After a great first day, I was looking forward to playing again. While I did spend some time with my hunter, I did not get a chance to play my Warden any further or create a Rune-Keeper.
With my hunter I did finish the Dwarven Expedition quest line, which is gone once you unlock Moria, and several more chapters of the Book 1 quest. My initial encounter with the Watcher was fun, and the session play flashback to the fall of Khazad-dûm was excellent. I also received my first legendary item. When you get your first weapon, in my case a bow, you have to get it identified. For me, this involved a trip to Thorin’s Hall. I’m hoping that other classes don’t have to make that same trip, since it is about as far away from the Walls of Moria as you can get.
In Thorin’s Hall, I identified and equiped my bow and then slotted some settings, gems, and runes to add some different bonuses to it. Slotting these items into the weapon is semi-permanent since you can’t get them back out without having the weapon reforged, although you can slot someting new but you’ll lose whatever is currently in that slot.
After your legendary weapon is ready, then next step is to get it to level 10 by fighting anything that will give you experience. I mapped back to Echad Dûnann and picked up several quests to get started on levelling my bow. Like with a new character, the first few levels with a new item come pretty quickly, then the experience curve gets a little steeper.
