    However, one valid use of these tokens is to level epic destinies that you really hate running quests with (like Magister with a melee build or Legendary Dreadnought with an arcane build).

    Booooo! That would have made them much more preferable for me.

    TRs can't use veteran status, TRs can't use the big XP tokens... the silly grind through early levels is a nuisance. (Luckily it's just up to 8 or so, then stone.)

    EXCELLENT write-up!

    1) One thing I'm not sure about is if this is per saga run-through, or one and done? IE, can I skip, say, Don't Drink the Water every time I do Perils of Cormyr or just the once?

    2) Epic Perils of Cormyr includes Impossible Demands, Unquiet Graves, Lost in the Thread, and Battle for Eveningstar

    3) Your tables inspired me to edit the wiki page to incorporate a similar one. Hope you don't mind!

    Each time you claim a reward it resets what you can skip. So if you wanted to, you can skip Don't Drink The Water each time you run through a saga that has it in it.

    Updated the table and double-checked all the other saga's. Cheers for spotting that.

    If that's true, why NPC don't want to take my shards for skip in MotU saga?

    It is true. Or are you suggesting that Turbine in their wisdom would only allow you to spend astral shards as a one-time only deal? Really?

    As for your problem, who knows. Ask for the details of the quest and look at the bottom of the list where it details how many times you've used the shard or VIP skip option.

    When I look at mine, it shows 0 out of X after I claim my reward.

    Are you below the maximum number of shard skips for that saga? Are you going into the correct place to spend your shards? Are you selecting the (Donate Shards for Elite completion) option? Do you have enough shards?

    Be sure and come back and let us know if it's one of the above.

    I completed saga once, shortly after they came out, donated shards to have 1 EE done, then more to upgrade to true elite.

    Shortly after they reactivated sagas I found that I have almost all quests done on EE after helping flagging someone through underdark and demonweb.

    I needed forest quests and dont drink the water.

    I completed forest quests, wanted to skip well with shards.
    NPC says I already used skip option in this saga.

    Filled ticked, it was closed after 1 minute with standard answer 'Its a knonw issue, we can't help you, G.T.F.O. and have a nice day.'

    I managed to get pug for green dragon, claimed my reward. When I log in I'll check if it allows me to pay shards for skip.

    a question, as i'm returning from an extended break form DDO:

    do the quests for a Saga need to be run in the order the saga lists them or can they be run in any order?

    Any order is fine.

    quick follow-up question: i get that you can do them in any order, but do they all have to be done together or can you do other quest from outside the saga in-between these? so can i start the gianthold saga and then do a non-gianthold quest in the middle and still get the saga bonus?

    thanks!
