This solo anniversary quest has been my downfall since it released on Wednesday. See, there’s a collector located in Sunrise Hills in a bright red robe, and he needs your help finding these magical shards (collection bits) that are scattered throughout the zone. The reward is a fairly nice augment that you can add to your gear. The problem is there’s a number of them you need to find, and they are in categories ranging from common to ultra rare. There are five more I need to find and these things are incredibly tiny not to mention rare. If you happen to be in a housing zone that involves another player (or two) then forget it. The best thing you can do is move on to another place with less people.
Thankfully the items are tradeable between characters and will still update the quest, so if you’re looking to trade pieces be sure to advertise on the channels.
Yesterday was a day for alts. I’ve been leveling a shadowknight and bard together (along with some mercs) and managed to get the bard from 34-50 and the shadowknight from 45 to 53. Not too shabby considering there’s no bonus experience going on right now. Most of the time was spent in Howling Stones, which is a bonus xp zone. I’m looking forward to hitting 60 on both characters (or any number of my alts) so that I can group up with level 90′s and still gain experience.
I hope everyone has an amazing weekend, no matter where you find yourself! I’ll see you in Norrath.
