Questing into the New Year, Quest Runs December 29th to January 1st

Over the holiday vacation I did everything I could to take advantage of the 10% Experience boost and the additional 10% Experience VIP boost by running a number of quests with Erdrique (Level 14 Monk).  However, since I was on vacation my questing activities were out of the box than my typical morning slayer, afternoon quest after work, and then my nightly questing during the week.  On Monday, I still needed a few level 8 quests to complete so I took Erdrique into the Caverns of Korrmar first and took care of all of the undead and outsiders found in this House Kundarak dig site having little issues.  I then took Erdrique over to House Jorasco to take on more undead and Xoriat zealots in the Path to Madness to Xorian Cipher.  I did get a little frustrated while running the Xorian Cipher when I was disconnected just before I entered the final fight.  I did everything I could to get back into the server but the game had already ported me to House Jorasco.  Needless to say I headed back inside and completed it.  To complete it I brought with me a few hirelings.  I then moved over to House Phiarlan to do the Faithful Departed.  I guess the theme of dealing with more drow and undead was just something I wanted to continmue :).  In either case, I completed it with little problems on elite.

Later on Monday night, I joined with my friends to do our digital table top session.  While we were struggling with some formatting and connection issues with a new version of Maptool, I took the downtime to run the Tharashk Arena.  Then after we finished our session, I continued in the VON series and took Erdrique into The Prisoner, the Gateway to Khyber, The Jungle of Khyber, and Haywire Foundry.  Needless to say, I earned a very amount of experience completing all of the VON quests on elite :).  I went to bed after I got through Haywire Foundry (VON 4).

Tuesday, I took Erdrique back out hunting and took him into the Cult of the Six.  While there, I took him head on into the cultists, mephits, and wights of the wicked cult.  While out there I completed The Temple Outpost: Captives of the Cult, The Temple Outpost: The Libram of the Six, The Fane of the Six: Cleansing the Temple, The Fane of the Six: Fall of the Prelate, and the Sanctum: Quench the Flames, leaving only the last quest for me to complete the storyarc.  I had to travel back from Florida to North Carolina on New Year’s Eve and logged out at that point to get some sleep.

During New Year’s Eve, I didn’t log in as I was traveling from the early morning to late afternoon and then my wife and I headed out to dinner and then to my sister-in-laws to celebrate the coming of the New Year.  But on Thursday, I took advantage of having the day off and logged Erdrique back in to battle the Cultists of the Six in The Sanctum:Church of the Fury and to complete that storyarc.  I then took him through the Cannith Challenging Lava Caves: Circles of Power and then out to the Red Fens to battle the forces of the sahaugin in The Last Stand and Fathom of the Depths.  I actually had some difficulty in The Last Stand at first, as the champions that spawned overwhelmed me and my hireling and I couldn’t keep Viercha alive.  However, one I brought in one additional hireling into the quest with me, I had little difficulty.

During that time I moved Erdrique up from level 11 to 13, with an excellent start into level 14 (which I hit over the weekend).  So it was a nice set of questing and that was quite productive for me concerning Erdrique as I started out 2015.  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
