Tribute for a fallen friend

We have all met that guy at some point in our life. The one that seems so nice all the time, and to everybody. The guy that nobody could find a bad word to say about, the one who is friends with everyone.

You may indeed have one in your guild right now. He is the guy that says hello and goodnight each day. The one that always offers to help you achieve a goal even though he will have no gain from doing so. He is the guy that can jump between inner circles of different groups of people, the link between the masses and the glue which holds them together. One who is always positive no matter how many times you make mistakes.

For many of us, that guy was Xent.

Touring Arak on Justin’s chopper – Part 2

To recap,  found this abandoned bike on the beach:

Well it looked abandoned to me

Well it looked abandoned to me

And so far Justin has not come forward to claim said bike. I did try leaving a message with Falrogh but he did seem a little tipsy at the time so I also left a notice with the Explorers league. Ok so they may have made it into a paper aeroplane…but I did try!

Ok so what did I find?

Firstly  I found Shrooms! .. And not just any mushrooms but under water ones. Huge sets of mushrooms under the sea.

‘Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter’

And then there were the disco shrooms:

Or is it a UFO?

And the glowing shrooms amongst the glowing quest items (which I didn’t have a quest for)

Shrooms

That glowing outlined lump was not lootable tut

Ok enough shrooms, but I felt they needed a mention somewhere as someone has put some effort into them.

After taking the bike for a ride along the beach I found the remains of a Goblin car crash:

One very Hotrod

And upon further investigation I also found a little goblin camp not far away. Outside the house I found somewhere to repair, not as cute as Jeeves though eh.

The original Jeeves

The owner of this hut also shared the same love of bananas to adorn the walls. Is this a thing? do all Goblins love bananas? Hmmm

Ba na na ba na na na

 

And yet another cutesy crafted lamp, however the choice of artwork is slightly different in taste hehe

Goblin pin-up

The Goblin that lived here also had his very own fighter planes, albeit a scared looking one.

Fighter planes are not all fearless

People really do seem to discard their vehicles easy these days, I found this little buggy along the beach strip

Love the artwork on it though, reminded me of the shark from the Brawlers Guild

Found even more goblin carts and supplies..

but apparently this one was not to be tampered with. As I found out after being jumped by this rare Goblin.

A rocket that seems really happy to shoot you in the face!

I was surprised but not as surprised as mining for some ore and having this thing pop out and try and eat me!

After killing him though he did at least leave me some nice extra loot in his pockets so I look forward to meeting a few more of these in the expansion.

 

 

 

 

 

Touring Arak on Justin’s Chopper – Part 1

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.

Is this 2 v 1 or 2 v 3?

Is this 2 v 1 or 2 v 3?

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….

Rwaaarrr

to it’s sweet face whilst being left to it’s own devices.

Shroomhat

Dur, do you like my mushroom hat? ‘

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.

Yes, I do enjoy wrestling. why?

What? More work?

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.

Skull

Oddly shaped skull

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)

Fishing

 

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 🙁

Duckgone

Poor Jingo lost his toy

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.
