Level Your Alts Now in Preparation for Dragonflight

Recommended Posts

67549-required-experience-per-level-chan

Experience gains are now increased by 70% on live servers and the XP required per level from 50 to 60 won't be going live before November 15, which is why it's currently faster to level alts on retail instead of waiting for the XP reduction to go live.

  • Hallow's End provides you with a +10% Experience buff for 2 hours.
    • Unburdened Unburdened (Alliance Buff) - You have cast your worries into the Wickerman's fire. Increases experience earned and reputation gained by 10%. Lasts 2 hrs.
    • Grim Visage Grim Visage (Horde Buff) - You have painted your face with the Wickerman's ashes. Increases experience earned and reputation gained by 10%. Lasts 2 hrs.
  • War Mode gives you a 10% Experience buff.
  • Winds of Wisdom Winds of Wisdom gives you a +50% XP buff.

All 3 buffs currently stack for up to +70% increased Experience gains. Winds of Wisdom is going away on November 15 in the Americas or November 16 in Europe.

The Level 50-60 XP reduction won't go live before that, so do not hold on off leveling your characters for Dragonflight.

Placeholder for tweet 1582421300068651008

If you are leveling to 50, there is an extra account-bound potion in BfA which costs 5 commendations and increases XP gains by an additional 10% for 1 hour. You should get enough commendations by completing 1 Warfront.

Heritage armor for most I'd wager. Though many of us will level alts just to have them levelled, not to actually play like a normal alt. I have a goal of having every race at max.

Sure it does. You can get ahead with reputations, work your way past the curve when everyone is suddenly leveling their new mains and such oversaturating quest areas...

 

Plenty of reasons. Professions?

Just get everything to max. If you do, do it for the other faction. You don’t need to learn while leveling because being max is so far different than leveling.

I don't do professions, i used to, but not anymore, it took painstakingly long to level up leatherworking, finally got the good stuff, only for it to get replaced by the next quest, so future characters never picked up crafting.

Trust me, i have done the same with Sha-The Expansion that shall not be named, Legion, BfA and each time, the lower level zones were virtually empty, not entirely, but the higher levels were MASSIVELY CROWDED.

Besides, i am wondering how much their nerfing has affected their performance while levelling up, on the PTR, my Ret Paladin at level 25 or so, not making 1,300 type numbers, while on live, at the same level it was not even breaking 750, but then again, the PTR had more available abilities and new ones too.

Overall, it is each to their own, for me, fresh character.

You would be surprised, i learn by doing, from the start, not suddenly when things change....it is likely a social issue i have, it is like a youtube video doesn't do jack for me when learning tactics for a raid or something, i can only learn by doing, when i used to raid alot, players were more.....grown up, emotionally speaking, now -a-days, if you make a single mistake, it is as if you committed a war crime.

Besides, you guys, the 50% xp boost will still be there until November 15th or something, so that is plenty of time, besides, assuming Chromie doesn't kick you out the moment you hit level 60, like it kicks you out the moment you hit level 50,m but it also prevents you from changing the expansion you want to do at level 46, so right now, the best time to turn off xp is level 45.

I just wish they would give us the choice to remain in chromie time, especially when this pre-patch hits.

I already did em all with the first winds buff :/

Congrats....i guess.

I never rush, i see players rushing to do content, i never understand why they do it, its in all games with matchmaking in general, they rush through it and i always wonder why, there is no reward for faster completion....it just seems weird to me.

I will wait until after the phase 1 of the prepatch goes live.

I didn't really rush. I thought I was waiting till the last minute actually lol.

I thought the winds buff was the last shot before DF and I like to get em all up to current level before the next xpack drops. I didn't know there was a second 'last chance' coming.

I mean how many characters do you have? cause i only like melee, 2handers, since then, i just need to find 1 weapon, not two.....casters are off putting because you have to kite and i do not like to run from fights.

Let's not forget profession skills are sorted separately by expansions, so levelling one before expansion releases doesn't do anything.

I have 1 more alt I'm just getting to 50 and it's my Kul Tiran Shadow Priest.  Just trying to get it done before the xp buff goes away.  So far I've gotten a Troll-Monk, Troll-Rogue, Undead-Warlock, Dark Iron-Shaman, and a Worgen-Hunter to either Lv50 or L60 for Achievment progress/completion or to just keep on the back burner to see how well DF goes after I've leveled my DH to L70.

      The pre-patch period always brings plenty of bugs with it, but it seems the dignity of Worgen has suffered in particular this time around, as their gear sets collection screen isn't looking so hot. There's more than a couple of bugs happening here, related to the Worgen's dual nature, but all of them are equally horrifying and hilarious.
      Ok, so I lied about ALL of them looking both horrifying and hilarious, as this next one definitely leans in to one of those a lot more than the other...
      And finally, while this one is neither Worgen nor gear set-related, I had to add it because, well, I mean I had to, right?

