MMORPG.com Jade Dynasty Correspondent Olorunsegun Adewumi continues his report on his experiences in Perfect World Entertainment's F2P MMO.
Jade Dynasty had a double experience weekend from Thursday, September 3rd at 10 p.m. (Pacific PST) to Monday, September 7th at 10 p.m. (PST), since the last marathon session worked so well I decided to try it again. Levels have been hard to come by since I hit sixty and you really can't argue with double experience. I managed to gain five levels while finding out a few things that might have made leveling much easier before, more on that later.
I'd been doing most of my fighting in Skysong and Billows the last few weeks because it was just easier to do so. However, with the double exp I figured it was time to stop lollygagging around and go to Doom Bog, and am I glad I did. Doom Bogs' town is Brigand's Keep. It's a small wooden area on stilts over a large marshy area, with two upper bridges leading off to two small areas. It also has two renewable quests, gotten from Physician Berezi, which count the amount of kills you have for each creature. So once you've done all the quests lying around rather than hike back to town to refresh your list, you can keep fighting mobs for extra experience points. While that might not seem like a lot, anyone who has ever charted the fastest and best ways to get and turn in daily quests in WoW can see the innovation. Rather than having to waste time turning in quests back and forth, one can stay out in the wilderness indefinitely, or at least till your pot supply runs out. And if you haven't done daily quests runs in WoW then trust me, the faint irritation of traveling back and forth for quests is magnified tenfold when you've reached 80 and you're doing daily quest runs for the hundredth time.
