TBC Classic Dungeon Leveling Guide

The goal of this guide is to provide an alternative to leveling via quests. As everyone is funneled into Hellfire Peninsula on launch day, you might want to find ways to avoid competing for mob tags, waiting for respawns, and dealing with World server crashes. To do so, we focus on leveling via dungeons. By the time you reach max level, you will have ammassed a substantial amount of reputation with the various factions, unlocked a few heroic keys, and collected some Pre-Raid BiS gear. This guide is based on the leveling video by BiosparksTV. Check out his updated video here.
