This past weekend was composed of a few interesting runs. I kicked the weekend off by taking Tuhnn (Level 16 Bladeforged) into the Sands of Menechtarun. While exploring the desert, Tuhnn gathered another five gnolls and 25 undead slayers. He also encountered The Thirsty One. I didn’t get a chance to log in during the afternoon, I had a little minor emergency and had to go to Best Buy to get some new charger cords for a FitBit Charge HR. My wife had bought me the FitBit for Christmas and I have been kind of addicted to it since and I somehow lost the charge cable for it. In any case, we took opportunity to go out and eat as well which meant I had to miss my afternoon run. However, I did get back on that night. Now typically I run Erdrique (Level 25 Rogue/Legendary Dreadnaught) on the weekend but some of the Crypt Crawlers wanted to run through the Heroic Ruins of Gianthold. They were running level 14 to 16 characters so I brought Tuhnn back on instead of Erdrique. We then headed out into the Gianthold slayer area. Tuhnn gathered eight Stormfist slayers on his way to the Crucible. We (being Helldemons, Blackvale, and myself) ventured through the Crucible on elite. Tuhnn had a few problems, as he suffered some unfortunate deaths at the hands of the gnolls. However, we did get through it and received quite a bit of experience. Helldemons had to call it a night while Blackvale and I continued into the Prison of the Planes. On my way through the Stormeye encampment, I collected 30 slayers and also picked up the explorer points for the Beast and the Brothers, Fields of Immolation, Gate of Shavarath, Crystal Spin Peak, and the entrance to the Prison of the Planes. While in the Prison of the Planes, Tuhnn wound up getting killed in the Marut room, the Lamannia Room, and the Risia Room. LOL, it was a little rough :). But we did complete it. After that run, Blackvale logged out and I switched characters to Erdrique. I then took Erdrique into the quest A Small Problem on epic hard. Erdrique had no issues making his way though Mammoth Valley. I even collected a champion quest (had to have been from the onyx panther killing a named, I believe from a fire elemental). I collected 56 Fragments of the Twelve from the end chest and 13 Commendations of Valor. I then called it a night.

On Saturday, I logged on with Erdrique and I was joined by Hellorcish and Lunarhaze. We then headed off into the Tide Turns on epic hard. We had no problems making our way through the quest. After that, we headed out to the Red Fens and made our way through The Last Stand and Fathom the Depths, on epic hard as well. In Fathom the Depths, we also took out the cube guardian. After we made it through those two quests Hellorcish and Lunarhaze both called it a night but I continued into the Claw of Vulkoor on epic hard. I wasn’t skilled enough to pacify the guardian scorpions so I didn’t complete that optional but I did leave the treasure alone in the giant’s graveyard. After that I called it a night.

Sunday night, I logged on with Larrs (Level 21 Bard/Fatesinger) and I took him into Tharashk Arena on epic normal. I had a great time with him in there. The spells Dancing ball, Otto’s Irresistible Dance, and Greater Shout quite effectively. I also had a blast using the epic destiny ability Reign. Overall, it was a very fun run. However, it was the only run I was able to complete that night.

So, my weekend was primarily split heroic Gianthold runs and epic questing. Not a bad weekend at all!! I hope everybody else had a great weekend too and I hope your week is just as great if not better!! Happy hunting in Gianthold!!
