Alliance Rogue Quest Completionist Guide

This Classic questing guide is intended for Alliance players 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
  • Reduce 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. Unfortunately, reaching Exalted with Alliance factions by level 40 is not possible, but this guide will get you as close as you can get before you have to resort to repeatable turn-in quests to finish up.

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 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 (up through level 30).

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.

These precautions can be relaxed after level 30, when you'll start to get less Alliance faction rep quests than you need to level and will probably want to supplement with optional non-Alliance quests, dungeons and/or grinding to stay above level.


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, 55SW) 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, 55SW).
  • Get the quest Wolves Across the Border from Eagan Peltskinner.

Before you get started, create yourself a simple Attack macro:

/startattack
/cast Sinister Strike

With that macro, you'll immediately start attacking your enemy, even if you don't have enough energy for Sinister Strike.

  • 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.

OPTIONAL: If Northshire is way too crowded to begin questing, then consider Exploration Leveling as an alternative to get to level 5, complete with an upgraded weapon, two gathering professions, a few early flight paths and a little bit of spending money. Another leveling strategy is the Gladius Grind, where you just grind wolves or similar beasts from levels 1-6 until you have 15s36c to buy a Gladius and train in swords.

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 (170xp, Wolfskin Bracers, 110SW) to Eagan Peltskinner, equip the bracers and sell junk (all gray items are junk) to the vendors.
  • Turn in Kobold Camp Cleanup (170xp, 25c, 110SW) 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 (40xp, 55SW) 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, 40c, 110SW) to Marshal McBride inside Northshire Abbey and get Skirmish at Echo Ridge.
  • Go northwest to the entrance of the mine and kill 12 Kobold Laborers.

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).

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

  • Return southeast to Northshire Abbey.
  • Turn in Skirmish at Echo Ridge (450xp, Outfitter Belt, 110SW) to Marshal McBride inside Northshire Abbey and get Report to Goldshire.
  • 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, armor, 55SW) to Marshal Dughan but SKIP Fargodeep Mine.
  • Go inside the inn and turn in Rest and Relaxation (100xp, 5 Small Pumpkin, 27SW) 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 several levels until you can afford to learn One Handed Swords and One Handed Maces (BETA: Those skills costs 10 silver each and can actually be learned as early as level 1). If you find a better Sword or Mace that does more damage, hold onto it so you won't have to buy one at a vendor when you eventually train that respective skill.
  • 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).

Even better, turn on autoloot and make a simple Pick Pocket + Attack macro:

/cast Pick Pocket
/cast Sinister Strike

  • 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.

If you're faced with a group of enemies, throw a knife from maximum range to pull one from the group, run away, throw another knife to kite that same mob and repeat until any adds stop chasing, then kill that mob.

  • 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, 110SW) to Deputy Willem, get Bounty on Garrick Padfoot and Milly Osworth.
  • Sell junk but try to hold onto leather scraps, leather and herbs from now on unless you absolutely need to sell them.
  • Go around the east side of the building to turn in Milly Osworth (35xp, 11SW) and get Milly's Harvest.
  • 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, 55SW) to Milly Osworth on the east side of Northshire Abbey and get Grape Manifest.
  • Turn in Bounty on Garrick Padfoot (340xp, Layered Tunic, 83SW) 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, 110SW).
  • Go south to Goldshire as you kill/skin critters, pick herbs, pick pocket Defias Cutpurses and avoid battles.
  • Do a quick circle around Goldshire, picking herbs, pick pocketing Defias Cutpurses 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. Maske sure autoloot is on, and when the bobber splashes, use 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, pick pocketing Defias Cutpurses 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)
  • 2-4 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: 12-15 slots of your 16 slot bag

  • Return to the dock to continue fishing until level 50, then make another circle around Goldshire, picking herbs, pick pocketing Defias Cutpurses 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 60 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 (if you can - - see below) from Lee Brown and fish up the rest of the 50 Brilliant Smallfish.

BETA: Level 10 is required for Journeyman Fishing and crafting professions but not for Journeyman Cooking or Journeyman Herbalism.

