those tips are for power leveling only. I followed them with my first character (every time) and on the alts i took it slow and enjoyed the stories behind the quests (that in most cases i hadnt paid attention while leveling the main).
ok so, i know im a bit late to this party, but i had to register to disagree. (if you have TBC)Screw Barrens. entirely. the people suck and i dont honestly think anyone should ahve to deal with the drop rates of Raptor heads... i mean seriously, whats a raptor with out a head.
Instead, do yourself a favor, head over to silvermoon at 11 or 12 and head to the Ghostlands. The quest were added after a much needed inprovment on questing, after seeing how horrile the Barrens were. the quests are much more streamlined and dont require so much patience. of which i dont have for the barrens anymore. I've done it about 7 times too many. litterally.
