Jame’s Alliance Leveling Guide

author image by Jame | Guide | 680 Comments | 13 Août 2006

Now also available as an in-game leveling addon. Please check out the following page to try the WoW-Pro Leveling Addon!

If you need guides for any other level range please check out this page.

If you don’t want to try our WoW Leveling Addon, here’s how to enjoy the paper 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 🙂

    it was okTHis guide was ok, but i did everything you said and i only got to lvl 37. Idk if it’s my fault or not but i was really wanting to get to 40 for my mount. I am a lvl 37 Hunter and i started at 30. But all in all pretty good guide.

      eh? 😛

      If you follow myeh? 😛

      If you follow my guide correctly you should be at the level my guide says you should be o_O

      I calculated the XP given by the quests in the guide and for the missing XP I said you should grind. But in total you should be lvl 40 at the end of chapter I of my alliance guide, I don’t understand how you “only got to level 37” 🙂

        SuggestionGreat guide, thanks for your efforts. Especially like the maps and numbering.

        One item I did not spot is.
        -Cloth hand in.
        –In each major city (2 in IF) you can hand in:
        –60 wool, silk, mageweave amd runecloth
        –Worth a lot of XP and takes almost no time as you will be in the city.

        Might be worth adding into guide when you “warp to a city”

    Best level 30-60 Guide i have Ever Read.James, i worship you. Your guides are so greatly detailed and shows exacually where i need to go and who to talk to, i have a level 46 Night Elf hunter, started guide at level 32, i have never leveled so fast, if it wasn’t for your guides i would of probally not even be level 40. Thank you for taking the time to write these guides. I also have one question.
    Do you plan on making a level 20-30 Alliance guide? i looked at some alliance guides on here for 20-30, but their not really any good. And at 20-30 is usually the level i start to struggle with. Just was curious if a 20-30 was on the way or not. Either way, Very nice job on the current guide i give u a 10/10.

        Jan 4, 2007 @ 5:59

        Wow that must have been oneWow that must have been one hell of a day!

        These guides are pretty good. I have used them 30+ a couple of times now, and while I do miss something here and there sometimes do to formatting, they are awesome. I would have to say that post 2.0.1 there are a good deal of extra quests here and there around the world that might be added. To the Swamp of Sorrows walkthrough in particular.

        A 20-30 guide would be a very good addition if that could be done. With the extension of Forest Song there could be a good deal of different locales to level. Would be nice to know what the most efficient path was.

      I can’t seem to make it but i believe that it worksHi, first of all this is my first char and I play a mage. I don’t seem to notice that my lvling is so fast since it takes me about 7 hours per lvl following this guide. I have to admit that in SVT I get kicked by hordes cause I’m on a PVP server so I went Grinding to get lvl 34 in sargeron just beside the next location you said for lvl 36 lvling. It’s safe out there and there are plenty of lvl 32-33 demons, easy killing. At the beginnning you said there wouldn’t have a lot of grinding but i kind of get 30k grinding expi every lvl and that’s what makes it long. Am I supposed to have so much grinding to do? There’s also the fact that I’m not able to get over 5k grinding expi per hour and that is long too. 5k to 30k makes it 6 hours. If anyone could give me an advice or whatsoever on how to play my mage or I don’t know what i’d be thankful.

      PS. One reason why my grinding expi is slow is that I’m always drinking water for my fire built mage spends it all on two demon killing. I use to Pyroblast, Fireball, Frost Nova, Fireball again and end it with a Flameblast and that kills it. (Usually they don’t die if I Screech’em for the last hit)

      1)Am I supposed to always have around 3/4 of a level to grind?
      2)Is there a way to have a mana/kill efficient rating?
      3)What’s the use of those :

      1. 1X Patterned Bronze Bracers ~50 Silver
      2. 1X Frost Oil ~ 2 Gold
      3. 1X Gyrochronatom ~1 Gold

      Early thanking

        No problemTo: PingPong

        During Jame’s Guide he uses quest grinding rather than straight up grinding most of the time, and it could be that you’re only grinding and not quest grinding. Follow his circuits and do the quests, kill everything along the way and don’t waste time at all running to and fro handing quests in, do that in the end. 🙂

          tBC Expansion.I suppose that this has been asked lots of times before, but do you plan on writing up a 60-70 guide when the Expansion is released later this month?
          Needless to say, we’d all love it if you did! 🙂
          Cheers for a great guide, and hopes for more to come!

    Great Guide!I must say, when I first looked at the Guide with my 42 Priest, I didn’t think I could do it. I stopped playing for awhile, but then decided to try with my 30 Hunter. In under a week and a half i’ve gone from level 30-48 using this Guide and averaging about 5 hours of play a day. It’s detailed to tell you exactly where to go, when to go, and in the end gets you a hump sum of experience in a short amount of time.

    Great Guide Jame’s don’t know what we’d do without you. 😀

    Possible Update for lvl 46?I’m not sure if you know about this Jame’s, but either recently or just after this new patch, there was a Draenei placed in Aerie Peak with 3 quests of relative ease, and rewarding some easy experience. One of them, which asks you to find Furrolborrow or some odd Dwarf’s house, is just South of Aerie Peak and all that is needed is for you to right click on the book on the table in the house and it rewards an easy 3k experience (possibly more, not sure if quests lose total xp or not for higher lvl, I did it at 49 to hit 50 rather than grinding).

    He also gives you another one to kill a Witch Doctor and his pet spider, which at 46 at the time I found to be extremely easy (then again i’m a hunter and just used my pet as bait :D).

    The third quest is just killing Wolves which actually fits in nicely with the circuit, since the wolves are right along the way and is a good easy quick grind.

    But anyways, just thought i’d let you know. 🙂 I’m pretty sure you have a grinding session in the lvl 46, and could replace it with those three quests for a real easy 7-13k exp.

    • img
      Jan 7, 2007 @ 7:29

      Great guide!I am currently at 46 now, and this seems to be the longest grinding section – I have 6 and 1/2 bars to grind to be 1 bar before 47.

      Great guide – I love it. I agree with Jake, there are a few additional quests that have been added to the game since the last patch.

      Additional point to note to those that are not getting their level high enough, I wonder if you are doing this in a group? I think that is quicker and easier, but you do not get quite the same amount of xp when you are grinding for the quests, hence the additional grinding required.

      I am looking forward to using the rest of your guides to hit 60! 🙂

    Excellent GuideJust wanted to say I am having great luck with your guide, though I must admit I jumped in it in my late 30s and it was a bit difficult to sort through STV, but once situated there, it has been an invaluable referance. Thanks a bunch Jame.

    GREAT GUIDEJame, great job. Anyone who can’t follow this guide and be successful should really either 1. Learn to read or 2. Pay attention to what they are reading.
    If you follow this guide, you will get to where Jame says you will. It’s so easy.
    I am thoroughly impressed.
    Are you doing a guide for 60 to 70?
    Do you have any other guides other then leveling?
    ie Money making
    Thanks a bunch for all your hard work.
    Appreciated here.

    Brilliant guide!Just wanted to say thank you Jame for writing such a good guide. I only discovered it when I was lvl52, and I followed the steps from 50 to about 57, in the process going from lvl 52 to 60, which I dinged last night! Yay!

    Found the overall quality of the guide very good, and would heartily recommend it. It’s fun, efficient and easy to use, and it’s free!

    I also found that being a couple or three levels higher than the section I was following made some encounters a fair bit easier than they would be at the ‘correct’ level, and I didn’t feel that the XP/hour I was getting suffered too much as a result. I’m a casual gamer, so having an easier time of it suits me fine. Being a bit higher than the recommended level also helped me by allowing the option to skip over instance runs and crack on with the next solo stuff, which saved me time too. I’ve done some of the instance stuff before, and will go back to do it later as it is fun, but because you can waste a lot of time doing instances with PuGs that fall apart or have people who quit half way through, it’s nice to have the option to skip them.

    Overall, a fantastic piece of work.

    ExcelentHi and thank you for the time and effort you have put into this guide. I have not been playing wow for long. I was getting very frustraed before finding this guide. I was spending more time running here and there to finnish a quest.

    I have just finnished the 31-40 Alliance guide. Opps im 42.

    I had alot of fun with this. I did the guide with a friend YUP! the whole thing. We killed everything we saw. We did some grinding when we were waiting for one another to get on and quest again. But i went from 30-42 In 5 days. But most important i had fun.

    Im just printing off the next guide!

    Thanks once again!!

    Thank you!Propz to James and writing this guide. My First 60 took me almost 4 months to level on my own. Having that charachter in end-instance raiding, I decided to create a Gnome Warlock with the goal of 60 before TBC expansion. Thanks to your guide I managed to go from 30 to 60 in 6.3 days /played.

    I literaly went from 46 to 57 in the course of 2 days while I was sick at home.

    Most of this guide was easy as pie. There were a few things I did out of order (Like the dino you bring the meat too in ungoro) because I knew as a warlock I could solo these at a lower level then the guide recommended. Little things like that made for good XP.

    I personaly did not have to “grind” any one spot JUST for XP. The only grinding I did was for quest items.

    I look forward to hopfully seeing a TBC expansion 60-70 guide soon!

      Jan 25, 2007 @ 1:36

      Not hard to join…Just start at the lvl 30 Qs and work ur way up into ur lvl and ull see u will rather be having a problem with caching up with the guide… i did while lvling my first char since he was at about 40+ when i found it..
      just used a night to go trough the whole guide from 30 and pick up all the Qs i didnt know of, which was alot, it took me about 1 1/2 week to finish the rest to 60 RL time not played…
      and did alot of soloing DM SM and other instances to make money, and helping guildies with alt boosting…
      Good Luck

          I have to askI know its prolly the question you hate/get asked the most but how goes the progress on the 60-70 alli guide?im guessin any progress you had would be greatly apreciated by everyone like just a 60-65 or however much you have done so far.
          I’ve loved your guide the only thing it could use would be a disclaimer to follow it exactly cuz i skipped/missed a couple quests and the follow ups r killin me lol

    STVThe guides were excellent, overall.

    The only MAJOR stopper is STV (Stranglethorn Vale) and BB (Booty Bay).

    No one..and I mean *NO ONE* on a PvP server should *EVER* have to go through this abysmal hole of scum. This is where level 60s and 70s come to utterly ruin level 30 and 40s play time by incessantly griefing.

    The only reason to go to STV is to get your butt kicked repeatedly and come to the realization that Blizzard has no concept of ‘value for your money’ or ‘fair play’, hence the UTTER lack of rules, guidelines or restrictions on how you can be screwed over by PWNL (people with no lives).

    For the love of all thats good, please come out with a NON STV version of your guide.

    Sincerely, someone who has been stuck at 43 for two weeks because STV sucks.

    • img
      Fév 4, 2007 @ 8:29

      Sorry but,There is no alternative to STV at this level range, simply because there aren’t any other zones with quests to take you through those levels. So you’ll either have to play at low peak times, or have a high level player as bodyguard while you do STV.

      If you can’t do that, only way to avoid STV is to grind or do instances repeatedly.

        Just got a Dreanei to 60 using nothing but these guides!!I have just finished getting my Dreanei to 60 (/played approx 7 days). I used nothing but these guides. There are very good, however I do have some concerns:

        1) Groups are almost impossible to get for some instances, ST, Maraudan you can forget. Everyone and his dog is in Outlands. As such I didn’t (couldn’t) do the instances and had to grind. So prepare to grind if you’re planning on doing these guides.
        2) Some of the grind spots you claim to be good are just dreadful. But then again some are just awesome, the blood elf camp in Azshara (never heard of it before the guide) was just brilliant. But now that TBC is here, many old places that use to be farmed are no longer occupied. I grinded for hours on the Incendisiours (sp?) in Searing Gorge because no-one cares about TB rep anymore.
        3) Killing the guy in Felwood that drops the Flute is BUGGED if you are a Dreanei. This has been confirmed by GM’s. I killed him continuously for an hour and nothing. So you can forget that quest line.

        Some tips for people thinking of doing this guide:

        1) Do exactly as Jame’s tells you to do, at times you might think “but surely he’s got it wrong there blah blah blah”. He hasn’t just read on and you will see why you have done something that appeared pointless at the time.
        2) There are many times when you might be grinding out a few final bars of a level, but have 5+ quests to hand in. It will be very tempting to hand in the quests to bring the grind to an end. DON’T. It just messes stuff up (personal experience).

        Gratz Jame, thanks to you Im only a few weeks behind the rest of my guild who are due to start Karazhan next week. If it wasn’t for you I would probably be months off, or give up all together and go back to my old main.

        STV on a PVP server… npmy pvp toon is now 45+ hunter on a pvp server to prove to some friends its good enough there, and they told me id never come out of STV alive due to Ganking…
        True i died like 10 times from Ganking and 3 times from mobs while running from a Ganking MOFO,
        lvl ??= Chicken 😉 …
        Just use the vegitation to ur advantage, and just hide in it… most gankeres dont have the patience to w8 for u to show urslef even if they know ur around. it took me very short time to go trough STV and my friends dont say to much these days about the lvling capabileties of this guide…

        Rock on Jame!!!

        Many thanks (and a suggestion or 2)I’ve used your guide and your strategy for leveling in general to get 2 alts into the 60-70 range already, and I have yet to find a flaw. I did however have a couple suggestions to add directed to new players especially. Due to the mechanics behind melee and glancing blows/crit rates based on enemy level, I think a warning directed towards warrior/rogue (maybe shammy and pallys too) stating that fighting mobs on level or slightly below will SIGNIFICANTLY increase the damage they can do may help new players avoid frustration and increase their xp rate. Also, I was wondering if you could at least outline the areas/quests you did skip (possibly in a second file) so that these players who find your guide lacking can see what other options they have if they REALLY need something else to do. Anyway, thanks again for the wonderful guides, back to my (second) warrior alt. Peace.

        One SuggestionGreat guide Jame! Using it with a few chars and works like a charm!

        I have one suggestion to make though, to the very beggining of the guide, when going thru Dustwallow Marsh to the Barrens, you might drop by the Shady Rest Inn and click the big iron Shield on the fireplace, the hoofprints outside and the little badge on a plank inside, 3 separate quests to turnin Theramore, I’ve taken them, done the first part of hitting Highperch and Roguefeathers until 31 then hearth back to Theramore and turning them all in puts me like 3 bubbles into 31 for almost no time added at all, just some bag and log space.

      STV can be a challenge yes. But I find gankers will give up at some point.. I always try to do STV late and night or early in morning. NPC’s will stay online forever, gankers will not.

    2 lvl 60, and 3 in the making following ur guide 8) I have used this Guide on 2 chars to lvl 60 Hunter & Mage (btw such was the xp rate with em both that i never got past lvl 54 in the guide when it dinged 60) and im currently at 40 with my second Hunter on a PVP server, since after a friend and coworker told me it didnt work on a PVP server due to all the contested area Qs…
    Well after the first 10 lvls he shut up… 😉
    And plan to have his played time under 7days, with 5 proffs maxed, skinning Herbs first aid cooking and fishing }:)
    So to all u who r having any doubts or problems, with this guide, just begin reading it again, ur missing something, when u find out what, u will go ahead and lvl like mad again.
    Just remember what he said, kill all in ur way, preferably yellow…
    And also look at ur specc on ur chars since it matters a whole lot while lvling…

    P.S. PingPong try a 8) frost specc 8) and u have better controll due to slow mob speed and also its a bit mana friendlier…and look at the mage guide in here some where, i did alot of AOE killing while grinding, wich is very fun and made it very fun being a mage

    P.P.S. Jame! PingPong asked a question that i thought was a good about the shopping list, what r those things used for… (i know after reading the guide so often)
    But it would be very good for new players and seasoned players (who think they know it all) following this guide to know what those things r and specialy what qs they r used for and possible what lvl to use em in at the beginning…
    Maybe even color code the names of the items or enhance em abit in some way.

    anyways enough of my rambling

    THX for a gr8 guide and boosting my WOW exerience
    if i hadnt found it i would have stopped along time ago

    Best regards

    Alternative To STVYes there is one – that I know of…

    It’s a hellishly boring, grayscale, seldomly visited and often forgotten pit of despair known as Desolace… LOTS of quests. on my first chr all my friends were laughing at me and taunting me about my upcoming adventures in STV. I searched and searched until I found Desolace… It’s a LONG run from Astraanar and you will instantly long for the lush greenery of STV, BUT, I leveled about 9 lvls there! – then I went to STV where the first half of the quests were green but once to booty bay I was back in the yellow!

    About quests in Desolace:
    Here is my basic rules for whether or not to do a quest:
    1. If it involves killing stuff – DO IT (kills + quest = EXP!)

    2. Accept EVERY quest you can (regardless of color) and dump them as needed.

    3. I dont do quests that are gathering quests unless they are red OR involve killing for the collection (eg: Crunchy spider legs)

    Thats about it…

    Desolace tip, Choose Ghelkis Clan… it’s a hair easier IMO.

    I know that these guides pretty much do the dirty work for you. But, I never got cosmos due to my CPU not liking it (IDK why but it wont work) so I take a look at the guides to tell me what I am missing then I find it. like a tip guide and not a hand holding walkthrough.

