This is fairly easy to solo at level 70 to 80. Even in instances like LBRS, you can just walk past most of the mobs. The only real challenge is the enemy racial cities where buffed guards and enemy faction players can make achieving your goal difficult.

START AT IRONFORGE
  1. Ironforge - Mystic Ward
    Pointer flight on 32x32.pngFly gryphon to Thorium Point
  2. Searing Gorge - Southwest corner in Blackchar Cave: [21, 79]
  3. Blackrock Spire - After a few pulls into LBRS, the Elder will be across the first wooden bridge (Head right then left).
  4. Blackrock Depths - In the middle of the Ring of Law.
  5. Burning Steppes - Flame Crest (near the cave with the Libram guy): [53, 24]
  6. Burning Steppes - On top of Dreadmaul Rock north of Morgan's Vigil: [70, 45]
    Pointer flight on 32x32.pngFly gryphon to Stormwind (via Morgan's Vigil)
  7. Stormwind - Outside main gates. (NOT in Park ruins)
  8. Elwynn Forest - In Goldshire, behind blacksmith: [39, 63]
  9. Westfall - Atop the Sentinel Hill tower: [56, 47]
    Pointer flight on 32x32.pngFly gryphon to Nethergarde Keep (via Sentinel Hill)

    Take the boat to Ratchet
    Because this continent is more horde friendly you will basically follow this route on your mount rather than searching out flight points.
  14. Northern Barrens - In Ratchet, behind the bank: [68, 70]
  15. Orgrimmar - By the flight master: [52, 60] (Luckily for you, Orgrimmar is the most populated Horde city, and just like Ironforge, the most crowded places are the bank, the mailbox, and the Auction House. Elder Darkhorn is closer to the southern entrance, however this area have more enemy players. Also you have to take an elevator up there!)

  19. Mulgore - North end of Bloodhoof Village by bridge: [48, 53]
  20. Thunder Bluff - Elder Rise: [72, 23] (Unlike Orgrimmar, Thunder Bluff is not a very big city, therefore, you are much more likely to meet enemy players. However, Thunderbluff is just as popular a city as Darnassus is, and so you have a great chance of not being outnumbered. At least not by anything more than level 15 tauren druids. Enter by the north lift, and go east towards the elder rise.)

  36. Stratholme - North of the Festival Lane mailbox. Go in through the front entrance[27, 9], take the first right, go through the two small gates, then follow the instance until you reach Elder Farwhisper. (The elder is not accessible via the service entrance at the Eastwall Gate.)
    Pointer flight on 32x32.pngFly from Light's Hope Chapel to Chillwind Camp at Western Plaguelands
  37. Tirisfal Glades - Inside the town of Brill close to the southern entrance: [62, 54]
  38. Silverpine Forest - By The Sepulcher: [45, 41]
  39. Undercity - In the middle of Undercity, above ground: [66, 38]
    While in Undercity, use the [Lunar Festival Invitation] to port to Moonglade - (note: This is totally doable. The greater moonlight required for the scroll is above ground before the elevators to Undercity proper. The guards appear to have been removed. However, Horde players may well interrupt transport - if using the moonlight here proves impossible, hearth and use one from a neutral or Alliance capital)

    Pointer flight on 32x32.pngFly to Everlook
  40. Winterspring - In Everlook: [60, 50]
  41. Winterspring - Ruins of Kel'Theril, southwest of Everlook: [53, 57]

    Pointer flight on 32x32.pngFly to Thargad's Camp in Desolace
  48. Maraudon - When you enter Maraudon, early on you will have three choices of direction. Take the center choice, which leads to the Earth Song Falls Portal into the instance; it's the shortest run through the tunnels leading to the instance, and the shortest run inside the instance itself (see maps linked at left). When you approach the end, jump into the water by Princess Theradras and Rotgrip. Swim to the east and head up the ramp (you will have to pass through a smallish archway). Turn right and head up a 2nd ramp. The Elder will be in front of you. To exit quickly, join a group with someone - it doesn't matter where they are - and leave group. You will be teleported to the graveyard in Desolace after one minute.
  49. Feralas - Dire Maul, in the Arena in the center of the Broken Commons, outside the instance: [62, 31]
  50. Feralas - Lariss Pavilion, North East of Camp Mojache: [76, 37]
