Moving Through Some Quests, Quest Runs October 19 to October 22

Overall, my questing this week was spread out across the level ranges of from 7 to 23.  This week was a little abnormal for me because my weekly questing didn’t really start until Tuesday.  This was because my wife and I headed out to the State Fair on Monday and I didn’t have the opportunity to get logged in having been out the entire the day at the fair.  With that said, my questing started on Tuesday morning when I dual boxed with Kanndar (Level 13 Paladin) and Stoorage (Level 12 Fighter).  Kanndar was scheduled to head into Sorrowdusk Isle and since Stoorage is still working on that area as well, I decided to log them both in and take advantage of the dual boxing capability.  I focused primarily on Kanndar and picked up some slayers in the area for both characters.  In the afternoon, I logged on with Hamllin (Level 17 Fighter) and took him back into the Sands of Menectharun for another session of slayers.  Later that night, I logged on with Rimuldar (Level 23 Wizard/Magister) and I took him into the Underdark to find the portal I need to get to Sschindylryn.  Rimuldar is currently ready to start those particular quests and it was really the first time I had explored the Underdark since I put Hamllin through his current true heroic reincarnation.  I had a great time in there, coming across the drow, yuan-ti, and those purple worms.  I did find the portal to Sschindylryn so now he should be able to get to those quests much easier now.  After that, I called it a night.

Now Wednesday was a rather confusing day for me.  I had originally thought that the release of Update 28 Patch 1 was supposed to be that morning.  As a result, I logged on with Ragnar (Level 7 Spirit Shaman) in Neverwinter Nights II first thing in the morning.  Needless to say, I was quite surprised to log in on Thursday morning and see the downtime notice pop up on me.  But back to Wednesday, I took Ragnar and located Leldon’s Hideout with is a side quest I have obtained for Neeshka, my companion tiefling rogue.  In the afternoon, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 21 Rogue/Fury of the Wild) and took him into Tavern Brawl on heroic elite.  Erdrique now has all four quests from Update 28 completed on heroic elite.  The short duration of the quest and the fact that my wife was working late allowed me to get some extra play time in game.  Typically Wednesday is our date night, but with her working later than normal I was able to log in with Harrgon (Level 11 Favored Soul) and with Suppply (Level 10 Paladin) for another session of dual boxing, with Harrgon on my VIP account and Suppply on my premium account.  I had originally planned to take Harrgon during the morning through a slayer run in Three Barrel Cove.  However, since I was expecting the downtime I had delayed that until this moment.  I took them both out into Three Barrel Cove and was lucky enough to complete the area for both characters.  Harrgon needed to finish up the 1,500 slayers and Suppply need to find two more explorers and one more rare encounter, all of which were completed :).  Now they will both move to Sorrowdusk Isle.

Things started out on Thursday a little unexpectedly when I logged on with Cantlin (Level 12 Sorcerer) and with Stoorage (once again) for yet another dual box opportunity.  Like with Kanndar, Cantlin is working out in Sorrowdusk Isle slayers and I decided to tag Stoorage along as well.  However, when I got out there I say the global announcement flash up indicating that that servers were going to be coming down soon.  So I ran them around Sorrowdusk Isle for a short amount of time and gathered a few slayers before I needed to log.  LOL, I should have played Neverwinter Nights II that morning instead of on Wednesday but things still worked out ok.  In the afternoon, I took Hamllin through another circuit of the Sands of Menechtarun slayers who was able to hit 1,500 gnolls.  Later that night, I was scheduled to bring on Containment (Level 7 Cleric) who is another character from my premium account.  Containment is working on the Catacombs and I wanted to dual box with him and Cannock (Level 7 Druid) so that I could get it knocked out for him on elite, even though Cannock already had the chain completed.  So I brought both characters on and set up another dual boxing event and was joined by Rameses as well.  I picked up the chain, once again, with Cannock, and started from the beginning.  At that time, Containment was part way through the chain on hard.  Now, I restarted it and together with Rameses we knocked out the entire chain on elite (Friar’s Niece, Return to the Sanctuary, The Old Archives, The Crypt of Gerard Dryden, Setting the Wards: Lower Cathedral, Setting the Wards: Patriarch’s Crypt, Endgame: Marguerite, and Endgame: The Archbishop’s Fate).  Needless to say, Thursday night was quite productive.

