The Desert and other fun

Gamer child is now level 12!!!!

And gaming is coming full circle as we introduced her to the Sands of Menechtarun.  It was a few years ago that she really wanted to start playing and ran my character through the open area with the rest of the guild while I cooked dinner.

Like any responsible parent, I told her to stock up on Remove Curse and Remove Disease pots to cure her own Mummy Rot.  Girl Scouts are always prepared.

I was quite proud to see her removing her own Mummy Rot during two of the Desert Walk up quests, Tomb of the Physician and Tomb of the Astrologer on Elite.  Unlike others who forgot pots….cough cough Geoff Hanna.

She has been exploring the Desert with the help of the wiki maps but I think the topography is throwing her off with the mountains.  But we had her drink a minor slayer pot and sent her on her way.

I hate the Demon Queen raid.  There I said it.  It is out.  I hate the pre-raid for it.  I think it totally takes away from the idea of a raid group.  Spend the time running the pre-raid as six people and then join forces for the full raid which ends in the blink of an eye.

With that in mind, we are also running Restless Isles with her.  We ran Hiding in Plain Sight last week.  Great quest.  So much fun as it is connected to Information is the Key.  I know that the guild ships will bring you to Restless Isles without running HIPS, but why avoid such a great quest?  Last night, we started running through the Restless Isles to pick up the quests.  It has been a long time since we were in Restless Isles, so there were a few wrong turns but still lots of fun.  Geekdad got us a red dungeon alert right off the bat splitting the oozes in the beginning of the tunnels.  He got scolded by Gamer child.

Got a few chests in the outer areas.  One of those happened to be right at the edge of the cliff.  Gamer child made a wrong step and fell to her doom from the Rsstless Isles.  All we could hear was, “Mommy…….” in a plaintive voice.  We recalled out to meet her back at the front and ran back.  Found Opu to get the Slavers of the Shrieking Minds quest.  Perhaps tonight, we will run her out to pick up the quest with the best title ever, Bring Me the Head of Ghola-fan.

She is now two bubbles into level 12.  We used her DDO from VIP and her birthday present from DDOcast to purchase the 32pt Build.  No reason for her to grind for it.  I helped her build a new character.  A cleric.  She insisted on customizing her look and completely reworked her new character.   So her level 1 cleric is starting out on Korthos.  It will give her something easier to run when we are running epics with the guild.
