How to start Highmountain tauren questline?


Think you need to have done the Highmountain storyline in that zone.


Gram is right. You need to complete Highmountain

I’m not 100% sure here but I think OP is asking how to start the questline in Highmountain, not where to start the questline for unlocking the race.
If that’s the case and there’s nothing on the scouting map and no quest marker on the Highmountain map, try checking Krasus’ Landing in new Dalaran, if Khadgar is there talking to a Highmountain Tauren then take the quest there.


How to Unlock Highmountain Tauren Fast in Shadowlands [2021]

A quick guide to every step required to unlock the Highmountain Tauren allied race in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Many allied race guides don’t include the details that new or returning players need. This is especially true when it comes to traveling to different zones and starting specific quest chains. This guide will show you what you need to do to unlock the Highmountain Tauren allied race and give you the details you need to get started.

Before we dive into the details, at a high level, there are two things you need to do to unlock the Highmountain Tauren allied race in Shadowlands.

  1. Earn the Ain’t No Mountain High Enough achievement by finishing the Highmountain storyline.
  2. Complete a recruitment questline, which starts at the Orgrimmar Embassy (requires level 45+ Horde character).

To get started on earning Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, you need to first get to Highmountain. If you haven’t been there before, or it has been a while since you played, you may feel lost.

Don’t worry; I will walk you through exactly what you need to do to travel there and start the storyline.

How to get to Highmountain in Shadowlands [2021]

Highmountain is the northern-most zone located on the Broken Shore continent. You can get to the Broken Shore by using your Dalaran Hearthstone. Alternatively, you can take the portal to Azsuna found in the Stormwind or Orgrimmar portal room. From there, you can fly or run to Highmountain.

However, both of these approaches only work if you have been to the Broken Shore before.

What if you haven’t been to the Broken Shore? How do you start the Ain’t No Mountain High Enough questline? 

Brand new player

If you are a new player and haven’t reached level 50 on any character yet, you will need to complete the Battle for Azeroth (BFA) introduction first. This short quest chain awards an achievement Come Sail Away (Alliance)/Welcome to Zandalar (Horde).

Once you get that achievement, you can visit the Hero’s Call Board in Stormwind or Warchief’s Command Board in Orgrimmar to start the Legion storyline.  These boards can be found near banks/auction houses in their respective city.

The option you are looking for on the board is for the Broken Shore and says, “Fight the Legion.” This will let you start the Legion storyline and get to Highmountain without Chromie Time. Using this option will scale Legion content from levels 10 – 45.

If you don’t see it in your list, you can open and close the command board to refresh the options. If that still doesn’t work, you can pick up the available quests (and drop them later) to refresh the options until Broken Shore appears.

Accepting the quest from the board will walk you through the process of traveling to the Broken Shore. After completing In the Blink of an Eye, an NPC should spawn and start the process of unlocking your class hall. It may take a moment for the NPC to show up (must be in Dalaran), so try relogging if they don’t show up.

Once you unlock your class hall, use the Scouting Map to accept The Lone Mountain quest. This will start the Highmountain storyline and the process of earning Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.

New player with a level 50 character

If you have reached level 50 on a character, you have a couple of options.

You can use your main character to pick up the Broken Shore quest from the command board and follow the same process as above. Or, you can start a new character and level them up through Highmountain by using something called Chromie Time.

Chromie Time is a feature that allows players with a level 50 toon to create additional characters and level them in old expansions. To use Chromie Time, you will need to travel to the embassy in Stormwind or Orgrimmar and find the gnome with the giant hourglass nearby.

You can then select “The Legion Invasion” to start the Broken Shore and Highmountain questline on a level 10 character.

If your level 50 character is an Alliance character, I recommend that you level a new Horde character in Chromie Time. This will prepare you for the recruitment quest chain, which requires a level 45 Horde character!

Returning Players

As a returning player, the first thing you should do is check to see if you have a Dalaran Hearthstone. If you do, you are well on your way to starting the Highmountain questline.

If you do not have the hearthstone, you can try taking the portal to Azsuna from the Stormwind or Orgrimmar portal room. Should both those options fail, you will need to use Chromie Time to start The Legion Invasion (if you have a level 50 character).

For returning players without a level 50 character, you will need to pick up the Broken Shore questline from a command board after completing the BFA introduction. If you do not have a level 45+ Horde toon, you should consider starting one at this point because it is required for the last step in unlocking Highmountain Tauren.

Once you have arrived on the Broken Shore and unlocked your class hall, you can pick up The Lone Mountain from your class hall scouting map. This will begin the Highmountain quest chain required to earn Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.

Complete the Highmountain storyline

Now that you have traveled to Highmountain and started the questline, you can begin working on the achievement. In total, you will need to complete 7 chapters of the story and unite the tribes of Highmountain.

If you are having trouble finding where to begin a chapter, you can look at your world map. Major quest start points will be marked with large gold exclamation points to make it easy. If you are ever lost, return to Thunder Totem (the large building in the middle of the zone) because many quest chains start there.

