When Kraken Latte posted this video, I was curious. There are plenty of videos out there touting the “fastest leveling route”, but many of them use cute little mechanic manipulations like taking advantage of Chromie time with a separate, low-level account. But this video was just straight-up solo leveling, picking good routes and sound strategies. I’ve used the advice from this video three times to get alts leveled up, and I was ready to just throw money at the problem rather than spend time leveling MORE characters! Instead, three more alts. Painless.
Honestly, I’m posting this on my blog so I can find it easier in case I need to level another alt. Hopefully, you can get some use out of it as well.
Yes, I still play World of Warcraft. It’s a mindless time sink for me. I’m what you’d call a “Filthy Casual.”
Well, I’m sure YOU wouldn’t call me that. You’re classy, and above that sort of thing.
That being said, I find it necessary to find resources to explain to me just what the Hell is changing with new game patches. Websites blather on and on, telling but not explaining. I’m certainly not going on social media
to find out what is going on because that’s where people are, and people are terrible (not YOU of course. Again, you’re classy like that.)
But then where does one go for information without having to deal with people? TO THE YOUTUBES!
Dalaran Gaming came through with a good video explaining the quality of life things for those who might be trying to level a character through Shadowlands in Patch 9.1.5.
I was aware of some things (heirloom gear upgrades), but not of other (Torghast is actually useful for something? Really?)
So check out the video from Dalaran Gaming. I hope you learn something. I know I did… classy.
Well here we are. The World (of Warcraft) has changed once again. Shadowlands is coming… eventually. But in the meantime, we as players can take this time to adapt to Patch 9.0. This means changes to class skills, talents, and dealing with the level squish from 120 to 50.
With the squish comes certain benefits. This might not be a bad time to level up some alts. By all accounts, leveling now is much quicker than before. Bellular (@BellularGaming on Twitter) over at Bellular Gaming cranked out this video to explain just what the Hell happened, how the Hell to level, and where the Hell to do it.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to leveling a few more alts.
With the 100% XP bonus being extended, now is the time to level up those alts. And, like an idiot, I decided that maybe I’d like to unlock the Mag’har Orc Heritage Armor, so I started a DK and decided to give it a go. Well thanks to the video below by FezzikGG, I went from 58-62 in about 45 minutes using a route I’d never taken before. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to stomach leveling yet ANOTHER character, but until I hit that wall and come to my senses I’ll see how far FezzikGG can take me.
Earlier this week, Blizzard announced that they would be introducing a 100% XP bonus in World of Warcraft. I hadn’t logged into the game for weeks and, honestly, still had little desire to do so. But being between RPG sessions, and being on COVID lockdown, I thought I’d give the game a try once again. Even if it was just to toss some Hexweave Bags onto the AH for easy gold.
First, Hexweave Bags have tanked. I make more money on the barns used to produce the furs to turn to cloth to MAKE the damn bags. So, fun.
Second, I had moved some alts around which gave me fewer 120 alts to run the 2000gp World Quests on. Maybe I would grudgingly take advantage of the XP boost to get at least one leveled up and geared to run World Quests.
Sure, the leveling part is… leveling. But is there a quick way to get reasonably geared once you reach 120? Kelani produced this great video which dives into that very question. So check it out won’t you?
