I managed to complete Crusade to Faydwer with suz yesterday. Onto Knights in the Round and the dreaded 50 statues… lol I never tried very hard with this quest line at the time, I think mainly because I was pretty annoyed that there was no Bow reward and it was a huge amount of effort for a kinda bleh reward. I thought I’d pick it up now for AA reasons plus I was part way through it and I’m trying to clear out my Journal. I only have space for 8 quests which is quite tight especially as I still have the majority of the Moors timeline to do. I’m just so grateful you now get AA for grey quests.
I took Saraya (inq) out for a spin in the Fens yesterday trying to get her to level 75 so she can start picking up the single shard missions. She needed about 30% and I managed to get her to 11% to level. It didn’t go very well at all really, I kept dying, got very fed up and then died some more…. so I was very grateful that I could switch to suz for a Veksar run (it being the double shard mission). Well, tbh, I wasn’t really in the mood for levelling saraya last night – I was adventuring with her because I felt I SHOULD get her to 75 rather than playing her cos I wanted to… Lesson learnt I suppose.
Anyways, we had a guild group run into Veksar. We hadn’t really been in this zone before so it was all new and shiny 🙂 Myself, Dimzad (zerker), Kalyyn (temp) and Emaimee (warden) had got part way through as a group of 4 before the TSO expansion but none of us had ventured in since. So the 4 of us plus Killians (SK) and Yharlie (illy) jumped into the icky stinky sewer waters of Veksar ready to kick some yha lei butt. Its a really fun zone with a few quests (yep AA’s are really on my mind at the mo lol). The first named went down nice and easy and we moved onto the next named. I forget his name but this was very fun – making a mini-me golem to fight the big nasty epic golem – this named also went down nice and easy with lots of giggles from us (well I expect the guys might like me to say that they laughed in a more masculine way- chortled?! – but Ema and I definitely giggled ;)) Updated our page quest and went on through to Cribblekeep (yes I remember his name…) Bah what a git! It was getting pretty late (coming up to midnight and poor Killians is an hr ahead of us) and we just couldn’t get a strat to work… We wiped so many times I began to think I was a dishcloth lol Well actually when he hit me, I went down so fast I think my armour may have been made of a scrappy old dishcloth 😛 We’re going back in tonight after helping some guildies with their epics. I think going in with fresh heads will do the trick – we did end up ‘cheating’ and looking up a strat on him and I think we just need to perfect that and he’ll be dead.
Kalyyn has changed his look and now is looking very priestly and pure 😛 – his new nickname is Saint Kal. Here’s a screenie of Saint Kal giving us a sermon (well telling us the cheaty strat)
