    Default 5-Box leveling speed

    Hello all. New member here - just taking my first dive in to multiboxing with WoW Classic. I mained a shaman back in retail classic, and know the class very well, so I decided to run 5 shamans. I'm not sure yet whether that was a smart move or not ;P. My goal is to farm instances such as Stratholme for Righteous Orbs, etc. I'm looking for some insight tonight about leveling speed. I'm 29.5 and just hitting 4 days 7 hours played. Not all of this time was solely dedicated to leveling, so that's not as important as this: it's taken me about 2.5 hours to get half way through 29. I'm grinding in SM GY right now and I don't have much difficulty with any of the mobs, except for the boss, of course, but I only tried him once. Seems painstakingly slow to me. Is this the pace I should be expecting? 5 hours to go from 29-30 seems atrocious, but if that's classic, I guess I'll just have to keep it up.

    TL;DR: It's taken me 2.5 hours to get half way in to 29. Am I doin it all wrong?

    Honestly seems about right (actually a little bit faster than I would of thought) unless you have the right synergy with your group. For instance my Druid tank, magex2, lock, shaman was taking about two hours a level at level 15... where as my 4hunters/1priest and my 4 warriors/shammy were eating levels in less than 30 mins well up into there 20’s. And as far as I know there’s one guy here with 4 mages/1 priest who was pretty much top 100 online in his server for speed and leveling so...

    Thank you for the reply. That comment about your 4 war 1 sham group hits me in the feelers, that was the other group comp I was considering. What level is your 4 war/1 sham group at the moment, and what's your /played if you don't mind sharing?

    Cheers!

    Keep in mind that different compositions peak at different times. Caster heavy groups kind of suck up to at least 20.

    They are level 28 currently, but I can’t honestly give a accurate /played on them because they were my first ever melee group and I say I took about 6 hours getting them to level 6 between constantly loosing them running off and toons not hitting anything. Or just spamming an ability they have no rage for and getting stuck in a macro. That and the fact that I have a newborn atm stealing most of my time so I have left them afk/dc multiple times and while frankly I’ve also face planted the keyboards and fallen asleep myself only to wake up an hour later to the “you have been disconnected” screen.

    Fair point. I'm hoping that these next few levels will be better than the previous ones. I'm getting Windfury at 30 and Chain Lightning at 32. Those are both class-defining spells for shamans, so I think it's possible that they will be a bit better with those abilities. Maybe that's their peak .

    Gotcha. Yeah, it's hard to give a good honest /played unless you are *just* leveling and camping out when you're afk, etc. I haven't fallen asleep on the keyboard since Everquest...haha. Good times. Thanks again for the info.

    5 Ele shamans are pretty good. I'm only at level 22 atm. (We can't level, like we used to, family, work, etc) I did clear RFC at 18, and WC at 22. If you want to enter any dungeon, make sure you higher few levels. I'm also working on second team 1 priest 4 warlocks, love that combo so far!...

    As far leveling in Classic, it takes time, for example : some people hit 60 all ready on single toon, as they played pretty much non stop and slept only 4 hours a day. I'm thinking a 5 man team would take few weeks. The more chars you box the more time it takes as you have to collect quest items on each toon, not so many Slain quests out there. It's a bit of a grind. level 30? that's pretty damn good!

    Your pace sounds right for a shaman group. My 3x war 1x pally 1x priest has consistently average 2hrs/level from level 23-43.

    Right on, thank you for the response. Hit 30 last night and got windfury, then hit 31 and 32. Put in a good session. Windfury definitely seems to help, as does the Corpsemaker axe that I have farmed 3 of so far in RFK. Headed there to hopefully fill out the rest of the team with Corpsemakers.

    I hit my stride in SM:GY last night and was doing about 2.5 hours for a level if I focused 100% and really made the most of it. So I guess I'm not that far behind xp/hour wise, but seeing the AoE happening is still making me want to try it . Thank you.

    4x Warriors alliance side, until level 36, are pretty miserably slow. I hit my stride around 40, and things got really nice and quick after.
