    Is it still possible to power-level from 85 to 90 using Replenishing the Pantry?

    http://www.wowhead.com/quest=31535

    I don't know how to link the comment, but there is a guy saying that you can power-level from 85 to 90 using Replenishing the Pantry, is this still possible?

    Seems legit, in my realm you have better chances of catch a warglaive killing hogger rather than an 20g stack of nothing so i think in my case the 4 hour leveling would not be posiible (and not for 10k gold).

    Anyway, if you can buy a stack of the quest items for less than you can sell the pepper or soy is worth it, even if you dont hit 90 in 4 hours.

    I hate questing so i thinki am going to try this method in a couple of my alts (leveling + profit = wins) i will share the results in this post

    You take 3 hours and a half per level I think.
    Probably less, I did 37 turn-in's in less than 30 seconds, but I was leveling my cooking now at 90, will try with a 85.
    So 40 turn-in's per 30 seconds, that's 80 turn-in's each minute.
    80 * 23600, it's 1880000 experience per minute, so in 20 minutes you level from 85 to 86 and in 30 minutes from 89 to 90.
    So, if it's 80 turn-in's per minute, I need 80 * 1 stack of Golden Carp @ ~70g, which gives me 5600 gold spent from 85 to 90, repeat, and it's probably 5000 to 50000 gold spent to reach 85 to 90, in 2 hours.
    Doing an average of 100 stacks per level, it gives me 500 tokens to spend. If I buy 100 Year Soy Sauce, and sell for 90g each, it will give me back 45000 gold back.
    If I only waste 6000 gold per level with only Golden Carp, that's 30000 gold spent, so 15000 gold profit.

    I just want to know if this is not an exploit and I won't be banned by using it.

    I do not think this is an exploit in any way...because I am on a small server...if every one on the whole server fished for 24 hours , I would never get 80 stacks x 60 golden carps/stack on the auction house ever...
    There just isn't that many food mats on my server to exploit this.

    I would love to spend wow gold to level 90...I would do it all day all night.

    I don't think this qualifies as an exploit, but doing it on such a large scale - who knows. You could always ticket a GM asking if it's ok to use repeatable quests to level. That way you had something to fall back on if somebody else reported you for exploiting.

    Anyway the calculation is way off.

    1. you need 3 stacks of golden carp per bundle
    2. you need to include the time to retrieve materials from the mail and the time you travel from mailbox <--> market
    3. you need to include the time to actually bundle the groceries before turning them in

    I don't think you can realistically achieve more than 1 turn in per 4 seconds.

    I've been doing this on an alt who I've been casually leveling. Both for the XP and to check out the market itself, and I can see that while possible, it certainly isn't "power-leveling". Unlike some of the other quests (ie. JC daily, which has boosted another alt of mine from 78-81 over the past year or so), the XP gains do NOT scale as you level, so it's simply a flat ~25k XP for each turn in. As such, you'd need to go through quite a hefty stack of token in order to go all the way to 90.

    I'd roughly estimate it took me about 400-500 tokens to do 85-65 (not exact, as I did some of the starter MoP quests and some of the tillers ones once I got to halfhill). I could easily see this either taking someone weeks, or costing them quite a large chunk of gold. Is it perhaps immensely efficient? Sure, but powerleveling? I don't think so.

    3 stacks = ~70g as I have said.
    And I can turn in more than 1 per 4 seconds.
    3 stacks of Golden Carp = ~70g = 1 stack to turn in, so I will need 80 stacks of groceries / 240 stacks of Golden Carp.

    I counted as 23600 exp, and if the stacks are cheap, I think it's cool.

    It's a little bit more involved than that. First, you'd need to purchase all the bags of groceries, then bundle them. Then run back to the other NPC to turn in the quest. There's also the fact that with limited bag space, you'll only be able to do this for so many tokens at any given time. You'd also be better off trying to find cheap veggies or meat for dong this, since they are a more efficient ratio of tokens/bag space.

    Sure it can be done, but it's certainly not a "powerleveling" technique. Finding cheap stacks is one thing, finding several thousand stacks is a whole other story...

    On my server, this would be near impossible. A few people closely guard the prices of any fish, meats, or veggies that list up in the AH to keep prices high. Enough for a single turn-in would cost somewhere around 300g per turn-in, and there's only so much Pepper, Soy, and Flour you can list in the AH to reduce costs.


    Personally, I find that the painful amount of time spent bagging and turning in all those groceries would not come close to being worthwhile, but I could see it being a possible way to level if you absolutely did not want to quest or grind.
