So, from what I've seen so far the beta is very different to private servers/repacks. How much do you think this will change your routes?
Ye quite a bit, the starting zone will obviously be packed so questing 1-10 with a normal route will not be possible, Im thinking that a 3 man group that does exploring 1-3 and then some grinding /certain quests to 10, then you will hopefully be ahead enough to jump into your normal route

I've read/listened to some of the people on Beta that leveling can be 30% longer based on things like mob armor/resistance values and mob spell/ability mechanics that were not correct on private servers. It makes sense looking back at my old vanilla 60 timeframes and other people I played with. @Judgement mentioned the increase in other people in starting zones which should also be considered regardless of layering.

Yeh we definitely won't see any/many sub 2hour level 10s on launch. The population and the mob difficulty will completely cripple speed leveling. Ahead of the curve after level 10+ it will get better, but the mob difficulty will still have impact on expect times.

There's quite obviously some slow-downs in beta due to congestion in starter areas so run times aren't easy to assess yet.

Is anyone able to confirm some simple stuff like XP/Quest XP values compared to repack?

Edit: Nvm! Found them in Teeb's thread about beta

@Ahmp wow dude that's an amazing time! Well done! Blew my time out of the water haha. I'm so happy I was wrong about Dwarf Hunters :lol: Also thanks for posting the video, I intend to study it well.

Edit: holy moly that's some nice juggling there.

Code: Select all

/script TargetLastTarget()
This can help you guys a lot. The exact same coding might not work for Classic but I’d imagine this function will certainly be available.

No one post them here yet. I think some streamers did try it. There are still not enough people but sooner or later the speedrun times will appear.

Worth mentioning that Joana is now in the closed beta, so we’ll see a lot of new strategy come out of that. Hopefully it won’t be long before the runners posting here get in too :smile:

There is no template for duo speedrun as of now but I think its nice addition.
If you want to take part in leaderboard, can you tell me on which server you did it so I can categorize it correctly?
It's lock+priest, am I right?

@Aliencowfrog mind sharing your route? Extremely impressive time, gj! Shaman has a huge upperhand in the tauren zone due to all the spell casters. Add me on disc if you'd like! oddiz4u#7729

I'm not sure if he's started practicing yet, but Joana has access to the beta.

I’m on the closed beta and an initial rough run through only netted some minor changes to 30. However I’ve worked my guide on heavily corrected vanilla values not a standard repack. Speed running this week now I am home!
