A trek to the high mountains
One day i decided to explore and look for some lucky black ice nodes or something else that might be usefull in the high mountains up north.
The enviroment in the north makes it quite a challenge to concuer at such a young age, so i loaded up with spicy food, some water, slipped in to my “uber” shaman cold resistence gear and off i went.
At once i hit the snow the cold tightenen me up, and i was glad to have remembered to put on my boots.
After a long trek wich included borrowing other mountaineers cabins for shelter i reached a mountaintop far, far up north.
Much to my surprize i found that here, on the wery top of a mountain a giant resides!
He was gloating and looking down at me wondering what i was doing in this unforgiving area.
Right here, in the most unfriendy weather possible he learned me his religion, Ymir.
Now, beeing only lvl 30 i was for sure in need of some armor or items to help with frostbite, so i gathered this may be useful?
After all, he is standing on top of a high mountain in blistering cold, looking calm and in control of the enviroment.
Happy with my endevours and my new learned religion i was heading back, running through the same cabins other explorers had built for this wery purpose, with out a door, welcoming you inside to set up a fireplace, eat som spicy meat and relax before continuing the long way back home to the green north.
Now, building the religious symbol went like a breeze and i spendt some time checking out what could be made of this new found religion.
I must admit i was a tad bit surprized when i found out i could craft a whole set of armor from this here altar!
Hmm, maybe i was right?
Maybe there was some armor we could use in the snow at lower levels then 40?
Well, not so lucky i
m afraid, it turns out the armor possible to craft via the Ymir altar have HEAT resistence! Now, id like to know the logic behind how the h… a giant standing on top of a blistering cold mountain give me the possibility to craft gear suited for the wery hot desert areas of the exiled world?
One of the best in fact for this purpose.
I mean, dont get me wrong, i like the visuals of the armor, but i am not so comfertable with the logic behind it:)
Anyways i had a good trip up North, and more to come after i hit 40 and can craft some Vanir equipment.
I only pray now that the normal Vanir set you get at 40 is going to help me in the snow, as the exploring was a pure joy, and seeing how others have had the thought to leave insulated mountain cabins behind for shelter, without doors is something i never thought of doing, but was o so usefull and “cool” to experience:)
I will for sure do the same on my next trip:)
Maybe there is hope for us yet, even tho we are exiled…for now.
