My first time in Crystal Cove. What in the world is going on? :)
I went there last night with my 9 (now 10) monk. What exactly am I trying to accomplish here? I read the wiki, and spoke to some AI folks, but I'm still confused.
As best I can tell, everyone is building up treasure maps and stuff to go on the quest itself. Once enough are amassed, the game announces that we can go to Crystal Cove. I went there one time and had very little idea what was going on and what I was supposed to do, other than protect Kobold workers.
Also, how do I know the strength of a pirate enemy on the world map before I attack it? I was doing fine fighting some guys who were in the CR 6-10 range, and then suddenly found myself fighting a CR 22! I got killed pretty quickly. Why can't we ascertain their strength beforehand?
So what should my monk be trying to get from this place, and how do I do it? What about my 21 Artificer?
Thanks for your help.
at your level, avoid minotaurs and Half orcs
Minotaurs tend to be CR 16 and up. Half Orcs are 22 and up, the ones I have seen.
You want to look for elves and humans at your level. Maybe some hobgoblins.
What I have done when on a low level, I have written into general chat and trade chat that I am XYZ level and I am in instance 123 trying to get a compass and not die. It does reduce the amount of high levels, but some players just think it is funny that they will come around on purpose and only give you high levels.
Me personally, if someone types that in general and trade chat I would not go to that instance.
