    Where and How to Join

    Nordenwatch is located in the Empire vs. Chaos pairing, but you can queue for the scenario from any Tier 1 zone. To sign up for the scenario, click the icon that is located at approximately 11 o'clock on your mini-map. This opens the scenario queue interface. You can then pick scenarios to join solo or as a group. You can also join all available scenarios with a single click if you choose. Note that when you use the Join All button the scenario code slightly biases you towards the scenario(s) located in the same pairing as the zone you are physically located in.

    Quests: While you can queue for this scenario from any Tier 1 zone in the game, there is one major reason to consider queuing from the Empire v. Chaos pairing. In the Nordland war camp for either realm, you can pick up at least 2 quests that are completed by participating in Nordenwatch. One is for simply participating in the scenario, and the other is for killing 15 players. You do not have to get the killing blow yourself - someone on your team (not the whole scenario team, your specific team) must get the kill. Doing both of these quests is a couple thousand extra experience and a nice chunk of silver. If you are near the top of the tier in rank and do not want to level out, you may choose to stop turning in the quests and save the turn in for after you hit rank 12.

    If Nordenwatch scenarios are "popping" slowly for you, then you might be able to simply fly back to your Nordland war camp in between scenarios to turn in the quests and pick them back up again. There is no limit to the number of times you can complete these quests.
