    Alternatively if you can and have the gold, in wod there is a potion that gives 300% xp, so do a bunch of quests, stack them, drink the potion and then claim those quests.
    This is very good information. Hitting 98 will be a milestone for me. My main is a Druid but I haven't checked on all the changes to tanking so I'm hesitant to just jump straight in to tank, especially if there's some weird mechanics I need to be aware of and I may be pathetically undergeared out of the gate.

    Good to know the exp potions still work too. I will try to upgrade my heirlooms, i've kept quite a few from MOP. I think they removed the EXP bonuses from treasure hunting though, from a leveling guide I read.

    Is there any more information on this? Trial accounts are being boosted to 110?

    -edit- Oh, I think I need BFA for this. I'm not intending to get BFA for the purposes of my leveling, but this is good to know. Thanks!

    Trials come with rep? Didn't know that

    I'm aiming for 110, which I think is possible in 3 days with the right prep work. But again, WoW's changed a lot since I last played, so I'm not sure how the catchup mechanics or powerleveling works. For all I know they could have stomped that all out and gated the hell out of it like they seemed to start at WoD with the garrisons thing.
    Download Azeroth Auto Pilot addon if you're not worried about lore and cinematics. Following this cut down my leveling time dramatically.

    Reputation is necessary in WoW at all levels of the game.

    Allied Races need Legion reps to unlock stuff. Some of the best gear and enchants are locked behind rep. In previous expansions, there were catchup mechanics to build rep quickly, like the Troll Warbringer tokens that I mentioned earlier. I'm not sure if WoD or Legion has added any rep catchup mechanics, like tabard grinding, mob drops or world quests that may offer rep bonuses. Again, I'm coming into this blind from a gameplay-perspective, I'm mostly aware of whatever people generally talk about here.

    I don't expect to build high AP or anything in 3 days, and I know rep grind is usually time gated. I was able to max out most of my MoP reps off a 1-month sub right before WoD hit live.

    They come with Legion WQ already enabled. I know this because my brother made an account for the first time today and he had legion WQ unlocked when he made a 110 trial.

    Correct... if he has pathfinder unlocked (probably not). If he hasn’t, better stick with questing, it won’t take long anyways. He may also get to Legion at 98, grab the artifact weapon and then go back in WoD to steamroll anything up to 101.

    the only 'bonus' rep i can think is weekly bonus for wqs and not sure if it applies for Legion WQs, also - again at lvl 110 - u get 3 factions that rotate where if u do 3 daily quest for any u get bonus with that faction
    as for allied races skip the legion ones they are reskin trash, only good allied race is zandalari and kul'tiran and both require BFA

    Guess it will be impossible to get from 5k into friendly with the Zandalari to exalted in the free time frame? Have not touched Zuldazar yet on my horde char. Was toying with the idea of trying to unlock the Zandalari Trolls. Done most of the war campaign when i unlocked the Mag'har and have done the other two zones to completion so the rest of the Zandalar Forever pasrt won't take long.

After I got my levels I went back and did the quests to cap off and rep and gain a bit of money. I'm planning to do something similar here.

    My characters are level 90, pre-WoD, and I'm looking to bump em up to 110 as quick as possible. I don't have BFA and I have to catchup through Legion anyways. Since not having WoD (back in the day) capped my characters EXP, my garrison followers are higher level than my toons!

    I heard things like people leveling up like crazy over invasions, but I think those are gone now? What's the best way to level up alongside questing?

    Also are there any good tips for rep grinding through Legion catchup mechanics or anything like that.
    yeap, Legion Invasions are your friends for leveling, you can also (if you've the gold) upgrade any BoA's you have up to level 120, they really help, once you hit 110, and get to Boralus, you can level up with Island expeditions, also pretty quickly.
