The major upside of this method of leveling is speed.Jokerd will likely reach 60 before the end of the fourth day of the launch of Classic, which is amazingly fast. Based on what can be observed in the world and looking at the interest in our database pages, most players are currently in the level 20 range currently.
Another upside that goes unnoticed while watching his stream is the amount of gold that is made. At level 56, this was the current status of his bags:
At that point in time, he had made over , being on his character, plus another 100 that he spent buying his

The downsides to this strategy all circle around the lack of quest completions, like the reduced reputation standings, or having no progress on important questlines or attunements that players can work on while leveling to 60. By leveling mostly using AoE farming, all those grinds will need to be done after reaching level 60.
