When you get a chance check out Avalon. If you're not all the way leveled up then hitch a ride with a friend. If you are leveled up all the way, go visit Ambrose to start the "This little light of mine" quest line. If you're anything like me that starts my brain's broken mp3 player playing the camp fire song on an infinite loop.
Morganthe is stirring up trouble again and picking on poor Gamma. Gamma will send you to Avalon to immediately fight storm gremlins. They're pretty strong health-wise so you'll probably need to go in with several buddies unless you're decked out in crafted ice gear.
Some little known facts about Avalon:
Avalon has 6 major areas and 15 sub areas.
The level cap will be raised up to 80 ( a significant increase)
There are 28 new utility spells that increase or decrease effects of various kinds (I'll explain more very soon)
There are new level 78 pet quests for each school but you need to have done the former pet quests.
Gardening is being expanded up to level 15 with new spells and plants to boot!
Details about spells for various levels:
Level 70 effects spells will allow you to put a convert on all your enemies for 2 pips
Level 72 effects spells deal with stealing or removing blades or placing damage over time spells except balance who gets a game changing spell that can hit you and take 3 pips away. This spell will probably end 1v1 pvp as we know it. Death gets a decent spell which adds a minus-heal on all enemies.
Level 75 spells get really interesting... which I will have to write about more soon! (hang in there)
Level 80 spells are shield breaking blades which could be interesting but I suspect that wizards will generally be dead (in pvp) before they get to apply a decent combination of blades including these shield breakers. I guess I'll be experimenting on myself to determine that for sure.
Avalon sure looks beautiful.
See you there!
