Last night I had a math moment. After getting home from work, eating dinner, helping my kids with homework, and other assorted jobs around the house, I realized I had about an hour to play, and I needed to load up on writs to help pull my alt guild up to level 30. Once my two toons hit level 60, the tier 7 writs opened and I set to work. The problem is time–I have to run one toon around Qeynos, and one around Freeport to get the requisite writs. Between getting the kids a snack, updating web stuff, and putting my two toons where they need to be, time evaporated quickly.
I have dealt with running the two toons around different cities for 60 levels, so why not betray earlier? I just never crunched the numbers. I think I can sell with two accounts out of the same inn room in Qeynos–a savings in rent. When I was moving down the steps in South Freeport, there was my ogre of freedom, promising me a new life. I decided to take him up on it, and went off to plant listening devices. I will be able to run the two toons to tradeskill instances, the mender, brokers, etc. together. Writs will be the same. The only down side is the time it takes to betray. I do not have a good fix on this part of the equation.
I hope the process will be complete this weekend, if I use Saturday to work on the betray stuff. Last night I gave up working on it during the second step because it had to be night time–night time was too far away and bed time too close. I am using EQ2i to walk-through the process. If there is a better guide out there, post a link please.
I probably won’t stop hating the Bayles, but I am curious what will happen to my Claymore process. I completed the Coin Operator quest, and have not picked up the next step. I also am a worshipper of Rallos Zek the Unmerciful, and wonder if he will hate me for leaving Freeport; well, hate me more than he does most people. I have not found the answers to these questions, though a guildie advised me to clean out my house and shared bank slots.
