One of the quests in game that I think I’ve only run one time ever, is Delirium. My sister’s and my druid are currently level 17, so I decided that we should run the lvl 15 f2p quest in the Twelve. Elite of course. My druid is a winter wolf caster, she melees in winter wolf form, uses winter wolf spells, and occasional lightning and cold spells. Sometimes finger and firewall. I believe I got her +6 stat items, Wizadry VI and she’s wearing the Cove leathers lvl 12. She’s got crappy saves and her dps is so and so.
So, we decided to run this quest as a duo, elite at lvl. 2 hirelings, 2 wolves and 2 summons. This group usually does pretty well, well except that I run out of sp very quickly because of constantly using wolf spells. We enter the quest, and I realize, I have no idea what this quest is all about and what we’re supposed to do, except that there will be beholders. We go over to the table where the drinks are served and have us some drinks, then I talk to the beholders, they activate and I’m instantly disintegrated (I am wearing mabar cloak lvl 16). The shrine is near by so we run there, raise and I walk over and pull the beholders one at a time. This works nicely for the others, but not the boss. The boss stays where he is. I walk within range to use most of my spells and he disintegrates me again. Meh. My sis remembers that Sunbeam has longer range than beholder spells, so we both start casting it at the boss, with me occasionally running closer to cast something else, and down he goes.
We go and check the rooms, kill off renders and mini beholders, then head for the libarary. And boom, I’m dead, my hireling and wolf are dead, sis is dead, only one left is her hireling. I tell her to quickly tell the hireling to run… but too late, and it’s a wipe. We release one at a time, come back buffed and finish the room. On the way back we get attacked by mobs and more mobs and manage to die, but we make it to the shrine and kill the mobs off one at a time. Then over to the kitchen, where there’s a big fight and on to the basement and the puzzles. I solve the first puzzle without issues, but during the second the puzzle pieces keep flying around confusing me so I end up using wiki to finish it. We shrine and on to the end fight.
End fight is a big nasty beholder, puzzle pieces flying around and more renders. I start running around the room casting dots at the boss, while my sis works on the trash. Then suddenly everyone’s dead. Boss is at 2/3. Alright release one at a time, come back. Next try we mess up on entering the room, only my sis enters and dies, so she has to release again, as she’s locked in. 3rd try we enter all at once get back to what we were doing, and one by one we die again. Boss is now down to 1/4. Release again, enter all at once, back to out tactics and down goes the boss. Yay! Victory! But, damn that was hard. Took us over 100 minutes to finish, for a lousy 10k xp. I did recommend we rerun it on hard, though, next time that is.
Ty for reading and have a wonderful rest of the week. 🙂
