Hello - I have been playing for a few weeks, and made it to 80th level. The Victory or Death story adventure is driving me crazy, I cannot get past the airship being attacked by 2 dragons dropping Risen. At this point is just frustrating and boring to die, be revived by Caithe, die, revived, die, etc until I have had enough (hours) and log out. When I log back in, it's start with 'collect the power cores' again, and another hour+ to get to the 2 dragons and live.die.repeat all over again. There is NO WAY I will be able to take out Zhaitan with my thief if I can't even do this.
That is the other hard part: if I log out (I don't have much of a life, but sometimes I do need to go out, eat, sleep, go to work) it kicks me back to 'meet Caithe and collect the power cores' again - and that just sucks.
If I move on and skip it, I still have that little green star in the upper right corner telling me how to get back to it, and NOT how to get to anything else. What do I do? I am okay skipping the story, but I want that green star to realize I am skipping it, too, and go away!
Am I missing something? Can the story be turned off?
