Quick Update

Just a quick update as I’ve not written anything for a few days.

Three of us have now hit level 25, though we’re still sitting at level 23 as we’re not entirely sure the bugs for taking level 24 have been fixed yet. We’ll see what happens when this weeks (?) patch goes live.

We had another attempt at getting a shard of the envenomed blade for my partners rogue by running Servants of the Overlord on Epic Hard, doing all the optionals. We got a few scrolls, but still no shard. She is now starting to think the shard doesn’t exist….

For a laugh on Sunday, four of us ran VoN5 on Epic Hard. It’s a good job two of us are monks with Abundant Step 🙂 And it was a very welcome 92K xp. However, VoN6 on Epic Hard didn’t go quite so well… lol well it was worth a try.

And I’m still loving the new stuff. I think I might try and spend some time roving around the Underdark this week if I get a chance. Although I seem to have a list of things I need to do (finish Underdark explorations, get the last of Elminsters messages, get a few Epic Cannith challenge items now that my monk has had to re-jig his equipment) and not enough time to do them 😦

I’m also thinking of TR’ing again. I just cannot decide whether to start on my monk (who I want to have 3 x barbarian, 3 x paladin, 3 x fighter) or my Favoured Soul, who I’m just bored with and is intended to be my completionist… arrgh!

Wow, I rambled on more than I intended to then. That’s me done for now. Hope everyone is still enjoying the expansion and the bugs are not bugging you too much 🙂

See you around!

MotU – Again!

So I’ve been pretty much been doing nothing but the expansion pack for the last 3 days. Actually, no, that IS all I’ve been doing!

I’ve been playing my light-based strength build monk and have got him to level 22. I have a few nice items for him that have put his stats up nicely (I can now hit 600+ very comfortably)

Unbelievably, I had someone send me a tell in the harbour last night asking me how I was level 21 when the cap is 20….. {shakes head in disbelief}

But more than anything, I still really love Kings Forest. Unfortunately this picture does not do the sunset justice 🙂

My thoughts on MotU

What I don’t like:-

  • The UI around items
  • Getting to Faerun (although it’s a lot like Amrath I guess)

What I like:-

  • Kings Forest
  • New loot
  • Kings Forest
  • Everything looks awesome
  • All fans of the film ‘The Princess Bride’ need to pay attention when doing the mission ‘Murder by Night’!!
  • Corn fields!
  • Shrinking mudmen 🙂
  • er…did I mention Kings Forest looks frikkin’ awesome!!?

So there you go 🙂

XPack Panic

A quick blog before I start my working day…

Our guild had a slight panic a few nights ago when my missus pointed out that none of us were actually flagged to get to the new XPack content when it drops next week. We were, but then we TR’d…. And since 4 of our 5 active members have bought it, and booked next week off, we really thought we should make the effort 🙂

It’s U13 all week this week then!
