    Default 27 hour TR

    Flamicia and Hamada (me) of Orien completed a TR in 26 hours 55 minutes, starting Tuesday Dec 20 and ending Monday Dec 26. We had 20% XP potions as well as a 20% XP holiday bonus the entire time. We demolished our previous record of 37 hours. Our quest path was similar to the 37 hour TR, except we've completely eliminated Sorrowdusk and all but one quest from Tangleroot. Some of the one-of quests we typically do during a TR (like elite Fear Factory and elite Crucible) were skipped as well. The contributing factors for speeding up our TR time dramatically: Having a full group of self-sufficient people who knew the quests and could follow directions when we split up.

    Congratulations to Flamicia. This was his 16th (and last) life before Completionist. It's been a blast TRing with him the past 5 lives.

    Many thanks to our TR companions this life: Mitwo (completionist monk), Ixtli (pale master), Ironmaw (fvs melee) and Vrac (pale master). This was the most fun TR we've done yet!

    Here are the XP milestones and time elapsed I recorded at the end of each XP session:

    Rank 48: 6h 58m
    Rank 74: 14h 48m
    End of rank 80 (2.856M XP): 17h 33m
    Mid rank 87 (3.484M XP): 21h 50m
    Max XP (4.378M XP): 26h 55m

    Looks more like 144 hours to me.

    Maybe total gaming time? Assuming there are some family duties on x-mas days? That is 4-5 hours per day on xp/min zergs.

    This would've been more eye popping if it was a non stop 27 hours. Still very fast and gratz on the fast TR. One can def undertand with it being a holiday and whatnot tho. Gratz again!

    It's 27 hours elapsed on XP potions. With a one week cooldown timer on TRs, it's not like the elapsed calendar time matters.

    I'd be the first one in line to congratulate someone who did it non-stop. It's just not very practical though, especially with a full-time job and family.

    144 hour TR is still amazing.

    Not even quite that, it's just total time spent inside of quests/quest areas. Maintenance and travel time isn't included.

    Would love to see a full TR and then farming of tokens for the next one on a single character before the TR timer resets for the next one.

    We farm the quest every TR. It's amazing XP/min when people work together. Elite takes a little longer, since we disarm the traps.

    27 hours of gameplay. 144 total hours elapsed. Who could sit for 27 hours straight and do a tr?

    Congrats guys!

    We completed another TR with the 20% XP holiday buff in 27h 37m (we over farmed a few quests due to some hiccups). Here are the missing screenies from this life:

    2 minute Thrall of the Necromancer:



    2 minute Xorian Cipher:



    All in all we managed to squeeze two entire TRs, and the tail end (level 17-20) of another TR within the 20% XP holiday bonus. Taking a TR break for now, but looking forward to the 25% XP bonus during DDO's anniversary.

    We had to skip the shrine to get the completion time under 4 minutes.

    Impressive.

    My GF takes longer just to level up when she has to pick a feat.

    Ahhh, that would probably do it, yes. I always shrine as I'm usually hurriedly throwing Disints at the BH as I drop. (Loving the free enlarge on ray spells for that quest!)

    3 min is even possible when soloing (Rittz is a pure spellsinger bard regening my sp and some minor healing on BH)
    Also grats on 27 hour completion, it's really fun when speed zerg with friends

    Ooh sorry I missed this first time around; I'd been off the forums for a while. Thanks for posting, nice work and... damn your hide! Now I'll have to try again next TR.
