Which playstyle do you think your gonna go with when summer begins?

Speed leveling:

  • Leveling alone.
  • Skipping dungeons.
  • Ignoring PVP.
  • Outlevel your friends.
  • Saving professions for later.
Relaxed leveling:
  • Helping strangers and friends.
  • Doing most dungeons several times.
  • Exploring.
  • Leveling professions.
  • Leveling in groups.
  • PVP.

I don't want to rush the experience of leveling, I've waited 14 years to experience a fresh official vanilla WoW server, I'm going to savour it. Dungeons, world PvP, helping friends and guildies. I get the appeal of speedrunning, but not as a first character on fresh blizzard server and not to get to end game content ASAP, leveling is a fun social activity and I can't wait!

I love the leveling process so I will savor it. I have no interest in PvP but I am looking forward to leveling my professions with my character and doing most of the dungeons, hopefully helping some people. I will be playing alone given that I don't have any friends but if I'm lucky maybe I will meet someone.

I personally want to rush my leveling experience on my first toon because I want to be a MT for a higher end guild but I also want to level with my friends so I am torn between matching their pace and just going full out.

One issue that impedes me though with my friends is that I currently live in Thailand and they are all East Coast, USA so our hours will never match anyways. Because of this I might just bang out my toon as fast as I can.

In my opinion speed leveling is the relaxed leveling.
Unlike RE or Sekiro, or whatever, the wow "speed run" isn't intense at all.
I rather get a head of the pack, have a plan and coast to 60 instead of having to level in the contested zones with a bunch of other players.

I'm aiming for something in the middle. I want to be efficient with my leveling, but I'm going to give some extra time to my favorite dungeons and exploring so I don't get burnt out on questing.

That is exactly what I plan on doing come release. There are some instances which are either not worth it or I simply dont like them and I wont bother doing them for the sole purpose of "doing them all". On the other hand I am really looking forward to doing instances like SFK, SM or ZF. Being a healer this time around should provide a nice change to leveling now and then.

I really like World PvP, but I am considering starting on a PvE server nevertheless as I hate being constantly ganked by high-level players. At least on some of the private servers there are zones that are just unplayable because level 60s roam around killing and corpse camping lowbies.

I am in the same boat as you two guys. I want to be efficient but not fast. I do not want to burn out. I like doing the dungeons, save for mount, maybe even level up alt when I am not in the mood for main and have those two cooperate.

I am all in for the relaxed levelling, I'll just have to be sure I am in line with the rest of my guild so we can start 60 dungeons approximately at the same time.
Plus, I am going to play rogue, so, levelling is going to be slow and crappy anyway. :oops:

But...who knows... I have a one-week holiday planned in mid-July. If the release happens to be in the same period, I might still end up playing an unhealthy amount of hours and level quite quickly :lol:

I'm a stop-and-smell-the-flowers kind of gamer already, and I also really want to savor the experience, so this summer I'm probably gonna take the slowness to a whole new level :mrgreen:
Gonna take my time to reexperience all the quests, look in all the nooks and crannys, and do my professions as I'm leveling.

Yeah I'm not aiming for a server first or anything even near that, my goal is just to stay ahead of the average player. Mainly so I can hopefully avoid some ganking :confused:

I'm going to try my best to level in a relaxed fashion. This way I can enjoy everything the game has to offer. However I usually get competitive / don't want to be left out, so if other people I know start cruising by my level I might have to catch up in whatever way possible.

Leveling is like sex: the ending is the best part but you'll want to take a long time to get there.

Yeah, it's just as silly as asking "casual or min/max?"

You know that most players fall somewhere in between, nothing's black or white etc.

In my experience, casual players don't enjoy this game any more or less than any other category of players, they just say to themselves that they are taking it slow to enjoy it better because they are envious of the other category of players and can't commit as much as them.

To answer most of the casuals here: you don't want to fall behind the server in terms of leveling. People aren't going to rush Scholomance and BRD 24/7 forever. Once the large bulk of players gets to 60, they spam those dungeons for a few weeks and then they're done, no reason to go back there and waste anotger 2-3 hours - and you won't see another bulk of players as large as the one from the game launch hitting 60 and spamming dungeons all the time.

Same thing with raiding - you think once people are done with 3 tiers of raiding they're going to prefer a pre-raid BiS to a guy that's been raiding for a few months? Unlikely.

Same thing with low level dungeons, elite quests etc.

I am going to take it slow. Experiencing everything all over again and leveling professions at the same time.

I will only play and level one class and since level 60 is the end and we know all the content, I am going to take my time doing it all.

I don't need or want to do everything in one month.

Slow and steady enjoys the race! :-)

Aim to tank as many dungeons I can during leveling. Focus on the community!

Also, ain’t a student no more. Got them obligations now..

In vanilla I did things relaxed and loved it. When Burning Crusade came out, I was one of the first ten people on my server to hit 70. That was fun too. But my best leveling memories from Vanilla were all the complexities of getting 5 man groups together. I see no point in skipping the best parts, since my other favorite parts were the Honor Grind, and world pvp, which I won't be able to do well in until I have my pvp gear (warlocks scale too well with gear, and don't start off very good).

I am a relaxed player myself but this experience will be even more relaxed and different for me. I can only play a couple hours a day to keep my playing time in the off peak hours. Satellite internet sucks but at least I can play the game so I'm happy about that. It's going to be fun again and I can't wait for my daily short fix.
