15 levels until 80 and may get there in less then a week if I keep up the pace! Looks like some of the bugs are ironed out and the tradeing system has been a blessing! I gained 5 levels just in crafting alone! This wasn’t all at one time though. To be honest I wasn’t paying attention to how i was leveling up until tonight when I doing some jewel crafting. Every time you go up a level in crafting you get XP for your character. Some recipies i found on my own were leveling me up 3 levels and I went from 180 to 280 in less then 30 minutes! I had so many stones that instead of trying to figure make one of each i realised that people prefer rings so i made one of each stone recipe and then massed produced that particular stones ring. Lets just say i made 3.25 gold today but spent 2.75 in mats alone! That is what i spend on average evey time i go back to lions arche to work on crafting.
My routine is simple actually. I do a whole zone based on my level. I just finised one that was for 50-65 and surpised I was able to do it since there was less fighting and felt I cheated my way up in that zone. After that I would craft until I was bored or felt i needed to save some money to transport to the next zone to clear up. After that i do a few of my storylines until i am too low of a level to continue. After that i am back to the beginging which is clearing a new zone. Somehow this process is pretty efficient and i get to learn a lot about the game.
I am learning more every day and learn some interesting things. One thing i learned is people are very impatient! This one zone i cleared recently I kept seeing people asking about a dragon? I never encountered this dragon yet and don’t really care to stay around to see it but I sware this one person kept asking every 15 minutes if it arrived yet? Got quite annoying. I love world events but don’t sit idle to do a particular one. If you are that bored then go to another zone and help out.
I also learned that vistas and POI’s are harder to find in higher level areas. Either they are hidden or they trick you on the pathways. While they pathways may be tricky you get to find some neat items such as ores and food ingredients. Pretty rewarding i may say.
Ok I bet by now you are wondering about my storline? Well here is how to goes now.
“I did some investigating in the disapearance of poeople in lions arche. It seems like some undead have breached the parimeter but they were no real threat. The big threat was at claw island where an army of undead soldiers attacked our front lines. We did our best to react but lost the island and was forced to flee. We regrouped at fort marriner to cook up a stratagy. It seems we need to get all the orders together to fight off the dragons but all the leaders can’t get along with each other. They need to realize we all have a common foe and need to join forces. We split our team up to talk to the other orders. I personally went to talk to the Durmand Priory because i knew i could convince them to join. After some time we finnaly got the other orders to join us to reclaim claw island. It was big battle and a lot were lost but we won and defeated the dragon! This is not over yet. Now that we know our strength we feel it’s time to fight Zhaitan in his own realm. It’s a matter of time getting there with enough resources to get the job done right and bring peace back to the land!”
I am really not good at story telling but that is the best I can do. I love how smooth leveling is going and can’t wait to see how the story ends! I know I will be doing the story over again once I start my ranger but it will be told a totaly different way and I will probally choose a different route this time if i choose properly. She may be charr but can easily adapt to other cultures and change her ways. That is another story.
