Langdale and the ‘Hates Envy’ connection

So I decided amongst my many other toons, to create another!  This time however, I thought I would do it a little differently.  For one, I have never played a rat.  I have played an Assassin though.  Well Langdale is an Assassin. Even though I have already dragged one up to 70th, I decided to start another for one reason…..I wanted a Ratonga Ranger.  So I had no choice.  What I did have a choice about of course was the starting city.  I decided on Neriak simply because I have never started a toon there and my wife had been raging about how much fun it was!!

So this, the first of many blogs (hopefully) to come, tracking Langdales beginnings in Hate’s Envy and his adventures beyond.

Hate’s Envy Enclave.

Hate’s Envy is a small enclave near to the entrance of Neriak where I began my adventures.  It is a small but fun place with plenty going on, and more than enough quests to keep me interested.  My first stop was Verex N’Za who helped me start my career.  He sent me off on various tasks in and around Hate’s Envy.  They were short enough to hold my attention, if a little easy.

My next stop was the Mayors office where I picked up a few quests to go in to a nearby cave and also had to bring back the head of Ithari K’Xyrae for Mayor Sselnyl Do’Zyth!  Not a very nice mayor at all!

Ithari K’Xyrae

 The cave that I collected K’Xyrae’s head from is supposed to spawn a rare ground item.  A flower that gives you a quest for a fairly decent piece of chain armour shoulders.  I spent over an hour wandering there (and it is pitifully small) and found nothing.  So I decided to move on.

My adventures took me out of Hate’s Envy and to the next step out in Darklight Woods, the T’Vatar Post.  Here I picked up a lot of extra quests and got myself some good armour pieces including a decent chest piece for freeing souls in to the Wellspring of Nightmares.

Langdale is now level 9.  I must admit I have really enjoyed Darklight Woods so far.  The scope and quests have been a lot of fun and I am looking forward to getting back in there.

Starting another alt, got me to thinking about something Stargrace said on her website  She said it annoyed her (albeit she said it was a little thing) and wished that ‘people’ (I think this means guildies) would dedicate a little more time to “mains” instead of alts.  I agree if the toon is powerlevelled, but if like I have done with my many alts and try to do quests or content never experienced with my other alts (granted some quests you need to do with all), then I have found the experience of playing alts most satisfying, rewarding and sometimes nostalgic. I don’t know if it really matters if you play an alt or a main…as long as you are having fun. 

 I am undecided when to attempt the betrayal with Langdale to become a Ranger as he is meant to be.  I think at the moment as I am enjoying the content in Darklight Woods so much, I will wait…and just try not to spend anything on updating my skills!

Yis Yis! Langdale …out!
