Well, this past weekend I surprised myself. I didn’t plan on running a whole lot in the Crystal Cove, although I did plan on running some out there because it is a special event that doesn’t come along all that often, but I wound up running it much more than I thought. Then again, dropping the number of map piece turn-ins to 500 help to make that happen. In any case I ran the Crystal Cove five times over the weekend. However, my weekend runs didn’t actually start inside the Crystal Cove.
My weekend runs started with my typical morning slayer runs on Friday. I brought on a character on my premium account, Suppply (Level 8 Paladin), and took him out into Three Barrel Cove to continue on his march of dominance of the local pirates. That afternoon, I brought on Erdrique (Level 6 Monk) and completed the Sharn Syndicate series by finishing the quest Come Out and Slay. I then took Erdrique out into Irestone Inlet and took on Yar-yar and his crew. I then took Erdrique back into the Waterworks Slayer area and finished that zone. On Friday night, I started out in the Smuggler’s Rest and then did a few runs in the Crystal Cove. I had some help from Luchog and from Leefist as we ran around collecting map pieces and doubloons. I then took Erdrique out into Tangleroot Gorge and started the Assault on Splinterskull chain. I completed the first two quests in the chain: First Strike and the Hobgoblin’s Captives. I then headed to the Marketplace and took on the quest Red Fang. I then completed one more run in the Crystal Cove before I called it a night.
On Saturday, I did some slayers in the Tangleroot Gorge slayer area and then I did a run through the Crystal Cove. Later that night, I took Erdrique into the Cerulean Hills and completed the quest The Captives. I then made my way back to the Marketplace and into the Steam Tunnels to do the quest The Sacred Helm. I then took Erdrique into one of the Cannith Challenges and ran the challenge: Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door. I then took him back out to Smuggler’s Rest for another run in the Crystal Cove and then ended the night with some slayer runs in Tangleroot Gorge.
Sunday was a relatively light gaming session. I was scheduled to log in with Crawlller (Level 6 Ranger), another one of my premium account characters. The first thing I wanted to do was to do some quick slayer runs with him in Tangleroot Gorge. I entered the explorer area and I was later joined by Xahtep, a reader of my blog . We blasted through the explorer zone twice and Crawlller wound up reaching over 750 slayers and he received enough experience to hit level 6. Xahtep then had to log but I just wanted to pass along that I enjoyed his help!! After the turns through Tangleroot, I took Crawlller out into the Cerulean Hills and ran the quest Where There’s Smoke on Hard. I then took Crawlller into House Cannith and got his daily challenge token and ran through the challenge Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door. By the time I finished the run, it was time to head off to bed.
So, the weekend runs were primarily lower level runs, with a decent about of Crystal Cove activity splayed throughout the weekend. Not my most productive weekend but it was still a fun weekend . I hope everybody else had a nice weekend as well!! Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
