My combat and crafting adventures in Istaria continues.
I spent almost all time I had with levelling Shaman. Starting with level 60, I soon became lvl.61 and then it was a time to visit Trophie hunter in Dralk. My not so large set of trophies meant I advance almost to lvl.62. Then did one quest for Dralk Town Marshal. it was about killing 10 Obsidian golems and the reward was some 11 silver coins...but no xp. I went to one place I knew I would receive quest...but the quest was too short: I clicked on it and it was complete.
Then I returned to my favourite Sand Scarabs and their elder brothers - Sand Scarab Harvesters, all lvl. 70-79. It was fun to level killing them: Sand scarabs give good xp (some 2000 points for Scarab and 7000-8500 points for Harvester), drop trophies and sellable items. I have a total of some 350 their trophies collected: would be a nice thing to exchange it into xp and coins.
However, levelling this way is slow. 8000 xp is good, but one level means some 350-400.000 xp. Tried to level on Mithril golems (lvl.91), but this was no good - hard to kill and only 9000 xp to get. Finally, asked Player S. to help me with fighting.
We went to Eastern Deadlands and tried to kill lvl.118-120 Fiyakis. They offered some 12.000 xp and initially everything was good. Later problems began. We noticed one Dragon near us. Well, it's not a problem, Deadlands are big and there are enough Fiyakis for everyone. However, Dragon asked/demanded us to relocate "to the other side of the wall". We did, knowing it was dangerous for us. Result: Player S. killed one time, escaped one time; I killed two times and third time I just quit. However, that Dragon was not satisfied almost commanding us to leave. It was my first time I met an unfriendly Dragon. After all, Deadlands are big, there are enough enemies for everyone and we were staying at a relatively safe place. We left, however.
I gained xp within this rather short hunt and yesterday became Shaman lvl.65. Now i have some 5 levels to go...and then all Sand Scarabs trophies will jet-level me to lvl.75.
To rest, I made some crafting. Guildhouse in Bristugo was finished, so I just constructed Saris Tiny Hut: a house in Saris style. Finishing this, I thought my construction was over. Well, it wasn't.
Plot in Bristugo with vault and consigner was gone: as far as I remember it was owned by the same not too friendly Dragon I met in Deadlands. Now plots have no owner at all. The main problem is, that Vault has gone. it slows down my construction operations - therefore I went to aid to Player's T. vault.
It took almost all day of running, harvesting resources, making stuff from them, sometimes changing school and reverting changes...But at the end of the day the Vault was almost finished. All that remains is "Vault hiring permit" that is sold for some 125 silver coins (and I do expect owner to buy it...). Profit: advanced Enchanter by some 1,5 levels.
Then I felt just tired from killing and adding materials. Went to New Trismus just to rest, killing level 3 Grulets and watching new players. Offered my help to some lvl. 7-9 players, but they said they did not need it. Well, I hope they will ask me if they need any support, be it armor, weapons, tools, combat support or just advice.
Weekend was great one. Shaman grows up, crafting grows up, I am usefull to other people and I just having fun in Istaria.
