Free Realms: "Comparatively Stupid"
Posted: Tuesday March 9th, 2010 by

It's difficult, but I try to make sure I play Free Realms (or another game) for at least 30 minutes on nights before a comic. The idea is to keep me in game whether I intend to do a gaming news comic or not. Well I was inclined to try to hit blacksmithing level 10 so I could get the quest off my list and started looking over the patterns I had. I trudged my way through a level before I was so eye-crossingly annoyed with having to constantly smelt ore, buy supplies, etc. that I logged out and that was that.

The next day I googled FR Blacksmithing to see if there were any tips on what I could do to ease the process some and found a post by someone asking what the best pattern was for leveling. At the very end of the thread someone illuminated that they'd never wasted time or money on patterns, they just used the game's Activity Guide to do Forging and burned through levels that way.

I smacked my forehead. I hadn't even thought of that. Hell, I hadn't even considered the Activity Guide as a way to generate stars. I thought it was a way to generate coins. Shows what I know huh? Well, last night I finally hit Blacksmithing 20. And I took a moment to consider how long it would have taken if I hadn't found that little piece of Activity Guide advice. From that came the idea behind the comic.

So be honest...
What's the hardest thing in game you've done before finding out there was a much easier way?
