Leveling Horde Hunter Lvl 50 – 5455 Grinding Zone.By admin On March 16, 2009 Under horde
Hello again guys and gals… this is the second guide for a hunter I have posted.
I truly enjoy grinding……..and just killing mobs repeatedly for long periods of time., not because Im a mad asian gold farmer, but because you can see the effort reflected in your exp bar much quicker!
There is probably some superior areas for a hunter, however I found this one to be realitively quiet during the day and dead during the evening hours. Obviously this could vary from server to server……..but I suspect it will be consistent.
The mobs are especially easy for me to defeat, and there are loads all spread out nicely so you won’t find yourself fighting two at a time….yet close enough to avoid excessive running. All in all, great killing and very low downtime.
Okay..here’s the good stuff, the area is in Azshara, The Shattered Strand. This is the beach running down the east side of Azshara. It comprises a huge area, and all the mobs are from lvl 51-54. (The 54′s are just off the beach in the water). However, as a hunter using this mod http://www.curse-gaming.com/mod.php?addid=221 I could easily kill the lvl 54s at lvl 50.
On the mod, – this basically makes sure your pet has enough focus to growl and keep the mob at distance so your can whiddle down his health him with your bow/gun. Just enable the bite/claw/growl and it is absolutely perfect! I can take on mobs lvl 56 at lvl 50 with this mod and a fully skilled bear. Its the best mod I’ve found for WoW…….I highly recommend it.
As for the mobs there, humanoids are around…….but dont drop any form of cloth, they just drop loads of shells that you open to give Zesty Clam Meat and quite a few pearls, I’ve had 3 golden ones so far too. They drop reasonable cash (average about 5-7s). There are some ranged ones and some long range ones but they are fairly easy to defeat. I find that I only have to stop and eat or drink in every 20 kills or so.
Now, the exp is good (so I think). I can make around 20k a hour taking it slow and can push to 25k if I really go for it, and from lvl 50, you looking at about 7hours to lvl to 51 which is okay. =)
The method I use (may not be the most effective but works) is, Send Pet, Hunters Mark, Serpent Sting, Concussive shot, (by this time your pet has reached it and aggroed it), now just sit back and kill away… to save time I have, a. Put a macro for Hunters Mark and Pet Attack and b. Send pet and cast hunters mark before I loot the one Ive killed so my pet is allready aggroed him before I start beating up on him.
Now using the method above I chew through about 3200 arrows per 2 hours, so the way i work it is, stay there till I run out, hearth back to Orgrimmar, sell items and junk, restock and get flight path back to Azshara, run straight east, jump off the cliff and repeat….
Anyways, it worked for me and still is… best time I go is around 10pm GMT till about 9.30am GMT. Have fun and hope this works.
P.S there is no skinning here or beasts to slay, so some hunters may find it counter productive for leatherworking but its just for grinding. and i find a Elixir of the mongoose can help them down quicker.
