<p>Can someone please explain or post a link with the information on how mentoring affects your aa's? Meaning if I am 50 and mentor someone that is 15 do I get x amount of aa exp for every quest that lvl 15 does or is it based off something else?</p>

<p>The AA xp you will gain (by named, quest, exploration, etc ...) while mentoring someone will be raised. The greater the difference of lvl, the greater the raise (up to 300% if I remember right).</p>

<p> Mentoring has no effect on quests. AA quest exp is based off how many AAs you currently have. This means you can do grey quests without having to mentor.</p>

<p>What about collection quests?  If I'm level 80 and I finish a level 15 collection quest, would I be better off mentoring to level 15ish to turn in the collection?</p>

So are you saying that if you are doing a level 40 quest as a level 80 with 20 AAs, you will get more xp than a level 80 with 140 AAs?</p>

<p>To beat it into the ground even more (for example only (no idea what real values are):</p><p>If you have 20 AAs and you need 1000 points (i.e. 1000 points from 20.0 AA to 21.0 AA) to reach  21 AAs and you complete a quest or turn in a collection and recieve 100 AA points, you have just gotten 10% closer to 21 AAs.  (100/1000*100%=10%)</p><p>If you have 120 AAs and you need 1000000 points (i.e. 1000000 points from 120.0 AA to 121.0 AA) to reach 121 AAs and complete the same quest or collection and recieve 100 AA points, you have just (only) gotten 0.01 % closer to 121 AAs.  (100/1000000*100%=0.01%)</p><p>Get it?</p><p>Peace!</p>

<p>This would all be so much simpler if they just exposed the xp numbers and the totals needed for a level rather than masking behind this % system.  It only confuzzles people.</p>

<p>Hmm I guess I might be wrong but didnt an update here recently say that mentoring will grant you 3x the aa xp than not mentoring? Would that be based on named killing or quests for me? Meaning it doesnt matter if the person I am mentoring completes quests or not? So I would need to mentor someone in a zone I havent done any quest like say Zek to get the 3x aa exp for doing quests?</p>
