Good morning everyone. Looks like a little winter storm running through the D/FW metroplex is going to keep me home from work today and I need some suggestions on what to do.

I recently returned to AC (about a week or so ago) after a 5 years hiatus and I'd like some suggestions on some quests that can be done solo that reward with XP.

My characters are 103 (War, Life, Creature Spec), 135 (War, Life, Magic D spec), and 134 (Axe, Life, Melee Spec). I can't really run them in pairs, and I'm looking for quests that each of them can do in efforts to get them near 150 sooner than later so I can explore some of the additional new things in the game.

The Wiki page is a great help, but the descriptions on the XP quests often say Solo/Group, so I can't tell if any of them can actually be done alone at my levels.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Note: I'll also entertain suggestions on good hunting locations to level these characters.

Wow!

I did the Renegade fortress quest, and the follow up Burun Burrow quest. Started at level 104. Each quest gave me 45 mil in xp. Then I went to the NPC in Kara, and received an extra 82.8 mil in xp plus 15,000 luminance! Now I'm halfway through 106! Sweet! I'll try the rebel hideout next, since it seems his quest is part of this collection with the npcs.

Thanks for the heads up!

Even though it says you received Lum points, you actually can't till 200

I've had a steady diet of Colo mini boss coins and Wisp crystal runs daily and gone from 133 to 158. I want to run down past the fire part but apparently that requires a group, nobody likes to group on weekdays for quests like that. A few exp quests in there... Aerabaux... Quiddity Seeds... maybe a tusk or 2. Maybe an eater jaw or 2.

I recommend getting in on summonings as well.

#1 and #2 things I recommend:

1: Get flagged for the colosseum to do mini bosses on any/all characters.

2: spend a lot of time gathering the rare crystals, doing the jump to the bound wisp, and getting aggrated crystals in the 50+ dungeon/90+ area.

It pays off.

I've done this with my level 99, he's now 114 as well.

And my newbie I started for UA is up to 58.

I tend to gain a level a night so far for my top level char and a few levels for the others.

Matron coin is fantastic. use it LAST after the other coins.

Ok I seem to have plateaued out at 159... I need more ideas.
I still geta bout 25% daily? from the Colo Matron coin and then theres the other coins. I haven't been on a WIN yet so I can do master or the other guy coins.
I love these daily quests I can repeat they definitely help change it up.

So I have a level 159 and a level 115 (and many few below 60...)

Currently I have my characters on a daily regiment of Colo mini-boss coins and wisp crystal turn ins for the two bigger characters.

What are some big exp quests I can start doing to get out and level faster?

I noticed that doing the quests levels me faster than sitting on the DI/V Islands.

I've done a few of the quests with hand-holding of the bigger toons.

So far I've done:

Paradox Queen

Quiddity Seeds flagging
Elyssa/Thorston/Olthoi Queen ghost quest
Wisps I got down to the fire aggrated crystal (and have 5 markers so far) I'm tied to recall the entrance to that section of it.

Arabaux

Graveyard Colo
Graveyard Lord R... the one you get his triangle twice.
1 Summoning

I'm LS tied in the DI islands but I get my butt handed to me by pretty much everything so far and grinding is boring.


So I have a world of quests left. Leveling seems to be faster with Questing than grinding. After grinding until my eyes bleed in SWG, I'd rather not do that in this game.


What other ideas are out there? Ideally solo-able.
Its hard to get groups together without at least a day or 2 planning. I've come across people that would rather give you their pass down quest items than help you get it.

Mike,

The only suggestion I can personally make (since I'm still getting back into the swing of things) would be to go speak to the three NPCs in Kara. They are the exploration society characters, and there are two quests right now (Renegade Fortress and Rebel Hideout). Not only do the quests give a nice little chunk of XP, but the exploration society also rewards you for doing them.

I did the Renegade Fortress with a 110 mage pretty easilly... the toughest part was knocking down the front door with hollow rocks being thrown at me. When I went here with my 135 axer, I just hopped the wall and went right through pretty quick.

After that quest I ran straight on to the Burun Burrow quest with is pretty much part two to the Renegade Fortress, but I don't think it's required for the XP reward. With my mage this was a lot harder than it was with my Axer, but neither were real difficult.

The rebel hideout, I could not complete with the little mage as the dang Viam. enemies simply hit him too hard to get through safely. The axer though, breezed on through.

You mention a lot of things that you do daily for XP, and some of them I can't identify in the Wiki for research.

Where are daily kill tasks found?

I've gone from 133 to almost 140 in a matter of a couple of days (thanks to Icemageddon in Dallas keeping me from having to go to work) and it's primarilly because of quests. I need some more to do now that these timers need to count down.

EDIT: I did the Shield of Yanshi quest last night with the Axer, and prior to going into the dungeon I spoke with the NPC to start the Hunter Quest for Repugnant Eaters. Stuck around for a respawn or two for the Eaters in that dungeon and I got 70 mil for the Hunter Quest and another 30 or 40 for the Shield of Yanshi quest. Didn't take too long, might have rebuffed once, but didn't need the whole timer for the second round of buffs.

It sounds like the colosseum is for groups. I went through the normal one (not advanced) got to the 3rd round before I had to log out (wife was calling), couldnt log back in. While the third round was a tad challenging, I can only suspect that levels beyond that might be hard for a solo player. Buffed to the gills, all banes, but I was only using one weapon (imbued slash bow).

Level 104 Extreme Melee, spec in Bow/MeleeD. Will get arcane lore at 110.

I really dont do fellowships or groups very well given how the wife thinks I can simply pause this game at any time.

Right, the lower one will flag you for the 1st 4 bosses. You can be any level to do it, but usually a couple of higher levels will be in the fellow and they will go ahead of the group and actually clear the rooms before the little guys go into it.

Bi-Weekly: Bobos Medicine, Rebel Hideout, Asheron's Departure
Montly Quests: Matron Hive, Renegade Fotress + Burun Burrow,

Found shadow statues to be too difficult, cant progress passed Burun Liberator, stuck in a area with the portal and a rock and im supposed to use this rock, but cant.
