Working On Another Week, February 12th and 18th

My quest runs this week included some runs across a mulitude of levels, as well as various outcomes.  To kick the week off, I logged on with Harrgon (Level 11 Favored Soul) and Suppply (Level 11 Paladin) and I took them into The Grey Moon’s Den: The Trollish Scourge.  On the way to the quest, they both collected 11 slayers for Sorrowdusk Isle.  Once I made into the quest I ran into some difficulties while playing Harrgon.  Harrgon was ripped apart five times by various champions.  It really emphasized how under geared he really is and I will need to work on that.  Hopefully I can rebuild my stock of essences and have Erdrique (Level 11 Bard) craft Harrgon some equipment.  In the end, I had to have Suppply bail out Harrgon but I was able to get the quest completed.  They also took out Shaman Herpostaw as well as all of the ogre collaborators.

On Monday, I logged back on with Suppply and Harrgon and took them back out into Sorrowdusk Isle for some slayers while I was also playing my weekly digital table top game.  While hunting in Sorrowdusk Isle, they collected 270 slayers out there.  Harrgon hit his 750 slayer mark and Suppply picked up two monster manual deeds, spider (1,200 experience) and scorpion (1,500 experience) exterminator II.  They also defeated the rare encounters Saate (2), Vermilo (2), Teargon, Kremen, Kurmer, Furley, and Noozer.  Harrgon was also able to finish collecting all rare encounters as well.

I logged on Larrs (Level 21 Bard/Fatesinger) and I took him into the King’s Forest for some slayers.  While out there, he defeated two dire bears, one drow priestess, and came across the random encounters for the Knight’s Plight and Knight’s Collar.  He also picked up a purple dragon knight commendation and 46 slayers.  Shortly after that run, I logged on with Hamllin (Level 20 Fighter/Shadowdancer) and I decided to try The Devil’s Details on heroic elite.  It has been quite a while since I have ventured in here and I was rudely awaken by the onslaught of abishai as I made it further into the quest.  Needless to say I wiped in dramatic fashion.  I will have to try to get my revenge later.  Later that night, I logged on with Kolll (Level 22 Ranger/Shiradi Champion) and I took him into the quest Impossible Demands on epic hard with my new lioness and my onyx panther and owlbear.  Although Kolll suffered a few defeats, he did complete the quest and picked up 16 commendations of valor as a quest reward.  Kolll also picked up seven slayers in the King’s Forest as his way to the quest as well as the random encounter Money and Life.  He completed the optional objectives for saving the hostages, defeating Warleader Speitar and slaying the spider pet Akorstra.  I still had some time left, so I did a quick favor run with Kolll and ran through the Sacred Helm before calling it a night (picked up the Cloven-Jaw Longbow for the effort).

During Wednesday, I logged on with Containment (Level 8 Cleric) and Cannock (Level 8) Druid and I took them into Three Barrel Cove for some daily slayer action.  They collected 186 slayers which included Ilmarin Tychoon, Ithun Orenah, Vitia, Dulse, Dybesh Relix, and Strinati.  Containment also hit the 500 slayer mark and found a few more explorer points.  After that run, I logged on with Erdrique and Sttollen (Level 12 Rogue) and I took them into the Grey Moon’s Den: Extermination.  On the way to the quest, they picked up 11 slayers.  They also completed the optional objective for slaying Blizzard and all of the trolls.  Erdrique also picked up a monster manual deed for ooze exterminator IV (account award) while Sttollen picked up a monster manual deed for human expertise (account award).  That was all I was able to get through on Wednesday as I spent the rest of the night with my wife for our weekly date night.

For Thursday, my single quest run consisted of another dual boxing episode with Charlock (Level 16 Fighter) and Stoorage (Level 15 Fighter) who both ventured into the Red Fens.  While out there, Charlock collected 104 slayers while Stoorage collected 107 slayers (with a minor slayer potion).  They also came across Crooktooth, Kar Xyr, and Nab Ren.

Friday, I kicked things off by dual boxing with Lorrikk (Level 13 Monk) and Stoorage and entered the Red Fens for some slayers.  They both collected 117 slayers and came across Mudfoot, Fencreeper, Kar Xyr, Nab Ben, Sharkbiter, and Gorger.  Lorrikk also picked up a monster manual deed of monstrous plant exterminator (1,100 experience).  Later that night, I logged on with Erdrique and Sttollen and I took them Free Delera on elite.  They completed the optional objective for slaying the soul lock guardians.  Erdrique picked up 26 mysterious remnants while Sttollen picked up 12 mysterious remnants.  I then took Erdrique and Sttollen out into Searing Heights for more slayers.  They picked up 103 slayers and both hit the 750 slayer mark.  They also defeated Guck, Calcine, and Hazai Haatha.  Erdrique also picked up the monster manual deed for wolf exterminator IV and picked up another 3,390 experience.

