Then 8.0 came along and turned everything on its head. Most of the techniques and shortcuts discovered, after 7.3.5 introduced scaling, were nerfed into oblivion. Many of the old techniques were confirmed by myself, first hand, to no longer work. I'm hoping that this thread can serve a similar purpose as the old thread, and gather as much data as possible on the fastest methods under the new system, and facilitate as many different perspectives and opinions on speed leveling with constructive discussion.
Island Expeditions are a new idea that digs into the island vibe brought in by Battle for Azeroth and allows players to team up in groups of three to venture out onto various islands to gather all-important Azerite while fighting against enemies on the island and completing quests. The twist is that Island Expeditions are also a race against the opposite faction — whether it's three AI characters or three real players is up to you — but you may have to do a little player vs. player (or fake PvP) if you happen to run into them.
So you're strapped for cash in World of Warcraft, and you need gold fast. Maybe there's an epic mount on the Auction House, or you're about to raid and need to finish enchanting your armor, or you're short on gold for glyphs. Whatever the reason, there's plenty of quick and mostly painless ways to farm up gold in WoW. Let's look at a few of the best ways.
Fourth, beginning in Mists of Pandaria with the Halfhill farm, and continuing in Warlords of Draenor with various garrison buildings that produced resources, Blizzard has been making trade goods more plentiful and easier to obtain. In Legion, herbs, fish and enchanting materials were so abundant that a very small population of gatherers could supply more raw materials than the economy could consume.

This is also the reason why when I read in WoW forums of people skipping guide sections, due to being too low level I'm not agree and start ranting about it: it'll be a mess syncronizing with the guide and I've seen many people complaining about missing quests or accusing the guide for being innacurate, but not realizing that was their fault since they're skipping and missing a lot of quest chain requirement. Of course this apply if you're following a guide, believe me, it's very frustrating when you remain stuck in a guide section due to the reasons I've mentioned, more than doing grey quests (but they allow to be perfectly in sync with the guide) and goiing here and there to get the pre-requisite quests.
Gold in WoW has value based on the time it takes a player to earn it. The various methods of farming gold, such as growing herbs, yield maybe 20,000 gold per hour. That means at a price of 100,000 gold, a token represents about five hours of grinding, or offers a wage of $3 per hour. The idea of gold being worth a certain amount per hour is a useful way of framing this discussion, in fact.
And more people are buying gold with the expansion turnover; token prices fell from around 207,000 gold in mid-July to around 185,000 gold right before Battle for Azeroth launched. They’ve fallen to around 150,000 gold in the first few days of the expansion. That’s still five times as much as they were worth two years ago, but it’s a 25 percent drop from where they once were. This means that significantly more people are interested in buying gold now than a few weeks ago.
I'm very, very interested in a guide that takes into the following: 1) Dungeon finder; and 2) Heirloom items. I've never helped with a guide before, but would be open to help in collaborating on the project. With the leveling guides I've used (primarily this one) I, too, find that I level at a rate that throws the pace of the guide way off (not its fault at all, I can't say enough good stuff about the guide) to the point that I get frustrated and just queue up for dungeons.
Also note that power leveling is sometimes used to refer to paying someone else to level your character to cap as fast as possible (i.e. they power level for you); a distinction used by Blizzard is to refer to the paid leveling as "power leveling service." This behavior is against Blizzard's Terms of Service. Power leveling yourself, which this article covers, is perfectly acceptable.
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.
Im pretty much Herb Alch for life because I like not having to rely on anyone else for my consumables. The addition of Sky Golem completely changed herbalism for me. All professions are represented with the 11 warfront quest and I can promise you if you know how to play the AH a little you can make a fortune off the items required for turn in. That also being said, profs were not a big focal point for me on my months of beta testing. I went herb alch on the first pre-made character just so I could have consumables for Raid and M+ testing.

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.”
There are also numerous gold-making guides available for World of Warcraft players. Currently mmobux recommends Killer Guides' World of Warcraft Gold Guide, which covers a broad range from daily quests and professions to making gold while leveling and auction house trading. 'Standard' farming spots are covered as well, making it an interesting resource for bots as well. Yielding up to 500 gold per hour, the strategies are suitable for players of all skill levels. If Killer Guides keeps the guide up to date, it probably will become a valuable resource for professional farmers as well. There also seems to be a German-language version available: WoW Gold Guide (German)
This gold making advice is applicable to most players, except if you are an enchanter, in which case there is a very strong case to turn them into dust and essence for your profession needs. As an advanced tip, you can explore the use of mobile apps that let you post on the auction house at the right time because the price of greens tends to fluctuate rapidly, and could mean a large loss of potential gold income.
At 98 you have the option to drop what you're doing and return to your capitol city to start the quest for your Legion Artifact weapon. However, I do not believe this is necessary to do right away unless you're struggling with kill speed in your current gear. I would recommend waiting for a natural pause, such as hearthing to repair and clear your bags. From 100 to 107 you won't even really fight mobs that often; only just enough to clear the way to any treasure you need to pick up.
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.
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.
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.
The reason for this is simple: Most players don’t need a lot of gold or care very much about it. An active player might earn an income of a few thousand gold per week from sending followers on missions and doing World Quests that award gold. They might then spend most of that money at the auction house buying things like flasks and stat-buffing food to do raids and Mythic+ dungeons. Gold just isn’t a big deal for them.
If you are just coming out of Level 110, you will probably have a number of different Legendary items to choose from. Your Legendaries' special effects will stop working at Level 116, but until then they can be a very powerful addition to help you level quickly. These are our Legendary recommendations for leveling as an Unholy Death Knight in Battle for Azeroth.
I tell you my experience. I'm leveling a priest that it's 60 now and since I have also done some instances (and I have full heirloom set with 20% experience gain bonuses) and been very ahead of the guide, I skipped some zones since they were grey quest for me, well it was a real mess. Missing quests because I didn't to the previous to enable the following. Going in a zone then realizing that I couldn't do that quest because I didn't do the starting quest chain, very unconmfortable. In short what I suggest you it's not to skip areas, or make really sure that you do all the quests required (at least) and check carefully the previous zone you'll going to skip to make sure that you won't have problems with struggling finding where to start the quest chain to sync with the guide section.
