I just played for, like, 4 hours straight. Man...that was awesome. Finally level 12 and I jsut got out of Ascalon, even though I still have like 6 quests I have to finish up. I'm in Yak's Bend now, got Phoenix, which kicks SO much ass...heh.

I love my Ranger/Elementalist again.

Guys have you checked out Ascalon, Lion's Arch, Droknar's Forge and the Tombs after the Christmas Update?

And anyone tried Observer Mode yet? It totally rocks. I mean, you have *got* to see it to believe it.

Ascalon is pretty crazy after the update...I kinda like it.

And what's observer mode and how do you get into it?

Was doing quest this morning and up in the Iron Horse Mines there's some really cool looking scenery.

Observer Mode allows you to watch PvP (tombs, GvG) matches in which top-ranked guilds are involved. The games are shown with a 15-minute delay so that you can't cheat . You can chat with other observers while observing, and discuss strategy. A lot of times, people from the nicer guilds that were actually playing the same game will join up with the observers and provide running commentary about what was going on at the time.

To bring up the list of games available for observation, press B, or use the Menu. Try it -- if you have ever PvP'ed, or are interested in PvP'ing anytime in the future, you are going to love it.

Don't know if you guys saw all the Xmas goodies yet. There are even a few new seasonal quests. Here's my gingerbread cookie shield. (Not kidding!)

Yeah, my brother has a TON of the Christmas stuff...that's so awesome. Does anyone know how long the new items and quests are going to be available? I'm stuck at home, unable to play (and it's killing me inside) until Monday evening.

I love this game. I love it so much. I forgot how awesome it was and how much fun it could be, and I'm quickly getting HIGHLY addicted to it...almost like I was with Diablo 2. But I can't talk about that...it brings back terrible memories of almost failing out of high school and cravings that come with a deep, severe addiction...

Hahaha, I love the holidays. I made 62k off of candy cane shards today.

EDIT: Whisper me IG if you want to know the farming secret of doom for CCS's.
EDIT2: Stock up on candy canes (not shards - candy canes from the collectors), I guarantee you they will be worth assloads after the holidays are over. (They remove DP when used/eaten/whathaveyou).

I have a bunch of Char Carvings...but where is the guy that I go to to trade them in for candy cane stuff? Is he in Ascalon? My brother showed me last night, but I dno't remember and he's at work until 5.

And when is the candy cane stuff going to be done and the game back to normal? I want to cash in on this as much as possible before they change back.

In Ascalon NW corner below where storage is. They collectors look like game characters though.
