I haven't played in a while, so I guess I'm a bit out of the loop. So...title?

Taking a group into Stormstout Brewery to AoE grind monkey trash for XP from level 85 up.

The funny part is when people talk about it like it's the greatest thing. Any normal person would spend their time doing something else. Monkey runs are the xp equivalent to gold farming.

So because I like to level up super fast I'm not normal?

People actually do this? I've never seen this advertised on my realm... The thought of doing it is kind of hilarious to me and I can't figure out why.

Sounds boring indeed.
I'd stick to my slow questing but after leveling my 3rd character through Jade Forest.
This seems like a better option ><

Is it that fast? I also think it sounds boring as hell. But if it's fast, I guess that's a redeming thing.

Is it really any faster than leveling normally?

actually, the original "monkey run" was taking a lowbie out by the Dooker Dome. Set him down in the middle (cliffs).. AOE right side.. then right lower.. repeat for left.. by the time you do Left Lower.. right upper has respawned. (meaning the TWO monkey areas in Kun Lai.. not JUST the Dooker Dome)

However.. it's MUCH faster to fly them around and kill rares, Zandalari's and pick up Easter Egg Items (One Man's Trash...).. plus the Zand rares drop rep tokens for the 90's helping out, and the Rares drop satchels for Motes/Herbs/ore, etc. but most rares in DW are around 400 - 750k XP (depending on level) Zand Rares are also around 700k+ and some Easter Egg items are 1m+ XP EACH

Well if you drink too much prune juice you run faster than a monkey to the bathroom. Because you got the monkey runs.

just leveled my druid to 90, went from 85 - just under 89 in nothing but dungeons and i wanted to shoot myself in the face, I can only imagine how bad it would have been if I had only done monkey runs instead of entire dungeons

I'm not a dungeon grinder, and it is boring. It is also getting hotfixed in 5.3 :D


How are you able to read Blizzard's mind to find out what they'll be doing for hotfixes before the patch is even out?

It sounds disgusting. I'd rather just quest, instead of telling someone I'm doing "monkey runs".

I loved questing in Pandaria from 85 to 90 the first time. I'm absolutely HATING having to do it for the 3rd time. Worst thing is you only have 2 dungeons to run for a LONG time.
