Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

As you march on to level 100, there is another leveling friendly zone…Spires of Arak.
Available at level 96, this Arakkoa lore heavy zone is teeming with tasty experience, and experience boosts.
By the second or so time you have done the leveling grind, you likely don’t need the popular Smuggling Run garrison output.
The Home Away From Home outpost perk is a nice 20 percent boost to your experience, which will go a long way in this zone.
With this bonus, plus the garrison xp potion, and optionally the xp elixir, you will find yourself at level 100 in mere hours.
You can also find 5 treasures called the Offering of the Raven Mother, that will give you around 5 percent rested experience boost.
With a trip around the zone picking up the remaining treasures, and running a few of the larger quest lines, you likely won’t even notice the grind.
I highly recommend running through the Pinchwhistle goblin questline; not only because of the easy experience, but the Scrapyard blueprint and the follower at the end.
Between Arak, and Gorgrond, getting to level 100 can be a decently quick and fun trip.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

The Draenor leveling experience has a little known early fast track zone….Gorgrond.
While it is very likely have leveled through this area, it is easy now to skip or quickly move through it as you race to 100.
There are however some rather beefy rare beasts that drop an XP filled quest item, something either a group or level 94 or higher solo player can handle.
8 in total, these quests can be saved up and turned in all at once, especially once you get your hands on an Accelerated Learning potion, or Rapid Mind elixir.
With the potion giving a 20 percent bonus, the elixir giving a huge 300 percent bonus, and a full set of heirloom leveling gear, you can level extremely fast.
With this setup and the 8 item quest turn in, it is pretty normal to get a full level worth of experience.
By preloading a number of the bonus events in the area as well, you can easily get another level in the process.
Gorgrond is an often overlooked area, full of meaty experience, and a standard part of my leveling experience.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

One of the alt benefits for those more fashion conscious players is often overlooked….transmog.
Having multiple characters that can run raids and dungeons will let you get around those pesky lockouts.
For those with garrisoned alts, having the salvage yard leveled up will get you all manner of interesting gear that you can spread around.
With the upcoming Legion expansion, you will want to have at least one of each armor typed alt in your personal alt army.
This will ensure you are able to save transmog unlocks now by spreading the gear around, no matter what armor type it might be.
As we prepare for the coming expansion, it is time to expand our wardrobes with all the transmog goodies we can get our hands on.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

For those that have more money than time to spend, we discuss…level boosts.
More and more MMOs are starting to include paid level boosts as a way of getting to new content, as the number of levels ever increases.
Warcraft in particular started this trend a while back by calling it the scroll of resurrection; a way for retired players to jump back into the game at level 80 and later at 85.
It was then revamped and turned into a way to boost any character to level 90, whether brand new or already established.
As of today, it has been upgraded to level 100, includes a full gear set, large bags, various flying licenses, and even a profession boost if the character was above 60.
While the ala-carte price of $60 is a bit steep for most, you do get a free boost when you purchase the next expansion, so everyone will get to try.
As eager as you may be to use this free boost, make sure you use it on a class you like, or you’ll suffer a bit of alt remorse.
