The previous week’s run into the Realm of the Fae was clearly a warm-up, a test to see how we would operate as a group.
And, as with any good test run, deficiencies were found. They ranged from not having the right specs (nobody was a tank in the game’s opinion) to just getting adjusted to the game itself.
This past Saturday we went in with an updated and upgraded force. We forged our spirits in the traditions of our ancestors and ended up with:
- Jollyreaper level 16 mage
- Earlthecat level 16 warrior
- Hakawati level 17 rogue
- Hillmar level 18 cleric
- Gizalia level 19 mage
Ephemara the rogue was traded our for Gizalia the mage, while Earl and Hillmar both worked on refining their talent point allocation. While we were also a couple of levels up, most of us were still at the low end of the level requirement for the instance.
As we tried to enter the dungeon, we were tripped up once more.
More unspent points
Apparently even one unspent point is too many. And since this runs long again, more after the cut…
Saturday night found us all online in Rift, and with the five of us our thoughts turned to group content. Potshot had pointed out that once we were all level 15 we could attempt the Realm of the Fae instance.
All we had to do was get the whole group up to level 15.
Earl was actually on a bit ahead of time, so I ran out to help him catch up to where we were in the Freemarch quest chain.
About the time he and I were headed for where the group left off last week, everybody was online and we could assess where we stood. The party as we joined up was:
- Jollyreaper level 13 mage
- Earlthecat level 14warrior
- Ephemara level 14 rogue
- Hakawati level 14 rogue
- Hillmar level 15 cleric
I still hadn’t worked out what souls we all have allocated, but we’ll get to that. The
dungeon finder looking for group tool informed me that the group, as formed, was not eligible for any dungeons, as was expected.
You must be at least level 15…
But we had time. And since this post ran much longer than I thought it would, I am going to insert a break to keep the front page from being a mile long.
