How do y'all plan on handling the Aldor and Scryers?


After getting to 110/120 in Netherstorm I have had to just declare a side in order to obtain the quests that originate inside of the Area 52 Inn. It seems that these will be neccessary in order to complete the zone and I am now 112/120 having started the chain.

So before you go to Netherstorm be sure to declare a side to save you from the trip back to Shattrath.

Also you will likely need someone to assist with 1-2 quests there: You, Robot! is one that wped me several times before calling in help and also the elite Ethereal captain that you will release from his energy field is quite a handful [especially since he duplictaes himself during the fight just as you think he'll die].

For fun i would suggest doing the Archmage Vargoth chain and the ghost town last as it is the best story in the zone and is always a good note to finish with good story telling before moving on.

Best of luck to all, on to Shadowmoon in 8 quests.

Nagrand mostly down, by the way: 64/75. This will be accounted for by:
-Second Altruis chain (requires some action in Shadowmoon Valley)

So tabling it for now and moving on to Blades Edge.


Don't think I ever went to Shadowmoon for this chain, although there is some portion of it in Terrokar Forest. I'm pretty sure I finished Nagrand without ever going into Shadowmoon at all.

http://www.wowhead.com/quest=9982 <--- Chain-starter for first Altruis chain (Alliance version). Chain includes a quest in Shattrath, that goes into Terokkar and the Zangarmarsh border.
http://www.wowhead.com/quest=10587 <--- Chain-starter for second Altruis chain (Aldor version). Two quests near Black Temple, then go to Altruis.

I see. Then I definitely finished Nagrand without doing any of that second chain.

Nagrand has a great many breadcrumb quests in it. Since they are required to make zones completable even if you somehow miss every single breadcrumb, if you actually do them all then you can skip a fair chunk of actual content and still hit the mark.

Also Nagrand is much tighter for Horde than Alliance.

Let's see if I can find five, then:
-The gnome girl at Nesingwary (I'm Saved)
-The Kurenai escort at Sunspring (Totem of Kar'dash)
-Obsidian Warbeads (for Consortium)
-Consortium gem monthly (credit for it appears to be volatile?)
-Netherstorm breadcrumb

I love Nagrand. Awesome zone. Annoying quest layout.

You don't have the DEHTA achievement; there should be a druid camp near where the guys are killing the deer, east of the lake that's east of Warsong Hold. :)

( By the way, I'm also Kollanie; this is my main. :D )
Blade's Edge down. It actually did take doing some of Ogri'la (including one of the 35-shard quests,) though not too much. Also have enough gold to buy epic flight; I'll probably do that before Netherstorm.

Kollanie,

I'm currently doing Shadowmoon and I did end up getting the breadcrumbs leading the the second Altruis chain you mentioned. I did that chain and the quests he gave did not contribute to the SMV achieve at all so most likely they will contribute to Nagrand as you said.

Shadowmoon done. I've always liked the story lines in this place so i took some time to do each chain on it's own without mixing around too much which added a bit of travel time, but I hadn't realised how much I missed the zone having skipped it on many alts since TBC days.

Teron Gorefiend the cleric killer, Gul'dan, Oronok and his sons, The Arrakoa Exile, the Netherwing drakes, Illidan's takeover of Karabor, Maeiv and Akama. Really such a rich environment and I'm not even a lore person but so far I'd have to say this is the best zone I've come through during the whole lore master experience. The place itself still even feels intimidating.

The only obstacles I ran into were needing an assist for Cyruk and Zuluhead the Whacked which both still pack quite a punch. Everything else has been softened enough that it is soloable with some tactics.

Moving on into Howling Fjord first because it's easier on the eyes then Borean Tundra and always seems to flow faster for me.

Just got Netherstorm's quest achieve last night. A couple things I've (so far) left undone:
-Manaforge Ara (if I had Northrend gear, I might have succeeded.)
-Nexus King Salhadaar (about as strong as an instance boss)
-Socrethar (need to go to Shattrath first.)

