Part 1

alliance leveing guide netherstorm part 1 steps 1 10
  1. Find Netherologist Coppernickels (21.8, 55.6) on the Gyro-Plank Bridge to accept quest 20xOff to Area 52.
  2. Take your next left and head towards the Ruins of Enkaar, where you’ll find Bot-Specialist Alley (31.4, 56.6). Talk to her to accept quest 20xRecharging the Batteries. Then head northwest to about (28, 51) to find Phase Hunters; attack them until you see the message “The Phase Hunter is very weak” and then use Alley’s Battery Recharging Blaster on them. Once they’re drained, kill them to charge the battery (I don’t know why this is necessary, maybe Alley is just a sadist). Once you’ve gotten to Battery Charge Level 10, you can return to Alley to turn in quest turn in x20Recharging the Batteries.
  3. Follow the road southeast to Area 52 (32, 62), and as you approach:
    1. Just inside the front entrance find Boots to accept quest 20xSecuring the Shaleskin Shale.
    2. Talk to Rocket-Chief Fuselage — you should be able to guess where you’ll find him — to turn in quest turn in x20Off to Area 52 and accept quest 20xYou’re Hired! Grats on your new job with the goblins.
    3. Check out the Wanted Poster to accept quest 20xWanted: Annihilator Servo! and quest 20xBreaking Down Netherock. Keep an eye on the chat from now on to see if anyone wants to do these quests, they both require another player or two.
    4. Go to the inn (32, 64.4) and make Area 52 your new home (Fun fact: the inkeeper’s name is a solfege for the Close Encounters of the Third Kind theme).
    5. [ALDOR] Speak with Exarch Orelis to accept quest 20x Distraction at Manaforge B’naar and quest 20xAssisting the Consortium
    6. [SCRYER] Speak with Spymaster Thalodien to accept quest 20xManaforge B’naar and quest turn in x20Assisting the Consortium.
    7. Exit the inn to find Nether-Stalker Khay’ji and turn in quest turn in x20 Assisting the Consortium (for both Aldor and Scryer), accept quest 20x Consortium Crystal Collection.
    8. In the southwest of town, see Ravandwyr to accept quest 20xThe Archmage’s Staff.
    9. Get the flight path on your left just outside the eastern gate from Krexcil (33.8, 64.0)
  4. Leave Area 52 heading north towards the Ruins of Enkaar, killing Shaleskin Flayers for quest 20xSecuring the Shaleskin Shale as you go. Find Maxx A. Million Mk. V (31.4, 56.6), accept quest 20xMark V is Alive! and complete its escort quest. As you escort the Mark V, you can look for Etherlithium Matrix Crystals — the red glowing crystals on the ground — collect them for quest 20xYou’re Hired! as you protect the robot. If you don’t collect 10 during the escort quest, go back into the ruins and find the rest before you proceed. Then talk to Bot-Specialist Alley (31.4, 56.6) to turn in quest turn in x20Mark V is Alive!
  5. Return to Area 52. Once there:
    1. Talk to Rocket-Chief Fuselage to turn in quest turn in x20You’re Hired! and accept quest 20xInvaluable Asset Zapping and quest 20xReport to Engineering.
    2. Go south across the bridge to Chief Engineer Trep to turn in quest turn in x20Report to Engineering and accept quest 20xEssence for the Engines.
    3. If you finished quest 20xSecuring the Shaleskin Shale already, talk to Boots before you leave and turn it in, then accept quest 20xThat Little Extra Kick.
  6. Go north again, and don’t forget to kill more Shaleskin Flayers if you still need to for Boots’ questline. If you are on quest 20xThat Little Extra Kick, kill Nether Rays instead. Also kill Mana Wraiths for quest 20xEssence for the Engines, and go back to Area 52 once you have what you need for both quests. The drop rate for the Shaleskin Shale can be pretty bad, check the map if you need to find other places to farm for it, and you can always just keep questing and kill Shaleskin Flayers as you find them.
  7. Return to Area 52:
    1. Turn in whatever quest you’re on to Boots. If you turn in quest turn in x20That Little Extra Kick, make sure you hang out for a bit to watch the fireworks.
    2. Speak with Chief Engineer Trep to turn in quest turn in x20Essence for the Engines and accept quest 20xElemental Power Extraction.
  8. Leave Area 52 heading west and make your way towards Manaforge B’naar.
    1. [ALDOR] Kill Magisters and Bloodwarders until you’ve completed quest 20xDistraction at Manaforge B’naar.
    2. [SCRYER] Take a right at the fork to find Captain Arathyn in a small camp on a hill at (27, 65), he’s riding a mount and should be easy to spot. Note that if you CC him at the start of the fight he won’t summon his mount as an add. Kill him and loot the B’naar Personnel Roster from him.
  9. Head southeast until you start finding Sundered Rumblers and Warp Aberrations; they should be near the crumbling edge of the map. Use your Elemental Power Extractor on them (you’ll know you did it right if they glow blue) and then kill them. They should drop blue crystals that you can pick up, note that the crystal will not be on the corpse but nearby instead.
  10. Once you have the 5 Elemental Power you need, go northeast to the Arklon Ruins (40, 72), then:
    1. You’ll need to use the Ultra Deconsolodation Zapper on 4 different objects here, they’re all relatively close together:
    2. Find the brazier at (40.9, 72.5) (all the roads in the ruins lead to it, it’s in the center of the place) and use your Conjuring Powder to summon the demon Ekkorash. Defeat the demon and loot Archmage Vargoth’s Staff.
    3. Find Pentatharon in the east of the ruins — kill him and loot the Arklon Crystal Artifact.

