A Second Adventurer Hits 90
The game is down for a good portion of the morning (ok it’s really only two hours) while battlegrounds get implemented (fingers crossed for smooth sailing) but last night my mystic hit level 90. I gained levels through a combination of things, grinding in the hole (which has become the new Palace of the Awakened) questing, and grinding in Sebilis. Laste night Kasul and I decided to mentor to 65 and head to The Nest, which granted a lot of experience, and then afterward I was about 30% to my level so we went to Palace of the Awakened. It was easier to grind in old world zones (although Desert of Flames is not THAT old world) then it was to fight through lag and other players in Sentinel’s Fate.
That means I’ve now got a 90 troubador and mystic, a 90 alchemist and jeweler. I don’t plan on leveling any more adventurers currently. Crafters on the other hand, I’d like to get them all to 90. I want to work on alternate advancement (aa) on the troubador because she is incredibly behind (I believe I’m sitting at 164 right now, which means when people ask for UT I just sigh at them) the mystic is in good standing. I may actually get some raid experience too, depending on how things go. We’ll see.
One thing a lot of people have been commenting on is the some what lack luster quests of Sentinel’s Fate. They involve a LOT of running around. Going to one npc, picking up a quest, going to the 2nd npc, who completes the quest and offers a new quest to go back to the first npc. Chains and chains of quests like these. There are a few good and entertaining stories, and I do enjoy working on faction but the running around can tend to wear a person down. Heritage quests? Yes Sentinel’s Fate has a few of these too, and while I’ve picked them up I haven’t actually taken it to the next step and worked on them. That will come with time I’m sure (especially since I need so many aa).
Now that it’s a little over a week into the expansion, how is everyone finding it? Are there particular dungeons you’re enjoying, or perhaps a chain of quests? Let me know!
Happy gaming, I’ll see you in Norrath.
