A Run Down of Quest Activities, April 21st to April 24

The week of Good Friday was an abnormal week for me, however this past week was more of a typical week.  The only change to my normal runs was that I also tried to get in as many runs as I could for the Festival of the Traveler.  The week’s runs started out with me taking Berann (Level 7 Barbarian) out into the wilds of Korthos Island for my slayer runs of the week.  So far, I have really enjoyed playing my half-orc falchion wielding barbarian.  Although I haven’t done anything quite challenging yet with him, I like his “feel” and enjoy the play style.  After I ran around and cleared out Korthos Island, I then logged out to head to work.  Once I got back home, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 10 Druid) and took him through a round of the Festival of the Traveler to me get re-oriented with egg hunting route.  After I ran that, I logged on with my other heroic true reincarnated character, Hamllin (Level 8 Fighter).  I was scheduled to take Hamllin through Three Barrel Cove and into the Garl’s Tomb: The Troglodyte’s Get.  The Troglodyte’s Get can be a pretty touch quest if you aren’t prepared to handle a ton of slow, hold person, and fire ball spells being cast at you from a multitude of troglodyte shamans and warlocks.  I made it through the Troglodyte’s Get with little problems and then logged out to make dinner.  I then logged on later that night (while also being logged on with Digital PNP group) and brought on Rimuldar (Level 21 Wizard/Magister).  The first thing I did was to take Rimuldar through a circuit of the Festival of the Traveler.  I then noticed that Rimuldar had never completed the Web of Chaos chain so I started that out with Lords of Dust on Epic Normal.  Using my onyx panther, owl bear, and a exalted angel hireling I had no difficulty getting through it.  Since I was also playing the digital PNP game, things were slow going so I was only able to make it through Lords of Dust.  Will need to hit up the other quests next time.  After that run, I needed to log out for the night.

Tuesday morning started out with a quick run of the the Festival of the Traveler and then a slayer run with Rimuldar.  I was planning on working out in the High Road but since I couldn’t get to Eveningstar (without using the Hall of Heroes from the login screen) I instead went to the Vale of Twilight since I hadn’t been out there in awhile.  It was good to get into the Vale, even over level.  After gathering some Shavarath Slayers, I logged out to head to work.  Later that afternoon, I logged back on with Erdrique and did another run of the Festival of the Traveler.  I then started to take Erdrique out to Three Barrel Cove to do Scondrel’s Run.  The Scondrel’s Run was the last quest Erdrique needed to finish up Three Barrel Cove.  As I was getting ready to head out there, Twotoe logged on and joined me.  We quickly tromped through the pirates of Three Barrel Cove and then entered Scondrel’s Run on elite.  The Scondrel’s Run is perhaps the first quest where you encounter significant numbers of minotaurs, but they didn’t slow us down at all.  After the run through Scondrel’s Run both Twotoe and I logged out to take care of dinner and other things.  I logged back later that night with a character from my premium account, Containment (Level 3 Cleric).  Because Containment is on my premium account, I can’t open quests directly on elite, and this night I was planning on finishing up the Baudry Cartamon Chain on elite, since I had already ran it on normal and hard.  So I started the chain, entering Protect Baudry’s Interest, on elite.  As I was working through the quest, Hellbanisher logged on and he had just finished going through a heroic true reincarnation.  So after I got through the first quest, I joined up with Hellbanisher and helped get through Redepmtion and Sacrifices and then we came out to the Harbor where he opened the entire Baudry chain on elite (Protect Baudry’s Interest, Stop Hazadill’s Shipment, Retrieve the Stolen Goods), as well as The Kobold’s New Ringleader, Durk’s Got a Secret, and Walk the Butcher’s Path.  During the run through Durk’s Got a Secret I was fortunate enough to pull a Muckbane .  After all of those runs we called it a night.

