    Here is hoping for a choice of either Following suite with my wrath leveling I would like to do both starter areas first so by the time I hit 85 there is still plenty of higher level zones open for earning gold. I always enjoying having a couple zones left to do at level cap since you get LOTS of starter money that way.

    You will have both option as we are covering all the 80-85 zones.

    I find Vash'irj slightly slower initial since the Map is massive and you're forced to swim around at 60% speed. While in Hyjal you can benefit with the speed of your 310% mount straight away.

    it is also possible to begin at level 78 however you may need to grind a bit of XP in dungeons as most of the quest require level 80 or switch between the 2 zones and complete all the level 78 quests.

    My choice for speeding through the guide would be Hyjal but Vash have a more epic feel to it

    so the entrance quest for hyjal starts in SW too or can I park my toon at winterspring to enter hyjal right after release? heard that the entrance to hyjal is at that area but i may be wrong.

    Both Zones will begin at Stormwind / Orgrimmar, you will automatically receive a quest the moment you enter Stormwind / Orgrimmar.

    Mount Hyjal: You will be sent to talk to Druid in Stormwind City / Orgrimmar which will port you to Moonglade and from Moonglade you get Dragon Ride for a little bit of Cinematic.

    Vashj'ir: You will be sent to Stormwind Harbor and a boat will arrive take you to Vashj'ir. For Horde you will be sent to a new harbor North East of Durotar to take you Vashj'ir.

    There are also handy portals for both zone from Stormwind / Orgrimmar.

    Also Flight Trainers for flying in Azeroth for Flight Master's License can be found in Stormwind and Orgrimmar flight path area. It will cost around 250g,


    and 310% flying speed or Master Riding can be purchased for 5000g.. both can be discounted by 20% if you're exalted to the city faction I think so raise your reputation for some savings.

    got the 310% flighin already. just just need to buy the other flighing license at the trainer. better do that before i get the port to moonglade.
    by bein able to fly around in the hyjal, wont i miss alot of xp by flying from questgiver to "quest spot" instead of walkin and killin mobs on my way to the spots?

    1-60 is subject to change still, 80-85 solo questing is as it should be.. (not sure about dungeon xp/hour gain), so its relatively fast. I think they are also making 70-80 a little faster aswell to make it less grindy.
    With the release of patch 4.0.3a the percent of xp to get from 70-79 is reduced by 20%.
