    I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on leveling up my repair skill in a quick and efficient way?

    Apparently you can't use the cactus method anymore.

    I asked my faction members to bring me their damaged equipment then repaired it for free, this has been working for me however it might not be the most efficient.

    I level up my mining, damaging my pick using the mcmmo ability, then repairing it. This way I also lvl smithing.

    Darkroom with a looting III sword in normal diamond armour.. Trash the useless stuff, keep the armour till your inv is full. Repair and salvage.

    Why looting III?
    And another tip, use your projectile protection armour. So you can get rid of that,

    lootingIII gives better loot (or was it that better loot drops more frequently?)

    You don't get a higher rate of armor drops with Looting 3 it increases the amount of drops you get for instance instead of 1 ender pearl you might get 4 pearls.

    Looting increases the amount of common drops that you van obtain by 1 for each level of looting.
    Looting doesn't increase the amount of rare drops you get however it does increase the likely of rare drops. Rare drops occur normally 2.5% of the time, each level of looting increases this by .5% for a maximum chance of 4% at Looting III. However, in Minecraft 1.8 the enchantment will increase the chance of rare drops by 1% for each level, making the maximum chance of rare drops 5.5%.

    Also, adressing the main topic, diamond items are best to repair and give the most exp, I've found that using tree feller on jungle trees can be quite effective at wearing down an axe.

    Ah I see. I've never really noticed a difference with armor drops (I spend a lot of time in a darkroom) but that is a pretty small difference in rate of drop so makes sense why I didn't notice.

    *edit*

    And yes diamond armor is your best bet you'll get three levels with just one diamond in the earlier levels and I'm at over 220 and I still get at least a level with each diamond I use.

    I'm a bit above 650ish, and still get a full level about 2/3 of the time, so diamond is the way to go, at least once you get past level 50. (You can't repair diamond before level 50.)

    In all honesty, other than fishing, I would say aqua was my number 2 way of grinding repair. I would go with the old Magnanimus members (MacDaddy, McMuffin, spec, boomed etc.) who all had pretty high axes and just fight them for around an hour. That would send my repair skill flying since at the time normal god armour was rare so we all used normal diamond.
