NOT Speaking to Dragons
I’m doing to speak as a dragon, again. I’m pretty sure this will be my 12th time doing the quest, perhaps even more. I don’t mind it so much now, I’ve almost got collecting the runes down pat and it barely takes any time – what IS frustrating is that since Tuesdays patch there have been database issues and a few of the zones that are required by the quest are not actually up on the Antonia Bayle server. Tuesday after the patch Solusek Eye wasn’t up, which meant that even getting the quest to begin with wasn’t happening. Wednesday, Obelisk of Lost Souls remained down – and not only that but upon attempting to enter the zone my characters would be immediately kicked to character select, and thus “stuck” within the zone that refused to load.
I petitioned this since I obviously would rather not have a character stuck who I’m trying to play, and got a response in about five minutes. At least the GMs working on the stuck character queue are exceptionally prompt and friendly. Throughout the evening this particular GM was incredibly polite, and kept me updated with the status on the zone. Unfortunately even with my testing the zone didn’t come back up before I ended up calling it a night, but it wasn’t for lack of effort. The fact is that these things happen, and while it is a huge pain (especially since I have an open Cella instance that I am trying to not have expire before I complete this portion of the quest) it’s not an unreasonable one.
I’m hoping that today the zones are fixed and I can continue on with this quest. I’m attempting to get my Epic Repercussions spell completed on the coercer, and inching my way towards level 89. It’s going slow, but I’m looking forward to it.
Other then that, a quiet day in game! See you in Norrath.
