    works for me

    Normally I use server time, but I forgot what time Zone the server is located in :oops:

    weather will be back to summer weather by then. Last night I could barely stay on the www, so didn't bother trying the game, gets frustrating losing connection while in the middle of something, so to avoid any frustration I didn't bother.
    Record rain in some locations
    but here in the next 5 days we'll go from highs of 62f (16.67c) to 102f (38.89c) :eek:

    Sounds good to me too.. I always look forward to group activities like that with good people so I'll do my best to be on.

    Sorry if I haven't been on as much lately, about to log in now for a little play. I've been flat out doing a rebuild of one of my websites.. perhaps it's of interest to some ppl?

    Sci-Fi MMORPG.

    Looking forward to totw this weekend!

    nope, this is a rarity. last time it happened like that (been some others in-between but less extreme) was in 1887.

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=

    yeah meant to take the Trader and Enfo and park them at ToTW, But past 2 days I revisited playing the Engy :D

    Now I've started Engineers in the past but never went beyond it's baby steps so this class was still new to me. This one is still deep in the Baby stage, a bumpy start and been sitting there till this revisit. 1st day not getting the results I was wanting to see to keep interest, but I did have a couple good Pistols that made playing easier.
    I wanted to see how he fared against the Nomads at 14, not well.
    I decided I'll need to go back to the Boring Subway to level up . . it may be Boring but leveling is fast there
    so second day went a Farming for same pistols but higher QL, found some but slightly too high of QL. A wrangle would cover most of the req's, but it was Burst Req that is pausing me to equip them. Then I logged in the Engy went in the Subway to gain a level or 2 . . what's this . . . . something in my head . . . . . some squeaks . . groans . . . gears starting to move sound . . . dust, and rust breaking and dispersing in the air . . . . wait . . . . WAIT . .
    Wait :eek: A Wrangle ... Hey Wrangles add to Nano Skills too. So I logged in my Trader went and bought the nano program of the highest Wrangle he can do without the need to Ransack, which would be the 27 Wrangle.
    Then cast the Wrangle on the engy, now I have a better Bot . . Yay .. I was dead tired by that time, but I had to test this . So out to Newland Desert I go.
    I stayed to deal with 4 Nomads before logging of to get some rest. It was a good feeling, day started "Meh", but ended with " oh this is soo cool:D"

    So here he is after his first 4 Nomad kills .. guess he lost an eye in the process :? hehe

    Now has Eye patch, Duck Lantern and shoulder pads .. and a few other items but they are in the Pack

    Look at me Now

    :D wouldn't ya know it, I was headed to the Acid Pond, to do some hunting near there, then the message pops up that the Desert Rider has arrived . ok the pond can wait, strange group there this time, as in a very selfish group, all the High levels would not Invite any one that was below level 200 :eek: . . eh what ever I just want to loot a Fanatic Nomad any ways, only thing that's going to drop from the Rider that I really dont need but would want is the Clio . . well the armor would had been cool but that's a long time to hold.
    Fanatic's even Grey to me (I'm lvl 20), they are just one shot kills, but those are the mobs that drop the leet mech, the Visors, and the Painting.
    I had vicinity loot on, WOW, why are everyone looting the same nodrop unique nano .. good thing I got my kill (actually second fanatic) . . yeah not a member of the team still applies, so kill your fanatic and get your Visors and painting and leet mech
    All I really wanted was the Leet mech pet, for some reason the painting would not click over, no worries, I don't have an apartment yet any ways, never use them :w
    I was so excite about getting the new pet I forgot to try on the visors and see how they look LOL
    but here ya go, think I'll run around in the Subway now showing off my new pet LOL
    [​IMG]

    yeah it was cool that the engie here got one, but he'll be the least played character, Kinda sorta.


    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    I didn't get to run ToTW, it was just me and Sente, and I didn't ask Sente if they wanted to try without help. many more days to do it, so nothing loss, gave me time to play more with the engineer.
    Speaking of which, I really goofed on the IP. After reading the recipe on making the Engineer Pistol, I see I had misinterpret when I could start using it, I could had started from the get-go (after starter Island). So the IP that was spent to use the baby and Mini Monster, could had been spent on the Trade Skills to craft the Engineer pistol.
    It's just a temporary pause, nothing major, but still a disappointment :oops::(

    Yes you are correct Sente.

    It was suggested that the run be done on a Saturday or Sunday...well our Saturday is Imfir's Friday...therefore I interpreted Sunday as being the day.

    I actually logged in an hour ago and got my bot all sorted, just to make sure I was ready for if you guys logged in early.

    oh yeah and RE the TOTW.. we are ready and waiting at the time agreed upon.. and so far no sign of anyone else :p

    But that's cool we'll hang around till you guys are on.

    It's ok, I find this timezone thing very confusing as well.

    DOH! forgot my Saturday's I log in later, tho this one I could had logged in normally, I did still waited to the normal time I log on on Saturdays, which is later, I spaced it about the time and to mention my Saturdays I'm later by an hour or 2 :oops:

    Glad you guys waited, very glad . .

