Horde Power Leveling
Power Leveling With Your Horde Character
Power Leveling is getting your character up the highest possible level (or otherlevel you desire if you plan on creating a “twink”) as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Horde power leveling, therefore, is doing this with a Horde character. Horde power leveling is easy once you know what to do.
Horde power leveling is usually not recommended for players who are brand new to the game of World of Warcraft. Most players looking for Horde power leveling will be those that already have a high level and are looking to create an alternate character. They usually know what mods they like, where quest NPCs are, and the general basics of playing the game.
Before you start Horde power leveling, there are a few things that you need to do. First, get the biggest bags that you can find. This will eliminate unnecessary trips back to town to empty your bags. Also stock up on the items that you’ll need to get through a period of questing – potions and food for buffs, food and drinks for replenishing health and mana, quest items you have stored in the bank, etc.
Remember, the goal is to quest for as long as possible without having to run back and forth to town.
Also, prior to beginning your Horde leveling process you will want to set up your user interface. This includes downloading any mods that you find useful, such as Gatherer, Questhelper, Auctioneer, Titan, and others. This will help you save time throughout the game.
Below level 30
Horde power leveling below level thirty essentially involves completing as many quests as you can. Do all the quests available in your starting area. For even quicker Horde power leveling, move on to the next closest starting area and do their quests too. These quests will be green to you, so you’ll still gain experience, plus they will be fast and easy to complete.
Remember, gather as many quests as you can from one area before heading out to complete this. This will help you to reduce your trips back and forth.
Horde power leveling after level 30
After level 30, your Horde power leveling will involve a combination of questing and grinding. Grinding involves the killing of green mobs to allow you to gain experience quickly without leaving one area. This is also an effective way of farming certain materials, such as cloth from humanoid mobs or leather from beast mobs.
Level 30 – 40
Once you have reached level 30, you are readyto head to Shimmering Flats. There you can complete all the quests requiring you to kill mobs and then grind on the multitude of basilisks. Stay in this area until you hit 34.
If you have the money to hire a high level, or a guild mate that is willing to trade leveling services, once you hit level 34 your fastest way to 40 is to get runs through Scarlet Monastery. Get someone to run you through, and kill everything in sight. This will require several runs to get you to 40, but the loot and the experience are worth it.
If you don’t have a higher level to help you out, join a group to run the Scarlet Monastery quests, but don’t bother running it over and over again. Instead, you can head straight to Stranglethorn Vale. Grind on the Venture Co. mobs around Lake Nazferiti until you hit 36, and then head to Desolace. Grab any of the naga quests you see and grind and quest in that area until you hit level 39.
At 39 you can head to Badlands. If you are a skinner, this is the perfect spot for you. Kill everything you see until you hit level 40.
Level 40 – 60
At 40 you can go to Lethlor Ravine and kill the whelplings until you hit 43. At 43 head to Tanaris and grind the humanoid in the WaterSpring Field. At 45 you can head to the pirate cove and grind there until 49 or so. Watch out for the treasure chests that spawn as they will contain good loot and gold. Pick up the kill quests for the cove as well to make the grinding go faster.
Once you hit 49 you can head to the Hinterlands and Raventusk Village. Again, grab the kill quests and you’ll be able to quickly grind yourself to level 52. From there you can head to Burning Steppes and grind the Firegut Ogres for another two levels, before hitting Winterspring until you are ready to head to Outland.
After 60, you’re ready to head into the expansions and the higher level content there.
