Naturally, there's nothing wrong with either approach, but what I'm interested in today is your speed leveling secrets. You know, the things where you head over to another area at a funny time. Do you quest in higher level zones or lower level ones? Which is faster? Because, honestly, I'm not sure. You get more XP in higher level zones, per mob, but you might die more too, so that slows you down. You can probably complete quests faster in lower level zones, but then everything awards less XP... swings and roundabouts, as we say over here.
And what else? Heirlooms are rather an obvious one, as is being in a guild over level six so you benefit from the perks, particularly Fast Track. Do you level characters so much that you even have a pre-set path or plan that you follow? Or even just areas that you seek out or avoid thanks to their fantastic or awful leveling experience? What are the fastest races to level, even? I reckon human has got to be up there among the fastest, of course we're really only talking start zones here, but it seemed super-quick to me. What do you think?
