As always, I will monitor and update this guide as new information comes in. If I've gotten anything glaringly and completely wrong, just tell me with as much data as possible. The idea is to find the fastest possible leveling method, NOT to argue about how good or bad individuals are. If you have hard data, post it! If you have an idea, let the thread know so we can test it!
Also get the Heirloom Mount. Being able to have basic riding speed from the beginning will save you a lot of time if you're starting from level 1. Allied races start at 20, so this is a non-issue for them. It's important to note that Pandaren can not use this mount until they finish their starting zone and pick a faction. Being Horde or Alliance is a requirement of the mount.
The Escalation patch has introduced several new scenarios with respective heroic modes that provide shiny new loot. It is still too early to predict which of these will demand the highest prices at the auction house or AH, since it can take weeks for players to work through the content and determine the value of the new drops compared to the existing items. Many expect the rarest and most prized drops to start commanding handsome prices starting June, so just keep your eyes peeled for popular WTB requests in general chat and high-selling items at the AH.
World of Warcraft Gold (US) is a currency used in the US server as a medium of trade. WoW Gold, items are rewarded after killing the enemies. WoW gold is a limited resource and is hard to come by even though gold can be earned by various ways. It is still time intensive for any player to gather the gold needed to get better gears which make advancing easier. Because of the enormous need for WoW Gold, it has attracted many exploiters such as dupers and gold farmers. Arguing that they ruin other people's experience and enjoyment of the game, Blizzard has put up a strong fight to combat these exploiters by banning large number of accounts involved in the activities. However, there are as many players who would not want to invest their time and are willing to pay the extra money to get through the game. Generally, the price of WoW Gold in the EU servers are more expensive than those in the US.
First: Azeroth Auto Pilot is a fantastic addon for those who just want to get the leveling done and have 0 desire to read text and watch cutscenes. I have submitted a lot of feedback to the developer over the course of its creation and after doing a play through on both Horde and Alliance I can strongly recommend this addon. For those who want to watch cutscenes, I am somewhat positive that there is an option to not skip cutscenes. I strongly recommend trying this out once BFA launches because even if you don’t skip the cutscenes the proper pathing and skipping of quest text will save you a lot time. I would like to note that the only zone where I encountered an issue was in Vol’dun where the pathing seemed a little off from what would make logical sense, but I have submitted that feedback to the dev and hopefully he has corrected it. THIS ADDON IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO USE IT YOU DON’T HAVE TO. IM JUST GIVING PEOPLE INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO LEVEL ALTS/HAVE PLAYED THROUGH THE STORY BEFORE/OR JUST WANT TO GET LEVELING DONE ASAP.
With the excitement of becoming Level 120 comes a lot of new activities to do. However, it is particularly important to note that you should continue to complete the story mode quests. You will undoubtedly achieve Level 120 before completing your third zone, so be sure to head back and finish the story quests as they are important to unlocking game content as well as pushing your reputation levels even higher. Each zone comes with a lot of side quests that can be ignored at first as you push your item level up, complete emissaries, and do dungeons, but when you have some time, be sure to wrap up all of the quest lines in each zone to maximize your reputation potential. Reputation is the gateway to all things in Battle for Azeroth, so quest away! Be sure to use our Quest Completion Checker tool here at Icy Veins to see if there are any missed quests in any of the zones for you to go back and complete!

Another problem is that gold isn’t a finite resource; the game is constantly creating more of it. Gold is created every time someone completes a quest, kills an enemy or sells trash to a vendor. Some gold is siphoned back out of the game economy by repair bills, flight paths and a “tax” on auction house sales. Occasionally, a lot of gold is destroyed when someone buys a pricey vanity mount from a vendor. But gold is created quicker than it is destroyed, and it becomes less valuable as it becomes less scarce.
A: The gold value of a Token will be determined dynamically based on supply and demand. When you put a Token up for sale, you’ll be quoted the amount of gold you’ll receive upon a successful sale. If you then decide to place the Token up for sale, that amount is locked in, and the gold will be sent to your mailbox after another player purchases your Token.

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.

My second least-favorite part: leveling ranges. Zones are divided into leveling ranges; some are for levels 10-60, others for levels 58-80, and so on. On the surface, that appears to make sense; while there are odd moments where you're presented with the content from two expansions at once, it does mean that you're more or less going through content in order, at least by expansion if not by level.
Fishing requires much time and does not yield much profit until its later levels. Unless you enjoy it for its own sake, avoid seriously delving into fishing until your level limit. It is not a bad idea to do a little when starting out a new character on a new server, though - the gray items you fish up sell for good money to a starter, which can help you out with your other tradeskills.

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).
The Escalation patch has introduced several new scenarios with respective heroic modes that provide shiny new loot. It is still too early to predict which of these will demand the highest prices at the auction house or AH, since it can take weeks for players to work through the content and determine the value of the new drops compared to the existing items. Many expect the rarest and most prized drops to start commanding handsome prices starting June, so just keep your eyes peeled for popular WTB requests in general chat and high-selling items at the AH.

Fifth: As for Azerite Armor, I recommend getting the Chest first from Magini and if you do Vol'dun first, the first piece you can get will be a Head and the final piece from the zone with be Shoulders. That will give you all 3 pieces of Azerite Armor when you leave the first zone which will help out. If you are leveling a different spec from what you plan on playing, (i.e leveling as a dps when you plan to heal/tank) you will receive at least 2 pieces from every zone then 1 piece from starting the War Campaign that you can choose your Main Spec trait for. Pick the traits that will help you level the fastest.


Blizzard will release the World of Warcraft's new expansion: Battle for Azeroth with the next four days. It is said that BFA will launch all regions at the same time and the specific time for different countries has been leaked out. BFA's coming means that Legion will finally say goodbye to its fans. Here, let's follow raiditem.com to review some important changes in WoW's history.

Literally just do quests as efficiently as you can. The difference between picking a perfect route and just doing whatever is like an hour, tops. I've already leveled 7 characters in bets because I won't be playing at launch (baby due in aug) and I've been under 12 hours on all but the first. I actually broke 10 on DH, but that's bcuz war mode and DH leech is OP, not because of a special route.
The zone you start in isn't under your control, in as much as it's pre-selected for you based on your race. But for leveling purposes we want to make scaling work for us as much as possible. That means sticking to the lower level zones. Even though scaling will increase the level of the quests and mobs in those zones, the layout and design of them is built for a player with no mount. So you'll blaze through them and gain more exp/hour than higher level zones which assume you DO have a mount.
The Hearthstone has a cooldown of 30 minutes, but there’s a guild perk called Hasty Hearth that shaves the time by half, giving you a strong incentive to join a guild. Yes, even if it’s some random guild that invites you without warning. It may feel odd to join people you don’t know, but if they have Hasty Hearth (and most guilds do), joining can save you a lot of legwork.
It's not an enchantment, but you should buy or craft an iLVL 100+ belt, gloves, or boots with a gem socket for use with the new 5% bonus experience gem: Insightful Rubellite. I used a vendor-bought belt from the legacy valor vendor in Orgrimmar, since it was convenient and met the minimum ilvl bonus. Keep these in your bags until you can equip them, which should be just in time for treasure collections in WoD content. I didn't ever replace the belt until I dinged 110, since I didn't feel the stats from later upgraded belt drops made enough of a difference to outweigh the 5% bonus. This is explained below, in the WoD treasure section.
