So I'm trying to build myself a leveling strategy (3rd+ life) that my characters can follow. I can't really use any of the ones I've seen on the forums since most of them assume xp pots, elite streaks, multiple players, guild buffs, etc. However, I will be using Greater Tomes of Learning.
The basic rules my leveling strategy needs to follow:
1. Hard Streak. I don't always have the skill, buffs, players, gear, etc to maintain an elite streak.
2. Solo Friendly. I need to avoid as many quests as possible that are either very difficult to solo, very annoying to solo, or simply can't be solo'd.
3. Fewer Repeats. My goal is to avoid excessive repeating of quests. I'll repeat short quests, simple quests, or the major xp farms.
4. Resource Friendly. I want quests that won't drain my resources. No xp pots. No sp pots. No ddoor scrolls. No gold seal hirelings. And assume no guild buffs.
5. Fewer Quests. I want the overall number of quests I need to run per level to be as low as I can manage without breaking #1-4.
I'm open to suggestions on what I've come up with so far. All of the quests I have listed assume minimal optionals and bonuses. Right now I have many "bad levels" I would like to find a way to improve. Levels 5-7. Level 12. Levels 14-16. Levels 18-19.
