Yesterday and a part of today were just heavy crafting days. I got some 3 levels today by harvesting all Yew I could find. Result were very good and I held on, logging just 3 minutes before server shut down. Everyone believes some positive "glitch" would be removed. Now I am level 93 Carpenter and after updates I will definetely be lvl.94. Of course, those 6 levels will be hard and slow, but I will make it, no doubt.
I managed to help Player S. with her quests to kill some monsters. Resurrected her several times, helped in combat...and as reqard - I saw her Ascension to Adult dragons. As always, it was a spectacular event to see.
We have also discussed some things about Istaria's life and how the game could/should be improved. The problem is, these thoughts will not be heared.
And now - to The Heresy.
I am startinbg to think about finding another game. At the same time, my expectations may be too much: PvE, f2p (Istaria model of marketing only, no mico-transaction, no item shop), player-driven economy, multiclassing, non-cartoonish look (no anime!), lots of quests...and this game should be softcore (i.e. easy to level up).
Why? Just because I want relax when I play my Human Cleric or Carpenter. I want to craft, to see my levels grow, to help others, to explore the world. Or just to walk within icy deserts looking at old-forgotten statues.
I know it's heresy as well I know I would not leave Istaria. But the thoughts remain.
