The quests might be nice doing it the FIRST time, however got an alt? got more then 1? those quests might seem interesting at least the fist time you do them but the second, the third time? what about the forth time? then you get onto the fact that they still dont make you "feel" like you are changing anything. Sure the area will be nice - as expected with anything new but that can only sustain you for so long

On my first lvl 85 I quested and on my other two I levelled with 5 mans and PVP from 80+. Far quicker than questing alone.

I dont find that to be true. At all. Especially how fickle PVP is these days and the little XP gained. Questing, at later levels, is faster and gets gold quick.

Simply nothing beats questing if you know where to go and what to do from previous experiences. Every day queue for the daily dungeon that gives bonus xp > finish all dungeon-related quests for that dungeon > finish all quickly-obtainable quests for the zone. The levels pass by so quickly that only the first bunch of mass-quests in the hub need to be done, then you can move onto the next hub.

If you get lucky and lvling during the AV weekend bonus thing that is a GREAT way too lvl up as well as get honor for lvl 85gear (trade HP > JP) as you get SICK amounts of XP during it and if you win.

They had to nerf Deep Freeze damage back down halfway through this expansion because it was hitting vehicles too hard (that's right, DF got balanced around Strand of the goddamn Ancients), how do you think the PvE frostmages liked that?
It was an example of the separation of abilities in PvE and PvP. Yes it's a band-aid, a very old band-aid. Want proof? Ask a new player what Polymorph does and they'll respond "says right there, controls your target for 50 seconds." And then they find out that against enemy players it only lasts 8 seconds > 4 seconds > 2 seconds > Immune and think "wait what the hell just happened?". The tooltip mentioned NOTHING about the drastically reduced duration and NOTHING about diminishing returns. It's in fact completely incorrect. If you want the definition of "confusing", that's it right there. There is an absolute need for two tooltips. This should apply to every ability to make balancing easy for Blizzard because it ultimate boils down to numbers, that was my point.
I've been playing pretty much nothing but my mage since 2007 so I always try to come off with a "frost mages r OP lawlz" attitude to get on people's side, since everyone seems to hate mates these days (or re-rolled one). I know they're not as "godly" as people make them out to be, especially not in the higher brackets where DK's and Aff Locks become a major pain smile.gif

I understand your argument, especially about polymorph. But here is the tooltip from wowhead:

"Transforms the enemy into a pig, forcing it to wander around for up to 50 sec. While wandering, the pig cannot attack or cast spells but will regenerate very quickly. Any damage will transform the target back into its normal form. Only one target can be polymorphed at a time. Only works on Beasts, Humanoids and Critters."

I think key here is up to 50secs. One round of any battleground and a player will quickly realize that against players its not 50 seconds. But I do remember the first time I used poly. I was angry that it healed my target and though it to be a worthless spell. Heh. Those were the days.

Yes, frost mages are OP to certain classes. I hated them on my frost DK. Loved them on my fire mage. Hated them on my ele shaman. Loved them on my prot warrior (before the spell reflect nerf). Et cetera. The beauty of blizzard is they try very hard to balance. Its sad they are ruining this game with pandas and continue to charge a monthly subscription. No thanks, blizz.

post #230 of 240
I level these days doing a mixture of everything. Battlegrounds, dungeons, and questing. I just got done levelling my rogue to 85 and from 20 - 60 I barely did any questing at all. Mostly just PvP and dungeon my way to 60. 60 - 85 I did quest along with dungeons and battlegrounds to get gold and gear. It also helps a lot if you have heirlooms. 45% increase in XP with heirlooms and the guild buff.

Levelling in my opinion isn't as bad as it use to be.
