    While this is true, the problem with doing Krasarang and Four Winds without moving to Kunlai at 87, Townlong at 88, and Dreadwastes at 89, is the XP you get for Krasarang/Four Winds is far less than the higher level zones.

    So sure, munching through all of the quests of Jade Forest/Krasarang/Four Winds before moving on will definitely push you along, and make it seem like you didn't need to do as much in Kunlain/Townlong/Dreadwastes, you will go faster by moving to the next higher zone as soon as possible, since the quests take roughly the same amount of time but yield significantly more XP per turn in.

    Hit level 86:
    Krasarang or Four Winds avg quest turn in = 129k xp (before bonuses)
    Hit level 87:
    Kunlai Summit avg quest turn in = 162k xp (before bonuses)
    Hit level 88:
    Townlong Steppes avg quest turn in = 196k xp (before bonuses)
    Hit level 89:
    Dread Waste avg quest turn in = 236k xp (before bonuses)

    The other thing is by starting Dreadwaste at 89 and doing all of those quests, if you have the commendation, you will be something like ~15k/21k towards exalted with Klaxxi, which will net you a free 489 ring and access to 463 weapons you can purchase for gold to help boost a fresh 90. Only a few days of dailies would be required to finish capping exalted at that point.

    Are you pandaren? Having twice as much rested XP can have a bigger effect than you might think.

    Edit: I have leveled 11 90s. Doing Jade Forest, Krasarang, Four Winds and Kun-Lai gets me to 90 before leaving Kun-Lai each time. I cycled thru them to ensure I always had rested XP.

    At launch of MoP my Warlock hit 90 just starting dread wastes and had no gather professions. My Paladin which I leveled a couple months ago hit 90 just after entering Townlong with mining nodes along the way...with the 33% exp reduction it's going to be pretty easy to smash out 90 without hitting Townlong.

    Fully rested. If you quest for a while, burn up some rested, then don't play again for a bit, I could see it.

    Going from 85-90 and finishing in Dread Wastes was for right at the launch of the xpac, no rested.
    Profanity is the inevitable linguistic crutch of the inarticulate mother%$#@er.

    I prefer to skip straight to dread wastes at 89 to start collecting gear that'll help get your Ilvl where it needs to be to queue for heroics.

    I've done 2lvls in Jade Forest, 1lvl in V4W, 1lvl in TLS, and final level doing most of DW.

    I'll finish up Dread Wastes, then TL Steppes, mainly for the rep. Only quest i Did in kun-lai was the requisite to enter vale.

    Thats another good reason to do DW. All the nice blue gear you get at the end of the quests. As for rep, you should do the Shado Pan quests in Kun-Lai and Townlong and at least the AC quests in Townlong. There are AC quests in other zones but they are buried behind a lot of other quests so if you want to level quickly youll have to skip them and come back later.
