Jame's Alliance Leveling Guide

Jame's picture

Now also available as an in-game leveling addon. Please check out the following page to try the WoW-Pro Leveling Addon!

If you need guides for any other level range please check out this page.

If you don't want to try our WoW Leveling Addon, here's how to enjoy the paper guides as much as possible, even if you don't have a 2nd monitor, you can either:

1. Print the guides. There is a "Printer Friendly Version" link at the bottom of every guide, you just have to click on it. However, that might be expansive (and probably expensive), because the guides are big, very big. Another downside is that my guides are updated very frequently, so if you print it you'll miss the latest updates.

2. Playing WOW in Windowed Mode feels very comfortable while following along with this guide.

  • Keep the guide opened in an internet window
  • Log in to World of Warcraft, press Escape and go to Video Options, tick the following boxes:

Click on "Apply".

Your screen will look exactly as if you were playing wow in full screen mode, besides you will be able to ALT-TAB to the guide INSTANTLY.

This is how I play wow while following my guide, when I don't feel like booting up my 2nd computer Smiling


I think

I guess I should clarify exactly what I meant when I said it wouldn't be much fun in WOW if everyone had the same gear. Anyone who has played guild wars PVP can tell you that what set that game apart from world of warcraft is all the different skill combinations that were available. If you chose to be warrior with mage killing abilities-lots of interupts- then your ability to kill another warrior wasn't as good as the warrior with armor penetrating skills. With world of warcraft, each build while different based on talents, is still just about the same until you add gear into the equation. I agree with sane mike that it would take an immense amount of strategy to be able to beat a team of 10 other players that were nearly identical to your team, but I think it would come down to who can mash the buttons faster because a rogue would be fighting another rogue the same way. Where is the fun in that? Part of what makes guild wars PVP so great is that with 100's of skill combinations your chances of fighting the same class build twice is slim to none and that for me adds an element of surprise; thus keeps the game fresh.

Yes, they will be linked to Boston's guide (20-30), especially after we revamp them Smiling

Great Guide

First of all, I want to thank James for the great leveling guide. Excellent, excellent work. We (warrior and priest) followed the guides since lvl 30.

I do want to make a suggestion: right about lvl 68, you could mention in the guide that going to instances (Auchindoun) will fill about 1/4 of the xp bar each run. So about 8-10 runs will for sure get to lvl 70.

This way you not only saving all the quests later for gold (you will need a lot of gold for flying mounts, etc) but also having a chance to upgrade your gears.

Of course, if you like to solo questing, by all means follow the guide (I did mention how great the guide was above).

What I'm suggesting is just an option. Each instance in Auchindoun has only 2-3 bosses and takes about 2-3 hours to finish and it fills about 5 bubbles of xp (20 bubbles total on the xp bar).

My gf and I both ding 70 in instances. Spend all our gold on the flying mount. Then we went back to the guide for the quests at Blade's Edge Mountains. In about 5 hours following the guide we each made about 600 gold.

So now in additional to following Jame's guide, we also doing daily quests.

Need help

I started the guide at lvl 36 and did all of the Desplace quests. I finished in the Badlands and am now level 41. However, next on the list is STV. I have not done any of the quests in STV that was listed for levels 30-35. What should i do?

Well, doing the quest in

Well, doing the quest in levels 30-35 will give you little experience so in my opinion just skip those quest. Follow Jame's guide for the quests you can do and make up the experience by grinding and instance runs. Once you get to a new location, you should be able to follow Jame's guide again.

I think at your level, you should focus on leveling up fast and go battle grounds to build up your honor points. Once you reach 70, you could use your honor points and battle ground token to buy epic weapon. Check wowarmory for the arena season 1 reward.

Hope that helps.


All of these guides are amazing. I had a serious case of alt-itis - 4 characters in the high 20s/30s but no 70. I kept getting stuck in my level progression, and then I would get bored, and then I would make a new character. In any case I found this guide and it was GREAT. I was able to finally level up quickly and as a result reached 70 for the first time two days ago.


Jame's picture

Always happy to hear that I

Always happy to hear that I cure people from Alt-itis!

Well Done!

I just had to register just to say how impressed I am with your guide.

It must have taken a long time to organize.

