Finally a ‘solo’ completion of the Titan raid

I promised my guildies I was going to host a Titan raid. The problem was that I’ve never known the puzzles well enough to guide a party. I did a trial run a few week ago, didn’t plan the pre very well and messed up the raid. This time I had a much better plan. I ran Maidae and brought Godscraft and Zendarth with me.

I started with purple and red crystals – to get to the underwater puzzle.  The underwater puzzle requires 3 people. After finishing the puzzle, Maidae killed off the golems, and abundant stepped to the levers near the barrier. She could open the first barrier – red, before hitting a black one – a lever that must be pulled elsewhere. Godscraft and Zendarth d-doored back.

Once getting back to the head that gives purple and green, both of them throw the purple to pick up the green instead. One can only carry one per head. Zendarth then completes the green puzzle with the help of his druid dog, and pulls the lever. Gods kills of the trash to the next head and picks the blue crystal, Zendarth takes the yellow.

Maidae can now open the purple barrier, Gods opens blue and green and Zendarth the yellow. Before continuing they all loot the underwater chest.

Before getting to the raid, there is still some trash and a mindflayer to kill. The whole party needs to be on the platform with the mindflayer before starting the fight.

Then on to the raid itself. I placed Gods and darth by the machine that controls the lazer, while Maidae ran up and shot the top of the pillars. When she was done, she buffed up, hit manyshot and adrenaline and got the titan’s hps down to less than 1/3. She grabbed a crystal from the bottom floor and headed up to the machine. Before putting the crystal in, the titan had to move and the lumberjack needed to be in place. Since I’ve noticed before that the titan has a thing for godscraft, I placed him on the tile where the lazer was, to get the titan to move there. darth got to be lumberjack. When the titan was in place (had to move gods twice as the titan threw him back), Maidae put the crystal in, darth broke the bottom of the nearest pillar so it fell on the titan, and Maidae hit the button to activate the lazer. One hit was enough, and the titan’s shield went down. Maidae finished him off with her arrows.

\o/ my first ‘solo completion’.

I intend to do one more practice run before I start hosting titan raids.


LE/EE raids week 10

Week 10 of LE/EE raids was on Christmas Eve. In Finland, and I guess Sweden too, we celebrate Christmas on the eve, usually with dinner and presents. I stopped celebrating a few years ago, mostly as a protest to consumerism, and Darth isn’t really a big fan of this holiday either, so we basically just spent the day at home. I was on call for work til 4pm and did a bunch of chores before sitting down in front of the computer for LE/EE raids.

I figured it would be hard to get a group together for LE Shroud, all of my regulars were away.. so I posted for “LE Shroud. Need self-sufficient dps and a hurler. LH if poor dps”. There wasn’t a lack of interest, but after I had let a few people join who were level 26-28 (I normally only want lvl 30s.. except for the hurler that can be lower), I decided to switch to hard. I even had to turn one person down, so I suggested I would do a second run on Thaz after the run on Maidae.

Redoing Maidae’s enhancements

Maidae is a wisdom based monkcher this life, and I’ve been redoing and redoing her enhancements, trying to figure out the best way to do them. During LE/EE raids this week, I realised I had completely forgotten about the +20% doubleshot that I would have needed to have. Since Maidae’s an elf (morninglord), I had the choice of elf AA capstone, or Deepwood Stalker tier 5 enhancement. I spent a good long time last night looking at how many aps the different things would cost me. I needed 8 points in Henshin Mystic for  Contemplation. To get elf AA capstone I needed 15 points in Morninglord tree + 41 points in AA. I also wanted to take wisdom x 4, which would cost 22 ap at the least, and 2-4 points in Warpriest for Divine Might… I realised there just wasn’t enough points for everything I wanted, if I decided to go for capstone.

My other option, Deepwood Stalker would require 32 points in that tree, and meant I didn’t need to put points in Morninglord at all, which saved a total of 23 ap, and I even managed to get a bit more dodge and prr. I am looking forward to give Maidae another try in LE Shroud next week.

LE/EE raids week 9

I epic reincarnated Thaz a week ago, and I didn’t have enough time to get her back to 30 before LE/EE raids this week. So, I decided to run Maidae instead. I logged on half an hour early to redo her enhancements, posted for the raid at 4 minutes to 9pm (3pm EST).. and then waited about an hour before I had a full party. During p1 I realised that 1. we didn’t have enough dps for LE and 2. I messed up my enhancements since I forgot to take Contemplation for ki regen.. which meant that I could only use 10k stars once. Half way through part 1 we started struggling real bad, so I called a restart. I needed to fix my enhancements.

Putting the post back up, and losing some people who didn’t have time for a retry, I switched the lfm to hard instead. We ended up going 9 man on hard, as there really wasn’t a whole lot of interest in this run today. The run was pretty standard without too much issues.

Thaz eTR 8

After yesterday’s LE Shroud, I started thinking about how to get more PRR on Thaz… and I realised that each divine epic past life gives a passive +3 PRR. So.. I decided to eTR to get more PRR. Here’s the before and after of Thaz’s 8th eTR.

Usually I don’t like to have a different background, but I had already logged off and didn’t want to log back in… so there they are.

That’s all for this time.

Dualboxing TR

As I was xping one of my characters the other week, Short told told me to dual box for TP. I didn’t that tine, but as I TR’d Firetha, it hit me that I could create a leveling buddy for her on one of my alt-accounts.. earn some TP for that account and make leveling the wizard easier. So, I made “Smashbaby Trapfinder”, a barbarian. 🙂 So far I’ve been enjoying this character a lot.

That’s all folks.
Thank you for stopping by.

LE/EE raids week 8

I was very tired this week when it was time to host shroud.. but I wanted to do it anyway. Within 15 minutes we were a party of 10.. it took a good 20 minutes more before we managed to fill. I ate a festival candy that gives +5 prr before we started, and I managed to stay alive all through part 1, for the first time. But as we got to part 2 we started struggling, and then one of the reds died… So, after a long struggle, we realised it wasn’t going to happen, so I called forfeit.

LE/EE raids week 7

I logged on at 9pm GMT+1 or 3pm EST on Thazara and put my LE Shroud lfm up. Within 20 minutes I had filled all but one spot, but I didn’t have a hurler, and I had to decide who to accept for the last spot. I decided to give Werehamster’s mech a spot and switched myself to Darth’s warlock for hurl, as Durk had joined the party on his cleric. As you know, I’m not that familiar with the warlock, and I mainly run around hurling mobs during p1. It might have been because I forgot to repair his gear before the run, or it might have been that I was stressed about the recording, but I was playing sloppy and died more than I would have liked. It was a good run non the less and we finished in 54 minutes.

Firetha TR 4

The last TR I did on Firetha happened October 6, 2015. It took me over a year to get her to 20, mainly because I don’t really like running heroics, especially not the low level ones, and I would only play her when I only had time for one quest or so.

She finally hit 20 two days ago and yesterday I spent my game time cleaning her TR bank. Today I TR’d. I will be doing exactly the same build as last time, for her 3rd wizard past life. Here are her before and after pictures:
