In the 10-20 level range, a few more zones become accessible. Overall Brachland
is considered the optimal zone for all Horde races to level in due to its large level range, high quantity of quests, and relative safety (as it is still considered Horde territory). Steinkrallengebirge
is also accessible once players reach level 16-20.Silberwald
is a viable (albeit weaker) alternative to Brachland
in this level range, although for Undead players it is the closest zone after Tirisfal
. Given that the zeppelin to Durotar
is nearby, Brachland
can be accessed just as easily.
The Barrens (Horde territory)Brachland
is a level 10-33 zone in central Kalimdor. Most of the quests will originate from Far Watch Post
, The Crossroads
, and Camp Taurajo
Far Watch PostRatchetThe CrossroadsCamp Taurajo
- Transit: Flight paths are located in The Crossroads, Ratchet, and Camp Taurajo.
- Terrain: The terrain of The Barrens can be described as a savanna plain with some small mountains throughout the zone. Overall, navigating and traversing The Barrens is relatively easy.
- Mob Density: Mobs tend to be spread out, although in some areas the mob density dramatically increases (Thorn Hill, The Forgotten Pools, etc). Avoid traveling past Camp Taurajo until closer to level 20.
