New Players Can Skip Leveling in Battle for Azeroth Zones from 10 to 45

Recommended Posts

Chromie Time is disabled for new players, and it is recommended to level from 10 to 50 in Battle for Azeroth zones, but what are your alternatives when you don't want to?

Battle for Azeroth zones are perfect for leveling and offer a good chunk of experience, but if you don't want to level in those zones, you can totally skip BfA content and level up your character in the old zones, up to level 45. Do note that the leveling process in the old world will take longer, as BfA leveling experience is more streamlined. You will still need to level up in BfA from 45-50.

Here's a look at level scaling of the zones in the game without Chromie Time.

  • Vanilla, TBC, and Wrath zones scale from 10-30;
  • Cataclysm zones scale from 30-35;
  • MoP zones scale from 10-35;
  • WoD zones scale from 10-40;
  • Legion zones scale from 10-45;
  • BfA zones scale from 10-50.

Or, this is an idea....you know, not FORCE them into BfA and allow them to use Chromie time and in my opinion, you should allow people to STAY in Chromie Time when they reach level 50 and not FORCE them out of it.

This is Blizz. According to Blizz, you don't play your way, you only play the way Blizz meant for you to.

I know, i know, I am not really a smart person, but even i thought of this the moment Chromie Time was a thing, but Blizzard, being Blizzard totally misses the opportunity to use it the best possible way.

Yes. Because, you know... They made the game. A game has rules. Ergo, they make the rules.

However, when you make something to streamline old content to get people caught up to Shadowlands faster, force all new players into one expansion, and allow existing players to choose other expansions, you are funneling veterans away from new players while isolating new players into a zone that doesn't have any real benefits in the game play experience to a new player compared to more popular zones such as Legion/WoD/MoP.

Combine that with the separate but equal dungeon queues with the 15 minute restriction on them before seeking out other queues, and you're actually giving new players a worse experience than veterans since its going to be mostly newbies playing with each other for 40 levels and bumbling their way through it.

Bumbling while leveling is okay for a brand new game, and okay to a degree for an existing game, but if your entire goal of streamlining the leveling experience is to get people to Shadowlands content faster, this is counterproductive to that.

As for the remaining in Chromie time at 50, while I understand the desire to have that lvl 50 talent in the old content, there is also nothing stopping anyone from going to Org/SW and turning off XP gains while 49 if they want to remain in Chromie time.

Edit - if it's not the lvl 50 talent point, I know for a fact from having just leveled a warrior through Chromie Time in Legion that all end of leveling content becomes available at lvl 45, such as Uniting the Isles (WQ), Suramar, Broken Shore, Argus, etc. So you don't need to be lvl 50 in Chromie Time to access that content.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio

      We finally have 100 Alliance guilds that have taken down Sire Denathrius and cleared Castle Nathria on Mythic difficulty, which means cross-realm Mythic is on its way!
      The final kill occurred around 5:30 CET today, and since the cross-realm feature arrives on the next reset after the 100th kill it might be available to EU players today (this is the very same timing as the Ny'alotha 100th Alliance kill and it was available the same day in EU then, but there were some server issues around that time so we're not 100% sure), while US/OC players might have to wait until their next Tuesday reset. The Hall of Fame: Sire Denathrius (Alliance) achievement and Famed Slayer of Denatrius titles should still be available until the next reset (again, most likely only of US/OC players, given the timing).
      Proud Manlets was the final guild to claim one of the Hall of Fame spots on the Alliance side, and it's taken 29 days for the blue team to catch up to the red.


      You can check out the full Hall of Fame here.
      Thanks to NageK for spotting the final kill!

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      Mortanis
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.
