Cataclysm Leveling Guides 1-85

Jame's picture

All the guides on wow-pro are FREE, there is no trick, they are just free and will remain free. Enjoy and please contribute!

Click here to access the 1-85 Leveling Guides links


Here's how to enjoy the guides as much as possible, even if you don't have a 2nd monitor, you can either:

1. Print the guides. There is a "Printer Friendly Version" link at the bottom of every guide, you just have to click on it. However, that might be expansive (and probably expensive), because the guides are big, very big. Another downside is that my guides are updated very frequently, so if you print it you'll miss the latest updates.

2. Playing WOW in Windowed Mode feels very comfortable while following along with this guide.

  • Keep the guide opened in an internet window
  • Log in to World of Warcraft, press Escape and go to Video Options, tick the following boxes:

Click on "Apply".

Your screen will look exactly as if you were playing wow in full screen mode, besides you will be able to ALT-TAB to the guide INSTANTLY.

This is how I play wow while following my guide, when I don't feel like booting up my 2nd computer Smiling

3. If you don't like any of those options, then you should definitely try our in-game addon version of our leveling guides. Simply click the link below:

Becoming a part of WoW-Pro

Question- Your guides really helped me out and I want to return the favor, what can I do to help?

Answer- Here's how you can contribute:

1. Most important and easiest way to help: Spread the word. Tell people about our guides. Your friends, guildmates, boards you visit. Tell them that they are FREE and that they make you level much faster than other guides or questhelper.

2. When you try our guides, if you find any mistakes, leave a comment.

3. Post useful comments here. When people ask for advices and you know the answer, go for it and help them out. The goal of this community is to make this website the best place to find information and help about wow.

4. And then of course, you can write a guide about an area of the game where you're good. Check my Guide writing guide before you start, it should cover most points Smiling

5. You can also translate guides into other languages, if you are fluent in another laguage. Check our Guides in Other Languages section to see what has already been translated.

6. If you're rich in RL, feel free to donate!


I would love to be a guide

I would love to be a guide tester. I am a long time wow-pro user, and am currently leveling up my fourth toon using your guides. I'll test anything, but I would need a beta key, if that's alright.

Jame may not have many (if any) beta keys to hand out. So make sure you "opt in" from your account page! That way you have a chance of getting one on your own. Of course, we can only hope we'll get a bunch of keys to give to our active community members!

Thanks so much for your

Thanks so much for your help. I didn't even know of the option of opt in, I thought you had to attend Blizzcon or something like that!

You know you have my

You know you have my support, Jame Smiling I would love to work on Goblin starting guides, in particular. I plan to make a spunky little goblin shaman named Gaaki!'s picture

I would like to do both

Although i have not written any guides before i have been playing WoW and using wow-pro guides for 2+ years,i have used the guides on here to lvl two 80's and 4 60's, so i understand how to make the guides fairly well, i also play WoW about 2-5 hours a day and would be more then happy using that time to test/write any guides

when you relize that life is just a joke, being the comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

I was wondering...

I was wondering if I can do both Guide Writing & Guide Testing.

I want to write the Worgen starting guide. And test it & test some other ones.

I have time thru June thru August sometimes between Sept until the release date.

I've been using your guides for my toons. Especially Jame's Leveling Guides I found this site on Google when WotLK was released. I never really joined until last week.

And I'm a big fan of Wow-pro and Jame's guides. So let me know if you choose me to write the Worgen Leveling Guide.

I'd really like to help with

I'd really like to help with this, as I've been a big fan for a really long time. I haven't written any guides, but I do have 4+ years of WoW experience. Another thing, I will have a lot of free time between June and August, if this is when the beta will take place (no college). So I could probably help with guide writing, and I could definitely help with guide testing, addon or written. I could also write other guides for the wow-pro community before then, to see if I can really take place in the guide writing part.
Thanks, and let me know when it starts!

I doubt i would be any help

I doubt i would be any help for the writing but i could certainly help test if i can.

me too.

Guide Tester

Hello Jame, please put me in the list as Add-on Guide Tester, I'll be very glad to help. Eye

Tester for the leveling guide.


I got the beta access and would love to run from 80 to 85 as many times as I can with the guide to make it smooth and flawless for the release.

Guide Tester

I also have the beta and would like to be a guide tester.
