I try and do something a little different every time, which is possible now that leveling is so fast. neither of the last two toons that I played beyond level 50 set foot in STV, for example, and neither of them took the same path through azeroth. Like a lot of people I often get stuck at 58/59 - unable to bear the task of going through the hell that is Hellfire Peninsula. that place is awful. I loved Outland during BC, but now that 1-60 has been entirely re-imagined, most of those zones are pretty stale. I still love the BC instances, though.

I always, ALWAYS stay in Azeroth until level 60 (really easy to get there with the quests in Blasted Lands).Hellfire Peninsula is *marginally* less annoying when you're actually able to fly, and if you wait until 60 to go to Outland, you can technically skip HP altogether and just go to Zangarmarsh if you want.Just sayin'.

Last time I leveled a toon through Outland, I actually finished the 1-60 zones I was leveling in (starting with Plaguelands; it was a toon who had been sitting awhile) and followed the storylines and breadcrumbs to Blasted Lands. I stayed til lvl 62 (when she'dexhausted those quests) and went straight to Terokkar. It didn't feel like a chore to do so either, with guild exp bonus and streamlined leveling (I took off most heirlooms ages ago to try to slow her down at least a little!).Someone I know, back in Wrath, leveled a character without ever going to Outlands. It took a LOT of Classic questing, dungeoning, and some farming of low level mobs in Northrend. This was before gather skills gave exp as well. I bet it'd be even easier to try now; see how much content one can skip. Even doing grey quests gives some exp...
