In between Auction House work, Chaitee has been sneaking in some leveling trying to get to level 101. She keeps trying to pull Keya stunts, and frankly, she doesn't have the gear, and makes rookie mistakes. She's already died four times, even when sacrificing her combat pet and her gaurdian pet, Hati. Chaitee is far too reckless. On another quest, she managed to drown inside the sunken ship near Shackles Den. Aszuna is the least dangerous place in the Broken Shores, and Chaitee is likely to die many more times.
Chaitee is 71% toward level 101. Java, who had similar issues when she was leveling, had some advice for Chaitee. Java got a lot of leveling done because she chose two easy to level professions, Mining and Herbalism. By coincidence, Chaitee also has those professions. Even better, she has never bothered to do anything with them (2/75 with herbs and 21/75 with mining). She needs another 30% to reach Level 101, and those two professions just might do the trick without getting herself killed too often. It will also give Chaitee a chance to take some time and see her new world.
Chaitee, for once, took Java's advice. She and her pets settled at the Illidari Stand and then took to the skies of Azsuna. Her flower and rock picking was a bit awkward at first. Chaitee kept standing too close and pulling nearby mobs. Chaitee earned a fews hisses from her pet, Taz, before she figured out the proper distance. She started to get the hang of things and the mistakes grew fewer and the leveling went faster. They got into a solid routine of set up, send in the pets, Chaitee blasting with her gun at range, and watching things die.
In a much shorter time than she would have figured, Chaitee reached Level 101. She has no expectations of leveling further unless things get pretty slow on the combat front. She will work with the Hunter's Lodge on a few things when she has time. Mostly, she needs to be at the Auction House. Prices have fallen precipitously over the past two to three weeks and the flow of gold is tight. Chaitee needs to get back to her real job.
In other news. Keya is determined to go after the Maw of Souls again, despite the issues that cut her first attempt short. She still has only seven of eight pieces of gear to complete the Class Hall Campaign quest "A Classy Outfit." She still needs the leggings, and the only option left to her is the Maw of Souls.
Keya's friend Almond is a raider and healer. She has offered to run Maw of Souls with Keya to get the achievement if time, circumstance, and schedules allow. Keya has stopped worrying about it. She knows it will come sooner or later.
