TOPIC: How to play a level 5 character?

How to play a level 5 character? 5 months 2 weeks ago #1

Hi - I'm new to the forums, but I've played True Dungeon for the last several GenCons. I know there are many tokens that can level up your character, but I haven't been able to find a list or how to do so. Hoping someone can direct me to the proper place to find these resources.
Is there a way to just buy a token? Are they account locked? Are they 1 use only? Where do I find this kind of information?

It's token driven.

There are multiple things missing from there.

Might Set Bonus, Charming Trio Set Bonus. Deadshot Set Bonus, other Eldritch tokens.

Tokendb has the information you're looking for:

The list of level boosters:
tokendb.com/Misc/level-increase/

Additionally there are 4 sets that boost level. The list of sets can be found here:
truedungeon.com/sets
Or in the players handbook here:
truedungeon.com/files/PHB.pdf

Only one of the level boosters are 1 use only - the folio of might. All the others are equip-able.

Just one thing to add to the correct answers above--the Deadshot Set is the only UR set granting +1 character level that's still in print. (Meaning you could buy it as Pick Your Purple URs in an token order from TD.) Everything else is Out of Print. However, that doesn't mean you can't acquire it/them. There are numerous resellers here on the forums (see the Token Stores, Token Auctions, and Token Needs and Offers threads) and a couple of major token selling websites where you can buy almost any token. Feel free to shop around for the best price/what suits your needs.

If you only play once or twice a year, picking up a couple of Folios of Might could be the way to go. (They're consumable, meaning they are one use and you turn it in at the beginning of the run, but they will get the job done for not a lot of money.) There are a couple of relatively inexpensive URs that give +1 Level but have a drawback, like Cook's Hat, Ring of Fateful Heroism, and Medallion of Heroism. If you want one token that gives you +1 Level with no drawbacks, you're looking at a relic (Ring of Heroism or Charm of Heroism), legendary (Totem of Heroism, which is a new-ish token and can be acquired either by collecting 40 unique tokens, or buying from someone who made/drew one, but FYI, it is so new that the price is hard to pin down), or going fully down the rabbit hole and acquiring at least two Eldritch items (big $$$--Rod of Seven Parts, Skull of Cavadar, Kilt of Dungeonbane, Boots of Four Winds, and Supreme Ring of Elemental Command).

I was going to help out but I can only second all of the advice already given.
My online token shop: www.tdtavern.com

We buy, sell, and trade True Dungeon tokens. We also have a convenient consignment program where you can sell your own tokens.

Thank you for the helpful advice, especially BeLinda for some of the cost effective ways to do this. My husband and I only play at GenCon each year and do each of the modules available when possible. I've felt like I've let a few groups down, or myself by not having the stats to help play at a higher level. I was really looking for something that would just cost a few bucks extra to get this and the Folios seem like they might be the way to do it. I know TD is not a cheap hobby, but I don't think I can justify spending hundreds of dollars extra when we really only play pretty casually.

Thank you again!

Me neither. I spend somewhere in the $30-50 range on tokens most years, but I've been playing for enough years that that adds up, especially when you add in the treasure pulls and free 10-packs you get with each run. (I play at both Gen Con and Gamehole Con, so probably a total of ~5 runs per year.)

I was playing at 4th level until last year, when I did a Virtual True Dungeon run and my free 10-pack was the 1-in-100 that has a random Ultra Rare inside. I traded that away for a Cook's Hat on these forums, and now I'm 5th level.

It wasn't *that* big of a deal for me, but then again I usually play Ranger, so 5th level just means "more stats and you get to heal somebody for 5 points once in the dungeon". For caster classes especially, 5th level can mean a lot more.

1) you’re not letting anyone down playing 4th level. Ever.


Just wanna reemphasize this part. Well said Leguinian.

For those who may not know, "TE" stands for Treasure Enhancer. These are tokens that bestow additional treasure pulls at the end of your adventure.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

Note that any difficulty other than normal has to be a unanimous decision.

Please, please, PLEASE don't feel pressure to play a different level.

Anyone who doesn’t control the whole run knows what they signed up for.

Echo what has been said before. Decided to put in a plug for VTD (Virtual True Dungeon) also. A lot of players can loan you things virtually ahead of time. This will let you get accustomed to tokens you may be thinking about purchasing. It also allows you to try things for your class. There is a free app for VTD that comes in handy to put your builds on when you play in person. The app makes it easier for the coaches to get the party card ready. NOTE: You can only borrow tokens from people who are on the virtual run with you.

Also, I repeat the part about not being pressured to play at a higher level. Do feel like you are letting people down if you do not want to play a more difficult level.
