My last week of freely writing and playing Warhammer Online is coming to a close. I'm still on vacation through next week but will be cooking and entertaining for Thanksgiving, like many other Americans. Here are a few pictures from two random and unrelated adventures from this week.
This week concludes with roughly 23K word count worth of fiction writing, Rank 33 on my Bright Wizard, Rank 11 on my Warrior Priest, obtained the first tier reward from the Heavy Metal event and lots of household chores completed, including a variety of homemade sweets and frozen desserts.
I hadn't planned on playing my WP at all until the new classes were released. Unfortunately, my bank and backpack are completely full of herbs that require water to be turned into potions. My Cultivating is maxed at 200. My Apothecary is at 168. I can either start selling the herbs even though I need them to finish out leveling and want the potions, spend all my gold on the expensive water being sold on the Auction House or get out there and gather my own water. I opted to bring out the WP and set her to scavenging me a free source of water.
Despite the population issues I'm still having fun. Sometimes it starts to feel like a grind when I've been killing the same mobs repeatedly trying to gain Influence. When it starts feeling that way I queue up for Scenarios. If Order is sucking butt in them and it's to annoying to stand, I log off and go do something else.
Of course I want all the bugs fixed, the very awkward aspects of the game interface refined. the combat made less sluggish and the questionable ways in which contribution are attributed ironed out. However, if Santa Claus is taking any early Christmas requests, what I really want most are more players along the caliber of all the great people I've encountered so far, to come crashing through the door and into the game. :-)
