This past weekend, I played a little more on my blood elf mage named Shivasnow (obviously named after my favorite FFXI avatar). I’ve kinda been enjoying that one lately. She levels pretty quickly as she is paired with my Husband’s character Ifritsfire, and he enjoys that character a little more at the moment.. In two short playing sessions, we are both level 16 mages, and that was even with scraping our characters and restarting once.
The goal for her is to be an Ice Mage, and Ifritsfire is a Fire mage, (if it wasn’t obvious). I have never (even in FFXI) been a fan of staff’s, so I trained her on a sword. She received a “Ley Orb” from a quest that gives her mana back every 15 minutes if used, and it looks really cool. Its the glowing ball in her hand pictured above.
It is all so odd to me to think of basically a sword toting blackmage, lol.. but its been fun. The one thing I’ve noticed is that when you do the 300x exp pairings with your refer-a-friend partner, it can get hard to come up with the gold/silver/copper to keep up with your spells and such. Thats really the only complaint, and its not much of one really. I’m hoping that as we level, we’ll find a place we can catch up on that a little bit.
On my solo characters, money doesn’t seem to be a problem to keep up, I almost always have exactly what I need for the next set of spells, course I’m not a shopper, and maybe I’m not doing my characters justice by being content with the armor I recieve off mobs and quests.. ah well..
My Shaman Karynna is level 26 now. I spent some time in Ashenvale, and Stonetalon Mountains, but after some frustrations over trying to safely pull Bloodfury harpy’s of various sorts, I decided to come back to that quest later, when I am a little higher level. I can take two if linked, but a third mob, and I am done, so either I need to get stronger or better.. lol.
Anyhow I moved her to Darnassius (sp?) last night to see what I can find there.. I think I need to find where actual places are, that are good for that level. I’m either too high or too low.
While in the new city, I figured out the Bank system. So basically a Mog House..
