What is the quickest way to get to level 85?

New Player Help and Guides
For about the past five days now, I've been working on this character trying to get him to level 85. I want to get him there so I can start twinking with my other characters and simply to enjoy the experience of having a level 85 character. So, all that being said, what is the best and quickest way to get to level 85 while still having a social life and seven to eight hours of sleep a night? I might also add that I'm still in highschool and I have to wake up at 5:30 every weekday. Sucks a$$...
Just run dungeons and quest. That's all there is to it. It really doesn't take that long to get high level, even if you play casually.

I'm not sure if you know this though the max level is now 90 not 85.
Is this your first/highest level character Bilbo?

It looks like you've been going out of your way to get gear...
..don't worry so much about having the best items you can get, you should be quickly outleveling them.
Your statstics show that you spend a LOT of your time in dungeons.. this is probably slowing you down.

At 41 I'd be heading out to Western Plaguelands.
..keep in mind that unlocking sections of the map also awards xp, so If you decide to ride there, zig-zagging your way along either side of the roads to unlock sections of map will give you xp along the way.

..i'm not so sure about questing as prot though
[HANDBALL]-> passes it over to someone else.
Best advice, really, and this is coming from an alt-aholic. Forget the other toons until you reach your goal with the one you want to get to 85.

Pre-68 - queue for dungeons and quest in between. At 68, hit NR and do the same thing. Less XP from dungeons (not as long) but queue times are long enough to quest comfortably.

At 80, Quest through, queue when you want for dungeons, however the XP return from Cata dungeons really isnt worth the time spent in them.
