Well the Holidays are finally over and now its time to focus back on the important things in life…EVERQUEST 2!!!!!!!!

I have been tinkering around with my 3 main toons and getting them leveled and tradeskilled up, its been a long and sometimes boring process. I am more of a solo player vs the group aspect of the game, dont get me wrong i love the occasional group or raid to get the blood flowing, but 98% of the time i am solo. I feel that being solo i can work at my own pace, if i want to stare at a mob and work out some strategy before jumping in i can, in a group thats not so easy, espically if you have someone like i use to be they see a mob and RUN straight for it and pull everything in site…hehe (done that one too many time) !!

But since the New Year is here i have taken a break from my older toons and made room for a new toon on the same old server but in a different new but old guild for me, i know that sounds confusing, so i’ll explain.

See i was once part of the Looony Toons guild in Crushbone , one of the founding fathers so to speak, well after sometime i was growing boried with the role of a leader and wanted to be lead, had alot of things going on in my RL that was affecting my EQ2 life, so i made a decision to step down and leave the guild to look for a more raiding guild, at the time all i wanted to do was raid and get the uber gear and become a ledgend.

Yes, i made a new home and fell in love with my guildies who have been the best friends a person could ask for in game and out of game. i still felt like i have had a peice missing from me, so on Monday i made a deciosion to create a new toon and tag him back into the old guild that i came from and work with them for a while. Now for anyone who is in the guild i am in now, dont worry – Chubby, Cinder, Kuzab and the other 2 alts are not leaving the guild, i just needed a change of pace and visit some old friends for a while, i will still be on my older toons and getting them where they need to be but i will also be working on this new toon and guild to help get them to GL 90. Just spreading the love guys !!

I have been very impressed with Looony Toons the last couple nights, last night they had over 20 players on for a majority of the night, it was great i havent seen that in a guild in a long long time and felt proud that i was at one point in my life that i helped create this guild, they have done so much ove the last couple years and have built the guild into a strong force for the citizens of Norrath. Also i didn’t releize this till last night that i created and join this new / old guild on the guilds Anniversay, so ironically one of the Founding Fathers returns on the night that the guild was origionally created serveral years ago!! 🙂

Anyways, alot is going on and i am here to partake in the fun festivities and get a new toon off the ground and into a raiding guild as this is what they have developed into again another ironic thing i have found, i left to goto a raiding guild that fell from raiding to create a new toon to go to my old guild who is now Raiding!! Lost yet!!

So the next post i have with my update progress should not be so confusing, the new toon is a ShadowKnight, since i just love the pure raw abilities of the SK class,and he is sitting at lvl 16 with about 12 AA’s, i am in the process of becoming a citizen of Freeport as i feel that Neirek is just too confusing to be able to raise a new toon. So if your on Crushbone look for Chubbers the Kerra SK, i’m sure you’ll see me around, hit me up for a PUG or just to chat.

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath or where ever you call home!!!

Well i’ve been very busy recently getting my alts leveled up so i can take them to the lands that their brothers and sisters have been too.

These alts have heard many tales from their kins, and have been eagerly awaiting their time to journey to this distant and past lands to become ledgens of their own time and bask in the forgot hordes of treasure that have been long forgotten.

Kuzab my pally has finally had some QT time from me in the recent weeks.

He is currently sitting at level 62 adventurer and lv 54 tailorer, the goal is to have him maxed out in both before the release of the next expansion, Since tomarrow is christmas Eve and i am off till monday, i will be giving him some long over due attention. Normally i start off with the adventure side of things and move over the artisan side once i become boried. Kuzab was the first toon i created on Launch day of Eq2, actully if you remember back when Eq2 was launched that if you preordered the game you had a few extra days before the retail side launched so you was able to get ahead of the other, and i had at that time taken advantage of this, however i grew boried with my pally as it wasnt what i was looking for at the time and instead of deleting him i just pushed him to the back burner. about after 2 months on Kuzab i created my Zerker Chubbylilbuddy who became my main too for the next 6.5 years.

Chubbylilbuddy is currently sitting at lvl 83 in adventure status and is already maxed out in crafting (Alchemist). I still love logging into Chubby and going out and basjing everything i see, its a great way to releive your stress levels after a long day of working.  I am hoping with these holiday breaks i can get Chubby completely maxed out by end of year, its going to take alot of time and blood (not mine or chubbys) to get him there.

