Last week’s quest runs started not with questing in DDO but instead in Neverwinter Nights II instead. This was because DDO was undergoing its period of maintenance. So I took Ragnar (Level 5 Spirit Shaman) and his party into the town of Highcliff to gather information about lizard man blockade that is preventing all ships from leaving the harbor in Highcliff. After running around the town for a little while and picking up some side quests I needed to head out and go to work. Once, I got back home from work, I took Hamllin (Level 9 Fighter) into Tangleroot Gorge and then I logged on with Erdrique (Level 13 Druid) and I took him into the Restless Isles and ran the Slayers of the Shrieking Mines. After that run I logged out for a little while and logged back in that night but only worked on character maintenance as I was also playing our weekly digital table top game.
On Tuesday morning, I was scheduled to take Suppply (Level 8 Paladin) into Three Barrel Cove. I ran around out there and collected some more slayers prior to work. Shortly later I logged out and headed off to work. Once I got home, I took a little advantage of my wife having to work a later shift than normal and logged on with Hamllin who took on Gwylan’s Stand on elite and then I logged on with Garrrin (Level 21 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild) and took him into the final quest of the Sentinel Series, The Tide Turns on Epic Normal. After a quick dinner break, I then logged on with Cantlin (Level 11 Sorcerer) who is still working on his level 6 quests. So I took him into another one of the “oldie by goodie” quests, Redwillow’s Ruins. I had time taking Cantlin through those jungles and ruins and burning up the trolls, ogres, bugbears, scorpions, and hobgoblins. After taking out the named hill giant at the end of the quest, I logged out for the night.
Wednesday I was scheduled to take Wapoyei (Level 22 Cleric/Exalted Angel) into the High Road to deal with the multitude of half-orcs and Netherese agents. After traversing the High Road for a little while I headed out to work. My afternoon questing session was dominated withe Erdrique running through some Red Fens slayers and then heading out the Sands of Menechtarun for the first time on this life and taking on the Tomb of the Physician. I always enjoy running around the desert and had a fun time taking on the mummies and other undead forces in the Tomb of the Physician. I logged out after that run but logged back on later that night with Rimuldar (Level 22 Wizard/Magister) and took him into the desert as well to run the Tomb of the Wizard-King on epic normal. This was my first attempt at the Tomb of the Wizard King on epic difficulty and I had a great time running it. After that run, I logged out and called it a night.
Thursday started out with a slayer run into the Ruins of Gianthold with Sludgge (Level 20 Rogue). I took Sludgge around the heroic version of the Gianthold landscape and had some fun toying around with some of the Stormfist. Later than afternoon, I logged on with Hamllin and ventured into Three Barrel Cove and took on the Scondrel’s Run on elite. Hamllin had no problem dealing with the minotaurs and scorpions that are prevalent throughout that quest. My wife was off on Thursday so we switched our data night from Wednesday to Thursday this week so after my run through Three Barrel Cove and the Scondrel’s Run I called it a night.
All in all, it wasn’t a bad week’s worth of questing at all. I was actually on a little more than normal because of my wife’s work schedule. I hope everybody else had a nice set of runs last week. Thanks for reading and happy hunting everybody!!
