Cerge ran his first (hard) Shroud tonight, in his new docent, Quorforged Docent of Battle.
And on his end reward list he had not one tome, but two!

I haven’t quite wanted to run shrouds were the majority of the party is 25, but decided to join one this time. Figured they would be less dependent on Cerge’s skills. This group wanted to run fast, and I wish they would have said it in the lfm. Lucky for me, Cerge’s got the buffs he needs, so he isn’t dependent on anyone, but I can imagine some others having a bit of a hard time with it. No saving a devil in phase 4, no parking the ellie in phase 5, minimal buffing and no waiting. Cerge did very well, though, he only took damage from the blades in phase 3, other than that he didn’t have any problems (except doing damage to the portals in phase 1 that seem to be immune to both ice and acid). Cerge got 3 large mats and a shard of power from it, and a +3 str tome!
I ran Maidae’s first shroud on Monday, but a normal one that I lead. Pace and run was very different. Maidae needs better wraps for fighting Harry, though, my crafted +3 holy handwraps of lesser vampirism + arti silver weren’t doing enough damage, imo.
I also led an elite shroud on Thazara on Tuesday, after an elite Titan raid. Thazara’s now got 17 shroud completions, 5 normal, 7 hard and 4 elite. 3 more for the cleansing stone. She also just got flagged for ToD and got her Boots of Anchoring, so soon she’ll start running that as well. 🙂 Thazara’s now flagged for all the raids, except the MotU one.
Alright, that’s all folks.
Happy questing and take care.
