Others – The consumables mentioned above are often considered essential. There are still other items you can acquire to optimize even further, but aren’t as important or impactful as the ones mentioned above. You can benefit from Scroll of Strength, which gives +17 Strength for 30 minutes, or Scroll of Agility, which gives the same amount of agility instead. These are random drops from enemies and chests, so farming them is unreliable.
Even though warriors do have two DPS specializations, arms and fury, fury is highly favored amongst higher leveled players. Arms is primarily reserved for PvP and leveling, mainly because of the stat requirements to effectively deal damage as a fury warrior. While you’re still leveling, you don’t have the ability to pick and choose what stats you have, instead using any piece you can find.
Taking all factors into consideration, the best race for Alliance warriors is a human. Many Alliance racials are better suited for PvP purposes, which makes it tougher to decide a clear winner. None of the races stand out as amazing, but humans do have a passive boost to weapon skill when using a sword or mace. This gives them the slight edge over any other Alliance race, but a dwarf wouldn’t be a terrible alternative.
Members Area: My members area will launch one week before Classic WoW launches. At this time I am unsure of how much content will be in it. I suspect it will be about the same price of a Twitch sub (of only about $5 a month or so). The members area will support the ongoing efforts to improving my leveling guides over time. There is a lot more content planned for the future, including remastered TBC leveling guides (even if Blizzard does not launch Classic TBC). And remastered WOTLK leveling guides. I plan to continue to make leveling guides for WoW full time for many years to come!
For players who plan to play with others, we recommend these as the Best Duo Leveling Classes. These rankings take into account the synergy between classes and how fast they can level from 1-60 together. For example, having a healer to pair with the Warrior makes for a strong combo since you can now tank mobs more effectively, while the Priest DoTs (Damage Over Time) mobs.
Welcome to our World of Warcraft Classic Leveling Guides List, Below we rank the Best and Fastest Classes to use when levelling from 1 to 60. We also made another section with what Talent Spec we think are the best for the tough levelling process that is Classic WoW, just below that you can find links to our complete guides for each class and our recommended Talent Build to use and locations to farm to make it faster and easier.
PHASED CONTENT ROLLOUT – Following its launch, World of Warcraft Classic’s content will be released over the course of multiple phases reflecting the game’s original order. Re-experience WoW history unfolding as heroes gear up for Blackwing Lair; players battle for PvP Honor and Rank rewards; and entire realms band together to open the gates of Ahn’Qiraj.
Jack of all trades — Arms/Fury/Protection 31/5/15. This build was the meat and potatoes Warrior build of classic WoW. This was the build you picked if you were going to do some tanking, some PVP, and you weren’t the main tank of your raid guild or just didn’t want to have to switch specs around constantly. It does a little bit of everything — it has Mortal Strike for those bosses that had a self heal, it lets you switch to a big 2h weapon (although you don’t get 2h Weapon Specialization) in your off hours, it’s basically the I’m not going to be the best at anything but I can do anything you need spec. There are variants for players who wanted to do more damage — swapping out Improved Thunder Clap and Hamstring for 2h Weapon Spec, for example.
If you want to always have dibs on getting into Raid or Dungeons being a Tank is the way to go, and if you are Warrior Tank well that justs the cherry on top. Tanks are always in high demand and if you are unsure how to complete a Dungeon or Raid some players will be happy to teach you if you ask. When it comes to PVP Protection Warrior can be useful Flag Runners if they have a Healer pocket them, even without you can make due.
Mobs out in the open world generally have a higher movement speed and higher attack speed than you. If you were to stand still and trade hits with a mob back and forth you may end up trading 1 of your Auto attacks for 2+ of theirs. If executed properly, The Hamstring Method allows you to trade 1 hit for 1 hit with a target, drastically reducing your damage taken while not reducing your damage at all since you are monitoring your natural auto attacks with the swing timer.
Another important part of optimizing is collecting consumables to use during tougher encounters. Because of how expensive some of these items can be, you’ll probably want to reserve costlier items for raids. While consumables aren’t a requirement, they are another way of making your character even stronger. Taking the time to collect and use consumables shows other raiders that you are dedicated to performing at your best!
As many of you know, leveling a Warrior in Classic is not easy - it’s almost like playing the game on hard mode. Despite having low mobility, low sustain, and the highest gear dependence in the game, Warriors are by far the most played class in Vanilla. There is a sort of masochistic appeal to leveling the hardest class in the game. To some, this epic challenge provides the purest Vanilla experience, and watching an expert pilot this class with finesse is like watching an artist at work.
