I just wanted to add my thanks to Shrimpiie, Impers, Staff and Enchanters as well.
I am only in my 2nd month in game and I was dragged along at short notice to this event by xvBabyvx, who suggested it would be amazing for me. I said, "sure", not knowing what the hell I was getting into. I quickly grabbed all my tools and raced up the road on my new steed to join her on the journey to Blackmoor.
I arrived and had no idea what to do, with the vague understanding that my tools would be better when I left. First up I found I had a room at the Inn complete with a bed for that much needed Sleep Bonus, I felt a little bit special
Over the next few days I dumped my tools into the forges and was amazed to see these high end QL tools come out...they were mine! Then it was explained that I can get them enchanted to help boost my skill gain, simply amazing...and for free, all thanks to the generosity of those in attendance. A bonus on top of that was the fact that I could then Imp other peoples tools and increase my skill gain! *Disclaimer, my imping was low rate but others perfected them after I finished, phew.
When I arrived I had 30kg in my inventory, when I left I could hardly walk because of the weight!
From a new player to the community, thankyou for your help and generous spirits, I will always remember this, my very first Impalong.
