Hi, My name is Caela, and I’m addicted to crafting

I’ve been reading up on the new expansion Chains of Eternity for EQ2.  Sounds fairly interesting.  But what really has caught my eye are the crafting changes.  I may buy the expansion for the tradeskill stuff alone.  Here’s a rundown I found on the EQ2 forums – which says it’s from EQ2Wire, but I can’t find it there.  I’ve added my own take on things from my readings…

Also see EQ2 Trader’s Corner for more info

Tradeskill Specialization – These are your AA’s – for bountiful harvesting, material conservation, etc.
* New point pool doesn’t draw from shared # of AAs
update: by level 18 you have all your TS specializations

Tradeskill Prestige – New shiny abilities!
* Granted at level 90.

Refining and Salvaging
* Harvest Node Tracking
* Gathering Goblin
* like the pack pony but can harvest rares
* Mobile Crafting Stations
* Deconstruct an item into raw materials.
* Refining – refine an existing rare component into a pure rare component — boosts the stats
* Mass Production
*Craft multiple items at a time – omgomgomgomgomg

* Change stats, add procs

* New crafted tier of level 90 white adornments
* Tinkered Adornment Removers
* Items in Chains of Eternity drop with a yellow or red adornment already applied

So, this all looks really cool.  I think I’ll get the expansion just for the crafting goodness.  It might get me actually playing again.  Though, I’m not playing much of anything right now except “keep my sanity” – which I seem to be losing.  Gone from the house for 12 hours a day, and trying to sleep 5 or 6 hours a day, and having a family (they insist on not only talking to me when I’m at home, but wanting to eat food that I have to cook as well)  and volunteer commitments, doesn’t leave much time for “playing” much of anything.  I managed to log into EQ2 on Tuesday.  I did one quest for Nights of the Dead and was able to finish my Festive Spirit Achievement.  That got me the title “The Festive Spirit” and a cool bauble that gives off particle effects from all the holidays – which also means I can have gears spewing off my hands and feet! What gnome doesn’t love that!

Guild Wars 2 is having their own Halloween event.  And yes, it bugs me they call it Halloween.  I logged in to GW2 right after EQ2, as hubby was doing the GW2 Halloween stuff.  I didn’t get very far.  Everything was very confusing and I just didn’t know what to do.  Maybe I’ll spend some time this weekend to figure out just what the heck is going on.  I found a wiki page that might be of some help.

But other than Monday and Tuesday, I’ve had no time for anything.  Wednesday was spent at a board meeting, and Thursday was spent at the high school football game.  Thursday Night Lights are soooo wrong.  It was also very cold.  Big cold front blew in – dropping the temps from the 80’s to the 50’s.  Which having to wear shorts to football games is also wrong.  But I did not have all my winter gear ready – so I was a bit chilly.

This weekend is a “light weekend”  – we are off for Friday – and I’m taking a half day vacation, and Saturday we only have a band contest at 2pm, and Sunday we have two kickball games in the afternoon.  Not real sure what I’m going to do with all that time.  Oh yeah, clean the house and do yard work.  We have company coming next weekend.  But I’m hoping to get some play time in with both games.  It’s double XP weekend in EQ2 – maybe I can get some crafting done, and some levels on my Inquisitor.   I’m not going to worry about AA’s since the expansion will come with 280 AA’s for two characters.  That’s kinda cool.  So just trying to get to lvl 90.  And maybe get Caely’s crafting to 90.  That would be awesome with the new crafting goodies.
