Today is Friday, which is wonderful. It means it’s almost the weekend, people are in relatively good moods, and tonight is another meeting of Nostalgia the Guild. I’m looking forward to our trip to Mistmoore to hit on some vampires. Though I expect Urtog will be doing most of the hitting on. Dainty just stabs. I’ve (unfortunately) been sick most of this week, so last night was yet another night of me going to bed around 8pm and I didn’t get much done in game.
What I did get done though was manage to make Dainty two pieces of her cultural armor for level 35-40. It requires a tinkering skill of 185 and her skill is currently 102 which means out of the 9 tries I failed 7 of them. But I still managed to walk away with a new chest piece and a new pair of shoes. Today I’ll see about making a few more pieces. The stats are really nice, +6-10 to pretty much everything, with a good arrangement of hp / endurance / mana (not that she uses mana). I still need to look up some quests some time for those “missing slots” of gear, but I felt proud that I could craft armor that’s pretty good for her level.
Before tonight’s meeting of Nostalgia, I need to learn ogre. Easily done. I also still need to work up my lock picking, disarm trap, and a few other things that I just simply haven’t had time to do. I love how EQ1 actually requires you to play in order to get these things done. I believe it was Tipa who said “well it’s really hard to level if you don’t log in” when we were discussing a few things.
The supplies for the 35-40 armor are very cheap, about 20p per piece all together. That mostly includes the 15p you need for the main component of the augment, which is water specific to your deity. I have my enchanter make these augments as it requires a skill and a quest that I didn’t exactly want to do on my lower level right yet. I’m not supposed to be getting experience, after all.
Once things settle down some, I’d like to keep playing my cleric (the drakkin) who I decided not to delete (she’s just too much fun) as well as Minxe (the necromancer) who can solo herself a few levels if I ever find the time. This weekend should be spent mostly with me at home trying to get better, and hopefully not sleeping quite so much. We’ll see how it goes, I suppose.
