I don't mean to put down people's hard work, but after having raised a few toons to 80 now I don't think that leveling in the early levels is all that difficult or deserving guides on how to do so. There's been a lot of columns on wowinsider devoted to what people have been doing for the past five years already when plenty of leveling guides already exist on the internet.I generally come to wowinsider to read insightful columns that I don't get elsewhere. For example the most recent column on the Care and Feeding of Warriors. But what's really the point in writing about what's already been written about for a couple of years especially in the light of a new expansion and all new leveling-experiences coming out in roughly a year's time?Additionally, with 20% experience bonus heirlooms and even other ease-to-level BoA equipment are the levels posted about above really that challenging that people need multiple class-specific guides on doing each ten levels?It's not my place to tell people how to do their jobs by any means, and if you think of this post as just that, mark me down, ignore me and move on. All I really wish to do is raise my concern as a reader and fan of this website for maintaining a high quality of interesting work about pertinent information.

It would be ok if the guides had accurate information in them, instead of blindly stumbling through a really awful way of leveling a hunter.

Honestly, I think the guides are perfectly fine. Just because the guide doesn't seem useful to you doesn't mean it wouldn't be useful for anyone else. Not everyone is starting a Hunter with the 20% exp bonus or the RaF. I think the guide would do /better/, though, if he didn't make one guide a week with only 10 levels. 1-20, 21-40, 41-60, and single articles about 61-70 and 71-80 would work much better to be honest. Some people do want to get to the 80 game and they might get there faster than he is making articles. Simply put, I love these kind of guides about leveling, but the people at 80 want the guide to be done quickly, not slowly. 8 weeks with nothing but leveling guides won't do at all.Or even do it the way you're doing it now, but make it 2 articles a week, with one being the guide and the other being talks about 80 endgame. Either way would be better.

Not ragging on you either but your reply to the post wasn't well thought... As you can tell, Wow.com is Under the AOL banner so yes, it is a job not a basement operation from home. With that being said, how much fresh Hunter information is out there? Damn near "everything" in the game up to the current patch has been covered from videos to the color of a quest NPC's undergarments.
