Most of the time you spend leveling will involve questing and slaying monsters, but there’s also a lot of travel. Travel earns you little experience (you do gain a bit for discovering new areas), so it’s wise to keep travel to a minimum. The new level scaling system, which scales zones to your level within a preset range, helps with that. You can choose what zones you want to experience and stick with them until you finish their quests.
We have no idea what implications this might have and whether or not it even indicates anything, since Patch 8.2 is still in testing and a Tuesday launch is more than unlikely due to Essence tuning and Azshara's Eternal Palace, which is supposedly coming shortly after launch. Blizzard said they wouldn't be delaying the new raid like they did with Battle of Dazar'alor.
Dugi’s Guide has released their Cataclysm bonus which is an in game talent advisor. Finally and actual bonus worth talking about; or so I thought. Once on the inside of Dugi’s Guide members area the truth was revealed. The talent advisor bonus is just the 3rd party addon “Talenteds”! Using TomTom add on for navigation is already a large negative in my books, now offering a free addons as a bonus. Dugi, Dugi, Dugi.. – not cool. I’m tempted to take another point away from Dugi but that would be my personal opinion.
Our old friend Quest Helper isn’t updated for the client, but there’s !Questie and MonkeyQuest to help you track available quests and their objectives. The biggest challenge to leveling up in the beta is searching for where the quest objectives are, so if you’re looking to hit the level 30 cap fast — or just the level 5 cap in today’s stress test — you’ll need one of these.
