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.
Lul true on somewhat level about dungeons but there is always gonna be somebody runnin or u can get a group up always. In 1 min? Maybe not but u are not in a hurry so why care, do it next day etc. There is always gonna pop up some fresh guilds who do the content u want to do or can. Made me lul

Kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place in regards to this. I want to level at my own speed as fast as possible but my friend really wants to level with me too :3 still have time to decide on that tho..

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!
Yeah, there was so much more to the game than just being "first" at whatever objective. I think that's where those obessessing over 'world firsts' or 'realm firsts' lose sight of things. Sure, if that's their thing they can go right ahead, but to me... being 'first' in Classic means little to nothing when this has pretty much all been done by those who've came before in Vanilla.

Speeding through with the odd dungeon with friends. I've done the content to death for years on private. I just want to get to the portion of the game that I enjoy, which is endgame and high level PvP. I personally think the leveling process is overrated. Didnt like leveling the first time I did it. Have done it many many many times since. The only thing that salvages leveling for me is taking the odd break to do a dungeon with friends or ganking others as I level.

I've played private servers enough times to know where everything is by now, this time around my play time will be restricted, so because I have little choice, I have to speed level.

I have seen players speed-level hardcore mode... Miles ahead of everyone else and hardly leaving their toon logged off. Not something I could do.
I can't take time off work to play.

I find if I speed level for too long my mind gives up and I'll drift doing other things like professions, but there's nothing wrong with doing that because it's helpful later on, and I never run a dungeon if I have no quests for it or don't need gear.

Quite relaxed I'd say, I enjoy doing professions and such while leveling. If you get gold for Qs at level 60 then I'm probably going to take my time and try do all the Qs in the zones I start aswell.

I'm very torn. I really love the old school rpg style of reading your quest log and actually understanding what you're doing, even for the basic "kill a few wolves" quests it is just so much more engaging to have to work out the details yourself instead of just following an arrow.
On the other hand, I'm planning on leveling a few alts so I don't outpace my friends when they're not playing. I'm assuming I'll play a lot more than them. I'll probably speed level as much as possible on at least one of my alts.

Have first week off, where I will rush, after that and after I've hopefully reached lvl 35 - 40 during the first week I will be taking it slowly and lvling the final stretch in the evenings :)

35-40 should be reachable as a casual. I see me at 30 after 24h :p
My plan is to get to level 60 as soon as possible. Let's see, Saturday would be a dream - Sunday will probably be reality.

Slowest leveler in the wordl probably :D Always going around helping people, doing dungeons even multiple times, looking for rare recipes, gathering materials to craft them etc.

I'm never interested in reaching 60, because I don't raid at all. Everything else: that's my content :-)

That is why I love World of Warcraft, you can do so much stuff and the game fits to everyone.
You just have to find yourself!
For a while I had a low level rogue on private servers, so around level 20-30 with totally crazy gear and I just killed people and sometimes even have one shot mages and co.

Welcome to the World of Warcraft! :)

LOL, trying to be funny :lol:

No I am gonna enjoy everything about leveling that I can!
I am not gonna go too slow but I most definitely wont rush to miss things I missed in 2004!
And maybe remember things that I forgot!

So the moral of the story is don't drink and play WOW, you might be a human paladin leveling in Undercity, dont do it lol!

Doing a mix of both I guess. Taking steps to ensure a fast leveling experience because I want to be among the first that's ready to raid in my guild, but I'm not going to go absolutely insane and focus everything on leveling fast

I will most definitely play relaxed.

My goal is to level my leatherworking with my leveling, meaning I don't want to ding 60 before leatherworking is 300.

Might not be possible or just too slow, but it's a goal!

I'm planning on having two characters, a Warrior on the Alliance and a Rogue on the Horde. The first one will be my main, probably on a PvE server. The second one will be the one I play with my friends on a PvP server.

I'm planning on leveling the first one slow n' steady, enjoying every step, tanking all them dungeons and farming enough mats along the way to max out some money maker professions at 60, while the second one I see myself leveling pretty fast because it's gonna be part of a group, but since they can drop out at any moment I don't really care much for it.

I'm hoping to find a good guild or group of people to do quests, dungeons, world pvp, etc. as I level up. I find that playing with other people makes the game so much more enjoyable, that I don't even care if I am progressing efficiently. When I'm by myself, I tend to fall into the "grind, grind, grind...get to 60" mentality, which usually ends up with me feeling a little burnt out.

So, I'm going to do my best to relax, be more sociable, and just enjoy the game.

Definitely relaxed.

For me, contrary to retail, leveling in classic is actually to be enjoyed and an equally enjoyable and challenging part of the game. Not some boring chore to get over with quickly.

Expect the worst. Hope for the best.

It's gonna be a mix. Not gonna speedrun, but I want to try to get to 60 much quicker than back in Vanilla - which isn't hard, because back then it took me 9 or 10 months I think. I'll level gathering professions for gold, I'll do select dungeons once, maybe twice. Since my main is a Warrior, it's gonna be a slow process either way. And I'm trying to beat my best buddy to 60, since if I do, he will buy my epic mount :D

Gonna be taking it more chill while leveling my two planned alts, a mage for farming and a rogue for pvp. Mage a bit chill, since I want it to 60 so I can farm stuff to support my raiding addiction. With the rogue however, I'll pick a calm pace, see where my wanderlust takes me on the route to 60.

All of which kinda makes me wish I was back in school again like I was back then. All the free time....

I will be rushing to 60 because I enjoy the game at 60 much more than the game before 60. I want to maximize my time spent at 60 so I can maximize the fun I have playing the game. Yes, I know this means I will get through the content at max level faster and eventually I will run out of content to do. But I'm totally fine with that. I don't need to play this game forever. I'm fine with doing the content that is available, enjoying my time, and moving on when there's nothing more left to do.

How ya doin' mon?

I'd love to rush 60 but this time around my group of friends will be leveling slowly (kids, wives, jobs). That means I've got to work around that. I'm going to have a main I play with my wife, leveling with her, and alt that I'll try to keep in tandem with my pals, and my mage that I'll play when no one else is on. I'm sure it will take me 3 years to hit 60, but on the plus side I'll be stopping to smell every rose between here and the blasted lands.

I wont have much time to play at the beginning because of an increased workload, gym etc. so i will level a slowly, but i will play efficiently, dungeons once and with all quests, skinning/maby herbalism. I will save cooking and fishing for later.
