Usually my weekends are heavily loaded with questing activities centered around Erdrique (Level 8 Monk) who is my primary character. However, this weekend was even more dominated by Erdrique. The only other character I ran this past weekend was Containment (Level 5) who is working on some slayer runs. Containment is currently working on Tangleroot Gorge. I usually do those slayer runs in the morning but I was running behind on Friday morning and didn’t get a chance to do that run until I did my afternoon questing when I got back home from work. After I took Containment through Tangleroot Gorge, I then switched to Erdrique.

During my afternoon room, I took Erdrique into Gladewatch Outpost. I entered in on elite and was surprised by the amount of trouble I had. The hobgoblins and their worg minions quickly caused a green alert but I was able to hold them off with my cleric hireling. Later that night, I took Erdrique through a number of quests. I first took him out into Tangleroot Gorge, as he was also working on that explorer area. After collecting some slayers out there, I then moved to complete the House Deneith Depths quests: Depths of Despair, Depths of Discord, and Depths of Doom. I then decided to finish up the House Phiarlan Carnival Series and headed into Partycrashers, The Snitch, and then Under the Big Top. However, I didn’t bring a rogue with me and I perished horribly during two failed saves on one of the wheels. I didn’t feel like trying it again but I did head into one of the Cannith Challenges before I called it a night and took on Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door. I moved through it relatively quickly and was happy to get a good number of Anitique Coins from the run because of the extra challenge bonus. At that point I called it a night.

On Saturday, the first thing I did was to take Erdrique into two more Cannith Challenges: Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door and then I tried the challenge the Lava Caves: Circles of Power. It had been a long time since I did anything in the Lava Caves and I found it very interesting dealing with the drow and their pet scorpions. I completed both challenges and then decided to run Under the Big Top again to complete the Carnival Series. This time I brought a rogue hireling with me and the quest went smoothly. I then headed out to Tangleroot Gorge and to do some more slayers and to continue on to the Assault of Splinterskull. I then completed all the quests from the Deadly Package up to Yarkuch’s Last Stand. By the time I hit Yarkuch’s Last Stand, my guild buffs had run out and the lovely worgs decided to take me time with a number of trip attacks. Needless to say, I suffered another defeat. It was getting late by that time so I called it a night.

On Sunday, I logged back on with Erdrique and decided to finish up the Tangleroot Gorge explorer area and to finish up Assault on Splinterskull. This time I was much more prepared for Yarkuch and his minions and didn’t have any problem completing the quest this time. After those runs I headed out to Barrel’s Bottom and Three Barrel Cove. I went ahead and took on the quest Guard Duty on elite and then moved into the Three Barrel Cove adventure area and made me way to the Fire Caves. I made my way there and completed the quest The Stones Run Red on elite. I wasn’t quite prepared for the amount of experience I received, as I needed about another 10 k to be forced to level. Well, I received over 18 k!! Talk about a change. So needless to say I called it a night with Erdrique ready to level up to 8 :).

So the runs this weekend were almost entirely all with Erdrique. I had a fun time taking him through a few of the chains and enjoyed finishing up Tangleroot Gorge. Now it is time to take on Three Barrel Cove :). I hope everybody else had a nice weekend as well! Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting.
