Getting a Head Start in Wintergrasp
Here is a small trick to give you a head start in the battle for Wintergrasp. Not only can you just get one of the dailies out of the way, you can also be one of the first players to pilot a ground vehicle in battle.
All you have to do is to fly into the Wintergrasp Zone before the battle begins. Anytime with less than 5 minutes til battle is a good time. Grab the dailies in the zone, and head towards one of the bridges towards the south towers.
You will see a two Horde NPCs fighting two Alliance NPCs. Help your faction’s guard out and kill the opposing NPC. (No Mercy for the Merciless) Horde Players: 1/10. Notice you will also be promoted to Corporal, and be given the ability to pilot catapults. Too bad you lose that promotion right away.
You can get the quest done before the battle even begins. Now you will want to be the first player to get their catapult driving license. The trick is, to wait by the bridge, near one of your faction’s would be factories, and right when the battle starts, kill the NPC, and you will be promoted to Corporal.
Since the battle is active, this time you will keep your promotion, and you can go to the factory, and charge into battle with the first catapult. You’ll be in your new ride, while players are still zoning in from Dalaran.
You will now have a head start at taking down the Fortress walls if you are attacking, or head start on taking down the lower towers if you are defending.
