Fo Sure

Thanks to a new set of cloth gear from Takah, and some green dye I made for myself, Minxes, my Fo priest, is all set for her daily priest duties! Fo is a nature orientated deity, so it feels fitting that she be geared up this way. She’s also sporting an emerald staff.

Creativity

I was sailing around Liberty headed to a fishing competition when I spotted this amazing construction of a rainbow someone built. It’s all done out of walls, and I can only imagine the time it took to get such vibrant colours in game. Well done!

Will I Ever Tire?

I keep trying to play other games, but honestly, Wurm has so much of a hold on me it’s unbelievable. The graphics and changes they’ve made over the past few years are just astounding, and I can’t really imagine playing anywhere else.

Sales & Expansions

I’ve been doing quite a bit of archaeology in Wurm Unlimited lately, on my server of choice (Sklotopolis) trying to reach 90 in the skill (I’m still a ways away). I have managed to collect a few rare items though, including the pickaxe, shovel, and 2 handed sword pictured above.

I’m attempting to sell them so I can expand my deed. I disbanded my volcano deed so that I could expand over that, and I’ve recently added some farmland. Last, there is a mine to my north that I have deeded as Quail Caverns, but I’d really like to bring it all together under one deed. Less things to monitor, less deeds to have to log in alts for and less chance of being disbanded.

I need about 60-70 silver to cover the area I’d like, and more would be better. For now, I just hope to get a few more sales.

Rare Smelter – YAY

I finally created a somewhat useful rare in Wurm Online after all of this time! The first thing I created was a rare forge, which I have been carting around with me from deed to deed. Today I started smelting some ore and on a whim I improved the village smelter – which also turned rare. YAY! I believe this works the same as a rare forge, it will burn longer, faster. Perfect.

Wurm Unlimited Sale

I’ve entered into a partnership with an alliance member of mine, since 90% of the time I’m stuck on my deed unable to go any place because I might have to AFK (having kids will do that to a gamer) he is the adventurer and I am the crafter. He goes out looking for treasure chests and other articles of interest (Deathcrawlers in Caza) and then sends the items to me, where I make tools and then enchant them to prepare them for selling. We split the profit 50/50 and this way I get to make some neat things, and he gets to do what he loves which is adventuring and exploring.

It’s a way for me to feel ‘active’ in the game even though I’m not really that active. I love keeping the market alive, helping the server grow, making items for people and then taking their hard earned money and spending it on other things that I really dislike crafting (a good example is support beams. I really REALLY dislike crafting those, and so I purchased 200 from another player for 10s).

In Wurm Online we’ve moved our deed, hopefully to our last location. The previous place was great except it didn’t have a mine and that limits your space. If you have a mine you double it, and can put a distillery and all sorts of buildings under there. We did have a mine a short way away, but items left inside wouldn’t be secure, and that’s not cool.

I can’t wait to see what sort of things we sell, hopefully it all goes well! As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

My Volcano in Wurm Unlimited

I saved up and bought a wand of the seas for 2g. Little did I know that when I used it, the volcano island I spawned would be right under my feet. . . I died almost instantly, dropping all of my precious items in the lava. Thankfully lava in Wurm is a slow burn, approximately 1 dmg every 15-20 minutes.

Even more thankfully, a GM came by and saw my mishap, and moved my ship and corpse onto lava free land. Shew. That was an exciting and stressful few minutes.

Discouraged?

This week I’m feeling a bit lack-luster in my gaming. It might be because of the weather (it has been between -30C and -50C for over two weeks now) or maybe it’s just lady issues, or just the generic feeling when winter starts dragging on for too long. In any case, I’m not really playing anything that any of my friends are playing, and I’m feeling disjointed and annoyed by simple things.

I’m currently playing WoW, Dwarf Fortress, a random game (once a week), and both Wurm Online and Unlimited. What am I up to in those games?

In WoW I’ve moved over to the Dalaran server with my 120 monk and I’m playing horde. I was hoping that a more populated server would inspire my gameplay. I had previously been playing on the Argent Dawn server (alliance) and the population is pretty low. I love the server, but I wanted to explore what gold making is like with more of a population. A lot of people really enjoy the lower populations but I just wanted a bit of a change.

In Dwarf Fortress I started up another fortress and was almost instantly mauled to death by 4-tusked mastodon’s. Then they entered my base and slaughtered everyone who was left (it was early on in the game and I only had 9 dwarves). Time to start over again.

In Wurm Online I have been working on getting settled on Independence with friends. Our deed is lacking a mine and that’s a downfall, so we might be moving (again). I also did some mining, but it takes 1h for every .17 gain at 74 skill, so it’s pretty slow (as it should be).

In Wurm Unlimited I recently purchased a wand of the seas which will create an island and raise it from the ocean – unfortunately it’s not working on my main Sklotopolis server. I’m hoping the developers can look at it, but if not I’ll have to find a place on Novus to use it.

As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!

Down Goes the Black Drake

We gathered together on the Sklotopolis Liberty server to take down a black drake that had been harassing the villagers for some time. It was a great turn out with a lot of neat items raffled afterward. The blood that dropped created oil of the armour smith, so I brought alts along because my tools didn’t have this particular imbue and I still need to work up plate smithing (sitting at 77 right now, I’d like it at 90 at least).

I didn’t win anything from the raffle, but Ogur got a nice set of carpentry tools. I’ve declined a few drake sets in the past but haven’t had much luck otherwise.

There’s also a rift up on Liberty but players opted not to do it after the hatchling event, probably because most of us teleported to the event location and would need to use karma to get back home and THEN ride out to the rift again afterward.

Overall I had a great time, I always do at these events and I’m thankful the developers (and players) take the time to organize and run them. Maybe in the future my luck will be better.

Sales in Wurm Unlimited

I recently passed the 1 gold mark in Wurm Unlimited. It’s the first time I’ve ever earned that amount of money and I’m really proud of it. I know I could have earned the money ages ago if I focused, but there was always something to distract me. You can also donate to the server for some silver, but I’ve never really wanted to do that.

Most of my coin has been earned through selling steel tools. I make a batch and then randomly enchant them, selling them as affordable items for relatively new players. With the ability to earn 25c each day just from voting, and a very generous bounty system, my tools are well priced so that newer players can have ‘good’ items and then purchase even better items and enchants later on.

What to do with the coin? I’m not sure yet. The only real use I have for money is deed expansion, and I can’t expand until I can get a hold of a neighbour who is blocking me in on one side. I’m attempting to purchase their deed, but so far I’ve never seen them around. Aside from that, I’m trying to purchase a supreme bone from someone so I can get a weapon of mine done. When Ogur and I go to Caza I typically end up tanking, and I’d like to work on a nice set of gear with a weapon and a shield for it.

I don’t mind paying well for the few items I do end up needing. Putting the money back into the economy is the best thing in a player-driven market like this.