To close out the week, I logged Erdrique and Sttollen during the mid-afternoon and I took them into the Searing Heights in hope to find their last rare encounter.  After a few attempts I finally came across the last rare encounter for them, Smolder.  They also came across and defeated Giallo and Ghamzee.  In doing this, Erdrique also picked up monster manual deeds for drow exterminator II, fire elemental exterminator II, fire elemental hunter, and fire elemental expertise II.  As a result, Erdrique picked up the fire elemental creature companion 🙂 and he and Sttollen completed the Searing Heights.


Erdrique finally finding Smolder.

Needless to say it was a busier week than the week prior and just as diverse.  Erdrique and Sttollen are now going to finish making their stamp in Sorrowdusk Isle.  We’ll see what the rest of the new week has for me!!  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!



Looking Back This Past Week, Quest Runs November 2nd to November 5th

This past week my quest runs were across a variety of levels and consisted of a number of slayer runs, adventures in the Night Revels, and regular questing.  I kicked things off by taking Rimuldar (Level 23 Wizard/Magister) out into the beautiful King’s Forest for my typical morning slayer run.  I’m going to have to print out a map of the King’s Forest and use it as a guide to find all of Elminster’s Messages so that I can get that completed, not only on Rimuldar but for all of my epic level characters as well.  During the afternoon, once I got back home from work, I took Erdrique (Level 22 Rogue/Fury of the Wild) out into The High Road and into the quest Rest Stop.  I found the quest Rest Stop pretty fun, particularly the location that it occurs in, a nice old crumbling castle.  Later that night, I had the opportunity to dual box once again.  I logged in with Crawlller (Level 7 Ranger) from my premium account and Cannock (Level 8 Druid) from my VIP account and I took them through the quest  The Sacred Helm on elite and then I took them both out into the Night Revels and completed the quests Haverdashed and Under New Ravagement on level 7.

Tuesday I started my questing out by taking Garrrin (Level 23 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild) out into the King’s Forest for some of his own slayers.  In the afternoon, I took Hamllin (Level 17 Fighter) into the Sands of Menechtarun for even more slayers and then I took him out into the Night Revels and attempted Under New Ravagement.  I’m not entirely sure why, but I am struggling with Hamllin in the Night Revels quests at level.  I need to take a look at him and figure out what the deal is.  Later on Tuesday night, I logged on with Larrs (Level 21 Bard/Fatesinger) and I took him into the quests The Last Stand and into Fathom the Depths on epic normal.  I also completed a run through the Night Revels and Under New Ravagement on level 21.  If you haven’t noticed I’m trying to get as many runs in with the Night Revels as I can.

Wednesday, as is typical, was a shorter day of questing because of my weekly date night.  I did some slayer runs that morning prior to work with Cannock (Level 8 Druid) and Containment (Level 7 Cleric).  This was another opportunity to do some dual boxing for me and I was also able to level Cannock up to 8.  I took them through the Waterworks, which was Cannock’s first venture down there.  My afternoon run was with Erdrique who went back into the High Road to run End of the Road.  I was a little surprised with this particular run. Up to this point, I didn’t find the High Road quests to hard with Erdrique on elite, although he is level 22 and these quests are level 20 on elite.  But this time, I ran into some trouble and wound up suffering a total wipe when I grabbed too many of the Netherese and their sellswords.  I’ll have to try to be a little more careful during my next run through.

To close the week out on Thursday, I started things out by taking Tuhnn (Level 15 Bladeforged) into the Sands of Menechtarun.  Tuhnn went off to hunt down some scorrow during this go round and hit the latest slayer mark.  In the afternoon, I logged on with Hamllin and took him for his turn into the desert, although he is working on his undead slayers.  I also took him into Under New Ravagement, once again, for some revenge and he barely made it through it (although I did completed it!!).  During the night, I was planning on logging in with Harrgon (Level 11 Favored Soul) and so I took the opportunity to dual box once again but also logging in with Suppply (Level 10 Paladin).  I took them both into Sorrowdusk Isle and completed the Iron Mines: Freeing Achka and Iron Mines: Justice for Gust.  I didn’t get a chance to take these two through the Night Revels though :(.

Overall, it was a pretty nice mixture of questing.  I had some low level questing with Crawlller, Cannock, and Containment.  Some mid-level questing with Harrgon and Suppply and high level questing with Hamllin and Tuhnn.  I even had a good amount of epic questing with Erdrique, Larrs, Garrrin, and Rimuldar.  All of these included runs through slayers, quests, and the Night Revels.  I’m hoping for just as productive a weekend and I hope I will have enough ingredients to get those augments for Erdrique.  We’ll see!!  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting in the Night Revels this weekend!!

