    Default Leveling Warders

    I have seen a few posts concerning this and even someone saying they are leveling theirs in 20 min from Jouneyman to Adept. Well I don't get it, how are you doing it? I have been on my rodent for 3 hours, I get affinity 80% of the time and still he is on journeyman. I have gone from level 49 to 54 during that time, he remained the same.

    Is there a trick to this? Am I doing something wrong? I will tell you I have moved the Warden spells to a hot bar so I can use them easier and make sure I use them to get affinity, is this the problem?

    I have also seen someone mention taking a potion, do the exp potions help the warders to level faster too?

    Thanks for any help here, at this rate I will have my first at mythical after I hit 90.

    Clearly you are doing something wrong, because the math here doesn't add up. Or you have no idea what you're talking about with the "80%", or you are looking at a pet's progress bar in your inventory that does not correspond to the pet that's currently up. If your warder is attacking the mob in every fight, and you get an Advantage lighting up at least once during that fight, and you click the Advantage, yes it takes 20min or less to get Adept. You are not doing at least one or more of these things. You should either drag the big red X on your pet's hotbar to your own hotbar and click it every fight or at least set your pet to defend you. If you are still doing all of these things and still not getting skillups, type "/exit" and stop playing this game.

    I'm not a noob and I have asked others in game, and this has stumped them too. I have fought side by side with another BL doing exactly the same things, called them out on the headset as we did them and yet, it doesn't level. So I guess I should have asked a GM instead of coming here, thanks for the "help".

    Going spiritual and fighting encounters helps from what ive seen. Thats what some are recommending in WW chat. Also make sure the advantage you use doesnt kill the mob your fighting. if it kills it you wont get affinity. other than that its pretty simple.

    like evercrack said just make sure you hit an advantage every fight.

    Gerras, are you using the default UI, or another?

    Most non-default UI persona windows are not compliant (I think profit fixed theirs last night, or so Im told), if you are using profit, update it, if you're using another, delete the persona file in your custom UI folder and log back in and see if this fixes your warders exp bar.

    I just read in another thread that there seems to be an issue sometimes where the wardens aren't leveling. It was recommened to get another in the same class, I did and suddenly leveled in about 30 min.

    I would like to mention here based on my own experiments.... if your advantage kills a mob, you do in fact gain affinity from it. The kill shot is stockpiled until the next kill. Two ways I know this to be true: 1.) advantage kills mob... next fight, I don't use advantage.. pet gets affinity. Fight after that I don't use advantage, pet does not get affinity. 2.) Advantage kills mob. I decide to do a player dungeon. First kill inside the dungeon awards me pet affinity, and no other kill in there does.

    If you don't believe me try it for yourself. As to warders not lvling... something is wrong because I have not had any problems. I load up spiritual stance and go to town. I have a few GM pets at rk5 and a couple at rk 6, most other pets are lower because I am going one at a time. I hope you get it figured out soon because if enough of these mysterious "my warder isn't lvling" threads appear, SoE might "fix" things.

    From my experience it's like this:

    You need to do at least one advantage on the mob BEFOR you kill it. Deathstroke does not count. So if you kill the mob with a advantage and you didn't use a advantage on him befor in the fight (happens to me with weaker mobs, because I sometimes kill them with one attack) then you won't get an affinity gain. If you use a advantage (2nd advantage that doesn't do dmg but only buffs will do, so you don't kill it with it) and then finish him off will give you an affinity gain. So it doesn't matter if you kill it with an advantage or not, but you have to had used a advantage in the fight bevor the mob dies.

    And from what I've seen, I don't think one affinity gain message is a fixed amount, since when I did longer fights (epics in SoH to test Solo-abilities) I've used several advantages on the mob befor he died and it felt like the advancement was going faster as if I'm fighting heroics and solomobs. I don't know though if it's because the mob was epic or if it's because I could use more advantages in one fight. I'm going to do more testing next week when I'm home from my family, happy holidays Beastlords.

    It must be a bug or something with you. I can take a pet from lvl 1 to lvl 6 in 2.5 hours killing heroics in spiritual stance using advantages every time they are up.
