As a prot warrior i started my toon about 1 week before this post, now throughout 1-10 i quested as i did from 10-15 with a little PvP (didn't win at all, poor XP for alot of work) once i hit 15 i followed the Prot path. Now as im sure most people know Tanks are the hardest to find when getting into the LFG system. At 15 i teamed up with my friend who had rolled a Pally Healer (he is very good), Using the same guild and heirlooms which gave us a total of 40% XP bonus we hit PUG instances running. Now to start off we were leveling like crazy. One hour im level 15 the next im 28. Within 5 days (1 day /played) we had hit outland. Now the DK had joined, Around level 58 to around i think 68 the DK tank now made the healer the hardest to find. Having my friend leveling with me allowed my que time to still remain within 1-5seconds. We charged through outland fairly fast and have now hit northrend, throughout outland we noted the XP rate in instances had dropped meaning our leveling slowed slightly. Now we have hit Northrend i noticed its dropped even more. Now questing from 68-70 is really easy due to the massive XP bonus compaired to outland. What i would like to know however is even with my amazing healer with which i can tank up to 3 groups (10 mobs) at a time should i now instead roll DPS and hit the questing root. im now level 70 with /2 days played. Im not interested in the leveling experiance anymore as i have a fair few level 80-85's what i am interested in is end game content and the fastest way i can get there. Should I quest or instance run?

Many thanks!

Competent instance runs are always the quickest way to level. Since you are a tank/healer pair there is zero chance of gettin*g a fail-PuG assuming that you both know what you are doing. As long as instances aren't taking longer than an hour you will progress much more quickly than via quests.

While i do agree that a skilled tank and healer are the base of a good instance run, having 3 retarded DPS can still make instances long and frustrating. But with good or decent DPS it should be a breeze. +Questing a bit, to gain access to tabards will help with gearing up through reputation awards. – Nayu (Jan 27 2011 5:19 AM)

Instances, if you can manage to clear them at a steady pace are definitely the way to go. But plan ahead, make sure you're running with an appropriate faction tabard to start gaining experience.

A good combination between questing and instances will result in a quicker geared character once you hit 85. Some of the quest rewards are an extremely good way to start your heroics, the plus side to them is that it is guaranteed that you'll get it opposed to a random dungeon drop.