    Anyways, if STV hates you like it hates alliance on my srerver (Dethecus PVP US) then take the long rediculous walk to Nijel’s Point in Desolace and get to questing!!! Good Luck!

    P.S. I actually found a Desolace ANTI STV guide online… I font remember where though…
    Search for “Anti STV Desolace” you should find it

    Jame’s Guides Kick AssJame,

    Great work on the guides. They saved me from wasting time running around finding what to do or where to go next. My one struggle, (and this may be a personal one since my friend does not agree), has been leveling from 20-30. I like to roll new toons to check out other classes and I have lots of fun, right until I get to 20. Then I’m like, WTF do I do now? This is on the Alliance side too… If there was any way possible, I would totally love a 21-30 leveling guide. Do you have one in the plans? I’m sure you are working on the 61-70 right now. Is it in the works? Thanks again for this totally awesome free guides. They are so much better than the guides that people are charging for. Let us all know how we can show our gratitude. Take care!

    Great Guide 🙂 I want to let people know that this guide is great. 🙁 I’ve seen others that you have to pay for that do way too much running around. 😀 Jame found quest circuits that hit all the major quests in a given lvl range, instead of running back and forth.

    :jawdrop: And for everyone crying about PvP in Stranglethorn Vale. I reached 60 on my first character ever, in 10 days /played. 😕 Yes PvP is a little hotter in STV. But the guide gets you through it quickly. It can be done. }:) I’m enjoying it more with my 2nd toon now though with prowl and tracking, (druid).

    😉 Thanks for the guide Jame.

    This Was AwesomeI dunno about that other guy but the guide from 30-60 worked great for me. I followed it all the way and did some instance runs when I had the time and by the end of it all, I was lvl 61. This was perfect man, all my rep was up, I got a lot of my flight plans and it was all soloable for the most part. Dude, I need a 60-70 guide, lol. keep up the good work!

    A couple of small pointsI have only just begun following this guide, but so far it’s doing what it’s supposed to. I’m following it closely and I am progressing very nicely. Thanks for writing it up.

    I would like to point out, however, that if you are a Caster, the grind from 30 to 31 in the Roguefeather Den and Screeching Canyon will not be as short and sweet as if you were a melee class. The Harpies have a Silence (“Deafening Screech”) and the Windcallers have a stun (“Gust of Wind”) that will take their toll on a cloth-wearer (especially in the cave where the respawn rate is extremely high).

    It’s not impossible, but prepare to spend more time than anticipated in this area because of Silence.

    Also, at the start of L32, when you are turning in the quests at Booty Bay and making it your home, please remember to take all the quests at that time, rather than going to Stormwind to train like in the guide. If you follow the way it’s written, you will make Booty Bay your home, travel to Stormwind, Hearthstone back to Booty Bay to grab the quests, then have to walk all the way north for the other quests, since the guide starts questing up there. Of course, you can always fly from Stormwind to Darkshire, walk to Northern STV for the quests, then Hearthstone to Booty Bay for the other quests, then have to walk back north to begin the guide (or fly to Darkshire and walk back down). *shudder*

    Grabbing the quests from Booty bay before training is the easiest way, since you can fly from Stormwind to Darkshire, walk down, and begin.

      Level 36 Step 1Level 36

      Step 1: Take a gryphon ride to Ironforge, go to the hall of explorers northeast of the Gryphon master and get the quest from Roetten Stonehammer [33] Reclaimers’ Business in Desolace. Also turn in the quest [34] Letter to Stormpike at Prospector Stormpike in the Hall of Explorers, don’t get the follow up. Then go to the inn of Ironforge and bind yourself there.

      It is really easy xp if you take the follow up Further Mysteries anyways since you simply have to give the letter to Magistrate Henry Maleb in Southshore, where you’re going anyways if you’re going scarlet monastery later.
      It isn’t more than round 500 xp you get for completing this quest but it’s 500 free xp so why don’t get it.

    Too fastThis guide is great, but when you include instances and class quests your level goes way past the level where you left the guide. I am now doing lvl 50 quests at lvl 53. Cant really complain though, Im really surprised that this guide is free. All I need now is a lvl 60 to 70 Alliance guide. Id be willing to pay for it if it is this good.

    Great guidesJame your guides are fantastic. I used your alliance guide (30-60) to get my human warrior to 60. Now I’m using your horde guide, and got my undead warlock to lvl 48 so far. Can’t wait for the level 60-70 guides, then I can finish getting my warrior to 70!

    Do you have a paypal account where people could send you donations? I can’t believe your guides are free 😀

      Jumping into the middle of it?What does a guy do if he’s level 38 and just found this guide? I have most of the STV quests done, and a good number of the BB’s. Do I just finish up to 40, then start fresh with the second chapter?

    ETA on 60-70I came accross this guide as I started up my shaman when BC came out. Now my shaman is level 50 and im moving onto the final part of the guide(Which I completly love and is helping me level very fast!). Now this has been asked before, and I dont want to sound like a dick for repeating it again (even though I probably am anyway), I’d like to know the ETA of the 60-70 guide if that is possible. THANK YOU!

    Great Guide!Hello Everyone!

    I have been a player in World Of Warcraft for quite some time now! I’ve been using simultaniosly (sorry about spelling!) the two Alliance guides Brian Kopp’s 1-70 Alliance Guide and Of Course, Jame’s Alliance Guide. All-in-All, I have to say, I have tested BOTH guides on 2 Characters~ Both Warrior, Human, And used Brian Kopp’s Guide 1-29 On One Character and then Jame’s 30-60 On another, and then PURE Brian Kopp’s Guide, and after recording…..Jame’s Guide one by apprx. 5 Days!!!! Amazing Guide Jame’s! Well-Done! Couldn’t Have Made it any better!

    FYI: If you ARE considering buying Brian Kopp’s/Joana-Mancow’s Leveling guide, over Jame’s, I wouldn’t say it’s the BEST purchase of your lifetime. Brian, Joana, you’re guides were good, but like I said I tested them, Jame’s was better!!

    Hope My Opinon Helped!

    Jame!- 5+ Stars, Amazing Guide..Especially b’cuz it was free!!!! Excellent work!! Can’t Wait for 61-70!!

    Awesome GuideGreat work on this. I like to think I’m good at leveling, but your guide has still helped me wonderfully. I got my hunter to 32 or 33 before starting your guide and not once I have I yet needed to grind. I hit 40 in under 3 days play time. 🙂 I know it was only a hunter, but I’m still proud of that. Anyway keep up the great work. It would be awesome if you made a 60-70 guide :P. After a few 70s you just want to get through it fast!

      Burning Crusade LevellingAnd no, I’m not after an ETA on 60-70 as I have two characters at level 70 now (druid and paladin) and didn’t have any problem levelling.

      I use Jame’s guide for 30-60 and think it’s great, I’m usually a bit ahead of the guide (or can skip grinding sessions) due to rested xp.

      [Wall of text incoming, not for the feint hearted 🙂 ]
      With regards to Outland levelling, I did try to write my own guide for Hellfire Peninsula (mainly to help my alts with quest routes). I think one problem with Outland is that you need revered with a lot of factions to get heroic keys. Ideally you should run Ramparts/Blood Furnace instances until you are 5999/6000 into friendly (when you stop getting rep for kills) before you start questing, then you won’t need as many Shattered Halls runs at level 70 for revered.

      Problem with this is that you will gain quite a level or two just from instance runs and any levelling guide that starts with ‘Run this instance 6 times before you start questing’ isn’t going to go down too well.

      Also Cenarion Expedition has a repeatable quest that stops at honoured, the best way to get rep with CE is to do this hand-in quest until honoured and then do the normal quests. Skipping out rep earning would make for a smoother levelling guide, but a much harder grind at level 70 (where the instances aren’t as easy to pug).

      First time round I was just enjoying the scenery until I got to Nagrand (at level 66ish cos I skipped out Terokkar), in Nagrand I just picked up all the quets I found and went through my log making a note of which direction each quest was in and made sure to do all those quests when I got to the area. Second time round it’s much easier because you have an idea of the follow-ups for each quests (and where the quests are, I had trouble finding the throne of elements first time round).

      If Jame releases a guide for 60-70 I will probably try it out on one of my alts, but so far I’ve not found any quests in BC that are overly time consuming or difficult (other than the bugged ones). Rather long ramble, but the point I was trying to get to is that questing in Outland seems to me much more intuitive to questing in Azeroth (with quests that lead you half way round the world and back and areas with quests going from grey to red difficulty).

      If it’s your first character just get out there and enjoy exploring the new content (my tip for alliance, buy a nethergarde bitter in nethergarde keep before you go through the portal), for alts you should have a pretty good idea which quests to do in which order anyway.

    Jame’s Alliance 60 – 70 Levelling Guide?Hey Folks

    Firstly, just want to add that I am a huge fan & supporter of the Jame’s series of levelling guides. They make WoW so much more enjoyable for those of us who aren’t seasoned gamers… Thanks Jame!

    Any ideas when Jame’s Alliance 60 – 70 Levelling guide will be out? While I have started on 60 – 70 on my own, and would no doubt get there at some stage, I would much prefer to follow his next chapter in his alliance guide series.

    Thanks again,

    Mai 29, 2007 @ 2:21

    SuggestionThe guide is great. I am using it to level several characters. BUT, there are several things I think you should change to your guide:

    1) When you tell us to save something (i.e. Put these in your bank) can you tell us why?
    2) The things that you tell us to buy from the AH… also tell us why we need these.
    3) Make a 60-70 guide quick!! :p

    Not a bad guide, but…This isn’t a bad guide, but I had a few issues with it. It tells you to go through STV during your low 30s, and then head to Hillsbrad/Alterac/Arathi at 35, and while I understand that doing it this way is theo more ‘streamlined’ way of questing, I prefer doing it the other way around, seeing as many of the MOBs in STV are 40-41 and will greatly hinder any low 30s toon from doing effecient questing there. But, that being said, it’s still a great guide for the quests themselves

    problem at the beginningHi there
    I just started to use this guide as i hit 30 lvl. Now i am lvl 31 and doin part in shimmering flats. Drop rate was good for me, i have these turtle meet and now i should grind to reach lvl 32 acording to this guide. But the problem is that i have more than half way to lvl 32. It would take around 2 – 2,5h of hardcore grinding. I haven’t dinged 2 times since started to use this guide and i am already sick of grinding. First harpies in 1k needles now this… Is it really faster than doin another quests? I’m starting to think if i shouldn’t go further on my own…

    Sorry for my english and ofc thanks for great and hard work you made doin this guide

    • img
      Juin 25, 2007 @ 10:32

      Hi Grochu, all depends onHi Grochu, all depends on your spec and how you grind. Normally it shouldn’t take that long for you to ding and not everyone dislikes grinding, as it is sometimes more relaxing than questing (matter of taste).

      If you want, post your spec and explain how you kill mobs and what type of gear you choose and maybe some improvements can be made so grinding becomes easier and faster for you.

      Furthermore this part of the guide is indeed heavy on the grinding, but it will become less soon. It’s just that in that level range not many good quests are around.

        Juin 25, 2007 @ 13:37

        It looks like this… i haveIt looks like this… i have a mage lvl70 and it took me kinda long time to lvl. Now i created warrior alt. Ppl say that they lvl from 43-50 in 11 days reading this guide so it is very good coz as i remeber it took me 2-3 days on each lvl (40+). I am warrior (arms speced). This character is kinda twinky coz i give him money from my main but i dont want to buy blue items for 100g each time i lvl… i buy greens for wise prices. my gear is usualy around 2-3 lvls different from my lvl so it is good.

        You said that this guide will be less-grinding-like l8er so i will continue using it.. will see.. thanks for answer.

        Now back to grinding 😉

    Juin 26, 2007 @ 23:30

    CritiqueI gotta say its a great guide. During spring break (1 week)i leveled a hunter from 1-42. This is after doing all the instances to get the loot i wanted. For a hunter this guide was great as hunters are great soloers and can kill mobs 1-2 levels higher than them with a much easier time than other classes. But with a warrior there is alot of flaws in the guide. I often have to get 1-2 levels before i can do the quest guide because some of the mobs are to high lvl. From what i understand you did this as a rogue, i think you should re-evaluate your guide based on other classes, as most mobs higher than the character arent worth killing. I know as a fact that priests, mages, warriors, and shaman, would have a hard time following your guide word for word, especially noobs. I also think the alliance guide should have a 20-31 section just like horde does. I usually use the other guide(youri i think is his name) but its pretty undescriptive and overall a horrible guide.

    Very nice guide ;)I followed this guide from lvl 30-60 and i must say that this guide is better than the ones you actully pays money for. I leveled a Draenei Male hunter and my mate levled a Draenei Male Paladin. we both got to lvl 60 quite fast 😉
    the guide is clearly recommended ;>

    I’m now lvling another draenei hunter, female this time 😉 still following the guide ;>

    Thanks JamesWould finally like to thank you for making this guide. I have used your guide to level 3 alts. A hunter, priest, and a Shaman. About to use it for a third time for a rogue.

    Thanks again for a great guide. It actually makes leveling fun. Only thing that sucks is making it to L30, but then its a breeze.

    Juil 17, 2007 @ 20:13

    Nice guide, but…I’m sure this guide will help some people, but I found it to be incredibly annoying at times. There are a few key issues that make playing by this guide completely impractical for me:

    Professions – For the most part, this guide completely ignores professions. Granted, it would be hard to write a separate section for each of the professions, but SOME mentions of certain things could be considered. For example, making note of various teachers for things such as first aid and fishing, or even the consideration that having ANY of the major professions is going to put a strain on bag space. Professions are there to help the player with stat boosts, armor, weapons, or to provide a means of making money. Simply getting to 60 is sort of pointless if you have to then go back to square one, nearly broke, and work up a profession.

    Grinding – Right from the get-go, Jame has us grinding. Not that it bothers me to occasionally pound away mindlessly on mobs, but I found myself grinding more than HALF of the first two levels for… nothing but xp. Come on. If you’re not grinding for a quest, it’s a WASTE of time. I could be elsewhere doing even simple quests for three times the xp I made killing several hundred harpies.

    Banking – There is only an offhand mention of what items should and should not be placed in the bank. It would have been really nice to know that I didn’t need certain items on my person until I would turn them in three levels later. I could have saved four or five slots in my bags just carrying around useless quest items. This becomes especially critical in STV, where traveling up and down the whole zone repeatedly just so I can empty my bags and turn in quests and those damn pages is seriously time consuming and frankly DANGEROUS. You have to pass mobs 8 and 9 levels higher than you EACH TIME. Come on… Want to really slow yourself down, get killed by a Mistvale Gorilla in the middle of STV… repeatedly.

    Quest Level – Yes, it’s always better to try and do quests that are yellow or better for higher xp, but some of the ones Jame has chosen just seem like a bad call. The Venture Co. Geologists are some of the fastest casters in the whole damn game. Fighting them three levels down gives you a HUGE aggro range and will almost certainly cause caster adds. Finding the ones on the fringes wastes TIME, which is the whole point of the guide. Sometimes, it’s actually faster to fly to a different zone and do an easier quest than to stick with a single zone and grunt through something that gets you killed multiple times. Not to mention repair costs.

    Easier Mobs – There are several points where a simple note that there are easier versions of certain mobs just over in X direction would have seriously helped. Sure, the turtles around the racetrack drop nice scales, but the level 35 ones will chew up a warrior or rogue in record time. Having to spend a potion or a cooldown for each and every one is wasteful, especially when he could have mentioned that there are level 31 turtles wandering just to the Northwest that drop the same scales.

      Umm..your an idiot?Incase you didn’t notice, this guide is a leveling guide marinda, not a guide on telling you how to make the best of your character by getting what professions and where to level them so the guide can hold your hand through your entire WoW experience, but simply a guide that will show you an easy way (and yes it is really, really easy) to go from 30-60 quickly.

      For your grinding complaint, it’s proven that grinding is FASTER leveling than it is to quest. That is, if you know how to grind and are a good grinding class. If you don’t want to grind, then go run an instance or something, you don’t NEED to grind where it says grind. Jame’s even said that at the beginning.

      Honestly, if you are so stupid that you don’t think you should bank and need someone to tell you “hey, maybe you should put the STV pages in the bank for awhile until you gathered them all up”, then you should just quit WoW now so you don’t make even more of an idiot of yourself. :O

      I’ve leveled now 3 70’s using Jame’s guides from 30-60, and to be honest, these “creatures” that are “so high level” never, ever appeared to me. Maybe you read the guide wrong and were too busy looking for lines that said “bank this” or “there’s a herb at 54,39 for you herbalists out there!” to notice the actual leveling guide. And again, you probably screwed up if you were facing creatures too tough for you.

      /end rant the real reason I got back my account lol..

      I find that Jame’s leveling guide is more useful than anything I have used before. I first made a post when I had a 46 Hunter and 42 Priest, now that Hunter and Priest are both 70, and I have leveled a Gnome Warrior to 70, and currently am leveling my Human Rogue to 70, who has just hit the 30, thus I came to this guide.

