Mostly just doing the new raid

So… Darth moved in 2 weeks ago, and this week I’m back at work after my vacation. On top of it I haven’t been feeling great, so I haven’t been playing ddo as much as I usually do. But non the less, I’ve managed to get some runs in on the new raid, and all have been successful… we lost a few archons in a few of the runs, but the last few runs have been quite good.

Except for… two days ago as we were getting ready to start the end fight, suddenly the whole party froze. Asking in Titan chat I learned that Orchard was frozen as well. I didn’t expect it to do any good, but I decided to send in a ticket anyway. My ticket said “whole party frozen in Defiler of the Just”. About 20 minutes later (I just did not want to leave when we were this close to a completion), I was contacted by a moose, and at the same time the party unfroze.

Yesterday I didn’t get a chance to raid, as I didn’t log on til around 10.30pm, but today we did 3 more runs. Here are a couple of more screenies.

The end boss in Defiler of the Just

On Monday, as the end boss was dying she suddenly exploded and killed almost everyone. Lucky for us there is a raise shrine right there when you complete. 🙂

I have pulled a few items during the runs, Thaz got the goggles, Cerge has braziers and the longsword. I wish to do 20 runs on Thaz, Cerge and Firetha before I eTR or TR them, then I also need to run the raid on Maidae who is currently in the middle of an eTR.

Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day

P.S. I should prolly do a proper blog about the raid soon, as well as a video, but I’m tired right now so will have to get to that later.


Reaper difficulty?

A month or so ago I was reading the vault, and they were speculating about a new difficulty mentioned on Lamannia called Reaper. I had forgotten about it, until I saw it in the quest report from my Sat raids.

What is this Reaper difficulty? Is it something they’re planning to add?

Thaz does the new raid

I’ve been waiting to run the new content.. on Friday I finally got Thaz flagged, and on Saturday I did the first run of the new raid. On Sunday I flagged Cerge solo, and then convinced Cleazy to run another flagging run on EE for Maidae and Darth. Then we did more runs. I think Cleazy did maybe 3, and then Gray took over and did 2-3. I got 6 completions total anyway, and in my 3rd run I got the goggles. Cleazy pulled them and put them up for roll and I got the highest roll. We were doing eN runs.

Thaz does Defiler of the Just. Is that a dead archon?

When Gray got tired of running the raid, I switched to Firetha to flag her as well. Had some nice eH runs of the quests. So far I am enjoying them.. but I guess it will get old semi quick. I am hoping for some nice loot, though.

That’s all folks 🙂

Maidae eTR 5

I was going to eTR Maidae while I was in Croatia, but I never got enough time to do it, so I finally did it on Friday (August 14). I’m doing exactly the same build as found on my build plans so nothing special about that. This time I also remembered to check that I was in the correct ED before picking up my sagas. I did change her looks a bit, though, and I actually like her better this way.

EEraids 23

Finally, after 4 weeks of no sat raids for me, I was ready to host another one. I posted for Deathwyrm at 8pm my time as usually, and it was very slow at first. Then slowly ppl started joining and it wasn’t before too long that I had a full party. I don’t remember now if I waited to fill before starting, but I know I didn’t wait for everyone to get  to the raid. Anyway, the group was pretty good and we got maze and tower. The funny about the maze/ archives is that even though I explain how to do it, ppl get lost. I asked if ppl have d-door and know how to do the maze.. but even though ppl had d-door, they didn’t want to or knew how to do it so I just said “ok, ppl with d-door, follow me”. I picked right portal 6 times, and didn’t even need the d-door. Since I’m right handed, I tend to prefer going right, lol. It doesn’t really matter.

The raid party this week

Someone dc’d, someone got left behind and someone was piking, but we progressed at a good speed, and the only bad lag we had was in the bone guardian room. When the trash spawned, we started lagging badly. Or I was anyway. Yet, I don’t think anyone died, and we managed to kill the guardian in the first try. Coming to the end fight, I took the dragon and I told Emmilie to lead the shadow side. He asked me if we should do one or two at a time, and I said he can do what ever since he’s in charge. I was just sitting on the dragon… well most of the time I was hanging on the wall on the other side.

We had some deaths, and with the change to the xp bonus for deaths, the quest report no longer shows how who died and how many times. This is a big negative for me, because looking at the quest report I could see how squishy some ppl were. Now I can not. We finished in 57 min.

Well, it’s vacation

It’s my last night in Croatia for this time and I wanted to do short blog. I’ve been here for close to 2 weeks, some of it in the east, some of it in the west by the sea. I went to spend time with Darth in his home country before he’s moving to Sweden. In a few days we’ll be common law spouses, so yay!

Thaz & Darth in Zadar. We went for a beer before going to see a movie.

The trip has been fine… in Sweden it was around 19C when I left, and in Croatia it’s been 30+ so quite a big difference. I’ve been trying to get a tan for the winter, lol. With Darth’s move and such, it will be a bit longer before I can get back to the raids and stuff but have no fear.. I will. 🙂

Over here I haven’t had much of an internet connection, so I haven’t been able to play ddo (except to log on a couple of times mostly to say hi to the guildies), so I am also looking forward to getting back home and back on stationary, lol. I also haven’t had a chance to check out U27, so that is another thing I’l looking forward to.

Last night, tried to take a selfie of us… but it didn’t work out so well, lol.

Anyway, that’s my short update. I hope to see you all in game see.
