Question from someindianfreak
Why cant i get past lvl 55?
ive been stuck in the low 50's for 3weeks now! i quest daily. i do instances, i grind. nothing is working!!! why am i only lvl 54 after all that hard work? im questing and grinding in the right areas. all lvl 50-56s and i like to stay in the higher lvl areas but why am i lvling so slowly?
does my Demonology spec have anything to do with it?
im going to start leaving Ungoro crater at lvl 55 and start going deeper into the burning steppes and hopefully into outlands soon

don't grind, seriously, do quests instead, they'll boost your exp by MUCH more than just monster grinding

Leveling from 50-58 in my opinion is one of the toughest periods you will experience. Starting at level 50 I like to use this route
Felwood>Western Plaguelands>Winterspring>Eastern Plaguelands
Since the AQ patch I hear at higher level 50's (57-58) Silithus is a decent place to quest as well, although I havent personally tried it.
Just stick it out and strive for 58. Once you hit that go to outlands where its 150% easier to level.
Just keep grinding i suggest doing quest from eastern plague lands and also western plague lands. u will get a whole lot of killing and collection quests. thats all i did and it took me about a week of playing to got from 49-58.
(note that this is just an estimate of actual played time).
also leave your toon at an in when u are not playing just to get the double experience bar it helps alot when doing the quest in eastern and western plagued lands.
The way I always level 45-58 is like this.
47-49 Searing gorge/Hinterlands
49 - 52 Ungoro
52-53 Burning Steppes
55-58 EPL/Sillithus/random dungeon run
If you arent afraid to travel, its pretty quick.
Nowdays I ignore almost all of Northern Kalimdor, just seems to far away to be worth going to it. I normally hit up Ashzara ONCE for a toon's level 50 class quest chain that leads to ST, but then just ignore the whole northern hemisphere of the continent.
If you are level 55 now, I suggest running to Eastern Plagelands, running to the far western part of the map, near the river that splits EPL/WPL and getting Fordring's quests.
It is 3 "grind" quests. You need to kill a total of about 150 monsters to finish those 3. They can be found all over the zone and done while you are doing the other quests in the area. They offer great quest exp and chain into more quests.
If all else fails, Sillithus is PACKED with quests that you wont be interupted while doing. It's a dead zone. Just like before AQ was implemented... there is hardly anyone there.. ever. Unless its people leveling mining.
Also, to make it easier for you. Dont forget at level 57 you can buy outland greens off the AH. Makes for much faster leveling with just a few peices of it.
Grinding is rarely better than questing. Unless you are 1-2 bubbles from level and have to fly 30 minutes away to continue questing.
It's best when you can run in some grind quests and benifit from both methods.
Also demonology is def not your best bet for leveling.
Affliction is widley known as easy mode. With the VW buffs latley you should be able to dot up 3-4 mobs while he tanks them and you look for more to pull to him.
Dont get me wrong, Im a fan of demonology, its just not an optimal leveling build.
Sorry for the double post, wish we could edit >_<