If no quests show up, make sure you have completed The Lone Mountain by picking it up from your class hall in Dalaran.

For reference, I have included a list of chapters you will need to complete and a map showing where you can start each one. Be aware that some chapters need to be completed before others unlock, so you want to finish them in the order listed.

  1. The Rivermane Tribe
  2. Riverbend
  3. Huln’s War
  4. Secrets of Highmountain
  5. The Bloodtotem Tribe
  6. The Skyhorn Tribe
  7. Battle of Snowblind Mesa

All around, it will take you about 3-4 hours to finish the questline and earn Ain’t No Mountain High Enough. If you are under level 30 and don’t have Legion flying, it could take you a little longer.

Do the recruitment quests

With the Highmountain storyline out of the way, it is time to recruit the Highmountain Tauren into the mighty Horde (and onto your character creation screen).

To do this, you need to travel to the embassy in Orgrimmar and pick up a quest called A Feast for Our Kin. This requires you to have a level 45+ Horde character and the Ain’t No Mountain High Enough achievement.

The quest chain is pretty quick and can be done in less than an hour.

Once you have finished it, you can now play as a Highmountain Tauren!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long does it take to unlock Highmountain Tauren?

Given the length of the Highmountain storyline, I would expect it to take you around 4 – 6 hours to unlock Highmountain Tauren from scratch. However, it could take longer if you need to level a Horde character to level 45 to start the recruitment quest.

Q. What classes can Highmountain Tauren be?

The Highmountain Tauren allied race can play as 6 different classes in World of Warcraft. They cannot play as demon hunters, mages, paladins, priests, rogues, or warlocks.

The classes they can play include:
Death Knight

Q. What racial traits do Highmountain Tauren have?

Highmountain Tauren have 1 active racial ability and 4 racial passives.

Their active ability is called Bull Rush. When used, it causes you to charge forward and knock down any enemies you come in contact with.

Highmountain Tauren’s racial passives include:
Pride of Ironhorn  – Faster mining and 15 higher skill in the mining profession.
Mountaineer – Versatility stat is 1% higher.
Rugged Tenacity – Damage taken is reduced by your level times 3 (so 180 damage at level 60).
Waste Not, Want Not – Chance to loot more meat and fish.

Q. How do I get the Highmountain Tauren heritage armor in Shadowlands?

Once you have unlocked Highmountain Tauren, you can begin working on acquiring their heritage armor. To do this, you need to earn the Heritage of Highmountain achievement. This requires you to reach level 50 on a new Highmountain Tauren.

As an important side note, you will not earn the achievement if you reach level 50 by using a level boosts, race change, or recruit a friend levels to unlock the armor.   

Final Thoughts on Unlocking Highmountain Tauren

You can unlock the Highmountain Tauren allied race by completing the main Highmountain zone storyline and a short recruitment quest chain. To start the Highmountain quests, you need to get to Legion Dalaran and unlock your class hall.

From there, use the Scouting Map and select Highmountain. Finish those quests and then head back to the Orgrimmar embassy to start the recruitment.

The Highmountain tauren are an offshoot of tauren found in the region of Highmountain on the Broken Isles. Divided into four tribes (Highmountain, Rivermane, Skyhorn and Bloodtotem), they are the direct descendants of the tauren led by Huln Highmountain who assisted the Kaldorei Resistance during the War of the Ancients.[1] During the war, Huln received a blessing from Cenarius, so that his people would forever have the demigod's favor, granting them the Horns of Eche'ro: moose-like antlers.[2]

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, the drogbar, who had previously lived in peace with the Highmountain, rose up and stole the sacred  [Hammer of Khaz'goroth], shattering the unity of the four tribes. The tauren found aid from adventurers from outside Highmountain, who defeated the drogbar and recovered the Hammer. Not long afterward, the Highmountain tauren joined their kin from Kalimdor as members of the Horde.


War of the Ancients

The peaks and valleys of Highmountain have been home to four ancient tauren tribes for millennia: Rivermane, Skyhorn, Bloodtotem, and Highmountain.[1] For generations, the tribes fought each other upon the mountain. Countless lives and even entire tribes were lost in the bloodshed, until one day, Huln of the Highmountain tribe found his people slaughtered by an unfamiliar foe. Though battling with grief, he managed to convince the warring tribes to unite under his own banner to face this new threat: the Burning Legion.[3]

Joining with the Kaldorei Resistance alongside the furbolgs and earthen, Huln and his tauren played a crucial role in several battles during the War of the Ancients. For his bravery and his rescue of the mooseEche'ro, Huln and his people received a blessing from the Wild GodCenarius, so that they would always have the demigod's favor: the Horns of Eche'ro.[2] After the war, Huln returned home. With the aid of a powerful artifact known as the  [Hammer of Khaz'goroth], he banished the black dragonDeathwing from the region and liberated the dragon's drogbar slaves. In Huln's honor, the four tribes renamed their homeland "Highmountain".[4]

LegionThis section concerns content related to Legion.

