And, Finally, Level 60

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.

    Grats !

    Time played only 12 days ? ! ?! !? ? I have spent far too much time on my main then, doing gray quests and harvesting. Level 71, Time played = 70 days.

    That’s actually a little slow. My first level 70 was my Paladin, and it took almost 6 months for him to reach the (then) cap (not sure on day count for him).

    My Brigand who is now level 75 has only 11 days played, but hit level 70 in about 3 months, and had about 8 1/2 days played at that point. But of course, neither of them did much crafting or harvesting, and that takes a lot of time.
