I feel so bad, I haven’t blogged in a long while (for me, seeing as I went from blogging almost every day to 1-2 times a week and now nothing). I’ve been stressed. Trying to make time for everything, and give DDO enough time. But, I have been waiting for Cove, and my plans was to run Cove exclusively this time around for the 10 days it’s on. I’m passing on the raids and most of the quests for Cove. We’ll see this weekend, I might end my Cove runs before Sunday night, donno yet.
I started on Cannith with Keronna, getting her a ring and a trinket (the only useful items for a clonk). I’ll upgrade them on Friday. Then a few runs on Orien on our lvl 10’s with my sister (we duo’d with my hire and wolf protecting center, me torching, sis scouting). Then the weekend I did two openings at lvl 18 on Maidae and the rest on Thaz, first running lvl 26’s and then switching to 30. We learned that even with 200 over quota u make 400+ shards, with 300 over quota 500+. Nice amount of shards. Yes, the mobs are a bit tougher at CR30, but it’s supposed to be a challenge, no? 🙂 More than once I ran off down to the bowling room on my own, aggro’d too much stuff, got hit with hamstring and killed. Heh, but who wants to play safe?
This week I’m running Maidae at CR20, and Jarvanna at CR10? Keronna at CR16? and Thaz at CR30. I’ll list my items once I’m done, but so far I’ve upgraded my epic items from last year to tier 3 (buckler, ring, scimitar and gloves), and got the new items to tier 2 (leathers 12 and 20, spyglass 4 and 16, ring 20, etc.), I think I’ll get a scimitar for Jarv as well. On Sunday I’ll trade my gems and doubloons and pick up as many air ellies as I can. 🙂 I’m mostly getting items for Jarvanna and then Cerge and Maidae’s next life (Cerge trapper wizard and Maidae barb).
I’ll post pictures in my next blog.
Ty for reading and have a wonderful day.
P.S. Last year before Cove I had capped Thazara for 20 at lvl 18. After a few runs of CR20 at lvl 18 I decided to level her to 20. At the time I had run all quests elite up to lvl 16, except Spinner of Shadows. During Cove I stepped foot into my first epic, which was Lords of Dust (we didn’t run it, only went in for a chest). I was very intimidated, but I think I did ok. 🙂
