    You might know about this but if not here's how it works.

    1. Get in a group for Invasion.
    2. Tag everything you see.
    3. Do this until Stage 3 starts.
    4. Leave group, log out.
    5. Log back in. You are in Stage 1. See step 1; rinse, repeat.

    10 levels per hour and more shards then I know what to do with. I'm at 500+ right now. GL out there.

    You can only loot the satchel from Stage 2 once.

    Nice find. I added up all my Nethershards last night and have almost 13K of them, and I've bought 7 Pets, 2 Cloaks and various Consumables. 10 Levels per hour with that trick is insanity.

    Can't imagine it wouldn't but even if it doesn't my buddy last night got 3.5 Levels starting at 90 from 2 Invasions. He did have max Rested XP and used a full set of Looms, except the Ring. He didn't however have any XP Vials.

    I've leveled one character from 90-100 and one from 93-100 using a similar method that I posted yesterday.

    Basically what I do is I complete stages 1-3 (I let stage 4 begin). I AFK stage 1 but I tag everything I can during stage 2 and 3. Once stage 3 is complete I fly to the nearest zone (e.g. Elwynn Forest if I'm in Westfall) and I sit there for about 2-3 minutes and then I return to the invasion zone (Westfall in this case) and it is stage 1 again.

    While our methods may seem rather similar you are missing out stage 3 which gives the vast majority of the XP.

    Remember to keep your invasion crates until you're level 100.

    Good luck!

    stage 3 gives the most exp!! my lvl 15 mage just gained 60~ 70% xp per skull mob(at 90s, each gave me 13% xp)
    if you have flying skill, do up to stage 3 then reset.
    and even if you don't,l try killing some near skull mobs before you reset

    So I have a few updates:

    You can complete Stage 3, like @adol said. I found it to be slow though as you have to ride out of town. And you are prone to more deaths as the elites hit hard.
    You DO NOT need to be in a group, it resets just fine solo. However the group will tag things for you and you get the same XP so it's worth doing.

    Stage 3 isn't bad, just follow group and tag, especially if it's Westfall.

    90 in 16 hours played, so 5.6 lvls per hour.

    Ok if you have flyer just jump from zone to zone and complete, no reset. Going very fast, there's 6 every 2 hrs now. Shard cap is 2k.

    Also @LennywBT
    /script T,F=T or 0,F or CreateFrame("frame")if X then X=nil print("OFF.")else print("ON.") X=function()local t=GetTime()if t-T>1 then StaticPopup1Button1:Click()T=t end end end F:SetScript("OnUpdate",X)
