Well this past weekend was quite an adventurous weekend for the Crypt Crawlers. To kick off the weekend, I took out Friday morning by taking Suppply (Level 9 Paladin) out into Three Barrel Cove for my typical slayer run. Suppply is slowly making his way through that area. Later that afternoon I took Erdrique (Level 10 Rogue) through the short quest Mirra’s Sleepless Nights and then out into the jungles of Sorrowdusk Isle. However, the real adventure began Friday night. I had logged back into the game with Erdrique and then I joined up with Hellbanisher and Cascading as we decided to take on the Temple of Elemental Evil Part 1 on heroic elite. It was the first time we took a look at the latest content and I must say it was extremely challenging. We were hit constantly by mob after mob, having encounters with humans, orcs, ogres and gargoyles at nearly every turn. It was quite an enjoyable experience!! After spending over three hours in there, we were able to finally reach the end boss and to complete the quest. We all called it a night after that run.
On Saturday we decided to head back into the Temple of Elemental Evil Part 1 once again. This time Twotoe was on and he still needed to run through the first part. Hellbanisher wasn’t able to log in, so this time Twotoe, Cascading, and myself reentered the Temple of Elemental Evil and we actually had a tougher time this go around. It just seemed to have many more enemies than our first run and the number of traps wasn’t nearly as numerous. We wound up spending another 3+ hours roaming around the Temple and had to reenter a number of times to get the quest completed. But, we did get it done :). Now the four of us hope to knock out the second part next Friday.
On Sunday, I was scheduled to log on with Cannock (Level 7 Druid). Hellbanisher was on and he brought on one of his new characters and we headed through some of the quests in the Market and Harbor. We first knocked out Missing In Action on elite and then we moved into the Harbor to take on the Kobold’s New Ringleader. We then headed off to complete Information is Key, Haverdasher, and then into Garrison’s Missing Pack. We wrapped up the runs by completing Durk’s Got A Secret. Hell then had to logout and then I finished up the night by running quickly through Bringing the Light.
Overall, it was a very fun weekend that included my first two runs through the Temple of Elemental Evil. I look forward to further adventures in the Temple!! I hope everybody else had a great weekend as well!! Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting in the Temple of Elemental Evil!!