I had hit a wall at 40 and had taken a long break from the game. When I returned, I had no idea what was going on as far as my quest went. I found your guide and now after just a few weeks of casual playing, I am just about to hit 60!

Bravo Sir!

Thank you, glad to hear!

Thank you, glad to hear!

hey man sweet guide, love your work. just wondering if you could put some tips up about starting guildes and orginizing raids. But top job mate Laughing out loud

I'll think about it

I'll think about it Smiling

lvl 10-20 guide

You should try to make a lvl 10-20 guide so i can start a new toon and try all of the other chapters cuz i heard of this when i was already lvl 54. You are awesome!

Chapter I

I'm having some trouble accessing Chapter I, it is giving me some sort of DNS error asking me to log in with what I assume is your host. Kind of a let down right now

But other than that, this is an amazing guide so far. playing a non-twink char I have gotten 30-34 in about 7 game hours and made everything very organized and straightforward. I am looking forward to using this guide to make my way to 70 for the first time and when I do I'll be sure to check back and leave another comment letting you know how well this guide worked for me then as well

Unable to Access the Chapter V

I'll click on the link to the 65-70 chapter, and it will just take me to my ISP's search engine. Any Ideas?

Jame's picture

Just tried it, no problem

Just tried it, no problem for me. No idea what could cause this for you Sad

Awsome guide James I used about twice (horde and alliance) and was able to get to charecters to 70 1 alliance and 1 horde in about three months cause I had school, and alot of exams and not that much time to play.

One thing I recomend for anyone who didnt have enough money to buy thier mount / train spells is to download the auctioneer addon (google it) it has helped me sooo much! I was able to get both mounts at 40 and at 60 thanks to this addon.

Thanks alot James for the guide =D

3 Cheers for James!


Very well done James. Glad to have found your guides. Your a gem man.


i have to say absolutely amazing guide!
i love it so much. its really easy to follow and its the greatest one out.
thanks again Smiling

I Need Some Help!

I'm a new member and already these guide looks great. I can't wait to use it. The only problem I have is that I discovered this guide at level 44. When I look at the guide it says to do all these quests that I should have got a level 40. Now I don't know where to start. I need some help.

(funnyflapjak - Night Elf Hunter - Duskwood)

Jame's picture

Not a problem. Just follow

Not a problem. Just follow the guide from level 41 and ignore the quests you can't get. In a couple of levels you should be back on track.

wow guide

Thanks for the guide it really made the leveling up fly by. Keep up the good work Smiling

Thanks alot !

Well i finally think its time for me to give you some credit for your work aswell Smiling So far i have lvled 2 chars from 30-60 and one from 30-68 so far using your guides. A friend of mine found it by covincident and showed it to me, and I have been totally addicted to it ever since Smiling

The best thing is that you can jump abit back and forth in it, and since i like to do alot of my lvling in instances that is essential for me, the discriptions are allways accurate and easy to understand!

Once again thanks alot for the big effort and keep it up Smiling

Great guide

I started this guide at level 31 and now I'm 67 .I can say it really went fast , although I didn't play so many hours a day . I think it would be great if u would make another guide , so u can get us well geared for level 70. I know it's not easy to write a guide , but u did the impossible on your perfect guides . So I hope you'll think about it ..

This guide is THE BEST guide i know of. I'm currently using it for my 3rd and 4th chars, my first 2 got 1-70 in 12 and 10 gmae days respectively. Curently at lvl 35 in just over 2 game days.

Amazing Gude

I just wanted to praise this guide for being absolutly amazing. Yeah, there might be some things here or there that could be tweeked but nothing is perfect and this guide so far ( lvl 49 at the time of this post ) is fantastic. I have been about 2 lvls or so ahead of the guide as I started it at about lvl 35 at the begining but it works great for a casual gamer like me. I don't follow the guide exclusively and I embark on some follow ups not mentioned, or quests not mentioned and I have no problems what-so-ever following the guide. I just wanted to say thank you and keep up the amazing work.

Best Guide on the Internet!

Wanted to let you know this is by far the best guide on the internet Smiling ty


I also wanted to add a word of thanks to you and your team for these guides. I am a family man, so I don't have a ton of time to grind out levels. These make it great for the 20 minutes here and there that I am able to log on and get something accomplished! I have gotten to level 54 in no time.

estimation on time

I was just wondering how long it would take me to get to lvl40 from 30- I play about 4 hours a day.