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!!

It Was A Cove Style Weekend, Quest Runs October 24th to October 26th

Well, this past weekend I surprised myself.  I didn’t plan on running a whole lot in the Crystal Cove, although I did plan on running some out there because it is a special event that doesn’t come along all that often, but I wound up running it much more than I thought.  Then again, dropping the number of map piece turn-ins to 500 help to make that happen.  In any case I ran the Crystal Cove five times over the weekend.  However, my weekend runs didn’t actually start inside the Crystal Cove.

My weekend runs started with my typical morning slayer runs on Friday.  I brought on a character on my premium account, Suppply (Level 8 Paladin), and took him out into Three Barrel Cove to continue on his march of dominance of the local pirates.  That afternoon, I brought on Erdrique (Level 6 Monk) and completed the Sharn Syndicate series by finishing the quest Come Out and Slay.  I then took Erdrique out into Irestone Inlet and took on Yar-yar and his crew.  I then took Erdrique back into the Waterworks Slayer area and finished that zone.  On Friday night, I started out in the Smuggler’s Rest and then did a few runs in the Crystal Cove.  I had some help from Luchog and from Leefist as we ran around collecting map pieces and doubloons.  I then took Erdrique out into Tangleroot Gorge and started the Assault on Splinterskull chain.  I completed the first two quests in the chain: First Strike and the Hobgoblin’s Captives.  I then headed to the Marketplace and took on the quest Red Fang. I then completed one more run in the Crystal Cove before I called it a night.

On Saturday, I did some slayers in the Tangleroot Gorge slayer area and then I did a run through the Crystal Cove.  Later that night, I took Erdrique into the Cerulean Hills and completed the quest The Captives.  I then made my way back to the Marketplace and into the Steam Tunnels to do the quest The Sacred Helm.  I then took Erdrique into one of the Cannith Challenges and ran the challenge: Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door.  I then took him back out to Smuggler’s Rest for another run in the Crystal Cove and then ended the night with some slayer runs in Tangleroot Gorge.

Sunday was a relatively light gaming session.  I was scheduled to log in with Crawlller (Level 6 Ranger), another one of my premium account characters.  The first thing I wanted to do was to do some quick slayer runs with him in Tangleroot Gorge.  I entered the explorer area and I was later joined by Xahtep, a reader of my blog .  We blasted through the explorer zone twice and Crawlller wound up reaching over 750 slayers and he received enough experience to hit level 6.  Xahtep then had to log but I just wanted to pass along that I enjoyed his help!!  After the turns through Tangleroot, I took Crawlller out into the Cerulean Hills and ran the quest Where There’s Smoke on Hard.  I then took Crawlller into House Cannith and got his daily challenge token and ran through the challenge Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Behind the Door.  By the time I finished the run, it was time to head off to bed.

So, the weekend runs were primarily lower level runs, with a decent about of Crystal Cove activity splayed throughout the weekend.  Not my most productive weekend but it was still a fun weekend .  I hope everybody else had a nice weekend as well!!  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting!!

The Questing During the Week, September 8th to 11th

During this week’s worth of questing I ran three different epic level characters, my true reincarnated characters, and a few others through DDO and even a little bit in Neverwinter Nights II.  My questing started with Kolll (Level 21 Ranger/Shiradi Champion) on Monday morning.  I took Kolll out into the King’s Forest for my regular morning slayer run.  That afternoon, after I got back home from work, I took Erdrique (Level 17 Druid) into the ever challenging quest Missing, which I described in depth here, on elite and was quite pleased with his performance in there.  Although my hirelings and my pet wolf, Fang, suffered a few deaths, I did not.  After that run, I logged out to make dinner and to prepare for our nightly digital D&D table top game.  But I did long in later that night, while still playing our digital D&D table top game, and took Garrrin (Level 21 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild) through the quest Partycrashers on Epic Normal.  I would have attempted a higher difficulty however Garrrin is pretty undergeared and my attention was split between DDO and my other game.  However, with that said, I had little issues with the quest.  After I completed Partycrashers, I then did a favor run (completing the quest The Sacred Helm on elite) and then called it a night.

On Tuesday, instead of going through a slayer run, I ran my level 5 Spirit Shaman, Ragnar, in Neverwinter Nights II and his party through the mazes of the Highcliff Ruins.  When I got back home from work, I took Hamllin (Level 11 Fighter) into one of the older classic quests of DDO, Haunted Library located in House Jorasco.  I ran into some interesting scenarios when my hireling cleric was killed relatively early in the quest but I was able to pull it out and get him to a shrine and I had no problems after that point.  Later that night,  I logged on with Cantlin (Level 11 Sorcerer) who is still working on his level 6 quests. So I took him out into Caged Trolls and then I took him out into the Forgotten Caverns, I guess I was just in trollish mood that night :P.  After that I logged out for the night.

