Can I just have a Level One Get One Free option at this point? For every 85 I have I can insta-level another to 85?But in a slightly more serious tone, I've only had one 85 since Cata hit (and that was 2? days in). I have 9 other characters making their way. 3 were 80 at the end of Wrath, 4 were 60, and two are new.I don't know what everyone else has experienced, but:1-60 flies by. I'd rather quest than run dungeons, it seems to go faster. 60-66/67 goes pretty fast. ESPECIALLY with rest experience. With rest and dungeon running it took 2ish dungeons a level.67-80 slow. painful. 80-82 not too bad.82-83 I leveled 3 chars by running two dungeons and doing about 20 Deepholm quests.83-84 I FLEW threw this yesterday on one of my alts.84-85 Not as bad as I remember it. Although guild xp + heirlooms + rest experience helps a lot.

I wanted to expand on my "Slow, painful" comment for 67-80. It's not -that- bad. Questing anyway. But when you go to getting 10 bars per dungeon at 60-65 to 2 or 3 if you are very lucky.. Yeah.

THIS! EXACTLY THIS!I had this great idea to tank my way from 15-85. I made it to 77. Then, the 500th time I ran Gun'drak without gaining a single level, I said "FORGET THIS!" and went to IC to finish leveling.I'm not kidding. I went to Utgarde Pinnacle 94% into the next level (I don't have "bars" on my XP Bar, i have a percent). I finished the dungeon. At the end: 100%, though NOT ENOUGH TO COMPLETE THE DAMN LEVEL (I was maybe 4k shy of the level). Thankfully I had the quests so I did get my level, but REALLY!? I didn't gain 6% of the level requirement through an entire dungeon!The same thing happened on my DK. And my hunter (of course, by the time I got her to Northrend, I had two other toons there, so doing some of the quests was enough to make me want to kill myself!) New strat for me: HF or BT until 73/74, do my best to skip Dragonblight (I HATE THAT ZONE!), 76 in Grizzly Hills (or whatever it's called), SP to 78-ish, IC to 80 (I play a zone until I get to the point where I don't like the quests anymore, I've done them enough that I know that point)
