    Introduction

    Greetings Prospective Warrior, my name is Kargoz and I’ve been playing World of Warcraft for a long time. Starting my journey in 2004, I’ve since leveled multiple classes to 60 on various Vanilla realms, including Nostalrius, Anathema, Zeth’kur, Lightbringer, and most recently on Northdale. I’ve learned through the years that leveling is probably my favorite aspect of the game, particularly speed leveling. The awesome thing about Classic is that leveling is a huge part of the overall experience!
    In order to make this guide as accurate as possible I contacted multiple reputable Warriors including Gilnash and Tribe. I can’t express how thankful I am to everyone who contributed something to this project, your collective understanding of the class proved invaluable. I am thrilled to present for your viewing pleasure this Warrior Leveling Guide for World of Warcraft 1.12 !

    Preface

    As many of you know, leveling a Warrior in Classic is not easy - it’s almost like playing the game on hard mode. Despite having low mobility, low sustain, and the highest gear dependance in the game, Warriors are by far the most played class in Vanilla. There is a sort of masochistic appeal to leveling the hardest class in the game. To some, this epic challenge provides the purest Vanilla experience, and watching an expert pilot this class with finesse is like watching an artist at work.

    There are a lot of qualified Warrior opinions out there on how to level optimally so I tried to do as much homework as possible as to not pay this community a disservice. I have reviewed the guide made by Monkeynews and Tips Out, Got Milk, Hiddeh, Braydon, Big Musk, and Orcbit. I have consulted legendary warriors with track records of speed leveling success such as Tribe and Gilnash.

    This guide will simply be my attempt to put all the pieces together.

    Useful Addons

    Swing Timer <- Click for Link to Addon
    Every melee class should have a timer that tracks both your attacks and your enemies attacks. This is important because you will need to weave both movement and abilities between cooldowns in your autos to prevent clipping into animations and missing damage.

    XP / Hr Tracker <- Click for Link to Addon
    Track your leveling efficiency with precision. You will have insights such as EPH (XP / Hour), EPM (XP / Minute), and Average XP per kill.

    Outfitter <- Click for Link to Addon
    Addon allows you to swap gear back and forth easily.
    This is useful for switching into your Spirit Set
    between combat to reduce regeneration downtime.

    Why is A Swing Timer Important?

    Before you get started leveling it is of VITAL importance that you download and setup a Swing Timer.

    What is a Swing Timer?

    A Swing Timer is an addon that measures the time between your weapon swings. It is useful to know this information so you can use abilities and move freely without clipping into your natural auto attack cycle and consequently losing damage. It is extremely important to have this addon as we will be using The Hamstring Method to level to 60.
    While the bar is loading to full it means you can move freely - you are not wasting any damage. As it starts to fill back up this signals that your auto attack cooldown has almost reset and you should position yourself to swing again.

    Start Attack Macros

    Why are Start Attack Macros Important?

    Start Attack Macros are important so you don’t have to manually right click mobs to attack them. You bake them into your abilities as a macro so even if you don’t have enough rage to use an ability such as “Heroic Strike” or “Mortal Strike” you will still attack the target.

    The issue is /startattack commands don’t work in Classic so you have to set them up in a weird way using a script.

    Place your Auto Attack on Inventory Slot ID 24 which should be the right most slot on your hidden action bar #2 (The one you accidentally shift into). Then plug the ability you want into the example macro to the right.
    Example Start Attack Macro:
    /cast Heroic Strike /script if not IsCurrentAction(24) then UseAction(24) end;

    Warrior Specific Tips

    Ideally you should only be fighting mobs that are equal level, or 1 - 2 levels below your level.

    If you are at 100% HP you are probably misplaying - push your combat efficiency more!

    Don’t overkill mobs with your abilities. Make sure you spend rage efficiently and pool it whenever possible.

    Keep your Food + First Aid up to date! Bloodrage + Bandage to stay in combat and heal.

    Have a Weapon Progression Plan!

    If you see a mage, ask for stacks of food +int and tip him! (your weapon skill will likely not be maxed)

    Keep a 1h + Shield on you always for shield bash interrupts.

    Skip the majority of Protection skills when training - take only what is necessary. Only train Rank 1 of Thunderclap, Cleave, Overpower, Shield Bash, (damage increase / effect is negligible).

    Life 1-10

    If you are ever at 100% HP you are likely misplaying - push the limits of your combat efficiency.

    Train First Aid + Skinning ASAP

    Use whatever weapon has the highest DPS regardless of type (polearm, staff, 1h etc.)

    Save every single copper - you will need money for weapon upgrades. Buy white weapons from the vendors as your money permits.

    Initiate with Charge ideally but sometimes you will have to face pull as charge will be a liability.

    Tab target rend if you are fighting multiple mobs. Use thunderclap if you are fighting 2+ mobs and only if they have high attack speed.

