Cooking benefits all classes, especially melee and hunters (it is a free source of food). Until higher levels, the benefits it provides are almost exclusively stamina buffs. While more stamina is always nice, cooking is not essential to leveling. Considering the time investment required, if you pick up skinning then cooking would absolutely be a wise skill to level prior to hitting your level cap, as beasts often drop meat useful for skilling up. 

Common methods of power leveling include doing only those quests which are most efficient in terms of experience over time, and analyzing the quests in a given zone so as to do them in the most efficient order possible. Remember, the idea of power leveling is speed and efficiency--you may wish to obtain an addon that will show you how much experience per hour you are gaining to test your techniques. Additionally, ensure your character's talent build is crafted for maximum endurance. You want as little downtime (walking, drinking, eating, crafting, typing, etc.) as possible.

First of all let me say i Love the Addon but running into an issue i have the auto equip feature turned off and its still switching gear on me which can get a little annoying  when it keeps unquipping my shield during a fight lol. i play a pally tank but its syill changing my gear. it also does this on my other toons as well if i have a pice of gear that it thinks is better it switches even though i have the auto equip best un checked . am i doing something wrong or what?other than that no issues it works great and between you and sexy maps this is a great replacement for carbonite which they dont keep up with anymore.
Possibly the most complicated Addon I have ever used it is also one of the most powerful. You can build custom Visual and Audio warnings for virtually any situation in the Game. I have used it for Buff Stacks Low HP and Ability Cooldowns many times over the years on various Characters. Blizzard added similar Visual Warnings in Cataclysm.Git Repository: https://github.com/Geigerkind/ModifiedPowerAuras
I’m a level 70 (very soon to be level 80) Paladin in the World of Warcraft, and I use a power leveling service. /gasp you say? Well hear me out folks. I work hard at my career, make a decent living, and when I come home I just want to forget everything and unwind, change into my comfortable clothes – and snuggle up to some WOW??? No, not quite. I’m not looking to ride around on my mount and enjoy the scenery, or pass my gaming hours mindlessly killing monsters for gold and xp. What I really want is to login to my decked-out character and mess up some stuff! I want to engage in intense animate combat 1v1 or 2v2 or even monster vs. monster against worthy sentient opponents sitting at their computers across the wable from me with their adrenaline pumping just like mine, with senses and brain engrossed and skills of quick thinking, reaction, and strategy engaged. Sometimes I want to go ballistic in the Battlegrounds, hitting multiple targets with my Consecration spell and bubbling up in the front lines to absorb all damage for my group, with fellow Americans like myself working together in a maybe not unpredictable but at least natural people dynamic fashion against other real Americans, not bots with a predetermined action sequence. Sometimes I want to play the arenas with my Chicago friends and outmaneuver the opposing scheming, organized, and practiced team through our skill, teamwork, and communication, coordinating every strategic move on conference call for maximum efficiency, shouting when the heat rises, celebrating when we win, groaning if we lose, and fine tuning our strategy with each exhilarating battle. And sometimes I just want to hunt people down and kill em. Now that is quality entertainment. When I get home from a stressful, boring, or just normal day at work this is exactly the kind of outlet I need, entertainment engaging enough to relieve any restrained psychomotor agitation. This is why I play WOW – and this is why I use WOW power leveling when my character needs leveling or when I am outgeared by everyone else.
Before there was ingame WoW leveling guides, there was just eBook PDF leveling guides & what you paid for was the questing path.  As far asWoW leveling guides have come with fancy ingame user interfaces, the questing path is still the core.  Both WoW guides spend endless hours researching their questing path to find the fastest way to reach lvl cap.  It is pretty hard to deem one faster than the other as both produce extremely fast lvling times.  The reason I wanted to touch on this area is to confirm that both are really well planned and have seemingly very little difference.
Our old friend Quest Helper isn’t updated for the client, but there’s !Questie and MonkeyQuest to help you track available quests and their objectives. The biggest challenge to leveling up in the beta is searching for where the quest objectives are, so if you’re looking to hit the level 30 cap fast — or just the level 5 cap in today’s stress test — you’ll need one of these.
