now, where did i leave off?  o, yes, attuned to sable shores.  next stop, bristugo.

so, i didn't say anything earlier, but sometimes when i don't go to the live shards in a while and i forget to clear the cache when i log in, i develop glitches in the landscape.  on the way to the bridge, i came upon one of these 'blank spots'.  lov could see me, in fact was standing right next to me, but i couldn't see her.  only a grey mist and the roots of trees.  in fact, i fell into a hole in the scenery and came to rest way below my shepherd dog pet, which i could see - only just - far, far above me.  i relogged and everything was fine.

until i started on my run to bristugo.  when the glitch happened again, i decided to use my map to get to brist - just keep myself on the road and let lov handle whatever tried to stop me.  as i was busy running and trying to avoid said baddies, i neglected to get screenies; however, if you want to watch the run - and the rest of the bizniz of attunement to brist - you can see it here.  be aware that the total video is 11 minutes long.

thanx to my much loved babysitter, i did make it safely to brist - to be greeted by the sight of someone's lair being naked to view - obviously not something you see everyday!  the grey mist makes it hard to judge the elevation of things, but to get to the house where sergeant bramdin jonis waits to attune you, you need to head down past the fort and head to the left, across from the shrine.  find bramdin in the porch and greet him to access his quest list.  choose the attunement quest, and regreet the sergeant to gain that much used and needed access to the portal hub.  then, before you head back up the road to the portals, make sure you head across the street and bind to the shrine.  unless you need to return to some place for a quest or convenience, i would keep bristugo as your bound shrine.  it's so very convenient for travelling, especially since it is free to travel to from a lot of places, and half price at the rest.

once all that bizniz was finished, lov took me to the winter season of the resort island of new koraelia.  way back in the day, the next stop from the tutorial islands was one of the 'training islands'.  of the 4 of these, only new trismus is still used as the training island.  the other 3 - new vassarak, new brommel, and 2 areas of new koraelia (winter season for gnomekindle events and summer season for the pax istaria events) - were turned into 'resort' islands, to visit and play and have picnic parties.  there are no plots on the islands, but i do believe the workstations are still there, as all the critters and resources are still in place. 

anyhoo, on the new kora winter season, as i have covered before for other gnomekindles, is where you find the seasonal quests (which are available, to a certain extent), but most importantly for us, are the cashiers.  when you manage to defeat a present, one of the possible drops are colored ornaments.  you exchange the correctly colored ornament to the cashier, and you get swag.  to get to new kora, lov took me thru genevia island portal out of bristugo, then thru the portal there for the resort islands.  make sure you choose 'new koraelia - winter season' destination. thankfully, the glitch cleared up and i got a small fright, when lov's pet prezzie appeared behind me and i thought a prezzie had followed us thru the portal and was attacking.  ah, good times.  if you want to watch them, the 8.5 minutes video is here.

 

that's enough for right now.  next time, we will head to lov's plot and take a look at some of the new decorations for the hours of frost winter event.  hope to see you then!
