Damnit, Drezel. (pt. 1)

Today I did a quest titled, Preist in Peril. You begin by speaking to the king of Varrock, King Roald. Apparently his friend, a monk named Drezel has gone missing and needs the help of a good Samaritan to find out hat happened! Well, well, well, I just so happen to know a good Samaritan who just so happens to be looking for a quest.

This is what my armor looks like, I'm supposed to me doing ok against this ghoul, right?

So, off I went to the east. It took me ages to find this temple when Drezel was supposed to be and when I finally did, the door was locked. GREAT. I examined the door a few times but to no avail. I tried to speak with this mysterious monk lingering outside but he ignored me. I checked out this mausoleum, opened the trapdoor and went underground. There was a level 50 dog there named Cerberus; I was surprised he didn’t attack me right away since monsters that high of level are usually placed there to attack people. Passing the dog, I went through a gate leading to a large room with a well inside surrounded by statues. I examined the statues and the well but nothing interesting happened. In the far corner there was another door leading to a library and what looked like a cave mouth dripping “holy water.” I tried to pass through it but I received a notice that “the guardian had not cleared me to pass.” By guardian I think they meant the level 63 ghoul wandering about the same room. Awesome, I have to fight this thing?! Lucky I brought all this food with me.

I needed to restock my health about three times but I eventually killed it and went to pass through when I received yet another warning. This was a warning you would get when you pass into the wilderness of the deep desert and it seemed fishy that a novice quest would send you into somewhere that dangerous. So, I returned to king Roald to double check what exactly it was I was supposed to be doing with that-there temple.

Of course he was of no help, he repeated what he had told me before but with no further aid. Alright, it’s time to outsource.

Back at the temple there was another player, obviously doing the same quest as me since he kept on stopping that that darned temple door that was locked from the inside. I asked him what to do and he said I had to kill the dog. What?! Since when was I told to kill a dog?! That dog wasn’t trying to kill me… I was just so confused. Then I right-clicked on the door this time instead of left-clicking to pull down the options list and that’s when I saw the option to “knock.”

Well, now why didn’t I think of that? Lo and behold when I knocked someone on the other side spoke to me, their script suggested they weren’t who they were saying they were (They claimed they were Drezel but in that horribly sketchy kind of way). Alas, they told me to kill Cerberus, so I had to swallow my morals and kill that poor dog.

At least they were considerate, right?

Right in the middle of my battle my game froze and crashed so I had to switch over to a less populated world. The Canada server only had about 200-something people in it so that would work.

Eventually, I killed the dog. Poor thing. I talked to the people at the temple and they sent me back to the king who was none-too pleased to hear I had killed Cerberus. Apparently his kingdom was now going to be invaded by crazies. COOL GUYS. I returned to the temple to try and fix my mess and this time I could just walk on in since I guess the monks in there now considered me a total bro for killing that dog. I found Drezel locked in a chamber on the third floor right next to a vampyre coffin. I had to find a key by killing one of the monks downstairs and then I had to exchange it with one of the keys held by those statues down in the mausoleum. Easy enough. Soon I had the key for Drezel and he was free…

Or was he?

The Terms and Conditions

As you can imagine, this is a blog about Runescape. This is a blog for newbies, those seeking a nostalgia rush, or those interested in simply mocking the nerd that decided to create a blog about video game adventures.

This is Potam!

This is Potam!

I first heard about Runescape in a chatroom through a certain bit of software I use to “share” music. I never really looked into it until my junior year of high school when a couple of my guy friends were all like “have you heard of Runescape?” Yadda-yadda-yadda, we ended up having a few gaming sessions that would extend into the wee hours of the morning. (This was also enhanced by our use of Skype at the same time. For those interested in group gaming I highly suggest the Skype ‘n’ ‘Scape method as your preferred method of communication.)  Runescape is the reason I game so much even now. It’s great for those who haven’t mastered the Call of Duty controls. If you’re anything like me, those games are still terrifying. If you’re not like me, then Runescape can still benefit you in the way any mindless task would. Seriously, it’s like if Skyrim and Minecraft had a baby it would be Runescape.

That was five years ago. Runescape has evolved immensely with updates adding tutorial extras, better graphics, and longer/cheesier cut scenes. Starting March 2013, there is a site based on the layout from 2007 so if you’d like to play a more “vintage” game then sign up here. It’s still free, for the time being and it’s still just as “delightfully outdated” as my friend, Matt, would say.

This is Potam waving!

This blog, however, is going to be played on the more modernized edition (which is also free). I created a character: Potam (I got the name from the little CAPTCHA when I signed in).  Everyday I will post something about the adventures Potam had, the quests she went on, the levels she gained, the people she met, the works. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, snide remarks, etc. feel free to express them. If you’d like Potam to try a quest or if you have any pointers that might make things move along faster please share! Personally, I know the shortcuts to get through these quests a little faster (i.e. the Grand Exchange). For those who don’t know what the Grand Exchange is, I’ll explain in a later post when Potam journeys there. However, I plan on working through the game the way any beginning who doesn’t know the cheats might do. (Sidenote: there are no cheats in Runescape. Do NOT download anything that even suggests a Runescape cheat. It’s fake. Stay away, far away.) Also, if I use any Runescape “lingo” I’ll try to define it for you but if you have any questions, please ask.

Fair warning, I am a member and will be doing things in the p2p (pay-to-play) and in the f2p (free-to-play) boundaries; I’ll be sure to mention where I am and when I cross the border from one to the other.

All you need is a username, a password and (if you don’t feel like paying for a membership) you get 10,000 hours of free play time.

Hopefully I’ll see you out there. Have fun! Take chances! Pwn n00bs (take advantage of new players)! Good luck.
