It was the site of many battles during the Second War, and was a key point for the Alliance to push the Horde back to the Blasted Lands. Later, during the War of the Dwarves, the Wildhammer Clan abandoned Grim Batol, leaving it to go to Aerie Peak. Grim Batol was overtaken by Orcs, then by the Red Dragons of Alexstraza. Now, the Wetlands themselves are home to the Dragonmaw Clan, renegades of the Orcs, and the Gnolls. Also, many of the primordial oozes have come to life. The Wetlands are basically a dark, damp marsh. Much like Dustwallow Marsh, only there aren't so many trees. You can see the sky! There is lots of shallow water, so you Gnomes out there will have to swim a lot. Places of Interest: Grim Batol is obviously an interesting place. In its current stage, it is an unfinished instance that will be released soon. Obviously, it will have many Red Dragons in it, and maybe a few surviving Orcs. Dun Modr was a Dwarven town on the southern side of the Thandol Span. When the Dark Iron Dwarves invaded and killed or drove out the Bronzebeard Dwarves living within Dun Modr, they sent Longbraid and his company to take down the Dark Irons. But outnumbered and outgunner, Longbraid and his men await reinforcements from Menethil Harbor or Ironforge. [INDENT]- Menethil Harbor (Alliance): This is a full-fledged town, with a General and Trade Goods vendors, a flight master, and an Inn. No trainers. Level 42-43 Guards and Level 20 Guards on the pier. [/INDENT] Graveyards: There is only 1 graveyard in the Wetlands, and it lies just south of the center of the Wetlands. PvP Listing: Contested Territory Minerals: Herbs: [CLASS=Headline]2. <a id = "section2">GENERAL QUEST GUIDE</a>[/CLASS] From the South...: Assuming your coming from Loch Modan, which is where most people are, then head past the passageway of Dun Algaz. Be sure to finish the Gauntlet quest, which involves killing the Dragonmaw Orcs on the way down the pass. Once you reach the beaten road, continue on that. Keep following it until you see a Dwarf with a quest. Grab that quest and continue, but be sure to check with that Goblin merchant on the way to Menethil Harbor. Menethil Harbor: This is probably the first time you've seen a harbor or pier in World of Warcraft. There are two working boats; the one farthest out takes you to Theramore Isle, while the one on the right side takes you to Darkshore. They go on round trips, so if its not there, wait a couple of minutes for it to arrive. Now, turn in the two quests you have and walk around, gathering all the quests you can and remembering which ones have silver points over their heads. Head east, doing the quests that you have. Then, head north towards Ironbeard's Tomb. It lies between Menethil Harbor and Dun Modr. Also, there is an abandoned home in the northwestern part of the Wetlands. Inside are two Gnome engineers, willing to buy and sell. The quests you should have done include the Murloc slaying quest, the one for finding the statuette, and the Young Crocolisks one. The statuette is after the Murloc killing. Also, you should have found Sida's Bag and now, head to the excavation site. Raptor Excavations: The site is entirely overrun with raptors, save the cave in the far back. Climb up the little ramp on the side, over the bridge, and into the cave. Give the Dwarf her letter, and grab the other two quests. Find the 4 stones and then head outside and slightly west to kill some raptors. Return to the cave, giving the stones back to the Dwarf. Finally, finish the rest of the raptor slaying quests then pick your reward. Now it's time to find the Greenwarden. The Greenwarden: The Greenwarden was, last time I checked, a Darnassus reputation giver. If this was changed in a recent patch, please let me know. Now, do all his quests now; it'll save a lot of travelling time. There should be 3 of them, one after another. Simple as that, then head to the orc encampment just to the west. Orcs of the Dragonmaw Clan: Slay the vile Orcs, take 8 of their War Banners, and return to Menethil. Now, time to burn those catapults. Return to the camp and keep close to the cliff on the inside of the camp. Find the catapults and note the guards. There should be around 5, with most of them being the Shadow Mages. Take them all out, by pulling them carefully and slaying them one at a time. Then, rush in, burn the catapult, rush out, and get a group ready: Nek'rosh is no pushover. He has two guards and is an Elite Orc himself, so you'll need the help. Clear the area around him first before fighting him. Once you slay him, bring his head back to the port for your reward. One final stop, and you'll be done. The Dark of Dun Modr: Dun Modr has about 4 Elite quests, each of them easily doable with a strong party. Many of those quests are single ones, but the Thandol Span one is a small string. First, slay the ones within Dun Modr to finish that easy quest. Next, find the dead Dwarfs body within the Thandol Span. Go down one of the stairways and jump down. Once you grab the letter, watch out for the roaming guards. There are two more. Go find Balgaras, who can either span in Dun Modr or out in the hills to the southeast. He is very tough and will require either an exceptionally strong group or the patience of a very strong group. Either way, slay the Dwarves around him and then him, then grab his ear and return to Longbraid. You'll get a quest to kill Kam Deepfury within the Stockades from one of the men. Now, one final quest that you can do. Head to the Thandol Span. Jump off and look underwater for a dead Dwarf. There's a letter that's just out of reach of his bony arms. Grab it and warp or swim west til you reach the beach. You must be level 35 or higher to do this. Congratulations! For the most part, the Wetlands has been cleared! You're done with this joint until you find the need to venture into Grim Batol. Quest Pages: In the Wetlands, I've put the quests under 3 different categories. Menethil Harbor and Western Wetlands Dun Modr and Central Wetlands Dun Algaz and Southern Wetlands Where do I go next? Well, at this stage, you have many choices. There are more, but these are the ones I feel that are best. -Go to Duskwood. The dark forest of Duskwood leaves a great impression on players about how badly the Alliance is faring in their war against evil and the Horde (not that the Horde are evil, just that they're two seperate enemies :D) -Go to Ashenvale. Granted, some of the quests there are a bit low level, but some are a bit higher. Your choice. -Go to the Stonetalon Mountains. Same as Ashenvale, as you will probably pass it on your way there. -Go to Arathi Highlands. At your stage, it may be a bit too tough for you, but if you levelled a lot during your battles in the Wetlands, you may squeeze into the category. Check out the monsters, grab the flight path at Refuge Pointe, then decide. That's all for the General Quest Guide of the Wetlands. Refer to each of the specific quest pages for more detailed information. [CLASS=Headline]3. <a id = "section3">NPC List</a>[/CLASS] Under construction! Please check back later!