      The duos are at it again as HeroicSolo and Durendil are 2-manning all sorts of content in the Dragonflight pre-patch! Today we have three Castle Nathria bosses and Vigilant Guardian from the Sepulcher on Normal mode, as well as a +15 in time Tazavesh run!
      Let's start with the +15, with the Vengeance DH and Beast Mastery Hunter managing to get Streets of Wonder done with 9 minutes to spare!
      Then we have the raids, as they take on the early bosses in Nathria and the Sepulcher, with some added commentary below the videos as well:
       
      Pretty hard fight both in terms of survival and DPS. The hardest mechanics were:
      1) Pneumathic Impact was very painful at 4+ stacks, so I used Last Resort and Feed the Demon talents, aswell as Aegis trinket to survive 4+ stacks. @DurendilLeHunt had used engineery CR to ressurect me on p2 after Pneumathic Impact oneshot, so I could tank the whole phase.
      2) Fated barrier affix – since we're only 2 players, and one of them is not guardian druid (*hehe*), it was very hard part too. So I used The Hunt, Unnatural Malice and Soul Furnace talents to squeeze maximum burst damage into barriers. I've even used Fiery Brand a couple times not as defensive CD, but as offensive CD to zerg barrier ASAP.
      3) Phase 3 was very painful for @DurendilLeHunt , aswell as Exposed Core cast on P1. So I've used Darkness + Pitch Black talents to help him to survive that damage.
      4) Bringing orbs to the gates on P1 was high prio task just to avoid additional tons of adds and start P2 as fast as we can. And running with orb (when we had a whole crowd of adds + active emitter) wasn't trivial for 2 players situation, so I've used both charges of Infernal Strike to bring orbs ASAP.
       
       
      Huntsman Altimore was very hard challenge because of +100% damage stacking buff on boss and also we had to kill spirits properly.
      Xy'mox was pretty hard, just long fight with some survival and movement challenge. Kiting ghosts multiple times per fight as tank was very fun ?
      @DurendilLeHunt 's surviving and engineering CR usage skills are incredible ?

      The Professions overhaul in Dragonflight introduced multiple secondary crafting and gathering stats, but what exactly do they mean and why are they relevant? Find out more about deftness, inspiration, multicraft, resourcefulness, finesse, and more, in our latest post.
      Secondary Crafting Stats
      Crafting Speed
      The stat increases your crafting speed by x%. Ideal for those who create tons of items to sell them in the Auction House. Inspiration
      You craft items at various quality in Dragonflight and Inspiration increases your chance to become inspired and craft an item at a higher quality than your current crafting skill would allow. For those with maxed out crafting skill, the crafted item will have better stats. Multicraft
      Increases your chance to craft additional items by a percentage. When you craft an item, you will have an x% chance to create an additional copy of that item. This only works for stackable items. Resourcefulness
      Decreases material costs of an item by a percentage. Every item has fixed crafting requirements and Resourcefulness will decrease the amount of reagents by x%. Secondary Gathering Stats
      Gathering stats will only affect Herbalism, Mining, and Skinning.
      Deftness
      Increases gathering speed by x%, which means you will mine/collect herbs/skin faster. Finesse
      Gives you a x% chance to find additional herbs/ore/leather. Perception
      Increases your chance to find rare herbs/ores/leather by a x%.

      Here's a valuable tip for all Transmog collectors! Don't forget to change the vendor filter from your class to "All" to see weapons hidden from your character.
      By default, the gear vendors filter shows you only gear for your class. However, some weapons remain hidden even when your class can equip them. Therefore, it's important to change the filter options to "All."
      One item example is Galerider Shank dagger from the pre-patch event gear vendors, which is hidden from cloth casters by default because it has Agility. However, cloth casters can equip daggers and thus collect the appearance.
      Another example is the Stormbender Saber Intellect sword which cannot be seen by Death Knights, Hunters, Rogues, and Warriors, but changing the vendor filter to "All" lets them buy it.
      The tip has been brought up by Reddit user acctg.

      The quest for the Hand of Nilganihmaht mount is now available on live servers!
      Nilganihmaht Control Ring (Golden Hand Mount)
      "Of all the giants who dared defy the Jailer, Nilganihmaht was the most arrogant. For this transgression, the giant's severed hand was hidden within a veil of torments, and the rings that could summon it back were scattered across the Maw."

      Putting A Plan Together will be up until the Necrolord Assault ends, which is 3 days and 5 hours as of writing this post in the US region.

      Check out our Hand of Nilganihmaht guide for more details on how to get the mount!
