Warrior leveling guide 1-60 for Classic WoW

Leveling as a warrior is really tough in wow classic / vanilla. Check out our warrior guide to help you during this hard time. Best spec, best gear, be the the first warrior to reach lvl 60!

1. Warrior class overview

Mise à jour le 18/06/2019

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 dependence 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.

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

Warriors are the quintessential fearless fighters on the battlefield, and their pure martial prowess inspires courage in allies and despair in enemies. Experts in all manner of melee weaponry and possessing incredible physical strength and skill, Warriors are perfectly suited to serve as frontline combatants and battlefield commanders.

Choc martial : Useful for AOE Stun in PvE / PvP
Endurance : More health = More survivability

Horde PvE / PvP DPS : Orc

 Blood Fury - Burst burst burst ! Can use it with trinkets.

Horde PvP : Undead

 Volonté des reprouvés : One of the best PvP Racials, you'll be the nightmare of warlock / priest.

3. General Tips for leveling as a warrior

Here are some tips to progress quickly during your leveling as a warrior in Classic Wow.

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

Leveling Speed Equation

Leveling Speed can be broken down into three pieces: Travel Time, In Combat Time, and Out of Combat Time (Regen). The sum of these three pieces equates to your leveling speed.

Travel Time refers to the time you spend moving from objective to objective out in the open world. In Combat Time is the amount of time you spend fighting. Out of Combat Time refers to the amount of mandatory time you spend recovering eating, drinking, healing, bandaging, etc.

war

Travel Time is what you will be doing the most of, thus talents or abilities that increase movement speed will likely have the highest impact on leveling speed.The more important concept is this: Shaving off seconds of downtime between pulls is as valuable as shaving off seconds of In Combat Time. When you think about it this way, Damage Mitigation and Regenerative talents / abilities / stats have almost offensive properties and should potentially be valued equally to stats that increase damage.


The Hamstring Method:

From level 8 onwards (when you get Hamstring Rank 1) you can start utilizing the Hamstring method to mitigate damage against your enemies.

Mobs out in the open world generally have a higher movement speed and higher attack speed than you. If you were to stand still and trade hits with a mob back and forth you may end up trading 1 of your Auto attacks for 2+ of theirs. If executed properly, The Hamstring Method allows you to trade 1 hit for 1 hit with a target, drastically reducing your damage taken while not reducing your damage at all since you are monitoring your natural auto attacks with the swing timer.


Astuce : TODO

The Hamstring Method step by step breakdown:

  1. Auto Attack then Apply Hamstring to a target
  2. Strafe through the target out of range of their hit box while your auto attack is cooling down
  3. Re-engage that target with another auto attack and ability as your swing timer resets
  4. Maintaining uptime on Hamstring when it is efficient to do so

Side Strafing through the target is preferable to walking directly through them as exposing your back to an enemy will make you susceptible to getting dazed.

4. Useful leveling warrior 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.

About Dual Wielding:

Now, lots of people will tell you to never dual wield while leveling. Why? Because, when you dual wield, your hit chance is greatly reduced, and your offhand only does 50% of its normal damage. Since hit rating gear is practically nonexistent until level 40+, you'll be missing lots of attacks if you dual-wield.

...but, in my experiences, I found dual wielding to be fine, but only if you're Fury. I found that having two weapon swings meant having twice as many chances to crit, which led to lots more Flurry procs. At level 50 with two blue 1h swords, my kill speed was just about the same as when I used an epic 2h axe. And I wasn't even specced into the offhand damage talent. If I got a good string of crits, I could smack mobs down in 15-20 seconds, and easily hit Bloodthirst every time it came off CD.

On the topic of Bloodthirst, dual wielding lets you actually use up all 6 charges of Bloodthirst, leading to a lot of extra healing. I found that when dual wielding, I could kill 2 or 3 extra mobs before having to eat/bandage, compared to using a 2h. The healing from Bloodthirst may not seem like a lot, but it adds up over time.

So, if you happen to have two good 1h weapons, and are Fury specced, don't be afraid to try out dual wielding. Some people swear by it, and I can see why. Getting misses/parries with 2h weapon is cancer, and having two weapon swings for two different chances at crit, can really help smooth out your damage and make it less random. If you're still skeptical, I'd suggest trying it out once you get Thrash Blade, or if you happen to have a Flurry Axe. With really sick 1h weapons, dual-wielding can definitely feel great.


Tips / Tricks about talents:

  • To save money, don't train higher ranks of Overpower or Cleave until 60. The bonus damage from higher ranks is minuscule compared to your weapon damage. (Example: Overpower rank 1 does 5 extra damage, Overpower max rank does....35 extra damage.
  • Same goes for spells like Thunderclap and Shield Bash. The damage increases a bit, but the slowing effect / silence duration remains the same for every single rank.
  • Don't train Rend past rank 3 or so. It's fairly useless past level 30, save for PvP things like preventing rogues/druids from re-stealthing.

7. DPS Cycle for leveling as a warrior

Leveling 1-10

  • If you are ever at 100% HP you are likely misplaying - push the limits of your combat efficiency.
  • Train First Aid ASAP
  • Use whatever weapon has the highest DPS regardless of type (polearm, staff, 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 the Defensive stance class quest.

Here is the cycle of dps to respect for these levels.

warrior cycle dps 1-10

Leveling 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).
warrior cycle dps 1-10

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

Here is the cycle of dps to respect for these levels.

8. Best gear for leveling as a warrior

Stats 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

Stat priority lvl 1-30 (Sustain Priority)Spirit -> Strength -> Agi -> Stamina -> Intellect

Stat priority lvl 40-59 (Crit is Priority)Agi -> Strength -> Stamina -> Spirit -> Intellect

Strength (often abbreviated STR) has the following effects:

  • Increases attack power with melee weapons, warriors gain 2 melee attack power per point of strength.
  • Strength does not improve the chance to block but it increases the amount of damage that can be blocked with a shield.

Agility (often abbreviated AGI) has the following effects:

  • Increases chance to score a critical hit with a weapon. You gain 1% critical chance increased for each 20 points of agility.
  • Increases chance to dodge attacks. For every 20 points in agility you will gain 1% chance to dodge.

Attack Power :Attack power (AP) increases your base DPS by 1 for every 14 attack power. For example, an AP of 28 will give you 2 DPS.

Pvp hitcaps

  • Melee, 2h or 1h + shield: 5%
  • Melee, dual wield: 24%
