Getting two elites to level 8 took a ridiculous amount of time just doing comp-stomps. Is there any easier way?
Well, personally, I'm using a workshop map made for grinding Elite XP. Playing alone vs 3 casual AI opponents that are spawning only tier 1 units, and random Elites. Got all of Space Marine Elites to 10 by now, and some from other factions. Bough most of the doctrines too. Its tedious, but eh. In between playing custom lobby matches, can't wait to wrap up the grind and throw into the MP completelly.
play pvp ?? go to browse don't just do grinds but play the game??? Campaign really good for tht as well can pick certain missions to use certain elites, I've leveled most by having fun in this game no need for power leveling at all
kill more units u get more XP to level up.. nuker elites level up very fast.. mele tank elites take a lot ot time like the Meganobz it took me a week.. but i elited wazzmakka and weirdboy in hours :P... just set your opp to orcs Hard early offenseive.. and comp stom.. orks give more XP..
well playing 3v3 is probably the best way ... you can try some elite grind maps on workshop or certain missions allow you to obtain absurd amount of xp for elites (that mission where you get solaria first time can give you 8 levels for her)
Campaign seems to be the best in terms of hours spent vs. Elite XP earned, in my experience.
Custom MP game with a friend, high ressources, get the elites and keep attacking the home base of your friend while its being repaired - do that for like 40 mins and you should get an elite from level 1 -> 10 in one go. Destroy the tower and the shield gens asap to get some extra elite points early on.
Elite Grinding maps are the best. Depending on type of Elite you can earn from 2-3 to 10 levels instantly in like 40 mins or so.
