The Obelisk, my new best friend (now bot-free!)
Sure, they’ve removed that access quest that was needed, but quests are still fun.. right?
Quite a few updates ago, the access quest to the first floor of the Obelisk of Lost Souls was removed – by means of the Feerrott portal. However, if you die, you get stuck outside of the tower, and you’ll still be locked out. So it’s not *really* removed. I decided since the zone has been relatively bot-free in the early hours when I’m wandering around, it would be beneficial to finish off those access quests. I’d already finished the one that allows you to wander the bottom floor (which is still a tad bit above my defiler’s level so I’ve been holding off on that floor) and started on the outter access first thing. It helps that I have four book quests that also use some of the mobs outside in order to complete it (yawns.. 30 nightblood sentries are annoying to kill, but at least they’re gren!) and it’s been going fairly well. I’m still waiting on Soul Harvester Kul, as pictured above. Four clearings of his place holders and no sign of him yet.
Things have changed a lot since the first time I attempted this quest with my templar, almost a year and a half ago. I remember spending the entire day just working on the outter access quest. It was a huge deal because you needed into the place for “To Speak as a Dragon”, which was used in prismatic 1.0 and “the in thing” to be working on. I was exceptionally proud when I finally completed access on her with my good friends Albrta and Eyenstein.
So where am I headed to once I’ve completed my OoLS access quests? I’m not quite sure yet. I’m very eager to get the defiler to T6 and level 50+ although those are my most dreaded levels. They always seem to take forever, no matter if I am a crafter or an adventurer. I’m thinking of working some court faction though, and completing DoF quests like Godking and other things I have not touched in quite some time. It should be fun none the less and I’m actually looking forward to it. I am not grinding away needlessly, nor am I in such a rush that I can’t enjoy things. Also looking forward to posting more house screen shots, of my own home this time. Maybe I can pick up a few odd jobs decorating!
Have you been there since they revamped it? Obelisk is the “farm zone” of T5. The named don’t have place holders (or they’re rare at least) they spawn every 15 minutes, and there are lots of them. I’ve easily gotten 20 master chests, legendary drops, and about 30 T5 tradeskill rares from chests over the past three days I’ve been here. The experience is also fairly nice, defiler is almost 49.
I hated it years ago…and I’ve avoided it so far since coming back…
I guess with the access quest gone, it may be a decent xp spot?
Just leaving a message to say…TAG!