For centuries, the Highmountain tauren tribes protected the Hammer of Khaz'goroth and lived in peace alongside the drogbar. However, soon after the Burning Legion's arrival on the isles, a drogbar leader by the name of Dargrul rose up and shattered their unity by stealing the hammer and killing High Chieftain Ulan, intending to use the artifact's immense power to take control of the region.[5] In response, Mayla Highmountain, daughter of Ulan and his heir, enlisted the aid of adventurers in order to stop Dargrul and reunite the scattered tribes. Despite their efforts, the Bloodtotem tribe betrayed their brethren by joining the Burning Legion. In their place, the drogbar Navarrogg and his Stonedark tribe joined the Highmountain's cause instead.[6]

Joining the Horde

After corresponding with Chieftain Baine Bloodhoof in the aftermath of the Argus Campaign, Mayla Highmountain accepted an invitation to attend a feast in Thunder Bluff. This was the first time that the Highmountain tauren had visited Kalimdor. Yet when Baine and the Hordechampion greeted their Highmountain tauren guests, Spiritwalker Ebonhorn was tormented by the Old Gods' forces of Uul'gyneth attempting to corrupt him,[7] and he and Mayla were forced to retreat back to Thunder Totem while Baine and the Horde champion defended Thunder Bluff from Uul'gyneth's invasion force.[8][9] Apparently, the wards Ebonhorn had been maintaining in Highmountain weakened just enough to let the Darkness seep through.[10]

Later on, Baine and the Horde champion traveled to Thunder Totem to offer their aid to mend Ebonhorn,[11] who has been fighting unconsciously to keep a darkness from consuming him. Mayla sent the Horde champion to Spiritwalker Graysky,[12] who has the Horde champion undergo Spiritwalker rituals to walk in the memories of Igrul the Scalebane,[13]Oenia Skyhorn,[14] and Huln Highmountain in order to restore the wards that kept the dark corrupting forces at bay.[15] After restoring the wards, Ebonhorn regained consciousness[16] and revealed Uul'gyneth sought to return and conquer Highmountain. Baine, Mayla, the Horde champion, and Ebonhorn left to join Lasan Skyhorn, Aviash, and Jale Rivermane at Highmountain Summit to thwart the Necrodark's ritual to incarnate Uul'gyneth[10] and restore the final ward. They failed however, and Uul'gyneth was summoned into the physical realm,[17] leaving the Horde champion little choice but to vanquish Uul'gyneth the Darkness. After the battle, Mayla expressed her gratitude for rescuing her people from the Old Gods.[18] Impressed by the strength and courage of the Horde, Mayla and Baine traveled to Orgrimmar to pledge the Highmountain tauren to the Horde.[19]

Appearance and culture

This section is a lore stub.

The Highmountain tauren appear largely similar to their Kalimdor cousins, with the main difference being their prominent antler-like Horns of Eche'ro,[2] rather than the more bovine-looking horns seen on yaungol, tauren and taunka. Both males and females have these antlers, though the ones seen on females are much smaller. The Highmountain tauren inscribe and decorate their antlers to show their particular tribe affiliation or even their rank within that tribe.[1]

Much like the Kalimdor tauren, the Highmountain tauren worship the Earth Mother[20][21][22] and her two eyes, An'she (the sun)[23][24] and Mu'sha (the White Lady).[25] It is, however, unclear if they acknowledge the Sky Father.

Not all Highmountain tauren are hunters, but those that are typically commemorate their first kill with a ceremonial drum, stretched with the hide of their quarry. Most trailhead drums are made with rabbithide or foxhide. Hunters typically carry them for the rest of their lives.[26]

It is customary for a widow, child, or grandchild to keep a pyrestone from the funeral pyre of an especially loved one. These stones are carried in a pocket and rubbed for courage, comfort, or in remembrance of a lost companionship.[27]

For centuries, the Highmountain tauren have fought the basilisks in the Highmountain mesas. The basilisks have adapted to the tauren as thoroughly as the tauren have adapted to the beasts.[28]

Mounts and companions

The Highmountain tauren frequently use the large and powerful moose of Highmountain as mounts or cook their meat as food.[29]Highmountain elderhorns are the favored mount of Highmountain hunters, able to leap across the rushing rivers of Pinerock Basin even when saddled with a full-sized tauren.[30] The tauren train the sure-footed Highmountain thunderhoof moose to safely traverse the paths and peaks of Highmountain.[31] At one point, moosebone was the most common material for fishhooks: solid enough to carve a barb into, but pliable enough not to break off in the mouth of a large salmon. Many tauren fishermen carved elaborate designs into their "lucky hooks".[32] The Highmountain tribes cherish the hide of a rare and elusive creature, the Majestic Elderhorn, for their most important ceremonies.[33]

The enormous Great Eagles of Highmountain are revered by the Skyhorn tribe,[34] who use them as mounts in much the same way as the Frostborndwarves of the Storm Peaks.
