“The biggest struggle of overhauls like item scaling is being able to exhaustively test it,” he said. “You can’t expect any group of a few hundred people to go in and hit every piece of content that’s ever been developed over the past 15 years of World of Warcraft. That is difficult and challenging to do. What we did was listen to a lot of feedback from the PTR, what those changes looked like there. “The community is a great resource for helping us understand what we missed, and we were able to develop technology to be agile about fixing the problems very quickly in a live environment when we did come across them. We did have a few hiccups when we launched the patch in terms of scaling issues, but a lot of those were addressed rather quickly and that’s due to the technology we’ve developed to hot-fix our servers and almost anything in the game without down-time.”
And more people are buying gold with the expansion turnover; token prices fell from around 207,000 gold in mid-July to around 185,000 gold right before Battle for Azeroth launched. They’ve fallen to around 150,000 gold in the first few days of the expansion. That’s still five times as much as they were worth two years ago, but it’s a 25 percent drop from where they once were. This means that significantly more people are interested in buying gold now than a few weeks ago.
"The way the glyph market works on most realms is that there are a couple of people willing to put in the long hours who will have every available glyph posted profitably, and undercut within minutes of being undercut. They all reduce the price very minimally when undercutting, and the "competition" isn't about price, it's about who can relist more frequently.
The zone you start in isn't under your control, in as much as it's pre-selected for you based on your race. But for leveling purposes we want to make scaling work for us as much as possible. That means sticking to the lower level zones. Even though scaling will increase the level of the quests and mobs in those zones, the layout and design of them is built for a player with no mount. So you'll blaze through them and gain more exp/hour than higher level zones which assume you DO have a mount. 

Make sure you have the two Flight-Path toys purchased, as this can save you time. It won't have EVERY flight path, but will have major locations for faster travel if you need to switch zones entirely(which you will). If you buy the toys on one faction, it unlocks for the other faction as well. So don't spend double the gold! These toys can be found at the heirloom vendor(Undercity for Horde, Ironforge for Alliance)
Even though the value of gold relative to real money plunged during the Legion expansion, we didn’t see corresponding increases in auction house commodity prices, with the exceptions of big-ticket vanity items like TCG mounts. Consumable prices in gold were actually stable or falling during the same period that the value of gold relative to the dollar was plunging by more than 80 percent.

The zones in Battle for Azeroth are littered with treasures and rare spawns that give the same amount of XP as quests. With Zygor's Leveling guide these points of interest are displayed directly on your map and can be clicked at anytime to add them underneath your current guide step. The guide will then switch focus to the POI, direct you to its completion, and tell you how to complete it.


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.
Selling gold for cash was, for a long time, against the game’s rules. But that didn’t stop large, sophisticated operations from springing up to take advantage of the opportunity to make real-world cash. The outfits that sold gold to players started out by paying foreign workers very low wages to endlessly grind the game, but they later started procuring their gold through quicker and more disruptive methods.
Island Expeditions are a new idea that digs into the island vibe brought in by Battle for Azeroth and allows players to team up in groups of three to venture out onto various islands to gather all-important Azerite while fighting against enemies on the island and completing quests. The twist is that Island Expeditions are also a race against the opposite faction — whether it's three AI characters or three real players is up to you — but you may have to do a little player vs. player (or fake PvP) if you happen to run into them.

Update: The reason for less experience from gathering is due to how Blizzard revamped professions and broke them down by expansion. In order to get full exp from gathering you'll simply need to find a profession trainer for the relevant expansion. (WoD you just mine or herb the first one ypu come across and the game gives you a scroll for learning WoD gathering).

These two expansions are virtually identical in terms of exp/h. I personally favor Mount Hyjal, and think it's very slightly faster. But if you know Jade Forest well you can just as easily keep up there. Ultimately you'll end up doing both anyway, so it's mostly academic. Every time I've tested Valley of Four Winds or Deepholme, or any other zone in MOP/CATA's level range, they were worse exp/h. You should not even need to complete both zones to ding 91, so it's more important to just pick one and go.

Gold in WoW has value based on the time it takes a player to earn it. The various methods of farming gold, such as growing herbs, yield maybe 20,000 gold per hour. That means at a price of 100,000 gold, a token represents about five hours of grinding, or offers a wage of $3 per hour. The idea of gold being worth a certain amount per hour is a useful way of framing this discussion, in fact.
The Horde vs Alliance rivalry continues in Battle for Azeroth and the conflict behind now get more opportunities to a head.

Hey guys. So as the title suggests im new to wow. Im currently leveling my first character, a fury warrior, and was just wondering are there any guides out there for leveling your first character ? Ive seen a bunch of leveling guides but most of them are made for people who already have a max level character and can be confusing. So I was just wondering is there a guide out there that can show me how to level my first character ? Thanks beforehand I appreciate it!
In 2015, Blizzard started letting players buy gold from each other using WoW Tokens, to try to control the process and mitigate damage. “Time is money, friend — but sometimes one is harder to come by than the other,” Blizzard says on the official page. “Now World of Warcraft players can use the WoW Token in exchange for game time or Battle.net Balance!” 

Level with a pet if you can because it will help keep you safe. If your pet is tanking all of the damage from the enemies you’re fighting, you won’t have to. The other reason is that pets are easier and cheaper to heal than you are. If you don’t have a pet, make sure you know how to use your defensive abilities. You can’t level quickly if you are dying all the time.

