DKs level up much easier than all the other classes : /

#1B1g_ClownPosted 1/19/2013 5:59:49 PM
Leveling 85-90 couldn't be easier. Still rocking ds tier(some heroic) and using upgraded spear of xuen, and I tear thru quest npcs.

Currently level 89 and I have yet to die as frost while pulling 5-8 quest fodder. Out of the few dungeons I have done, I do 55kish dps while everyone else does just barely 20k.

My question is, why doesn't blizz make all the other classes on par with dk soloing?

I dreaded leveling my rogue to 85. Mage was eh. Hunter was easy, but kinda slow. Priest was easy and slow. Pally was slow. Shaman was lolslow and a headache. Monk went by somewhat fast due to xp bonus, but was squishy. Warrior was fast. Druid seems fast but cuz of op xuen spear and heroic ds tier too. Missing a class but I'm sure it was slow... :c

Only other class I leveled as fast as my dk was my desto lock. Before the soul consumption glyph nerf ofc. Pulled endlessly, as many mobs were in sight, and never came close to dieing.

It's because you're using an UPGRADED SPEAR OF XUEN, for the most part. Combine that with frost's good AoE burst and heroic tier gear and you're golden. As a comparison, I didn't find my spear until level 88, and this was before upgrades; going from a 430ish mace to that was 10k DPS.

My ret paladin does more or less the same thing, and she's in mostly questing gear.

My warrior was using the same wep as DK but it was still slow in comparison. Keep in mind too that heroic DS gear is ilvl 410 gear, the same gear I have on my alts using blue quality BoEs.

dk's may have the easiest everything, but warriors and pallies have it just as easy. all plate classes can just mass pull and work them down.

i find warrior to be almost as fast as dk. lots and lots of aoe, self heals, etc.. it's no dk but it's close.
if you can manage to get two of the cleaver of ka'roz swords, you'll have enough crit to be at 20% for all of pandaria if you're keeping your gear from dungeons and questing up. you'll go blinding fast as fury this way.

Well I hate to admit it but a good part of why they feel easier to level, effectively skipping 70 levels worth of leveling content is due to what he said. The other reasoning aspects you handed perfectly. :)
