First of all it should be mentioned that if you want to reach some point on the map while you're still low level, and the way is too dangerous, your best bet is to have a mage friend who can portal you to the capital cities for your faction. That should get you closer to where you want to go.

Any Alliance mage level 40 or higher should have the portal spells for Ironforge and Stormwind. However the portal to Darnassus is only available to mages level 50 or higher.

You should be prepared to give the mage some coin. Each portal consumes a  [Rune of Portals], which costs 20s each.

Of course this method costs money and you're unable to collect flypoints on the way. Still, if you simply want to reach Stormwind as a level 6 night elf, just because all your friends are one of the three other races, and you want to level together, it's the fastest way.

If you want or need a travel route added to this guide, put your request in the discussion area.
