To say it was crazy - is to say nothing. Horrible lag, people everywhere, all spawn points capped! I valiantly tried getting my share of EXP there, but it just was too slow.
An action plan was put in place almost instantly. Got a few guildies and we went onto dungeon runs. It works out that this is actually way faster! First two dungeons - Temple of the Jade Serpent and Stormstout Brewery - are very easy. We ended up netting about 7-8% of level EXP per run! After running a few as a DPS - I switched to protection and tanked them as well. Videos are coming up! Now it's work time.