Part 2

alliance leveing guide netherstorm part 2 steps 1 8 fix

    4. [ALDOR] Find Exarch Orelis at the inn and turn in quest turn in x20 Distraction at Manaforge B’naar, accept quest 20x Measuring Warp Energies. Next to Orelis you’ll see Anchorite Karja, speak with her to acceptquest turn in x20Naaru Technology.
    5. [SCRYER] Talk to Spymaster Thalodien in the inn to turn in quest turn in x20 Manaforge B ‘naar, accept quest 20x High Value Targets. Nearby find Magistrix Larynna to accept quest 20x Bloodgem Crystals.
  2. Leave Area 52 and go to Camp Boom (34, 60). This quest can be a pain in the butt, as you might struggle to avoid the tiny bombs Dr. Boom sends out, and the Dr. hits pretty hard himself. You’re supposed to be able to run in, throw a Boom’s Doom, and run out while you wait for the cooldown. If you die, try resurrecting on top of the smallest oil drum to Dr. Boom’s right — this can sometimes make him unable to target you. You might have to experiment a bit to find the best place to stand where he won’t aggro.
  3. Once Dr. Boom is dead, head north to the Ruins of Enkaat, and kill Disembodied Draenor until you’ve collected 4 Flawless Crystal Shards for quest 20xRebuilding the Staff.
  4. Return to Area 52, talk to Ravandwyr (31.4, 66.2) to turn in quest turn in x20 Rebuilding the Staff and accept quest 20x Curse of the Violet Tower.

    1. Northern Pipeline – (25.4, 60.4)
    2. Western Pipeline – (21.2, 67.5)
    3. Southern Pipeline – ( 20.9, 71.0)
    4. After you measure the southern pipeline, go north and enter the manaforge, then find a console (23.2, 68.1) to turn in quest turn in x20 Naaru Technology and accept quest 20x B’naar Console Transcription. Then continue on your counter-clockwise collection of the measurements
    5. Eastern Pipeline – (28.9, 71.8)
  7. [SCRYER] Head west to reach Manaforge B’naar. Kill Sunfury Magisters until one of them drop a Bloodgem Shard. Then head to the nearest big red crystal and use the Bloodgem to complete the objectives for quest 20xBloodgem Crystals. While doing so, find and kill Sunfury Warp-Masters, Geologists (they can be found east of manaforge) and Warp-Engineers inside the manaforge for quest 20xHigh Value Targets.

    2. Leave this house and continue up the road, skip one house and then go “into” the next one and find the dresser at (56.4, 87.8). Use Luminrath’s Mantle near it.
    3. Skip another house and go into the one at the end of the road. In the front of the house you’ll find the Mana Bomb Fragment for The Unending Invasion (55.7, 87.2). Then enter the house just to the northwest and find the bookshelf at (55.5, 86.5) and use Belmara’s Tome near it.

