I am getting ready to start life 4 on my future completionist. PL Bard (because he was built for my guild when you needed one for VON 6), Paladin (heal amp & they look really boring to me so I used the LH20 to duck it) and Monk (I enjoy them & they level quick). I really haven't planned anything out as far as builds or the order of lives. Some of the classes I plan on playing all 20 levels because I have never made an Artificer, Druid, Sorc or Rogue. Others I plan on using a stone to duck the grind on classes I have done or think are boring. I am also considering capping an appropriate ED at the end of some lives to break up the monotony a little and to avoid the ED grind.
I would love to hear any lessons learned by those who have completed their journey & those well on their way. What worked for you, what didn't. If you had it do all over again what would you do differently?
I am also unclear on using the stone, I have heard if you have 9 banked or have an XP pot burning when you us it that you will get more XP. True or false? Bug or WAI?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
