Maidae’s 6th TR, running reaper

This TR Maidae is running everything or reaper difficulty with Mis, and when we got to level 18 I wanted to flag for both Cannith raids and ToD. I usually also post on the lfm. Here are some pictures from the quests. Last night we also ran the Tide Turns in the Denith chain.

Raids week 115

Titus sent me a tell just before the raids that they’d be 5-6 Sokos for raids and that they could do a second group if there was a lot of interest in the raids, and also asked if we could start with KT. When I logged on, Osi and Ero were waiting for raids, and I had intended to wait for Tahlua, but then put up a “reserved” lfm and asked people in the channel to hit it so I’d get a sense of how many we were. I counted more than 12 in my waiting list and told Titus we were too many and that they should do a second group, then I accepted all the non Sokos (checking that they were already in the other group). This was Saturday March 16.

Raid 1.1: Killing Time LH: failure
We almost wiped in the first trash spawn, but managed to get to the second rift before wiping. Good attempt with jibbers and several kiters, but in the end lag got the best of us and we couldn’t recover.

Static group running reaper

After a tough run through To Curse the Sky and Creeping Death on reaper 1, the static group moved on to running Lords of Dust on reaper 3. In our our first attempt we all got knocked down by the cats at the first altar and ended up wiping, so we released and restarted. The second try went better and we managed to get through the quests without the whole party dying. I didn’t take many screenshots, but here are a couple.

Ruffshot, Schoan, Valdayanie and Jarvanna took level 16 before starting the LoD chain, while Judet who didn’t yet have enough xp for it was still 15.

That’s all I have for you for this time.
Thank you for stopping by.

Raids week 114

Raids 114 was Saturday March 9 and I mainly invited people from the EEraids channel. Here is the short run down of the nights raids:

 

1. R2 Old Baba’s Hut
With Titus tanking, I suggested we try a different difficulty than we usually do. Difficulty: R2, shambler tank: Titus, red crow tanks: Titus and Osiride. Side split: left: Osiride, Lubash, Tahlua, Papewaiio, Haleyh, Cimpletan, rest right. My side has at least 3 insta killers for totems and 3 puzzlers, so most of the hut run was fast. Low dps on baba, but no issues with tanking. I spent some time taking screenshots while hitting shadows with sunburst to see what information I’d get. I also spent a lot of time under the hut and Osi threw me some healing. Completion time: 53 min 53 s. Loot: 125 Hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Memory of a Tailor’s Duress, Vestments of Ravenloft, Spite, the Fractured Shards, Dusk, the Light Descends, Suffering, the Half of Whole, a +8 upgrade tome of str.

The Anniversary Event 2019

Last Sunday after doing my raids blog, I spent some time farming the anniversary dungeon on Cerge, most of the time with 2 or 3 piker accounts with me. I picked Cerge since I figured he’d be able to kill the optional bosses the quickest. I will do another run later to get a recording, but here are some screenshots from my runs. The screenshots are in room order, but not in run order. I was running at CR34 since I was told that +4 levels over your own would award you the same amount of party favors as +5. Yesterday I learned that Lichabel is bugged (from Cordovan during the live stream) and does not actually add to your party favors and can therefor be skipped.

I always started with Steelstar. He and his dog were rather easy for me.

Thazara 1.7

I am quite happy with my build so I haven’t changed it much in this update. I’ve added Thaz’s epic past lives, tomes and adjusted the enhancements a bit. I may play around with the enhancements some more. The biggest difference is that I switched tier 5 from disciple to servant.

Note, Thazara is a build for running at cap, not for running from level 1. If you’d do a similar cleric as a TR build, you might want to switch the order of some of the feats.

Raids week 113

The raids blog has started to feel a bit tedious for me to do every week, it takes too long to do and is a bit repetitive. Since I still want to keep a record of the weekly raids, I am going to try a new approach and do a much shorter summary of the raids. Here is Sat March 2.