  • Make another circle around Goldshire, picking herbs, pick pocketing Defias Cutpurses and skinning critters, then cook and sell all Brilliant Smallfish to get to 50 Cooking.
  • Go outside the inn, pick herbs, pick pocket Defias Cutpurses 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, pick pocketing Defias Cutpurses 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, 55SW, 13Sp). (BETA: This is you first quest with (Sp)illover rep.)
  • Get Package for Thurman then go south to the Gallina Winery to turn in Wine Shop Advert (130xp, Bottle of Pinot Noir, 82SW, 21Sp) 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, 83SW, 20Sp).
  • 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).
  • Go 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, 110IF/GE) 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. (BETA: Not offered to Humans)
  • 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 (170xp, Bear Shawl, 110IF/GE) 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 (unless you've already looted decent 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.
  • Stop by the trogg camp on your left to quickly stealth through and pick all of their pockets for free loot (especially Minor Healing Potions) then continue west.
  • Turn in Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery (190xp, 83IF/GE) to Talin Keeneye and get Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery Pt. 2 and The Boar Hunter.
  • Kill Small Crag Boars (BETA: These boars cannot be skinned) around the area then turn in The Boar Hunter (250xp, Dwarven Leather Pants, 110IF/GE) to Talin Keeneye and equip your pants.
  • Continue south along the road and turn in Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery Pt 2. (270xp, 7c, 82IF/GE) 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, Healing Herb, 110IF/GE) to Grelin Whitebeard and get 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. Throw away the Healing Herbs if your bag is full.
  • Return northeast to Anvilmar, briefly stopping by the trogg camp to pick pockets.
  • Turn in Refugee's Quandary (250xp, 50c, 110IF/GE) to Felix Whindlebolt.
  • Turn in Scalding Mornbrew Delivery (230xp, 55IF/GE) to Durnan Furcutter but SKIP 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 and kill/skin rams and sheep as you go south or die and rez to the south outside Thelsamar (85xp).
  • Grab the Thelsamar FP then go back north, picking herbs and killing/skinning rams and sheep close to the road, past Algaz Station and into the tunnel.
  • Go north through the Dun Algaz (85xp) tunnels until you reach the Dragonmaw Orcs. Run past them as far as you can until you die. Despite technically dying in the Wetlands, you'll have to run your ghost from Thelsamar back to your body then safely rez past the guards, continue through the tunnels then carefully drop down into Wetlands. Die to an enemy outside the lower tunnel exit.

WETLANDS

  • Rez at the Wetlands 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

  • 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. If you can't sell your damaged low level gear that's being replaced, don't try to repair and sell, just throw it away.

  • 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.


  • Put anything you don't need right now in the bank.
  • 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, 55D) to Tarindrella.
  • Get The Woodland Protector Pt 2. then kill 7 Young Nightsabers and 4 level 1 Young Thistle Boars. (BETA: These boars cannot be skinned)
  • Turn in The Balance of Nature (170xp, Archery Training Gloves, 110D) 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. (BETA: Not offered to Humans)

Level 7: Finish Shadowglen quests then start on Dolanaar quests

  • 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/loot 7 Mangy Nightsabers, 4 Thistle Boars (BETA: These cannot be skinned) 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, 83D) 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, 110D) 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, 50c, 110D) to Conservator Ilthalaine.

  • 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.

  • Pick herbs and kill/skin/loot owls/nightsabers/spiders as you go east to the moonwell outside Starbreeze Village to fill the Jade Phial.
  • Stealth your way east into the village to the first building on the right, and go up to the top floor.

DUN MOROGH

  • Get the quest Beer Basted Boar Ribs from Ragnar Thunderbrew standing outside the inn.
  • Get Tools for Steelgrill from Tharek Blackstone standing in front of the other building.

OPTIONAL: Temporarily drop Skinning and switch to Mining until level 17 to complete two Blacksmithing quests that give Ironforge/Stormwind rep - - Supplying the Front and Gearing Redridge. You can buy a Mining Pick from Thrawn Boltar in the building behind Tharek Blackstone and learn Mining from Yarr Hammerstone at Steelgrill's Depot, 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.


  • Go north and get Operation Recombobulation from Razzle Sprysprocket in the building on the left with the spinning gear on top.

  • Return to Kharanos, go inside the inn and buy one Rhapsody Malt from Inkeeper Belm, sell any junk gray items but save all meat (you need 4 Chunks of Boar Meat for another quest and all other meat will be used to level Cooking after you train Journeyman).
  • Turn in Beer Basted Boar Ribs (625xp, 1s75c, 5 Beer Basted Boar Ribs, Recipe: Beer Basted Boar Ribs, 110IF/GE) to Ragnar Thunderbrew outside the inn.

  • Sell junk to Hegnar Rumbleshot, then continue southwest to Coldridge Valley, checking for Earthroot along the hillsides.

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, just continue running through the tunnel until you escape out the other side.

  • Go northwest into Anvilmar and get Bring Back the Mug from Durnan Furcutter.
  • Go southwest back to the Troll Cave and zoom in your camera to better see your way inside the cave tunnels.

  • 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.

  • Continue to pick pocket/kill/loot Frostmane trolls and get Shimmerweed from Shimmerweed Baskets.

