First off I'd like to say thank you Robi for your Free to Play guide. I deeply appreciate all the hard work you've put in to help newcomers with the game. I am however puzzled by how you get the total favour earned from a few adventure packs, because Johnny D's favour calculations (http://forums.ddo.com/showpost.php?p=2403533&postcount=55) seem to differ from yours.

Adventure Pack: The Catacombs
level: 2-4
Included Quest-Favor
The Friar’s Niece-6
Return to the Sanctuary-9
The Old Archives-9
Crypt of Gerald Dryden-12
Setting the Ward: Lower Cathedral-9
Setting the Ward: The Patriarch’s Crypt-9
End Game: Marguerite-6
End Game: The Archbishop’s Fate-6
Total: Quests-8 Favor-75

6 + 9 + 9 + 12 + 9 + 9 + 6 + 6 = 66, which agrees with Johnny D's post. Where does the extra 9 favour come from?

Adventure Pack: Shan-to-Kor
level: 3-5
Included Quest-Favor
The Cloven Jaw Scourge: Blockage-12
The Cloven Jaw Scourge: Caverns of Shaagh-12
The Scared Helm-12
Halls of Shan-to-Kor-12
Total: Quests-4 Favor- 60

12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = 48, same as Johnny D's calculation.

Adventure Pack: Tangleroot Gorge
level: 3-7
Included Quest-Favor
First Strike-9
The Hobgoblin Captives-9
Yarkuch’s War Plans-9
Whisperdoom’s Spawn-9
The Deadly Package: The Stronghold Key-9
The Deadly Package: Agent of Darguul-9
Doom of the Witchdoctor: The way to Zulkash-12
Doom of the Witchdoctor: Zulkash, Heral-12
The Last Move: The way toYarkuch-9
The Last Move: Yarkuch’s Last Stand-12
Total: Quests-10 Favor-90

9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 12 + 12 + 9 + 12 = 99. Johnny D had "Tangleroot = 102 favor", so I'm not sure how that figure came about.

Adventure Pack: Delera’s Tomb
Level: 5-11
Included quests-Favor
The Mystery of Delera’s Tomb-12
The Missing Party-18
Free Delera-15
Return to Delera’s Tomb-9
The Thrall of the Necromancer-18
Valak’s Mausoleum-12
The Keeper’s Sanctuary-12
And the Dead Shall Rise-18
From Beyond the Grave-15
Total: Quests-9 Favor-117

12 + 18 + 15 + 9 + + 18 + 12 + 12 + 18 + 15 = 129

Only Three Barrels Cove, Necropolis part 1 and Sharn Syndicate have numbers that match the favour stated. Could anyone enlighten me please? Thanks.

I only count 77 quests, The Xorian Cipher doesn't appear to have any favour listed, and the sum I get is 877, not 907. I'm confused.

*bump*

Anyone? I don't get why the numbers don't add up.

the xorian cipher is a 21 favor quest with a tiny pre-quest thats worth 9 favor, thats why the difference in free quests.

Thank you very much, Junts! That explains a lot. :)



I'd still would like someone to verify which favour numbers are correct for the paid adventures, if anyone is able to do so.

It was pointed out to me earlier today that the favor total for the Catacombs was incorrect. I appreciate you picking the guide apart. I want to present the most accurate information possible.

I am not the best with numbers, being dyslexic has that draw back, so there is a chance my numbers are off.

Tomorrow, when I have time I will be double checking the Adventure packs and fixing the free quest list.

Thanks again for your help.

I should have answer for you tomorrow after I triple check over everything.

Hello Just to let you know I have corrected all the errors you found. The missing quest and the 9 favor that went with it was Redfang the Unruled. It is a market quest.

Double checked Tangleroot against 2 different sources The total favor should be 99.

Fixed the Delera's, catacomb and STK errors as well.

Thanks again for point those mistakes out,

You guys rock! Thank you very much. :)

I noticed that The Necropolis part 4 isn't listed in "Know Your Premium Content (High Levels)", fyi. All the other favour values look alright to me.
