Khek the Shadowknight is becoming famous in Norrath! I was recently highlighted on the SOE EQ2 Players article section for my Khek in Kunark blog entry.
Khek, the name that will be on the beaks of all beach-strolling parrots for times to come… If you want to know more about this legendary adventurer, venture over to keenandgraev.com!
Yay for Khek and all that stuff. Now on to the adventure log!
I took Khek over to Butcherblock immediately after finishing up in Timorous Deep. Having done much of Butcherblock twice already on Delbert (Ratonga Brigand) and Gnobby (Gnome Conjuror) the place was fairly fresh in my mind. Something I wasn’t prepared for though was the great additions made to the zone to accomodate the flow of Sarnaks coming in from across the ocean. You see, in Gorowyn there is a gryphon that will take you directly to the dock area in Butcherblock Mountains. Upon arrival you are greeted with about 4 quests and a few Gorowyn writs to kill x mobs. Grabbing them all I headed straight for the docks where I found an additional few new quests from a Sarnak who starts an enormous chain of quests leading you all over BB. Let me tell you now – complete them all and you will be rewarded with an amazing item.
I’ve spent the past 2 or 3 days (I’ve lost track of time) completing quests at a very casual pace. I’m not really in a hurry to burn through content because I really do have a long way to go before I reach a level where I can start grouping more often with guildies and pugs. So at this comfortable pace it has taken me a few days but I have finally completed all the quests at the docks, west outpost, east outpost, and near the Lesser Faydark area. Finishing up the last remaining quests should land me at around 31 where I will make my way either into a dungeon or to Enchanted Lands…. ohh how I loathe Halflings.
Worth mentioning is my trip to Crushbone last night. I was invited to join with some other guild’s group to go on a killing spree and slaughter all the orcs we could muster in an hour’s time. I maed an entire level and completed two quests so overall it was a great trip and confirmed what I already knew: Crushbone is the best instance I’ve been through yet in EQ2. If at all possible I want to avoid Ruins of Varsoon because as a Sarnak I just can’t handle the roof scraping my skull as I run around – ugh.
I expect that my adventures will have a bit more flare once I reach an area I have not been before such as Steamfont. Until then Khek wishes you all a fair weekend!
