I play only one character, now on fourth life. Plan is to go for Completionist, not because I want to accumulate past lives so much as it seems like a cool way to try all the classes. Of course, the benefits are nice too, though apparently not nearly as valuable now that the epic content is out.
When MotU came out, I originally ignored the new epic stuff and kept just doing the heroic quests and TRing. But from what I've learned, I will need a lot of XP to unlock epic destinies. I hate hate hate grinding, and I don't want to be stuck grinding epic quests for weeks to get destiny points once I am done Completionist. So I decided I would start doing some epic stuff on each life, mixing the heroic and epic quests each time.
Now the screwup. My last life, I was a sorceror. I hit 20 just after the epic content came out, and I didn't really understand much about it, but wanted to try it out a bit. So I selected an epic destiny, Draconic Incarnation -- and then barely did anything with it before TRing. Yes, stupid, I know that now. I usually am a "RTFM" type of person and I don't know why I did that.
So now I'm a paladin with a sorceror's destiny, almost no XP in it so it will take me quite a while to unlock anything else, and there's nothing that seems to appropriate for a paladin anywhere near it on the "destiny map".
So, I'm trying to figure out what to do. As I see it I have a few options:
1. Do epic content anyway using the paladin heroic levels + Draconic Incarnation. I suppose it could be a worse pairing, since at least both classes are Cha-based, but not much seems of value and I'm not sure it will be much fun doing epic stuff with a gimp combination like this. Am I wrong?
2. TR right away at 20 into something that will work well with Draconic Incarnation and do the epic stuff after releveling to 20. But I've already got a sorc, wizard and cleric past lives, I want to wait on bard in the hopes it will be improved, and I'm not sure what else goes well with Draconic.
3. Buy a "cheat key" from the DDO store. I hate to spend points on something like that, though, and I don't think there's anything adjacent to Draconic that will help a paladin much.
If I do TR, I'm not sure what to go into. I was originally going to do Arty next, but again, I am not sure I will have a destiny unlocked that's a good fit. I don't have a good feel for what classes are good matches with what destinies.
Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks!
