Ethalos, my Tempest of Set has hit level 73. He plays with the family guild. Tabari, my Herald of Xotli is 79 and just 6 bars from 80.
Basically Tabari has been on morning duty, and tackling contracts and running what is called the Slaughterhouse. He also has several quests yet to complete in Kheshatta, the region of Stygia where Thoth-Amons castle reigns.
He does not have much further and will start the final road of quests for the storyline. I have not debated what I will do with him once I hit 80. I am unsure of raiding with him at this point. But, due to how he does combat, it sure would be a blast.
Ethalos of course travels with the family pack, and progression is FAST due to being grouped and being able to tackle quests quickly and efficiently.
We have been in Kheshatta, but have still some quests in Atzels Fortress zone.
But, all of this is moot, as the big news is the Guild City.
We tackled this as a 3 person team. My old main, Amatheon, became an Architect, and we have been working on the build of the city gradually.
We have all of the main Professions and standard buildings in place (Temple, Keep, Barracks). One set of walls and tower up to the gates (the gates have been built as well).
We still have about 17 wall pieces and 3 towers left, then we can move to the inner wall.
Once that is complete, we will be Tier One!
This has actually proven to be a major fun project for us. From working on the Trader to sell goods, collecting gold, gathering resources...we really made an effort.
I can see how tough this is, and with just 3 of us, I think it is pretty impressive work.
I think the best part is it allows us to do something different than the norm of questing and killing, and it has been a blast.
Well, that is all for now. Our main goal at this point is to have our family team hit level 80 and hit Tier one on the city. After this we will make some decisions on what we want to do. As long as Funcom can't get content out, then it is hard to say where we will go.
No other MMO works for us, so we could all go our separate ways...hard to say.
For now, all we know is we are happy, and the family that plays together...stays together...eh?
