Only Five More to Go
Day two of the troubador Xegonite hunt. The screen shot above is my permanent home, or has been for the last little while. I need only two more xegonite, and then I’ll have my 10. So far I’ve spent a total of 4h30m harvesting, which isn’t too bad. I have 10 spongy loam, and so many common materials I think I can supply alts for a while. I’ve made some money while I worked on this portion as well from the shinies that spawn on occasion close to where I’m harvesting.
The area is fantastic. There’s three alcoves with nodes, roughly 3-6 nodes in an alcove. From time to time someone wanders by, and I send them a tell explaining I’m here for my troubador epic and if they’d like the common materials I’d kindly pass them off in the hopes of being able to harvest my last two Xegonite. The first two people didn’t reply back, but they did move. The next two wished me luck and also moved. I don’t like “claiming” an area, but I do really want to get this quest done.
I also caved in yesterday and moved my 58 necromancer / 80 sage over to Najena. It was the last transfer I’ll do – vowing to myself to stay here until I’m old and decrepit. I’ll be starting the sage epic on her later on, hopefully. I’m going to look for the same guild who helped me out last time and see how that goes. I’m excited to have the necromancer over on this server, even more so to have an 80 sage kicking around.
I did manage to squeeze out a carpenter level last night too, hitting level 62. The grind has slowed down some, but mostly just because I’ve been busy with other things and can’t devote quite as much time to it as I’d like. The recipes for this tier are exciting and fresh to me, I knew once I passed T6 it would just be a wonderful experience. I’ve been browsing the housing forum on EQ2players, the Norrathian Homeshow. If you haven’t checked it out (and some of the absolutely amazing creations people have in there) I highly suggest it.
Anyhow, I suppose it’s back to xegonite harvesting!
