Cataclysm Leveling Guides 1-85



All the guides on wow-pro are FREE, there is no trick, they are just free and will remain free. Enjoy and please contribute!

Click here to access the 1-85 Leveling Guides links


Here’s how to enjoy the guides as much as possible, even if you don’t have a 2nd monitor, you can either:

1. Print the guides. There is a “Printer Friendly Version” link at the bottom of every guide, you just have to click on it. However, that might be expansive (and probably expensive), because the guides are big, very big. Another downside is that my guides are updated very frequently, so if you print it you’ll miss the latest updates.

2. Playing WOW in Windowed Mode feels very comfortable while following along with this guide.

  • Keep the guide opened in an internet window
  • Log in to World of Warcraft, press Escape and go to Video Options, tick the following boxes:


Click on “Apply“.

Your screen will look exactly as if you were playing wow in full screen mode, besides you will be able to ALT-TAB to the guide INSTANTLY.

This is how I play wow while following my guide, when I don’t feel like booting up my 2nd computer 🙂

3. If you don’t like any of those options, then you should definitely try our in-game addon version of our leveling guides. Simply click the link below:

Question– Your guides really helped me out and I want to return the favor, what can I do to help?

Answer– Here’s how you can contribute:

1. Most important and easiest way to help: Spread the word. Tell people about our guides. Your friends, guildmates, boards you visit. Tell them that they are FREE and that they make you level much faster than other guides or questhelper.

2. When you try our guides, if you find any mistakes, leave a comment.

3. Post useful comments here. When people ask for advices and you know the answer, go for it and help them out. The goal of this community is to make this website the best place to find information and help about wow.

4. And then of course, you can write a guide about an area of the game where you’re good. Check my Guide writing guide before you start, it should cover most points 🙂

5. You can also translate guides into other languages, if you are fluent in another laguage. Check our Guides in Other Languages section to see what has already been translated.

6. If you’re rich in RL, feel free to donate!

    2 Days and 2 Hours!?!?I first saw the link and thought, “there is one of those spammers, gawd knows what would happen if I clicked on that link.”But it looked safe, and it was a screen shot and you really did level up extra fast!   Congrats and thanks for the love!

    Truly AmazingI made this account to show some love for you guys!  With all the hardwork and everything that you’ve done…I’ve been using your guides for quite a while and decided to go for a somewhat of a speed run(dungeon’d with the new dungeon system through OL/NR) and turned up some pretty amazing results.  I got a screencap.  I was in the Chest/Head/Back/Helm/Bow BoA’s.  No rings/trinks/RaF(Recruit-a-friend).

    I Agree – It’s FreeBeing one who has created free stuff for others to use (I have 4 open source projects on SourceForge.Net), I can say that I truly and really appreciate anyone who can provide stuff for free, and keep it rolling for as long as y’all have done here.I recently considered trying out Zygor, and despite trying 2 browsers and 4 e-mails addresses, I couldn’t get an e-mail to authenticate my subscription. So figured I would go over to Dugi, and they use the same authenticatino service, so again, no e-mail. Now that’s frustrating!I’ve been using these guides for quite some time, and now appreciate them even more than I did before. I always go to the source site for add-on updates, and use their links to update my mods. I do not rely on Curse, WowInterface, or any other download site if I can find the originating development site.Although I have 3 level 85 (Paly, Druid, DK), and 4 other 40’s, I still consider myself a noob. Fortunately though, at least I’m aware I have more insight to appreciate the devotion and willingness y’all have brought to us ‘noobs’.Thank you very much and keep up the great work!!!

    StartedSo, I’ve just started using this addon, mainly to gather all the quests for each zone. So far pretty good, though I seem to have missed A LOT of quests, but I’m assuming that’s due to cataclysm re-forming them. If you need a hand with the addon let me know, my LUA knowledge isn’t exactly A+ but I figure things out 🙂

    Hah, apparently I missed thisHah, apparently I missed this while I was on holiday. Awesome when people try to respond without bothering to read anything.

    We have all the new zones, if you are too stupid to download an addon from something other then Curse, or at least ask for help if you are having trouble rather than bad mouthing us without any grounds, then you don’t deserve to have the results of our hard work.

