    Default Diaries of a True Reincarnate (Arcane)

    This diary has been completed.

    Disclaimer: This thread was created during the timeframe of Update 2 and Update 3. Usage of any data during your current play time may not be accurate as online games change often. Any data that is added to this thread in future updates will not reflect this diary.


    So as true reincarnation becomes a more commonplace occurrence in DDO there are always growing questions such where as the fastest EXP can be obtained, how long do the various levels tend to take, which levels tend to be the tricky spots, and so forth. To help facilitate answering such questions I logged the information of my journey as an x2 reincarnate Wizard (Past Life: Sorcerer and Past Life: Wizard), like the items of importance I use/obtain, the time it takes to complete quests, the EXP likely garnered from quests, and other notes that seem helpful or worth commenting. I also took quest footage and plopped it on Youtube to both solidify how I arrive the amount of time a quest takes and to give a better visual on how I made my journey.

    Things to keep in mind:
    • Quests were primarily documented as a solo arcane (Warforged, purely wizard). Thus, what I log will reflect that and any derived data may not be applicable to everyone.
    • All footage of quests will be done on Normal difficulty. Most of it will be done one level above the quest (aka, the highest one can be to enter a quest with no penalty). This is generally the difficulty of choice for blazing through quests for experience, thus that is why I chose that difficulty to film.
    • The character being used has a fair amount of accumulated stuff, and thus the way I accomplish things may not be suited for others.
    • I reserve the right to skip or refrain from logging information on particular quests (such as Kobold Assault because it is horrid for EXP or Tower of Despair because many of my reincarnates lack Boots of Anchoring).
    • Times recorded include the time it takes to go from the quest giver to the quest, to complete the quest (including the time it takes to exit a completed quest), to go from the finished quest back to the quest giver, and the time to travel to an adventure area from the quest giver (if applicable). This allows me to separate "overhead" time from "questing" time. EXP per minute calculations only factors in the time it takes to complete and exit a quest.
    • For times as a melee-oriented character, you may get better matching times from the Diaries of a True Reincarnate (Melee).
    • Divines may be more interested in the Diaries of a True Reincarnate (Divine)

    If certain quests' xp gets adjusted downwards in the future, we'll know who to blame.

    Well, most of the hotspots for EXP are already public forum knowledge. I'm just attaching numbers to them.

    On the flip side it will let me expose the really bad EXP quests that can do with some tuning up (such as Kobold Assault, Keeper's Sanctuary, Bastion of Power, Gladewatch Outpost Defense, etc.).

    Hehe it's funny, I'm pretty much doing the same thing on my reincarnated character. Although I got a looser timing and I didn't time the run to the quest giver... Up to L4 quests so far... our numbers are pretty close (though you ran some quests faster than I did, which is not too surprising... I tend to avoid DA )

    I will be interested to see what you get for numbers along the way.

    Because I'm doing each quest with a video recording it makes it rather easy to pinpoint the time it takes me to complete quests (which is important on the lower level quests that take less than 1 minutes to complete, like the 45 second Repossession or 17 second Endgame: The Archbishop's Fate). Also, a fair amount of EXP per minute gets tied up in the overhead of going to or from a quest (such as Ghost of a Chance, a high EXP per minute quest that gets butchered by the long walk to the quest). That is why I'm trying to ensure I get such details.

    As far as Dungeon Alert, there is now sometimes a delicate balance in some quests. In some, it is better to slaughter as you go (Running with the Eladrin). In others, it is better to embrace its existence and do your best to avoid being being crippled (To Find a Witness). Regardless of the situation, regardless of its annoyance, it isn't something to heavily fear (as an arcane). Melee, on the other hand, have to be far more cautious if bosses are required kills (due to the AC increases in dungeon alert statuses) and thus I'm much more wary of dungeon alert on the non-magical types.

    Excerpts from Level 1

    Author's Notes

    It is just level 1. There shouldn't be much I need to say, but it has importance because this has a few activities that take a fair amount of time and make a large impact from every other level to follow.

