    Leveling to 90, making it less linear.

    Hey guys,

    Lately I've been reading up and started on my 5th toon in the race to 90.
    Everytime I've quested it's been the same.
    The same quests, the same zones...

    Anyone has idea's on how to give me a better, fresher experience?

    EDIT: This is about Mists of Pandaria zones.
    I have a 87 Paladin and 86 Shaman now, we're talking about my Shaman. :P

    Kind of irrelevant but.
    On my dk I leveled through herbing from 80-82. You could also grind the most in Dread wastes, level via arch, dungeon or pvp even.

    Its the same, except for half of quests in Jade Forest. And even quests in Jade Forest are mostly the same, but in different part of zone.
    Skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius. It makes sense, you are actually skinning their best friend.

    There really is only a few routes you can take and after you lvl to 90 twice you've pretty much seen all of MoP sadly.

    on my first play through...
    - did jade forest and pretty much the entire questline(s)
    - went into the valley of 4 winds and completed it
    - did the southern Kun-Lai Summit
    - finished up in the Townlong Steppes

    on my second playthrough (alt #1)
    - left jade forest at lvl 86
    - went the Krasarang Wilds path instead of V4W
    - went the northern route of Kun-Lai Summit
    - finished in the dread wastes

    on my third play through (horde alt)
    - went were I pleased...

    Yeah... I left jade at 86 now in Krasarang.
    I HATE V4w.

    Look mate, I know you want a fresher experience. But how can one have a fresher experience after already levelling 4 characters? I wish there was something available tho.

    The story is the story. And while perhaps you didn't have a storyline/questline THIS linear in WoW before - you have no other options basically. Sure you can just do dungeons or just farm mobs/mats - but thats even MORE boring. Perhaps PVP is an option. But it wouldn't be an option to me.

    So for the time being you are stuck with the story you've seen 4x already. It is a bit like watching a movie ain't it. After a couple of views you start to know the dialogue by heart and it gets boring.

    And what others suggested to just jump to a different province, that wouldn't be an option to me. You usually miss some quests you have to go back to, to complete the questchain leading up from the other province etc.

    I have a friend who leveled some by farming rares. Someone flew him around for that though.

    Thanks buddy, this is exactly what I thought would've been the answer.

    Guess I'll go mindlessly grind the quests.. time for Zygor.

    Mindlessly indeed. Oh and if you do find something that feels fresh and new give me a PM, I am very much in the same boat as you
