Sorry, I know this has been talked about to death, but I´m late to this party and unfortunately haven´t been playing for years…

I´ve been playing for less than a year. And I´ll get this out of the way now, I have no clue what my final fealty will be, and I don´t plan on making my decision soon.

I´ve got permed so far all 8 fealty buildings and all 8 Sand Steeds. I want to perm all 8 of the +16% stats (64 reins), all 8 level 90s, Arms of the Kraken, Ours is the Fury, Fire and Blood, and Unbowed Unbent Unbroken. That´s a total of 104 more reins.

My bright idea was to do the 90s next, so that I can simultaneously do the Breaking Ties storyline up to Part 15 to get a speed seal (Nymeria, Lann, or Bran).

Now that I´m almost done with my first 90 perm (I´m at Part 11 and at level 80), I´m thinking that the Breaking Ties storyline is so long that I should have enough time to get 2 attempts to craft one of the items from the fealty buildings. Seeing as how I´m short some decent trade armor, that´d be a good place to start.

So should I be perming Unbowed Unbent Unbroken first, to boost chances of getting a superior result? And besides Sundries Stall in Market and Aviary in Glasshouse, is there another way to increase percentages of getting superior results for crafted items (besides gems of course)?

Personally, I wouldn’t waste your time on the talents for “superior results” since they just make items with different prefixes.  Unless you “got to have them all” mentality for the permed talents, most are not necessary.  It all depends on what you want from the game.  If you love AvA, the extra % can help with attack power.  The more useful talents are Winter Is Coming (Stark) to heal your SS faster and any/all silver gathering talents. 

If I ever did another RI on my main account, I would end as a Greyjoy.  There are so many useful silver talents there.

For so many reincarnations, you will definitely want to invest in Peerless Speed gear. It will carry you through every reincarnation faster, you’ll have speed gear for AVA when you are between RI’s. You will have that speed gear when you need to send barters to alliance members and swindles to everyone else. You will have that speed gear for all the adventuring you will have to send your SS on when you pause to craft.

For Trade: Daenerys’s Harpy Whip (seals: Bran the Builder’s Mark) , Khal Drogo’s Gold Belt (seals: Bran the Builder’s Mark), and a Green Dragon (seals: Littlefinger’s Insignia)

As for what talents to focus on. Personally, I am not perming anything that increases the chance of a higher quality item. The reason is that you will do -a lot- of crafting. You will spend most of that crafting on your dragon. You do not want to get a peerless pyre, a peerless dracarys, or a peerless ancient horn. You cannot use those to craft. You will find a deep smoldering rage in your heart every time a crafting mat turns peerless. I choose to avoid that dark passenger personally. Instead the percentages are a really good choice, I love mine for AVA. But faster bread, awww yeah! nom nom nom! Or faster adventures, faster crafting, cheaper sworn swords (you will buy so so so many), faster building upgrades, more silver from PTP, yes please :D even reducing the cost of producing items is waaaaayyyy better than the increase of quality in an item.

But those are just my opinions :D

Also….GO TRADE TEAM! -high five-

Ok, let’s save you some time.  If you are going to settle into a house, you don’t need to waste 17 or 33 RI perming those traits.  So that means that Greyjoy (Arms of the Kraken), Baratheon (Ours is the Fury), Targaryen (Fire and Blood), or Martell (Unbowed Unbent Unbroken) should be one of your final houses.  As it is RI week and you don’t want to waste any time, work on getting the 16% from Lannister, Tyrell, and Tully this week.  That’s 24 runs that you want to get done at some point, according to your plan, so get them done now.

Yeah, I had that plan too.  But even going up to level 90 doesn’t take nearly as long.  If you want to be competitive for AvA or have something else in mind (using a free dracaryns from the QM), then go for the seals, but for the most part, they aren’t worth the effort.  You can get a legendary barter and steal quest seals pretty quickly on the last two volumes, if you need the speed.

The crafting bonuses have been NERFED.  First they applied to all items, then they applied to rare and above, now it’s just legendary items.  I have them permed, but it was such a waste of time.  Don’t go after them at first.  Go after the 16%. Work in the GP/CP when it’s AvA or there is another reason to slow down.

And some advice,  you want as least three SSs that can run through quests with 70% reduced timers.  Right now Marcella’s Insignia is in the shop, with 3% faster quest speed.  Six of those plus Sand Steed take your speed up to 42%.  The Surprise Attack package is also helpful for RI, but I don’t recall Harass being an attack option a lot of times.  There are a lot of spy, barter, fight, and steal questing seals as quest rewards, so I basically used those attacks.

