It was a Saga Filled Weekend, September 5th to 7th

My questing runs over this past weekend was dominated by Erdrique (Level 17 Druid) who I took through primarily the quests in Gianthold.  However, prior to that I was scheduled to take Erdrique into the Sands of Menechtarun (aka, the Desert) for my Friday morning slayer runs prior to heading to the office.  My afternoon run, prior to dinner, was also with Erdrique, who I took through the Maze of Madness.  Later that night, I took Erdrique back out in the Desert to collect some more slayers and to find my last rare encounter and then I headed back to Gianthold to take on the quest A Cabal for One.  After collecting some more slayers in the Desert and in the Gianthold I then logged out for the night.

On Saturday, I logged back on with Erdrique and headed back into the Desert as I was still hunting down my last rare encounter (Thumok the Mad).  I then headed back out into the Gianthold and completed Madstone Crater, Prison of the Planes, and the Gianthold Tor all on elite.  I didn’t really run into any snags at all with any of the quests.  Although I did lose my cleric hireling a few times in the Tor as she seemed to gain a large amount of aggro for whatever reason.  However, the real highlight of these runs was that I completed the Wastes of Gianthold (Heroic) Saga and that was my first saga completion !! :).  After that, I logged out for the night.

I didn’t log in on Sunday until relatively late.  I was scheduled to play with Lorrikk (Level 11 Montk) and I took him out into the Pit.   This was the first time I took Lorrikk into the Pit and I had a fun time in there with him.  His evasion helped him immensely in the quest, especially in the lightning room where you need to throw the levers to power up the back up generator or whatever is.  On elite, the quest was level 9, but even with that I still wound up getting well over 20,000 experience for Lorrikk, however it did take me over an hour to complete.  I did run into some issues while running the Pit, but these issues were centered around latency and lag issues, and now quest issues.  Overall, it was a nice run :).

So the highlight of this past weekend really was my completion of my first saga.  I had a fun time knocking those quests out and I look forward to completing more of them!!  Thanks for reading everybody and I hope everybody else had a fun weekend :).  Now its time to get into DDO and to go hunting!!
