Are You Considering Using a WoW Leveling Service?
If you are considering paying for a WoW
leveling service, then you need to read this article first.
World of Warcraft
(WoW) is a hugely popular MMO RPG and has in excess of 11 million players. The
game's developers expressly forbid the use of power leveling services and yet many
players still indulge in this. Using a power leveling service can result in a
permanent ban and account deletion, but many players do not consider the fact
that this is often not the only penalty. There really is no good reason to risk
a ban and possible fraudulent use of your credit card details when there are
many Warcraft power leveling guides available that will get you where you want
to go just as fast and with no risk to your game account or bank balance.
Leveling From a Website
The safest and cheapest option for players wanting to level fast is to use one of the many online guides for Alliance and Horde leveling. Using a guide on a website is of course free and is 100% within the guidelines that Blizzard have issued to guide players behavior. The downside to using a website guide is that it can be slow due to the fact that you will continually have to alt-tab between playing the game and reading the information on the website. A far better solution is to use a guide that allows you to read the information from within the games interface directly.
Using an In-Game Guide
There are a number of in game guides available for Warcraft and they are 100% legal to use. Some of these guides will also provide an in game GPS type system that will point you to where you need to go in order to complete the next stage of the quest. This speeds up the leveling process enormously and is incredibly useful. Of course, like most things in life, you get what you pay for. There are a number of free in game guides and some of them are good (eg TourGuide), but many are rubbish.
The paid guides are all top quality products, at least in my experience. One of the best of the paid guides that I have run into is the guide from Zygor. Using a guide like this it is entirely possible to reach maximum level from level 1 in less than a fortnight.
Avoiding Credit Card Fraud
The worst thing about paying for WoW leveling is that you expose yourself to the risk of fraud and the chance of getting your game account banned. While many players may be unconcerned about the chance of in game ban, the consequences for being on the receiving end of credit card fraud can be far more severe. In many cases the people that you are paying your money to in order to have your account leveled are well aware that both you and they are breaking the Blizzard terms of service agreement and they are relying on your reluctance to report them if they indulge in any malpractice. It is perhaps no coincidence that some months after a character has been powerleveled many times that same account is "hacked" and all gold and possessions on the character are lost. Wouldn't it be more sensible just to level the character yourself and have the sense of achievement that it brings?
This brings us to the end of this article which asked the question why pay for wow leveling? I hope that you now have a good understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of using website pages, or in game guides to level. Perhaps you will now also see the risks involved in giving your credit card details to unknown people in a foreign country, if you choose to pay for wow leveling services. I hope you enjoy playing your character and leveling up the safe way. Maybe we will meet in a raid some time.
