Mixing it Up, Quest Runs July 6th to July 9th

This week I had quite an array of quest runs.  They ranged from some epic hard quests out in Eveningstar to some low level quest runs through the Sharn Syndicate.  My questing activities started early on Monday morning when I logged on with Hamllin (Level 16 Fighter) and I took him out into the Red Fens to continue to work on the 5,000 slayer mark.  In the afternoon, I was scheduled to log back in with Hamllin who I took right back out into the Red Fens and finally hit the 5,000 slayer mark.  Now he is laboriously working on the last mark out there, the 7,500 mark.  He will then probably head out to Ataraxia’s Haven, but we’ll see.  Later on Monday night, I logged on with Wapoyei (Level 24 Cleric/Divine Crusader) and I took him out into the King’s Forest and made my way out to the quest Unquiet Graves.  I went ahead and entered the quest on epic hard and some interesting times taking on those drow necromancers and their undead servants.  However, I was able to complete the quest at which point I hit level 24.  After I leveled, I headed back out to kill some time in the King’s Forest before I logged out to head off to bed.   I also was playing our weekly digital pnp game as well.

Tuesday started out with a slayer run through Three Barrel Cove with Suppply (Level 9 Paladin) who is a character on my premium account.  Suppply is coming really close to maxing out the area, nearly reaching the 1,500 slayer mark.  But he still needs a number of rare encounters and a few more explorer zones.  In the afternoon, after I got back home from the office, I took Erdrique (Level 13 Rogue) out into Ataraxia’s Haven and ran through the quest Reclamation where he had no problems teaching the duergar that they shouldn’t be ruining the beautiful landscape.  Later that night, I took Berann (Level 8 Barbarian) and was joined up by Hellspierced as we systematically made our way through the Sharn Syndicate chain completing Stand Your Ground, Dirty Laundry, The Stormreaver Fresco, The Bookbinder Rescue, Repossession, and Come Out and Slay.  After we completed Come Out and Slay, Hellspiereced did some character maintenance and called it a night but I took Berann out into Tangleroot Gorge to work on his slayers out there and then I called it a night.

Wednesday was a typical mid-week questing day.  Wednesday is date night for my wife and myself so I was only able to play during my morning slayer run and my afternoon run after work.  On Wednesday morning, I logged on with Wapoyei and I took him for some explorations out into the High Road where he collected some more slayers for the area.  That afternoon I took Hamllin out into the Red Fens where I continued to work on that 7,500 slayer mark.

To end the week, my questing started off on Thursday morning with a slayer run through the heroic version of the Ruins of Gianthold with Sludgge (Level 21 Rogue/Shadowdancer).  Sludgge is currently working on his 1,500 mark in the Stormheart camp.  In the afternoon, I logged on with Erdrique and I took him into VON 3.  I made i through the Gateway to Khyber without any issues, however while running through the Jungles of Khyber I ran into some trouble with the beholders who happened to hit me with flesh to stone.  I will have to get my revenge later this weekend.  To close out the night, I logged back on with Sludgge and I took him through the Black Loch on epic normal and then headed out to Smuggler’s Rest and collected some map pieces, doubloons, and compasses however I never got into the Crystal Cove 😦 as a 1,000 map pieces still needed to be turned in by the time I headed off to go to bed.

So as you can see, it was quite a range of quests here.  I like weeks like that because it shows me the variety and depth of the quests in DDO.  I hope everybody else had a great week and I hope you have an even better weekend.  Thanks for reading everybody and happy questing!!
