Hey! Great thread!
Survivor has a special place in my heart because in Presearing it's the only real, game set goal that really takes time. I feel like I did everything else there is to do in this small, beautiful area, but r3 surv always keep me coming back.
I posted this on the gw subreddit 2 weeks ago, this is the character I'm working on for r3 surv, I also have a necromancer with about 200k xp since death, but I started working on survivor there at level 20 so it has about 350k xp in total, but I think getting r3 on a Ranger would be a lot cooler.
As far as I've been told there's only 3 Legendary Survivors in Pre, that being 2 mesmers (Stans and Intuition) and one necro (some dude on AE) so there's still a lot of room to do some crazy stuff!
Myself, I prefer to only do the one quest per day so I get flat 1k xp and I do it with a level 10 alt so the mobs are scaled to their lowest possible level as I can't be bothered, and I also really dislike bandit farming, so if I hit rank3 it will be years from now, but I'm in no rush.
Someone also suggested a double charr quest farming and I think it's the highest xp I can get per hour (~850 xp per a 20 min run, 2550xp per hour, better than Bandits at least for me) but for a Ranger it's pretty tedious and you have to be on your toes always, so I don't think I'll keep doing that as well.
Anyways, enough of a writeup, best of luck to you Teejay (maybe first r3 Elementalist?!) and to anyone else grinding this prestigious title!
Awesome! Great to read your approach, I feel very similar haha. I try to do the 1k/day if possible and when I have a half an hour here or there I do the Utini farm to speed up the process a bit. I try to stay on a 10k/week schedule (5-7k quests, 3-5k farming Utini). But yeah, at that speed it will be almost 2 years before getting Legendary Survivor. I hope I can pick up the pace a bit!
I actually tried going for Legendary Survivor on two other characters before settling on the Elementalist, a Monk and a Ranger. My Monk died at 160k when I was doing Hamnet/Bandit-farming, unfortunately. It felt quite risky for a Mo/W to solo those two Bandits and in the end it was fatal...
And then my Ranger died at 200k doing the Undead-quest in the Catacombs. It's quite tricky not to get snared by the Undead Illusionist and subsequently overwhelmed by the Restless Corpses, Bone Minions and Undead Necromancer (all that physical damage and degen really hurts Rangers!). Because of this I still don't do the Undead quest on my Elementalist. Call me scared haha
Celebrating a small milestone:
Passed the 337,500 mark. If only there was 1 in front of that haha
