I've been pretty busy. Here's the pics to prove it happened:
I actually did it! Once I got going with the flame gloves, ring of fire, and clan avatar I was making excellent xp! I did 1.2m xp in 6 hours today. That probably beat con for fastest leveling of 98-99. So yeah that's pretty much what I've been doing the past month-ish, with lots of breaks to chase stars.
Thanks to Bass Daddy, Kelledy, Uza Darkstar, and Miseryshadow who flew out to Seers to see me get the big fireworks. And thanks to our clan avatar, Steve Ortman, for getting me lots of bonus xp on top of bonus xp. I now have 9 99's and have more skills than combats again. I have no idea what I'm gonna get next but for now enjoy this incredibly nubby but tastefully flipper-matching cape. :P
