    Default DJ's Bravery Streak to 20 at 4,378,500 xp

    Updated Guide using a Greater Tome of Learning found Here.


    I tr'ed with a friend on Oct 18 and got to cap on Nov 3rd on my 10th life, at 4.378million xp. During this time We duo'ed 80% of things, solo'd 10% of the time and then occasionally we'd have guildies/friends drop in or I'd toss up an lfm cause I was bored. During this time I only ran 2 10% xp pots; both are noted.

    I ran an Artie and he ran a Sorc- he actually capped 1-2days earlier than me because I had to deal with RL issues. So the last 300k I mostly solo'd.

    2 months ago when the bravery bonus came out I put together an estimated guide for what to run during a TR- found Here.

    During this last TR; I kept track of what quests we did, how many times and when we took levels and added ina few notes. This is that list; this is exactly how many quests you need to run to cap a 3rd life+ toon. This is NOT the only way to cap- you can run different quests and different amounts etc- but this should give you an idea of what it takes now, and hopefully ideas on making it easier.

    *Leveling to 18 at rank 87

    ***Note: There aren't many lvl 15 quests other than Litany and the "Missing" chain. I don't think the missing chain is really worth farming so we elected to level to 18 and plan on farming vale on hard. We will only lose 10% on the one normal zerg run we do and in exchange get more power, as well as tod/raid gear. Less Experienced Players will probably not want to take lvl 18 until after they finish farming vale on normal.

    Let Sleeping Dust Lie EHN
    Running With the Devils EHx9N
    The Coalescence Chamber EH
    Ritual Sacrifice EHN
    Rainbow in the Dark EHN

    ***Note: I did run a 10% pot for the end of Coal Chamber Elite and it ran during the farming of Devil's.


    The Shroud N
    ***Note: Does not break elite streak if you run it with 20's

    ***Note: I ran all IQ & DD elites; then went ahead with a hound & vod guild run since I no longer needed to preserve elite streak. After I went back and ran N/H IQ, DD, Vale as needed and depending on if I was soloing or with friends.

    Stayed level 18 until capped.



    Finding the Path EHN
    Dream Conspiracy EHN
    I Dream of Jeets EHN
    The Shipwrecked Spy EHN
    MindsunderEx5,H,N (Farmed mostly for loot)

    Eye of the Titan ENNH
    Mining for Ancient Secrets ENx3H
    Reclaiming Memories ENx8H

    Hound H
    VOD E
    ***Note these WILL reset your elite streak; only run them once you have run IQ & DD on elite and are ready to break it.


    Slayers:
    GH: 200 each; All Explorer's & Rares
    Necro4: 1500; All Explorer's and 1/2 of rares.
    Vale: 400 each; All Explorer's & Rares

    Notes:

    Elite Tangleroot - add farming to parts 4 & 6. Skip hard run.

    After finishing all elites at level 18 go back and do Monastery on Elite if you can managed it - Hard if not. Farm a few normal runs.

    In GH: Due to a new trick learned have been farming Maze of Madness more, also Cry for help : About E,Hx3,N
    Assault on Summerfield Chain has been shortened to 1 full run through on Elite; then only repeating Blockade Buster H,N - Seigebreaker H,N.

    Very pleased with the response; my time spent tracking all this between levels last life looks like it will help others.

    Time-wise was it faster than without bravery? How much quest time you think?

    Question - under your level 7 you mention that you couldn't find an opener for hard. I'm confused by this comment since you had already run it on elite...

    They needed someone that was actually on the quest so that they did not have to run the 4 flagging quests for Bloody Crypt again.

    Nice work, thanks.

    Few comments from my perspective... I mainly duo with the wife, or occasionally with a few guildies who happen to need xp in our range.

    Our last life, the wife and I kept up the elite streak all the way up for testing purposes. (We skipped Amrath) We were already level 6 or so when the update hit, so we bypassed a lot of the lower level stuff.

    It ended up being pretty painful for us to duo some of the Reavers refuge quests on elite, but I wouldn't want to pass up on the xp from monastary or kobold altogether.

    For this life, I'm planning on farming vale until we feel like taking level 18, then doing IQ/Island on elite, and then downshifting to hard bonus streak for Reavers Refuge.

    About the same or a tiny bit faster; though much improved because there was farless mindless grinding on normal PLUS alot more favor. I usually get about 1300 favor on average- this life I passed 2000 favor.

    Yes there was only 2 of us; so one of us opened elite for the bonus and the other opened normal for farming(and we grabbed the window to farm) In order to do hard we would have had to rerun the flagging quests

    After finishing everything in IQ & DD on elite; going back and doing some Hard/Normal Monastery & Kolbold is definitely viable and a good sorce of xp.

    In my case I didnt feel like pugging it out and my TR Partner had capped so I just skipped it this life. The fact that I was able to skip both RF & Amarath without too much extra mindless farming definitely shows the elite streak bonus really does help.

    And thanks; I'll checkout my link now and fix it.

    I am using this guide atm. But there is still something I would like to know. Whenever you state *leveling to x at rank y*, does that mean you are banking this last rank as well or leveling up immediately?

    I ended up with losing about 10k exp due to reaching exp cap and thus wasted maybe 2 x 50% xp because it wasn't added any more.

    I also wanted to add that ruing 3bc Fire Caves and explorers is worth it. The levels 6-9 hold much high xp content so if you want to have a change you can easily replace some quests.

    Depends if you are running with xp potions or not. I'm generally running with 20% pots standard, so large chunks of this I just skip. If you are going to be xp capped, just skip that run and move on.

    For 3bc, it would be worth it, if it was at some other level range. There is so much xp available at that range, it's just not worth the time to run around 3bc. I kinda agree with a post I ran across a few days ago, that asked for 3bc to be retooled for level 15-16 content.

    I'm leveling up immediately. Watch your ranks; you gain a level at every rank that ends in 1 & 6.

    Thank you. Was unsure so I banked a bit which left me with more content to swallow now.

    Depends if you are running with xp potions or not. I'm generally running with 20% pots standard, so large chunks of this I just skip. If you are going to be xp capped, just skip that run and move on.

    For 3bc, it would be worth it, if it was at some other level range. There is so much xp available at that range, it's just not worth the time to run around 3bc. I kinda agree with a post I ran across a few days ago, that asked for 3bc to be retooled for level 15-16 content.
    I am using a pot but only +10% medium one. Together with voice + ship + streak I get more than enough. I usually follow easy-to-get xp. and realized, 3bc has a big map with many explorers and this particular short quest so you can go there as well.

    Looking forward to trying this on my next TR +1 to you!
    UDR Loot Rules:
    1) No griefing people for pulling loot that dropped in their name
    2) When rolling, classes for which the item is "useful" get +10 to the roll
    example: Wiz and Barb both roll on a Torc, the barb saying "I'm TRing into an arcane next week"
    Wiz gets +10 on his roll
