The leveling guides on my site are essentially speed leveling guides.  My leveling guides are the same guides I use myself to speedrun to 60 on new servers to get 60 server first.  I list many occasions where I tell the player to "die on purpose" to go faster.  I tell the player to skip certain quests, because some quests are just not worth the time/XP.  I list tricks and shortcuts to go faster so you can reach level 60 much quicker.  I am still constantly going through them over and over again perfecting the guides to make them faster and easier to follow.  For the most part, the guide can be followed without the need from other player's help, as the whole guide was made from a solo run anyways.  Although I do list quests that can optionally be done if you have a group.

World of Warcraft is very old, by videogame standards. It was released in 2004. And about every two years, Blizzard releases a new expansion to update the game. Typically expansions don't really replace content, but it does displace it, and changes to mechanics and player abilities are indeed permanent and "retroactive". And in 2010, the Cataclysm expansion DID actually replace the old content from the release game.
The Horde 12-20 (Barrens + Stonetalon Mountains) guide has been rewritten and revamped.  In addition, there has been numerous tweaks to the speedrun route to make things faster and easier to follow.  Also, in case you haven't noticed I am now adding about 40% more info per step and redoing all the images.  Unlike with my previous vanilla guides, I am now giving a brief explanation of where to go and what to do with each step along with any other helpful tips.

Create a Bank Alt and level it up to level 5 - The leveling part is very important because you can pick up Enchanting after you reach it. In Classic, you can disenchant EVERY uncommon item of every level, if you have the enchanting profession. Disenchanting weak BoE Uncommon Items and selling Enchanting Materials on AH will help you make some extra money out of otherwise Vendor-destined gear. The Bank Alt will also serve as your high-capacity storage for various items* that are bound to rise in value over time or might come in handy at a later date. Overall, this is a must-have, as it will improve your overall leveling and Gold-making efficiency, let you store additional items, allow you to consolidate your Gold on a single character, and provide you with a way of squeezing some extra Gold out of various Items.


Thalassian Base Camp (marked BLUE on the map) - Some Blood Elves have set up a camp in the northern parts of the Azshara. Blood Elf Reclaimers and Blood Elf Surveyors that can be encountered in the said camp are rather easy to kill and have very good Loot Table. The most notable items dropped by those Elves include Runecloth, Mageweave Cloth, 16 Slot Backpacks, various Vendor Trash Items (junk weapons, armor, and so on), and Pocket Money. They can also be Pickpocketed, so this spot presents an additional value for Rogues. Blood Elf Reclaimers have access to strong Fireball, Heal, and Renew Spells, so they should be interrupted when possible and prioritized. Recommended Level - 52+ (54+ to be extra safe, and farm Elves at an increased pace).
If possible, avoid purchasing Gear from the Auction House - Ideally, you should be able to achieve level 60 without buying anything from the Auction House. This way you will save Gold, but possibly make leveling a bit harder for yourself. If you badly require an Item upgrade, and the suitable Item is available on the Auction House for a low enough price - buy it, but only if you think that the investment will pay for itself in one way or another (the main exceptions to the Auction House ban Rule are Weapons and Wands, as they make leveling much faster, and pay for themselves by allowing you to chain-kill more mobs without Eating and Drinking, which saves Gold and time).

Nov 15 My only complain about Classic... ...Horde doesn't have any nice looking races. In my mind each class has best RPG based race for it. So, I like Gnomes because I feel them Mages. Night Elves - Hunters. Humans - Paladins. On Horde side: Undead - ugly. Trolls - ugly. Orcs... uhh fine as Warriors, but I don't play warriors. Tauren - Warriors or Shaman, again don't play those. Blood Elves! Give me Blood Elves!Vlasta36 Nov 15
WoW: Classic is still in beta stage, so this is still unclear what final shape will the game have upon release. If any of the information above appears to be out of date or inaccurate we will try to update it as soon as possible. We will also appreciate your help with catching possible mistakes and fixing this guide for other players. If you have any feedback on it, please leave it in the comments below.
Isle of Dread Chimaeras (marked BLUE on the map) - The Isle of Dread, located near the Western coast of Feralas is inhabited by very dangerous, Elite Chimaeroks and Arcane Chimaeroks. These vicious beasts are rather difficult to kill solo (unless you are a Hunter or a very skilled Mage), so bringing up a Partner might be in order. These Chimaeras drop Vendor Trash Items (Brilliant Scale and Forked Tongue), but most importantly, they are the only source of the Chimaerok Tenderloin (These are used in the Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops Cooking Recipe that creates +25 Stamina Food, which is the best Food Consumable for Tanks in Classic). The Tenderloins can be sold on the Auction House for a very good price or Cooked and sold for even better profits (we have mentioned how to get the Recipe in the Cooking Profession breakdown above). The Chimaeras can also be Skinned for Rugged Leather, Thick Leather, and Rugged Hide, so Skinning Profession will provide so additional income from this Spot. Recommended Level 60 and a team of Two, unless you are a Hunter. 

