A weekend spent on crafting.
Initially was levelling my Enchanter and then added some pale essence construction stuff to Player's D. plot. Then switched back to Fitter and went to look for the same iron motherload. On the entire world there was only one left (needless to count all the regions I have visited). Only one motherload, on too huge place. Only on Sunday I was told there were 4 (!) motherloads of iron (tier 2 resource)...in too close proximity to tier 6 monster, Istaria's top monster.
Untill then - made very ineffective long runs. However, result is - all iron construction job on Player D. plot is now done. It took me tens of thousands of iron bars, but I made it. Later I switched to cedar and elm construction stuff and have done almost 50% of them. Now Player's D. plot is almost 50% done and all that remains is very grindy and time-taking job. However, I will do it.
Went into long discussion with experienced players about "Spring content", but we can't find any consensus. They want more hardcore, I want more softcore. A pity there was no one who would support me.
Player S. appeared and we talked a bit about "Spring content". She also informed that one very friendly Drgaon - Player C. - is returning to Istaria after some "sleep" period. I am very glad to hear this.
Also, Last Stand is operational and I can finally enjoy its expert structures and public silos.
Also had not-so pleasant talk with one Dragon. He invited me to private chat and asked like "can u fast lvl. me to lvl.13?". I re-asked if he wanted crafting or combat levelling and received answer he needed quick levelling. Since it was not clear what exactly he wanted - I cancelled chat and teleported to one settlement.
Overall, weekend was good. I levelled up (now am Fitter lvl.50), I helped other people's buildings and will help even if I gain no xp for that.
