I'm with that guy, I'll probably pick whichever zone I want and not follow a set path for the questing experience itself (like the part about not picking up the treasures, if I see a shiny I'm going for it lol), but I'll come back to this post for the gearing/rep-gain stuff. Thanks for taking the time to type it out. Also the bit about scrapping gear instead of selling it was something I hadn't thought of so thanks.
Like most of those experienced players, I had all the benefits, including a full set of heirloom armor, which helps to boost the experience my character would get (though that bump was reduced at the same time the other changes were made.) I had a guild, the ability to fly in every zone, and pets and toys that made a pile of things more convenient. My new character started at level 20, as all allied races do.
Special note: At 110 it's almost certainly worthwhile to go and immediately get your Heart of Azeroth and first piece of Azerite gear from the BfA opening quest. It doesn't take long and provides pretty high power levels. I'd then return to Legion quests until 111 or even 112, since the power of these items will increase your kill speed significantly over the scaled enemies of BfA content.
I had multiple people ask me why I didn’t do blood or prot for leveling on DK/Pally and the god honest truth is the fact that I know how to play ret and unholy quite well and the limits of the class. I tried leveling as prot and good Christ it felt like I did no damage. If you take selfless healer and wake of ashes you should have 0 issues with leveling as Ret and it is significantly faster. As for Unholy if you take grip of the dead to kite a little, deathpact for healing, and keep up with your Dark Succor (spelling?) procs you will have no issues. I died once as DK and none as pally. The only classes I struggled with a little was WW and Shaman. WW because the aoe felt under-tuned at the time and shaman because they are trash imho.
I've been having a lot of fun throughout World of Warcraft's Legion expansion, but I'm coming from the experience of having played it since the beginning with a heap of high-level characters to romp around with. For many Legion is their first crack at WoW (or their first MMO), and several changes to the leveling system have a lot of people up in arms.
Battle for Azeroth’s War Mode puts you into PvP mode and grants you 10 percent extra experience. But since the two factions will mostly level in separate zones entirely, you should almost definitely have this on when you’re leveling. That said, if you start getting killed by random PvP players consistently, stop using it. Although 10 percent is nice, it’s not worth dying every few minutes for.
Heirlooms. At the bare minimum you make sure all the armor pieces upgraded to 110, since this is the lion's share of your experience increase. Neck and Ring upgrades are secondary, but still important due to being able to enchant them. Trinkets can't be enchanted, but you'll want them at max as well, if only to save time by not having to worry about replacing them as you level.
As you continue to push through end-game content and you raise your reputations with various groups, you unlock more quests that send you to the opposing faction's continent where you generally try to mess with them, gather intel on their movements, and, of course, kill a whole bunch of them. These quest lines are fun, but generally pretty short and don't actually propel you through much of the three opposing zones.
EXCEPTION: If you have Mining and only use Jewelcrafting to craft stone statues (for additional in-combat healing), then this may be a useful tradeskill. However, like Engineering above, it should not be a leveling focus and should only be used to assist with power leveling. Doing any more than this will become costly and should not be undertaken during the power-leveling process.
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.
All the things that kept trade goods cheap while the value of gold was falling are no longer true in the new expansion. Most players are working on gearing up their main characters right now, and it will be a while before people earn the levels and reputations on secondary characters to serve the markets for high-end trade goods, so there are fewer crafters competing with each other to serve a community that is swollen with returning players.
Some players like to try to game the auction house to make gold by buying things for low prices and crafting them into more valuable things, or simply reselling them at higher prices. You can also use large amounts of gold to buy special luxury items like very expensive vendor mounts that carry portable auction houses and repair vendors. Sometimes you can find special mounts that were exclusive to the Warcraft collectible trading card game that was discontinued in 2013, though many of the most desirable ones, like the Spectral Tiger and the Giant Rooster, are very rarely sold on most servers, and go for the maximum price of 10 million gold.
If you already have a high level character or a friend willing to give you gold then you can purchase Heirloom items. These items are bound to account and are accessible through the Heirlooms tab using Shift+P. The benefits of these Heirloom items is that they scale with your level keeping your gear up to date without you having to worry about upgrades, and they provide a significant XP bonus.
Once again, as soon as you hit 70 - I recommend to go and learn faster flying. This speeds up your questing A LOT, and is worth the time and gold. It will cost 4500 if you go to the capitol, or 5000 if you prefer Shattrath/Dalaran, because you will not have reputation with them at that point. This price will sadly be above what a totally new character can afford, if you don't have any Main. But you should go and buy flying as soon as you have enough money.
If you come to G2G.com by google "buy gold wow" or “wow gold sell" or "buy wow gold offgamers" or "how to make money playing mmo games" or "Return to Karazhan" or "the Armies of Legionfall" or "world of warcraft usa price gaming" or "trust webs selling gold mmo games" or "Broken Shore" or "Cathedral of Eternal Night" or "wow gold canada", then you are at the right place for the cheapest wow gold!
After about two weeks, the extreme volatility of the first few days has subsided. Prices fluctuated between 87,000 and 91,000 gold over the Feb 18-20 weekend, but intraday price variance continues to be high relative to historical standards, and it's still unclear whether these prices are sustainable in the long term, or whether they reflect the temporary impact of a handful of players dumping lots of gold.
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.
