This morning while I was brushing my teeth I suddenly remembered about this quest that I always make sure to complete whenever I'm leveling an alt through Stranglethorn. It's a quick and easy quest but often missed by players.
Here's a good map of Stranglethorn Vale that shows all the important areas:
The quest is called Message in a Bottle and it has 2 parts. To start the first part, keep searching for green bottles at the water edge along Wild Shore, the beach on the southern and south-eastern tip of Stranglethorn. Using a bottle will give you a gray note sometimes but your goal is to obtain a Carefully Folded Note which starts the next part of the quest. Make sure to look for these bottles when you're on another quest in the area, don't go to that beach specifically for this quest. This will save you some time.
To get to the next part, cross the water towards the south-east until you hit that large island called Jaguero Isle. There you will find a hot Tauren chick who hands you the next part of the quest, Message in a Bottle. For this, you just need to kill King Kong... erm... Mukla who's a big gorilla on the other side of the island.
Kill him, get your reward and that's it. Quick and easy XP. In the old days of WoW classic, this gorilla was elite and pretty hard to solo at that level. Now, there's no excuse for skipping this quest if you are in the area.
