I spent some time this evening on the PTR checking out the new increased pet leveling speed. This is a summary of what I found, in case you don’t want to read the long liveblogged post about it. :>
- The XP that pets need to level has been reduced — from 25% to 16.75% of the XP that a player of the same level requires. In other words, pets require 33% less XP to level on the PTR.
- Pets still do not earn XP when the hunter completes a quest.
- Pets still do not earn XP from kills that are grey to the hunter.
- The XP-per-kill that a pet receives shows no changes between the PTR and the live realms.