If you get close enough, they’ll transform into the  Loathsome Remnant you need to kill/loot to complete quest 20xA Lingering Suspicion.

    • Clear the interior adds before you aggro him, and you can clear the ones outside if you plan on kiting him a lot.
    • Avoid the red circles on the ground by constantly moving, otherwise you’ll lose a lot of HP

    1. Start killing Sunfury Archers for quest 20xThe Sunfury Garrison, finish the objectives for this quest before you leave the area.
    2. Look for a Sunfury Flamekeeper to kill so you can steal their Flaming Torch. Once you have one, it will last for 5 minutes. Simply clear your way to one of the tents with a ballista near by. Stand in between the two objects and throw your torch, then wait for them to stop burning and repeat 3 more times.
    3. Head to (56, 79) near the center of the camp and wait for Spellbinder Maryana to show up (if she isn’t there), clear any nearby adds before engaging her.

Make sure you’re decently close when the mob dies (no long-ranged mage spells), and you’ll need to wait a few moments for Zeppit to collect the blood, so don’t go running off right after you kill the Warp Chaser. Also note that Zeppit can only drain one at a time, so don’t bother killing a bunch with AoE. Return to Sab’aoth and turn in quest turn in x20 Bloody Imp-ossible! once you’ve collected enough blood.

Kill the rest of what you need for quest 20xIn A Scrap With The Legion and find the rest of the Fel Reaver Parts for quest 20xOne Demon’s Trash…
  12. Head into the eco-dome and kill Ripfang Lynx (they hang out in the western side of the dome) for their pelts to complete Keeping Up Appearances. While doing so , look for the Ivory Bells you need for quest 20xNew Opportunities, they tend to grow near other plants.

  4. Leave the dome heading east, and head towards Doomclaw at (50.6, 57.2), who is underneath the pipeline, right before it curves downhill. If you don’t want to fight through mobs, head further east and swing around to approach him from the east. Kill him and grab Doomclaw’s Hand from his corpse.

      • Note: you can accept quest 20x Shutting Down Manaforge Ara if you want — it’s difficult to solo but simple with 3 players. If you choose to accept quest 20x the quest, it’s the same as the other ones — Go to Manaforge Ara, find the Overseer (26.2, 39.6), get the Access Crystal, use it on the console, defend the console.

    • When you’re ready, use the Scrap Reaver Controller to start the action. Use the Scrap Reaver to take aggro from Negatron and try to use low DPS abilities and spells so you don’t get targeted. Good luck! If you complete You, Robot, you should also accept quest turn in x20Back to the Chief! and turn it in with Rocket-Chief Fuselage the next time you’re in Area 52.
  9. Continue east over the bridge and head into the Eco-Dome. Find the lake at 46, 53 and start killing Barbscale Crocolisks until you’ve completed quest 20xDeal With the Saboteurs.

