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!
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.
If you thought your job was done after reaching level 60 and filling out your talent tree, then you’re in for a big surprise! Hitting the level cap is just the first step, because now you’ll actually need to take the time to optimize your character. While a mail agility helm might have worked for leveling because it was all you could find, you’ll definitely want a plate one offering strength.
When it comes to PVP Warrior players will tend to either go Fury or Arms Spec, Fury early levels and when you reach level 60 Arms can be a monster with the right type of gear. Arms specifically with the final talent in the arms tree Mortal Strike is really good for dealing with healers as it reduces the amount of healing that target receives by 50%. Fury can stick to enemies a bit easier thanks to Death Wish, which makes you immune to the Fear you can expect to see from Preist.
Tauren are often considered the best Horde tank due to the extra health from Endurance, and they also have a useful area of effect stun in War Stomp, as well as a head start on Herbalism with Cultivation. Also, keep in mind Taurens have larger hitboxes than other races, allowing them to hit, and be hit, from 2 yards further than other races. This can be a blessing, when trying to reach moving enemies, or a curse, when trying to run away from them. Overall, Taurens make for strong tanks, but lack Orc's and Troll's threat-building abilities, which are especially important on Horde, due to the lack of Blessing of Salvation and the extra DPS brought by Windfury Totem.
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.
Players should stick as close to the level range that we provide below to make sure to maximize the amount of XP they gain. We detail location when it start to get tough to level up after about level 20, this will make it easier to get levels 1-60 with the Warrior class. List of each Location and the Level Range is to the left in a Blue Color for Alliance [Lvl 35-39] and the Orange Color for Horde [Lvl 35-39]. The Mobs you are looking for in that specific area names are Bolded [Mob Name].
Before we give you the Classic WoW Best Leveling Class, let’s discuss what we consider to be the Best Classes to choose for levelling. These are ranked based on how fast and easy it is to level up from 1 – 60 whether you are doing it with a group or simply Solo levelling yourself. Classes with AOE Damage and the ability to self heal tend to rank higher simply because it’s much easier to level up when you can sustain your health and clear mobs of monsters. In the case of Warlock and Hunter Class you have a pet that can help tank mobs while you DPS them down, this is another huge benefit when leveling up.
Some quests in my guide are marked as "SKIP" and colored in red. These quests are simply either too hard to solo or not worth the XP/time and are skipped. My guide will only list SKIPPED quests if the quest is a direct follow up after completing a quest, not one that you have to click the NPC again to get it. If you hover over the skipped quests, it will give info on why it is skipped in the guide (unless that info is already listed directly in the guide text).
