So disappointed. I stayed up way too late to squeeze in a run and try harded as fuck.
Literally 1 second improvement....
If u want to try some new route feel free to add me on discord, i got a very interesting new route in durotar, u might be able to save a few mins. However i'm not sure how well it works for hunters since i didn't try :p

Around 1:45 seems good, and the point about earthshock is on point. I'm more worried about how fast you get to Crossroads and transition to doing barrens quests.
The transition from mulgore to barrens really isn't that bad. I end my mulgore run by handing in "the venture co." + "supervisor fiszsprocket" on the road before CT. Then it's just a short run to CT, grab the FP etc. Run about two mins north then die past the bridge so that I res in XR.

In my experience on fresh servers any time you lose getting to XR is negligible compared to the time you gain from routing in mulgore vs durotar/tirisfal.

Anyone tried doing Tauren runs? Ive seen some mulgore screenshots recently with really sick level 10 times. And considering how under represented the race is, and it having only 4 playing classes, I feel like it might be the best one for launch.
My first attempt at speedrunning. Tauren Druid is pretty painful, as you can only cast one wrath before you're OOM at low levels.
Level 10 was around 1h50m, but didn't get a screenshot. Sloppy run, all things considered.

Another run on the repack. This time with a paladin. Died twice.

One thing I noticed on this run was that I was consistently hitting levels earlier in the route than I was with other classes because I was grinding more mobs due to the increased uptime of paladins. We kill slowly but there's very little downtime in between.

Just did another 1-10 in elwynn with paladin. Trying to get a better time and I did decently well. This was done on Northdale.
It was in no way a perfect run - I died twice to being a little cocky when bubble was on CD, and since there is quite a lot of people leveling on northdale atm I had to wait for respawns on a few mobs here and there, should be able to shave off another 5+mins with a better run.

Nice runs all! Will get this updated when I can.

@ivodeb without screenshot and confirmation on your exact time I can’t add it to the leaderboards, unfortunately, but if you do another I’ll be happy to add you!

You guys are giving me a run for my money haha. Now im in the competitive spirit, i'll try another 1-10 when I get back from the gym here shortly tonight. Impressive times.

Hey guys, I'm pretty new here. Found this site and wanted to start practicing for classic launch so I'll be doing 1-10 and 1-20 speed runs (Horde side). Anyone have any real good tips? Last I played was 2 months after Northdale released and I leveled a few characters there, but all I used was Joana's guide or Vanilla guide. Do you guys use routes that heavily deviate from Joana's? If anyone wants to toss me a route (or not, i know some like to keep theirs secret, and they can take a lot of work to make) or some tips, I'll gladly try them out. I'll be practicing rogue, warrior, and mage going orc/orc/troll respectively. Hope to see yall around!

Nice run @Judgement ! Sounds like you'd be faster than me in similar conditions (repack). Were there any major differences in your route from mine?

In other news, I've been doing some theorycrafting, discussion, and testing, and I think I'm going to pivot away from Human and be a Dwarf Paladin for speedleveling purposes. My rationale is as follows:

  1. Dun Morogh is a faster zone than Elwynn Forest
  2. I'm going to be duo leveling with a Lock, and Gnome Lock is stronger early game due to +int
  3. getting to Darkshore is quicker from Dun Morogh than Elwynn

@dopedcamel what class did you intend to run? I’ve tested quite a few different routes for 1-10 as Orc/Troll Hunter and Joanna’s route is a good base route to start with and make adjustments. Things are a lot different for other classes, though.

It will surely be either a rogue, warrior, or mage. I've yet to decide. Mage gets me going a bit because I love to farm money in games and twink out characters, and mage is just really nice with that easy mara/DM farming with nobody to contest it. Warrior/rogue is likely my ideal "main" simply due to the DPS. I'll probably try a few runs on each and make a split second decision when classic comes closer.

Also, does this place have a discord?

@dopedcamel first post has videos for both Horde Rogue and Warrior runs 1-10. Haven’t really seen any Mage runs for Horde side and haven’t tried personally. There’s a popular Alliance Mage speedrunner and from comments in his videos he seems to believe Undead times can compete with Gnome (as fast as 1:25 1-10), for what it’s worth.

@dopedcamel I'm also gonna release a 1-20 run too. Can consistently do 1-10 orc rogue in 1h45m.
Not sure how low i can get 20 yet tho.

Everything should be up to date once again.
40 total entries and nearly 10k views on this thread in ~3 months! Extremely impressed with some of these times, great job all. Keep em coming, I'll do my worst attempt at keeping the leaderboards up to date! :mrgreen:

Hello @vamp, I havent had time to watch your video yet, will do when I come home from work and compare. I will do my run again later this week and record it aswell.
If Dun Morogh is faster I can't really say, but overall were probably talking about mere minutes here which in the long run 1-60 wont make any difference really.

Any chance someone can help with this lights hope repack? I seem to be starting the right files and all, but after I login with admin/admin, it suggest the realm Lights Hope which is greyed out and unclickable. Unable to create any characters or anything. Haven't found anyone else with this problem, any ideas?

@dopedcamel did you change your realmlist to the repack appropriate one?

Have you started MySQL.bat, realmd.exe and mangos.exe? What about your realm.wtf config file, is that pointing to the correct IP address as per broltanias instructions?

Uploaded video of a new 1-10 Human Paladin run on Northdale. 1hr33min. Working on 10-20, will hopefully get uploaded in a day or two.



@Vemp I watched your video and we have a very different approach on elwynn forest. Who's better? Hard to say until we know how respawns on mobs and items will work in classic.

Your welcome to watch my run and give me feedback if you think I could do something better.

Anyone know if there's a difference between the way your learn hunter pet skills on the repack and the way it was back in Vanilla/is going to be on Classic? Currently it takes you 1 or 2 kills with the new skill to learn it. So was it the same way back in the day or did it take longer?

@Massivechonk


@~2:05 it looks like it takes him slightly longer to learn Claw 2, but not much (second mob).
