Weapon Leveling Locations
The following locations are not listed in any specific order and are all viable options. The general idea for any location while leveling weapons is to choose AOE abilities to burn down groups of enemies. For each location listed, you will want to train a group of enemies into certain areas and then AOE them all down. This method is much faster than killing individual enemies.
Generally, a good weapon leveling area will contain quite a few enemies with a decent spawn rate so you can run an infinite loop grouping enemies together, killing them, and moving on to the next group.
PLEASE NOTE: Focusing on leveling weapons is best performed once you reach the level cap. This is more effective due to the diminishing returns you receive from both player XP and weapon XP when killing mobs that are 10+ levels lower than you. Once you hit level 60 this doesn’t apply and you will receive more weapon XP per kill when killing lower-level enemies. It is recommended that as you level your weapons naturally vs specifically grinding out weapon experience.
