Comment on Joana’s 1-85 World of Warcraft Horde leveling Guide Review by Warcraft Addict.
Just going to say (towards “That impressive?”) that the time of 4 days was done via the following things:
1: No help. No instance boosting. He ran this on a brand new server that didn’t have any lvl 70’s on it.
2: Minimal to no rested XP. He never seems to log out in an inn for the bonus.
3: Before Patch 2.3 Nowadays all leveling from 20-60 has two bonuses:
XP needed per level is reduced by 25%.
XP given per quest increased by 25%.
A time of 1 Day odd is possible if you break all three of the following rules, as was shown by Athene.
Nowadays with Joana’s guide I’m guessing you could level to around 2-3 days (25% less XP needed + 25% extra XP from quests=50% faster ish leveling from 20-60). I think he is waiting for new servers to open up before he gives a try to beat his record again. It’s one of the best guides for solo leveling.
Joana himself hasn’t made an alliance guide, but someone who took inspiration from him did. He got a time similar to Joana for the Alliance, and Joana recommends him for alliance leveling.
