Our Monday night Secret World crew decided to break into two groups, with mine going back to one of the Hell dungeons (I get the names all mixed up in my head) to farm some gear. Considering we had a brand-new healer, we actually redeemed ourselves pretty well. Lots of boss-smacking, heroic posing, and funny comments on TeamSpeak.
My big get of the night was a hammer drop that wasn’t a numerical improvement, but it definitely was an upgrade in the looks department. I wasn’t that fond of my “meat tenderizer” hanging off my back, but this new beast? It’s wicked awesome. It’s got glowy runes and a flanged head that looks like a metallic spider up and died at the end of it. I feel proud to wield it.
So in the meantime, I have a lot of side projects in the works for my main character. I have set a goal to have her fully explore the world and finish all of the main quests that I guess I sped past. And yeah, that means Cost of Magic, and every time someone talks about that with raspy pain in their voice and tears in their eyes, it makes me want to do it all the more.
Issue 8 just looks like it’ll have so much for us to do: the Cat God quest chain (must get my filth kitty!), the League of Monster Slayers book, and the new scenarios/augments. It’s safe to say that the community is just starving for this content. I’m not that enthralled with the Whispering Tide event going on right now, especially the “dump crafting mats here” portion. Maybe it’ll pick up more steam later on, but it’s not that much of a diversion.
