This blog is about my character's life in Midkemia Online
Last time, I told you I'd explain a bit about the Gods in Midkemia Online buuuut that might have to wait until the next posting again. I've been a little hooked up to write up my material on the Gods and you can't go about risking the wrath of the Divine by writing sub-par stuff about 'em. Greek mythology teaches us that Zeus had a very trigger happy ...erm, lightning happy attitude when it came to mortals not treating him and the others with the proper respect.
So why have I been hooked up? Well, there's been a weekly contest going on and this week's contest is an experience challenge. The basic premise is that, at the end of the week, who gained the most experience WINS. What do they win? Well, they win an honors line and credits. Honors lines are nifty little things that show your character's accomplishment and such. They are usually very hard to earn.
Yep, that's me in second place. We're just gonna disregard the fellow above and say I'm first!
Well it doesn't matter if I don't win, I just wanna be ranked as high up as possible. The first 10 spots get credits also and credits are a form of currency used to buy awesome stuff! More about those some other time.
We've had challenges all month, similar things: experience contests or mob kills contests. Now I know 1 week for a challenge is a lot, but there's often shorter contests too, like 2 days or 3, or short timed events.
Oh, BUT, the point I'm trying to make is that there's ALWAYS some sort of monthly stuff going on. Every month, at the start of it, we get a new "monthly promotion" so to speak, which range from double experience days to special daily bonuses or login bonuses to Great Hunts and special offers. It's the sort of small touch which shows that the administration cares and is always willing to go that extra mile to keep their players interested. The promotions are rarely repeated and they are always interesting or nifty. Now, there's less than a week until April and I'm already curious about what we're getting next month.
Yeah, so, not really sure if I'm going to win it, probably not, but, it's a great opportunity for me to aaaaaalmost reach level 100. Oh, there's no level cap in this game, but people usually consider level 100 as the highest. There's not many people OVER it, since it is very very very very hard to level past that point and it's quite hard to get to 100 in the first place. But, since there's this event thingie going on, with rewards, I can use some Double Experience artifacts to boost my leveling and then compensate their cost with the event's winnings. Nifty, huh?
Well, I'll see you all tomorrow(ish), when hopefully I'll be taking a break from all the monster killing in Midkemia Online!
