Certain locations in World of Warcraft – primarily inns, capital cities, and private instanced zones like your garrison or class order hall – are rest areas. You know you’ve entered one because your character portrait will gain a “Zzz” icon where your level is normally shown, and because you can immediately log out of the game instead of waiting 20 seconds.
The first ever WoW Dugi guide, which was released for free on a number on official World of Warcraft forums, was a huge success, putting the talented creator under the spotlight and generating a huge following. Today, there are many more original Dugi guides available on the official website, all insanely popular among gamers looking for optimal WoW power leveling tips and strategies.
Reputations are a very important part of progressing your character in the Battle for Azeroth. Reputations unlock Allied Races when you complete exalted with either 7th Legion or The Honorbound along with the Ready for War (Alliance) / Ready for War (Horde) achievement. As in the past, reputations must be progressed in order to unlock Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part One which will immediately grant you increased movement speed within Kul Tiras and Zandalar and eventually flying later in time. In order to unlock Pathfinder, you will need to progress reputations to revered for all three of your faction's zones, the Tortollan Seekers, and the Champions of Azeroth. Reputations also unlock numerous profession recipes and patterns at honored and revered, many toys and pets at honored and revered, and several mounts and tabards at exalted reputation.
Azeroth paid a terrible price to end the apocalyptic march of the Legion’s crusade—but even as the world’s wounds are tended, it is the shattered trust between the Alliance and Horde that may prove hardest to mend. As the fires of war continue to roar, take the battle to both new and familiar lands with the Tides of Vengeance update, and join your allies to champion your faction’s cause.
Even though you will invariably do a bit of soloing during your time in World of Warcraft, the game is a lot more fun when you have other people to interact with. Whether you’re starting out, or getting back into the swing of things, having helpful mentors feeding you suggestions (or gear, or gold) doesn’t hurt. The /r/wownoob subreddit is a good place to find friends to quest with, as is the main World of Warcraft subreddit (and don’t forget its helpful “Murloc Monday” thread for newbie Q&A).
 Void elf - "Many have sought to harness the corruptive magic of the Void. Most who tried have fallen into madness. Determined to use this power for the good of Azeroth, Alleria Windrunner is the first mortal to succeed at defying the shadow's whispers. Coming to the aid of a group of her kin who nearly gave in to the darkness, Alleria has vowed to train these Void Elves to control the shadows within them and pledge their newfound powers to the Alliance."
I personally wouldn't recommend Bloodmyst Isle. There's a ton of quests but a lot of those quests have absolutely horrible drop rates on their items. A lot of the quest mobs also have very slow and/or spread out spawns so if there's other people there you're gonna be waiting for respawns or spending a lot of time traveling between spawn areas quite a bit. Overall it's just an incredibly slow zone as far as EXP goes.
Let’s start with the basics. At its core, World of Warcraft is a saga that centers on two warring factions: the aforementioned Horde and Alliance. They’ve been fighting each other since the days of MS-DOS, locked a never-ending war—save for those rare moments where they attempt to team up to counter a greater threat—that has taken them across continents, into space, and through time.
Almost all quests in a zone will award reputation for that zone's faction. Be sure to go back and do all of the side quests in a zone in order to maximize your reputation gains. More reputation means more and faster access to gear and other world content. Each day, you should prioritize doing all of the World Quests that you are able to do, especially the ones in on the opposite faction's island for 7th Legion or Honorbound reputation in order to unlock the ninth Mythic dungeon and all parts of the War Campaign. Maintaining your mission table and champions will also prove to be a fruitful method of reputation acquisition as your champions and troops work passively to acquire reputation rewards while you actively earn reputation through World Quests, island expeditions, and other means!
Basically, it’s an epic online project dedicated to fast WoW leveling, as well as some other aspects of the famous online game. Founded and created in New Zealand twelve years ago by Dave Farrell (Dugi), Dugi Guides is a privately owned company with a huge supportive community behind it. What started as a solo project, has now grown into something bigger and better, with a big team of staff and members taking care of website development, customer support, gameplay, Dugi guide creation, marketing and so on.
Even if you don’t have flying in WoD be sure to get the WoD handy notes. If you have flying simply fly and pick up all the treasures that you can and do bonus objectives. Not every single piece of treasure will be worth it though as some are hidden in caves or are just hard to get. So if you find yourself spending more than a few minutes finding a treasure, just skip it and move on, there is plenty of treasure to go around.
Island Expeditions are three-man scenarios that pit the team against three enemies using what Blizzard calls “advanced A.I.” That means the enemies will act more like players, pursuing goals proactively and filling class roles. The expeditions take inspiration from action RPGs, with randomized areas that mix up the experience each time. Players’ main goal will be obtaining resources more quickly than their foes, and expeditions should last 15 to 20 minutes. While primarily meant for PvE, there is a PvP mode that replaces the opposing A.I. with teams from the enemy faction.
Despite all of these problems and this laundry list of glaring systematic issues, the crowning achievement of Battle for Azeroth’s endgame is that it still remains enjoyable all due to those two pillars of raiding and dungeons. That won’t last forever. As the expansion goes on, and the grind necessary to progress becomes even more demanding and the time spent in content that simply isn’t fun increases, it will be harder and harder for raiding and Mythic+ to carry the expansion along.
There are also a number of different online tools you can use to make yourself a better World of Warcraft player—and to help you decide what to focus on. Wowhead has a great Attunement Tool that shows you how close you are to unlocking significant milestones in the game, like unlocking new allied races, earning reputations with key factions (which will ultimately help you unlock faster mount speed and other goodies in the game’s expansion), and how far along you are in your dungeons and raids.

Vol’Dun is the hardest and most tedious of the Horde Zones in Battle for Azeroth. It’s also probably the one that makes the most sense. Each sections of quests leads directly to the one you should do next. For all of these reasons it’s going to be best to get this one done early. Thanks to any legendary items you might have collected in Legion, you’ll be strongest in the leveling process before 115 and weaker after — because that’s when the legendary effects stop working.


No matter your experience level—whether you’re about to experience the thrill of hearing the Stormwind City theme as you walk through its epic gates for the first time, or whether you can spell Ahn’Qiraj off the top of your head—here are some tips and suggestions for making the most of your new life in the World of Warcraft (or your epic, Illidan-like return to Azeroth.)
