Arathi Highlands Edit

From the Wetlands, east of all the rivers, there's a fork with a road going north, follow that road and pass the bridge to reach the Arathi Highlands.

From the Hillsbrad Foothills, Horde players can just follow the path east and pass through the gates of the wall. However, this is not so simple for Alliance players as the gate is guarded by level 90 Horde soldiers. Alliance players are advised to go to the southeastern tip, and swim to the Arathi Highlands.

From the Hinterlands, you can simply follow the roads west, then southwest into the Arathi Highlands.

Badlands Edit

The Badlands can only be reached on 3 methods, for both the Alliance and Horde.

From Loch Modan, go south from the lake in the middle of the zone, there will be a small ridge bridging the gap, this is more dangerous for Horde as passages into Loch Modan are guarded by Alliance soldiers.

From the Searing Gorge, take the road east.

From the Eastern Plaguelands, there will be a goblin at Light's Hope Chapel giving you a quest to the Badlands if you are a high enough level, this is a one-timer, but great for Horde players from either the Undercity or Silvermoon.

Blasted Lands Edit

From the Swamp of Sorrows, simply follow the road into the southern part of the swamp, then take the road south at the middle of the zone.

From Stranglethorn, you need to travel via Duskwood and Deadwind Pass.

Players level 58 and higher can take a portal from any capital city to the Dark Portal.

Horde players under level 58 can try to get a mage to teleport them to Stonard, and then take the road west and take a left turn.

From Silithus, the Cenarion Enclave will have a quest towards the Blasted Lands, and will allow you to use the portal one of the mages made in the building at the Cenarion Enclave.

Burning Steppes Edit

From the Redridge Mountains, you can take the road north of Lakeshire through the passage.

From the Swamp of Sorrows, you can take the road north out of Bogpaddle, a goblin town in the northeast corner of the zone. That road will go straight to the Burning Steppes from the swamp through Redridge.
