Classic WoW: 13 Best Places to Level from 40 to 55, Ranked

A lot happens to a character in World of Warcraft Classicafter hitting that level 40 milestone. The most obvious being that players finally have a mount, and that 40% speed boost is great, but then they also have to deal with having no money and fewer choices for grinding.

RELATED: Classic WoW: 5 Ways To Win Battlegrounds & 5 Ways To Die

Classic WoW is famous for having an uncomfortable lull in questing at this point. Battlegrounds don't offer any experience points in earlier versions of the game, either. So before players sign out, here are some ideas for ideal zones to progress between the notorious level 40 and 55 speedbump.

Updated by Kristy Ambrose on March 20th, 2021: The confirmation of the upcoming Burning Crusade expansion is great for lowbies and maxed-out characters, but unfortunately not a lot improves for mid-level players. However, some zones in old Azeroth will have some new lore and related quests. Plus, all those raiders who used to farm in your zones are going to be busy with Outland stuff. Here are three additional places to take your mid-level 'toon.

13 Maraudon (Levels 30 to 60)

Whether or not anyone likes this dungeon's aesthetics is beside the point. It's a great place to level for a variety of reasons, and players can run this dungeon from level 30 right up until the endgame.

To start with, it's huge. There's plenty to slay here for XP, even if the wide variety of quests available are done, but be prepared to commit to about 3 hours of game time for a full clear. Maraudon is also a great spot for farming resources, and we need money to level, too.

12 The Swamp of Sorrows (35-45)

It's a depressing place to be, with less scenery than other parts of Azeroth, but it's still worth a visit during this part of the leveling process. There are few quests here, but enough to keep you busy while you grind up your fishing or herbalism.

Players can explore the eastern part of the zone to find the Sunken Temple or head north to see what happens to Draenei who turn away from the Light. It's also conveniently close to two other zones related to both your level and Outland lore, the Badlands and Deadwind Pass.

11 Feralas (Levels 40 to 50)

This is a zone that balances leveling both the character and their professions. There are lots of herbs, leather, and minerals to be found in the lush hills of Feralas, along with a long list of quests. High-level trainers populate these cities and vendors often sell obscure recipes.

Some of these are lengthy chains that eventually lead to Dire Maul, the centerpiece of this ancient zone, where a few pre-raid BiS items drop.

10 Uldaman (Levels 40 to 60)

It's worth a visit just for the history, and not just the ancient Dwarf lore and Azerothian creation stories. If anyone has played retail WoW and experienced dungeons like Ulduar in Northrend, Uldaman will look strangely familiar. Plus, players can grind here for 20 whole levels, there's just that much to do.

RELATED: 10 Best & Worst Classic WoW Dungeons

Lots of great items drop here, and there are chain quests galore, including a few that start with things to pick up or find. Even the digging area that surrounds the entrance holds a few interesting secrets.

9 Tanaris (Levels 40 to 50)

It looks like a wide expanse of nothing, but there's a lot to do in Tanaris and even more if someone knows where to look. Other than the variety of quests that everyone can get, several professions house their high-end trainers and quests in the main city, Gadgetzan.

Visit the coastal town of Steamwheedle Port for quests connected to the Hinterlands, Zul'Furrak, and even Zul'Gurub. The dungeon of Zul'Farrak is in the western corner, a stepping stone to the endgame raid of Zul'Gurub.

8 Azshara (Levels 45 to 55)

At first glance, it's obvious that this is one of the unfinished zones of the game because there isn't very much here. However, it's crammed with resources and XP once the player is done with the very few quests available.

RELATED: Ranking The 15 Best MMORPGs Of All Time

Herbalists, miners, leatherworkers, and fishers can spend a few levels in Azshara honing their professions. There are humanoid monsters that drop cloth, which gives the tailors something to do. Several classes will also be visiting Azshara to complete their high-level quests.

7 Searing Gorge (Levels 45 to 50)

Players are clearing a path to Blackrock Mountain when they work through Searing Gorge. There aren't exactly a huge amount of quests here, but the ones here are tough and long, with some leading into the nearby dungeons.

This zone is popular with miners and blacksmiths trying to grind rep with the Thorium Brotherhood. Five of the most notorious dungeons in the game are located between this zone and the Burning Steppes next door, and three of them are raids.

