As many of you know, I love end game and I have a lot of plans for my toons. Thazara is really my only toons that’s specifically specced for end game, the others have been built for level 20, and I’ve had to adjust a bit to not completely suck at the epic levels (in my opinion). Usually when I build a toon, they do ok, or really good sometimes until they hit 20, but start to struggle at epic levels. Thazara is my baby. I made her as an elf cleric, and I’ve LR’d her 3 times now. The plan with her was to collect all favor possible and never TR.
Now, as I love end game, I love running with good ppl and learning from them. But, I don’t really like this that I’ve been told “Either you heal, or dps, or cc or you don’t contribute”. I love my Thaz, she’s multipurpose. With the last LR I made her more caster focused, and I can even kill stuff in some ee’s. But, I know her dps will never match that of a dps toon, not unless I TR or LR into something else. This I do not want to do. I really like being one of the very few shiradi clerics out there. I can still heal fine, and I will even healbot in some situations, but I don’t enjoy it. Why do I not enjoy it? Well, plainly put, because so many ppl are idiots. I’m sorry, I have been healing a lot of pugs, and it’s just very stressful for me, as I want to do good. Maybe it was different if I was doing only guild runs with ppl who actually knew what they were doing?
I do enjoy byoh runs. I don’t like waiting for a healer if I’m not on Thaz, and I build all my toons to be capable of self healing. When I’m on Thaz and it’s a byoh run, if I’m feeling kind, I may still throw some heals at ppl, and I use healing spring. But mostly I enjoy helping with dps. In high lvl quests like Storms Horns eE, my dps is pretty weak, and I need someone else to do more.
Cerge is my future completionist. Or that is the plan. But unlike most other completionists I know, I do not want to zerg to 20, TR, zerg to 20, TR. Or use XP stones to skip playing a life. I don’t mind keeping a good pace, but I want every build I make to be playable, and I want to try them out at end game. Before U19, Maidae was doing really well. Except for not being as good at self healing as Thaz, she was almost as good. Cerge, I’m not happy with. I need to level Shiradi to try him out as a Shiradi caster. And then I want to TR him into a bard, as it is the next on my list.
I feel the end game is full of ppl who rush, want to build the most OP toons possible, and ppl who cheat to get what they want. And I don’t like the attitude “either you heal or you don’t contribute”. I contribute. I might not do as much dps as the arcane shiradi or the blitzer, but I contribute. And I guess, if you don’t like my play style, you don’t have to run with me. I wonder though, if I’m really cut out for the end game? I know I’m not into running easy content, I want to challenge myself. And I love running raids with ppl who know what they’re doing. I don’t like getting angry at ppl who mess up runs because they don’t listen or don’t know what they’re doing, or are not able to do what they claim they can.
Alright, that’s all for now. Before I go I would like to share with you a pic from eVON, dead Velah, who doesn’t look dead.
Ty for reading and have a wonderful rest of the day.
