    It’s awesome grinding in an instance if you have a lvl70 epic mage though….”this is for lvl 45+” I went in zul farrek with a 70 mage and was getting like 250 rested each kill, with like 10 kills at once, so it was a hell of alot of xp after we wiped out the whole place….just had myself “fury warrior” 70 mage and i think a 46 priest or something, so I imagine if you get a well geared 70 to grind instances with you between 50-60 that should work nicely

    I’ll give you a tip that I learnd while leveling my mage (3rd character to 60, 1st 60+). I solo leveled 1-60 on all three of my characters. But on my mage i found myself slipping past 60. I realised that on my own i was loosing motivation, and there for leveling, but at a pace not even worth it. 100k an hour sounds good, when it is an hour. So i tried out leveling with a guildie, we run around knocking out quests, having fun, and we ended up making about 120k exp each hour.

    It is tru, solo leveling is much better and quicker. For some people. For those of you struggling, or finding that you’ve been fine up until about lvl 50-70, i recomend trying this out. I’ve had fun with it, and gained 7 levels in a short amount of time. Im considering doing it on my hunter aswell 🙂 Anyway, thats just my 2cents. Works for some people doesnt for others :d have fun guys
