Mage Leveling Overview
it…leveling has become a bit of a joke. Basically no matter
what spec you pick, or what spells you choose to throw at the mobs,
enemies will inevitably fall in piles before your feet.
almost get to level 85 by simply rolling your face on the keyboard. Of
course there will be slip ups and a few deaths along the way, but
overall leveling is a simple (if not tedious) process.
As tempting as it might be I
must urge you NOT to sleep through the leveling process. I know
it’s monotonous and at times it may feel like your eyes may
bleed, but let me assure you, leveling can serve a higher purpose!
With the right attitude you can
make leveling a positive experience for both you and your future group
members. Instead of tuning out, tune in and take this time to learn the
basics of how to play your class. Try out different spells, learn your
limitations, and if you feel up to it; take part in PvP and instances
to help hone your playing skills.
- Always end your adventures
logging off in an inn or a major city.
Rested experience is good mmkay.
- Search the Auction House or
a good friend to donate some larger
bags for you to equip. 6 slot bags fill up faster than you think
- Buying gear from
the Auction House can be tempting, but save
your money. The gear you can obtain from quests, instances or PvP will
be more than enough to get you to level 85.
- First Aid should be trained
class you are currently
- Be sure to head back to town
level 20 to get your first mount, a 60%
increase in speed makes traveling a little less tedious.
- Often times some quests can
completed alongside other quests. Choose
a quest then check your map to see if nay other quests can be completed
nearby. Complete this clump of quests before heading back to town to
turn them in.
- If you need to use a slower
casting spell, use it to pull the mob,
instead of trying to cast it while it is already attacking.
- If you pull multiple targets
don’t forget to use one of your many crowd control spells
such as Polymorph or Frost Nova.
- Always keep food and water
on hand, minus the loss of some mana it is free for Mages!
- When in town, stock up on
the reagents to use your teleport and portal spells, you never know
when you will need to use them.
One of the main questions
players tend to have is what zone should I level in? Thankfully
Blizzard has made this question a little easier to answer, with
breadcrumb quests leading players onward to the next zone in line.
However, these quests can be missed, or may not be available. So if you
find yourself questioning where you need to be check out our guide on Where to Adventure.
