Fly to Ironforge and turn in Stormpike's Deciphering. Get Ironband Wants You!

Fly to Stormwind and turn in The Perenolde Tiara and Return to Milton at the Stormwind Keep.
Also, get In Search of the Temple, from Brohann Caskbelly in the southeastern part of The Dwarven District.

Set your Hearthstone to Stormwind.

STOP! Before you head out flying, make sure to get these items from the Auction House - they will earn you a lot of experience points in the next zone. If they are unavailable at the auction house, seek out crafters in trade chat. They may seem pricy, but they are worth the gold because the experience boost is substantial. You should be able to afford them even without any gathering professions if you've kept up with selling trade goods on the auction house. If you don't have enough gold at this point, take a look at the Gold Guide section for clever methods of making money - you could have built up hundreds of gold by now!
