Classes, skills, and so forth.
When you begin the game, you may select from one of four classes.
|Warriors are the melee-centered class. These characters are as tough as nails and masters of weaponry and tactics. The special abilities of the warrior are naturally combat-oriented.||12||10||9||9||Heroic Strike|
|At home in the shadows and skilled at disappearing from sight, the Rogues of Azeroth are most comfortable when acting in the background. Twisting events to their favor, striking only when advantage is greatest: this is where a Rogue excels.||10||9||9||12||Cruelty|
|Priests lead the many faiths spread throughout the disparate lands of the world of Azeroth. In Kalimdor, Night Elf Priestesses revere the moon goddess Elune, while Dwarven priests in Khaz Modan deliver the message of the Light to their people.||9||12||10||9||Mark of the Wild|
|The Mages of Warcraft once centered their powers within the mageocracy of Dalaran. After that kingdom's destruction by the Burning Legion the arcane arts spread to the far corners of the world.||9||9||12||10||Lash of Pain|
- Strength: Increases physical damage.
- Stamina: Increases Health.

To attack a monster, run into it on the screen. You will then be taken to the attack screen:
The upper left-hand corner shows the same information as when you are not fighting:
- your current level
- your current/maximum Health
- your current/maximum Energy
The upper right-hand corner displays similar information for the monster you're attacking:

- its current/maximum Health
- its current Energy
In the bottom left-hand corner, you have five options:
- Attack, using whatever weapon you may have wielded.
- Use a skill.
- Cast a spell.
- Use an item.
- Attempt to escape.
Attacking is turn-based.
If you are killed, you are sent to the nearest restore point:
If you defeat the monster, you see four new items on the screen:
- On the left, you see:
- your current level
- how much XP the monster was worth
- how many XP you need to gain a level
- how many talent points you have
- a button to continue
- In the middle are things the monster dropped.
- On the right is your backpack.
- At the bottom is a graphical representation of your current XP versus the max for that level.
A yellow exclamation mark above an NPC's head indicates a quest.
A grey question mark indicates you have taken, but not completed, the quest.
A yellow question mark indicates that the quest is complete.
You need to get a teleportation rune so Lekon the Mage can open a portal.
Go to the goblin salesman and buy 2 goblin dynamites. Go back to the mine's entrance and use one of the dynamites.
You will encounter 5 kobold miners, then Fagnus the Mage.
When he's dead, use the second dynamite on the chest, and get a Large Candlestick, a mace with 5-7 damage and requiring level 8 to equip.
Return to Lekon. He will create a portal. Entering the portal will end your game, so be sure to save your game a lot before you enter.
Stranglethorn Vale (STV)
To get here, go to the far right, and step into the transporter.
Talk to Short John Mithril about entering the games, then fight Men'rok. As a reward, you get the weapon Destiny.
- Men'rok (drops Destiny, sword, level 10, +7 str, 3-6 damage)
- Cathy the Human Mage (drops Lavishly Jeveled Ring, ring, level 11, +7 int)
- Beardon the Dwarf Priest (drops Devout Mantle, shoulder, level 12, 64 armor, +21 int)
- Felva the Undead Rogue (drops Perdition's Blade, dagger, level 12, 3-5 damage, +17 agi)
- Archaic the Gnome Warlock (drops Earthcalm Orb, offhand, level 20, 5 armor, +10 int)
- Littlefoot the Tauren Shaman (drops Cold of Elements, head, level 13, 297 armor, +13 sta)
- Azzima the Troll Hunter (drops Beaststalker's Gloves, hands, level 14, 218 armor, +15 sta)
- Sheila the Night Elf Druid (drops Wildheart Belt, waist, level 14, 93 armor, +17 int)
- Helm the Human Paladin (drops Ashkandi, the Greatsword, sword, level 20, 9-13 damage, +160 str)
Defeating Helm the Human Paladin will also allow to purchase level 20 weapons(10-15 sword with +45 sta, 6-11 dagger with +45 agi, 6-11 staff with +45 int, and 2929 armor shield with +23 sta).
It's like the arena, but you have to defeat the high priests:
- Jeklik the bat,
- Venoxis the snake,
- Mar'li the spider,
- Thekal the tiger, and
- Arlokk the panther.
Hakkar and Gahz'ranka are exceptions (but they also defeatable).
Falthir is a troll, who is in a cage far right in Zul'Gurub. Release him with a stick of dynamite.
After his release, he will be in STV, two screens to the right of the Arena, with his brother Zunkil.
Zunkil asks you to go back to Zul'Gurub and slay Hakkar the Soulflayer.
Felva the Rogue
You must meet her three times before she'll talk to you.
- She will be one screen to the right of Falthir the freed troll(screen with ruins on hill).
- She will be the first screen in Zul'Gurub. Enter from the right side to see her.
- She will be two screens to the right of Falthir(screen with trees below, one screen before entrance to Zul'Gurub).
Note: You can still see her if you've killed the rogue in the arena.
On the third time that she spots you she talks to you, She says: She's seen you in the arena and you're really good. She wants you to kill a goblin - the one that goes on and on about a really big dragon in Azeroth. At this point she teaches you the Ambush skill - you don't actually have to bother with the rest of it.
Go back to where Jeklok is in STV. Equip a dagger, and talk to him, you'll enter a battle with him, simply Cold Blood + Ambush him and he drops a necklace that's got 9 Agility on it and requires level 12 to equip. If you walk to the second screen right of the Troll, she reappears again and takes the neckpiece of you and gives you 10 gold. If you'd rather keep the necklace, you have to avoid that part of the jungle from now on as there's no 'screw you, I want the necklace' option.
Anyway, you now have access to the Ambush skill - it appears as the last icon in the skills menu that was blank until now. You have to wield a dagger to use it, can only use it on your first attack.
Notes and Hints

