Well, a lot has happened in the last four days. It would probably take me a few hours to write everything down, edit screenshots, and format it all; so I will just be giving ya'll a summary.
First, I finally made it back to Talking Island (pref 2011). Everything was black and white, for the effect of going back in time or probably going back to an old memory. I don't think it was actual time travel, psst, here is a secret of mine, I don't read quest text. So, don't tell anyone okay... or else.
Long story short, I switched classes. I am now playing a Kamael Yul Trickster. Absolutely love the switch. I can actually PVP a bit. There is a lot of potential in this class. I came across the suspicious group of "players" when I was off exploring other areas that I never go.
And another group of "players".
Took me two days or about 16 hours of play time to hit 85. Did I mention I love the class change?
I PKed so many people on my way to 85. I even went full red just for the hell of it. I can't wait to this hot piece of meat at 105, wrecking people left and right.