      I even recommend it for the good players, because this guide WILL help you level tremendously faster than if you tried doing it on your own. 🙂

    There’s something wrong with this guide!Hello Jame! I have just 2 remarks to make about this guide:
    1) At some point you actually forgot to put the Y part of the coordiantes! (Big deal.. actually had to work my brain for a change..)
    2) I’m constantly almost 1 lvl above the guide, is it jsut me or is this guide simply too good to be true?
    3) Ur amazing… Great asset to the WoW community, and a very very nice and beloved person!

    I’ve tried to lvl from 60-70 with Brian Kopp’s guide which actually costs money (I know some ppl who know some ppl who rob some ppl so that’s no problem for me) and I would like to tell you that yours is much better.. The language is very nice, comprehensible and amusing to read (Sometimes I had to read the same sentence from Brian Kopp’s guide 2-3 times in order to understand what to do which is rather hard when I have 2-3 mobs pounding on me), the maps are alot easier to understand, and basicly, U rule all! All praise Jame
    /bow 😀 😉

      Great guide Jame, I leveledGreat guide Jame, I leveled my warrior to 60 without it and it was brutal. I have now leveled a priest, and a warlock to 70, a hunter to 60, and am about to start a rogue and a mage using your guide again. I have posted links to it in my guild forum and recommend it anytime I have a chance.

      Brendoc, I found that I had the same thing happen to me, I was alway 1-3 levels above the guide and never had to do any non quest related grinding (I would do instances when I could or just skip those parts and the guide would catch up to me a little).

    Leveling and STVJame, I’ve got a lot of people telling me to do Western Plaguelands (WPL) instead of Azshara and Ungoro at level 52, because of the intense pvp on my server.

    Do you have any comments or advice for those of us in this kind of situation, other than taking a high level with us?

    Unlike many, I have the option to run with a 61 druid and one to two 61 paladins, but I realize not everyone has that luxury.

    Also, on a side note, I would recommend that at 51, everyone take a break from Leveling and do ALTERAC VALLEY (AV) Battleground for at least one afternoon.

    Pick up ALL the quests for the BG at the AV cave above Southshore and complete as many as you can for great xp (around 6000+ per!) and get yourself one of the great items for winning one BG.

    Hunters especially will want the Ice Barbed Spear which will boost your necessary hunter stats massively.

    I also HEARTILY recommend you pay attention and do *ALL* the available quests for SUNKEN TEMPLE, when Jame calls for them as the Helm of Exile you can get hold of is really nice for Battlegrounds, boosting your mana and some other stats.

    Kudos on a great series of guides, Jame, and Im looking forward to Outland =D

    works for duos tooMy son (human Paladin) and I (NE Hunter) are duoing through these guides. We started when we were both level 31, and keep skipping the “now grind till you’re xxx bubbles from yy level” thinking that the guide will catch up to us, but it never does, we’re still one whole level ahead (at 46 atm).

    Awesome guide Jame!

    I love this guide so much…I love this guide so much… I’ve used it on about five or six characters so far — it helped my druid from 30-65, my other druid (hehe) from 20-40 (and I’m still working on him), my warrior from 30-70, and a bunch of other characters who have just started The Grind.

    I only wish I’d known about it when I was leveling my paladin when I first started playing. 🙂

    I’ve now started using it for my new shaman and my brother started a new warlock. We recently got to 30 so we’re starting on the guide and I can’t wait. 😀

    Great GuideIt helped me level from 30-50 in 2 weeks, although i had a few problems in areas where i started following the guide to a location later realizing i didn’t have the quest, the benefits out wieghed the draw backs 10 fold, and since everyone is asking for a 20-30 guide, maybe you should just throw up a list of zone and in what order, for instance redridge(20) ashenvale(23) wetlands(25) darkshire(27) ect. just a suggestion =D

    Great Guide, Helped Me a LotThis was a very helpful guide. I used it when levelling my second character – a Paladin. I got him to 30, picked up the guide, and followed it almost religiously from 30-50. At that point, I followed it loosely, but I divereged a bit because I headed straight fo Outlands at 58.

    It certainly pointed out a lot of zones and quests that I didn’t do the first time around, and gave me a good benchmark of when I should head to each zone. Levelling was faster and easier this time around. Use the guide if you want to level quickly and get on with the real content.

    Well, honestly, I didn’t find that in Outlands I needed a guide as much as I did before.

    On the other hand, everyone I’ve passed the links to these guides to has been very grateful. They really rock.

    I did use the alternate to STV that runs you through Desolace (it is in the guide section), but was able to pick up quickly.

    things about your guidehi thank you very much for this guide it rocks
    but i what i missed in this guide is more details
    yea imagine someone playing wow and he did not do anything
    unless its in ur guide someone like me i was really searching for the fast way to lvl and ur guide can do that
    if it have the details about quests u can say in some steps take like 10 quests but it would save a lot of time if u said this NPC have quest #1 and quest #2
    get it from him and then go to NPC that have quest #3 and quest #4
    coz in ur quest i missed about 5 or more quests coz i couldn’t find them and they have a follow up quests so i have 2 search the quests i missed and do it which was gray to me to keep track of the new quests
    some picture about the guy who give the quest will be super gr8
    thx for ur gr8 guide

      Almost every instance isAlmost every instance is included in my guides. I always recommend to do the instances and my guides make you do the pre-quests to most of the instance quests.

      Doing more instancing than my guide recommends is a good thing, it means you might not even need to grind at all. So by all means, instance as much as you like 🙂

    Any minor itty bitty little hint on the 65-70 Guide ETA?Hey Jame, First off your guides are absolutely amazing, keep up the great work mate, and i have a confession.. I am madly in love with you!! :jawdrop: <3

    Aside from that, the main reason for this post is i'm curious if you may be able to give some what of a hint on when myself and i am positive many others who are dieing to feast their eyes on your sacred orgasmic exp writings *snaps back to reality* can expect your 65-70 guide? I have managed to bring myself to just about half way through 66 by the time i reached the end *cries* of the 60-65 guide and i'm really hoping the "before December 10th" could somewhat just maybe possibly be sooner? I would really like to continue on with your guide to 70, instead of doing it myself via mindlessly running around in my own "routes" or by solid instancing *begins to rip handfuls of hair out at the thought of it* as i had done with my Horde Priest. If you could at least give us an itsy bitys tiny weenee hint on when we can expect it, you would take the step from my hero to my god. And i would love you so much and yeah i'll stop myself there. It would just be *greatly* appreciated. 😛

But, will the new guides have to be followed from the beginning like the current ones, or will you still be able to pick up from your place in the guides at the time of the release of the new ones?

    Outland guide – starting at 60 not 58?Hey Jame,

    Just as everyone I love your guides – started to use it with my first character at lvl 35 and now leveling 2 more characters with it…

    Just saw that you started on an outlands guide… but shouldn’t that start
    at lvl 58? Or will you revise your 50-60 guide to go to the outlands at lvl 58? I went over for some better gear and never came back 😉 It is probably absolute obvious – but I just wonder….


    • img
      Nov 29, 2007 @ 15:39

      Outland guide – starting at 60 not 58?I don’t think he should start it at 58, it’s much easier in Hellfire Penninsula at 60 to level further than when you arrive there at 58, so it’s more efficient to get to 60 in Azeroth and then move to Outland. Plus: it’s less work for Jame 🙂


    • img
      Déc 19, 2007 @ 22:49

      Depends on your preferences.I leveled through 58 in Old World, mostly following the guide. Post patch, I could pretty much skip entire sections of the guide (which I LIKED, since some places I didn’t like, and some instances I was OK with avoiding).

      At 59, I went to Hellfire and started with the 60-65 guide. I was always about half a level behind the Guide’s listed level. After doubling my health, getting all the GREAT early armor upgrades (not to mention the weapons you can buy at Honored reputation), I was just about 62, and starting the Zangarmarsh section of the guide. I realized that if I kept at this pace, I’d have more grinding/questing to do LATER (as I neared 70), and I want to keep as many quests available to do at 70 as possible.

      So, I took my warrior back to Western and Eastern Plaguelands at 62. Holy cow. Everything’s green, you can pretty much AOE-pull things and whirlwind/cleave things down. The only thing that was even remotely a thread was the 60 elite crypt fiend in the Terrorweb tunnel. (Which, incidentally, squished me like a bug.) Other than that though, it was easy experience to get.

      It was MUCH slower than Outlands questing (and I imagine Silithus would be similarly less-rewarding). I did it on the expectation that it would make it easier to farm money later.

      In retrospect, though, I think I might have been MORE productive just grinding on mobs in the Dead Mire or other Zangarmarsh zone (working on Sporregar rep, for example) from 62.5 to 63. I had a lot of wasted travel time in the Plaguelands. (It was, however, darn fun. Revenge on Araj was sweet. :))

      Jame, thank you for the awesome guides. I recommend quite often, and will be using them on more characters in the future. It’d be nice if, after updating these to have less stuff to do post-patch, you were to keep a copy of the OLD guides, with their now optional-waves of quests. I really liked that. Also, you can probably do nearly an entire zone in one trip, instead of coming back later to do the harder quests, since you’ll have leveled more from the earlier ones. 😉

    Thanks a ton on this guide,Thanks a ton on this guide, it is by far the easiest thing to follow. A friend told me about it, and when i started i was a little off of the quest line, after a day i was going step by step. Everyone we know is asking us how we lvl so fast, we are just casual playing our alts up. Ive now surpassed 3 people who were over 10 lvls higher than me, and in 3 days ive got 7 lvls, and im talking about not much playing, i couldnt imagine how fast this would go if i had more time, ha ha. Anyways just a question, but im sure you have lvled tons of charaters to figure this stuff out, how many charaters have u taken the full way up?

    following the 60-65 section questionfor a player who did 58-60 in outlands without a guide, where would it be best to pick up the 60-65 section and carry on? keeping in mind many of the quests outlined have already been done


    • img
      Déc 4, 2007 @ 16:39

      That’s really something IThat’s really something I can’t help with since I don’t know what quests you already did and which you might have missed.
      My advice would be to check if you still have quests you haven’t done in hellfire (easy to do since the last patch with the big yellow “!” appearing on the minimap), check where they are in my guide and start from there.

      • img
        Déc 5, 2007 @ 11:37

        uh ohhmm I think I may have trouble with that, I’ve done quests that are scattered through out the 60-62 section in the guide. ah well, hopefully I’ll sort something out and level to 62, then follow the guide from zangarmarsh

    • img
      Déc 5, 2007 @ 23:31

      Wherever you’d be in theWherever you’d be in the guide otherwise. Just go through the guide, obviously ignoring quests you already did, doing the ones you haven’t, and catch up to it. If you’re behind in exp, grind at the Armory in Outlands while looking for groups for Blood Furnace, Slave Pens, and Ramparts for additional gear and exp.

      the same thing happend tothe same thing happend to me. Just start from the beginning, and skip the quest’s you’ve already done. It’s a bit tedious and time consuming, but it pays off in the long run. Trust me.

    Is the 65-70 guide still on schedule for the 10th?Hey Jame.

    Awesome guides… I’ve used them for a few characters now and absolutely love them.

    I thought I’d read somewhere that you were planing on releasing an alliance 65-70 guide by the 10th of December. I sure hope that it’s on it’s way because my latest character is 64 right now. I’d love to prep her with some rested xp bonus and some Coilfang gear.

    Also, were you planing on doing a supplimentary guide for level 70 questing? I know your goal was to leave alot of quests in outlands unfinished so that we can make some serious gold… I imagine you have plenty other projects allready. Just wondering.

        Updates because of leveling patchRecently the quests between 30 and 60 have been “revamped”, IE, elite quest mobs after 30 becoming non-elite mobs. Do you think there are any instances where farming those mobs would be better experience than what you have listed in your guide?

    You guys probably missed theYou guys probably missed the info on the news page. My guide will be released one day late. So it will be released today (Tuesday 11th). It is finished, but it needs to be text formatted and bbcoded first, and this will take a few hours.
    It should be released somewhere in the afternoon (european time).

    Thanks all for waiting, and sorry for being a little late.

      Also, I would like to say how much I appreciate the quality and accuracy of these guides and the fact they are free and easily accessible, so thank you for writing them. They have greatly increased my leveling rate of many characters.
      (still no 70, but he’s coming, just as I get my hands on the last installment!)
      Thank you again.

      release of 65-70Thanks Jame!

      I was just checking wow-pro when I read your message about it being released in the afternoon. It wasn’t there yet at 4:10 pm Dutch time, but when i refreshed the page… there it was 🙂

      Just in time for me, because I’m lvl 66 and am almost done with the 60-65 guide in Terrokar.

      Awesome news!Just wanted to say that you and your support crew are very impressive! Meeting your deadline to release the 65-70 guide deserves major kudos. If I was your boss I’d be sure you received a major raise in pay

      Using your guides takes the drudgery out of leveling the 3rd/4th/5th alt etc. to 70. Thanks again for your efforts and hard work.

        I leveled with the currentI leveled with the current 30-60 guides and i ended up being lv 61 at the very end of the 51-60 guide. so imo these guides are perfect the way they are especially with the leveling increase. I was able to skip every portion of where it said to grind out the rest of the level because i was already ahead in XP. Great Job Jame!!! Oh and on a side note, going into outlands at 61 paid off well, since now i am 64 when the guide said i should be dinging 63, and i also was able to skip all the said grinding sessions.

            Yeah, same for me. Level 60Yeah, same for me. Level 60 atm and half way to level 61 and i still have plaguelands / silithus to do. I’ve used your guides a few times so there were certain parts i knew i had to adapt so that certain regions didn’t turn grey to me. Re-arranging when certain areas are done (ie Azshara) and included elite quests that are now easy (Every quest outside Uldaman can now be cleared up quick and easy 🙂 ).

            Not sure what it was like for others but i only managed to get 1 run in Blackfathom depths and Sunken temple so questing alone is enough for leveling extremely fast.

            Good job James on your guides.

    Just a suggestionIn chapter two, some of the quests in your section on the Swamp of Sorrows involve the Harborage and Fallow Sanctuary. May I suggest adding [38] Mercy for the Cursed given by Anchorite Avuun in the Harborage to your list. It only involves killing three Cursed Lost Ones and it should take no time at all whilst killing all the other things in order to get the crystals and whilst escorting the Lost One’s dinner out of the camp :).

    Hey James I love yourHey James I love your guides. They help so much getting to level 70. Even though i got 23 day playime at level 65 because its my first character and I hang around and go afk a lot. But I hope to get there by 28 days. Id like to print this guild out its just so many pages and ink is very expensive. Im always doing instances and screwing the guide off. I hated doing feralas so i did 1 quest there it is so boring and it was just not fun. So I was always ahead of ur guide by half a level or so so keep up the good work and I hope u make a 70-80 guide when the wrath of the lich king comes out. See ya

    Tour guide integration?James, I saw someone ask a few weeks ago about a ‘tour guide’ version of your leveling guide. This would be a sensational extension of your guide.

    I print the guide out two pages /side, double sided, and read it continuously during questing, but it would rock if it was integrated into the tour guide mod.

    Just a thought.

    Keep up the good work.

    Waaaay aheadIm currenty level 56 in the 50 – 60 guide, and i’ve been able to skip the Un’Goro escort quest and the Sunkern Temple part, mainly because im level 56 at the startof the level 55 section.

    For those that are waiting for the new guides to come out, don’t. I’m A WHOLE LEVEL ahead of the guide, so technically I could skip most of it, but I won’t. Just for rep and things.

    Mages on this guide are pretty fast, expect for the parts where you have to drink. Other than that, it’s all quick, which i’m finding out.

    I can’t wait to finish out my character, and start many others in the near future.

    Still AmazingEven after the exp changes, these guides are still almost perfect the way they are. Now, instead of having grinding sessions every level or so, you just follow the guide as it stands.

    I got a level ahead of the guide around level 35, and have been ahead ever since (now level 48 and climbing)

    The only thing I would recommend is to add a section on Theramore. The new content added there is amazing for the ranges 38-42. I skipped Badlands all together and went there, and have been ahead of the guide even then.

    The great thing about the exp changes is that if there is a part of the guide you don’t like, you can usually skip it easily and it won’t hurt your exp. But the best part is that there are NO MORE GRINDING sessions, at all. The exp gained from quests should easily be enough to make you level.

    I still love these guides, keep up the good work.

    Making money in gameHello jame’s

    I have been using your guide for my human palidin since level 30. Now I just turned level 61 and I cant afford to even get the bracers from ironforge because i cant even come up with the 20 gold to aquire them no less the 300 gold needed for my level 60 mount!!! I have followed your guide religiously the whole time and barely make enough money to pay for my level training and armor upgrades cause i have yet to see a nice monster drop and all the quest items are bind on pick up so im forced to sell them to a NPC vendor for a few silver. So when i read in your quide that i could get loads of money when i went to outland I could hardly wait till got level 60. Well level 60 came and i went to outland using your guide and now i just made level 61 and guess what lol I got a whopping 11 gold on me so what gives??? What do i need to do to see that massive amount of gold that you brag so much about in your guide!! At this rate i will get level 70 without ever seeing my level 60 mount and never even be able to dream of a epic mount that would only ever be a very bad joke to me. 🙁

    Please is there anything you can do to help me out.

    Thanks Bob

      Are you selling certain things at the auction house? Things such as runecloth/netherweave cloth?
      Are you spending money to buy stuff at the AH?

