Week of Leveling

with 7 comments

I introduced my noob healer in two previous posts but never really talked about him again. With the double experience week well under way and with Mage.Awesome almost fully geared up, I’ve decided to advance Doc.Awesome to 60.

I’ve spent about three hours in total leveling him, starting at 24. For the first two hours, I quested with 50% XP pots enabled, getting me from 24-30. For the last hour I decided to double down on XP pots and power level him at the Elves near Bulrinto Outpost. Despite the crowds, I raised him 6 levels to 36. So it turns out that power leveling Doc.Awesome with both XP pots was over 2x as effective as questing, and I made my fair share of gold in the process.

So cheers to double XP week, ladies and gentlemen!

Red Line Collection

with one comment

Ever encounter mysterious red lines in the remote areas of Haradon? While I don’t know their purpose, I get pretty stoked when I find them. Please leave a comment if you know of others!

“Don’t buy from the AH…” -GL

with 4 comments

Sorry to get all O&C Problems on you guys, but check out this great post from the forum mods:

There’s a known bug about AH. It’s possible that the seller who auctioned that General Symbols abused the bug and you are his victim.

A personal suggestion: Don’t buy from AH if the price is too good to be true.

I’ll be forwarding your report to our customer care department. You will be contacted through your registered forum e-mail.

So, so lame. Another example: a dedicated player and guild friend got screwed when buying an HF of Sorcery from the AH. Only after purchasing the item did he realize that it had 0 for all the stats. Customer Care did nothing, of course.

Hopefully this gets resolved.

Loot from RKL Clears

with 2 comments

I couldn’t pull together an impromptu guild run at lunch today, so I decided to farm RKL. In five successful clears*, I looted a [Heartforger of Fire] and a [Handbook: Furious Holy Punisher’s Shoes]. While they’re nearly the worst of each type (HF and recipe), it was still fun and challenging.

* Update: and probably ten failures
