One of Every Specialization - Leveling 36 Characters before Shadowlands
We love to hear about the challenges and journeys that players have created for themselves inside
World of Warcraft
Redditor Maezriel_ has accomplished a personal goal to
level one character for each of the 36 specializations
over the course of three months. While done for no other reason than funsies, it's a great example of dedication to the game, and Maezriel shared some leveling insights from the journey.
One for each of the 36 specializations, plus an extra Demon Hunter for farming and Mage as a bank alt, for a total of 38 level 120 characters.
When it comes just to leveling, fast specs will tend to be the most fun. In no particular order that'll be:
Rogues are unique in that they are fun to level but those first 40 levels or so are incredibly rough. Each spec brings something a little different so if you're already a very good rogue you'll likely get the most out of swapping specs for the job at hand.
For pure speed the top three for me would be:
Wind Walker (XP buff)
Wind Walker is pretty self explanatory and both it and Fury benefit from incredible damage (AoE and Cleave), strong self heals, and excellent mobility.
If not for the Monk's XP buff Feral would be the fastest by far just b/c of it's ability to slip into a zone, finish a quest, and zip out. Being able to fly while interacting w/ most quest items is amazing for leveling. Notable mentions are Destro and Frost DK. Both kill pretty fast and survive really well so even though their movement is garbage it's still fun to level.
As I'm sure comes as great shock, Healers and Casters (not Lock) are miserable to level solo. Priest are a slog pretty much the whole way through. If you can time Void Explosion you can get away w/ some huge AoE which helps kill things, but it's very limited. Once you hit ~114 your Azerite Armor starts scaling everything super high so you barely have enough survivability to get through 2 mobs so I ended up flipping to Discipline for some quest just to live.
Mage is actually pretty fun to level up to BfA. It's still very fun to gather a ton of mobs and AoE the crap out of them as Frost. Arcane is...meh. I had the most fun w/ Fire where you can 1-2 punch most mobs, especially when you get Phoenix. But like Priest, most casters just don't survive long enough and even in full looms basic mobs can present a real danger once you start getting Azerite.
Yea MM was a lot of fun, especially in low level zones when you one shot things...really feels like a big headshot. It's slower than BM and Surv just due to it's lack of cleave, but it is fun.
Surprised to not see boomkin on here.
Boomkin suffers the same fate as most casters, you spend more time kiting than actually killing.
Feral is an absolute (excuse the pun) beast. I'm very excited to take mine into the Maw come SL.
Also, chain queueing for random dungeons is leveling ezmode, especially as a healer for instant queues.
It's easy and pretty mindless but you don't benefit from the 30% WM XP and it's just slower than questing.
Wailing Caverns and anything 30-60 (Dire Maul, LBRS, etc) is a slog where people frequently get lost.
Wrath and Hellfire Ramparts isn't terrible but I party sycned 60-80 so I couldn't queue in dungeons.
Cata is just slow.
MoP is fantastic and I frequently ran those dungeons.
WoD > BfA I just concentrated on questing. WoD can be done in like an hour, Legion was mostly done through Invasions, and even now people frequently die in BfA dungeons so I just focused on my route.
While leveling this many characters may seem pointless, there are some perks, such as Maezriel's plan to setup a giant "Garrison Farm" using the new characters.
There's a few ways to do it. Gliders are usually good sellers before flight so being able to make a ton for super cheap is nice and Hexweave bags are still solid and take only about a day a week of any real grinding to make a ton.
You might notice all of the characters on this list are Alliance and claim bias, but don't worry - a round of
Horde characters is coming in Shadowlands
I continued that trend into BfA.
Now again all Horde this time.
I will come SL
But seriously what did you do to level? Dungeons spam, Zygor guides?
AAP is the fastest route, I adjusted it to better fit the 100% xp buff.
Hiw did you keep from going insane?
Bold of you to assume that I did.
