Daxinator's Alliance Leveling Guide - Sholazar Basin (78 - 79)
Sholazar Basin to The Storm Peaks
Well, here's my first guide, so if you have any corrections you can give me would be nice! I will be writing the Sholazar Basin, Storm Peaks, and Icecrown guides for you to use to level your characters as FAST as possible to level 80!
I don't have the addon DMiniCoords, but I will look up locations and NPCs', etc. using wowhead.com, I will put down the coords down on the guide for you to find the objectives or whatever.
Let's get down to the rules!
1. Log out in a city or an inn, so your bars are blue, for rested XP bonus!
2. When I say look for a group for a certain quest, then look for a group, at most times you might be able to solo some group quests so its ok!
3. Its ok if your like already level 80 following this guide, as you could just level for reputation.
4. I will NOT be doing PvP or Class quests in this guide so don't message me about how I didn't add PvP or any class quests.
- Quest objectives to kill