  11. Take the road north and slightly west through the dome and up to the bridge, then cross it to get to Stormspire. Continue on the road until you reach the bottom of the elevator, which is the entrance to Stormspire:
    1. Talk to Aurine Moonblaze at the bottom of the elevator to accept quest 20x Flora of the Eco-Domes.
    2. Ride the elevator up and go straight to find Ghabar and turn in quest turn in x20 To the Stormspire, accept quest 20x Diagnosis: Critical.
    3. Find Zephyrion. Speak with him to accept quest 20x Surveying the Ruins.
    4. Nearby, find Nether-Stalker Nauthis to accept quest 20x The Minions of Culuthas and quest 20xFel Reavers, No Thanks!
    5. Head up the ramp and take a left, go into the building with the Image of Nexus-Prince Haramad to turn in quest turn in x20 An Audience with the Prince and accept quest 20x Triangulation Point One.
    6. Exit the building, grab the flight path on your right, then go the other direction to find Audi the Needle. Speak with her to turn in quest turn in x20 The Dynamic Duo and accept quest 20x Retrieving the Goods.
    7. Down the ramp and to the left find the inn and make Stormspire your home.
  12. Leave town via the elevator you rode up on and head a bit away from the elevator to find Farahlon Lashers (they’re big flowers). Get them low HP, then use the Energy Field Modulator on them to mutate them and finish them off; do this until you’ve completed Flora of the Eco-Domes.
  13. Head to the north east part of the dome to find the Sutheron Generator (47.6, 26.8). Once at the generator, use the Diagnostic Device to obtain the Diagnostic Results.
  14. Leave the dome and go northeast to the Ruins of Farahlon (50, 24) and kill Hounds and Eyes of Culuthas for quest 20xThe Minions of Culuthas. Warlock players should consider enslaving an Eye of Culuthas as they cast a debuff that adds 50% spell effectiveness on the target. While killing the mobs, plant the Surveying Markers for quest 20xSurveying the Ruins:
    1. Follow the road up the hill, and take two lefts to find the banner for Marker One at (51.7, 20.5)
    2. Head back to the main path, and continue east. The road will loop around the hill, follow the road up and take a left to find Marker Two at (54.6, 22.8)
    3. Go back to the fork and take the other path to find Marker Three at (55.8, 19.9)
  15. Once done in the ruins, go back the way you came and follow the road west past Forge Base: Gehanna to Forge Base: Oblivion (40, 28). Kill Gan’arg Mekgineers in the area until you’ve collected 5 Condensed Nether Gas. Then find one of the Inactive Fel Reavers (they’re hard to miss) and right click it to load it up with gas to complete quest 20x Fel Reavers, No Thanks!
  16. Go southwest towards Tuluman’s Landing at (34, 38), just south of the bridge that leads to Manaforge Ara:

Talk to him and turn in quest turn in x20 Dealing with the Foreman, accept quest 20x Dealing with the Overmaster. Head to the northernmost part of the tunnel to find Overmaster Grindgarr, and kill him. Finish collecting Orders From Kael’thas for Damning Evidence before you leave.