Harpy - Rare Spawn
While attacking a tiger or gorilla in STV, you may instead fight a harpy. Be sure to kill it without it taking a turn, or else it might run away. It drops Benediction, a +16 to intellect staff that sells for a little over 4 gold. Freeze/stun skills will help you catch the harpy.
Order of Zul'gurub's Encounters
- Felva the Rogue,
- Jeklik the bat
- Venoxis the snake
- Mar'li the spider
- Thekal the tiger
- Arlokk the panther
Priests of Zul'gurub
Below are their drops and notes about their abilities:
- Jeklik the bat (drops Zulian Defender, shield, level 15, 2312 armor, 13 sta). Low damage, does heal.
- Venoxis the snake(drops Fang of Venoxis, dagger, level 15, 4-6 damage, +8 int). Moderate damage, no heal.
- Mar'li the spider (drops Flowing Ritua Robes, chest, level 18, 100 armor, +28 int). Can casr Drain Life.
- Thekal the tiger (drops Seal of Jin, ring, level 20, 5 armor, +23 agi). Can cast whirlwind.
- Arlokk the panther (drops Bloodsoaked Greaves, feet, level 24, 486 armor, +25 sta). Can cast Execute regardless of target's HP.
Gahz'ranka, the Fish Beast
To find Gahz'ranka, enter the final bridge screen in Zul Gurub from either side. You have around a 1% chance of finding him without a lucky fishing hat equipped. If you have the Lucky Fishing Hat equipped, it's about a 15% chance to find him.
If you have the sound on, you'll hear a roar. Walk onto the bridge, and Murk will say, "What was that...?" Then the fight starts.
This is a randomly triggered event, meaning you might have to leave then center the screen many times before you meet the fish monster.
Gahz'ranka isn't a hard fight. Use your normal strategy and it should work. Once he dies he drops Furor's Eyepatch, a head piece with 30 agility which requires level 14 to equip.
Hakkar the Soulflayer
It can use high-damage abilities such as Cleave, Life Tap, Corrupt Blood. Loot is Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds, a sword with 7-10 damage, +28 sta, and level 20 requirement to equip.
If defeated, interaction with Zunkil will yield Hazza'rah's Charm of Magic, a necklace with 0 armor and +24 int, requring level 15 to equip.
A Great Dragon in Azeroth - Onyxia
You have to have freed Falthir to find Onyxia. Further, you have to be level 20 or above. This is because Falthir sells various objects once freed. One of these is a 'Blood Talisman'. It's not great, but many people don't have anything else in the trinket slot, so 4 Stamina is better than nothing. It has a minimum level of twenty and cost 55gold. Buy this trinket and equip it.
Once you have the trinket, go back to the goblin transporter, return to the Jasperdine mine. Go all the way to the last screen, the part where you fought Fangus with the chest at the back with the epic mace (candlestick) in it. If you have the talisman equipped, a fairly common random occurrence is a portal appearing at the end to Onyxia's Lair. You might have to leave and re-enter the screen a few times to trigger it. Go to the portal and press spacebar to enter Onyxia's Lair.
Onyxia is a big dragon who does a lot of damage. She is not immune to stuns, so simply use Frost Nova every 2 turns. When she dies, she drops the Ancient Cornerstone Grimoire: an off-hand, that instead of summoning a skeleton like it should, gives you 300 Intellect.
