Wrath 101: Getting from Borean Tundra to Howling Fjord and vice versa

Matt Low

One of the questions frequently asked is which zone will you be leveling in first? A large majority of players will pick Borean Tundra or Howling Fjord.

Why not both?

Not to worry, there's a far easier way of getting from the Tundra to the Fjord and back again. You don't necessarily have to go back to your capital city zones and then transfer to a different zeppelin or boat. Our new walrusian friends the Tuskarr will be supplying the main modes of transportation with really big turtles. Those Goblin turtle mounts are no match for these behemoths.

These carrot powered turtles will shuttle players from Borean Tundra to Dragonblight where they can then hop off and switch turtles in order to resume their journey to Howling Fjord. Don't worry, trips are free.

Note that all of the Tuskarr ports have flight paths for both factions for easy access to and from.

Unu'pe (Map coordinates: 77, 50 - Borean Tundra to Dragonblight) - This is the Tuskarr settlement in Borean Tundra. Beginning players will find that they may not be able to reach it immediately. The trek to Unu'pe is far for both Alliance and Horde players. The shot above is centered on the neutral flight path. On the right of the shot, you can see a sea turtle waiting for passengers for the trip to Dragonblight.

Let's call him Donatello.

Moa'ki Harbor (Map coordinates 48, 76 - Dragonblight to Borean Tundra or Howling Fjord) – This is the only stop between Unu'pe and Kamagua. There's Donatello waiting to ferry passengers back to Borean Tundra. On the left side is the platform to Kamagua which is in Howling Fjord. Be sure to grab the flight path here!

Kamagua (Map coordinates 25, 57 - Howling Fjord to Dragonblight) – Here's the Kamagua side of the world. Leonardo hasn't quite arrived yet. Kamagua is accessible by a gondola located at the Ancient Lift located along the south western part of the map.

You didn't really think there were only two turtles did you? Raphael has been spotted in drydock waiting to give either turtle a rest.

Anyone that has seen Michelangelo is encouraged to comment and post his whereabouts. Unfortunately, no one know where he is at. Other than that, have fun surfing the seas on the back of turtles! I suspect players will be doing quite a bit of back and forth hopping between zones!

Arthas awaits and so do your questions. Find the answers you've been looking for that will help you with your journey into Northrend and to level 80 with Wrath 101.