      You’re definately doingYou’re definately doing something wrong. I never farmed anything and only did quests. By the time I hit 40 I could easily afford my standard ground mount. When I hit 60 I had enough for my Epic ground mount. Now I’m at lvl 66 and I have 1100 gold without doing anything but questing. Here are a few tips:

      -Loot everything, make sure your bags are big enough, you should never leave loot on a mob.
      -Make a lvl 1 auction mule character and mail everything you get to him to sell on the AH.
      -Sell everything thats not grey on the AH. Just do an AH search to see the prices and set your price competitively.
      -DO NOT buy anything on the AH, gear matters very little until you hit 70, you will get good enough upgrades from quest rewards/instances.
      -Pickup a gathering profession or two, skinning is a great one to make extra money from mobs you are killing anyway for quests.

      Just following these 5 tips should easily get you enough for all your mounts. I plan to buy my Epic Flying mount when I hit 70 and craft my epic tailoring set without any farming, its completely possibly.

      hey m8,

      I cant imagine howhey m8,

      I cant imagine how u can end up at lvl 61 with just 11G
      I use jame’s guide on 2 of my char and I ended up great gold wise. got 2 epic flying on both of my char.

      Jame’s guide is a lvling guide.. for gold I think u just hv to come up with other ideas. Like selling netherweave gold, or drops, or from ur profession. at least thats what I do. Ofc following the guide is great, but in between u gotta add time to make money and not only lvling if u wanna make gold and buy ur mount.

      Outlands gives alot of gold rewards.. am sure by the time u reach 65 u will afford to buy epic mount.

      and just want to say this is not jame’s fault imo. he guide us thru lvling.. not making gold. for that u need another guide :p lol

      for Jame, keep up the good work and looking forward to the revamped guide! *2 thumps up!!*

      Impossible, if done rightI’m about to slide into 57th level, and every piece of equipment on me is blue or better, and I’ve got about 1000 gold on hand. As long as you have ‘some’ idea of how the market works and you’re selling your greens in the AH, as well as your cloth drops, you can make a killing just picking up trash without having to do anything other than drop things into the AH and reap the rewards.

      I’m a market player, I buy and sell, I tailor and disenchant, and I jingle when I walk. -But- I’ve made more than 50G -every single day- just picking up cloth and greens during normal levelling with this guide…

      Are you making sure to sell things in the AH and not vendor things mindlessly?
      Are you dieing once every 10 minutes (costing yourself a fortune in repair bills)?
      Do you loot everything from the monsters? (even if you were looting junk greys and selling -everything- to the vendors you could probably put together 5-10G daily)
      Have you checked your pockets for holes?

    • img
      Déc 28, 2007 @ 6:53

      Something doesn’t sound rightI’ve been using Jame’s guides since level 30 for my human rogue, and just finished the level 60-65 yesterday (and hit level 65 right on cue).

      I bought my regular mount as soon as hit level 40 (and had 45g leftover), earned & blew over 200g on overpriced blue armor from the auction house between levels 50-56 (I know, I know, not a wise choice), and bought my epic mount at level 62 (which left me with 7g to my name).

      After being basically broke at level 62, I managed to build myself up to 534g by level 65. Granted, I did run Stratholme once with some guildies, where I picked up 62g worth of loot (after vendoring the trash & BoP and auctioning off the BoE).

      But even if you subtract the 62g from the instance run, that still means I managed to earn 472g solely by questing/grinding in Zangarmarsh, as directed by Jame’s guide.

      Follow the guide, and the gold will come. Just keep a couple things in mind:

      1) Make a very, very big effort to not die, as dying means spending a ton on repairs. Personally, whenever my HP drops below 40% or so, I back off & bandage, always make sure I’m well-fed, and make it a point to have 3-4 stacks of health pots and 3-4 stacks of bandages on hand, just to make sure I won’t die.

      2) Kill EVERY mob you encounter on your way from point A to point B, regardless of XP. Sure, that gray mob won’t net you any XP, but it’ll more than likely drop some loot (usually vendor trash, but sometimes good, auctionable stuff) & perhaps a bit of coin. That cash adds up very fast. And if it’s gray, you should be able to kill it so quickly that it won’t put too much of a dent in your XP/hour.

      3) Auction anything & everything that has even the slightest bit of demand. You’d be surprised at the huge amounts of gold people are willing to pay for useless junk. Take advantage of this.

      Here’s hoping things turn around for you, and that you’re knee-deep in gold very soon.

      The trickI think the trick was to not upgrade your armor. As a Mage, I had got to level 60 with level ~30 gear, and had no problems critting like a glassconnon.

      I don’t know if it differs from other classes, but armor upgrades aren’t needed. Outland Greens at 60 cover up any gear upgrades you need. I’m level 62 now, with around 420g, saving up for my ground mount. Considering I had around 10g at level 50 for my twink account, I think i’ve done very well.

      Like I said, I don’t know if you need to gear up for different classes. Just saying, you get all the gear you could ever want to 60 with the Hellfire Pen quests.

      Good luck!

      O_othis is a guide for leveling, if you want money and lots of of it, guess what, you have to specifically do that, it doesnt just fall into your lap, ive not struggled with with money, but when ive needed it ive spent time making it, if you want to power level, you need a cushion of money to save you time, or do without untill your finished leveling, up to you. There are things in the game like most of these types of games that are time sinks, getting gold is one of them, on the other hand once you get to level 70 it will most likely be much easier :jawdrop:

      mking money in gamewell im not going to lie or get into argueing matches about it but i have all my bank slots filled and all the bag slots bought and equiped with 14 slot bags that are full of junk green items that no one will buy in the AH so I am forced to sell to NPC venders for very low prices and i am doing the quest that jame’s recomended for the level 60 armor set and every time i do a part of that quest line it is 40 gold here and 60 gold in supplies and every time i level my palidin it is a rediculous amount of gold training the new spells he gets. So yes I did only have 11 gold at level 61 hopefully it will get better as i go up higher because if it does not i will never be able to afford my level 60 mount no less even dream of 1 day getting my epic mount. Cheers But I will say this the guide is 1 of the best i have seen for leveling and i will just have to get used to never having the nicer things in the game and always being broke.

        Outlands > Level 60 gearYou should keep in mind that the current 30-60 guides were written before The Burning Crusade was released. I have browsed the 50-60 guide and noticed that towards the end, it emphasizes going for gear and quests to prepare for level 60 endgame. You can now get better stuff within an hour of questing in Outlands. Forget the level 60 dungeon set armor and enjoy playing Outlands.

    I’m just wonderring, do you think I’m doing wrong?
    I have followed your guide really carefully. At the moment I’m 64 with 8-9 bars left when the guide says I should be very close or if not level 65. I’ve done all quests said in the guide and so on. And I don’t really want to farm 8 bars, wich will take some hours (boooooooooring :P)

      I can only see a fewI can only see a few reasons:

      You are lucky with quest drops (and thus kill less mobs)
      You don’t have much if any rested bonus, ever
      You try hard to avoid killing anything besides the bare minimum to complete quests

      Maybe you started with my guide at an earlier level than was recommended?

        Déc 31, 2007 @ 19:54

        I have currently the sameI have currently the same problem, but I will say that I don’t kill everything in my path and in my haste to reach 70 (this is one of many characters) I don’t do instances or ever have much rested XP.

        This however, hasn’t limited me very much at all. I’m 68 doing the level 69 part of the guide and haven’t had any trouble at all with any quests being too hard or too high level.

        Still a great guide even if you skip the “kill everything” and instances.

    A couple of extra suggestionsHi Jame.

    I just thought it would be a good idea to add in an alternate way of going though some areas that might give certain reputation to different factions such as Honor Hold or Aldor/Scyer.

    I understand that the guide is a leveling guide, and it is. It is a very good one. It’s just that I plan on getting exalted with a couple of factions, like Scryers, though turning in the items to gain their rep. Maybe you could add a sub section to the parts of the guide where you would gain reputation though non-repeatable quests and say where to go grind for the items to get the reputation for that faction, and have it equal to the amount of xp you would get from the quest.

    Although it might be slower than questing, the grinding might be wanted by some people who want exalted with the faction without going though the quests, planning it out better etc. Plus, the quests could be saved at a later level, maybe even level 70, which would mean you would get more money for that flying mount.

    Like I said, it’s just a suggestion. If the 60 – 70 guides ever need editing, you could add that in, maybe.

    Baíley, Ahn’Quraj 🙂

    Thanks Jame!Just wanted to thank you again for the guides Jame! I managed to get my new mage to lvl 70 in only 9 days by following your guide from lvl 30 on up! I was able to do this while skipping the last section of your guide in Netherstorm. So I was able to purchase my regular flying mount, hit lvl 70, and still have over 2000g without ever touching Netherstorm or Shadowmoon Valley! Hopefully there is enough gold left in those quests for my epic flyer. I would love to see a guide from you on questing those 2 zones at lvl 70. Anyway thanks again, here’s a screenshot for you 🙂

    <3Amazing guide jame, followed it from 30 and now im 60 ^^ cant w8 to get all the outland gear i have waited for since 58 🙂

    read through the replies and saw many people had problems with money, which i think is rather weird.
    i had my mount at 40 and i just bought my lvl 60 mount, with around 20g left and loads of items to auction off. my advice: use the auction house, green boe’s from almost any lvl sell for more than 2g each. my mining skil also helped decent bit, but not near as much as selling stuff in AH was. and maybe leave that expensive secundary profession for a while, do it at 70 😉

    Simply AmazingHappy New Year All!

    Lets get right to business here. I followed your guide down to the last note, well sort of, and managed to get my lock from 30-70, including the 1-30, in little under 14 days. In my book pretty decent, others may disagree, but I am playing to have fun; not trying to break any records.

    At level 61 I had a little over 900 gold. I dinged, lupped or whatever, 70 when I were halfway level 68 in the guide. Had 2200g at the time.

    Shadowmoon Valley and Netherstorm here I come. Should be at least 5-7k gold waiting and that probably only sums up what I can think of. Thinking of following rule “1: kill everything that is on your way” and it shouldn’t be a problem.

    All in all, I merely wanted to thank you for this awesome guide. Really helped a lot.

    Cheers mate

    ThanksI really appreciate you writing these guides =] Ive leveled a mage to 64 with them, and I’ve made an alt warlock, who’s currently 34 with the aid of your guide and the site =]. The only trouble Im having is the goblins in STV, they are too closely packed together 🙁 Ive had no problem with money so far, and seeing as though my 40 mount is free I dont need cash that much. The 14g I currently have will last me =]. Thanks again for the guides.

    Really good guide mate, youReally good guide mate, you must have put loads of effort into this, and for that I take my hat off to you. You could have chosen to sell this guide, but instead you put it here for free. :jawdrop: Thankyou so much! 😀 Anyway, im level 62 now, followed your guides since 30, and they are awesome. 🙂

    P.S one more thing, are you gonna be making a 70-80 guide?

    Thumbs upJust felt like giving some feedback on this awsome guide. ^^,

    I lvled my first character to 70 without any help from this guide, it was a hunter and it took me 29 (!) days. Now when I’m playing on my alt druid, I went from 1-60 in 5 days, with the help of your guide from 30 and out.

    So awsome guide mate, thanks for doing this for all of us 😉

    made possible by a level 70 instance running an alt post patch 2.3

      Yes, but that doesn’t reallyYes, but that doesn’t really interest us. What we’re interested in is how fast someone can level to 60 or 70 following the guide, without any powerleveling. 🙂

      Yes of course it isYes of course it is possible. You should start at level 40 or so in the guide to grab some of the quests which have follow ups.

    Great Guide mate 😛 this guide is really good helped me alot. from 40’s to 60’s i found money making easy i just went minning and skinning and sold pretty much everything on the ah. very well written. although i have one suggestion. with doing mara i honestly think you dont have to do this with the current patch i was pretty much 2 lvl ahead of the guide so i stopped “killing everything on the way” and i was still ahead after skipping mara. just a suggestion anywho. loving it with the 60’s lvling me rather fast ty. 😛

    Thank you!Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for the virtual blood, sweat, and tears you put into making this guide. I picked it up around level 40, when as a new player to WoW, had trouble figuring out which area to go to next to continue leveling. The efficiency of this guide is what makes it great. The only hard part is resisting the urge to go turn in the 10 (Complete) quests I have and not following the guide lol. Thank you again for improving my WoW playing experience and enabling me to catch up with some friends I knew from high school that all have multiple level 70 chars. 🙂

    Follow upsI think that you should put purple text for quests that have follow ups, because since patch 2.3 i have been way ahead of the guide but am very afraid of missing some important follow ups. Perhaps you can put really important follow ups in another color or bold them.

    The other option is re do the guilds for 2.3 but i understand how much work that would be, and if you dont want to i would undstand (PLEASE DO! 😀 )

    I really do love your guides, had alot of problems before them but now wow is more fun and exciting than ever! well thats just my 2 cents. 🙂

    But for the quest in the shimmering flats where you have to kill those birds and get there hollow bones i found it fairly hard to find them ex specially when there were lots of people there but if you would like i happened to find a realy nice place that has at least 10 of these birds hanging around.

    I just love your guides II just love your guides I have used them since level 30 for my hunter (BM speced.) I am now level 60 and flew to 60 at an alarming rate. I am new to the game so it probably wasn’t common to see someone go from 30 to 60 in a week. I have been accused of power leveling and even some guildies were convinced that I had hired a person to level my account lol. I have enjoyed the content of the game with this guide immensly.

    The only problem was even without grinding I was so far ahead of my level for the quest lines I was doing they were green and some were even grey. I had to skip ahead and then started falling in the it is chain so I was missing a lot of content of the game.

    The XP rate should be the same between 60 and 70 as it was befopre 2.3 so I shouldn’t have any issues following your guide then. I have followed it from 30 to 60 since 2.3 and I highly suggest to those following the guide now since 2.3 increased amount ot level and XP required to level lessened to exclude any grinding suggested it simply isn’t needed and will only make you get less XP if you enjoy the quest lines and want to do them.

    Jan 15, 2008 @ 23:07

    A thank you. :)I just wanted to thant you for the great guide, as I am new to WoW I spent levels 1-25 being utterly confused by everything.

    Since I found your guide, it has taught me much about the game, and even more so in the ways of avoiding things that are huge wastes of my time. Like spending hours wandering around looking for the next bunch of quests to take me further along. This is a good guide in respect with things to see and quests to do. It also worked on my need to explore the world and accomplish things at the same time. It has taken me through to level 56 in a short amount of time, and for that I owe you my thanks.

    I don’t need to ask people silly questions and annoy them and as I see things, this guide has given me legs to walk on in the game and has taught me the basics I need to know when progressing through things not in the guide. 🙂 Thank you, much appreciated. <3

    Amazing GudeI just wanted to praise this guide for being absolutly amazing. Yeah, there might be some things here or there that could be tweeked but nothing is perfect and this guide so far ( lvl 49 at the time of this post ) is fantastic. I have been about 2 lvls or so ahead of the guide as I started it at about lvl 35 at the begining but it works great for a casual gamer like me. I don’t follow the guide exclusively and I embark on some follow ups not mentioned, or quests not mentioned and I have no problems what-so-ever following the guide. I just wanted to say thank you and keep up the amazing work.

    Great guideI started this guide at level 31 and now I’m 67 .I can say it really went fast , although I didn’t play so many hours a day . I think it would be great if u would make another guide , so u can get us well geared for level 70. I know it’s not easy to write a guide , but u did the impossible on your perfect guides . So I hope you’ll think about it ..

    Thanks alot !Well i finally think its time for me to give you some credit for your work aswell 🙂 So far i have lvled 2 chars from 30-60 and one from 30-68 so far using your guides. A friend of mine found it by covincident and showed it to me, and I have been totally addicted to it ever since 🙂

    The best thing is that you can jump abit back and forth in it, and since i like to do alot of my lvling in instances that is essential for me, the discriptions are allways accurate and easy to understand!

    Once again thanks alot for the big effort and keep it up 🙂

    AWSOME!!Awsome guide James I used about twice (horde and alliance) and was able to get to charecters to 70 1 alliance and 1 horde in about three months cause I had school, and alot of exams and not that much time to play.

    One thing I recomend for anyone who didnt have enough money to buy thier mount / train spells is to download the auctioneer addon (google it) it has helped me sooo much! I was able to get both mounts at 40 and at 60 thanks to this addon.

    AmazingAll of these guides are amazing. I had a serious case of alt-itis – 4 characters in the high 20s/30s but no 70. I kept getting stuck in my level progression, and then I would get bored, and then I would make a new character. In any case I found this guide and it was GREAT. I was able to finally level up quickly and as a result reached 70 for the first time two days ago.

    Need helpI started the guide at lvl 36 and did all of the Desplace quests. I finished in the Badlands and am now level 41. However, next on the list is STV. I have not done any of the quests in STV that was listed for levels 30-35. What should i do?

    • img
      Fév 4, 2008 @ 21:25

      Well, doing the quest inWell, doing the quest in levels 30-35 will give you little experience so in my opinion just skip those quest. Follow Jame’s guide for the quests you can do and make up the experience by grinding and instance runs. Once you get to a new location, you should be able to follow Jame’s guide again.