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

  • Once you're done, carefully make your way down the steep south side of the mountain down into Chill Breeze Valley.
  • Go west, then southwest through the cluster of trees into another valley towards Old Icebeard's cave, watching carefully for Old Icebeard.
  • When you reach Old Icebeard's cave, go north up the mountain path and get Tundra MacGrann's Stolen Stash from Tundra MacGrann.
  • Go back down the mountainside, wait for Old Icebeard to leave the cave, loot the Old Meat Locker and return to Tundra MacGrann.
  • Turn in Tundra MacGrann's Stolen Stash (900xp, armor, 110IF/GE) then drop down the north side of the mountain and go northwest to Brewnall Village.
  • Turn in The Perfect Stout (775xp, Goat Fur Cloak, 110IF/GE) to Rejold Barleybrew.
  • Hearth to Kharanos.
  • Turn in Supplies to Tannok (110xp, 5 Tough Jerky, 27IF/GE) 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 Bitter Rivals (140xp, 28IF/GE), get Return to Marleth then go back upstairs.
  • Get Road to Salvation from the Rogue Trainer, Hogral Bakkan.
  • 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 the Thistlewood Dagger in your offhand.
  • Get Rejold's New Brew (the breadcrumb quest which precedes Shimmer Stout) from Tharek Blackstone across from the inn (if it's available). (BETA: It is available)
  • Turn in Senir's Observations Pt. 2 (340xp, 82IF/GE) to Senir Whitebeard south of the inn, get Frostmane Hold then go northeast to Steelgrill's Depot.
  • Turn in The Grizzled Den (625xp, 1s75c, 110IF/GE) to Pilot Stonegear.
  • Go back east to Brewnall Village, killing/skinning Ice Claw Bears, Elder Crag Boars and Snow Leopards along the way.

  • Finish killing/skinning Ice Claw Bears, Elder Crag Boars and Snow Leopards, then return to Brewnall Village. You may want to group up with someone to get this completed quicker.
  • Turn in A Favor for Evershine (525xp, 83IF/GE) to Rejold Barleybrew and get Return to Bellowfiz.

Level 11: Imp. Sinister Strike 2/2, weapon upgrade, Elwynn Forest quests

  • Go west to Frostmane Hold.
  • 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. Try to kill the 5 Frostmane Headhunters before you go too deep into the caves. Once you've killed all 5, carefully stealth your way through the caves until you complete the exploration portion of the mission. If you make a mistake and drop out of stealth before completing the exploration, pop Sprint and Evasion and race through the caves to get that done before you die. You should rez back at Kharanos, which is where you want to end up anyway.

  • Return east to Kharanos, turn in Frostmane Hold (600xp, armor, 82IF/GE) to Senir Whitebeard and get The Reports.
  • Go inside the inn, sell junk (but not meat) and buy as many Rhapsody Malt from Inkeeper Belm as you have Crag Boar Ribs.
  • Go north to turn in Operation Recombobulation (850xp, Driving Gloves, 110IF/GE) to Razzle Sprysprocket in the building with the spinning gear on top.
  • Go east to Steelgrill's Depot to turn in Return to Bellowfiz (875xp, weapon, 165IF/GE) to Pilot Bellowfiz.
  • Sprint north to Ironforge.

IRONFORGE

  • Put all meat (except 4 Chunks of Boar Meat) and other items you want to save in the bank, but try to sell enough loot to get to 35s to learn One Handed Swords (10s) and to buy a decent sword (20-25s) unless you already picked one up during your adventures.
  • Also put Senir's Report, the Amethyst Phial and the Barrel of Shimmer Stout in the bank to free up bag space until you turn them in later.
  • If you have 35s and want to purchase a sword, take a gryphon flight to Thelsamar, Loch Modan (1s10c). Otherwise, take the free Deeprun Tram to Stormwind City.

LOCH MODAN

  • Buy a Feral Blade (24s7c) or Enamelled Broadsword (28s77c) from Morhan Coppertongue outside the first building on the left.

Those are two of the better weapons you can wield at your level. However, if they're sold out or you can't afford either of them, you'll still have other options.

  • Take a gryphon flight to Stormwind City (1s60c).

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 or Enamelled Broadsword, then buy a Cutlass (20s23c) from Gunther or Marda. If you can't afford a Cutlass, then you'll have one more chance at a decent sword in Elwynn Forest.

If you have plenty of silver, you may want to learn Journeyman Herbalism from a trainer (don't upgrade Skinning yet). Also, Adair Gilroy in the northeast Mage Quarter outside The Stockade sells scrolls that can help in your adventures. Charys Yserian in the western Mage Quarter sells Healing Potions (3s) that you can start using at level 12.

  • Sprint out to Elwynn Forest.

ELWYNN FOREST

  • Check for Earthroot along the hillsides on either side of the Stormwind City gates, then go south to Goldshire.

  • Go inside the inn and get Kobold Candles from William Pestle.

