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.
Determine the gear stats and armor type you need for your new character. For example, a paladin requires Strength as their main stat, and heavy armor (the armor type) will scale as the character scales if they are initially unable to wear heavy armor due to being a lower level. Your optimal heirloom gear set will feature the same main stat as your starting gear.
