Fourth, beginning in Mists of Pandaria with the Halfhill farm, and continuing in Warlords of Draenor with various garrison buildings that produced resources, Blizzard has been making trade goods more plentiful and easier to obtain. In Legion, herbs, fish and enchanting materials were so abundant that a very small population of gatherers could supply more raw materials than the economy could consume.
You earn a large rested experience bonus when you log out in this rest areas. This gives you a massive 200-percent bonus to experience gain from most actions (though experience from quests isn’t included). The amount of rested experience you earn increases the longer you’re logged off, and your experience bar will be blue (instead of purple) while you have the bonus.
If you prospect your own Ores, usually you will get a lot of [Lesser Moonstone] too, but even if you don't prospect the Ores, sometimes 2 Lesser Moonstone is cheaper than one Moss Agate. So get the recipe [Design: Amulet of the Moon] and use up all your Lesser Moonstone. This recipe turns yellow at 140, you might need to make more than 30 of these.
In Legion, some of the dungeons include the Black Rook Hold, a max-level dungeon in Val’Sharah that once served as an elven fortress but has been corrupted by a malevolent force. If you decide to quest in Stormheim, you can also try to clear the Halls of Valor, which lets you take on the Vrykul God-King and vanquish the pure Val’kyr that are superior to those found in Northrend.
Before anyone asks - yes there are archived copies of old addon versions both on our github repository and on several of the addon sites we use, and these will continue to be available after Cataclysm comes out, so you'll be able to get those old files if you really want them. I'm not going to bother making these more easily accessible unless you give me a very good reason. "I'm on a private server and I need them since we didn't upgrade to Cataclysm" is a BAD reason - and it's illegal.
This whole affair has caused myriad arguments with the community, with some old-timers noting that the time-to-level increase is a joke compared to Vanilla, and newcomers sharing their point of view that World of Warcraft is slower than a lot of other games on the market. I can certainly understand both mentalities, but given that the leveling system is sort of a token process now and is already frustrating for a lot of players -- seeing it shaken up this much can't be good for the game.
Edit 20 It’s been a week since this post and a lot of people are still reaching out to me with questions which is fine. I have had a few different people reach out to me to help make YouTube videos based off this guide and more info in BFA which I’m more than willing to do. Whoever gets the videos up first I will link them here for you guys to enjoy.