It was definitely a good week of questing.  I had a lot of opportunities to dual box which I continue to find helpful with my premium account.  I’m hoping to have a strong weekend and look forward to trying out the Night Revels.  I hope everybody else had a good week and has an even better weekend!!  Thanks for reading and happy hunting!!

Experimenting This Week, Quest Runs September 21 to September 24

My questing activity this week has actually been really active.  This has been primarily because I have started to “dual box” with my accounts.  I wrote about my experimentation yesterday actually.  I was actually dual boxing when I first created my premium account but for whatever reason I stopped (can’t really remember why).  In any case, I decided to start it up again and see if I could make my questing in DDO a little more efficient.  So far things have been going well with it.  Now, to start out the week I was scheduled to bring in Containment (Level 7 Cleric) for my Monday morning slayer run.  Containment is a character on my premium account and is working on Tangleroot Gorge currently.  After he was logged in, I brought on Cannock (Level 7 Druid) from my VIP account and I took them both out into Tangleroot Gorge. Now Cannock is much further behind in his slayer runs because I started him out at level 7 so he still needs to complete Cerulean Hills and Waterworks but I went ahead and brought him with Containment to get an early start in Tangleroot Gorge.  So I had both characters in a group but I really taking Containment through the area collecting the slayers.  I did get a rare or too and brought Cannock up to get his free loot.  Cannock now has a small start in Tangleroot Gorge.  In the afternoon, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 20 Rogue/Fury of the Wild) and I took him into the quest Acid Wit.  Acid Wit was one of the last two level 15 quests he needed to complete on elite.  I didn’t have any problems taking on the acid-skar troglodytes or their acid-stone elementals.  Now I just need to complete Litany of the Dead and I’m done with the Level 15 quests on elite.  On Monday night, I had another opportunity to dual box.  I logged on with Crawlller (Level 7 Ranger), another character on my premium account, who was working on finishing up the Catacombs.  It turns out, that on Sunday, I had taken Cannock up to the same exact sequence that Crawlller was on.  After Crawlller was logged on, I logged in with Cannock once again.  I then paired the two up and took them into the Catacombs and completed Setting the Wards: The Lower Cathedral, Setting the Wards: Patriarch’s Crypt, Endgame: Marguerite, and Endgame: Archbishop’s Fate.  Now they both have the story arc completed and on elite.  I called it a night after that run.

Tuesday, I was schedule to start the day by taking Charlock (Level 15 Fighter) into the Red Fens for my daily slayer run.  Unfortunately Charlock still has quite a ways to go before he finishes that area out.   For my afternoon run, I logged on with Hamllin (Level 17 Fighter) and took him into the Sands of Menechtarun for some slayer runs as well.  Hamllin was trying to track down one more rare encounter and is working on 1,500 slayers for the gnolls and 750 slayers for the undead and scorrow.  After not finding Commander Errulf, who was my last rare encounter, I recalled and logged out to take care of dinner and to spend some time with my wife before my nightly questing.  That night, I did some epic questing with Larrs (Level 21 Larrs Bard/Fatesinger).  Larrs was working on the Sentinel of Stormreach Series and I was able to complete Storm the Beaches and The Tide Turns on epic normal.  Working my way through Storm the Beaches was pretty interesting and I wrote about that here.  I did get them both done and now I’m ready to move on to the Red Fens with him.

On Wednesday morning, I had another opportunity to dual box as I was scheduled to take Lorrikk (Level 12 Monk) out into Sorrowdusk Isle for my morning slayer run.  Well, Stoorage (Level 12 Fighter) who is another character on my premium account, is also working on Sorrowdusk Isle.  I logged them both in and paired them up and took them out into Sorrowdusk Isle.  I ran Lorrikk through zone collecting slayers for himself and for for Stoorage.  In the afternoon, I logged back on with Erdrique and I started the Vale of Twilight Quests.  After I ran to Meridia, I decided to work on Let Sleeping Dust Lie on elite.  I usually can make it through Let Sleeping Dust Lie with little problems however I was trying to make it through the quest a little more quickly than normal which led to me not being as cautious as usually am.  In the end, I killed to many of the Crimson Foot hive spiders.  So I’ll try to redo that quest this weekend!!  I called it a day after that afternoon run to spend date night with my wife.

