What's a monkey run?

Saw people in trade looking for groups for it, but nobody answered when I asked what it was.

A monkey run is when a group of players go to Stormstout Brewery and kill lots of the monkeys before Ook-Ook for experience, then they leave and reset the instance to kill more monkeys for experience. It's supposed to give 6-10m exp/hour, apparently.

Seriously?
This isn't exploitive or anything bannable is it?

Of course not, they're just AoE farming in a dungeon with a lot of enemies.

Nope as you can't loot them. However you may be able to get kills for the monthly darkmoon quest or anything else that bothers about killing blows like love is in the air.

I'm surprised they havent nerfed the XP from the monkeys, but its no different than farming raid trash for rep/drops/etc.

you realize grinding can be faster than MoP questing if you have rested XP, right?

What about the instance reset limit? Seems like it'd gimp it pretty bad. Seeing as its what, 40 monkeys before Ook? Unless they gather as much as completely possible....

It was back when it was absolutely impossible to quest in Jade Forest. Now...

You can go past the limit if you just keep queuing. Don't run INTO a dungeon, just queue.
And, yes, you clean out all the monkeys. Not just 40. It's fun getting 600k DPS at level 85.
