Fixed guide to 1-12 leveling as undead

Greetings again. Here is my fixed guide to speed leveling undead starting zone.
Joana's Vanilla Guide or VanillaGuide Addon (which is just copied Joana's guide) represents TBC or WotLK patch content - some things are not correct there with 1.12 version of the game.

First of all check the Joana's (FuriusPaul) guide to 1-12: http://www.joanasworld.com/members/undead.htm

### Leveling 1-6 ###

-you can speed up this part by dying on purpose after killing spiders in the cave.

### Leveling 6-10 ###

-"Deaths in the Family" requires prequest "The haunted mills" (which requires level 7 a accept)
-"The Chill of Death" requires level 7 to accept
-after finishing 6-10 guide you should be a bit far from level 10 - You will probably have to kill about 20-30 random mobs
 to get it
-also a new trick: learn herbalism so You can see Glood/Doom Weed easily
-you can speed up this part by dying on purpose after killing murlocks (part 17 of Joana's Guide) or Devlin Agamand (explained in "Fixed 6-10")

### Leveling 10-12 and class quests ###

-there are few mistakes in routing caused by 6-10 mistakes
-you will probably get enought XP for level 12 without completing last part of "At War with the Scarlet Crusade" (anyways if you are not lvl 12 while finishing Tirisfal Glades route You can get few more bars with Thrall's RFC quest "Hidden enemies")
-if you are playing warrior you can complete lvl 10 class quest along with "The Family Crypt" for some bonus XP
-if you wanna go for RFC in "near future" You also should poke Varimathras for "The Power to Destroy..." quest

########## Fixed 1-6, 6-10 and 10-12 step by step ##########

Most of text is copied from Joana's Guide - don't kill me for that.

So I've been recently testing stuff like 1-12 and 12-19 leveling on new elysium servers and here's some facts (due to server launch tactics):
1. It is all depends of increased spawn rate for mobs/quest_objects (but in a few aspects quick respawns are not helping - example "Family" Crypt quest):
a) lets say "there is no increased respawn rate" - then Youtubers guide to explore up to lvl 4 is way better
b) lets say "there is" - then clicker wars begin

2. On elysium some objects has increased spawn rate (some doesn't)
a) pumpkins got about 30 sec resp (so with 5 ppl camping one spot pumpkin gathering took me about 20 min)
b) boxes for scavenging Darknell quest had no increased spawn rate (there was like 20 ppl moving around and playing clicker game) - this quest took me about 30 min
c) gloom weeds - I've seen one during whole route (I've been using herb track)
d) doom weeds - never finished gloomweeds on both fresh servers (the gloom weed quest provides about 200xp and doom weed about 400 - so if there's no inc. resp rate You can easily skip that)

3. So, the 3rd "problem" about this is lack of XP because You will probably have to join/create party for every miniboss or grinding quest (I mean like: Deaths in the Family or Graverobbers)
a) and because of that You gonna get less XP than is required for lvl 12
b) and because of "a" You will have to go for Orgri/Durotar quests (To get lvl 12 I had to do Hidden Enemies and Burning Shadows everytime I've finished all tirisfal 1-12 quests)
c) and because of "b" every 1-12 run took about about 5 hour 30 min (which is 1,5 hour more than on empty Kronos)
d) getting lvl 6 before pumpkins is pain (I was fresh lvl 5)
e) because of "d" I had to do The Chill of Death a bit later
f) anyways there was a lot of improvisation because of abcde

It's worth noting that if you're doing the starting area during a server launch or a time where there are lots of people around, you have to replace the "do every quest and skip as much walking time as possible" strategy with "just kill every mob you come across while trying to get as many quests done as possible" if you want to be fast.

I believe that server makers are going to implement fast respawn mechanism for starting zones at server launch, so this might be helpful.

That would be nice. Also faster spawning quest item containers. If those 2 things were in place, launch would be much more enjoyable. Having played on launch day of many servers, it really sucks just sitting and waiting around for stuff to spawn.

Unless everything respawns instantly or you're ahead of everyone there's simply no way you're getting all quests done without waiting periods during a server launch scenario.

During all launches I've seen digital dummies who refuse to tag mobs unless they're in one of their own quest chains. I still to this day do not know what's going through their heads. Key to getting through the starting zerg is just to have a plan on how you are going to do it, usually pretty easy albeit my computers 40sec loading times is driving me nuts at such times :)

If it is gated quest containers for quest chains, oh baby on a highway yes.

Leveling guides are much more about running and quest bulk efficiency than simply where to pick up and turn in quests. You pretty much can't devise an efficient questing route without a guide or extensive leveling experience and a great memory.
