Lunar Festival Finery

Frenzied Firecracker

50 Coins of Ancestry

Obtain 50 Coins of Ancestry, easy enough to complete with all the Elders you need to visit.

Elune's Blessing

Defeat Omen in Moonglade, the quest you need to pick up is Elune's Blessing.

The shortest route

We'll start in Dalaran, reason for this is that we can quickly port back when we're done in Northrend and go to Darnassus to finish the Kalimdor Quests and then finally the Eastern Kingdoms.


  • Elder Fargal (Storm Peaks - Frosthold 30, 74)
  • Elder Stonebeard (Storm Peaks - Bouldercrag's Refuge 32, 35)
  • Elder Muraco in Camp Taunka'lo (Storm Peaks 64, 51)
  • Elder Graymane (Storm Peaks - K3 41, 84)

  • Elder Beldak (Grizzly - Westfall Brigade Encampment 59, 26)
  • Elder Whurain (Grizzly - Camp Oneqwah 65, 46)

  • Elder Wanikaya (Sholazar - Rainspeaker Rapids 63, 51)
  • Elder Bluewolf in Wintergrasp (Wintergrasp 49, 14)

Note: We do Wintergrasp as last, because from there you can't mount up and if horde has it, we can't use the portal so we can port back to Dalaran using a Hearthstone.

Now use your Hearthstone and port back to Dalaran and use the Lunar Festival Scroll in Dalaran to Port to Moonglade.

Why Moonglade and not Darnassus/Ogrimmar?
Because both, Horde and Alliance, can port there and make this guide here universal and both actions can follow the same route

  • Elder Nightwind (Felwood 37, 52)

  • Elder Darkcore - Undercity (Enter by the main entrance if you're alliance and run in until you find him)
  • Elder Moonstrike (Western Plaguelands - Top of Scholomance Keep; Outside, NOT in the instance)
  • Elder Meadowrun (Western Plaguelands 66, 48);
  • Elder Windrun (Eastern Plaguelands 35, 69);
  • Elder Snowcrown (Eastern Plaguelands 81, 60);
  • Elder Farwhisper in Stratholme (Instance)

Last but not least the Northrend Dungeon instances (reason for putting them last is, because they can't be done solo).

Update 3: Added Coordinates of Kalimdor in the first part (the summary) too, for people who are only looking for location of certain Elders.

this is shit .. doesnt say where they actually are

well then go make one yourself asshole

Anonymous said...

If you actually read through the WHOLE guide, yes WHOLE, they will give you the place and coordinates to where every elder is that is NOT in a dungeon. Only an idiot would say such a thing about not having the locations of where the elders are. Learn to read!

Now the good post. Thank you for posting this guide. I agree, it IS time consuming and thanks for the coordinates. It helps a lot. Well done on the guide. Will vote for your post on thottbot. ^^

This is a pretty good guide, thanks for making it. It helped me a lot while collecting the achievement :)

I guess you made this as a horde, as for alliance I encountered some problems with the route around the Barrens (huge area with no flight path for Alli).

I would suggest:
# Elder Skygleam (Azshara 72, 85)
then Alli walk down the river and through the side entrance to...
# Elder Darkhorn (Orgrimmar - Valley of Wisdom)
# Elder Runetotem (Razor Hill 54, 44)
# Elder Windtotem (Ratchet 63, 37)
# Elder Moonwarden (The Crossroads 51, 30)
# Elder High Mountain (Camp Taurajo 45, 57)
# Elder Bloodhoof (Bloodhoof Village 48, 53)
# Elder Wheathoof [Former Proudhorn] (Thunder Bluff)
# Elder Skyseer (Freewind Post 45, 48)
# Elder Morningdew (Mirage Raceway 79, 77)
Then continue down to
# Elder Dreamseer (Tanaris, Gadgetzan)
# Elder Wildmane in Zul'Farrak (Tanaris)
# Elder Ragetotem (Tanaris 36, 80)
# Elder Thunderhorn (Un'Goro 50, 76)
# Elder Bladesing in Cenarion Hold
# Elder Primestone in Silithus
Fly to Feralas
# Elder Grimtotem (Feralas 76, 37)
# Elder Mistwalker (Feralas 43, 68) - Near Dire Maul
# Elder Splitrock (Desolace - Maraudon)
Then either fly to Ratchet from Desolace or Hearthstone, head to SW, fly to BB and continue from there.

A lot more convenient for Alli and still works for horde! ;)

Anonymous said...

This is an absolutely fantastic guide. Don't listen to the idiots who say it isn't. You've got everything one could ask for in a guide; coords, pathing, all of it. You even took into consideration ally vs. horde and made a guide both could use. Keep up the good work!

Anonymous said...

very nice piece of work

mandydax said...

