I've been noticing that Invasions take a bit longer than they usually do, due to people finally wisening up to the process of XP farming Invasions. I don't know if they are longer in all zones, but they are definitely longer in lowbie zones such as Dun Morogh, Azshara, and Northern Barrens ( places with nearby Rested areas for easy logging out). For those unfamiliar with Invasion XP Farming here's how it goes: 1. Type 1 in chat for invite to group for mass tagging and +group XP bonus. 2. Tag as many mobs as possible through stage 1 and 2. 3. Get to a rested area and log out. 4. Log Back In. 5. Rinse and Repeat. This leads to a much longer stage 3 and Final Stage, where there are considerably less players to clear all the mobs. Is anyone else having similar experiences? And which zone is best for straight-up AFK box farming? Also: People are claiming that Stage 3 gives a lot of XP. While true, I would say it's a net loss of XP/minute. The primary loss of efficiency is A. Travel Time, B. Kill Time. Travel time is a massive loss of XP/minute, anyone who is familiar with Leveling Times would know that for a fact. Even with a flying mount, it is a pain to travel to Boss mobs and either: 1. miss the fight or 2. be the only one there. Kill Time is a major issue as well, as many players leave after Stage 2, so it becomes difficult to kill large boss mobs efficiently.
