[Leveling] Joan’s Leveling Guide, Chapter 1 Part 1 – Human lvl 1-12


Joan’s Leveling Guide, Chapter 1 Part 1 – Human lvl 1-12


This guide starts at level 1 when you create a new character for the humans, you can run someone from the other starts to follow this guide if you really want to.

I wont take the quests that’s specific for the class, but I recommend you to do them. They are most often worth the trouble.

I won’t say “sell and repair” or “visit the class trainer” just do it when you think it’s proper, but try to keep them when you are in the area of a vendor or a trainer.

This guide is maybe not the fastest way to level but it’s a fun and works…

Color key, as follow:

  • Level
  • Location
  • Quest
  • NCP’s
  • Items / Mobs


When I’ve done this guide I’ve used the add on “Titan panel” witch is very useful and I recommend you to use it.

Titan panel: It’s a very useful addon with may different features. But it’s mostly because I sometimes use locations in my guide with coordinates (x,y), and the panel shows them. But it’s also shows you a lot of other things. Download the lates version here.
