Well i know haven’t posted in sometime, i have been very busy with real life and haven’t been with in my Virutal home that much.

As most everyone by this point knows that SOE Everquest 2 has released their lastest update “Halas Reborn”, I too was able to log in very breifly and was able to create a new toon starting in this area, i made a Barbarian Guardian names Oleaxu, so far the quest are just like any starting area, go kill X amount of “CREATURE ADDED HERE” and come back for your reward, Even though they are the standard quest i still find it thrilling that there is a new area as well as new content, the storyteller mode is a bit confusing and i am still trying to figure this out myself, and the i also logged in and obtained my little frost kitty, too bad we cant use the little fur ball for combat.

Speaking of Kittys, i entered a contest over at Ten Ton Hammers website on “Loading….”, the contest was to win a free Prowler mount yest thats right the New Prowler Mounts that are currently on sale on the Marketplace for $25.00 real dollars…i could not pass the contest up after all all you had to do was send a email to a specific Ten Ton Hammer email that they listed with the subject line “Gimme me a Prowlerrrrrr!! and they would draw the winners on Memorial day, well i submitted my email on the Thursday before, and i totally forgot about entering this contest, so i logged into my email on Tuesday because i was camping all weekend for the holiday because thats what we do at this time of the year..lol

But to make a long story even longer, i logged into the email and there was a email from Ten Ton Hammer…CONGRATULATION YOU WON A PROWLER….I thought i was going to fall out of my chair at that point. So i was one of the 5 winners of the contest i was provided a code to redeem which i did already and i am now the proud father of a Prowler Mount which costed me nothing but a email….woot woot

I am still fine tuning my newest toon in the Halas area, i will be reporting more on their adventures as we progress.

So far from what i have seen of this new content it is great, the area looks great, the house items are fabolus, the City festival is currently in New Halas on my server and i have picked up some great items for my house, however i am now going to buy a bigger home.

Well thats all i have to report on for this time,  i will be adding some photos to this post this evening.

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!

Well my weekend gaming was not so much fun filled, Friday night i was breifly in the game due to falling asleep early after taking my new meds, still not quite adjusted to them yet.

Saturday i was just too busy to get any real game time in, i was up at 1030 getting rdy to go get fitted for a Tux for Corliss’s (RL Firend in game) wedding which i am part of, after that came home and did some house work and then took the kids to dinner and a movie, by the time we returned home and had the kids in bed it was past midnight and i was having problems keeping my eyes open.

Sunday again had many things planned out thru the day, did finish those up around 3 but i again fell asleep on the couch and woke up and started to cook dinner. Once dinner was finished the dishes were done it was time to relax, wife was on the couch, and i at my computer chair, wondering if i was going to get yelled at fro logging in too early.

Anyways i finally got into game around 830pm on Sunday and finished alot of quest in the sundering frontier, in the panda village, i finished all the quest that were offered to me, i have confirmed this with http://Eq2i.Wika.com i received alot nice house items, and was able to purchase a few nice pieces of jewerly from the panda merchant which boosted my HP over 13K. My Faction with the pandas is at 33K not bad for a few hours of work.

I am also in need of help on a quest that i didnt finish that co-insides with JOJO on Kerra isle, thats the only quest with the pandas i didnt finish and its linked back to kerra isle, its where i need a partner to pick the walking roots, someone has to be in the cave and i have to be on top of the cave and we both click ont he root at the same time to get the update, yeah this is a pain, i can never find anyone to help…Still looking in case anyone wants to help shoot me a tell on crushbone server.

Cinderbella, did hit lvl 85 last night and i also spent about 50 plat in rares so chubby could make some combat art upgrades to Adept III.

I love the new expansion, there is so much to too, i still have a few quest left in TSF, and then i am heading back to Stonebrunt Frontier to work on some there, also Cinderbella is at a tradeskille lvl of 61 and has to be moved up sooon, then i can start all over with Chubby working his way thru SF expansion. This i can actully say is one expansion that i cannot get tired of.

I do want to send a shout out to Twixt on Crushbone server in knights of Marr guild, Twixt great job on the Guild hall, it looks awsome i know yaj and J prob helped but i think you prob did alot of the work…Gratzzzz.

Well with that being said stay tuned for more information as it breaks, i plan on post all the new update notes and any usefull info from SOE that may be announced.

Untill next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!!!

