This Classic questing guide is intended for Alliance Rogues who want to achieve the following objectives:

  • Complete all reputation quests at the optimum level
  • Improve your leveling efficiency and effectiveness
  • Reap various benefits of professions while leveling
  • Focus on lower level mobs to make leveling easier
  • Eliminate the need for grinding mobs to fill in gaps

While this guide is Rogue-specific, the leveling route laid out in this guide should be useful to any Alliance player looking to maximize their reputation gain and complete all quests at the appropriate level (before they turn gray). This is not a speed leveling guide nor a powerleveling guide, but rather a quest completionist guide designed for optimal reputation gain.

With this quest plan, you want the majority of your experience (XP) to come from quests and not the mobs themselves. It's going to seem counterintuitive, but with this leveling strategy, you will always prefer to minimize XP from mobs by only killing the number of mobs required to complete each quest objective and focusing on fighting lower level green/gray mobs when you do. Even better, group up with other players to complete kill quests and reduce your overall experience received. When completing solo exploration and delivery quests, simply stealth past any mobs that get in your way. Also, when you log out, don't log out in a city or inn to avoid getting excessive rest experience which could throw off the carefully designed questing plan.


Level 1: Complete your first starter zone quests

  • Create your Human Rogue (or create a Dwarf, Gnome or Night Elf Rogue and run them directly to Northshire to begin questing).
  • Starting in Northshire, get the quest A Threat Within from Deputy Willem.
  • Go inside Northshire Abbey to turn in A Threat Within (40xp) to Marshal McBride and get Kobold Camp Cleanup.
  • Return to Deputy Willem, get the quest Eagan Peltskinner, then run around the left side of the building to turn in Eagan Peltskinner (85xp).
  • Get the quest Wolves Across the Border from Eagan Peltskinner.
  • Head west then around to the north, focusing your attacks on level 1 Young Wolves and Kobold Vermin.

When attacking a mob that's facing you, run up, jump into the air, spin around to face their backside and start your attacks from behind. Attacking from behind (at least to start battle) is a good habit to get into, because enemies cannot parry from behind and some of your Rogue abilities will eventually rely on positioning.

Level 2: Continue your starter zone quests

  • Kill just enough level 1 Young Wolves and level 1 Kobold Vermin to complete each quest, then return to Northshire Abbey.
  • Turn in Wolves Across the Border (150xp, Wolfskin Bracers) to Eagan Peltskinner, equip the bracers and sell junk (all gray items are junk) to the vendors.
  • Turn in Kobold Camp Cleanup (150xp) to Marshal McBride inside Northshire Abbey then get Investigate Echo Ridge and Encrypted Letter (Humans).

Level 3: Questing and saving copper to start gathering professions

  • Go back outside and get Brotherhood of Thieves from Deputy Willem.
  • Go around the east side of the building to turn in Encrypted Letter (50xp) to Jorik Kerridan (but don't buy any skills yet).
  • Go north and west to kill 10 Kobold Workers, then return to Northshire Abbey and sell junk.
  • Turn in Investigate Echo Ridge (250xp) to Marshal McBride inside Northshire Abbey and get Skirmish at Echo Ridge.
  • Go northwest to the entrance of the mine and carefully pull single Kobold Laborers with your Small Throwing Knives.

If you accidentally pull a 2nd enemy, run away, throw another knife to kite the 1st enemy until the 2nd stops chasing, then kill the 1st mob. If the caves are crowded with players waiting for Kobold Laborers, group up to get through this quest quicker (and reduce the total mob xp).

  • Carefully make your way deeper into the mine until you've killed all 12 Kobold Laborers then hearth to Northshire.
  • Turn in Skirmish at Echo Ridge (450xp, Outfitter Belt) to Marshal McBride inside Northshire Abbey and get Report to Goldshire.

Level 4: Use gathering professions to get an early weapon upgrade

  • Head south out of Northshire and get Rest and Relaxation from Falkhaan Isenstrider.
  • Go through the arch and turn right going west, closely hugging the northern hills, avoiding Defias Cutpurses until you reach a light post.
  • Go north up the path into the hills to your right until you reach the house of the Herbalism trainer outside Stormwind City.
  • Learn Apprentice Herbalism (10c) from Herbalist Pomeroy and turn on your Herbalism "radar". Save all herbs unless you need quick cash.

If you absolutely have to sell some herbs, only sell Peacebloom and never sell Silverleaf or Earthroot as you'll need more of them later on.

  • Go back down the path, then turn right, and go west around the Defias Cutpurses until you reach the other road.
  • Take that road south towards Goldshire, picking herbs and avoiding all mobs.

If you get attacked by a hostile mob, you can kite them to a nearby Stormwind Guard patrolling the road who will deal with the threat.

  • Head south into Goldshire and turn in Report to Goldshire (230xp) to Marshal Dughan.
  • Go inside the inn and turn in Rest and Relaxation (100xp, 5 Small Pumpkin) to Innkeeper Farley.
  • Go outside and buy a Skinning Knife (82c) from the Trade Supplies vendor, Tharynn Bouden, under the covered cart.
  • Go northeast past the Goldshire Inn to the Skinning/Leatherworking house next to the Crystal Lake dock.
  • Grab the Refreshing Spring Water (free loot) from the Water Barrel on the dock then learn Skinning (10c) from Helene Peltskinner inside.

From now on, kill and skin all level 1-3 critters (rabbits, cows, deer, and especially sheep for Wool Cloth) and keep all scraps and skins unless you need cash. When your health gets low, use that downtime to kill/skin surrounding critters while you naturally heal up (assuming no enemies are around). Anytime you see a critter or a dead, looted beast, consider that a free resource waiting around to be gathered, just like any other herb.

  • Do a quick circle around Goldshire, picking herbs and killing/skinning critters, but avoiding killing higher level mobs that will give XP.
  • Go inside the building across the road from the Goldshire Inn, sell the Refreshing Spring Water and enough skins/herbs to reach 4s.
  • Sell your Worn Dagger and buy a Stiletto (4s1c) from Corina Steele. This is the best dagger you'll find and will last you for 5+ levels.
  • Pick herbs and kill/skin critters on your way back to Northshire. Go left through the arch and skin critters around the hills to the west.
  • Return east to Northshire Abbey and sell enough skins/herbs to reach 1s10c to buy your initial skills (or 2s10c if you also want Backstab).
  • Go around the east side of the building to buy your skills (Stealth, Pick Pocket, Optional: Backstab) from Jorik Kerridan.
  • Put the skills on your action bar, go into stealth, and put skills on that bar too (with Sinister Strike/Backstab on the same attack slot).
  • Unstealth and go east across the river to resume questing in and around Northshire Vineyards while skinning all critters in the area.

You should notice a significant improvement in your effectiveness, partly because you're a level higher but mostly because of the new dagger. As a Rogue, your most important piece of gear is your main hand weapon. The higher the average damage, the harder your special attacks hit. Previously, you could barely handle one enemy at a time, whereas now you should be able to safely take on two without breaking a sweat.

  • Go into stealth, get behind a lone Defias Thug, use Pick Pocket, then finish the mob off with Backstab/Sinister Strikes/Eviscerate.

When you're using Stealth around equal or higher level mobs you need to be very careful to sneak up behind them or else you risk being seen. Pick Pocket allows you to get extra loot, including occasional healing potions, which will eventually be life savers in difficult situations. If you get any Minor Healing Potions from pick pocketing, put them on your action bar.

Backstab, despite being a fairly powerful attack, can often be frustrating to use for leveling. You must be using a main hand dagger, you must be behind your target and it costs 60 energy. The positional requirement can be especially annoying, sometimes forcing you to Gouge an enemy just to get yourself into place for your next attack.

