It has been one of the most popular questions in the online gaming world for almost 15 years now. What is the fastest way to level in World of Warcraft?
As the game has evolved the answer to the fastest way to level has changed and Blizzard has made some changes in the latest expansion to take the game back towards its roots.
The Battle for Azeroth game expansion involves some of the most drastic changes in the game in many years and the reaction from players is all over the board.
A common theme seems to be that Blizzard has made leveling up new characters much more challenging and slow, but the reality is that it really depends on how you choose to level your characters.
There is no doubt that trying to level characters through player versus player options like battlegrounds has not been efficient for many years. It will be even slower in the new expansion.
Dungeon leveling has probably been the most popular option with players because it quite honestly has been the fastest way to level in WoW. The ability of groups to simply round-up and mow down enemies in dungeons created power leveling that was quite honestly too easy.
Blizzard started a couple expansions back making the game much easier to play and many believe they went a bit over board and made game play way to easy.
I personally believe this was the main driving factor for the millions of players that have left the game in recent years.
This is probably why the new changes have made dungeon leveling much more challenging and if you end up in bad groups of players it can be the slowest leveling option in the game.
Gone are the days of “round them up and mow them down” as players now will need to proceed with caution. The statistic crunch Blizzard employed has proven to make dungeon grinding much slower.
The result of all these changes has brought about a switch back to the good old days of World of Warcraft when leveling through the questing system was the absolute fastest way to bring up a character to the leveling cap.
Leveling characters by following the quest lines is the way Blizzard intended the game to be played and it is now once again the fastest way to level.
While changes have made it take a little longer to kill enemies, the experience reward for questing is second to none.
If you want to level fast in WoW Battle for Azeroth, better dust off those old add-ons and get to questing.
