Here's a Lollipop!
So yes, it looks like Mojeaux (pronounced "Mojo") has become my "Main". I don't know if it was a conscious decision or rather just the way things worked out so far, but in any case, Mojeaux is now 28 and poor Mori is still languishing at 24. Last time we talked Mojeaux was 24 and working hard to hit 25 so he could finally get into the Abyss. Mission accomplished!

The journey to 25 didn't seem all that long and I was fortunate enough to get into quite a few good PUG's that certainly made the time go by quickly. Once at 25, I was also fortunate enough to find groups in need of my bow in, of all places, the Nochsana Training Camp.
It's probably THE best place to score some really good XP once you hit 25. From my understanding, it's a great place to grind XP all the way until you hit 29. Besides the great XP (20K+ per mob), it's also probably the most fun I've had in game so far ~ well, PVE anyway. The most fun of course is Elyos hunting :-)
Ice Claw is also a very good place to farm for XP once you get the quests at 27. The XP is on par with that you get from NTC and unlike NTC, which has a 17 hour cool down timer, there is no cool down timer so you can do it as many times as you like. Getting there was a lot more challenging than defeating the boss. He was ridiculously easy once we got the adds out of the way.

By the time I was done Sunday evening, I found myself at 28. I
also found myself a member of a small, casual~friendly guild that looks like I will fit into quite nicely. I happened upon these folks on my first trip to the NTC and was offered membership in their guild, after our successful run. All in all I had a great time this past week and continue to love this game. Hopefully there will be more play time in the upcoming holiday week as I've set my sights squarely on hitting level 30. If I don't post again by then, Happy Turkey Day all!
