To echo what others have said doing some of the 5 star challenge the first time are freakish xp. I do not like doing the challenges myself, but I join my guildies when it comes up and oh man. Reminds me of the old school gianthold back when levelling was totalling different and you ran a level 8 character in crucible for sicko xp, but those were the days. Good guide though overall.

Invaders is 3-4min, but only in a solid group-and skipping the last optional. Solo it is typically a lot slower.
Ghosts usually 3-4min.
The 2min ghosts/1min cabal where done by guildies; I was not even in the group at the time (and they were probably 2:59/1:59ish type runs). So I don't have screenies obviously, but I believe them.
It is probably possible to do vol in 2min, not so much for fleshmakers/inferno.
As for making the OP look foolish...not at all. I'm a huge fan, actually. Was just trying to make some suggestions based on the TR path that my guild generally follows. Knowledge is power, and if a quest has a technique/strategy that allows it to be done faster, I'd want to know as well. For instance, I'll definitely be looking into the challenges now at level 18.
His group also isn't hitting those times every run. Those are his group's absolute best runs, and those runs typically come towards the end of the farm. If you start off with a seven minute Cabal, your group should have that down to four minutes by the time you're on your sixth run, say. If you start off with a four minute Cabal (much more experienced group), you group may hit that 1:59 second run by the time you do your sixth run.
Only works on Hard/Elite as you said though, I suppose its cause Normal has the Blighted-oozes-dont-split bug?
Either way, normal is ofc easy.
The quest is very good for solo caster as well, 3-4 minutes on the time, so prob just under 4-5 actual.
Its much, much faster and less risky as the trash will follow you to shrine and could eventually be fast enough to kill you.
Once you are done farming:
Get out of tangleroot!
You don' t want to run Elite level 6 quest (lvl 8) with a level 3 character. 8)
Now, If you really up for the challenge then:
if you are solo, grab a hireling and it will reset your instances.
if in a group recall to tavern and reform group.

Im sure Mr. Cow has a video on how to do this, its been a staple of TR levelling for a long time.
So...anyone have a good idea for a fast f2p to lvl 8 quest list?
At around 42K XP and still missing 20K to reach level 4.
Missed some repetition somewhere or a quest?
When you complete Recovering the Lost Tome, are you XP capped? You should be before running Information is Key.
