I was within 60 million XP of finally getting to 280 base magic D when Sunday night turned into a bit of a blur -- ended up going out in the afternoon and staying out a touch later than I'd wanted. I'd gotten so used to 60 million being less than 2 hours of leveling, that it never set in that Sunday afternoon's Hopeslayer quest was my last AC:DM time.
Fast forward to tonight.
Withered Lugian Beach? Deserted. As in, not a single white dot anywhere.
Withered Lugian Dungeon? Ditto.
So I went into the dungeon, and stayed at the top . . . OMG this is SLOW! Dammit, where's all those XP wh0res I badmouth now that I need them?!
Ack. This is going to take a while.
