This weekend I got my first job to level 20 in Free Realms. Postman. To be honest, I would not have thought this would be the first, but grinding postal jobs is relatively easy. Unlike cooking, it requires no supplies, and unlike pretty much all the other free jobs, you can just sit at the mailbox and play the mail sorting games over and over. Throw on top of that a star bonus, and I went from 14 to 20 very quickly.
The reason I chose to focus on Postman was because I wanted to create a guild, and you have to be level 15 in some job to do that, and Postman was at 14. My next closest was Brawler at 10 and Chef at 9. Adventurer was also at 9, but that job is the longest/hardest to level since you have to actually run around discovering stuff.
So, anyway, with my Postman job at 20, I created my guild. <and what army> Initially I was going to go for an alternate spelling, like calling it the “anwatt army” or “ahnwot army”, but in the end I decided just to go traditional, so now in game I appear as “Jhaer Buegren <and what army>”. If you haven’t gotten it yet, its a play on the idea of when you say you can beat someone and they retort, “Oh yeah? You and what army?”
Of course, I am the only member of my guild, because my friends list is STILL empty. I just can’t seem to get online on the same server at the same time as the people I know who play. Perhaps in the future this will change. If you are playing Free Realms and want to join, let me know and I’ll look for you.
In the meantime, I’m still grinding out quests trying to see if I can exhaust the free content. Sanctuary is getting pretty bare, and I’ve put a large dent in that area with the hedge maze that I can never remember the name of… the real trick is making note of the repeatable quests. No offense to the game (or any game for that matter), but repeatable quests are rarely designed to be truly repeatable. Sure, you can do them over and over, but the quest text often doesn’t lend itself to explaining WHY I can repeat it. If you have lost something and I have found it, seeing that you’ve lost it again and I can find it again is particularly lame.
The freeloading continues…