  • Return east, while killing kobolds, to Billy Maclure at The Maclure Vineyards to turn in Back to Billy (140xp, 27SW) 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 (875xp, Lion-stamped Gloves, 165SW) to "Auntie" Bernice Stonefield.
  • Pick herbs on your way back to Goldshire.
  • Turn in Gold Dust Exchange (650xp, 1s75c, Bag of Marbles, 110SW) to Remy "Two Times".
  • Save the Bag of Marbles for use on particularly tough 1-on-1 battles against Rares/Elites as you're leveling (or save it for endgame use).
  • Turn in The Fargodeep Mine (480xp, 1s25c, 83SW) to Marshal Dughan, then get The Jasperlode Mine.
  • Go in the inn and sell junk.
  • Turn in Note to William (140xp, 27SW) and Kobold Candles (450xp, 1s25c, 5 Glowing Wax Stick, 83SW) to William Pestle and get Collecting Kelp and Shipment to Stormwind.
  • Go east around the northern side of Crystal Lake while picking herbs to kill Murlocs for 4 Crystal Kelp Frond.
  • If you still need a sword, or want a second sword (without having to buy it), then go northeast around the mountainrange to Stone Cairn Lake. Search the gnoll camps on the northwestern side of the lake for the rare gnoll, Fedfennel. He has a chance to drop the Cutlass-equivalent Pale Skinner sword as well as an 8 slot bag.

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.

  • Go into the inn and turn in Collecting Kelp (320xp, 55SW) to William Pestle, wait a few seconds, then get The Escape.
  • Get the quest Seek out SI: 7 from the Rogue Trainer, Keryn Sylvius, upstairs. NOTE: This quest gives no rep, but does lead to a nice dagger, Blade of Cunning.
  • Go south to the Maclure Vineyard, while picking herbs, to turn in The Escape (800xp, 5 Minor Healing Potion, 165SW) to Maybell Maclure.
  • Hearth to Stormwind City.

  • Turn in Shipment to Stormwind (800xp, 3s50c, 15 Explosive Rocket, 165SW) to Morgan Pestle in The Trade District.

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

  • Put the Explosive Rockets on your action bar and save them for tough battles against multiple enemies.
  • Visit Osborne the Night Man in the SI:7 Headquarters near Old Town 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.

  • Visit the various profession trainers to level up any of your professions, but not Skinning because you'll be dropping it again soon. Try to save about 5s for gryphon flights.
  • If you can afford it, buy a Strong Fishing Pole (8s10c) from Catherine Leland located in the canal area to replace the one in your bank.
  • Visit the bank, drop off anything you want to save.
  • Take a gryphon flight for 50c or the free Deeprun Tram to Ironforge.

IRONFORGE

  • Set your hearthstone in the Ironforge Inn.
  • Take a gryphon flight to Menethil Harbor (3s30c).

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 (for free even).

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.
  • If you can afford it and want a more powerful ranged weapon, 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.

  • Replace Throw with Shoot Bows on your action bar and get rid of your throwing daggers.
  • Go east out of Darnassus to Teldrassil.

TELDRASSIL

  • Head southeast to Lake Al'Ameth, picking herbs and killing/skinning all gray skinnable mobs along the way.

From this point forward, treat all gray skinnable mobs as easy critter kills for quick skins. Also, if your Herbalism is 50+, you'll be able to pick Mageroyal now, so save all Swiftthistle you get from those plants for eventually making Thistle Teas.

  • Go around the east end of the lake, killing/looting level 5/6 Timberlings and using time between kills to collect sprouts/herbs as you heal.
  • Return to Denalan to turn in Timberling Seeds (650xp, food, 110D) and Timberling Sprouts (800xp, armor, 3s50c, 165D) and get Rellian Greenspyre.
  • Return northwest to Dolanaar, picking herbs along the way.

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, 110D) 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 (there is no Mining in Teldrassil), make as many potions as you need, then drop Alchemy and learn Skinning again from Radnaal Maneweaver near the bridge on the road back to Darnassus. 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. BETA: This quest is not nearly as difficult as I'd expected.

  • 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 into the cave, go right and up the slope past all enemies until you find Lord Melenas on a balcony.
  • 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, 110D) and Ferocitas the Dream Eater (875xp, 4s50c, 165D) to Tallonkai Swiftroot at the top of the tree.
  • Go west while picking herbs then stop off at the Leatherworking/Skinning house by the bridge if you need to learn Skinning again.
  • Go southwest to Gnarlpine Hold and get The Glowing Fruit from the glowing Strange Fruited Plant.
  • Go northwest to Darnassus.

DARNASSUS

  • Go northwest to the Cenarion Enclave and turn in Rellian Greenspyre (320xp, 55D) 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. Get the Amethyst Phial out.
  • 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 for 5 Mossy Tumors.

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 along the river near 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) and fill the Amethyst Phial in the moonwell.
  • Go 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 (or just walk back to save the repair costs).

DARNASSUS

  • If it's available, get Nessa Shadowsong from Mydrannul in eastern Darnassus. (BETA: Not available to Humans)
  • Go northwest to the Cenarion Enclave and turn in Tumors (975xp, 6s, Pruning Knife, 165D, 41Sp) to Rellian Greenspyre and get Return to Denalan.
  • Sell junk and repair, then go east out of Darnassus back to Teldrassil.

