Mainchenn hits level 25

Lots of deck-grinding... I've even started a Reinisch alt to buy up cards, inks, and pigments from the horde side when cheap ones show up (though I still need a go-between, since I can't buy it from my own alt). I also should have done more Rogue decks before the XP started going down.

To compare with Noor at level 25... back then, Noor had a 50% chance each day to have a battleground daily. Assuming she can do it (which wasn't always true), that's an average of just about 1,000 XP per day, which is 2 Swords Decks.

Two swords decks is 8 cards, each of which requires 2 of the rare milled pigments. Milling 5 herbs gives you about 0.4 rare pigments, on average (according to El's Inscription), so each card takes about 5 millings = 25 herbs x 8 = 200 herbs or 10 stacks per day. This is reduced when I can buy cheap cards that I need (I currently lack Ace of Swords) and when I can buy the ink & pigments. And this doesn't even consider needing to get the RIGHT random cards (though over the long run, it should average out).

Here are the quests Mainchenn did to get from level 20 to level 25:

I've got a few characters on Twisting Nether if you still need someone to post/buy auctions for faction transfers.

OK, thanks! Can you send in-game mail to either Mainchenn or Reinisch on Twisting Nether with your characters' names? I have alts in main cities and Booty Bay for both factions, so transfers won't take long.

Will do. I'll be on for a couple of hours later today, about 9 hours from now (now being 08:00 at GMT+10). Anyway, we should be able to tee something up.
