New Speed Leveling Record - DesMephisto Reaches Level 50 in 3 Hours 33 Minutes
06.11.2020 um 05:26
Mere days after reaching
level 50 in 4 hour and 17 minutes
has once again broken his own records, speeding through the
Pre-patch leveling process in an astounding
3 hours and 33 minutes
! 44 minutes faster than the last trip, this run took full advantage of the
16 Year Anniversary
event buffs to level much faster than normal. Even if you aren't a speed leveler, it's a great example of how great the

buff and Darkmoon Faire
buffs are for leveling.
Darkmoon Faire -> Elwynn Forest -> Redridge Mountains -> Duskwood -> Warlords Intro -> Shadowmoon Valley -> Loch Modan -> Gorgrond
Death Knight was again chosen due to Warrior losing some of its early speed in the Pre-patch changes, although this time as an Alliance Dark Iron Dwarf rather than a Horde Vulpera, taking advantage of
to save several minutes of travel time. The route itself is a little more convoluted, but still sticks to the same principles of starting in
before moving into
Warlords of Draenor
: beginning with 100
to turn into 10
from the Darkmoon Faire, activating
, and moving through Elwynn Forest, Redridge Mountains, and Duskwood, before going into the WoD intro scenario and Shadowmoon Valley, traveling back to Loch Modan, and then finishing up in Gorgrond. While normally this extra travel would eat precious time,
, and the normal
almost entirely eliminate that downtime.
The full 3 hour, 33 minute run

buffs are of course crucial to these abnormally short times and won't stick around forever, but the route is very strong and will likely continue to be optimized even once those buffs are gone. A lot of additional preparation goes into these runs, which can be seen on
DesMephisto's min-max Heirloom Guide
. Crafting with
Relics of the Past
can also play a major role, as it can create items even better than heirlooms.
Fast as the run was, it could have been even faster, as this run was beset by many more setbacks than the last, including PvP issues right at the end, which are always a concern on live servers. Still, coming in nearly 45 minutes faster than the previous record, it show just how much room there is to optimize and improve even these extraordinarily fast leveling times. Even if you're not a speed leveler though, the process is very quick now and easily doable within 9-12 hours.
