WAR: Dwarf Starting Area Quest Guide

MMORPG.com Correspondent John Lisenby writes this guide to quests in the Dwarf starting zone in Mythic Entertainment's Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.

The Dwarf starting area is exactly what you would expect. A huge complex deep within a mountain called Mordin's Anvil. A place where the Dwarf race feel at home the most. Though it is not completely safe. It is being attacked by the green skins and the Dwarves seem to be holding on to part of the once huge underground city. Here you will start your quests and begin your adventures as part of the proud Dwarf race. I have not included any storyline with the quests as there just isn't enough room in one article. But you will find the quest, co-ordinates, and notes on each one. Also I have included any extra material I ran across while doing these quests. But the main focus of the article is the quests themselves.
