Leveling in Legion
I have what you might call a love/hate relationship with leveling characters in World of Warcraft.
“But aren’t you the same guy who has leveled fifteen characters to 100 already?”
Sixteen, actually. And I’m not sure if there will be a seventeenth. Still, that’s a whole lot of levels. Say what you want about Warlords of Draenor, but they definitely made the leveling process fairly painless. In fact, given the right mix of XP potions and heirloom, you can bang out the last ten levels in under two hours.
But it hasn’t always been that simple. Leveling in Mists of Pandaria, for me, was about as much fun as plucking sphincter hairs. In fact, I’d rather pluck butt-fur than level through MoP. I only managed a small handful of characters through the content when it was current, and the only reason I managed that many was due to Zygor Leveling Guides (cheap plug Zygor, you’re welcome). Just the thought of leveling through MoP gave me a literal headache. Mists, as much as I enjoyed the expansion as a whole, aggravated me so much that I unsubbed for a year.
Legion boasts a somewhat modified leveling process. Zones will scale with the character, making every zone viable for leveling. But Blizzard has taken good concepts in the past and turned them into lumpy poo. So how is Legion leveling looking in
lalpha alpha? Bellular gave it a try and here’s what he had to say.
