Insanity cured

I managed to fall asleep last night without the bubble fizzing feeling so it looks like things are all better. Whatever it was it seems to be gone now. I'm still not sure what caused it or what the heck it even was. I'm just glad it's gone and hopefully won't be coming back any time soon. It was a really unpleasant feeling all around.

Other than spending 32 hours awake due to that spazzout, nothing interesting has been going on around here. I've spent a good chunk of time playing Guild Wars and finally managed to advance beyond pre-sear (newbievile) in the game. I had been ready to advance for around a week but had held back to wait for Brian so we could move on together. All of that ended up being a waste since for some reason we got split during the graduation mission anyway. Since then, I've been running around the new world on my own and I don't quite know what I feel about it. It's not all that much fun running around by myself and I have this tendency to repeatedly expire at unfortunately frequent intervals. Since it's hard to level up, I can't quite see how to improve my character. There are lotsa skills but nothing seems to be all that helpful. I dunno. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong. I'm just hoping to eventually run into prismcat again and maybe she'll have some help/suggestions.

hi henwy, school has started up again, so I don't get as much time to play - homework has to take priority, but I should be able to get some game time in tonight and maybe tomorrow! I was trying to remember why I couldn't do a lot of things and then looked at my Nightfall account and realized all my fun chars are over there and can do more. I like Nightfall much better than Prophecies. In GW, you mostly have to do the missions to get real XP, otherwiser it is mostly running around only getting a trickle. I still have my 20 lvl Mo/Me in Prophecies, so she and the other chars can help you along. Oh, as far as getting really good skills, you get them later in the game and have to use a capture signet to steal them from boss monsters that used them after you kill them. It's kinda like stealing their mojo. In the lower levels you need to keep up with upgrading your armor to stay alive. Some people like to just buy their armor, but I've always been more of a fan of using the traders to get armor and then upgrading with stuff I've salvaged from goodies that I've won from killing critters - ie, if it's a purple or gold item, but you don't like it overall that much, use an expert salvage kit to extract the magical goodness and get rid of the stupid base item. Then you can apply the magical item to your own goodies!

Re: heyo
Someone ran me over to...err...I don't remmeber the name of the place now. It's where you can buy the best armor in the game. Well, the best armor you can get from crafting normally anyway. I tried to buy as much as I could and ended up blowing all of money I had saved and only managed to pick up boots and gloves. I don't seem to notice all that much of a difference so far, but maybe it'll get better when I can afford the rest of the armor one day. It's going to cost a fortune.

As for the rest...I don't really get the whole salvage thing. I bought an expert salvage kit but it doesn't seem to always work. I click to salvage an item and sometimes it just breaks it apart instead of asking me if I want to pull components from it. I've also been unable to pull rare crafting materials. The % must be really low.

Re: heyo
Seriously? I mean the elite armor in GW costs $15,000 for each piece PLUS the actual crafting materials. I'm not saying you don't have the best armor, but I played Prophecies for about a year and never got my elite set, but maybe you know something I don't...there are 4 types of elite armor in Prophecies for rangers it's: Drakescale, Druid, Fur-Lined, or Studded Leather.

The cost for a complete set of:
Elite Drakescale: 60K in gold, 350 tanned hides, 35 scales
Elite Druid: 60K gold, 350 tanned hides, 350 sticks
Elit Fur-Lined: 60K gold, 350 tanned hides, 35 furs
Elite Studded-Leather: 60K gold, 350 tanned hides, 35 steel ingots

Re: heyo
No, no. The best non-elite stuff. AC 70 and 1k a pop.

Re: heyo
oh yeah, regarding the rare crafting materials - they're called rare for that reason. some traders will let you trade lesser crafting materials for better ones, basically save all crafting materials needed for your elite set(s) of armor for the chars that will go all the way. ie, save for them all simultaneously. you can expand your storage chest to hold crafting materials.
