    Default No Packs - 4k TP

    My VIP will end soon, and i'm looking for suggestions on what quests to buy at minimum cost..
    I got 4k TPs and I need to buy quests that will take me up to lvl 20 as a 3-times TR, i'm not sure there's such thing but maybe there is and you could help me

    Thanks,

    If gaining XP for multi TR lives is your target then get:

    For first lives:

    1. The Vale of Twilight
    2. Demon Sands

    For second and third lives:

    3. Ruins of Gianthold
    4. The Devils of Shavarath
    5. The Reaver's Reach
    6. The Necropolis Part 4

    Personally I only buy adventure packs when they are on sale, that way I will be able to save a lot of TPs. Before your VIP ends please make sure to get Voice of the Master for all your toons. Getting few upgraded Ioun stones of your choice is also recommended. These things help greatly during TR.

    Yeah I know, thanks, but lets say i'm third life, do you think i'll be able to get to lvl 20 with just 6 packs?

    Yes you can, just maintain the elite bravery bonus, and after elite runs re-run in hard and normal. I'm sure you will get there quite easily.

    I think in terms of xp if you're looking for loot, you really just need von, amarth, and vale

    For quick TRs

    Before level 10 most of the p2p stuff will do fine. though if you have TP left, Tangleroot is a solid choice.

    Necro 2: shadow Crypt is great. This is my 12-13 (If you have extra TP Necro: 1 for Bloody crypt)

    Von: Von 3 and von 5 are wonderful xp (5 only with a quick group) Von 3 is like shadow crypt. wonderful xp. This is my 11-12

    GiantHold + Sands. your entire mid-game here. 12-16

    Necro 4: For me, essential. this is level 16-18.

    Vale: for 18-19

    Reaver's 18-20

    If you can wait a few weeks, we're entering prime "All quest packs 50% off" season.
    Particularly around Thanksgiving (US), there is a long track record of a 1-day 50%
    off quest packs sale happening (along with sweet, sweet +1/+2 loot probabilities).

    If that happens, you can get all your tier 1 and tier 2 packs, plus a couple of
    nice-to-haves.

    Here's a few examples:

    50% off high-level adventure packs on Veteran's Day (11/11/2011):
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=285258

    50% off all adventure packs (1/10/2011):
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=295932

    Different item 50% off each day in December 2010 (there were definitely quest packs in there):
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?p=3443323

    Of course, now that I'm looking back through 2012, it looks like they were a lot
    more stingy with the quest pack sales in 2012, although all three tiers of quest
    packs (low, middle, high) were at least 20% off in November and December 2011.

    Anyway, as a Premium-only player, I was always on the lookout for quest pack
    sales, and got the vast majority of mine during the various 50% off sales over
    the years.

    Good hunting!

    Well, they activated +2 loot for this weekend, so cross your fingers on
    the quest pack sale. In particular, watch next Thursday/Friday...

    Isn't Reaver's Reach pack 40% off on sale right now if I am not mistaken?

    But this is a level 17+ chain with 4 wilderness areas and 1 Atlantis type town.

    can't believe no one mentioned the dreaming dark pack yet, it's cheap but will net you some great xp near cap, the first three (team) quests can be run at 1k/min or more.