You will spend most of that crafting on your dragon. You do not want to get a peerless pyre, a peerless dracarys, or a peerless ancient horn.

Just so you know Getting a superior item has changed. For example you can’t get a peerless pyre anymore cause DB in all their wisdom made it not possible to get affixes on anything unless it is legendary or better already.

I have an expert pyre and I quote enjoy it. Dracarys is a boon it can’t become peerless. The ancient horn is already peerless if you are lucky enough to craft one. Perhaps you meant great horn? That said if you would like to see some of the items that you can’t get anymore and would like them back you can check out this thread. https://forums.disruptorbeam.com/gota/viewthread/61596/

Now that I am done with my affixes agenda I will post about what I have done for RIs.

So, for RIs speed gear is exactly what you need. You already have sand steed and that is good cause you have many RIs ahead of you.

I use these 3 items for RIs. Podrick’s axe sealed with marks of R’hollr, Roose Bolton’s dining attire sealed with seal of the 7, and I am fortunate enough to have a young dragon sealed with MoR. Also I have 6 more MoR on my MC. This give me 37% speed from the get go. With only 33% left to reach the cap. I wouldn’t buy the direwolf patriarch. I know people will disagree here but you won’t need it and it becomes obsolete after RIs are done. If you don’t want to buy general speed gear or don’t have a dragon then buy speed gear of a specific action (bat, int, trade). I say this because you can always use this gear even after you are done with RIs.

Now, what to perm. ofc start with Fealty buildings. After this is done there are some priorities but depending on what you are doing you may not reach the needed level to perm other talents. I would recommend the +1 command points but you have to be lvl 90 for those. For short RI’s or speed RIs I would do action talents. If you level is high enough there is Winter is coming in Stark. As far as the fury is ours and the UUU in Martell is going to be up to you since DB has limited this to legendary or better. I would do these last if you really want them because hopefully DB will change it back to rare or better but who knows. If you reach lvl 23 growing strong in Tyrell. This makes bread faster to help you with more RI’s. Get that next. Everything else is up to you but you will have plenty of time to think about it if you to talent points.

Now final fealty. Most do Greyjoy because there are several useable talents in that fealty. So if you are going to I think Greyjoy will be your choice here to save you some time. If you want to get them all then I suppose this doesn’t matter.

Sorry it was so long but there is no way to really sum up which is the correct way to RI since it is up to what your own priorities are. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I myself started out with the trade speed gear myself until I was able to get generalist gear.

Also a player I look to in the way he plays is Dorian Stromgarde. He is a serial RIer and could probably add to what I have said.

Good Luck!

As far as AvA, I haven´t worked up the courage to try it yet. It´s a little intimidating to look at when you have no clue what you´re looking at. Btw, is AvA a decent source for gold? I am in short supply of gold at the moment.

I have Battle speed maxed out. I have Needle with 6 Nymeria seals, Robb Stark´s armor with 6 Nymeria Seals, Direwolf Patriarch, Horseshoes is unlocked, and Sand Steed is all permed. I have no Trade or Intrigue speed stuff yet.

I have 20 permed SS.

It really depends on your goals.  If you’re just trying to blow through Volume 1 then a single stat strategy is fine.  I think trade has a little bit of a benefit over the others since it helps with silver, but the others have some speed advantages.

On the other hand, if you’re doing the higher level volumes for crafting resources every life then a generalist strategy does have some merit.  The quest difficulty in the higher volumes can be rather high in parts, and there is often a single action with lower difficulty than the others.  So, being able to operate in all nine actions will result in less failures.

Personally I use Lightbringer, Jon Snow, Mature Dragon on my main character as a general rule, with one specialist in each of the nine areas geared with classic epics with 6/3 seals.  Of course, that’s a very long-term strategy for a lot of players and requires a lot of time to develop.

Its funny how many people suggested useless items because they didn’t read oc post. With aok and steed one already reaches adventure/quest speed cap with any gear.

For quest speed you get lot of seals per each long ri. You get seal of seven, expert travellers seal, watch around same time. Also you get lot of ravens of questing which are 1% to quest speed placeholders.

For trade armor now evolving lost chainmail to ancient one is obvious as you get everything for one attempt from gs rewards. Second attempt isn’t that hard you need only get 4 scorched mails and 6 additional pyres.

You get gold from tales, gold from ava is out of reach for reinc players.
