Yeah, we did this. The guide has a lot of info, some that we never thought of. Really sneaky to stand near mobs when dinging,
I followed Drahque's guide as well. But I couldn't really comprehend how chained kill works and more importantly, how to chain. Soon or later, I'm in an empty space and without any ressource to move quickly to the next spot.
I don't see why I must stay close to mobs when leveling up either.
It took me 5 hours and I wasn't even lvl 70. The next morning, a friend who played all night just PL me the last level to get to lvl 70.
You can chain kills by not letting too much time in between kills. It starts counting from 15 or so. But this only happens individually. It is not based on the groups. More kills in one chain means a higher xp bonus. But it is not always easy to do indeed.
When you level up, you do damage, believe it or not. So when you are close to leveling up, make sure you stand close to a bunch of enemies and they will blow up.
Anyways for me personally, I usually get bored of the new season after a month or so. That's why I wont rush too much in the beginning
