The only issue I have with this is that I found the Voidwalker to be rather useful actually. Now, I haven't leveled a 'lock since the end of Wrath, but I found from about level 60 on, the Voidwalker was my best pet. I could level easily in areas where my quests were red instead of green or yellow. I send in the VW, begin my attack and when they've decided I make a better target, use the VW taunt. I'd end up killing the mob shortly after they got to me - since they doubled back to attack after the taunt and then headed back to me when it wore off. If I got in trouble with a couple mobs in melee range, the VW bubble usually bought enough time to burn one down enough that when the bubble dropped, I'd have the VW taunt one off until I get to where I can handle them again 1 on 1.Like I said, though - it's been a while since I leveled the whole 1-85, so things may have changed since then.

If you're talking about pure efficiency, knocking out a ton of green and yellow quests has always been superior to doing red quests. The thing is, leveling is a lot different now than it was for the end of Wrath. tbh I don't even see red quests anymore in Cata, the way they have zone progression set up now. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head have been dungeon quests for multi-winged places like Stratholme or BRD. Maybe the group quests in Ghostlands, but those are completely trivial to solo even for clothies now in my experience. Things are also much different in terms of leveling pets now than they were at the end of Wrath. Blueberries are beyond useless for leveling now, ever since they got nerfed into irrelevance because of things like people tanking Sartharion with them. They can't hold aggro worth a damn anymore, even if you have taunt macro'd and apply it manually, and even if your toon's not in heirlooms. If you are, sneezing will pull aggro. Which doesn't matter in the scheme of things unless you're fighting one of the rare remaining elite quest mobs because everything dies so fast. You're generally better off using a felpuppy or whatever for the extra dps. I only used my VW on my current lock until I got the succubus.
