Borean Tundra is one of the two "starter zones" for Northrend. It contains a wide variety of areas, including the completely separated region of Coldarra where The Nexus is located. This guide is focused on Alliance questing.

Taking the ship there will take you to Valliance Keep, the first quest hub on the Tundra and the stronghold of the Alliance.

Coldrock Quarry quests come from Etaruk on the southeast slopes outside the quarry, and from Elder Atkanok (54.6, 35.7), a large crystal that represents one of the Tuskarr's ancient elders.
