After having killed about 145 lions, I've finally completed the Savannah! Between the Shadow Weavers, the lions, and the Zebras, peace has finally been restored for now in the Savannah. I've unlocked the newest garden mole and activated both teleporters. I'm now on my way to Zamunda, but first, I've got a few comments on the start of Zafaria. Stay tuned for more updates from Kingsisle, too.
The beginning of Zafaria, while it got us started on the storyline, was a bit tedious. For instance, we first simply aided a few people of the town - fighting this and that. Then, Vir and others wanted us to return for more work in the Marketplace, where we became very familiar with the creatures there, fighting them over and over in the few battle areas that reside there.
The Savannah was full of long, annoying tasks that resulted in the killing of 145 lions exactly - ironically on both of my characters. Perhaps, although spread out, everyone has to kill this many. How many lions had you killed after completing the Savannah?
Learning of the Council of Light near the end of the location kept my interest, though. If you had the quest for the history "locations," you got to learn a bit about them near the end of the location. The picture shows Ambrose, Greyrose, Diego, and who is probably the Emperor of Moo Shu. I've spoken of these few and the coincidences in which they appear together with my Morganthe "prophecizing," so you might take a look if you get the chance.
In the final battle of the Savannah, the cheats were actually working this time, and I was surprisingly dispelled after every attack spell of one type that I used. Fortunately, I had low pip spells prepared in the deck that quickly took care of this and ended the battle swiftly.
Seeing Zamunda and its lush, green decor was quite refreshing as opposed to the sandy Savannah.
