Before you get started, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the general layout of the zone and the locations of the major hubs and other points of interest.
The Moors of Ykesha is the only new overland zone in the 2008 expansion, The Shadow Odyssey. The quests here start at level 76 and go as high as 85. There is solo and artisan content, as well as Heroic content in the Shadow Odyssey Missions series.

IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING!!! Do NOT use a Gnomecannon while mounted on a Glider mount! The mounts glide flaps will slow the speed of the barrel and drop you short of the safety netting (you will fall off the cliff)! Always dismount before activating the mechanism! And, as always, please keep all appendages inside the barrel until the ride has come to a complete stop!
