Leveling in Cataclysm - The Race to 85
Posted 25 May 2010 - 11:06 AM
My first character will be in the race to 85. I have all the heirloom gear, most importantly the ones with 10% experience gained, luckily two brothers to race along with me, and quite a few cold ones. The question now becomes... Is it fastest to complete quest after quest using add-ons to show you where to go or is it quicker to queue and re-queue for dungeons repeatedly?
In my experience queueing for random dungeons over and over is the easiest for me but I have always leveled a healer or tank. This makes it much easier to do, but when Cata comes out even the DPS should be able to match up with a guild tank or healer. Do I just like the random dungeons because they are mindless and easy? Or is it actually quicker to complete quest after quest racing along solo?
I would love to hear other's plans.

As for the actual grind, I'd say that questing - provided you know what you're doing thanks to beta testing (or reading what beta players did) - is the way to go. In WotLK, if you know what you're doing, the 70-80 grind is very quick with questing.
Also, this could be a nice thread to discuss the quickest way to level profs. I suspect that you can get a decent head start by hoarding up mats for Cat (as most high-level crafts stay yellow/orange for a bit), but I'm completely in the dark for the rest.

Whichever method provides more XP/hr is the faster one.
We don't have XP/hr values because levels 83-85 aren't implemented on the Alpha.