TELDRASSIL

  • Go east past the Leatherworking/Skinning house until you reach the bridge, where you'll drop down and go 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 Shamans for the Shaman Voodoo Charm then make your way back to Oben Rageclaw. If you're having trouble finding it, go to the surface for more Gnarlpine Shamans.
  • Turn in The Sleeping Druid (700xp, 110D) 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 (1,050xp, Brushwood Blade, 165D) to Oben Rageclaw and equip your new sword (which straps across your back!)

Level 13: Imp. Gouge 2/3, Teldrassil/Dun Morogh quests

  • 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.

  • Go across the road into the inn and get The Apple Falls from Jannok Breezesong. (BETA: Apparently you can get more than one Rogue class quest.)
  • Turn in Crown of the Earth Pt. 5 (650xp, 82D) 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 Glowing Fruit (850xp, 3s50c, 110D) to Denalan and kill the 3 Boglings that appear for their Bogling Roots.
  • Turn in The Shimmering Frond (850xp, 3s50c, 110D) and click on the Sprouted Frond in the planter to complete The Sprouted Fronds (85xp, 5 Sprouted Fronds, 11D).
  • Turn in Return to Denalan (80xp, 11D) 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, 6s, armor, 165D) to Denalan.

Use the Rough Sharpening Stones and/or Rough Weightstones on your weapons until you get poisons (and even after that save them for poison immune mobs).


  • Turn in The Reports (420xp, 1s75c, 55IF/GE) 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.
  • If you weren't able to afford Bows training earlier, train in Guns (10s) from Buliwyf Stonehand.
  • If you train in Guns, go downstairs and buy a Hunter's Boomstick (13s24c) and Heavy Shot (50c) from Thalgus Thunderfist then replace Throw with Shoot Guns on your action bar.
  • Visit the various profession trainers to level up any of your professions.
  • Go to Tinker Town to buy Lesser Healing Potions from Soolie Berryfizz. (BETA: She doesn't appear to sell these.)
  • Go out the Gates of Ironforge to Dun Morogh.

DUN MOROGH

  • Go southeast to Gol'Bolar Quarry, picking herbs and skinning critters.
  • Get the quests The Public Servant from Senator Mehr Stonehallow and Those Blasted Troggs! from Foreman Stonebrow.

Be careful with these two quests. These troggs have a knockdown ability and always run for help when they get low on health.

  • Buff up, go down into the quarry, zoom in your camera and carefully pick pocket/kill all troggs inside the cave.

Pick an isolated trogg, pick pocket, Sinister Strike, Slice and Dice, and whittle them down with autoattacks while your energy recharges. Draw them away from adds, unleash two Sinister Strikes and finish them off with an Eviscerate before they get a chance to run off.

  • Turn in The Public Servant (650xp, 3s, 82IF/GE) to Senator Mehr Stonehallow and Those Blasted Troggs! (600xp, 2s, 83IF/GE) to Foreman Stonebrow.
  • Sell all junk, then head northeast along the road, picking herbs to North Gate Pass.
  • Continue through the tunnel into North Gate Outpost then get the quest The Lost Pilot from Pilot Hammerfoot.
  • Go northwest up the road until you reach The Dwarven Corpse, turn in The Lost Pilot (420xp, armor, 55IF/GE) and accept A Pilot's Revenge.
  • Head west up the hill past The Dwarven Corpse and defeat Mangeclaw.
  • Return to Pilot Hammerfoot to turn in A Pilot's Revenge (650xp, Compact Hammer, 82IF/GE). You can use that hammer to level up your Maces skill.
  • Go back south then east through South Gate Pass to South Gate Outpost.
  • Turn in Shimmer Stout (420xp, 55IF/GE) to Mountaineer Barleybrew and get Stout to Kadrell.
  • Continue east into Loch Modan.

LOCH MODAN


OPTIONAL: If doing Supplying the Front and Gearing Redridge, keep an eye out for Tin Ore that you can mine for Coarse Stone in Loch Modan. Coarse Stone is used to make Coarse Weightstones/Coarse Sharpening Stones to use on your weapons until you get Poisons at level 20.


  • Go to the watchtower and get In Defense of the King's Lands from Mountaineer Cobbleflint outside and The Trogg Threat from Captain Rugelfuss inside.

IRONFORGE

  • Visit the Rogue Trainer to train skills (Sinister Strike Rank 3 and Garrote for 24s) 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.

  • Turn in Gryth Thurden (210xp) to the Ironforge Gryphon Master and get Return to Brock. (BETA: Not available to Humans)
  • Buy Lesser Healing Potions from Soolie Berryfizz in Tinker Town.
  • Visit the various profession trainers to level up any of your professions.

OPTIONAL: If you really want to be a quest completionist and get an early start on Steamwheedle Cartel reputation (Booty Bay, Everlook, Gadgetzan, Ratchet), then you can take a short field trip to Durotar, deep in Horde territory. If you're on a PVP server, this will be a challenge for you. However, keep in mind that the extra experience you get from killing non-essential mobs while completing non-Alliance quests may cause later Alliance quests to go gray and give you less rep.

