Cooking benefits all classes, especially melee and hunters (it is a free source of food). Until higher levels, the benefits it provides are almost exclusively stamina buffs. While more stamina is always nice, cooking is not essential to leveling. Considering the time investment required, if you pick up skinning then cooking would absolutely be a wise skill to level prior to hitting your level cap, as beasts often drop meat useful for skilling up.

Common methods of power leveling include doing only those quests which are most efficient in terms of experience over time, and analyzing the quests in a given zone so as to do them in the most efficient order possible. Remember, the idea of power leveling is speed and efficiency--you may wish to obtain an addon that will show you how much experience per hour you are gaining to test your techniques. Additionally, ensure your character's talent build is crafted for maximum endurance. You want as little downtime (walking, drinking, eating, crafting, typing, etc.) as possible.
I remember when World of Warcraft first came out, and it was actually fun to do some quests, and discover new territories, and kill a couple hundred bears or murlocs or what have you, and get all excited when you got a new level and got to pick new skills or talents, or finally got to wear a wizard hat or get a mount. But come on, how many times can you really do that before it gets old. No one is fooled, Blizzard. There are like 5 quests that get repeated over and over, just with different beasts to kill, items to gather, etc. I just made my Death Knight, and I played for only a couple hours, doing some quests, testing my spells, before already getting bored with the leveling process. And this is with a brand new expansion and an obvious effort by Blizzard to make the quests interesting, like the Eye of Acherus and the stealing the horse ones. Yeah those quests were kind of cool. Enough to make me want to quest for hours and days until I get from level 55 to 80? Nope.
Before there was ingame WoW leveling guides, there was just eBook PDF leveling guides & what you paid for was the questing path.  As far asWoW leveling guides have come with fancy ingame user interfaces, the questing path is still the core.  Both WoW guides spend endless hours researching their questing path to find the fastest way to reach lvl cap.  It is pretty hard to deem one faster than the other as both produce extremely fast lvling times.  The reason I wanted to touch on this area is to confirm that both are really well planned and have seemingly very little difference.
Research instances appropriate for your level online. Running instanced content is the single most important thing you can do, at least up through level 85. Instead of focusing on questing, focus on dungeons. A quick search for “WoW dungeons by level” or similar will help you find the right instances for your level. Keep in mind too that many instances are faction specific, so make sure to check Horde or Alliance specific lists!
Another part I like about Dugi’s leveling guide is the ease of use. You’ll be given the guide in different forms so that you can find the one that fits you. For those that like to have a printed guide alongside them he provides you with a printable and image heavy version of the guide. A very powerful system Dugi uses is his in-game leveling addon that permits you to play without having to take your focus with the game itself. The addon adds a tiny window for your World of Warcraft game that tells you what area of the guide you’re at and how to proceed next.
As the first major content release of Battle for Azeroth, patch 8.1: Tides of Vengeance is adding a number of new ways to gear up, as well as increasing the item level of rewards from existing activities. Tides of Vengeance goes live on December 11th and will add most of the new content, but Mythic+ and PvP Season 2 will not start until the new raid, Battle of Dazar'alor, releases in January, at which time the item level thresholds will increase to the new Titanforge cap of 425.
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.
