thanx to the always awesome vice god, i was able to finish 2 of the dragon trainer quests - luadius' accurate breath VII: on the battlefield and the corruption on the battlefield quest, given by kaliphar.
in case you don't remember, luadius the accurate breath trainer is located in cave 2 of the dralk floating crystal island, marked by the red crystal formation. approach the trainer and greet to get the quest (another one that is not covered yet on the wiki page) - in my case, to hunt down 20 scavenger scorpions.
with the help of alan, one of the avatars of blight's beloved vice god, off i went to the battlefield located just outside of aughundell city. these scorps are no joke for a solo fight, but they, and the various other baddies that patrol the fort, had no chance against the awesome power of vg's stress bomb. unfortunately, they are slow to respawn, so we had to wait a while longer than we had hoped to get the required amount.
then, it was on to visit kaliphar, the dragon's gift trainer, located in the cave near the port pad in chiconis, along with wintheria. the quest required me to go to the battlefield deep in the canyons outside of the helian city and hunt tainted spirits, the corrupted remains of dragon hatchlings who died and were converted by the withered aegis. i didn't really need alan's help to defend against anything in this area, but he was having such fun running around and stress bombing everything in sight, that i didn't have the heart to send him on his way!
anyhoo, we went thru the gate and spent a pleasant couple of minutes hunting down the needed tainted spirits. i thanked alan for the assistance and returned to kaliphar for my reward of some xp (useless to me) and some coin (never a useless reward!).
and that is the end of the quests i have completed so far. next time, we will do some beginner quests, just for a change from all the higher level stuff! see you soon!
