“Had a blast with DDO static group last night. Btw bravery bonus needs to be cut. Too generous. Way too generous.” – Rowanheal
Oh my, lov what level are you? 6? 7? And where is your bravery streak at? 20ish? And correct me if I am wrong but aren’t you first lifers? I can understand your worry; at those levels with the skill level of your group members doing the level of quests your probably doing. I shared a lot of the same concerns.
You know what changed me? I started to notice how this life’s leveling was diverging from the others. And for me it was happening right away but I didn’t notice. I was running the same go to quests less, and hitting a wider range of quests; I normally would skip a few quests each level that the xp/time just wasn’t there. But getting a larger amount of xp for them made them seem worth doing. Sure there were still some repeat quests. But I found myself repeating less and doing other quests more. And until these last few levels the questing didn’t feel that much harder.
Currently I am level 11 (about 1.4 mill xp) running level 9s on elite. The challenge is about right. Even had a wipe and recall/start over in one of the red fins quests. And I am noticing that there has been a noticeable jump in toughness of the quests in the last few runs. I think at 12 that will change a lot with green steel becoming available.
Guess what I am saying is hold back your judgment on the bravery bonus for a little while longer. Or may be take a TR an alt or two and see how you feel. It is not ideal. But leveling to 20 on a double+ TR can be hard.
