wouldn't questing be faster than grinding anyway? I mean even if you have a fleet of players out of party finishing your mobs for you, you don't get full kill exp anyway on top of grinding being a slower process of leveling. Plus it's hard to find areas with enough mobs on a short enough respawn time to make it more exp per hour than questing anyway
Anyone know how this works because now I'm curious
Smasher is just questing. nobody even with him. He even is making mistakes. He killed some yellow mobs that he was supposed to be talking to for a quest. Nothing cheating or even remotely 'strange' about the way he is leveling.. He is just questing and being very fast about it.
Then I'm going to root for Smasher. Would be nice to see someone get world first by playing through the content the way it was intended, instead of the tagging method.
Yeah, I don't get the whole Athene thing either. Basically he made himself famous, and every since then he has just found morons to follow him around and kill stuff for him. Congrats on finding 5 idiots in WOW.
Just some things to think about with all the comparing.
athenes gear is horrible - smashers gear to start with was very nice.
Athene is playing with friends, its an MMO after all right? The majority of the game is based around guilds, large groups of people playing together. So why is it horrible to be working together ?
Your gear is completely irrelevant when you are ungrouped, running around judging 30+ mobs and having a swarm of people kill these mobs that you never did anything to other than a singular attack. This way your exp gain doesn't get docked for being in a group.
