Home of the Sunken Temple (
). This zone is particularly used by horde because of the base in the south. It serves as a very good zone to raise herbalism skill and as a gateway to the Blasted Lands in the south.
This place is also good for skinners with emerald whelps just south of the entrance to deadwind pass, as well as a chance to drop whelplings and good for grinding, also it has a lost one village north of the sunken temple as well as one of the common spots where the quest item that starts "Lost supplies" is located. Higher Levels and grind on the green dragonkin around the temple.
If your alliance you should also stop by Nethergrade Keep in the blasted lands since there's no flight point here :(.
What exactly is the best way to get here when you're around level 40?
I took the trip down from Arathi today, and I SERIOUSLY don't recommend it to anyone. It took me almost half an hour. Would have been longer if I couldn't use my Mount on the strips of walkable land.
I'll test the Deadwind Pass route tomorrow, and post the results here.
It's very possible to go through Deadwind Pass to get to Swamp of Sorrows, even at an early level. Just make sure to avoid the Sky Shadows (buzzards) and don't miss the turn into the swamp itself as there are a number of mobs between the entrance to the swamp and Karazhan. Ogres, for the most part.
To confirm what people seem to be wondering: Taking
to get to the Swamp of Sorrows is the easiest method. If you stay on the road and do not deviate to any of the side paths, you can do this as a level 30-ish player with no problems. The
mobs in the area
are significantly higher than level 30, but they are also notably off the beaten path.
the monsters are in the 30's and the 40's i suggest u dont go there till probably 34
ok those are all lies to day on my 43 i tryed to get to swamp of sorrows and thew hole way there ?? vulture i died then walked 2 the graveryard in swamp then took rez sickness
I apologize for asking a question here, but anyways, are there many players here? Also, is there an Alliance town here?
is ther a FP here?
a non horde FP
The nearest Non-horde FP is in Nethergard Keep, just south of the entrance to the Blasted Lands.
always wondered why SOS is shaped like an giant axe head:S, and with the yellow beach as it's sharp edge (on the map thats it;)
p.s where the road to blasted lands leads is a perfect place to put the shaft:P
wasnt swamp of sarrows and blasted lands all part of the black morass?
The name is likely a shout-out to the Swamp of
in the book (and loosely-inspired film series)
The Neverending Story
Where is the harborage for the exploration achievement?
Does anyone know where sorrowmurk is? I have been running around trying to find it for an hour...trying to get the achievement for exploring swamp of sorrows...
Has anyone realized that Swamp of Sorrows bears an uncanny resemblance to a place in the book titled "The NeverEnding Story", in which a place is called Swamps of Sadness.
It is mentioned in the portion where the rider goes off to find a wizard for assistance.
The name, Swamp Of Sorrows, is actually a reference to The Lost Vikings, another game by Blizzard. A picture of Eric, a character from The Lost Vikings, talking about it-
For those of us on PvE servers who don't want to really PvP, a word of warning; NPCs from Stonard patrol around various areas and they are flagged for PvP. If you kill one you'll be flagged for 5 minutes.
Also there is a box at 37.3 - 35.6 that gives this quest
The Alliance questgivers in Kalimdor sure love sending you way out to this zone for random crap.
On the Venture Co realm Stonard is home to a The Black Tooth Grin,
If your a level 80 alliance the easiest path to get to the swamp is to go from Nethergrande Keep in the Blasted Lands.
I'm curious about the mining nodes I see that appear to be below the surface, around the south edge, by Stonard. Are these nodes in the instance, or a cave?
awesome i noticed there's a new path going from burning steppes, through redridge mountains, and ending in the swamp of sorrows. nice.
is there any way to get to swamp of sorrows on foot from badlands?
The instance start point has changed. It is now located in the Hall of Masks (which is the first room you enter coming down the stairs from the Broken Hall (the room you swim into).
Also the instance has been drastically changed. The upper floors have been removed. The script for killing the Avatar of Hakkar has been removed. The layout of the bottom floor is unchanged.
Now, simply get the kill quests from
Jammal'an the Prophet
The Blood God Hakkar
) at the instance start, then kill the mobs in order (
Avatar of Hakkar
these mobs have been similarly nerfed, but am not certain as I just went through here with my 80 warlock.
At the moment, at least with the patches distributed and the Farstrider server, Swamp of Sorrows was either not tested or is really broken.
There is a tree in the middle of the building in the Harborage next to the quest giver, and you only see it if you are facing some directions.
Then the building itself is a bit off the ground, so when you come in the front ramp, you can run UNDER the ramp and building.. great fun.
Then the water in many of the northern swamp areas are devoid of water graphic.. though you find that you do suddenly hold your breath for no apparent reason.. until you see the water of a nearby region from the side ... hovering several feet in the air. This over a large swath of area in the north of the zone.
Someone needs to fix this nonsense at Blizzard BEFORE they ship out the changes.
In the Burning Steppes, North-east of Morgan's Vigil is a female goblin and a rocket. Not sure about horde, however talking to her lets you ride a rocket straight to Bogpaddle (In Swamps of Sorrow).
She is located just before the east path into Redridge.
Bogpaddle is a neutral town it seems so id say horde can hitch a 'Fast' ride there too :)
The green hue on everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is reminiscent of anything Borg. Gives the place a creepy feel.
the females name is Sharon Boomgetter and she is located at 78, 58 and yes she does work for horde as well
Once you arrive at Bogpaddle, be sure to get the flightpath there as it's the only way in (for Alliance at least).
For some reason Blizz didn't include a path from SW to The Harborage or Marshtide Watch (or even one via Darkshire), meaning I had to fly back to Morgan's Vigil again and run...
The quests transitioning from
are different for Horde and Alliance.
The Alliance version is
The Horde version is
Those looking for the Midsummer Fires they are both outside of Bogpaddle in the north east corner of the map at 74,13
Amg It's like the First War All over again.
There is a hint to the next world of warcraft expansion...Mists of Panderia in the area
excatly at 91.2 , 40.9 just east of Sorrowmurk
there is a turttle with an asian style object on it's back
probaly to hint out that panderians came to the eastern kingdom before
which also very close to the dark portal
Hope i was helpfull :P
P.S Added a screenshot
wile in my way to farm
I was hoping that as a druid, i could solo them, so i didnt have to multibox a few hunters
I saw the guards @ the harborage, but they would not kill the add, can i get them to kill it for me?
Or is it the fact its a neutral mob?
Everybody loves rares! Have a macro!

