    What? you can hit 110 in 2 1/2 zones, you don't need to finish any of the stories on an alt, WQ unlock at 110, not with rep, you seriously don't need to finish anything anymore.

    With alts that are rested, you don't have to do close to all the zones. None of my last 4 have taken much of the same path at all.

    I also do the profession quests on them as I level, which decides what parts of zones I do as I go- none of mine have felt like I'm repeating the same things much at all.

    Honestly, if you could bypass leveling or at least do it a lot faster once you've done it once, that'd be superb. What little entertainment you get while leveling comes from discovering new zones; on an alt you've seen everything already and nothing is hard so it just feels stupid.

    how do you level from 100 to 110 in 6 hours? i've only leveled one alt so far and that took me like 12 hours. i'm not the fastest when it comes to leveling lol.

    Use rested XP, du dungeons.

    Or simply don't play yet another alt if you can't put the work in.

    You do know, that you can skip the Broken Shore Scenario after you did it on your first character?

    Also zone design was just so SO much better it's insane. The only zone that had a lot of verticality was Nagrand and even that was only one part of it.
    you don't have to finish every zone in legion, i believe my last 2 toons have capped in 2.5-3 zones

    If you knew you would run the other way.

    Yeah so very true it is very difficult to know what people want, one minute it is they don't like this so the dev changes it to be better. But then those same people hate the change and so the dev changes it again, and again the people don't like it.. Really a game dev has it a lot harder when it comes to creating a game / adding content..

    It may be so but at least it is not really the railroad leveling in previous xpacs like MoP where you started in Jade Forest and ended in Vale of Eternal Blossoms.. WoTLK and Cata were slightly different where you had two start zones but eventually you were directed to the same end zone.. TBC was pretty much A to B leveling from Hellfire Peninsula at the start and ending in Shadowmoon Valley..