    • Planning the build


    It is amazing how long this can actually take at times. Also, being a true reincarnate with end goals of quick EXP gain and level 20 being just a point to reincarnate again, enough power at each level to get through, hitting milestones on skills for particular quests, and all sorts of other forethought can consume a lot of time. Even going from a wizard reincarnating to a wizard, I still took about 25 minutes just to go over things.

    The build that this character for this diary will use:

    Warforged Wizard (20)
    Chaotic Neutral
    36 pt, Past Lives: Wizard, Sorcerer

    STR - 14
    DEX - 14
    CON - 16
    INT - 18 (level up points here)
    WIS - 6
    CHA - 8

    Feats:
    1 - Empower Spell, Maximize Spell
    3 - Past Life: Arcane Prodigy
    5 - Extend
    6 - Past Life: Arcane Initiate
    9 - Toughness
    10 - Quicken Spell
    12 - Insightful Reflexes
    15 - Heighten Spell, Spell Focus: Necromancy
    18 - Greater Spell Focus: Necromancy
    20 - Don't care, level 20 doesn't matter to this reincarnate

    Skills of Importance:
    Concentration, Move Silently, Hide, Spot, Tumble, Balance, Use Magic Devices, Diplomacy (reasoning for each may be explained when I arrive at quests that utilize them later)



    • Making the build


    It still takes time to go through the character creator and make the character. More importantly, it takes time to double check that you selected the correct feats, alignment, stat allocation, and so forth. You won't get an opportunity to correct some of these options if you screw up now because you can't just delete and remake the character!



    • Stocking up


    Going to the bank to obtain things, stocking up on consumables like potions, scribing scrolls, and other preparations can easily take an hour between the running around and sifting through things.



    • Rearranging UI components


    Yes, even this gets an honorable mention. Because your hotbars and other user interface things don't stick between reincarnations it takes a few minutes to get these in order so that you can effectively and comfortably play.



    So, with those tasks completed (which often take longer than getting the EXP to be level 2) done I went on my way. It isn't a dreadfully exciting level, being I only had a few spells at my disposal (but it is kinda fun to dump all your SP in 3 casts of maximized/empowered acid spray). I namely did a bulk of level 1 just running through The Storehouse's Secret on elite.

    Excerpts from Level 2

    Author's Notes

    Going though this level reminds me how much arcanes lack in terms of good area of effect nuking (until 3rd level arcane spells). I still don't like using Burning Hands/Acid Spray much...

    A lot of the remaining quests for level 1 (and the 3 I did that are level 2 quests) are still quite simple and lend themselves to running by and using my 21 AC, killing only when needed. Because I have a Superior Inferno IV clickable weapon and didn't feel like bothering to dig through for a Superior Efficacy/Erosion item I swapped Acid Spray out for Burning Hands (which is also handy for the few ice critters in Korthos). On further reflection, I also realize I constantly forgot to equip my Power IV item so I had lower SP, woops.

    If there was one thing I remembered to do that I am most thankful for, it was to bring invisibility scrolls. It made Misery's Peak (a quest that is often tedious) a lot more palatable to avoid most of the critters inside.

    I also had my first death attempting The Sunken Sewer (Elite) because I completely underestimated the end troglodyte as a lone arcane. The compounded issues of forgetting to bring Niac's Cold Ray (for some decent damage) and being critically hit for 41 damage basically did me in. Oh well, I will soon have my revenge.

    Any other things for this excerpt will probably be reflected within the uploaded videos for specific quests (which I won't get to doing for a while).

    It is pretty humorous that someone is recording XP/minute efficiency to such accuracy that travel times are included... while at the same time updating a diary with such detail that it must unavoidably be taking a great many minutes away from XP acquisition.

    It is also, for me, going to be interesting as well. I've never attempted to hoard this much detail through a character's journey in DDO before. It will also be pretty consuming between all the recording (written and video) and disseminating (posts and video uploads).

    I'm currently committed to revealing the information and thus will continue to do so (and if I don't, it could be derived anyways by my video uploads for this and a bit of math anyhow). Regardless, thank you for your concern.

