Ever since World of Warcraft was released, players have come with many types of strategies that fit best to their play style. Not any Horde leveling strategy is great when it comes to keeping up a high XP rate.
So, in this post, I’m going to outline a bit, some of the leveling strategies that Horde players can follow these days, focusing on the pros and cons of these methods.
1. Grinding. In my opinion, just grinding on mobs at one of the well-known Horde leveling spots will never be a great method to level up. However, with a considerable XP bonus, from gear, rested XP, or various other buffs, you can still get decent XP, if you’re able to AoE large packs of mobs. Anyway, this method will always be boring.
2. Battlegrounds. I don’t remember which patch was it when XP in battlegrounds was introduced. Many players received the news with a lot of enthusiasm, because leveling up via BGs can be a lot of fun. However, if Horde loses 3-4 BGs in a row, this is not a viable Horde leveling strategy.
3. Gathering. This sounds crazy, and it’s definitely a bad idea just to level up by gathering resources. You will surely level up at snail speed. I know some players that have done that, but only because they had nothing better to do. Gathering is a good way to boost your XP by questing though. Picking up a mineral here, or a herb there will gather up a nice amount of XP over time.
Best Horde Leveling Strategy
Questing, has always been the best way to level up in WoW. But, if you want to level up your Horde character as quickly as possible, you need to know precisely what to do on each quest, and also which quest hub to choose at your current level. For that, the best Horde leveling strategy that I can recommend is to work with an in-game Horde leveling guide.
