I finally made it! :D
I've been home sick for a couple of days, so I've spent far too much time playing even with the server maintainance yesterday. It took me most of today, but I finished leveling up my Lancer and completed the quests to unlock the Dragon Saber Class.
The aggressive monsters were a huge pain in the neck when completing the first quest, and the Groks and Cri Wyverns were way to hard to kill. This class had better be effing worth it. Lol.
Oh, and if you're thinking of going solo like I did, I have one word of advice: DON'T! Seriously, bring friends. These monsters are a nightmare to kill solo at level 15. Another level 15 Buster came in while I was trying to get my last two Cri Wyvern kills, and we not only killed two of them in as many minutes (I'd been trying to complete the quest for over an hour!) but it only took us about 15 minutes to get the rest that she needed as well.
So remember: solo bad, friends good.
