A quickie, from something that occurred to me last night.
We had decided to squeeze just a little bit more XP out before we leveled to 16 (we had a rank to spare) and settled upon running explorers & slays out in the Menechtarun desert. Off we went, settling into a run without too much discussion on direction, knowing fairly instinctively which way to go.
It was as we ran up from getting the explorer outside the quest Raid the Vulkoorim that it hit me – we used to get lost out here! A lot! I mentioned it to Rach and she started laughing, remembering the time she dropped off a cliff edge and ended up in one of the lower canyons trying to find her way out. “Where are you guys? Come back for me you bastards!”
Good times 😀
Have fun, see you around!

Getting lost in a slayer area can be very stressful. I remember stopping to look at the map and getting kissed by a mummy. Nasty disease she have me can’t have brushed her teeth for a long time.
Hey, after nearly four years of playing DDO, it’s only been in the last couple of months that I finally got down pat how to get to ADQ 1 without a guide. I was SOOOO proud! 😀
lol yep I remember the (old) guild running around in there trying to find that place – frantic discussions over TS with map directions 😛
I especially like how, by inspecting her dialogue, that it seems that group’s status of “you bastards” had already been firmly established. Better yet? She still came to you for the emergency search and rescue. Or maybe it was more of a lowering of the hammer punctuated with “stop what you’re doing and come get me. Now!
I remember falling off the bridge inside the village public area and having no idea how to get back up
The Desert is one of my favorite explorer zones. I remember falling and cursing quite a bit in there as I tried to figure out the map. There were a few times when I had to run back to the Chains of Flame after an unfortunate death (fell into the lava) and was extremely proud each time I made my way back there by myself :).
