We're in the process of updating the hotfixes blog
with the recent changes to Pet Battle XP, but wanted to provide a bit more insight into why the changes were made and how XP is calculated.
- All buffs to player XP (heirlooms, enlightenment, guild bonus etc.) were bugged, these where hotfixed to work as expected.
- General player XP from pet battles was tuned too high, these numbers have been balanced accordingly.
- Player experience is granted based on a number of factors. These are player level, number of pet opponents, maximum pet opponent level and the level disparity between opponents pets and your pets.
- Our philosophy is that player XP from pet battles should be, in general, somewhat slower than normal questing.
