It was a fun full weekend of questing this past weekend. I actually started the weekend by playing Ragnar (Level 7 Spirit Shaman) in Neverwinter Nights II instead of doing my typical morning slayer run in DDO on Friday morning. I find Neverwinter Nights II to be a fun distraction to DDO and so far I have my game time sessions for it slotted in with my slayer runs prior to work. However, with my recent move for more and more dual boxing, I’m wondering if I could figure out a way to play Neverwinter Nights II every once in awhile while playing DDO. I’m going to have to work on that and see how effective I can make it. In either case, I continue with Ragnar on Friday morning as he cleared out the gangs in the back alley of Neverwinter and now has received another quest. In the afternoon, I took Hamllin (Level 17 Fighter) into the Sands of Menechtarun for some more slayers. Hamllin is inching his way through the scorrow and undead and making a decent enough progress on his gnolls. On Friday night, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 21 Rogue/Fury of the Wild) and I did a circuit through the Red Fens slayers and then got together with Hellbanisher. Together we started the Reign of Madness quest chain and completed Acute Delirium and Sane Asylum. After Sane Asylum, Hellbanisher called it a night but I continued on and completed Lord of Stone and Lord of Eye to get the quest chain completed. After which I called it a night.

On Saturday, I took the opportunity to log on with Erdrique during the daytime between chores and yard work and I took him back out into the Red Fens and finally completed that slayer area!! Now Erdrique needs to move to the Restless Isles and Ataraxia’s Haven, both of which shouldn’t take him very long. The Restless Isles will be nice because it will allow Erdrique to wrack up a number of ogre slayers in his monster manual. Besides hitting up and completing the Red Fens, I was able to knock out some challenges as well. I completed three runs through the Extraplanar Palace: Labor Shortage and one run through Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Picture Portals. However, that was all of the questing I was able to get done on Saturday, as it was my weekend date night with my beautiful wife.

Sunday, I again was able to run a challenge with Erdrique during the day and I took him through Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Picture Portals once again and then I took him through a run of the Lava Caves: Colossal Crystal. Later on Sunday night, I logged on with Tuhnn (Level 15 Bladeforged) and I took him out into the Sands of Menechtarun and headed off into the quest, Raid the Vulkoorim. As I was completing that quest, Khamellock logged in and joined up with me and we then headed out to the quest Maraud the Mines and then over to Chains of Flame to get those quest knocked out on elite. After the long run through Chains of Flame, I called it a night.

So the weekend was quite productive, even with having Saturday night as a date night. Erdrique made a nice dent in getting the ingredients he needs to upgrade his Ring of the Stalker to tier 2 on its epic version. Hopefully I can get that done through the week. Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
