Leveling Through Pet Battles. Thoughts?

General Discussion
So we can level by questing.

We can level in dungeons.

We can level in battlegrounds.

We can even get xp from gathering professions.

...Why is it that pet battles don't give xp?

I find this minigame extremely enjoyable and really wish that I could gain a few levels on my lowbie toons by doing it.

Anyone else feel the same way?
Sure, why not.

It would be a good excuse to pet battle on some alts and such.

I mean, I leveled two alts almost entirely from 85 to 87 on a ton of herbing/mining/general gathering.
Some pet battle xp would be nice.
If we could have leveled by pet battles, I would have had realm first 90. >_>

It's because you don't learn how to play your class by fighting only with pets.


As opposed to learning how to play your class by picking flowers/mining?

Eh....

The only reason I don't really like this is because your character isn't fighting. He or she is never getting any better because they might as well be standing behind your pokemon team naked!

Not a profession though. Those weren't meant to actually "level" seriously with, just a bonus. I'd be fine if they werent even perks anymore.


^_^. But my logic is that both professions and pet battles are fun little diversions that can be done while leveling.

However one gives xp to compensate for time lost, and one doesn't.

It's not a *massive* thing, but it is something I'd really like to see. Even if the gains were similar to professions/BGs (ie. sub-optimal for leveling).

I wouldn't disagree aside from the fact that you can say the *exact* same thing about herbing/mining.

you get exp from exploring zones. A very small amount, but still.
sounds like a great idea.

Yeah but at least your DOING something there. Its not much, but you work somewhat for herbing/minng.

Pet battles you stand there. You deserve to be about as buff as Ash Ketchum.

Blizzard couldn't make it too good though.

I'd actually be happy with a daily PvP pet battle quest, a small amount from wild pet battles and the Trainer quests.
