This is a questing guide detailing an efficient method to obtain and complete quests in Wetlands.

For a list of all Wetlands quests in table format, see Wetlands quests.

Icon-warning-22x22 Note: This guide is not meant for power-leveling purposes. Rather, it is meant to show a player an efficient way to complete many 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).

Levels 20-30 in the Eastern KingdomsEdit

Adventurers that have reached level 20 they more choices in where to go next than they did at level 10. Wetlands and Duskwood both are logical next steps in the Eastern Kingdoms, while Ashenvale and Stonetalon Mountains provide a coutner balance in Kalimdor. Both pairs of zones offer a variety of quests and the most efficient method of reaching level 30 requires visiting all four. It once had been recommended to explore the nearest pair before taking the boat to the opposite continent, but with the opening of Stormwind's harbor such constraint is unnecessary. Hit each zone, run through a few quests and bounce on to another. Some quest chains require travel to other zones and are easy pickings with proper planning.

Somewhere in this time you'll probably want to visit The Stockades and Blackfathom Deeps instances before you hit level 30.

Where to go from hereEdit

After the easy and efficient questing is done in Wetlands, you'll want to review the Duskwood questing guide, Ashenvale questing guide and Stonetalon Mountains questing guide. Sometime soon you'll want to hit the Blackfathom Deeps instance and there are preparatory quests you'll want to gather for that. Review the Thousand Needles questing guide for hints about that zone when your character is in the upper 20's.
