Full disclosure on my time with Battle for Azeroth thus far: I leveled a Horde character to 120 and completed all three Zandalar storylines plus put about 20 hours into end-game content. I have also leveled an Alliance character partway through Kul Tiras and completed portions of the Stormsong Valley and Tiragarde Sound storylines. My only experience in Drustavar has been through the eyes of the Horde thus far.
The guide works great (of course expect a) BUT, after reaching 120 there should also be a guide to open and explore the remaining areas. Also, sometimes when multiple objectives are required, the guide forces you to follow in the order the guide prefers and if you don’t the objective is not rewarded. Gotta start catching up on the followers guides also. All in all, the $47 a year in-game guide is well worth it.

Playing through these zones, each with their own unique but interconnected stories and refreshing designs, immediately brought me back to how I felt when I played vanilla World of Warcraft and some of its earliest expansions. Instead of being a hero with near god-like powers like in recent years, players are back to being more grounded adventurers (going on more grounded, but still enticing adventures).
World of Warcraft is an MMORPG title released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2004. The game is another franchise of the popular Warcraft series which has received numerous awards. It is set in a fantasy world of Azeroth where gnomes, dwarves, elves, humans, orcs, undead and other monsters roam the virtual world. Players choose a race, class and profession to play and advance through the game. The game offers both PvE where players can play solo as well as PvP play which involves other players. There are 5 expansions to date, as follows: The Burning Crusade, released in Jan 2007, Wrath of the Lich King, released in Nov 2008, Cataclysm, released in Dec 2010, Mists of Pandaria, released in Sep 2012, and Warlords of Draenor, released in Nov 2014.
Fourth: This is very important; do not vendor the gear you obtain while leveling. There is a new mechanic introduced in BFA called the Scrapper which allows you scrap your gear for trade goods which will be very important for rep and AP grinding (will talk about it more later). Usually after I clear a zone, I will head to the scrap bot and scrap all my greens/blues to clear my bag for the next zone.
By constantly doing quests, you will experience a very different game than if you just level through pure grinding. You'll be out there making a contribution towards the Alliance or the Horde. Doing these quests takes you through the heart of the game's story AND provides the fastest rate of experience. Have fun in World of Warcraft and enjoy developing your hero - your adventures will gain you great reputation amongst the land.
I defintely think at 118 you should go and do all four of these parts. These are required to unlock World Quests and probably take about 60-90 minutes to get through. If you do these whilst levelling (especially all in one go at 118) then when you hit max level you're ready to go on WQs. You can go finish the zones quests at your leisure over the next weeks/months or never even finish them if you don't care about questing.
Stormheim is the zone you want to start it. For some reason Legion treasures are not worth any experience like they are in WoD...except in Stormheim. I haven't been able to find out any reason for this, and it's possible it may get fixed/nerfed at a later date. But for the time being you REALLY want to jump from treasure to treasure to augment your quest experience.

Most heirlooms only work in a limited level range in their default form and must be upgraded to work at higher levels. That costs gold, and you’ll need around 30,000 gold to outfit yourself with a fully upgraded set (counting only those that give you bonus experience). You may need to spend some time on a boosted character to acquire the gold you need to outfit another character with heirlooms, but it’s well worth the effort.
Try to gather up all quests for a dungeon before trying to queue up for it. Preferably pick up dungeon quests as soon as they are available to avoid getting them when you are over leveled. Dungeons themselves reward a good amount of experience due to the grouping of mobs, but the quests on top of that reward great experience and decent questing gear.
Certain locations in World of Warcraft – primarily inns, capital cities, and private instanced zones like your garrison or class order hall – are rest areas. You know you’ve entered one because your character portrait will gain a “Zzz” icon where your level is normally shown, and because you can immediately log out of the game instead of waiting 20 seconds.

Once characters reach the level cap, gameplay turns from leveling to the end-game. This represents the culmination of the leveling process and the beginning of the deeper challenges awaiting max-level characters. While play prior to this point is oriented around accumulating experience and gaining new skills, the end-game represents the polished 'final destination' for players, at which characters are fully developed and ready to tackle the biggest challenges in the game, or to relax and make their own adventure.
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.
