I selected howling fjord, but I'm probably going to grind the Borean Tundra opening quests around Warsong Hold, then do the Howling Fjord instance a few dozen times. Hopefully my wife and I be 71.5 or 72 and everyone else around us will be 70 for shared areas.

Alliance outnumber horde 3:1 on my server.

edit: also, the quests with Warsong should get me friendly for the tabard. This means the heavy instance grind should knock a lot out of the way.

I'd recommend to everyone on a pvp server doing both starting areas first. Most people will be heading to the higher areas as soon as possible. So this way I can get 73 and gank 70-71s.

Fjord for my main because it looks much better than Tundra. Fortunately, there are Grand Master profession trainers in both zones, so I'll take some of alts to Tundra.

I'm thinking that I will do 70-73 in Black Morass. Should give 100k+ exp per clear, 5 clears per hour rested. Other option is the mobs on in the BT roof / outer zone.
Then start quest grinding in the opening zone.

Compared to months grinding hardcore CS/Baal in D2/LoD, a day or so on this is nothing.

I predict I'll start off in the "World Server is offline" zone and gradually progress to the "Instance server not found" zone.

Kind of tangential, but I have 2 questions:

(1) Is it worth stocking up on high xp Outlands quest (15k+ XP) and turning them all in on Wrath day? Someone said they're going to nerf all Outland quest xp, so it's pointless.

(2) If you have a passive uncrushable set, and can solo pull all of Black Morass, is that a viable leveling strategy for the first 1-3 levels, or should you just put on your ret/prot gear and quest?

Hmm. When this happens, I'll probably log my banker and watch angry people yell at noobs asking how to get to Northrend.
I rule.

Having tried both in Beta, I much preferred HF for some reason. I was playing my Alliance Paladin at the time though so all of the Horde quests will still be fresh for me.

Pretty much gonna stick to Borean horde side, I prefer it but I also be clearing Fjord in it's entirety as well before I jump to Dragonblight so I will be popping back and forth.

I've done maybe 4 quests in Netherstorm, 8 in Shadowmoon Valley, and none in Blade's Edge Mountains. Plus, I still have half of Nagrand.

Screw Northrend, I don't feel like wasting my time fighting everyone for the same thing.

Fjord for me, regardless of population.


Just out of curiosity, why is it impossible to skip the starting zones?

let me quote PsiVen:
"you need to be 71-72 to start questing in DB/GH"

wowhead says the same -> http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?zone=65#quests:0+3+1+2
most quests require clvl 71 or higher.

Why quote him? He made a statement without giving a reason for it.

Stating that most quests require level 71 answered it. Which is what I wanted to know. Thank you for that.

actually, he gave the reason ^^

It's not possible to skip the starting zones, you need to be 71-72 to start questing in DB/GH.
