There are two milestone days when you are leveling a character. Just to be clear, by “leveling” I mean actually running quests for experience. I do not mean clicking on a stone and jumping up 3.5 million XP.
But I digress: back to the milestones. There are two of them:
- The day you hit level 12
- The day you hit level 20
Level 20 is an awesome milestone because it means transitioning into Epics. You can Heroic TR again if you like. You’ve beaten the heroic levels, and entered a whole new way to play. A very dramatic change, and one that I look forward to achieving every time I create a character, or play one of my old alternates, or re-reincarnate one of my main characters.
Level 20 is a form of victory and it feels victorious. But in some ways, level 12 is even better. Because for characters that have reincarnated, level 12 means I get to go to the bank and take out that character’s green steel weaponry.
Suddenly, my character that was already pretty good is great! Suddenly I am one-hitting some things, and easily carving through others. Suddenly, quests that were hard, aren’t! Suddenly, my little character is a super-powered superstar, blowing up everything that is silly enough to get in his or her way.
Last night was Greensteel Day again for Mawry who has been assiduously working her way back through the heroics after adding some Stone of XP-fueled past life feats. Mawry is an old character, and was around back when the Shroud was the end game. She spent a lot of time in there and has a lot to show for it: four dual-shard greensteel rapiers (Lightning, Mineral, Radiance, Vacuum) and three matching short swords (Lightning, Mineral, Vacuum).
That is a whole lotta firepower, coming online all at once.
‘Ware Evil Doers!
Mawry is coming for you
packing greensteel heat
I wouldn’t want to be a bad guy right now.
Happy Greensteel Day Mawry!
