Powering Through the Cove and Threnal Over the Holiday, Quest Runs July 3rd to July 5th

The holiday weekend was quite productive for me.  To kick off my runs over the weekend, I took a character from my premium account, Stoorage (Level 12 Fighter), and took him into Sorrowdusk Isle for some slayers and picked up all of the explorer points and a few more rare encounters along the way.  Later that afternoon, I continued with that theme, and took Hamllin (Level 16 Fighter) into the mystical Red Fens and continued to wrack up kills to his 5,000 slayer mark.  That night, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 13 Rogue) and took him through the rest of the Cult of Six completing The Fane of the Six: Fall of the Prelate, The Sanctum: Quench the Flames, and The Sanctum: Church of the Fury.  As I was finishing up the Cult of the Six, Twotoe had logged on and we grouped up and headed out to the Ruins of Threnal and completed Secure the Area which is the last quest in the Western Excavation.  While we were working our way through Secure the Area, Hellbanisher logged in and we decided to make our way out to Smuggler’s Rest and the Crystal Cove.  He wound up completing three rounds of the Crystal Cove before we all called it a night.  And after the first run through of the Crystal Cove, I leveled Erdrique up to 13 :).

Saturady night was even more productive for Erdrique than Friday night. I kicked off Saturday by taking Erdrique into the Cannith Challenge, Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door.  I took him through the challenge to get some ingredients to trade them for some guild renown elixirs.  I then headed back out to the Ruins of Threnal and completed Threnal East and South (Abandoned) Excavations.  This included knocking out the following quests: The Library of Threnal, Escort the Expedition, Hold for Reinforcements, The Missing Expedition, Entering the Gate Chamber, and The Gate Chamber.  I then headed out to Smuggler’s Rest and ran around for some time until the Crystal Cove opened and popped inside.  I was actually a little disappointed that I had to trade for a compass but it worked out just fine as I collected another completion out there.  After the Crystal Cove I called it a night.

On Sunday, I logged on with Stoorage.  I was pleasantly surprised to see a long time Crypt Crawler logged in when I popped on.  I saw that Silkashie was on and chatted with him for a little while.  It was good to see him back on and into the world of DDO since it had been a number of years since he stopped playing.  Now to work on the rest of those old Crawlers :).  After I caught up with Silkashie and gave him a quick tour of Smuggler’s Rest, I headed out to the other pirate themed area, Three Barrel Cove.  Silkashie had to log for the night, so I headed out there to complete the Scondrel’s Run, the last quest Stoorage needed to complete for heroic Three Barrel Cove.  I hit it up three times: normal, hard, and elite.  I then called it a night.

So it was a very nice and productive holiday weekend.  I hope everybody else had just as much fun!!  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting.
