    Your XP Strategies

    One of mine is enter as big a game as possible make sure you can teleport, run through the whole pit while people are still in the game.Soon as either everyone has left or you have uncovered every area of the pit start killing stuff.The idea behind this is that you mark all the monster packs as player 8 so even when everyone has gone the packs are still player 8 packs.

    i find a Baal-walk &/or a full clean-out of the River Of Flame and Chaos Sanctuary in a big game to yield pretty decent XP when trying to level up over lvl95.

    duel/pk games are good for these.

    Are you sure you still get /p8 experience even if all the players have left? I'm pretty sure you dont get /p8 droprates, even though their health gets locked in at /p8 levels...not sure which side of that the exp falls on, though I imagine it's calculated upon death, not upon monster activation

    I am pretty sure you get /p8 experience, not sure about drops, but they seem normal /p1 drops.

    I have cleared for example maggot lair that way over 100 times.
    While soloing maggot lair I get ~half level and while clearing same area using that tele through trick, i got ~2 levels per game *).

    *) Those levels per game are ~80 chars, level 60 char gets over 5 levels per game and lvl 85 less than one level.

    Chaos and baal in 8 pp games. Find a mf clan because im sure that they do baaling often in 8 pp environments and split in between drops. Its just so hard to find a mf clan nowaday. East is filled with baaling clans and most of them are no good.

    Another one of mine is I move to act 2 at level 12 rather than 15 and do the begining areas solo while others are doing Tristram I seem to level much faster that way.Its especially true if some high level is joining(which I think is bearly beneficial)to help the low levels, diluting the exp.

    Actually the next area of exp the tombs can often be a better place to get to 25 rather than cows simply because it takes forever to find a cow game and tomb runs last a long time so fewer minutes between runs.

    I just make games called "Team Trist/Tombz/etc" and slaughter stuff with other chars of the same level, these games get joiners fast and give optimal experience considering you are killing monsters stronger then you could take on alone and are killing them fast, where as leveling alone in an 8p game you kill a lot slower and might not even be able to kill enemies as strong as the one the others are running.

    Depends on the skills you use,skills like Fissure ,Blaze and Holy fire all work well solo as they can kill big groups at once.Obviously skills like Zeal,Fireball,Charged bolt etc might struggle.

    MoMoDic gave you the answer,theres no need to level them up if you buy a new one they will be closer to your level.At high level mercs level fast anyway.

    I use a 1.07 Ravenclaw to blast through most of normal on /players8. Levels 15-40 are pretty quick. Oh, is this bnet only? :) Well, if you are on NL, maybe you can get your hands on a Ravencannon..... But, if not, do like mephiz and have a high level enchanter enchant you, then equip a ravenclaw and fly through all of normal in a full game.
