    How do recommend leveling in ESO? Is there an efficient "grind", or should I just be doing all the quests/exploring as much as I can? Any details on what stuff I get XP for in ESO? I'd like to level a little quicker next beta or on release because I have yet to play the PVP and I'm interested in getting a first hand look at it.

    Just tell him that everything will make him level faster. You can try to join some groups who are going into some dungeons and just keep standing in the background you will get the xp if you just stay in range of the group. But to be honest i were only in 2
    groups, the first i played with a streamer on the second time with some strangers who grinded some special items for their classes :/ ~Desu

    you know, it's funny you ask this question. my husband and i spent time exploring and following all the myriad quest lines we found, and every now and then it was like, "oh! i dinged!" grinding mobs ain't gonna cut it ... exploration/quests will do ya lots of good.

    I recommend using a addon to see you XP bar ...that way you can find out what works for you and who knows you may find more ways to bump the bar up . For me without seeing it like when i was new to the beta . It seemed like lvling was so slow not that i would mind because it seems like a lot of MMO's let you lvl to fast for my taste . but anyhow I found the addon for the xp bar and i was like "oh ok" doing this gives me more than that ect ect .

    And dont forget the XP boost you will get from rings of Mara, comes with Imperial edition. Personally this will be my first mmo where I do not chase the level cap since I found so many things to enjoy on the way to cap and I do not want to miss it!

    If you want to level fast do quest they personal are the fast way, or dungeons they are one other way to level up too and you get good gear.

    Quests are definitely the fastest but nothing beats a nice dungeon.

    That's pretty much it. To find a lot of quests, you'll have to explore. And that'll likely involve killing things as you get around. Leveling is not difficult. I find it to be a very good pace, not too slow and not too fast. As long as you're completing quests as you explore, you should be fine.

    I'd also would like to point out that ESO requires the player to go out and explore in order to find the quest unlike other MMO's. There will be no travel here quest and upon arrival pickup 20 quests for the area, you will need to look at your map and travel to undiscovered areas to find new quest givers. I have heard some people in game say their level X and have no more quests to level but it's only because they have yet to explore outside of the main cities.

    Another tip I can offer is if you see a cave or whatever just go in and explore, you'll find quests and usually a skyshard waiting for the curious ones. If you wait for a quest to tell you to go in you'll lose out.

    kind of a side question about levelling:
    In ESO, does crafting give you Level XP, or only XP for the specific crafting skill line?

    Crafting gives you what the Devs call "Inspiration" - so does NOT give you levelling XP > From the Q&A

    Thanks. This is what i thought but was just wondering. like in GW2 (i think it gives way to much but...) you earn level xp as well as crafting xp, and was just wondering how it was in ESO
