We’re doing a first life, using only what you find, only running free-to-play content, all the way to 20 with a Halfling Rogue and a Human Paladin.
One note: Dubb said he might rage quit if we do n/h/e for every quest so we’ll be doing elite once and done unless we have to farm for exp, which we will note. That’s one of the things we want to see: how hard is it to level on just free content. One account is premium and will be our standard for exp so the vip xp bonus doesn’t affect our findings.
With that in mind we did some testing and n/h with no BB or streaks is about 5% more total exp than elite with full streak. So our run on elite and done is pretty close to running all on n/h if solo. If grouping, someone could of course work in some BB runs.
