Raids week 191

Raids 191 were Wednesday September 9 and Saturday September 12. Osi, Hamster and I also did a 3 person KT on Friday September 11.

Wednesday

1. Too Hot to Handle LN

Someone had 15 min left on the raid timer for PN, so we started with THTH. I completely forgot to screenshot this run, only got screenshots after completion. Forcy was tanking, I was sunbursting again, I’m unsure if Milamba was discoing or sunbursting or both. I had a suspicion that something had changed with the coolant tanks. Some months ago when we were testing, the coolant tanks did nothing during the last phase. Last week it seemed like the Titan didn’t come back if you didn’t complete them. I wanted to test this, but coolants got completed. Completion time: 11 min, 53 s. loot: 64 forge runes, 25 threads of fate.

Graphical glitch in Red Rain

As I was running Red Rain on Hardcore Server, the bard was a little bit ahead of me and I was running after to clear up cc’d mobs or to catch up. Suddenly the floor disappeared in front of me and I thought I was going to fall and die. I progressed cautiously – realizing the floor was not actually gone, but that my camera angle had made it disappear from view. Have a look at the screenshots below.

Catgotslain has reached her goal

I got a bit of a late start, I hadn’t planned to play Hardcore League but when some friends started talking about it, I decided I wanted to do it too. I wanted the horse. I’ve done 5k favor before, but not solo, without dying or in 3 months – yet, that was what my initial plan was. To solo to 5k favor, and stream on twitch while doing so. Actually, before doing that, I started a Youtube video-series, ExperimentA, B, C and D – I also named one ExpandableA, misspelling the name. In the Youtube series I first did 3 death tests, seeing what dying on HC would look like. Test 4 I was going to just play normally – elite at bravery level and see how long I would last. After doing about 17 videos, ppl started asking me to stream instead of doing these videos – so they could interact with me while playing. Took me a few tries to get the picture and sound quality up to where I wanted it, but then I switched to playing my other HC toon – Abandoned Summer Cat, and streaming while doing it.

On Abandoned I was playing more carefully, running elite at 4 levels above quest level. The problem was – I don’t play heroics that much and when I do, I don’t run everything. I spent ~4h a day during my summer vacation playing and streaming when I was running this toon. I had run everything elite (except for the solo quests) level 1-6, completed Into the Mists on casual to get the Ravenloft crossbow and taken 11, when I decided to run Sorrowdusk level 7s. Note, this is a chain I have run before, but very rarely do. I got to the trapped bridge and assumed it had the same mechanics as in the two previous quests with a trapped bridge – safe spots between the jets. I take a step in, notice I’m not safe and start running. I make it across, taking one or two hits and start healing myself. Had I hit my panic button – Luck of Olladra – I probably would have made it, but I was hitting my first cure key – which was cure light, so when the last trap hit me I died.

Raids week 189

Raids 189 were Tuesday August 25, Wednesday August 26 and Saturday August 29.

Tuesday

1. Project Nemesis LN – practice run

After waiting quite a while I suggested we go with what we have. I don’t believe we got any new ppl this run. After the run I decided to cancel doing practice runs due to lack of interest, only realising after I decided that – that it was the last week sharn was open to everyone anyway. Loot: 64 nemesis runes, 25 threads of fate.

Raids week 188

Raids 188 were Tuesday August 18, Wednesday August 19 and Saturday August 22. Osi and I also did a two person KT Thursday August 20.

Tuesday

1. Project Nemesis LN – practice run

The interest for the practice raids had been cooling off, and this week I only got one joiner who wanted to practice. After a too long wait (in my opinion), I decided that we should just go with what we had. I brought Darthpyre in and he piked by Zaira Dane, so we were 5 players. I asked Bootsee to keep Irk’s aggro (+kill constructors near him), Aranorth was on laser (+killing constructors behind him + helping with dps), Lursana Rudus and Zulkis and I and and Ershar were dps and helping a bit with healing. Ershar was in US and had renewal which helped a lot, while I stayed in shiradi as I felt I wouldn’t have had enough dps without it. Since we were only 5 I changed the boss order so we started with Gish, ended with Zulkis. Completion time: 42 min, 2 s. Loot: 64 nemesis runes, 25 threads of fate, Staggershockers x2.

Thank you for stopping by.

Raids week 187

Raids 187 were Tuesday August 11 (practice run), Wednesday August 12 and Saturday August 15. I again skipped doing the Friday practice run.

Tuesday

1. Project Nemesis LN – practice run

I posted and we got some newer ppl, but most knew the raid well enough. I struggled a bit to get the group organized and the raid took longer than it usually does. But, we succeeded in the end. Loot: 64 nemesis runes, 25 threads of fate and The Wide Open Sky.

Raids week 186

Raids 186 were Tuesday August 4 and Saturday August 8. Orien server was down on Wednesday August 5 and I didn’t feel like doing the practice run on Friday night.

Tuesday

1. Project Nemesis LN – practice run

I posted for practice PN and we filled, then spent some time picking roles for ppl. For the practice run I want as many as possible doing a role they haven’t done before. I don’t remember now who did what. Loot: 64 nemesis runes, 25 threads of fate.