Cinderbella – this was the 3rd toon i created and about a year ago became my main toon – this is my SK and i completely fell in love with her and her ability to create so much damage, just fricking awesome!! She is maxed out in her adventure at 90 and is stilling pretty at 70 for a sage, i would love to have her completely maxed out by end of year, along with her grandmaster crafting acheived as well.

I also have 3 other toons that are still low levels and there is no way i would be able to get them to 90 by launch of the expansion, but i will give it a try, a fury, warlock and a gaurdian walks into a bar….Umm i mean those are what the other 3 toons that are low level are.

Now i have been looking to maybe delete one of these toon when the expansion comes out so i can try the new vampire race but i am still unsure, i may also just purchase another toon slot thru the Station Store but as i mentioned not 100% sure at this time.

So this is what i have been up to since last update, and will or should have another update in a day or two.  If you ever find yourself on Crushbone, please look any of my toons up that i have mentioned, get a group going and embark on an epic journey of fame and fortune, this is how ledgens are born, this is where the stories of or lore are made from, this is how we become the new hero’s of out time, and to have other generations speak of our ventures, this is how we save Norrath and bring it back to its once Glorious time.

Until then, Happy Hunting throught Norrath or where ever you call home!!

Happy Holiday to you and have a Happy New Year as well.


Well this past Thanksgiving Holiday weekend use to be my weekend of nothing but gaming and gaming hours upon hours and have alot of things accomplished, for some reason this didnt happen this year!!

I did however get logged in a few days of the 4 day weekend, I got to venture to Chelsith once again with KOM to help a few folks with some updates for their epic, i did get some nice loot that was able to place on the broker and earn some phat plat.

I also was able to get some solo time in as well, working  on getting Chubby up to lvl 90, i was working the questline in Sundering Frontier as well as collecting Shines and harvesting for Rares. I know i should really be hording my rares on the harvesting side and saving for some armor my toons may be needing, however i placed them on the broker and made some nice plat, i placed 4 rares and with in 1 hr i had made over 20 plat, love it. So i started to go harvest crazy hoping to get more rares to place on the broker..lol

After about 2hrs of Harvesting and only 1 Rare dropped i switched back to killing everything and anything in site to gain some XP, i was getting 200% XP for my Valitaly and and additional 20% for max toons  but it still seemed as if it was dragging, normally when receiving this amount of XP bonus i would of dinged at least 2-3 lvls during my play time and i did not, i was working the areas that was well beyond my current level but still no dingage occured.

Tonight i am still going to work on Chubby and try to get him to 90 by the end of this week, i also have Kuzab my pally that i have been ignoring as of late and need to get him back into the mist of things as well. so hopefully by the end of the year i will have 3 lvl 90 toons and on my way to a 4th and 5th if i am lucky..lol

Until next time , happy hunting across Norrath or where ever you may call home!!

Well i am slowly making it back into Norrath, I have been playing a few hours each night just to get abck into things. i have been just finishishing up some of the higher level quests 87-89 in Stonebrunt part of the SF exp. i had thought i finished them all before but i must of missed some of these, or they werent available when i was lower level.

But i am helping the Kerran felines out in SBF, the ones thru the tunnel up by the lost Keejan city. i have been running back and forth to this village doing various quest from them earning some nice exp and coin. i have also been collecting every shinie i see and placing them on the broker i have made some decent plat the last few nights, last night when i logged in i was at 9plat 80 gold 72 silver and 32 copper, not bad for 12 hours sitting on the broker, i added more last night so hopefully i can earn as much again if not more i added 32 items to the broker.

Over all i think i am finally over the funk i was in, i once again , look forward to getting home and getting what needs to be done so i can log in once i’ve finished, Also the Sims 3 has helped me so much getting over this as well. What i mean by this is that for the last 3-4 years i have been mainly playing Eq2, every now and then i play a different MMO to see if it catches my eye or draws me in but i have always gone back to Eq2. The Sims 3 is not a MMO, so i get the chance to relax and just play and not worry if i am lagging and what i can do to bring the lag done, and the other stress factors of MMO’s mainly the other people in the game that can eith make or break it for you.

I recently received World Adventures for Sims3 havent really played it yet but it is installed and updated, waiting for play time. I will continue to play Sims 3 as i really enjoy watching my little Virtual me’s growing up and having fun and to see what will happen next.

Well 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!!!!!!

EQ2_000072

 

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
