I leveled a Tauren druid, you finish the Mulgore quests at about lvl 11, you grind a bit more and you ding 12. You pick all RFC quests and when you finish everything you are almost lvl 15. Then you start comfortably questing in the barrens until 17 then you do WC smoothly until 20.

Then I tried alliance, you finish goldshire quests at about lvl 9, the other quests in Elwynn Forest are 11+. So I made my way to Dun Morogh and did some quests there until 11. When back to Elwynn and finished what was left and barely dinged 12. Then you go to the hell that is Westfall, you are under leveled, mobs are packed, good luck as a solo warrior. After going trough hell and high water you ding 17 and can finally grind Dead Mines to 20.

All that could have been so much smoother on Alliance side if they had a RFC equivalent.

Loch Modan and Westfall got me to 19/20 easily, I then went over to Redridge which is a level 16+ zone I believe. You also have the option of Darkshore from 10/11+

Idk i always leave Elwynn lvl 12 when i play human. Westfall i leave usually around 15/16, just right for Redridge. Do that until 18 or so when most quests are 20+, at which point i go and do some duskwood quests. Then i alternate redridge/duskwood. This is all solo too, you could probly group and finish all redridge quests in one go; well, you need to for the elite in the keep.

There’s probably a bit more faffing about but redridge & duskwood are among my favorite zones in wow.

Same here. In the teens I jumped around Darkshore, Westfall and Loch Modan.

However, I hear what you're saying. Mulgore quests get you far, and I never had to leave the Barrens for Silverpine or whatnot on my Horde characters.

There's no way you can finish Elwynn Forest quests and not be 11. Now, you do probably want to venture over to Loch Modan for a level around 13-14, maybe a level and a half. But other than that you can get through the 11-20 range pretty easily in Westfall/Redridge.

I mean it's not perfect for Horde either. Yeah, you're in the Barrens, but the barrens may as well be two zones if we're talking about size. And even then the smoothest method is to bounce into Stonetalon for a little bit too.

But I'm not sure how much this thread is about the 1-10 range or the 11-20 range, but there's basically no way you can do the original starting zone and not hit level 10 or 11 unless you're missing quests.

My warrior was level 11 when I finished Elwynn. Then became 14 in Westfall with still more quests..just didn't keep playing him.

100% chance you missed quests. There are 40+ level 1-11 quests in elwynn not including class quests, https://classic.wowhead.com/elwynn-forest#quests

You don't even have to complete them all to get to 10 or 11. Total quest xp rewards are >18,000 which is enough to get you to most of the way through level 7 alone. (level 8 is cumulative ~21,100 xp, level 10 is ~35,200). You only need to kill 4 times your level mobs of the same level to make up the remaining xp. ONLY 4x mobs times level (4 mobs at level 1, 20 mobs at level 5, 40 mobs at level 10). Everyone here knows you kill WAY more than that from 1-2 quests, let alone 40+ quests. (average of 5.5 kills per quest)

You missed a lot of content. in Elwynne, but even so, thats elwynne alone. You can do this same thin in Dun murroh or NE land.

Also, ally 1-20 is not designed like horde 1-20. As horde, you actually can dump into barrens at 10, go to one location, get an full quest log and grind out all your levels from a single hub, with a pit stop into RFC. As ally, you are expected to travel, between westfall, Loch Modan and Redridge, and even a little into duskwood towards the end. If you stay in a zone and try and complete the quests before going to next zone, you WILL struggle, you will be doing quests to hard for you level, and you will outlevel the quests in the other zones having them be green or gray by the time you are forced into the zone you should have went into 5 levels ago. You ARE forced to run between all three zones constantly, and if you don't, you leave a LOT of quests locked behind the errand / delivery type quests. It is easy, if you actually follow the quest test, rather than questy, but it is different style than horde.


But a normal 10-20 looks like 1-3 quests into westfall, head to loch modan for 2 levels, head to redridge for 1-1.5 levels, head to westfall for 1 -1.5 levels, head to loch modan for 1-1.5 levels, head to redridge 1-1.5 levels, head to westfall for 1.5-2 levels, head to redridge for 1.5-2 levels, head to loch modan for .5-1 level, head to duskwood for .5 levels.

As a heads up, you get this same thing around 35 to 40.

Westfall, Redridge, and Duskwood are collectively your 12-29. My group came over from Darkshore at 14 (1-14 in Teldrassil and Darkshore), and quested only in those three zones from 14 to 29, which included 1 Deadmines run, 2 BFD runs, and 1 Stockade run. If you look at size of the zones, those three combined are basically the size of the Barrens. Possibly even smaller. It just feels like more because there's actual different zones. I quite like it that way tbh because it better than starring at the same brown desert for nearly 20 levels.

You can say that about literally any three zones in the game. That's how big the barrens are.

I've only really had this problem as alliance when I don't play a night elf, which is rarely, especially since I am horde.

Teldrassil and Darkshore can take you comfortably to 16, 20 if you grind. Sure, Darkshore is more spread out and will lead to more running around, but it's akin to the barrens in that you can pretty much level there from 10-20.

Darkshore from 10/11 to 17. Redridge from 17 to when you can't comfortably quest anymore. Then you go back to Darkshore and finish up.

Dude I don't even do any of these zones, I roll straight from Teldrassil to Darkshore, don't leave darkshore until probably 17 or 18. That's just questing in those two zones. Then I'll hit the Ashenvale quests at Maestra's Post, grab the Astranaar FP. Then I'll finally make the run to SW, go do only the the chain quest, "The Defias Brotherhood", then run Deadmines probably once. I'm usually 20-21 at this point. I have no idea what you are doing to not have quests.

Maybe try playing anything other than warlock and hunter and you might understand.

I've played every class other than druid to max level, thanks.

Edit: Also, playing a class that is better at soloing does make you get more xp from quests, and does not make more quests available to you. Your original post is whining that alliance doesn't have an easy 10-20 zone. We do. It's called Darkshore. Also, if you can't figure out how to group with one of the other 15000 players in the 10-20 zones right now to do a quest thats giving you trouble, I don't know how to help you.

PS: Warriors are not that hard to level.

I did my gnome mage from level 7 I ran to Teldrassil and did the nelf starting quests and went into to darkshore, was there until 19 then headed over there grab the loch modan ring and ran deadmines with the quests. I have no idea how you missed so many quests in the human area, usually you miss quests in Dun Morogh if you don't know where to go

Darkshore is insane, I would definitely recommend checking that place out. I'm currently level 16 and starting in Loch Modan, so that will definitely last me until 18, without even having touched Westfall / Redridge.

Go over that list thoroughly and tell me you did all those quests and you were only level 9.

People are treating you like a retard because it's mathematically impossible to do every quest in Elwynn and be level 9, so there is no way that you did every quest. But you are too busy wallowing in self pity to listen to the advice that people have been trying to give you (like go to Darkshore) and instead you have spent most of the thread trying to talk shit to the very same people trying to help you out. Grow up.
