Easiest Classes To Level In WoW Classic

Leveling in World of Warcraft (WoW) Classic is decidedly different from the sort of leveling process we’ve gotten used to in World of Warcraft since Wrath of the Lich King.

Quests are a lot more spread out, quest items drop more rarely and there’s considerably more travel time between quest givers.

Everyone who traveled from Booty Bay to Ratchet will only to find out that he forgot to pick up a follow-up quest will know what we’re talking about.

If you want to level fast, we recommend you use a leveling guide. There’s plenty of leveling guides on the internet, like Joana’s leveling guide.

In this guide, we’ll mainly talk about classes, specs and how your class choice affects the leveling process. Here are some of the easiest classes to level in Classic WoW.

Paladins are, for the most part a mediocre leveling class. They do very little damage, but are exceptionally sturdy. Expect to auto-attack a lot.

Being able to heal yourself is a nice boon, of course. Paladins pick up a bit whenever your enemies are undead, so you’ll definitely want to be heading to Duskwood and the Plaguelands.

You should never leave a city for leveling without at least two stacks of water – if you can get it free from a Mage, even better. The saving grace of Paladins is the free mount you’ll get at level 40 and level 60.

Getting a mount quickly considerably boosts your leveling speed. The ideal leveling spec is going deep down into the retribution tree. You’re going to want a weapon as slow as possible so your weapon swings count, and if you can get your hands on a Fiery War Axe, you’ll be cruising straight to level 60.

Paladins really shine when they’re able to group with another class (we recommend Warriors), with both classes being able to compensate each other’s weaknesses.

You might consider doing some dungeons for equipment.

Shamans are great levelers. They get access to Ghost Wolf form at level 20, which is nothing short of amazing and do wonders for your leveling process. Even if you plan on healing at lvl 60, you will probably want to spec into enhancement to boost your leveling.

You should be prepared to heavily rely on your shocks and ranged abilities until you finally get Stormstrike at level 40. Just like Paladins, you can heal yourself so all you need are some stacks of drink and you’re good to go.

Shamans don’t get the amazing bonuses against undead enemies, so feel free to level wherever you like. Unlike Paladins, you don’t get a free mount, so making enough money to learn riding at level 40 is paramount.

Shamans really don’t benefit too much from grouping, and with quest items being somewhat scarce to drop, you’re probably better off on your own.

Dungeon XP isn’t amazing in classic, so we would only recommend dungeons when you either have most of the quests or find a great group that can clear the instance fast.

 Leveling rating: B+

Druids have access to what is probably the single best leveling ability in the game: Travel form.

Travel form grants a 40% speed boost at level 30, which means you’ll handily outperform just about any other class while leveling. Travel form is so good that some druids even skip out on the level 40 mount altogether.

For combat, a deep balance spec isn’t any good in Classic. But don’t worry, Feral can hang with the best when it comes to leveling so it is an absolute no-brainer what you should pick. On top of that, you’ll be able to tank some dungeons if you so choose.

Make sure to pick up cat form (very important) and aquatic form (great for some quests) when they’re available. If you follow our recommendation and level as Feral, you can choose to skip buying spells like Insect Swarm, saving gold for mounts or equipment in the process.

Thanks to their versatility, Druids can solo some of the easier elite quests. Later on, you will be able to warp to Moonglade, which can save you some travel time.

Leveling rating: B+

Priests should definitely choose Shadow specialization during the leveling process. Even if you plan to heal a lot of instances, most of them can be completed with a Shadow Priest as healer.

The single most important thing for a Priest is probably to get a wand as quickly as possible, either through enchanting or via quest rewards.

Wanding does decent damage and saves mana. Once you get access to Mind Flay, your leveling is going to speed up considerably. Despite that, Priests aren’t amazing on their own.

If you can find a Mage or Warrior to group with, that’s definitely what you want to do. Warrior and Priest can complete most elite quests, while Mage and Priest also have the option of AoE farming (the pirates in Tanaris are great for that!).

Priests don’t get any special boons like free mounts or movement speed increases.

Leveling rating: C-

Warriors are pretty bad at leveling. They’re comparable to Paladins, but do slightly more damage (although you will be rage starved a lot), yet can’t heal themselves, so they still end up worse overall.

