I had a plan for my fae. Really, I did.
I was going to stick to the Echoes of Faydwer content. I was going to spend my time enjoying the new zones. It was going to be like playing a new game.
But then I ran over to Antonica to get my harvesting skills up.
Just for an hour or two. No big deal.
Then I had to run over there to light a beacon for the “Ro’s Flame” deity quest. Just passing through, nothing to see here. I am just lighting that last beacon then I am going to recall.
Then I had to run back again, to the Oracle tower, for the last leg of “Ro’s Flame.” While I was waiting around for the cool down on my recall, I thought I would start on “These Boot Were Made For….” It is a heritage quest and our guild is 28 and would like to get to 30, so why not.
While I was at it, I picked up the Gnoll Mastery book. There are lots of gnolls I could knock off in Antonica. And bears. There are a couple of “kill bear” quests I recall. Then I thought about the armor quests that start in Qeynos Harbor. I could do the first one quickly, so why not. I would get a better set of gloves. And once I did that, a better set of bracers.
On and on this went, until I had about 25 Antonica related quests in my journal. So once I finished up “Ro’s Flame” I had to decide what to do next. I could keep working in Faydwer, or I could just wrap up these Antonica quests to, you know, clean up my journal.
Well, most of my Faydwer quests were yellow to me at the moment, so I decided I could use another level to get lined up to finish them.
Then they went and made green quests eligible for AA experience.
Soon I realized I had done the last three levels in or about Antonica, and rather quickly. I know my way around. I know where the NPCs are. I know which quests I can combine to get a couple done at a time. It is nice to be running around Antonica again. And, finally, since I have been playing EQ2 solo a lot again, I’m not really dragging anybody out of Faydwer with me.
At least those Faydwer quests will still be worth AA experience if they turn green.
