A Part of Something ‘Bigger’

I’m not sure why I decided to main a priest – I think it’s because I already HAVE a main on the freedom servers, and I’m not really keen on starting from scratch in that way. A priest though. A priest would be wonderful.

The thing is, priests can’t do everything in game. They can’t improve items. Depending on which priest you choose you may not be able to mine (Vynora). That’s the path I decided to take.

Since servers came up on Friday I’ve managed to reach 19 faith. I need 30 before I can be converted into a priest. I’ve been dedicated in getting those prayer timers, and I also did another ‘new’ thing for me – I joined a large community.

Normally, I set out on my own. I typically want my own place, doing things my own way. This time since I’m focusing on a character that can’t improve items or even mine, I decided I wanted to join a larger community and really just help out and play in a different method than I normally do.

It’s going alright so far. I’m not 100% convinced this is ‘the deed’ for me, but the people are nice. I know a few of them as old timers from back when I was more involved with wurm (we’re talking 2012 here) and it’s not a perfect fit but it’s an interesting one.

Hopefully the project gets off the ground (a market) but even if it doesn’t, I’m having fun, and that’s really what matters.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


Welcome to Harmony

Today was the steam launch of Wurm Online – and along with it came a brand new server. There were definitely some hiccups, but for me, personally, things were very smooth.

Since I already have characters on Wurm I decided NOT to use the steam client. There’s really no difference between the two game play wise. You can’t use the steam client to log in old characters, though you can use either the old client or the steam one to play on any server with a new character. Does that make sense?

So I logged in to Golden Valley (the tutorial zone), passed through the magical portal to Harmony (PvE server) and immediately set off to raise my body skill to 1.5 and my alignment to 1.0 so that I could talk to the NPC in the chapel and become a follower of Vynora.

No real issues with any of that.

Afterwards I tried to get another character in game, and it turned out that there were some throttling issues going on, so it took quite a bit of time. My priest character will be joining a large market village and working towards skills that are preferred for a priest, and my second character is just to establish a little village for myself, nothing fancy. It’s hard NOT to set up a deed in Wurm I’ve found.

I eventually stumbled into the perfect area on the East Coast. A little bay with mountain, sand, trees, and clay all right on deed. SCORE!

I can’t wait to get it set up. I’m not expecting to make anything too fancy, but we’ll see how it goes. I also haven’t unlocked any affinity skills yet, or raised any skills that high yet, but it will come with time, I’m sure.


I LOVE Getting Mail

I love getting mail – it has always left me with a really happy feeling inside, but I ESPECIALLY like getting soft squishy yarn mail. I’m expecting quite a few packages and since our mail is very slow, it’s taking a long time to get here. So far I have received the amazing squishy sparkle yarn pictured above – a prize from my recent participation in a knit in public day. I didn’t do it in “public” so much as my back yard because hey, covid, but I still managed to have RNG in my favour this one time.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to turn this into socks, but I’m not sure if I want to hand knit them or machine knit them. Speaking of – I’m expecting a Brother KH-930 to show up (along with an 830 ribber) in the near future. I can’t WAIT to try it out. I hope it all arrives in good condition.

I’m also expecting a few fiber bats, and more yarn. BRING ON THE MAIL!


1/2 a pair – completed!

I’ve made two previous attempts at socks – the first one was a disaster, the second one less of a disaster and this is the results of the third one! An actual sock, that I can wear. Not perfect, I dropped a lot of stitches from the toe, and I didn’t knit it long enough so I hand-stitched a toe onto it, but it’s a functional awesome sock, and I’m really quite proud of it.

Now I need to knit up the second one. This is done in knitpicks felici yarn, so it’s nice and soft, and I just love it.


Wurm Online – Day 6

I doesn’t LOOK like I got a lot done today, because the deed looks mostly the same – but I did make a lot of bricks, and attached a lot of bricks to a guard tower that I have over by my mine door. I don’t have a guard hired (trying to keep the cost of my deed down) so I am hoping this will help when it comes time to fight the greenish trolls and scorpions that keep invading my place.


Profits

I can’t say I’ve been playing very steadily, but I AM enjoying watching the graph go up (it will take a few dips, I need to pay for some accounts coming up). My goal is to hit gold cap on one character before Shadowlands comes out. Why? No real reason, it’s just a goal I set for myself. Will I obtain it? I’m honestly not sure. I’ve been swaying to and from gaming lately, I’ve not been feeling the greatest and I’m pretty tired some days so I end up staring into space not doing much of anything. Hopefully it’s just the heat and summer that has me down.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


FINALLY – A Warrior Joins the Ranks

Thanks to the summer sale, I now have a 120 warrior to add to my alt army. I’ve WANTED a warrior for quite some time, but I just couldn’t seem to level one up. I’m really excited now that I’ve got one. I am hoping to use her for farming dungeons, so I’m gearing up (SLOW process) getting my cloak done, and all that good stuff.


Dragonstone Shawl Update

It’s a muddled mess of silk lace and merino garter, but my shawl is coming along, and it’s starting to get a little heavy when I pick it up! I like the added weight, and I hope it hangs nice once it’s done. For now it’s hard to tell anything, lace doesn’t look nice on the needles, it needs blocking, but it is a nice relaxing knit. I still have many more rows to go, knitting this many stitches in lace is a slow process.


Wurm Online – Day 3

It was bound to happen sooner or later. The lure of Wurm is just too great, even for me. With the newly announced Steam Servers coming July 24th I had to jump in and check on my old characters. Once I did that, I of course had to get myself premium, and what good is premium if you don’t have a deed…. The rest is history.


Back to Making Gold

As always, I bounce around through the summer and then settle right where I left, which in this case, is World of Warcraft. I’m multiboxing 5 accounts, making gold, and have no clear goal in mind. I’m thinking of boosting a warrior because I’ve always wanted one, and we’ll just see from there!
