tauren MaleIconSmall Tauren Female [12] Journey to the Crossroads from IconSmall Tauren MaleOfficial horde mini-icon Kirge Sternhorn.
  • Continue along the road east from Taurajo, and take the north branch. Stay on the road, since the monsters in the area a much stronger than you are used to. You should eventually come to the Crossroads. When you arrive, turn in both quests.

IconSmall Undead MaleIconSmall Undead Female Undead and IconSmall Blood Elf MaleIconSmall Blood Elf Female Blood ElvesEdit

While undead and blood elves don't have any pull quests into the Barrens, it is most certainly a legitimate questing alternative to Silverpine Forest or The Ghostlands. However, keep in mind that adventuring in the Barrens will not accumulate Silvermoon City or Undercity reputation as quickly as adventuring in their respective zones.

To get to the Crossroads, these characters should take a zeppelin from the tower outside Undercity, arriving just south of Orgrimmar in Durotar. Head south along the road until you reach Razor Hill, then turn west. Pass through Far Watch Post and into the Barrens. Continue to follow the road west until it forks, then head south. You should arrive at the Crossroads.

  • To the north of the burrow is the oasis called the Forgotten Pools. Head there, killing centaurs along the way for their bracers. Enter the water and swim down to the bottom to of the pool. Find the cracked rocks with bubbles coming out of them and swim near them to complete Official horde mini-icon [13] The Forgotten Pools.
  • Loot the mushrooms around the pool to collect 4 Inv misc dust 01 [Fungal Spores].
  • Next, head to the platform southwest of the pool and kill IconSmall Centaur MaleCombat 15 Barak Kodobane, looting his head.
  • While in this area, you can head up to the northwest and kill harpies for Official horde mini-icon [15] Harpy Raiders.
  • Return to the burrow south of the pool and turn in Official horde mini-icon [15] Kolkar Leaders and pick up the next quest, Official horde mini-icon [18] Verog the Dervish. The centaur bracers quest can be completed during future attacks on the centaur.

  • Make sure you have gathered all the quests available, then follow the coast south.
  • When you reach the pirate camps, kill 12 Combat 15 Southsea Brigands and 6 Combat 15 Southsea Cannoneers. If you come across IconSmall Human MaleCombat 15 Baron Longshore, kill him and loot his head.
    • Ui-charactercreate-classes rogue Rogues: You can find (and kill) IconSmall Troll MaleCombat 15 Tazan for the quest Official horde mini-icon Ui-charactercreate-classes rogue [13] The Shattered Hand in the open field next to the first bandit camp. Make sure to loot his satchel, and return to Orgrimmar to complete the quest.
  • Return to Ratchet and turn in the two quests (if you happened to defeat the baron). Then complete the Official horde mini-icon [14] The Missing Shipment and Official horde mini-icon [14] The Missing Shipment (2), and accept the next quest in the chain.
  • Head back out of Ratchet to the south. The camps containing the two stolen items are the southernmost two camps. Make sure to also kill IconSmall Human MaleCombat 15 Baron Longshore along the way if you haven't yet.

Just open the chest on the lowest level of the inside of the ship. Be sure to use your Inv misc food wheat 02 [E.C.A.C.] on IconSmall ParrotCombat 15 Polly when he spawns. In addition, the chests higher up inside the ship are a great place to practice your lockpicking.
  • Return to Ratchet to turn in the quests.

  • The next objective is to hunt IconSmall SaberCombat 15 Savannah Prowlers for their Inv gauntlets 01 [Prowler Claws] and Inv misc bone 05 [Savannah Lion Tusks]. They can be found all around the plateau above Ratchet. Kill them until you complete Official horde mini-icon [15] Prowlers of the Barrens.
  • Return to the Crossroads and turn in Official horde mini-icon [15] Prowlers of the Barrens, picking up the follow-up, Official horde mini-icon [16] Echeyakee
  • If you have Official horde mini-icon [14] The Demon Seed, head east to Far Watch Post and pick up a Inv misc gem diamond 02 [Flawed Power Stone] (note that this quest is timed). Head back to the fork in the road and head north. You will see a large mountain called Dreadmist Peak to your left. Circle around to the north side of the mountain and make your way up the path there until you reach the top. At the top, use the power stone to summon a demon and defeat him. After this, you can head east to reach the samophlange area.
  • If you don't have that quest, simply leave the Crossroads on the north path, and continue north past the fork in the road. Remember to kill plainstriders and lions along the way for their Inv misc bone 05 [Savannah Lion Tusks] and Inv misc organ 05 [Plainstrider Kidneys].
  • As you reach the pass through the mountains leading out of the Barrens to the north, you will see a strange device guarded by many Venture Company workers to the east. Be cautious, as the guards are quite close together and also respawn very quickly. Interact with the device's console to complete Neutral 15 [14] Samophlange.
  • The next part of the quest chain requires you to interact with three valves around the device. Do this, then interact with the console again.
  • You will need the Inv misc key 14 [Console Key] from the goblin in the hut to the east, IconSmall Goblin MaleCombat 15 Tinkerer Sniggles. Once you have it, return to the console to complete the quest and receive the next.
  • Head south from here and slightly to the east, skirting the mountain. You will come across some bones on the ground just east of the mountain. This is where you will summon IconSmall SaberCombat 15 Echeyakee. Blow the Inv misc horn 01 [Horn of Echeyakee] to summon him and defeat him, then loot Inv misc pelt wolf ruin 04 [Echeyakee's Hide].
    • Ui-charactercreate-classes hunter Hunters: Echeyakee is a very unique color cat, with only one other like him in the game (IconSmall SaberCombat 15 Sian-Rotam), and is considered a rare pet. Since you won't have a chance to summon him again (unless you get someone on the quest to summon him for you), carefully consider whether you want him as a pet before completing the quest. If you do decide to tame him, you will need to abandon and re-accept the quest in order to get the horn back to summon him again.
  • Visit the Crossroads and Ratchet to turn in the completed quests and pick up the follow-ups. Those who had Official horde mini-icon [14] The Demon Seed should return to Far Watch Post to turn it in.

