Time is so limited at the moment, work is busy and after months of forced inaction things are slowly starting to progress on the whole moving country thing. Gaming as a result isn’t much of a priority, more’s the pity – as when work is stressful I want to game more not less…
What I am managing, for the most part, is to get in my morning and evening sessions in Everquest 2 in order to sort my Overseer missions and, some days at least to do the Familiar’s Wild and/or daily reward tasks. I’ve temporarily parked my main character in Lavastorm to pick up the series of quests for Overseer linked to the Scorched Sky festival.
Yesterday I had a particularly large haul of rewards, things that I as a casual player of the game most value. For me mercenaries, agents (the Overseer characters) and rare crafting materials are the most interesting items. Gear upgrades are also welcome, of course, especially for alt characters.
The other items: the many potions that I never remember to use, the infuser and fragments of planar energy are of little meaning or interest. As I commented on a recent Neverwinter post of Shintar’s, such rewards are of little interest to me in any MMORPG.
In one day, admittedly with a full set of purple and yellow ‘quality’ quests completed, I received a haul of four different agents and a new mercenary. The latter needs a minimal effort to claim, since you have to go hire a mercenary the first time from where they wait in the virtual world. I’ll have to set aside time to do that so I have another helper for my Overseer success chance!
