Well my beloved Seattle Seahawks lost Superbowl XLIX on the 1 yard line with 30 seconds left. I am still recovering. I give Tom Brady and the Patriots credit, they won the game. 1 yard from being back to back Superbowl Champions is tough though. The bright side is the Seahawks crushed the Broncos in last year’s Superbowl and have a very young team so should be good for awhile. In Everquest 2 news, Beolf the Ranger dwarf is a few pieces away from a full set of 4/4 green gem gear. I believe he needs 10 more green gems that cost 200 Ferrin each. Today I’ve been harvesting roots to try to get rare Hiven Roots so I can have the best poison made for Beolf to use against his many enemies.
Life is fantastic. My beloved Seattle Seahawks defeated the Green Bay Packers in a quadruple miracle instant classic legendary NFC championship game to advance to the Superbowl. Beolf the Dwarf Ranger is coming along very nicely. I recently got him up to Level 100 Weaponsmith along with the cool cloak that comes with it. I’ve been working on getting Far Seas Tradeskill Ferrin currency to get runes made for his gear. Now I’m working on collection quests from the Altar of Malice expansion. Beolf has a bunch of Green Gems to go to complete his armor set but that’s good because I enjoy having a reason to run instances. I enjoy working towards long term goals. Everquest knows what I love. Working like a little hamster going on a wheel that never ends. Superbowl XLIX this sunday! GO HAWKS!!!
Life is good. The Seahawks beat the Panthers to advance to the NFC championship game and I’ve been having fun doing Heroic Dungeons in Everquest 2 with friends and guildmates. Friday I grouped with the gnome brigade of Reddranth the Paladin, Colossus the Beastlord and of course Nindakin the Inquisitor. We did some contested Highkeep and some Heroic dungeons. Best of all my Ranger Dwarf Beolf got a shiny new Fabled Bow to shoot bad guys with. Life is good.
Merry Christmas! I finally got my new Ranger to Level 100 and 340 AA points. I did a little of the Tears of Veeshan expansion before moving on to the latest expansion Altar of Malice. I’ve completed the AoM questline and I’m working on upgrading my gear and spells now. I want to thank Nindakin for helping me understand the different new gear and all the crazy buffs and stat soft caps and hard caps. Basically everytime I get a piece of gear I have to ask Nin if it’s any good. I’m enjoying the new content and having fun learning my new character. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Go Seahawks!
Beo Jr made it to about level 67 with me. It was fun but I doubt he will be playing anymore. It gets boring without friends to group with. I told him all the groups are at the level 100 and that’s a long grind away. But I’m going to power on and try to get there without losing all hope. My strategy is to grind out quests while listening to sports and comedy pod-casts. Beovaldr the Dwarf Ranger is now Level 86 and a half and is grinding away in a deserted Velious. Nindakin took pity on me grinding quests in god awful Kunark and took me on a Seb-run from levels 76 to 85. Praise Odin. I know these next 14 levels are going to be rough. Wish me luck!
I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween. Beo and Beo Jr’s characters reached level 50 today in Permafrost. Beo Jr was pleased to find out he can now illusion himself into a skeleton. I also have been working on my old guildhall in New Halas – The Viking Fellowship. Maybe my old friends Nin or Red will re-join but I doubt it. So right now it is a 2 man guild which is fine.
Finished Crushbone today. Level 32 ready for the next dungeon!
Beovaldr hit level 30 and Zerack level 28 while adventuring in good ole Crushbone Keep tonight. Dead orcs everywhere! I plan on getting Beo Jr a Gold Subscription plan so we can earn xp at the same pace. Currently I turned my XP to alternate advancement point only until Zerack catches up to me at level 30.
Well I tried quite a few MMOs to satisfy my itch. Star Wars, Star Trek, Wildstar, Archeage, Champions Online… None of them worked. So I’m back baby! This time I’m dragging my son into playing with me and starting from level 1 with a class I’ve never played before. Beovaldr the Dwarf Ranger. Beo Jr is playing his favorite Everquest race and class an Iksar Necromancer named Zerack. When he first played Everquest 1 as a young lad he chose this combo and messed around in the Field of Bone. So I think it’s cool he is keeping up his tradition. Currently we are level 26 and we just beat The Fallen Gate and this screenshot is us victorious at the bottom of the dungeon in The Vault of The Fallen. Huzzah!!
Here on Kauai we had a near miss from a hurricane with another on the way monday. It looks like we are getting lucky but 2 near misses and it’s just the start of the hurricane season. Been playing more Diablo III with Beo Jr and friend. Our group is me at Tank as a Monk, Beo Jr as the shim Demon Hunter and his friend the Wizard. I asked the wizard why the pink clothes and he told me “he had to”.
