Back to the Withered Lands #EQ2 #EverQuest2
Like I typically do in the summer months, I have been wandering around from game to game, trying to find what appeals to me. Lately that has been EverQuest2. My defiler is already 95 but I decided to work on my illusionist, hoping that perhaps she would be a better fit for groups. Right now she is level 91 although I just reached that today. I did a bit of research and it seems like the ‘fast’ way to level would be to get a group at Skyshrine and grind – however – I’m not really keen on leveling that way so I’ve been completing quests in The Withered Lands.
Man the quests sure do reward a LOT of money, but not that much gear. The pieces my illusionist is wearing is well beyond ‘outdated’ by this point in time. She thankfully does have her epic done (and repercussions) so I don’t have to go backwards too far in the timeline. She also has 280+ aa so I don’t have to worry about not being able to level.
I was able to ding 91 by completing most of the timeline, but I still have to inch my way to 92 and then after that I can begin the Chains of Eternity quest line and FINALLY move on to Cobalt Scar which I’ve never seen before. I did have fun with Hamal wandering through some of the new(ish) dungeons that were added a while ago, but I did those with my defiler, not the illusionist that I’m working on now. For so long I’ve been 95 on only my crafters, it feels nice to stretch my legs and work on a character again.
Am I excited after my extended break from the game? Well. Yes. I think it would be better if I had a ‘home’ any more in game, but my Oasis guild fell apart and every single person left. So for now I’m on Antonia Bayle, learning the ropes once again.
If you have some characters that are primarily crafters and decorators, rather than adventurers, then I might recommend to you the guild, Homes and Tomes. Contact person would be Jazabelle in-game. She is on daily if you’re interested.
Now you are 92, be sure to craft the full set of gear for yourself of that level using refined rares, that stuff was really decent and will make levelling a lot easier!
