This past weekend was full of questing :). I kicked things off by taking Crawlller (Level 6 Ranger) out into the Tangleroot Gorge for some relatively swift slayer runs prior to work on Friday morning. I did miss my afternoon run, as my wife and I went out to eat for dinner on Friday afternoon but I made it up back on up on later that night. I logged on with Erdrique (Level 15 Rogue) and joined up with Khamels and Hellbanisher. We then made our way over to the Necropolis to take on the Tomb of the Tormented, Tomb of the Forbidden, Tomb of the Blighted, and Tomb of the Unhallowed. We started out with the most annoying of the four quests, Tomb of the Tormented. As I was moving a rat through the second maze, Hellbanisher lost connect and later I got an out-of-game message from him saying that his house had lost power. So Khamels and I continued and we finished up the four flagging quest for the Cursed Crypt, which is planned to be taking on next Friday. After we completed those quests I hit level 15 with Erdrique and then leveled up after which I called it a night.

I got on a little earlier than normal on Saturday night because my wife was out babysitting for a friend. I logged on with Erdrique and I took him out into the Red Fens for his turn at acquiring the slayers out there. I complete one circuit out in those bogs and then realized that I needed to upgrade my Spare Hand and Ring of the Stalker and headed off to the do some Cannith Challenges. I then ran through Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Picture Portals. After a run through Dr. Rushmore’s mansion, I then went back out to the Red Fens and that was when a few other Crawlers logged on. Gutterat and Khamels logged in and after a little bit of guild chatting, we decided to run the Web of Chaos Chain on epic hard. Gutterat hadn’t played through this particular quest line yet since he had returned to the game, although he had run a number of the quests out in Eveningstar. So Gutterat switched to his Shadar-kai, Lethalix (Level 20) and Khamels switched to his level 22 ranger, Friedrice. I then logged out and brought on Garrrin (Level 22 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild) and we headed off to Lords of Dust. We rolled through Lords of Dust on epic hard and had some watching Lethalix figure out where the taps were. Servants of the Overlord went pretty well too, as I was expecting on having some trouble in there. However, I was pleasantly surprised as we moved through the drow, spiders, and raksashas will little problems. The Spinnter of Shadows took us a little longer as we had to wait for the spiders to spawn who drop the crystals to relight the torches, but overall it wasn’t a problem either. The last quest, Beyond the Rift, was also relatively easy, and I was glad to have Lethalix with us to disarm the numerous spell wards. After we made our way through the Rift and back to Evenigstar to get our rewards, I then called it a night. It was a good night and I was glad to take Lethalix through some quests he hadn’t seen before.

Sunday was relatively quiet compared to Friday and Saturday but still quite active. I logged on with Charlock (Level 14 Fighter) and decided to take him into the Ruins of Threnal where I completed the Threnal Arena. I was little embarrassed to get destroyed by the last beholder but I got my revenge when I came back and took him down. I then joined up with Khamels and we headed off for the Eastern Excavation and completed the quests: The Library of Threnal, Escort the Expedition, and Hold for Reinforcements. After we completed Threnal East we decided to head over to Ataraxia’s Haven and to complete the quest Reclamation. After we convinced the Duergar to leave the mineshaft, I logged out and called it a night.

So, definitely a nice set of quests this past weekend and little bit of a shift in my questing where I didn’t stay with Erdrique for the majority of the time But it was good to group up with Lethalix. Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
