Honestly am I the nly person who played a pally from vinnilla wow to cata, and actually felt they kinda destroyed that interesting, and very interactive feel they had going with them back in bc. I loved the fact you had to actually almost use seal-twisting, and actually micromanage the seals much more back then which added another layer to the combat for me. I mean back then you had i think 6 or 7 seals which lasted i think it was 30 seconds to a min at the longest (it might have been 15 to 30 seconds not sure here just no it was a rather short duration0, and not only did the seals have varied effects while active they also had secondary effects when judgemented as well, and so you kinda could change seals to manage alot more then we can now. Even the micromanagement of the blessings kinda was interesting, as you had the long duration (15 min) buffs like salvation (threat reduction, wisdom (mana regen), might (strength), Kings (flat stat boost.), sancuary (damage reflection, and damage reduction.); an then you had the shorter duration blessings like sacrifice (damage redirectin to the caster from the buffed layer), protection (physical damage reduction,a nd deactivate physical damage dealt.), freedom (cc-removal.) which after lacing up an runing out on a target you had to reapply the longer term buff prior that was on as they overote each other. Even divine intervention had alot of uses that i found for well both saving groups from wies, bugging encounters, robbing/stalling gankers of kills, and saving repairs (using DI never took away durability on armor as such you could DI last second before death to avoid paying for repais as offen or much.).

I am soooo tired of WoW, even if I have that year long subsrciption lying there stealing money from my bank account.... And I am all too busy with my family and Secret World. Then you come and make one of these... and suddenly the evil imp of bad ideas sit on my shoulder "Hey! Mister! Why don't you... level of of THOSE guys! Do it, I know you want to!"


I hate it.... I just know I will find myself sitting in the WoW character creator any day now, not knowing how I got there. Typical... :)

Warrior leveling is like this: Get to level 15, get instant q's as a tank, continue until level 85.

Since cataclysm, warrior and paladin have been quite easy to level.  I leveled up both of mine to 85 quickly, rogue I basically have no interest anymore, same with the deathknight.  I found both of those to be boring.  The warlock is also somewhat difficult to level and of course priest if you don't go shadowform.

Article  not about Hard to lvl or easy  William said at the beggining WoW is most casual game.

All classes are easy to lvl up 2 weeks and here you go you at max lvl  and can finally start farming for somethg.

 Its About how booring some classes to lvl :)

For sure Warrior tank and holy priest was most booring before :)

Have no idea whats going on now but  just noticed lots of ppl focusing on Easy or hard. Not booring and less booring :)

If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s FF-XIV.

The worst when I played based only in my own opinion is

5 Mage- why because im more up close and personal in my playstyle.

4 Hunter- Once people would get close before the skill that let you jump back it was the class that got owned by everyone, not enought long range dps to take out mage/lock not enough close range for even a rogue. Now It's not as agrivating but the constant change in pet system still makes it one of the worst.

3 Priest- constant healer spams directed at you to stand like a tree and just heal starting at lvl 12 to max just makes lvls painful to me.

2 Shaman- at about 78 i found it very hard to lvl solo and after wasting days to get it to this lvl i have never maxed it out because of this.

1 Warlock-Squishy the imp suxors.

I call BULLSHIT on this entire article, at least for ME.  I have 20 character over several servers, but my 3 favorite are on Tanaris, and they are my 81 pally, 80 lock, and 85 priest.  I didn't find any of them unbearable to level in ANY way.  I enjoyed them all immensely.  Granted, I did have the opportunity to run a lot of dungeons, but still.....the WORST to level?  No way.


I vehemently disagree with this article.  I do, however, thank the author for sharing his opinion.

If you don't realize where you went wrong with this article, then I just don't know what to think of you. Honestly, it's not about how it's your opinion - it's the outdated info and you not having enough knowledge about the game's classes to warrant writing an article about the game's classes. 

But, I've said my piece, and I'm done here.


I have to agree with the deleted user here. Next time, write about games you do currently play, and let others handle those you don't.

From the column, about warlock:

The only thing that makes him difficult is the fact that he actually requires some measure of thinking to play in a solo manner

Really? Warlock was the first class i maxed out back in vanilla, on horde side. During TBC I leveled another, alliance side. After Cata, I leveled another one. So I'd say I know this class VERY well.

