Once again - some hunts. As usual, I went to my own Sand scarabs to get some xp and for some trophies. Xp from them was not very high, only some 8000 for lvl.75 and some 3000 for lvl.71-73. I spoke with the folks at the forum, they adviced to hunt Fire opal golems (lvl.90s) for more xp. Went to these...and gained only 9000 xp. It's only a bit more than for lower level Scarab. It may be some (beneficial) bug.
Player S. wanted me to help her "to get some 50 crystals for my hatchie" which I refused. I was able to get these crystals for her (another) hatchling within 1 or 2 days. Being lvl.100 Dragon, she should be able to do this alone.
Later I resumed killing Scarabs and reached lvl.56. Then, exchanged trophies and reached lvl.57. After that went to kill Cobalt golems for trophies. Was approached by one player who offered one epic weapon. However, I already had this -our leader once gave it to me when I was just a low-level character. However, this approach may be typical for Istaria.
Wanted to help someone - but no one needed my help, be it crafting or fighting. A pity.
Not so bright sides: game tend to crash, especially when recalling/teleporting. It's not for me only, other players complained too. Another not so bright side - game forums. I left them after planned downgrades and had to log recently. Well, nothing changed - just player ranting goes on.
I do await level 61 - since then, I could use some trophies and advance, at least to lvl.80, quickly.