    -=-=-=-=-=--=--=-=-=-=-

    on another story
    sometimes I will log in early and play one of the Starter Island characters I have. The one I have named as Island Fixer is a Blast to play . . but he's to be my Starter Island Mule on that account, So I had to roll a new one "Bulloxix". Who is a Atrox Fixer. He has that Desperado Funktastic look going for him :D
    not some of my best screen shots, but all I have of him to show :oops:

    for the past day n half . . wait , we can call it 2 days now . . I've been looking for a location other then ToTW to continue leveling, I finally found that spot

    [​IMG]

    South East Corner of 4 Holes . It's perfect :) . . well almost perfect . The thing that keeps it from being 100% perfect for my level is , the MObs are tightly grouped, and these guys are social, so pulling just one out of the herd is some work.
    The mobs on the right side of the river are lower level, but I only get half the EXP from them then I would get with these guys on the left, but they are easier to work with. Also if I did actually get over whelm the Zone wall is just a few steps away.

    This may sound Oxymoron , but it would work, if a full party of Soloist were to hunt there, leveling would be fast. Even if you worked together , you can always have one doing the pulling, the rest munch on it like a school of Piranhas :D, there are a ton of Mobs there from QL 47 - 59, average is 54-55.
    You don't actually have to go to the South East corner where I did, I went there because they were less dense, making it a bit easier to solo manage the pulls. these guys start right outside where the Whompa's are, So there really isn't much running to start getting EXP, but they are social and they are thick in that location.

    Also not far and just inside Andromeda , if you head west for a minute maybe 2, there are 2 Dyna's a 40 & 45, So you always have them to play with
    here was the 45 one, kinda looks like a Mommy and her litter :p

    [​IMG]

    I probably could had leveled faster soloing on those Skeletons dudes near Lien in ToTW, but I would always be getting Ninja invites from everyone that past me, or KS. I didn't want to deal with any of that.

    And there ya go, a good spot for Froobs if you need somewhere else to level besides ToTW and between the levels 50-60, After 60 or 60+ you can cross over to Andromeda , because over there they are 59+

    yeah it's a good thread.. i've had it bookmarked for a while. It's just a shame about the trolls with their usual smart-alec comments bringing the thread down. I believe the graphics engine will be out eventually.. we just have to be patient, these things take time.

    Well I'm glad I found that thread. it had some images I was unaware of, I was worried we'd still have the straight line edges with the new engine, but they are remaking some of the NPC's and characters . . which may be why it's taking longer then everyone wants.
    if they didn't do that it still would look DX7, but in a DX9 world :?
    I can wait

    Looking forward to seeing how the new engine turns out. Not sure how you guys can play on RK1 in NSW as it's all but unplayable for me here in QLD. It's the main reason why I picked RK2 all those years ago ...

    Unplayable? how so? We've been playing for years in NSW on RK1 with no major probs. we get occasional disconnects i guess but for the most parts it's fine.

    Latency is so high I just find it unplayable. Perhaps it's just me though. Will try again when the new engine is released!

    today has been a very good day

    first a stranger was giving my Advy Piggyback rides

    [​IMG]

    Then after a level, I decided to play the Engie, just to get a short break.
    He got the Eremite DM, but with the engy's pet, that went quick, and got 2 dings, actually didn't know I had 2, or that I was done, it went so fast, and both levels were at thesame time so only heard the one ding. I was running around there for a while wonder dang these guys are really hiding, when I happen to glance at the mission, and saw the message that I had 17hours and 50 something minutes . . Oh LOL guess I've been done and no wonder I can't find any more

    So next I decided to just work on some Nomads, but before I got started there, Nef was logged in, I happen to have 2 Russian Good-days I was not using any more and thought they could use them got stuck chatting for a while, so by the time I got back to the Engy his Buffs were half gone :oops:
    did another level almost 2, but now buffs are gone and the Bot is not doing anything, figured I would turn in what I have and take a break. I turn in, and saw, I woould Unlock the Desert rider, there was no one else out there, I wasn't sure if enough higher levels would show up, so I took it to 4999, then posted on all chats German OOC too, one other did show up and then another and someone placed that last item in there to unlock the Rider . . wow . . They were pouring in from all over.

    I was just kinda standing there, figuring well wrong character to really get an Invite, but I did a Shout any ways , The Dark mentiond go to the Present and Tell Eqi (don't know the whole spelling) so I dashed over there, and as a couple of you know and experience anything my mouse goes over opens a trade , well that happen but I got the invite . weee :D

    almost died on the Riders first AoE, oh my I'm just a lil too close, I was finally in a spot where I can still range but outside of the AoE.
    First time I was in a winning raid where it was not like a pack of piranhas looting, it was very orderly , the Leader EqiSomething, rolled who gets first dibs .. OH MY I was #1 Over all, was asked what I wanted Armor or Clio, I said clio, it could be a while till I could wear the armor any ways, this is my least played character :eek:

    and now here it is
