The next Rift instance on our list was The Fall of Lantern Hook.
We were pushing to get everybody up to level 42 after the last run, the lowest level at which we could use the LFG tool to transport us to the instance.
I was kind of stressing that because the name of the instance made it sound like an event along the lines of the Caverns of Time, and I was wondering how that might be handled. Would it be a quest chain or some series of events we would have to trigger. All I knew was that it would probably be easiest to use the tool to get to Lantern Hook rather than ride out there, since I had yet to see the big green instance marker on the Droughtlands map.
We were also running short a person. Earl persists in having a life. So our lineup was:
- Jollyreaper level 41 mage
- Zahihawass level 43 cleric
- Gizalia level 45 mage
- Hillmar level 47 cleric
Earl had actually been on earlier in the day and had gotten himself up to level 43, so only Jolly was below the level 42 goal for the group.
We decided to do a reconnaissance in force to Lantern Hook to find out where the instance was and to see what we would be facing as a group.
More after the cut…