      I think at your level, you should focus on leveling up fast and go battle grounds to build up your honor points. Once you reach 70, you could use your honor points and battle ground token to buy epic weapon. Check wowarmory for the arena season 1 reward.

      Hope that helps.

    Great GuideFirst of all, I want to thank James for the great leveling guide. Excellent, excellent work. We (warrior and priest) followed the guides since lvl 30.

    I do want to make a suggestion: right about lvl 68, you could mention in the guide that going to instances (Auchindoun) will fill about 1/4 of the xp bar each run. So about 8-10 runs will for sure get to lvl 70.

    This way you not only saving all the quests later for gold (you will need a lot of gold for flying mounts, etc) but also having a chance to upgrade your gears.

    Of course, if you like to solo questing, by all means follow the guide (I did mention how great the guide was above).

    What I’m suggesting is just an option. Each instance in Auchindoun has only 2-3 bosses and takes about 2-3 hours to finish and it fills about 5 bubbles of xp (20 bubbles total on the xp bar).

    My gf and I both ding 70 in instances. Spend all our gold on the flying mount. Then we went back to the guide for the quests at Blade’s Edge Mountains. In about 5 hours following the guide we each made about 600 gold.

    So now in additional to following Jame’s guide, we also doing daily quests.

    I thinkI guess I should clarify exactly what I meant when I said it wouldn’t be much fun in WOW if everyone had the same gear. Anyone who has played guild wars PVP can tell you that what set that game apart from world of warcraft is all the different skill combinations that were available. If you chose to be warrior with mage killing abilities-lots of interupts- then your ability to kill another warrior wasn’t as good as the warrior with armor penetrating skills. With world of warcraft, each build while different based on talents, is still just about the same until you add gear into the equation. I agree with sane mike that it would take an immense amount of strategy to be able to beat a team of 10 other players that were nearly identical to your team, but I think it would come down to who can mash the buttons faster because a rogue would be fighting another rogue the same way. Where is the fun in that? Part of what makes guild wars PVP so great is that with 100’s of skill combinations your chances of fighting the same class build twice is slim to none and that for me adds an element of surprise; thus keeps the game fresh.

    In the endless thanks for uIn the endless thanks for you jame, here is another one, but written only to encourage you. I’ve been watching wow-pro evolve since the beginning of 07 and I am proud of the continuous evolution i’ve seen ;). You and the rest of wow-pro have had the greatest impact on my wow. I’v leveled a warrior and a hunter, and with the new patch have noticed many odd thing that prior didn’t exist(warr started on 12 march 07)ex:mob changes elite->normal, quests made aprox all soloable,etc. I was just wandering if there exists a jame for macros maybe? why? Because although I’ve done mine by reading and learning from every where, I still feel I’m missing somthing that could further improve my knowledge, so I must pray to you one more time for a bit of wisdom, a hint on where I should be looking. Truly for ever thanking you 🙂

      Not sure if you mean this byNot sure if you mean this by macros, but here is how I play:

      I bind almost everything to a hotkey. Using WASD keys to move and strafe, and right-click mouselook to aim.

      I use the most accesible hotkeys for the most important and urgent spells, and harder to reach hotkeys for spells I use less frequently.

      Once you know all your keys by heart, you gain a tremendous amount of time compared to people who click. And you also can always keep your eyes on the action, instead of having to look at your bars to aim with your pointer. On top of that, you can cast spells easily while moving and strafing around an opponent, etc etc.

    Here we goWell, I found this guide posted in the WoW forums. I have a few characters prime level for this guide, mostly due to starting new toons over and over again. My friend wants me to be his arena partner…. sooo I kind of want my first 70 for a few reasons now. =p Thanks for taking the time and effort. Here goes nothin’.

    Hmm. Crappy internet + Low RAM = getting owned in every contested area in the game =p

    Post 70 GuideHey Jame,

    thanks for the great guide! Keep it up 🙂 . I have just hit lvl 70 after completing your lvl 65-70 Alliance Lvling Guide, but I am unsure on how i should approach doing the remaining quests. I think a guide to cover all the remaining quests in Outland would be very useful to folowers of your guides because it will get them the money for their 280% flight mount in a much more fun and time effiecient way.

    Also i was wondering if you would do a guide on the talent bulids you would use. I was also wondering about the techniques you use to kill a mob depending on your class and talent build because when you were reffering to ‘Kiting’ i was lost, and wondered whether i wasnt killing the mobs using the best moves possible.

      I do plan to make a post 70I do plan to make a post 70 quest guide, not sure when, but it’s on the to do list 🙂

      About other guides, well I don’t know, maybe I’ll do some class guides later on, but that’s a distant project.

      Kiting: it’s the act of killing a mob without letting it touch you, through the use of movement impairing skills, such as frostbolt, frostshock, entangling root, etc. and ranged attacks.

    Just a questionHello everyone,
    Dont get me wrong, Jame’s guide is great, i already got a level 70 with it, but i was wondering, i heard a lot of people saying that Brian Kopps Alliance leveling guide is better. Can anyone tell me what the difference is? I really dont know

    Thanks, Murdercats

    • img
      Fév 18, 2008 @ 20:45

      Well, I’ve been told by manyWell, I’ve been told by many people (and by many I mean more than 50 at least) who have tried both my guide and his guide that mine worked alot better for them.

      People tend to say “This guide is better” without even having tried mine. They just assume the other guide is better simply because they had to pay for it. I guess I would say that too if I had paid for a guide, because hey, I’d be pissed if I had paid for something I could have gotten for free (and maybe of higher quality ^^)

      My guide is free and probably better from what I’ve heard. I can assure you it’s highly efficient, there isn’t much you can improve in it. If I were you, I’d pick the free guide 😛

      • img
        Fév 19, 2008 @ 21:09

        It’s trueAfter using Jame’s guide, and then taking a look at Brian Kopp’s.. it doesn’t even compare. Jame’s is exponentially better. Brian Kopp’s guide is made for hunters, and in some cases, even gives you instructions on what hunter specific spells to use, never for any other class.

        His guide has very little detail and it’s easy to get confused or so something wrong. Jame’s is always easy to read and I’ve never made a mistake using his guide as he always explains what to do, on the other hand Brian Kopp just says “Get X quest. Go to x,y and do quest X.”

      Fév 20, 2008 @ 7:29

      Brian KoppsRight after I told my friend about this guide, He told me he had downloaded Brian Kopps guide. All it is: Coords. That’s all that’s in it. It’ll say, go to (36,48) get quest. step 2: go to (64,73) kill mobs. step 3: go to (36,48) hand in quest. It’s horrid. This one is amazing =D

    Your GuideThough I’m sure you’ve heard this before, I’d just like to let you know how much i appreciate you, and everyone else who contributes to wow-pro for making these free guides. I have nothing but the utmost respect for you, for spending a large amount of time creating this guide and tweaking it to make it perfect. I, as I’m sure others have before me, was accused of powerleveling my character due to the rapid speed at which i was leveling. So, long story short, I hope that karma is real, and in turn you win the lottery or something for doing this 😀

    Fév 20, 2008 @ 4:26

    that kopps’ guide isn’t as good.hey jame,

    Once again great guides, I had a friend use the guide and he practically said this about Kopps guide: it’s more a one-class guide, it works for all classes but it wastes time telling hunters what to train etc (does this with all classes).
    And it keeps going on like that, yours is better, simpler and alot faster than Kopps’ guide and yea his guide costs money ( and anyway I wouldn’t trust a guide you had to download (if you pay/download) 99.9% of them are keylogged)

    WowJames this is coming from a heavy hardcore every night raider. I just want to thank you so much. the only time i had to level my alt was during the weekend and i followed this guide every inch to outlands. One suggestion is to go to outlands at 58, theres really just no reason to stay in azoroth. Even if you want money you can just do every quest in hellfire, zangarmarsh, terrokar, nagrand, and some in blades edge and you can get 70 without touching smv or netherstorm.

    • img
      Fév 20, 2008 @ 14:29

      You’re welcome!

      About goingYou’re welcome!

      About going to Outland at 58, this is a topic where I totally disagree, I’ll explain why:

      1. First, I’ll remind everyone that when you do quests at level 70, you get extra cash instead of the EXP reward you should get.

      2. The old world quests’ exp rewards have been increased, they give a lot more exp now. In Felwood you can already find a few quests which give more than 10K xp (that’s just as good as Hellfire and Zangarmarsh). Many previously “elite” quests are now normal, yet their rewards are still the same, which means you sometimes get good items for little effort. If they are about as good as Outland quests, why skip them?

      3. If you skip, say, all the plaguelands quest, you won’t be able to go back there and do them once you hit level 70, they will be grey and it will be a waste of time to do them. This is not the case for the quests in the last three zones of Outland. When you hit level 70, if you still have Blade’s Edge Mountain untouched for example, you can go there and get an insane amount of cash.

      4. If you go to Outland at 58 (and I’ve tried it), there will be quests you won’t be able to take. For example, a bunch of quests in Hellfire require level 61 before they are available. There’s no way you can get from level 58 to 61 with just the Hellfire quests which are available to level 58-60 players, unless you always play with rested bonus, but even so, it might not be enough. This will result in you skipping some quests, or having to go back to HFP once you hit 61 in Zangarmarsh, and that’s far from efficient. If you do it my way, you’ll complete every quests in very efficient circuits, with little running around.

      5. If you go to Outland at 58, you’ll most likely have to use a large amount of quests in Netherstorm and Shadowmoon Valley to reach 70. When you know that some quests in those zones gives more than 15000XP, imagine how much more gold you’d be getting if you did them at level 70, instead of level 69?

      6. I’ve tried it, leveled a mage to 70 on a new server, did it my way, and had 6200gold once I had finished all SMV and Netherstorm quests. And that was BEFORE patch 2.3, before the old world quests got a boost. So you can only imagine how good this could be now, and I’m definitely going to try it out as soon as I get some time 🙂

      Last but not least, I understand why people want to go to Outland at 58, the gear upgrades you get in the first few quests are great. So if you really feel that you need those upgrades as soon as possible, here is what you should do:

      – At level 58, go to Outland, do the first bunch of quests in Hellfire, get those nice upgrades, then go back to where you left my guide in Azeroth, finish the Plaguelands circuits, etc, and then go back to Outland. That way you get it all 😛

    21-30 guideJame how come you didn’t make a 21-30 guide for the alliance? I feel as if you are giving the horde special privleages for being the bad guys instead of the good guys. Just kidding. But why not write a guide for 21-30? Thanks, By the way your guide is awsome!!!!

    • img
      Fév 20, 2008 @ 14:36

      Long story short:

      2 yearsLong story short:

      2 years ago I was leveling an alliance reroll, and when I hit STV, I was once again struggling to remember which was the most efficient order to those quests. And then Snowflake suggested I should write it down and make a guide out of it. And that’s how it started.

      I decided to start at level 30, because before that it’s relatively simpler to figure out where to go, and the zones are less complicated. However with hindsight, I realized that the 20-30 levels deserved a guide, so that’s why I did one for horde.

      In any case, we’ve got a very good 20-30 alliance guide now thanks to Boston, so it’s pointless for me to write one 🙂

        Fév 20, 2008 @ 15:18

    This guide is great!I decided to level a shaman alt as Enhancement spec, and tested your guide and worked out great. So, shamans, you can do this leveling guide no problem! Currently my shaman is level 62 and was level 60 by 5 days /played , even with a little extra instances and such that slowed me down.

    Though I suggest an alternative to the 30-31 part. Grinding is just not my thing at all! 🙁 For those that do not want to grind can perhaps gather all the quests for Gnomeregan (I know the instance is hard to do, but it can be easy if the party averages level 30+) and do that for some experience.

    Oh and I did happen to buy the Patterned Bronze Bracers and not sure if this has been said before but I never ended up using the bracers for anything.

    Also while doing the guide I happened to jump 5 levels past where we were somehow. It was probably just the experience buff from 2.3. On the plus side, it made doing the lower level quests a breeze.

      The patterned bronze bracersThe patterned bronze bracers are used at the very end of the 30-41 guide. Here is the quote:

      [quote]Then go talk to his assistant Lucien Tosselwrench. Get quest [color=#cc9933][b][42] Stone is Better than Cloth[/b][/color] and complete it, as you should still have [b]the patterned bracers[/b].[/quote]

    JameI’m a veteran player; I’ve been playing wow since the beta and leveling has always been a pain in the butt for me.

      I’ve also been around withI’ve also been around with WoW since the beginning and was fortunate enough to be able to play the hours needed to level without guides at first but i’m talking serious time put in, I have a few online business run from home so I get to play however often as I want. With all the changes over the years i’ve read some guides and have to say your’s is hands down the greatest and proved to be the best for leveling. I haven’t played as much lately as I got sucked into the online poker and backgammon world were you can win a few bucks for the time spent playing which is always nice in comparison to playing WoW, while leveling in the game is always a good feeling so is winning a game or hand and getting paid hehe.

    Hi, and thanks.Sometime around spring 2006 i discovered your guide. If i recall correctly, there was only a 30-41 part back then. I was unemployed and spent most of the day leveling, and raiding nighttime.

    But i hated questing. It got me confused. The day i found your guide, I picked up my warrior that was level 31 and started following the guide. I dinged 38 the same day before i went to bed.

    Ever since, I have been using your guide to level approximately 10 characters to level 40+, 1 to 70, 2 to 60 (back then). Every time with astonishing results, having people whisper me about how I level so fast. I recommended your guide. But I never thought about the fact that you had actually made this guide, it was just there. It hit me today as i started doing the quests in blasted lands on my druid.

    Thank you man, this is what fan-gaming is all about. Can’t wait to see the revamp (my druid got half a level from turning in the uldaman quests on level 40!).

    U rockI love your guide, great work, I recomend it to all my guildies.

    I have a very VERY tiny suggestion though, and it is very specific…towards the beginning of the 41-50 guide, we are told to go to darkshire, then to the Swamp of Sorrows. There is a quest offered by one of the guys in Darkshire that takes you to Nethergarde Keep (It is called Supplies for Nethergarde) which we have to go to anyway at some point after SoS anyways, so why not pick it up? =) Just a tiny suggestion

    Looking forward to your 20-30 guide=)

    RevampJame, let me start by saying that I loved your guide. I used it for all my characters, 2 of which are now both 70. The others, sadly were deleted when I got bored of them, only to recreate another of that same class once I actually started to understand the game mechanics.

    I recently got my Paladin to 32, and am waiting for the revamp of the alliance versions. I have been using the horde revamp for my BE hunter (now 25). Any idea when we might start to see the revamped guides going up for Ally?

    Excellent guide, wouldn’t use anything elseFirst off, after leveling up 2 characters to 70 with 2 to 2 and a half months of playtime each, I got extremely tired of leveling and decided to search for a guide. After I saw ths one, I looked no further.

    I started a new character which is now my first 70 paladin, completed in only 2 weeks and 4 days of playtime.

    Keep up the great work and hopefully you’ll create one for Wrath of the Lich King 🙂

    awesomethis is an awesome guide… only had to make one change. Instead of grinding at expedition armory in the 60-65 guide, i preferred grinding at legion front, the wrathguards there. They give a tad lower exp (i think 50 or so a mob) but they are MUCH easier to kill (averaged about 8-15 seconds on each mob) more mobs in a single area but still easy to single pull. Plus you dont have to deal with knights charge and the casters bolts..

    just a suggestion

    keep up the amazing work

    2- i was using the old leveling guide from 40 to 40, if i use the new guide from 41 to 50 it will have the sames quests as the old lvling guide or i will miss some quests becouse i was using the old leveling guide?

    2 Small suggestionsGreat guides, love them, impressive you did all that work for no pay! Thanks so much.

    Cloth!!! As leveling my shaman i noticed i could get a few thousand exp when i passed through a main city by handing in 60 cloth. It might be worth adding this to the guides at the top, as a small suggestion. You could always buy the cloth from the Auction House, gold for exp.

    Maps!!! Is there any chance you could have a 2 column format on your guides? Some of the longer routes can be difficult to see because there are 12 or more points, and the map is way off up the page, nowhere to be found.

    • img
      Mar 21, 2008 @ 17:24

      Thanks for yourThanks for your suggestions.

      The cloth donation quests already have been added in the horde guide, and will also be added to the alliance guide when we revamp it.

      About the map thing, we’ve already found a temporary fix: we simply stopped making huge maps with 20 steps. We generally split circuits in 2 maps or more, so that there isn’t ever a need to scroll back up a lot.

    Curious if you’re taking into account the new quest hub in 2.3.x (forgot which exactly), that goblin town in Dustwallow? Wondering if I should go there myself with my 40 shaman or wait till chapter 2 where you’ll have it covered. I just want to experience the content as I haven’t seen it yet.

    Hi JameThank you a trillion times for this guide, I’ve used it over and over and this time it’s with a Draenei Shaman 🙂 So I’d like to offer the tactic I use to get the Sealed Folder for the Forsaken Courier.

