The Grind

As you can probably tell from the fact that I only talk about questing here, I'm not much of a grind-player. Now that I've crossed the 30th level line with a couple of characters I've started to see that a little grinding is probably a good thing.

Quest Guide: Asee-Teph - Part II

This is Part II of the Asee-Teph quest guide. You can find Part I right here. I'll be talking about the quests in this zone area by area, more or less in order of difficulty, since there is no clear linear progression through the entire zone. As I mentioned in the previous part of the guide, you should be ready to adjust your questing plans based on the PvP situation in the zone. Let's begin.

Quest Guide: Asee-Teph - Part I

Welcome to Hell.

I've heard people say that Asee-Teph is the zone that causes many people to quit Allods, and I can see why some people could get frustrated here. There are major changes in the style of play when you hit this zone from both the PvP and PvE perspective. Hopefully this guide will help you avoid the frustration and get through this area with your sanity intact. You can find the quest list for this zone right here. You can also read about the zone's treasure  and reputation. In Part I of this two-part guide I'm going to cover general information and tactics for dealing with this zone. In Part II I'll move on to a more quest-oriented discussion.

Quest Guide: Tenebra

Tenebra is another divided Allod, with a northern and southern half. The instance here, Darkblood Citadel, sits between the two halves. The quests for Tenebra can be found right here. This is a relatively short zone, if you know where you're going you can clear it in one or two play sessions.

Quest Guide: Frozen Frontier

Frozen Frontier is the zone following Siveria (quest guides for Siveria: Part I and Part II). To reach Frozen Frontier, use the June Stone at the Cape of Good Hope in Siveria. The complete list of Frozen Frontier quests can be found right here. The reputation faction for this area is the Gibberlings, and, as noted in the Reputation Guide, it's one of the easiest factions to grind rep for.

Quest Guide: Siveria - Part II

This is Part II of a two-part guide to Sivera. Part I can be found here. I ended part one in Gravestein, ready to head north to Sieged Stronghold, but that wasn't quite accurate. There's one loose end to tie up in Gravestein. Let's get started!

Quest Guide: Siveria - Part I

Welcome to Siveria, the first of two icy zones you'll face on your path to level 40. To reach this area, travel north-east through Lightwood to the big waterfall and follow the trail up to Molotovka in Siveria, the first quest hub. As always, a full list of quests is available. Siveria is another long zone, so this will be a two part guide.

Suggestion Hit List

No, this isn't a post about skill changes, nerfs, or patch problems. I think anyone that's been browsing the forums over the last few days has had their fill of those conversations. Nope, this is about Allods as a whole and some ideas and suggestions about how the game could be made better for everyone involved. This is opinion only of course, and I'm sure at least a few people will disagree with what I say here. Such is the nature of MMOs. Here we go, my hit list:

Quest Guide: Darkwater

Welcome to Darkwater, a very atmospheric and fun area full of folklore and creepy quests. So far this is my favorite area in the game. What follows is a quest guide to help you through the many twists and turns of this shadowy wood. While you're there you may want to check out the reputation guide for more information on the zone's repeatable reputation quests.