Now it's time for a more advanced technique - - the jumping stealth attack.

  • Run towards a lone Defias Thug, jump for forward momentum, stealth in mid-air then quickly get behind, pick pocket and finish them off.

Doing this allows you to save time (since stealthing is so slow) by getting as close as you possibly can before entering stealth. The key to this technique is knowing exactly how close you can get before you need to jump and stealth prior to being pulled into combat. The aggro radius varies depending upon the level difference between you and each mob, so it will take a little trial and error to perfect.

  • Continue this process, killing your way through Defias Thugs for 12 Red Burlap Bandanas then return to Northshire Abbey.

Level 5: Finish Northshire quests then start up Fishing and Cooking

  • Turn in Brotherhood of Thieves (360xp, weapon) to Deputy Willem, get Bounty on Garrick Padfoot and Milly Osworth.
  • Go back east across the river to collect Milly's Harvest from crates around the field while avoiding combat as much as possible.
  • Stealth your way further east to Garrick Padfoot. Quickly kill him and loot his head then return to Northshire.
  • Turn in Milly's Harvest (180xp) to Milly Osworth on the east side of Northshire Abbey and get Grape Manifest.
  • Turn in Bounty on Garrick Padfoot (340xp, Layered Tunic) to Deputy Willem and go inside Northshire Abbey.
  • Go up to the very top of the spiral stairs to turn in Grape Manifest to Brother Neals (360xp, Wine-stained Cloak).
  • Return south to Goldshire as you kill/skin critters, pick herbs and avoid battles.
  • Do a quick circle around Goldshire, picking herbs and skinning critters, then buy a Fishing Pole (23c) from Tharynn Bouden under the cart.

To reduce the chance for missed catches, you might also want to buy a Shiny Bauble (50c) to help out in your first 10 minutes of fishing.

  • Go back to the Skinning/Leatherworking building, go out on the dock, grab the Refreshing Spring Water and learn Fishing (1s) from Lee Brown.

Fishing might seem slow, boring and pointless, but you will eventually be reaping multiple short term and long term benefits from it. Within 45 minutes, you'll have 75 Fishing, 75 Cooking and plenty of great low level food, 4x better than any other food at your level. Later on, Fishing provides you with buff food, free loot, some easy quests, Alchemy reagents and even lock boxes to level your lock picking. Since you won't be grinding mobs for meat with this questing plan, fish will be your main source for skilling up Cooking as you level.

  • Equip the fishing pole, put Fishing on your action bar and cast the line. When the bobber splashes, use Shift + right-click on your mouse to loot the fish.

Your initial goal is to fish for 50 Brilliant Smallfish to level up your cooking, after which you'll be able to cook Longjaw Mud Snapper.

  • Fish from the dock until you reach level 25 (approximately 10 minutes), then get more Refreshing Spring Water from the Water Barrel.
  • Make another circle around Goldshire, picking herbs and beating critters with a fishing pole before skinning them. Your bags should be getting full.

Assuming you haven't looted more bags, you'll need to manage your bag space wisely. Rather than buy more bags (5s), save your money for now.

  • Sell the Refreshing Spring Water, all inferior food and any non-fish junk you may have collected from fishing.

Organize your bag so it only contains the following items:

  • 1 Hearthstone
  • 1 Stiletto/Fishing Pole (these two items take turns sharing the same slot)
  • 1 Skinning Knife
  • 1 stack of Peacebloom (try to keep a stack, but you can sell some if you really need to)
  • 1 stack of Silverleaf (try not to sell any of these until after you have a full stack)
  • 1 stack of Light Leather (try to gather a full stack, and sell anything more than that)
  • 3-5 stacks of Ruined Leather Scraps (you may need to hold onto more until you've gathered a full stack of Light Leather)
  • 1 stack of Minor Healing Potions (try not to sell these unless you really need to)
  • 2-4 stacks of raw fish (you will be cooking these soon)

Total: 13-16 slots of your 16 slot bag

  • Return to the dock to continue fishing until level 50, then make another circle around Goldshire, picking herbs and skinning critters.

You may be approaching 50 Skinning by now, but don't learn Journeyman Skinning just yet, because you'll be temporarily dropping it soon.

  • Return to Tharynn Bouden, sell junk and buy the Recipe: Brilliant Smallfish (40c).
  • Go inside the inn, learn Apprentice Cooking (1s) from Tomas, then cook up and sell all Brilliant Smallfish.

Upon reaching level 20 with 100 Cooking and 50 Herbalism, you'll be able to harvest and make your own Thistle Tea, improving your overall effectiveness.

  • Sell skins/herbs to reach 5s (and free up space), learn Journeyman Fishing from Lee Brown and fish up the rest of the 50 Brilliant Smallfish.
  • Make another circle around Goldshire, picking herbs and skinning critters, then cook and sell all Brilliant Smallfish to get to 50 Cooking.
  • Go outside the inn, pick herbs and skin critters, then sell skins/herbs to reach 4s and buy Recipe: Longjaw Mud Snapper from Tharynn Bouden.
  • Cook Longjaw Mud Snapper until you reach 75 Cooking, save any remaining raw fish and sell all food except a stack of Longjaw Mud Snapper.

From now on, use Longjaw Mud Snapper to quickly heal yourself up (it heals faster than Linen Bandages, however it can't be used in battle.)

  • Make one final circle around Goldshire, picking herbs and skinning critters, then head northwest into Stormwind City (85xp).

STORMWIND CITY

  • Get Wine Shop Advert from Renato Gallina as you walk in and Harlan Needs a Resupply from Harlan Bagley in the Lionheart Armory further ahead.
  • Go to the bank to put in all Ruined Leather Scraps, Light Leather and any uncooked Raw Longjaw Mud Snapper to save for later.
  • Walk west through the tunnel towards the canal, go right and turn in Harlan Needs a Resupply to Rema Schneider (85xp, 17c).
  • Get Package for Thurman then go south to the Gallina Winery to turn in Wine Shop Advert (130xp, Bottle of Pinot Noir) to Suzetta Gallina.
  • Sell the Bottle of Pinot Noir then go west across the bridge and left through the tunnel into Mage Quarter.
  • Go up the hill and to the right to turn in Package for Thurman to Thurman Schneider at Larson Clothiers (130xp).
  • Go northeast across the city to take the Deeprun Tram to Ironforge. While waiting for the tram, set your action bars/macros/keybindings.

IRONFORGE

  • Leave the Deeprun Tram going into Ironforge (85xp), go west and north into the Great Forge to grab the flight path (FP).
  • Head to the southwest and out through the Gates of Ironforge (65xp).

DUN MOROGH

  • Walk down the sloping road from the Ironforge Gate, then at the bottom, turn left onto the road going south to Kharanos (45xp).
  • Kill/skin critters and pick herbs as you go south to Kharanos, staying close to the road, then go into the inn on the left.
  • Set your hearthstone at Kharanos.
  • If you can afford them, buy Small Brown Pouches for 5s each from Kreg Bilm and upgrade to Balanced Throwing Daggers for 30c.
  • Learn First Aid (1s) from Thamner Pol, then begin making bandages out of any Linen Cloth you find throughout your travels.
  • When your health is low, make Linen Bandages and you'll find that at low levels you'll heal up in the time it takes to make them.
  • Leave the inn and go southwest along the road to Coldridge Pass (35xp).

When you get to the tunnel, zoom in your camera for a better view, then stealth/pick pocket the Rockjaw Raiders, but don't kill any of them. If one of them aggros, run through the rest of the tunnel until you escape out the other side.

