I think my description of my Rift time this week could be most easily summed up in this picture.
I fished a lot.
Merric and I also got a chance to play together for a bit which was fun. It is a shame it doesn’t get to happen as often as we like lately. He is level 44 (I think) right now so I mentored down to his level and then we both headed out to Shimmersand to do the quests there together.
People were not joking when they told me the experience slows down after 50. It feels crazy slow. I think the lack of noticeable progress there is what drove me to a fishing marathon. I’m also working on my survivor skill crafting so it’s totally useful. It’s just a different type of progression where I could see the progression happening.
Merric and I are hoping to catch some time this weekend to play together some more. I’m excited to go try the Mayhem in Mathosia event that just started.
