Barkscratch : Ding 12. Ran down to Tahean’s Vengeance. This is a little town on a lake I had previously visited just to finish a quest. It’s now a good level for me to adventure at, and I started knocking out quests in the area.
And server lag was a big big problem tonight. I kept getting booted back to the character select screen. The problem crash was when I was in the middle of a dangerous area full of gnolls, requiring me to summon my corpse back to the altar I respawned at.
And my greatstaff was missing………
I repaired my mysterious missing greatstaff, and still couldn’t equip it. Eventually I rebooted the PC, restarted the game, and lo and behold there’s my staff. Strange bug.
Got into a very deadly group in the troll caves west of Tahean’s Vengeance. Slaughtered troll after troll, and skinned my way to 200 skinning skill on their corpses. Now if I can just find enough cotton to get reaping all the way up.
One new factoid – I need all the harvesting tools after all. When my groupmates were harvesting stones, I tried to help and got a message “you have no tool”.
And this, even though I’ve barely scratched the surface of this game. What fun ! I will be buying it once I can’t log in anymore. Unless I counted wrong I’m actually into day 11 at this point but still in the game.
