UNLIKE MANY PC BASED GAMES, WORLD OF WARCRAFT PROMOTES SOCIAL INTERACTION BY INCREASING THE DIFFICULTY OF QUESTS AND WORLD ZONES AS CHARACTERS GAIN LEVEL. THE END GAME CONTENT CANNOT BE COMPLETED BY A SINGLE PLAYER AND REQUIRES AT LEAST A GROUP AND IN MOST CASES AN ENTIRE GUILD TO SUCCEED.

IT IS LEE’S GOAL IS TO ASSIST OTHER PLAYERS IN ATTAINING MAXIMUM LEVEL, THE BEST EQUIPMENT, LARGE CASH RESERVES, AND ADVANCED GAMING KNOWLEDGE, ALL IN A 100% LEGAL MANNER.


THE GAME AND ITS ELEMENTS SO ONCE YOU HAVE CHOSEN YOUR FACTION AND RACE THE NEXT CONUNDRUM IS WHAT CLASS TO BE: DRUID, HUNTER, MAGE, PALADIN, PRIEST, ROGUE, SHAMAN, WARLOCK AND WARRIOR. FOR A BEGINNER I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND A RANGED HERO, AS ATTACKING FROM DISTANCE IS AN EASY OPTION AND ALLOWS ONE TIME TO EASE INTO THE GAME WHILST GETTING USED TO ALL IT HAS TO OFFER.

I DEFINITELY SUGGEST THAT A WARRIOR IS NOT A GOOD CHOICE FOR A BEGINNER, UNLESS YOU INTEND TO PLAY IN A GROUP WITH FRIENDS, IN WHICH CASE IT IS A FINE CHOICE. PEOPLE PLAYING THE GAME OFTEN HAVE PREFERENCES FOR CERTAIN RACIAL FEATURES AND MATCHING THEM UP TO THE CLASS THEY CHOOSE. TO EXPLAIN WHAT I MEAN MORE CLEARLY...IT IS BELIEVED THAT A NIGHT ELF DEATH KNIGHT IS A MORE POWERFUL CHOICE THAN SAY A DWARF DK. HOWEVER THERE IS USUALLY A LOT OF DEBATE ABOUT THESE CHOICES AND A LOT OF IT IS DOWN TO PERSONAL PREFERENCE.

WELL, ONCE YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH ALL OF THAT DECISION MAKING YOU CAN START TO PLAY THE GAME, PHEW! OH, WAIT A MINUTE I FORGOT ABOUT THE REALM (SERVER) YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY ON. THERE ARE LOTS OF PROS AND CONS ABOUT WHAT YOU DO CHOOSE, BUT DO NOT CHOOSE A PVP (PLAYER V PLAYER) REALM BECAUSE YOU REALLY DO NOT WANT TO BE ATTACKED BY ANOTHER PLAYER WHEN YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A QUEST.

Tips to level faster WOW LEVELING GUIDE

ON AVERAGE, TYPICAL WOW PLAYER IN AMERICA SPENDS ALMOST 33 HOURS A WEEK PLAYING THE GAME. WHAT PART OF THAT YOU THINK IS ACTUALLY SPENT ON LEVELING THEIR TOONS? ON DEVELOPING THEM SO THEY CAN LEVEL EVEN FASTER? ARE THEY USING THE BEST WOW LEVELING GUIDE THERE IS? I DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION. HOWEVER, IF YOU THINK IT TAKES YOU TOO LONG TO REACH THE HIGHEST LEVELS, YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU SPEND THOSE HOURS EFFICIENTLY. IN THIS SHORT AND TO THE POINT WOW LEVELING GUIDE,WE

2 CRUCIAL WAYS FOR FAST & EASY LEVELING

WILL DISCUSS TWO CORE WAYS THAT ARE CRUCIAL TO FAST LEVELING.

POSSIBLE WAY. FOLLOWING ARE THE BEST TIPS ON QUESTING.

FIRST ONE IS QUESTING WHICH NOWADAYS IS WIDELY POPULAR FOR GAINING EXPERIENCE. THE SECOND ONE WE ARE GOING TO DISCUSS IS GRINDING. THAT’S RIGHT. I KNOW IT’S AWFULLY BORING, BUT THERE ARE WAYS TO DEAL WITH THAT. AND IF PROPERLY EXECUTED, IT REALLY PAYS OFF.

QUEST GROUPING. MANY PLAYERS FALL THE VICTIM OF BASIC MISTAKE AND THEY WORK JUST ON ONE QUEST AT A TIME. THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME AND IT DOESN’T GET YOU ANYWHERE. AS SOON AS YOU ENTER NEW AREA - CITY, LAND, ETC - GET AS MANY QUESTS AS YOU CAN. AND THEN WORK ON THEM SIMULTANEOUSLY. REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE, “WHATEVER YOU DO DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME”.

QUESTING - HOW TO MAKE MOST OUT OF IT? QUESTING IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF ANY WOW LEVELING GUIDE. THERE IS ALSO NO DOUBT THAT DOING QUESTS IN WORLD OF WARCRAFT IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFICIENT WAYS TO LEVEL UP. HOWEVER, NOT EVERYONE KNOWS HOW TO USE IT IN THE BEST

ADDITIONALLY, DON’T HESITATE DO DROP CRAPPY QUESTS. MEANING, IF YOU REALIZE THAT ANY GIVEN QUESTS IS INEFFICIENT BASED ON TIME/EXPERIENCE RATIO, LEAVE IT. IT WON’T DO YOU A BIT OF GOOD, IF YOU KEEP WASTING TIME ON SUCH QUESTS. THIS IS A MARK OF A SMART PLAYERS - THEY KNOW WHICH QUESTS TO DROP AND WHEN TO DROP THEM. BEWARE OF ACCEPTING QUESTS WHICH ARE INTENDED FOR TOONS, 3 OR MORE LEVELS HIGHER THAN YOURS.