Part 8

alliance leveing guide netherstorm part 8 steps 1 19
  1. Hearthstone back to Stormspire:
    1. Leave the inn heading left towards the elevator. Speak with Ghabar to turn in quest turn in x20 Diagnosis: Critical and accept quest 20x Testing the Prototype.
    2. See Zephyrion to turn in quest turn in x20 Surveying the Ruins.
    3. Speak with Nether-Stalker Nauthis next to Zephyrion, turn in quest turn in x20 The Minions of Culuthas and quest turn in x20Fel Reavers, No Thanks!, accept quest 20x The Best Defense.
    4. Take the elevator down, talk to Aurine Moonblaze to turn in quest turn in x20 Flora of the Eco-Domes, accept quest 20x Creatures of the Eco-Domes.
  2. quest 20xCreatures of the Eco-Domes is pretty much the same as the previous quest from Aurine — get the Talbuk Sires or Does low hp (you’ll get a Talbuk Sire/Doe has weakened message), then use the Talbuk Tagger on them. Unlike those dang flowers, the Talbuk won’t attack you after you use the quest item on them. (40, 35) is a good place to find Talbuk, as is (44, 28). Return to Aurine once finished, turn in quest turn in x20 Creatures of the Eco-Domes and accept quest 20x When Nature Goes Too Far.
  3. Head northeast to the lake at (44, 28) and find the hydra Markaru in the lake. Melee classes will have to swim down to his body to DPS him, and unfortunately he’ll sometimes use an ability that pushes you away. Easy kill, however. Once finished, grab the Hulking Hydra Heart and return to Aurine and turn in quest turn in x20 When Nature Goes Too Far.
  4. Leave the dome north to find the road, and head southwest to Tuluman’s Landing (34, 38):
    1. [ALDOR] Talk to Kaylaan and turn in quest turn in x20 A Dark Pact, accept quest 20x Aldor No More.
    2. Speak with Tuluman to turn in quest turn in x20 Dealing with the Overmaster.
    3. Holler at Nether-Stalker Oazul to turn in quest turn in x20 Neutralizing the Nethermancers.
  5. Follow the road northeast past Forge Base: Oblivion, then head north off the road at the entrance to the dome. Go to around (41, 24) and kill Wrathbringers until you complete quest 20xThe Best Defense.
  6. Continue northeast and go north at the fork to enter Eco-Dome Fairfield:
    1. You should find Tashar (44.6, 14.6) nearby. Speak with him to turn in quest turn in x20 Testing the Prototype and accept quest 20x All Clear!
    2. Begin killing nearby Scythetooth Raptors for your new quest.
    3. Also start searching for Dome Generator Segments for quest 20xRetrieving the Goods — they can be found in raptor nests.
    4. Once finished with both quest objectives, return to Tashar and turn in quest turn in x20 All Clear! Wait a bit for him to do his repairs, then speak with him again and accept quest 20x Success!
  7. Return to Stormspire and go up the elevator:
    1. Go straight to find Ghabar and turn in quest turn in x20 Success!
    2. See Nether Stalker Nauthis to turn in quest turn in x20 The Best Defense and accept quest 20x Teleport This!
    3. Head up the to Audi the Needle and turn in quest turn in x20 Retrieving the Goods.
  8. Go back down the elevator, then head north and slightly west to reach Forge Base: Gehenna. Once there, find the three teleporters: (42.3, 21.1), (41.1, 19.4), and (39.2, 20.4). Clear an area on one side so that you can approach a Forgelord close to the teleporter, and make sure you leave it alive. Use the Mental Interference Rod on the Forgelord — you should now be able to use the demon’s abilities to blow up the teleporters. If the demon aggros on you, just run away rather than killing it. Note that hunters and warlocks will have to dismiss their pet in order to control the demon, and warlocks can also simply use Enslave Demon rather than using the quest item. Players with add-ons for their hotbar also may have to disable them in order to properly access the pet menu for the demon — control + 5 should also be the default hotkey in case you don’t get the menu and don’t want to disable anything.
  9. Return to Stormspire and speak once more with Nether-Stalker Nauthis to turn in quest turn in x20 Teleport This!
  10. [ALDOR] Catch a gryphon to Area 52, and talk to Exarch Orelis in the inn to turn in quest turn in x20 Aldor No More — you can hearth back to Stormspire if you don’t want to fly back.
  11. Leave Stormspire and head north east through the Ruins of Farahlon — stay on the road as it curves southeast and cross the bridge to reach the Protectorate Watch Post (58, 31):
    1. Talk to Wind Trader Marid to accept quest 20x A Not-So-Modest Proposal.
    2. Find Researcher Navuud and accept quest 20x Electro-Shock Goodness!
    3. Nearby, speak with Commander Ameer and accept quest 20x The Ethereum.
    4. Talk with Professor Dabiri to accept quest 20x Recipe for Destruction.
    5. Find Flesh Handler Viridius, accept quest 20x Captain Tyralius from him, and don’t think too hard about what the title ‘Flesh Handler’ implies.
  12. Head back towards the bridge, and from the bridge go south west to the Ethereum Staging Grounds (56, 37):
