View Full Forums : Speed of AA collection

08-16-2010, 06:50 PM
I heard something in guild chat a couple of days ago, and wasn't able to follow up. It sparked some questions in my mind about when to start collecting AA's. For background I tend to solo a lot, and do some grouping, and very very little raiding.

In guild chat they recommended postponing AA collection. The statement was something along the line that killing an even con creature while lvl 61 would net a bigger percentage of an AA than killing an even con creature as a lvl 51 player.

AA's were a new concept last time I played so I haven't really done much with them. (About all i have done so far is to max Innate Run Speed on my cleric so far.)

My Druid is 62 at the moment and don't know that I could tell you that having no AA's is holding me back, YET! I'm I missing anything here? Are there AAs that are important to levelling for an ok equiped Druid?

Can only tell you that the sooner the better, but at lvl 63 there aren't many to buy. I would recommend leveling first as the gear and spells will bring you much more power than the aas will. Plus AAs go a LOT faster now than they used to, especially at a low aa count.

I know this is an "old" post but for anyone else looking at it....

The old theory was to get max level before AA'ing. WIth the revamp and the inflation on mob HP's that is no longer the case.

All I will say is that 62, 65, 70, 71, and 76 are sweet spots for AA'ing for a Druid. And because the class is so AA dependent, Grabbing AA's when the mobs have very few HP's is always an advantage.
