I finally got all the deeds from slaying insects at the Midgewater Marsh. I’ve also done enough quests to earn the final Bree-Land Adventurer deed. So, with those things accomplished, I moved out of the marshes and into the Old Forest.
I like the Old Forest. It’s pretty dangerous. The place got killer trees, roots that can kill you, and some creepy-crawlies. Then, there’s the music. It’s loud and suggests that you are in danger. Fortunately, I was level 19, four levels higher than the mob in the area. So, I wasn’t in any trouble at all.
In addition, I also had two bodyguards with me.
The high level players came out of nowhere and just started tagging along with me, killing everything I hit, cheering me on, without saying anything. I know they were just being nice, helping out a lowbie like me. But I was actually annoyed. So, I just left my toon standing for a while and started drafting this very post. To give them credit, both players actually stayed for a bit before giving up on me. I’ll probably seek their guilds out when I get to the big leagues.
Also, I dinged 20!
I got to level 20 without dying once. That’s an accomplishment right there. Of course, after I dinged, a two trees and some roots ganged up on me. So, I’m going to get my revenge, kill 60 of them trees and get my deed too.
