Hey, I’m new posting here, but I am a long time lurker.
I found RektbyProtoss’s speed-leveling videos super useful, but I didn’t have enough familiarity with the game to follow them without constantly re-watching sections of the videos and cross-referencing with GrimTools. So I made a one-page companion guide to aid my daddled mind (dad + addled).
I hope this helps people serve their altaholism in a safe and sane way.
Hehe, yeah I thought about the ambiguity, and then decided I liked it. Glad you got a little chuckle from it.
Also @medea_fleecestealer thanks for linking that collection of lore notes! Didn’t realize that existed. The purpose of my collection is narrower, it’s to level just enough to jumpstart a speed leveling run. They are all the notes suggested by RektbyProtoss as well as a couple other easy to grab notes.
Just as a general aside, this companion guide is really for players who have enough knowledge that they don’t need 100% hand holding, but could use some small reminders about locations as they progress. The guide only really makes sense after watching Rekt’s videos linked in the original post.
Leveled dozens of alts but took a year away and was rusty. Have to admit, I never knew about the whole ultimate part. Cheers.
I found this thread looking for something that dawned on me while watching his leveling vids, namely if there was a list/spreadsheet etc that notes important gear (MIs/loot on corpses etc) that are recommended to grab?
I know gear is sometimes mentioned in build guides as part of leveling, and in Rekt’s own videos, but I wonder if they’re written down somewhere in a similar quick reference manner?
Yes, exactly like this, but maybe with a focus more on lower levels, say 1-30, when crafting/vendors/gear aren’t quite as useful/numerous as later.
I was about level 20 Nightblade, planning on Blademaster eventually. One of your vids was on in the background and I caught mention of going back to farm for a Gutworm MI. Never heard of it (the Mark, not Seal), and my medal was crap at the time, so I jumped at it.
Even gear like Hevill’s Greatsword and Bernard’s Slightly Chewed Buckler. Neither of which I knew about (770 hours in) and only learned about from your vids.
There are a lot of MIs that have only one drop source that could so easily be missed (like Gutworm or Galeslice etc), but could be a potent addition to an early build.
Only thing that I can think of that’s worth saving at that level range even without Lokarr set is the Explorer’s set. Other than that just use whatever you find. Skill allocation matters way more than items at that level. You could literally run around naked and still do well, if you have a good skill allocation.
I guess I just got a bit carried away with suddenly finding all these lower level items that made me even more OP. Spent far too long with pots and the Lokarr set so those levels were all a blur. Cheers.