    This is exactly the kind of thing I've been wishing for on my twice TR'd Star, though have been too lazy to even attempt it

    The biggest surprise to me is that catacombs might be worth running for exp, at least a time or two on elite at lvl 8 when I can bring a dual boxed firewall sorc.

    Excerpts from Level 3

    Author's Notes

    "Your Rugged Belt has broken"
    ... I forgot all about needing to repair until this happened. I think this is the first time in a long time I had a low level item break that wasn't a weapon. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have interacted with a single NPC during this level that wasn't related to quests or transport.

    I absolutely love having Arcane Prodigy, Maximize, and Empower at level 3, as it provides a tremendous gain in ranged spell power (as well as having Scorching Ray). If it allowed INT to count towards the DC it'd be even better for me, but alas, it uses CHA for the purpose of it's DC (one of the reasons I put my last 2 build points into CHA over WIS). Invisibility as a non-scroll is also a welcomed thing.

    Among some of the blunders I made going through, if you are going into a quest with oozes that will follow (aka, Durk's Got a Secret), then remember either Acid Spray or Electric Loop. The gray oozes are immune to temperature effects (fire/cold).

    I also got my revenge in The Sunken Sewer (Elite) this level.




    Leveling Information

    Excerpts from Level 4

    Author's Notes

    Ah yes, I get to do Catacombs at this level and curse at the stairs. No wonder all those silver flame clerics never get fat.

    Most of what I did for level 3 was basically the same in level 4. Lots of invisibly running around, using Ray of Elements or Scorching Ray to take out single targets and Burning Hands (I still haven't bothered to reobtain Acid Spray until late in the level) when near several targets. I also did more melee this level compared to previous levels due to the high monster density of some quests (like Cavern's of Shaagh, Endgame: Marguerite, and The Crypt of Gerard Dryden). I also noticed that my average damage with Ray of Elements went from ~80 to ~120 (when not saved against, which isn't hard being it is DC 11).

    I also revisited Korthos and completed it on Elite. Korthos is so much easier seeming when your Burning Hands does 4d4 base damage instead of 2d4 base damage, and when packing Ray of Elements.

    You may notice below I bought a level 4 fighter hireling. It was basically to try and speed up Kobold Assault (it managed to kill about 30% of the kobolds), but it still took over 14 minutes. Kobold Assault, which I'm hoping to eventually prove, is the worst quest in DDO for EXP.

    The other major highlight was I got inventory bag #4 via Coin Lords Favor.

    suprised you didn't take the wiz past life feat first. I like the MM working on every single thing with no save (and no miss). Plus the extra plus 1 to DC at that level would be nice.

    I guess it won't hurt since you'll display yours anyways... (I didn't originally plan to post them due to similar concerns as expressed in this thread: if devs decide to revise XP all over the place then the whole work has to be redone...)

    I'll keep this post updated every now and then. I'm too lazy to explain the format, I'm sure you can pretty much figure it out. I'll just point out I'm tracking XP on my first run on normal, and I've been wearing the voice of the master since L4 quests (except when I forgot to swap it back). There are definitely some mistakes in this data (and these are not meant to be speed records, no need to tell me how slow I am sometimes ).
    I got a python script to output the XP/min of each quest. Let me know if you want it.

    EDIT: Removed to avoid messing with the search feature on the page. PM me if you want the data.

    In the earlier levels there is only one critter that pesters me with immunity vs. elemental magics, the grey ooze, which is only against fire/cold. Also, around this level range (3-5) the Past Life: Arcane Initiate would be doing about 38/57 damage a shot (if I took Force Manipulation II) while Ray of Elements does about 82/125 damage (half on a save). With the wizard's lower SP pool at the moment I also prefer the extra +20-30 SP from Arcane Initiate over the +1 DC (and at DC 17 on the Hands/Spray, that is currently enough considering things have reflex saves in the -2 to +3 range).

    In the end, it is a wash anyhow.
