It was the best night ever. Laughter was raining down like April showers. But no, not really, but it was a pretty awesome night.
Finally, after almost 1 year of playing this game (on the same character mind you), I finally finished map completion! It was honestly, something that should have been done a long time ago but for some reason I kept getting distracted by the smallest little things (I’m looking at you, you beautiful sounding but all so terrible at the same time flute that I adore so much).
With map complete, I have officially reached the 25% mark for how complete my
legendary quest is (and this is totally not true considering it takes SO much more time than that, but if you divide the 4 componants into 25% each, it can give you a little hope that one day you will reach it right?). I put my Bloodstone Shard, my 250 Obsidian Shards, my Gift of Exploration and my Gift of Battle into the forge. BAM! I got the Gift of Mastery. That said, what’s next in this legendary quest? Well… Let’s see.
In my last post I decided to level out my weaponsmithing. It is something I will need later on when I need the Gift of Metal for the Gift of the Flameseeker Prophecies. At the same time, I thought it would be cool to have an accessible crafting method to chuck some rares and exotics into the mystic forge for a chance at the precursor. Well, my feelings have changed a little bit…
Doing some research into the experience of other people who have crafted their legendaries, a lot of people made a good point for crafting and the forge. Firstly, you are going for shield precursor, so naturally you are going to throw in the shield rares and exotics right? Wrong! It would actually be better to throw in great swords for a chance at Dusk, so you can sell it for almost 2x more the money and use that money to buy the precursor and have left over funds to cover other expenses for the materials needed. Secondly… Some people have thrown so much into the forge where they are at the point that they could have just strait up bought the precursor. Ouch, kinda discouraging isn’t it?
So, what do I do? Well here are my next goals.
First things first. I’m going to level up a warrior and spend the rest of my days hauling ass in CoF P1 SPEEDRUN WE NEED MORE ZERKER WARS AND A MESMER PLEASE BE PROFESSIONAL AND PING GEAR ON JOIN IF YOU DON’T PING YOU ARE KICKED, IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO PLAY A WARRIOR YOU ARE ALSO KICKED THIS IS VERY SERIOUS BUSINESS.
Yea, no… I will be running CoF 1 yes. But I will do it on my Engineer. I will make my own groups and I will accept any lovely people that will want to come do a casual speed run. I will even take level 70s. Why? Because I don’t need to be butt hurt over a video game. Doing CoF speed runs will allow me to get some gold as well as the dungeon tokens to buy exotic weapons to forge dump or get ectos. However CoF isn’t my main goal.
Next, I am about 100 tears shy of my Gift of Ascalon. So I will need to run that once in a blue moon. I will also be running the world bosses everyday, as well as completing my dailies for coins, karma, gold and ectos. A guild member of mine mentioned that I should just save up my karma jugs and unload on them when I’m fully karma gain buffed. Maybe I will do that. I’m not sure yet. I find karma comes so regularly that it’s not all that necessary. It may be convenient, but I can concentrate on other things.
Now, I decided that I am going to be buying most things with gold. Most tier 6 mats, including the lodestones, as well as needing to buy those juicy Icy Runestones (not).
Honestly, why am I doing this? It’s such a headache to keep track of things that need to get done and I can end up ranting about it. Oh well.
Above all else though I am going to be gambling up those mystic clovers first and foremost. I can see that taking a very long time. But time is money, and that time can be spent making money. That’s my ultimate goal. Gifts of Magic, Might, History, Metal are all very accessible if you have the money. As well as the Icy Runestones. The precursor? Well kids, that’s a story for another time.
