World of Warcraft Useful Leveling Tips

World of Warcraft is a game that is friendly to beginners by design, but also challenging for intermediates and veterans. As you play more, arrive at farther reaches of the in-game world, and achieve higher levels, you will find it tougher to hang on and keep up, even with upgraded equipment and whatever preparation you may have had beforehand.

If you are still willing to power through this phase of in-game existential quandary and become the best that your character can ever be, then here are a few things that you can put up with in order to make the process of leveling up a much easier and less soul-draining experience. If you want to stay with the game and not get discouraged by the trials and tribulations that lay ahead, then having a more systematic approach is crucial to in-game survival.

Make Leveling a Race

There is no shame at all in turning your gameplay experience in WoW into a competitive thing. In fact, that's how a lot of the successful players see it, pitting their determination and skill against other players, whether it's with their friends, their guildmates, and so on. It also makes leveling a much more fun experience, and turns the grinding into a less daunting experience.

It can motivate players to always chase after a goal and upgrade their equipment whenever possible. It also helps to have already planned your character's build out, so that you don't even have to think about what you should do when you do level up. That also makes transitions more seamless since you can't just stop playing and think about what to do next, unless you really have no clue about what you're doing.

A great way to do this is to go on farming runs, provided that you know where to farm in the first place. Research the various spots where you can get the most XP in the least amount of time. Since WoW has been around for so long, this process has become somewhat like a science, so you may want to read up on what your predecessors had already come up with and follow their lead. This does not mean that there's no room for creativity left in playing this game, but it does mean that you have plenty of resources for learning and understanding just how this game works.

If you really want to know how to level your class properly, check out several awesome World of Warcraft leveling guides around the web.

Do Not Be Overwhelmed By City Attractions

As you level your character, you may have to drop by nearby cities to do various things, like talking to trainers, attend classes, do some trading, completing quests, and so on. During this time, you may get distracted at times. Do know that every time you divert your attention to something else, then it takes away from the time you could be spending gaining another level.

It's good to explore and experience World of Warcraft in its entirety, but do know that you can always do that later once you've hit max level. But for now, you will be better served with a stronger character that can do just about anything in the game, so you have to play hard to get that privelege. Once you hit that pinnacle, then you may do as you please and explore.

One of the things that you will spend a lot time on later is training your chosen professions. That means spending much time in the cities. There are some professions that you do want to grind alongside your character's level to save on time, and you have to determine right away what it will be. Focusing on one ensures that you won't have to waste too much time and still be able to level your character at a reasonable pace.

Plan Your Travels by Estimating the Time of Arrival

One of the things that you will find yourself doing a lot is traveling, which is actually not as easy as teleporting from one place to another. In World of Warcraft, you have to ride on various things to get from one place to another, so it's basically commuting in the game. It can take quite a bit of your time, so you may want to plan your travels before you start scurrying around.

You have to travel in order to do various things, like going to other cities, get gear in Auction Houses, and so on. If you spend a good amount of your time in the Auction House, which you will if you're constantly looking for the best equipment for your character, then you will be doing a lot of traveling around the world.

At least you have a way to tell how long it takes to get from one place to another. Just like in real life, estimate your time of arrival in a faraway land so that you don't get bogged down by unplanned trips and so on. Always plan your journeys to ensure good time management in the game.

World of Warcraft General Principles You Need to Know

As perhaps the most popular online gmae in the world, World of Warcraft is definitely no small thing in most of its players' lives. It has practically taken over the world in more ways than one, having seeped into mainstream pop culture and the world's consciousness. There are plenty of good and bad things being talked about in the game, and it only serves to spread the word of the game equally.

Most of the time spent in the game by those who play it for the first time does go into learning how to play it though, which may not be as fun as it sounds. Much of the reward in the gameplay is out of being able to play it relatively seamlessly. Much of the nuances are in the combat system, which is what really separates the veterans from the beginners in this game. If you think that you still lack the knowledge about your class, many sites offer good World of Warcraft Builds for you to follow.

Here are a few principles that you can take to heart. There are the golden rules, which are common sense things that you must adhere to in order to play WoW well. You must never travel alone since the more the merrier, and you may need help along the way. Solo play is not really the way to go in WoW since it's a social game in its core. With that in mind, always buff yourself and those around you, and don't be stingy about it. Teamwork is of the essence, and it need not be intimidating. All you need to do is to stick to your party, use your buffs whenever they're needed, and don't abandon them.

On the subject of survivability, you always have to leave defense at the area you captured. You must also let the team know where the enemy's strong and weak points if you happen to have that information, so that you don't waste your time dying in order to learn how to properly fight a specific enemy. Since death can be rather costly in this game, you must stay near the healers. If you are a healer, stay near your group and let your mates protect you. You help them, and they help you.

You don't want your enemies to have the same treatment though, so kill their healers if they have any. There's nothing worse than damaging an enemy, only to have it regain its health just like that. Despite that though, always focus on the main objective and concentrate all efforts upon accomplishing it, no matter what. There should be no room for distraction in the game, especially if everyone else is counting on you to work with the rest of the team.

Finally, you have to report whoever is away from keyboard, or AFK. There is nothing worse than a player who abandons post in the middle of battle or is just absent for most of the time. You are not to let such individuals earn their honor, especially since they don't put in the time and energy in being there in the first place. You have to report them for the good of all, so don't be forgiving whenever you do find someone who tend to be absent.

Before you charge into battle, there is a calm before the storm. This period is called the Buff Phase, and that's when you contribute to the collective effort by giving all you can and buffing everyone. Since buffs cost no mana at all, there's absolutely no reason for you to not do so. Anyone who you don't buff may become a liability later on and die, decreasing your force's strength and dragging everyone else down. Therefore, you must never miss anyone in the buffing process.

It must be said that no plan ever survives the battlefield, as it is in real life. However, having a plan in the first place and it going to dust is way better than going in without one in the first place. At least it does give you a bit of tactical advantage to have a plan beforehand, and it's reliant upon the Battleground Leader to facilitate that plan. The job of everyone else is to provide support according to the plan and the situation on the battlefield, and to stick together in order to survive.

That's the basic gist of playing World of Warcraft. It's a game about teamwork and camaraderie, and that's what makes it truly great. Don't forget to have fun as well.
