The game World of Warcraft unfortunately begins at the end-game level. Everything you do before that (leveling/quiesting, doing instances,…) is just there to learn your class how to play. So everyone wants to level up as fast as possible. There are many factors that affect the speed of leveling to be considered. It is important which quests to take, which talent tree to choose for the specific class and so on.
Fast Way to Level up a Warlock – What is the best talent tree?
Warlock is a one of the pure DPS (damage dealers) classes. So you may think that it is not important which talent tree to choose, as long as they are all for doing damage. But that is not true. The big factor while leveling is mana efficiency. This means that you need a talent tree that you don’t need to drink (for mana regeneration ) so often. And far the best is Affliction talent tree.
Being Affliction Warlock, you have boosted your damage over time spells (DoTs). With talents “Soul Siphon” and “Siphon Life” you become very good health drainer. So when you “Tap” (this is a Warlock’s unique ability to turn health into mana) you can easily recover your lost health. When I leveled my Warlock I didn’t need to stop for drinking at all. I had ZERO downtime and I leveled up really fast.
Some people prefer to level up as a Demonology. I tried but it was slower. And a bit less interesting because your pet does all the job. I was just not fun for me.
The last tree is Destruction which I warmly recommend that you stay away from it while leveling. It is so mana inefficient that you can lose your nerves.
Fast Way to Level up a Warlock – Questing?
Yes! Questing is the best and fastest way of getting XPs (experience points). But you must be aware of the fact that Blizzard created a huge amount of quests with the intent to slow you down. These quests reward you with little XP and take you a lot of time to complete them.
If you’re like me, you’re probably curious about the new Worgen race in WoW Cataclysm. This Worgen guide will introduce you to the racial traits and abilities for this intriguing new race.
Firstly, you should note that this new race will fall under the Alliance faction. Worgens are shape-shifters and your toon will be able to assume the sexy new werewolf form (which are all the rage these days) or human form.
Worgen Abilities and Traits
- Aberration – This ability reduces all the effects of curses and diseases by 15%
- Darkflight – This ability increases your movement by 70% for 10 seconds
- Flayer – Your skinning skills will be enhanced by 15 and you’ll be able to skin 0.5 seconds faster
- Running Wild – Your racial mount… is you! Drop on all fours and go!
- Two Forms – As mentioned earlier, you can go about in Worgen or Human form. Your Worgen form will be used in combat.
- Viciousness – Your critical strike chance is increased by 1%
You will be able to pick up the following classes if you choose to roll a Worgen:
- Death Knight
- Druid (imagine how many shape shifted forms you can take up with this one!)
I quickly realized that regardless of which class you pick for your Worgen character, playing a Worgen is going to be awesome. The racial abilities that Worgens have give them an advantage in dealing damage, running or catching enemies, PvP and leveling.
It’s a pity that we won’t be able to roll a Shaman Worgen or Paladin Worgen, but with the choices we have to pick from, I’m not complaining. The graphics for the male Worgen look very cool, but the female Worgens appear slightly disproportionate to me. Hopefully, Blizzard will fix this before Cataclysm is released. Till then, I hope you’ve found this article informative and helpful!
The first thing you’re going to need to do when you start playing Age of Conan is to determine which race your character is going to be. The Age of Conan races determine which character classes you can pick and so you’ll want to think about your character’s race carefully instead of just picking one based on looks.
Currently, Age of Conan only has three different races to choose from, so it won’t get too confusing. Each race is more or less based upon a historical ethnic group. For example, the Aquilonians are probably most like the Romans at the height of the Roman empire and they are known for their culture, prosperity and great cities.
The Cimmerians, on the other hand, are based upon the Celts with probably a dash of Nordic influence and they are essentially a barbarian race from the mountains and highlands. Conan himself is a Cimmerian. And then the Stygians are desert people and snake worshipers and they are somewhat based upon ancient Egyptians and Babylonians.
There are some other races in the game as well, but they are currently only NPCs, though they may eventually become playable in future Age of Conan expansions.
- Priest of Mitra
- Dark Templar
- Bear Shaman
- Dark Templar
- Tempest ofSet
- Herald of Xotli
Each of the classes fall under a particular archetype, Rogue, Priest, Soldier or Mage and its fairly obvious from the class titles which fall under which archetypes. While each race has a choice of several class optons to pick from, since they also have some natural advantages in certain classes, you may want to let that guide your selection.
The Cimmerians are particularly good at the martial arts, such as swordplay; the Stygians are naturally drawn towards the dark and magical arts (and are the only character class that can be Mages); and the Aquilonian fall somewhere in the middle of the other two races, making it an ideal race if you prefer to play characters with a balanced skill-set.
This rogue leveling guide will focus on things you can do to level your toon as fast as possible in WoW.
This class is a pure DPS class that only wears leather making agility a primary need to increase dodge as well as critical attacks that will help survivability and make killing faster for increased leveling speed.
The stunning attacks of rogues also help to decrease damage and ensure you can continue fighting as well as minimize down time. First Aid is something anyone playing this class should take up as well.
The rogue class has three talent trees that are all nice depending on the style of play one chooses to play.
The Combat tree is the best starting point for any rogue making sure to take Dual Wield Specialization and Precision to be able to attack effectively with both hands. Deflection will increase Parry against the many melee opponents you will face while questing.
Endurance is important as it reduces the cool downs of Evasion and Sprint which are awesome solo leveling talents. Finally Blade Fury will increase your damage which is a must particularly at low levels when trying to power level solo.
You will also want to make sure to take all 5 points in Malice of the Assassination tree.
Ruthlessness, Puncturing Wounds and Vigor are all awesome talents for leveling a rogue as quickly as possible.
Lethality will improve your critical strike abilities and damage followed by Vile Poisons as well as Improved Poisons for obvious reasons.
Fleet Footed will improve movement speed which is a must have for those wanting to level as quickly as possible.
These are just a few of the best talent points for this class and any great in game leveling addon will have them all built into their auto talent point features.
A Bowman is the ranged class in MapleStory. They use bows and crossbows to deliver high amounts of damage to their enemies.
The Bowman’s main stat is Dexterity which provides him with very high accuracy. This will allow them to be the only class to hunt monsters that are a much higher level than themselves.
The Bowman character class gets a very unique skill which allows them to knock their enemies back which will allow the Bowman to stay at range and unleash his fury on them.
Bowman is a low populated class, meaning there are not many of them on most servers compared to other MapleStory character classes.
The downfall to a Bowman is that they take a while to train and level until you reach the 3rd Job Advancement.
As a Bowman, your damage will be very inconsistent while leveling until you get some of the higher end class skills.
While a Bowman is one of the most unique classes to play, their full potential will not be shown until they reach the higher levels in MapleStory.
This is how you can advance as a Bowman character class:
Beginner > Archer > Hunter (with more job advancements)
Beginner > Archer > Crossbow Man (with more job advancements)
If you are tired of playing with the other Maple Story characters such as Thief, you may want to have a change of character class and try your hand at being a Bowman!
