I was told not to pass level 47 if I was going to do the trails. But, one day this LM that gave 300% game along and I couldn't help myself. It was awesome turning in quests that gave me 10k exp or even 17k. I got to level 46 in no time and realized a little to late that I need to get my butt to isle of revelation. I did research and started just doing important quests. Got to ior and did the long quest chains to get me into the trails. I got into the the first 3 trials at level 47, after doing them, I had to turn in a few quests and it dinged me. I was now 48.
I went back in, with buffs, pots, everything I could think of. I was an alchemist so I had me a good amount of things I could use. I failed so many times. The poison ticked off at 27k per second and even with being able to use my patronage once, my pots couldn't keep up with it. Nor could me using my other patronage skill that gave the hp and mana. I probably could have passed that one with some experiment, better timing. But the other trails, there was no way I was going to be able to do them. All the mobs, the red ring, I could barely damage them. It was like I was trying to fight a red ring out in the field.
The red rings I could do, I ended up running out of mana, I wasn't hurting him.
My gears consisted of Kirah's respected gears, I had my daily blessings on, and a luck pot I had on me. I had runes that where 766/663. (I ran out of money on that 3, so sue me.)
The bottom line here is. I have been told SO many times, do them at 46. People cry and whine for those LMs but at the same time they don't realize how they are hurting themselves. The Devs designed this game to work a certain way for a reason, and one of those reasons is these trials.
So the best thing you can do to help yourself, is do your research, do your important quests to open up the trials and make sure you STAY at 46 or 47. I now have to wait until I get better gear after I hit 51 to even try them which is what most of my guidies do anyways.
I am really glad that at one point, they made it to where these trails where not required to move on in the game. I do believe there are some worlds attached to it but at least now I can level on and gain better gear to trail them again in the future.
