BRD quest run guide

Greetings,
This is my guide to BRD quest run at low level (suggested lvl range 54 =< lvl < 58) Horde side (but the Alliance side is probably preety much the same). I decided to create this guide because I used to run this many times (with many characters at many p-servers), and always there was few people who didn't know how to route it well. This run allows you to gain a lot of XP (which is not useful at lvl 60) and few pre-raid bis items around lvl 56 (so you don't have to clear whole BRD more times). Just because leveling guides usually tell something like "don't go to dungeons while leveling - it's waste of time (unless you have a good organised group)" - Yea...


Let's start with the team composition:
TANK - doesn't matter if druid or warrior - those are pretty much the same tanky at this level (druids might be even better because no warrior spec prot before 60).
HEAL - I suggest priest (because of stamina buff and because shadow priests may heal aswell (shamans are not very well single target healers and druids can't resurect if someting go wrong).
DPS1 - mage is a must (polly is a must; and if mage has imp. blizzard talent - the run is very smooth)
DPS2 - warlock (imp gives you more stamina, banish is a great CC here in BRD aswell)
DPS3 - rogue (someone have to steal Guzler key...)


Quest and where to pick 'em:
1. KILL ON SIGHT: Dark Iron Dwarves (pick at Kargath "wanted sign") - You are going to kill those dwarfes just while doing a single run.
2. The Last Element (pick at Kargath) - Same as Kill on Sight you and your party are going to kill enough elementals for the all 10/10 x5 drop.
3. The Rise of the Machines (require pre-quest from Burning Steppes [Joana's guide leads you to this prequest around lvl 53-54].
4. Ribbly Screwspigot (You can grab a pre-quest while doing Un'goro route) - the quest leads you to Grim Guzzler.
5. Lost Thunderbrew Recipe (You can grab a prequest while doing some Hinterland lvl 50 route [the prequest require lvl 50]) - same as before it's a Grim Guzzler quest.
6. The Heart of the Mountain (It it a vault quest - there's a big chance enought keys will drop during one run to get this item).
7. Dark Iron Legacy (you have to be dead to pick this quest [but it's shareable]) - probably the most important quest here to get a key that allows you to do lava runs later... (you turn in this quest above the arena).
8. Disharmony of Flame (this quest is done just outside of BRD - it's super good if anyone already done that before starting BRD quest run just because it allows you to get 2 more quests which are 9 and 10). If someone is missing it - You could make Kargath Your home - kill pyron - stone to Kargath - go to BRD with 2 more quests. Btw, You can kill overmaster pyron during Searing Gorge/Burning Steppes leveling route.
9. Disharmony of Fire - require Disharmony of Flame.
10. Commander Gor'shak - require Disharmony of Flame aswell. It's saving the princess 1st chain quest.
11. Attunement to the Core - MC attu quest

I recomend to skip bael'gar quest (A Taste of Flame) - the dwarfes packs are super strong.
While in Grim Guzzler you can also pick a love potion quest.
If you are lvl 56+ and you already done Grark Lorkrub you can pick next part (Operation: Death to Angerforge)

Here we are 9-12 quests so it's like 100k XP + XP for killing mobs (well organised run takes about 2,5 - 3,5 hours [depends of wipes counter]).


BRD map and route:

brddddd.jpg

I. If Disharmony of Flame is not complete yet: make Kargath Your home -> kill Pyron -> Stone to Kargath -> accept Disharmony of Fire and Commander Gor'shak -> go to BRD
II. if your Rogue doesn't have enought lockpick skill to open Gor'shak prision cell - kill Gerstahn [5] - open the prision cell - protect Gor'shak - talk to dwarf/go back to Gor'shak and accept What Is Going On?
III. go to the Ring of Law kill arena boss [6] - go above arena (spectators should be neutral now) - go to [7] and clear this place so you can turn in Dark Iron Legacy later
IV. Cross the bridge and head to vault [8] - clear the vault and check who's the key keeper (google his location) - go down and kill Fineous Darkvire [9] (he has Ironfel for Dark Iron Legacy) - keep going down and kill Lord Incendius for Disharmony of Fire.
V. Go back to [7] and turn in Dark Iron Legacy - cross the top of arena and press the whell (Shadowforge lock [12]) - go kill Angerforge [13]
VI. If you have a warlock you can try to kill Golem Lord Argelmach [14] (it's important to banish one elite - they hit like a truck), if you aren't strong enought just skip it and head to Grim Guzzler [15]
VII. Do both Grim Guzzler quests then steal a key - open the doors
VIII. Go down - kill Flamelash [16] - kill Panzor [17] (if he spawned...) - clear 7d event [18] (if you are a miner complete The Spectral Chalice, just make sure you have items before you enter BRD)
IX. Do Attunement to the Core [23] (you gonna need a warlock here aswell because 3 elementals at once might be too strong) - go back and open the vault (make sure you have at least 12 Relic Coffer Key and the Dark Keeper Key) - once vault is done die on purpose
X. Ressurect at BRD entrance - run outside and turn in Attunement to the Core - heartstone to Kargath and turn in the quests

That's pretty much it.
Thanks for reading.

I hated Blackrock dungeons because they are so dark and I think everything is covered in volcanic dust, but now I like them more. Mostly because these have to be the most intricate and complicated layouts in the game. All those little passages and rooms out of the way with bosses you haven't seen before. And the loot sells for decent gold as well. And there are also two quests for companions. And it's warm there too :3
