The Fastest Way To Level Up In World Of Warcraft Classic

For many, World of Warcraft Classic is a nostalgic walk down memory lane; for others, it can feel like a non-stop grind fest. This is especially true if you're accustomed to the improvements and pacing of Blizzard's modern offering.


Unless you're a hardcore player who plans to sacrifice their sleep and social life to the World of Warcraft gods, expect to spend weeks, if not months, working your way up to level 60. For those itching to reach the endgame content, it's not all bad news. There are methods you can use to ensure you spend your time in the most efficient way possible.

First, rather than trying to decipher quest locations and objectives on your own, consider using a leveling add-on. These handy tools, such as the Azeroth Auto Pilot – Classic, eliminate the uncertainty and backtracking by telling you exactly where you need to go and what to do to complete quests, getting you to the finish line much faster than you would arrive on your own.


When questing, try to stick to your faction-specific zones as much as possible. These areas tend to have less traffic, which means less waiting for enemies to spawn. If you're playing on a PvP server, you'll also be less likely to run into other players. The less time you spend dead or fighting for survival, the more time you have to complete quests. To truly maximize your experience, avoid PvP entirely and take advantage of the safety offered by the PvE servers to level up undisturbed.

The grind can often get monotonous and soul-crushing. Make sure you break up your questing by clearing out dungeons. These areas are great for boosting your experience points and have the added benefit of forcing you to interact and collaborate with other players. Recruit some friends or randoms of a similar level and pay a visit to your faction's dungeons as they become available.

Leveling in World of Warcraft Classic is a marathon, not a sprint, but by using add-ons and taking the most efficient path forward, you can significantly reduce the time you spend grinding through quests.