  • Go down the hill to the Dwarf/Gnome starting area.
  • Sell all junk then get Dwarven Outfitters from Sten Stoutarm (even if it's gray).
  • Kill/loot Ragged Young Wolves and skin critters then turn in Dwarven Outfitters (80xp) to Sten Stoutarm and get Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery.
  • If the Encrypted Rune (Dwarf) or Encrypted Memorandum (Gnome) quest is offered to you, take it and turn it in (50xp) to Solm Hargrin.
  • Get A New Threat from Balir Frosthammer then go back east towards the hillside and pick pocket/kill Rockjaw Troggs and Burly Rockjaw Troggs.
  • Go back west to the Dwarf/Gnome starting area and turn in A New Threat (200xp, Bear Shawl) to Balir Frosthammer and sell all junk.

Level 6: Work on Coldridge Valley quests then continue to Teldrassil

  • Go north into Anvilmar, get a Refugee's Quandary from Felix Whindlebolt and buy Cracked Leather Boots from Durnan Furcutter and equip them.
  • Buy skills (Sinister Strike Rank 2, Gouge) for 2s from the Rogue Trainer, Solm Hargrin, and put Gouge on your action bar.

Gouge is mainly a delay ability, giving you time to use a partial bandage, kite a mob, or slow down a mob you want to escape or avoid.

  • Leave Anvilmar, heading west along the road to turn in Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery (200xp) to Talin Keeneye.
  • Get Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery Pt. 2 and The Boar Hunter from Talin Keeneye.
  • Kill/skin Small Crag Boars around the area then turn in The Boar Hunter (250xp, Dwarven Leather Pants) to Talin Keeneye and equip your pants.
  • Continue south along the road and turn in Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery Pt 2. (270xp, 7c) to Grelin Whitebeard and get The Troll Cave.
  • SKIP Scalding Mornbrew Delivery from Nori Pridedrift (for now).
  • Go due west to the first of three troll camps to kill Frostmane Trolls while picking up all of Felix's gear.
  • Get Felix's Box then go southeast to the next camp to get Felix's Chest, then east to the Troll Cave entrance for Felix's Bucket of Bolts.
  • Kill any Frostmane Trolls you still need then go north to turn in The Troll Cave (360xp, weapon) to Grelin Whitebeard. SKIP The Stolen Journal.
  • If you are more than 1,250xp away from level 7, then get Scalding Mornbrew Delivery from Nori Pridedrift, otherwise skip it for now.
  • Return northeast to Anvilmar.
  • Turn in Refugee's Quandary (250xp, 50c) to Felix Whindlebolt.
  • Turn in Scalding Mornbrew Delivery (230xp) to Durnan Furcutter and get Bring Back the Mug.
  • Hearth to Kharanos.
  • Sell junk and buy Small Brown Pouches for 5s each from Kreg Bilm.

Closely follow the exact route listed below to avoid getting extra exploration experience.

  • Leave the inn and go north up the road then get onto the road going east across Dun Morogh.
  • Go northeast through North Gate Pass and North Gate Outpost (85xp) into Loch Modan.

LOCH MODAN

  • Head east out of the tunnel to Algaz Station (85xp).
  • Pick herbs next to the road then go south or die and rez to the south outside Thelsamar (85xp).
  • Grab the Thelsamar FP then go back north, picking herbs close to the road, past Algaz Station and into the tunnel.
  • Go north through the tunnel until you reach Dun Algaz (85xp) then jump straight off the cliff in front of you to your death into Wetlands.

WETLANDS

  • Rez at the graveyard then carefully go west towards Menethil Harbor, hugging the rock wall on the left until you reach the Dragonmaw Raiders.
  • Move closer to the road to get past them, then get back over to the left, climbing along the rock wall to avoid the crocolisks on the right.
  • Wait for the best opening, then run west on the road past the raptors and crocolisks, hugging/hopping over obstacles to slow them down.
  • You should reach Sundown Marsh (85xp) before you eventually die and rez at the Baradin Bay graveyard, but it may take another graveyard run.
  • From the Baradin Bay graveyard, swim south and go west over the bridge to Menethil Harbor (85xp).

As you travel in and around water, always keep an eye out for pools of Floating Wreckage that you can fish for free loot. Ideally, you'd like to score one or more Watertight Trunks, which are the equivalent of floating treasure chests. If so, you might be able to get enough silver selling the loot to buy a full set of 4 bags, which will make bag organization much easier.

  • Repair your dagger and fishing pole then get the FP.

To maximize your chance to catch fish/loot here, you can buy a Shiny Bauble (50c) or Nightcrawlers (1s) from Stuart Fleming on the dock.

  • Make a quick circle around the peninsula of Menethil Harbor looking for pools of Floating Wreckage, while watching for hostile mobs.

When fishing at a pool of Floating Wreckage, keep recasting your line until it lands in the circle.

  • When you're done fishing for loot, save all raw fish and sell anything you don't want to keep.
  • Go out to the right (northern) dock to Darkshore. While waiting for the ship, get in some more fishing.

DARKSHORE

  • Check for pools of Floating Wreckage on the outer end of the dock, but stay away from the town of Auberdine to avoid the extra 85xp.
  • Run across to the other dock to Teldrassil and get in some more fishing while waiting for the ship (save all Darkshore Groupers for a quest).

RUT'THERAN VILLAGE

  • When you arrive in Rut'theran Village (85xp), buy Recipe: Slitherskin Mackerel (40c) from Nessa Shadowsong (but try to save 2s25c).
  • Get the FP then take the glowing teleporter to Darnassus (85xp).

DARNASSUS

  • Get The Temple of the Moon from Sister Aquinne behind you.
  • If you don't have 2s25c, then sell some loot to a vendor until you do.
  • Go to the bank in central Darnassus, deposit your Fishing Pole, all uncooked fish and any other items you want to save for later.
  • Take out all Light Leather and Ruined Leather Scraps then go northeast to the Craftsmen's Terrace and up the Skinning/Leatherworking tree.
  • Click on your character's Skills tab, select Skinning and click the red "cancel" icon to drop that profession (temporarily).
  • Learn Leatherworking (10c) from Darianna and buy 8 Coarse Thread (80c) from Saenorion.
  • Convert all Ruined Leather Scraps into Light Leather, then craft yourself a Handstitched Leather set and 14 Light Armor Kits.

You should have enough leather to reach skill level 25+ to craft Handstitched Leather Pants (50c) and a Handstitched Leather Belt (75c). This starter set of armor should last you for the next 5-10 levels until you start picking up quest gear with better stats.

  • Use the Light Armor Kits to buff all of your chestpieces/pants/gloves/boots and any upgrades that you eventually get for those slots.

The reason you waited until now to craft that armor is so you wouldn't have to repair it all after making your death run through Wetlands. Unfortunately, the Leatherworking profession doesn't fit into the rest of this leveling plan beyond this point, so I recommend dropping it.

  • Click on your character's Skills tab, select Leatherworking and click the red "cancel" icon to drop that profession.
  • Learn Skinning (10c) again from Eladriel, then sell all skins from now on to help fund your adventures.

OPTIONAL: Learn Skinning again and put all skins in your bank as you're leveling until you've saved up and/or purchased 6-9 stacks of Light Leather and 6-18 stacks of Ruined Leather Scraps (more of one would require less of the other) which is what you would need to temporarily level up Leatherworking to skill level 70 to complete the Leatherworking quest Moonglow Vest for Cenarion Circle rep after level 15.


  • Head east out of Darnassus to Teldrassil.

