Yesterday Kauri & I were able to get some help from a friend of ours named Azari, it was very much appreciated. We were successfull in getting Kauri’s Garlaige Coffer key for her rdm pants. We woke up Kinkykitty, then she joined us as she also needed a coffer for her rdm, so we had our four people needed for the switches to open the banishing gates. We were able to find one coffer for Kinkykitty, who needed to go to work, so she logged out.
Then we aggroed two Droma’s and some bats, to which I prematurely panicked and teleported us out. Met back up at Garlaige Citadel, and found another member to join our pt to help with the switches, and we began again, we ended our search shortly after that as two members died, and one needed to go anyway.
Total time played… 7 hours.. about 2 hrs looking for key, and the rest of the time running around trying to find the coffers (which I also have to do for this area, but I want Kauri to get her’s first, as I already have a couple pieces of my AF). I really like this game alot, and I enjoy the fact that it encourages you to meet people and team up, however, I sometimes just wish there was a little more ability to do some things on your own. 7 hours is a long time to take out of someone else’s day, and we have such an adversion to being a burden on anyone, especially our friends. We did though really enjoy our time with Azari as he is very knowlegable and kind in his suggestions of how to do things.
The sad part is that when Kinkykitty logged back in later that night, she ended up finding the coffer again, but she had already gotten hers. I’m thinking maybe what we’ll try is seeing if someone can help us get past the second banishing gate, then maybe see how we do at finding it if we log back in at some slower hours when not as many people are on. When I found my coffer for my pants in crawler’s nest, it was very very early in the morning, right as most JP players were logging out, and just before many NA players were logging in. The trick will be keeping invis & snk on