    Do Defensive stance class quest.

    Talents

    Start with 2H Fury up to 36 for Whirlwind or wait to 40 for Mortal Strike depending on playstyle. Then respec to Arms for Mortal Strike. Proceed back through Fury finishing with 5/5 enrage.

    5/5 Cruelty -> 5/5 Booming Voice -> 1/1 Piercing Howl -> 3/3 Blood Craze -> 1/5 Imp. Battle Shout -> 5/5 Enrage -> 1/1 Death Wish -> 2/2 Execute
    -> 3/5 Imp. Battle Shout -> 5/5 Flurry -> Lvl 40 Respec Arms

    Arms Path:

    3/3 Imp. Rent -> 2/5 Deflection -> 5/5 Tactical Mastery -> 1/1 Anger Management -> 3/3 Deep Wounds -> 1/2 Overpower -> 2/2 Impale -> 2/2 Overpower -> 2/5 2H Weapon Spec -> 1/1 Sweeping Strikes -> 5/5 Axe Specialization -> 4/5 2H Weapon Specialization -> 2/2 Imp. Charge -> 1/1 Mortal Strike -> Proceed back into Fury at this point

    Fury Path:

    5/5 Cruelty -> 5/5 Booming Voice -> 1/1 Piercing Howl -> 3/3 Blood Craze -> 1/5 Imp. Battle Shout -> 5/5 Enrage

    Life 10-20

    It is most efficient at this stage to kill Single Targets as opposed to killing multiple at the same time.

    Keep a 1H Shield on you starting at lvl 12 when you get Shield Bash.

    At level 15 Upgrade your food to 552 hp / 24 seconds.

    Skip Mocking Blow and as much as possible in the Prot tree. Only train Rank 1 of Thunderclap, Cleave, Overpower, Shield Bash, (damage increase / effect is negligible).

    Life 20-40

    As soon as you have Blood Craze at 21 you can start practicing sitting mid combat with a (/sit macro) which will make the mob crit you 100% of the time. This will proc Blood Craze and eventually Enrage at lvl 25.

    You need to start integrating your /sit into your Hamstring Method. This is quite APM intensive but 100% worth it. Once you master this technique you will have a 25% Damage Boost with nearly 100% uptime.

    At 30 do your Berserker Stance quest and use the Hamstring Method to easily kite around and kill Big Will.

    If 30+ you have the support structure such as a Guild, do your Whirlwind Axe quest ASAP.

    Stat Priority

    Better stats on your Weapon such as DPS, Weapon Speed, or Damage Range will be more impactful than stats like Strength or Agility, however here is the base stat priority:

    1 Point of DPS = 7 Strength = 14 Attack Power

    Pre Level 30 (Sustain Priority)

    Spirit -> Strength -> Agi -> Stamina -> Intellect

    Post Level 40 (Crit is Priority)

    Agi -> Strength -> Stamina -> Spirit -> Intellect

  • Founder Warrior Horde

    Sick weapon progression. Resurgence Rod requires missing out on Thrash Blade though. That's a trade I wouldn't recommend any Warrior make.


  • Initiate

    *Orc Crusher - 18.2 DPS - Lvl 18 - Quest Reward from “Tharil’Zun” Redridge Mounts Group Quest
    Alliance weapon progression.
    You will not be able to complete this as a level 18.. the elites are way to hard even with a level 18 group you won't do it... the elites are 22+
    Advise to rework the progression on this one.. you could complete the quest but hell you'll need a high level friend to help you out with this one

    *Life 20-40
    As soon as you have Blood Craze at 21 you can start practicing sitting mid combat with a (/sit macro) which will make the mob crit you 100% of the time. This will proc Blood Craze and eventually Enrage at lvl 25.

    This won't work aswell, sit critting is wrong even kargoz says this in his streams?,

    *Stat PriorityPre Level 30 (Sustain Priority)
    Spirit -> Strength -> Agi -> Stamina -> Intellect,

    ->getting spirit pre 30 will require you to use cloth/leather if you find any leather at all.. this will hurt you way more then skipping spirit and just going higher armor + stamina

    *Stamina > spirit especially for warrior, sure if you would be able to stack 30%spirit you'd have less downtime, keeping first aid on hand is better then gimping yourself.

    *Save every single copper - you will need money for weapon upgrades. Buy white weapons from the vendors as your money permits,

    No you don't buy from vendors or atleast try not to, unless you don't want to have a mount @ level 40.
    Buying weapons from vendors will leave you broke.

    *Just my 2cents, because these things don't make sense at all.


  • Initiate

    Tauren is probably the worst tank race for Horde


  • Founder Druid Alliance

    Warstomp and more health is pretty great for tanking. It's softer from a threat perspective compared to orcs but the troll racial is severely overhyped and overestimated.
