Sundering Along: finding your way through BRD

03/11/2010

How to find your way around BRD:  a visual guide / howto / map.

In case you’re confused by how to find your way around in BRD, I’ve compiled a flowchart to help guide the way.   It shows routes, how to get the key, and bosses along the way.  I like the chart on wowwiki, but I’m a more pictures-visual person.

In case you wanted more information, the pdf version – Giant BRD flowchart – has links to bosses/quests, and better resolution, unlike the jpeg below.

Yellow arrows are optional bosses.

Blue, the path to get a key.

Green, the path with a key.

Pink, once you’ve opened the lock.

I’ll make two notes that I couldn’t fit in the chart – (1)  once you have the key, its smart to open the gates, so that new members can continue, without following a strange path to find you.   (2)  If you’re tanking, or sure that you have a good tank, and want the key – on zoning in:  go straight, do an immediate u-turn, and then go up the Dark Iron highway.  That’ll lead to Incendius, and you can do the key route in reverse.  The hazard of this route is that the highway and upper arena will have large groups of adds to be tanked.  That can wreck some tanks.

Let me know if I missed anything / if it can be improved upon!

*Disclaimer:  I left the lava “shortcut” off intentionally.  Because its just cruel to tempt lvl 50-somethings with a speedy run, when it’ll just lead to certain doom.