  • Take a gryphon flight to Menethil Harbor, go out onto the left (south) dock to Theramore Isle and take the ship.

DUSTWALLOW MARSH

  • Grab the FP, then jump into the Great Sea north of Theramore Isle. Swim north along the coast, avoiding all Murloc-infested islands while keeping an eye out for pools of Floating Wreckage, until you reach Ratchet in The Barrens.

THE BARRENS

  • Grab the Ratchet FP, then take the ship to Booty Bay.

STRANGLETHORN VALE

Rogues can train skills with Ian Strom located in one of the bedrooms above the Salty Sailor Tavern and buy poison supplies from Sly Garrett located in the alley beneath the Deep South Tannery while in Booty Bay.

THE BARRENS

  • Jump in the water and swim east then around to the north until you reach the eastern shore of Durotar.

  • Take a gryphon flight to Stormwind City.

STORMWIND CITY

  • Go southeast to the SI:7 Headquarters near Old Town to turn in Seek out SI: 7 (210xp, 85c, 0Rep) to Master Mathias Shaw and get Snatch and Grab (Note: This quest gives no rep, but does lead to a nice dagger, Blade of Cunning).

If you need them, Adair Gilroy in the northeast Mage Quarter outside The Stockade 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).

  • Sprint out to Elwynn Forest.

ELWYNN FORES

  • Go south to Goldshire and set your hearthstone at the Goldshire Inn.
  • Go northeast along the ridgeline until you reach Jasperlode Mine.
  • Carefully stealth into Jasperlode Mine along the tracks around to the right and straight through the 3-way intersection to finish the exploration quest then leave the mine (unless you have Mining and want to stick around to mine copper).

  • Go east to the bridge, and turn in Further Concerns (420xp, 55SW) to Guard Thomas and get Find the Lost Guards and Protect the Frontier but SKIP Report to Gryan Stoutmantle. (BETA: Bounty on Murlocs is not available until after you turn in Deliver Thomas' Report.)
  • Go north along the west side of the river, picking herbs and killing/skinning all Young Forest Bears along your path.

  • Get Red Linen Goods from Sara Timberlain.
  • Get A Bundle of Trouble from Supervisor Raelen. Note: This quest gives no reputation.
  • Sell junk to the vendor nearby then buff up.
  • Collect bundles of wood around trees to the northeast between Eastvale Camp and the Murloc camp while killing Prowlers/Young Forest Bears.

In that Murloc camp, you'll find Rolf's corpse between two huts surrounded by Murlocs. After clearing out the wolves and bears, start pulling single Murlocs. If you pull a 2nd or 3rd Murloc, use your Explosive Rockets and pop Evasion and back up a little so they face your dodges from the front. If you pull any more Murlocs, gouge and kite the first one while running south until the adds break off, then kill the one you gouged.

  • Repeat this process until you can safely turn in Discover Rolf's Fate (420xp, 55SW) at Rolf's corpse, and get Report to Thomas.
  • Finish killing Prowlers and Young Forest Bears south of the Murloc camps while collecting Bundles of Wood.

  • Use Evasion to kill Princess, loot her, then finish off her guards.
  • Kill/loot Defias Bandits around Brackwell Pumpkin Patch for 6 Red Linen Bandanas and hopefully the Westfall Deed until your Evasion is ready again.
  • Stealth inside the house, sap Surena Caledon and use Evasion to defeat Morgan the Collector and Erlan Drudgemoor, then kill Surena Caledon (these three have a higher chance of dropping the Westfall Deed).
  • Repeat the two prior steps until you have 6 Red Linen Bandanas and hopefully the Westfall Deed.

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 this one quest.

  • When you do finally get the Westfall Deed, read it to get the quest Furlbrow's Deed.
  • Hearth or sprint back west to Goldshire.
  • Cook up meat and sell junk.
  • If you've reached 40 in First Aid, learn Heavy Linen Bandage from Michelle Belle upstairs, then sell most of your regular Linen Bandages.

  • Return southwest to the bridge.
  • Turn in Bounty on Murlocs (850xp, Long Bayonet, 110SW) to Guard Thomas.
  • Go southwest through the forest to Jerod's Landing (saving your sprint), killing all gray level 8/9 Defias Bandits/Defias Dockworkers if you still need Westfall Deed.
  • When you reach the dock, be patient and wait for all mobs to leave the dock area.
  • Stealth out onto the dock and hide behind the shed to wait for The Defias Dockmaster. The Defias Dockmaster will eventually walk outside and stand on the dock.

  • Get A Swift Message from Quartermaster Lewis inside the tower behind Gryan Stoutmantle and sell all junk.
  • Turn in A Swift Message (200xp, 28SW) to Thor the Gryphon Master located just to the south and get Continue to Stormwind.
  • Go northeast across the river back to Elwynn Forest.