Wednesday morning was a light day in the world of DDO for me.  With the DDO being down Wednesday morning because of the hot fix, I played Neverwinter Nights II instead.  I logged on with Spirit Shaman Ragnar and took his party through some of the crypts just north of Fort Locke.  After work, I logged onto DDO Hamllin and took him through the The Forgotten Caverns.  After that I brought Erdrique back on to do another circuit of the Festival of the Traveler.  I then called it a night and spent the rest of the night with my wife as it was date night .

Thursday was quite an active day.  I started the day with Stoorage (Level 9 Fighter) and took him into Three Barrel Cove for my morning slayer run.  After gathering the majority of the explorers, I logged and headed out to work.  I then logged back on with Erdrique and ran through the Festival of the Traveler, Sorrowdusk Isle, and the first part of Grey Moon Waning (The Grey Moon’s Den: The Trollish Scourge).  I then logged out to take care of dinner and logged back on later that night with Stoorage once again.  Like Containment, Stoorage is one of my characters on my premium account and he was in the process of finishing up the Assault on Splinterskull on elite.  Khameltoe logged on and offered to help me finish up Assault on Splinterskull (Doom of the Witch-Doctor: The Way to Zulkash, Doom of the Witch Doctor: Zulkash, the Herald of Woe, The Last Move: The Way to Yarkuch, The Last Move:Yarkuch’s Last Stand).   After we got through out, I asked Khameltoe if he could open the Sharn Syndicate series for me on elite.  We then headed off and completed: Stand Your Ground, Dirty Laundry, The Stormrever Fresco, The Bookbinder Rescue, and Repossession).  That just left me with Come Out and Slay to worry about.  We called it a night after those runs.

So, it was a pretty productive week overall, at least in the number of quests tackled.  I hope everybody else had a productive week and hope that your weekend is even better!!  Happy Hunting everybody!!

Questing over the weekend, March 28 to 30

The weekend runs started with some exploration with Hamllin (Level 7 Fighter) through the Waterworks Slayers.  Hamllin is nearly done with this slayer area and will be moving off to Tangleroot Gorge soon.  So after running the Waterworks Adventure area on Friday morning for about 20 minutes or so, I logged out to head to work.  I had a late day at work and didn’t log back into DDO for my typical daily “after work run” but did get back on Friday night.  I logged on with Erdrique (Level 8 Druid) and took him into Three Barrel Cove while I was waiting for a few other Crypt Crawlers to log on.  Shortly later I was joined by Okhamel and Bofadee and we talked the quests Ghost of a Chance and The Halls of Shan to Kor.  These were some of the last level 5 quests I needed to completed on elite.  We didn’t have any problems pillaging the dungeons for either quest.  After we blasted through the Halls of Shan to Kor, Bofadee logged out for the night and Okhamel and myself started on Delera’s Tomb and completed the quests The Mystery of Delera’s Tomb and The Missing Party.  After those runs we called it a night.

On Saturday, I did an early slayer run, unusual for me on a Saturday.  I took Hamllin back into the Waterworks slayers to get him closer to moving onto the next set.  I then logged out for awhile and watched a movie with my wife, Spider Man 3.  After that, I logged back in on Saturday night with Erdrique and headed into Three Barrel Cove to continue his slayer runs while I was waiting for Hellbanisher to finish up his quest.  Once Hellbanisher was done, he logged on with Hellshammer and we took on The Graverobber, Dead Predators, and Caged Trolls on elite.  After we knocked those few quests out we called it a night.

On Sunday, I logged with Crawlller (Level 4 Ranger), one of my four characters on my FTP Premium account.  He still needed to finish up the Baudry Cartamon Chain on elite.  To do that he only needed to finish up Retrieve the Stolen Goods.  So I took him in there and then brought him into Stealthy Repossession where I knocked it out on Normal, Hard, and Elite.  After those runs I had to call it a night to get some sleep for work on Monday.

So, I had a relatively light week last week and a light weekend.  But it was still good to get my game time.  This week is also starting to look like a relatively light week for my game time because my anniversary is on April 1st  🙂 and I have a few late afternoon meetings or appointments that will keep me from doing my afternoon runs.  But I will still be on for the weekend :). 

Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!!
