I am totally in agreement with you. The other day i was playing and i thought to myself you know i would really like to have a max level shaman. Then i thought wow i really don't wanna level a character to max it takes soooooo long.
This is probably the main reason i use guides to help me do what it is I want to do in WoW. As I have mentioned in previous articles I do not get to spend a whole lot of time playing but it is still a game I enjoy.
This amazing guide helped me get my shaman to max level in just 4 and a half days of game play time. I am sure it can work for you.
