SOTA - Something magical

I think Richard Garriott's SOTA has something which other games don't. Which is the absence of finite hard-caps in the game and the use-based character advancement system. There's something irresistible about being able to improve your character every time you play. Every time I log in, whether it is slaying monsters or mining, I know I am advancing my character in some way. This is what makes the game great to me.

SOTA - Mining at 110!

Woot, just levelled my Mining skill to 110. Producer/crafting skills do not decay, so this is my first skill beyond GM level. It takes an additional 1.93 million XP to level up from 100 to 110 level.

SC2 - StarCraft Remastered!

Woot, purchased StarCraft: Remastered and got 3 cool portraits (in addition to Co-op Commander Alexi Stukov) in SC2 as a reward!

SOTA - Pickaxe of Prosperity

Woot, just bought a Prosperity Tool Reward for 51k gold and used it to claim a Pickaxe of Prosperity. This will help in increasing my mining returns.

SOTA - My first crafted Blacksmith weapon!

I crafted my first Copper Two-handed Sword today. It uses a Copper Large Weapon Blade (+10% Weapon Critical Chance) and a Copper Hilt (+1% Weapon Critical Chance) for a total bonus of +11% Weapon Critical Chance.

SOTA - My first Masterworked weapon!

Two days ago, I tried Masterworking a normal Longsword purchased from a Blacksmith, and got the Weapon Damage masterwork bonus. This added a +2 to my Longsword for +2.5% Weapon Damage. This subtracted 10 from my weapon durability as well.