“I think [the levelling experience] is a pretty hotly debated topic internally, about how to handle that,” Dawson said in a recent interview with Gamesindustry.biz. “I think we recognize that we’re not giving new players as good an experience as we can, and we do want to focus on how to make that experience better. There’s 15 years of content that people should have the option to do if they want to, but we also want the ability for players to play with their friends quickly. That’s why we developed things like the boost [which automatically raises one character to an appropriate level for the current expansion], which you get if you purchase the game itself. The scaling tech was also a way to help us do that, and you can sort of choose your own path through expansions and story content.”
This is also the reason why when I read in WoW forums of people skipping guide sections, due to being too low level I'm not agree and start ranting about it: it'll be a mess syncronizing with the guide and I've seen many people complaining about missing quests or accusing the guide for being innacurate, but not realizing that was their fault since they're skipping and missing a lot of quest chain requirement. Of course this apply if you're following a guide, believe me, it's very frustrating when you remain stuck in a guide section due to the reasons I've mentioned, more than doing grey quests (but they allow to be perfectly in sync with the guide) and goiing here and there to get the pre-requisite quests.
My toon was a monk, a class that gets extra experience for an hour at a time. I picked at it more than I have in the past, so I benefitted more from the 150 percent "rested" experience bonus. If I wanted to run a dungeon for quests, I fired up a high-level character on a second account and dragged my little toon through them. And having leveled dozens of characters to 100 and 110, I knew every zone and every objective.
If you bought Legion and have no desire to go through old content, good news! The new expansion comes with a free boost to level 100 for one character. You can buy these boosts from the in-game store whenever you want, but they normally cost $60, so savor this free one. Use it for a class that you are confident you will enjoy. As a fresh level 100 character, you will be able to immediately begin the quest that takes you the Broken Isles, the new region where Legion takes place.
Si vous êtes du côté de la Horde, Nous vous recommandons fortement d'également prendre 40 Kit de planeur Goblin, pour vous faciliter la vie. Les consommables ne sont pas très cher en ce moment et il est donc conseillé de faire vos stocks. Vous pouvez également demander à un mage de vous fabriquer un peu de nourriture avant de débuter votre grinding, afin de ne pas gâcher votre propre nourriture.

Fully rested experience (this is the blue color your experience bar takes instead of purple) grants 200% more experience per kill. Quest experience does not work the same as mob experience. Instead of just using the rested bonus, quest experience pushes the bar further upwards extending the rested bonus. Say if half your experience bar is blue. If you turn in 10 quests all at one the normal experience from them all could boost a character a full level. Unlike mobs where the experience gain will use up said bonus - the quests merely 'push' the bar further. Doing this could net you a level and still have the 200% bonus for mob kills applying to milk the rest bonus.
Also note that power leveling is sometimes used to refer to paying someone else to level your character to cap as fast as possible (i.e. they power level for you); a distinction used by Blizzard is to refer to the paid leveling as "power leveling service." This behavior is against Blizzard's Terms of Service. Power leveling yourself, which this article covers, is perfectly acceptable.
Some quests in my guide are marked as "SKIP" and colored in red.  These quests are simply either too hard to solo or not worth the XP/time and are skipped.  My guide will only list SKIPPED quests if the quest is a direct follow up after completing a quest, not one that you have to click the NPC again to get it.  If you hover over the skipped quests, it will give info on why it is skipped in the guide (unless that info is already listed directly in the guide text).
Most classes in World of Warcraft start at first level, but Death Knights and Demon Hunters are exceptions. They start at level 55 and 98, respectively. This alone can shave a huge chunk of time from your leveling experience. Of course, it only works if you want to play a Death Knight or Demon Hunter, but they’re both solid classics that can dish out damage or tank in a group.

And the methods that gold sellers were using to harvest gold were wreaking havoc on the game. There was no way to stop the selling of gold as long as there was demand among the player base to pay for gold with cash. But there was a way to kill off these parasitic and predatory businesses that were involved in selling illicit gold: In April 2015, Blizzard took gold selling legit with the WoW Token.

A much smaller number of players are producing surplus quantities of those valuable goods and providing them to other players. And all the gold generated by the activities of those players who ignore the grindy professions and get what they need from the auction house is flowing to the players who are making all those goods available on demand to the rest of the community. Most of these auction house merchants are sitting on a lot of gold, but the number of people who want to make cash this way is relatively low.
 ":"  -  Any time a step ends in a ":" instead of a "." means that the next step is part of the current step you are on.  This generally means the next step should be done while working on the current step.  This means every "start working on" or "continue working on" will end in a ":".  But this is used with other occasions as well, so keep this in mind.

You may be starting out ...or this may be your next alt to walk along the world of Azeroth. But while some players of "World of Warcraft" may wish to enjoy the ride and level at their pace, many others want to get to level cap as soon as possible. Many questing guides exist for this reason. Many guides show exact routes and quest information to hit each area as quickly and efficiently as possible.
If you level with friends Prot would probably be the way to go so you could pull and face tank the packs. I leveled 2 pallies both ret on beta and had 0 issues. Selfless healer and wake of ashes work absolute wonders. I leveled a bit as prot and just felt like I did 0 damage. I leveled solo so I don’t know about the xp fall off but I would assume it’s the same as legion.
