Raids week 151

Raids 151 were Wednesday Dec 4 and Saturday Dec 7.

Wednesday

1. Project Nemesis LH

There was a server restart just before the raids, and when I got back on mine was the first lfm up. The ship buffs always take a while to repopulate after a restart, so we couldn’t buff. The group took a little bit longer to fill this time but eventually we did. Bruder was our main tank, Drex off tank (until I failed to heal him), Sarghii on laser. Completion time: 27 min, 30 s. Loot: 84 nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate and Baz’Morath, the Curator of Decay.

Thazmaniac soloing R2

 

After my new warlock hit cap I’ve been mostly farming Ravenloft on R1 for ED xp and it’s been hard with a lot of deaths. I’ve brought my alt Darthpyre along to pike for xp and usually posted an lfm with not too many joiners. Last week I decided to run Wheloon for first time bonus xp, and this time I stepped in on R2. After a difficult Lesson in Deception I stepped into Thrill of the Hunt – expecting the end fight to be really really hard. Somehow I not only managed to find a spot where I could stand and not get hit – I even managed to rescue the captive. I was thrilled. I continued with Army of Shadow and even though the hireling died a lot, I didn’t, and also managed to complete that one with no deaths. In an off ED.

Farming Memoirs

I recently heard of the +2 reaper helm that gives a +2 bonus to all ability stats. With the +10 loot bonus last weekend I bought some treasure bonus pots and headed into memoirs to do some loot farming (I wanted a circlet with the +2 bonus). I started out running Thazara on R1 and after ransacking her, I switched to Cerge and ran R2. The first 2-3 runs I logged the pikers (alts) off inside the quest, but then I just parked them outside and entered to loot.

After the first two runs I started bringing a hireling to heal me during the boss fights. It was a lot less stressful when I could stand there attacking the boss with the hireling throwing heals at me, rather than me having to constantly keep myself healed. Thazara’s aura was not enough when the boss would hit me for ~200 per hit. Have a look at some of the screenshots.

One of the champion chests ended up in the ground, and I just couldn’t loot it.

Raids week 149

Raids 149 were Wednesday Nov 20 and Saturday Nov 23.

Wednesday

1. Project Nemesis LH

I did not feel like attempting LE, so just posted for LH and took the ppl who joined. Bruder was our main tank and I assigned roles – me on laser, Gaijya on SW puzzle, Piano Irk, Cimp NW and I think I asked Devil to watch east puzzles. Bruder took Rudus and Zulkis and I think Tugash Gish. Completion time: 17 min, 14 s. Loot: 84 nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate.

The standing stone

If you watched Cordovan’s live stream about Borderlands, you know they placed a standing stone (cause Standing stone games) tree in the wilderness. I found it 🙂

I’m sure many of you have already spotted the tree, I just though it was a fun detail.

That’s all for this post.
Thank you for stopping by.

The Anniversary Bundle

I have a thing for bank space. I have more alts that are bank alts than I have alts that I play, I’ve upgraded the played chars inventories and character banks and I’ve fully upgraded both shared bank and mats bank. I was hoping to add another 10 slots to my shared bank when I realized the only way for me to do so would be to buy the 10th Anniversary of Free to Play Launch Bundle. The bundle consists of 10 additional shared bank slots, a supreme +8 tome of ability and a heart of blood. I didn’t need the heart and I hadn’t intended to get a +8 tome, but since I had the points saved up, and the bundle price was less than what the shared bank and the tome would cost at a normal discount – I decided to buy it.

I decided to use the tome on Thazmaniac – since she didn’t have any higher level tomes and she is currently played in epics. Check out the video if you like.

That’s all for this post.
Thank you for stopping by.

P.S. The max shared bank slots is 250 without the bundle and 260 with.

Raids week 148

Raids 148 were Wednesday Nov 13 and Sat Nov 16. I also joined Epic’s raids Tuesday Nov 12, but they won’t be listed here.

Wednesday

1. Project Nemesis LE

I again posted for “Elite if the right group”, and decided to stick to it. Osi was our main tank and Vintovka our off tank. Peido was main heals and I was on laser. As we started I stumbled, I had the wrong potion hot bared, so when curse hit I managed to interrupt my potion, it didn’t cast so I died. Things got really messy and we were down to maybe 4 ppl alive. I did consider restarting, but said no to a recall, since Osi was alive. Somehow we recovered and completed the run after 36 min, 11 s. Loot: 125 nemesis runes, 35 threads of fate, The Fractured Elegance, Attunement’s Gaze, Stickerclick, the Bitter Hail of Bolts, Radiant Ring of Taer Valaestas and Ethereal Gaze.

New keyboard

Since I’ve done a few blogs about my setup before – when I got a new table and when I got the new monitors, I figured I’d just as well do a blog about the new keyboard. I just replaced my keyboard, since the old one was really starting to bother me when I was typing – I constantly had to double check that it registered the key I had pressed. Since a mechanical is quite loud, I went with a quieter membrane one, but one that supports the same settings software as the mouse I got some time ago. Have a look at the screenshots below. This is Razer Cynosa Chroma.

The keyboard supports a number of preset lighting settings, as well as lighting customizations. Here a a few of the preset ones.
