Leveled a new (main) goblin shaman first solo through all the cata quests. As I can no longer be arsed to do the same old quests again and again while boxing, - not to mention that i never read a quest or pay enough attention to the storyline to enjoy it - I was either going to level my 5x ele team through pvp or by aoe. While on my solo toon, I was always on the lookout for a good AOE spot.
In hiyal there is a decent one for the first level, it's one of the first quests you do and npc's keep respawning. 81-82 I've been questing for some gear, with queuing up for AV meanwhile.
82 and then up to deepholm ...
82 -> 83 in 70 minutes, rested
83-84 in a bit less than 3 hours, partially rested, partially not.
Might be that questing is faster, but after 2 collection quests I basically leave my comp alone and go do something else.
The spot I used in deepholm is just plain awesome. Mobs keep respawning and respawning, and there are about 150 to start with. Depending on the team one can do large pulls, I basically kept standing in the same spot, though with a tank and dks for example i'd be way way faster. The loot is pretty awesome as well, though I only did that while gaining mana or so. Only downside is that you don't get gearupgrades from quests, but I'll be pvp'ing only so I'm gonna craft the starting res gear.
The mobs are all the same, though every so often one of them turn into a bigger one and they hit pretty hard. Make sure to kill those first. Rested i got 2100 xp per kill being 82, at lvl 83 I got 2500. At level 84 i'm getting 2700. Though I moved on to TH to do some quests and get some gear upgrades there.
When you are done killing 1 pack, next pack most likely just respawned.
Anyway the spot I'm talking about is located here:
Packs can be anywhere from 4-10 mobs. The spot is actually way bigger than this screenie. And the good thing is that these mobs can be rooted with earthbind totem + thunderstorm will knock them off the platform whenever you are in trouble.
You wanna land pretty much where my recount is in the last screenshot, as it's one of the very few places that you won't aggro packs.
Enough loot ...
Felt like sharing as some fellow boxers might be tired from questing as well when leveling up another team.
