Ogre Odyssey

Last night we had originally planned to spend a leisurely evening killing some storms but Lore’s new Mystic, Crystalshade, was still in Sundered Splitpaw and she needed one more quest to get the glowing shard that would allow her to teleport back. So I started the storm killing with Klubya while she headed in to try and complete the solo quest in the Arena. Unfortunately, she’s never been a great soloer and hasn’t really gotten a handle on the Mystic yet so she was unable to take down the multiple encounter.

After killing off one last storm Klubya gated back and we decided to tackle the hideout mission again since it was the quickest that we had done. This basically involves going into an instance, slaughtering gnolls – any day you can slaughter gnolls is a good day as for as Klubya is concerned – then using the ever present explosive barrels to blow up their supplies. 30 minutes later we had blown up the last of their supply crates, woot, done lets get out of here…oh wait, it didn’t count for her shard?!?.

A cast of 1000’s

If I’m going to start posting more about my adventures in the various games I guess I should give a quick rundown of my various characters.

Everquest 1:

Bjoern – Level 30ish Dwarven Berserker created to play with the Tuesday night Nostagia group. No last name yet but I’m thinking of something like Ta’Rock.

 

Soaridor – Level 53 Drakin Mage created to check out the new race and, due to the increased speed of leveling, ended up joining the Friday night Nostalgia group. Currently replaced by Sisca but I may start alternating depending on the needs of the group.

 

Sisca Mainacier – Level 56 Human Monk, this was my original character in EQ, created back in October of 1999. I recently moved him over from The Tribunal when Nostalgia was working on Vox/Naggy. While I thought the tactic we came up with for Mage pulling Naggy was cool – basically the druid would cast her translocate spell on Soaridor and I’d run in and aggro the lair and get them to just outside then accept the TL to clear agro then gate back to the where I had bound just outside the throne room – I thought having a monk around would be more efficient. Besides, Sisca was still 51 since I’d held him there for the express purpose of pulling Vox. Got him to 56 so far but after the trip to Old Sebilis last week I’m thinking that depending on who’s available and where we go Soaridor’s DPS might be more beneficial at times so I may start platooning them.

The WoW is gone.

Last night I spent some time making sure all of my various alt’s in WoW have emptied their mailboxes in preparation for canceling my account.

Around May I started to get bored, as did Lore I think, and we sort of put the group on hold for awhile. Both Lore and I have hunters that are at 67 and the temptation is there to make that last push to 70 but she said she just couldn’t muster the energy and she has a much higher tolerance for these things than I do – every time I consider it my head starts hurting.

So today it ends.

I may be back at some point but I have to say that nothing I’ve seen coming out of WotLK is making me think that will be what brings me back.

Site update.

I’ve been planning for weeks now to start posting more I’ve just been trying to figure out what direction I wanted to take the site.

I think that I’ve finally decided that I’m mainly going to use it to post on my current experiences in my various MMO’s along with the occasional opinion piece. I’ll probably be changing the categories to reflect this over the next several days.

I’ve also changed the site theme because I’m no longer playing WoW (more on that later) but I’m not completely happy with the new one so there may be more updates later.

Now if I can just convince the wife to chip in with her point of view we might get something going here.
