Elwynn Forest is the starting World of Warcraft zone for Humans and, while it is highly populated due to its easy questing chain, it doesn’t have too many points to worry about for exploration. The biggest problem you can possibly face when exploring this zone is for Horde characters, as they have to tiptoe their way around the zone. Most Humans, Dwarves and Gnomes should already have gotten this achievement out of the way easily! If you haven’t, here’s a useful guide for you below.

To get started, you’ll need to come in through Duskwood at the south. From here, start at Ridgepoint Tower (84,79), then go north to Eastvale Logging Camp (81,66), and then northwest until you get to the island of Stone Cairn Lake (73,58). The next discovery point is the Tower of Azora (64,70), and then the Brackwell Pumpkin Patch (69,79). Go northwest from then onto Crystal Lake (52,66).
Goldshire (42,65) should be next on your list of points to explore, followed by Forest’s Edge (27,77) and the Fargodeep Mine (38,82). The last point in the southern side of the map is Jerod’s Landing (48,87).
To finish obtaining the Explore Elwynn Forest achievement, go straight north until you reach Northshire Valley (45,47). Your last point of this achievement will be Stormwind City (32,48), which is not as hard as some cities to explore for the Horde players because of the wide gates and moat which you can eke across to get credit.
Ultimately, when you explore Elwynn Forest, you’ll need to be sure to steer clear of the Alliance camps (if you’re Horde). Otherwise, this is a quick, simple exploration for a WoW starting zone, especially when compared to zones like Dun Morogh!