TELDRASSIL

  • Go east on the road across Teldrassil, hugging the left side of the road to avoid exploration XP from Ban'ethil Hollow.
  • Get The Road to Darnassus from Moon Priestess Amara along the road, then continue east to Dolanaar (45xp).
  • Skin all critters around Dolanaar then go into the inn on the right and sell junk.
  • Get Recipe of the Kaldorei from Zarrin the Cook just outside the inn to the south.
  • Go across the road, get Denalan's Earth from Syral Bladeleaf and get A Troubling Breeze from Athridas Bearmantle.
  • Go up the ramp and purchase Small Brown Pouches and Balanced Throwing Daggers from Aldia.
  • Continue to the top of the tree and get Twisted Hatred and The Emerald Dreamcatcher from Tallonkai Swiftroot.
  • Go east, picking herbs and skinning critters (but avoiding all mobs) and get Zenn's Bidding from Zenn Foulhoof on the left side of the road.
  • Continue east and north into Shadowglen, past Porthannius and further north to the village of Aldrassil.

If everything works out properly, you will arrive in Shadowglen just before reaching level 7. You should have one initial gray quest, but all of the remaining quests will still be green, giving full reputation and experience.

  • Get The Woodland Protector from Melithar Staghelm in front of the building (even if it's gray).
  • Go east and get A Good Friend from Dirania Silvershine then go west across the path.
  • Get The Balance of Nature from Conservator Ilthalaine, then go further west to turn in The Woodland Protector (40xp) to Tarindrella.
  • Get The Woodland Protector Pt 2. then kill 7 Young Nightsabers and 4 level 1 Young Thistle Boars.
  • Turn in The Balance of Nature (170xp, Archery Training Gloves) to Conservator Ilthalaine and get The Balance of Nature Pt 2.
  • If the Night Elf Rogue quest Encrypted Sigil is offered to you, take it and turn it in (40xp) to Frahun Shadewhisper.

Level 7: Finish Shadowglen quests then start on Dolanaar quests

All Young Thistle Boars in the area are now gray, but since you can quickly two shot and skin them, treat them just like critters.

  • Go northeast into the main building, repair and sell junk to the vendor.
  • Go out of the building and turn right and to the north to get Webwood Venom from Gilshalan Windwalker.
  • Go north past the pools to kill/skin/loot 7 Mangy Nightsabers, 4 Thistle Boars and Webwood Spiders for Webwood Venom Sacs.
  • Go west towards Shadowthread Cave, killing/looting Webwood Spiders outside the cave then go into the narrow valley west of the cave entrance.
  • Turn in A Good Friend (270xp) to Iverron and get A Friend in Need, then return east to the entrance of Shadowthread Cave.
  • Go into the cave to kill/loot Webwood Spiders for 10 Webwood Venom Sacs then return south to Aldrassil.

Don't hearth back, because your hearthstone is set in Dun Morogh. You can die/rez to get back quicker, but it will cost about 1s to repair.

  • Turn in Webwood Venom (360xp, Thistlewood Dagger) to Gilshalan Windwalker and get Webwood Egg (save the 2nd dagger for level 10 Dual Wield).
  • Go south and turn in The Balance of Nature Pt 2 (250xp, Blackened Leather Belt) to Conservator Ilthalaine.
  • Go northeast to turn in A Friend in Need (100xp) to Dirania Silvershine and get Iverron's Antidote.
  • Go northwest into the main building and sell junk to the vendor.
  • Go west to kill/loot Grellkin (not Grells) for 8 Fell Moss and 7 Hyacinth Mushroom then go northeast to get 4 Moonpetal Lily around the pond.
  • Go northwest to Shadowthread Cave, kill spiders for 1 Webwood Ichor, then zoom in your camera and carefully stealth your way into the caves.
  • Go forward, turn right at the first intersection then turn left at the next and go up the hill and around the corner to the very top.
  • At the top, you'll see eggs behind the spiders. Go to the leftmost egg, kill the nearest spider, loot the egg then die/rez back in Aldrassil.
  • Turn in Webwood Egg (550xp, Woodland Tunic) to Gilshalan Windwalker and get Tenaron's Summons.
  • Go up the ramp to the top of the tree to turn in Tenaron's Summons (50xp) to Tenaron Stormgrip, get Crown of the Earth then hop down.
  • Go south to turn in The Woodland Protector Pt 2 (250xp, Canopy Leggings, 3 Healing Herb) to Tarindrella.
  • Go northeast into the main building, repair and sell junk to the vendor (the Healing Herbs are junk).
  • Go southeast to turn in Iverron's Antidote (350xp) to Dirania Silvershine and get Iverron's Antidote Pt 2. (starting a 5 minute timer).
  • Quickly go northwest to turn in Iverron's Antidote (450xp, armor) to Iverron before the timer runs out.
  • Go east and fill the Crystal Phial in the moonwell.
  • Return south, go back up the tree and turn in Crown of the Earth (350xp) to Tenaron Stormgrip and get Crown of the Earth Pt. 2.
  • Go back down the tree, sell junk and go south out of Shadowglen, killing/skinning mobs along the way.
  • Get Dolanaar Delivery from Porthannius, then go south across the road, killing/skinning/looting all owls/nightsabers/spiders.
  • Continue west to Dolanaar, then go into the tree on the right.
  • Go up the ramp to the second floor of the tree to buy Small Brown Pouches from Aldia if you need them.
  • Go back down and across the road into the inn.
  • Turn in Dolanaar Delivery (110xp, 5 Darnassian Bleu) to Innkeeper Keldamyr and sell all junk.
  • Go south through the inn to the moonwell just outside.
  • Turn in Crown of the Earth Pt. 2 (200xp) to Corithras Moonrage and get Crown of the Earth Pt. 3.

Level 8: Finish low level Teldrassil quests, then return to Dun Morogh

  • Visit the Rogue Trainer, Jannok Breezesong, to learn new skills (Evasion, Eviscerate Rank 2) for 4s and put Evasion on your action bars.

Evasion is your primary defense mechanism, allowing you to dodge attacks from multiple opponents, both melee and ranged. With a 5 minute cooldown, you'll want to save it for those times when you really need it. Also, when you do use it, make sure that your enemies stay in front of you to get the full effect.

You can learn Mining from Yarr Hammerstone in the building behind Tharek Blackstone, but note that you can only have one gathering "radar" on at a time, so this would require constantly switching back and forth from Herbalism to Mining on your "radar". To level up Blacksmithing at level 17 and complete those two quests, you'll need to gather and/or purchase approximately 100 Rough Stone, 160 Copper Ore, 8 Light Leather and 12 Linen Cloth.

  • Kill/loot/skin all Ice Claw Bears, Elder Crag Boars and Snow Leopards as you complete the next few steps.
  • Go east past Iceflow Lake then go up the path to Shimmer Ridge. At the top of the mountain, go right (southeast) towards the troll village.

Be careful. These trolls run for help when they get low on health, so you'll need to start slow and end fast. Pick an isolated troll, pick pocket, Sinister Strike and whittle them down with autoattacks while your energy recharges. Draw them away from adds, unleash two more Sinister Strikes and finish them off with an Eviscerate before they get a chance to run off.

  • Turn in Tundra MacGrann's Stolen Stash (900xp, armor) then drop down the north side of the mountain and go northwest to Brewnall Village.
  • Turn in The Perfect Stout (775xp, Goat Fur Cloak) to Rejold Barleybrew BUT DON'T get the quest Shimmer Stout (yet).

