Legion leveling pet dailies

Postby Tffnynelson » September 29th, 2016, 6:33 pm

So has anyone started a list of what daily trainers are worth using for leveling?

If you just want to level pets, it seems that Sternfathom's Pet Journal gives you infinite tamer fights, so no need to look further.

You just know they gotta nerf that at some stage....

From Jerebear's Carry Pet Experience Reference:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=8829

For Pandaria tamers:
experience = 12.5*[ (your_pet_level + 9)*(30 - your_pet_level) ]

I just did a Shipwrecked Captive battle with a level 21. No hat, no buffs.

I got 2025 XP

That works out at
experience = 7.5*[ (your_pet_level + 9)*(30 - your_pet_level) ]

7.5 is the multiplier used for pre-Pandaria tamers.

I see comments saying that he used to give better XP. I assume his factor was nerfed from 12.5 to 7.5.

I actually regard this as good news for people who are levelling pets. With Squirt, Blizzard restricted the cheap levelling to one day every few weeks, and that day was a nightmare. I might have expected Blizzard to restrict Shipwrecked Captive to once per week, or perhaps once per day, or once per week per character. Instead they seem to have nerfed him to give 60% of his original experience, but he can be battled at any time, as much as you like. I'd call that a good deal. :)

Add in that you don't need to travel anywhere and it's really not such a bad deal, especially during a pet exp week. Hopefully they don't nerf him more before the next week at least!

The more I think about it, the more I realise that kids these days don't know how easy they got it. :P

You still have the traditional wild battles, and lower-level tamers.

You still have Draenor and Pandaria, for full tamer XP, but limited to 17 battles per day, with an hour's travelling.

You still have Squirt, for unlimited turbo-powered fast levelling one day every few weeks.

And now you also have Shipwrecked Captive, for unlimited anytime half-fat tamer XP.

Plus, of course, Stones and Charms.
