Default For new Immortals

I thought I'd start a thread to advise new Immortals.

So here's two things I've learned from running my first three Immortals

1) Take Immortal Knowledge as your first power. Those extra 5 skill points mean you can fill up the Counter Skills by level 50 with two points to spare


2) Save those imp and upgrade to Tier 3 as quickly as possible. Whatever Path you've chosen it will be worth it

IK is absolute bs. You want the ap and the xp bonuses. Course, with some paths its better to save your imps for a faster tier 3 experience.

I disagree on the Immortal Knowledge as well.

As much as I like skill points, I found Explorer far more useful than the points have been. The ability to stay in sub-locals more (which generally give better xp and treasure) has caused me to level up faster.

As for the Path upgrades - I think it depends on the path. As a Chosen, I found that the Tier 2 has been worth it, but haven't felt like I needed the level 3. Besides, some of the other skills are fairly decent as well. Like the loot upgrades - those that give bonus xp mean that you'll outpace your gear pretty quickly (making that Haggler skill so very worthwhile).

I agree that Legendary Hunter is very good, but from now on I'll be taking it second. I've found that without Immortal knowledge, or some kind of AR/DR bonus from your Path it's difficult to enter- or stay in a sub - until you are almost through it level wise.

Also agree about outpacing your equipment, but with IK you can start of with 2 or 3 skill points in Haggler.

With my most recent Immortals I started one with Legendary Explorer and one with Immortal Knowledge. I found the run through with Immortal Knowledge less problematical. In the end it probably comes down to your preferred style of play, I find I prefer IK as a start. Having said that Legendary Explorer really comes into it's own once you hit the Elite levels.

I'll agree with you there - it all comes down to play style. With how I run Ienzo, Explorer has been more of a boon to me than the IK would have been.

That being said, I do think that there are a few powers that can wait until later to be gotten (like Leg Drinker or Time Twister). To be honest, Ienzo at least probably won't pick up Mirror Realm for awhile - I so rarely fill his backpack due to his advantages, and when I do, I'm more likely to Cube it down.

But I'm a long way from that still. Haven't had much time to play lately (especially with my monster tracking and the release of the new Kingdom Hearts game) either.

question from someone about to achieve immortality for the first time..lvl 53 now. its taking me enough months just to come this far, lol. i've read up on the good starting immortal powers, but i'm finding it hard to choose which immortal path would best help someone like me. this is the only character i've chosen to come this far with so any suggestions would be a boon

it depends what you want, but the quickest way to go through the levels is to choose Demigod.

When you get the Demigod to tier 3 in the path power you can use the believer points to buy xp and jump from level 43 or 44 to level 55 each time round.
