A Busy Week of Questing, September 22th to 25th

This week was quite a busy week for me and questing in DDO.  It all started with some slayer runs on Monday morning with my half-orc Berann (Barbarian Level 7) through the Waterworks slayer area prior to heading out to work.  When I got back home from work and before making dinner, I took Erdrique (Level 18 Druid) into the quest In the Flesh.  Now, with Erdrique, I have run every quest on elite.  I broke this trend concerning this particular quest.  The end is notoriously difficult on elite and because Erdrique was Level 18 his bravery streak wasn’t affected by this.  So I ran it on normal instead and still netted nearly 20k experience out of it.  Later that night, I logged on with Crawlller (Level 5 Ranger) and with some help from a fellow guildy, Grabthar, I was able to run The Kobold’s New Ringleader, Information is Key, Haverdasher, Garrison’s Missing Pack, and Durk’s Got a Secret all on elite.  This was extremely beneficial to Crawlller because he is on my premium account, so this saved me from having to run them on normal, hard, and then on elite.  I also need to point out that I was also doing my weekly digital PNP group so Grabthar was also being very patient with many “breaks”.  After those sets of runs, I called it a night.

On Tuesday, I took Rimuldar (Level 21 Wizard/Magister) out into the Vale of Twilight for some slayers prior to work.  Although he is well over level for the Vale, I still have an itch to finish those slayers out there.  Later that afternoon I logged on Hamllin and took him out into the wilds of Sorrowdusk Isle  to run the first two quests of the Cult of the Six story arc: The Temple Outpost-The Captives of the Cult and The Temple Outpost-The Libram of the Six.  I had also put this particular quest up in the LFM panel and had one other come and join me for some quick and smooth runs.  I logged out after completing the The Libram of the Six but logged back on later that night with Larrs (Level 20 Bard/Fatesinger) into the quests Thorn and Paw and The Druid’s Curse.  I ran these quests on heroic normal, level 17 quests, so that I could learn them a little bit more as I haven’t played some very much yet.  I had a fun time in Thorn and Paw and wrote about it here.  After those runs and completing that story arc I called it a night.

Wednesday, as usual, was a short night because it was date night.  However, I did start the day by logging in with Garrrin (Level 21 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild) and taking him into the Ruins of Gianthold (Heroic) for some easy and relaxing slayers in the Stormeye encampment. After work, I logged on with Erdrique and took him into the Lords of Dust on elite.  Using the spells earthquake, firewall, creeping cold (regular and greater), and snowslide I was able to make quick work out of most of the enemies.  However, I still ran into some problems with Gnomen and the drow Karas at the end but I did pull it off :).  I logged out happy that I was able to make my way through their with minimal issues.

I logged on with  Stoorage (Level 10 Fighter) on Thursday morning and took him out into Sorrowdusk Isle for the morning slayer runs.  He is just starting that area so he wracked up some quick experience out there.  That afternoon I brought on Hamllin and took him into Hold for Reinforcements, the last quest in Threnal East.  I thought I was going to have a tough time keeping Coyle alive in there but I had summoned two hirelings (a cleric and a wizard) and actually had little problems with the quest.  I would intimidate every once in awhile and set the cleric to guard Coyle and things worked out well.  Hammy is now set for the Southern Expedition.  After that run I logged out for a little while and then I brought on Harrgon (Level 10 Favored Soul).  I took him out into Three Barrel Cove and ran the quests Ghost of a Chance and The Legend of Two-Toed Tobias.  I was quite pleased with the those run as I needed nearly 30 K from those two runs and that wasn’t involving any bravery bonus experience because he was level 10 and the quests are level 7 on elite.  So nice runs indeed!!

The week overall was quite active for me.  This weekend I’m hoping for the same as I plan on running Erdrique through a number of quests to get him closer to level 20.  I hope everybody else had a good week and will have a good weekend!!  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