They are heavily reliant on equipment, which again, is bad for leveling and don’t get any of the other benefits like free mounts or skills that help your movement speed. If you have the option to group up, you should definitely do so, with your best partners being Priest and Paladin.

If you are on your own, at least make sure to level up First Aid to provide some degree of healing. Your best bet might be to tank a lot of instances to keep your gear up to date.

Tanking anything below level 60 can easily be done with a Mortal Strike spec, so don’t go into deep protection. Still, Warriors are at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to leveling.

Leveling rating: E+

Rogues start out very weak. You can choose between swords and daggers, with swords being better for solo play due to higher burst, and daggers being better for group play.

Be prepared to sit down and eat a lot – at the beginning, you oftentimes can barely take two enemies at once. Like Warriors, you should be leveling First Aid for some degree of sustain.

Rogues are heavily gear dependent, so you should always be looking for upgrades. If you can group with a class with healing abilities, you should do so.

Druids are probably the best partner thanks to their HoT spells. If you plan on playing on a PvP server, rogues come with the boon of stealth.

Still, until you get at least decent gear, Rogues are not good at leveling.

Leveling rating: D-

Mages are quite good at leveling. They do great damage from range and have access to a lot of crowd control spells. If that wasn’t enough, they are able to conjure up food and drink which saves a lot of money during the leveling process and if that wasn’t enough, you also get to teleport to every major city.

There’s really not much here to dislike, although some enemies can be tough. Due to wearing cloth, you’re also an easy target for enemy gankers if you plan to play on a PvP server. Still, mages are, simply said, excellent levelers.

Leveling rating: A

Warlocks are one of the classes with a permanent pet, and pets in general are a great help at leveling. Warlocks are able to farm multiple enemies with their dots, can summon players to instances and get a free mount at level 40 and 60.

On top of that, they’re exceptionally sturdy and can turn many a situation to their advantage when jumped on in PvP. You probably want to invest the majority of your points into the Demonology tree, but some people have reported great success with Affliction builds as well.

You’re mostly going to want to play solo because you really don’t need any help for the most part, but Warlocks are also a very welcome addition to any party thanks to soul stones and summoning.

Leveling rating:

Hunters are the best leveling class in Classic. They have a permanent pet and a move speed boost. Feign Death can get you out of many sticky situations.

Just about their only drawback is that you need to carry ammunition and food for your pet. For picking your talents, you will want to go deep into the Beast Mastery tree, turning your pet into a legitimate tank.

Hunters are incredibly gear independent and you will probably be fine with a bunch of greens, as long as they have a decent amount of agility and stamina on it. Hunters are, at the most basic level, quite easy to play and most any non-elite will fall over just by using auto-shot.

Mend pet and traps complete an already amazing set of skills. Since you already have your own tank at your fingertips, playing alone is highly recommended if you want to reach level 60 as fast as possible.

Leveling rating: A+



Most of the pure DPS classes are good at leveling in Classic, with Mages, Warlocks and Hunters pulling ahead by a decent margin.

Shamans and Druids are hot on their trails. Rogues, Priests and Paladins are lagging behind quite a bit.

Warriors are really in their own tier, because they’re easily the worst at leveling.

We hope you did enjoy the guide and good luck on your journey to level 60.

9 Classes Ranked: Leveling Speed

by Breanni

Reaching the maximum level in World of Warcraft isn't a race—it's a journey. During that journey, you hone your character's strengths and you develop your personal play style. But whether you savor the journey or simply tolerate it, leveling up is what it's all about. This guide sheds some light on which classes level the fastest, coming from someone who has leveled one of every class to 60 and beyond.

FYI: The difference in played time between the slowest class and the fastest class while specced for fast leveling is no more than 6-10 hours. I've found that all classes can level at a rapid pace, but there are clear enough distinctions to separate them in my mind.

October 2008: My goals for expanding this site have narrowed to pet-related content. As such, I'm no longer maintaining this guide. I will leave it up for posterity, but know that it's only current to Burning Crusade content.


Ranking the Nine

All nine classes have been ranked from slowest to fastest. I considered five key elements to determine the rankings: DPS, survivability, crowd control (CC), speed buffs, and downtime. All of these except 'downtime' have been rated as follows:

 =  Excellent
 =  Very Good
 =  Good
 =  Fair
 =  Poor

Downtime has been rated as high, moderate, or low.