Thursday I kicked off the morning by dual boxing with Crawlller and Cannock once again.  I was scheduled to take Crawlller into Tangleroot Gorge so I logged on with both characters and had Cannock tag along with him.  I didn’t stay in their long as Crawlller only need about 20 or so more slayers to max the area out.  After Crawlller maxed the area out I took both characters over to Three Barrel Cove to start that area.  In the afternoon, it was Hamllin’s turn to run into the desert once again for his slayers and he finally came across Commander Errulf during this run and now only needs the slayers to max the area out.  That night, I was scheduled to log on with Harrgon (Level 11 Favored Soul).  Harrgon is furiously working on trying to catch up on his lower level quests and I headed out to House Jorasco to hit up some of those level 6 quests on elite out there.  I also decided to to bring Stoorage with me, so I was dual boxing once again.  However, this time I was grouped up with two guildies, Khamellock and Eeickthegray who were playing their mid level warlocks, level 12 and level10 respectively.  So we headed off into Delear’s Graveyard and completed Dead Girl’s Spellbook and then we knocked out Redwillow’s Ruins and Mirra’s Sleepless Nights on elite.  I was playing Harrgon through this series of quests while leaving Stoorage parked at the entrance to each quest.  I did run into one problem in Dead Girl’s Spellbook where an armored wight just destroyed me with a single hit and I’m still unsure what he hit me with.  The only other issue I had was running Stoorage at the end of each quest to get the chests.  Especially in Redwillow which has a plethora of chests in it.  After we completed Mirra’s Sleepless Nights, we called it a night.

As you can tell, it was quite a busy week!!  My dual boxing has been going pretty well.  The only problem I’m having is moving my other account to all of the chests, which is more time consuming than I would like but I’m not going to pass up free loot :).  I’m hoping that my dual boxing will help both my accounts, especially in the various slayer zones and with knocking out quests on elite for my premium account.  I hope everybody else had a great week and I hope you all have a great weekend as well.  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!

A Challenging Type Weekend, Questing April 24th to April 26th

This past weekend was primarily dominated with runs through some of the Cannith Challenge quests as I keep working to upgrade Erdrique’s Ring of the Stalker and Spare Hands.  However, to begin the weekend I took my first iconic character, Tuhnn (Level 15 Bladeforged) out into the Sands of Menechtarun to enjoy the beautiful moonlight and to do some slaying :).  That afternoon, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 7 Rogue) and took him through the Depths of Discord.  Later on that night, I logged back on with Erdrique and I was joined by Hellbanisher and we headed our way over to the Marketplace and completed Archer Point Defense on elite and then we made our way to House Phiarlan to tackle the Carnival Series.  We completed Partycrashers, The Snitch, and Under the Big Top, all on elite, before Hellbanisher called it a night.  I then took Erdrique into a slayer run through Tangleroot Gorge and then logged on with Berann (Level 8 Barbarian) to try to run the Cannith Challenge, Lava Caves: Colossal Crystal.  By using the advice from Grimorde, I was able to get some completions in this tough challenge 🙂 (thanks Grim!!).  After that I called it a night.

Now on Saturday I didn’t actually plan on logging in but my wife was asked to do some babysitting so I took advantage of the time by bringing in Berann once again to do a couple more runs through the Lava Caves: Colossal Crystal.  Once I figured out I had enough jaded scorpions for my Ring of the Stalker, I then noticed that the next challenge I need to run was Extraplanar Palace: Labor Shortage.  Since that quest range starts at level 14, I logged out with Berann and back in with Charlock (Level 14 Fighter).  I then worked my way through three iterations of the Extraplanar Palace: Labor Shortage and received enough Arcanaloth Scrolls.  Now the only thing I need are the Jeweled Goblets.  Hopefully will get those this week.  After that, I called it a night.

