Today I am ill. Somke 38 temperature - lying at home, no play. Therefore - all weekend adventures in very short manner.
Hunt. Yes, hunted for components. Decided to ask one player to make me armor for Gatherer, using tier 5 technologies. That meant lots of grinding. Yew treants refusing to give me components. Yew sapplings doing the same. Finally, rare Massive Yew treants initially refusing to give components too. It helped me to regain at least some confidence and cool down a bit.
Support. Was helped by one very friendly Dragon in hunting of Gloomwolves. Later he was very kind to guve me his own Gloomwolves fangs. He needed them, but gave to me.
Armor. Finally, got it - every status increased, now I can harvest Yew at almost optimal level.
Craft. Goes very well. Ratio is optimal, experience increased by some 50%: if I needed two silos of maple for one level - now I need only one.
And of course I was wrong about developers (see my post concerning Granite). No, they did not remove Granite and they did ruin stone-based schools. As people say, Mea culpa...
Today went to the game only to tell that I won't be active there and that I did not have trophies one player requested. Soon, our famous Player A. appeared and directly to the business: "Nakties, I need your help with tier 2 trophy hunting". I refused, asking him to re-read my two sentences where I mentioned I was ill.
No idea when I will update this blog :-/
