2015 in review

🙂 as you all know I like stats and numbers. WordPress just sent me the link to the annual report for 2015. Below is the automated blog post from WordPress. Enjoy.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

And if anyone is interested… here is the annual report for 2014.


P.S. EEraids was up and running last Saturday and the blog post is still to come.


Maidae TR 5

I finally managed to cap and TR Maidae yesterday. The plan was to do one more eTR and then TR before they released U29, but time ran out, U29 came, and I had to get to level 30 to TR. It was a good thing, though, that I was a bit busy and they managed to get a hotfix in before I tried to TR. Here are Maidae’s before and after:

12 fighter/8 monk/ 10 epic                                    8 monk/ 6 ranger/ 1 cleric

I still need to gear her and do her quickbars before I’m ready to start questing.

That’s all folks. Thank you for stopping by, and happy holidays.

EEraids 33

I’ve been away several Saturdays this fall/ winter, so I’ve skipped a lot of raid nights. But last Saturday (Dec 12) it was time for raids again. I put the lfm up a bit before 8.. and didn’t get any joiners, so I logged on a dual account to finish flagging them for doj. But before I had a chance to get very far, I had 4 others in the group, so had to boot the other account.

It didn’t take long before we had a full group and got going. But already at the second puzzle we started lagging and I called a restart. Second try was a bit better. Due to the restart, the party was much more together, and we did the trapped room. This path has changed since the last time I remember doing it. It used to have re-spawning mobs, now there were no mobs at all, just high dc traps. I think the guys who were trapping said you needed at least 102 for a success. For the second selection we ended up doing red light – green light. It was a lot less painful that some of the runs have been. Of course there were a lot of deaths, but no near wipe.

Cerge and the dracolich

For the end fight I wanted the party to drop the ragers, as we usually do. The problem, no one in the party had that much experience in it, so there was a bunch of trial and error before they got it done. But once they did, the raid progressed quite smoothly. The shadow side only needed 2-3 tries before they found the real phylactery and soon after we finished. My quest reports shows 72 min, but this is because the screenshot has been taken after everything was looted. The actual completion time was 69 min 4 s.

Reincarnation mapping

Here’s something little I’ve been working on. As some of you know, I enjoy looking at the history of my toons, and remembering what I’ve done. I also keep dates and screenshots in my blog through blog posts. Now I’ve made a spreadsheet of all the reincarnations my characters have done. I have made the spreadsheet publicly viewable, click on the image below to open the sheet in a new tab.

🙂 that’s all folks. Thank you for stopping by. And have a great day.

The missing blog; Cerge eTR 4

I started mapping my toons reincarnations and I could not find a blog about Cerge’s 4th eTR. I was looking through my blogs, and I knew he had 5 epic past lives: 1 x colors of the queen, 2 x power over life and death and 2 x double strike. I knew he took colors of the queen when he TR’d into barcher, first power over life and death when he TR’d into fvs and the other during fvs life. I knew his 5th eTR was during his cleric life.. and I thought his 4th was too, but I could just not find any documentation.

But then I remembered… I usually take a few screenshots during eTR, if not the before and after, I take pics of the xp received from picking up sagas. I found his before and after picture in the pic library. He eTRd January 31, 2015. Here are his before and after pics.

🙂 that’s all folks. I just wanted to add Cerge’s 4th eTR to the blog

Maidae 6.0

It has been a good long while since I TR’d Maidae. Over a year to be exact. I did a total of 6 eTRs on this build, though, and now I feel like it’s time to change build. I have enjoyed this one a lot, and may very well return to it at a later point.

For Maidae’s 6th life I would like to do a bow build. Short helped me out a little, and here is my current plan. I will probably adjust the enhancements a bit. ED feats are not quite decided yet.

Thaz eTR 6

After keeping Thaz at cap for a number of weeks, I decided to eTR her yesterday. This was her 6th eTR. As I don’t really change Thaz’s looks much, before and after feels unnecessary. Here is the after anyway.

Thank you for stopping by, tc.
