I finally did one of the Tanaan Quests: The Ruins of Kra'nak tonight. I'm rolling in oil, rolling, I say.
The first part of this experience was a quest to help Scrollkeeper Reshad find clues at the Ruins. He was so awful. Standing on top of me, standing on the mobs I was fighting so his dialogue box kept coming up, standing on corpses making them difficult to loot. He couldn't hear me but I said many bad things to him.
It culminated with one of those dread "Defend Reshad" sequences. I can fight two, three of these mobs tops, more than that and I'm dead. I died way more than normal tonight. This sequence was the only one where I wished I had a group, because no way could I prevail.
I couldn't believe it when I got back to my body and the fight was over, and Reshad completed my quest there. Luckily the Stinker From Mars ran off and I could work on the rest of the objective for the oil alone, stealthed, without him being underfoot. Whap, whap.
I found so many treasures in the place, my item level shot up to a respectable number, finally. Too good.
