Grinding Guide

see also: Leveling Guide

Accepted Best Practice is to keep your primary and secondary class levels within 5 of each other. Be sure to switch back and forth regularly. A gap of only 2 levels is even better, but only so you do not have to swap classes as often.

IF you are in the unenviable position of unwisely having leveled one class faster than the other, you are probably stuck grinding kills or Daily quests to make up the difference. Or perhaps you have just acquired a "tertiary" class but have already done every quest in the game.

In "most" zones, there will be a few Daily quests that can be repeated more quickly than others. Some of these do not even require any fighting. The table below attempts to note these, by level range, to help you do this more quickly. There is some overlap and you shoud definitely move on as soon as you meet the minimum level requirement for the next quest.

Generally, but not always, the Min. Level is 2 levels below the level of the quest, and Max. Level should be 10 levels above (but useful max is probably 5 above). XP actually declines before you reach the turn-in min, so it is best to aim for a gap of 2-5 levels, max. When you fail to do that, well, that is the main reason you end up on this page, right?

It has been pointed out that many stop leveling the Secondary class at 70 and push only the Primary to max, then go back and grind the Secondary to max. This may be advisable as Main quest series XP is a finite resource.

Stub Obviously, the intent is to eventually expand this table to show ideal grinding Dailies for every level, but this will take time. If you can contribute, please feel free. 1-50 is not that hard, but leveling slows down after 50. For that reason, we will focus on post-50 grinding.
Stub When I started this page I intended to only list the BEST Dailies to use for grinding, but eventually I started adding all of them. I am really not sure which approach is ideal, but doing multiple dailies helps keep you from getting bored.

Lands of Despair (1-69)[edit | edit source]

While Main quests in other zones, and here, are always preferable, there are no Dailies anywhere that reward better XP than those in Coast of Opportunity and Xaviera. For those levels 1 through 63, this is the place to do your Dailies.

For comparison, [21][Daily] Tusk Research in Lyk rewards only 1,959 XP, while [21][Daily] Don't Eat Gazelle Meat for Now in Shuma Valley pays 6,532 XP.

We have seen players as high as 70 still doing the dailies here, as the following 4 quests have the best Daily XP you will find anywhere for 48-63. According to Minipoo, when you add the Combat XP to the Dailies, the improved XP tops out at level 69. Sadly, only the Gargoyle's Shimmering Right Eye Gargoyle's Shimmering Right Eye can be stockpiled.
If this is actually your first time through, you should move on to Main quests in Weeping Coast at 48 (Main quests there start at 50) but only once you finish the Main quests here. Daily quests still give better XP here so you will want to go back and forth.

There are a lot of Dailies in this zone available at level 87, but we do not recommend them as there is no House Maid there. All level 90 quests (avail. at 88) in this zone are Public.
