Happy New Years to those who have already passed it, and to those who are celebrating tonight. I won’t be doing anything special per say, no doubt I’ll be gaming (not a fan of crowds of people). Yesterday saw a little excitement in game, for various reasons. As I was hanging out in Qeynos Harbor (which is a rare occurrence these days, with guild halls providing everything I could possibly ever want) I heard Gigglegibber Goblin screaming about not having any gifts to give to Aimee, a Ratonga.
After four or five of these screams, I headed over to the bank portion of the zone, and was offered a quest from this Gigglegibber, who spoke nothing more aside from that (I had complained about the noise, goblins, what filthy creatures).
The quest was to collect presents that you can see in the zone when you have this quest on you. It was a race with everyone else running after the same gifts, but Petites (the halfling who was doing the quest) was up for the challenge.
I love seeing unique quests like this. Number one, they’re rare. Number two, they count towards your quest count. Two very good things. I chose the snow generator reward and headed off to Baubleshire to put it in Petites 1-room (amazing) house. It has the same graphic as the little statue you click inside of guild halls to obtain the recall to guild button, but it has an off and on switch. When you turn the generator on, it spews little puffs of snow up into the air and has a cool swirling effect. What can I say, I love the house items. Thank you to the guild who ran the event, I’m glad I could be in the right place at the right time (for once).
The paladin is inching her way to 71, 80% through level 70 right now. I was working on those quests in Kylong Plains and yes dragging my feet through them. In the last week or so (just before holidays) I went from level 62 to 70 with her, so perhaps I’m experiencing a little burnout now. The greatest moment of the evening aside from the house item was the fact that my level 78 templar (who just hit 78 not too long ago) managed to drag her way through the entire level yesterday and hit level 79! Only ONE more to go! Shadowgeist ran around the Moors of Ykesha helping me clear out the beginner quests that I’d never done (which was, lets face it, all of them) and then afterwards with raids cancelled due to people still being on holiday, Albrta, Eyenstein, Kasul, Shadowgeist, and myself made our way to Crypt of Agony in Sebilis. Yes, you remember that zone no one does any more because we’re all too busy in TSO instances? Well it turns out that Petites had never been there before, so it was a LOT of achievements for her, as well as some great experience. Since I’m this close to max level I decided to use my experience potions, better late then never. I rarely use them and I don’t know that they helped too much, but hey every little bit matters.
Today I hope to run her through more quests either in Jarsath Wastes or Moors depending on what mood I’m in, and finish those off. Inching her closer to 80. Once at 80 I’d love to work on her epic, though there is also Stargrace who has (once again been neglected) been waiting to work on her epic as well. This will be my 5th level 80 character, and with the paladin at 70, and the defiler at 74, it won’t be that much longer before I add two more to the list.
Hope everyone has a FANTASTIC evening tonight, don’t drink too much, stay safe and many HUGS from me here at MmoQuests.com!
