    I agree but it is difficult to help them level when we are so much higher. Most xp does come from quests (perhaps) but a big majority comes from what is killed as well. When they are grouped with us anything we kill they dont get xp for. How were you thinking of accomplishing this? I usually just help when they specify they are having problems completing a quest or instance. Not killing your idea I am just not sure how to go about doing this so it helps and doesnt hurt.

    Yes, the XP is reduced from kills when you are grouped with a high level character. But the net effect is minimal unless you are killing tons of mobs for a quest.

    For example, the other day I helped Redhunt with like 5 quests in Tanaris... kill a guy and get his head, kill another guy and get his head as well, fetch a box from a building, escort a robot chicken, kill cactus guys and get one drop from them. None of these involved a lot of killing except for the cacti where we killed like 10 of them.

    Of course there are some quests where you have to kill a ton of guys... eh, can't win em all.

    You know how to level a low level priest fast? Don't group with them. Have them go attack something that's a few levels higher and then you do the killing. Since they got the initial hit, they would get the xp and it won't be shared. Just have them run around, spam some dmg spell on a few mobs and then you run in and finish off with AE or any AoE. Also don't group for quest. Just see what type of quest and use same strategy as above.

    Low level: Initial hit to tap => High level: finish with 1-2 spells/hits

    Charly and I tested that. You are correct that not grouping with the high level that is helping you results in better XP, but it is still reduced... I don't remember by how much, charly?

    I haven't tested it but it is still faster than solo'ing or grouping since it saves so much time. They run in, hit the mob once to tap it, then just look for another. By the time they hit the next mob, the first is already dead and help is on the way. Then just repeat. Loots aren't too important here since low level mobs don't drop anything good anyways.

    Unless, of course, you happen to be a low level no0b with no cool gear. ;)

    Any requests for tonight? I figured we could help some of the lower level players do an instance or two. After that if nobody minds I would like to get into strat to try and pick up some beaststalker armor. I am not going to see Sin City until tomorrow night so tonight is free.

    There were no requests for tonight. I will just be helping people with whatever quests or instances they need.

    If you want to do Strath, keep an eye out for Achillees in IF. He organizes tons of good Strath groups.
