Well, as you can imagine, the primary focus for me this past weekend was to experiment with Erdrique (Level 2 Rogue). However before I did any questing with Erdrique, I logged on with Berann (Level 7 Barbarian) who was scheduled to take a tour through Tangleroot Gorge. I took Berann through the jungle prior to work to collect some more slayers. I didn’t log back into the game until Friday night, when I logged in with Erdrique. I grouped up with Hellbanisher, who had also just recently went through a heroic true reincarnation (that morning/afternoon in fact), and we knocked all of the quests on Korthos Island except for Heyton’s Rest. We completed The Storehouse Secret, The Cannith Crystal, The Collaborator, Redemption, Stopping the Sahaugin, Necromancer’s Doom, Sacrifices, and Misery’s Peak as well as collecting slayers, rares, and explorers out in Korthos Island. During these runs, the only quest that gave us any real issues was the Cannith Crystal when one of the cultists got behind us and destroyed the crystal but we did manage to blow throw it on the second attempt. By the time we finished all of those we were both ready to hit level 2. We called it a night not to long after those runs.

I actually wasn’t scheduled/planing on playing on Saturday because it was the third Saturday of the month which I use as a weekend date night with my wife. However, my wife wasn’t feeling good and went to bed early that night. This allowed me to log in with Erdrique and to continue working on collecting slayer counts in Korthos Island. By the time the night was done, Erdrique had completed the entire slayer area. He is now ready to put forth all attention to the Stormreach Harbor!!
On Sunday, I logged on with Crawlller (Level 6 Ranger). Crawlller is patiently working his way through the Catacombs story arc on normal. I had to start the story arc on normal because Crawlller is one of my characters on my Premium account and doesn’t have the luxury or opening quests on elite. So I picked up where I left off and headed into the Library to complete The Old Archives and then I head off to complete The Crypt of Gerard Dryden. I didn’t have any issues with the quests but during the game play I was also drafting up and sending out our guild’s newsletter so that was the only play time I was able to record.
Not a bad weekend per se. I’m having fun so far with Erdrique as I’m learning quite a lot about quartstaves and their use in melee combat. This week I plan on making some ripples in the Harbor and in the Catacombs with Erdrique so we’ll see how it goes. Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
