Monday the 3rd L30 Retodon8 progressed with his quest some more and will travel to the White Cliffs Beach next. 248k zm. 104 cards. L33 Denroot explored the L30 Peltoid Valley again. Lately every time I want to use one more turn before I let her go back to base, and start doubting because I feel there will be a magic TMP, there happens to be one. ANNOYING! And it makes no sense, stupid mind reading game. >:( Got her APs to 200 and left with 344k zm. 116 cards.
Tuesday the 4th L30 Retodon8 finished his quest early, earning 200 APs. He is now exploring the Peltoid Valley again, like Denroot, but at L27. He played until he was below 200 APs, and now has 311k zm, 109 cards. L33 Denroot explored L30 Peltoid Valley. 362k zm, 117 cards.
Wednesday the 5th L30 Retodon8 explored L27 Peltoid Valley and levelled up to L31. 337k zm, 110 cards. L33 Denroot explored L30 Peltoid Valley and levelled up to L34. 383k zm, 119 cards.
Thursday the 6th L31 Retodon8 explored L28 Peltoid Valley. L28 seems to be mostly doable. 350k zm, 112 cards. L34 Denroot explored L31 Peltoid Valley. Also mostly doable. 393k zm, 120 cards.
Sunday the 9th. Didn't play for a few days again. The 200 APs I earned from the quest are in fact different. I had about 260 APs left for both characters, but only around 270 the next day. L31 Retodon8 explored L28 Peltoid Valley. He bought an Antharian Arquebus with +200 AR for 432580zm discounted (normally 503000zm). L34 Denroot explored L31 Peltoid Valley. She bought some Kovalli Scale Armor with +260 DR for 405000zm (normally 450000zm) and gave it to Retodon8 through a clan donation. Hardly the upgrades I originally intended to have by now, but at least a small improvement.
Retodon8 then explored some more at L31 and spent the money he earned learning some skills from the Warrior in Frostham (complete) and the Duelist in Antharia. He also levelled up to L32 and used up pretty much all of his 200+ APs. 15k zm, 119 cards. Denroot found a new sub-location, the Sinister Caves of Donald, and figured she'd explore there. One encounter with a L35 Renegade Boot Patrol costing her 7 health points reminded her that sub-locations are a waste of effort. She was also annoyingly unlucky encountering magic TMPs, so didn't earn nearly as much as she could/should have using her 200+ APs. She also learned some skills from the Warrior and Duelist. 82k zm, 129 cards.
When I was about done for the day, I noticed Sidekicks don't cost an obscene amount of money to buy like I'd always assumed, but are actually free! Great, another thing I've went without for way too long. These things in this game are really uncool! >:( Anyway, both Retodon8 and Denroot got an Accountant and used a bunch of cards to make them perform optimally.