 

1. Old Baba’s Hut. 4 from my guild Phoenix Clan (including me), 2 from Soko Irrlicht, 4 from EEraids channel, 1 off the lfm and Erofen that already was in party when I logged on. Difficulty: R1, shambler tank: Osiride. Red crow tank Tahlua and Osi, but I asked Osi to switch in the hut since they were taking a while to kill the lesser crows. Haley took over so Osi could help kill crows. Tahlua got to do the teams this week. Shamblers ran off a bit in the end fight, but Osi got them back quickly. Several deaths from wisps, some from shamblers. I again spent a lot of time under the hut. Completion time:  54 minutes, 31 seconds. Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Torn, That Which Renders Despair, The Invisible Cloak of Strahd, Tremor, the Breaker of BonesMemory of a Tailor’s Duress and Gulthias Staff.

Raids week 112

Last Saturday when I logged on, Osi sent me a party invite. I hesitated, but then decide to check if he had gathered the guildies, which he had. But, himself and Vonkiprus were only level 22. I complained a bit about it, but Osi insisted that their past lives make up for the lack of level, and I agreed to let them raid with us. All the epic raids except for KT and RSO let you enter if you are epic level. RSO is min level 27 and I was told that you need to be 28 to enter KT. I started by asking for Soko names (in eeraids channel) and others who wanted to join us for raids, then invited the sokos first and then the first two to comment in eeraids. Intha got the first spot, but said he was running with Melubb, so gave his spot to the next in line which was Leo.

I spoke a bit with Titus about what difficulty to do Baba‘s on and reaper 1 was chosen. I again asked Titus about teams, and since there were 5 Sokos in the group, Sokos went left and Titus chose Leo as an additional person to go left. Osi wanted to do scarecrows right, so I told Tahlua she could help with puzzles instead (Tahlua usually parks the scarecrows). The baba fight was slower than last week, but the part through the hut went really well. My side was a bit slow on the totems, but Tahlua was fast on the puzzles, so we won some time there. During the second time through, wisps spawned and I told the party to always kill all the wisps. In the second baba fight I got aggro of the hut and spent almost the whole fight under the hut. In the end fight we killed the wisps, scarecrows and then moved baba north. Titus did a good job of grabbing the shamblers and keeping them away from the party and we were able to beat baba down without issues. The raid completed in 51 minutes and we got 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Molten Silver Gauntlets and The Invisible Cloak of Strahd also dropped.

Raids week 111

Two Saturdays in a row the interest for the Sat raids were was so high that I got overwhelmed and struggled to make a decision. Due to this, last week Saturday I had decided to first invite my guildies, then people from EEraids channel. Since people were changing characters I decided to post an empty lfm with “some spots reserved”. As soon as I did this I got three tells asking me what we’re running and before I had a chance to answer, the same people hit the lfm. Since things were a bit calmer than last week I actually managed to make sure my guildies and Sokos had a spot before filling the raid, and only one person of the applicants didn’t get a spot.

 

Titus was there to tank for us so we decided to do Baba R1. I was hesitant due to the lack of casters and insta killers for totems, but my worries later turned out to be completely unfounded. I asked Titus to help me split the the group into teams and the teams worked out well. I was doing puzzles on the right side, I’m assuming Papewaiio did them on the left side. We had a lot of dps on baba, and the baba fights completed quite fast. In the run through the hut I had two rogues assassinating the totems and when they weren’t I used my frog to take them out – which this time succeeded every time. I noticed I had some buff that gave me a lot more hp and wisdom (bard song?) than what I usually have.

During puzzles I struggled a bit with timing at times and I didn’t get the puzzles done in one go, but we were about as fast as the other side. We get to the end fight, kill off wisps and red crows before attacking baba. When the shamblers spawn Titus is ready for them and manage to pull them aside right away. This time our dps was so high that the shamblers never managed to do their debuff and we completed the run in record time with 0 deaths. Completion time: 35 minutes, 47 seconds. Kills: 240. Deaths 0. We got 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate and Patience Through Peril and Molten Silver Gauntlets dropped.