Wow, people are being dicks. :P
Correction: Elder Windrun is in Crown Guard Tower, EPL 35.5,68.9
Don't let them bother ya; this guide has been a big help.

Odessa Silverberg said...

thanks@mandydax, fixed it.

Anonymous said...

there are lots of errors here, so I generally agree with those that say eff you for wasting my time. Sorry.

Anonymous said...

This guide is bad! Plain and simple.

Anonymous said...

Ya I'm sorry but this guide should have had a lot more work done to it before it was published. A lot of missing coordinates, wrong locations, and wasted time. Give it a miss, I found myself very frustrated by it midway.

Anonymous said...

Too many of these coordinates are just wrong. Unfortunately, this guide has been copied onto many major WoW sites.

Thanks for wasting so many people's time...

Anonymous said...

Good guide. People who say it is not a good guide are just really lazy because otherwise they would not come here seeking to find a guide.

I am quite sure those morons would not be totally satisfied until they get a bot or something that does it for them. It is idiots like that which buy gold and WoW has been ruined by them

Unknown said...

Thanks for the effort but there are so many time wasting errors it's not worth following.

Anonymous said...

a few errors, but that's what thottbot is for. in terms of one place to go for a whole guide, this is the place. thank you so much! i probably wouldn't have bothered without this guide. thanks!

Anonymous said...

If there are errors, leave correction suggestions, shit. Thanks for the great guide! Got my Elder title within a day :D

Anonymous said...

this was just a waste of time for you to do this "guide" or.. you just wrote it off the wow achivement screen. useless, it´s just the same info i get when i play. I wanna know WHERE in the instances for example the stand.. not in witch.. witch I allready knew.. Dumbass!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree with the guy who said people are just lazy if they think this is a waste of time. Yeah, paths and locations for elders inside the instances would be fantastic, but the coords given for every other elder was spot on.

Keep up the good work!

Anonymous said...

Elder Mistwalker is actually at 62,31 in Dire Maul

Unknown said...

It appears in one of the Kalimdor sections you missed Elder Starweave in Darkshore, The Long Wash (37,47)

Anonymous said...

thanks for the guide. i appreciate and need all the help i can get.

Anonymous said...

Seriously don't let the idiots that are qqing in this thread bother you. Same people you see in game wanting to have their hands held and carried through content.
Guild helped a ton for routing info.

He already did that one. I found it by the one he had up. Also love the guide! Making this SO much easier!

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I liked this guide. It helped a lot. I had to look up where in dungeons, but that takes all of 2 seconds anyway... The great part was that you included the dungeons w/ the zone so you wouldn't have to go back later for the dungeon elder achv. I think the coords were wrong for just one of the elders. The one at Lights Breach Chapel. The coords show up in the mtn ridge. Other than that, this guide was a huge help! Thanks for taking the time to write it out. Those that hate it are just dumb... Most can't even spell... Like the guy who spells which as "witch"...moron.. :-P

Thorne said...

Thanks for this!

Anonymous said...

I dont really understand why people are bagging this. Unless they are using a really crappy coord addon the coords aren't wrong, or are like .1 or so off. It's not hard to use your brain and scout around for the ! mark. Thanks so very much for this, it has saved me so much time. I used an addon to go through and put an icon against the coords on my map - and also did this in conjunction with the exploration achievement.

You have done a great job, thanks very very much!!!

Anonymous said...

Doing this achievement, following the guide, was a lot of fun. Thank you so much for your efforts, it provided linear direction to what would have been very tedious without your guide. I did find Grynd's Alliance tweaks helpful also.

As a Horde getting Elder Sardis wasn't easy. He is also not at 58, 69 he is at 59, 65 on the outside of the fortress. Died a few times to get this one, but still love the guide!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the guide, all I needed was the coordinates and you provided them. I can use my coordinate mods to find them on the world map.

Pinng said...

Some wrong cords, but really helpful guide. Thanks.

On frenzied firecracker, a description that repeats what's in the achievement tab isn't helpful. We could read it the first time.

Now a macro that allows for a 1 button shooting of these off would be more useful. Especially when the realms have had continual lag problems since the last maitenance, including 2-3 seperate shutdowns on realms, and an additional rolling restart for database problems, server latency probs, etc. The more this could be automated down to 1 button only to fire a rocket, and the less task on the user, the better.

Odessa Silverberg said...

There is no macro for it and none can be writen neiter, because after using a firecracker, you need to select a target on the ground.

Best thing you can do is, pull it on the actionbar (i.e. the one which is bound hat 1) and aim with the mouse on the ground and then simply spaming 1-key and left mouse button.

However, depending on the lag, this won't help either nor will a macro ever help you with lag, because lag is the latency the data needs from your PC to the Server and this latency will always be there with macro or not.

Macro only helps against brainlag, not against network connection lag, so sorry.
