Home to the Wildhammer Dwarves (Gryphon Trainers) and many, many trolls! Seradane is also a spawn point for one of the world raid green dragons.
The flight path for Alliance is at Aerie Peak.
The flight path for Horde is Revantusk Village.
Revantusk Village has a ridiculous amount of simple grinding quests and every level 46-50 Horde should check them out for quite a bit of gold and nice items, not to mention the easy exp.
Is it possible to climb the hills above revantusk?
A unique item called the sacred mallet is found here, and at some point in your WoW life, you’re going to want to get it. It is used to create the mallet of Zul'Farrak, which, in turn is used to summon a boss in Zul'Farrak. The quest associated with this boss gives the carrot on a stick (increases mount speed 3%). This trinket is likely to stay in your inventory for the rest of the game, unless the burning crusade has changed that.
So... there are some pretty confusing posts, but the short of it is this: You kill a guy (not in an instance) to get the mallet. Look at the sacred mallet page (below) for where it is, and how hard it’s going to be. You go somewhere else nearby (also not in an instance) and use the mallet to create a new mallet (the mallet of Zul’Farrak). That's the one you carry into Zul'Farrak instance. When the mallet of Zul’Farrak is used at a gong in the Zul’Farrak instance, you summon Zahz’rilla, who you have to kill to complete the quest Gahz’rilla, which gives you the carrot on a stick trinket.
Of course, to get the actual quest, you'll need to start the quest chain first.
Step 1 - visit Ironforge, talk to Clockmort Spannerspan in Tinker Town Area. He'll give you the quest "The Brassboltz Brothers"
Step 2 - Go to Shimmering Flats in Thousand Needles and talk to Wizzle Brassbolts. That'll complete the first part, and start the quest Gahz'Rilla, that rewards you with the carrot on a stick.
Step 3 - Get the sacred mallet
Step 4 - Use the sacred Mallet and turn in into the Mallet of Zul'Farrak
Step 5 - Do the instance Zul'Farrak, summon Gahz'Rilla, kill 'im, return quest, do your happy dance.

Does anyone know what the box under the waterfall at 81, 46 is for?
What's the fastest way to the Revantusk Village?
Just for the horde -
FP is at Raventusk village in the southwest (77,79)
He is located at the end of the dock!
Ok what is the area to the north for called Seradane?
For those who can't find the path to Hinterlands, there's a path between the mountains behind Durnholde Keep to the east of Tarren Mill.
For horde players, once you reach raventusk village, and got there by accident like me, the path back up the mountains is at 76, 61
The easy path to The Hinterlands for Horde....
At the time of this posting taking this route avoided having to pass right by the Alliance outpost as well as any high level mobs. I wrote down detailed specifics of my journey but to summarize go to Thandol Span, jump in the water and swim towards Hinterlands :)
Detailed version is as follows:
* Fly to Arathi Highlands Hammerfall.
* Head towards Thandol Span before you reach it you will see a bridge to the left, crossing it you will end up around 48, 88.
* Continue past the dark iron bombardiers (dwarf npcs) and you will see a path leading down to the water.
* Swim east to the Forbidding Sea, hug the zone side if you go too far out you will get fatigued.
* Around 89, 77 you can walk back up on land for a bit, there is a farm there but it appears to be a half finished area and is only populated with a level 15 dwarven farmer.
* After you pass the farm, head back into the water now and you will be swimming north now towards The Hinterlands (again hug the wall side to avoid fatigue).
* You will arrive at the south end of The Hinterlands right near the horde outpost of Revantusk Village.
Despite that the area is a level 45-50 area, I came here at level 40 and it got me to 44. Just stick close to Aeire Peak. There are level 41-42 wolves just outside Aeire Peak.
There are also some great quests here. They're not very hard but will get you tons of XP.
There's a path from Western Plaguelands to The Hinterlands: near the Darrowmere lake. The entrance is at (65,86)
As of patch 2.3, all of the mobs in Jintha'Alor are no longer elite, so the quests that involve going there can be done solo, since they are no longer considered group quests.
For any hordes traveling to the hinterlands from Tarren Mill, theres a lvl 55-65 dwarf guard on the road and hes hostile. So if you want to avoid dying I advise traveling on the grass :<
For horde going to the hinterlands: don't forget to pick up the following quests to maximize your questing efficiency.
Lines of Communication;
Sprinkle's Secret Ingredient;
Whiskey Slim's Lost Grog;
Testing The Vessel;
The Ancient Egg;
I'm sure there's more, but this is all I've managed to accrue before making my first - fourth, after three alts - journey there.
What is the area just behind Seradane the circle of rocks around a dragonskull and one is glowing blue. This one of blizzards many half finished quests/raids/instances/storylines?
Any one know what is the circle of stone and the skeletal dragon's head in 69.4, 10.1
This is a beautiful zone, terrific Mithril mining if you stick to the edges of the map (but avoid Seradane), fun, easy, rewarding quests for levels 43-50 both Alliance and Horde. Great zone! :)
This is a great area for mining mithril and even some small amounts of thorium ^^. And it looks gorgeous too :) I leveled up from 40 to 45 in no time in this area, and the quest rewards are awsome as well.