My Talents · As I leveled, I tended toward talent specs that facilitated faster leveling. If you're not sure which talents improve leveling speed, check out the official World of Warcraft forums for ideas.

DPS · Damage per second is governed by spells for caster classes, weapons and abilities for melee classes, and a combination of these for hybrids. Higher DPS means you can bring things down more quickly, allowing you to quest and grind for experience with greater speed.

Survivability · Dying in battle can usually be avoided through experience and a healthy supply of combat consumables, such as healing potions. But some classes are more prone to death than others. And death means corpse-running, which adds to leveling time.

Crowd Control · Survivability is often aided by use of "crowd controlling" abilities. Such abilities enable your character to deal with groups of mobs more efficiently, facilitating smoother questing and grinding, and faster leveling.

Speed Buffs · Many classes have abilities or talents that improve their movement speed. This makes moving around the game world faster and leveling quickens as a result. Some of these buffs are minor, while others provide major advantages.

Downtime · Downtime refers to how much time must be taken between fights to restore health and mana before being able to safely fight again. Classes with low downtime are able to move from mob to mob quickly, speeding the leveling process.


#9: Warrior

Around level 50, I switched from Arms and Protection to Fury and Arms, going from weilding a two-handed sword to duel wielding twin maces. This has certainly improved my DPS, although duel-wielding swords or axes would improve it even more so (and likely put warriors a little further down this list). Still, I opted for maces because the stun is wonderful in PvP and it adds a bit more survivability to my build in PvE.

With any warrior spec, downtime is necessary after a few sequential fights, but a high First Aid skill and a healthy supply of bandages helps to reduce that downtime. While warriors boast some great damage mitigation, without the luxury of healing spells their survivability isn't the greatest. With their only crowd control on a 3 minute timer, my warrior often has to chug healing potions to keep from dying at the hands of tightly grouped mobs and unanticipated adds.

Since warriors are often welcome additions to instance-running parties, they do enjoy lots of opportunities to run with groups. This can provide a subtle boost to leveling speed, but not enough for me to rank the warrior class higher than 9 in my book.

I must reiterate, if I had opted for duel swords or axes, I can see how warriors would level quicker. But duel maces are just too much fun to pass up. They're worth the slightly slower leveling in my humble opinion.wink


#8: Shaman

I breezed through my first 25 levels as a shaman. This gave me the false impression that my entire leveling career would be a cakewalk. But then it slowed down considerably, primarily due to downtime. In order to keep my DPS on par with other high damage classes, I had to use a good deal of mana during each fight. Then more mana to heal myself back to full health. Thus, shaman downtime can be more frequent than downtime for any other class.

Once the Duel Wield talent becomes available, shaman DPS gets a considerable boost. Dual wielding mixed with "shock" spells seems to provide consistent DPS with burst potential. And the 41-point talent Shamanistic Rage helps to improve mana regeneration, but downtime is still an issue. And survivability is also an issue, since shamans lack strong crowd control abilities. However, the hourly self-rez makes corpse-running a rarity.

Ultimately, shamans provide utility and flexibility in almost every fight, but they do so at the cost of mana efficiency and, to a lesser extent, survivability. This puts most of the other classes ahead of the shaman in terms of leveling speed.


#7: Priest

Priests begin leveling very slowly. Downtime is high from the start. But after hitting level 15 (and maxing out the Spirit Tap talent), leveling becomes faster. Less downtime is a big help, so I chose spirit over intellect while climbing through the lower levels to maximize my mana regeneration. PW:Shielding helps survivablity, but it's not very mana efficient. However, Mind Flay happens to be one of the most mana-efficient damage spells in the game (and the slowing effect is a major plus). Priest crowd control is limited, but can be a lifesaver when timed right.

At 40, Shadowform becomes the preferred stance and spirit gear takes a backseat to +damage and intellect gear. This reduces the effectiveness of Spirit Tap and lengthens downtime, but it's worth it for the improved damage and mana pool. There's a honeymoon period as a shadow priest from 40-50 where you're nearly unstoppable in PvE (and a force to be reckoned with in PvP). But by 50, your DPS tends to level off and the glory days of your 40s come to an end. By level 55, even with a very heavy shadow spec, shadow priests simply can't compare to DPS-specced mages and warlocks, prompting me to stick priests in the 7 spot.

