It seems obvious to me that they always put double XP on holiday weekends to entice people to play more RoM and ignore their families and RL events, but as Halloween is my favorite holiday, I spent most of this weekend out doing fun, spooky, silly things in RL and not gaining double XP. (My pregnant sister and I went to a Halloween party dressed as Mary & Joseph. Ha ha! And no, I will NOT post pix.)
I still managed to squeeze in some late night gaming on Vixyn though and leveled her from 30/30 to 34/32. Mostly just did regular quests to level, but my friend Furlough and I tried to do BG for kicks. I was a typical headstrong female and raced at the True Count with my crazy eyes on, and therefore got out of Furlough's healing range and died rather spectacularly. Whoops. So out comes Spiral, fireballs blazing, and takes him out in a few hits, thus revenging her little sister's death. Take that, ya big smelly bat!
Of course there was the usual crap over the weekend with everyone getting kicked from their guilds and not being able to enter their houses or get mail or use the AH, blah blah blah. A lot of world chats flying back and forth about how lame Runewaker/Frogster is but I honestly don't expect much more. Sure, it ticks me off when things mess up, but this is a free game after all. It's kinda like buying a computer from the back of some guy's van in the Wal-Mart parking lot, then complaining that it doesn't come with Windows, a DVD drive, USB ports, and is missing the letters K and R on the keyboard.. Can't expect too much from cheap stuff. That's why it's cheap, friends.