    Basically, you want to keep the bodyguards away from you while you pund on the Courier, this is how I do it:

    [b]Get about 40yds from then and let them patrol to you, during that you you put out a stoneclaw totem and a magma totem. Before they get to the totems you pull the courier with a Lightning Bolt to ensure the totems won’t pull her. This will separate her from the bodyguards, once you’ve got her you put an Earth bind totem down to slown down the incoming body guards. After that you just nuke down the Courier who should be down to about 30% by now (I never got a Windfury proc, so it’s alot faster if you do). Loot the folder, set down a new Earthbind Totem, cast Ghost Wolf and run away. 🙂 Obviously this was done as an Enhancement Shaman level 35 but I don’t see a faster spec to level with.[/b]

    Also, is there an estimate on the 40-50 guide?

      Another MethodAWSOME guide. Use it all the time. I have found another way to kill off the courier, and ALL of the body guards. Guessing that if you’re looking at this you’re a draenei shaman (hopefully enhancement), so here’s how it goes. Drop your stoneskin totem when you’re just in range for lightning bolt, lightning the courier (which aggs everything). Activate your Draenei healing ability, drop healing stream and magma totems, flameshock the courier. Kill that npc off first, loot incase you die, flameshock whenever you’re focused. Keep dropping magma totems, hope for crits, and you should be able to kill everything off without too much trouble thanks to your healing ability and healing stream (and shamans rock). Use a healing potion/mana potion if you have to, though I had a few windfurry procs so didn’t have to. By the time you start killing the guards they should be at least half dead, so no biggy!

    DruidI’ve yet to use your guide but it looks very nice, however I have a question. I plan on rolling a druid alt soon and I will be following your guide with that and you said to always spec for the most damage. As a Druid would speccing for the most damage be as a Balance druid for the spell DPS, as a Feral druid in cat form for melee DPS, or would they be close enough that whichever I want to play would be fine?

    Thanks a ton.

      Leveling a druidHi,

      I’ve leveled my druid with balance speck from 1-50+ and respecked to feral after that. I can honestly say that feral is much, much easier to lvl with, as you virtually get no down time at all. Being balance is enjoyable and totally different but you will constantly be running out of mana and risk dying if that happens while you still have mobs on you. If you are interested in leveling speed then feral is definitely the way to go. I recommend you try balance until lvl 20, which is when you get cat form. That way you will have gotten a bit of a feel to what balance is about. I’d also recommend that you keep 2 or more gear sets, (feral DPS, feral tanking, balance, healing) and try respecking a couple of times as you lvl. If you for example play moonkin at lvls 40-45 and a couple of lvls between 60 and 70 then you should be able to get a proper idea of how it is to lvl and instance with a moonkin.

    Just Wondering.Hey James, first of all great guide, got my first character to 70 by following this guide.
    What I wanted to ask though was I have a 40 Allaince shaman and was following the new 30-40 guide and now can only use the old 41-50 guide. Should I just wait for the new 40-50 guide or try to adapt the new guide with the old one? Also, when about is the new 40-50 guide coming out for Alliance.

    • img
      Avr 15, 2008 @ 18:23

      It’s up to you. If youIt’s up to you. If you really can’t wait, try to follow my old guide. If not, yes of course it’s better to wait for the revamp :p

      I’m hoping the 40-50 chapter will be out by the end of April.

    Small CorrectionAfter you kill tethyr in part 1, you state you should talk to sergeant hamelyn when it is really Amelyn. Very small correction, just thought i might add it incase people were confused when they look him up in thottbot or w/e.

    YOUR GUIDE RULES!Hey, just need to say thank you so much for this awesome guide, I don’t think I would ever have the patience to finally get to 70 without this, it made the whole thing a lot easier and quicker, not to mention more fun.

    Great work mate, and keep it up for the sake of all players who find levelling very long and sometimes boring!

    Why these guides are so goodI see a good lot of praise for these guides, both here in the comments and on other sites/forums. I just wanted to give my take on why I think they’re such good guides.

    First: They’re easy to understand. There’s very little discrepancy about where you should go, or what you need to do in a certain situation (and, as people experience problems they say so, which leads us to…)

    Second: They’re updated. This game changes – a lot; and those changes can easily break things in the game. Also, the author recognizes that he (i think he? apologies otherwise!!) is quite human, and that not everyone thinks exactly the same. So instead of getting all defensive, it’s “thanks – fixed!”

    Last, but not least: They’re modularized. These guides can be used by anyone, whether you’re on your first character or you have eight 70’s. This means much different playing styles (people throw in dungeons, or questing with friends, or they don’t get on much so lots of rested xp.) Personally, I’m leveling a number of toons at the moment, so I’m winding up with a lot of rested. So, after following boston’s guide thru 30 (i finished it at 32 or 33 or so on one guy, due to rested xp) and toss in some runthroughs sm for some gear I got, I’m on step 32 or so, but my toon is more than halfway into 37. So if I decide to skip a zone, or a few steps, it’s very easy to do this and not get confused about where I’m supposed to go.

    So please, as you continue to improve these guides, make sure you keep these attributes, both with updates to existing ones, and new ones (you know you’ll be burning to make one when WotLK comes out!!)

    Thanks again for these amazing guides,

    Thanks a ton!Jame, Thanks for the spectacular guides. I can’t even begin to wonder how many people I’ve recommended it to, and how many characters I’ve used this guide for!

    The first time I used it, I got a rogue from 1-60 (Pre BC, almost a year and a half ago) in 10.5 days /played time!

    I literally swear by this guide, and am more pleased than ever to see that you’re still at hard work making it better, and making new guides! (I’ve been deployed for the last 14 months)

    Keep up the great work, and I’ll keep throwing your name out there to my fellow WoW-ers in leveling despair!

    • img
      Mai 14, 2008 @ 16:59

      It should be much fasterIt should be much faster than my Outland guides. I’ve set myself a personal goal to write the guide as I level my main character (the one I raid and arena with) in WotLK. This will of course slow me down a lot with my leveling, and my guildmates will probably whine at me for that, but it won’t stop me 😛

    Small additionHey mate

    great job on the guide, I’ve been using it recently to level my warlock and for once, I’m not bored of out my skull with leveling cause I know where to go and what to do :).
    I’m at Theramore in the 30-40 part now, and I’ve thought of a small addition you could do there. First Aid is generally a great profession to have for all classes, even healers can use it (for leveling, or silence parts in the end game). I’ve got my FA to 225 and arriving in Theramore, did the Triage quest. It’s an easy 5550 xp at level 38, so you may want to bring people’s attention to try and do that quest when they’re there 🙂
    Thanks again for a great guide

    GuideHey Jame’s I love your guide and I’m currently using it to level 2 alts and just have one little suggestion to help make things easier for people.

    I sometimes exept quest by accident that you dident tell us to get and I would love it if you could at the end of every level put the quest you should have in your log before continueing onto the next level. Just a little change but I think it woud help out alot. 😛

      Mai 26, 2008 @ 15:39

      I think it boils down toI think it boils down to personal preference. All 3 specs are viable for leveling. I personally like to go with affliction up to level 60, then respec demonology.

      Something like that:

        Juin 7, 2008 @ 4:06

        Not destro.Afflic is the best from 1-56, by far. Next to no downtime at all. At 56, when Felguard finally learns all it’s abilities, it becomes just as competitive. Destro is never very efficient. You can kill fast by spamming shadowbolts, but this eats mana, leading to alot of downtime. All 3 work, but only two are efficient.

    I was just wandering, do you think it would be better for me to level to 70 without this guide first so I get more of the storyline? Or should I play through the game using this guide, so I get to 70 faster?

      Juin 10, 2008 @ 17:37

      If you haven’t, start at the first Ungoro circuit in the level 51 section. If you have, then yes, just start at the beginning of a circuit close to level 54.

    DilemaDear James, im really in a dilema. Im a level 32 hunter that’s really fortunate to come by your spectacular guide. However i seem to be unable to follow your guide properly sicne some quests recommended seems to have prerequisites that are mentioned in the earlier guide which i did not follow. What should i do? =(

    • img
      Juin 10, 2008 @ 17:46

      Do not worry about it, justDo not worry about it, just skip the first Ashenvale circuit. Start at the point where the guide makes you travel to the Thousand Needles. If there’s any quests you can’t access because you lack prerequisited, just ignore them, you are already ahead of the guide in levels, so it’s not a problem if you skip a quest here and there.

    Paladin LevelingWhile following your guide, what spec should a paladin go for leveling? I’ve heard that both Ret and Prot are good leveling specs, but I’m not sure which on to choose right now. Any suggestions?

    • img
      Juin 18, 2008 @ 16:59

      I personally favorI personally favor retribution now. The tree got so much love in the past months it’s definitely great for leveling now.

      Prot is also very solid though. It’s up to personal preference I guess, I’m no paladin expert anyway, but I just know I leveled my paladin as ret and enjoyed it a lot.

      • img
        Juin 18, 2008 @ 19:50

        ProtWell, I ended up going prot for leveling after some friends convinced me, and it seems to be holding up better than I though it would have. In the Shimmering Flats circuit, I managed to take on about 3-5 mobs at a time, which greatly helped finishing all of the quests.

        I might try out ret to see how it fairs as well, but I’m guessing that it all comes down to the circumstances. When fighting a group of mobs all close together, prot is better, but if just fighting single mobs, ret would pull ahead in dps.

    should I skip ahead?Hi Jame

    Let me start off by saying that this guide is insanely fast. Thank you so much for devoting such a large amount of time to it.

    But the main issue at hand is, I’m a little ahead of the guide. I just hit 40 and I’m still doing quests for the 38-39 range, do you think I should skip ahead? I’m noticing many of these quests are green, and if this will affect my xp gain later on if I continue from where I am now?

      Juin 26, 2008 @ 17:47

    A way to use the guide 😀 Hey Jame!
    I love your guides, but i always hated that in order to keep up with it you have to kill everything along the way. I like it much better to go to an instance or two so you level up once and then your set for 2-5 levels without haveing to kill everything 😀

    Thanks for the guides Jame!

    • img
      Juin 26, 2008 @ 18:45

      To be honest with you, theTo be honest with you, the first class I ever played was warrior. It’s one of the harder classes to level, it’s true, mostly because it is very gear dependant. If you get decent armor and most importantly a good weapon, you should be fine. But even without that, warriors can follow this guide just fine.

      I personally like to find a big 2-Hander (preferably an axe, because I like to crit a lot! :p) and go for Mortal Strike as soon as possible, then go for the fury tree up until flurry 5/5. You should end up with a talent build kinda like this one:

    outrunning guidewell ive been using this guide for nearly 5 lvls and i have been leveling to fast for it. i dont do anything you dont do but because most of your quests are slaying or collecting my drop rates make me kill more and ym rest exp makes me lvl faster then the guide. i am currently lvl 35 and 3/5 of the way to 36 and im still at the end of 34 before even handing in like 8 completed quests. what should i do? im worried to skipp to the lvl 35 or 36 section cause then ill miss on some pre quests.

Now to my question; the revamp for the alliance 50-60 have it been much delayed or just a couple of days since my hunter is standing and just waiting for the next part so I can see what new fun quests that have been added 😀

    I use your guide a lot,I use your guide a lot, levelled 3 chars to 70 with it, but what I find slows me down is having to alt-tab to check where to go to next, are there any plans for a download add-on which shows waypoints for the guide?

    compared to boostingIf you compare following your xp guide, to say getting boost in SM to 40. (pala way), how you think it is then? My leech is atm lvl 29 and wondering if I should follow the guide or boost myself to atleast around 36 or so.

    QuestsHey Jame,
    I love your guides , but im useing your old guide on 50-60 and I am about 3 levels ahead of where I am suppose to be :D. I was wondering if I move onto the 60-65 guide without finishing the 50-60 guide completely will I miss out on some quest chains?

    Thanks for reading 😀

      Nope you won’t miss anyNope you won’t miss any chains. None of the old world quests connect to Outland.

      Just jump in the guide atJust jump in the guide at the beginning of a circuit close to your current level. Try to do the first Un’goro circuits and grab the linken quest line. Besides that, ignore the other quests you can’t get. After a while, you’ll be back on track, and those quests won’t matter anymore.

    where to starthey i have a 66 druid and i just went into Nagrand and picked up all the quests there, i’ve done the ones in hellfire, and tek forest, so i’ve moved on to Nagrand, what should i do to follow your guide? thanks man, i started a hunter with this yesterday and already im at 18 thanks man 🙂

    • img
      Juil 8, 2008 @ 18:32

      Just follow the firstJust follow the first circuit in Nagrand (starts somewhere in the last chapter). If for some reason you can’t access a few quests because you don’t have the pre-reqs (there shouldn’t be many), just ignore it and keep following the guide. You’ll catch up eventually and those missing quests won’t matter at all.

    erally wanna use guide but…Heya Jame,
    im a level 39 horde warlock and i wanna use your guide,i was thinking about starting it at 40 since thats prety close right now,however i have a tendancy to complete q’s way above my level,can i still start using your guide effectively?
    i have thought about going back in your guide so that the amount of q’s i have done in 40-50 are few,however i dont know which part to start and i worrie ill be behind by alot.

    please help me out,i love your guide and cant wait to try it again after the massive update ^^

    Awesomeheya Jame would like to drop in to say that this guide is well written and helped my fury warrior level to 60 in 4 days 12 hrs /played (dinged about 10 minutes ago ^^)!

    Anyway, i have a small problem.. I started your guide at level 32 (although began from the level 30 section) and it never really caught up with me.. i dinged 60 off of the quest that ‘should make you hit level 58′! Should I skip right to the start of the 60-65 section? or is it still more viable to stay in azeroth ’till the end and be 1 or 2 levels ahead all through the outlands guides too?

    thanks again for the awesome guide

    • img
      Juil 16, 2008 @ 17:06

      Imo it’s more viable toImo it’s more viable to finish the old world quests, at least up to the plaguelands circuits are done. Going to Outland being nearly 61 makes it much easier.

    SM in the 30 – 40 guidefirst of all james great guide. finished it twice doing it on the 3rd time now as a hunter. i noticed you revamped your guide a fair bit and it is fantastic great lvling got from 34-40 in one night XD. i notice you said that instances are no longer forced and all that jazz. i see the you mention uldaman and ZF but not SM yet you make us pick up a quest for there so when do recommend us to finish off the sm quests?.

    other than that great guide. i was thinking slot the recommendation for sm when you finish 30 – 40 alliance chapter. just thought i would let you know that is all.

    Confused.Hey. Ive used your 30-40 leveling guide and i had just started chapter two when i stopped playing wow for about a month or two. When i returned i wanted to continue using your guides, so i wanted to pick up where i left off. But when i got on the guide had completely changed :S. I eventually got on track again, but when i got to level 41 part of the guide, i noticed that it goes to badlands, and im sure i have already did that in the guide before, and i looked ahead in the guide and i saw you also go back to stranglethorn vale and all the quests you talk about in badlands and stranglethorn vale i have done in your last guide :(. i know this is because the guide has changed but could you please tell me where i could start because the guide was really good and i wanna use it 🙂

    Winterspring New Guide 50-60Hi James,

    First of all, you rock! I would not love this game as much as I do if it wasn’t for you. I do have a question though… At lvl 56 in Starfall Village in Winterspring, you receive the quest.. Trouble Spirits of Kel’Theril. You collect all 4 of the Relic Fragments, then in your guide just below lvl 57 – you say to put them in the bank (all 4) that we won’t need them for a while. I can’t find in the rest of your guide when we are suppose to get them from the bank, and where to turn them in? Please help.. Again, thank you for all your hard work!! Your guide is the BEST!!

    • img
      Juil 20, 2008 @ 0:11

      Ah, that’s because I haven’tAh, that’s because I haven’t been able to finish the revamped guide. It’s supposed to be in those optional circuits I will add soon.

      In the meantime, you can follow the old version of my guide, the plaguelands circuits are still 90% accurate, including the turn in of that quest (in the northern part of eastern plaguelands).

      Juil 21, 2008 @ 19:05

      Yes it’s possible, you willYes it’s possible, you will fall behind the guidd in levels a little if you play without rested bonus, but that can be easily fixed by running a few instances, which I definitely recommend if you play with two other people already, that’s almost a full group 😛

    Hey thereHey I just signed up here on the advice of a friend who I has always been able to level his toons with unbelievable speed (or at least I thought so). Last night while I was talking to him on our guild’s vent he pst me with just the phrase “Jame’s Guide” then told me that if I googled it I would find how he does it. So while I haven’t used the guide myself, apparently the credit for his success goes to you! So keep up the good work, & I am looking forward to more efficient playing experience myself, thanks!

    Jame’s Levelling Guides FTW!Hey I love your levelling guides. And really appreciate the work that you put into them. A few levels after 30 I started your guide, and not that the game wasn’t enjoyable before, it just gave things a whole lot of direction, especially for a first time WoWer. I’m now level 61 thanks to your guides! One question. How did you come up with them? Have you done every single quest and then you just wrote down and prioritized which ones were worth doing based on XP results, time taken etc? Thanks again!

    • img
      Juil 29, 2008 @ 15:20

      I’ve leveled severalI’ve leveled several characters before I wrote the guides. I always took notes when I noticed that I could have done quests in a more efficient order.

