WoW Rookie: Cataclysm changes to early and middle levels

New around here? WoW Rookie has your back! Get all our collected tips, tricks and tactics for new players in the WoW Rookie Guide.

If you're not a leveling player -- and sorry, but that does not include you wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am types zipping up your latest alts -- then as I tell my family when they're hovering around me when I'm trying to write, "I love you; now go away." Today's WoW Rookie is all about stuff that matters to players who focus on WoW's leveling game. If you've got the whole leveling thing down pat ... if leveling is just a chore to get to the end game, where "the game begins at 80" ... if your pre-80 character is just one among your entire stable of toons ... then move along, big guy. Your secret handshake didn't pass muster at this clubhouse.

For those of us gleefully picking our way through the levels, we're going to take another look this week at what's ahead for us in the expansion. First, I've got a lead to share on a friendly place to tuck into for companionable leveling. Then we'll round up a whole collection of facts and developments on how Cataclysm will change the game for players in the 1-60ish range. If you're an assiduous reader of The Queue, none of this will be new news; we've cherry-picked some recent goodies that apply to players in the early to middle levels.

Choose My Adventure: Nekkid

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

Sandwichdoc has real style. Not only was he able to do all his dance moves on top of a mailbox, he was showered with rose petals while he flaunted his nekkidness. We have more nekkid dancing as well as some advice and stories after the break. But first, here's the schedule:
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage; Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman; Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage; Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter; Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid; and Gregg Reece as Sandwichdoc, the troll shaman, will be making appearances as they can.

Choose My Adventure: I learned my lesson

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

First, the schedule:
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman; Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage; Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter; and Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, will be making appearances as they can
So anyway, I learned my lesson. Don't put anything that I want to do on a poll, because you'll vote against it. And don't put anything I don't want to do on a poll, because you'll vote for it. We have a few polls this week. Because <It came from the Blog> is a huge, friendly, helpful guild, we often have guardians to help us through tough situations. Fast, easy leveling is kind of built in. So please vote for what you'd like to read about -- not what would make us level faster.

Choose My Adventure: Letters home

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

Here is the schedule for the rest of the week. Robinemia will do a little bit more nekkid mailbox dancing tonight but is then going to play with fire. So meet at the Orgrimmar bank if you want to join me.
  • Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT

Choose My Adventure: Nekkid silliness

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

What is with you people? I just don't get it. You nix the bunny ears and have voted for nothing but silliness since. Is it guilt? Are you having violent silly/srsbsns mood swings? Explain yourselves!

We'll give you what you want. We'll dance nekkid on a mailbox. But I don't see how we're ever going to get to Molten Core readiness by doing so. Don't you want to read about us doing 40-mans at level 60? At this rate, we won't even get to epic mount level before Cataclysm.

Anyway, here's this week's schedule:
  • Anne Stickney as Annephora, the troll warrior, will be on Tuesday at 1 a.m. EDT (which is Monday at 11 p.m. Zangarmarsh time)
  • Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock, Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock, Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage, Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can
Look for an announcement soon for the <It came from the Blog> Midsummer Fire Festival event.

Choose My Adventure: What to do?

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

We have our marching orders for where we are supposed to be questing for our level ranges, but there are many things to do with our time other than questing. Tell us how we should spend our Choose My Adventure sessions next week. The poll is after the break.

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

Choose My Adventure: Of kittens and oozelings

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

So. White Kitten for Robinemia and Disgusting Oozeling (when he can get it) for Selfloathius. Cute and vile. Hmmm. You do know Robinemia is Forsaken, right? Aren't you afraid she's going to consume the kitten as a snack? Anyone who enjoys chomping on humans and has no problem with poisoning dogs is not going to be above gnarfing on a small, fluffy animal. /shrug

Anyway, here's the schedule for this week:
  • Anne Stickney as Annephora, the troll warrior, will be on Tuesday at 1 a.m. EDT (which is Monday at 11 p.m. Zangarmarsh time)
  • Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock, Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock, Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage, Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can
Thank you so much, Withervein, for donating the kittie to the cause. I'll try to make sure she doesn't get gnawed on ... much.

Choose My Adventure: Pet polls

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

I'm still sulking over the loss of my bunny ears. Disappointed! Blah blah blah, here's the schedule:
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman; Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage; Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter; Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid; and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can.
The comment poll from last week was vanity pets, so I've put the polls up this week for the final results. There were really only enough choices for me and Selfloathius, however. So please suggest more WoW.com staff character/vanity pet matchups. Vote after the break.

Note: The above video is me showing off Grunty and The Spousal Unit's Zergling, with interjections from The Spawn.

Choose My Adventure: Raining on my silly parade

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

So it looks like I have to bank my bunny ears and default to my skelepony. That's OK; silly is more of an attitude than a fashion statement ... I guess. Actually, maybe I should switch my attitude to sulky now. /sniff

Look for some <It came from the Blog> fun on Tuesday, since it is not on the list of servers that will be down for a day.

Choose My Adventure: Stories and warrior advice

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

This week, we have advice for Annephora, who is pulling ahead in the leveling game, as well as stories from our favorite troll warrior and Foxlight, the shirtless pally. But first, here's our schedule for the rest of the week:

The Daily Quest: Me tanks


Here at WoW.com we're on a Daily Quest (which we try to do every day, honest) to bring you interesting, informative and entertaining WoW-related links from around the blogosphere. Is there a story out there we ought to link or a blog we should be following? Just leave us a comment and you may see it here tomorrow! Take a look at the links below, and be sure to check out our WoW Resources Guide for more WoW-related sites.

It's Monday, which means I'll be plunking around on a troll warrior this evening thanks to the Choose My Adventure program. Shamefully, while I've done plenty of questing, I haven't really done much in the way of instances or tanking. This is due to some deep-seated fear that I'm going to be the horrible tank that gets the healer killed by a runaway add, the obnoxious tank that lives by the philosophy "Continuously pull threat off of me and I will let your cloth-wearing hiney tank that mob" or just simple fear of complete and utter incompetence in general. Thankfully there's plenty out there in the WoW blogosphere regarding tanking:

Choose My Adventure: Andrenorton lives

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-H).

It looks like we'll be heading to Stranglethorn Vale by an overwhelming majority. As for Matthew Rossi's mage, you voted to have him keep it. Technically, there were more votes for other classes if you add them together. So I gave Matt the option of switching to druid (the winner of the other classes) or remaining a mage. He chose to keep Andrenorton.

The schedule changed a teeny bit since it's a holiday week.
  • Anne Stickney as Annephora, the troll warrior, will be on Tuesday at 1 a.m. EDT (which is Monday at 11 p.m. Zangarmarsh time)
  • Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, blood elf warlock: Tuesday, 11:30 p.m. EDT
  • Michael Sacco as Sahko, the orc warlock: Wednesday, 7 p.m. EDT
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the troll shaman, and Robin Torres as Robinemia, the undead mage: Wednesday, 11 p.m. EDT
  • Amy Schley as Patent, the troll rogue: Thursday, 10 p.m. EDT
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the troll mage, Michael Gray as Grayfields, the tauren hunter, Adam Holisky as Adammentat, the tauren druid, and Gregg Reece as Yakkowakko, the orc warlock, will be making appearances as they can
