    Question Has anyone finished a Heroic Elite saga yet?

    Just curious.

    I'm running my level 24 monk/wizard through, It's going pretty quickly - I'm about halfway through - but I'm probably not getting any more time on Lamannia for the next few days.

    So if you already have, please post what the Saga rewards were?

    Finished the Gianthold saga, Heroic Elite.
    I think it was 64K xp, 15K guild renown, and about 4 +1 skill tomes. All the skills were garbage skills I didn't want. I took the XP.

    I also did gianthold elite on my druid, but I don't really remember what the rewards were, I took the xp. There was the standard grouping of xp, guild renown, and a coupla tome choices that weren't druidic.

    Yes, I have completed the Heroic Elite Saga in Gianthold. However, I only did it because my running mate, on his 3rd life, wanted to finish all the GH quests for the xp. Myself, I wouldn't have run it on my own.

    Edit - Whoops! The rewards were a decent xp crystal, that was, of course, BtC. Also had a 15k Guild Renown token that I did take for my guild's progress. Several tomes of skill upgrades, all of which were BtC and useless on my Monk.

    Last nite I just finished all 3 heroic sagas on a toon.

    The rewards are accurately stated on the DDO for True Elite.

    The experience various across each, 64k, 72k I think, and I think 114k.
    +1 skill tomes in gainthold
    +2 skill tomes in other two.
    15k guild renown in all three.

    I opted for guild renown. Drank a +100% pot I had before getting each end reward and ended up giving the guild 213k guild renown in one shot. Pretty decent I thought.

    I seen 65k for end reward on GH saga elite completion..also had 9600 guild renown and various +1 skill and +2 skill upgrade tomes.

    The eveningstar heroic sagas seen both at 75k xp, 15k renown and various +2 skill and +3 skill upgrade tomes. Keep in mind there are 2 heroic sagas with virtually the same quests except on has riddle and murder by night the other does not, so if you run the 1st saga you only need to complete 2 quests for the second saga....definitely worth running these IMO.

    The XP is different based on the level of completion. To get True Elite, every quest in the saga has to be completed on Elite. This is what I did and got the XP values that I listed and it matched ddowiki.com.

    If you do most on elite but a couple on hard, you will not get true elite, but they do call it elite. You will get slightly less values. Not sure about the tomes, but I do know guild renown is likewise less.

    true elite is 46k, with at least a 20% pot and stuff it is 68k-ish.

    Unless you're talking EE. 46k is the "true elite" reward for the heroic elite.

    The harder heroic sagas do have more XP than that, but they are very, very tough to get a group for.

    Between being in FR and so needing flagging (flagging that is slow and fairly difficult if you maintain an elite streak) and the quests requiring people to somewhat bring their A-game for quests with awful XP, these aren't being run at level on heroic elite much at all.

    Generally first lifers can't get there, and third lifers are too under the weight of the oppressive XP curve to tolerate running things that are not good XP/min, especially when you log on and the daily XP ransack system rewards you for running 2-3 more Litany, 2-3 more RWTD, 2-3 more Sane Asylum and 2 more Sins of Attrition and A New Invasion - that often is your whole play session over.

    This life I do intend to run Gianthold on heroic elite and heroic hard though.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    To be honest I'm a bit glad for the GH heroic saga. I used to dread the crucible and though I didn't like seeing it removed from flagging I spent a lot time doing other quests instead. I think I might actually know the maze and the swim now. (after, what, 3 years and change?)

    The horrible part in Crucible elite is surviving after looting the Horn of Agility, IMO.

    The swim is pretty easy if you have another player use the hidden control valve that suppresses the current for ~28 seconds out of every ~30.

    The proliferation of +4 wisdom tomes, however, makes the Test of Wisdom less trivial than it used to be - an interesting side effect.

    That's true, the swimmer build so far hasn't had a problem there.

    I cheese the wisdom test, though, by just sending a pet to die on the same door until that door is the right one. If I'm not streaking it I use the owlbear as it survives the traps.

    If by 'pet' you mean 'PUG member' then yes, I have been known to do the same thing. I'm never without raise dead scrolls.
