I think I could be found more often in the leafy maple woods near Morning Light than in the battlefield, killing all opposition around. It may be kind of bad, but the fact is: if I want to make wooden weapons for my future battle classes and if I want to wear a universall all-class armor, I have to be at least lvl.91 Fletcher.
So, woods once again. Gathering full load...and then running begins. In Istaria, there are some free teleporters: if you get there, teleport almost anywhere for free. But if you have cargo disk with any item in it - you have to pay. Therefore (call me greedy!) I left cargo disk near teleporter, transferred as much as I could to my backpack, unloaded it, then back to cargo disk...untill I was finished. It usually takes some 6 runs. After that - returning to harvest maple again.
The problem was, there were no wood reaping potions and I was left to mine maple very inefficiently. Example: 1 wood gave me some 70 logs without potion and some 150 logs with potion. The faster I advance, the better, therefore asked in chat that if someone can make these potions - I would like at least 20. (it wasfunny typo when I typed "220" instead of "20"...).
Dragon, that we hunted sand beetles, came and at once - "Nak, come to me to hunt some mobs". It was first time I refused help. I lied. I told I was busy with maple and then I would harvest some sandstone for our guild plot and after that I would be for maple again. It was a lie: if anyone, except him, would have asked for help - I would gladly come.
I used to think that Dragon was a clone of our famous Player A. - but thought it may be paranoia. Well, yesterday I told him Dragons have so many quests and asked if he had played biped. The answer was: yes, you know him, it's Player A. I explained that Dragons have so many quests and fun and that quests may be fun - if one (like me in the past) would dpend on heavy trophy-hunting, he won't have much fun. So, for now Player A. has at least 2 'clones'. Just now he is a bit less commanding, although words like "could you..." or "please" are not common for him. I explained him he may want to take quests, they (quests) are cool and he should not miss them, especially Dragon.
So, instead of helping him, I went to harvest sandstone and added >150 items to our guild plot in Bristugo. Almost all sandstone is done there, I may add only slate items...and then my help there would be finished. At least something good that I have done to my won Guild's behalf.
One player came and asked if I could make armor. Alas, I can't make it yet - it requires Armorer and all I can do is some lame Bronze helmet. Ok, told me player, can you make it with Two hand slash I technology? It later became clear I could not. All I could do was adding place for crystal which wasn't that bad (though crystals start at lvl.20)...but player said no.
At the end of the day I advanced some lvl.56, if I am not wrong in Fletcher school. It proves that 2 full loads equals to 2-2,5 crafting levels. At level 60, I could add some crystals to my tools to improve everything. Player S. came, asked to help her in finding certain Dragon lair. I went there...but it was almost midnight and she disappeared and I wanted to have some sleep.
Overall, day was kind of success. The only thing that bothers me is that I am refusing help to Player A. It is not good, but if I agree, I would not have time for anything - only helping him to have more and more trophies. I look forward for weekend - maybe I would reach that lvl.91 at the end of the week.