6 Blackrock Depths (47-60)

It's the only dungeon in Blackrock Mountain that isn't a raid, and it's also one of the biggest instances in Classic WoW. It houses a massive jail, a gladiator's ring, Azeroth's best tavern, and the city of Blackrock Depths itself. Certain areas can only be reached with keys and attunement to the Molten Core raid nearby requires visiting its lowest, most dangerous caverns.

There is a myriad of quests here, some that start in the instance, and several of them award BiS items you can take to the other instances in this mountain. There's enough to do to keep a party busy for some time.

5 Zul'Farrak (Levels 44 to 60)

This dungeon deserves an entry of its own. There are lots of quests to do here, which is an obvious draw, but this dungeon is also connected to others through the lore and items.

RELATED: 10 Coolest Hidden Zones in World of Warcraft

The quests in ZF might have been links that started in the Hinterlands that will eventually lead players to higher-level dungeons like Sunken Temple and eventually the Zul'Gurub raid.

4 Felwood (Levels 48 to 55)

This is an ideal zone for leveling, even if it isn't exactly one of the prettier ones. It's essential to visit to grind rep with the Timbermaw Tribe and the Cenarion Circle by killing various monsters and collecting certain items.

Herbalists and warlocks will appreciate this zone more than others. It stays a popular herb-farming route for characters even at max level. Warlocks visit Feralas to finish a portion of their high-level class quests.

3 The Blasted Lands (45-55)

There's a lonely orc ghost standing by the road leading south from the Swamp of Sorrows, and it's one of the few quests you'll find throughout the zone. The long quest chain he sends you on barely even takes place in the Blasted Lands, but it includes some interesting lore that's tied to the upcoming expansion.

RELATED: Classic WoW: 5 Ways To Win Battlegrounds & 5 Ways To Die

The area is decent for farming items like Demic Runes, which are handy for mana users and a nice way to earn gold. However, the quest chain that takes you through the Dark Portal, which is located in the southern half of this zone, isn't available until level 55.

2 Stranglethorn Vale (Levels 30 to 45)

What makes Stranglethorn Vale a tough choice is a well-deserved reputation as PVP heaven. Or hell, depending on a player's preference. If anyone can get past that, however, there are a myriad of quests available here for both factions. Players can visit this zone as early as level 30 and stay until level 45.

This is one of the earliest zones that players can visit, easily accessible for both factions via boat. Players can also participate in the Stranglethorn Fishing Contest and grind rep with the local pirates while they work through the zone.

1 Temple of Atal’Hakkar (Levels 50 to 60)

At the higher end of the leveling spectrum, there's the Temple of Atal’Hakkar. By now the player has defeated the forces of Zul'Farrak, and now it's time to take on the denizens of another Troll temple.

Love it or hate it, the instance also known as the Sunken Temple is one of the best places to level a character when it reaches 50. There are several class quests that finish here in the late 40s along with high-level enemies that yield leather and cloth.

40 wow level

World of Warcraft leveling guide: How to get from 1-50 fast

Planning on jumping into Shadowlands and looking for a WoW leveling guide? The level squish that arrived with World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has reduced the maximum level from 120 to 60. And along with that massive change, WoW's latest expansion has completely overhauled the leveling process for characters between level 1-50. The good news is that it now takes much less time to reach current Shadowlands content than it would have done without the level squish.

It's not just the fact that there are fewer levels to grind overall—the new leveling experience gives you a choice of the content you want to play through to get to level 50. This new system was first introduced with the WoW 9.0.1 pre-patch, but if you've just recently returned to the MMO to start your adventure into the Shadowlands, this WoW leveling guide shows you the most efficient way to get to level 50. 

WoW leveling guide: Get from level 1-50 fast


New characters start at level one for the basic array of races, or level 10 for allied races. Creating a new allied-race character requires you to reach max level on another character and complete a quest line specific to that race.

At level one, brand-new WoW players are sent by default to Exile's Reach, the excellent new-player starting experience on a self-contained island. Players who have other leveled-up characters have a choice between Exile's Reach or the traditional leveling area for their new character's race. Hint: The correct choice is always Exile's Reach. The island is a well-paced and engaging adventure that packs ten levels into an hour or two of your time.


