I’m not sure why but the past few weeks have been unusual for me in concerning my week and weekend quest runs. I usually have a a set schedule for both but with a lot of real life events happening at work and at home, some of that schedule has needed to be “tweaked”. Well this past weekend wasn’t any exception to that. As I didn’t get a chance to play any at all on Saturday 😦 but I still had some on Saturday as my wife and I spent the majority of the day with her family :).
With that said, my weekend runs did start with my typical Friday morning slayer run. I was actually scheduled to play Erdrique (Level 12 Druid) that morning and he is currently working on the Red Fens Wilderness Area. So I took Erdrique around the Red Fens for about 20 minutes or so and then logged out to head to work. When I got back from work, my planned afternoon run was to take Erdrique through the Keeper’s Sanctuary. I was glad I had my detect secret door goggles with me because this quest has a lot of secret doors!! I didn’t have any issues running the quest on elite with Erdrique. I logged for a while and then logged back later that night I took Erdrique through the next set of quests for the Ruins of Threnal. I took Erdrique through Escort the Expedition, Hold for Reinforcements, and The Missing Expedition all on elite. Hold for Reinforcements was challenging because I only had my hireling, my pet (Fang), and my summons to protect Coyle but after two attempts I was able to keep his sorry hide alive :)!! I then logged out for the night.
I logged back on with Sludgge (Level 20 Rogue/Shadowdancer) on Sunday. Sludgge is currently working on the House Phairlan Carnival Series and as a result he needed to run Partycrashers and The Snitch. Hellsbain and Khameltwo joined me shortly after I logged on and we headed into Partycrashers on Epic Normal (I’m still uncomfortable with Sludgge trying anything harder). I hadn’t put a group up in the looking for more panel in awhile so I listed the Partycrashers run as a group and in progress and we headed on in. We didn’t have any problems at all. We didn’t get all of the ruins to turn off the spawning traps so we took the route through the theater and I had some fun watching Hellsbain and Khameltwo (both are Bladeforged) try to jump to higher altar, but eventually they did and we headed forward. Between myself, Khamel, and Hell we were able to take out the poison master, the spell master, and the Cabal troupe and watch as Cyan took out the last guy at the end :). Hell called it a night after than but I and Khameltwo headed over to The Snitch and this time I picked up two others in my looking for more group. They joined us when we were about a third of the way through the quest and helped us take out the named rust monster and the last fight. Both runs went smoothly!! After that run, I had to call it a night.
So, although I didn’t get any runs in on Saturday, the weekend was still active :). I’m glad I got some more play time in for Sludgge but he really needs a gear re-work. In time!! Just need to tell myself to be patient. Well, thanks for reading everybody and happy questing!!
