    Well, you could skip tanaan though, so maybe we get something similar like that.

    Skipping the maw intro seems like one of those QoL things that come in a .1 or .2 patch.

    If im honest, other than the server issues making the game feel horrible to play in certain zones, my only real complaint in these very early days is the level of "ok now click this, now click that, now talk to this person, now click that, now follow this person, now click this, now follow this person again, now click this thing, now go flying for a bit in a scripted scenario, while spamming one key, ok now run over here, ok NOW you can kill 5 people".

    I realise there are some who love that stuff, but i personally prefer to actual play my character in a combat situation, so 3 different "go kill 10 of these and 5 of these" quests.

    The answer is somewhere in the middle. There are positives. You don't have to go back to the maw at all until 60, there are no long tedious RP portions. Time wise its about the same as playing through the story, maybe slightly faster due to no RP. The negative is that the "bonus objective" areas are complete mindless grindfests and the % requirements are way too high. A lot of the side quests are also very boring.

    I did 50-60 in about 6hrs 30 with theads of fate.
    And i was by no means trying to go supers fast. Was levelling professions etc at the same time.
    Ended up getting some anima and other useful items so i wasn't "behind" as it were at 60. (Not that you can be in a new expansion, but you get the idea).

    All i did was, maw opener, oribos. Chose covenant.
    Went to all 4 zones doing the fill the bar quests. And i was 60. Pretty happy, i can level my alts organically doing WQs or doing or whatever i fancy doing on the day. If i feel lke doing story again, i can.
    So yeah, 2nd 60 done i first week. Pretty happy with that. Few friends did dungeons with a group of 5 and did it in around 6 hours so yeah. 10lvls in 6 hours yay?

    There was a skip built into that intro pretty shortly after WoD's release.

    Honestly wish I didn't do this with my second character AT ALL. Loving the expansion so far and loved the initial campaign so this isn't a hate-inspired post. It just feels so blah running around and doing side quests and WQs the entire time. Would definitely rather go through the campaign again but I can see the appeal behind it if you want to strictly dungeon/pvp grind your way to 60

    Thanks blizzard for gives us this choice because leveling in Shadowlands is so boring.

    you can get a head start on earning your Covenant’s Renown by depositing Anima you collect into their reservoir.
    So I can earn Anima from world quests, but my alt seems to be stuck at Renown level 1 and there appears to be no way of depositing Anima into the sanctum reservoir. Anybody else?

    Pretty sure you can't turn it in until 60 regardless.

    This is so cool. Although I instantly ran into level 60 monsters everywhere in Bastion at level 50 when I wanted to explore and look for rares. Guess it's not that open world after all.

    It feels weird to see "the quests will be marked as complete" but from what I understand the quest reward transmogs won't be auto-learned.

    Skip Tanaan intro 3 days after WoD launch?
    Don't recall it that way.

    Im doing it right now on my hunter and this is exactly my feeling after 5 lvls of exping

    Going through the story more than once is more than boring, it gives you the choice to go through the story or level even faster without it, i will always choose the more fun route and ignore the story where you are constantly waiting for npcs to move or talk.

    That's... not even remotely what he said. He was just replying to the post about how since it's not a scenario and is actually a leveling zone it's not likely to be skipped. He was just pointing out there was a precedent for skipping quest-zone intros.

    And the Tanaan skip was added about three months after release, so it's not like it was an end of expansion thing.

    Leveling an alt with Threads of Fate, and i like it.

    You can go slowly by just doing world quests for anima (getting vast amounts of anima once you reach 60) or a few dungeons, or you can just do some secondary story lines, and the hefty XP bonus after filling a zone bar is super nice.

    My only issue (and not strictly about Threads of Fate) is how long some bonus objective progression bars take, and how little XP it awards on conclusion.

    All the rest? Great.

    Just wish we could skip the Maw intro. 30minutes with too much running around and RP, and completely halting moments (clicking the helm shards, Jaina explaining the maw, etc).

    It's also really nice for profession / gathering alts to get them started.

    "maybe slightly faster" lmao what are you doing? It took 1/2 of the time for my alt to get to max level with threads of fate.
    Don't let min-maxers ruin Shadowlands for us! Rise up, fellow casuals!
