And I mean that in more ways than one! Well, two anyway. My adventures in Uncharted Waters Online continue. And I did finish one school and I am ready for finishing (that is, Advanced) school now, in all three areas.
Adventurer school was great, and I continue to be happy with my main selection. I did jump jobs a couple of times with the permits earned in school, but just so I could pick up some basic Merchant and Battle skills. And since I haven’t finished school yet, I am reserving final judgment. But for now, I was happy to have passed my tests with flying colors!
The Battle skills I hadn’t intended to grab, but after getting wiped by the AI in the Intermediate Battle school…twice…I decided to pick up a few basics. Even then it wasn’t an easy win. It took way more Munitions and Lumber than I thought, and even then I barely pulled it off.
Next up is a trip to Pisa. The graduation exercise gives you enough money to use a Liner to travel there if you like. Liner’s are like the Flight Point paths in WoW – only with a ship instead of a griffin, and it will take 15 minutes instead of a minute and a half. And its expensive. So I’d rather save the money and make the journey myself. (Hello…Adventurer character. Duh.)
First though, I have to see a man in Hamburg named Martin Luther about a letter to a Mr. Erasmus.
Which is funny, because I’m actually Lutheran. Maybe I’ll get to hoist a drink or three with ol’ Marty. Its a nice touch, having a game that is at least nominally tied into real history.
