At the begining there was a medium fight, just to gain one level. Killing all Sand Scarabs in sight, gathering trophies. Then - magic level 45 The one I gathered about 350 trophies to exchange into experience - mostly Granite golems (300), to lesser extent - some wolves and other golems.
And then it was jet-levelling. I managed to reach lvl.49 with trophies only. Then, just came to my own Scarabs, killed some of them and reached level 50. All this - in one lucky day.
I grew stronger. Learned new abilities, including famous one that attempts to dispell any positive buffs on enemy. Also, we discussed Shaman tactic on Universal Soldiers chat. I told that in my own view - Shaman depends on weakening and debuffing enemy, making it bleed before actual combat; when it comes to melee combat, Shaman just finishes enemy off. This view was confirmed by most experienced player in Istaria.
And then I decided just to take a break from killing. Lucky for me, one Dragon wants to expand his lair, building new structures and he will need lots of resources. For example, some components for 7 storage silos would require 2400 sandstone bricks.
It was a chance for me to start relaxing. I made some 1000 sandstone bricks and have just to store them in some silo so that Dragon may take them. This is my chance to be usefull to others.
I did enjoy yesterday in Istaria. Great day, good achievements - and I hope today would be great too.