Like warriors, priests are always in demand. Much of my leveling with priests involves running instances often and that definitely gives at least a modest boost to leveling speed.


#6: Paladin

Paladins level faster than warriors, shamans, and shadow priests? Yup, they

In my original guide, I put paladin 9th. However, after switching from a heavy Retribution build to a Protection AoE grinding build at the suggestion of a fan, I was utterly amazed at how much quicker I gained XP.

The AoE grinding build makes it easy to take on four to six melee mobs at once. And these mobs are at or even slightly above my level. My DPS is still the lowest of all the classes, but when you're killing six things at once, it doesn't really matter. There is virtually no downtime with this build, as I end most fights at near to full health and mana. And the pally's lackluster crowd control isn't really a limitation for this build. Of course, the drawback of this spec is that it's weak to ranged mobs and casters. Plus it's painfully slow when killing just one mob. But survivability is NEVER a problem. Corpse-running? What's that?

This build is ideal for grinding mobs fast and earning quick gold and XP, but it's tough for questing. And since I enjoy that aspect of the game, I continue to quest with my pally and balance it with AoE grinding. If I focused solely on AoE grinding, I'm sure I'd level even faster. But that would get a little too monotonous for my taste. Of course, this build also makes me an amazing tank in instances, which can provide another enjoyable change of pace.


#5: Druid

At the moment, a good Feral spec is very potent. Cat DPS is finally where it should have been from the start of WoW and since you do most of your solo-fighting in cat form, this is a big help. Personally, I chose to put 21 points in Restoration as well, since many of those talents beautifully augment a Feral build. Plus, Nature's Swiftness has saved me from certain death on countless ocassions, which translates into less corpse-runs and faster leveling. Furthermore, Nature's Swiftness can be used in macros for insta-crowd control when outdoors or when fighting beasts.

A good Feral-Resto build provides some wonderful opportunities for instance runs. People always need a tank or healer. This build allows me to fill either role with ease. True, you need to keep two sets of gear handy, but the versatility in groups is worth the loss of bag space.

Overall, I find leveling a druid to be fun and fast, with virtually no downtime. You regenerate mana in your feral forms and you can heal up quickly in your caster form and shift right back to feral to fight some more. And with an arsenal of powerful healing spells, decent CC, plus the armor of bear form, survivability is almost never a problem.


#4: Mage

Some people would probably rank a mage as number 2 or 3 in this list. While Breanni (my mage and the host of this site) can take mobs down faster than any of my other characters, she can only do so at the cost of mana. So the downtime is what keeps mages at the 4 spot. Even with mana efficiency boosting talents from the Arcane tree, mages still have to endure considerable downtime at least every fourth or fifth fight.

Originally, I had leveled as a frost mage. I enjoyed the added survivability with Ice Shield and the ability to kill multiple mobs with chain Blizzards was also a plus. But out of curiosity, I switched to an Arcane/Fire build in my mid 50s and oh, what a difference! Granted, I lack the survivability I once had, but I really don't miss it since I can sheep adds and down most mobs in three or four hits. This prompted me to reposition mages from #5 to #4 in this list.

The big drawback of the mage remains their fragility. A few unlucky resists during a bad pull and you may find yourself doing a corpse-run. To combat this, I tend to bandage up while staring down frozen or sheeped mobs. And if that fails, it's time to chug a healing potion and run/blink away as fast as you can!


#3: Warlock

Warlocks are all about fluidity. Mana is damage; damage is life; life is mana. This flexibility allows warlocks to level quickly with very little downtime. Not to mention the amazing array of crowd control abilities at their disposal.

While I recognize the power of a good Affliction build (mana battery imp, anyone?), I chose to put most of my points in the Demonology tree for leveling. With 12 points in Destruction and a lot of +damage gear, I can DPS fairly well myself. Add to that the fact that my succubus is a true DPS machine. Surprisingly, she's a pretty good tank too, holding mobs for half the battle until they flock to me, nearly dead. And her crowd control is great when dealing with multiple humanoids.

