Moving Forward

Posted: September 2, 2012 in Perceptive Gaming


Recently, I took my first step in Eveningstar. I had taken a look at it while it was on Lammania, but never really got that look I wanted to take. Basically, before I had zerged with a group through the Demonweb and when I got to Eveningstar, I didn’t do much. I didn’t even have the sound on, so I was quite amazed hearing the GM voice for Elminster when I went through it. Now, I have a limited experience with the Forgotten Realm setting, but somehow everything about it seemed to capture me. I can see why so many people enjoy the Forgotten Realm setting. It truly is captivating.

The next thing I did was take a look at some of the quest. Now, I don’t have MOTU so, I was limited to the new U15 pack as a VIP member, but it was still quite enjoyable aside from the poor XP, but that is neither here or there. I enjoyed it. That’s all I could really ask for out of a game. Whether it gives me good gear and XP and all that good stuff is just a side thing, but what I really want to point out here is that I enjoyed it. Very much. It was totally different from a lot of the quest I was used to and it gave me a whole new feel. I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way, but… ME TOO!

That said, I’m gonna have to get the MOTU at some point. I really would love to explore the King’s Forest. Just what I’ve heard about it sounds extremely exciting. But I’ll probably be stuck for a couple months till I can afford to pay the money for it. It’s kind of out of my budget at the moment. Makes me sad, but I’ll survive. However, the whole thing makes me want to make a Druid and really focus on it. So, I’m looking at TRing Kobay soon enough into a Druid. With this being my 3rd Monk life, it will be hard to let go of my monk, but at the same time, I don’t have much reason to do another life of him. I get to explore other classes better. I’m looking at a lot of my gear and a lot of it will transfer over easily to a Druid Life. I think I’ll go with a monk splash too. I know, with the whole AC thing, I might be better off not, but… I had the gear to support it. I wouldn’t mind the 2 extra feats including Stunning Fist and Evasion.

Now, I just need to decide if I want to focus more on Natural Fighting Feats or TWF. Such a tough one, but I think I have the gear to support either one. I actually just recently upgraded my Dreamsplitter with ForceBurst and got the Crystal Disk to add Holy on top of that. It’ll be some nice damage and with an Arti in the party, I’ll have the perfect DR breaker Boss and Trash beater. Should be fun.

Either way, I’m really looking forward to it. I may stick in the high levels for a bit though so I can run through the King’s Forest and such, once I get that. I still got a wait though. I still have 13 or so more shrouds to go till I get my cleanser for my GS gear. I need it. Got my ConOp HP goggles and just finished a SP Necklace of positive with CHA Skills. I also managed to get my hands on several other nice pieces of loot to help my Druid out.

Well, I’ll stop boring you guys with my random nonsense.

Until Next time… any advice for a Druid Life from those that have played one? and What is your favorite part of the Forgotten Realms so far?
