Best Place to Grind Pet Levels?

Postby Koshka » November 24th, 2016, 2:31 pm

I am curious as to where is the best place to grind pet levels. I am not looking to have to travel around to a lot of trainers.

In MOP, I leveled a bunch of pets and several characters in Kun Lai Summit at the hill where the goats are. It has the advantage of not having mobs close by so you can take a low level character there to safely level.

And, that is still an option. But, I've long since captured all the rares there and I'm sick of it and wondered if there are better options. I have 2 characters I can use:

1. Level 64 hunter. She can do this in Pandaria, for example, but has to do it somewhere there aren't mobs around. Using her to do this will help level her as well as the pets. I did level her for awhile on Kun Lai summit. She also was parked at Farmer Nishi for awhile and she would do that battle every day and do some of the wild pets around there. But, due to her level, she couldn't search very far for wild pets so I wasn't able to do high volume leveling there.

2. Some level 100 alt. I have a few level 100 alts that I haven't quested on. I could use them anywhere including in Legion content to level pets.

I am mostly doing this to level up my pets to 125 so want some place where there are a lot of wild pets I can battle. I can do trainers though if there is one or more close to the leveling area. I have a lot of level 25 pets already so should be able to handle most or all trainers.

I'll list the places I've used, the type of lead pet you face, and the availability of Stable Masters. If you want to know more about what pets are optimal for each, ask.

Wyrmrest Temple. Flyers/Aquatics. Your level 64 might have some aggro from the buzzards, but Stable Master is handy.

Crystalsong Forest. Critters. You can avoid mobs, but no stable master. You do need to run around a bit.

Mount Hyjal, Nordrasssil Inn. Flying/Magic. The lake behind the Inn is teeming with wild pets to battle, with few mobs, and handy SM nearby.

Pandaria, Halfhill. Nishi to Lucky Yi. Critters.

Pandaria, Mistfall and No-No. Aquatics. Handy SM at Mistfall. No mobs at No-No, but several people use that spot, and can soak up all the pets that spawn.

Dread Wastes, beside Gorespine. Like No-No, but with beasts as lead pets.

Draenor. Moonlit Shore, Shadowmoon. Ideal for a low-level, since there are no mobs and you can fly even at 60. Crabs as the lead pet. Horde do have to stay away from the edges where there are Alliance NPCs. No SM nearby, but you can fly.

Draenor. Frostfire Ridge. Icespine Hatchlings. If you have a Rotten Little Helper and Feline Familiar for the optimal strat, it goes very well. Like Moonlit Shore, you can fly, but mobs do run around, though sparsely.

There's a thread just below this viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16530 where someone is grinding in Zul'drak. I went there to check, and I can see that with the right lead pet, it goes very well, and if you can fly to the SM it could be very effective.

Go to Halfhill area, it's prime for leveling pets because they almost always have level 22-25 pets that usually heal first/hit soft, and there aren't a lot of other mobs to kill you (you can get around without aggroing, etc).

Hi,

And don't forget to use Ashlei every day, for a push from level 12/13 to 17 or 18 ... and the like. Some folks know how to do it so you can do a lower level, however, I stick with Nether Fae Dragon, and the low pet, and then the Mechanical Dragonling so I can use the block for Tally's charge. Essentially, you can bring a lot of mid levels up further, one a day kind of thing, but it is faster than grinding.

And don't forget Squirt ... if you check the "Far Out Number" thread, I have now used Squirt twice (not sure when she is on next) and have pretty much leveled off everything, and in one day, I cleared up almost 800 levels ... kinda sick and tiring, but it was nice to see the results!

I think Uduwudu meant Ashlei.

And BTW, the MPD solos Ashlei very nicely with a level 1 or even 2 level 1s, though they split the XP if you use 2.

That would be me that has been using Zul'drak and yes, it's very good with the right team. The round trip circuit back to the Stable Master takes about 30-ish seconds (with the right team, you only need it occasionally) and the spawns of Water Wavelings are unlike anything I've found anywhere else. There are mobs of larger elementals, but they're very easy to avoid.

You get a very predictable battle and you can level and should get a few lucky Stones along the way. I think I got 4 stones last week leveling several different pets. For simplicty's sake, I settled on a Slithershock Elver + Molten Hatchling team plus your Lv 5 or so Carry Pet. There are teams that can win the fights faster, but then you end up having to heal a lot more while this team just keeps going. By the time they need healing, you simply use your Revive Pets spell or occasionally zip back to the Stable Master. I haven't tried an area in Panderia yet, but will be doing so soon enough.

Typo fixed. Thanks.

It's just right off the Alliance Garrison, where some Orcs have stationed themselves. It's one of the 6 dailies, when you get the Battlemasters quest once a week, so you can get 10 Leveling stones (singles), and that means 10 levels, but the extra PC's (2) in these fights are almost worth doing daily, although I only do 3 of them (Shadowmoon, Spires of Araq and Talador), unless I need it for the weekly quest.

Note here. When you get the Battlemasters weekly, immediately cycle through ALL your characters, because you might have one of those extra fights at the Garrison, and it counts as one Battlemaster, and you might not have to do the more difficult ones like the one with Cymre, and sometimes with Tarr.

For Pandaria, I have used the area in the Valley that has all the striders, mostly near both Alliance and Horde locations. On the Jade Forest, up and down the big river is nice. Other than that, I have used the Timeless Isle, and here these fights are easy once you know how to handle them, but be prepared to lose a few as some of the moths KNOW how to start the fight and play the game! In between you can run to the pet repair folks (2 of them).

The undead pet spawns in garrison respawn instantly and are right next to a healer. I ground out quite a few levels during the last 3x exp week. Was a bit surprised to see that they didn't get removed after halloween.

I still do the MoP + WoD tamer circuit when I need to level a lot of pets. You can do all 17 tamers (sometimes with a bonus 18 Wrath/Northrend tamer) in an hour with the right teams, so it fits nicely into the pet food experience buffs.

If I want to mindlessly grind on wild pets, I still do the icespine hatchlings in Frostfire ridge.
