Death watch on the Hardcore server

Season 4 of the Hardcore League opened March 31, 2021. People quickly noticed that there was something different this time around, mimics! On April 1, I thought it would be fun to make a death watch toon, just to place in harbor and see how many people were dying to these hungry mimics. Sadly the game came down for maintenance at 7 h, 40 min, so my recording didn’t make it to 8 h. But I have now uploaded the video to YT. Have a look below.

That’s all for this post.

No more raids blogs

I very often do the raids blogs on Saturday, which I had planned to do today as well. As I opened up WordPress to edit the blog I started some days ago (Raids week 217), I noticed the classic editor was gone and no where to be found. The modern and new editor does not have the option to add images from a URL, only to upload them to WordPress. Since the free storage on WP is only 3GB and my raids blogs are mostly pictures, that storage wouldn’t last long. I believe I could add the picture links in the html code, but since the new editor also adds a lot more tags than classic, that doesn’t feel like a practical solution either.

I did look at starting a new blog on a different site, but in the end the raids blogs have felt like a chore for a while and are too time consuming, so I’ve decided to stop doing them. I do plan to keep the blog and update my characters’ info and such, but will stop doing the weekly raids blogs.

That’s all for now.

Raids week 216

Raids 216 were Wednesday March 3 and Saturday March 6.

Wednesday

1. The Dryad and the Demigod LH

We started our night with an elite try of the Dryad raid, but switched to hard after the elite try failed. Completion time: 14 min, 20 s. Loot: 84 demigod runes x2, 30 threads of fate x2, Icon of the Bitterwind, Hyrsam’s Fiddle and Esper, the Shadowblade.

Raids week 215

Raids 215 were Wednesday February 24, Thursday February 25 and Saturday February 27. The new raid in Feywild, The Dryad and the Demigod was released in update 48.4 on February 24. Amored unicorns and Feytwisted items were added to the loot list the week after on Thursday March 4 with update 48.4.1. This was not mentioned in the release notes, but quickly noticed by players.

Wednesday

1. The Dryad and the Demigod LN

The Feywild raid was out with the update just a few hours earlier and we were eager to try it. In our first attempt we didn’t quite understand the mechanics and failed because the corruption on the dryad reached 100%. We went back in with a bit of tactics and completed in the second try. Completing all the optionals gives a second chest. Loot: 64 demigod runes x2, 25 threads of fate x2, Bottled Rainstorm and The Magmatic Reaver.

Thazara’s gear March 6, 2021

I spent some time farming and have updated Thazara’s gear.

After talking to one of my guildies, I know of a few more items I’d like to get, but this is what it looks like right now. The goal after the previous ER was to get her evo dc as high as possible while keeping as much spell power as possible. I’m back to swapping between a dc sceptre and a spell power one, but the difference is smaller than it used to be. Click on the picture to see the spreadsheet.

That’s all for this post.

Maidae, my inquisitive paladin

When I keep a toon at cap for a while and this toon is seen in the raids, I do like to do a post about my build and gear. This build was just intended as a past life build, but she’s been fun to play and is currently my dps toon that I bring into raids. Here’s what she looks like right now. Note, this build has good saves, decent dps, but struggles with self healing. I have been soloing up to R4 without too much trouble. My main (damage) stat is intelligence, charisma adds to all saves and wisdom to will save and spot.

Her stats, standing on the guild ship with guild buffs only:
