    Default Demon Hunters and Death Knights will Start at Level 1 in Shadowlands

    Blizzard has announced that, as part of the level squish, Demon Hunters and Death Knights will start at level 1 in Shadowlands, instead of level 98 and 55 respectively.

    Their original starting zone experiences will still be available as optional starting experiences.
    May be time to make one if needed

    It's an odd decision, for sure, as both classes are considered "Hero" classes, and they should really start at like level 20 or something like that to, somewhat, retain that status.

    As a side note, you can currently use Retail's Party Sync feature to drop either class down to the lower levels. It's useful if you've created a team that is currently "filling in the blank" with throwaway characters until it reaches that level range where the higher-level class would normally join up with the rest of the party.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    dont even have to level it, just create it and when shadowlands is patched in you'll be max level 50 like everyone else.

    I think they are going to do your level divided by 2.4 to get what your level will be in Shadowlands.
    So almost lvl 23 for the DK and almost lvl 41 for the DH.
    This info may be wrong but it was the consensus on guessing I've read so far.

    Did read the same - taken from wowhead

    Speculation: Right now, a level 120 to 50 conversion translates to 2.4 levels in BfA to 1 level in Shadowlands, so if it's a straight conversion, you'd divide your current level by 2.4. A level 70 character would translate to 29.17, which would probably mean level 29 plus a 17% toward 30. But again, we don't know the formula yet.

    I went ahead and leveled my Dh's 5x for Shadowlands and rest of Bfa. In order to counter squish, I decided I'll put in more time to Bfa.

    Given that the anniversary gives 15% xp and rep plus 10% more xp with bfa pots and heirlooms, I leveled from 98 to 120 just under 18 hours played (17 hours and 50 minutes or so). Usually, 45 mins per level. I do have flying and know the horde quests inside out so wasn't problem.

    Overall, I'd definitely suggest leveling right now so you can take advantage of those anniversary buffs. Especially, if you have Darkmoon Faire on December 1st or so when it comes, you'll just steamroll thru levels regardless of what class. Don't forget, if you're leveling a brand new class from lv1 the Draenor part also has 20% added xp, so that's 200% xp almost. Just total domination

    Just something to think about if you're planning to go retail/currently deciding to level up.

    Heirlooms give you 45% extra xp. Bfa pot gives you 10% extra xp. Anniversary buff gives you 15% xp and 15% reputation from all sources.
    When you reach Draenor and make your garrison you can trade the Draenor cache resource for extra 20% xp gain that works in Draenor so you can steam roll through Draenor Expansion.

    I'd recommend actually leveling in that zone, beacuse on launch, you will be able to choose your expansion. Meaning you will be able to level 1-50 ultra fast if they dont' remove that pot

    This combined with all the other stacking is what I was missing. Thank you for clarifying. Didn't really play much at all after MoP so this was totally lost on me.

    Remember you need a lv. 120 on that account to choose the expansion zones you wanna lv. in - else you are stuck to:


    • 1-10: Exile's Reach (new newbie zone for all players)
    • 10-50: Battle for Azeroth
    • 50-60: Shadowlands
