In World of Warcraft Classic, players have the choice of two main factions. They can play as either a member of the Horde or the Alliance. Both sides have their advantages and disadvantages that can affect gameplay.
What follows is a guide for players who chose to join the dark side of the Horde. Here are some tips that will allow for effective leveling up and enjoyable gameplay.
Rare Races = Faster Leveling-Up
Choosing a race for a new character in WOW Classic is an important choice. For many players, the first instinct is to choose a human for Alliance characters and an orc for the Horde. This choice can work to a player’s disadvantage. They may find themselves crowded with similar players in-game after the same goal. Instead, the player can cut down on the competition by choosing a character such as an Undead.
Home Sweet Home
Choosing the players’ race determines where they will spawn in the game. For instance, orc and troll characters spawn deep in Horde territory of the Barrens. As the player works their way through initial quests, they will explore more of the area. This initial period present initial leveling opportunities.
The most important thing when starting the game is to get away from the start zones as fast as possible. These areas become crowded with other players. This crowding lowers the opportunity to gain points.
Questing In Horde Territory
In WOW Classic there are several quests that are only available to Horde players. There are specific Quest Zones available for Horde players. These zones include Durotar, Tirisfal Glades, Mulgore, and the Barrens.
Quests are also found in neutral zones throughout the game. These are playable to Horde or Alliance players. Quest zones are available based on the character’s levels. Lower level quest zones are closer to the home territory. Higher areas are available as the player advances.
Also, most of the time in-game is traveling. As a result, players should look for opportunities to level up as they go. As the player encounters opponents on their travels, killing them allows the chance to level up on the go. Chaining a mob of opponents to fight at once also breaks the monotony of long travel time.
Two Can Play. Or Not…
Instinctively, players may choose to team up with other players. Yet, it may work as a disadvantage when it comes to leveling up. Having a partner may feel like a good move to increase your chances of success. When rewarding the players the disadvantages are clear. WOW Classic does not reward players the full points. Instead the game halves the total between both players.
If the player wishes a quick route to leveling up they should go solo as much as possible. While some battles may be more difficult, the rewards will be much greater. If a player still wishes to team up with a friend, avoid joining a large group for quests. The points divide even further, resulting in little reward for all the hard work.
