I’m almost level 30, and I still haven’t died yet. The longer I go, the more stressed out I get about it. I’m starting to feel like I should just throw myself off a cliff and get it over with.
I came damn close to dying while I was working on the Plains of Ashford Event Completer daily. I was mobbed by harpies who knocked me down to only 12 hit points before I was able to take cover.
Shout out to Otis for distracting them while I hid behind a rock.
A few seconds later, the event failed, the harpies flew away, and I breathed a sigh of relief.
I crept out from my hiding space and watched as a charr and a human NPC bickered over who should go retake their stolen supplies from the harpies.
Plains of Ashford is a contentious place with a long and difficult history. Let’s just say the cease-fire between humans and charr feels precarious at times.
Eventually the human (Explorer Erin) lost the argument and begrudgingly walked away to start a collection event. Guess what? More frickin harpies.
Personally I think if the harpies stole all your supplies, that’s on you. Let the harpies keep them, and do a better job protecting them next time.
But what do I know. I’m also the jerk who ran away instead of helping protect the supplies in the first place. So here I am, getting mobbed by harpies again.
Being able to easily earn 2 gold per day changes the early game experience far more than I anticipated. I remember having to scrimp and save and work my way up to larger bags. But here I am, not even level 30, dropping gold to buy three 18-slot bags. It’s a good feeling! Not everything has to be difficult.
