Grinding mobs is tedious and slow. Questing is much faster since you get the massive quest experience in addition to the monster's experience. There is no grinding in this guide - you can go through every single level by simply questing! There is minimal traveling time as the guide leads you visually through maps so you can quickly rack up quest experience.
Avatar – Avatar over Deadly Calm. Deadly Calm seems great until you use it and realize the spells you would like to spam either have cooldowns or don’t even cost rage. It mainly allows you to spam Slam for 6 seconds but I usually have enough rage to spam Slam anyways. On the other hand, Avatar’s 20% increased damage is always reliable and useful at anytime.
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.
If you already have a high-level character and want to quickly level up a new one, by far the best tools for the job are the items labeled “heirloom gear.” These pieces of gear have two very special properties — they bind to your account, so any character you own can use them, and they grant bonus experience. Their stats also scale with your character’s level up to a certain point, so you can equip a fresh character with heirloom gear and power through much of the game.
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.
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.
Many people have asked whether we recommend leveling as Enhancement or Elemental. There’s no definitive answer here; it depends entirely on your comfort, your gear options, and if you’re in a group or solo. Enhancement benefits more from Honor Talents in open world leveling, and Elemental has stronger AOE damage for mass pulling. Feel free to experiment with both specs.
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.
“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.”
From my experience on the Beta as an enchanter/tailor, scrap every trinket (and maybe rings). Trinkets seem to always give expulsom and it's needed in the higher enchants. Scrap any cloth green drops for the extra cloth, but other gear and blues and purples disenchant for the mats. The scrapper seems bad at the return on some items. I'd scrap old Azerite armor and get some cloth and a bit of thread.
Fish, meanwhile, were significantly devalued by the Underlight Angler, an artifact-quality Legion fishing pole that made fishing so productive that a very small number of fishermen could supply an entire server with materials for cooking. At current rates, fishing in Battle for Azeroth is more time-consuming, which means less food to go around, and higher prices at the auction house. Of course, Blizzard could change spawn rates in a future patch, but as of now, signs point to an economy in which common necessities will be much more scarce.

Buffs. Food/Flasks/Scrolls/Potions/Elixirs are a small, but noticeable, buff to your killing speed and survivability. If you have a max level character that can already supply you with cooking or alchemy, you'll be very well off, because the AH is a cesspool for this. I can't really give you specific foods or potions to look for, since each AH is going to have different supplies. Generally speaking, lower level foods are going to only last 15-20 minutes until you can buy the more powerful versions at 60+. Look for anything that adds versatility or your primary stat, and buy stacks for each level range(1-60/70/80/90/100)
A: We chose to go with the subscription-based model instead of that approach. We've taken the approach that we want players to feel like it's a level playing field once they're in WoW. Outside resources don't play into it -- no gold buying, etc. We take a hard line stance against it. What you get out of microtransactions is kind of the same thing and I think our player base would feel betrayed by it. I think that's something else you have to decide on up-front instead of implementing later.
As you can see, every profession is represented with these quest givers. What I was alluding too with the scrap bot is if you scrap your gear, you will have the mats required for someone who has this profession to be able to make the required item for you. That or you could trade other players for the items required for these turn ins. You will need the help of other players or a lot of gold in order to complete all 11 of these turn ins. Having a guild here will help a lot with this process.
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.
