After getting to 59, I still had a couple more quests left to clean up in Lesser Faydark, plus two city writs, so off I went.
Running through the last couple of quests and the writs ended up with Blintz about 20% into level. But at that point he was left with nothing but heroic quests in LFay.
Wondering what to do, I decided to go on another spending spree.
I headed to the broker to buy out a few more collection quests.
Last time I spent all of two plat, which still seems like a lot of cash to me. But I remember complaining when some of these collection quest items were close to a whole GOLD in price! Now I do not even think twice about something that is only a gold.
This time around I splurged a bit more, forking out about 7 plat for collection items. I even managed to get the rhino horn collection quest from Kunark. At least I think it is from Kunark. Rhinos are a theme there and all, at least when it comes to mounts.
This time the outlay paid off a bit better. I jumped from around 20% into level to 97%.
With that little amount left to go, I grabbed one more city writ for creatures in the Shadowed Grove and headed to Lesser Faydark to get that level.
I like the Shadowed Grove primarily because of one creature, the void beast invader.
At rest, the void beast invader looks like a human silhouette, but when he moves, he suddenly unfolds into a scary looking creepy crawly critter, like this:
Somebody did nice work with that creature idea.
Anyway, 3% did not take long. A few Shadowed Man Invaders for the writ and the level was mine.
60 at last. Another level cap reached… the level cap for the two-year old Desert of Flames expansion.
Blintz was created on November 15, 2006, so it took about a year to get to level 60, though I have not played him very much over the last four months.
Time played 12 days 17 hours (1099685 seconds)
He as 73 AA Points and has completed 582 quests. (494 + 88 collections)
I was so happy that I grabbed some more writs and headed off to the Loping Plains where, after some initial success, I proceeded to get my ass handed to be repeatedly.
I think I will cross Loping Plains off my list for a couple more levels and see what the Kingdom of the Sky has to offer. I have not spent much time there so far.