Jame's picture

If you follow my guide and

If you follow my guide and play 4 hours a day, you should do level 30 to 40 in about 4 days.

A thank you. :)

I just wanted to thant you for the great guide, as I am new to WoW I spent levels 1-25 being utterly confused by everything.

Since I found your guide, it has taught me much about the game, and even more so in the ways of avoiding things that are huge wastes of my time. Like spending hours wandering around looking for the next bunch of quests to take me further along. This is a good guide in respect with things to see and quests to do. It also worked on my need to explore the world and accomplish things at the same time. It has taken me through to level 56 in a short amount of time, and for that I owe you my thanks.

I don't need to ask people silly questions and annoy them and as I see things, this guide has given me legs to walk on in the game and has taught me the basics I need to know when progressing through things not in the guide. Smiling Thank you, much appreciated. <3

I just love your guides I

I just love your guides I have used them since level 30 for my hunter (BM speced.) I am now level 60 and flew to 60 at an alarming rate. I am new to the game so it probably wasn't common to see someone go from 30 to 60 in a week. I have been accused of power leveling and even some guildies were convinced that I had hired a person to level my account lol. I have enjoyed the content of the game with this guide immensly.

The only problem was even without grinding I was so far ahead of my level for the quest lines I was doing they were green and some were even grey. I had to skip ahead and then started falling in the it is chain so I was missing a lot of content of the game.

The XP rate should be the same between 60 and 70 as it was befopre 2.3 so I shouldn't have any issues following your guide then. I have followed it from 30 to 60 since 2.3 and I highly suggest to those following the guide now since 2.3 increased amount ot level and XP required to level lessened to exclude any grinding suggested it simply isn't needed and will only make you get less XP if you enjoy the quest lines and want to do them.

Good Tip

Hi thanks for the guide it really a helped.
But for the quest in the shimmering flats where you have to kill those birds and get there hollow bones i found it fairly hard to find them ex specially when there were lots of people there but if you would like i happened to find a realy nice place that has at least 10 of these birds hanging around.

87.66 Smiling lots of 'em. hope this helps.


Follow ups

I think that you should put purple text for quests that have follow ups, because since patch 2.3 i have been way ahead of the guide but am very afraid of missing some important follow ups. Perhaps you can put really important follow ups in another color or bold them.

The other option is re do the guilds for 2.3 but i understand how much work that would be, and if you dont want to i would undstand (PLEASE DO! Laughing out loud )

I really do love your guides, had alot of problems before them but now wow is more fun and exciting than ever! well thats just my 2 cents. Smiling

We are gonna revamp them

We are gonna revamp them Smiling It's already planned, you can see the release dates on the news page.

Great guide!

I started at 31 last week, and I'm 48 now. This really works! Thanks!

Thank you!

Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for the virtual blood, sweat, and tears you put into making this guide. I picked it up around level 40, when as a new player to WoW, had trouble figuring out which area to go to next to continue leveling. The efficiency of this guide is what makes it great. The only hard part is resisting the urge to go turn in the 10 (Complete) quests I have and not following the guide lol. Thank you again for improving my WoW playing experience and enabling me to catch up with some friends I knew from high school that all have multiple level 70 chars. Smiling

Great Guide mate

Sticking out tongue this guide is really good helped me alot. from 40's to 60's i found money making easy i just went minning and skinning and sold pretty much everything on the ah. very well written. although i have one suggestion. with doing mara i honestly think you dont have to do this with the current patch i was pretty much 2 lvl ahead of the guide so i stopped "killing everything on the way" and i was still ahead after skipping mara. just a suggestion anywho. loving it with the 60's lvling me rather fast ty. Sticking out tongue

Alliance 21-31

Hi just wondering if you could could give a rough estimate on how long it will be before there is an Alliance 21-31 as i find these levels hopelessly boring and slow Smiling

Love the Guides

Thank you so much!! But just like a wonderful drug i cant live out with your guides.. i find myself with withdrawl symptoms Smiling I cant lvl without them.

If you are debating whether or not to make a horde 60-70 PLEASE make a horde side 60-70 So i can continue to play..

Thank you so much for all youve done so far.

Yes of course it is possible. You should start at level 40 or so in the guide to grab some of the quests which have follow ups.
