It’s been a busy past few days in-game. Davyydeous went on his first raid with the new guild, hitting up the Halls of the Seeing. This was my first time in this zone and I quite enjoyed it despite our inability to clear it. We were missing a number of key raid members and were low on healers but decided to give it a go regardless. It was actually going fairly smoothly until we met our match in the Elemental Warder. We just didn’t have the healers or the DPS to finish him off despite coming quite close a number of times. I have to say it was quite refreshing to be on a raid where we really had to be on our toes, and were actually challenged. I found a lot of raids I went on with my old guild had become too routine, not very challenging, and ultimately not incredibly fun. Anyway, the experience was a good one, and I’m looking forward to settling in a bit more with the new guild.
After what seemed like a million runs through Obelisk of Blight (probably more like nine or ten), Davyydeous finally got his class boots, Strongbear’s Steelskin Feet. I’m embarrassed to say that Davyydeous had been wearing Xegonite mastercrafted up until now. It was the worst piece of gear I had and I’m quite happy to replace it.
Ordeth in the meantime, joined a group in Klak’Anon and ended up getting a nice robe, the Clockwork Spidersilk Robe. I’ve really come to like Klak’Anon and will probably be spending a good chunk of the next little while in there with Ordeth.
Finally, as mentioned previously, my Mystic Elrahir has been getting more and more attention from me as of late. He’s now level 47, close to dinging 48, and eagerly awaiting the arrival of his Maj’Dul carpet. I finished off a number of Heritage Quests that had been sitting in his journal for some time which netted a fair amount of experience. Elrahir also ventured into Klak’Anon in what was probably my first heavy duty healing experience with him. Up until this point my healing has been restricted to the duo group I have with my wife’s Monk. Needless to say I was a little nervous, especially as we went deeper into the zone and started running into mobs that were still red to me. All in all I think I did quite well and we managed to avoid any major wipes. The one big difference I noticed between Elrahir and Davyydeous is that I really had to pay attention when healing. I couldn’t let my eyes wander at all. Hmmm, maybe that’s not the class for me then. 😉
I also just noticed that I have access to the Legends of Norrath game within EverQuest II, so I’ll try to check that out real soon. Hopefully I don’t get addicted to it and start buying boosters for it.
