After borrowing Justin’s Chopper I was able to make my way around Arak a lot faster, so I thought I would share some more sights and random finds.
The place itself is actually quite beautiful: full of wild flowers and golden sunsets. The Shattered hand of course are adding their own bit of savagery. For instance compare the same beast being aggravated by orcs….
to it’s sweet face whilst being left to it’s own devices.
The Shattered Hand have several different camps in this area and boy they are mean! I think when it comes to questing I will be enlisting the help of my guild mates as these guys respawn fast whilst solo, squishy and on beta at least. I managed to get a photo of one of the rare Orcs but he didn’t seem too impressed and kept hiding his face …. maybe he was just shy.
I did manage to get some sneaky ones whilst in wisp form .. er I mean I deliberately took them like that because the effect looks so cool.
There are also a hell of a lot of bones and skulls hanging around but I have yet to meet the thing that this huge skull came out of.
Along the way obviously I did bump into a few things that wanted to kill me and I was happy to find that I managed to loot the knowledge of fishing.. Am not sure if this is just for beta or something to stay but I quite like the nice surprise of a drop like that. It also meant I felt obliged to use it and try out the fishing (which I very rarely do)
Then I caught a bait so I thought best use that too, and I managed to bag cooking, first aid and an alchemy quest too. but the most awesome was — AWESOMEFISH!!
Well if they keep this idea of things dropping with fishing or killing then it might give me personally a better reason to fish. Obviously the drop rate won’t be as lucky however it is still a nice idea to learn other crafts.
The best find I had fishing though i was rather excited for a rubber duck!! … I looted, checked it was for keeps then used it to throw for my lil otter. I was way to slow getting the screen shot though, and it was not in my toy box so I guess it was a one use but it had a cool down time 🙁
I had to console poor little Jingo after he lost his toy in the sea and I could not fish it back up. So I shall leave you for now with this landscape shot so you don’t feel the guilt of this crying panda and sadface otter.