Having a pet and loads of stamina (plus 5 points in Demonic Embrace) helps to ensure survivability. If bad luck should befall you, a Soulstone will prevent a corpse-run. Potent DPS, versatile CC, and good survivablity make the warlock one of the top three leveling classes.


#2: Rogue

I respecced a few times during the leveling process, finding the burst damage offered by Assasination only slightly better than a good Combat build. However, I must admit that the Combat spec granted a bit more survivability (but it wasn't nearly as fun to play!smile) Eventually (around level 50) I settled on a Subtlety/Assassination build and I haven't looked back. So as far as I'm concerned, rogues seem to level quickly regardless of their builds (although the Subtelty tree is less viable at the lower levels in my opionion).

No matter what spec I used, I always kept at least 3 points in Master of Deception, helping to keep me undetected during any location/target-oriented quests. Sap provides excellent CC for humanoids while Blind works on any additional mobs mid-fight. To top it all off, Vanish keeps you alive when death seems eminent. I've outfitted my rogue with plenty of +Attack Power, perfect for a Subtlety build, giving her the second highest DPS among all my characters.

On the whole, I rip through mobs quickly with light downtime. Much like warriors, rogues benefit greatly from a high First Aid skill. So with a couple stacks of bandages, some potions, and a nice array of poisons, my rogue can slice through levels like butter.


#1: Hunter

The hunter was the last class I chose to level. They start off very slow at first, as they're forced to do a lot of fighting in melee mode (which is painfully inefficient for a ranged DPS class). But once a pet entered the mix at level 10, I was surprised to discover just how quickly they breezed through mobs (even mobs several levels higher). This becomes even more apparent as you hit your 20s and up. Provided you keep your pet well fed and well trained, you can level so fast your head will spin.

Aspect of the Cheetah at level 20 helps you move quickly through pre-40 zones and interiors at any level. Your pet soaks up damage like a sponge, keeping you in fighting form with little (if any) downtime. With good control of your pet and carefully placed Freezing Traps, you can easily take on several mobs at once. Feign Death redirects aggro back to your pet, which is exactly where you want it. Furthermore, it can keep you alive when facing certain death. In fact, my hunter, has died only a few times since her creation.

I leveled so quickly with my hunter, it actually became a nuissance for me—keeping more than one pet equal to my level was impossible. Since pets don't get a rest bonus, I have only one pet (a DPSing cat) that has been able to keep up. In spite of that (minor) drawback, hunters clearly take the trophy for fastest leveling.


Author's Note

I don't have a main; rather I enjoy playing all nine classes equally. To date, I've leveled one of every class to 60 and all of them are now slowly making their way to 70. While my above rankings should hardly be taken as gospel, I imagine most people who have attempted to level all nine classes would agree with much of what I wrote. Still, I'd encourage you to play any class you enjoy, regardless of how quickly they level.

Remember: getting to the max level is a journey, not a race. Every class has something unique to offer at any stage of the game.

Class Overviews

Now that you have picked a side, let’s get into more details about each class and learn their roles in the game and discuss their pros and cons.

wow classic races & classes


Leveling: Prepare yourself for the life of misery. There is just no other way around it. Try to fight multiple enemies at once and you are dead. You will have to bandage/eat after a few mobs, so you should find a mage friend to create some food and tip him with some silver, it is going to be cheaper than buying food. Your damage and survivability are both extremely gear dependent. If you have a healer friend who will pocket heal you through the leveling, your life quality is instantly improved. Playing in a group is what you are supposed to do, solo gameplay is a nightmare. However, hard work will be rewarded.

Leveling Difficulty: 10/10

Endgame, PvE: If you made it to level 60 as a Warrior, you are a war hero already. Now the real game begins. Warrior Tank is the only spec considered to be viable in the endgame. Mention that you are a tank looking for a group in chat, and it will take a few seconds before someone invites you for a dungeon run. In good teams, gear will always go to the warrior tank first, and if you are a capable tank – all doors will open in front of you. But do not be fooled – tanking is not easy, so you should learn encounters and your abilities very well. Perform well, find a good guild and your life in classic is golden.

As a DPS role, at higher tiers, your DPS goes through the roof right into the next expansion. So, these are the reasons why so many players choose to play warriors in WoW Classic.