On Sunday, I logged on with Crawlller (Level 6 Ranger) and took him through the rest of the Catacombs story arc on normal.  I completed Setting the Wards: The Lower Cathedral, Setting the Wards: Patriarch’s Crypt, Endgame: Marguerite, and Endgame: Archbishop’s Fate.  Once those were knocked out, I took Crawlller into a Cannith Challenge as well, Lava Caves: Circles of Power and was happy to knock that one out.  After that run, I called it a night.

Enjoying Some Questing Over Easter, Quest Runs April 3rd to April 5th

This past weekend was Easter and I did what I could to take advantage of the time off I had from work since we get Good Friday as a paid holiday.  To kick off the questing for the weekend, I took Erdrique (Level 5 Rogue) into the sewers of the Waterworks to gather some slayers and to knock out a few rare encounters.  I then took Erdrique into the Catacombs and completed the rest of that line of quests including: Setting the Wards: The Lower Cathedral, Setting the Wards: Patriarch’s Crypt, Endgame: Marguerite, and Endgame: Archbishop’s Fate.  Later in the day, I ran the Cannith Challenge quest, Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door and The Lava Caves: Circles of Power.  I finished up my quest runs with a run through the Sacred Helm.

I continued my questing with Erdrique on Saturday.  I took Erdrique into Kobold Island: Kobold Chaos for my first quest run and then I took him back into the Waterworks slayer area.  I then knocked out the first two quests in the Waterworks Storyline: The Kobold’s Den: Clan Gnashtooth and The Kobold’s Den: Rescuing Arlos.   I then took Erdrique out into Kobold Assault and had some interesting times with my new quarterstaff.

On Easter Sunday, I was joined by Hellbanisher and we worked on Waterwork Slayers first thing.  We then headed out into the Cerulean Hills and completed the quest The Captives.  After taking on the orcs, we then went off to complete the first quest in the Shan-to-Kor chain, The Cloven Jaw Scourge: Blockade.  After the entanglements with the kobolds and the hobgoblins, we made our way out to Tangleroot Gorge and completed the first two quests in that area, First Strike and The Hobgoblin Captives.  If you couldn’t tell, we were making sure we were completing all of our level 3 quests on elite to make sure we could maximize as much experience as we could with our bravery bonus streaks.  We then decided that we weren’t done fighting with hobgoblins and took on Irestone Inlet on elite.  We then decided to call it a night.

So this past weekend was completed devoted to Erdrique.  I don’t think I have had an entire weekend devoted to him in quite some time.  I’m usually either running a slayer run with somebody else on Friday morning or taking a different character around on Sunday night.  This weekend, the schedule just happened to work out where it was completely devoted to him .  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!

Light Questing Weekend, December 19 to 21

Well this past weekend’s worth of questing was relatively light for me.  I didn’t do any questing on Saturday as I spent the day helping my sister-in-law into her new place.  But I did get some questing completed on Friday and Sunday.  In fact, on Friday morning I started the weekend off by taking Hamllin (Level 14 Fighter) out in the wilds of Three Barrel Cove to continue his slayers out there.  Later that afternoon, I took Erdrique (Level 11 Monk) out into the The Graverobber.  I put that particular group up in the LFM panel and was happy to see one player request to join.  So, with the help of another adventurer, we completed and destroyed the undead the Lightfoot Residence.  Later on that night, I took Erdrique out into the Ruins of Threnal and completed the quests In the Need of Supplies and The Rescue on elite and leveled Erdrique up from 10 to 11.  Although I did put up the quests in the LFM panel, I didn’t get any hits this time.  However, after I completed The Rescue, I called it a night to get some sleep for the busy day on Saturday.

On Sunday, I took Erdrique out into the Sorrowdusk Isle and worked on some more slayers first thing in the morning.  Later that night, I logged on with Berann (Level 7 Barbarian) and decide to do the Catacombs.  I put up the group in the LFM and was surprised to get another taker.  After I completed the first quest, The Friar’s Niece, is when the second player joined me and we then took on the rest of the Catacombs completing To Find A Witness, The Old Archives, The Crypt of Gerard Dryden, Setting the Wards: The Lower Cathedral, Setting the Wards: The Patriarch’s Crypt, Endgame: Marguerite, and Endgame: Archbishop’s Fate.  I was quite happy to get it all done in a single night!!  However, after we completed that run, I called it a night.

