    Default Boosting An Alt In Classic

    Hello

    I'm levelling a solo mage for now, and been thinking about alts. I know it is a little early, but I was wondering, if (and when) I get to 60 with my mage, if boosting an alt by dual boxing would be worth it rather than solo leveling the alt? If so, what would be the quickest way for a level 60 to boost the alt? Do you run instances of a with them, or speed through quests?

    Or would it actually be better just to reroll two alts?

    Thanks.

    I did notice that blizz cheated a little and nerfed XP when mob-tagging out in the world. In vanilla, as long as the low level hit something first, if someone else's pet killed it then it would still give the low level full XP. They nerfed this in (insert whichever boring expansion here) so I think the only ways to powerlevel an alt now are:

    1) be a healer, especially a druid with thorns, and just heal them from out of group
    2) run them through instances, but who knows if that's been secretly nerfed too

    I suspect many of us are interested in this topic and will switch focus on to alts once our main teams are capped.

    I believe several of us will be leveling lots of alts to 35+ for passive professions (and include at least some Warlocks for strategic summon locations).

    The "best approach" answer for me will be what method gives the most level 35+ alts with the fewest average hours of effort per alt (with some consideration given to how much effort each hour is for a given method).

    At this point the best approach I can think of so far is 4 Warlocks & a Priest healer as it seems low risk & low effort with easy/fast leveling. Basically just send pets to attack then dot and wand but certainly interested in other options (especially if it ends up with more alts at 35+ level with fewer hours of effort).

    Assuming 5 or less accounts, if your goal is mass production of level 35+ alts, one consideration that needs to be given to using a level 60 main is that you only get 4 level 35+ alts when they hit 35 instead of 5 alts... To put that in perspective, if your goal was 20 level 35 alts you would only need to do 4 teams of 5 to 35 but leveraging a main would have to do 5 teams of 4 alts to get 20 so it would need to be well more than 20%+ faster to be more efficient (given that goal & those assumptions).

    The other factor is that maybe only certain mains are viable for boosting lower level alts. I think Mages are a given but maybe also Paladins and/or Warriors can be decent but not really sure at this point for which classes are at least decent for boosting alts to level 35.

    While not 60 yet, I power leveled my rogue with my three level 20 wand casters. They way I did it was (with my rogue out of group) drive with my rogue, tag the mob with an arrow shot, then I opened up with wands on my three mages to drop the mob.

    Not sure why the pet method above didn't work but this method works like a charm and I never saw a drop in solo XP.

    I have been doing much the same to boost. Tag the mob by the character being boosted then wand them down with mages. Works well as long as your boosted character can actually hit the mob. I have a lot of misses.

    How are standing on this subject?

    Are the xp nerfs that hard, or is a single lvl60 mage boosting alts a good strategy?

    I know the issue with the character slot of the lvl 60 Denies other alts on that account. But one can correct that if the strategy it to lvl up multiple teams.

    the basic point is what is faster? Grind the 5-man team to 60, or single lvl a booster (mage for exempel) boost the team and then correct the remaining slot taken by the booster, or perhaps the mage is part of the team.

    it will always be faster to solo level than dual box, unless you go warrior with a healer outside your group.
    my suggestion is twink the hell out of your second account go go ham as hard and fast as you can.

    The question here is more like: you have 5 accounts.

    what is faster, level the team as a whole? Or level one to 60 and carry the team?

    I am considering dropping two of my warriors and just leveling my war, priest and paladin together doing quests and coming back fro the other two, while at times it feels okay doing stuff, i feel like im going backwards most of the time.
