WoW Classic: How to complete Southsea Shakedown

Southsea Shakedown is a quest that requires you to slay 40 pirates of different types in Tanaris. The quest can be obtained from Security Chief Bilgewhizzle in Gadgetzan at level 40. The quest rewards you with a hefty amount of experience and a choice of two uncommon items.

The pirates you need to kill are located in Lost Rigger Cove, a pirate hideout south of Gadgetzan. To reach this cove, travel down the east coast of Tanaris until you find a small tunnel (68.5, 41.4) that leads to the cove. The pirates you need to kill are:

  • 10 Southsea Pirates
  • 10 Southsea Freebooters
  • 10 Southsea Dock Workers
  • 10 Southsea Swashbucklers

The Southsea Pirates and Freebooters can be found in the front part of the cove, near the entrance. The Southsea Dock Workers and Swashbucklers can be found deeper into the cove, near the ships and docks. The pirates are around level 44 to 46, and some of them have ranged attacks, so be careful and bring some healing potions or a healer with you.

The quest can be completed solo or in a group, but it might be easier and faster to do it with some friends, as the pirates are quite numerous and respawn quickly. You can also combine this quest with other quests in the area, such as:

  • WANTED: Andre Firebeard
  • WANTED: Caliph Scorpidsting
  • Stoley’s Shipment
  • Screecher Spirits

Once you have killed enough pirates, return to Security Chief Bilgewhizzle in Gadgetzan to turn in the quest and claim your reward. You can choose between two items:

  • Southsea Mojo Boots: Cloth boots that increase Intellect and Spirit, useful for casters.
  • Southsea Head Bucket: Plate helmet that increases Strength, Stamina, and Defense, useful for tanks.

Southsea Shakedown is one of the most experience-heavy quests in WoW Classic, and it can help you level up faster in your 40s. It is also a fun and challenging quest that lets you fight against a horde of pirates and loot their treasures. If you are looking for a quest that offers both excitement and rewards, Southsea Shakedown is the one for you.
