With only about an hour to play, I didn't have much hope for getting anywhere
. I did make it my goal to try and collect the pieces of the Armageddon Blade. This posed a bit of a problem because I had no idea where to start looking for the remaining four pieces.
That is until I looked at my world map. They mark the areas with a floating yellow shard. Handy.
On the way to a piece, I ran into Uriel. I offered to take her out for coffee. She countered with a proposal to fight to the death. Since they're pretty much the same thing, we clashed. She whooped me the first time, though not from lack of me trying. I even went Chaos form on her and she shrugged it off. The term "tough bird" comes to mind. Bad puns aside, I used my dodge in the next round to stay away from her and attack when there was a clear shot. It took longer, but worked better than my "go in 'guns' blazing" tactic.
Collecting the rest of the pieces went smoothly. I just knew
that something would attack me on the way to Ulthane's place, but it never happened. Quite a pleasant surprise, actually. He went to work and forged the blade for me. I noticed he didn't include a slot for an ability booster (¬_¬), how nice of him to forget that.