      And then one day I just started to write the guide while leveling an alt. Thottbot and wowhead were of course helpful to make sure I didn’t miss any quests. There’s no better way to write a guide than actually leveling a character while going through each step. Well, at least that’s what I think and it’s how I do it 😉

    Where should i startHey Jame, first i wanna Congradulate you on your guide. Second, i just recently found out about your guide. so im lvl 49 now and I started from your 40-50 leveling guide i think im around the lvl 44-45 range and i kinda wanna move on to the 50-60 guide but idk if i should because of the prerequisite quests that u get from the 40-50 guide and i think i might need them. Thought i’d ask you, cause who knows ur guide better than you. thnx.

    Thank You Jame!Hey Jame I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for putting together this wonderful guide! It’s amazing!
    I am a hardcore horde player and I’ve always wanted to level up an alliance character. However I was never good at leveling on Alliance (partly because I didn’t know where to go to quest) but this guide is helping me along fantastically! I’m following it step by step and I’m doing great! People are even whispering me asking me how I leveled so fast. For example, I was level 28 in a group for RFK with a 32 Hunter. Now I am level 35 and he is still level 33.

    Thank You Jame. My Moonkin will be level 70 in no time 🙂

    Lvl 58…Hey Jame. Love Your Guide I Have Followed It Since 38 and I am Now 58. At 55 I Stopped Following On Advice Of My Mate And Then I Hit 57 In A Couple Of Hours (Not Patronizing You, Just I Picked Up Some High Exp Quests In Felwood). I Struggled to 58 and Now I Am In Outland. I Was Wondering, While I Am Going Against Your Guide By Going At 58 Would It Hurt To Follow Your 60-65 Guide At 58?

      Yes, it might hurt

      I’veYes, it might hurt 😛

      I’ve explained in lenghts why it’s bad to go to Outland at 58, so I won’t do it again here. But just know that you probably have troubles, unless:

      – You do a lot of instances to catch up in levels
      – You grind
      – You have a lot of rested bonus

        Sep 23, 2008 @ 12:02

        Outlands at 58Could you please provide me with a link to where you explain why it’s bad to go to Outland at 58? 🙂

        I ventured into Outland at 58 with my hunter, and was able to do quests non-stop in Hellfire Peninsula until I hit 62.

          It is towards the end of theIt is towards the end of the 3rd chapter (50-60). In short, there are some circuits in the old world which provide as much xp/hour as in Outland, sometimes even more. Anyway, I’ll just quote it for you:

          [quote]So you are level 58 now. Many people ask if they should just go to Outland at level 58 and never go back to the old world. This is in my experience a mistake. As we’ve seen in this chapter, we’re already getting 10K+ Exp for certain quests already in Felwood and Winterspring. The Plaguelands circuits are just as good, it would be a shame to miss that. Not to mention, if you go to Outland at level 58, you won’t have access to all quests, there are some quests with a level 61+ requirement already in Hellfire Penninsula. So yes, that’s really not the most efficient way.
          However what I recommend is:[/b]

          Go to Outland and do the first few quests to get some nice gear upgrades, unlock your tradeskills past 300 and get the flight path to Shattrath. Open up my [url=]60-65 alliance guide[/url], follow the guide until step 7. when you arrive at the Temple of Telhamat, get the flight path (buy the first aid book if you wish), then ride to Shattrath (infos on how to do that are somewhere in the guide, use the search function to find it). Get the flight path in Shattrath, then take a portal back to Ironforge and get back to the guide 50-60 guide.[/quote]

    Money guides.Hey James,

    First of all want to say thanks for the great guide, just got my second character to 70 following it. I was just wondering if there will be any guides for the rest of Netherstorm and for Shadowmoon Valley to help us get some gold for our epic flying mounts.

    Août 23, 2008 @ 16:56

    Great guideHey Jame,
    Just thought I’d say thanks for everything. Ive been using this guide since back in the day when leveling was actually difficult 😛 .

    And I also saw someone else ask about which proffessions would be good to compliment the guide, and I think its worth mentioning.
    Personally I would always choose 2 gathering proffessions, (Herb/Skin, Mine/Skin) because you’ll level so fast with the guide that you’ll need to make up money somehow to be able to afford your epic mount at 60.

    Thanks again Jame

    This guide is just awesome for people like me: I love to play WoW, but im just so slow at leveling sometimes, but with this guide im gaining levels fast, and having a lot of fun at the same time. I’ve leveled my main character to lvl 70 from lvl 34 with the old for of this guide, and now im working on with a priest through the new one. I’m so happy that you, Jame, have made this guide for everyone to read, for free! I really appreciate the work you have done making this guide. You are helping a lot of people with this, and we all – or at least what kind of comments ive seen – love it! I dont have the nerves to make something like this, thats for sure, and im happy that you had.

    No point in saying thanks, seeing as you already get the point and so many people already have, but still – thanks!
    Also, I noticed that you DO level very quickly, because i started the guide and level thirty then stopped for a bit. I finally reached level forty-five, and I’ve found it so much easier to level, than when I had stopped the guide, and now I’m even ahead of the guide. Thank you!

    :)Well your guides still the best I can find after trying a lot of them with my friend. Just got through last chapter with my third char and then realised: Why did I level this? And noted it was just because I wanted a hunter, because hunters don’t get killed by every class it meets. So now i’m dying to get my hands on your Northrend guides. Just one question (don’t have to anwser this if you dont want by any reason) Do I get to Kill Hemet Nesingvary? So incredibly sick of his go kill 30 of these and 30 of those and then come back here. }:)

    Guess the fastest leveling will be a month or two when the stream of players start to thin out. 😛 But noway i’m waiting want to be serverfirst to 80 so shut my self into my room for a week.

    You’re the leveling GOD man!!!!!!!

Because to be honest i don’t mind grinding I just want to lvl it as fast as possible, without having to go and buy lvling guides, so would like some advice and possibly replies form people who have grinded to 60 or possibly 70 (im not planning to grind 60-70)Thanks in Advance..

            Grinding is faster thanGrinding is faster than questing IF you’re totally clueless about questing. If you follow my guide, I guarantee you you’ll level faster than with grinding, but I also guarantee you that you’ll get a lot more gold, rep, items and more importantly, you won’t be bored out of your mind!

            It’s quite simple, my guide makes you do quests in such an optimized order that you don’t have to run around much, and in the end you’re almost always killing stuff as if you were grinding, besides you’re also completing a bunch of quests while doing it!

            No need to buy leveling guides, my guide is better than those other guides you have to pay for, it has been tested and proved many many times by hundreds of players over the past 3 years 😛

            If yes, the answer is: it depends. Some addons add a lot of data transfer (DPS meters for example). On the other hand, cartographer and fubar don’t add much, it’s insignificant.

    Hey jame, love your guides.Hey jame, love your guides. I have a little tip though they may/ may not help. I started using your guide at level 40 for my palladin, so obviously I had to get the chain quests from the beginning, which I am not complaining about, but it took forever to find. Maybe you could, at the beginning of your guides, list what quests are chained and where to start them, it would save some people a lot of time. Again, love your guides.

        50-60In the comment section of the 50-60 guide I wrote the pre quests to the starting quests in that chapter because i was bored and Blizzard is stupid for doing a 12 hour maintence on a national U.S. holiday.

    1 Comment tho 😛 :

    After you dinged 47 you tell warlocks to go ti IF by go auberdine-menthil-IF. In the new patch you can actually take the boat from auberdine straight to stormwind harbour! And i think that benefits most if not all classes that cannot train in darnassus.

    Hmmm..Hey James,
    I was just wondering, is there going to be a guide(s) up to level 80? i only see 70-75.
    If you are, that will be awesome. 😀

    • img
      Nov 3, 2008 @ 10:00

      Yes of course there will be,Yes of course there will be, it’s just that I haven’t finished those guides yet, so not sure about the release date.

      My aim is to have all leveling guides finished up to level 80, before the end of the month of november, but that will be difficult :p

      Hi there.I just found out about your guides and this site. And its looking great so far 🙂 . Anyhow I was just wondering is there any form of subscription or anything alike that I need to be aware of, or are these proper guides actually free?! cause that’d be awsome.

      Just about to enter Mana Tombs as im writing this so I think thats about it for now 😀

      I’ll stick around.

    fantastic guideJame,

    First, let me congratulate you on yet another incredible guide. I have 2 lvl 70’s and I used your guide in both cases and I recommended your guide to my guide as a reference to level other toons they may have. It is amazingly well organized and entertaining. I think your objective of creating a guide that is easy to use and doesn’t miss lore / areas / content and is soloable was nailed.

    Ok that was the gushing praise part…now the problem. I am leveling very quickly – perhaps too quickly. I am currently lvl 41 but i have only made it too the level 36-37 area of the guide. Can I ask for one favor?

    Can you create a list of the quests you should have as you start a new chapter? In my case, it would be those that you should have as you enter chapter 2 (40-50). I think I need to skip all the remaining quests from 37 – 40 and start at Chapter 2.

    Given the efficiency of your guide, this might be a good thing to add to all new chapters. Not to say your guide isn’t perfect. 🙂

      Nov 7, 2008 @ 21:00

    how long should this take for the average person?

    in your guide
    6. Ride southeast to Death’s Stand (82,47). Turn in [72] The Son of Karkut, get [72] Surrounded!
    is 2 and 3 reversed on the map ?

      Nov 7, 2008 @ 20:59

      Hmm, no, not reversed

      TheHmm, no, not reversed 🙂

      The average person should make a level every 4 or 5 hours from 70 to 80 while following my guides.

    Alliance PVP serverI’m writing this comment in consideration of others who haven’t read the guides before.
    When you start off as an alliance at lvl 30, you should be prepared to get ganked alot until, lets say lvl 34-35. If you play on a pvp server where the opposite faction actually is alot higher, try start the guide of at lvl 34-35 and start after the Stranglethorn Vale circuit. If you don’t you will probably end up doing some runs in Scarlet Monastery anyway. If you play on a well balanced pvp server or a pvp server where you’re faction is overpowering the other, don’t mind this comment. This goes for all none pvp servers aswell.

    Sorry if you get offended by this comment Jame, but it’s nothing against the guide itself, just a little help from a player who dealt with this himself.

        Nov 28, 2008 @ 16:57

        My levelling on PvP server strategy…Simply, I don’t do it. It is just too frustrating dealing with the ganking. If I’m leveling a character, I’ll level him on a PvE server and then transfer the toon to the desired PvP server once I’ve reached the target level. For my twinks, I don’t do the transfer until I’ve geared them as well.

        Of course, the cost of the transfer is not really important to me, and not dealing with the frustration of gankers is worth every cent (to me).

        Which reminds me, I need to donate to Jame’s…

    You are AwesomeI had started several alts (4 to 5) and could never get them above level 40. Thanks to this guide I probably cut several months of my time to experience the end game.

    You rock Jame!You’re a legend man. I’ve used all your guides. I’ve even purchased a “levelling guide” at one point that didn’t even compare to yours. Do you accept PayPal donations?

    Oh, I was reading comments from other users as well – great to see all the compliments, you deserve ’em! I was a little amused by some of the requests some had for changes to your guides. It appears most of them would not benefit the “other 97%” of users so may not be worth your time. I think the guides are “just right” for their intended audience.

    Looking forward to trying out the new 70+ guides in Northrend! They do seem more…brief. Lots of “get quest, turn in quest”. Did you find the quests more straightforward in Northrend so you didn’t need as much detail in the guide? Just curious. As far as I’m concerned, the less verbose, the better! 😛

    Keep up the great work!

    Quarry QuestsIn the coldrock quarry section of the guide, you say that the elder has all of the quests. I didn’t go to NR in the beta, but it might have changed because reclaiming the quarry, and hampering their escape are both given from Etaruk at 54,36. Thought I’d point it out 🙂

    Awesome guide. I did find anAwesome guide. I did find an issue with Howling Fjord, at Steal Gate.
    Quest: I have an airplane.
    This quest now places you pvp flagged. Horde also now camp this quest. You also, at least currently on Zangarmarsh, cannot loot the baggies. I’ve had multiple friends test it and none of the bags work.

    Otherwise, thanks for the awesome guide!

      Nov 19, 2008 @ 14:45

      Quest?I couldn’t find I have an airplane, but if you mean “I’ve got a Flying Machine!” ( – that’s bugged. Maybe blizz will fix it at the maintence, but for now, that quest is bugged 🙁 (Confirmed by GM i asked)

    • img
      Nov 21, 2008 @ 2:21

      There is no Quest named “I have an Airplane”But maybe you was talking about “I’ve got an Flying Machine”.

      And Yes, It has been confirmed that the quest is not Working as intended. According to Some WoWhead users its when you look around with your mouse it bugs out, It works if you use your Arrowkeys to steer and Spacebar to fly upwards and X to fly downwards.

      Some of the bags are bugged, too. But there is one bag that you can get. It’s along the wall on the south side of the site. You should be able to pick it up.

      But some people can complete this quest, There is a Topic about it in the Beta forum, You can look at it [url=;jsessionid=52C9DCBD66BDA72669D8F5C5C94B9576.app05_07?topicId=8401790102&sid=2000]here[/url]

      Also, when you finish this quest, it will be come a daily quest, that you can repeat every day.

      [Color=green][b]Fun fact[/b][/color]
      This quest is a reference to an old game by blizzard, Warcraft 2. It was so that when you finished building a Gnomish Flying Machine, You’d here a gnome shouting “I’ve got a Flying Machine”. If you played Warcraft 2 you’d remember it 🙂

      I hope this could help you abit.

    As advertisedI’ve been using this leveling guide for my current character, and am very pleased with the results. If anything, I’m finding that I level well before completing a circuit given for the level even if I am following the guide to the letter. I’d say this is a strong selling point for the guide.

    Many thanks.

    I’ve never really felt theI’ve never really felt the need to post something. Everyone who has commented before me has pretty much said it to a point where it goes without saying. Your guides are awesome and the fact you release them for free has surely made you popular with a large portion of the wow community. I know i recommend your guides to anyone who asks. Although i haven’t done it sometimes I just feel like having a macro steadily spamming the general channel with the URL for your guides. Seriously the amount of people who spam general with “OMG where is ‘insert quest mob\'” is rediculous. But anyway i felt like i needed to sign up and thankyou personally for all the hard work you’ve put in. I hit server first dwarf and missed server first paladin by an hour 90% because the other paladin didn’t sleep in days :P…but i was able to hit server first dwarf solely because of this guide so to reiterate. Thankyou for your guide and I can’t wait for the rest of it to come out. I felt lost without it after 76!

    Absolutely fabulous guide! This renewed my interest in WoW again.

    I have a Mage just level 36. Where should I start with your new guide? I will not have all the described quests already.

    Oh and off-topic: can you advise me a talent tree for a frost mage?

      Just jump in the guide atJust jump in the guide at the beginning of a circuit close to your current level, and ignore the quests you can’t get. It might be a little slower at the start, but after a while, you’ll be back on track, and those quests won’t matter anymore.

    Thanks a bunchI’ve been using your guides for over a year now and just wanted to let you know how helpful they’ve been! I was dreading leveling my DK through Outlands, but with the guides I blew through BC in less than a week and am now 76 with the majority of Northrend to work through (I took your advice to stay in Outlands as long as possible, I even went back and did half of 75 in Netherstorm) and I’ll be 80 in no time.
    Whenever someone asks where something is, I just tell them to google your guide. People have actually thought I am trying to sell them something or scam them because of how good I say it is.. Whatever 😛

    I’m a little anxious to see the rest of the WotLK guide though. I leveled from 76-77 in Grizzly Hills on my own and the questing felt messy and scattered. Pretty sure I missed a bunch of quests too.

    Could you release them as you go? Maybe if you have the next zone all written out, you could put that up while you continue to work on the rest. 😛

    Great work!

    Little tipAt level 68 its worth heading into Borean Tundra for 5 minutes to do the quest “The Siege” (Alliance side, not sure Horde’s version) for spending 5 minutes I was able to get a really nice weapon upgrade for my deathknight, making the last 2 levels in BC that much easier.

    hi jame!i absolutely love your guides but i have one small question. ive just turned lvl 70 on my gnome warlock midway through nagrand due to instances boosting my xp alot but i dont know whether to drop outlands and go straight to northrend or stay in outland and clean up

    i know you probably get these types of questions 100 times a day but i just thought i’d ask your honest opinion!


    • img
      Déc 18, 2008 @ 16:31

      I would suggest continuingI would suggest continuing with the Outland guide. At least until you hit 71-72. Being ahead of the curve in Northrend is great since quests are just more efficient and easier to do. Plus, as an added bonus for people on pvp servers, being ahead on levels usually means you are slightly ahead of people you are questing around. That rogue might be slightly less likely to attack you if you are 2-3 levels above him than if you were equal.

      Plus, once you hit 80 you’ll have a lot more quests to do for gold. I’ve only made about 2k gold going from 70-77 so I know I’ll need to do a lot more quests once I’m 80 so I can buy my flying epic mount.

    Alliance 70-80Hey Jame, started using your leveling guide just a couple of days ago and am up to 73 now after just the 70-72 part of your guide (granted I visited some instances etc.) I just bought the expansion recently and well, I should be 77-78 in just a matter of days but do you have any estimated time for the 77-80 part of the Alliance Guide? All the more ‘pretty’ races are in the Alliance so that should be on priority number one 😉

  • img
    Déc 21, 2008 @ 17:06

    An IdeaHello, Jame! I read your guide quite a bit, and I have a suggestion for you. Sorry if it’s already been suggested.

