    Default Disciples of Shadow - Another way to get there?

    Currently you have to enter Eveningstar to get to the new content. To get to Eveningstar it's level 16 quests. The new content is level 15 quests.

    Will there be a new path to the new content upon release? Seems a waste of XP to go down in level.

    1. TR's can use a key.
    2. Streak junkies can do the Web of Chaos at level 17.
    3. 1st lifers don't need streak to get to 20 in any way, shape, or form.


    That said, Harbor -> Prison -> Cavern -> Estar -> Wheloon is getting to be a whole lot of zoning. I'd appreciate another way there just for convenience sake.

    Don't forget also that Spinner of Shadows is bugged.

    I find the whole logic a little ill thought out too. Why, for example, add a portal 5 feet away from the other portal to get to the same Spinner's Prison? Seems to be a waste of time and manpower on some developers part to me. And it does not solve the problem the original poster posted about, in that you have to do a level 16 flagging quest ("Reclaiming the Rift") to get into Eveningstar to do a level 15 quest.

    this was brought up numerous times in Lammania and in the lamdaland forums.

    as far as TR's using key - some (like myself) never bothered to get a key because just went to 20 and immediately TR'd. Now with additional content will have to take the extra time and get the barney favor for it.

    There is no rule that requires you to take the quests in order. Just do the flagging quests at 17 and still be eligible for streak.

    Or get a key. Can't blame turbine for not bothering to get the key, it's only 75 favor.

    It also doesn't make any sense in the continuity they introduced with the Chronoscope where events happen chronologically by quest level.

    This means that "Disciples of Shadow" happens before the events in "Web of Chaos" connects the two worlds. Yet we can't (normally) do "Disciples of Shadow" until after we've done the "Web of Chaos".

    Before update 18, the need to do "Web of Chaos" before entering the Forgotten Realms have made perfect sense with the continuity in mind. Compared to the time-paradox just introduced in update 18, earlier access to Forgotten Realms wouldn't make any less sense.
