      Waiting for your advice. Thank you.
      OK excellent starting point. Knowing that you're not the strongest and that others may be able to help is very good.

      So the good news is, we can help.

      The bad news is, the help we offer is not an instant fix, nor will it be an easy path.

      Also, the help we offer is more like an advice service. What we say, is simply advice and for you to take away to understand, interpret, evaluate and ultimately decide whether it's right for you or not.

      I've made a new toon on a new server and sadly I've been aimlessly leveling w/o a goal and direction, but my new friend gave me inspiration when he told me to slow level and get the title CRUSADER and get the Royal Steed mount(which I rush and peek in the arena shop to see the mount and the medallion, and I got star struck by those sweet beautiful things LOL). I currently stopped at level 37 with 42% on my experience bar, I've been trying to rush to 40 to get the free items on the "All balenors will rejoice part IV!" event, that I don't even know what can I get from it and thinking that it's worth to sacrifice my slow leveling pace. I will really appreciate it if someone can tell me what are the given prizes for this event.
      'Rushing' to 40 isn't that bad an idea. Especially on a new server, with the new server rewards. the level 40 rewards are items toward the legendary level 40 set. so this is good.

      However if you intend to slow level and build your strength, level rushing beyond 40, may seriously hinder your capability to complete dungeons without heavy casher help.

But thinking about the pros and cons with this strategy is adding my confusion and second thoughts if I want to pursue the slow pace or not . What would you do if you're in my position, cause I want to gain good amounts of honor and at the same time gain at least 1 BG chest a day(considering I can only 2 BG's cause of real life). And is there a replacement on how can I get gems if I don't farm BG chest and choose to gain the title as fast I can?.
      I would cart in one BG and honour farm in the second given this scenario. You have to balance out your gem requirements and your honour requirements.

      Bear in mind that once you get crusader, you can lose honour, and if your BR is not up to the task of defending an honour rank... you will lose big.

      I'm open for any advice and criticism cause I know it'll help me a lot and improve my battle prowess and at the same time learn some tricks from you guys. I admire you all in this thread! XD. . Thank you.
      If you fast level: Generally: You get absolute strength quicker. However, you'll be weaker for your level.
      If you slow level: Generally: you gain slower, but there's fewer who can beat you.

      Given that if you go fast you'll get the rewards anyway, I would level to 40, collect the rewards and then super slow down.

        Yes sir, I'll do my best to understand and evaluate on the advice you'll give me.

        I've decided to stay at the 35+ sir to build my BR and gain as much honor before wandering in the 40+ bracket.

        Yes sir I've made up my mind to get the crusader title before level 40 because of the mount and the medallion. I would really want an advice about this sir, on how much honor would I lose if I get killed in BG in the 40s(sadly I will be bully until I can get the 40 leg set.) How would you deal with this situation sir?

        Thank you for a very good guidance sir.

          Good luck with your plan! I hope it works out well for you.

          Honour loss and gain is based on the absolute numerical honour totals of the two players involved. Honour rank has nothing to do with it, even though many players will tell you otherwise.

          If both players have similar totals then it'll be lower total honour loss.

          If there is a large numerical difference, then the loss will be larger.

          The largest loss I have experienced or seen is -400. This took several more kills to recoup.

          As for dealing with it. potentially, you'll be gaining 400 honour from people you kill. It's swings and roundabouts, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

          Losing stings, but you get over it. Just take it in the manner you'd expect from people you take large amounts of honour from, to behave.

          • If you really want my advice about the character at this point it would be that given how you are currently sitting at around 15k BR @ level 37 (and this isn't bad, it's just not epic either) it will be a bit hard to actually make Crusader before level 40 unless you slow down to a near absolute halt.

            I would probably go to level 40 in order to start working on Void right away and be finished with your 40 set well before 45 and legendary well before 50. (You can probably easily make legendary before 45 too, though.)

            If honor is what you are after I can simply tell you that a mage wearing a legendary pve set in the 40-49 BG is an absolute monster.

            Edit, I'm a moron. Obviously you don't lose any honor at all before Crusader anyway. It's all up to you

              This is a plain stupidity coming from me sir, but I'll ask anyways. By "Absolute Halt" you mean less than 50k exp per day sir?

              So after you and sir Ginger enlightened me bout my stupid and arrogant plan sir(which is to get the crusader title w/o considering of the honor lost per fight.), I came to another leveling pace which is go throttle till 40 and after reaching it, halt like there's infinite time that would even stop if I reach 40 XD .

              I'll be updating my toon when I reach level 40 sir. This really helped me a lot with me decision making. Thank you sir!

              • It's not a stupid or arrogant plan at all. It's certainly doable. Question is just how much time it will take and how fun you will have. Mind you as I said it was me being stupid since you can't lose honor before Crusader anyway.

                However a mage in the pvp 35 set isn't half as fun to play as a mage in the pve 40 set.

                  Nah you're not stupid sir, not at all. I realized sir that if I concentrate on killing in BG, I'll be sacrificing an insane amount of BG treasure chest w/i 3 weeks or so. I'll just do it on my 40s sir, halting my level as much as I can, I'll just cart and let the time give me my crusader title XD.

                  A question though. When did you get your crusader title sir?

                  • Not until like level 48 or so. As I said, I'm stupid

                    I didn't really start to follow the slow levelling regime until level 45 and then I made some huge mistakes concerning XP gains which lead me first to 50 (not by choice), then to 55 (not by choice either) and then to 60 (and that was most definitely not by choice.) But I'm doing pretty ok.

                          Most of my levels of significance have been half forced. Like the game offering a mostly free mount for a load of XP, or getting bits for gear...

                              Easier MPD's, easier plunders, easier 3v3 arena, able to handle higher levels in GvG...

                              easier BG's too.
