YES! Thanks very much to DragonChyld, sabregirl + hubby, Sultan/Nicolas/--Izabelle--, and slash for helping us out! (And anyone I forgot). Your help was amazing, and there's no way we could have done it without you. We had tried it 2 nights prior, and had a ridiculously worse outcome. Fade and I said that we felt bad about not being able to help that much, but we know that we'll be helping others do the same soon. The experience and knowledge gained will last a long, long time!
And congrats to Fade, Vale, and Marik! We finally made it, after our many hours of questing together. This has been a TON of fun, and I can't wait to begin adventuring into some of the other areas of the game with you guys (and everyone else) now!
I'm sure we'll do just that! I spoke with sabregirl online tonight, and she mentioned a couple of areas to try out. We went through the Shadow Elves, and their tree-top fort. Pretty cool place really, with a couple of decent mid-level items as well. She mentioned hitting the Tomb of Shadows (or summat), but we were too tired after the tree area to tackle a mind-bending maze.
Any other suggestions are more than welcome! (Remember....we're JUST NOW immo, level 40)
