Over the weekend, I ran quite a number of challenges with Erdrique (Level 17 Rogue) as I continue to work on gathering ingredients to upgrade my Spare Hand and Ring of the Stalker. However, prior to hitting up those challenges, I started my questing on Friday morning by taking Charlock (Level 14 Fighter) out into the Red Fens. Charlock is slowly gaining ground out there with his slayers but still has a long way to go before he maxes that area out. I didn’t get a chance to log on during the afternoon but to make up for that quest run I missed, to start the Friday night out, I logged on with Hamllin (Level 16 Fighter) and I took him out through Ataraxia’s Haven to hunt down some more rares and slayers. After I moved Hamllin through Ataraxia’s Haven, I then logged on with Erdrique and took him for his slayer run out into the Red Fens. Erdrique is much further along that Charlock and is well over 5,000 slayers. It shouldn’t take him much longer to get to that 7,500 slayer mark. I then too Erdrique into the Cannith Challenge Extraplanar Palace: Dragon’s Hoard and then I took him into the Lordsmarch Plaza and the Harbor to complete the quest Blockade Buster on elite. I called it a night after the I took down the Droaam blockade.

Now Saturday was a little unusual for me. I had originally planned this Saturday to be a date night with my wife. My wife had to work during the day and because I was able to get ahead in my yard work and my chores, I took the liberty to log in sporadically throughout the day on Saturday. As a result, I ran through the Cannith Challenge Lava Caves: Colossal Crystal five times with Erdrique in order to gather more ingredients. Those were the only runs I was able to knock out on Saturday.

Sunday, like Saturday, I was able to log in throughout the afternoon while my wife was at work. This time I took Erdrique through the Cannith Challenge Extraplanar Palace: Labor Shortage. During some of these runs, I grouped up with Okhamel who was doing the same type of thing me, logging in throughout the day between chores. All told I ran seven iterations of the Labor Shortage challenge. Later that night, I had a change of pace. I logged on with Suppply (Level 9 Paladin) and took him through The Depths of Darkness on elite and then I grouped up with Khameltoe and Clairique and we knocked out Stromvauld’s Mine and Stormcleave on elite.

It was a fun weekend overall. I only need to make my way through Kobold Island: The Disruptor now and I will have enough ingredients to upgrade that Spare Hand and Ring of the Stalker. Hopefully I can make time for that this week because I would like to have that upgraded. I hope everybody else had a fun weekend as well. Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting in the challenges!!
