Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

Golden Child

I can't believe it took me a whole week to get this posted, but there's been a lot going on, I suppose. Last weekend Funcom put on a Golden Weekend, including a new outfit ("Extra Heavy Metal"), and a chance to fight Samsu Nasiru (aka Goldzilla). The big deal—at least for me—was the chance to get double AP for working on the wheel. Over the course of the weekend, I managed to gain several hundred ability points and over 21 abilities on the wheel, finishing out the 21-point abilities and putting a significant dent in the 27-point tier.

Grinding the Goldzilla fight (12 TIMES Saturday and Sunday) got a little boring, so I also ran through the Last Train to Cairo mission series. It's still my favorite of the DLC Issues, I can't get over how awesome the Train instance is. One of these days I am going to have to get the Issue 9, The Black Signal, and run through Tokyo with Scooter.

This weekend has been more about getting settled into Rift, not to mention replacing a ceiling fan that malfunctioned in September. It's already significantly cooler in the living room, which is where I spend most of my time gaming.

  1. So your reward for the hardcore grind is S&M gear? Seems...oddly appropriate. (-;

    1. It's based on a design already in game. :) Not a reward for the grind, but was available in the store for about $10. If they hold true to the Golden Weekend items, it's now $100.

  2. I also did pretty well this last Golden Weekend. I netted myself enough AP to finish my ability wheel (finally), a purple Breaching Signet, a purple DPS augment, and enough bullion to upgrade my head talisman to 10.3.

    And thankfully, very few flares.

    1. Sounds like an awesome haul. I only ended up with a few flares. Mostly got signets and bullion.
