Im sure its been done before etc.. but I wanted to see if I could take a new toon without the aid of another and get to 300aa at lv 10 during this week. 

Orcs orcs and more orcs.  I had raf of course and potions.

Instead of star destroyer I should have gotten "Needs a Life." 

I actually did hang up my belt for eq2 a few weeks back but now I will play this conj for awhile.  Never played one before I guess 300aa is a good place to start.  Yeah I know I cannot use them all etc.. I know the arguments but it was just to see if I could and would.  I did something similar back in sf days with a wizard at 14 and 250aa (had a thread here about it.)

Anyway thanks soe for the week of xp.  Will I do this again ? No lol.  Without the double xp week would I have done this? no lol.

I'm guessing thats the RAF character for the bonus XP when grouped.

Less than 14 days, according to his quest list.

There are two islands in the frostfang sea that have orcs clustered into easy groups.  One of the island's mobs are slightly higher lv then the other and they respawn very fast.

I honestly thought the road from 250-300 would be harder then 200-250.  Unless they changed the curve it was just about the same from my calculations.

My level 77 Berserker who has existed for 2+ years still has that quest in her journal. I haven't bothered to delete it because it amuses me at this point.

Not saying that it's an old character in this case, just that going by that quest is a bad gauge. It doesn't always delete itself.

To the OP, congrats. Now go get some levels! SMILEY

I think you're right.  I'm guessing that whatever it takes to fill #250 is the same amount for each AA from 251-300.

I've got mixed feelings over the whole AA system.  On one hand it's a complete pain in the butt to hit 300 AAs via questing.  But it's very doable by grinding on these bonus weekends.  The whole system probably ought to be completely overhauled from scratch.  ...but in it's own odd way, it kinda works (or at least I've gotten used to it). 

About the only change I would dare make is to radically bump up the XP & AA offered by quests in the last 3 expansions.  They are abysmally woeful.  The only reason to even do it is if you're after faction.

I did this too and was amazed at how quickly it went by, I finished up 300 at 18 Hours played mind you I had a RAF SK doing most of the work.

110% Experience Pots were key to it.

The one thing I would like an answer to is why do they call getting 300aa "Star Destroyer?"  Is it something in the lore? or just something the dev's thought would be "totally awesome?"   

During the 300aa grind I do not remember destroying any stars...I probably did see a few

each first kill on a named has a * next to it - hence you destroyed a lot of 8's to get to 300

due to AA/EXP locking, PVP servers can't lock till 30... so 30/300 is the target.. But still had guildmates make 30/300 this weekend on newly started characters..

Doh!  I didnt figure that one out...I feel somewhat foolish.  Your right it has to do with the * on the normally 8 key.

Good one soe.  Star destroyer...extreme and dorky in one...perfection

No afk pet kills..oh no that is too slow...waaay too slow.

Grats.  

I only made 295 AA here.  I wish I'd gotten serious before Wednesday after the raid.

OTOH,  my new necro didn't stop at level 10, but bored right on to 90.  There's more use for a toon at 90 than 10, methinks.

No RAF.   I don't touch the stuff.   I'm told once you try it you never get off it.

Now off to get other basic stuff, like enervated epic,  flying mount,  and a few run's thru Velks to get some gear.

Sorry but I don't get it, its is afterall nearly 5am here in the UK and I've not been to bed.  But..... the OP says he wanted to do this challenge without the aid of another, yet I can see clearly that he has another person with him, so strictly speaking it wasn't without the aid of another.  Even if he was two boxing or whatever that phrase is, in my opinion that still does not count. 

also does not prove that prior to 300 he was in a group which obviously we don't know about.

Sorry but no SOE guiness/carlsberg/budweiser/fosters/rum/vodka record here SMILEY

Yea I enjoyed the bonus I took 4 of my alts to 300 adding those to the 3 I already had at 300 for a total of 7 level 90s at 300 and my other 2 lvl 90s I got to 285 + . I did this all in the first 2 days and then got burned out on grinding and choose to enjoy the lack luster loot bonanza. Would have been wonderful if they had actually done something that also provided a benefit for raiders as most if not all of the welcome back did nothing for them. But that's another story. Bonus I got 5 potions for research time to use next lvl cap increase!

I have just returned to this game after a lengthy departure.  I have a level 22 illusionist with 28 AAs (locked adventure XP).  Can anyone suggest an efficient way to advance his AAs to 300 (as the OP did for his level 10 character by killing orcs)?

Buy the station cards for this weekends 3 times point bonus (ie a $15 card give 4500 points this weekend), 110% Experience potions (claim them from veterans rewards and buy them from the store), 200% Vitality potions (buy from store), use refer a friend to mentor (doubles experience as I recall). Sometimes SOE gives bonus experience weekends sometimes, use those as well (we just had a week end this week).

Put the experience slider to 100% so all experience goes to AA. Buy a ton of collection parts to complete as many as possible. Right before you submit the collections, blow a potion and  make sure your refer-a-friend is with you and you are mentored (so the bonus shows up), then submit the collections. This will get a bunch at once depending on how many you have and their level.

Go hunt, either questing or just killing.

Your cap is 160 AAs to spend until you hit 70, I would aim at somewhere near that but it's entirely up to you.

Thanks for the detailed response!  I will look into the station cards, etc. today.  Is there a good place to grind mobs in the low 20s that would grant AA experience?

Eh well yeah the group thing was just for RAF trailing behind me that toon didnt do anything to "help" kill the mobs.  I already stated this has been done to a quicker and probably harder extent.  I was just tooting my horn that I did it...which means anybody can cause im lazy man LOL.

how is it possible that you've been a forum member since 06 and still think there is a cap on the aa you can have pre 300?