    1. Once you run into the first Void Waste, drink Navuud’s Concoction and kill the Void Waste — it will split into globules, and you’ll need to kill those too. Stay in the area where you find the Void Wastes until you’ve completed quest 20xElectro-Shock Goodness! If you need to wait for a respawn, you can work on killing ethereums (see below).
    2. At the Ethereum Staging Grounds, kill Ethereum Assassins, Shocktroopers, and Researchers for quest 20xThe Ethereum.
    3. Captain Zovax patrols the camp, look for him and take him out.
    4. Once you’ve completed the quest objectives, go to Ethereum Transponder Zeta (56.8, 38.7) to speak with Ameer and turn in quest turn in x20 The Ethereum, accept quest 20x Ethereum Data.
    5. Nearby to the southwest (55.8, 39.9) you should be able to see the Ethereum Data Cell on the ground — grab it and return to the Image of Ameer to turn in quest turn in x20 Ethereum Data and accept quest 20x Potential For Brain Damage = High.
    6. Kill ethereals, and drink the essence they drop. Once you imbibe the ethereal goodness, you’ll be able to see Ethereum relays — destroy as many as you can before the buff wears off. The relays look like Eels and seem to only spawn above the water. Keep drinking the essence (just kill more mobs if you need more) and killing relays until you’ve collected the 15 Ethereum Relay Data you need, then return to the Image of Commander Ameer to turn in quest turn in x20 Potential For Brain Damage = High, accept quest 20x S-A-B-O-T-A-G-E.
    7. Go to the southern part of the Staging Grounds to find Ethereum Archons and Overlords. Watch them and wait for one to begin an animation where a purple cloud starts to form around them — kill them once the animation finishes and they should drop the Prepared Ethereum Wrapping you need. This quest seems bugged at times, so you may not see the animation, in which case you can attempt to just farm them like normal until one drops, or you can try abandoning and grabbing the quest again. Either way, once you’ve got what you need, return to Commander Ameer’s Image to turn in quest turn in x20 S-A-B-O-T-A-G-E, but don’t accept quest 20x Delivering the Message yet!
    8. This quest can be frustrating, but it’s doable with some prep. Before you accept quest 20x Delivering the Message, clear your way south to the conduit at (56.3, 42.8) — it’s the big glass pillar with a crystal at the top on the southeastern side of the camp — then run back and accept the quest. It should be much easier to escort the NPC to the objective now that the way is cleared.
    9. The final quest in this chain, Nexus-King Salhadaar, is also accepted from the Image of Commander Ameer at the Ethereum Transponder. However, it requires a group, so don’t bother trying to solo it; if you can’t get a group, just skip it.
  13. Find Warden Icoshock (55, 40), who is to your southwest hanging out by all the pink orbs. Kill him, take his Prison Key. Ignore the nearby prison balls, and instead head to the lonely prison ball to your west west at (53.3, 41.4) to free Captain Tyralius.
  14. Leave the staging grounds heading south, then go east up the hill to find Agent Araxes (59.4, 45) and accept quest 20x The Flesh Lies… then head east a bit to the entrance of the Access Shaft Zeon. Use the Protectorate Igniter on the corpses from as far away as possible as you move through the tunnel (just right-click it, you don’t have to target anything). Take your immediate left (it’s easy to miss, so use your minimap) and take the next two lefts as well find Agent Ya-six (60.8, 41.4). Speak with him to accept quest 20x Arconus the Insatiable. Behind Ya-six is the Teleporter Power Pack you need for quest 20xA Not-So-Modest Proposal, so grab it! Now return to the entrance and this time take the right-hand path until you find Arconus the Insatiable. Kill him, then leave the Access Shaft and talk to Agent Araxes to turn in quest turn in x20 The Flesh Lies…
  15. Head east and then north to loop around the eastern side of Manaforge Ultris. Once you see the first Seeping Sludge, drink Navuud’s Concoction and start killing them — they’ll split into globules that you need to destroy until you’ve completed the second objective of quest 20xElectro-Shock Goodness! Once you’ve cleared the first pool, follow the nearby road north up the hill and kill Voidshriekers and Unstable Voidwraiths to collect Fragments of Dimensius for quest 20xRecipe for Destruction. Stay in this area until you’ve completed both quests.
  16. Head northeast of the manaforge, to where the roads meet at (66.7, 33.9), then use the Triangulation Device in your inventory and you’ll be shown where to stand to complete Triangulation Point One.
  17. Head east to the Celestial Ridge, then clear your way down the ramp to reach the teleporter at (71.2, 39). Use it to speak with the Image of Wind Trader Marid to turn in quest turn in x20 A Not-So-Modest-Proposal and accept quest 20x Getting Down to Business.