Good hunt >.<
No bullet vendors for the Horde, just Arrows.
It is also possible to reach the Hinterlands from Western Plaguelands:
If you make your way north along the banks of the river east of Southshore, you'll find yourself meandering out of Hillsbrad, through the Alterac Mountains, to where the river eventually feeds into Darrowmere Lake. Head east along the south shore of the lake to 65,86 (or approximately halfway between the spur jutting north into the lake and the bridge leading out to Scholomance). This is the mouth of Plaguemist Ravine, which leads north into the Hinterlands.
Mining - There is alot of mithril here, few iron, gold, truesilver and even small thorium ores too. Like most ore spots i persume, you can find the them around hills, the mountains and in caves.
Anyone know what's in the little mountained-off area east of Seradane? I remember swimming up the coast for, oh, probably half an hour trying to find a way up there. Is it just one of those little areas, like the far west of Tirisfal Glades or the "airport" in Dun Morogh, that Blizzard never got around to developing, or something? I look forward to being able to explore such areas ^_^
The trolls here drop Wildvine, which is a fairly rare and valuable mat in my server (Thunderlord.) They are selling for about 1.2g per vine in the ah, or 12g per 10 wildvine. The drop rate is fairly low though, no more than one for 20 kills. I found four doing all the troll quests in the Hinterlands (alliance).
For you guys who, just like me, couldn't find an innkeeper (even though you made a tracking on the mini-map): the innkeeper is actually deep inside the Wildhammer Keep!
Now you don't have to worry anymore, your beloved hearthstone will still be able to help you find the way home when you're tired little gnum feets can't carry you any longer.
"While seeking a way to remove Dar'Khan's enchanted collars from around his neck (which trapped him in humanoid form) and Anveena's, Kalec travelled to the Hinterlands - and in the process, battling the forces of both the Scourge and the Forsaken Baron Valimar Mordis - and it was there that he discovered that Anveena possessed great power, demonstrated by saving him from a potentially fatal fall from the cliffs below the Baron's castle. As she was trying to slow Kalec's fall, Anveena was captured by Dar'Khan, and taken to Quel'Thalas."
Just a little something I picked up while reading about Kalecgos, tells you about past events here.
Horde quests in Hinterlands:
KILL EVERYTHING THAT LIVES!
You have a Quest to kill every single creature: Wolves, Gryphons, 3 types of trolls, Owlbeasts, Turtles, Blood Elves, etc.
Its insane. The Horde Quests in Hinterlands are too blood thirsty!
where do the most of the quests starts for alliance here? i know that some of them are starting in Aerie Peak, but where are more?
Awesome leveling zone for horde characters. I did STV from 36 to around lvl 45, then did some quests in Swamp of Sorrows, wich really gives a nice amount of quests wich are quite easy to do. After that I headed to Dustwallow Marsh, they also have greats quests there, and really easy to do since there are two flightpaths to travel between, making it a fast lvl or 2. Only headed to Hinterlands at lvl48, and was able to fly past lvl49 and 50, 60% into lvl50 already, and I still have like 5 quests to do here, really an awesome zone. After hinterlands, Ungoro, Ferelas, and Ashenvale are good zones to try aswell for lvl50-55.
Great place for alliance to lvl at. About 12 quests to complete and all quests are do-able from lvl 47+
what lvl do i need to fish here
A thing worth mentioning about the horde quests in their village. There are very few chains (i myself got none, but probably just missed it). So, pick up ALL quests, do you thing, come back and you're done. Very simple.
also to note is that the model for all male forest trolls has changed making them huskier and making their tusks different.
Edit: according to wowwiki all male forest trolls use a smaller version of the Zul`Aman trolls
Great horde quests btw.
the trinket is awesome
and the one where you go to the alliance camp is definitely the best.
Loved it when they shouted "Were under attack" lol
for every leatherworker out there: go to the coast just north of raventusk village and skin turtles. the turtle scale rate is amazing, practically 100% (or maybe i was very lucky?). also that's where you need to go to get Pupellyverbos Port, for Whiskey Slim's Lost Grog (
Jintha'Alor has plenty of Purple Lotus and is great for levelling Herbalism from 210-235, then you can go do laps around the Hinterlands to level it up even more!
For both horde and alliance there is infact a forge for both. Just took me awhile to find it. For other confused alliance, just go up the hill left of the High Thane and go into that building. There is a forge and a anvil for you.
I spent an hour on my mount and was finally able to get on top of the mountains in the uncharted area! I went all the way around the rim, and it was a valley with DEAD vertical cliffs. There is absolutely NOTHING in the valley... not even green coloring for the valley floor. I decided that if I could get to the top on mount, it would be a sinch with a wisp... so I jumped in (and died, of course). I then spent the next 2 hours trying to get back to where my body was, so I could resurrect. NO DICE! I could not get up there without a mount.
Moral of the story is, don't waste your time trying to get there... there's nothing to see. Curiosity killed this cat.
