When I first started playing DDO at Halloween of last year, I have been continually amazed at the gameplay and the world. And when I first arrived in the harbor I was greeted by the sight of the beacon, extending out a bowl of light, to show travelers that they have not lost their way; that home is this way. And as I progressed through the game I continually wondered if it would be possible to reach the heights and stand atop the beacon, to see the world from the vantage of the birds.
I have finally achieved that goal.
Along similar lines of nigh non-attainability is the airship in the Marketplace that brings the veteran characters into the game. Though, with this one, powerful magics are required to reach this point.
