Are you sick of the lower-level enemy grind in World of Warcraft

Here’s what level you need to access for each dungeon so you can speed up the ranking process. This list shows the recommended level for each area and even the lowest level you can attempt these challenges, if you want to get through almost unscathed.

Dungeons spice up the game, providing a change in scenery for players who don’t feel like trekking through the grind to level 60. 

Get some friends or find some allies to come assist you in your journey through these WoW dungeons and gather some loot along the way.
