Catching Up Over the Weekend, Questing December 12th to December 14th

As I mentioned in this blog article last week was an off week, so I used the weekend to try to catch up on my play schedule.  However, I started the weekend off with my typical slayer run on Friday morning, although it was later on in the morning as I was still recovering from being sick on Thursday night.  I took a character from my premium account, Crawlller (Level 6 Ranger) out into the hoboglin rich forests of Tangleroot Gorge to gather up some slayers and rare encounters.  For my mid-day run on Friday, I took Hamllin (Level 13 Fighter) into the lair of Whisperdoom and completed the quest The Spawn of Whisperdoom on elite and had my first look at the monster champions.  Later that night, I brought on Kanndar (Level 11 Paladin), who I was originally scheduled to play on Monday, and took him through Storm the Beaches on elite.  After I completed that run, I then logged on Charlock (Level 13 Fighter) and took him through Stormcleave Outpost, which I was supposed to do Thursday when I was sick.  At that point I was caught back up, so then I brought on my main character Erdrique (Level 10 Monk) and took him through Free Delera to continue the Delera’s Graveryard story arc.  Although I encountered a plethora of monster champions, I completed all of these quests without any issues.

On Saturday, I logged on relatively early to take advantage of my wife having to work during the day and because I really wanted to finish the Delera’s Tomb chain, so I then completed Thrall of the Necromancer on elite with Erdrique and finished that chain.  Later that night I brought Erdrique back on and worked on completing the Grey Moon Waning Story arc.  I went ahead and knocked out The Iron Mines: Justice for Grust, The Grey Moon’s Den: The Trollish Scourge, and The Grey Moon’s Den: Extermination.  I didn’t run into any issues here and advanced to the Cult of the Six Story arc.  I then decided to run some of the quests in the Red Fens.  As I headed out there, I went to the quest The Last Stand.  This was the first quest I ran into that caused me some issues with Erdrique in quite some time.  However, the issues were more surrounded on issues wit my hireling.  For some reason, the hireling refused to heal themselves and promptly got killed.  I tried it twice and then realized that I have way to many level eight and lower quests to complete before I try to tackle to many of the level 9 quests.  So I then moved off to complete the Necro I series by finishing up the night with The Blood Crypt on elite having no problems in there.

Sunday, I was scheduled to take Erdrique out to do some more hunting.  This time I was scheduled to run Spies in the House.  Generally I have out leveled the “elite” streak range by the time it get to this quest, but the stars seemed to align just right this time.  I was joined up with Khameltoe and we went ahead to take on the Blood Road.  Although I did get killed twice, overall the quest wasn’t much of a problem.  I died once from an unknown source, a necromancer killed me with some type of bludgeon damage, I’m still not sure what happened there.  The second time I died I was blown onto the electrified floor on the mephit level when I thought the blower jets were turned off….oops, lol.  But besides those, the quest was a success gaining us well over 30,000 experience with the elite streak.  After that run, Khamel and I decided to run a Cannith Challenge, Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door on Level 10.  We took out the succubus and blackguard before our time ran out.

So, unlike the week prior, the weekend was quite productive and fun .  I ran into some issues with The Last Stand but I will knock it out soon (I promise my revenge!).  It was a good weekend and hope everybody else had a nice weekend as well.  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
