    Default Why repeat anything??

    This is the thing I don’t get about a lot of these 1-20 quest lists.. by repeating ANY quest you miss out on FAVOR!!!!
    FAVOR EQUALS FREE DDO POINTS!!!!!

    So for any TR train please DO NOT repeat any quest. Do more different quest. Serves two purposes... One) you run much more more content get Eva player VARIETY. Two) by running different quests you get more favor

    Look man... If you want to get favor, then by all means, get favor all you want...

    BUT DONT!!! Come to a post that is designed to explain how to level up quickly, and say that they are doing it wrong, because you don't like it.

    favor isnt the point of this build.

    its time to hit cap and tr.

    and for that purpose it works

    yes you can get a fair amount of tp by not repeating but you lose some efficiency

    This has been my strategy so far, but I imagine it takes a lot longer than the other method.

    Question about making a second account for an SC opener:

    When you run one, do you necessarily need another computer to login with the opener?

    You can't have two instances of DDO running on the same computer.... or CAN you?

    You can, so long as you are using the official launcher, instead of the steam launcher.

    While this is true, it ends up being a net loss overall. The sooner you TR, the sooner your favor resets, the sooner you can get more free DDO points doing easier/faster quests. If you spend twice as long hitting 20 for only 50% more favor, then you've lost favor per time invested in the game.

    At the end of the day this guide is a framework for what you can build off of for what you enjoy. If you don't like repeating quest, then...don't?

    If you don't mind tinkering with stuff as well, DDO-ML allows you to launch multiple sessions pretty easily. I've been using it for years now. So much better than using the official launcher.

    For the people just above me
    Steam Launcher, Official Launcher, it doesn't matter, you can open the options menu on the launcher (Found by hitting the tiny downwards arrow thing next to the minimize and close buttons), click options, and then in that menu, tick the "Keep Launcher Open" box.

    Thats it. Put your credentials in, log in. Opens a new DDO tab. Launcher stays open. Backspace credentials, put credentials for account 2 in, log in, DDO launches second tab. Repeat until you have all your accounts open.


    For the original commenter / OP, I like the list. I'm using it currently. But you are apparently a much better player than I.
    WW at level 3. Yup ok I got through the first half on R1, that was...tough but doable.
    2nd half of WW at level 3. This is lv 4 content my dude. 4/6 R1, at level 3? (I did try it. I died. I went back at level 4 with my RP spent and had a much better time lol.)

    Necro 1 at level 5, yea ok thats lv 7 stuff R1 at level 5 but I guess people do that now....Also Bloody Crypt at level 5. So now you're doing level 6 / 8 R1 at level 5. Ok.

    And it continues on like this. I don't know how you do it, but good on you?

    And this is in 31 hours with no pots.

    Even when I can solo R1 stuff at -2 level it makes it slower.
    Doing it at -3 level, assuming I make it through the quest at all, would make it a snail crawl.

    I imagine if you put some extra stuff in to at least get rid of the -3 level stuff, you could potentially do it even faster than 31 Hours. But maybe you just blitz through -3 level stuff, in which case nice going I guess.

    Have you thought about how you'll update this with the new XP system?

    This analysis seems to indicate at the very least that multiple runs of the same quest should start with the lower difficulties first:

    Unfortunately I don't really play DDO anymore so I can't comment on how well this works or not now. I imagine it shouldn't change too much other than as you suggest changing the order you do re-runs. VoN4 might be slightly less great now, but other than that I never relied heavily on things like optional XP.

    If anyone confirms my quest list is straight up garbage now, please let me know. I still see people recommending it on Reddit so I imagine it's somewhat viable.
