The Mists of Pandaria beta is right about to start. Friends and Family have access to the game and players will start receiving invites to join them very shortly (weeks?). What is going to be the fastest way to level in MoP? What will the leveling experience be like? In Cataclysm, during the beta, leveling was slowly opened up as content was completed. I believe players were stuck at level 82 for quite sometime. In the Mists of Pandaria beta I’m sure things will be similar.
The first level is going to take place in the Jade Forest, which reminds me a lot of Sholazar Basin. This place is rich with lush trees and kick ass mobs. You’ll spend your first level here.
This level range is kind of weird. On Blizzard’s site it’s saying you’ll spend it in both (or either) the Valley of the Four Winds or in Krasarang Wilds. I recall an explanation that you will be able to decide whether you go north or south. This might be one of those elements that gives you a unique experience when you level your second character from 85 to 90. Based on the next step, I’m thinking that you can get one level in each of these zones and do them in any order.
The next two levels you can get in Kun-Lai Summit. I’m thinking that you can head there after doing either Valley of the Four Winds or Krasarang Summit, or both at level 88. Either way, this place looks awesome. Blizzard has mentioned how “massive” the snow capped mountain is going to seem. Remember, no flying mounts.
The final level can be earned in either the Dead Wastes or Townlong Steppes. After level 89 you can head to the center of the continent to Vale of Eternal Blossoms. These remind me of Storm Peaks and Icecrown Citadel, where you end up finishing half of one or the other zone and then only completing the rest for extra gold, achievements and fun.
Tip: Have you ever wondered how players have so many level 85s or how they can level an 85 so quickly? I use and strongy recommend Zygor's in-game leveling addon which will enable you to level in 5 days of played time. You can find a free version of it here.
