Cleric equipment.

I haven't posted an update for a while on what I've been doing in the Realms. I spent a couple of weeks working on getting my new cleric equipped. Currently it's dressed as follows:
You are using:
<used as light>      the sigil of A'enari
<worn on finger>     the shade ring
<worn on finger>     the shade ring
<worn around neck>   (Magical) (Glowing) (Humming) scales of alpha & omega
<worn around neck>   (Magical) (Glowing) (Humming) scales of alpha & omega
<worn on body>       (Magical) the Aegis
<worn on head>       the cloth hood of the Chosen
<worn on legs>       the cloth leggings of the Chosen
<worn on feet>       (Magical) moccasins
<worn on hands>      claws of the mole
<worn on arms>       silver dragonhide armguards
<worn as shield>     (Glowing) (Humming) shield of the Valkyrie
<worn about body>    the cloth robe of the Chosen
<worn about waist>   (Magical) (Glowing) the platinum band of the Draco Viridis
<worn around wrist>  (Glowing) (Humming) a Bracer of Light
<worn around wrist>  Queen Guenevere's bracelet
<wielded>            (Magical) (Glowing) The Dragon Claw of Legend
<held>               (Humming) the Storm
<worn on ears>       (Magical) a crystalline teardrop
<worn on eyes>       the shades
<worn on back>       a thick piece of lizard hide
<worn over face>     [nothing]
<worn around ankle>  a turqoise anklet
<worn around ankle>  a blue, glassy chain
All fairly easy to get and cheap equipment but for a cleric it does enough to get it equipped well enough to be useful. The most interesting item there is the claws of the mole. This is the gnome totem item. To get it you need to teleport into the gnome totem room in Vast Horizons and then accept the totem item. I was lucky this time and landed in the right room in less than 20 minutes. To get some of the other totem items I've spent 6 hours teleporting around trying to get it. The stats on it are:
>exam claws
You take a closer look at claws of the mole in inventory...
A set of thick, shovel shaped claws look to be the perfect digging tool, and
would be nasty if used in a fight.
As you look more closely, you notice that it is in superb condition.
It appears to be within or below your level range.
Object 'claws of the mole' is infused with your magic...
It is a level 50 armor, weight 2.
Locations it can be worn:  hands
Special properties:  none
Races allowed:  Gnome
This armor has a gold value of 40000.
Owner:  Charix
Armor class is 12 of 12.
Affects backstab by 10.
Affects damage roll by 5.
Affects mana by 15.
Affects susceptible:blindness by 10%
Affects disarm by 20.
Affects carrying capacity by 25.
Not bad for a free item. Besides working on the equipping the cleric I've done a few other projects including levelling and equipping a warrior, killing a few mobs (including revenge on Julajimus!!!) and some other secret projects...

Been working on levelling a cleric for the last month. One thing that has amazed me is how many experienced players don't realise that there are mini quests available for levels 2-5 in the academy from the Spirit Guide. The level 2 quest I got was this:
You raise your hand in response.
The Spirit Guide says to you 'You believe yourself to be ready for a test.'
'Since you are level 2 we will keep this one easy.'
'In the garden of The Halls of Knowledge is a fountain. The
'fountain features a statue of a couple. The couple's names are
'inscribed on the fountain's plaque. So, Charix. What is her name?'

You say 'Mariyah'
Spirit Guide Selmanovic nods in agreement with you.
Spirit Guide Selmanovic tells you 'Good, you've seen it. You're able to notice m
ore than the casual explorer.'
You gain 400 experience.
Easy 400 experience points. I was a little disappointed that my level 5 quest did not involve receiving any equipment but it's always worth a shot. A bit later on I tried out another quest I'd never done before in the northern trade route starting at Mayera.
Inside a Small Chapel
Made from logs and painted a white color, this small chapel was built to aid
the sick and dying as they traveled through the forest. A few cots have been
set up around the room, each with a thick grey blanket and a small pillow. A
barrel filled with water rests in one corner of the room, with strips of cloth
in a neat pile beside it. A fireplace at the other end, provides both warmth
and comfort.
Exits: northwest
A woman tends to the wounds of the sick and dying.
Mayera is shrouded in flowing shadow and light.
A small girl lies in one of the cots, her face deathly pale.
Mayera smiles at you.
Mayera says 'Are you the one sent here to help me?'
Mayera says 'That poor child is dying, I can't leave her alone'
Mayera wets a strip of cloth and places it on the girl's forehead.
Mayera says 'We must hurry if we are to save her, she's burning up.'
Mayera says 'Just nod if you are able to help me'

You nod solemnly.
Mayera breathes a sigh of relief.
Mayera says 'To make a remedy to cure the girl, I need 5 items.'
Mayera says 'bay leaves, beholder candy, black cohosh, a head of
Mayera says 'lettuce and basilisk salve. Please hurry and bring all'
Mayera says 'of these back to me. If you aren't sure of a certain'
Mayera says 'item, just ask me about it.'
Mayera gives you a hug and wishes you good luck.

You give a small bottle of basilisk saliva to Mayera.
You give beholder candy to Mayera.
You give bay leaves to Mayera.
You give a head of lettuce to Mayera.
You give black cohosh to Mayera.
Mayera puts all the ingredients into a large bowl and mixes them.
A flash of blinding white light fills the room for a moment.
Mayera turns to the girl and applies the ointment.
Mayera says 'I have something for you in return for all your help'
Mayera drops a thick, white salve.
Mayera says 'A little something to aid you in your travels.'
Mayera thanks you again and returns to watch over the girl.
It was quite an easy quest to do though I did not know where a couple of items came from off the top of my head but I managed to find track them down without too much effort.

In the end my cleric reached level 50 and ended up with a 620hp and 379mana base - not too bad. Next job is equipping it.
