Default Do People Usually do AoM content in Normal or Epic

Hi I'm just wondering if people do all content clear in all difficulties: normal, epic, and legendary?

Alternatively do people skip some content in normal and/or epic and if so could you describe what to skip (and thereby what to make sure to do)?

It's all about the reputation. Augements are important, therefore doing AoM is very important, if you have +100% bonus reputation, you can achieve revered status after two runs.

I personally do AoM all the time because I like it more than the vanilla game.

I tend to skip most of AoM until Epic.

I like to have all of my resistances in order, first.

That, and having a lvl 65 set on help a lot.

Up until 65, I'll run the Lokkar set for the exp boost.

But I'll run Lokkar through lvl 100 if I'm running a 40-Soldier build

I do it on all difficulties. I'm not one for doing bounties to gain rep so running through AoM helps with that. Plus I hate skipping content.

In normal (veteran) i usually do all including map exploration.
In epic i run to complete almost every quest and shrine, ignoring map exploration and virtually all non-essential ennemies. Its possible do epic in 1 day. empirically tested
Until level 94 (reached in legendary) i use XP potions all the time

Plus you're missing out on 5 shrines if you skip AoM in Normal.

A good trick I used to do was check the bounty table to see if any available quests were conveniently placed 'along the way' to my primary objective.

For example, if I'm about to go slap cronley silly, an ideal bounty would be kill 10x of his ascended clowns.

Really speeds up the leveling process.

I do AoM on all difficulties - as already mentioned having the rep in place to get the right resistance augments by the time you hit ultimate is huge. Also that way if I need to craft something requiring aetherial missives/wendigo spirits/ugdenbloom I already have a little stockpile by ultimate.

Yeah, I always forget to check for those. But then I don't want to level too quickly, otherwise I'll become demotivated when I hit L100 again. Just running quests atm so I don't reach it too soon.
