For your tank... I'm assuming you meant which race should you be, not which class, since you seem to want to be a warrior! Well, if you were Horde side I'd recommend Tauren for the health buff. But honestly, I *never* pick a race based on the racial features - only based on the flavor. If you are going Alliance side, I am quite partial to dwarf warriors myself but pick whatever seems most fun to you!
First: Azeroth Auto Pilot is a fantastic addon for those who just want to get the leveling done and have 0 desire to read text and watch cutscenes. I have submitted a lot of feedback to the developer over the course of its creation and after doing a play through on both Horde and Alliance I can strongly recommend this addon. For those who want to watch cutscenes, I am somewhat positive that there is an option to not skip cutscenes. I strongly recommend trying this out once BFA launches because even if you don’t skip the cutscenes the proper pathing and skipping of quest text will save you a lot time. I would like to note that the only zone where I encountered an issue was in Vol’dun where the pathing seemed a little off from what would make logical sense, but I have submitted that feedback to the dev and hopefully he has corrected it. THIS ADDON IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO USE IT YOU DON’T HAVE TO. IM JUST GIVING PEOPLE INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO LEVEL ALTS/HAVE PLAYED THROUGH THE STORY BEFORE/OR JUST WANT TO GET LEVELING DONE ASAP.
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.
For a new player, this will only break the immersion and spoil the 'story' of the various great storylines found throughout the game. Veteran players may want to level fast but still, revisit old places to re-experience the game through fresh eyes. How is a player to level quickly without breaking the immersion of the game? Level smart. There are ways to quickly level that apply to any area of the game.
Footholds into enemy territories can be done as you grow in levels and should be completed before reaching Level 120. Take the time after completing your first zone to do your first foothold. Similar to how your initial zone selection was largely irrelevant, this selection is, as well. Simply pick one and complete it to earn your Mission Table second champion. Send your champions out on missions, recruit troops, and then head back out to quest in your second zone selection.
The WoW token is very simple: You pay Blizzard $20 for a token, and then you can sell the token on the in-game auction house. A player with gold can buy a token and redeem it for a month of WoW subscription time or for $15 of Battle.net balance, which is like a gift card credit that can be redeemed in WoW or other Blizzard games such as Hearthstone and Overwatch. You get their gold; they get your cash, or at least most of it.
Something to keep in mind as well is that this will make enchanting materials more valuable, since it is likely most players will now simply scrap their boe greens instead of getting them disenchanted. Also redundant dungeon/raid gear can be scrapped rather than traded to the (guild) enchanter in the run. Less stuff gets disenchanted, meaning there will be less ecnhanting materials, meaning their value will rise. All the more reason to DE rather than scrap as an ecnhanter.
