Clear Skies 2 is wall-to-wall awesome. I watched it last night after busting my behind to get our place fixed up for the visitors (Mrs. Ardwulf’s out-of-town relatives) who’ll be staying with us from tomorrow through the weekend. It’s even more ambitious than the first installment and has the same great dialogue and action, and even a big space battle. I can’t wait to see episode 3.
In other business, I played some on Hrishnak, mostly doing some running-around quests and completing the chains that lead to the Wailing Caverns quests. In the process I hit level 19. After playing quite a bit on higher-level characters, I’m annoyed by not haviong either a mount of some kind of speed buff, but that changes with Aspect of the Cheetah at level 20.
I’ve also switched from gun to bow, because I like the aesthetic better for an Orc, and I’m doing the Engineer Hunter thing Alliance-side. I’m going to switch to Skinning/Leatherworking as well, which will change my plans for a couple of other characters, which is okay – none of them have gotten very far.
I probably won’t get much solid play in tonight, although I’d like to get my new Warlock out of the Valley of Trials and into Razor Hill, just so I can efficiently mail stuff between every character – there’s a lot of herbs and gems cluttering up Hrishnak’s bags and bank right now, plus some ore.
