      • U29, sched for dec, is expected to increase character levels to 30.  Think you’ll be able to TR before then, so you can TR at 28 instead of 30?
        • All TR all the time!!!  Before December! YES.
        • And play in a ‘best’ destiny.
        • My plan!  Do some solo questing prior to our questing to help fill up my karma sphere so I don’t have to worry about changing to an off destiny when we do EE stuff.  Cause I get chopped up a lot by champions.
  • Rumors and News
    • Night Revels –
      • what did you think?

          • Key drops seemed to be hit and miss, even in a party for me.
            • Thank you monster manual for all the Lich’s, Ghouls, Mummy’s, and Wrath’s!

The main difference being that in discussing Heroic/Epic, we are talking about both content and character levels, while in Legendary we’re talking about content.”

This is the actual lock screen for Lessah’s phone. If you have not seen Psycho Pass, what are you doing with your life?!

Detour

We went to the High Road. Why is it named the High Road? It doesn’t exactly look high to me. I didn’t really see any big mountains either. I think whoever has the job of naming streets over here in Eveningstar needs to put a little more thought into it. Like, the Lazy Harper Road or the Fraidy Cat Harper Road. Those seem a little more appropriate for that place. So anyway, we went and met up with one of the afore mentioned lazy harpers or maybe he was just a fraidy cat, I’m not really sure but we had to escort him to a farmhouse so he could hide a fragment of the Nether Scroll he found in there and every time he decided he would help us a little bit (a very little bit) his hold spell worked beautifully. So, I’m sure the rest of his spells would have packed a punch as well.

We were told that when we got to the farmhouse there would be a wizard there to help with this powerfully magicked piece of scroll. I guess you have to do something special to hide something like this. When we got there he was there but helping us was about the last thing on his mind. We ended up having to kill this dude and his pets too. Honestly, I don’t think we needed help to put this little scrap into a chest anyway. What were they thinking? I think the less people knowing about it the better. I guess it isn’t our problem anymore.

 

Loot

loot range from level 16 to 25

ML25: +7 Orb Bonus, †Random Spell Power 120, Spell Focus II, Spell Penetration III, Elemental Absorption 10%

Random Spell Power: Combustion, Corrosion, Glaciation, Impulse, or Magnetism.

ML25: Striding +30%, Ghostly, Dexterity +8, Insightful Dexterity +3

After that we went and barreled through the Multitude of Menace cuz Sahba wants some stuff from there and lo and behold she got one!! It was some kind of dagger and I’m sure she wants to tell us all about it. She was very very happy.

Fighting the end boss was easier than the encounters on the road. The High Road is my favorite quest chain in the Eveningstar.  So the next couple of gaming sessions are going to be fun for me.  We just have to make sure Myth doesn’t pull too many peeping tom acts while Sahba is a sneaking.
