If you're looking for the fastest way to level your Hunter from 1 - 80 in WotLK Classic, look no further! In this guide, we will walk you through each step of the leveling process.


By following our guide, you'll be able to power through levels at lightning speed! Let's get started!


WLK Hunter-1


Choose the Right Race

The first thing you need to do is choose the right race for your Hunter. If you're looking for raw power and damage output, then go with an Orc or a Tauren.


If you're looking for a more nimble and agile Hunter, then go with a Night Elf or a Troll. Once you've chosen your race, it's time to move on to the next step!


Choose the Right Specialization

If you're planning on doing primarily PvE content, then we recommend going with either Marksmanship or Survival. If you're planning on mainly doing PvP content, we recommend going with Beast Mastery. Regardless of which specialization you choose, make sure to pick the right talents to complement your playstyle.


Start in your home city, where you can access all of the necessary quests and trainers. From there, make your way through each zone in order, completing all of the quests and dungeons you come across.


Get the Right Gear

One of the most important things you can do when leveling your Hunter is to ensure you have the right gear. You should aim to get gear with high Agility, Stamina, and Critical Strike ratings. This will help you deal more damage, survive more hits, and crit more often. You can get gear from quests, dungeons, and raids.


Use Your Traps

Traps are one of the most powerful tools in Hunter's arsenal. They can be used to control enemies, slow them down, and deal damage over time. Be sure to use your traps wisely and place them in strategic locations.


Know Your Shots

As a Hunter, you have a variety of different shots that you can use to deal damage to your enemies. Each shot has its own purpose and should be used accordingly. For example, Serpent Sting is an excellent shot for dealing damage over time, while Multi-Shot is perfect for taking down multiple enemies at once.


Use Your Pet Wisely

Your pet is a valuable asset that can help you in combat. Be sure to choose a pet that suits your playstyle and use it wisely in combat. For example, if you're going up against a single target, you may want to use your pet to the tank so that you can deal more damage.


Learn the Enemy's Weaknesses

Every enemy has specific weaknesses that can be exploited by Hunters. For example, many humanoid enemies are susceptible to mind-control techniques such as Hibernate and Intimidation. Use these weaknesses to your advantage and take down your enemies quickly and efficiently.

Don't Be Afraid to Use Consumables

Consumables such as food and potions can be extremely helpful when leveling your Hunter. They can help you restore health and mana, increase your stats, or even give you temporary buffs. Be sure to stock up on consumables. Before heading into combat, you're always prepared.


Join a Guild or Group

One of the best ways to level quickly is to join a guild or group. These groups can provide you with support, advice, and camaraderie as you level up your Hunter. Additionally, many guilds and groups offer perks such as discounts on gear or training programs that can help you level up even faster.


Train Your Skills Regularly

It's important to train your skills regularly so that you're constantly improving as a Hunter. You can do this by practicing in PvE or PvP situations, reading books or hunting guides, or participating in training programs offered by guilds or groups. The more you train, the better equipped you'll be to take on anything Wrath of the Lich King throws at you.


Stay Focused

When leveling your Hunter, staying focused on your goals is important. Don't get sidetracked by other activities such as questing or exploring new areas - the faster you level up, the sooner you'll be able to take on Wrath of the Lich King's toughest challenges.


Get Heirlooms

Heirlooms are a great way to boost your leveling speed. Heirlooms are items that scale with your character, meaning that they will get stronger as you level up. You can get heirlooms from a variety of sources, including the Auction House, friends, or in-game events.


Use Rested Experience

Rested experience is a bonus that you receive when you log out of the game in an inn or city. This bonus allows you to level faster as you gain more experience for each monster you kill. Make sure to take advantage of this bonus by logging out in an inn or city whenever possible.


Join a Dungeon Finder Group

Dungeon finder groups are a great way to level up quickly as they allow you to complete dungeons much faster than soloing them. You can join dungeon finder groups through the group finder tool in the game interface.


Do Daily Quests

Daily quests are a great source of experience and can often be completed quickly. You can access your daily quests through the quest tracker in the game interface. Make sure to do your daily quests to maximize your experience gain.


Kill Rare Mobs

Rare mobs are special monsters that award bonus experience when killed. These mobs are often more complicated to kill than regular monsters, but the extra experience is worth it. You can use the rare mob tracker in the game interface to help you find rare mobs.


Use Flying Mounts

Flying mounts will allow you to travel around the world faster, making it easier to get to quest objectives and monster spawns. You can unlock flying mounts by completing specific achievements or purchasing them from the Auction House.



Want to level up fast? The way to go about that is with enough gold to speed your way to the max level. 


Use Quest Helper Add-ons

Quest helper add-ons are programs that track your progress through quests and provide guidance on how to complete them efficiently. These add-ons can be beneficial for figuring out what order to complete quests and where to go next. There are many different quest helper add-ons available, so make sure to try out a few and see which one works best for you.


Get Profession Bonuses

Some professions offer bonuses that can help you level up faster. For example, tailors can create special bags that increase the amount of experience gained from kills, while engineers can create gadgets that boost the experience gained from killing monsters and completing quests. Make sure to choose a profession that offers bonuses to help you level up faster.


Preparing For Hunter's Endgame


WLK Hunter-3


Get Your Gear in Order

One of the most important things you can do when preparing for the endgame is to ensure your gear is in order. You should aim to have the best gear possible, as this will make it easier to take down the Lich King and his minions. You can get gear by running dungeons, completing quests, and participating in PvP combat.


Get Your Friends Involved

Endgame content is typically much more difficult than other content in Wrath of the Lich King, so getting your friends involved is important. You should form a group with other players who are also interested in taking down more challenging content in WotLK Classic. Having a good support network will make it easier to overcome any challenges you may face during the fight.


Practice, Practice, Practice

Once you've sorted your gear and friends, it's time to start practicing. You should run through practice fights with your group so everyone knows the mechanics of every dungeon and raid in WotLK. This will help ensure you're as prepared as possible when it comes time to play Hunter in the endgame of WotLK.


Be Patient

Finally, it's important to remember that tackling content in Wrath of the Lich King will not be easy. It may take multiple attempts before you finally succeed. Don't get discouraged if you don't defeat him on your first try - keep practicing and working on your strategy, and eventually, you'll be able to take him down.
