Looking back at my quest runs this week I noticed that the only trend I was able to pick up wast that they were quite varied, spread throughout level ranges and quest difficulties. I kicked off the week with a Monday morning slayer run with Wapoyei (Level 23 Cleric/Exalted Angel) who is working slowly but diligently through the wilds of The High Road. Later that afternoon, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 16 Monk) and took him into the ever popular quest, Made to Order on elite. Being a monk, I was able to dodge the majority of mine traps making this quest significantly easier. I believe now the only level 11 quest Erdrique still needs to complete are a few in the Necro III chain. Monday night, while also working with some issues during our digital PNP session, I logged on with Rimuldar (Level 23 Wizard/Magister) and took him into the Spinner of Shadows on Epic Normal. I had really thought about trying Epic Hard especially since I had both owl bears, my onyx panther, and a favored soul/exalted angel hireling but decided against it because I knew my attention was already being diverted. As it was I died a few time in there but really didn’t have many issues getting it done.
Tuesday I kicked off the day with a slayer run in the heroic version of Gianthold with Sludgge (Level 21 Rogue/Shadowdancer). Sludgge is currently working on his Stormeye slayers. After work, I logged on with Hamllin (Level 15 Fighter) and decided to get my revenge on the quest, Dreams of Insanity The last time I took Hamllin in there he was level 14 and only needed one more rune to activate to complete the quest but all of his gear was destroyed and I had ran out of time to get the quest done. This time I was successful. I still managed to get killed at the end switching runes and I still manage to fall from the catwalks a few times but in the end I did finish activating all of the runes. Time to move on to the next level 11 quest!! That night, I was scheduled to bring on Containment (Level 6 Cleric), one of my premium account characters. I logged him in and took out into Kobold Assault on elite. I had some fun out there with the spell Soundburst. I then took him out into the Swiped Signet, one of my more hated quests, but I could only open it on normal so it wasn’t much of an issue. I called it a night after that run.
Ending out on Thursday, I was scheduled to take Kolll (Level 22 Ranger/Shiradi Champion) out int the King’s Forest. I had some fun running around that area and collecting some more slayers for him. That afternoon I logged on with Hamllin and decided to do an unusual quest for a mid-day run, Bring Me the Head of Ghola-Fan. The issue with this particular quest is that it takes a while to complete. However, since my wife had to work a later shift, I decided I should take advantage of that time and knock it out. So I took Hamllin through the Restless Isles and into Ghola-fan and had an extremely easy time of it until the end fight when his hireling cleric decided to “lose focus”. In any case, I got back with a resurrection from the cleric and was able to finish off Ghola-fan and his elite guard. Later that night, I logged on with Stoorage (Level 11 Fighter), another one of my premium characters, and I took him out into Three Barrel Cove. Stoorage still needs a few quests out there on elite. I took him through The Legend of Two-Toed Tobias on elite and then through Ghost of a Chance on normal (elite not available to me yet 😦 ). Once I made it through Ghost of a Chance I called it a night.
So, as you can see I played across quite a variety of characters over a large array of levels and quests. Erdrique is steadily progressing through his monk life and I’m hoping to hit level 17 soon. Thanks for reading everybody and I hope everybody also had a fun and adventurous week!! Happy hunting!!
