I have just made my way into epic levels for the first time and have been having a blast. I've run through some of the explorer areas and have gone back and done a few quests I was familiar with on my way up including a EN devil assault, a hard run through VON3 and 5, EN Chrono, a solo run through EN the snitch, even a few of the new Eveningstar challenges.
However, my gear is all that you would expect from someone who has never played in Epic levels before and as such I am sure I'm not qualified/ready for Epic Elite. That being said... I'm sitting on an elite streak bonus of roughly 370 dating back to when I used to play in 2012. This probably isn't that high compared to most of you vets, but I do enjoy keeping that record.
My goal is currently to make it to 28 (I'm 22 at the moment), any tips for attempting to keep this streak? Is this a fool's errand and should I just break it? Are there easier elites that I could be running even as a first time epic character (Artificer)?
I am willing to abandon this streak if necessary, but I would also be willing to take a slightly longer/slower approach to reaching cap if it was feasible to do without completely inconveniencing myself. Any advice would be welcomed (also any advice in general for someone doing epic levels for the first time).
