The day in istaria was a good one.
Our famous 'advance harvesting' has been removed - now it is not possible to hit the node, teleport somewhere and continue harvesting. I finished several schools with this, but "let bygones be bygones".
Yesterday used some 4000 mithril bars: took Tinkerer school, recycled tools and reached Tinkerer level 31. Then came to harvest slate keystones: some 170 were needed and it took me some time to made them, transport them and add them to Player's D. plot. Then I was able to announce that "slate job at Player's D plot is done".
All that remains is pale essence construction stuff: something I could not craft efficiently. I am level 25 Enchanter with 250 Essence structuring skill and for effective constructing/adding I need some 500 skill. But it did not stop me from helping.
In the middle of the constructing I helped one player to harvest salt. Yes, we do have such resource in Istaria. I was very proud to tell - "teell me what needed to be mined and mined it will be (except tier 6 resources)", And it was true: I can efficiently mine any resource (except top tier ones). It took more time to travel than to mine. Player needed 150 - I mined some 200 and it was over.
Then I returned to my magic essence, continuing to work. Added some stuff to the plot, then continued making...and by the end of the day I advanced by 3 levels, to some lvl.28 only by doing low-level stuff. The result was - one building is nearly finished, I need to add just a little of magic essence...and I have some 500 construction stuff to be added to all other structures. Then, all the plot will be finished by me.
Overall, I was satisfied with the day. Old good days with helping other people are there once again. Soon I will start levelling my combat schools and things will be just as they were before..
