Level 50 heroic character - why?

    Assume this is a thing for TLP folks to go directly to DB instead of the PL farmers?

    Is a level 125/max aa heroic for live next?

    It is likely for the TLP crowd as it is available once PoP unlocks and we are unlikely a heroic that takes you to max level/AA.

    no, just more art and persona-like additions. when you lack devs add art...

    Back around SoF they did this with free level 51's with full flawed. kinda wish we could get those again on live. even if we got to pay 500-1000 db might be fun to play agian. beats leveling from lvl 1 everytime
  5. Rijacki Just a rare RPer on FV and Oakwynd

    The 50 Heroic is only available when PoP is unlocked. Max level for PoP is 65.

    Why would they add a 125 Heroic when they not long ago added a 100? When the 100 was added it was 20 levels below cap. When the 85 was added, it also was not max level.

    Now there will be 50, 85, and 100 booster which is actually a decent spread for boosts covering low, middle, and the higher levels we have now. In several years when the max has increased more, we might get one that's higher than 100 but it's not needed now.

    The create Heroics at a level that can group with max levels. That's the reason for lvl 100 Heroics and nothing higher

    This is 100% intended for TLPs and should not be considered for Live. I'm sure it will cost quite a bit, making it an unattractive option for Live when you have 85 and 100 options.

    For a person on Live there wouldn't be much point. Hey ! I just dinged 50! Where can I find groups? :eek:

    Just charge and arm and leg for day 1 TLP and make it so the gear, packs and mounts makes it's way to parcels at PoP launch so we can watch as the level 50's scrounge around for Rusty Weapons to hit things with in the newbie zones! :p

    I just dinged 85 or 100! Where can I find groups?
    -- none to be found

    I just dinged 125! Where can I find groups?
    -- rinse & repeat

    How long does it take to go from 1 to 50 on a live server? 2, maybe 3 days of casual playing?
  12. phattoni Augur

    maybe 20 hours or so tops, exp is pretty fast, if you do it casually you can spread it over a few days.
  13. Laronk Augur

    now i want to solo speedrun to 50 on a new server!
  14. Yinla Ye Ol' Dragon

    did 1 to 43 while the guild was raiding and I was benched, so 2 and half hours. Likely less than that to get the last 7 levels to 50. Either way it is less than a week.
  15. Nennius Curmudgeon

    And the coolest thing will be when you don't even have to play at all to level. Doh. Overseer has that covered already.

    Overseer has got to the stage now where it is annoying, and I cannot be bothered with it. I don't mind leveling, usually just happens when I'm camping gear or doing quests.

    Planning on lots of Iksars on Teek, just to do the Kunark quests. Levels will happen when they happen. :)

    So now we see why unlimited AoE was nerfed to 30. So they can sale lv 50 heroic toons vs letting us easily do it on our own.

    1-75 took me 4 hours listed on /played on my fastest effort. But normally, if aint being all sweaty about it, just about 5-6 hours.

    It goes faster as you get higher, so aprox 2.5-3 hours til 50. 50-60 is 15 mins, and 60-70 15-20 mins. With those last 5 to get 75 being nearly a half hour.

    On live, a level 50 heroic makes zero sense. It doesnt really get you anywhere useful, and only shaves a few hours off play time, which even though is the slowest bit, it's also the most fun. I quite enjoy pulling those trains in the ole stompin grounds of Unrest, Lower Guk and the like. But what would be the point of a 50? Naggy doesnt require it anymore.

    Now everyone has their own special way of leveling I'm sure, but 1-40 I simply use mercs. By leveling two toons together (either with a friend or boxing) 2 wizo mercs are quite a bit OP. Nothing in the old world can hurt them, and they can bounce agro back and forth to deal with interupts. Anybody can do this, no special need for high level PL toons or ae clickies. Just in-game mercs. Can easily get you to 50 as well, but I usually bring in a purpose built 60 wizard to speed up those 10 levels to 50 as I absolutely hate Velks, and a pair of 40s cant handle Cazik Thule on their own.

    If the point of this is for TLP servers, that's a bad idea. I played Ragefire when that happened and it was the leveling like it was 1999 all over again that made that server fun. Do people really keep playing TLPs long enough to warrant heroics specifically for those servers?

    Now a 75 heroic, that I might use some station cash for. 75's have a purpose, and nearly all my toons have a 75 persona. I wouldnt mind finishing the other alts the easy way if the cost was right.

    I just did it somewhere within a week and a half or so.