Endgame, PvP: Find pocket healers, charge into the battle, dominate PvP. Nuff said.

Conclusion: This class is your solution for both problems with finding parties and your god complex. If you have what it takes to grind for hours and hours for repair bills, respect costs, buying flasks, potions, farming world buffs, items, you will become a legend. Just don’t get carried away, because Warrior is not only hard to master, but also incredibly time-consuming. The difference between an okay Warrior and a great performing Warrior is crystal clear.

Notable Items: Whirlwind Axe the most iconic warrior weapon. Quest is available at level 30, but you will need help from level 40 players due to the final boss. Kang the Decapitator is a beast 2H weapon, but it can sell for a really high price on AH since it’s the best for the 40-49 twinks. Edgemaster’s Handguards BiS for fury warriors in PvE, including Naxxramas drops. For tanks, Boots of Avoidance or Stockade Pauldrons will last you well into your first raid or two.


Leveling: Boring at low levels. Cast spells, melee stuff, repeat. Bear form unlocks at level 10, and cat at 20. Once you get the Cat Form, you lightspeed through the content. You also get travel form which will help you get to places easier. Stealth in Cat Form helps you avoid danger. You can tank leveling dungeons in bear form, and if you have a caster gear, healing does not really require re-spec. Balance druid is terrible for leveling. The versatility of druid is great in dungeons. Need to tank something, pop bear form. Need to help out a healer, swap out of cat form and throw in some heals.

Leveling Difficulty: 2/10. Very easy to level.

Endgame, PvE: Tanking dungeons is just fine, but when it comes to raids, you are not going to be main tanking. Offtanking is possible on many bosses. Feral DPS is not competitive, but also not that terrible, unlike Balance. Healing does the job fairly well. Druids have the Innervate and the only Battle Res in the game, and a very strong buff, so finding a raid spot should not be difficult.

Endgame, PvP: Carrying the flag in WSG 24/7. Near immunity to CC due to many forms, stealth, druids are super hard to kill and they are great PvP healers.

Conclusion: A versatile class, easy to be the hero in dungeons and raids for that clutch battle res/innervate/swapping to tank or healer mode to save the day.

Notable items:Wolfshead Helm for Ferals, Warden Staff for tanks. Second Wind is an amazing healer trinket.


Leveling: The one class that has zero trouble leveling. Just kite mobs until you get your first pet at level 10 and then hop in on the train to level 60. Keep in mind that Pets in WoW Classic need to be looked after! You need to feed them regularly, or they will literally run away. Do this simple task and they will be loyal to you, taking any of your enemies head-on. You can also track many different enemy types, have access to Aspects (buffs that affect you/your party) and one of them allows you to run faster. To be a good hunter you should remember some tips: turn off the Cheetah Aspect in dungeons – no one likes to get dazed! Also, turn off the Growl ability and tanks won’t have to be angry about losing an aggro. Dismiss your pet before you jump. And now you are good to go!

Leveling Difficulty: 1/10. The easiest class to level up.

Endgame, PvE: Hunters start off strong in raids, but their damage falls off in later raid tiers. However, hunters will be mandatory for their Tranquilizing Shot.

Endgame, PvP: Great in BG, even more so at lower levels. One thing to know about hunters is that they have a dead zone where an enemy is too close to shoot your arrow/bow, but just a bit away for you to melee them. That will be used against you.

Conclusion: Feed your pet and keep its happiness at a high level and in return, your pet will make the world bow before you.

Notable items:Bow of Searing Arrows Slow attack speed is great for Marksmanship, and it will proc quite a lot. The opposite is Hurricane with extremely fast attack speed and still a very good proc chance. The fastest weapon is Precisely Calibrated Boomstick, which offers a great deal of agility but no procs. At lower levels, Venomstrike from Wailing Caverns is a godsend, and Nightstalker Bow if you are lucky enough to find the rare boss in Razorfen Kraul.


Leveling: Quite easy to level, but mage is a glass cannon. Enemy mobs can resist spells, and the higher their level, the higher the chance. Two resists most likely will be your undoing. King of the crowd control and AoE. Able to conjure free food and drinks, which will save you quite some money, which you will use to buy reagents to teleport or make portals. Teleports also help you travel around much faster, and running around takes a LOT of time in WoW classic. Be nice, provide people in dungeons with food and drinks and everyone will love you.

