Level Faster in World of Warcraft

Marcus Ty

Many players new to World of Warcraft get frustrated in the early levels with their lack of progress in the game and want to level faster. Leveling faster in wow is not hard, but you need to develop a good game strategy that will increase your leveling speed and the rate that you acquire experience, without getting stuck in a boring circle of grinding. Follow these simple steps to powerlevel your character to level 60 and beyond.

Questing

The secret to leveling fast in World of Warcraft is to gain experience points (XPs) as efficiently as possible and this, friend, means grinding with a purpose - in other words questing. You'll not only gain experience from the kills the quest requires, but also as a reward upon completion of the quest. You'll also have the satisfaction of acquiring some additional loot or gear in the process. As a rule of thumb, if you grind as part of a quest you'll likely double the number of XPs you'll receive in a given amount of time. You have just learned how to increase you leveling speed by 100%!

Find a Tavern

When you first enter a new zone, head for the nearest town and find the tavern. Make it your home using your hearthstone. This will become your new base of operation to complete all the quests in the zone. Use the hearthstone to get back to the tavern after a heavy session of questing and grinding. This often saves you the time of a lengthy run across dangerous areas and can get you out of tricky situations at a pinch.

Get Rested

By always finishing back in a tavern will ensure your character will be rested when starting the next round of questing. Your character bar will turn blue. Rested characters receive a rested bonus of 50% experience from the kills they make. So, if you kill ten Kobolds as part of your quest and receive 1000 XPs for the kills, you'll receive an addition 500 XPs as part of the rested bonus. Already you are leveling 150% faster!

Quest Spirals

To gain XPs as efficiently as possible means completing as many quests in a given location as quickly as possible. It helps to collect a batch of quests in a tight location near the town and then spiral out from the location completing those quests in the process. Only then do you return to the town using the hearthstone and turn in your quests. This will save you bags of time and increase the speed at which you level.

Know Your Quests

You'll complete quests quicker and level faster if you have basic information about each quest before you set out from the tavern. Many quests just require you to kill 10 Kobold, for example, which are normally lurking nearby; but where do you find 'Chucky's Huge Ring'?
For those with some doe, a good guide will help. I give plenty of examples on my blog (see link below); alternatively, you can research the quest on the net, which is a little more time consuming, but helps. But the easiest and fastest way is to have an in-game addon that brings up details of quest in a game window thus saving you from having to break out of the game to look something up. See my blog for details.

Get Buffed

Nothing slows down leveling faster than dying! The long, ghostly run back to your corpse from the graveyard can be a real pain. So make sure you have plenty of potions, elixirs, sharpstones and bandages - especially if your character has a low armor class such as Mages, Warlocks and Priests.

Learn to Cook

Many players never learn the skill of Cooking. I blame the schools. But even as a Mage, learning to cook gives you a huge advantage when it comes to leveling faster. Advanced cooking skills allows you to make higher value food that restores health faster and adds a stamina buff in the process. Some foods will even restore Mana in the process. See my guide on cooking. Details are on my blog.

By following these simple tips and adopting a sensible strategy for questing, you'll find that leveling speed will greatly increase, allowing you to powerlevel your character to level 60 and beyond.