Yeah ok enough of the drama we have enough going on without it, what i am trying to get around to say is yes its that time of year again, YAJEE 200 is in full swing for Knights of Marr guild members.

What is the Yajee 200???

Well Yajee is one of the guild leaders of Knights of Marr on the crushbone server of Everquest 2, and 200 is the number of writs that needs to be completed in order to win the contest, yes 200 writs, first person to reach 200 writs will be rewarded 40 Plat…..woooohooooo.

This contest is great last years winner was Corliss 

 

Corliss

 

The contest is only open to members of KOM only, and the fun has already begun, KOM hit level 81 last night due to the contest, and i can say that Chubby knocked out 29 writs last night alone and 10 the night before, so he is up to 39 writs of the 200.

EQ2_000011 EQ2_000010

EQ2_000012 EQ2_000013 EQ2_000015 EQ2_000014 EQ2_000016 EQ2_000010

Also Chubby has moved in his tradeskill level and is now a level 85 Alchemist, damn  about time i know Cinderbella is in need of some combat arts and potions.

 

Also in the news of KOM Twixt, Mya or what ever alt she is going by these days is re-decorating the guild hall for KOM with some of the latest additions of the expansions. So lets give her a big warm round of cheer for working hard at making our guild hall look like that home away from home!!

Ahh what the hell, we will just make this Knights of Marr guild post..lol

Also in the exciting news of KOM, i want to send a congrats out to Shadowblades, aka Tastopherie (something like that) he has been promoted to guild leader, this position is shared by Yajee, Healyou, &  Knebiter. Sorry if i missed anyone else i am drawing a blank. but anyways Good luck with the added pressure, stress, and all the enjoyments of decision making when it comes to leadership, i should know i was one of the leaders of Loooney Toons in Eq2 and Heart of the Black Dragon in Eq2 and Eq1. anyways congrats and good luck.

So i finally did battlegrounds the other night, as i had no clue as to what i was doing i was jus running around aimlessly killing anything i saw move, if you were a team-mate…ooooopsie……my bad!!!  🙂

Not a bad concept, taking some of the game features of a First person shooter and develop them into a MMO, like Hold Territory Towers, capture the flag, Hold the Relic and so on. As these idea are not fresh and new, but just redesigned into a different format of gaming. From my understanding you can gain or be rewarded different types of Armor or armor sets, i have yet to see those, except for the ones that Harlow made me for toughness, War-painted armor. but as a reward for participating in the tournaments you gain yet another type of coin to collect and use to purchase new items. Well i have 3 so far as i did 3 of these games, i can see this being a filler when you are bored with the everyday grind of the game or just don’t feel like crafting, lest just see how long SOE will keep it around and what they have in store for this, as we have seen LON looks like its here to stay, so can they do the same with Battlegrounds??? Only time will tell.EQ2_000000

So with the new expansion out and most players have been playing since mid Feb. 2010, tell me what you think of the expansion, the changes, the additions, send your likes and dislikes. This is your chance to express your opinion on the latest SOE EQ2 Expansion.

With all that said and until next time……………………………………………………………….

Happy Hunting in Norrath

“THIS JUST IN….HOT OFF THE PRESS….HEREYEEE HEREYEE READ ALL ABOUT IT VIRUS CAUSES OUTAGE IN EQ2……”

Yeah so i woke up out of dead sleep on Tueday morning around 5am, and proceeded to the bathroom, where i was hoping that my life would end so the pain would be gone, yeah that didnt happen. The so called porceil gods did not hear my request of that moment or those hours that i was curled in the fetal position.

I have been out of commision now for the last 2 days, both days i logged into Eq2 very little, i thought i could get some quest knockd out of the way but the graphics were making me more sick then the virus was causing, so i just went back to sleep after 10 minutes of trying.

After 2 days of partial sleep, i am feeling better, i think i need to find a new doctor as when i called to see when they could get me in (After explaining what was wrong), i was advised March 15th 315pm…Ahhh yeah i think and HOPE that i will not still be sick 2 weeks away, needless to say i was drinking Pepto like it was water or a can of coke.

I was feeling better after 42 hours of sleep and very little fluids, i was able to keep down soup, and crackers, i then went to the PC and this was the true test of the night…was i going to be able to play without running back to the porceil gods……YES YES I WAS ABLE Wooot wooot.

