So I posted this question a couple days ago (the poll is still open) but I figured I’d share my plan. I’m expecting to have at least 5000 Turbine points just counting the Loyalty rewards, but I know I will also get more for the various new deeds that are implemented for Reputation as my 3 mains each have a quite a few factions at kindred rank. Initially I plan to focus on Captain, Minstrel, and Warden but am sure that my Champ (more about her later) will get some attention too.
I know that the Wardrobe will be a big help to offload some of my storage issues but currently I’m using the Shared Storage as an extension of a couple characters vaults so I will have to end up getting some more Vault space. I really want to get to a point where I can use shared storage as a replacement for mailing items between toons, but currently it is overflow :(
On my Captain and Warden I’ll be finishing off Zeal to Rank 10 which is a bit more painful on my Captain but certainly worth it. They’ll also both be getting a bank space update as their banks are packed and I need the space for crafting.
My Captain and Minstrel are also pretty low on a couple Virtues but mainly Empathy and Innocence so a big chunk of my points will go to max those out. I will probably look and make sure there aren’t any low hanging traits there that I can grind in game, but Innocence is not one of my favorites to grind out.
The virtues that I’m focusing on I’m doing for two main reasons. First off, melee defense and armor value are universally important and make a pretty substantial and measurable difference to your characters’ survival. The second is that in all honesty, they’re a tad painful to grind out as those are mostly quest deeds and even worse they’re the top end of the tiered reward system for quests so I’d have to do 40 some odd quests in a zone to get the virtue.
Hopefully after all that I’ll then have enough leftover points to get at least the riding skill on my Champ such that I can avoid that riding quest ;) And I might buy a better horse as I’m a bit poor from trying to power through Scholar and Weaponsmith.
After all that, my priorities for my 500 point allowance and whatever else I earn are:
- More Shared Storage
- Stat Tomes
- Larger Wardrobe – I might not need this as I know I have similar items many times across my toons
- Virtues for my Champ
- Cosmetic Items
- Housing Items
But once I go through and clean up all my vaults and such to take advantage of the Wardrobe I might find that all I really need (or want might be a better word) to get are the stat tomes.
So far though, the results of the poll show that I”m quite in the minority in my thought process :) But, if you’re thinking like me, go vote and help me prove to myself that I’m not crazy.
