Picked this screenshot up the other day on a roam around space adjacent to our alliance. The Curse belongs to our fleet, the Paladin was a blue moving through the gate we briefly camped. The drake is me–cheap and expendable.
Still means hurry up and wait, regardless of the setting. Is the primate below in a vagabond?
I really need to get my second two miners into tech II ice harvesters. The one character I have using tech IIs outpaces them by a large amount.
Having switched multi-box obsessions from LotRO, to EQ2, and finally landing back in EVE the last few months, I made the move to 0.0 space and a new corporation while remaining on speaking terms with Wilhelm and Potshot, et. al. I’ve been taking lots of screenshots, and may try to do something similiar to Kilgore’s EVE Online Pictures for awhile. First up, corporation mining operation this last week.
Things went well until our frequent roaming band of gankers came by from -A-. We quickly reshipped and began to harrass the two reds in our system, giving them enough time to call in reinforcements and cost me a drake. Incidentally, the same gang caught me the next day while I was installing “Cinderalla” on another computer for my daughter. This time it cost my other pilot a raven. Apparently, they hate children and I can’t seem to learn that 0.0 AFK equals 150 million ISK.
Speaking of which, Adam of The Witty Ranter and other Virgin Worlds podcasts has joined me in 0.0. He seems to be having fun, although his losses of choice are hulks rather than Caldari rigs. Of course, it helps when your ratting with this monster.
Wilhelm over at TAGN tagged me for the sixth screenshot meme. Here is one as close to the 6th folder and shot as I could find.
This is my old four-box crew from EQ2 on the Crushbone server. They were somewhere in the late 50s at this time (about a year ago or more). From left to right are my bruiser, swashbuckler, fury, and assassin. Not sure who to tag….
I have had a couple of nights with the Shadow Odyssey now and am intrigued enough to accelerate the grind of my new trio. I have to admit I have had only one trip into a new instance, Befallen. It was for about two hours and five deaths, but still was a lot of fun. Figuring out the new instances is always a blast.
- Memory charm–reset your vitality to 100 percent. Technically, these are 5 year account rewards but were released with the expansion. As if my leveling wasn’t fast enough. I used the charm last night, earned levels 48 and 49 in short order. Was back to 10 percent vitality by the end of the night with another 6 days 20 hours on cooldown. Two hour duration 55 percent XP bonus pots are also good stuff.
- Dire Bear mount/pet–I am happy to have a “free” mount. I am also happy, near as I can tell, that there is no stat bonus to the mount making the guild mounts superior.
- The lack of my t8 toons–not a highlight of the expansion, but an frustration for me. I miss Gaff, my 80 berserker, and my illusionist trio. I can’t bear to go grind out the new quests in the Moors without them. SOE: Give us a new, free character transfers.
- New AA tree–when I moved Lurk I didn’t assign all my AAs so I still had 18 to put into the mix. The new tree has some quite useful slots–increase tradeskill progress, power pool, and health to name a few.
The Guk group is in the late 40s, with 50 to come tonight, I hope. Sinking Sands awaits. I went around to some “classic” zones, Everfrost, Lavastorm, etc., the other night in a search for easy quests and got frustrated with the “kill ten x” format. I left with a guildie, the esteemed Ghostfrog Ranger to grind grind grind. Triple-up minotaurs do an XP bar good.
