Power Level 1-60 in 2 weeks!!!
This is the method the power levelers have used since closed beta
and I finally got one of them to give it up. It is by no means the
way to go if you want to maximize your experience in the game as
this method will bypass almost all the content in the game and
essentially ignore many of the fun, unique aspects of WoW. This is
not recommended for new players and is meant for players who already
have experienced the content and just want to level up an alt to
play with their level 60 friends (ie. your level 60 instance group
needs a priest and there are no priests to be had). As a benchmark
to how successful you are with this, download cosmos and use the
clock feature to measure your xp/hour. At level 50 you should be
getting about 40,000+/hour. Before we get started, I have to
ask the question, is it really possible to level to 60 in 2 weeks?
Yes it is, even if its on a new server the average played time from
experienced farmers takes about 9 days /played (during a 13 day
span) about. The current world record is 4 days 20 hours
/played (during an 8 day span), all done by one person who goes by
the character name Joana (also sometimes known as Mancow for his
male characters), this guy has
won many leveling contests, even the first to 50 leveling contest
held by Blizzard back in March, here is a
of the runners up once he hit 50, this guy is amazing. He
also sells a leveling guide and a complete 1-60 video showing his
exact run of 4 days 20 hours /played time on
his site here. Now on to the guide...
1-20: Newbie lands, stick to the friendly zones (not contested).
Just grind. The quests are a waste of time up to level 20 if you are
focusing on maxing out xp per hour.
20-26: Wetlands quests and raptors/slime/orcs for grinding. Redridge
mountain Lakeshire quests.
26-30: Duskwood quests and undead for grinding. Hillsbrad critter
roamers for grinding.
30-35: Did these all in a day on Daggerspines in Hillsbrad right
next to Southshore along the coast. Huge spawn, very fast respawn
rate, easy mobs to kill. Purgation isle (island in the very far
Southwest water area of Hillsbrad) also a nice secluded place you
can grind on undead.
36-40: Hillsbrad southshore quests. Desolace quests and kodo
grinding for 36-38, then Undead Ravagers in the southeast for 38-40.
Cresting exiles at the circle of outer binding in Arathi also for
37-41; extremely easy mobs with a fast respawn. Alterac ogres from
35-40 for grinding. Drywhisker kobolds in Arathi east of Hammerfall
for 36-39 for grinding.
41-45: Hinterlands trolls, owl beasts, and wolves for grinding and
quests. Badlands ogres, gnolls, and quests.
45-48: Tanaris quests and pirates on the eastern paninsula for
grinding. Stranglethorn vale quests (only if you need rewards imo).
Badlands greater elementals for grinding.
48-52: Felwood deadwood gnolls for grinding and quests from the
sanctuary in the south. Blasted lands dreadmauls for grinding.
Un'goro crater (best started at 50) for primarily quests and
grinding off the plants and tar elementals. Azshara undead
highbornes and thunderhead hyppogriffs for grinding.
52-55: Azshara blood elves for grinding. Burning steppes dreadmaul
rock ogre caves firegut ogres (very low AC) for grinding. Felwood
irontree woods and cave for grinding (great spot). Western
plaguelands questing for argent dawn and grinding on undead
throughout the various camps.
55-58: Eastern plaguelands quests from the sanctuary, grinding on
undead at the ruined towns. Winterspring grinding at winterfall
village or Lake Kel'Theril undead highbornes (my personal favorite
camp). Blackrock Stronghold in Burning Steppes for grinding.
58-60: "The" yeti cave in Winterspring, due Southeast of Everlook
(very nice place). Grosh Gok compound ogres in Deadwind pass (great
spot, no one knows about it). Eastern plaguelands Fungal Vale undead
grinding and argent dawn token farming. Moonowls in northeast
winterspring for grinding.