  • The Sludge Fen can be found east of Wenikee's hut. You will need to collect parts from the buckets scattered about as you go.
  • North of the sludg pool is a goblin in a shredder. Speak with him to receive Official horde mini-icon [18] Ignition.
  • Now head to the tower on the south edge of the pool and kill IconSmall Goblin MaleCombat 15 Supervisor Lugwizzle for the Inv misc key 06 [Ignition Key].
  • Return to Wizzlecrank north of the pool and turn in the next quest, accepting the follow up.
  • Escort the shredder out of the area. This shouldn't be too hard for characters around level 18. Make sure the shredder is close enough when you attack something that it will join in to help. Towards the end of the escort, two goblins will spawn and attack at once.
  • Make sure you have enough Inv misc gear 01 [Nugget Slugs], then return to IconSmall Goblin FemaleNeutral 15 Wenikee Boltbucket to the northwest.
  • Ui-charactercreate-classes rogue Rogues: Rogues who are around level 20 can complete their poison quests (Official horde mini-icon [20] Deep Cover and Official horde mini-icon [24] Mission: Possible But Not Probable) at the tower just north of here. For more information, see the rogue note in the Boulder Lode Mine section below.
  • Before heading back to town, go to the Dry Hills in the north-western corner of the zone to compelte Official horde mini-icon [16] Harpy Lieutenants. The harpy slayers can be found deeper into the area. There is an rare elite which spawns in the area who can quickly kill the unwary, so watch out for her.

  • Head south of the Crossroads to the Lushwater Oasis and search for IconSmall Centaur MaleCombat 15 Hezrul Bloodmark. Kill him and loot his head.
  • Return to the burrow south of the Forgotten Pools. Speak with IconSmall Orc MaleOfficial horde mini-icon Regthar Deathgate to turn in the quest.
  • Make sure you are ready before starting the next quest, as you will be asked to defend against a powerful centaur attack. It may be wise to bring several people along for this quest. During the attack, an elite warlord with several guards will spawn. Try to let the defenders help with him if you are alone. Even if you die but the elite is killed afterwards, you can still complete the quest since the item is actually looted by interacting with the banner that spawns after his death.
  • Turn in the quest to Regthar in the burrow.

  • Fly to Ratchet and head south along the coast until you come to Northwatch Hold.
  • Enter the gates and head to the right. Kill troops along the way to collect Inv jewelry amulet 02 [Theramore Medals]. Continue up the path until you see a tower to your left. At the top of this tower you will find IconSmall Human FemaleCombat 15 Captain Fairmount. Kill her, then continue up the path. You will come to two other towers, one to your left and one to your far right. These contain IconSmall Human MaleCombat 15 Cannoneer Whessan and IconSmall Human MaleCombat 15 Cannoneer Smythe.
  • Be sure you have enough Inv jewelry amulet 02 [Theramore Medals], then return to the bottom of Captain Fairmount's tower. Here you will find an elf, IconSmall HighElf MaleNeutral 15 Gilthares Firebough. You will be escorting Gilthares all the way back to Ratchet. By this point, the only mobs who should be a threat to you are those in Northwatch itself, so you may want to clear the area before starting his quest. When you are ready, speak with him and accept his quest.
  • Once you have escorted the elf back to Ratchet, speak with IconSmall HighElf MaleNeutral 15 Captain Thalo'thas Brightsun to turn in the quests.

Where to go from here Edit

At this point, you are most likely around level 20. One obvious option for future questing is to continue to the southern Barrens (see the Southern Barrens questing guide. The southern Barrens is good for question up to around level 27, after which players can quest in Thousand Needles or move on to a level 30 zone. However, there are several other good areas for questing at this point.

Stonetalon Mountains (LVL 15-27)Edit

The Stonetalon Mountains lie to the northwest of the Barrens. Quests there involve killing, looting, and otherwise interrupting Venture Company operations in the area; putting an end to night elf activity on the peak; and curbing the harpies of the Charred Vale. Be sure to pick up the quests Neutral 15 [20] Deepmoss Spider Eggs and Neutral 15 [21] Ziz Fizziks from Ratchet and Official horde mini-icon [20] Letter to Jin'Zil from the Crossroads before heading out. See the Stonetalon Mountains questing guide for more information.

Ashenvale forest is the ancestral home of the night elves, and lies to the north of the Barrens. Quests there involve combating encroaching demons and satyrs, and The Ashenvale Hunt. Pick up the quest Official horde mini-icon [19] Report to Kadrak (Barrens) from the Crossroads and trade it in for Official horde mini-icon [19] The Warsong Reports at the Mor'shan Rampart before heading to Ashenvale. See the Ashenvale questing guide for more informarion.

Hillsbrad Foothills (LVL 20-30)Edit

The Hillsbrad Foothills can be found across the sea in Lordaeron. Most of the quests in this area involve helping the Forsaken of Tarren Mill become the dominant force in the hills, and crush the human resistance in Hillsbrad and Southshore. To that end, players will be sent on various missions which include killing the inhabitants of Hillsbrad and gathering ingredients for a new plague.
