Grizzlehiem is a side world that is not meant to level your wizard in so that you are not too advanced for the regular worlds it parallels. Altho you can abuse this in Wintertusk it is actually a plus to be a higher level to deal with Celestia - not that Wintertusk is a walk in the park but the experience is equal to the fighting needed to be done.

I just relised that When you beat Grizzleheim, and go to Wintertusk... All your XP is repayed. 13000 XP for a quest! JACKPOT

On the same subject - I just hit level 40 (fire) and came back from Mooshu thinking to finish up Grizzelheim. I got to the duel with the Boss Jotunk which is the first step towards Ravenscar and I nearly flipped. How is a wizard withonly 2000 health suppose to beat a boss with 9,000 health? Even with help, it seems impossible at my level.

I just went back to help out a friend with Big Ben and we ended up taking on the milk bottle boss who had 3500 Health and with 3 of us all about my level we were given a run for our money. Any suggestions? I don't know anyone with a higher health etc. than mine so that's out.

I'm still not convinced the amount of exp is worth it. If I didn't love the place (I grew up in the mountains of Montana) I would have grumbled my way through it.

Don't worry. I was probably four levels under you on my Storm gal when I faced him. My friends and I just used the old teleport back in and out strategy. First, you wipe out the minion. If he has brothers, then go for the Life one, then the Death and then finally Jotun himself. That's how we did it, though it took us nearly an hour we completed it. (And yeah, that experience we got for that quest was NOT worth it.

Thanks I appreciate the information. I am wondering though if i understand what you meant by "port in and out" I figure you mean if you got killed you ported back, and you also ported in and out between duels? Or did you port back into the duel if you got knocked out while others held the fort - can you even do that? Thanks in advance for any further response.

The XP in Grizzleheim is awful. I have 2 wizards there now (Storm in Ravenscar, and Life in Savarstaad Pass)~ all they do is grind, non-stop, and the XP isn't even worth it. To be honest, it's insulting.

On that note: If it's a side world, completing it shouldn't be required to get our level 35 and 55 spells. The whole point of a side world is that it's optional, am I right?

Wow, if it was THAT hard for you to do the milk boss with 3 people, then, you sure are weak, I did the big ben duo, myself as a balance level 29, and an ice wizard level 31, we did fine, we even did the milk boss, it was so easy. Yeah, you're just weak...

I solo Big Ben - so far with my Death and Storm but I would never call anyone else in the game or on this board weak. I thought this forum was moderated, why are posts like this let though?

i know right? grizzleheim gives very little xp-even for a level 20! (in my opinion) also its not like its easy. its not! on my balance wizard (who was lvl 37) and i almost died while fighting the last boss of helgrind warren (not sure how to spell) i had really good gear too! luckly balance wizards have a very helpful minion. i would have died! grizzleheim is hard but at least wt gives good xp.

That is exactly what I meant. You bring three people, then if one or two of you get defeated you port back to the other guy. (This guy must be a mutual friend to make it easier on you.) I used that technique and we sailed fairly smoothly.

And make sure you have all your potions filled before the battle starts. It goes a lot faster if you flee, use a potion, and port back (instead of running around looking for wisps, while your friends keep fighting) Also, there are SOME dungeons this wont work with, but most you can.