Level 10: Imp. Sinister Strike 1/2, Dun Morogh/Elwynn Forest quests

  • Hearth to Kharanos.
  • Turn in Supplies to Tannok (110xp, 5 Tough Jerky) to Tannok Frosthammer.
  • Sell junk, save all meat, buy one Thunder Ale from Inkeeper Belm then go through the doorway to the left into the basement of the Inn.
  • Click the Guarded Thunder Ale Barrel, click Jarven Thunderbrew, then wait for the Unguarded Thunder Ale Barrel to appear.
  • Click on the Unguarded Thunder Ale Barrel to turn in Distracting Jarven (140xp), get Return to Marleth then go back upstairs.
  • Visit the Rogue Trainer, Hogral Bakkan, to train skills (Dual Wielding, Sprint, Slice and Dice, Sap) for 12s.

Sprint is a very helpful ability, one that can be used offensively to quickly close in on enemies, defensively to bolt away from dangerous situations or you can just use it to cover long distances every 5 minutes and speed along your overall leveling progression. Slice and Dice is a finishing move mostly used for raiding, but can also be helpful in longer battles while leveling. Sap is your long-duration creature control (CC) ability, allowing you to separate individuals from groups and control the battlefield. After using Sap, be ready to fight any other mob that's nearby, as you'll be immediately pulled out of stealth when you use it.

  • Put the skills on your action bars and equip a spare dagger in your offhand.
  • SKIP Road to Salvation from Hogral Bakkan since the Human version of this quest is preferred.
  • Get Rejold's New Brew (the breadcrumb quest which precedes Shimmer Stout) from Tharek Blackstone across from the inn (if it's available).

  • Go back east to Brewnall Village, killing/skinning Ice Claw Bears, Elder Crag Boars and Snow Leopards along the way.

  • Turn in Rejold's New Brew (100xp, Mug of Shimmer Stout) to Rejold Barleybrew and now get the quest Shimmer Stout (get it even if you couldn't get the breadcrumb quest).
  • Continue west to Frostmane Hold, killing/skinning Ice Claw Bears, Elder Crag Boars and Snow Leopards along the way.
  • Zoom in your camera and carefully stealth your way through the cave, killing lone Frostmane Headhunters and completing the exploration quest.

Sap will come in very handy here, allowing you to incapacitate one mob while you focus on another.

  • Go north and kill/loot Leper Gnomes until you've gathered 8 Restabilization Cogs and 8 Gyromechanic Gears.
  • Turn in A Favor for Evershine (525xp) to Rejold Barleybrew and get Return to Bellowfiz.

  • Take a gryphon flight to Stormwind City.

STORMWIND CITY

  • Set your hearthstone in the Stormwind City Inn.
  • Visit Woo Ping in The Trade District to train in One-Handed Swords (10s). If you couldn't get a Feral Blade, then buy a Cutlass (20s23c) from Gunther or Marda.

  • Return east, while killing kobolds, to Billy Maclure at The Maclure Vineyards to turn in Back to Billy (140xp) and get Goldtooth.
  • Go west to Fargodeep Mine and make your way through the mine killing/looting kobolds as you complete all quests.

By the time you reach Goldtooth, you should have most or all of the 8 Large Candles and 10 Gold Dust that you need.

  • Use Evasion, kill/loot Goldtooth, then finish off any adds. Finish killing kobolds for 8 Large Candles and 10 Gold Dust.
  • Exit the mine and go west to turn in Goldtooth (900xp, Lion-stamped Gloves) to "Auntie" Bernice Stonefield.
  • Pick herbs on your way back to Goldshire.
  • Turn in Gold Dust Exchange (650xp, 1s75c, Bag of Marbles) to Remy "Two Times".

You'll want to have 6+ Earthroot, 11+ Peacebloom, and 21+ Silverleaf by the time you return to Teldrassil. You can find Earthroot along the hills just to the north of Crystal Lake. Once you're done, make your way back southwest to Goldshire.

STORMWIND CITY

  • Take a gryphon flight to Ironforge.

IRONFORGE

  • Set your hearthstone in the Ironforge Inn.
  • Take a gryphon flight to Menethil Harbor.

WETLANDS

  • Two different vendors in Menethil Harbor sell Healing Potions (3s), Samor Festivus on the top floor of the inn and Dewin Shimmerdawn in the house next to the northern dock.
  • If you still need it, buy a Strong Fishing Pole (8s10c) from Stuart Fleming on the dock.
  • Go around Menethil Harbor looking for pools of Floating Wreckage.
  • When you're done fishing for loot, go out to the right (northern) dock to Darkshore. While waiting for the ship, get in some more fishing.

DARKSHORE

  • Check for pools of Floating Wreckage around the dock then go into Auberdine to get the FP and fly to Rut'Theran Village.

RUT'THERAN VILLAGE

  • Take the glowing teleporter to Darnassus.

DARNASSUS

  • Cook and/or drop off all extra fish at the bank.
  • Sell junk and clear out your bags as much as possible. Try to sell enough loot to get to at least 15s-40s.

If you have 40+ silver, upgrade your ranged weapon to bows, otherwise save your silver for skills.

  • Go east to the Warrior's Terrace and learn the Bows skill for 10s from Ilyenia Moonfire.
  • Buy a Laminated Recurve Bow (17s52c) and Sharp Arrows (50c) from Ariyell Skyshadow nearby.

The more powerful ranged weapon will really help with taking down runners before they aggro more mobs.

  • Go east out of Darnassus to Teldrassil.

TELDRASSIL

  • Turn in The Glowing Fruit (850xp, 3s50c) to Denalan and kill the 3 Boglings that appear for their Bogling Roots.

Level 12: Imp. Gouge 1/3, choose professions, level 7-9 Teldrassil quests

  • Return northwest to Dolanaar, picking herbs along the way.
  • Visit the Rogue Trainer, Jannok Breezesong, to get new skills (Kick/Parry) for 16s and put Kick on your action bar.

Use Kick on spellcasters when they're casting powerful spells with long casting times, and use it at the last possible second for maximum effect. Parry, on the other hand, is a passive ability that increases your ability to avoid melee attacks from the front, and really shines when you get Riposte. If you have any level 12 Healing Potions, put them on your action bar. Once you have 6+ Earthroot, 11+ Peacebloom and 21+ Silverleaf, it's time to switch professions again (at least temporarily) to complete another reputation quest.

  • Click on your character's Skills tab, select Skinning (or Mining if you switched to that) and click the red "cancel" icon to drop that profession.
  • Go to the small house by the cooks in Dolanaar and learn Alchemy from Cyndra Kindwhisper.
  • Go north across the road and up to the second floor of the tree to buy 40 Empty Vials (1s52c) from Narret Shadowgrove.
  • Craft 6 Elixir of Lion's Strength, 2 Elixir of Minor Defense and 11 Minor Healing Potions to reach skill level 20 for a Darnassus rep quest.
  • Go back outside the tree and turn in Elixirs for the Bladeleafs (700xp, 6 Earthroot, 6 Mageroyal, 2s25c) to Syral Bladeleaf.
  • Return to Cyndra Kindwhisper to learn Weak Troll's Blood Potion, then keep a stack of each herb and Empty Vials to make potions as needed.

At this point, you have an important decision to make - - What do you want your leveling professions to be? Assuming as a Rogue that you want to keep Herbalism for Swiftthistle (Thistle Tea) and Fadeleaf (Blind), what about your 2nd profession? Would you rather have the increased short term income from Herbalism/Skinning, allowing you to sell extra herbs and skins as you level? Or would you rather be self sufficient long term with Herbalism/Alchemy, able to make your own potions and elixirs for leveling and raiding?

The current benefits of Alchemy (50 Armor, 4 Strength, Regen 2 Health/5 sec, and 70-91 instant heals) definitely make it worth consideration. Those potions and elixirs can be very helpful for buffing you up and keeping you alive in tough situations. Eventually, you can craft stronger potions and elixirs including Agility, Water Breathing, resistance/protection potions and raiding flasks. On the downside, you'll no longer get the increased income from selling skins and herbs and would need to seek out and buy Alchemy recipes. Picking Alchemy also means dedicating bag space for herbs/vials/potions, which is a significant hassle to deal with while leveling.

