Tonight was all about going back to being a villain. I ran 5 tip missions, and then before I did the morality mission I went to Eden and then The Hive to gather up those badges. I also later grabbed the Sewer and Abandoned Sewer badges, which so far as I can figure out is all of the explore badge accolades I can get blueside. (I can't get Atlas Park because one badge is in a location only heroes can access.)
But in between all that my friend ran an ITF, so I joined and hit level 48... and am now within a few bubbles of 49.
Then I went back redside and blew up Croatoa. :D
I finished by converting 50 merits into a villain merit. I had nearly 600 merits by that point, and about 550 million influence.
I've sold all of my Eradication IOs. They sold very quickly once I offered them for a more reasonable price. I'm suspicious that the price was rising just as I was dropping my asking price, but anyway, that meant some good money coming in.
Tomorrow night we run ITF yet again. :D
