Gorgrond zone map

The Gorgrond storyline is the level-up experience in Gorgrond on Draenor. The Gorgrond storyline is unique in that the decision of which building gets built at the player's Garrison outpost (either Highpass or Beastwatch for the Alliance or Horde, respectively) affects how the rest of the zone storyline plays out. The lumber mill option will send players to the jungle overgrowth of southern Gorgrond, while the sparring arena option instead sends players to the brutal wastelands of northern Gorgrond.

Whichever chain does not get chosen will unlock a number of bonus objectives that take place where players would have been directed to quest. So, even if players pick the Sparring Arena, they still have the option to complete some quest objectives in Tangleheart and Evermorn Springs.

The tracking achievement for the Gorgrond storyline is  [Putting the Gore in Gorgrond]. Don't forget about the vignettes in Gorgrond either. Additionally, there are eight rare-elite mobs whose death is required for  [Gorgrond Monster Hunter].
