Common Problems

  • Completeting quests is not giving me experience
  • Can't level my character, the experience bar is stuck
  • Not earning experience when doing quests

You will not earn experience if:

  • Your character is level 10 and your World of Warcraft account has no game time. Add game time to continue leveling past 10.
  • Your character is level 45 and you don't have the Shadowlands expansion. Buy Shadowlands to continue leveling past 45.
  • You disabled experience gains. To reactivate experience gains talk to Behsten in Stormwind or to Slahtz in Orgrimmar.
  • You are completing trivial quests or clearing trivial dungeons. You will only receive experience from content of a difficulty appropriate to your character's level.
