Would a text-only guide suffice? Good for pleasure reading. :D The tabs make it hard to do that hehe.
Great guide. I tried the zero quest leveling and ended up racking up 1 quest mysteriously. Turns out Learning to Leave and Return: the Magical Way even if you don't do the quest counts as one if you use the portals to get from ground to the floating city. The act of traveling through chalks up one quest, dashing any hopes of 0 quest leveling.@lyk13Probably a Catch22. Half will complain about scrolling too much if they weren't tabs. Tabs give it a logical pause but require interacting with the page more.
Cataclysm BoA enchants require lvl 85... :P
Very enjoyable guide, thank you!Two things I wanted to mention"Choosing a talent tree grants a character a signature ability, like Mutilate for mutilate rogues", was it intentional to say 'mutilate rogues' rather than 'assassination rogues'?when describing the "Brewfest enthusiast" buff, yes it does have the holiday's name in the buff but it might be helpful to mention that it's a holiday related buff for the newbie players who don't know about it
I play an assassination rogue as my main and it's always 'I'm mut' for shorthand. I should make it be not shorthand for this :)Also ditto about the tabs vs non tabs--after a lot of early feedback, I changed the texty format (see bank alt guide) to one more with tabs. Some people don't realize the other tabs have info, others think pure text is too long.
That is an odd thing. I'm used to Mut rogues as well. I think it's because if you aren't a Mut rogue you're an Ass rogue.
In Ragnarok Online, there's a class called "Assassin". We always called them 'Sins for short, and since RO was very much about minute customization (unlike WoW, where there's really only one "right way" once you've picked a talent tree), there were "Crit Sins" and "(Fortune) Dagger Sins" and "Agi(lity) Sins". So you could say Sin Rogue! Actually, now I'm tempted to make one, because that sounds kind of ludicrous yet awesome.
Questing is a joke, these days its all about getting to end level.I remember when there actually was a community of low levels, when it was at least a little challenging.I mean you have to be kidding, heirlooms, guild perk xp, how much damn xp do you need rofl?That's why I don't make alts anymore, even though the new quests they added are cool, it doesn't change the fact that questing is a joke now.R.I.P Questing
Why should questing be anything else?Questing is a means to an end. You can enjoy it even when it goes fast, and you can do things like level while getting loremaster if you want some sort of a grind.The people who want questing to be tough would be somewhat irritated if you had to walk 30 miles to a tough job instead of driving because driving was 'a joke', wouldn't they.
Imho, it was never hard. I've played through vanilla to 60. It wasn't hard, just stupidly long. They just shortened the amount of exp to lvl and quests give out more exp so you can literally fly through zones bashing kobolds in the face with a rock and lvl up. A lot of the fun stuff is at 85 but you can still have fun questing because it has a lot of fun stuff to do.
I noticed an error in the Glyphs section. It mentions that "inscriptionists" (which isn't a word) make glyphs, rather than "scribes".
the one mechanic i wish the left in was weapon lvling nothing funnier than lvling bare hands so when your disarmed you can still hit
One thing that might be helpfulA bank alt can stick to cooking and fishing dailies while you level or play 85-content with your maindaily quest experience yield scales with your level, with BOA you would gain a level per 8 dailies (although only 1-60 though)a good boost to that alt that you created and vow to play later
Lovely guide, but I would recommend one small amendment in the quest section.Never discourage players from doing Green quests. They grant full experience and are usually easier to do, allowing more quests done per hour.
Has anyone else noticed that the heirloom gear name tags ingame are considered common items instead of heirloom gold... just saying.
My favorite part about leveling an alt since cata-IM GONNA PUNCH THAT DRAGON IN THE FACE!(If you don't get this, then go quest in Badlands some and come back.)edit:Also,
Awesome guide as always.
Stupid Zin'rokh. *grumble grumble*
You missed one of the absolute fastest ways to level.Rare mob camping.1. Find a rare mob that spawns close to an inn. Even better, find a zone that has two rare mobs close together and close to an inn2. Log out in the inn... once or twice a day, run to the rare mobs, kill them and run back to the inn.If you are at full rested exp, you will FLY through the levels doing this, and almost every zone has at least 1 or 2 that are very close to an inn.