4

ELITE QUESTS ARE ALSO NOT A GOOD CHOICE. IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO SUCH QUESTS, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR ARE A PART OF A GROUP ( WE WILL TOUCH ON THIS LATER IN THE TEXT). OTHERWISE, IT WOULD BE BETTER TO ‘GRIND YOUR WAY’ TO THE REQUIRED LEVEL AND THEN DO THE QUEST..

PHASE ONE LEVELS 1-40 HUNTING AND GATHERING SO YOURE JUST STARTING WORLD OF WARCRAFT, YOUVE PICKED YOUR RACE AND CLASS (GNOME ROGUES FTW!), AND YOURE AT THE POINT WHERE YOU GET TO PICK TWO PROFESSIONS. YOU MIGHT SAY TO YOURSELF OOOH IM A ROGUE SO I WILL GET LEATHERWORKING SO I CAN MAKE MY OWN ARMOR! OR IM A WARRIOR SO I WILL GET BLACKSMITHING

F O R

THERE IS HUNDREDS OF WAYS TO MAKE MONEY IN THIS GAME. YOU BE A GATHERER THE ENTIRE TIME, SELLING MATS AND MAKE MONEY. YOU COULD DO NOTHING BUT MANIPULATE THE AUCTION HOUSE AND MAKE MONEY. YOU COULD GRIND AREAS THAT ARE KNOWN TO DROP RARES AND EPICS AND MAKE MONEY. THERES TONS OF WAYS, THIS IS JUST MY WAY. ENJOY!

SO I CAN MAKE MY OWN WEAPONS!OK JUST STOP RIGHT THERE N00B! LEMME TELL YOU A LITTLE SECRET ABOUT ALL THOSE COOL CRAFTING PROFESSIONS

FEVER, WHERE YOU WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO RAISE THE SKILL OF YOUR PROFESSION. SOME OF YOU WILL SAY YA GEN, BUT THATS WHY YOU TAKE A COMPLIMENTARY GATHERING PROFESSION SO YOU CAN FARM YOUR OWN MATS. THIS IS TRUE, BUT YOU WILL VERY QUICKLY REACH A POINT WHERE THE MATERIALS YOU REQUIRE WILL BE UNATTAINABLE AT YOUR CHARACTERS LEVEL. AND WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO, WAIT UNTIL YOU CAN FARM

SO INSTEAD, PICK TWO GATHERING PROFESSIONS. THE COOL THING ABOUT GATHERING PROFESSIONS IS THAT YOU START MAKING MONEY RIGHT AWAYWALK UP TO A MINERAL VEIN OR A PLANT OR A DEAD ANIMAL AND GRAB THOSE MATS! ITS 100% PROFIT! AND SINCE YOU ARE GOING TO BE SPENDING A LOT OF TIME RUNNING AROUND DOING QUESTS AND KILLING ANIMAL SIT ONLY MAKES SENSE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GATHERING PROFESSIONS. MINING AND HERBALISM ARE THE BIGGEST MONEYMAKERS, BUT SINCE THEY SHARE THE MINIMAP, I USUALLY WILL PICK MINING OR HERBALISM AND THEN PICK UP SKINNING.

I HATE TO RAIN ON YOUR PARADE SO EARLY ON, BUT ITS BETTER I TELL YOU UP FRONT THAN WATCH YOU WASTE WHAT LITTLE GOLD YOU EARN TRYING TO LEVEL UP YOUR CRAFTING PROFESSION. THE PROBLEM WITH CRAFTING PROFESSIONS IS THAT YOU FALL INTO THE TRAP THAT I LIKE TO CALL SKILL LEVELING

WAIT UNTIL YOU CAN FARM THEM YOURSELF? HELL NO, I KNOW YOU BETTER THAN THAT! YOURE GONNA GO RUN TO THE AH AND START BUYING MATERIALS FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF LEVELING YOUR CRAFTING PROFESSION. WELCOME TO THE POORHOUSE! 5

WHAT THEY TALKED ABOUT: THE SUBJECT OF THIS PANEL WAS THE MANY, MANY, MANY NEW FEATURES THAT MISTS OF PANDARIA, THE NEXT EXPANSION FOR WORLD OF WARCRAFT, WILL ADD TO THE GAME. THE PANEL BEGAN WITH DESIGNER TOM CHILTON ADMITTING THAT THE PREVIOUS EXPANSION, CATACLYSM, MIGHT NOT HAVE ADDED MUCH IN THE WAY OF NEW THINGS TO DO. TO THAT END, THE EXPANSION WILL ATTEMPT TO "GET PEOPLE BACK IN THE WORLD" WITH NEW FEATURES LIKE PLAYER-VERSUS-ENVIRONMENT (PVE) SCENARIOS (WHICH WILL OFFER LARGESCALE ENCOUNTERS OUTDOORS), AND IT WILL ALSO OFFER A COMPLETELY REVAMPED CHARACTER TALENT SYSTEM THAT BLIZZARD REFERS TO AS THE "TALENT SYSTEM 2.0," WHICH THE DESIGNERS HOPE WILL ENCOURAGE PLAYERS TO PLAY MORE WITH THEIR TALENT CHOICES, RATHER THAN STICKING TO A FEW "COOKIE-CUTTER" TALENT BUILDS THAT ARE OPTIMIZED FOR RAIDS OR PLAYER-VERSUS-PLAYER (PVP) COMPETITION.
