Grouped with guildies + FG dailies is probably the best combo for both event boxes and companion leveling. And xp scroll will help.

I've got Ember and Isobel up to about L15 and it is a bit of a slog. Xp scrolls and pledges. Xp scrolls and farming Crimson Cove. Anything with lotsa kills per hour. Lol.

Today in Cyrodiil Jerric found himself wearing a Pact uniform and in need of discussion with a civilian who resides in a Covenant occupied town. While checking out the situation in an uncharacteristically cautious manner, he noticed a merchant and a Dominion Merchant Guard also on the road and approaching the town. They did not see him.

Jerric looked to see if the town flags were still blue. They were. He checked behind him for incoming Dominion forces (none), and then waited to see what would happen.

The Dominion pair strode straight past the Covenant banners and caught the attention of the occupying guards. An argument ensued.

Jerric took the opportunity to jog into town and chat with his civilian. He rode back out while the guards were still distracted. Probably he will be back to liberate the town. Probably multiple times. But today it was nice to just do a good deed and enjoy the sunshine.

Glad that Jerric is enjoying the event. After all, anything with Mayhem in the name surely appeals to him. biggrin.gif

I’m still doing that grind, too. It is somewhat confusing what xp trickles down to the companion. It is certainly not a simple 25% of the player’s xp, as quest completion, for example, is not shared. My preferred method has been the public dungeons, trying to fill the gaps where a character has not yet done the group event. The companion xp comes from all the trash mobs, so it happens without having to think about it, but I keep wondering if soloing normal dungeons would be more xp-dense? Should we spend all our time in FG1 or Crimson Cove?

Companions level based on kills done and how 'big' the foes are. Group vs public dungeons favors public dungeons because tons of trash generates more xp for them faster than a few bigger kills spread out. I have found that Crimson Cove and Obsidian Scar (public dungeon in Rivenspire) work wonderfully in that you can set up circuits of nonstop killing of quickly respawning groups and simply repeat until your fingers get tired. I'm pretty sure the fast density of kills you can rack up in Craglorn around Spellscar wayshrine would rival those public dungeons if you prefer being outdoors. Think 'kills per minute' when trying to level companions. I'm sure you're aware that leveling their skill in the three guilds is different and based only on doing respective dailies.

They are all done with the guild levels on both NA and EU. I need to raise both Isobels and both Embers in combat level, so I guess my current public dungeon strategy stays.

The zombie areas for player level grinding don’t seem to work as well with a companion. The general method for those was to gather up the mobs by running around with a player-centered AOE running, and pause and burn them all down with a different target-centric AOE or two periodically. That breaks down with a companion, as the mobs will divide between you, and you get two separated groups to handle, and the companion may have problems with their share. At least the public dungeons have the groups pre-assembled.

And I think we’re still waiting for the duel fix for Isobel’s achievement. It may be done on PTS, but I’m unsure about live.
