    I haven't been playing for a few months, just collecting my monthly prizes, but decided to see what was new and WoW, I am impressed:
    -the hitching is way down...
    -the loading of scenes are way faster...
    -I played from level 71 to 72 in no time flat...
    -I decided to do some crafting, mainly raw materials and noticed my max per was 50 for most of my refinements... That's a good # to refine...
    -I decided to continue building Archery, made tons of arrows... I was using a polearm...
    -I checked all my skills and turned all but 7 off, what a difference that made in gains...
    -All my gear I made myself and repaired it all, hey wasn't cotos able to do repairs at one time to do max repairs?
    -While using the maps, I noticed these Blue mouse overs that would tell me Quest hint as to what I needed to do in those cities...
    -While in these cities, those blue markers are very helpful, I had gotten lost doing quest, but these help a lot...
    -hit level 73 and decided to write about it...

    So what's everyone else been doing?

    They still are. It just takes 100 now (after the 1->100 split).

    Bought a few sheep at market, turned them loose to graze in my yard, and wondered why they went missing in a few minutes. Anyone seen my sheep?

    Welcome back SmokerKGB,
    Good to here your having fun on your return.
    There have been alot of improvements.

    I have done a bit of everything this week,
    Mysterious swamp for some tree's and gators, Ruined Keep for some trolls.
    Crafted some new legs for a guildy, ended up having to craft about 30 of them to get the result we wanted, Well worth it...

    Did a few guild runs to Tartarus and UT, got myself a creepy doll artifact from the little kid at the bottom of the hill. another win.:D
    Then read a post that Elrond was changing the look of Crafters Town so had to go check that out. Ended up placing a lot and decorating for a few hours.

    Now back home and getting ready to head to Blood Bay and see what's going on there.

    I made a 20 minute video of myself running in place with some chickens and added in some wind chime sounds. It's a pretty masterful ambient experience.

    Tinkered with the animal spawners for POTs. I like them. If you kill one you cannot skin them. It is a good start. :)

    Ive been drawing up both my end game plan and my RP backstory for my avatar. With an incomming Name change, I felt like this was all due, so I am slowly accumulating my experience at Tartarus, and during the downtime Ive been planning Violette 2.0!

    I want to get invested in both RP and PvP, but with a RP that limits somewhat my abilities, whichhould make things interesting to say the least!

    Ohh and working tk get my enchantment levels to 100 so I get major enchants on my own, so I can stop relying on everyone!

    Welcome back BTW Smoker.

    This week I....

    • Spent several hours doing Corpion Patrol in the desert, to cull their numbers and stop their encroachment upon civilization.
    • Recovered 2 pieces of gear from what appeared to be unfortunate tamers who were eaten in their attempts to make friends with said Corpions
    • Packaged up Corpion venom in boutique glass vials with little red and green ribbons to use as stocking-stuffers for my weapon-wielding friends
    • Befriended a stray cat that wandered into Rinzai. It was really skinny so I put out a bowl of milk
    • Befriended another stray cat that wandered into Rinzai, it also looked skinny, so I put out another bowl of milk
    • Put together a business case with the Rinzai government to start the mass production of milk-bowls "just in case" more kitties arrive.
    • Did some enchanting work for a couple of regular clients
    • Shuffled lot markers around in town for someone who wanted to fit a town where two villages once were and it was a lot more complicated than it should have been but we were victorious.
    • Tracked down and clicked all the fireworks boxes
    • Picked up several items that I'd previously thrown on the floor in the pavilion and stored them neatly away ensuring I'll never find them again
    • Scheduled a deco-consultation for upcoming holiday projects
    I have done all of these things to avoid:
    • Helping scoffer plant/water crops
    Its actually been reasonably productive, considering...

    This week I....
    • Watered my crops
    • Complained to Shimizu that she wasn't helping
    • Planted more crops
    • Moaned at Shimizu that no one was helping
    • Picked some crops
    • Attempted to burn down Shimizu's crafting pavilion for failing to help me but realised I couldn't fit any more Braziers on her lot because deco limit was mocking me.

    but if you burn down her crafting pavilion she'll be too busy rebuilding it to help you water

    Docking at your port soon
    Killed thousands of elves in the Rise, took their money, their goods and stocked my vendor. Heard I was being reported for abuse to elves.

    Heard disturbing news that yours truly was killed by elves and a specific body part was to be bronzed and put on display at a Museum or carnival ride attraction.

    Worked on a thread to save the pirate from death. Using remaining brain cells to make it believable “Grins”. It’s tough to be a pirate nowadays.

    Mined gold from Etceter Mine. I swear those undead love to gang up on me in the middle once I open up the breakable walls :D
    Fishing. Hmmm... Yeah. No sharks to be find in Elads Lighthouse. Cept for the one or two people have pulled in. Sharks fear the lighthouse!!
    Played some ESO and made it to level 18. Nice having storage and a bed in my penthouse apartment. Wait. You didn't mean including ESO did you? ;-)

    I watched the ENTIRE 20 minutes. It was sublime. I feel so at peace right now.

    I didn’t plan the comet coming up right behind me, but that was kind of a nice touch.

    The guard walking up to you at 4:27 was kind of funny too.
