I was going to write a rant post about Fall of the Truth, and stupid people. But, in the end everything turned out well, so I suspect this post will be mostly positive.
My first TR, my monk Maidae was flagged for Fall of the Truth at level 23 and I wanted to run it on hard to keep my streak. I haven’t run FoT that many times, and almost not at all before U17.1, but I have wiped in it at least twice as many times as I’ve completed it. I know what you need to complete it, I just find it hard to get competent people for it, since I always pug. I don’t want to play nice, I want people who know what to do, and make it happen. So my lfm’s say things like “know it” and “be useful”. On Thursday me and grim tried it twice, both times wipe and I was very angry with people. Why did we wipe? Because some idiot spread boom. Because tanks died. Actually, now that I think of it, I actually had 4 wipes on eH in a row on this raid. One time last Sunday, 2 times on Thursday, and then I wanted to try again on Friday. This monk who joined me, I had to ask “how do you dare to join me?” because he had been in several of the wipes. 🙂 and I saw other people there who just kept coming back.
As we were about to start the first run on Friday, my friend Deminnibler logged on, and after we wiped, I asked him for help. This run was very smooth. I put Demon on Reaver tanking, and told everyone else to stay by TO and not to go close to Reaver. Except for the other monk going a bit too close while kiting the undead dragons, this run we didn’t have boom at all, and no more than 2 deaths; me and Demon. Lol. This was an awesome run. The Stormreaver pendant dropped for Maidae and for someone else who put theirs up for roll.
Check out the quest report:
Earlier in the evening when I logged on and first posted for FoT, no one joined for 5 min, so I decided to run ADQ instead. I did like I always do, put up the lfm and start running it: pre eN, raid eH. 26 min later I had cleared all the rooms and the way up to the queen, and that’s when the first ppl hit the lfm. I waited for the 3 ppl to enter before opening the side chests, and as we were opening, 2 more joined. We waited for them to enter before killing the queen, and then ran the raid 6 man on eH without any problems. My little monk is awesome. 🙂
I don’t know if the queen counts in the total kill, but if she does, it means I killed her twice, since Chris’s and Robot’s kills didn’t change before and after the end fight.
I ran both ADQ and FoT in GMoF ED, even though I already capped it, but I find it hard letting go, lol. With the FoT completion, Maidae got 24.
Thank you for reading and have a great weekend with hopefully a lot of DDO.
P.S. Yes, I know. Quest reports aren’t that fun to look at, but I enjoy looking at them, that’s why I often post them 🙂
