Nothing to Do? …Immerse yourself in tier 6.

Posted by revenants on November 5, 2007

 Fist fighting

Minotaur Pugelism. Konador,  Buckleton & Daltieri get down and dirty.


It seems like it has been one hell of a hectic week here.  The reason I have no updated the posts yet?  My friends and I are currently at that great period where all of a sudden it seems that loads of our toons are all around the same level. This means that pretty much every spare moment of computer access tends to end up with me logging in to Ventrilo to shouts of  “Come on we need you!”, and getting absolutely no time to do anything else.  Of course…not that I minded!  We have had a riot pretty much all week. Every day.  You see this week we have all been lucky enough to be off work for most of the time..I dread to think how many hours collectively we have spent online.  The figures must be mind boggling.


Guild Level 23


So, what was achieved with this goodly amount of online time? Well, breaking it down very basically..Revenants hit guild level 23, Morriana hit 62, Buckleton 55, AA’s galore (still no-one at 100 though – Ed), Konador (guildie) romped from 52 through to 60 in just 4 days and also assisted Bucky and Daltieri in some Minotaur fist fighting, endless dungeoneering for all of us, SoS, Vaults, Ancient’s Table, Nest, Breeding Grounds, Writs, MoM, CoI, Klak, Basket and Box quests from Hidden Refuge, some in house duels, Acadechism, Den of the Devourer, OOB, Ivy Shrouded Orb of Tunare (first 4 quests completed) and of course more SoS!


Out of that huge amount of online achievement, what shall I talk about? What shall we discuss?  One of the things that I seem to have become a bit of a victim of this week, (which is unusual as I never really seem to have too many problems in this department) is the struggle to find interesting things to do. Did I mind? No, not one bit and I’ll tell you why later….  I honestly do think the problem is indicative of how many players experience and view the ‘50’s’.  A lot of my friends and acquaintances seem to think that from 50 to 60 is a terrible grind and that’s that! Thing is though, I hate to burst your bubble but there is simply a ton of stuff to do during any tier. Anything different and those that complain about this simply aren’t looking hard enough.  Let’s take the dreaded 50 to 60 dash.  I may be all on my own here, but this appears to me to be the most complained about tier…..and I have no idea why. This is the first tier where we had updated content and new zones in the form of Desert of Flames. So lets take a look at just a sprinkling…Quests…The whole Peacock Club line, guaranteed to keep you busy. Carpet Quests, a must for those without twinked transport, the whole Ashen Order/Disciples questlines, Courts quests and factions, bug zapping…all to name but a few.  So, plenty of quests..what about interesting zones? SS, Maj’Dul and PoF themselves..all very good zones for quests and hunting. Clefts, Shimmering Citadel, Living Tombs, Silent City to name but a few. Then there is always the Roost and The Ancient’s table. Poet’s Palace? Too right, all great great fun and xp. 


But you know what?  That’s not it! Much of the early part of the Kingdom of Sky expansion is do-able with a group of higher level 50’s especially if you manage to wheedle your way in to a Breeding Grounds group or the like.  I am not even going to get started on the quests available in T.T…way too many to mention, but think Baskets and Boxes then move on from there.


So, if there is so much to do, how come I became a victim of this phenomenon? Thing is I wasn’t alone.  If you recall I mentioned that I have spent most of the week getting dragged round by my friends and have had a fantastic time doing it.  Problem with that is though, that even though we are all very good friends both in real and game life, we are all separate entities and as such wanted to do different things at different times. So there have been times this week where we’ve all stood round wondering what to do, some complaining about the 50 to 60 run, getting frustrated.  Good thing is though, because of the plethora of good stuff to get involved in it never took us long to find something new and move on. That’s the problem when grouped you see, even with friends..we all have our own agenda and sometimes we aren’t going to be able to agree on what to do.  We are Human, and our attention spans all differ. We could have sat round and complained about the supposed ‘lack of content’ all day….but instead we got off our arses and decided to go check some out.  And you know what..….we hardly scratched the surface of content available..oh, and most importantly..we all had a really great time.


Poor content from 50 to 60?? ..a terrible grind??


Pish-Posh Sir! Immerse yourself in Tier 6!
