A Friendly Post from Bailey Skystaff

Hi there all you wonderful wizards! Bailey Skystaff here, and I've taken over Friendly's blog (with his permission) to post a few things I've got on my mind.

First up--What I’ve been doin!

Well, I’ve been chillin' in Chillestia of course :-)

I've been hangin' out on the floating land, which is my FAVORITE place so far!! I also picked up my GM Artisan quest when I got there, which led to a lot of this:

Molly was helping me out--check out random guys comment:

I thought that was hilarious!!

Second, Why was I wasting my time gathering reagents while Celestia was out?

Well, yea I get side tracked easily. XD But, it gave me a good break from questing. And the end result of all that gathering and crafting is this badge below my name.

And I guess I liked all that pain staking farming so much that I decided to craft up some uber lvl 55 gear. Check this out!

I had to stitch that hat. It was just not workin' for me :P I guess I’ll wear the others for a little while. I’m sure I will need to replace them with some 58 gear eventually, but its pretty rockin for now!

Speaking of crafting my gear, it was a beast to craft!!

All three pieces were difficult, mostly because of the 14 phoenix cards I needed to craft for the recipes (thanks to Destiny for helping me through it!).

You know, it got me to thinking again, WHY do these clothes look like clothes that any old wizard can buy or get from a lame drop????????? There's a lot of work that goes into crafting these items and into getting to the appropriate level to craft them! I know the stats are cool, but shouldn’t these clothes just look a little more special than something anyone can get? Maybe it’s just me, but I would love it if this crafted gear would look a little more unique as well.

Now on to housing items and my mini-rant (if you didn't get enough of the last mini-rant)!

It all started here:

I love this tower it is SOOO cool--glitchy cool--the kind of glitchy we all love!!!!!
As I was farming for a nifty Dragon Skull housing item that my friend Seth Hunter clued me into . . . (Do I hear a Housing Item of the Day! look at this thing!)

. . . we were looking around and Destiny spotted this awesome desk that sadly doesn’t, or at least I think it doesn't, seem to be something we can get for our houses. (Do I hear a Double Housing Item of the Day!?)

But do ya see the wand rack right next to that?!?!?! Yes, its the same wand rack you see at every shop in the spiral pretty much. Well, I’m sure I’m not the first to think of this, but it sparked an idea in my head, mostly because of the extensive wand collection my husband has stashed in his bank. I thought wouldn’t it be awesome if we could display our wands in our houses?! (Do I hear a Triple Housing Item of the Day?!) Hopefully someday! And why not? Mannequins let us display our clothing, pets can hang out with you in your houses now--why not wands???? :-) I like it!!!!

You know we have some cool looking and unique wands on our accounts. Some we got from codes in FOG but don’t really use because they don’t have the power we need now. So, I think it would be fun to be able to decorate with them!! What do you think?

Well that’s it from me. (Are you proud of yourself for making it through that whole thing?)

Next up for me is Stormriven, and I’m sure you’ll hear from me again once I am Legendary! WOO!

Happy Dueling!

Congrats Bailey!

Yeah, I've been wondering about the crafted gear and how they aren't visually unique; something's gotta give for the efforts to scrounge up all those rare reagents AND level in Crafting rank, right?

Henrietta said...

being able to display wands would be completely awesome! They are fun to collect but kind of just sit there collecting dust, it would be fun to show them off :)

Panglou said...

Your right on all of those things, I mean, who wants to spend 15 hours plus making a boring-looking piece of crafting gear? And wand displays, well, you can put them on your Mannequin, but eh, I would like a rack to show them off better lol.

I just started crafting, mostly because the Celestia gear looked like it might be worth a try. I'm up to the Dragonspyre crafting quests now and am starting to wonder if crafting gear is going to be worthwhile or not. Seeing the stats on your gear is certainly encouraging.

I was wondering if you can clarify what boss in DS drops the large dragon skull? What area is the boss located in, which building, and what is their name? I'd appreciate your help. Thanks to your family for having this helpful blog-site to speed up the farming process.
