First Steps Edit

Welcome to the guide. It will try to take you through all Durotar quests, in a way I find to be optimal.

Welcome to The DenEdit

You start out at The Den. Talk to IconSmall Orc MaleKaltunk to get Horde 15 [1] Your Place In The World. Tun it in at IconSmall Orc MaleGornek. Accept Horde 15 [2] Cutting Teeth.

Boared Yet?Edit

Head east to leave The Den, then north off the road. You will soon start seeing Combat 15 Mottled Boars. Kill 10 of them to accomplish Horde 15 [2] Cutting Teeth.

First TrialEdit

Walk to IconSmall Troll MaleHana'zua[40.6, 62.7]
and accept Horde 15 [5] Sarkoth. Head south from IconSmall Troll MaleHana'zua and find Combat 15 Sarkoth[40.5, 66.0]
. Kill him and loot Inv misc monsterclaw 01 [Sarkoth's Mangled Claw] to finish the quest.

Walk back to IconSmall Troll MaleHana'zua and turn in Horde 15 [5] Sarkoth. Accept Horde 15 [5] Sarkoth (2). Head back to The Den.

Village TourEdit

Turn in Horde 15 [2] Cutting Teeth at IconSmall Orc MaleGornek and accept Horde 15 [3] Sting of the Scorpid. Also turn in Horde 15 [5] Sarkoth (2). Accept your class quest. Go deep into the den and find a vendor. Sell junk. Go to your class trainer, turn in the quest and learn new skills.

Unless your class is Warlock, get Horde 15 [4] Vile Familiars from IconSmall Orc FemaleZureetha Fargaze.

Grab Horde 15 [3] Galgar's Cactus Apple Surprise from IconSmall Orc MaleGalgar and Horde 15 [4] Lazy Peons from IconSmall Orc MaleForeman Thazz'ril.

Cleansing the ValleyEdit

Head north from IconSmall Orc MaleForeman Thazz'ril and look for glowing fruit in the cactus trees. Right-click them to get Inv misc food 19 [Cactus Apple]s for Horde 15 [3] Galgar's Cactus Apple Surprise.

Head west until you start seeing Combat 15 Scorpid Workers. Kill them while moving north and loot their tails for Horde 15 [3] Sting of the Scorpid.

If you see peons sleeping around (with Zzz over their head), walk over to them and use Inv mace 11 [Foreman's Blackjack] you will find in your backpack. You have to wake up 5 of them for Horde 15 [4] Lazy Peons.

Once you have 10 Ability poisonsting [Scorpid Worker Tail]s, head north to the cave you see on your map. Close to its entrance you should find Combat 15 Vile Familiars. Kill 12 of them (or until you have 6 Spell shadow curseoftounges [Vile Familiar Head]s if you're a Warlock).

When you're done, head back to The Den.

Growing strongerEdit

Turn in Horde 15 [4] Lazy Peons to IconSmall Orc MaleForeman Thazz'ril and get Horde 15 [4] Thazz'ril's Pick. Turn in Horde 15 [3] Galgar's Cactus Apple Surprise to IconSmall Orc MaleGalgar. Sell junk at the vendor near him. Turn in Horde 15 [3] Sting of the Scorpid to IconSmall Orc MaleGornek.

Visit your class trainer and get new skills.

Turn in Horde 15 [4] Vile Familiars to IconSmall Orc FemaleZureetha Fargaze. Accept Horde 15 [5] Burning Blade Medallion.


Head to Burning Blade Coven (the cave north of Valley of Trials). Fight your way inside and keep going until you reach a three-way intersection. First take the middle path. Go a few steps forward and you should see Inv pick 01 [Thazz'ril's Pick] glowing in the dark. Pick it up and go back to the intersection.

This time go on the right path (the one going to the north). When you reach the end of it, you'll find Combat 15 Yarrog Baneshadow. Kill him and loot Inv jewelry talisman 01 [Burning Blade Medallion].

Hearth back to The Den (right-click the Inv misc rune 01 [Hearthstone] in your backpack).

Going OutEdit

Sell junk. Visit IconSmall Orc FemaleZureetha Fargaze and turn in Horde 15 [5] Burning Blade Medallion. Accept Horde 15 [5] Report to Sen'jin Village.

Go to IconSmall Orc MaleForeman Thazz'ril and turn in Horde 15 [4] Thazz'ril's Pick. Continue on the road east until you leave the starting area.

Discovering DurotarEdit

Small DetourEdit

As soon as you leave Valley of Trials, you'll come to an intersection, with IconSmall Orc MaleUkor standing next to it. Talk to him and accept Horde 15 [5] A Peon's Burden.

Take the path going south-east for a quick visit to Sen'jin Village. When you arrive, turn in Horde 15 [5] Report to Sen'jin Village to IconSmall Troll MaleMaster Gadrin. Accept Horde 15 [7] Report to Orgnil from him. Also accept Horde 15 [7] A Solvent Spirit from IconSmall Troll MaleMaster Vornal.

You can use this opportunity to learn Herbalism, Alchemy if you want, or find IconSmall Troll MaleLau'Tiki[53.2, 81.5]
a bit to the south-west of Sen'jin Village and train Fishing.

The Road to Razor HillEdit

Head north-west from Sen'jin Village until you reach the road going north. Follow it towards Razor Hill.

If you are less than 2400 XP into level 5 (or 2100 if you're a Priest) start killing boars and scorpids on your way, until you reach that quota. You want to ding level 6 after you turn in quests in Razor Hill.

Once you arrive, turn in Horde 15 [7] Report to Orgnil to IconSmall Orc MaleOrgnil Soulscar. Don't take Horde 15 [11] Dark Storms yet, as you need to be much higher level to complete it. Head to the inn and turn in Horde 15 [5] A Peon's Burden at IconSmall Orc MaleInnkeeper Grosk. Make the inn your home and sell junk.

Unless you're a Mage, visit your class trainer to learn new skills. You can also learn Mining, Engineering, Blacksmithing and First Aid in Razor Hill.

When you're done, head to IconSmall Orc MaleGar'Thok and grab Horde 15 [7] Vanquish the Betrayers. Also, take the exit west from Razor Hill and climb the hill on your right to get to the guard tower IconSmall Orc MaleFurl Scornbrow is in and get Horde 15 [7] Carry Your Weight.


Leave Razor Hill on the south gate and head south-east to Tiragarde Keep.

Start killing your way to the main building, the one with a staircase in front. Kill Combat 15 Kul Tiras Sailors and Combat 15 Kul Tiras Marines for Horde 15 [7] Vanquish the Betrayers. Some of them will drop Inv fabric silk 01 [Canvas Scraps] that you need for Horde 15 [7] Carry Your Weight. Don't worry about meeting any quota yet.

Once you are inside the building, carefully fight your way up the stairs. Once you pass a porch, look to your left. There is a small slope going up into the room Combat 15 Lieutenant Benedict is in. Kill everyone in the room, except Benedict and his bodyguard. Once you're at full health and mana, brace yourself and attack. A healing potion could provide useful.

Once Combat 15 Lieutenant Benedict is dead, loot Inv misc key 06 [Benedict's Key] from him. Leave the room and go forward, then climb some stairs. You'll come to a terrace, with Benedict's Chest lying on the ground. Open it and receive Inv letter 15 [Aged Envelope]. Right-click the envelope to start Horde 15 [7] The Admiral's Orders.

Fight your way down the stairs and out of the building. Kill Kul Tiras guys until you finish Horde 15 [7] Vanquish the Betrayers and Horde 15 [7] Carry Your Weight.

When you're done, head back to Razor Hill.
