It’s been a while since I’ve written any trial and error posts but since I’ve been playing around with some of the items in my bag recently, I’ve come across some interesting things.
Did you know that casting levitate with Falling Flame causes you to keel over like you have an acute case of appendicitis? Better than dying when you hit the ground (short of using a goblin glider or one from the isle vendor). I usually land in the water so I wasn’t aware of any falling damage that was enough to kill you so this time I levitated to test the effect.
After landing in the ocean, I flew up to one of the peaks overlooking Firewalker Ruins and used all four weather stones while waiting for that yaungol to spawn.
As you can see, each one adds to the others until you get to the sunset stone. I couldn’t see any change for the last one but I didn’t mind since you generally see a sunset anyway.
It’s still a great way to break the monotony of an isle frozen in time.
If you need to get somewhere fast on the Timeless lsle, I can think of two viable and fun options – provided you have the necessary items. One requires the Falling Flame drop from Cinderfall although it’s a little unreliable like a piece of gnomish engineering. You may just find yourself shooting backwards rather than forwards as I found out quite recently.
I was curious to see how close I could get to Jakur’s spawn spot so when I was ready to leave my spineclaw farming spot, I shot off in what I thought was a good starting point.
Earlier today I was ecstatic to see the Ash-Covered Horn drop from the High Priest of Ordos. It even popped up as group loot which isn’t always the case but summons a very, very fast mushan. Technically it’s not a mount but can be used indefinitely as long as you have it in your bag unlike the Tuft of Yak Fur dropped by the Ironfur Steelhorn.
The horn gives you a Furious Ashhide Mushan buff allowing you to travel at 275% movement speed for 20secs. With only a 1min CD and no charges, you can have quite a bit of fun with it although you can only use it on the Timeless Isle. At least you can steer and unclick the buff to stop but why would you want to?
If you look closely, you’ll notice her hands in a defensive position as she protects her head from impending damage (or saddle). Nothing a turtle helmet can’t fix though, provided you don’t need to see where you’re going.
Here’s where I am right now:
It’s just a matter of time, luck and lots of Scuttler’s Shells. Shame they only stack 10 at a time.
When I logged on this afternoon, Cool asked if I had any wrapping paper. I told him I didn’t but knew where you could buy some so he asked me to pick some up before I headed out to meet him.
“You’re not going to get me to buy my own wrapping paper, give it to you, just so you can give it back to me as a present are you?” His response “I have to get you to work for it.”
I suspected I knew what it was and was right! I wasn’t having any luck with the Gulp Droplet since Bufo dies so damn fast making this a great gift.
A few days earlier I looted the Blackflame Daggers from one of the Champions of the Black Flame. It’s a nice item which replaces whatever you’re using with these two daggers.
My latest toy is Falling Flame, the notable drop from Cinderfall. I heard people talking about how fun this item was so I was looking forward to seeing it for myself. As soon as I finished my daily, I headed to the edge of Ordon Sanctuary to try it. I wasn’t sure what to expect…
Next time I’ll send a postcard.
