Thanks to my amazing guild mates PixelOne, Cheyenne, Ironwolf, and Ogur, after a few fractal runs yesterday I am done the first step in obtaining my legendary weapon, Astralaria. Next I need to craft The Device, and then I can move on to part II. For this I need to do a few daily crafts (globs, mostly) and I’m trying to harvest as many components as I can to cut down costs. Most of what I need is iron ore, which conveniently has some static rich nodes that I can harvest each day. I do also need a lot of rugged leather, which I’m finding more difficult to obtain, and I may end up purchasing instead.
Getting a legendary weapon is daunting to me, especially when I look at the incredibly long list of components, but taking bite sized chunks and working on it has been much easier. If I could get it done by December that would be amazing, but I think it will take a bit longer than that, given that my playtime is sporadic at best. I’m still just doing little things here and there in between everything else going on in life.
