What we’ve done in game:

Ding 56!

Finished questing in KingswardStory quest: Defeat Salvarola is a solo player instance, completed it at level 55, in full chloro, fighting level 60 elite boss. However I wasn’t able to pick up the next step in the store quest once finished. Had to leave and level then go back to get it. Now questing in Ashora!!!Did some IA to get my last two bars of level 55. Same quests over and over, not impressed.Spent the last week of the carnival doing EVERYTHING. Tried every game, all the new ones in Tempest Bay. (Loved the fashion show! 8 Prize tickets per!) Got several rewards, including Aurora, the Magicians Kit (blows up my head) and the dimension items.


PAX!Ding 57! ALMOST 58!PvP, PvP, and more PvP!Tower of Dawn. Had a super crappy Tactician build, so had to redo that to be successful.Ashora, we are there!

Last weeks Livestream showed the NEW dimension: The Moonshade Pools (Key is now available on Woody Cook in Tempest Bay!)

Elrar also showed us the new Defiance Hellbug companion pet as well as the Raptr Pet!

Planarite Bug- Cap went from 100K down to 60K. It was an error that was fixed next day, and commented on by Elrar and Daglar. Was not intentional and at the time they weren’t sure why it happened.

More chronicles are in the works. You should expect one with 2.3. ~Daglar

response to a forum thread asking for more saga quests and chronicles in SL.

Wardrobe will not be available for weapons. However we have another solution coming down the pipe for 2.3 to customize weapon appearances. ~Daglar
