So a couple of weeks ago I came across this leveling trick in Warcraft. It was designed to help speed up the process of going from level 50 to 60.
It involved having a second account with a level 10. I had a free starter account from a few years ago when I was playing around with multiboxing (back when using things like iboxer were legit). I always found multiboxing pretty complicated.
But for this leveling trick, you partied up the character you were trying to level with the level 10. The level 10 could happily sit in Orgimarr and didn’t really need to do anything that click a couple of dialogue boxes to accept the party request.
Once in a group you turned on party sync. This effectively brought your level 50 to a pre-Shadowlands state. You then took them to Silithus where killing the Silithids there would give you 3000XP each. There were some weird quirks, such as you’d get more XP if you regrouped after you were more than 25% of the way through a level, but it was quick and I could do a level and a half in about 30 minutes (at slowest).
I relied heavily on rested XP, but that only lasts so long so my idea was to rotate my various characters with the view that once they’d used up all their max rested XP, I’d move onto the next one, and the next and carry this on over days until I’d done them all by which time the first one had built up some rested XP to go again.
I figured it would be hotfixed at some point, so I might as well do as much as I can. And to be fair to myself I did 2-3 levels on about 10 characters, which is equivalent of leveling 3 more characters. On top of this, these are the classes that I struggle with more. Never play a cloth-wearer, Adrian. They squish too easily. Unless they are a Warlock.
I went on today to do some more and found they’ve now fixed it which whilst not unexpected, was a bit of a downer, especially as I had logged on to cheer myself up after a shitty week.
Hopefully, leveling them a bit will make the quests a little easier. That’s the thing I hate about leveling most cloth wearers. They need so much downtime to heal up (even if it’s using their own heal spells), it takes an age to level them.
But my priest is now at 55, and the mage is somewhere in the mid-53s, so I’m hoping the rest of the grind won’t feel quite so bad. Using this trick has made me realise just how many alts I still have to level. Maybe I’ll get them all done before 9.1 drops.
