I think I'll probably stop questing when I hit 77 until they raise the cap, and just mine a lot to push smithing up.

Hot damn, awesome! Though .. they'll likely add a cost later once it's not beta...


I doubt it. They said they weren't planning on making it cost anything, just wanted to keep people grounded for their first quest zones in Northrend. From the looks of it Storm Peaks will probably be 2/3 fly-only or at least extremely hard to get around without flying.

I jsut looked on some screens from that zone, god, nice work. Will be very very difficult to use the normal mount there, maybe with some cleaver DS jumps, but you can´t access the whole zone like that =/ Btw, what is it in the big round hole in the middle of the zone that I saw on a screen?

So far the quests in the starting area pay about 4-5g and about 15000 exp (Some 20k)

Is it possible to only level in, let´s say, one "side" of Northrend? Or will you be forced to use the same zone on higher levels, let´s say 74-75. The problem will be that if you quest on one side, but you need a good tanking item that is rewarded for a quest on the otehr side. Then you have to do the entire chain in that zone and possible some other prequests aswell. Na, I don´t really like thsi system. The TBC one was better. Straight lvling, around 2 lvls in each zone with all quests completed.

Just curious, anyone tried doing TBC daily quests with the level cap raised? I assume that will give mostly xp instead of gold, but I am not in the beta to test it myself.
Anyway, lets just agree to disagree. Go away, or I'll just start reporting you to the mods for being a troll. In exchange, I'll stop pointing out your stupid in public.

You do get XP for doing Daily quests.

I tested this myself and though the exact number eludes me, I think it was about 9k xp per daily. Not bad, certainly a drop in the bucket compared to northrend quests however.

Only thing I may suggest if anyone were so inclined is to have 25 dailies just sitting completed and turn them in on day 1 of Wrath but that's really not that necessary.
