My coercer (one of three level 90 enchanters that I have) is pretty behind in aa. I’ve neglected a few of my characters over the years, leveling them up and then barely playing them. Yesterday I was in the mood to play her so I spent some time hanging out with the guild while we did a few older dungeons as a trio, and then headed off to a PQ (public quest) or two to try to get myself some upgrades. It was a good thing I did, too. I ended up winning the breast plate from the very first PQ I did (the fabled one) and it was an enormous upgrade. I browsed the broker and picked up a few pieces of gear that were relatively cheap (a plat or two here and there) and by the time my day was done I’d gone from having 16,000 hp to some where upwards of 22,000 which is still relatively low but much better then I was at. I also managed to get my critical mitigation to 70%, and I need that stat much higher as well but again it’s a start.
The guild trio’d a few Sentinel’s Fate zones, library and research halls, it was good for coin and transmutables. I was concerned that we wouldn’t be able to trio research halls, but we did just fine. I played the coercer, and was joined by Ibeogur (berserker) and Noc (inquisitor). We had a good time, and it felt nice to be playing again.
It’s been a little while since I’ve devoted any serious time to EQ2, and I don’t have the faintest idea what dungeons are like in DoV. In fact I’ve barely done anything at all in DoV, aside from working on the flying mount quests and a few crafting quests here and there. I’m excited to get back into things – and lets not forget that the Festival of Unity starts very soon on the Antonia Bayle server. I’ve gone every year since they’ve hosted it, and this year will be no different. It’s one of the largest player run events in EQ2, and if you haven’t checked it out before I highly recommend it.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
