    Ah and btw I am just doing the Twilight Highlands intro quests, thought it would be good xp because they are fast done and are on a little area, what do you think about it? Looks like it will give me almost a full level from 84 to 85.
    Technically you could keep doing Ramparts until the enemies grey out and become worthless. But from the perspective of raw speed it's going to be better exp/h to use questing.

    I haven't gone to Twilight Highlands since Cata, so you're on your own there. I generally go to Mt Hyjal, since it's a known factor at ~1million exp/h for me. A lot of people go to Jade Forest in MoP, or even Vashj'ir.

    BTW: I use titanpanel to track exp/h, in case you were wondering.

    I started to level in Pandaria, took some treasures with me and then I saw you said Hyjal, since I am leveling a hunter Hyjal would be better when I want the fire Scorpion pet later in the quest story good that you said it!

    Yeah I didn't level Highlands fully, just did the intro quests till you get the portal to Orgrimmar and it gave me almost 1 full level just from the few quests. And it was pretty fast because they are all in such a small area, only thing that was a bit slow was the flying to Highlands I mean the little "scenario" on the ship

    With Hyjal I just know exactly where everything is. I don't have to think, I just go from point to point to point. It's super-focused, and especially with a hunter you'll be able to pull things quickly. But on top of that is how close together quests are, and how there are a lot of quick quests where you just click on things.

    But here's the thing: If I was just as familiar with MoP zones and quests, I suspect that might actually be faster with treasures scattered around. Valley of the Four Winds especially, since there are very few cutscene quests there. Jade Forest is full of stupid "follow Loremaster Cho" type stuff. Uhg...

    I know Hyjal as well as Jade Forest so it doesn't matter which one I'll do

    Yeah Hyjal is by far better what I'm seeing now with the new leveling and btw I can't stand the Jade Forest leveling anymore, gives me headache because I was there so often.

    Hoenstly, I've been meaning to try Deepholme instead of Mt Hyjal. You want to talk about closely packed quests with very little cutscene nonsense, there it is. I always forget that I can do that due to zone scaling. At 82 you can skip straight to it. It'll be interesting to see if it's faster or not.

    Which I'll mention is all the more reason to unlock the mailbox toy from the hidden postmaster quest chain. Gilneas for example doesn't have any mailboxes until you finish the starting area. That I could find, at least.

    Oh, and gunshoes and glider kits. How did I forget to mention those in the last post? Gunshoes being most useful before you have an epic mount, and glider kits before you've got flying to take time saving shortcuts. Or even after flying as a quick getaway since they can be cast in combat unlike a flying mount. I never level an alt without 'em.

    1 trash run gave me 42% of a level, is this okay?
    And it says 81-82, but less than 10% of the mobs are actually 72 and still reward XP @82, so at best its 80-81 (but bc heroics still work @80, so it's 81 only).
    ZG trash farming also does not work for every class (as he already mentioned). It worked perfectly on my hunter and my warlock, but my mage just gets twoshotted from the not kitable berserkers and also aoe farming elites (like the crocos) was a tough call when not all CDs were up.

    So best way for 81-90 seems to be simple questing. Finishing hyjal, collecting pandaren treasures plus one or two instances do the trick for me.

    You can almost one shot them when you take the "Ice" buff, if they are what I think of you meant.

    I'm not super familiar with mages, but IIRC they've always had trouble farming old instances due to a lack of self-healing and reliance on CC that doesn't always work on elites. Still, you should be able to stick to the fish in the water and make good exp/h.

    The "Non-kitable berserkers" aren't supposed to be facerolled. You click the ice cauldrons then hit them. Or just avoid them entirely.

    No, I am talking about those big-troll mini bosses.

    Ah..those guys. Yeah, they hit pretty hard, even on my bear tank.

    All I can really say is...skip them? Your exp/h won't be significantly impacted. This is what I do, since I don't think they're really worth the effort.

    anybody ever use Zygor guides? my buddy who wasn't very invested in the game and just wanted to level as quick af bought into it, albeit years ago but he had some success. Just curious if it's still apropos to the current system?

    I didn't do a massive search, but this is something you have to pay for? Why would you do that when the rest of the internet full of info exists? O_o

    Edit: Looked a little more into it. Apparently they're selling an add-on which links to a guide. Which is a loophole to get around Blizzard's policy against selling add-ons.

    Even if the guide was good, I'd recommend against supporting such a "business". The guide in my signature is the fastest method I'm aware of, free, on these forums, and has current discussion in the thread.

    Yeah, I never used such Add-Ons because youtube, mmo-champion etc. are full of great infos how to level fast and efficiently.

    Well, actually they give 19k XP vs 600XP for a non elite mob, and there are 7 of them. And they were just extreme examples of things that were no problem with other classes but twoshotting me as a mage. Together with the constant need for regenerating after each aoe pull all I say is that exp/h in ZG might not be optimal for all classes.

    I won't lie
    Mage would be the last class I ever level up. I have zero interest in it.

    How do they even self heal, or regain Mana? Maybe try different specs for farming? Have you tried just doing the inner circle of water with the fish and hydras? Do you have problems with the normal troll elites?

    But if it's ust not working, then yeah, stick to questing or maybe give method-0 a shot(should be Lost City of Tol'Vir at that level).

    Mage doesn't need to self heal because you kill things before they hit you, plus Barrier spells (and biscuits). Mana isn't an issue because they don't actually lose mana more than they regenerate it, unless you chose for some reason to level as Arcane, in which case you have Evocation.
