This past weekend was a very strong weekend of questing for me, at least in terms of knocking out high experience awarding quests. I was traveling during Friday, December 26th from North Carolina to Florida and didn’t get any play time :(. So my questing activities didn’t start until Saturday.
I devoted the entire weekend to questing with Erdrique (Level 12 Monk) to take advantage of the 10% experience bonus and the additional 10% experience VIP bonus. To start out the questing I took Erdrique out into Sorrowdusk Isle and completed the rest of the slayers and rares out in that zone. After I completed that zone, I then moved off to finish up the Ruins of Threnal. I then took on and completed the quests of the Abandoned Excavation (The Missing Expedition, Entering the Gate Chamber, The Gate Chamber) and then I completed the Threnal Arena and the Giant Caves (The Giants Lieutenants, The Giants’ Lair, The Giants’ Supplies). After completing all of Threnal I then moved off and head on to The Pit. However, before I did that I leveled up from 11 to 12. I then blasted through Pit and still earned well over 36,000 experience for the run :). Once I completed the Pit, I then headed off to the Tomb of the Shadow Guard and completed it on elite. After the run through the Tomb of the Shadow Guard, I called it a night.
On Sunday, I continued through the Shadow Tomb series of quests. Before I did that however, I went to the Cannith Crafting Hall and decided to create some ghost touch of pure good handwraps because I was having a number of annoying issues in the Tomb of the Shadow Guard from incorporeality misses. After I created the new handwraps, I head pack out to the Necropolis and hit up the Tomb of the Shadow King and Tomb of the Shadow Knight. Once I completed these two quests, I was then able to gain access to The Shadow Crypt and I worked my way through that shifting maze to gain gears to finally take on Nerezza. The Shadow Crypt netted me over 50,000 experience :).
At that point, I called it a night. So even though I missed a day of questing because of traveling issues, I still wracked up quite a bit of experience over the weekend. I still plan on focusing on Erdrique during the week as well to continue to take advantage of the experience bonus that is currently active and to take advantage of my time off of work before things head back to normal. Thank you for reading and happy hunting!!