So i settled in for some long overdue quest grinding i think i knocked out 25 quest in the Sundered Frontier Timeline, i am up to Jin’Tu the ghost Panda doing quest fro him so i can get to the village and do more Panda quest..lol i have been doing a ton of quest of late and all are in this new expansion, i also was able to add my part to Eq2i.wikia as i created a quest and all the steps and rewards to help other players, i logged in the next day and a admin had fixed the portions i had problems with on the coding..lol but hey at least i did my part, a quest that wasnt on there is now there to help others in their search….Yes as you have just read i run eq2 in windows mode and have wikia up in another browser looking up quest to help me with my journeys, so may call me lazy or a cheat, but hey i look at it as a tool to help guide me in the correct dirrection, and as i have come to find out over the years Wikia is not 100% correct.

Well with that said Cinderbella, hit lvl 84 last night, i am going to get her to 85 and stop and refocus on Chubby’s Alchemist skills so that i can make all the combat art spell upgrade for Cinder.
I have been getting all these great new upgraded spells and havent done a thing with them becasue i am too lazy to spend the plat on them, and the new exp you can make some quick loot just on afew quests and trash loots, I have noticed that the rares on the nodes do not drop alot making them a true rare.

Well i think i have caused enough damage for one day, sorry for no pics i am writing this from work and then posting, if i remember i will update with some new pics of the Frontier.

I will be back on tonight and saturday as i have to take Friday night off, for a Cub Scout overnighter with my son, we will be sleeping in the Carnagie Science Center in Pittsburgh PA this years Cub Scout Overnighter theme is “Robots”…Hehe man what i could tell them about the damn gnomes of Norrath, now thats some Serious ROBOTS CRAP there.

I’ll be back on Saturday for my normal ALLNIGHTER GAME-A-THONE and not to be confused with the ALLNIGHTER GAME -A-THONG!!!!! >:)

Safe Journeys to all and remember……

Untill Next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!!!!!

EQ2_000000

 

Well last night was Thursday and when i went to log in there was an update, it said 40 minutes for it to update, well no problem i figured that i could do a few things that needed to be done, check email, look at forums, check facebook….yeah well that took about 15 min and i still had another 30 min to go. I found myself sitting on the couch watching women’s figure skating , ok now see the problem here, i am a 36 year old overweight man sitting on the couch watching these twigs skate around the rink doing gymnastics, that’s not the bad part, the bad part was that i was glued to the TV it was like a train wreck , you know you should watch it but you cant help yourself. Overall it wasn’t that bad, wish the 2 US skaters would of placed but all-n-all it was entertaining. After i peeled my eyes off the TV i saw my patch was done i click "PLAY" and received an error, so i had to close out and restart Eq2, now when i did this i thought i would go to the log in watch it scan real quick and let me log back in..well boy was i wrong there was another update, for some reason the first update forgot to give my computer some files…ahhhh another 25 min…oh well back to Figure Skating. After what seemed like the longest hour and half, i was able to log in and get moving on things i wanted to accomplish, but now i was no longer in the mood to play, i found myself just wondering from Guild hall to Sundering Frontier to Kerra Island. I was able to complete 3 quest, gain some loot, my broker made 8 plat, so it was somewhat productive. after the turn in on the 3 quest i logged and headed to bed. I was disappointed in the update that occurred causing me not to get in when i wanted then causing me to become preoccupied.

Friday night is going to be different, i am going to get a lot of things done , get my tradeskills up on Cinder, maybe even log chubby in get him past the 81 marker and get the Alchemist tradeskill to max 90…who knows what the night and early morning hours will bring me…hopefully Fame and fortune…well if not fame please let it be Fortune and not a damn goblin asking me to play da lottery.

 EQ2_000065

 

Well may all your dreams come true, and those coin purses get full too!!!!!!! Untill Next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!!!!!

Toxxilia Prowlers 

 

 

   

 

 

 

Well the new expansion is now 1weeks old for some of us and just a few days old for others, I however was able to spend the last week and half enjoying the new areas and joys of the new expansion.EQ2_0000000

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think the new content is great, i have leveled Chubby to 81 and Cinderbella up to 83 i have done so many quest in this new area and still have tons more to work on.

I was not that happy about the reset of the AA points and having to remember what everything was or look up what the new ones were. So with that being said Over all so far i give the new expansion 8 out 10 stars in my book.

 EQ2_000071

I will have more as we move along in the expansion, as for now i am enjoying the new content, leveling my toons along the way and trying to make some Mad loot in the process.

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!
