No, it is not the fact that Mawry has a Ceremonial Blade that she has not yet used in the Threnal arena fight.
Nor is it Mawry’s growing pile of crystallized experience points. She saves those until she needs a small amount of XP to reach a milestone, or for after her next TR when a few thousand XP matter more.
It is the eight Raise Cakes. Eight! That means Mawry is accumulating them faster than she can spend them. Huh? Mawry?
Even though this is the same Mawry that once used a raise cake to avoid having to repeat the Swiped Signet?
Even though this is the same Mawry that once blew through seven raise cakes on a single quest?
Yes, that Mawry, has eight raise cakes in her inventory.
Have I suddenly gotten careful with my Turbine Points? Have I suddenly, after seven years, gotten better at playing the game? Less reckless, less thoughtless? Have I turned a corner?
No, of course not, none of that. I suspect it has a lot more to do with the fact that Heroic quests get easier over time, my character gets a little stronger each life, and Mawry’s last few incarnations have all been unusually survivable character designs.
So in other words, luck, that probably won’t last.
Nonetheless, I have eight raise cakes, and I love each of them so much.
