Let me start by saying me and a friend played WoW from release day to s6 of WoTLK. We went from completely awful players to seasoned veterans who made Gladiator 3 seasons in a row.
As time went on we did worse and worse things
-Botted battlegrounds (we both agreed level / farm botting is absolutely horrible, though)
2ish years later we're picking the game back up as we both have stable jobs and are out of schooling... We've decided to do the following.
1: Level WHATEVER class / race we want. No reading strategies or arenajunkies or following PvP blogs. Level WHAT YOU WANT.
2: Level PROFESSIONS as you go, take your time through leveling to enjoy areas and read quests. NO GRINDING.
3: No outside help. No reading guides or quest addons.. no "Help from china" be it gold, accounts or leveling.
So far we've been playing 2 days and loving it. I'm a Tauren Druid (I always liked moonkins but gave up back in vanilla on them) and he is leveling a Blood Elf paladin.. I suggest you guys try it, so far we're re-discovering that noobie fun we used to have... ESPECIALLY with the new questing areas.
Bonus points if you roll on an RP server which tends to offer a bit more fun in the leveling experience IMO.
