Leveling using a WoW guide is a very smart thing to do. Since World of Warcraft is a pretty old game, players now like to focus on the end game content. This is because it is always fresh and there a lot of things you can do there.
But getting to the level cap can take a while. It is true that leveling guides help players do this much quicker, but I will assume that the people who read this, don’t have a WoW guide…yet. Here are a few tips that will help anyone level up faster. I picked up these while leveling several characters, with and without WoW guides.
- Don’t waste the money you make from doing quests. Hold on to them as you will need gold to buy flying mounts. These are extremely important to have as they make things go a lot faster.
- The only thing you should buy from the Auction House are weapons. Always look for blue weapons that cost less than 200g and have better DPS and stats than your current one. The quest rewards will suffice for everything else.
- Avoid doing quests that take too much of your time. There are quests where you have to loot a few items that have very low drop rates. The mobs carrying them are also scarce, so you will waste a lot of time on those.
- Don’t hang around in an area where you know the quests are bad. There are plenty of alternatives to every zone in the game. You don’t have to do a quest chain that sends you in all sorts of difficult places and give you small amounts of XP.
- How you spec your character is very important. As you level up in areas prior to the Cataclysm ones, go for the DPS spec of your character. Once you reach level 80 and start Cataclysm, go for the tanking spec if available. The mobs there are very strong and you will have a hard time surviving battles.
Keep these tips in mind no matter if you use a WoW guide or not and you will see that you WILL level up faster. The smallest shortcuts can make really big differences on your over all leveling time.
If you are not using a leveling guide, than it’s about time you started using one. The best way to level up in the game and do everything else is with a good WoW guide.