Nov 15 Dual Boxing in Classic I was seriously thinking about being a masochist and playing a paladin in classic but then I wondered if dual boxing will still be possible in classic with the change in engines running the game. I've never dual boxed so will have to research how it works. However, it hit me that I can dual box a warrior and a priest then transfer the priest to my main account at 60 so I will have the best tank and best healer in the game to play around with. Anyone else planning on doing this and have any good resources to start learning about it?Twiinkedd6 Nov 15
Raiditem owns a top-class raid team who has over 10 years' experience of helping WoW gamers get all the WoW items they want. At Blizzcon 2017 Blizzard unveiled their plan on the development of WoW classic vanilla server, check out the official announcement video on YouTube for more details. As the most trustworthy site, raiditem.com will offer possibly the cheapest WOW Classic items including WoW Vanilla server gold, WoW Classic mounts, WoW legacy servers boe items, and other WoW Classic server service once the Vanilla WoW server officially releases. 

Step-by-step class guides are on the way!  The 1-12 Mulgore Guide is the first guide to get all the individual class steps.  At the top of the guide, simply select which class you are playing and the page will dynamically update all the steps in the guide for that class (both text and images).  The rest of the guides will be slowly updated overtime to include all the class steps, but you can see how it's going to work with the 1-12 Mulgore.  I want to thank crazyK and his Placeholderguild for helping me out with the individual class content.  They are allowing me to get the 1-60 Alliance guide done while also getting all the class steps done at the same time, so everything can be ready for Classic launch (hopefully).

Whelgar's Excavation Site - This Dwarven excavation site was overrun by Raptors (Mottled Scythemaws and Mottled Razormaws). These reptiles are a great source of Medium Leather (you should have Skinning Profession if you want to farm here, as a very large portion of income that comes from this spot is acquired by Skinning Raptors). They also drop some Vendor Trash Items and Raptor Eggs (these are convenient, as a Cooking Recipe for them comes from a Quest that is located just above the Site) that can be used for Leveling up Cooking Skill. However, the best part about this spot is that both Raptor types present here drop level 19 Twink Gear (Feet of the Lynx, Sentry Cloak, Redbeard Crest, and Twisted Chanter's Staff) that will achieve astronomical prices at the later stages of the Game (drop rates are very low, so some RNG is involved, sadly). Recommended Level - 25+.

Kaivax, a WoW forum community manager, revealed that WoW Classic's class design, battleground mechanics and stats on existing items will be set to their 1.12 state, despite the game releasing content that expands beyond that. This removes "progressive itemization," so if the stats on a specific piece of equipment was changed during the original updates, that won't take effect in this version.


Kurzen's Compound (marked BLUE on the map) - Colonel Kurzen was once a very talented Stormwind Officer. He was sent with an expedition to the Jungles of Stranglethorn, where he fell victim to Mai'Zoth, a powerful Ogre Mage and his foul magic. Majority of Colonel's troops are still loyal to him and provide Players with some valuable Loot. In this spot, you will encounter Kurzen Jungle Fighters, Kurzen Medicine Men, Kurzen Wranglers, and Kurzen Commandos. These Humanoids drop a lot of Silk Cloth (that can be generally turned into Bandages and Vendored), valuable Wool Cloth (the main source of Gold from this spot, check the AH prices), Fadeleaf (Medicine Men), Liferoot (Medicine Men), 12 Slot Bags (Commandos), Vendor Trash Items, and some Pocket Money. This spot is especially good for Rogues, as the ability to Pickpocket mobs will increase profits by a noticeable margin. Recommended Level - 34+ (36+ to be extra safe, as Humanoid mobs can be problematic because they tend to run away on low health and pull additional enemies).
