I have been playing WoW since Vanilla and in the most recent years I have been spending a lot of time playing Vanilla WoW private servers. After Classic was announced I started to work on leveling routes and doing speedruns which ultimately became the foundation of this guide.
This guide is specialized for Human Paladins but any class can follow it for a smooth route to level There are some Paladin specific parts for class quests and item upgrades, but they can be skipped and replaced by your own class specific stuff if you are not playing Paladin. Because of the lack of quest in certain level ranges, doing a few dungeons and their respective quests are highly recommended.
If you are trying to speed level, dungeons are mostly not recommend unless you got a prepared guild or friends group since they can be huge time-sinks if you are going with random people in a non-organized group. Many quests were changed and added during vanillas lifecycle, some of the most noteworthy are places like Thorium Point and Silithus.
Having a good weapon is crucial for leveling fast. Some of the weapon upgrades I get in this guide is limited supply from vendors and will not always be available.
I will point out when there is a new weapon upgrade available during the guide with the notice. Making a bank alt to use as a personal storage or buy stuff on AH and send to your main while out questing or grinding on the other side of Azeroth is almost a necessity in Classic. You can hostile learn Enchanting on your bank alt at level 5 which makes it able to disenchant any BOE items since there are no skill requirements for disenchanting. You should always have a few gold on your bank to be able to buy stuff on AH you might need during leveling.
There are takeovers different ways to spend your talents while leveling to I recommend a combination of Ret and Prot talents for solo leveling and questing, here are some examples:. As I said earlier, dungeons are great for catching up on missing XP or a great alternative to grinding in certain level ranges. The dungeons I recommend you can see below, I also made dungeon guides for them with focus on completing all the dungeon quests and gaining as much XP as possible from one run. At this point your current weapon will most likely be classic like Archeusor maybe even worse.
We have now reached the end of the guide. I hope you found it helpful and you reached 60 in a good time. You still have a few elite Wow scattered around Azeroth to do, and of course lots of dungeon quests. If you are not yet 60 I recommend any of the following:. How to follow the guide When text is colored with Blue it means to accept a new quest.
When text is colored with Green it means to turn in a quest. Recommended Addons Questie Shows all available quests on the map for both accept and turn-ins. Also shows quest information on enemy mouseover for quest item drops.
QuestLogEx Gives you a bigger quest log so you can see your current quests in a much better view. Classic Castbars Enables enemy cast bars, very valuable for knowing when and what to interrupt.
Onebag3 I would strongly recommend having a bag addon to be able to sort your bags and bank easier and saving time when selling stuff to vendors etc. OmniCC Add timers on your debuffs on targets. Leatrix Plus Addon that can simplify and automate many functions like quest accepts and turn ins.
Will save you a lot of clicks and time if you are trying to level fast. Bank Alt Making a bank alt to use as a personal storage or buy stuff on AH and send to your main while out questing or grinding on the other side of Azeroth is almost a necessity in Classic. Paladin Talents There are many different ways to spend your talents while leveling to I recommend a combination of Ret and Prot talents for solo leveling and questing, here are some examples: Dungeons As I said earlier, dungeons are great for catching up on missing XP or a great alternative to grinding in certain level ranges.
Kill Wolves and Kobolds, the goal here is to reach level 2 asap. When you reach level 2, go back to Willem and accept Brotherhood of Thieves.
Go east to the defias and start killing them. Also keep killing wolves to complete Wolves across the border. When done killing defias, go back and turn it in. Turn in Wolves Across the Border if completed. Go back to the defias and collect grapes.
After you got them go and kill Garrick Padfoot. Sell everything in your bags. If you are going to level Skinning you can train it in the house on the left side before you reach Goldshire. When you arrive in Goldshire, turn in Rest and Relaxation.
Set HS. Learn Devotion Aura and Judgement from the Paladin trainer. If you want Herbalism or Mining from the get-go you can run to Stormwind and train them, then use your HS back to Goldshire. Clean your bags and buy Skinning Knife.

Accept Princess Must Die! Make sure you are level 6, otherwise grind on anything you can find before going back to Goldshire. Train spells, clean your bags.
Run east to Crystal Lake, kill murlocs to collect Kelp. When you got 4 Kelp grind your way northeast to the Jasperlode mine. Enter Jasperlode Mine, be very careful of Geomancers, their fireballs do a lot of damage.
You can use the walls to line of sight their casts and forcing them to come to you to minimize risk of pulling more than one. Head straight into the mine and when you come up the slope you will get credit for exploring. Run out of there and if you need more candles or gold dust you can get them from Kobolds outside the mine.
Grind your way east through the forest to Guard Thomas. Cross the river east and enter Eastvale logging grounds.
Accept A Bundle of Trouble. Start killing wolves and bears in the area while picking up bundles of wood. Find the second lost guard in the murloc camp. Accept Report to Thomas.
Be careful of pulling many murlocs and kite them back, kill one at the time. When you got all wood for A Bundle of Trouble turn it in. Go kill Princess at the pumpkin farm, you can kite her away and the adds will reset so you can kill her alone. Turn in Protect the Frontier and Report to Thomas.
