Quest During the First Weekend of the Year, January 2 to January 4

Continuing my theme of taking advantage of the experience bonus, I did the majority of my questing with Erdrique (Level 14 Monk) over the first weekend of the year.  I was able to move him from level 13 to 14 over the weekend.  On Friday, I took Erdrique out into the Red Fens and worked on his slayer mark.  After a run through the Red Fens, I then took Erdrique back into the challenge, Lava Caves: Circles of Power.  I then ran into some computer issues where my whole machine was just running extremely slowly causing a huge amount of lag in DDO.  While I was struggling with my computer, Khamels logged in and waited patiently for me to resolve my issues.  I rebooted my computer and logged back in where I grouped up with Khamels and we tackled all four quests out in the Red Fens on elite: The Last Stand, Fathom the Depths, The Claw of Vulkoor, and Into the Deep.  Once we completed those on elite, we called it a night.

For Saturday, I took Erdrique back out into the Red Fens to continue to work his 5,000 slayer mark.  I then took him out into the challenge Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door.  I then ran out into House Jorasco and completed the quest the Keeper’s Sanctuary on elite.  I then logged out for the afternoon but logged back on later that night and decided to start the Restless Isles quests.  First off, I completed Hiding in Plain Sight on elite by taking down Hazadill and his cronies.  I then headed out to the Restless Isles and spent some time collecting some slayers, explores, and one rare as I made my way to quest give for the Slavers of the Shrieking Mines.  I then headed down into the Slavers of the Shrieking Mines and had little problems in the quest, except for one ogre champion who was resistant to almost all of my attacks.  I also was worried when I lost a few wildmen from my slay living guard effect.  But in the end I was able to knock out the quest on elite with only a single death and top that off I looked my first Ring of the Ancestors.  After my run through the Shrieking Mines, I called it a night.

I brought Erdrique on once again early Sunday I took into the Red Fens once again.  I then took him out into the Lava Caves: Circles of Power.  I was taking advantage of my wife working during the day and enjoying my last day of vacation.  After completing Circles of Power, I head out to do some grocery shopping and didn’t log back in until later that night.  However, I logged back in with Stoorage (Level 11 Fighter) who was on my premium account and kicked off my return to my normal questing routine.  I took Stoorage out into Three Barrel Cove and completed the Legend of Two-Toed Tobias on hard.  Unfortunately that was the only quest I was able to run that night as I was also working on my blogs at the same time.

So, the experience boost is over and I have done a large amount of questing with Erdrique over the last two weeks with the holiday vacation.  I moved him from level 11 to 14 and he is well on his way to 15.  Things should get back to normal this week but the past weekend and week prior were productive for me.  I hope the same as true for all of you!!  Thanks for reading everybody and happy questing!!
