Our GH is still inacessible, therefore I can do little about advancement. And I can't use my trophies too.
Went to have some fun in New Brommel deadlands. Fought lvl.99 monsters there, was quickly surrounded, but still was victorious. Experience was not so hight (some 11.000 per kill). Later went to continue owning Sand Scarabs.
They offered xp and some trophies, as they always do. Big beetle - some 9000 xp, small - some 3000 plus they spawn fast. The only bad situation was when I was surrounded by 2 big and 1 little beetles - had to retreat from the fight. However, I managed to be victorious when fighting 2 big beetles. Result: level 60 in Shaman school reached and some 50-60 silver coins earned.
In the chat we talked about power-levelling (I was power-levelled...) and that it is not too fun. However, growing on trophies is not considered to be power-levelling. In fact, it is the best way to advance, especially on higher levels. I remember Player S. and how I helped her to kill enemies. It was power-levelling, but she quickly learned how to fight and asks for my help on a rare occasions.
Player's D. alt asked for some advice which I was glad to offer.
One player asked what I would do when I finish every school avalaible. The answer is natural: then I would be "Mister-Know-It-All" and I would just help newbies with anything, be it bronze armor or tier 5 healing spell. Now I can help new players with armor or tools only.
Then I understood there was nothing more I wanted to do. Maybe it is a sign I should return to crafting and quickly advance my Gatherer (lvl.95) or Blacksmith (lvl.91).
