Obviously, I can't keep my computer from restarting forever, nor should I; that's a bad idea. But I want to stall it until Saturday, where I have nothing but free time. Anyway, the plan was for writing and art. What I did was basically nothing except my leisurely activities. See, for the last half week, I've been so exhausted that I haven't been doing so well in them. I was wrapped up in other things. But I finally got my act together, and had the time to spare, so I used it.
Among the leisurely activities is Heroes of the Realm. I've been working on upgrading my heroes' equipment a lot. See, because there's so little overlap between my army heroes and my arena team, it's basically going to take me an eternity to get my arena team up to 20. (Even though they're all at 19 right now, aside from one of them who is an army hero.) There's level 20 equips, sure, yeah, but I'm not going to get there for a while. A second round of hero upgrades is going to happen then, too. Yet it's a long ways off, especially since I'm training a replacement hero unit for the army (the same card, but its next level--think sort-of like a pokemon evolution) and an eventual replacement hero for the arena. (I'm building the skull snakes team, so I'm building up Ivan to eventually complete my team. Right now, I have two of my main army's units filling in, units that have good synergy with the other units and were chosen to stay because of that. But they're not permanent.)
So mainly, I've been upgrading their stuff, just as I'm upgrading my province. (I'm working my way up the ranks, slowly but surely, in every way possible pretty much.) And it's already had an immediate effect; I'm now only SEVENTH place in the Masters League instead of dead-last eighth! (To be honest, I kinda would prefer to be sixth, yet not fifth. The higher your rank and the higher your division, the more soulstones you get, so six would be the most I could get while still being demoted...yet it'd also then mean I'm probably among the most powerful in the Experts League all the time, getting the daily rewards there. Last time I was down there, I only came in second.)
Yet I've got more goodies yet. See, I probably make over 100,000 gold a day if I check in often enough that it doesn't max out. That gold can be put to good use purchasing market items. I look for blue and purple items, items that have the extra gem slot for when I REALLY want to customize their equips, yet I also make sure the items are as much an upgrade as possible--sometimes, there's a bit of a tradeoff, but when said tradeoff happens, I try to compensate them. Anyway, I'm really pouring a lot of investment into my arena army--so much so, that I think they're better equipped than my main army! (Until recently, they were also a full level higher. Now, only about half are.) Who, mind you, is also well-equipped.
Throw in that I get about 5 gems of grade 1-2 per day at minimum (I can get much more if I spend much more), and you have me making rapid advancements in that regard, too. Ultimately, the goal is to have the entire army--main AND Arena--be covered head to toe in level-5 gems, giving them heavy elemental resistance and heavy elemental additional damage.
...Aaaaaand, I just realized I've been saying Arena this whole time when I meant Colosseum. You either got the idea or were clueless enough to not know enough to have noticed in the first place, but I need to say it all the same.
Soyeah. That was my day.
Anyway, there's stuff about tomorrow you should know. I actually agreed to do a workout with someone from TKD, and already I'm regretting the decision. Don't get me wrong, it's something I need to do, which is why I'm going to do it. It's not an obligation; my body actually NEEDS it. But I am so not looking forward to it all the same. Especially since everything I wear he apparently insists isn't proper workout clothing even though I bought all of it from sports centers and it's brands you'd think appropriate, be it Underarmor, Dri-Fit, Spalding, or so on or so forth.
