I think that Shadowlands, with its focus on the Renown system and Covenants, really made me aware of reputation in World of Warcraft and how stifling it can be.
Now that World of Warcraft lets you choose between all of its previous expansions up to Battle for Azeroth to level from 10 to 50 in, I'm curious about which one you folks are choosing the most often.
So you're interested in playing Burning Crusade Classic, but you're a rebel, an iconoclast.
I find myself having a much harder time getting my alts to max level in Shadowlands than I did in Battle for Azeroth, but I know some people have multiple alts to 60 and in full Covenant gear, and I'm a trifle impressed.
In Shadowlands, each week we progress further with Renown, which has a weekly cap.
Which is the best way to level an alt in Shadowlands?
I am playing Shadowlands entirely wrong.
Your first character has entered the Shadowlands, completed the Campaign, chose their Covenant, and started progressing the Covenant Campaign.
Every expansion to World of Warcraft goes through a cycle, starting out fresh to the majority of players (those that weren't in the alpha or beta, anyway) and then, over time, as we all level through it there's a feeling of growing familiarity.
It's been a while since we had a linear leveling experience in World of Warcraft, where the game's story took you from Zone A to Zone B with no decision on your part. Warlords of Draenor had a single starting zone for each faction, but you could more or less decide which zone to go to next after that, while Legion and Battle for Azeroth both allowed you to pick and choose which zone you wanted to run.
