Congratulations Darstard
 
Today he reached level 300, making him the first player on american servers that managed to pull that off.
Thank you Darstard for letting me play alongside with one amazing and interesting person and wish you all the best in the future.
I would like to mention Alucard, who is also very near to 300. Keep going Alu, I know you can do it.
Good luck to you all :)

bobo baggins 12-26-2011 08:26 AM

Congratz on getting to 300 it is not an easy feat to do can't wait to hear that you made it to 400.

iTZKooPA 12-26-2011 09:38 AM

Congrats on level 300. No small feat indeed.

buede 12-26-2011 09:50 AM

Congratz Darstard. Awesome job mate!!!

Good luck to Alucard and Twotontim in the race to be next to reach the 300 mark.

Alucard 12-26-2011 03:38 PM

Couldn't have happened to a more stand-up guy. Congrats Darstard, you earned it.

WebsteR 12-26-2011 04:15 PM

Congrats Darstard!!!!!:bo:

Darstard 12-27-2011 07:09 AM

Thanks, everyone!!
It took a long time to get here, and the effort required more than just me. Many heartfelt thanks to:
- my valued sitters who kept things going while I could not
- my guild and the community for keeping me here
- most importantly for the timing of this:
- Charista for teaching me MAX XP way back when.

Also, congrats to Alucard and TwoTonTim, I'm sure they're @ 300 now too, with more to come shortly!!!!

Vizari 12-27-2011 11:06 AM

Are s2 and s1 really that close? Were these servers released on the same day?
Our first 300 is coming up in probably 2 days.

I'm nearing 300 myself, too. Only like 3-4 months away. xD

Anyway, gratz, Darstard!

nNelg 12-27-2011 08:10 PM

WOW - congratz!

I am close... another year and I'll be in the 300 club.
A year in online gaming is the equivalent to what, 2 epochs of Earth time?

Redda 01-02-2012 08:18 PM

That is QUITE the accomplishment, Dastard! Nice work!

Vyllyn 01-04-2012 07:22 AM

Mega congrats from myself and The Heavy Hand. You'll be hard to catch!

BMWGuinness 01-04-2012 07:26 AM

How long did it take you to get from 250 to 300?

Gynx 01-04-2012 11:21 AM

Here is some of the answer:

I made level 250 back on 2-Oct

I am halfway through level 276 now.

I use 300 thirst and a griffin every single day.

And the reset at 275 is so bad that it takes a week to gain just one level. xD

Looks like I got to L250 at the end of April. I think I got to L275 mid-August (~4 months), and then it took me ~5 months to get to 300 from there. Our guild bonus was about 150% back in May and has increased steadily since. I'm always mounted on a Griffin, I use 300 thirst daily and even managed a little more than that during Octoberfest.

iTZKooPA 01-05-2012 07:54 AM

Nice information for anyone looking to stay on your heels. Or those generally interested on the high growth of leveling.

For those interested then, I had a max of about 2.2 mill per 10 minutes at 274. And saw very regular 2 mill quests.

I seemed to have a max of about 1.5 mill per 10 minutes at 275. But rarely even saw over 1.2 mill.

I went from 4 days for a level to 7 days.

It seems to be a much worse reset at 300, from what I've seen. Guessing at the speed of our 300, it will probably take him 2 weeks for a level, at the start.
(Darstard confirms this speed?)

Darstard 01-05-2012 11:31 AM

Those numbers match up with my experience around L275 too, Vizari.
After L300, max per 10 minutes drops to about 1 million, and I'm seeing 800,000 regularly. Of note, we just pushed our guild bonus to 170% too.
According to my XP bar, I'm going to need 389,630,630 XP to make L302. I have almost 1/3 of that now. I'll post up here when I clear that and track my time to L303. I'm not expecting to defeat another dungeon for a while so it'll just be pure grinding.

To Playa: You've got about 5-6 months before I clear out D13. Some of the scouts (Bain?) are going to get there before me too. Best get moving on some new content!!! :)

For anyone wondering how I approach questing - read up on Charista's Confessions of an XP Addict. He built the early versions of that theory / paradigm when we were guildmates. He taught me, I listened carefully and applied it as faithfully as I could. Thanks, C!!!

Gumb 01-05-2012 02:06 PM

A little late I also want to congratulate you, as I know what it takes to reach 300.

Well done Darstard!:welldone:


edit: it must been a dwarf reaching it first:g:

How far are you guys on dungeon 13?
I've managed 125 myself 2 months back orso. Haven't yet been able to clear 126. And only one other than me cleared 125 as well.

Darstard 01-06-2012 06:15 AM

I managed to defeat 126 and I've had a few good runs at 127.
I know that Bain (Scout), Alucard (Warrior), and TwoTonTim (Mage) have cleared 125, and I'm sure there are a few others that I don't know about.

Vizari 01-06-2012 06:47 AM

What class are you?

We don't yet have a warrior that defeated 125. Only a mage (our highest level), and me (scout)

iTZKooPA 01-06-2012 08:26 AM

With (handfuls of) players from across the globe assaulting Dungeon 13, you better believe Playa is looking towards the future.

Congrats again, and to all those that were right behind you.

Didn't I read that Playa games declared they'd not add any more dungeons?

Bullbound 01-06-2012 12:53 PM

Yeah, they did according to an old news post by iTZKooPA.

bobo baggins 01-06-2012 01:11 PM

He did say Playa is working towards the future not what is was maybe it will be more dungeons maybe something else I hope it will be both myself the more things to do the better for the game.

Charista 01-10-2012 10:06 AM

D got 250 Apr 27, 275 Aug 8.

I got 250 Apr 27, 275 July 24 or 25.

Bain got 250 Mar 23, 275 July 26.

Glykon got 250 Mar 3, 275 around July 23.

Alien 53 got 250 Mar 19, 275 July 30.

I was away for the week of July 19-25 and couldn't track. I stopped tracking Sep 27 when I stopped shrooming.

iTZKooPA 01-10-2012 10:53 AM

Content plans are always subject to change.

The main issue with dungeons is that only an incredibly small slice of the community has experienced the dungeons that have been added since launch. Adding to that further would make the slice even smaller. I am not saying dungeons are doomed.

Sorry for the late reply. I'm a warrior. :)

Np. Nicely done. How much HP?

Darstard 01-10-2012 10:12 PM

With my current build and pots: 13,822,162

Vizari 01-11-2012 08:34 AM

Not bad. Must still have been a ton of blocking, though.

Closest I've gotten is down to 5 mill. (with 8.3 mill hp)
Doesn't seem to matter much whether I go epic gear or dex gear.

Darstard 01-11-2012 10:30 AM

Probably a combination of blocks and critical hits for me near the end of the battle. That's where they count most.

demonwarrior 01-13-2012 08:53 AM

Hey, just a quick question, How many :shroom: did you buy in total to reach level 300?

Darstard 01-13-2012 12:28 PM

Lots and lots.

How many did I spend wisely? Significantly fewer than I bought. ;)

Vizari 01-13-2012 01:40 PM

Hehe, I feel you there. Can be quite tempting and addictive to shop around a bit.

At least pots are made easier. If you always want to have pots up you don't have to shop every few days, and miss out on pots because you have no more room left.
