|I'm not exactly focussed right now... :p|
I'm wondering at what point I'll have to start thinking about levelling someone else.
Right now, P really is my only active toon: I'm not counting the times I log people on to harvest, because no-one really is doing anything else (okay, so the tailor is making Imperial Silk and the two Transmuters will do Living Steel if someone in Guild wants them) P has a ton of stuff in progress, if truth be told, but there isn't really a thrust or a focus to what's being undertaken. I just do it when a) the mats are available without buying them and b) if I come across something interesting. I am well aware that the Lorewalkers could have been at Exalted a long time ago if I'd followed a guide, but I'm happy discovering scrolls as I look for other stuff (found the last Emperor's Burden looking for a rare that was dead, for instance) The Grill Mastery means I'm 3/6 on the Food Grind, Ella is now my first Best Friend with the Tillers. It is all coming about as a result of other stuff.
I hear an awful lot of muttering about the Dailies in Guild right now: they take too long, they're buggy, there's too much to do, there AREN'T ENOUGH GOATS. I have to say, I've not gotten either frustrated or bored yet by any Quest. I enjoy the challenge of soloing anything and everything, of discovering achievements I didn't know existed and generally feeling that there is a sense of genuine progression in the processes. I can sympathise with the frustrations however (not everyone is Virtually Indestructible, after all) and I try to keep my head down as I do my work. I'm comfortably into Revered with the Tillers, just into Honored with the Golden Lotus (giving me access to the Epic Leatherworking patterns and leg patches \o/) and almost revered with the Klaxxi. All that means I'm almost to Honored with the Black Prince to boot: I discovered today that killing rares gives a nice rep boost for that cause, so no more avoiding a Silver Dragon alert if I already have it on the list.
I've not even visited the Cloud Serpent dudes yet. Mount #150 last night was the Blonde Yak from the Grummles. Expect a return to picture documentation at some point in the future.
|I have a Best Friend \o/|
I can see how the Tillers have managed to enthral so many people: questing aside having a fully working farm really is the only way to get the sheer number of vegetables you need for maxxing Cookery. Once everyone's got there, of course... I wonder how the market for vegetables will pan out. However, that's a post for another time. My focus, on the personal front at least, is to finish the last three Cookery branches: once that's done I have the six speciality dishes to complete... and after that... I think I might need a bit of a lie down... ^^
