As I have said before, the game keeps changing. I keep changing as a player. I have goals and wants (like past lives) but I don’t enjoy leveling. When I first leveled Thaz I hated zergers, or disliked them strongly. I wanted ppl to not leave me behind. I don’t mind a good pace, as long as the party doesn’t leave me behind. Well, things have changed. I have become the TR zerger. If I lfm, I solo a quest, and let others tag along and help if they want, if it is a quest I know well. Spawn of Whisperdoom I for example didn’t know at all, so I let my party lead, and I just followed. Was a smooth run anyway.
I haven’t TR’d/ leveled that many toons. A total of 4 TR’s done, a total of 6 toons leveled to 20, 2 more on their way. But I know many ppl who’ve TR’d so much, that I’m embarrassed to run lowbie quests and not know them, or not know what or how to run for the fastest xp. I’ve been looking at the lfm, checking if anyone is running anything were I could just tag along, but there has been very little. I’ve solo’d some, just because it’s faster than waiting for a pug, but I have also run a lot with Osi and Luri. Both Osi and Luri have TR’d A LOT. Osi has 20+ past lives on his main, Luri I have no idea. He’s at least done completionist, how much more I do not know, but he TR’s all the time. Both of them are also premium players so rely on TP.
I used to hate the zerger who leaves me behind. Running with Osi, he usually solo’s the quest and I run after him if I can find him. lol! But I refuse to pike, I want to kill some stuff, so I usually break boxes and kill off trash while Osi does the main part of the quest. Yesterday Osi was busy with high end stuff while I wanted to run Maidae (lvl 14). I joined a group running elite gh walkups. I basically entered one quest, they finished it, then said they were going to take 16 and continue with the lvl 14 quests. I was told I was welcome to stay, but I felt like they were too much ahead of me, I was still a good bit away from 15, and I wanted to run the lvl 13’s, so said ty and dropped to do my own lfm.
I was joined by someone who had just TR’d into a bladeforged, so he was fresh off TR and hadn’t run anything yet. I told him I had been in the other group but that they were going too fast for me, and he said he understood, lol. One more person joined and we ran a couple of the lvl 13’s elite, at a good pace, but not too fast for me (too fast means some caster zergs to end and finishes while I’m still at entrance). After they left Luri joined me and took control of what we were running, which I appreciated him for. Don’t know if his style is the best possible, but he knows how to farm for xp. And with his boosted bb’s (fvs), he zerged the quests for us, and we got many runs done quickly. I think he said eeehn. That’s what we did. After a while I was getting pretty tired so I was more piking than helping, but it was fine. I was 1 rank from 16 when I decided to stop for the night.
Normally it takes me months to get to 20 after a TR, since I don’t like running heroic content. Maidae will most likely be my fastest TR so far. I’m wanting to get Maidae and Jarvanna to 20 asap, so I can get the free ETR hearts for them (vip).
Alright, that’s all from me for now. Ty for reading and have a wonderful day.

P.P.S. Yes, the game is becoming less and less newbie friendly. If you don’t know where to go, you most likely end up being left behind. I’ve more than once had someone drop my group because they were lost. Well, if we’re xp farming, we’re not really gonna go look for someone that’s lost, are we? I recommend, use wiki, pull up the map.