Leveling Difficulty: 3/10. Being a squishy mage means that you will have to actively think while leveling, but the fast leveling is worth it.

Endgame, PvE: Excellent DPS, ability to Decurse will be expected on some boss fights. Everyone will need food and drinks.

Endgame, PvP: Squishy, but great in PvP, left unchecked, mage can demolish enemies. Good against Warriors and Rogues but should be worried about Hunters.

Conclusion: Teleporting to places, helping out others with food and portals, watching things burn – mage is a great caster DPS, you will have plenty of fun and people will love you.

Notable items:Crescent Staff from Wailing Caverns questline is the best weapon until level 25-30. Staff of Jordan will last you from level 35 to 60. Eye of Flame is amazing for fire mages, but the prices would be really high since mages will be very common in Classic. Similar with Freezing Band.


Leveling: To be honest, leveling as Paladin will most likely bore you to death. It is very slow – a single mob will take a lot of time to kill because mainly you will just auto attack. On the bright side of things, you have useful buffs, free mount at level 40, and an epic quest for your epic mount at level 60, which is going to be cheaper than 1000 gold for other classes. As a Paladin, you have many buttons for the «Oh Shit» moments, such as Bubble, Lay on Hands or Divine Intervention.

Leveling Difficulty: 5/10. You can auto attack an enemy and go drink some tea while it lasts. Slow, but not difficult.

Endgame, PvE: Can tank dungeons during leveling, but once it comes to raids, you can forget about tanking due to lack of taunt and mana regeneration. Retribution paladin DPS leaves much to be desired, so you’re left with the option to chain cast low rank heals most of the time and re-buffing raiders every 5 minutes.

Endgame, PvP: One of the best healers for PvP due to plate armor, blessings, and buffs. Killing a well-geared paladin is near-impossible. Combined with other damage dealers on your team makes a paladin great support.

Conclusion: a great class fantasy, champion of light was the reason many players switched from the Horde to the Alliance back in the days. Ability to clutch both PvP and PvE situations on par with being one of the iconic classes in WoW makes Paladin a great choice.

Notable items: Second Wind is an amazing healer trinket. The Green Tower is decent for AoE grinding as a protection paladin until you get a Skullflame Shield.


Leveling: Not much variation in leveling, DoT a mob, shield yourself, wand the mob to death. Once you unlock Shadowform at level 40 it helps with survivability and damage, but you can not use healing spells in Shadowform. As a healer, you will find a spot for dungeons easily. And speaking of healing, you should understand that you will be expected to heal at some point of your priest career, so if you do not like that idea, maybe you should skip on a priest.

Leveling Difficulty: 5/10. Mediocre, not bad.

Endgame, PvE: Best healer for raids, Nuff said. You will be welcomed in the raid groups. Shadowpriest on the over hand is a bit different, their DPS is not that great and raids will often have just one shadowpriest to buff warlocks DPS.

Endgame, PvP: Get a warrior friend and wreak havoc together in any PvP. Shadowpriest is one of the strongest PvP specs and a force to be reckoned with. With the right gear, you can just DoT people and watch them melt, drain mana users and Mind Control people to throw them off the cliffs and edges.

Conclusion: Great support class with awesome Benediction/Anathema questline that gives you the best looking weapon. Playing a priest comes with benefits and lots of fun!

Notable items: Second Wind – healing trinket. Staff of Jordan for level 35 to 60. Crescent Staff from Wailing Caverns questline is the best weapon until level 25-30. Witching Stave – bonus damage on shadow spells. A similar one is Underworld Band.


Leveling: Rogues are very fragile. Extra mob or two and you are dead if your cooldowns are not up yet. But thanks to poisons and lockpicking, you will have a very colorful leveling experience. On PvP realms, it is by far the safest class to level due to stealth.

Leveling Difficulty: 5/10.

Endgame, PvE: While you top the DPS meters in the raid, remember to check aggro levels, otherwise you will be dead before you realize what hit you. You can sap enemies, open locked chests and doors, on par with their high DPS, a rogue is a welcome addition to the dungeon group.

