The vanilla WoW Horde leveling guide you see on this site was originally made back in 2006 by Joana (AKA Mancow, or FuriousPaul).  The guides have been tweaked many times over the years to make things "faster".  The leveling guides were made because of all the messages I got from people asking me how I was able to level up so quickly on new realms.  I was first to level 60 on 7 different realms (3 with Mancow and 4 with Joana), even winning Blizzard's "First to Level 50" contest they held back in 2006.


Gold in WoW has value based on the time it takes a player to earn it. The various methods of farming gold, such as growing herbs, yield maybe 20,000 gold per hour. That means at a price of 100,000 gold, a token represents about five hours of grinding, or offers a wage of $3 per hour. The idea of gold being worth a certain amount per hour is a useful way of framing this discussion, in fact.
So, the initial leveling process is probably the longest it has been in an expansion in a long time. My first play through, it took me about 12 hours to finish every single quest in every single zone. Needless to say, due to leveling 7 times, my last leveling was done by a ret pally and took me just over 8 hours and completed every quest in the Horde zones. There are a few tips I would like to give for leveling in BFA.
So you're strapped for cash in World of Warcraft, and you need gold fast. Maybe there's an epic mount on the Auction House, or you're about to raid and need to finish enchanting your armor, or you're short on gold for glyphs. Whatever the reason, there's plenty of quick and mostly painless ways to farm up gold in WoW. Let's look at a few of the best ways.
There are professions you can train in to make money in the game. You can be an herbalist to pick useful plants; an alchemist to make potions; a miner to mine ore; a blacksmith to craft armor; a jewelcrafter, who can cut gems that can be socketed into certain items to augment them; or an enchanter, who can enchant items to have bonus stats or effects.
In 2015, Blizzard started letting players buy gold from each other using WoW Tokens, to try to control the process and mitigate damage. “Time is money, friend — but sometimes one is harder to come by than the other,” Blizzard says on the official page. “Now World of Warcraft players can use the WoW Token in exchange for game time or Battle.net Balance!”

Welcome to the Ultimate, Unofficial Classic WoW Horde Leveling Guide. With this guide, you'll save days off of your leveling time, getting you to 60 in the fastest time possible! This guide is designed for new players and veterans alike, and you'll need it when faced with the difficulty of the original World of Warcraft. This guide contains both an outline of leveling by questing area and character level, as well as tips, tricks, secrets, and advanced techniques to speed up your leveling! If you want to quickly get into level 60 raids and dungeons, you'll need this guide! Why “World of Warcraft Classic”? Like many of you, I have fond memories of the original WoW and its Burning Crusade Expansion. I remember a time before instant gratification, achievements, and cross-realm group finder, where your reputation, skill as a player, and social connections mattered. When faced with the challenges of Azeroth, we all had to make friends and work together. With the return of classic WoW, we can all have that again: friendships that last beyond the game, instead of gear that is recycled with each content patch. Classic Wow is about quality over quantity. I have nearly 200 mounts on regular WoW, yet none feel as rewarding as my original level 60 mount. With this series of Guides, you can become that legend again or become a new legend, in the most important MMORPG of our time.

As you're leveling, I generally recommend you just follow the natural flow of the progression through each zone. They're laid out fairly reasonably. But don't be afraid to hop around, especially if you're near a quest objective. You shouldn't actually need ALL of the zones listed to reach 62. Pick the ones you like best. It's much more important to simply be as focused as possible and flow from one quest to the next.
