Power Leveling up plays a huge part in Classic WoW, and aside from WoW Classic gold farming, it is one of the most time-consuming aspects of the hot game. This can be a source of frustration for players, and though the title is crafted for those willing to put the hours in that ventures into the realms of hundreds of hours, there are a few ways in which you can level yourself up to make things a bit easier and quicker. This nifty guide will give you a few hints and tips on how you can reach the desired heights in a shorter period.
Choose Your Targets Wisely
Firstly, you will want to make sure that you are focused on the right targets which can help you level up quicker. In the early stages, players have the benefit of garnering the same amount of experience from less threatening enemies as they would from those who could possibly inflict more damage early on.
With that in mind, it would be more prudent to spend your time attacking whelps and other low-level foes to gain the same XP as you would from other more daunting adversaries. By taking this strategy, you will find yourself leveling up not only faster, but also with less chance of taking high amounts of damage where it isn’t entirely necessary.
Increase Your Speed
The primary concept of World of Warcraft is without a doubt exploration. Classic WoW will see you venturing out into an open world on several adventures for glory, and leveling up faster can come into play here, especially by finding ways for you to move faster.
To do just that, there are enchantments available in the early stages of the game, such as Minor Speed which can do exactly as the name suggests; it can increase your speed to help you reach your objective faster. Perhaps more importantly, you will be able to purchase mounts for your character upon reaching a high enough level. This is definitely a game-changer when it comes to grinding at an accelerated rate as they give you around a 60% boost in movement speed. What’s more, items such as Carrot on a Stick can help your mount move even faster, which is exactly what we are looking for here.
Grind on the Go
While we’re on the subject of movement, those skilled enough can take advantage of a technique that will allow you to grind while on the go. When out in the open world, attacking enemies while moving and jumping doesn’t just stop you from being attacked by the opponent that you are engaged with, but it also doesn’t take away the output damage that you inflict.
This way, you can make significant progress by dishing outthe same amount of damage while also being able to stay out of harm’s way. A bit of a no brainer really, but it’s something that can take a bit of practice, and can be particularly useful if you have a dual-handed weapon for that extra bit of damage output.
So far, we have discussed how you can navigate your way through WoW at a quicker pace, but you don’t just need to act fast when it comes to leveling up, you also need to play smart.
One way you can do this is by finding a Quest Tracker. This does exactly as described, and will help you locate the available quests around you, rather than wandering around aimlessly. Completing quests is a standard yet effective way of racking up experience, and knowing exactly where you are going is half the battle! Without a Quest Tracker, your journey will be far more time-consuming than it needs to be, so be sure to keep an eye out for it.
Explore – Don’t Head Straight For The Capital
Finally, try and avoid the same trap that a lot of WoW Classic players fall into. Many set down their Hearthstone in the capital cities so they can teleport straight there. As tempting as it might sound, surrounding areas are rife for exploration and often prove beneficial to the leveling process. What’s more, Mage class players can also use the teleport stone when required, so there are other places where your Hearthstone can be of value.
There is also the temptation to head straight to the capital once you have leveled up. However, you learn new skills for every two levels that you hit, so it might be a better use of your time if you head there when you hit each second level since the new skills have to be learned anyway. Besides, you can take care of any other business you need to tend to, such as spending your hard-earned Classic WoW Gold, while doing so.