Wednesday morning I started off with Kanndar (Level 11 Paladin) who I took out into the Searing Heights for some slayer runs.  After collecting some kills among the Sulatar Drow, I headed out to work.  When I got back home, I logged on with Erdrique who continued his questing within the Harbinger of Madness chain and completed the quest Sinister Storage.  After that, I called it a night to spend the rest of the night with my beautiful wife for our date night :).

I was scheduled to play my level 10 Favored Soul, Harrgon on Thursday morning who I took out into the wilds of Tangleroot Gorge.  I didn’t log in for my typical afternoon run after work, but I did log in later that night with Rimuldar (Level 22 Wizard/Magister) who I took out into the quest An Offering of Blood on Epic Normal.  I didn’t have many issues until I got to the last fight.  I didn’t position my party appropriately and the stunning scorpions took care of us.  However, I was able to use a raise cookie and to get back to life and finish the quest, so it wasn’t a complete lost.

So this week saw me running more epic level characters than normal, which was good because I’m lacking in those runs to be perfectly honest.  We’ll see what the weekend holds!!  I hope everybody else had a strong week’s worth of questing.  Thanks for reading everybody and now get back in game and do some hunting!!

Review of Runs made during the weekend Feb 21 to Feb 23

Well this past weekend was dominated by my runs with Erdrique as he moved through some of the lower level quests in the Marketplace and Harbor.  However, my weekend runs started with Containment on Friday morning prior to work.  I was scheduled to take Containment (Level 2 Cleric) into the Cerulean Hills for the first time to do some explorers, slayers, and rare encounters.  After taking Containment exploring throughout the Hills for about 20 minutes I logged out to head to work.  After work, I logged back on with Erdrique and knocked out the next quest in the chain of the Catacombs: The Patriarch’s Crypt.  I had to log Erdrique out shortly after that to make dinner and to spend some time with my wife.  I logged back on Friday night with Erdrique and finished up the Catacombs (finally, lol, seemed to drag on forever) and took Where there’s Smoke, The Sacred Helm, Red Fang, some Waterworks slayers and the firs quest of the Waterworks chain: The Kobold’s Den: Clan Gnashtooth.  I ran into some difficulties in Where there’s Smoke with some of the orcs and actually got killed by one of the poison traps in Redfang.  Nothing like a good dose of poison to humble you.  After I completed those runs I got a little tired of running some of the lower level quests and decided to work on some inventory management.  I think I came up with a new system that I think might work for me concerning inventory but it will take some time to get set up.  But once it is set up, I think it will make my life so much easier…we’ll see.  After that, I logged out for the night.

I logged back on Saturday night where I grouped with Okhamel.  Okhamel hadn’t started to work on Waterworks yet, so we tackled The Kobold’s Den: Clan Gnashtooth and The Kobold’s Den: Rescuing Arlos.  I then suggested that we run the first two quests of the Assault on Splinterskull chain because those quests are also level 3 and I didn’t want to move past them while we were continuing our elite bravery bonus streak.  So we then tackled the Tangleroot explorer area as well as First Strike and The Hobgoblin’s Captives.  After that, I had gained enough experience to hit level 5 (I had that level banked and was forced to level) and spent a chunk of time upgrading my gear via Cannith Crafting and purchases from the Auction house.  Once I got that done, we headed off to Kobold Assault and had a fun time laying waste to kobold masses and their trog leader .  Okhamel and I then logged out for the night.

On Sunday night, I did a change of pace compared to Friday and Saturday.  I was scheduled to bring in Wapoyei (Level 22 Cleric/Exalted Angel) and to finish up the Sentinel Series on Epic Normal.  Okhamel was on once again, patiently waiting for me, and he logged out and back on with Friedrice (Level 22 Ranger/Shiradi Champion) and we headed into the quest, The Tide Turns.  We had a good time in the Sentinel Tower taking on Captain Tew and his Blood Tide pirates.  We didn’t suffer any unusual issues or problems, which is always a good thing.  When we finished, Friedrice received enough experience to level.  At that point it was midnight on a Sunday and I needed to call it a night to get some sleep for work on Monday.

Not a bad weekend at all, got Erdrique another level and am slowly making my way through his druid life.  Also knocked out another epic quest which felt good.  I hope everybody else had a good weekend and thank you for reading!!  Happy Hunting everybody!!
