This past week, I took on a wide variety of quests. I started things out on Sunday, January 15th, when I took Erdrique (Level 10 Bard) and Sttollen (Level 11 Rogue) into The Temple of Elemental Part One. I had a few problems making my way through the dungeon, in particular with some randomly spawning traps that weren’t in the passage when I first passed through but then appeared later. This was a minor problem though. Overall, I progressed nicely until I made it to the end fight. At that point I rand into quite a bit of problems. The air elemental spawned as a champion and I had a tough time dealing with him. In the end, I died way too many times at the end fight and finally gave up. I’m hoping I can come back to this quest and get my revenge soon. I did complete the optional objectives for slaying 10, 25, 50, 100, and 200 enemies. That was the only bit of questing I tried on Sunday.

On Monday, the only thing I was able to do was to run Cannock (Level 8 Druid) through the Tangleroot Gorge explorer area while I was also playing during my digital PNP group. Cannock collected 434 slayers, finished collecting all of the rare encounters, and came across Gharjat twice, Jarak three times, Xassak, Vilesting, Clamor, and Kroshk. I also came across Jana twice.

Tuesday, I didn’t log in at all. This was because of a long day at work which carried well into the night. Basically I was just too wiped out to do anything. But on Wednesday, I took Sttollen and Erdrique into the Searing Heights for my regular slayer run. They both collected 120 slayers and defeated only one rare encounter, Ghamzee. They both hit the 400 slayer mark and I completed all of the explorer points with Sttollen. Shortly after that run, I took Hamllin (Level 20 Fighter) into the Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords. It was the first time I had a chance to look at the quest. While in there, mind you I was also doing this on heroic elite, I completed monster manual deeds for hell hound exterminator I (1,759 experience) and clay golem exterminator (2,559 experience). However, I didn’t get a chance to complete it because I ran out of time and had to logout.

Thursday, I did a simple slayer run with one of my iconics, Izmit (Level 15 Shadar-ki), who I took into Korthos Island. He collected 146 slayers and took out Zeer and Vekz Spluhr. I then brought on Erdrique and Sttollen once again and took them through The Scondrel’s Run. They had no problem making it through the quest and completed the optional objective for defeating the minotaur lord. That night, I brought on Sttollen and Erdrique once again. This time I took them into Taming the Flames on elite. Sttollen had some difficulties in there. By the time things were said and done, Erdrique collected a monster manual deed for fire elemental exterminator (1,130 experience) and the both picked up a monster manual deed for human hunter (1,400 experience). They completed the optional objectives for slaying the mephits, fire elementals, and earth elementals. Erdrique collected 26 mysterious remnants and Sttollen collected 9 mysterious remnants.

To close the week out, I logged on with another of my iconics, Burrland (Level 15 Purple Dragon Knight) and I took him into Korthos Island. He collected 93 slayers and took out Zeer and Cicic. He also collected the monster manual deed for rat exterminator (330 experience). After that quick run, I logged on with Hamllin and took him back into Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords. This time, partly because I knew what to expect, I made my way to the end of the quest and had an interesting time with the end fight. In the end, I last long enough to complete the quest. I look forward to doing this quest at level. Hamllin collected two more monster manual deeds, one for clay golem exterminator II (account award) and one for mudman hunter (2,359 experience). He looted a Hardened Hide Helm in the last quest. That was the last run I did for the week, primarily because I fell asleep 🙂 and didn’t wake back up in time to log back in.

I hope everybody else had a fun week!! Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!
