Still taking it Slow
More time with Qutey, the monk – who still has her experience disabled
I still wasn’t in the mood to do anything with my “mains” yesterday, but I’ve been having a whole lot of fun on my baby monk and exploring the old zones and doing the baby quests. Her rankings are not that impressive for a level 24 character, except maybe the “quests completed” section, I’m quite happy with the 226 quests completed (for monks, on Antonia Bayle – ranking 694th so far). Why bother even checking these statistics out? Well, it gives me a little bit of a goal. For example, what if I were in the top 100 of top questing monks on Antonia Bayle. I’d like that I think. It’s a little bit of weird, simple, competition, and a goal that I can work towards (slowly). Of course now that I’ve posted this I expect all the other monks out there to suddenly develop their questing sides and I’ll have a hard time getting above the 500 mark. Serves me right though!
Down time is 8 hours today, so I’ve spent it going through old screen shots, and contemplating designing a signature for my characters. Perhaps re-designing the blog layout, though I like the one I’ve got I’d like a custom header I think. The kitty is passed out on the ottoman beside me in her usual spot. One of the fun quests I did yesterday (that didn’t involve camping boring named in Blackburrow.. ew..) was the Firemyst gully access quest. Once I’d completed it I decided to give the zone a shot. There was a quest in the zone to give me a very cool dw weapon that has a proc vs. undead. Of course at level 24 I had out grown it (though it was still a level 19 quest / reward) so I mailed it to an alt to sell. I managed to invis through the zone to light the signal fires I had to click — however the final one was right at the foot steps of a level 20^^^ heroic, Galintari the Apocryphal, and they were not pleased with my intrusion. So, I discovered another reason why I love monks. Even though mine is only level 24 and her adept3 FD gives her a 65% chance to succeed, I ran up the front stairs, directly in front of the named, and feigned. It worked. Whew. Then while I was feigned I clicked the final signal fire I needed for the update. I wasn’t quite big enough to handle the named alone yet.
I also picked up skeleton L&L from the Tower of Bones in Darklight Woods, and werewolf L&L as well. I find Qutey is still getting too much experience from her quest turn ins (I did manage to clear out a whole lot of grey ones she still had though, and got 2% a turn in or so at her level) and I know I could suicide on her and rack up a whole lot of debt in order to slow down the quest experience, but I’m not keen on that idea. I really dislike having debt.
Four more hours of down time… expect a few more posts.
