LoL at the monkey run

General Discussion
I saw a few people spam "LFM monkey run".
So I wrote down their names.

They are level 87 Saturday morning and 87 today :)
o.O I thought they nerfed that a while back?

I think so but it is still the quickest way to 90, the problem is finding a group who will do it for 5 hours...

Probably couldn't get a team around, oh noesssss
Monkey run?
Does a "monkey see monkey do" reference make sense here?

The XP for the monkeys at the beginning of the Brewery dungeon are supposed to be the fastest farming way to get to 90 from 85. Clear them out, leave, clear them out again, leave, clear them out again, leave, clea- and so on.

I heard it was nerfed, but even if it wasn't, that's some insanity-causing Shining stuff right there.

All monkeys and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Running Stormstout Brewery, killing all the monkeys, leaving and doing it again for fast XP.
I used a level 86 to join and see.

If the tank is level 87 or less, they cannot chain pull all the way to the boss.
The progress is very slow.

With rest bonus, it is 5k per monkey.
40 monkeys = 200k per run.
Is that nerfed?
Monkeys? You mean hozen?

Ah... people keep that up and blizzard will reduce their xp or worse... remove it. Anyone who thinks otherwise only needs to look at people who farmed lovely charms via Sholzar Basin.
questing from 85-90 gives you like 8k gold, why not?


You can always go back after 90 and get that gold plus more. Also it's nice to have the crafted gear to literally blast through them.
Pet Battles > Monkey Run > Quest

Pet battles, while nerfed, still give 180kexp @ lvl 23+

That can't be right. I mean, maybe your figures are right, but who would run an instance over and over just for trash, for a net 200k xp? A single quest, even at 85, gives like 125k-150k xp. Once you get up to 88-90, they're giving over 200k xp per.

How long do these trash runs take? Doing one-two quests would probably take five, on average.
If done correctly, each run takes 3 minutes.