Warlock NEVER required "some measure of thinking to play in a solo manner". Imo, together with hunter, it's the easiest class to level. It's ok to not like it, but that's not what you said here.

I am baffled how the author managed to pick up in the article the 4 classes I levelled the quickest as the most difficult ones?!? I know writing doesn't leave a lot of time for actual playing, but at least do your homework and ask regulars about their experience before posting. The shere mention of locks here is ridiculous. That was the class that made the first lv80 when WotLK was out. It was the same levelling machine in Cata as well.

Played WoW from launch off and on through WotLK.  


80 priest - heal

80 warrior - tank

80 paladin - tank

80 druid - tank

80 warlock - 111211121112

80 death knight - tank (fail)

7x mage

7x rogue

7x hunter


My main was a priest at launch, rolled with a friend and his brother on a PvP server with devious plans.  Those plans were never realized because I fell so far behind them while leveling the priest.  Post-dungeon finder that's not much of an issue as leveling tank/healer is fastest path.


Remember finding a group in chat and running by foot from Southshore to the Scarlet Monastery and farming those three dungeons for hours with the same group?  Those were the days.

Someone set us up the bomb

The perspective of the author sounds like someone who played from vanilla to TBC & unsubbed since mostly. Nothing wrong with that, the article just brought me back down memory lane.


I have a level cap of each class and raided/pvp'd with most of em over the 6 years I "played" WoW.


If you mean currently (pre panda mode)... then non are hard to level. W/ the revision of the skill trees over the last few years its made every class pretty easy to solo... provided you spec decent in your talent tree.


Paladins grab a 2h, go ret, and your 85 in no time. Slower way to level and more painful would be prot spec (no queing for dungeons though).


My opinion is for the slowest/hardest class to solo atm currently would be a pre-80 protection spec warrior (once again no queing for dungeons).


Grinding the mobs down with a 1h weapon takes a longer, warrior doesnt have any heals besides the pots n bandies you bring. No aura like a paladin that can heal on hit for so much damage n a small/large heal to boot (not very mana efficent)... o and the bubble.


So while still tedious to the vet to start at level 1 with yet another alt, leveling is a breeze these days.. period.

Haven't played WoW for years, but how fun leveling a class was, depended on how fun you made it tbh.

I leveled a mage twice, it was my main for years. If you went through the same routine for each mob, then it was boring as all hell: you just spammed the same casting rotation again and again and then spammed it some more before you conjured more food / water and sat down to drink / eat.


But then you could also pull a couple of groups at the same time and kite them all over the place, you could spec into improved blizzard and try AOE grinding, you could train that elite monster over half the zone, etc.


That was what made mage and some other classes, like hunter and even pally (aoe grinding with pally was awesome) fun for me.


The only class I couldn't stand to level was the warlock, mostly because they seemed to lack the option of performing all sorts of tricks, you couldn't really go far outside the rotation. Maybe that has changed now though.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

It's not a matter of prefacing the fact that it's opinion, it's wording the thread properly to avoid confusion.  Your title is "The worst class to level" which to many, including myself, indicates what class is more difficult to level than others.  You seem to be arguing which is less fun, which isn't always related to difficulty (I enjoy it being more difficult, therefor it's more fun).

If it was labeled "The least fun classes to level" it would make more sense, imo.  Of course it's opinion either way but at least you indicate that you're saying what you have the least fun with.

I found the warrior to be pain in vanilla Wow, unless you all ready had a 50 so you could buy gear/potions ect.

Don't even remember leveling most of my pallys, since they have so much survivability you don't ever stop. Boring? Maybe, but I can get one to 85 in 3 days played, so it's not awful to play.

Plus none of WoW's classes are really awful to level at all in the Catacylsm world.

Bill, you know damn well what is wrong with your piece. It's not that it's opinion based, it's the fact that you are basing your opinions on information that is 6-7 years old. I would expect that you would have at least gone back and seen how things have changed BEFORE writing this. Research is key in all forms of journalism. That was my biggest beef with your column, you didn't even bother doing your homework (properly) first.
