How to Start Playing WOW Classic and How to Level Up
As a beginner, you’d like leveling up fast and reaching as far as you can in the game. While leveling up in WOW Classic is slightly harder than in the online servers, but there are ways to speed up the process.
WOW Classic is full of quests. If you take advantage of rested XP, you can speed things along by killing a few monsters as you travel from one quest hub to another.
If you want to reach level 60 as fast as possible, choose a damage class that doesn’t rely on pets. This means that they don’t have tanking or healing specializations. Mages and rogues are good examples of these classes.
It is also important to realize that each profession in the game has its own level system as well. For the Horde profession, you should check out this guide!
So, do you want to play solo or group up?
If you have a group of friends and you all want to play together and you also want to reach level 60 fast, you could try and justify the reduced kill experience.
The weapon skills feature heavily in WOW Classic. As you’re leveling up a character, you’ll also be upgrading the skills and weapons. It’s preferred to choose a weapon that’s available for your class and specialization and sticking with it as you farm XP.
