I'm not giving up on the Old World yet. I just dinged 60 and I've barely finished W.Plaguelands and still have E.Plaguelands, Silithus, and Winterspring open. I'm going to do all those quests to see how close to 70 I can get. The gear may be sub par but it will leave open way more quests in Outland after hitting 70 that will load me up on gold. Plus I'm not losing out on content that I've paid for.Though hitting Hellfire for the first few quests to grab the gear may not be that bad of an idea.

The "go to Outlands at 58" advice isn't my own personal preference, as I love the old end-game zones with all my heart. I give it simply because it is the quickest, most efficient way of leveling, and the quests reward you with the best gear for the level. If you like Sillithus or Eastern Plaguelands, by all means, stay as long as you want, and don't let me or anybody else tell you otherwise. If you choose to stay and quest out those zones, you may find yourself at level 61 or 62 before you ever set foot in the expansion zones, and there's something to be said for that. I'm just trying to steer you along the path that will gain you levels fastest and give you the most worthwhile gear, and that means going to Outland at 58.

Absolutely, I completely agree with you. I hit 63 on my Alliance Rogue before going to Outland and I still skipped a bunch of zones. On that toon I was speed leveling, this one I'm taking my time... I still haven't done any instances either. So much to see. I'm looking forward to the next installment of your guide.Right now I'm planning on doing the following quests for the gear boost before heading back to the Old World: Fellspark RavineArelion's Journal (the full line I think)I Work For The Horde (plus it's follow-up)and the Wanted: Worg Master Kruush (plus the follow-up)

If you were speed leveling you should have hit the Outlands... You blow through 58-60 in Hellfire. I went from 1 bar into 58 to 60 in the same day.
