One thing I didn't mention about last night's Auzura "Merac Run" was that Rage went up by 0.21% for her 40 minutes of fighting; she didn't get any skill points, but her drake did get 380 pet points. Ah well, I suspect 0.21% is a lot more than 2bizarJones got for her rather more high-level efforts!
MistressDomino did manage to make some useful sales in the late evening, UK time, on Auzura-5, and I decided to leave her selling her goodies for at least part of the night. The moonstones and the perfect stones sold quickly, as did most of the heaven stones, and some chaos balls - but for a really good selling session I'd need to sell some mana stealers, berserker potions, item drop boosters, and damage boosters too. In the end, there seemed rather a lot of those left, so perhaps next time prices will need to be adjusted. Still, MistressDomino's cash stash moved back up to the highest it had been since her last big spending spree.
RedRackham logged back in for some drake-levelling on Cariae-4 before breakfast, and stayed at work until after coffee. RedRydeR did make a trip down to the Jail, but floor three was already being used, so I had to switch over to Plan B - which involved SirKit and AmityBlaise heading for Prokion Temple instead.
The back room was in use, so Kit and Amy moved along to what I call the corridor room alongside, and had an uninterrupted session there. It was a combat party, with Kit doing most of the work, but Amy did some fighting too, when convenient. By the time lunch was getting close, SirKit had earned 54.38% experience, while AmityBlaise was up 41.63%, and had earned 103 guild points for the Cariae branch of the Discipline guild. And they'd each got 247 more skill points.
Over lunch we had RedRackham drake-levelling on a gnoll lancer in stereo, out in both Cariae-4 and Auzura-4 - we had the same effect over the early evening food break, too. At the end of the lunch break another pandora's box appeared on Cariae-4 near RedRackham, and RedRydeR logged on specially to deal with it - it was handy that, last time she'd been there, I'd added the spot to her memory scroll, This time the box just unleashed five level twelve physical defence minerals, rather than a beast.
The third level of Maargadum Jail was again in use when RedRydeR arrived, but I decided I might as well stick around, and fought the beast scythes and beast archers on the raised area to one side, without really going into any of the side rooms. SirKit came along too, and went down to the central area, to just sit out of the way there. I asked the titan there, MUDD, if he wanted a combat party, but he was already in a solo, and anyway was more interested in skill points than experience - he was using an effort scroll, for 50% extra sp gain for ten minutes. He asked me to stay clear, so I stayed up at the side - until he announced that he was finished, after five minutes or so, and handed the place over to me.
So, RedRydeR took possession of the place, and stayed there until the end of the afternoon, when the Elizabeth's Enhancement buff ran out. A level 47 knight called BlaCkStaR88 came in, and accepted an invitation to join the combat party...but apart from asking my level when he arrived, I don't think he said anything, and he left after a few minutes. I caught sight of someone called babysnuggle at one end briefly, but they didn't stick around; there was a rogue called xSilentOnex later who, by again asking my level, didn't live up to her name, and again soon left.
By the time the session reached its natural conclusion, RedRydeR had gone up by 51.45%, plus 137 skill points and 2472 pet points, which got her drake well into level 18, while SirKit had levelled up, reaching level 37, and so was able to put on the last two pieces of the Abro armour set. In all he gained 27.65% just sitting or standing at the side, and 134 skill points.
After the early evening food break, I did a little checking on various inventories, and some searching in Roy's merchant mart on Auzura and Cariae. There was still no +15 level 85 bow available for Kaerella on Auzura, which is rather holding her back - she needs that bow so that the level 69 one can be changed into a wizard's staff for MistressDomina, so that MD, along with MrChuckNorris, can do some levelling on the screaming zombies. And Kae herself will then be able to fight the screaming zombies herself, and go up at least one level, to be able to put on the circlet and boots from the 85/87 armour set - which will free up the level 72 ones, to be passed on down the line.
Over on Cariae there still was no sign of a +15 pair of level 85 gloves to complete Keerella's set - but when I switched to looking for healer gloves, I found a pair of green-named, 5 evasion seal level 105 Light Jarinom Gloves +15 being sold by Roy for tallichealer at 420 million, which seemed well worth getting, since Barbarienne is now that level. I couldn't see a +15 level 106 jacket, for next time she levels up - but I found that DaizY was selling Anti-stone Jarinom Leggings +15, blue-named and with all five evasion seals, for, gulp, a billion (US), and gritted my teeth and bought them too.
Equipping the gloves, instead of the level 85 b4e pair, increased Barbarienne's physical defence from 3334 to 3403, but decreased her physical evasion from 1183 to 1150, so I think I'd better still try to find a blue-named pair if I can, eventually. The new gloves do add 8 to physical attack, though! When Barb can put on the new leggings, they ought to increase her defence by 83.
Moving down a few levels, from 105 to 27, AmityBlaise had 521 skill points to spend, so was able to get the remaining levels of Snare, Reinforce, Regain, and Coup de Gras, plus the first level of Innate Movement (increasing her attack speed), three more levels of Poison Capsule, and the first two levels of Mental Defence (increasing her magical defence) - leaving her once again with zero points. She then opened a couple of treasure chests, with Lorraine's assistance, and got 20 Candy plus 150,000 gold.
The main part of the evening saw SirKit and AmityBlaise return to Prokion Temple, which was so full that the first place we found free was the "mirror universe" back room. Luckily with Amy, on level 27, in the combat party, even the two orc soldiers there give a useful bit of skill exp. After a friendly passing rogue, DarlaSilvereye, had lured in a group of extra orcs for me a couple of times, Amy started to do that, in a less ambitious way, luring in a few orc fighters, axemen, and sergeants from the corridor, to help keep things busy. Thanks to her fighting, we got a few more Wendy Bear pieces, though Kit got some too - and Amy got a heaven stone, followed later by a hand of the warrior drop, so we did pretty well on the loot side.
My duo logged out early, though; SirKit had earned another 30.47%, while AmityBlaise had gone up by 40.78%, and earned 102 guild points. They each got 206 new skill points, rather less than from the morning session; the decrease would mainly be due to Kit having moved up by a level, I assume.
I did a little moving around of loot, replenishing my merchant stocks; SirKit moved his extra Wendy Bear pieces across to MistressFelicia, but RedRydeR has held on to hers for the moment. I have seen people attempting to charge up to a million each for the pieces, I hope nobody pays that much. But then I've seen people trying to get that much for a Candy, which I don't find particularly speedy sellers at around 75,000 gold.
MistressDomina on Cariae went into merchant mode, near the fountain close to the arena on Cariae-4, and quickly sold most of her heaven stones... and somebody bought all 300 of her experience boosters, at 1,550,000 gold each, so we've more than got back the cost of those gloves. The shirt may take a little longer, I felt...
Today's special event was another of the fifteen-question quiz things, this one with "Who is the GM?" as the theme. Auzura-5 was scheduled to start the ball rolling at nine o'clock, UK time, which was why I'd stopped the adventuring earlier than usual. Kaerella went along to Merac Village... but a few minutes after nine a GM announcement came up that the event had been cancelled, and that instead there would be four hours of 50% extra experience, which was not a lot of use for me. So, RedRackham logged back in on Cariae-4, and went to do an hour or two's pet-levelling. Ah well, a slightly early finish is probably a good idea, as I've had a couple of rather late nights this past weekend. I suppose Last Chaos, or Aeria Games in general, must be slightly under-staffed for GMs at present.
