Vacation and Finally 200

Hello, everyone! 

Due to the busy times that is our vacation, Hades and I have only just gotten to 200. Though not exactly the highest on server, (I hear there are people nearing 400, congratulations!) I am very proud to have gotten that far with the little time I have played.

What I love about the new server is all the people! Though I have met some rude people, the vast majority has been extremely friendly and I'm happy to be making new friends. I love seeing full parties and people working together.

Which reminds me, if you ever see one of us grinding, don't be afraid to ask for PT. I'm happy to give it and I will really only deny you if you've been a major jerk quite a few times to me. Besides that, I love partying with people and making new friends!

So I don't have Redstone related pictures, but how about pictures from my vacation? Extra points if you can guess where these are!

Hope you enjoy those pictures! Until next time, my wonderful blog readers, I hope you are having a fantastic time both in game and in real life, and good luck and happy hunting!

Helpful Links!

Hello everyone! 

Though our time has been very limited, Hades and I have gotten to 150! I will add screenshots later, as once more I'm updating from my phone.

But I did want to make a post to help some people who had been asking where I get my information. I will add these links to the sidebar (and get rid of some outdated ones) but for now, here these are!

  • The best (and actually updated) T-set guide I have found so far. It has Maid but it seems that Dark Sorceress doesn't have T-set yet,  at least according to that chart.
  • Of course, Redstone Hunter. On there, you can find item lists, secret dungeon guides, and other helpful information. 
  • Stoneage Sushi. Very similar to Redstone Hunter, though my favorite thing on it is the comprehensive maps that tell you exactly what and where mobs spawn.  
  • An amazing skill simulator. I use this because I'm super impatient and I want to know exactly how many skill points and/or levels until I max out all the skills I want.
  • Guild Dungeon guides. Helpful because I know not everyone knows how to run them.
I hope at least one person finds some useful information through this post.

Basically, I just hunt around and read as much as I can. I love learning new things and the fun thing about Redstone is you can always learn something new. 

Redstone, especially to new people, can be a little overwhelming and a lot to take in but as long as people choose to help and to work to better the community, we can all grow stronger.

Until next time, good luck and happy hunting!

Guardians is Open for Business!

Hello everyone!

Jigg (or should I say, Hades) and I have been hard at work and we have finally done something we have been wanting for a long time. We have our own guild!

It's still very much in its infancy but let me know if you would like to join. We are recruiting any active, friendly people, new or old, who love the game. Right now we only have four members but hopefully we will grow. Just let me know in game or on here if you would like to join us!

Let's Begin

Hello, everyone!

Excuse the lack of pictures and screenshots as I am updating the blog on my cell phone! While on vacation Jigg and I were able to get our hands on a computer and try out the shiny new server. Granted it took a lot of time, a bit of computer knowledge, and a godly amount of patience to get it to run correctly but we eventually were able to get into the game. 

We decided to have me create my character first since I will be doing most of the damage while Jigg will be support on his priest. I, of course,  am running a power archer again and with about three hours, I got to level 39 all by my lonesome. As for my name, you'll just have to keep reading to find out! 

I did experience the odd party bug (and my hopes are that it is a bug and not intentional) where partying with another person cuts your experience by nearly 60%. Now I'm always happy to party, even with severe cuts but I know this just mostly discourages people from partying in the first place. 

I believe,  like many MMORPG's, there should be a system that encourages party, such as a slight increase in experience or a bonus to drop chance. This encourages people to work together for the betterment of everyone and as a whole,  makes the entire server stronger. 

Regardless, I did get to enjoy watching the new class items drop that were completely unintelligible but still fun to pick up and get an idea of what they are going to be, at least at low level. I may try my hand at Maid/Dark Sorceress but my heart will always belong to my archer. 

The server is not perfect but I am extremely happy to be playing again. This game is, and probably will be for a long time, my favorite online game and a game I will always come back to. 

Now for the reveal of my archer's name! Like I said before, Jigg and I will be dropping our previous names. Now we will be known as Persephone and Hades. Hope you enjoy the new names and I promise once I get back to my computer,  I will give this blog a major makeover. Until then, I hope you are alright with the old blog. 

Until next time, I will wish you good health and happy hunting!
