Thread: boost or quest

    From what I remember, you only got full xp if you had 3+ low levelers grouped together when the pet assists. It didn't quite work as good if you had only 1 or 2 grouped.

    I did this about 2 years ago with a full 5 man leveling group and a 80 hunter on follow who would /petattack after the mob was tagged. It worked great!

    I did this, on the Rhinos in Borean Tundra.

    You needed two grouped characters, who were earning the experience.
    Basically tag with these, and then kill with your pet class.

    My pet class, was 3x Shaman.
    One was dual-spec, and I went Resto on her since dropped totems were essentially the same either spec.

    The process was:
    - Earth Shield the tagger (better AoE toon, of the 2 being boosted).
    - Other toon (grouped) auto follows this toon.
    - Three Shaman (not grouped with these two) also follow the AoE toon.
    - Run around doing Arcane Explosion, to gather 3-15 rhinos.
    - Drop the Stoneclaw Totem (on round-robin, with three shammies... only one of these down at once).
    - Drop 3x Magma (AoE damage) totems.
    - Repeat, once the mobs were dead.

    Looting was optional, it got me five bank tabs full of the Rhino meat.
    Which was put on the AH, in 40 stacks of five (back when that was a Dalaran cooking daily).
    I eventually quit looting, because it was taking forever... looted less than half my boosting time.

    The 66-73 process was an afternoon.
    That was before Guild Experience bonuses, and without any form of heirlooms, no RAF.

    boosting at low levels is fast and fun. im RAFless instance boosting a team i created last weekend. Read each quest pep speech, they are great for giving you purpose and motivation.
    Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it"

    I'm taking a group of 5x Holy (Shock'adin) Pallies to 85th, before MoP.
    They're 62nd now, and following the Zygor leveling guide.

    Unfortunately, that does give some collections.
    The really painful ones are skipped, which can mess the guide up a bit in that it expects you to be whatever level but you're under that.
    At least it doesn't say to take the next quest in whatever chain, if the earlier stuff was skipped.
    Most of the collections haven't been too bad, on an empty Hellfire.

    The Horde quests are similar, but a bit different from the Alliance quests.
    This is my first team to have quested in BC, as Horde.
    So the quest process is still new and somewhat interesting.
