    Based on the current cost of turbine points you would have to buy the 200 dollar bundle 6 times to pay for that. So $1200 to "buy" all Iconic lives.

    Leveling Iconic lives from 15 to 28 is 13 levels, over more XP yes. But look at how much more you'll have finished when you arrive at completionist. Suppose you only do enough to get 1 of each iconic past life (and with it a "free" heroic past life). That's 4 classes scratched off your list, and 4 trips through 20-28 gaining ED XP, and Karma. I figure I managed to get a maxed ED every 3 epic levels. So running with that, at 3 Epic levels per full ED (very approximate I know) we have 4 Iconic/Epic TR's X 8 /3 = 10.6 ED's maxed out. So just adding 4 Iconic runs to your completionist Journey gives you 4 class past lives 4 Iconic past lives, 4 Epic past lives and essentially maxed out nearly all ED's...

    Hopefully I am not botching details here (I assume you get en Epic past like on an iconic 15-28 TR) because I honestly have not had the time to sit down with a cup of coffee and study the new system on wiki (assuming it's up on wiki already, usually a safe assumption); but it looks like you're trying to earn twice the XP in quests that have more XP, while gaining 4 times the benefit (Heroic, Iconic and Epic past lives and filling up ED's.

    I wouldn't be surprised if 5 iconic TR's isn't the new way to do completionist. Be interesting to know how much more epic XP there is per quest, so that XP number could be compared more accurately.
    you do not get an Epic & Iconic PL

    Iconic TR grants Iconic & Heroic PL

    Or, you could always hire a Korean kid to get your completionist for you for a fraction of that.

    At that point you are paying to not have to play the game. A logic that escapes me.

    People have been doing that for a while now. I'm with you though, paying to not play is something that escapes me. However, I get the feeling the most profits Turbine made this year comes from Otto's boxes, bypasses and store-only tomes.

    Capping at Lvl 28, and later lvl 30, and grinding your CoVs sounds to me like a lot more work than running a character to lvl 20 and TRing while another character farms Tokens of the 12.

    ^^^ and what I'm still doing that.

    Though, for xmas my RL friends who play generally toss each other TP or boxes/stones. Last one I called "farging paladin"; it was an awesome gift.
