now, a mean person would tell you that and leave it be, and if you happen to actually believe that statement, then stop reading this and go try it.
still reading? well, honestly, the statement above is compete hogwash and the reason you don't start out at level 60 is the simple fact that you don't know anything about your class. Blizzard wants you to level yourself up to 60 (well, 70 now) so you can learn your class, so you know what do do and when to do it. If you were to just hop to 60 you would miss the best content in the game, this coming from a level 64 warrior with experience tanking molten core and the head warrior officer of an 80 man guild, I can honestly say that the best moments in the game for me happened around levels 20-40, not 60+.
Enjoy your leveling experience, don't rush it. But I can give you some advise.
-Don't worry about having the best gear until you've reached the level 70, at lower levels anything you wear will be replaced within a few levels, so don't spend every penny you earn on new gear. Go to instances, and do quests, that's where the best gear is to be found.
-Stay away from the Auction House, unless your selling something. Don't spend all your money at the AH, the only excuse you should have for buying something there is
1) Its to further your crafting profession, or
2) your replacing something that's well over 10 levels old
-Read the manual
-Read the official world of warcraft forums, and ask questions
-Look for helpful guides if you ever get stuck, I suggest
for items and quest help
for helpful guides and FAQ's
and let me know if you have anymore questions.
although the older guild broke up due to all the expansion madness like many did, many of the officers (including myself) reformed under a new name with the same people.
we weren't the most progressed guild, we never did down nef, or get into nax or aq 40, but we had all of MC on farm in less than 3 1/2 weeks.
So please don't troll, Being the MT of a great guild such as mine, is great, I had my 8/8 might set, and half of thunderfurry made, although its still sitting in my bank in pieces, I still have 2 more legendary items than you do.
heres my allakasam profile, just check the quest log tab, I'm sure you'll see the "Thundairan the Windseeker" quest right at the top of the list.
