Most of the time you spend leveling will involve questing and slaying monsters, but there’s also a lot of travel. Travel earns you little experience (you do gain a bit for discovering new areas), so it’s wise to keep travel to a minimum. The new level scaling system, which scales zones to your level within a preset range, helps with that. You can choose what zones you want to experience and stick with them until you finish their quests.
Before you can write any sort of code, you'll want to have a tool that lets you edit your AddOn files. However do not get overly distracted with the tools themselves while trying to get your first AddOn created. Any text editor, like Windows Notepad can edit the files. All AddOn files are plain text files. The editors can make the coding and many repetitive tasks easier for day to day editing, but it's often very difficult to learn the tools and try to learn the AddOn at the same time.
I’ve reviewed my fair share of Guides. If, much like me you’re fed up with guides which can be put together inside a messy manner you don’t have to worry about that with Dugi’s Guide.The writer has done a great job making certain you spend more of your time and effort learning his substance than looking by way of his guide for what you’d like to learn.
I've been having what is apparently a scaling issue caused by inflated secondary stats on some Wrath of the Lich King items. In particular, my Highmountain tauren warrior leveled through Northrend and picked up a green, iLvl 87, 2h sword. All of the secondaries were in the +25 to +30 range, and the Dugi Gear Advisor decided it was better than the heirloom 2h axe I was using. So I went ahead and equipped the sword.
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.
Our Mists® leveling packages are tailored to get you to level 90 as soon as possible. Staying at level 85 will make you easily ganked by the new level 90's; likewise, if you're level 90, you can have fun ganking the lower level 85's! :-) By getting to level 90, you will have the upper hand on the economy through the auction house. Players will want to buy the new greens and profession mats that come out and being level 90, it will make it easier for you to farm these items. Additionally, you will be able to start gaining level 90 PvP conquest points for the new season 12 arena gear since the level restriction for Rated Battlegrounds and Arena is level 90.
Drustvar is far and away the hardest Alliance zone, which is exactly why you want to do it first. If you have legendary items, they’ll still be usable, and if you don’t, this zone will still be easier early on than it will be later. Drustvar is also extremely fast and will let you jump out ahead of your competition in other zones, which means fewer players around to take your quest objectives.
