    Wrong. I never asked for tips on farming Mirian or gems.

    With the pending July update, the amount of XP earned by killing/shaming/recruiting Captains will vary depending on the circumstances.    Captains killed/shamed/recruited/retreated/etc during a Nemesis Mission will provide more XP then non-Nemesis (e.g Vendetta/Siege/etc) missions.     Will the XP earned be the same between killing/shaming/recruiting/etc in the mission?  Dunno.    From the last live stream, they did a Nemesis mission and the amount of XP earned by killing a Captain was in or around 14K I believe, that's roughly 3 X 'normal'.    What will be the new normal (non-Nemesis killed/shamed/recruited/retreated/etc Captain) after the July update?  Dunno.    So lots of questions remain.     

     

    Otherwise, I've been at Talion lvl 60 since shortly after Xmas.  The fastest/quickest way for me to level up the last 4-5 levels to reach 60 was to complete Sieges and Vendettas.   You can also use those XP Boosts (still purchaseable until July 16th with in-game gold), sign up to Monolith for the 3% increase in XP modifier and set the white 'Perfect Wealth Gem' on the Armor and Cap slots to get 15% each of extra XP.   Sieges will offer the largest volume of Captains over time.   I don't ever do those 'Fort Defense' missions as per Endless Siege - although they would offer a lot of Captains, the risk is that any who survive (by retreating/recruiting/terrified) have the possibility of unseating one of your pre-existing Captains as they slot in the region - and that's a BIG NO NO in my books.

    Thank you!! When you say Vendettas and Sieges, are you referring to online?

    Have you done those fort assault missions yet? IDK if you count those as story missions, but here's this: https://youtu.be/7vuRvxeg37E

    The Elven Rage glitch no longer works, but it's still possible to kill level 65 overlords. Sorry if this wasn't what you were looking for.

    All I simply want to know is - out of all the XP boosting missions that are NON story related; Online Vendetta, Online fort raids, offline orc missions and follower missions, offline vendetta missions (letting an orc kill you, then getting revenge by killing the orc), which would offer the most XP if grinding the same one(s)? That's all.

    As it currently stands, imo, the fastest (and safest) way to do this is via Online Sieges followed by Online Vendettas.    By safest that implies it occurs outside your world. so you can do whatever u want with enemy Captains with zero effect to your own world in terms of Betrayals, Captain nerfing due to replacements, Rebellions, etc etc.    I can't remember if you collect XP during friendly (eg non-ranked) Sieges, I haven't done one of these in a few months now and didn't pay attention as XP means nothing after you've reached Lvl 60.    You can meet any Community/Daily Challenge that way and gain Gems/Myriam as well - but I can't say for sure it's the same with gaining XP.   Also, for Vendettas, you have a much higher percentage of meeting/encountering enemy Captains when the Vendetta takes place inside forts.   So if you wanto to maximize your potential, participate in Vendettas in any region but MMorgul.   Of course in a Forted Region you don't now for sure where the Vendetta will occur (Fort or Outpost), but they more frequenly occur in Forts, and in my experience the closer to the Fort the Vendetta mission icon is located, the better your chances of it happening in a Fort.  The 'Revenge' or 'Death Threated' mission (non-Online) do not introduce any new Captains (only those from ur own region) so no they do not offer the same XP potential compared to Online Vendettas.   

     

    But all bets are off once the July patch is released, as XP earned will be changed depending on the mission/activity type.

    - AMAZING ADVICE. Thank you!!! This is an off topic Question, but, why does "The Etten" Quest, once completed, never show up under Siege Missions?

    Under the quests menu, every quest I've completed thus far, had a name when I started the quest, and when I look at my completed quests, it says the title of the quest next to complete. Why does the quest "The Etten", not appear, under the Siege Missions section? It just says something to the effect of "Nûrnen Captured." Am I experiencing a bug, or is this normal across all platforms?

    Sorry, I have no idea about the Etten.   I don't even remember what that game mission entails, what region it was in or where it lay in the Mission storyline (chronologically).     I finished all that stuff 7 months ago, and never bothered repeating any missions or restarting the game.  Still on my first playthrough, and without a New Save slot (which is officially not happening) I doubt I'll ever restart the game (unless my current Save is corrupted).  I'm on Xbox One.     I wil likely buy the game for PC when it becomes uber cheap and the last of the bug fixes released (this Xmas?), then start a new game on that platform.    So hopefully someone else can answer your question on that The Etten.