Wow that riding crop thingy is really a piece of !@#$! i meen: "requirement: lv 69. (does not work for players above lv 70". See the problem? 69+. max 70 lol what a load of junk
The riding crop change was done by Blizzard since they wanted to remove mount speed bosst itemsat level 80. This change applies to the Riding Crop, Carrot on a Stick, Enchant gloves - riding, and mithril spurs.
Second off, why are we discussing the riding crop on the Hinterlands page?
Here's a tough one for you... there's a picnic basket on the northern island, off the west coast. Activating it will spawn 3 Hungry Trolls. Any ideas about it? Is it a quest?
Click this map to get a pathway to the Hinterlands
If you're thinking what kind of dwarven city has not an anvil, it is placed at 10, 48; by the path to flight point, Aerie Peak.
As of patch 3.2, several adjustments have been made to the whole zone to make questing easier:
- more spawns for some npcs (example: Savage Owlbeast)
- different skin for some npcs to make them more identifiable (example: Savage Owlbeast, Silvermane Stalker)
- Reduced numbers for quest objectives
- adjustments to npc level (example: Saltwater Snapjaw)
I bet there will be an instance entrance by the upper right corner of the map. I tried several ways to reach there but mountains blocked me. I think we will be able to enter there when blizz let us to fly with expansion.
I've heard there is a hidden Gnome house somewhere in this zone. Is this true, and if so where is it?
As Horde, I couldn't get any quests in Revantusk Village until I was Level 44.
I cant believe I never noticed this but, in seradane there is a giant tree! if u want to see it from a high up view go from Lights Hope Chapel to Ironforge on the FP.. quite an amazing tree indeed.
It's also worth (or not) mentioning that the trolls in Revantusk village have some of the most epic drummers in all of Azeroth! Just go to 79,79 (or the cooking trainer if you're without coords) and enjoy the drummy goodness!
How about LW in there?
they should move revantusk village more inland. after all, most other zones have been made over, to make way for this cataclysm. the whole coastline should be flooded.
The new mountain pass between Arathi and Hinterlands has the awesome music from
Caverns of Time: The Black Morass
, oddly enough.
For those that come here at 30 or so, watch out for the level 35 gryphons while running to Revantusk Village as you will mostly be dazed by them.
I was there looking for purple lotus and could not find any anywhere. If any body knows where any is please let me know.
If you run out of quests (I got to 20/25), after completing "In Defense of Quel'danil", leave and come back to the lodge, it will phase from dreadstalkers to a dwarf shaman woman in the lodge offering "the Eye of Shadra" and "Can't make an omelette without...".
I also found a quest hub just north of Jintha'alor without having a quest sending me there,
and when flying back from Ironforge to Aerie Peak I found another quest being offered by the Gryphon Master inside the hill, that wasn't offered when I first visited Aerie Peak.
what are the horde and alliance quests that lead here?
questing through Jintha'Alor is a PITA. i hit level 36 and ghosted. i still had more quests to do but it's so boring and redundant. quest giver only gives you 3-4 quests at a time so you have accept the quests, use the QG to get to the top, kill the necessary mobs/collect items, go back down the mountain, turn in the quests, accept the new quests, go back up the mountain, fight the respawnd mobs you just beat, then fight the mobs necessary for the quest. you do this AT LEAST 3 times. idk how many it really is because i said screw this. like i said, PITA.
Some Cata weirdness - the skull on the hilltop in Seradane is still there - but AFAICT the happyface standing stones are not (maybe they moved them idk), and neither are the elite green dragons. Bizarre.
Damn, I just love this zone.
too bad now there isnt any dragon in serenade, it ruins all the lore of the place

I love questing in the Hinterlands! After hearing the word hinterland used in a speech, I decided to look up. For anyone interested, Hinterland means:
- Land inland from a coastal area or river.
- A remote region or backcountry.
I like to think of it as... The land behind Revantusk Village :P
If you go out of Quel lodge, towards and past hut and then up in and into hills there are a couple of gnome vendors you can empty your bags with. They seem to be closest vendors for all the quests out of there. They Sell Eng plans for Mech Dragonkin as well.
Alliance can stay out of the research area at low levels. I killed to 2 guards to look inside, but some something inside shoots 20K damage. My 3K character was one shot 3 times trying to resurrect my way back out.
While questing in The Hinterlands don't forget to pick up

You can use the following macro to determine if you've completed the The Hinterlands portions of these quests...

The entrance from Hillsbrad Foothills begins just north of Durnholde Keep, right where the word "Keep" is on the map.
Rare mobs of Hinterlands
Welcome to the Hitlerlands, where many Armani tribes live.
One of my favourite zones in the game. Unlike a lot of other areas, the Hinterlands didn't change much during the Shattering. Beyond having new quests added, it retained the same landscape and even the same music from the original game. Few other zones in WoW have the same, continuous track from vanilla playing nowadays, for example. And yet, the nostalgic "Forest" music from vanilla WoW plays almost everywhere in this zone.
As a roleplayer, I love everything about the Hinterlands, from how cozy Aerie Peak is to how the forests are so peaceful at night, to how mysterious Seradane is now that its utterly empty. All of that combined with the nostalgic atmosphere of the zone makes this area a gem that offers a window into the WoW of years past.
