Leveling up in a game like World of Warcraft is a time consuming process. It starts way back in your starting zones and it will take you across all over Azeroth, Outland and Northrend to reach level 80. Some players can get the entire process done in as little as 3 days, but for those of you that cannot – and for those that are struggling to get it all done in less than a week or two – here are some things you could very well be doing wrong.
1. Farming for Gold – To start with, stop farming for gold. You're wasting time and you don't need gold until you hit Level 80 or so. Most of the gold you need can be gathered while questing. If you're coming up a bit short, grab mining and skinning and gather gold that way as you level. But, stop farming so much – it's a waste of time.
2. Not Speccing Your Talents – Your talents are vital for getting to better levels in the game. If you want to level up faster, you need to spec in a way that is designed to support levelling speed, not tanking or healing. Talk to your fellow players or check the wikis to see which specs are best for levelling your class.
3. Not Questing – Always quest when playing the game. These quests award huge XP bumps as you move upward and will allow you to get to new heights at record speed. Make sure to spend a great deal of time playing the game, but always quest and it will go by much faster.
If you're doing any of these three things, you're wasting time and effort by levelling up the slow, amateur way. Rather than wasting all that time on strategies that have not worked since 2.1, make sure you get the right streamlined approach in place and blast your way to level 80 with a clear idea of quests and areas you'll visit.
