so, as i was saying....
a kind friend helped out this eternal noob once again by telling me about the bright field in feladan. feladan is the elven racial city, and a place i had not explored outside of the city proper (and little enough of that), but i was told the brights are fairly extensive (for that tier of resource, anyway) and only guarded by enraged bright wisps. only a couple of those spawn at a time, as opposed to treants.
the city itself is rather nicely set up, especially for bright work. the shrine is centrally located, enabling easy recall back with access to all needed facilities. these include a vault up the stairs from the ews. thru the walls to the left of the shrine, you find 2 outgoing ports: one that goes to the major destinations and one that goes to the secondary (settlements, guilds, etc) ports.
i have already showed you how to harvest, now let me show you the field guardian. taking on level 70+ maple treants was a real hardship - here in feladan, i can take on level 75+ enraged wisps literally nekkid and practically with my bare hands!
and that is pretty much it for bright harvesting and construction. not sure what my next post(s) will be about, maybe the just past summer festival (which i missed most of) and the new fall/winter festival, or perhaps about more construction. either way, see you soon!
