Leveling up in WOW Classic allows for players to access more powerful spells and skills. What follows is a guide to level up a warlock character in WOW Classic.
Leveling Up Solo
Warlocks have many advantages to leveling up solo. The Warlock can summon Imps at level 1-10 and Voidwalkers after level 10. These familiars a perfect as tanks when fighting enemies. The Warlock can then focus on casting spells.
Also, being able to trade health for mana allows the warlock to make the best use of their skills and resources. Spells such as Life Tap and Drain Life are perfect for this approach.
Other classes have difficulty leveling up with a team. The point distribution in WOW Classic works to evenly spread points between players. This can slow down the leveling process. Warlocks are the best class for working with partners. Warlocks have the ability to regenerate mana without using downtime. When paired with a Paladin, Druid, or Shaman they are most effective. Their partner can cast healing on the Warlock. This allows for quicker recovery time and allowing the Warlock to cast spells.

Control spells such as Fear, Howl of Terror, Death Coil, Unending Breath, and Inferno are important. The best spells for dealing damage are Immolate, Corruption, and Curse of Agony. Life Tap and Drain Life, as mentioned above, are good for regaining mana.
Create Healthstone and Create Soulstone are also important skills for Warlocks. These are unique spells for Warlocks in WOW Classic that are useful when playing solo. When working in a group, the Ritual of Summoning is very useful to bring in members of their group. This is especially useful in dungeons, where Summonstones do not work.
Several professions can aid in leveling up as well. First Aid is important, as Warlocks are not self-healing in WOW Classic. To gain gold, learn Herbalism, Skinning, and Mining. Skinning and Enchanting allows players to create useful items for their own use or to trade.