Endgame, PvP: Stunlocking and Vanishing. It is deadly and you are hated for this.

Conclusion: Strong class with useful utility. If you are looking for a pirate life, want to find some lockboxes and make poisons – you are a rogue in heart!

Notable items: Wingblade from Wailing Caverns questline or Stinging Viper for your main hand. If you somehow end up finding a Shadowfang, it is by far the best 19 twink weapon that can sell really really well. As for epics, Dazzling Longsword is actually a really nice weapon that can last you for a while, and Shadowblade can last you well in your first raid or so.


Leveling: Shaman is one of the best leveling experiences in WoW Classic. You can do so many different things – totems can heal you and your party, taunt enemies, misdirect spells, restore mana and increase the attack damage, resistance, armor, etc. You have plenty of spells in your arsenal, self buffs, weapon buffs, heals and a self resurrection. Quests to get totems are interesting, filled with lore. At level 20 you get a Ghost Wolf, which makes you run 40% faster and that makes leveling SO much faster. Enhancement is great for leveling, especially once you get Windfury.

Leveling Difficulty: 3/10.

Endgame, PvE: Shamans are expected to heal, chain healing is one of the higher healing per second abilities in raiding. That is sort of a problem of all hybrid classes when healing spec comes out to be the only one viable in PvE.

Endgame, PvP: If you collect a good set of Enhancement gear, you can one-shot people with Windfury procs every once in a while.

Conclusion: Shamans are extremely fun to level and to play at max level. Very self-sufficient, have strong lore behind them.

Notable items: Second Wind is an amazing healer trinket.


Leveling: Warlocks are the second easiest and fastest to level class in WoW Classic, slightly behind Hunters. Pets are holding aggro, warlock drains health and able to convert health into mana. If you pulled an unwanted enemy, they can be feared off, dot everyone around you and drain health. Similar to Paladins, you get a free mount at 40 and an expensive and long quest for the epic mount at 60, which is still cheaper than 1000 gold.

Leveling Difficulty: 1/10.

Endgame, PvE: People will praise you for the summons, healthstones, and soulstones. A healer would love you even more for a soulstone which enables them to resurrect after a party wipe. The con here is that you need to farm Soul Shards needed to perform all these spells and many others for about 20 minutes before every raid.

Endgame, PvP: Endless fears, dots, health drains – all that comes from a single warlock. Fear is not dispelled by the PvP trinkets.

Conclusion: Great class quests, free mounts, and many tools to handle different situations, not to mention enslaving demons. That alone sounds like a very fun class to play!

Notable items: Crescent Staff from Wailing Caverns questline is the best weapon until level 25-30. Staff of Jordan will last you from level 35 to 60. Witching Stave provides bonus damage on shadow spells. A similar one is Underworld Band.


No matter what your game is, there is a class out there that will be a perfect fit for you. Now that we have covered all nine classes available in WoW Classic, it is up to you to decide which way you want to go. Just make sure that you have fun playing a chosen class and have a great time during your adventure in Azeroth! See you around!

WoW Classic Leveling Guides

World of Warcraft Classic Best Leveling Class

Before we give you the Classic WoW Best Leveling Class, let’s discuss what we consider to be the Best Classes to choose for levelling. These are ranked based on how fast and easy it is to level up from 1 – 60 whether you are doing it with a group or simply Solo levelling yourself. Classes with AOE Damage and the ability to self heal tend to rank higher simply because it’s much easier to level up when you can sustain your health and clear mobs of monsters. In the case of Warlock and Hunter Class you have a pet that can help tank mobs while you DPS them down, this is another huge benefit when leveling up.

Best Duo Leveling Classes

For players who plan to play with others, we recommend these as the Best Duo Leveling Classes. These rankings take into account the synergy between classes and how fast they can level from 1-60 together. For example, having a healer to pair with the Warrior makes for a strong combo since you can now tank mobs more effectively, while the Priest DoTs (Damage Over Time) mobs.

When you level up with a party in classic WoW the amount of EXP you gain is reduced, the more player in your group and are near you the less EXP is gained per mob kill. These amounts slightly adjust depending on your level and the mobs level as killing higher levels mobs will increase the EXP gained slightly.
