Okay guys here are some tips on how to get going for the levelling expierence in mist of pandaria:
There’s a big chance that there are que’s on Twisting Nether, so make sure ur logged in before 12:00 on Monday night. And make sure u’ve got another world of warcraft running in the background and as soon as u are kicked off the realm alt tab to the other wow running and press enter so u can login as fast as possible. If ur doing dungeons with ur guildies its very important to get online as soon as possible so u can get going.
Make sure u got 25 dailies ready to turn in before mop launches, scuttle already told u some quest hubs to go to. The easiest way to get the 25 quests is to get 21 quests at tol barad and 4 at the molten front. U can get 9 quests in tol barad peninsula and 12 in tol barad itself, it takes u around 3 days to get all those 21 quests so u better start fast :)
Tol Barad always provides u with 6 quests. 3 of those quests are always there, the other 3 quests are giving by a other questgiver. This questgiver changes after every tol barad win, this way its possible to get all the 12 quests. So check tol barad after every win and if ur lucky ull get all ur quests in 3 wins.
Tol Barad Peninsula
Just do the dailies and check them once every day to see if there are new dailies available, I didn’t get further then 9 quests there but it might be possible to get to 10 or 11.
For the last 4 quests just do 4 quests for the molten front, doesn’t really matter which one just make sure u can complete them really fast.
Make sure u park ur character next to the molten front before launch so u can turn in ur quest asap. After that hearth to orgrimmar and take the portal to tol barad. Turn in the rest of ur quests and start questing/dungeoning to get to lvl 90 :)
Battle Standard of Coordination
Everyone who’s dungeoning should buy this battle standard from the guild vendor. It gives a 15% xp gained buff on killing mobs. This provides a big xp boost when ur dungeoning u can easily chain them when ur running with 5 people.
From personal experience I’ve got some numbers on how many experience the dungeons give.
Stormstout Brewery: 930000 from mobs and 509000 from the quests available.
Temple of the Jade Serpent: 958500 from mobs and 516000 from the quests available.
Those numbers are without the use of a battle standard so they should go up a bit.
Temple of the Jade Serpent
I’ve done some fast runs through the temple and with the gear normalization on beta our best time was 9 minutes through the dungeon. So if u get a good group 9 minutes should be possible. That’s around 6 to 7 runs an hour. Averaging around 6 to 7 million xp per hour. So it takes around 2 hour to level from 85 to 86.
Also did some fast runs and fastest run was around 9 minutes. At lvl 86 we get the temple or the brewery. Im not quite sure yet if we still get an experience reward for doing a random dungeon by the time everyone is lvl 86. If we don’t get the experience bonus anymore it might be better to que for brewery alone. Still averaging around 6 to 7 million xp we should be lvl 87 in 2 to 3 hours from when we reached 86.
After that questing should be a bit faster and we should’ve gone ahead of the pack so ur not competing for quest mobs and stuff. Its also a good idea to do the 2 new unlocked dungeons for the dungeon quests as soon as we’ve hit lvl 87. So make sure u know the tactics of shado-pan monastery and Mogu’Shan Palace. So in 5 to 6 hours we should all be lvl 87 :)
Questing order is the same as scuttle said in his post and if u have some beta experience u’d probably get to 90 in 6 to 8 hours.
So in my experience from beta testing the fastest way possible is:
Dungeons till 87 4,5 hours
Questing till 88 in Kun-Lai Summit 2 hours
Questing till 89 in Towlong Steppes 2,5 hours
Questing till 90 in Dread Wastes 3 hours
So 12 hours of leveling to get to 90 this is without any obstacles and everything going great while leveling. I think u should settle in for like 14 to 16 hours to reach 90. If u reach 90 in 14 hours u should be proud of urself :) I’m hoping to reach 90 in 14 hours and I have gotten 2 chars to 90 on beta and I don’t think im gonna make it.
I’m still not sure if I should level my warlock right after I’ve got my druid to lvl 90 or go farming on my druid for mats to level my proffesions and try and reach 90 on my warlock before Friday.
If u got any comment on this or questions feel free to do so :)
