World of Warcraft Classic is available now, which means that Horde and Alliance players are beginning select the best WoW classes to power through starting zones and level up. One of the staples of the vanilla WoW experience is the hardships of travel and few starting races understand that pain more than the Alliance's Night Elves.
In World of Warcraft, Night Elves start on an island called Teldrassil that is a long way from the heart of the Alliance in the Eastern Kingdoms. Some players may want to make the long trek to Stormwind to meet up with friends, or just explore the capital city, before they've done much leveling and this can be a daunting task. The journey is definitely possible, players just need to have planned ahead and be ready for everything they'll encounter along the way... Which is inevitably going to get them killed at least a few times.
Keep in mind that low level players making their way to Stormwind are inevitably going to run into some trouble. If you're playing on a PvP server, things can be even worse in theory. Even on Normal WoW Classic realms though, there will be some high level mobs along the way. Be way of your surroundings throughout the journey and avoid fights with skull mobs whenever possible. Nobody needs those repair bills right now.
Also, it's very important to pick up every flight path that you pass along the way. Otherwise you'll be making similar runs in the future.
Portal Out Of Darnassus
To start the journey, head to the portal and travel from Darnassus to the docks. Once at the docks, players need to hitch a ride to Auberdine. Travel can be arranged from the port by either gryphon master or the boat. Either option will get you where you need to go.
Boat To Menethil Harbor
After arriving in Auberdine, players should take the boat from Long Wash to Menethil Harbor.
Run To Loch Modan
This is where things get messy. Players need to head off on foot from Menethil to Loch Modan. This is a super deadly stroll through the Wetlands that will require a lot of corpse running for most players. Take off all of your gear to save on the repair bill and dodge enemies as often as possible.
Keep in mind that dying during this portion of the run is basiccaly unavoidable if you are under level 25. The journey is definitely possible at lower levels, but you'll need to have a lot of patience and be ready to do a lot of corpse running.
Run To Dun Morogh and Ironforge
This part isn't nearly as bad. There are still some high level mobs to dodge, but they are easily avoidable. The trek is almost over. Keep your head down and don't stop until you hit Ironforge.
Visit the Deeprun Tram in Tinker Town for the last leg of the journey.
That's all there is to it! It's definitely a bit of a painful process, but, hey, isn't that what returning to WoW Classic is all about?
