In the 10-20 level range, a few more zones become accessible. Overall Степи
is considered the optimal zone for all Horde races to level in due to its large level range, high quantity of quests, and relative safety (as it is still considered Horde territory). Когтистые горы
is also accessible once players reach level 16-20.Серебряный бор
is a viable (albeit weaker) alternative to Степи
in this level range, although for Undead players it is the closest zone after Тирисфальские леса
. Given that the zeppelin to Дуротар
is nearby, Степи
can be accessed just as easily.
The Barrens (Horde territory)Степи
is a level 10-33 zone in central Kalimdor. Most of the quests will originate from Far Watch Post
, The Crossroads
, and Camp Taurajo

- Transit: Flight paths are located in The Crossroads, Ratchet, and Camp Taurajo.
- Terrain: The terrain of The Barrens can be described as a savanna plain with some small mountains throughout the zone. Overall, navigating and traversing The Barrens is relatively easy.
- Mob Density: Mobs tend to be spread out, although in some areas the mob density dramatically increases (Thorn Hill, The Forgotten Pools, etc). Avoid traveling past Camp Taurajo until closer to level 20.
