Dota 2 Leveling - How to gain levels faster? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


The leveling process in Dota 2 can be a bit intimidating, especially for new players. It might seem like a pretty straightforward process, but sometimes, it can be pretty difficult just to absorb the experience. That's why we decided to write this guide and show every one player's different ways in which they can accumulate experience.

Keep it in mind that all points mentioned here could change in the future when there is a significant update. Now that we cleared this out let's dive in.

Leveling on your lane

This is the most common way in which most players prefer to progress through the game. Needless to say, this is also the fastest way possible to get to level 30, unless the enemy team continually ganks you. If that's the case, you might have to think of a different source of experience. Even though Dota 2 is a very complex game, when it comes down to experience gaining, there aren't that many choices.

Jungling/Creep Stacking

Apart from your lane, the only other place where you can get experience in the Jungle. Every single camp there provides a different amount of experience, depending on the creeps. While it is true that it's not as fast, sometimes it is more advisable to stay there instead of just dying on your lane. 

That said, there is a way in which you can increase the amount of experience you get from the jungle, especially early on. To do this, you need to do a unique Dota 2 technique called "stacking." As the name suggests, this method stacks creeps inside one spawning point. Even though it might seem pointless, it is an excellent thing to do, especially when the camp is too strong for you to take down alone.

To stack a camp, you need to attack it at a specific timeframe and run away. Usually, that's around the 53rd or the 55th second. Once you do a couple of stacks at each camp, you and your team can go and take it down together. Usually, this happens with either the mid laner or the carry because they can also benefit from that extra gold. 

Other methods

The only other way to get experience in Dota 2 is if you buy a special item called Thome of Experience. However, you can only purchase it once every ten minutes, so keep that in mind.
