What we did in game:

Sallennia

  • Um… PAX and the PAX plague…

  • FINALLY finished Queens Gambit!  We now know our failures were ALL CHRIS’ FAULT.

  • Random Experts…Empyrean Core, Storm Breaker Protocol, Exodus of the storm queen

  • Questing in Dendrome

Chris

  • Experts! Ran through Tower of the Shattered and a couple of other dungeons getting a slew of achievements.

  • Daily quests in Dendrome. Still trying to get a lay of the land. I feel a little like Ember Isle, which I also felt continually lost in.

  • New chronicle. Did not go so well… Ooops, someone hit the Hard Mode button.

  • Still no new instance. Hopefully this week.