For those who aren't sure, Manaforge Ultris can be solo'd by most classes: when Dimensius summons the four channeller adds, ignore them! The only thing he'll do with four adds up is channel a ring of random shadow bursts that will expand and shrink predictably and rather slowly.

The lich at the end of Kirin'var can probably be LOS-cheesed, but I didn't need to. Just make sure to pull the two adds in the church first.

Having "Loremaster" next to your avatar's name is hardly worth the time invested without another worthwhile reward to go with it like a unique mount etc. Its a massive time sink for a title, when you can pay as little as 1000g for a title like shattered sun? I feel sorry for players who spend an exhaustive amount of time for a tabard that looks like you've been sick down the front of it. What a pathetic reward Blizzard why don't you show your players some more respect.


I'm doing Loremaster on this character too.

You got it wrong if you think that the point of doing Loremaster is to pursuit an achievement for the achievement or the tabard, or even the title.

The motivation, at least for me, is to play the game, to follow the story and all the content that was developed for the players. The reason I play WoW and no other game is because of its Lore, and what better way to explore the lore than seeking Loremaster.


You can get as much lore as you need by doing the main quest chains via wowhead. The majority of the quests are however go kill/collect 10 of x /deadend. For the purpose you describe loremaster is not necessary.
They could have came up with a better reward it wouldn't have been to hard for goodness sake. Title plus the tabard which has a unique use effect of somekind.. Bingo!

Just finished Outland, and it quite reminded me of why I don't like Shadowmoon. It's very spread out and has quests that seem to go to all corners of Azeroth. Netherwing gives me a reason to go back later: nether drakes are cool.

On to Northrend... and no wonder the Alliance often seems to be struggling. "No, mister draenei guy, we won't add your two regiments to our troops, even though they'd be useful; human troops are hicks and would pro'ly just act like superstitious racists." Paraphrase from General Arlos. :<

I probably had done 2/3 - 3/4 of the old world quests and about half of both Outland and Northrend, reaching 80 the day before Cata launched and reset all of Azeroth.

Now I am not sure what I was thinking, but for whatever reason I decided to go after Loremaster. Seeing how most of the old world quests had be redone was quite interesting, the only place I have had a problem with finding quests was Feralas. Somehow I ran out of quests withtwo to go and no breadcrumbs. I stumbled across a drop that led to one more and one of those 'escort me to safety' robots was still lurking in the bank, whew.

Now just Terokkar and Netherstorm to go to finish the process.

I did this with my more recent alts. I didn't just do all of EK/Kali before hitting Outland, I did every starter zone, moved on to the 10-20 zones, then the 20-25 zones, etc. In doing Outland I wouldn't move on to the next zone until I completed the one I was in, which meant I completed Nagrand before setting foot in Blade's Edge, Netherstorm or Shadowmoon. There were *just* enough quests to make it happen.

I was 63 when I hit Outland, 76 when I hit Northrend and I dinged 85 in Hyjal.

Welcome back, wasn't sure if you were still working on this. Finally got to 3k quests today after months of off and on questing, anyone who starts this with a fresh character should get Seeker by the time you hit Shoazar Basin or right before if you do all quests in each zone, including the 4-5 extra over the required amount most zones call for.

Did the wrathgate quest for the first time on any of my toons, now I see why everyone liked it. Good way to end that huge white never ending field of ice that is Dragonblight.

btw: grats on your E.K. and Kalimdor completions.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I wanted to add my input. I wasn't aware of this challenge but I started my own in August 2011 that I just recently completed. I took this a step further and turned off experience gain at every level block. So for example I shut it off at level 10 then completed all the starting zones, then turned exp back on and leveled to the next milestone like level 15 and did westfall, bloodmyst etc. I did this all the way to 85 finishing my last quest in twilight highlands with 1000 exp to 85 and turned it back on so I dinged 85 at the same time as finished Loremaster.

It was a great time that extended my interest in wow to close to the release of MoP. For the last 2 months I'm attempting to do the same as above but without dying and I intend to delete my character no matter what level and progress into loremaster if I die
