Jeets said he wouldn't tell Turbine. ;(
Great job! There really isn't a barrier to TRing its the details that evade most people. That being said I bet if you posted that quest info its sure to become a Game Guide...maybe even get you a fancy forum title lol

When TR'ing me and Daz always go with casters and then just LReincarnate to the past life we want. For instance go for L12 Wizard/L1 Rogue/L5 (L7) Fighter (the last two doesn't matter for leveling) and then Lesser Reincarnate +3 away 3 wizard levels into fighter. With +5 Lesser Heart of Wood you could go up to L14. Or if you can wait a week and do another Lesser Reincarnate +3 to have even more wizard levels, but IMO that's not necessary. This isn't that good when you're doing your last life of course, but if you're just going to "kill him/her off" anyway it doesn't matter. The reason is naturally that a caster is *much* better than anything else leveling. One thing to note is that True Reincarnation and Lesser Reincarnation are on different timers, so you can do both right efter another.
The schedule was done by going through all quests and thinking about times, bonuses etc and then deciding which to use (a spreadsheet is a nice tool!). After that - tweaking them each TR. It is of course flexible. If we noticed we still got the xp/minute we use as a "filter" (For instance 1200 xp/minute), we continue with that quest. We also kept an eye on our target xp for quests and tried to keep on target by getting a few extra runs in when the quests were better than expected. An example was Enter the Kobold that we had a 9 minute run in with optionals. Way better than expected. One other thing to think about is "dead time" in between quests and running back and forth. Also preparing ahead of time for leveling saves a load of time as well.
This is the schedule we used this time around. Having another account with openers is useful to have, to avoid doing bad quests in chains without switching characters around. It also, for instance, makes it possible to farm Tangleroot pt 5b and 6b.
The barebone schedule with a few notes (before tweaking at "runtime") this time around:
Using 20% XP pot, 3% ship-shrine (and +5% item from L5). We sacrifice about 10 minutes on (bad xp) coin lords quests. They still give xp, so say around 5 minutes for another inventory-tab. Worth it.
We had 4 deaths IIRC. One wipe in Tangleroot 5a elite at Level 3 when we got orange alert at the key chest. A single death in Tangleroot pt 6b elite in the wheel corridors at the shrine (luckily) at L3. Elite traps got us once in Wiz-King (L15) and once in Monastery (L18).
A couple of small tips (which most probably know): Invisibility is king in many quests. Doing anything that slows you down is not good - always think about if it's worth the time. That is regarding difficulty, breakables, traps etc. Also bonuses might of course be worth it with more people in the group. You might have to take a -10% hit if you're ahead of schedule or at a couple of times anyway.

A familiar looking list, heh. Thanks for sharing. There's a couple I've never really bothered learning inside out in your list that I've also seen in others schedules... so I think I'll get some practice in once the U9 fazzaz has died down. Maraud the Mines and Dreams of Insanity spring to mind.
amazing achievement guys!
i am curious as to how you stocked up your toons before you did the TR...did you buy a ton of haste pots/cure pots/yugo pots etc?
Zanuzi-Ardazell-Ardazphyk-and a load of Jarl's
Was once known on Keeper as Sekata, Dukkebox, Zanusi
And thanks for the list.
This is not only a great achievement. This is science! DDO science! Your names are written in the history books of DDO.
I would absolutely +rep but f2p players cannot...

Utter madness but well done! How did you stay sane from the mindless repeating of the same content over..and over..and over...and over..Don't know how you did it or how any TR's do it. Doing the same quest more then once in a few months is pushing it for me apart from a few fun raids.
Wow, well done guys!
