Northrend is the area in World of Warcraft that was opened when the expansion Wrath of the Lich King was introduced. You will see it on your map above and centered between Kalmidor and The Eastern Kingdom.
Why Go To Northrend?
Northrend is where you will spend most of your time once you hit 68 till level 80, so it would be a good idea to get there as soon as you can to speed up your leveling and to get access to the upgraded gear and if for nothing else to have a change in scenery.
Horde Paths to Northrend
The areas for Horde players are the same general areas as those for the alliance, but not the same docks. So to get to Borean Tundra take the zeppelin from Ogrimmar, you will land across the zone at a different dock than the alliance, but be in the same area for quests, etc… If you prefer to get to Howling Fjord then take the zeppelin from Undercity, again you will have access to the same quest chains as the alliance, but be in a slightly different area.
Borean Tundra To Howling Fjord Without Flightpaths
You can find a tusker village on the coast that will have a giant turtle harbored for you to ride from Borean Tundra to Howling Fjord and vice versa one to the other, there will be a short stop in Dragonblight where you can switch turtles. This is free and is similar to riding the boats, it would be a good idea to open up flight paths on both ends of the ride as well as running in when in Dragonblight to find the flight master.
Get to know the location of the area which is the Stormwind Harbor by heading on towards the northwest part of the Strormwind city. The access points to the place are said to be area in the middle of the Cathedral Square and the Park. Along with the expansion planned very soon by the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King: players will surely set their feet off on this ground. This said expansion will surely be the newest and truly one of a kind.
The builders of the area are in the personages of the creatures namely the following:
1. The Humans
2. The Dwarves
3. The Gnomes
The above mentioned creatures of WOTLK joined their skills and expertise in building up the area and under the great and outstanding supervision of Foreman Wick. Their joint forces truly come up with an excellent masterpiece. The construction of the place will surely venture the exciting journey of lots of online characters.
Connecting Points of the Instance Area:
The place is considered to be the great port that will make a good transportation connection in between the Kalimdor and Northrend. The port will now connect the zone of Borean Tundra to the Valiance keep. Both zones are likely to be found at the Northrend region. In connection with this, the Stormwind Harbor replaces the port that is made within the Auberdine and the place of Menethil Harbor which was the port that connects to the Easter Kingdom into the Northern part of the Kalimdor.
The above change will enable to port to directly sail on the place of the Stormwind City which will open the gateway for the night elves as well as the draenei players to get rid of the so called death race all the way through the Wetlands.
It very worthy to take note that the Harbor attributes to the introduction of a new type of boat vessel that is uniquely propelled with the use of a paddle wheel which is known as the, the kraken. The previously mentioned boat is capable of making its way to the Northrend.
The Stormwind Harbor is said to be the sole harbor that exist in the Stormwind. This harbor is comprised of a waterfront that opens its boundaries to the city.
