for my last post on parsinia, let me show you what makes playtime with the gols worth it - the complete stone workstation conveniently located on site!
if you are in the quarry itself, you need to head to the south end of the quarry and run down the side of the cliff to get to the sws the fast way (you can see the roof of the sws in the second screenie bottom center - it looks like i am standing on it). be careful tho, some of the more adventurous sandstone gols like to come all the way up to the sws and play with the crafters.....
once you have gotten to the bottom of the valley and avoided the gols, you can proceed to the sws.
after crafting, you can either head west to the main road and head to parsinia to port, avoiding the gols on the road (and making sure you cast swift feet to help with that!!) - or you can use my semisecret shortcut to the quarry.
normally, peeps think they have to travel along the cliffs until they come to the entrance to the quarry. well, this way has too many gols for my taste, so i discovered a short cut up the cliffside next to the sws. now, this shortcut is kinda tricky to do the first couple times, but once you get the hang of it, its totally awesome!
first off, you have to use the manual run keys for this, no autorun - if you use autorun, you will never stay still long enough to jump up the 'sweet spot'. so here's the trick: right next to the sws is a upward cliff (as the screenie shows, you want to be facing kinda nne looking up to the quarry area). run up this cliff until you came to an area where is seems you can't go any higher, but near you should be a v shaped area where the cliffs meet. you have to jump for it from here, so hold down the jump (q) key and use your arrow keys to move your alt so that you start to jumprun up the cliff in the middle of the v. a slight jog to the left when you get near the top and you are there!
well, my dears, i think that pretty much covers the sandstone quarry in kion's parsinia settlement. you can gather other tier 1 resources in the same area, some in total safety, but i really only use it for sandstone gathering, as i have other places to gather the other stuff.
my next post will be about the slate gathering in snowfall. so totally simple, will only need one post for that! hope to see you soon!
