Saga

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Saga is a group of quests or even story arcs that characters can complete for an additional reward.

Introduction[edit]

Example of a Heroic, True Elite reward list

When running these quests, you will receive a number of “points” towards your reward based on what difficulty you run quests on. The benefits earned are a single choice from Experience Gem (consumed automatically on acquire), Renown Gem (consumed automatically on acquire), or a selection of 1 to 4 Skill tomes (Bound to Character on AcquireBound to Character on Acquire: This item is Bound to Character on Acquire), based on the total “points value” of the quests you have run. The higher the points total, the better your reward would be (and more tomes will be available to choose from).

Awarding points:

  • One point per casual/normal completion
  • Two points per hard completion
  • Three points per elite completion
  • VIP can skip one quest and count it as an elite completion (3 points)
  • Everyone can pay 5 Astral Shards to skip one quest and count it as an elite completion (3 points)
  • You can do the bypasses once per run through each saga.
  • You can also pay Astral Shards to increase the reward tier (from Elite to True Elite, for instance)
    • May only allow you to increase one tier.

Depending on the number of points you have accumulated, you receive your reward. There are four reward levels: Normal, Hard, Elite, and True Elite. For a Normal reward, you just need to have completed all the quests in the saga.

For a Hard reward, you need to have completed all the quests in the saga and have points equal to 1.75 * the number of quests in the saga, rounded down. So for example, if there are 13 quests in the saga, then you need a score of 22. You could do this by completing 9 of the quests on Hard, or by completing 4 of the quests on Elite and 1 on Hard, or any other combination that adds up to at least 22 points.

For an Elite reward, you need to have completed all the quests in the saga and have points equal to 2.5 * the number of quests in the saga, rounded down.

For a True Elite reward, you need to have completed all the quests on Elite difficulty (maximum points).

As your reward, you can select general experience (immediately granted), guild renown (immediately granted), and skill tomes. The number of offered skill tomes depends on your reward level; a single tome is offered for normal completion, and up to four on true elite (you can still select only one). Effects that increase experience or renown gain (for example experience elixirs or guild renown elixirs) also apply to saga end rewards.

Tip: The elixir only needs to be active when collecting the reward. Complete multiple sagas and drink an elixir before collecting end rewards for maximum effect.

End rewards for some sagas occasionally include lesser renown bonuses, such as Heroic Deeds or Tales of Renown. These offer less renown than the Guild Renown option.

Two sagas were released with the Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion, and an additional seven were added with U19.2. Update 22 added the Pirates of the Thunder Sea (heroic and epic) sagas. As of U22, there are a total of 4 Heroic Sagas and 7 Epic Sagas.

List of Sagas[edit]

Heroic Sagas[edit]


Heroic Sagas can be repeated, with a few caveats. Update 23 made Heroic 3BC repeatable every three days (Bug: although you can only pick up the saga every 5 days, you can run the quests at any point after 3 days for credit).

Epic Sagas[edit]