I recommend dropping Alchemy for Skinning as you level, allowing you to sell all skins and herbs (other than Swiftthistle and Fadeleaf). If you decide on Skinning, make as many potions as you need, then on your next trip back to Darnassus, drop Alchemy and learn Skinning again. If you decide to keep Alchemy, sell your Skinning Knife, then mail and/or bank any extra herbs (and all Alchemy-related fish) to level up.

  • Go east and around to the northern side of Starbreeze Village to pick pocket/kill Gnarlpine Mystics and kill Ferocitas the Dream Eater.

These Furbolgs are going to be tougher, so buff up, be careful and pull individual mobs with your ranged weapon. Gnarlpine Mystics will run and bring back help, so after your initial attack, let your energy refill as your autoattacks whittle them down. When their health starts to get low, unleash Sinister Strike/Eviscerate to finish them off before they run away and aggro more Furbolgs. When you've killed 6 of 7 Gnarlpine Mystics, it's time to fight Ferocitas who is guarded by the final 7th Gnarlpine Mystic you'll need.

  • Stealth up, use Evasion, quickly kill the Gnarlpine Mystic, then kill Ferocitas, using a Healing Potion/Severed Voodoo Claw if needed.
  • Loot the Gnarlpine Necklace from Ferocitas and open it to get Tallonkai's Jewel.
  • Follow the mountains to the northwest, picking herbs, past Dolanaar into a narrow valley that leads to a cave to the north called Fel Rock.
  • Zoom in your camera and carefully stealth through the cave past all enemies until you find Lord Melenas.
  • When you're ready, use Evasion and a Healing Potion/Severed Voodoo Claw if needed to kill Lord Melenas and loot his head.
  • Stealth back out of the cave, then return to Dolanaar.
  • Turn in Twisted Hatred (625xp, Feral Bracers) and Ferocitas the Dream Eater (875xp, 4s50c) to Tallonkai Swiftroot at the top of the tree.
  • Make your way west while picking herbs to Darnassus. Stop off at the Leatherworking/Skinning house if you need to learn Skinning again.

DARNASSUS

  • Go northwest to the Cenarion Enclave and turn in Rellian Greenspyre (320xp) to Rellian Greenspyre and get Tumors.
  • Visit the various profession trainers to level up any of your professions.
  • If you were unable to upgrade to bows earlier, go to the Warrior's Terrace and do so now.
  • If you have plenty of leftover silver, buy some Brown Leather Satchels for 25s each from Ellandrieth in the Tradesmen's Terrace.
  • Sell junk and clear out your bags as much as possible.
  • Visit the bank and drop off anything you want to save.
  • Go east out of Darnassus back to Teldrassil.

TELDRASSIL

  • Go northeast to Wellspring Lake.
  • Make your way around Wellspring Lake and north along Wellspring River, killing/looting all level 8/9 Timberling Tramplers.

As you head north up the river, keep an eye out for the rare Blackmoss the Fetid who drops the Moss-twined Heart, a Darnassus rep quest item. Blackmoss the Fetid has a 2 hour respawn and appears between the river and the crescent shaped rise northeast of the river on your map. If you want to, camp by Blackmoss' spawn point and work on leveling your fishing in the river while waiting for him to appear.

  • Once Blackmoss the Fetid appears, kill him and loot the Moss-twined Heart. Don't accept the quest The Moss-twined Heart until later.
  • When you're done waiting, go west to the Oracle Glade (you can always check back for Blackmoss the Fetid later if you don't want to wait).
  • Get The Enchanted Glade from Sentinel Arynia Cloudsbreak and then fill the Amethyst Phial in the moonwell.
  • Go to the northwest and get The Shimmering Frond from the glowing Strange Fronded Plant.
  • Die to a mob west of the road and rez back in Darnassus.

DARNASSUS

  • If it's available, get Nessa Shadowsong from Mydrannul in eastern Darnassus.
  • Go northwest to the Cenarion Enclave and turn in Tumors (975xp, 6s, Pruning Knife) to Rellian Greenspyre and get Return to Denalan.
  • Sell junk and repair, then go east out of Darnassus back to Teldrassil.

TELDRASSIL

  • Go east along the road past the Leatherworking/Skinning house, then at the bridge, drop down southeast into the valley of Ban'ethil Hollow.
  • Kill 6 Gnarlpine Ambushers then go southwest past more Furbolgs into the Ban'ethil Barrow Den.

These caves are often referred to as the suicide caves, but with your higher level, skills, consumables and gear, you can easily solo this area now. Trying to stealth through these caves at level 9/10 with daggers is a very frustrating experience compared to level 12/13 with a sword. I would normally recommend trying to group up for this kind of situation, however the Relics of Wakening can only be picked up by one person at a time, so that would involve a lot of waiting around for them to respawn.

  • Buff up and stealth your way south and down into the den until you reach two bridges.
  • Go across each bridge and loot the chests for the Rune of Nesting and Black Feather Quill.
  • Go down a level and through the tunnel going southwest deeper into the caves until you reach another bridge. Go across and kill any Furbolgs.
  • Get The Sleeping Druid from Oben Rageclaw, then stealth through the tunnels killing/looting all Gnarlpine Shaman for the Shaman Voodoo Charm while you complete the next step.
  • From Oben Rageclaw, go down a level southeast through a tunnel where you'll reach Greenpaw and his guards, who are guarding another chest.
  • Use Sap and Evasion to defeat them, then loot that chest for the Sapphire of Sky.
  • Continue killing/looting all Gnarlpine Shaman for the Shaman Voodoo Charm then make your way back to Oben Rageclaw.
  • Turn in The Sleeping Druid (700xp) to Oben Rageclaw and get Druid of the Claw.
  • From Oben Rageclaw, go down a level then north through the lower tunnel until you reach a donut-shaped room at the northern end of the den.
  • Rageclaw patrols this circular area, so carefully pull single Furbolgs to clear out a safe area to fight him alone.
  • Use Evasion and a Healing Potion/Severed Voodoo Claw if needed to kill Rageclaw. DO NOT FORGET to use the Voodoo Charm on his dead body.
  • From the south side of that circular room, go up the ramp onto a platform, across the eastern bridge and up a narrow tunnel past furbolgs.
  • At the end of the narrow tunnel going up, you'll reach the final chest on a balcony, where you'll loot the Raven Claw Talisman.
  • Drop down from that balcony and return south all the way back through the lower tunnel and up the ramp on your left to Oben Rageclaw.
  • Turn in Druid of the Claw (1,100xp, Brushwood Blade) to Oben Rageclaw and offhand your new sword (which straps across your back!)

Level 13: Imp. Gouge 2/3, Teldrassil/Dun Morogh/Elwynn Forest/Westfall

  • From Oben Rageclaw, go back across the bridge and straight through the southeast tunnel and up ramps out of the caves, up to the surface.
  • Leave Ban'ethil Barrow Den and go northeast back to the road.
  • Take the main road east to turn in The Road to Darnassus (700xp) to Moon Priestess Amara then go further east to Dolanaar.
  • Turn in The Relics of Wakening (775xp, weapon) to Athridas Bearmantle and get Ursal the Mauler.
  • Turn in Crown of the Earth Pt. 5 (1,100xp) to Corithras Moonrage and get Crown of the Earth Pt. 6.
  • Go southeast to Denalan at Lake Al'Ameth.
  • DON'T turn in The Moss-twined Heart yet. You'll be saving that quest for later.
  • Turn in The Shimmering Frond (850xp, 3s50c) and click on the Sprouted Frond in the planter to complete The Sprouted Fronds (85xp).
  • Turn in Return to Denalan (80xp) and get Oakenscowl.
  • Go west to the small cave at southwest Lake Al'Ameth then pull single timberlings until Oakenscowl is mostly alone.
  • Buff up and kill/loot Oakenscowl, using Evasion, a Severed Voodoo Claw, a Bogling Root, and a Healing Potion if necessary.
  • Return east to turn in Oakenscowl (975xp, 3s, armor) to Denalan.
  • Hearth to Ironforge.

