Cyrano Dai is my primary in Free Realms.
As I described yesterday, I have been diversifying my jobs. Today I want to talk about quests.
My typical habit is to enter a village or town, and simply walk around picking up all the quests that I can. Often they will overlap, particularly on combat quests, so then I can go into, say, Vale of the Ancients, and resolve 3-4 quests at one time.
One of my favorite quest series so far was Chapter 1, which results in being made an honorary Royal Guard, and getting a decent looking tabard to wear. As an adventurer, I now wear this tabard all the time, because who am I to gainsay the Queen's desires. I would have loved to be able to go back and chat with Darkthorne and gain her approval as well, since it was she who had the foresight to anticipate the danger to the realm and took the steps to ensure its continuance.
Mining and searching for relics has recently become an obsession of mine. I can't walk by a "rich vein" without stopping to chip at it (thar's Gold in 'dem hills!). Ramirez in Blackspore shares a common interest in relics, and I always find that dropping by and digging for relics is profitable.
I particularly love the little quest where you get the two "old people" together by jumping down a well. My that was a surprise. I tried to jump down the windmill shaft near the farm south of Snowhill, but alas was unsucessful.
Have you done any person to person races? Getting a couple folks together who all have the same speed and racing from Darkthorne's throne room to the Abandoned Dojo (no teleporting!) is great fun.
I'm the guild leader of Harvesters, and though our membership hasn't taken off yet (in fact, we seem to be swamped in ninja guilds), I look forward to slowly increasing the membership over time as I find kindred spirits.
Until such time,
