Pet battle exp

Pet Battles
Only 6k exp per win at level 85? You might as well just remove exp gain all together..
I agree. I finally thought blizzard threw alt levelers a bone by giving us another way to level but then they ruin it. Wonder if they lost more pet battlers then gained with this change that was intended to bring more pet battlers.
Actually if you go out to a level appropriate zone you still get a good chunk of exp, I got 60k for doing a pet battle right below Dalaran on a level 75 toon. All they did was prevented you from farming critters in SW.
Basically useless now, it's faster and you get more xp just to grind minions let alone questing.
Waaaaaaaaah, I can't exploit an obvious bug anymore. Waaaaaaaah.

Thanks for the info mishaela. Is that the amount you are getting from quests as well?

It wasn't a bug it was intended. The bug being exploited was people stacking xp bonuses to go 1-85 in an hour or two. Learn your facts before looking like an idiot
Im only getting 10 exp a fight in Eleywen forest with a level 6 warlock. How is this right? I am starting over with new pets i just caught at level 1, still ONLY getting 10 exp a fight. This is bull crap if you ask me.

If it wasn't a bug it wouldn't have been hotfixed, now would it?

It was hot fixed due to people using the xp bonuses. Pet leveling can still be done. Your point is moot sorry to tell ya :/
Why should a pet battle give the same xp as a quest?

Make the xp be roughly what you'd get for killing a mob.

Because then its easier to just go kill the mob. The change wasn't intended for those who already enjoy pet battles. It was intended for those who do not pet battle because they do not see an incentive. And lets face it incentives for doing something is what WoW has become. I for one would have never looked at pet battling if they didn't add xp.
It takes < 10 seconds to kill a mob. It takes much longer to do a pet battle.

I'm getting drastically reduced EXP on my level 68 in PvP matches. PvP matches tend to pit me against higher level pets, when I won (pre-hot-fix) and got 20kexp I was hyped. Because:

A: I don't win every game in PvP
B: Player PvP matches last for several minutes
C: The EXP reward was similar in what I would take to do a quest, I do quests about that fast, and quests have a 0% chance of me losing due to random dodges or critical hits

It seemed pretty fair to me. But now I'm getting 4-6k EXP... :(
