I’ve been planning for farm Litany for a while, so yesterday I decided to give it a go. I ran the Litany bosses for flagging when Thaz was lvl 17, and she kept dying in the sonic trap 🙂 This time I went in solo (with a cleric hire so I could be raised if I were to die in the sonic trap), and the main part of the quest didn’t post a challenge at all 🙂 Thaz is just awesome. Aura, bursts and implosion, and banishment for mephits (mephits go down!), blade barrier and then just meleing the rest (divine favor, divine power and my new lovely scimitar and mobs go down!). So, I finished the main part with more than half of my sp left and decided to go for the hardest boss right away, Cholthulzz.
Why is he the hardest? Well because he is a f-ing tough beholder, and I’m a caster 🙂 The path to Cholthuzz was longer than I remembered, but it went fine and in we go. And what happens? (Check out the screenshot below)
Cholthuzz starts hitting me with energy drain. I look at my hp bar and see it getting smaller and smaller. I run and try to hide while I try to throw a few dp’s at him, but when I’m down to under 100 hp I dive into the water. I’m not even wearing underwater action (as far as I know), but I see no breath bar, so I just dive and try to hide. It doesn’t help. I’m down to less than 10 hp and am waiting to die, when suddenly a heal hits me. My lovely hire saved me in the nick of time. I swim to surface, get out a greater restoration scroll and heal up, only to get hit by energy drain again and again. I throw maybe 2 dp’s and then I just say to myself f* it, and run over to Cholthuzz to start meleing. I have no idea if I’m hitting him at all, but he’s moving about and I keep falling off the platform 🙂 At some point my hire dies and I’m out of bursts. And soon after I flatline. 🙂 I’m shaking like crazy, and I get a tell, “hey, you interested in a normal shroud?” 🙂 lol. I’m lying there dead, shaking from fear and excitement, and I get an invite to run shroud lol. Yeah, sure, just gimme a sec. 😀
Take care and see you around Orien.
