Gosh i'm expecting this skip since the second character i lvled in WoD
With each new patch, each new expansion, it always comes with new bugs and new problems.But it also comes with new and exciting cheese, I wonder what flavour cheese we get next?
Introductory quests arn't great that for sure, but they give good xp/hour and are over quite fast while requiring little to no travel time, the garrison starter ones are the real pain.
I literally just finished those quests. Next time
I would recommend not skipping the intro quest as it takes about 15 minutes and gives close to 5 levels.
I know it's annoying, but damn how fast it is to rack up three levels doing 20 minutes of questing. I'll pass and get easy levels.
Skip the intro, though? That's a lot of experience to miss.
Good Lord, I might actually level in Draenor now. There wasn’t anything that I hated more than those Warlord introductions.
Welp, now that we know about it, hotfix incoming?
watched a belluar video last night, an updated leveling guide and if you do the intro line, its fast anyways. But you gain 5 levels by doing it. 10-15. it can be a slog if you done it a few times (or..many times) but personally on my first toons leveling I'm going to do it. 5 levels for 30 minutes or whatever is crazy good. also from video, by doing intro, then full garrison setup with a drought of 10 lands you can almost hit or hit 20. go train mount speed. then start and do gorgrond (you will have the breadcrumb quest upon coming back). do gorgrond till 30, go grab flying. you have options for 30-40 you can even experiment with other zones or other expansions or just continue on through SMV (since skipped it go to gorgrond) finish both those zones + maybe talador or spires. at 45 head out to loch modan in EK and 45-50 is super fast (faster than even staying in WOD apparently) and finish 50 without even finishing the zone. the levels per hour in loch modan are fast as if you were in the 30's, even though 40-50 is the longer stretch.pretty much it. Its cool if want to skip the intro but its 5 levels. I'll see how it goes this week.
Oh plz yes played this questline soo many times :D
I love the introduction, and it's free levels.. so I guess I'll just not do this.
I subscribe to reddit and didn't see this post and found it useful. At least Wowhead is giving credit to their sources unlike other outlets.
The reason you used to skip it was to get to the treasures and bonus objectives faster, but now that those are nerfed why would you skip the intro?
here I was hoping it would be: ↑↑↓↓←→←→BA
Isn't this against TOS? Blizz is just ok with this?
I expect a fix in 9.3 or tomorrow's hotfix will just say "you can no longer abandon introduction quests"I guess it depends which side of the coin Blizzard lands
