((TL:DR version, You get paragon exp killing WD dogs in PvP))

I was talking to Ecocd about this earlier today. It's interesting but sounds super boring to me, I would much rather play normally and get items too.

I could see value in exploiting this in hardcore but I agree with Anuiran - that just sounds mind numbing and pointless.

Turns out its a pretty big deal. AFK to paragon 100 in 4 days. Will probably earn a ban for it though.

I have never played PVP.
Do you earn any XP in normal pvp, WD dogs bug excluded?

No regular player vs player awards nothing.

@yoyo and I tried doing this last night, didnt work. The post does say you must "create the game in a certain way". With no info on what they mean, we gave up. Sure its paragon doing nothing but still, boring. =/

I set it up last night. Pretty easy, wound up using a barb with Fury Regen (full IK set) constantly casting rend, and a WD casting Zombie Dogs.

Didn't realize how expensive those pieces for 0 dogs is, holy crap! 500m for a decent homunculus.

It works though, 12k xp per dog. Slow going if you don't have the full 0 dog build.

Whats the method to set it up? (If you dont mind spilling the beans.)

It is done exactly as he said in the video.

WD sits there, Barb sits there, find something to hold down your mouse button or keyboard button to cast your damage attack and Zombie Dogs. (Ended up using the health globe rune.)

Need two computers doing this if you're not multiboxing, if you're using ISBoxer just assign them to the same key and hold it down.

I had to use the Stand Still key as well, since Rend only attacks with a target otherwise. Zombie Dogs will rush the barb if you position everyone correctly. Pick an attack with a good radius and a attack area 360 degrees around you to make sure you kill all of them. You'll probably know the best for your class, Rend seemed to be an easy option for me.

Do you have any other questions? I feel like I'm not explaining what you want me to.

Were you testing Live or PTR? I know you really like the PTR.

I'm almost positive that a few people have cornered the market on the reduced Zombie Dogs gear and are keeping the prices inflated. It's an extremely rare drop and there's some demand for it which is the perfect situation for cornering a market.

Only the character killing the zombie dogs gets XP, and if you're a higher level Paragon, the bar doesn't really move much. If you hover over your bar you can see how much you gain each kill.

It really isn't powerleveling, and you get much faster XP doing MP10 runs if you can handle it. For being AFK, I would say it's easily the most XP/HR you can get.

I believe the powerleveling is 3 WD and 1 Barb. The Barb gets the bulk of the experience, but the WD get a little XP if their dogs kill a different WD's dogs.

Then clearly you're just terrible at Diablo.
