Today Kahlef finally got both his Earring of Solstice and Blessed Coldain Prayer Shawl. I was going to wait until the next Game Update (which should be arriving tomorrow) to get the rares necessary for them but decided to give do it today instead.
Why I was waiting for the update? Well, there will be a new AA tab that, among other things, will have an AA to increase your chances of getting rares. Since I have very little patience for harvesting that seemed like it would be a good reason to try that new AA and see if it really makes a difference.
However, Gracee, my guild leader on Crushbone, offered to help me with a few rares so I decided to accept it and then pay her back later. She also helped me by crafting some of the stuff I needed for both quests and the rest was made by Jaylah and her awesome army of crafters. To both of them, my deepest thanks. 😀
Now only a few more factions to get then gotta raise his tinkering and he should be self-suficient in all things decoration. 🙂
The Antonia Bayle server has always been my home in EQ2 since my start in the game. That is where almost all my characters are and where I do events and other stuff first. A while ago, however, I made a character in the Crushbone server to help a friend to create a guild over there. She offered to let me stay in the guild if I wanted to, without any pressure whatsoever to play in the Crushbone server. After thinking for a bit I decided to accept her invitation for those times when stuff in Antonia Bayle was just too much.
Unfortunately the character has been very neglected since his creation. Only during this double XP weekend he got some very needed love which resulted in him reaching level 90 as a carpenter. Even that was only because I've been putting my decoration projects on hold until the update with the new crafted tiles and signs comes to live. I guess my itchy to make a pirate ship for the little guy over in Crushbone helped too....
There is still a lot to do with him though. Factions to get, quests to do for furniture, advanced recipes to hunt down, etc, etc. At least the hardest part, getting to 90, was accomplished. He also happens to be my 5th crafter to reach the level cap, which means I finally have a 100% XP bonus to all my other crafters now. 🙂
