Instant Level 90 Shaman, Just Add Warlords Of Draenor

A couple of week's back I laid out my plan to prepare for World of Warcraft's upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion — get my new Draenei shaman to level 60, and then use the free boost to 90. Watch me get 30 levels in 30 seconds.

Prachok the shaman hit level 60 about a week ago, actually, but I didn't have the upgrade for next week's expansion yet, so I couldn't boost him immediately. In the meantime I've been playing with a gnome monk, the most ridiculously fun class/race combination ever. I was tempted to apply the boost to her instead, but decided to stick to the plan.

Here's a look at Prachok before the boost:

And here's a video showing me boost from 60 to 90 with a few simple mouse clicks and a short mouth harp solo.

The primary benefit of boosting from level 60 to 90 was that I was suddenly in the Blasted Lands instead of in close proximity to Goldshire, which on my server of Moon Guard is no place for anyone dressed in clothes to be.

My skills and spells were paired down in order to re-learned them while questing in the Blasted Lands, but once I left the zone and came back all were restored. Suddenly I had all of the flying skills, as well as the Warlords of Draenor collector mount to use them with.

As for a tutorial explaining how to use my newly powered-up character, I consulted the videos at the World of Warcraft website, which indicated that I should just be doing the same basic spell rotation I'd used at level 60 — Flame Shock, Lava Burst, Lightning Bolt while waiting for cool-downs.

Now I've just got to figure out my talents and glyphs, and I'm ready for levels 90-100, coming next week in the Warlords of Draenor expansion pack.

    If your speced into Elemental (sounds like you are) there's a lvl 90 talent which gives you another powerful spell in your rotation. (call of elements i think its called, i don't play Shammy my GF does.)

      Elemental Blast.. I personally don't use it but it's supposed to be good

        if your elemental you must use it.. its part of the rotation on bossfights ( provided you you and your group dont out gear the encounter but 100 ilvl points)

          Bossfights? Like killing Vanndar Stormpike?

          No talent "must" be used.. they are all around the same dps output

    This paragraph makes this article, I've spent some time, with trepidation I might add, on moonguard, mostly for the amusement factor involved and yeh, lions pride inn is a clothes optional sort of place

      i remember blizzard actually had to go and clean up that area on moonguard and some other servers just because it was forcing new players away from the game.

    Welcome to Shaman @ 90, which is what I've been playing, and then discovered my disgarded Death Knight from Wrath, much more entertaining atm.

    Did pretty much the same thing, leveled a warrior to 60, boosted with two profs to max in prep for wod, although this was a couple of days after the wod pre-order.

    Also, dunno if this was just me, but the video quality reminded me of the old hobbs videos. (as in it was pretty terrible even at 720p

    Truly hope you got your professions before boosting.

    I spent my boost on a shammy, which I immediately regretting doing. I hadn't hit 90 with it yet because I don't enjoy playing them. Being 90 all of a sudden didn't do anything to improve that.

    I fully expect the same experience would be true of Druids, Warlocks, or Warriors, were I to boost one. Because god knows the only reason I don't have max alts for them either is I can't stand playing them.

    DK, Pally, Priest, Mage, Rogue, Hunter, perfectly OK!

    have a rogue, and mage at 90
    boosted a pally to 90
    and brought up my druid to 90

    i really enjoy the pally for tanking, druid for healing, rogue for pvp and mage for raid dps...
    its a mixed bag... went 1-90 with the pally though, didn't want to waste time leveling to 60
