I started a couple of characters on a new server about halfway through the expansion. RL was preventing regular raiding, but I could jump on and level for an hour or so when I had time. I didn't want to level on the same server (otherwise I'd be acutely reminded about all the awesome raiding I couldn't commit to), so I headed off to Arygos for a brief bit.Here was my protocol (which worked really well):1) Create the character you want. Don't log in.2) Roll a death knight. Not as "the character I want", but as a seed character. Do the entry quests as quickly as possible. 3) Learn mining. Run around Elwynn/Durotar mining for a few hours. Sell copper on the AH. 4) Take the money from those auctions and buy four netherweave bags. Use the rest to play the AH or keep as an emergency reserve fund (you'll need it while leveling). 5) Send the bags to your new toon, enjoy leveling. It's also nice to have a level 58-60 DK because of the holiday dailies. I think I got a gold per quest for doing 30 seconds of juggling during Fire Festival. Not a huge amount if you're an 80, but if you only have a level 17, any gold is huge...I did end up going back to my original main, not because he was already semi-geared (honestly, I was in Naxx gear during ToC, so gearing up either him or my new 80 would've taken exactly the same amount of time), but because I missed the people in my guild. Not that the people of Arygos are mean or anything, it's just hard to find as a great group of people as my guild.
