Yeah I had the same thing happen, only about 2 or 3 times and I'm level 53 now. I would just ask in general chat if there was anyone to help, and usually there was. The one time there wasn't, I just logged out and went for a walk. Came back, asked again, and there was someone to help me. Also can just skip and come back later. Not too many of these are super important chains IMO. The guide is crazy awesome. I've done a bunch of dungeons and random grinding so I'm actually 5 levels above where it says I should be but I'm still having zero issues and haven't had a quest turn grey yet! Best guide ever!

The Quest: Tremors of the Earth
The Problem: Similar to the one listed above, this quest has the prerequisite of the quest chain "Mirages -> Scrounging" but also has you doing "Scrounging" on the very same page. Which the pre req is needed before Garek will even talk to you about Tremors.
@donrick said in Leveling Guide: Save Progress?:
Hey, nice work. Even coming back to guide from bookmark isn't working for me... is taking me to select FACTION & GROUP SIZE from start, then START LEVELING is not taking me anywhere.
SAME! I have had that same problem for weeks, but I was able to get around it in an incognito window. Now, that isn't even working.
Whoever developed that tool, is there a cached value or cookie I can reset to get this thing working again???
@Rivz You could be getting lucky with drops and not getting extra EXP from the amount you're supposed to kill to complete a quest. The guide gives you EXP thresholds to grind to if you're not already at that threshold. If, even after following the EXP grind steps, you're still behind, then grind some more whenever you're supposed to be at a certain level. Like after a quest complete or quest turn in, you're supposed to ding and you're not dinged, then when you're currently questing or next out questing again, you could kill every mob you pass in between quests (instead of standing in one spot to grind). Do this until you're caught up, and if you ever fall behind again.
Me, I've been consistently at least a level and a half ahead of the guide since either the pre-10s or not long after level 10. At level 24 with 31% EXP, I've just started taking quests in Menethil Harbor, to start questing there for the first time, and guide thinks I should be level 23.
And I haven't been grinding as I travel.
RNG I guess.
IF changes must be made, then (in my opinion) this is the best solution: Increase the character cap so that you can have PvP/PvE alts. I've made one of every available class on Alliance and one bank alt, leaving me with 9 characters and room for one more class duplicate (or to make a Shaman all by himself with no bank alt or other supporting toons). More characters per server would let you still play more stuff as well as having alts for classes with multiple purposes like PvE vs PvP specs as well as roles in those types of gameplay.
You still commit to your characters and trying to change your commitment is still punishing, you just get more characters that you're allowed to commit to in order to experience more of Classic. More ability to roleplay, and so on. That seems to me to be the most in-vanilla change you could make unless you really really want to argue the case that also being limited to 10 characters is very integral to the Classic experience because of something-something scarcity.
