How should I go about this?

    Back in june 2013 I created Daniel Light.
    I was tired of PC (Lanceo was his name, he was 80 CR) and had a Ps3 that was getting dusty, so I decided to use it.
    So here is my problem, I was unsure at the time if I was going to stick to this toon, with that being said I went fast through content not getting Investigations, Briefings & Collections.
    I was able to buy 90% of my collections but, I know MANY, MANY styles come from briefings, so how do i go about that?

    Do I just buy some scanners and go open world searching to find all of them?
    Where should I start my 40 hour grind to get all of these damn things?

    theres an app for that. i have maps that axah posted a long time ago that have all the original briefing & investigation locations for both cities. They are also numbered to match the listings. Anything new can easily be googled
    I just blew these maps up & printed them out...then x'd out the ones I picked up...way easier than goin in & out of your journal...unless you only need that 1 or 2 to finish.

    I just Google the locations of the styles I want. I don't even go for ugly styles like Steambunk because it's not worth it. Why work hard for ugly things?? They can also be found on YouTube, that's what I did for Sins of the Father and Hearts of Darkness Investigations and Briefings.

    I don't know which one is faster... printing all the maps and farming it out or a scanner to farm it out.

    As others have already mentioned, use sites like - that's what I did on Calamity XIV. Only ones I'm missing now are in mentor specific locations, raids and anything above T1.

    Pretty sure it didn't take me 40 hours though ;)

    Although I have completed the briefings, collections and investigations on one of my characters...and seeing as I don't really want the styles, I forsee some feat purchasing in my future :D

    Edit: Scanners are all well and good, but you still need to know where to look....and some of those things are on opposite sides of the map. Especially with the globals - which can be spread amongst Gotham, Metropolis and Central City.

    how many full styles feats are actually from briefings? I want to max and i mean MAX this guy out talking about 181 SP so i can create alts and not give a crap about SP since i could just unlock all of them :D

    just use, it's the easiest way to go about it and you don't need to buy scanners. If you're going to buy scanners, then you can use them while hunting the current briefing you're checking out under that site: you will end up picking up unintended briefings along the way that will save time later on when you have to finish them up. I believe you get a SP or a SP and a half for briefings and investigations (aka complete all briefings and investigations in the classic game gets you 100 feat points total, I don't recall if the DLC briefings actually give you feats, only rewards {marks/styles} but styles are what add up the most feat points).

    Unknown....but I don't think any, as most of the styles I'm seeing need rewards from collections, master collections, investigations and briefings.

    Plus don't forget there's feats for completing all "classic" breifings etc. I think...could be wrong on that count.

    I tried the map thing... might just take some time to get used to.

    I always use this place. Works good. Also there are these hi-res maps floating around that are invaluable for the open-world locations