Just click it occasionally as you go and make sure your map track targets!

Refresh the page if they aren't shown after clicking.
THE best place for herb-hunting Golden Sansam and Sorrowmoss... if you dont see 5 herb nodes on your minimap at any one time you are doing something wrong.
Since MoP, this is a good place for farming rares for XP and/or greens. There are 15 rares who respawn quickly (4-6h), and almost all of them are at the surface, stationary, and easy to visit even if you don't have a flight mount yet.
Updated rare macro:

Got to SOS with lvl 235 Herbalism, not good, and came in via Deadwind Pass as Horde, don't try and run through Darkshire on the road unless you enjoy dying, but that is another story, had no flight path to Burning Steppe or Badlands or anywhere North so the swimmer that I am I decide to swim along the shore. Well, it is possible to get there, but I am truly qualified as a marathon swimmer now. No way to climb mountains must swim all the way to Fuselight on the sea. Very scenic, but no mining nodes or herbs on the seaward side of those mountains.
RE: Test Your Might -- Kerri Hicks
The Stonard Warriors respawn quickly, and are fairly close together.
Was able to get my 250 in 35 minutes on a level 58-59 Paladin.
Lost One's do not respawn quickly, can fight at range, and that rooting shaman totem is annoying.
Marshfin Murkdweller's are as bad, if not worse. They are part of a quest chain so you find yourself completing with other players.
Flight path, Horde. Make sure you have checked the Flame Crest flight point in the northern corner of Burning Steppes. You need that point to link Bogpaddle to the northern flight network.
This is a swamp of constant sorrow.
It has seen trouble all it's days.
It bid farewell to old Somnus,
The place where he was born and raised.
For ten long years, it's been in trouble.
No pleasures here, on earth I've found.
For in this zone, I'm bound to ramble
It has few allies to help it now.
