Leveling using Darkmoon Faire Trainer

Postby Jordicus » January 6th, 2013, 2:06 pm

probably lots of ways to do this, but I've just leveled 5 lvl 20-22 pets up to 25 in the course of an hour with the Darkmoon Faire Trainer. here's my lineup:

Lil Deathwing - Tail Sweep / Roll / Elementium Bolt
Fluxfire Feline - Pounce / Windup / Supercharge
??? - Profit!

start with Deathwing vs. Eye.

1) Elementium Bolt, Roll, Tail Sweep and the Eye is less than 200 HP and stunned. He swaps in Tonk. Tail Sweep until deathwing dies.
2) swap in leveling pet, attack 1-3 times to finish tonk. Hopefully still having at least 1/3 of your HP left
3) Eye comes back, takes one hit and dies.
4) perform 1 action with the leveling pet against Monkey, which will eat the Stun.
5) swap to Fluxfire, and do the typicall Windup, Supercharge, Windup

If you are really unlucky with misses/dodges, you may have to forfeit and restart. biggest challenge is that I'm winning faster than the 8 min cooldown on Revive Battle Pets, but fortunately I have tons of Bandages.... 8-)

How are you doing this? He's only offering me the daily on one toon and then I can't battle him anymore?

As the normal pet dailys was hotfixed into not being repeatable (could not disband it once it was completed), then this probably will be fixed soon aswell.
Would you call this exploiting? Not sure if I'd dare use this. But it's for sure a quick way to level.

Found a rather failsafe mode in doing this (5/5 so far). And since not all got Deathwing, but pretty much everyone can get Lil Ragnaros.

Use Lil Ragnaros & a P/S Fluxfire (289 speed, faster than the eye and tank) and a random pet that survives 1 hit.

Fluxfire (specc 2,1,2)
Ragnaros (1,1,2)

Start out with Fluxfire (pump him up with 2 and 3)
Change to your leveling pet and just let it get hit (dont go for 2 rounds)
Change to Ragnaros and start with the trap and then submerge, don't submerge again until you get a chance to another trap (but I won fight with no trap triggering at all). Fight with Raggy till he dies
Remember not to use Wind Up on the magic, since it wont take more than 40% in one hit (directly after a 40% you can tho).

It's harder to win if the tank starts the fight. Much easier if the Eye starts. But so far I have not died and my leveling-pet have been lvl 8-15).

Considering that he is designed to require a token every time you battle him I am pretty positive it is intended. Otherwise they would have just given him the same mechanics as the other Trainers.

If you are on the original Pandaran Spirit Tamers quest, you can battle them multiple times as well... That is assuming you are a masochist.... :lol:

They seem to have fixed this with today's restart. Now I'm forced into the quest completion dialog after beating him once, I can't choose another battle.

Oh well.

I did two battles with him last night (before reset) and decided it really wasn't worth it. Battles in the wild (Vale specifically) were much faster and I picked up 4 aquatic stones and an unbound Flawless, so even if they hadn't fixed it, I'd rather battle in the wild for more stone chances.

Yeah, last night was the first time I took advantage of it and it was pretty boring. You're right, plain old wild battling (or rotating through trainers) is plenty fast.

rather bummed about this hotfix. not sure why a trainer you have to pay to battle, only available once a month for a limited time, is a game-breaking issue...

On a side note, is there anything more frustrating than losing repeatedly, for no other reason than your level 25 pet missed his level 25 pet five or six bloody times in a row? Grrrrr!
