Now, should you opt to hit the Fjord first instead of Borean Tundra for your Northrend leveling, be aware that this is a zone in turmoil and strife. The majority of the major questlines are shared by both Horde and Alliance. The only real difference is that their quest NPCs and locations will be unique for each side.
If you are looking for Alliance information, you can head over to our Alliance Borean Tundra Quest Guide which covers the Borean Tundra for Alliance players.
The easiest way for Horde players to reach Northrend's Howling Fjord is via the new zeppelin found outside the Undercity, between the city and the town of Brill. Recently, Goblin engineers have completed building the structure and, after the appropriate decay level reached, it was put into service for the Horde. As you arrive in Vengeance landing, you will see a vast encampment, filled with siege engines, mounted troops and a variety of Forsaken designed buildings, valiantly fighting the Scourge foothold in the area.
When you arrive, head down the stairs and to your left, there is a bat rider, an inn and a few other structures. Standing near the Inn, Apothecary Lysander offers the first series of quests to get you started.
While working on those quests, you can look for Pontius, who will give you the following quests as well:Sergeant Gorth and move to the final two after that:
Astride his undead warhorse at the far end of the encampment, High Executor Anselm provides quests for any maggots worthy of his time.
New Agamand is one of the few Forsaken towns found in Howling Fjord. The town is named after the Agamand family, once a symbol of prosperity in Tirisfal Glades before the Plague. The town is on the "front lines" of the offensive against the Scourge. Ever since Lady Sylvanas Windrunner came to power, the Royal Apothecary Society has been working non stop to develop a weapon to wipe out the Scourge.
While in New Agamand, keep an eye out for Chief Plaguebringer Harris. He has several quests for you, including two optionals.
Once those three are done, you can then move on to the following four quests.
While attacking Skorn, you will have a chance to pick up an item that opens up the following quests for you.
Also, during the quest Dealing With Gjalerbron, you may find a drop that begins two more quests.
The following NPCs have each of their quests broken down by NPC.

This is a four-way quest tree of sorts. There are three that have a single step and one large one with four parts you must complete to open the next one.
Then, when you finish the quest, Street "Cred", a whole line of new quests will open up for you.
In addition, completing Forgotten Treasure opens you up to complete the next three.
This will complete the Kamagua area and you can then move on to the Frozen Glade.
