Well this past weekend was dominated by my runs with Erdrique as he moved through some of the lower level quests in the Marketplace and Harbor. However, my weekend runs started with Containment on Friday morning prior to work. I was scheduled to take Containment (Level 2 Cleric) into the Cerulean Hills for the first time to do some explorers, slayers, and rare encounters. After taking Containment exploring throughout the Hills for about 20 minutes I logged out to head to work. After work, I logged back on with Erdrique and knocked out the next quest in the chain of the Catacombs: The Patriarch’s Crypt. I had to log Erdrique out shortly after that to make dinner and to spend some time with my wife. I logged back on Friday night with Erdrique and finished up the Catacombs (finally, lol, seemed to drag on forever) and took Where there’s Smoke, The Sacred Helm, Red Fang, some Waterworks slayers and the firs quest of the Waterworks chain: The Kobold’s Den: Clan Gnashtooth. I ran into some difficulties in Where there’s Smoke with some of the orcs and actually got killed by one of the poison traps in Redfang. Nothing like a good dose of poison to humble you. After I completed those runs I got a little tired of running some of the lower level quests and decided to work on some inventory management. I think I came up with a new system that I think might work for me concerning inventory but it will take some time to get set up. But once it is set up, I think it will make my life so much easier…we’ll see. After that, I logged out for the night.

I logged back on Saturday night where I grouped with Okhamel. Okhamel hadn’t started to work on Waterworks yet, so we tackled The Kobold’s Den: Clan Gnashtooth and The Kobold’s Den: Rescuing Arlos. I then suggested that we run the first two quests of the Assault on Splinterskull chain because those quests are also level 3 and I didn’t want to move past them while we were continuing our elite bravery bonus streak. So we then tackled the Tangleroot explorer area as well as First Strike and The Hobgoblin’s Captives. After that, I had gained enough experience to hit level 5 (I had that level banked and was forced to level) and spent a chunk of time upgrading my gear via Cannith Crafting and purchases from the Auction house. Once I got that done, we headed off to Kobold Assault and had a fun time laying waste to kobold masses and their trog leader . Okhamel and I then logged out for the night.

On Sunday night, I did a change of pace compared to Friday and Saturday. I was scheduled to bring in Wapoyei (Level 22 Cleric/Exalted Angel) and to finish up the Sentinel Series on Epic Normal. Okhamel was on once again, patiently waiting for me, and he logged out and back on with Friedrice (Level 22 Ranger/Shiradi Champion) and we headed into the quest, The Tide Turns. We had a good time in the Sentinel Tower taking on Captain Tew and his Blood Tide pirates. We didn’t suffer any unusual issues or problems, which is always a good thing. When we finished, Friedrice received enough experience to level. At that point it was midnight on a Sunday and I needed to call it a night to get some sleep for work on Monday.

Not a bad weekend at all, got Erdrique another level and am slowly making my way through his druid life. Also knocked out another epic quest which felt good. I hope everybody else had a good weekend and thank you for reading!! Happy Hunting everybody!!
