Since epic gianthold came out, I have been spending at least some time there every week. I tend to hop on ee lfm’s, especially if it’s someone I know. Usually it’s been Prison of the Planes. A few days ago I gave up trying to lead FoT. It’s not that I don’t know it, or try my best to make sure everyone knows what to do, people still manage to mess up, we fail the timing and end up having to prep the Reaver over and over…. Those damn perma dots, and people without pale lavender, etc. It’s a huge mess and I’m tired. So, while complaining to a friend about it, he suggested one of the channels he’s in. Not that it’d help me with FoT, but they run other stuff, like ee Tor.
So, yesterday I had planned to run some lowbie stuff with grim, but then I was asked if I want to run ee Tor with the ppl from the new channel and some others. They call themselves “The Tor kittens”. 😛 I’ve never run ee Tor, been meaning to, so found it very hard to say no. I felt totally lost in this group. I mean, I knew 4/5 of them, and they were all pretty nice, but I felt like I was expected to do more dps. I badly need to finish my EDs and get tree. Group leader asked “Thaz can u get tree?” and I had to tell him, I don’t have it yet.
But, it was interesting if nothing else. I helped a little with dps and heals, and I tanked the black giant. Well, tanked and tanked, I shield blocked while the others kept getting thrown around. In the white room I piked and in the blue room I got dragon aggro at first and was tumbling around waiting for someone to pull him off me. Interesting bit about the blue dragon room, though. Except for the fact that I didn’t take out the air ellies, even though I was apparently expected to do that, Thaz did excellent in there. I just stood on the ground shield blocking, looking after everyone, with ellies swirling around, and I was taking close to no damage. Only as much as the aura could heal, so I never needed to heal myself and then it was over.
I pulled an ee black helm of str+8 from the back dragon chest and someone else got a int +8 blue helm from the blue one.
After Tor we did one run of ee PoP, but were skunked on loot, and apparently, after u put the orbs in downstairs, u can’t pull them out anymore, which means, don’t put them in if u still wanna do more rooms. 😀 oh, and I saw the docent drop, tried to pick it up to end the fight, but someone clicked it faster and I died. Got some lols.
I told my friend I have the ee Dream Visor and I’d trade him for an ee ring of Djinn. He didn’t have one, so I agreed to trade for 60 flawless scales. 20 blue, 20 white, 20 black. Now I can make any epic armor I want. I’m actually getting closer to having 20 red as well, Thaz had like 14 and I’m sure Maidae and Cerge have some in their bags as well.
Alright. I’ll stop babbling and get to work.
Ty for reading and have a wonderful day.
