Welcome to ZAGGARAT ( Jetsai’s Zone-by-Zone Achievement Guide for Getting Across the Realm with Alliance Toons), a comprehensive zone by zone guide to wrapping up every achievement you need. You can view all instalments by clicking here. The printer and screen friendly guides can be downloaded at the bottom of this post.
Ghostlands, Eversong Woods and Tirisfal Glades move us deep into Horde Territory.
Scarlet Monastery, Scarlet Halls and Zul’Aman will provide some challenging content but if you’re on a PvE server then there’s little to do in these zones other than exploration and pet battles.
If you’re on a PvP server it’s a great opportunity to practice your Orcish. ‘Kagh! Grombolar’ (Deploy the yak!) and ‘Bin mog g’thazag cha thrAkk gezzno’ (It looks like your face caught on fire and someone tried to put it out with a fork) are some of my personal favourites. Just kidding, Blizzard has made it pretty difficult to communicate cross-faction and are constantly updating their algorithms to prevent it, so most of your time here will probably be spent avoiding guards, getting the spacing right in D a p Ee bb (Y o u Lo se) and reminding yourself that killing lowbies is mean and no yard stick of your PvP prowess.
Other things that may happen while you’re completing your achievements in these three zones:
- You may break some electronic equipment on your desk after the fourth time you try to fly in Ghostlands and realise you can’t.
- You may feel a bit bad when a fresh level 12 Rogue, with a glinty eye and a sorely misguided sense of how well stealth protects him, skulks up behind you and crucifies himself on your lightning shield.
- You may start to individually name each of the Maggots and Spirit Crabs you battle in the hunt for a rare Larva.
- You may fantasise about winning a championship spelling bee with the word Lordaeron, then realise it’s way past time to get a life.
(Editor’s note: I just wanted to say what an amazing feat Jemima has pulled off with these Zaggarat guides – if you find them as incredibly useful as I have already, please use the donate link below – proceeds will be forwarded onto Jem for her work)
