WoW: How do I get to ...? Great guide for all places

Are you lost in the World of Warcraft and don't know how to get to a certain place? This guide explains how to get there for each important place.


The World of Warcraft is big. Very large. No wonder, because with 8 expansions Azeroth has grown again and again, has got new continents, planets and even entire dimensional levels. But to switch back and forth between the individual locations is sometimes not that easy. Especially newcomers or returnees could feel overwhelmed by all the portals and requirements.


Again and again you can read the question of how to get to location X or area Y in the various chat channels. Because not everything is intuitively accessible.


To give you a little help, we have a great guide that explains briefly how to reach each larger area.


We explain the basic activation for each area and offer even simpler alternatives. Note, however, that the alternatives are primarily intended for characters who have already unlocked the area.


How do I get to Argus?

Argus was the final area of ​​the "Legion" expansion, it is a separate planet. There are numerous rare enemies here with toys, mounts and also some interesting quests. But Argus is at the very end of the Legion game cycle, which is why some requirements are required in order to unlock Argus for the first time.


  • Character must be at least level 45
  • Achievement: Unification of the islands (friendly to all 5 factions of the Broken Isles) and subsequent activation of the world quests at Khadgar in Dalaran
  • Completion of the quest series "The Legionfall", starts in Dalaran near Khadgar at the landing site
  • Completion of the "Attack on the Broken Shore" scenario that follows
There's a lot to do on Argus - if you can get there!

If all of this is fulfilled, you go to Dalaran in the Violet Citadel to Khadgar and accept the quest "The Hand of Fate". Follow this quest, because at the end it will lead you directly to Argus. There you should continue playing a bit to unlock teleporters.

If you have unlocked Argus in this way, you can return there at any time via a teleporter in Dalaran (Broken Isles). You will then find the golden teleporter at Krasus' landing site.

How do I get to Draenor?

Draenor is a world of its own and the location of the expansion "Warlords of Draenor". Basically there are several ways to get to Draenor.

The first time it is worth completing the quest line. If your character is below level 50, speak to Chromie in Stormwind City or Orgrimmar to start the Draenor Timewalking. Then there is the quest automatically and it leads you to Draenor.

If your character is already over level 50, you can accept the quest "Warlords of Draenor: The Dark Portal" on notice boards in the cities of the Horde and Alliance. You can also manually travel to the Blasted Lands and accept the quest directly from Khadgar.

In Draenor there's the garrison - and much more.

In any case, you then play the intro scenario and get to your garrison in Draenor, which at the end also grants a garrison hearthstone with which you can always return quickly.

If you don't want to play the intro scenario, you can also use a special trick. Draenor and Pandaria are connected by a magic circle of chairs. When in Pandaria, visit the Timeless Isle to the east. Go to coordinates 70/77 and dive. You will find an underwater cave with a circle of chairs. Sit down on one of the chairs and click on the fire in the middle to be teleported directly to Draenor (Gorgrond).

This cave teleports you straight to Draenor.

Alternatives: There are several options to get to Draenor later.

  • The Garrison Hearthstone will always bring you to your Garrison in Draenor once you have received it.
  • Mage players can open a portal to Draenor.
  • In the portal chamber of your capital (Orgrimmar or Stormwind) there is a portal to Draenor (storm shield or war spear).

Outland is the location of the expansion "The Burning Crusade", the first add-on from WoW.

If you are below level 50, you can start the timewalking for "The Burning Crusade" at Chromie in Stormwind or Orgrimmar. In that case, the quest will take you straight to Outland.

But you can also speak to a mage in front of the portal room (Orgrimmar) or in the mage tower (Stormwind) and say that you should report to Outland. Then he teleports you directly to the Hellfire Peninsula.

Shattrath - The heart of Outland.

In Orgrimmar (Horde) and Stormwind (Alliance) there are numerous portals that make traveling more convenient. You unlock these portals over time, for example when climbing certain steps or when the story has progressed far enough.

Portals in Stormwind

The two portal locations in Stormwind.

The portal chamber is easy to find in Stormwind. Go to the magician quarter and then to the magician tower. Climb this all the way to the top and step through the large portal. Then you are in the portal chamber. There are abbreviations in the following areas:

Portals in Orgrimmar

The two portal locations in Orgrimmar.

  • Caves of Time (Kalimdor, Tanaris)
  • Shattrath (Outland)

In the north of the city you will also find some portals into the areas of the Cataclysm expansion. For this you must have played the story missions of the respective expansion far enough so that they can be unlocked.
