In this article, I will show you different things I do when I level a character in Wrath of the Lich King Classic Phase 2. This is to be as efficient as possible. By the time I reach level 80, I will also be able to equip a lot of different Epic Items.
Get A Tome of Cold Weather Flight
For those of you who already have a level 80 character, go to Dalaran and purchase the Tome of Cold Weather Flight. So, by the time you get to Northern Front, you can also start flying.
Overall, it’s such a good decision to purchase this. You’re going to travel a lot faster. You can easily skip monsters and get to difficult locations in next to low time. And in my case, I was even lucky enough to have the Epic flying mount. This made me able to do every single level in around two to two and a half hours.
Things To Help You Level Speed
There’s quite a few things you can do to increase your leveling speed. You could, for example, purchase the different Heirlooms items in Dalaran. Each of these items, such us Champion Herod’s Shoulder and Champion’s Deathdealer Breastplate will increase your experience gained by 10%. So, by purchasing the shoulder and the chest, you can get another 20% experience by the time you reach level 70.
And if you have got some Honor, you can also purchase the Brutal Gladiator items, which you can purchase in Stormwind City as Alliance and as Horde in Kolramas. These items are quite powerful especially if you enchant them with Breakfast Of Champions and gems.
So, try to get your hands on this gear because you can easily use this all the way up to level 80 and between level 70 to 75. It’s going to have a huge impact on your leveling speed if you struggle with getting Honor. Later in the article, I’ll also explain you how you can take advantage of your main character to send Honor to your old characters.
There’s also another trick you can use when you’re level 71. At level 71, you can queue up for the battleground Wintergrasp and in here you’ll get a lot of Honor. That’s an easy way to get some Banner for your Brutal Gladiator items, but you won’t be able to do this until you’re level 71.
Sometimes, these games only last for a couple of minutes and you easily get around three to five thousand Honor. Sometimes, you might also get longer games where you spend around 10 to 20 minutes. However, this is also going to give you a lot more order. I spent around 6 minutes and I got a bit more than four thousand Honor. So, this was simply worth it, also because I’m going to use this Honor by the time I reach level 80.
For those of you with a lot of gold, there’s a specific item you can purchase on the Auction House and this is a repeatable quest so it’s repeatable. It also allows you to get a lot of experience, but you will need a lot of WOTLK Classic Gold to do this.
If this is going to be the first time you’re going to level in Reference Material with the Lich King or if you decided to roll the new faction then, I highly recommend you to add on Rested XP. This add-on is developed by some of the best speedrunners in WoW and it will tell you the exact quest to do and in which order you can find.
By the time I reached level 75, I also went to soul track. There’s a quest chain where you have to kill a lot of different Elites by completing all these chain quests, you’ll receive a lot of gold and experience. The final part will even reward you with a rare weapon. You will not be able to solo this at level 75, so you will need to make a group or maybe even find a level 80, who can help you.
As I was leveling in soul drag, I’ll also completed this quest where I received 5 Emblem of Heroisms, which I can spend in Dalaran to purchase different Epic Items. I’ll also receive 5 of these when I completed a long quest chain in Dragonblight and even a lot of them in Storm Peaks and Icecrown, the two final zones you should level in.
You’re probably going to get around 40 to 50 in these two zones. These Emblems will definitely have an impact on how fast you can gear your character and it will also help you get into either heroics or some of the early raids.
At level 75, we can also go to shadow fight and keep and pick up Daily Quest. This allows you to spawn a burst and this bus will drop a level 80 Epic Items. There’s going to be a tanking neck, a DPS neck for all the different specializations and even a Healer neck, as well. This bus can be quite difficult, so you will definitely need 4 other people at level 80.

At level 77, you can also go to the northern part of Icecrown. Up there in WotLK Classic Phase 2, the Argent Tournament ground has been implemented. This is a location where you can pick up different quests and even different daily quests that rewards reputation and experience.
At level 78, I went to Dalaran to pick up the Daily Dungeon Quest. This will reward reputation and two Emblem of Valor, another currency you can use in Dalaran to purchase different level 80 Epic Items that are better than the Emblem of Heroism gear. so I completed the Daily Dungeon Quest.
And at level 78, a lot of different dungeons are available where you can pick up quest even without doing any prequest, so make sure to try to do the different dungeons from 78 and all the way up to 80 to get experience while you gear up your character, because in these dungeons, you can easily gear up your character.
By the time you reach level 80, you can head right into heroics. As I mentioned earlier in the article, at level 71 you can start doing Wintergrasp to get Honor. I did this once in a while to make sure I was on a cap.
By the time I was level 80, I could spin the Honor on different levels of Epic Items and if you’re level 78 you can now also pick up different quests that rewards experience, WOTLK Classic Gold and even some additional Honor.
So, this is the point where I reach level 80 and the moment I reached level 80 are also equipped different items. Some of these are purchased on the Auction House a couple of hundred WoW Gold WotLK and between them was 70 to 80. You can easily make around two to three thousand WotLK Gold just from questing, so by buying these Epic Items, you’re going to catch up a lot faster and I highly recommend you to do this.
You will of course also be able to purchase items that is more expensive than a couple of hundred WoW WotLK Gold. These items will allow you to do the new raid even faster, but it’s not needed if you’re just looking to do Heroic+ or maybe even next runners.
Next up, I went right to Dalaran City to spend my Honor and what I did was to purchase the full Hateful set. This is five items: helm, shoulders, chest, piece gloves and legs. So, if you have around 34,000 Honor. Then, you can also purchase the full set.
Next, I went to Stormwind City to purchase other Epic Items. You could also do a sword in kolramas. So, in here you can purchase Hateful items, Deadly items or even the new items various Gladiator items. The most expensive is of course Furious than Deadly and Hateful if you’re just looking for some fast Epic Gear.
Then, make sure to purchase Hateful items because they usually cost around 30 to 35 percent of the Honor that you would need to spend just to purchase one various piece. So, if you’re looking to upgrade a lot of your equipment well, then simply just purchase the Hateful pieces and don’t worry with these items. You can do just fine in PvP but also in PVE when you do the Tier 7 rates next to the Obsidian Sanctum or maybe even the Eye of Eternity.
