As SoD Phase 2 approaches, Blizzard has announced that Waylaid Supplies won’t give you Exp after level 25.
In Phase 2, the level cap is raised to 40. And so, the WoW community has found various ways to speed up their journey to the new cap. One popular strategy involves accumulating Exp through turning in Waylaid Supplies. These crates, acquired by defeating mobs across Azeroth, held the promise of substantial Exp gains upon redemption. However, Blizzard’s latest announcement has dealt a significant blow to many players’ plans.
Phase 1’s Level Band Waylaid Supplies Won’t Give You Exp
Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield took to Twitter to announce that Waylaid Supplies obtained from Phase 1’s level band will not grant Exp rewards beyond level 25. Consequently, these collected crates won’t contribute any Exp to players’ progression to 40:
However, fans need not fret. Greenfield also mentioned that with the arrival of Phase 2, Waylaid Supplies obtained from higher-level mobs, chests, and other sources, would still grant gamers experience points. So, while Phase 1’s supplies won’t serve any purpose for reaching the new cap, farming and returning Phase 2’s supplies will remain an effective method for leveling up.