At level 10, both experienced players and new ones are given the starting quests for the latest Battle for Azeroth expansion. If you choose to follow them, they'll lead you to the islands of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, where you'll see the most recent chapter of WoW's history. These more modern questlines are ideal for new players, as transitioning from them to Shadowlands zones for levels 50-60 will be relatively seamless.

For veteran players who have seen BfA, your options are even more interesting. All players can swap to whatever expansion they like to level in using Chromie, the time-travelling gnome-dragon. Chromie is located in Stormwind near the Stormwind Embassy for Alliance players, while Horde players will find him in Orgrimmar near the Orgrimmar Embassy.

Talking with Chromie gives you a choice of all the previous Warcraft expansions. Each will take you from 10-50, or you can choose to jump around between them.

Choosing an expansion

Which expansion should you choose? To some degree, that depends on your priorities. You start in these zones as a tiny level 10 with the slow ground-mount riding skill. You pick up the epic riding skill at 20 and flying at 30 (with no special attunements required for any expansion's zones). This means you're going to be moving slowly for a while.

If you're determined to level quickly, Warlords of Draenor or Legion offer great quest density, meaning you don't have to run far and therefore tend to level faster. Legion's also a terrific expansion in terms of story and zone design. But Battle for Azeroth isn't terrible for quest density either (particularly the Drustvar zone for Alliance and Nazmir for Horde) while offering the most-modern combination of quest mechanics and story integration.

If you just want to get lost in the story and meander for 40 levels, consider Wrath of the Lich King, which packs some of the best lore in the game into a single expansion, but can be slow to level in. Or try the underrated Mists of Pandaria, which has a sedate leveling style and easygoing quest progression reminiscent of the Pandaren race it introduced.

The Burning Crusade and Cataclysm both involve tons of running, disjointed story lines and antiquated mechanics, so unless you're nostalgic for those zones' experience from your first time around, it's best to avoid them now.

Based on personal experience, it takes about twice the amount of time to level through The Burning Crusade compared to Warlords. Most expansions (except BC) will take you somewhere between 12 and 16 hours to complete if you're not speed-running; the fastest speedrunners currently take about 3.5-4 hours to get to level 50.

Dungeons or quests?

It's still viable to level exclusively through dungeons rather than questing. You'll get 2-3 levels per dungeon you run depending on quests. There are two two key caveats, however. First, if your character doesn't have a tank or healing specialization, you'll want to find someone who does to group with as the queues for damage players can be lengthy.

Second, you'll want to be careful of the expansion you select to level in, because unless queues are ridiculously long (prompting the game to offer you other dungeons as options), you're limited to your leveling expansion for the dungeons you choose from. This is important, because some dungeons offer quests inside for much better experience, and some do not.

If you're not party-syncing with other players (see below), you'll want to jump around the expansions that offer dungeon quests to maximize your experience. Avoid Warlords of Draenor, Legion and Battle for Azeroth, as they offer few or no quests in leveling dungeons.

Heirlooms and leveling speed items

Heirlooms were recently overhauled, no longer providing bonus experience while leveling. Instead, they offer other combat and quality of life bonuses. Because they level with you, it's a convenient way to avoid having to examine or replace gear.

Some leveling items still work in the expansion where they were originally collected, but they are typically only good for secondary (alt) characters. Draught of Ten Lands, for instance, works in Battle for Azeroth, but requires you to have a maximum-level main character to buy them.

Leveling with friends

One of the best ways to maximize your leveling speed is to group up with other people, using the game's Party Sync feature to synchronize quests and run dungeons. As long as you incorporate a new player periodically and sync with them, you'll all be able to repeat dungeons and re-do those quests for full experience. To use Party Sync, open your quest log and click the Party Sync button in the lower right corner.

Party Sync can be buggy, so be sure to un-sync before inviting a new character to the group, while also checking everyone is out of instances, vehicles, flight paths and other scenarios that make them busy before re-syncing. Nonetheless, if you're willing to put up with the quirks, Party Sync is a quick way to get the job done. It's also tons of fun since you're levelling with friends, and isn't that ultimately what an MMO like World of Warcraft is all about?
