How to Reach Northrend in WOTLK


Horde players who want to begin from the Howling Fjord will need to head toward the new zeppelin tower in Tirisfal Glades. The zeppelin Cloudkisser will then take you toward Northrend.

Horde players who want to begin from Borean Tundra should find the zeppelin tower in Durotar just past Rock Tusk Farm. Be sure to look for dockmaster Zelli Hotnozzle on the north side of the tower. Players can catch a ride on the Mighty Wind zeppelin to Northrend.


Alliance players starting in the Howling Fjord must travel to the Wetlands which is north of Iron Forge. In the Wetlands, a boat in Menethil Harbor will ship you out to Northrend.

Alliance players who want to start in the Borean Tundra, head to the northernmost dock at Stormwind Harbor.


Players need to be at least Level 68 to reach Northrend. Northrend can be found between Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. Level 74 Mages can also teleport to Dalarlan which is the sanctuary city in Northend.
