World of Warcraft (WoW): How to Get to Northrend from Orgrimmar

How to Get to Northrend from Orgrimmar in World of Warcraft

Azeroth can be a confusing place to find your way around in if you’re just hopping into World of Warcraft for the first time. With new continents sprouting up with each new expansion you may be wondering how exactly to get to some of these places. Be it for leveling, or just to take in the sights of past content, we’ll be your personal travel agent. Among these places may be the icy-continent of Northrend. Here’s how to get to Northrend from Orgrimmar in World of Warcraft (WoW).

In November of 2008, World of Warcraft released their second expansion: Wrath of the Lich King. In this expansion, players made combat with the antagonistic powerhouse of Warcraft 3, Arthas Menethil, who has been consumed by the power of the Lich King. While the Scourge marched their forces on the living, players took up arms against the Lich King’s army in their home continent of Northrend. This war would be waged over the course of sixteen new dungeons and nine new raids. Ultimately, players would find themselves facing off against Arthas in the Icecrown Citadel where they decided the fate of Azeroth’s survival (until the next expansion, at least).

At the time of this war, then Warchief Thrall began sending Horde forces to the wintery continent. Luckily for us, the Horde established a permanent line of transportation between Orgrimmar and the Borean Tundra in Southwestern Northrend. This has made getting to the continent extremely easy.

Once you have made your way to Orgrimmar all you have to do is head to the central zeppelin station and get on the airship that is headed to Northrend. Be careful, however, as if you end up on the wrong zeppelin you will find yourself in Thunder Bluff. And while the Tauren capital city is nice and all, it’s not quite the winter-wonderland we were hoping to get to.

Once you get on the correct zeppelin and find yourself in the Borean Tundra, you are free to explore the beautiful continent of Northrend in WoW.
