I don’t think I have been really utilising my rested XP in the cleverest manner. I have gone out and leveled in my normal way (quests and PQs) during our christmas bonus period. What I should have been doing and what I have been done tonight, is to find a mob type which is susceptible to my magic type, ideally about 1 to 2 levels above my current level and kick the crap out of them.
This evening I just stumbled across a camp where all the mobs were just right. So instead of doing quests where I would be killing mobs with an XP range of 500 to 1000, I was chain killing mobs in the 1600 range. I will be honest, it was glorious. 4 – 5 mobs a minute @ 1600 = 6400 to 8000 a minute, so as long as I could fight off my low boredom threshold, I was on a winner. Unfortunately the wife summoned me, so it was exit stage left. But I’ll be back.
It does bring home an important lesson. Everytime you start leveling your first character in an MMORPG, it’s a learning experience. Not just of the experience you gain for the actual character, but the experience you gain about how best to level your future characters within that MMORPG. Lets hope that I get ontop of my game soon.
