RoM: The Rush to Endgame

Filed under: Runes of Magic — Cranky Sysadmin @ 2:00 pm

Oh wow, I haven’t posted here in a while. I guess I should get crackin’ then. I’ve managed to level my Mage/Priest in Runes of Magic to level’s 55/45. I’m working on getting the mage side to 60, then I’ll do the final push to 50+ for the priest side. I’m already looking for good healing gear as I really prefer to heal in instances.

Back in Runes of Magic

There are still scammers, but not like Jita local.

Leveling in Runes of Magic

Filed under: Runes of Magic — Cranky Sysadmin @ 1:47 pm

After several weeks of playing RoM, my mage/priest is at levels 40/33. My old strategy was to keep the two class levels even, but I found that I was running out of quests. Besides, while leveling the priest side is fun, it’s noticeably slower then leveling the mage side.

Attribute Runes

Filed under: Runes of Magic — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:14 am

In WoW, one of the ways to permanently enhance your gear is through the use of gems. To “gem” your equipment, you need to have a gem of a particular color, and a matching or compatible socket. The equivelent process in Runes of Magic involves using runes and gear with rune sockets.
