What’s the difference between doing these 2 things?
Bring up the game menu and click on RECREATE CHARACTER
Fight your way through The Black Keep and kill The Kinscourge for the Tears of Two Races. Go to The Sinkhole and kill the Undead Dragon for the Star of the Champion. Go to the Palace of the Witch Queen and kill The Witch Queen for the Mask of the Witch Queen. Brave the lava and snakemen of The Well of Skelos and kill the last serpentman for The Shining Trapezohedron. Travel to The Mounds and open the tome to The Barrow King, kill The King Beneath for the Diadem of the Giant-kings. Go to Gallaman’s Tomb and kill a giant crocodile for a Jagged Scourgestone Piece. Go to Buccaneer Bay and kill Gall/Hekkr for a Shattered Scourgestone Piece. Climb down into The Passage and kill the Sand Reaper Hive Queen for a Broken Scourgestone Piece. Travel to the Sandswept Ruins and create the Scourgestone from the 3 pieces. Climb up to the Altar of Chaosmouth and use it to combine all 6 items into The Keystone. Use The Keystone.
Both options delete your character, cause you to lose all of your structures and items, and force you to start over.
So what’s the point of doing that long drawn out quest when you can do the same thing with one click of the submenu?
