I just decided that I would simply finish leveling my hunter the hard way, but when i can get heirlooms ill make a warrior and follow your guide to 80. I definitly want an 80 warrior for cataclysm... seeing as worgen warrior is going to be a crazy tank! By the way, is using heirlooms with your guides ok? And what class should I be for a tank? I will obviously be switching to worgen anyway but i would prefer best tanking until then. Thanks Jame!
If you queue as a healer - take care to always have a stack of water of appropriate level. You can buy it at an innkeeper for next to nothing, but remember that it will become too low-lvl for you very fast, so you need to buy new water every 10-20 levels. Alternatively, you can buy a stack of every tier of water in Stormwind, and just always carry it with you. Another alternative, if you see a mage - always ask him (politely) to create a table for you. Grab 2-3 stacks so you have extra for the next runs.  

I personally like it but I have healed for 11 years. This will actually be the first xpac where I actually main a DPS (UDK) ever in my history of WoW. The thing I actually really like about pally is they have an Azerite trait that gives the whole group a mini stampeding roar whenever you use golden pony. That is a great utility for a class to have. If I decide to not do UDK I will be doing HPal because it’s the one healer I have never mained.

He goes on to say that the changes went too far, and that they have "no desire" to keep moving in that direction. The problem is they don't know how to fix it quite yet. Hazzikostas understandably says that they don't want to make blanket changes that miss the "real source of the problem," which is exacerbated at levels 60-80 when the leveling curve gets particularly punishing. The sky isn't completely falling though based on data: Hazzikostas says that leveling is 15% longer. In the short term they want to increase experience gained at these levels to soften that blow.

Even though the guide was developed with a hunter, the guide can be followed by any class.  Except you have to do your class's quests which aren't a whole lot.  I do have full intention to make my guide friendly with all classes in the future by listing all of their steps as well.  There will be a toggle that allows you to show which class's steps you want to see in the guide.  But this is coming later.
The most recent run I did on my hunter, I never set foot in Ghostlands, nor did I need to fully complete Dustwallow Marsh. There are a LOT of quest lines in each of these zones that might not be available unless you progress and complete story-line quests in order. Northern Barrens and Andorhal are especially bad in this regard, but many zones you can easily miss out on a lot of quests if you don't do a vital quest. So make sure you keep an eye on the minimap for quest ! indicators.

The publisher already commented on the game’s leveling speed following the launch of the Battle for Azeroth 8.0 pre-patch earlier this month. “Since the pre-patch we’ve made a large number of hotfixes and changes to leveling content, and are continuing to find and fix bugs wherever possible”, Blizzard wrote. “The intention was never to make leveling slower than it was in 7.3.5.”
jame, addon version or your guide is F$%&ING AWESOME, THANK YOU. there is a part in the first section of the guide where im instructed to take shindrell's not to kayneth stillwind, but there is no instruction to pick up that quest on the way through astranaar, if i find anything else like this ill let you know, love your guide, thanks for taking the time to put it together!!
Gold-making blog Just My Two Copper suggests that enchanting will be quite the money making profession during the initial phase of Patch 5.3. This is because with players racking up new shield heirloom items and new PvP weapons and cloaks, and the tendency of PvP fans to max out every potential stat in their gear to win their matches, they will spend a pretty penny on Enchanting boosts. Just My Two Copper expects direct enchanting fees as well as the costs of Enchanting materials to rise during the start of the patch.
Gold sellers would steal players’ account information using keylogging malware and phishing scams, so they could strip characters and harvest everything of value. They used stolen accounts and the accounts of players who had paid for “power leveling” services to “bot” for resources, using automated cheat programs to harvest resources that they could quickly liquidate on the in-game auction house. This caused the price for traded goods to crash, which impacted the entire economy.
Some people have made arguments that quest blues can sometimes be more powerful than heirlooms, especially with sockets. I'm not convinced. The simple fact that you never have to even look at quest rewards will save a non-insignificant amount of time over the course of leveling. Also of consideration is the value of enchanted gear never having to be re-enchanted.
Ravager – Ravager replaces Bladestorm and does about an Execute amount of damage less than Bladestorm. That may seem like a lot. However, one thing people forget is while Ravager is active you get to use other spells at the same time. Where as with Bladestorm all you can do is Bladestorm. So, while Ravager is active you can turn on Sweeping Strikes and use a Colossus Smash, Mortal Strike, and Execute by the time your Bladestorm would have ended. In the end, you will do thousands of damage more.
Again it breaks down to personal preference. I didn’t have an issue doing them at 120 on the toons I did them on. I felt like they took you out of the way when I just wanted to finish the zones. Too each his own. I liked it because I would finish the quest then be right there at the hubs for the quest on the new continent after I’ve finished all the quest on the first continent.

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.
I dont know if this exist already, if it does I couldnt find one, but it would be nice to have a guide with the location of all daily quest broken down by Alliance, Horde, Faction, Neutral, etc. I know there can be variable quest for things like Fishing and Cooking but just having the location for those quest givers would be great. If it were a stand alone addon that would be even better!
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.

Enchants. I honestly wasn't 100% certain which enchants were best, since scaling has screwed up a lot of things. IMO, just pick the enchant for each armor slot that has the highest bonus without level restrictions. The exception is that you'll definitely want Mark of the Hidden Satyr for your neck piece, and probably Elemental Force for your weapon. Both of these proc consistently and strongly across all levels.