IRONFORGE

  • Turn in The Reports (420xp, 1s75c) to Senator Barin Redstone in the southwestern section of the Great Forge.
  • Go southwest to Timberline Arms on the south side of Military Ward to train in One-handed maces (10s) from Buliwyf Stonehand.
  • Visit the various profession trainers to level up any of your professions.

STORMWIND CITY

  • Go southeast to the Stormwind Barracks to turn in Seek out SI: 7 (200xp) to Master Mathias Shaw and get Snatch and Grab (neither quest gives rep, so they can be skipped if you want to maximize rep gain from rep quests only).
  • Visit the Rogue Trainer to get skills (Sinister Strike Rank 3/Garrote) for 22s and put Garrote on your Stealth bar.

Garrote is an underestimated skill for leveling, one that can be used very effectively to help kill off runners before they bring back adds. Rather than using your ranged weapon to pull single mobs, if you can, safely stealth up to a mob near a group (but not too near), pick pocket, Garrote, then fight them while walking backwards away from the group. By the time the mob decides to run for help, Garrote will help ensure that they die before they get back in time to pull in any adds. It's also useful at the start of long battles against tougher Elite/Rare mobs and any enemies with lots of armor, since the damage bypasses armor. Unfortunately, Garrote doesn't work on all mobs.

If you need them, Adair Gilroy in the northeast Mage Quarter outside the Stockades sells scrolls that can help in your adventures. Note: Scroll of Protection and Scroll of Strength cannot be combined with Elixir of Minor Defense and Elixir of Lion's Strength. Charys Yserian in the western Mage Quarter also sells Healing Potions (3s).

  • Head southeast over the river to Eastvale Logging Camp while picking herbs and killing/skinning all Young Forest Bears and Prowlers.

  • Collect bundles of wood around trees to the northeast between Eastvale Camp and the Murloc camp while killing Prowlers/Young Forest Bears.

In that camp, you'll find Rolf's corpse next to a group of Murlocs. After clearing out the wolves and bears, start pulling single Murlocs. If you pull a 2nd Murloc, use your Explosive Rockets and pop Evasion and back up a little so they both face your dodges from the front. If you pull any more Murlocs, gouge and kite the first one while running south until the other adds break off, then kill the one you gouged.

  • Repeat this process until you turn in Discover Rolf's Fate (400xp) at Rolf's corpse, and get Report to Thomas.

  • Repeat the two prior steps until you get 6 Red Linen Bandanas and hopefully the Westfall Deed (the named Defias in the house have a higher drop rate).

If you can't get the Westfall Deed, then set that quest aside for later, and stick to killing just gray level 8 Defias mobs until level 15. If you keep killing level 9/10 mobs for it now then you'll end up having other quests turn gray later on at the expense of completing that one quest.

Riposte is an excellent offensive and defensive ability, doing nice damage for minimal energy while disarming enemies in the process.

  • Make a Riposte macro to replace your Sinister Strike attack button.

/run if GetUnitName("target")==nil then TargetNearestEnemy() end
/run if not IsCurrentAction(1) then UseAction(1) end
/Cast Riposte
/Cast Sinister Strike
/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

For that macro, replace Action(1) with your standard autoattack keybinding (or put your autoattack function in slot 1).

  • Use Shift+Click to open practice lockboxes (but not Lucius's Lockbox yet) until you get to Pick Lock skill 99. Leveling up your Pick Lock skill is just as boring, but just as useful, as leveling up Fishing.
  • Open Lucius's Lockbox for your 100th Pick Lock point, get the Token of Thievery then go southwest and stealth into the lake.

  • If you still need it, check the Engineering Supplies vendor, Billibub Cogspinner in northernmost Dwarven District for 1 Bronze Tube (8s).

  • /lay down to start the next part then get up and make poisons while you're waiting for him and put them on your action bar.

Don't sell any weightstones/sharpening stones you might have, as you'll want to save those for enemies that are immune to poisons.

  • Get The Touch of Zanzil Pt. 2 (160xp) and turn that in.
  • Get The Touch of Zanzil Pt. 3 then gather the following throughout Stormwind City:
  • Leaded Vial: Sold by Jasper Fel, the Shady Dealer, in the Stormwind Barracks.

  • Go southwest to Dagger Hills, apply Instant Poison, and kill 15 Defias Highwaymen, 5 Defias Pathstalkers and 5 Defias Knuckledusters.
  • Go southwest to Westfall Lighthouse (unless you're only interested in reputation as those quests give no rep whatsoever and require a lot of running around).

Leveling Herbalism from 85-100 is slow, so take advantage of Stranglekelp along the coast, watching out for any nearby Murlocs.

  • Pick up and turn in Keeper of the Flame (1,150xp, 3 Minor Healing Potion, Scroll of Stamina) to Captain Grayson.

Level 21: Imp. Sprint 1/2, Finish Westfall, Deadmines prep, new weapon

Improved Sprint is a quality of life ability that will save you in many circumstances, both PVE and PVP.

  • Get The Coast Isn't Clear and The Coastal Menace from Captain Grayson and pick Stranglekelp in the area, while watching for Old Murk-Eye.

Be very careful fighting the higher level Murlocs around Westfall Lighthouse, because they will root you and run to pull more. Always have your Sprint and Evasion ready and only fight lone Murlocs, slowly pulling them away from the group as you fight.

  • Kill all of the Murloc Tidehunters and Murloc Oracles that you need here, then go east to Kriggon Talsone on the pier to sell junk. Save 8 Murloc Fins for another quest.
  • Clear out your bags as much as possible, because you will fill them very quickly over the next few steps.
  • When you run into Old Murk-Eye, use stealth, Garrote, Slice and Dice, Evasion, and a Healing Potion to solo him.
  • Continue north along the coast, while picking Stranglekelp, to find the Murloc Warriors and Murloc Coastrunners.
  • If you get Captain Sander's Treasure Map off a Murloc, then follow the treasure map instructions below.
  • Go west of the words "Gold Coast" on the map to turn in Captain Sander's Hidden Treasure (575xp) at the Captains Footlocker.
  • Kill all the Murloc Warriors you need while you're here.
  • Keep an eye out for the Defias Messenger during these next two steps. Pick pocket and kill him and loot A Mysterious Message.
  • Head due east to the road to turn in Captain Sander's Hidden Treasure (Part 2) (575xp) at the Broken Barrel near the chimney.
  • Go north past Jangolode Mine to turn in Captain Sander's Hidden Treasure (Part 3) (575xp) at the Old Jug next to the windmill.
  • Kill all the Murloc Coastrunners you need while you're here.
  • Go due west to the far islands to turn in Captain Sander's Hidden Treasure (Part 4) (1,150xp, stuff) at the Locked Chest.
  • Throw away all pieces of the treasure map to free up room in your bags. Don't sell the Silver Bar as you'll need it later.
  • Go back east to the coast and kill the last of the Murloc Warriors/Murloc Coastrunners.
  • If you still need the Defias Messenger, continue east to the road and follow it south to Moonbrook, then southwest back to the Lighthouse.
  • However, if you've already killed the Defias Messenger, follow the coast back to the south instead, picking Strangekelp along the way.
  • Turn in The Coast Isn't Clear (1,450xp, 11s) and The Coastal Menace (1,550xp) to Captain Grayson.
  • Go east to sell junk to Kriggon Talsone.

