Finally, Dasie managed to get her set piece forearms
Yesterday was quiet, I had a BBQ to go to (oh my goodness crab cakes and steak and potatoes… it was so good) and then once I got home did a fast Valdoon run with Shadowgeist (I played Dasie and Stargrace). I’d been attempting to get the templar/inquisitor forearms for quite some time with no luck. Usually the shadowknight ones dropped. I was also hoping to get her the bloodlust earring, but that one decided to be a little more stubborn. On the plus side that also drops from the first named, so I can just kill that and avoid the rest of the zone now that I’ve gotten the forearms. I did a Chamber of Immortality run for the two masters that are guarantee drops with Ishbel, and did it again this morning. I have her parked outside of the zone so that’s pretty much all I do with her lately. Having so many alts is an expensive hobby, I figure if I farm that zone everyday that’s still 14 masters a week (minus whatever else I typically farm) and that’ll help when it comes time to gearing up my alts.
Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I dusted Yamini off and headed to the Obelisk of Lost Souls. Spent some time farming in there (while boxing, of course) and hit level 49 with her. I’m still looking to get both her and Goudia to 52 so that they can wear all that cobalt gear I bought a while back. Tonight is another off night, so no raids at least. Tomorrow is labs and Chel’Drak. I’m sure both will go very well.
A small pet peeve I have, is when people keep asking / bothering me for the items I loot. Now, that sort of comes off wrong. I’m not a greedy person and I don’t have any issues helping my friends or giving stuff away, but I hate it when almost complete strangers ask me for that sort of stuff. A few have said ‘well I don’t get the luxury of boxing’ or ‘I don’t play as much as you do’. But I still put forth time and effort to accomplish anything that I have in game. Those should not be ‘excuses’ to hit me up for items or money or power leveling. Is it just me? I mean, a guild group is different. I’ve been helping to level a few guildies in the evenings and I decline on everything that drops unless it may be a tradeskill item. There’s simply no need for me to roll on that stuff since I have my own characters and because I can indeed just box to get the items I need. I suppose maybe I am not the nicest person, but I help in my own way. If someone needs help with something I typically am available to help. If they have a question about the game, I’m more then willing to aid there as well. I just don’t like passing out extraordinary amounts of material things. Though I did give a guild necromancer a level 70 master yesterday since I just had it sitting around.
A friend of mine who plays on Najena was telling me how she was finishing off her collection tome quests, and I decided that it may be a good idea for Stargrace to complete some of those as well. I’d been harvesting pages forever it seemed, and had only a few needed for each collection, most of the time only one was needed. So I looked up the quests and found out that for 8 of them, the pages I needed were actually clickies located in the Feerrott. So off I went, and completed *8* book quests! I was ecstatic. That was 8 more house items to add to the library. I also managed to finish four more L&L’s and added the weapons to the growing collection on Stargrace’ wall.
Other then that, things are quiet, and I can’t say I mind at all. I will probably be heading to Niagara Falls later next week so there may be a lack of posts, but it’s still in the works, so we’ll see how it goes!
*** As a side note *** This is my 300th EQII related post… wow, hard to believe I’ve hit that number already! Thank you so much everyone for the support and comments and all the rest that help make this blog possible. I really enjoy having this little niche in the MMO world.