So, although the weekend was light, it was quite productive.  I hope everybody else had a fun weekend as well.  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!

Primarily Low Level Questing With One Epic Run, Questing Over October 13th to October 16th

The questing for me this week was dominated with runs with my new druid, Cannock (Level 7), some more runs with Erdrique (Level 4 Monk) and Hamllin (Level 12 Fighter).  I did get one epic level quest run with Rimuldar (Level 23 Wizard/Magister) as well.

The week started with a Monday morning slayer run with Containment (Level 5) who finished up his Waterworks Slayers and then moved onto to start his domination of Tangleroot Gorge.  Later that afternoon, I logged on with Hamllin and took him back out into Sorrowdusk Isle and completed the quest The Sanctum: The Church and the Fury which was the last quest in the Cult of Six story arc.  For Monday night, I logged on with my newest character, Cannock, and took him through “The Voyage” and raised him up to level 7.  I then took him out into Korthos and completed the quests Heyton’s Rest, The Storehouse Secret, The Cannith Crystal, The Collaborator, Redemption, and some Korthos Island Slayers.  Even though I was over level, I also go back and run theses quest for the favor.  After hitting those up, I called it a night.

I was scheduled to play Charlock (Level 13 Fighter) on Tuesday morning for my slayer run so I brought him and out into Sorrowdusk Isle and finished that explorer zone.  Charlock is now ready to head out into the Red Fens.  My afternoon run was with Erdrique who I took into the Depths of Darkness.  Unfortunately I was running behind and that was the only quest I get in for my mid-day afternoon run.  Tuesday night, I logged on with Rimuldar.  Rimuldar was working on finishing up the Sands of Menechtarun quests on epic normal.  He only needed the quest, Against the Demon Queen, to finish all of the quests on epic normal before he moves onto the next set of quests.  The quest run went very well and I wrote about it here.  It was one of my more enjoyable runs in the epic setting so far.  After I took Rimudlar through the Court of Lailat, I then headed off to House Cannith and ran the challenge Buying Time on level 20 for some of the heroic ingredients.   I had no major issues in there, but I did actually get killed but I was still able to complete the quest.  After the run through Buying Time, I headed off to bed.

Wednesday morning I was scheduled to start the day with Lorrikk (Level 11 Monk) and I took him out into the Searing Heights.  Lorrikk is nearly done with the Searing Heights, he only needs one last rare encounter (Guck) and he will be finished with the area and will be moving to Sorrowdusk Isle.  When I got home from work, I logged on with Hamllin and took him into the last parts of the Ruins of Threnal: Entering the Gate Chamber and The Gate Chamber.  While running through Entering the Gate Chamber, I just realized even more how much slimes and rust monsters annoy me…  I didn’t run anything Wednesday night because it was date night with the misses :).

For Thursday, the day started out with me logging in with Crawlller (Level 5 Ranger) and I took him out into Tangleroot Gorge.  I was lucky enough to have another player join my party post in the LFM panel during my run through of explorer area which allowed us to power through the explorer area twice before I needed to head to work.  I didn’t log into the game for a mid-day run, as I took my wife out for a little celebration (she was accepted into a new college) but I did log in Thursday night with Erdrique and I took him through the last two quests in the Catacombs: Endgame: Marguerite and Endgame: Archbishop’s Fate.  After that,  I logged on with Containment and took him through Home Sweet Sewer, Kobold Assault (normal and hard), and into the Cannith Challenge Behind the Door.  For the challenge, I didn’t quite complete the quest as I ran out of time before I got to one of the boss monsters, however I did kill the Mother of the Nest and earned a supply chest.  After those runs, I called it a night.

To sum up the questing for the week, it was centered around low level and mid level runs with a very fun epic run on Tuesday night.  It was a good of questing!!  I hope you all had a strong week as well :).  Thanks for reading and happy hunting everybody!!
