Slowly Falling and Slowing Rising

I unlocked my glider during a quest last session and promptly launched of a cliff to fly slowly down to the township. I have to say that the flight was a heck of a lot of fun with it ending when I crashed gracefully *cough* into a house.

Errr look out below – uncontrolled healer incoming!

As I leveled up I managed to pickup a neat looking bow and fill out the rest of my plate gear save for the helm which remains leather. I also swapped to a scepter now – had a really nice blue one drop which was much better spirit(healing stat) than the sword I was swinging about.

Along the way I also picked up some “plate” armor that did the thing I’ve been impressed with the armor in AA not doing – the “we don’t really need armor on our vitals as a women” look. Its had a cold snap in the weather here, despite being spring time and I was feeling colder just looking at my poor elf.

We are not amused!

Fortunately it wasn’t actually as good for my class as the plate armor I had so it was back to being protected were it counts.

Yes I like my intestines on the insides thanks.

The other thing I have been doing on my journey is snapshotting some great vistas – the game has done its scenery really well so far. I especially like the mountains and high alpine forests

Level 17 now and looking forward to twenty when I can put some armor on my mount. The levels are still coming rapidly with the experience boost and patron bonus.

    Lovely pictures! And you will have tons of fun building and sailing a boat. The water is amazing in this game. U can also search for treasures and achievements under water:):)
    Have fun!

      I’m looking forward to seeing all that stuff – it feels like so much of the sandbox side of the game is hidden when you first start. I mean I get a basic plot of land but the ability to own a house/boat/etc is unseeable as a newbie. The crafting seems similar – more for advanced characters than new players which I think is a major flaw.