    At the beginning of each level in your leveling guides, do you think it would be possible to list the quests you should have, where to find them, and any other pertinent information regarding the section to come? I believe that this would be a great addition, as I have just recently started up the guide, and I’ve been trying to figure out where to start and work it out.

      You don’t HAVE to use it.You don’t HAVE to use it. It’s 100% optional. It just replaces your default blizzard action bars with better, more customizable ones.

      To configure it, you have to type /bar in-game, and then from there just try around until you become familiar with the addon. It’s really not complicated.

        Keep in mind that you can use addons such as Questhelper or Carbonite while you wait. They aren’t as good as Jame’s guides, but if you want to keep moving they are an option.

          Carbonite is an excellentCarbonite is an excellent addition to Jame’s fantastic guides, I use it myself. It’s a helpful tool for plotting out movement and quest areas.

          Just want to give Jame more praise for his amazing work, I couldn’t possibly have hit the level I have (currently 74 with literally the WORST schedule possible) without his help. Thanks again Jame!

    Thanks so much.For keeping this guide free. You could easily charge 40 dollars for this and people would buy it like they do that Brian Kopp shit but yours is so much better(I downloaded it to see what it was like, I didn’t buy it.) Just wanted to say you rock.

    Another Thankyou PostHey Jame, just like to pass on my thanks to you, for these wonderful guides, my DK is currently in Grizzly Hills doing the 9 daily quests for XP whilst waiting for the next section of the guide but i’d just like to add that i think you should get it done in your time, all these people want you to hurry up, but i’d prefer a guide of the same great quality to one thats been released prematurely,

    Just my 2c

    Actually on a not-new serverActually on a not-new server you might just as well check the AH. There you should be able to aquire a weapon of similar DPS whenever you want to, without ever travelling into borean tundra. (at least i found loads of 108 dps weapons for all 2hand types for ~20-30g each (even my bags were more expensive 😉 ).
    And it should get you through till “Last rites”, where you get your weapon of choice till lvl 75 (Zul’Drak Arena Q).

    Really superYou know what would be SOOO super amazing if at the bottom of each level guide section, ESPECIALLY the 1-21 guides, if there was just a list of all the quests completed in that section and a list of those that need to be in the log, so those of us who aren’t starting at lvl “0” can know if they’ve got everything they need to jump into the middle of a guide. Can’t wait to get started on your guides they look AMAZING! 😀 oh and i will probably end up crediting you to loss of even more of my life.

    I’ve been using them for my main which I leveled from 30-77 using your guides.
    leveling in the troll city now, lost without your guide. Your guides are of such good quality when other guides are trash and cost £20+. Thanks for helping my lost self though world of warcraft 🙂

    icecrown?first of all, let me say your guides are as necessary as auctioneer for this player, and i cant imagine playing without them.

    but if ever there was a back-and-forth-retrace your-steps-constantly type place that needed your expert efficiency skills, it would be icecrown. any chances of us seeing a guide for there? i know you didnt get into the final areas of outland much, so should we expect the same in northrend? are we doomed to 1-2 quest turn ins forever?

    HEyHey James you have a great thing going with these guieds and gratz on the new addon……i only have one problem, i recently just found your guides and before i had seen them i went to dragonblight after Borean tundra instead of howling Fjord and i did all the quests i could in dragonblight besides a couple of group quets and now i’m 73 and like a half, so i was wondering what i should do…..i’m guessing i should go to howling fjord since all your coments about this stuff is usally just go to the closest sercet to your lvl but i was just wondering how this would effect me lvling ways 😛 😀

    There is a part where youThere is a part where you tell us to get the quest “Mission to Mudsprocket” but near the end of the 31-40 guide when you tell us to go to mudsprocket you never mention dropping it off, ive checked the level 40-50 guide and upon the second visit to mudsprocket their is no mention of handing in the quest only the “Delivery to Drazzit” quest

      Fév 6, 2009 @ 12:03

      It says to turn it in, justIt says to turn it in, just not by name. It says at the very end of the guide to “turn in your quest” while in Mudsprocket, the quest in question being Mission to Mudsprocket.

        Fév 7, 2009 @ 11:48

        It says:3. Follow the pathIt says:
        3. Follow the path west then south until you reach Mudsprocket. Here take the flight path and turn in your quest and fly to Theramore. Turn in your quest at Captain Garran Vimes. Take the follow up [38] A Grim Connection.
        Go talk to Jaina and ask her to teleport you to Stormwind. Go to Stormwind Keep, find High Warlord Bolvar and turn in your quest, take the follow up [37] Return to Jaina. Train / Sell junk / Check the AH etc.

        There is no mention of turning in the quest, only the one at tabetha =/

    Where to start?Just came across your guides and want to start using. Have a 72.5 blood spec DK and have already done many of the Dragonblight quests, but none of Howling Fjord.

    Should I start in Howling Fjord and do all of the those or pick up the Dragonblight run where I’m at?

    Looking forward to catching up with guildmates at levl 80


    • img
      Mar 11, 2009 @ 20:33

      I would suggest going backI would suggest going back to Howling Fjord and following the guide there. You aren’t too high for it yet (things won’t be gray to you), and it will leave more high level quests at the end when you are 80 to give you money. It’s also a good time to do the quests for the achievement, if you care about that. Plus the quests are easier and still give very good XP.

      But the bottom line is, go where you want to 🙂

    Was wondering…Hey Jame,

    Your guides are spectacular. I’m loving the new addon guide as i no longer have to alt-tab to check the web page. Excellent work my friend. But i had a question, Do you know of anyone who has followed your guide and gotten the Loremaster and Seeker achievements? also, I was wondering if your guides complete all quests possible to your faction in each zone this wonderful guide takes us to? I’m unusually picky about how i go about questing, and i get this feeling of non-completion if i do not do every quest in the zone. Any reply is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Am I crazy…Ok I want to say it was 2? weeks ago, I decided to level my rogue from 70 to 80, and decided to try the addon version of the guide.

    It was awesome, blew me away at how fast I was chewing through it, was super impressed.

    The one thing is…unless I’m crazy/dreaming, the addon version definitely took me through zul’drak and stormpeaks… 😕
    So the other day I decided to level my shaman, download the addon and its only grizzly hills…help! If anyone has a solution, click a different link or something, please respond because I neeeeed those guides lol. Did I click a test version or…well what???

      You were using the defaultYou were using the default TourGuide guides, NOT Jame’s guides. They are a decent replacement when no Jame guide is available, but TRUST me when I say they are NOT as good as Jame’s.

      Those guides have now been hidden when the WoW-Pro addon is enabled, for exactly this reason – people were following them thinking they were Jame’s guides.

      If you would like to see the default guides, you’ll need to temporarily disable the WoW-Pro portion of the addon at the log-in screen.

      A fix is possibly in the works for this that will put the guides in sub-folders in the TourGuide menu, but for now this is the only way to view those default guides. Sorry for the inconvenience.

        Just untill its available..With all the repect to the work Jame and all you are putting into this add-on guide, I don’t really see the meaning of having to disable the old guides or Tourguide..
        I DO love Jame’s guides, but since I dont have any for Ice or Storm, why disable those?

        Maybe it could be an idea to keep those guides active while no Jame’s is available.
        just to give the players a help even if it’s not yours..

        I hate the idea to have to disable Jame’s guide..

    Jame’s Guide AddonI love the guides here, but I dont see why you would use the addon. I thought it would direct you around in an easy to use pattern with arrows and popup windows or something telling you what to do. It was just a confusing scroll of quests that I did already, was doing, or didnt even have yet. I had to sort and filter thru them and it was time consuming as well as confusing.
    I dont know, maybe I didnt click the magical “Start” button or something. Anyway, thanks for the guides…they rock.

    • img
      Mar 26, 2009 @ 8:36

      Well, there is no way forWell, there is no way for the addon to know what quests or steps you have already done when you first start using it. So you have to manually click off steps to get to the point you are at. But after that, it is really the most efficient way to level I have ever seen (yes I know I’m biased). Truly, it’s much easier than Jame’s “paper” guides, and those kicked a ton of butt to begin with. It’s a small bit of work to get your addon caught up to where you are in the guide, but I really think its worth it!

    Too Much of a Good Thing???I’m a little embarrassed to post this as a noob but besides thinking these guides are God Send I wanted to know if you can level TOO FAST? I’m 1/4 into Lvl 70 and I just now got to Blade’s Edge Mountains area (Sylvanaar). I haven’t picked up any quests here because I would like to know if I’m wasting time here. People are telling me to just go to Northrend and stop wasting time…Confused. Oh I’m a 100% DemoLock and think Metamorphosis is way too much fun!!!

    • img
      Mar 27, 2009 @ 6:29

      Hah, trust me I know theHah, trust me I know the feeling. when you are level 70 in Outland, it’s really your choice where to go. If you are interested in achievements or just like Outland, then stay and do the quests there while they still give XP, since if you want the achievements anyway you’ll have to do them sometime and this will leave more quests in Northrend to give you money later. However if you are sick to death of Outland and don’t give a hoot about achievements, then head to Northrend. It’s really at this point just up to you and what is most fun for you!

        He also closes the gapHe also closes the gap between the level you are when you finish Jame’s Northrend guides, and level 80, if he continues in Outlands. Assuming this chap has no rested and goes directly into Northrend, he will end up at level 77 or 78, and then have no guide to follow. I mean, while leveling on my DK, I had rested all the way from 70 to 80, but I dinged far into Storm Peaks, just a few steps from finishing Zygor’s (ridiculous) Leveling Guide.

        I wouldn’t call it slow,
        I wouldn’t call it slow, you probably had more rested than he did. But it is indeed possible to ding 70 in Nagrand, I did this on my druid and probably will also on my pally.

        Also, please make an effort with your spelling and grammar in the future!

    So I should skip Blade’sSo I should skip Blade’s Edge and go straight to Northrend (Borean Tundra) right? 😕 Oh and I hope you didn’t read too much into my posting, I didn’t write that to show off or claim I’m faster or whatever than others. :O I really needed advise on what to do with all the conflicting info I was getting. I figure I was not getting the proper amount of EXP because I was considered too high for that area. :jawdrop:

    I also have a DK (Jame’s build Unholy) }:) that was right in line with Jame’s DK guide then finished Outland right at 71 then on to Northrend now lvl 75. Again, my DemoLock is 70 before Blade’s Edge so I should just go to Northrend right? 😕 😕 😕

      As I stated before (IAs I stated before (I thought I was clear but I guess not!) it really depends on what is more fun for you.

      I would advise staying in Outland until the quests or gray or it asks you to kill gray mobs. This is doubly true if you like achievements, since there are achievements for doing the quests there. Staying in Outland longer will leave more quests to do in Northrend after you are 80, which is a really good thing because it means more money!

      However, if you are really bored with Outland then go to Northrend.

      I’m not sure how else I can say it, do you have a more specific question about this?

      Also, you didn’t seem like you were showing off, don’t worry 😉

      While I do think Jame’sWhile I do think Jame’s first (and main) toons are Alliance (not confirmed but I seemed to get that impression) – thats not the reason for what you are seeing.

      Jame does NOT have the Zul’Drak through Icecrown written for EITHER faction. You are seeing the default TourGuide guides, NOT Jame’s guide. Are you sure you downloaded the newest Alliance version of the guide? Remember, if the guide doesn’t say “WoWPro” and have Jame’s name in the title, it’s not his.

          Ah okay. If you don’t haveAh okay. If you don’t have the Alliance version of the WoW-Pro guide downloaded, it will only show the default Tourguide guides – and those DO go up to Icecrown.

          The answer is still the same though: Jame’s guides only go up to Grizzly Hills currently, for both factions.

    • img
      Juin 9, 2009 @ 22:22

      Not written yet. Jame hasNot written yet. Jame has decided to prioritize the addon for now, since a lot of people actually get to 80 within the guides he currently has written. He’s also been busy with RL of late and hasn’t been able to make much progress. But they will be written eventually!

      The guides for Northrend should get you almost to 80 though, if you are rested and if you do some instances. I recommend QuestHelper for the last few levels – not as good as the addon, but something!

Currently working through Jame’s guides and am 78 (56% XP Bar) and just heading into Grizzly Hills. I expect to ding 80 here, or come very close to it.

            BTW, I have yet to run an instance in Outland OR Northrend, simply because PuG’s are seemingly impossible to find on my current server.

    Razor HillHey i love your addon. i have a suggestion though. i noticed while doing the Durotar (1-12) guide that after doing A Solvent Spirit i was out of bag space and almost level 8. i would suggest changing the guide to direct you to Razor Hill before going back to Senjin Village. you can turn in the gnomish tools and Furl Scorbrows quest for an 8 slot bag. this bag would help a lot with the space being taken by the current quest items and the ones we are about to get at Echo Isles.

    Random groupsHeya Jame. Sorry if I am commenting something that’s done or whatever, but can’t be arsed to check through all guides atm. Just started to think about.. have you told people to always sign up for random dungeons? And if not, why? I can’t see where it wouldn’t be profitable. They get great exp and a blue gear part to go along with the questing (everyone don’t have a main with to many emblems ya know :P) And if you think that there are to many instances that are worthless, just say so that you don’t recommend those certain instances and that you think questing is quicker. They can always leave if the instance is to long or not profitable.
    For an example, gnomeregan is perhaps not profitable, but SM GY is certainly. There is like 20-30min diff.

    Just delete this comment if already done or commented before, I am just to lazy, but wanting to be nice and helpful 🙂

      Since random dungeons areSince random dungeons are still relatively new, and since Jame hasn’t been working on his old guides much do to lots of new developments here on WoW-Pro and also work on his new site for SC2, I don’t think this has been added. However it is an excellent suggestion. Whether or not the old guides get revised before Cata comes out, I’m almost certain this will be added to the Cata guides.

        Sep 17, 2010 @ 9:57

        I suggest you track back inI suggest you track back in the guide and start at the beginning, read through it til you find something you haven’t done and do it, skipping the parts you have done of course. That way you’ll get back on course with the guide no problem 🙂

        Or, you could move onto the next zone in the guide, though you may not have the earlier quests. Though that shouldn’t be a problem – the quests are very easy and it’s also easy to catch up with the ones you missed and the exp and such.

        At 54 I’d look at starting the Plaguelands or Burning steppes and continue from there.

        Hope I’ve helped 🙂

    I am full of admirationJame and co, you have done a stellar job with these guides. I am in the process of leveling 5 toons almost simultaneously (I really really hate STV now) and I have only good things to say about the guides. All toons are at 50, and I’ve gotta say after bumbling around on my main for, like a year, it is such a joy to scream through the levels – I mean I just (with the help of a couple of instances) went 50 to 53 with out even noticing! Awsome, easy, comprehensive. If I have one thing to say to the folks out there, it’s do everything the guide tells you to do; the times I haven’t have been the times its all gone Pete Tong.

      One thing that I think couldOne thing that I think could prove invaluable in the guide information is the version number of WoW the guide was written for. This would be a nice and easy way to check the validity of a particular guide as quite a lot has changed in WoW over the last 5 years. As well as giving users a steer on the validity of a particular guide for them it could also allow moderators to easily check and maybe mark guides as out of date for us.

      Possibly this is more important for class guides than levelling guides but can still prove to be very useful and could be added into the guide selection screen of the addon e.g. Jame’s xyz guide (WoW V3.99). A side benefit of this would be keen guide writers could quickly see the most out of date guides and start working on them, keeping all the guides as up to date as possible.

      I realise the guides usually (if not always) have a date on them but I think that this is a more valid and sensible way of noting the relevance of the guide than simply providing a date for the users to look at.

    Not yet any on lvl80 (lvl65 Hunter, lvl61 DK, lvl34 Druid), but that’s mainly due to my own time restrcition.

    Anyhow, I find the guides very clear, inspiring and fun to read and last but not least: accurate.

    Apart from some minor changes Blizzard put in via one their patches: the guide is correct.

    Therefor, my sincere congratulations to Jame for putting this together!!!

    I been using your guide since few years back (the offline webpage version) and now i am using Add ON version. But since patch 4.01, the online add on seem didn’t work perfectly. Here is some detail:

    When I complete a task or even accept a quest, it doesn’t automatically auto selects it and if I do it manually it will auto select many other steps in the guide without my knowledge. Tried going back to 1.4 but 1.3 but this is still happening. Erased the folders in WTF and the LUA in saved variables but same thing happens. Please help.

    Accessing the guidesI can’t seem to access the guides. Every link I use sends me to a different page, but I can’t seem to find how to navigate to the guide itself (I’m looking for the Alliance guide – I’m trying to find the guide for a level 47 Pally).

    Either I’m really screwing it up bad, or I’m a moron (or both!). LOL

    Thank youHi,This is the first time I have played WOW, and find many of the guides perfectly useless for a noob like me. I stumbled on this, and can honestly say that its PERFECT!  Thanks so much for the months of hard work you have put in, and to any other contributors too! It really is a masterpiece and treasure-vault of much-needed info! LOVE IT!
