Weekend Wrap up

Well it was a GREAT weekend for AION!  All three of my characters managed to level up.  Crowe clawed and scratched his way to 18 and is still haunting Impetusium.  Mojeaux made his way from 18 to 19 while making a few BC runs ~ but not before Morituri, my Templar, hit the big 20 and ended up making the move from Altgard to Morheim (I can't wait to dive in)!


 
 Crowe getting it on with a Wild Tayga


I have to say that getting Morituri to 20 was a blast!  It was the most fun I've had in game to date, bar none!  Notice the mediocre armor at the start of my night, below:


 
Looking less than professional...

Being that BC is the first major "dungeon" available to you as you hit your upper teens, there are always groups forming up to go and delve into it's mysteries.  So, it wasn't surprising that after a short wait, there was an opening in a BC group.  It was the first opening of many over the weekend.  Anyway, once the call came, I eagerly dropped what I was doing to finally go and experience BC in all it's glory for myself.
Chieftain Kumbaron was no match for our fury!

And man o man, did I ever!  We started our first foray by storming the front entrance and then quickly working our way around all of the known spawns looking for the named Mau and their drops.  In many cases, we hung around and changed channels at each spawn for more opportunities at the great gear being dropped.  It almost felt like cheating.  Almost.  Anyway, as it turned out, more often than not, I was the only tank in the group and even when I wasn't, and there was a Gladiator in the group, the lion's share of the plate still ended up with me.  So, as you can imagine, it wasn't long before Morituri was sporting an almost complete set of Mau armor...


 
How you like me now?  Notice the shiny new threads..

During our many expeditions deep into the heart of Black Claw Village that night, we hit Chief Kumbaron several times and the drops just kept coming.  I think I scored this shield during one of the beat downs:

 

And I wasn't the only one getting lucky.  It seemed that everyone, in each of the parties that I ventured into BC with, got some nice gear for their efforts.  Drops were so abundant that we even managed to pick up a few things for our alts.  Another added bonus, was that I was able to finish the BC quest line, culminating with a rather anti-climatic boss fight...

 


 A cleric and I were all it took... well, at least it DID look cool.


After finally giving Morituri a well earned rest, Crowe and Mojeaux took up the rest of my time, with Mojeaux hogging the majority of what was left of it with a few BC runs of his own.  All in all it was a very satisfying and rewarding weekend of AION.  I'm really looking forward to Morheim and I think that I will find it a great challenge to keep Morituri sidelined while I catch Crowe and Mojeaux up...

I am not sure how you find the time to play 3 characters, and keep them all within levels. My hats off to you.

Lots of lost sleep :-) I have a full time job and a wife, that believe it or not, enjoys my company! So a lot of my play time is done from around 10pm to 1230am most nights. I'm up for work by 6am. On weekend nights I go for a bit longer and then an odd hour here and there weekend mornings. Now that I've hit my 20's and leveling has slowed down a little I'm rethinking my commitment to keeping all of my characters at or around the same level. Also, my friend, who recently started playing, partly due to my urging, has hit 17 with a Cleric. So unless he develops a fondness for alts, I may be forced to focus on one character in order to adventure together. We'll see!
