10 Quick Tips For Fast Leveling

Quick Tips For Fast Leveling

Leveling is a crucial part of the World of Warcraft because that is the first thing you must do in order to start using your character for the end game fun. However, this may prove to be a horrific experience as most people do not like leveling their character. There are numerous reasons for this:

  1. You may dislike leveling your character because it is extremely boring.
  2. You may hate leveling because you do not like to do something repetitive.
  3. It takes way too long to reach the level you want.

These are all valid reasons as to why you may dislike leveling. However, leveling is process that you must go through as a World of Warcraft player in order to be able to experience the end game content. If you are an aspiring player that wants to start getting into the end game content, you may wish to maximize your leveling speed.
Tips to maximize leveling speed:

  1. You want to have the least downtime possible. This means that you want to be able to level without having to pause in between each fight due to low health or mana. By doing this, you will be able to not lose anytime while leveling. Having to stop for water and food after every fight will become extremely tedious and annoying.
  2. Do not just grind. World of Warcraft was not meant for a massive grindfest. The fastest way to level is by doing all the quests that you can. However, this does not mean you should do all the quests because there are only some quests that are worth doing. You want to make sure you only do the quests that do not take a long time to do. These include killing a certain number of mobs, gathering an item from a mob, doing a quick task, or etc. You do not want to do anything that is time consuming; this rule applies especially to quests that require you to move around and search around for a long time. You will not be gaining experience or anything by doing this.
  3. If you are a character that does require some food and water, make sure that you are always stacked up on food and water. Nothing hurts more than seeing yourself at a normal sit rate recovery from low mana or health.
  4. Use the hearthstone wisely. Since your hearthstone has a 30 minute cooldown, you can use it strategically in order to help your leveling process.
  5. Group your quests. You do not want to waste time doing 1 quest and turn it in. You want to grab as many quests as possible, do all the quests that are clustered in one area, and you should move into the next zone after turning them in. In other words, quests will often be gathered into one area so you should do them all at once.
  6. Now with the new PVP experience, you may want to try doing PVP as well. This is only advised for levels 60 or above as anything else will give you low experience. Also, you want to make sure you only do AV as that will yield you the most experience. Only do the battleground experience if you are on a decent PVP group where your faction wins a lot or else it may hurt your leveling process.
  7. If you have another 5 bucks to spare and is leveling a low level account, you may want to invest 5 bucks into a recruit a friend account to quickly get your toon to level 60.
  8. Always research about your class and the fastest way to level using your class.
  9. Keep skills trained to the latest.
  10. Stay updated on gear. You do not need to have the latest gear, but do not be wearing armor that is 30 levels lower than you. They are not going to help at all.

These are some of the basic tips and rules you should follow if you are interested in getting your character to level 80 as fast as possible.

There is an insane amount of XP to be had in Alterac Valley BG starting at level 51. I leveled from 51 to 62 in just a few hours played. Basically, I could level with winning 3 bg’s…as you get closer to 60 you have to win more than that but not many. I don’t know if that XP has been altered since the latest patch or not though.

How do you figure a R-A-F account only costs 5 bucks? It’s around $20 for the base game and the first (“free”) month of play time.

Refer a friend only levels the new account not the older one, sorry you’re wrong.

If you factor in that you need to get a vanilla wow account 15€ + a 2 month gamecard 22€ will set you back a total of 37€ and gain you three months of gametime to level and a free month on your main account (-11€) + nifty epic mount so $5 isn’t realistic, but a total cost of 26€ isn’t that much and you can level up multiple alts with the grants your RAF account toon will have by lvl60. Also if you make sure that your alts are sitting at 99% of xp of what ever level they are before you begin grating levels you will be able to effectively grant upto lv61 on them. (the level granting mechanism just adds a flat +1 lvl to your toon and therefore if you do 25 level grants to lvl60 (wich is the cap for grants) your toon will actually end up at lvl60 with 99% of xp done regardless that at lvl25 your 99% of xp was maybe 2000xp and at lvl60 your 99% is 50000xp.

Just to concur with Criminâl: I think I picked up half of level 53 a couple of weeks ago being on the winning side of an AV. It is great until around level 60. After that, at least in my battlegroup, I find it a tedious slog and end up focusing on questing much more.

So $20 – $15 for free month = cost of $5

IIRC there was a brief period of time when you could purchase the base game at a special promo rate of $5. I hope that happens again – i’ll stock up on a couple to play around with RAF dual-boxing.

There’s a lot to be said for leveling through the dungeon finder. You’ll be awash in upgrades, both from boss drops and from the satchel, many players will share quests with the group, and the XP is very good. Additionally, it makes leveling as a Tailor or Enchanter much, much easier, as you’ll get a lot of mats for either of those professions.

Downsides? Well, since you’re not questing, you can chew through your rested XP very quickly. Some of the old world dungeons are VERY long, and even experienced players can get lost easily. Because you’ll have new players, this means drama from any number of sources can spring up (everything is hunter gear again!). If the quest you want to complete in the dungeon isn’t directly related to killing the boss who gives the satchel, many groups will simply skip it. Finally, if you’re leveling any sort of gathering/crafting profession, your skills will stagnate (with the exception of skinning, which has good and bad instances).

Outstanding tips, at first you are probably right leveling is a boring part of the game but the feeling after you reach your dream level is great:) Your post helps me a lot and it makes me change some of my strategy. This one is greatly appreciated.
