    Leveling Alts in Legion

    Just in case i missed something, is there a decent way of leveling Alts in Legion beside the tedious questing through all zones?

    I really like the story of the zones and the scaling-system overall - but doing it over and over and over again to get my alts to 110 is - as said - just tedious.
    Doing dungeonbrowser-dungeons doesnt give you that decent EXP anymore, grinding itself also isnt a thing in Legion.

    So the only way to level is to do the same zones over and over and over again.

    As much as i would get all my alts to max-level again, i lack in the motivation-department.
    Watching movies and streams while doing it sometimes is enough for a level or two, but i cant get myself to do this "in one sitting" like i did in WoD.
    I sometimes powered 2 alts from 80+ to maxlevel in a day..

    Is Legion just not as twink-friendly or am i just taking the "wrong approach"?

    Even if there was a faster way to get XP, you still have to do all the quests in every zone to progress your character.

    If i would aim to raid with them or progress them in any way, i would agree with you.

    But i only aim to get my alts up to get professions done, as most of them have level-requirements instead of profession-level requirements now.
    If i aim to get progress on each alt i can quest in each zone to get friendly, but only doing this doesnt get you to 110 sadly.

    Progression with professions is also slow and tedious. The good news is that we'll have less competition in all areas, bad news is that it'll take way longer to catch up.

    Most professions also require revered/exalted with 1 or more factions for recipes... they've made it really hard to have alt crafters this xpac.

    @morfraen yes they have, but like Sterling said, this makes it better for those who specialize in a profession. I've got to say that in the past I've sometimes felt like I was *required* to have alts with all professions. This time around, it feels like the game rewards me for playing my main character. Gives more of an RPG feeling. I like it.

    I'm just now starting to work on an alt (scribe/herbalist), and have found that it's important to open up world quests. She needs at least decent gear to run around and pick herbs efficiently - and world quests are a huge help with that. LFR is going to help too, now that that's available. World quests also have some nice materials rewards.

    I'm just chipping away at rep gradually via world quests. So far inscription seems to be requirement-light for leveling as compared to say, Alchemy. But we'll see. I found that by keeping rested experience maxed on the alt, the leveling-via-questing was pretty painless.

    @tedj agreed, I'm enjoying my main as well. It's a bit of a problem, since I have trouble switching to my alts.

    It seems everyone is rolling herbalism right now, but that comes at a cost. Once herbs come back down to earth, you're left with an empty slot that takes 1-2 months to rebuild.

    I am too trying to level my alts right now and there are a lot of changes compared to 4 years ago, it's like a complete new game. What I'm doing is just dungeon finder on the alts with the rested exp then cycle, will do the zone quests only on my main to experience legion.

    Thannks to this thread information I found out I won't have to put haste into maxing alt's professions due to exalted reputations requirements for recipes, no way I'm farming exalted on 4 alts and my main.

    Especially if you have to farm and invest alot of time and materials to even get - i didnt even thought about that tbh.

    - Dreamweavers for Enchanting and Leatherworking
    - Court of Farondis for Inscription and Tailoring
    - Highmountain Tribe for Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing
    - Wardens for Engineering and Inscription
    - Valarjar for Leatherworking and Blacksmithing
    - The Nightfallen for Enchanting and Tailoring

    If i look at this list, getting alts and their professions "ready" looks like a nightmare to me!
    Doing some world quest every now and then on my alts, sure i will - but getting all of them exalted to get the recipes?

    At least Jewelcrafting, Enchanting and Inscription should get the ranks from rep-factions to really make profit...
