Leveling 50 to 60 in World of Warcraft – Fast!

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.

Who is The Jailer?

The Jailer – The BBEG of the Shadowlands Expansion for World of Warcraft. This guy is powerful. Evil. Corrupted. Coming soon (?) to a raid near you.

But who is he really? Bellular Gaming took all the available lore and crammed it all into one handy video. Who is The Jailer? What does he want?

WoW Leveling Pre-Shadowlands

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.

Hell no.

Enter the Shadowlands


I have seen beyond the bounds of infinity and drawn down daemons from the stars. . . . I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and madness. . . .

This year at Blizzcon 2019, Blizzard announced the next expansion for World of Warcraft – Shadowlands, coming sometime in 2020. Given the number of features they’re still working on, estimating a release date of December 2020 is not out of the realm of possibilities.

After watching the cinematic, I bought the preorder. Yes, it was that good.
