This guide will help you quest in Netherstorm in an optimal way so that you don’t miss out on any quests or have to backtrack and do the same area multiple times for different quests where you can do them all at the same time. This will save you a lot of time allowing you to complete the zone faster and level up faster.

You need to be at least level 67 to start questing in Netherstorm, but 68+ is recommended. A quest addon like Questie is recommended if you want more exact locations on quest pickups and where to complete them