ELWYNN FOREST

  • Go east to Hogger's camp, located south of Westbrook Garrison.
  • Buff up and kill gnolls and/or the rare Gruff Swiftbite for 8 Painted Gnoll Armbands and the Gold Pickup Schedule.

As before with the Westfall Deed, you'll be killing many gray/green mobs until you hopefully get a single quest drop, the Gold Pickup Schedule, so stop after 8 Painted Gnoll Armbands and come back later if you wish. If your bags start to get full, you can sell junk to Homer Stonefield just across the river to the east.

  • Save Hogger for last, then use Garrote, Evasion, the Severed Voodoo Claw, a Bogling Root and a Healing Potion to solo him.
  • If you get the Gold Pickup Schedule, click on it to accept The Collector then go north to Westbrook Garrison.
  • Turn in Riverpaw Gnoll Bounty (850xp, armor, 110SW) to Deputy Rainer at Westbrook Garrison.

  • Set your hearthstone in the Ironforge Inn.

OPTIONAL: Turn in Road to Salvation (420xp, 1s75c, 0Rep) to Hulfdan Blackbeard in the Forlorn Cavern and get Simple Subterfugin'. That quest sends you to western Dun Morogh to turn it in (850xp, 0Rep) to Onin MacHammar (who can be found on top of a wooden tower outside Gnomeregan) and back to Ironforge to complete Onin's Report (850xp, Blade of Cunning, 0Rep) for another Blade of Cunning. This is the Dwarven version of the level 10 Rogue class questline. Class quests do not give any reputation rewards and the extra experience may cause later rep quests to go gray. Also, unfortunately, Blade of Cunning is a unique weapon, so you can't actually hold or wield two of them. You'll have to sell the first one in order to complete the final quest for a new Blade of Cunning.

  • 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 and Thief's Blade (Mr. Smite) is ideal for your offhand.

  • Leave the instance and return to Westfall.

Level 22: Endurance 2/2, Level 17 Redridge/Loch Modan/Darkshore

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).

  • If you still need to complete any other Westfall quests, do so now.

OPTIONAL: If you want to continue working on Steamwheedle Cartel reputation and quest in the Wailing Caverns dungeon, take a gryphon flight to Booty Bay then take the ship to Ratchet.

  • Get Samophlange from Sputtervalve by the gryphon master and SKIP Ziz Fizziks.
  • Get Southsea Freebooters from Gazlowe, located upstairs in the northern, Engineering Trainer building.
  • Get WANTED: Baron Longshore from the sign on the wall to the left of the bank.
  • Get Root Samples and Raptor Horns from Mebok Mizzyrix standing west of the bank. SKIP Deepmoss Spider Eggs and Blueleaf Tubers.

You will be questing in Horde territory again, so watch your back and be ready for some PVP.

  • Pick herbs as you go south to kill/loot 12 Southsea Brigands, 6 Southsea Cannoneers and Baron Longshore (if he's around) then return to Ratchet.
  • DO NOT turn in WANTED: Baron Longshore, but do turn in Southsea Freebooters (750xp) to Gazlowe in the northern building and get The Missing Shipment.

  • Go to the far northeast, picking herbs and killing/looting/skinning Sunscale Scytheclaws, to Boulder Lode Mine.

Be extra careful questing in northern Barrens, because if you die, you'll end up far away, in a zone to the north, at the eastern Ashenvale graveyard. (BETA: You actually end up at The Crossroads graveyard.)

  • Kill/loot low level Venture Co. Enforcers and Venture Co. Overseers for the Cats Eye Emerald.

  • Go south across the pool, and stealth up the ramp to the top of the platform to kill/loot Supervisor Lugwizzle.

  • Escort Wizzlecrank's Shredder (staying in stealth as much as possible) to the west until the escort quest is complete (or you die trying).
  • Return south to Ratchet.
  • Ask in General chat if a Wailing Caverns group is forming that wants to complete all quests and kill the Serpent Lords.

Not many Alliance players run Wailing Caverns (aside from players looking for twink gear) so you may not be able to get a group together. Try doing a /who Wailing command and a /who Barrens command to find interested players and try to join or form a group, letting them know that you have multiple dungeon quests you can share. If you still can't form a group, you might try asking around when you return to Stormwind City.

  • Turn in Miner's Fortune (1,700xp, Sack of Coins) to Wharfmaster Dizzywig on the dock.

STORMWIND CITY

  • Put the Thistlenettle's Badge, the Gnoam Sprecklesprocket and the Unsent Letter in your bank. If you have a Silver Bar, also put that in the bank. If you have any Crisp Spider Meat, Underbelly Whelp Scales or any other Redridge Mountain quest items in the bank, get them out. You'll need 5 Crisp Spider Meat for a quest, so check the AH for any more that you can get inexpensively.
  • Turn in Collecting Memories (1,350xp, Dusty Mining Gloves, 110IF, 28Sp) but NOT Oh Brother. . . to Foreman Thistlenettle in the Dwarven District.

