Level 1-50 in 4 Hrs 37 Mins on Shadowlands Beta

Recommended Posts

49304-level-1-50-in-7-hours-on-shadowlan
 

DesMephisto is back at it with some new tricks and routes, as he's back to his 4-ish hour 1-50 speed from before heirloom XP was removed. The actual run performed today took 4 hours and 11 minutes for 10-50, as the 1-10 side of things is bugged at the moment, but in total it would take 4 hours and 37 minutes to get to the current level 120 equivalent in Shadowlands. This is around an hour slower than his previous best with heirloom XP, and he used his usual Warlords of Draenor routes, with some extra consumables. He also ran into some bugs along the way (like having to unstuck and kill himself, quests not completing etc), so we'll be seeing some even faster ones coming soon.

XP bonuses:

Consumables and notable items:

As always, we should remind everyone Blizzard have stated the XP numbers on the beta are not final and will be tweaked, but we're looking forward to seeing just how low DesMephisto can get anyway, and while his times aren't representative of the general player base, we can still extrapolate the changes out of his times, and they definitely indicate the removal of heirloom XP wasn't as big of a hit as it looked initially. And again, thanks to DesMephisto for not only getting these speed runs done, but also giving us a ton of info to go with them!

    That's not bad at all specially if you are looking for alternatives from Heirlooms. And his next series of leveling will possibly be shorter. Has anyone or Blizzard found what will become of Heirlooms in general?  Just unwanted gear in an unused tab since they won't offer xp gain?

    even without the xp on the looms they will still be used since im 99.9% sure they still give better stats then what you would get from quests/find

    theyre supposed to get a new bonus thats useful,but even without that,just having gear (esp weapon(s)) that will always be level appropriate is a huge benefit (plus if you really want to minmax its cheaper since you only need 1 enchant)

    I hope they update some of the stat distribution on them to have some more choices, leather for example has 2 sets with the exact same secondary stats now that they're no longer divided between Agi and Int.   Would be nice to have some more versatility pieces too like the new cloaks they added in BfA

    My only concern with this is it seems like I may not have enough time to complete an expansion's story, or even several expansion zones, before reaching level 50 and having to move on to Shadowlands...

    Was really looking forward on being able to focus on an expansion per alt while leveling 10-50, but now it seems like leveling is too fast for that.

        They've gotten a bit smaller, but today's hotfixes are still pretty solid. Soul Ash will now be mailed to you if you forget to loot it, so you can go through Torghast without fear, there's more Covenant swap fixes, class tweaks and the regular huge quest fixes as well!

        It seems the Shadowlands aren't getting the best of receptions over on the user side of things on Metacritic, and since the critic reviews aren't in yet that's the only score available. The negative reviews currently outweigh the positives, which wouldn't be problematic in general, but as often happens with Metacritic user reviews some negative ones are not really accurate or helpful. And the reasoning given in some of these some reviews is pretty... "interesting", so one might characterize this as review bombing.


        The scores themselves are always problematic with Metacritic, but it seems Shadowlands is particularly afflicted with this issue at the moment, as the vast majority of the negative side of the slider are just 0 scores. There are some negative ones that are perfectly legitimate, with fair evaluations of the person's opinion, but most are just 0 or 1 scores (in a 0-10 scoring system), and many of them have some VERY insightful "reviews" to offer:
        Regardless of some of the above perhaps having some valid points, assigning a 1 or 0 to a game as complex as WoW is just laughable, and while it has become the de-facto way to say "I don't like this", it's just pretty sad to see in the WoW community.
        Then there are also those that are legitimately frustrated at the very real issues present, like queues and similar (although with this logic, Vanilla, BC, Classic and basically the majority of WoW expansions would also get a 0):
        There's plenty more where that came from, as well as glowing 10-scores, so if you're interested, head on over to Metacritic's page and check them out!

        The Neutral never stops! Doubleagent, the Pandaren that refuses to pick a faction and is thus trapped on the Wandering Isle, pre-Horde/Alliance choice, is back in the Shadowlands and chasing that maximum level via only herbing and mining!
        The Shadowlands made this endeavour quite a bit easier, as XP from the nodes was substantially increased, so much so that a Vulpera was able to get from 10-50 in about 20 hours recently! The neutral club has also grown over the years, and we now have a full group (at least) of Pandaren that are standing up to the faction separation and have made their home on the Wandering Isle! Here's the start of Doubleagent's Shadowlands trip:
        We're eagerly awaiting the level 60 ding! It'll almost be as awesome a level up as this one! You can also check out Doubleagent's previous max level ding, 120, or the Legion one in which he goes into detail on the entire journey.

        The first 3 Torghast layers became available this week, and the total amount of Soul Ash you can collect is 810 if you are at max level.
        Two Torghast wings are available each weak, meaning you can get up to 305 Soul Ash from each wing if you complete Layer 3 for a total of 610 Soul Ash. The Explore Torghast quest is also available and rewards an additional 200 Soul Ash upon completion. In total, you can acquire 810 Soul Ash this week. You will need 1,250 Soul Ash to craft your first legendary item, though, so you will be able to craft it next week (December 1, 2020).
        Check out our Torghast guide for more information about the Tower of the Damned!

        Chronicle of Lost Memories is a catch-up item that teaches you uncollected Legendary Powers for your class.
        You can purchase it from Renown quartermasters at your Covenant Sanctum. It costs 35 Grateful Offerings each, and the item teaches you a random Legendary Power for your class that you haven't collected yet. You can get the currency from doing activities related to the Anima Conductor that you unlock at Renown level 3. It requires 4 Anima streams permanently reinforced.
