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.”

Another popular leveling guide is called “Booster”, which is also available for all races of Horde and Alliance. Similar to Zygor, Booster is an addon that you view inside the game, and it tells you exactly where to go and which quests to do every step of the way to level 120. The leveling path was created by professional gamers, and optimized to make your leveling as fast as possible. Booster also comes with free lifetime upgrades and updates, so you literally just have to pay once and use them forever, which is awesome. It’s created by a company called Dynasty Addons, that has been around for almost 10 years, and their guides and addons have always been updated in a timely manner for every expansion pack. It’s easy to see why this leveling guide is so popular.

The guide should advance to the point where you are in the zone's progression. There are a few steps that can-not autocomplete and they should (hopefully) have comments to the effect of -- you need to manually check this step off. -- For some reason you have to click these steps off 2-3 times to work. (the first time will move the tom-tom arrow, the 2nd time unchecks it and the 3rd click advances the guide).
For scribes who can't and won't go all in with crafting Darkmoon Cards, an attractive alternative is to also dip into the other "odds and ends" inscription items. Particularly popular and profitable are BoE shoulder enchants (both blue and purple rarity), Runescrolls of Fortitude and the pair of companion kites. And if players had to choose only one of these, BoE should enchants are "easily one of the best money makers, in terms of gold per hour" because of their consistent demand and persistently solid wow gold price

I used fully upgraded and enchanted heirlooms; missing only the fishing ring. Leveling from 1-20 took ~3 hours, at which point I immediately turned on War Mode for the duration. I rarely encountered enemy players, and when I did they almost always left me alone. But the few times I did get ganked, the total cost in time was insignificant. Maybe a total of 5 deaths from ganks in the entire 40 hours.
5% was admittedly an exaggeration, just felt that low. I'd say it was probably closer to the 30-40% range. It was Artifacts of the Blacksilt, spent a good 10-15 minutes killing Blacksilt Seers to get two damn idols to drop. A quest that had me killing Elder Brown Bears for bear flanks also took quite a while, though that was less due to drop rate and more due to how spread out they were.

“For more than a year in WOTLK I did nothing but raiding and some dailies here and there. I leveled a bit on a few alts and, as all are aware, it cost to support alts sometimes. I did dailies, and LFG quests until the Dungeon finder came along. I did 2 or 3 randoms then logged off if not a raid night. I was bored with the grind of dailies and wanted a change.

A much smaller number of players are producing surplus quantities of those valuable goods and providing them to other players. And all the gold generated by the activities of those players who ignore the grindy professions and get what they need from the auction house is flowing to the players who are making all those goods available on demand to the rest of the community. Most of these auction house merchants are sitting on a lot of gold, but the number of people who want to make cash this way is relatively low.
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.
First off, there is no reason to ignore the war Campaign, you need to do them to unlock world quest. Beside that, the way scaling works, war campaigns are easyer to do while leveling then at 120. Everything becomes alittel harder at 120, untill you get some gear, because of them scaling levels. Also, i did my leveling on a demon hunter in about 8-9 hours. I think i know what youtube video you talked about, and i strongly dissagree with him. One thing tho, total xp needed was buffed with 15% that in worse case would make me take 10hours, the way i did it.
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.
In my opinion, Zygor makes the best WoW leveling guides. They have been around for more than 10 years, which shows their commitment to maintaining and updating their guides to provide you with an optimized leveling path for any class and race, whether it’s Horde or Alliance. Zygor is an addon that includes a waypoint arrow and a separate window with instructions that, taken together, show you step-by-step how to level your character to 120, FAST. You’ll know exactly what to do at all times. It’s also very easy to jump in at any level; you don’t have to start exactly at level 1 or 110 or anything. It’s a bit more expensive than the other options, but I’d say it’s definitely worth it.
The Broken Isles are unique among WoW continents in that you can progress through zones in any order you want. Once you have made it through the initial quests in Legion, you are free to move about four of the new zones — Val’sharah, Azsuna, Stormheim, and Highmountain — as you wish, with enemies, quests, and rewards scaling to your level. The fifth zone, Suramar, is mostly locked away until you’ve reached a certain point in the story.
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.

Heirloom experience should be boosted, now that zones scale. If a zone scales along with me, it shouldn't matter if it gives me 20 levels instead of 10. I'm still enjoying the experience, even as a veteran player. I don't need to see every zone on every character again; that's the point of heirlooms. I can still enjoy the leveling experience, and the scaling, and the full outdoor experience of the zones -- and still get to the end game content I enjoy in a somewhat reasonable time as an employed adult. And the change wouldn't affect new players.
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.
Potions serve more utilitarian purposes, and it's up to you to decide whether to make use of them. The most common is the Swiftness Potion, which can provide you a handy boost in speed while going after annoying quest objectives indoors. These are generally MASSIVELY overpriced, because people know how useful they are. I opted not to spend the gold since Warriors are already fairly mobile, but slower classes may benefit greatly from these.
But when it comes time to level another character for any reason, this pace is going to make me think twice. And that's a shame. I'm not someone who gets any particular joy out of instant-boosting a character to max level. There are dozens of zones -- no exaggeration -- that I wouldn't mind experiencing again, if I could do a few of them at a time and feel like I was making meaningful progress on another level-110 in the process.
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.
The dark side of this disparity is griefing; max level players are able to easily disrupt questing areas in use by players of the opposite faction, and can one-shot most enemy characters. Sadly, even guards in most areas are unable to stand against well-equipped max level players, especially as the current expansion progresses and gear steadily increases in power. Of course, the best answer to this is usually to recruit some max level players of your own faction, or switch to a max level alt, and make the griefer regret the day they flew into Goldshire.
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.
World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion has been unleashed on the live servers and players are starting to arrive at The Broken Isles to plunder its untouched reserves of gold. Some are diving into the new dungeons and raids while others are undertaking the array of quests in the vast region. See how you, too, can gain immense amounts of gold in this exciting expansion.
Tiragarde Sound and Stormsong Valley are both fairly similar zones, but Stormsong is a little longer, meaning that you might not even have to finish it to hit 120. Tiragarde also comes with a bit of a warning. There are plenty of side quests to do in the zone after you finish the story quests. Don’t do them. It’s not worth the time or the experience you’ll get.
“The biggest struggle of overhauls like item scaling is being able to exhaustively test it,” he said. “You can’t expect any group of a few hundred people to go in and hit every piece of content that’s ever been developed over the past 15 years of World of Warcraft. That is difficult and challenging to do. What we did was listen to a lot of feedback from the PTR, what those changes looked like there. “The community is a great resource for helping us understand what we missed, and we were able to develop technology to be agile about fixing the problems very quickly in a live environment when we did come across them. We did have a few hiccups when we launched the patch in terms of scaling issues, but a lot of those were addressed rather quickly and that’s due to the technology we’ve developed to hot-fix our servers and almost anything in the game without down-time.”

This level range opens a variety of zones from the Cataclysm expansion, which are spread across the game’s original continents, but it’s more efficient to head to the continent of Pandaria. You can spend the entirety of this level range exploring its uniquely themed zones and quests. The Jade Forest, Valley of the Four Winds, and Kun-Lai Summit are our picks, but all the zones are worth checking out.

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.
As you're leveling, I generally recommend you just follow the natural flow of the progression through each zone. They're laid out fairly reasonably. But don't be afraid to hop around, especially if you're near a quest objective. You shouldn't actually need ALL of the zones listed to reach 62. Pick the ones you like best. It's much more important to simply be as focused as possible and flow from one quest to the next.
