    Seems like it's higher than that. I was powerlevelling my wife's alt the other night in Palace of the Awakened with my SK, and I was mass pulling on the top floors (where the dragons spawn) and the mobs were all 70-71. Same crazy OP pulls even mentored down to 75. Before that we were laying waste to Sanctum of the Scaleborn with me self-mentored down to 70. Same thing - boom boom love you long time.

    What dungeon is there from 75-80? PoA isn't going to hack it when most of it is low green at 73 or 74.

    RoK dungeons maybe? At 75 we went to KC. She was getting more exp per kill but mobs have higher hitpoints, so we went back to PoA and it went much faster. We plan on just playing it by ear but I was thinking maybe Chardok at 76 and compare that to PoA.

    I'm sure PL groups with better gear or maybe more than one PL'er would do better in KC. My SK is in T2 shard gear with about 6 or 7 pieces of fabled gear so I wonder what the difference would be. But certainly I'm not geared good enough for mass pulls in KC.

    So we're experimenting and so far killing a dozen or so greens in the time it takes to kill one blue is much better exp for her. I think in PoA it took about 2-3 hours for her to get about 70% of 75 and that's where we left it because we normally just play on weekends.

    EDIT: At 73-74 we were golden in PoA because the top levels of the dungeon were all blue to her with low hitpoints and easy mass pulls. I think we did 73 and 74 in one good session there.

    you're limited in how many points you can have.... till 50, capped at 50, till 70, capped at 100? sounds close anyways. can't put more than 50 points in any tree before 70, then it goes to 70 in each of the first 2 trees and 65 in shadows.

    caps are going to change at SF launch.
    But will i recieve AA even if combat xp is switched off?

    If i wanna get tons of AA at a specific lvl so i can pvp alot when i feel for it and always run with max AA for my lvl this sounds like a good way to do it.

    you dont want to turn off combat exp anymore with the AA slider, just turn the slider to 100% and you will be level-locking yourself for AA grinding, if you turn off combat exp and set the slider to 100% or even if you don't, you'd only be receiving quest exp/AA and named AA, that's it.

    The slider level locks you and makes all that easy combat exp turn into easy AA. If I'm not mistaken putting it at 100% even turns the quest exp towards AA exp, but I can't verify that right now.

    With the slider at 100% you effectively level lock yourself. All xp goes to AA.

    I'm a swash and have Charm of the Lost + Burning Lavastud + Proc gear and T4 lifetap (which isn't affected, nor is evasive maneuvers by mentoring) and went from 0-80 in less then 2 days of /play with an amazing amount of ease.

    However - seems like others have beaten me here when it comes down to that

    But I thought it was a good effort

    Been able to get a toon 0-80 in under a day, easy as an AE class.
