Character progression without RvR

Post#1 » Tue Jun 18, 2024 12:58 am

Good day gits! So I have odd playtimes that don't always line up to frequent SC pops or oRvR/keeps/forts etc. I was wondering what you all do to make character progress while there is a lull in RvR. On my cr40s I figured I could do some crafting mat farming, but on the lower CR toons I don't want to really build crEXP if I can avoid it but I still want to make some meaningful progress. Any suggestions?

Cosmetic farming, maybe? Chasing that Trophy Tokens that i forgot what is called, the one u trade for trophies. And doing every Epic Quests, there is one in each tier for every pairing and some of them give some cool looking items.

Those shouldn't give a lot, if any XP. A lot of Tokens come from killing a single mob, and if you're in T3 doing a T1 Epic Quest u shouldn't get much XP from each quest

Yea, I kind of screwed the pooch and my 40s are only RR 34 and 35 :( but I didn't know better when I came back to the game. I almost feel like I need to start over on my BG since its 26/19...but 200 talisman so I don't want to delete it.

So being in a bad hole with such low RR sucks so trying to make up for it in other ways while RvR is low

Low rr matters much less than what lot of people like to tell. Depending on class, setups such as 3 conq/dom (boots+ gloves which you can btw buy from ah, + belt), +4 sent, work fine, and it only takes rr 42. Or for tank, mix of 2 ruin or 3 redeye (for the armor bonus), with something else. +There is the beastlord, which can allow for some interesting setups as well depending on class. For some really low rr tank, can even use 2 ruin + 3 redeye (including belt)+ 4 beastlord (pocket+back+gem+1 more), with 3 Winds jewelry, will give you decent armor + resists with no rr requirements whatsoever.

Yeah as the poster above said, it can be dealt with. Go farm some pve gear sets, some of it is really good. Finding groups can be tough, but continue to poke away at your RR with open wbs and scenarios. Eat your renown potions (i think you can get a few free in K8P)

I was just thinking about it. If I'm playing a tank I think I would have more enjoyment, getting my CR level up for more skills and then getting the ruin/redeye and having RR catch up as it would go faster

There's 4 quests in K-a-K or K8P that take max 10 minutes to complete for 4 renown pots (or 3 and an epic Trophy item). "Social Values" for Order and "Our House, Our Rulez" for Destro. Youtube vids easy to find for each.
