For some reason, the screen shot pictured above is what my graphic card keeps doing (randomly) in game. In EQ2 this happens once every few hours, I can drop to desktop (just alt tabbing out) and go back into game and it will fix itself. However, it’s not limited to EQ2. When I was playing DDO to do a review for MMORPG.com, it was happening every 20 seconds or so. I’ve not had it happen in LoTRO (yet), or VG, or even EQ1, but it sure doesn’t like EQ2 or DDO. I haven’t figured out the issue yet, and I’m reluctant to get a new video card already because the 8800 I’m using now is still fairly new to me. The 7600 seemed to do a better job though.
Last night I wandered around Kunzar Jungle with the coercer, doing a few quests for some upgrades. Now that she’s hit 75 she can tag along on void shard quests with the biguns and save up for her gear. I had intended on working some of those last night but things didn’t quite work out that way. I did get a nice pair of gloves from questing in the jungle that I had been eyeballing though. I still find it amusing that I have an 80 coercer already as well as an 80 illusionist, so this is my 2nd coercer. If I ever manage to get all of my characters on the same server again that will be funny. I haven’t decided if I’ll keep both coercers forever or not. I more then likely will, who wants to delete a level 80 character.
The guild that I’m in (smaller one with close friends) also hit level 22. We’re saving up (well, I am at least) status and coin to one day get a hall. Will it happen? Not exactly sure, but it’s fun to think about. In the mean time there’s a few halls who have set their druid rings and portals to public so that everyone can use them – a great idea I personally think. I also peeked in on Najena and was happy to see folks there having a good time.
I have one more article to complete today, and then the rest of the week I’ll be able to just devote to gaming and relaxing and getting over this horrible cold that I’ve had since I got back from San Diego. Today the frog voice has sunk to a new low and I’ve got a horrible cough that makes me feel like a smoker of 10+ years even though I’ve never touched those things in my life. It’s got to get better soon though, right?
See you in Norrath!