  18. Kill Nether Drakes and Dragons until you’ve got all the Nether Dragon Essence you need. When finished, return to the teleport pad and speak with the Shrouded Figure (70.9, 38.8) just north of the pad to turn in quest turn in x20 Getting Down to Business and accept quest 20x Formal Introductions.
  19. Go north to (71.2, 35.1) to speak with Tyri to turn in quest turn in x20 Formal Introductions and accept quest 20x A Promising Start. Then wander the Celestial Ridge collecting Nether Dragonkin Eggs (they’re everywhere). Return to Tyri when finished to turn in quest turn in x20 A Promising Start and accept quest 20x Troublesome Distractions.
  20. Leave the Celestial Ridge and follow the road west back to the Protectorate Watch Post (58, 31). Once there:
    1. Speak with Professor Dabiri to turn in quest turn in x20 Recipe for Destruction and accept quest 20x On Nethery Wings.
    2. Find and speak with Flesh Handler Viridius, he should still be wandering around. Turn in quest turn in x20 Captain Tyralius with him.
    3. Talk to Researcher Navuud (59.2, 32.4) to turn in quest turn in x20 Electro-Shock Goodness!
    4. Speak with nearby Commander Ameer to turn in quest turn in x20 Arconus the Insatiable.
    5. Find Dealer Hazzin (58.4, 31.4) to turn in quest turn in x20 Triangulation Point One and accept quest 20x Triangulation Point Two.
    6. Talk to Wind Trader Marid (58, 31.5) and he’ll lead you to the edge of the camp. If you want to avoid fighting him with his guards, stay close to him the whole time he’s walking and then run past him to the rocks he’s standing near when he stops to talk to you. If done correctly, you can avoid pulling his 2 guards. However you do it, just make sure he’s dead at the end.
    7. Now we’re going to talk to the Netherdrake next to Professor Dabiri to begin quest 20xOn Nethery Wings. This is a super easy bombing mission, just start clicking the Phase Disruptor once you’re close to the mana-forge. Once it works, you’ll need to click it a few more times and then complete the quest. No aiming required! Speak to Dabiri to turn in quest turn in x20 On Nethery Wings once you land.
    8. If you want, you can accept quest 20x Dimensius the All-Devouring from Professor Dabiri. This quest is better done in a group, but can be soloed. When ready, talk to Captain Saeed, who stands in front of a group of soldiers, then follow him up the hill. With 2 people, one player can go find Captain Saeed when he respawns and send him back into battle. The trick is to not kill the adds in the fight, as while his adds are up, Dimensius will only use avoidable attacks. Ranged classes will want to stay in the hallway, healers should try to buff and heal Saeed. If you can’t find a group and fail soloing it, feel free to skip this.
  21. Go east back to the Celestial Ridge and talk to Tyri (71.2, 35.1) to turn in quest turn in x20 Troublesome Distractions. If you want, you can accept quest 20x Securing the Celestial Ridge, as it is easy with a partner or a group, manageable by yourself. If you choose to do this quest, accept it and head to the southeast edge of the ridge (72, 43). If you’re neutral with Netherwing, make sure you set your status to At War before you call Veraku. When ready, use the Challenge of the Blue Flight horn. The dragon that shows up can be cc’d, and should go down fairly easily.
  22. Hearthstone back to Stormspire, then leave the city and go west over the bridge to towards Manaforge Ara. Follow the path up the hill and once you reach a camp with mobs near (29, 41.2) use the Triangulation Device and it will give you a mark — stand where it shows you and you’ll complete the quest objective for quest 20xTriangulation Point Two. Go back over the bridge to find Wind Trader Tuluman (34.6, 37.8) on the other side, talk with him to turn in quest turn in x20 Triangulation Point Two, but don’t worry about accepting quest 20xFull Triangle, we’re almost done here.
  23. [SCRYER] Go back to Stormspire, then fly to Area 52 and speak with Spymaster Thalodien (32, 64) in the inn to turn in quest turn in x20 Damning Evidence, ignore the rest of the questline.
  24. If you want to go to a major city to train, shop, repair etc, do so now. Then, find your way to Allerian Stronghold in Terrokar Forest. Leave the stronghold and head east and slightly north to find the bridge (71, 50) over the easternmost river, cross it to enter Shadowmoon Valley.

Extra XP In Netherstorm

Grinding Mobs

Starting from level 67, you can begin farming Manaforge B’naar in the western part of Netherstorm. Mobs in this zone drop Sunfury Signets and Netherweave Cloth for extra gold. Area 52 is close by, so you shouldn’t have any problems with bag space, as you can quickly sell off trash and re-stock.

There’s a similar spot suitable for level 68-69 on the eastern side: Manaforge Duro. Drop, and mob density is identical to the previous location. In addition, Cosmowrench is nearby to sell loot and re-stock.
