ArzyeL Gaming has got you covered with ten awesome places to earn massive XP (experience) and reach level 50 in no time. Plus, these spots are also perfect for gaining Champion Points and leveling up your Companions. Let's dive in and power level like a pro!

 

 

Helpful Gear, Consumables, and Skills for Power Leveling

 

Training Gear

First things first, before you start grinding, make sure to gear up with some Training gear. This will give you a sweet 7%-11% XP bonus per piece, and the Heartland Conqueror set is a solid choice for doubling weapon Traits and granting an extra 11% XP. Don't forget to switch gear every 10-15 levels if you're below level 50. Blue quality will be enough if you're on a budget.

 

Potions and Scrolls

In The Elder Scrolls Online, potions and scrolls are helpful items for getting better XP from your grinding. You can craft those items, buy them from other players, or get them as Daily Rewards.

 

Double XP Events

ESO's double XP events are great opportunities to earn even better XP gains. During the events, you can stack the event XP bonus with XP potions or scrolls.

 

AoE Skills

When it comes to skills, AoE (Area of Effect) skills are the way to go for clearing out groups of enemies quickly and racking up that XP. Each class has its own strong AoE skills, and there are some handy weapon skills to use as well.