  • Turn in The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 5 (1,350xp) and the People's Militia Pt. 3 (1,600xp, weapon) to Gryan Stoutmantle.

The Defias Traitor should be waiting at the foot of the tower. If not, someone else is on the escort quest, so wait for him to return. Use that time to make bandages, repair, sell junk, etc. You can do the Defias Traitor quest solo, but it may be tough, so try to group up.

  • Once you and/or your group are ready, and all on the same step of the quest chain, get The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 6 from The Defias Traitor.
  • Escort The Defias Traitor to the entrance of The Deadmines in Moonbrook to complete the quest.
  • Turn in The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 6 (1,700xp) to Gryan Stoutmantle and get The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 7.
  • Go to the top of the Sentinel Hill tower and get the Red Silk Bandanas quest from Scout Riell (this quest is easy to miss!)
  • If you're still waiting for a Deadmines group to form, go southwest to The Deadmines to work on Red Silk Bandanas solo.
  • Go in the building and down to the mine and carefully kill single Defias mobs near the entrance for 10 Red Silk Bandanas.

When faced with elites, use Evasion and Thistle Tea to defeat them. Don't let runners get away, otherwise you'll need to sprint all the way back outside to escape.

  • Return northeast to Sentinel Hill.
  • Turn in Red Silk Bandanas (1,250xp, Solid Shortblade) to Scout Riell at the top of the Sentinel Hill tower for a main hand upgrade (unless you already have a Heavy Bronze Mace).

THE DEADMINES

Your objective in The Deadmines will be to complete all quests and hopefully get one or both weapons upgraded, without getting too much experience in the process. A full quest run through The Deadmines at this level should get you about halfway through your experience bar. If you want even less experience from mobs, you can wait as late as level 23 and still get full experience and reputation credit from your Deadmines quests.

  • Oh Brother. . . and Collecting Memories are completed just outside the instance down a tunnel on the left side. Kill/loot Foreman Thistlenettle and his undead miners.
  • Underground Assault is completed with a quest item drop from Sneed's Shredder.
  • The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 7 requires that you get the Head of VanCleef.
  • Also, pick up An Unsent Letter from VanCleef's body to start the next questline that leads to The Stockade.
  • Your ultimate objective here is to get Cruel Barb from VanCleef. You may want to run the instance more than once for that excellent weapon, since it will last you 10-15 levels.

If you can't get Cruel Barb, Cookie's Tenderizer is still a decent upgrade (unless you already have a Heavy Bronze Mace) and Thief's Blade (Mr. Smite) is ideal for your offhand.

  • Leave the instance and return to Westfall.

WESTFALL

  • Return northeast to Sentinel Hill (you can die/rez to get back if you have no more Westfall quests other than The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 7).
  • Turn in The Defias Brotherhood Pt. 7 (2,600xp, Tunic of Westfall) to Gryan Stoutmantle at Sentinel Hill, equip your chestpiece and apply a Medium Armor Kit.
  • If you still need to complete any other Westfall quests, do so now.

  • Get Deviate Hides from Nalpak in the cave above the instance entrance.
  • Get Deviate Eradication from Ebru in the cave above the instance entrance.

After completing quests and killing all Serpent Lords, speak to the Disciple of Naralex at the instance entrance, escort him to the boss room, kill Mutanus The Devourer and loot the Glowing Shard. Save that quest for level 30.

  • Turn in Deviate Hides to Nalpak in the cave above the instance entrance then return to Ratchet.
  • Turn in Trouble at the Docks to Crane Operator Bigglefuzz by the gryphon master.
  • Turn in Smart Drinks to Mebok Mizzyrix standing west of the bank and get Deepmoss Spider Eggs but SKIP Blueleaf Tubers.

  • Visit the Rogue Trainer to learn new skills (Garrote Rank 2, Sinister Strike Rank 4, Distract, Vanish) for 1g44s.
  • Buy 40 Flash Powder from Jasper Fel, the Shady Dealer, in the Stormwind Barracks.

Distract is useful for forcing mobs to face away from you, allowing you to sneak by, pick their pockets and/or or set them up for a surprise attack. Vanish is the ultimate emergency button for Rogues, providing you with an escape from a variety of nasty situations. Not only that, it can also be used offensively to initiate another stealth opener. When using Vanish, try to make sure that you don't have any Damage over Time (DoT) effects on you that might break the effect. In addition to that, you also want to be certain that you don't accidentally autoattack yourself back out of stealth. Most importantly, make sure you have a sufficient supply of Flash Powder on hand, otherwise you'll try to Vanish and end up dead.

  • See if you can get an Elixir of Water Breathing off the AH or from an Alchemist.
  • Take a gryphon flight to Duskwood.

DUSKWOOD

  • Turn in Assessing the Threat (950xp, 7s) to Deputy Feldon by the gryphon.
  • Turn in Underbelly Scales (1,700xp, Black Whelp Gloves) to Verner Osgood but SKIP A Baying of Gnolls.

  • Fill the Empty Cleansing Bowl in the Moonwell nearby.
  • If you weren't able to get an Elixir of Water Breathing, see if there are any Warlocks around who can cast Unending Breath on you.
  • Go north along the beach until you reach the ships.

If you don't have Water Breathing or Unending Breath, then lure Murlocs out of the ship and kill them up at the surface to avoid drowning. The lockboxes are at the very bottom of each ship, so you don't want to be caught in battle, struggling for air, trying to loot those boxes.

  • If you do have Water Breathing, then either stealth swim or fight gray Murlocs on your way down into the ships to loot the Silver Dawning's Lockbox and Mist Veil's Lockbox.
  • Continue north along the beach, killing/looting all Reef Crawlers (and Encrusted Tide Crawlers for the Bottom of Gelkak's Key) until you have 6 Fine Crab Chunks, then continue northeast up to the bridge.

  • Return northeast to the river, summon Xabraxxis at the bonfire and kill/loot him for the Talisman of Corruption (unless you already got it from a bag).
  • Go across the river to the north and up the path to the Naga cave.
  • Go into the Naga cave and carefully stealth your way through, collecting 5 Scaber Stalks and 1 Death Cap.

This cave is much like Ban'ethil Barrow Den - - a miserable solo experience at lower levels, but a breeze at max quest level. Getting the Death Cap will be your only challenge now. Sap the Stormscale Siren, pop Evasion, kill the Twlight melee guards, then finish off the Stormscale Siren. If you get a quest item, Book: The Powers Below, from a Twilight Disciple or Twilight Thug, hold onto it until level 25. If it doesn't drop, you'll have more chances to get it later.

  • Die/rez back near Bashal'Aran, then return southwest to Auberdine, repair and sell junk.
  • Turn in Deep Ocean, Vast Sea (1,000xp, 18s, armor) to Gorbold Steelhand outside the northern building.

Level 23: Endurance 1/2, Level 18/19 Darkshore/Ashenvale quests

Endurance, like Improved Sprint, will help you in both PVE and PVP by reducing the cooldown on two of your key abilities, Sprint and Evasion.

  • Go back to the southwest to The Master's Glaive and find Therylune just south of the table on the other side of the wall.
  • Get Therylune's Escape from Therylune then escort her around to the east and up the path to the road.
  • Go south around the rim of The Master's Glaive then west to the shore to work on the final murloc and beached animal quests.

  • Check in General chat for anyone wanting to kill Murkdeep as you go north up the coast to the Murloc camp.