    Honestly? I do this for fun. I don’t give a crap if you personally don’t use the addon. I’d like the community here to stay active, but I don’t think I’d want someone so internet illiterate to be part of our community anyway.

    TL;DR – if you can’t be bothered to follow the directions quite clearly listed both here and on our other distributors, don’t post. And I don’t answer to anyone, as I am not being PAID for anything here, so GTFO, KTHXBAI 😀

    Grizzly in GrizzlyThanks for the info, for some unexplainable reason Grizzly hills has been a zone that has caused us an amazing amount of Grief, the more info we get on this zone the better chance we have to fix it.  I can’t give you an ETA on when or how we are going to fix it as its been plaguing us for ever, but we appreciate the feedback very much

    Annoying bug pop upHi there, I’ve been a big fan of Jame’s guides for a few years now. However, ever since I started questing in Grizzly Hills, I keep getting this very annoying error that pops up every time I hover over something. Here is a screenshot: error pops up so much that it has become quite annoying and I’ve even considered dropping the guide altogether. I just updated the guide a few days ago, too. Any ideas?

    This is funny.I find it hilarious that people are actually making an account to complain about something that has been given for free for years. As jiyambi said this is a site that is mostly done by volunteers. Please instead of just griping about, read a little and learn how to help. The addon is very simple to use and editing guides is simple once you know what to look for. I won’t mention any names but there are sites that make you pay for this stuff and the addons are just as buggy.

    I just made an accountI just made an account to congratulate you on being an idiotic piece of ****.
    You might want to learn to read before going all berserk about something you have no right to judge about.Just quit playing the game, people with attitudes like you ruin it anyway._________Now that I finaly made an account I might aswell just say that I love the addon and I’ve been using these guides for years. I’m an achievement hunter and these guides really give me what I’m looking for. The week before cataclysm launch I was pretty much on here every day checking on updates for the guides and being all excited about it ;-). Too bad Cataclysm came at a bad time since I’m working my ass of studying at the moment but hey, lots of fun afterwards.Cheers, Dodsangel

    Leveling speedMade an account just so i could let you know…. i used your guide from 1 to 85 as soon as cata hit since i hadnt played in forever i knew the zones a little but had no money no herilooms all completely fresh on a new server.i did level with a friend on recruit a friend 1 to 60 so we had triple exp for the times that he would get on which probably was most of 1 to 30 the rest was questing and the random  dungeon finder i also did pause during level 83 to 84 to help a friend that was level 73 do some dungeons. so here is my result on /played to 85.

    As has been mentioned quite a few times [b][size=20][color=#cc0000]IMPORTANT – THE VERSION ON CURSE.COM DOES NOT HAVE ALL THE GUIDES![/color][/size][/b]. You can find it on the addon page under the video. And the paper guides are being slowly done. Those are harder to do than the addon ones.

    The fact is the 60-80 guides for the addon [i]ARE[/i] being redone (which I currently am working on), which as been mentioned a few times as well. Those were on the back burners for the new stuff.

    [quote=[url=]Kleandros[/url]]I was outleveling them like crazy WITHOUT instances or heirlooms[/quote]
    Speaking of you out leveling the zones, blame Blizzard [b][i]NOT US[/i][/b]! They were the ones that lowered the amount of experience needed, so of course you will out level the zones.

    [quote=[url=]Kleandros[/url]]Whether you like it or not, YOU answer to US. Get used to it, and listen to us. [/quote]
    -shrugs- We can easily just stop making the guides since we are doing this for [b]free[/b]. So get off your high horse.

    Excuse me?Unfortunately I have to agree with Ryan. You say that, “Besides the fact that, as several users have pointed out, we DO cover EVERY zone in the game… this post is ludicrous” But what are you talking about? It’s been over 2 weeks now since the Cataclysm launch and lvls 25-60 are not even covered yet.  If this is how you treat the people that make YOUR website go ’round, don’t be surprised when your page rank falls off because nobody is coming here anymore.  And people WILL stop coming here when they realize everything is outdated (the 60-80 guides are both severely outdated and neep remaking – I was outleveling them like crazy WITHOUT instances or heirlooms) or just not there at all.. Whether you like it or not, YOU answer to US. Get used to it, and listen to us.
