Worst Stretch of WQ?

Simple poll, just for laughs and as a curiosity.

Which is your least favourite stretch of "Paperclip for a Villa"?

Optionally, discuss ways you kill time while doing WQ.

I often go afk or read the forums.

    On a few occasions recently. I've gone right from Hsusien (Sanc Bridge) to E. Barrier. MAN is that a long flight...
    Having said that, I hate any time I have to visit Tusk Town. Though that has more to do with bad memories of the place than any complaint over the route.

    But also do most people use land mounts, or do like I do, and fly majority of it?

    1~5 is the worst. Unlike every other waypoints that are usually on a circle path around the map, 1~5 has waypoints on opposite sides of the map (2 southwest, 3 high north, 4 even lower southwest). Sucks when you get them in a row. Either you pay teleport fees or waste a long time flying.

    Spoken like someone who actually has done a lot of WQ. Personally though, I'd rather skip 27 than 26. Going to 27 after going to 26 is backwards, and I don't like that one bit.

    I do the whole 22-29 stretch on land mount though... that's probably the quickest. So I'd have to say 11 and 20-21 are the best to skip.
    I post in forums. This one and others. That's why I post.

    I hate going from 3-4. That's possibly the only time (unless I plan to afk) where I teleport before book 30.

    Misfortune, no matter wtf I'm coming from, is a pain. Point blank.

    And Tusk Town, because I never liked that area in the first place (glided princesses at level 58...*panics*). I skip it 99% of the time though.

    Flying to save tele costs on 1-5 is putting an extremely low value on your time. If you can't more than make up the tele cost grinding with the time you saved, you have a problem.

    Misfortune is a dead end. If I can skip it, its a good WQ. If I skip stop 10 as well, its a great WQ. If I ever get lucky enough to get 9, [skip], 12, [skip], 15 I will stop doing WQ forever as it will never get better than that.

    The long eastward stretch after 15/16 is a pain. The landscape is all broken so you cannot effectively use a land mount and the teleport routes for the most part don't connect east west through the south portion of the map. Getting from 15/16 to 20+ is a bigger time waster (or tele cost sink) than the final run out to 30.

    Meh I really don't care where WQ takes me, if I'm doing it at all it's while I'm working, and have plenty of time to do it.

    The entire thing is a pain...and I really wish they would up the exp based on level (like Crazy Stone).

    But I kinda cheat...WQ = 15-20min max....TeleStones b:dirty

    I only teleport when I can get to the next port from where I am. Otherwise ---> the stones b:pleased

    Worse for me is def. 11-15... with 16-20 coming in closely. I hate Misfortune, I just do.

    I kill time by playing other games (console, handheld) and by chatting with faction or recruiting. Or by going AFK during long stretches.

    The worst parts are north east of arch and the dreaming cloud/dream weaver area. There aren't really any cheap teleports to go around there, and things are just far enough apart to be a pain.

    The first five easily. The rest are tolerable because you're at least having direction when you fly. The first five start out as all over the place and are the worst stops in terms of trying to save time. The only occasion I ever use teleports would be if I'm on book 30 and am in a rush, so I teleport to 1000 Streams from South Arco.

    Much cheaper to teleport to Lost and cuts about half the time out. Especially if you run to 30 from there on a mount.

    Why? For under 10k you can cut half the travel time out of WQ. If you figure that saves you 30 minutes... you can more than make the 10k back by killing mobs for that time.

    By having no time, I mean, barely enough time to get to 1000 Streams via teleport, fly quickly to book 30 stop, cube, and back to arco, and still wind up late. This actually happened last night, which is maybe the 3rd time I've ever done it. Was invited early to a BH squad and was doing crusade orders along my stops, would have missed our squad entirely (we don't waste time) if I had went to COTL and flew to streams. Any other time, though, when I use teleporting (but not in WQ) I have that same cost effective mentality. :)

    If you gets books 1-4, the cost to teleport to all of them is about 5K. 5K versus the time it would take to fly/ride to those 4 stops. I don't understand why you wouldn't teleport to those first 4 books. The only reason I wouldn't is if I went from 2->4. Village of Brutes is a quick ride/flight from Broken Bridge.

    I always teleport from South Arch to 1K Streams. Since I get a free teleport back to Arch from the Pup, I'm only paying 4k each way. That's worth it to me even over teleporting to Lost and flying/riding the rest of the way.

    I teleport 1-5. if I skip 5 I take the pup back to arch. I usually fly the rest, if I know I'm not going to finish it before work I'll use my factions free teleport to 11 and fly everything else aside from running on mount 15-16 if need be. If I'm not doing anything else I'll run from 22/23 to 29 as well, then hop the free tp to the top left of the map and run on mount down to 30, then free pup back

    WQ isn't something I mind too much. I just afk fly, point and click every 5 minutes and watch youtube. Nice break and free exp, what more could you want?
