So given the choice of "get the legendary item but skip the side jobs," or "wait another week or so to get your first LI and be able to do the whole instance," I decided to just wait. Although they're much improved from their initial rules, Legendary Items are still at their heart a tiresome grind, so it's not like a couple of extra days will make much difference.
On the other hand, Lachwen did pick up her L45 class quest, which includes fetching stuff from Goblin Town, which I'm organizing a group for on Thursday anyway, so score! A few people have started making smart remarks about the fact I have a character inspired by a Pony ... well, they'll change their tune when the need healing in a hairy instance. ;P
The other big news is that canisrufus_uk was inducted into the Valar Guild last night! Congrats and welcome aboard, dude! I hope you'll like it. :)
But now... sleep!