  • Visit the Rogue Trainer to learn new skills (Garrote Rank 2, Sinister Strike Rank 4, Distract, Vanish) for 1g44s.
  • Buy 20 Flash Powder from Jasper Fel, the Shady Dealer, in the SI:7 Headquarters.

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.
  • If you were unable to get a weapon upgrade from The Deadmines, then check the AH for a cheap Fighter Broadsword.
  • Empty out your bags as much as possible.

  • Apply poisons and go along the road southeast of the lake killing/looting/skinning all Black Dragon Whelps, boars, condors, spiders, Redridge Mongrels and Redridge Poachers until you've completed all three quests. Save your Sprint, Evasion and most importantly Vanish in case you aggro too many mobs or get ganked by a higher level Horde player.
  • Turn in Assessing the Threat (950xp, 7s, 83SW, 21Sp) to Deputy Feldon by the gryphon.
  • Turn in Underbelly Scales (1,700xp, Black Whelp Gloves, 165SW, 41Sp) to Verner Osgood under the blacksmith shed but SKIP A Baying of Gnolls.

  • Go north to Thelsamar and set your hearthstone there.

OPTIONAL: Complete a run in the Shadowfang Keep dungeon if you still want a chance at a weapon upgrade (Shadowfang or Face Smasher). Unfortunately, you won't have any quests for that dungeon, but you might be able to join a Paladin and/or Warlock looking to complete one of their class quests there. If you're interested, then go to Ironforge and ask in General Chat for an SFK group, then take a gryphon flight to Menethil Harbor, go north into Arathi Highlands, get the Refuge Pointe FP, go west to Hillsbrad Foothills, get the Southshore FP then go further west to Silverpine Forest.


  • Take a gryphon flight to Menethil Harbor.

WETLANDS

  • OPTIONAL: Get The Greenwarden from First Mate Fitzsimmons outside the inn (this questline gives no rep).

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. Both boxes are hard to see in the dark, located at the very bottom on the western side of each ship.
  • Continue north along the beach, killing/looting low level Reef Crawlers (and Encrusted Tide Crawlers beyond Cliffspring River until you get the Bottom of Gelkak's Key) for 6 Fine Crab Chunks, then go south to the road and east to the bridge.
  • Go southeast along the south side of the Cliffspring River until you reach the Blackwood furbolg camps to get the Talisman of Corruption from Xabraxxis.
  • Assuming the Talisman of Corruption isn't already in a bag on the ground, go through the furbolg camps to the southwest, looting the Blackwood Fruit Stores, the Blackwood Nut Stores and the Blackwood Grain Stores.

  • Go north over the river across the log and northeast up the mountain 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. If you get a quest item, Book: The Powers Below, from any Twilight Disciples or Twilight Thugs, 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 (save all Crawler Claws for Cooking).
  • DO NOT turn in Tharnariun's Hope to Tharnariun Treetender outside the eastern building (yet).

  • North of that Beached Sea Creature you'll find the final two Beached Sea Turtles, also located on islands.
  • Be extra careful, as you'll have very little dry ground to work with and they can swim faster than you.

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

Level 40: Adrenaline Rush 1/1

Congratulations on reaching level 40! If you've completed most or all of the quests in this guide, then you should have around the following reputation totals:

  • Darnassus: 3,715/21,000 Revered
  • Gnomeregan Exiles: 7,781/12,000 Honored
  • Ironforge: 11,580/12,000 Honored
  • Stormwind: 6,469/21,000 Revered

As you can tell, reaching Exalted with another race by level 40 is just not possible. To reach Exalted, you will need to complete many more quests and/or complete "turn-in" quests. At level 47, you can turn in Morrowgrain and Un'Goro Soil for Darnassus rep. At level 50, you can complete Runecloth turn-ins for any of the four factions.

As far as your level 40 mount in concerned, unfortunately you'll be stuck with your own race's mount for now. Also, you may not have all of the 90 gold needed to purchase Apprentice Riding along with your first mount. If that's the case, you have several options available to you.

If you haven't gotten An Old History Book yet, you could go back and kill humanoids in Duskwood until you do. Another option is to kill level 30-40 humanoids anywhere in the world (but not Duskwood unfortunately) for a chance at the Pendant of Myzrael, to complete that elusive quest.

Killing humanoids also serves two other important purposes. You can pickpocket them for lockboxes to work on your Pick Lock skill and kill them for cloth to level up your First Aid. The numerous humanoids in Kurzen's Camp and caves are very good targets, as they can help you achieve several objectives all at once (Worn Junkboxes, Silk Cloth, Jungle Remedy, Fadeleaf, and Green Hills of Stranglethorn pages).

Or, if you want another challenge, finish the last three Magram Centaur quests in Desolace, then declare war with them and kill hundreds of Magram Centaurs to reach Friendly reputation with the Gelkis so you can work on their questline.
