I’ve slowly been leveling my elementalist, and having a pretty good time of it. There’s a few differences of course, she’s MUCH more fragile than my guardian. I’ve had to adjust how to take on encounters (they involve a lot more kiting and a lot less bam in your face) and I’ve had to get more help in doing my personal story. She’s level 23 so far, leveling has been a bit slower than I had expected as well. Of course that probably has more to do with the fact that I’ve also been playing Wurm Online, and EverQuest, and did a dungeon with my 80. There are only so many hours in a day after all!
One thing I did manage to complete was the progress so far in the living story that has been going on. It’s quite interesting, there are refuges all over Shiverpeak looking for help. It was a bonus that I’m a norn and happened to be exploring through that area to begin with. There’s a fantastic guide and general information over at Dulfy.net so I won’t get into the specific details, but needless to say I managed to return all four of the lost refuge items, kill 150 of the invaders, and aid 75 of the refuges by building signs and lighting campfires, oh, and returning lost mementos. You get a title for helping out 75 refuges (volunteer), and you get a child’s drawing in thanks for helping kill 150 invaders. The drawing can be consumed for karma, so I’ve been hanging onto it because next weekend we’ll be using some guild buffs that increase the amount of karma you get when you consume an item. I’ve been stock piling all of my karma items for quite some time now, so I’m excited to see how much I may have saved up. I’ve been hoping to get a nice pile for when the elementalist eventually hits 80 – she will get there, eventually.
Have you completed the living story that is available yet? What did you think of it? Do you enjoy these sorts of little mini quests? Let me know in comments! As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
