    Default AA route vs leveling questions

    Hi



    I just picked up PoP a week ago, no flags, and I'm a bit torn on how to advance. I hear lots of good things about PoP AAxp, but the best I've done is one AA in about 5 hours or so in PoI.



    So, I have the following questions:



    1) Given the blue->light blue transition at 61+, and my guild's current raid status (killing Vindi, Gore, etc occasionally) should I stay 60?

    2) Which areas in lower-end PoP zones give the aforementioned uber xp?

    3) Given my gear (2450 or so hp, 1100ac, TS wielding, for details see sig), will I be a liability in the great-xp PoP spots?

    4) I was planning on maxing defensive archetype AA's before I move on, is the % increase from, say, CA added to the current miss rate, or is it applied?



    On a random note, the relative ease with which casters increase their power in PoP is an incredible benefit to lower end guilds. Yay for casters!



    Thanks for any input)

    1) I would stay 60 and get all the Aa's you want from Luclin.
    2) Do PoJ trial get access to Pos and PoV, PoV is pretty good xp.
    3) Not in PoV just have a tank in group.
    4) Sorry dont know the answer. peace

    I didn’t even think about getting another AA when PoP came out until I was 65. No AA skill Monks get beats 5 levels.



    EXPing in non-PoP zones is a waste of time.

    Stay 60, save up some AA pts, level to 61 and get wu's, ferocity, punishing blade and then de-level to 60. That will keep you in the thrill and excitement of PoP, then fill up the other AA

    "EXPing in non-PoP zones is a waste of time."



    So is sitting in PoP for hours lfg.



    Currently im getting 1 AA in (+ bot) in SoV (which i can do ANY time, none wasted), and if you take lfg time into account (ie. averaging all time online when i could be getting exp rather than lfg in PoP), i doubt id even beat that in PoV.







    1) If you solo/duo often for exp, i strongly suggest you stay 60. If you're happy to move to PoP and grouping for 95% of your exp, then 61+ might be the thing.



    2) PoV is probably *the* zone for exp atm, from what ive heard, but thats not much use as a lower-end non-flag zone, heh. I think PoN is the place out of the 4 lowest planes at the moment, plenty of camps with high level mobs. Havent hunted much in PoN though, since pickup groups are few and far between, and i doubt they'd be faster than what i can get "solo" anyway.



    3) As a "standard" level 60 monk, you wont be a liability.... but groups arent likely to go out of their way to beg you to join. From my experience, groups can be extremely hard to come by a lot of the time. At a minimum id suggest hitting 61, maye even 62, before you seriously start lfg in PoP, otherwise you probably will get overlooked a fair bit.



    4) /shrug, heh. AA = good, just get it and assume it works <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/tongue.gif ALT=":p">

    I'm doin same thing staying at 60. I dont want to get locked in to only exping in POP.



    However, does pb and Wu's work once you delevel back to 60 again?

    Not really easy to tell if things like PB work if you delevel back to 60, but Wus definately does.



    Im pretty sure all, or atleast most, PoP skills still work if you delevel.

    My experience has been the PoP skills work when you de-level to 60, wu's does for sure, but I have not parsed PB1. It appears too me that I am landing more 2hb, but no parses to verify.

    I was going ot stay on lvl 61 and aa so I could still solo for aa points... but decided aganist that because people look down on you if your lower lvl I got 60-65 in under a week in valor and now i make about 3 aa per day easily there vs 1.2 aa solo in the same time fram pre-pop soloing made almost 100 aa in valor since pop came out I might be able to max them out before the next expansion (up to 278 aa atm)



    here if you want ot see what i spent on

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr>So is sitting in PoP for hours lfg.<hr></blockquote>



    Even factoring LFG time PoP is WAY better for EXP. A normal PoP group of 6 people in the average spots in PoV, PoS, or HoH gives me faster AA than I was getting PLing myself with my Shaman in any non-PoP zone. When I look back at what I was getting in the best of non-PoP zones like CT in a 6-person group I just laugh.



    It’s really up to you and your guild though. We don’t go for that “staying at 60 to get AA” crap. If someone wants to stay level 60 they can join a guild that is still trying to kill Velk <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> .

    I was planning on staying 60 until I get all the basic AA's I want, then worry about the 5 levels later, what's the big deal? People did just fine with lvl 60 for a long time.

    Don't know about your servers but on Xegony in valor lvl 60 is generally looked upon as to low lvl to group there.



    It isn't impossible to get a group this lvl hehe seen people on 59 grouping in valor. but say a 60 monk is LFG and any other dmg class lvl 61 or higher is LFG 9 times out of 10 the monk won't get the group. You also got to think about other monks LFG higher lvl monk LFG means you probly got to wait longer on a group.



    Now you might be thinking I can just solo. Well solo does work quite well I got 196 aa points prepop mostly solo. But those points were gotten solo at the rate of about 1.2 per day hehe . I get 2 aa in valor on a BAD day good days I have gotten 5 a few times and even 6 once.



    getting lvl 65 will make it easier for you to get a group and with Planes of Power the BEST way to get exp is grouped. I used to be a Hard soloer for exp I soloed SOO much for exp but it doesn't compete with grouped anymore





    And the 5 lvls are not that hard to get really. I got 65 a week after I got my valor/storms flag
