Raids 136 were Wednesday August 14, and Saturday August 17. Here is the list.
1. Project Nemesis LH
Osi says LH is the usual so we we did LH. This run went quite a bit better than our first LH attempt. Check out the video below. Completion time: 21 min, 56 s. Loot: 84 Nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate, Ethereal Gaze, Baz’Morath, the Curator of Decay and Wildwood Wrists.
2. Too Hot to Handle LN
We’ve been talking about doing LH, but with only 3 from my guild and 1 from Soko I felt we should leave the LH try for another time. Near the end things got a bit crazy as trash was over running us but we managed to succeed. Sadly I did’t record this run. Completion time: 14 min, 59 s. Loot: 64 Forge runes, 25 Threads of Fate, Silver Dragonscale Capelet and a +7 con tome.
3. Project Nemesis LH – failure
I wanted to run the raid again, asked Osi if it was ok if I switched to Cerge so I didn’t need to buy a timer bypass. The run didn’t work out. I figured we could try to recover as long as Osiride was up, but after I failed to use the laser on Gish we realized it wasn’t going to happen.
4. Project Nemesis LN
The options were for me to switch to Thazara and retry hard, or I stay on Cerge and we do normal. It was after 11 pm for me, so I opted for just doing a quick normal. This time we completed without any bigger issues. Completion time: 14 min, 24 s. Loot: 64 Nemesis runes, 25 threads of fate, Molten Adamantine Gauntlets, The Fractured Elegance and The Family’s Blessing.
1. Project Nemesis LH
Since Osi calls LH the usual I told the party we’d do LH. Then we waited for Osi to prepare for tanking. All the Sharn raiders from my guild and 5 Sokos had logged and I invited the first two interested from EEraids channel. Epic was doing laser, I and Leo and some others on puzzles. Osi of course tanking. Completion time: 24 min, 18 s. Loot: 84 Nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate, Key of Rhukaan Draal and Gauntlet of the Iron Council.
2. Too Hot to Handle LH – failure
Knowing very well that we’d most likely fail we decided to step in on hard to practice running hard. On Hard the orange named forgewraiths are immune to insta kills – just like the reds. Epic who had done LH before was giving us some tips. Things were going quite well in my opinion up until the last phase – when you’re done with the puzzles and just have to finish the boss off. We wiped when the boss was at about 20%.
3. Too Hot to Handle LN
The plan was to do a normal run if we failed on hard, so we ran again on normal and succeeded. Completion time: 13 min, 49 s. Loot: 64 Forge runes, 25 threads of fate and The Cornerstone Champion.
4. Killing Time LH
For the raids I picked PN, THTH, KT and RSO – in that order. Before KT I asked if ppl wanted KT or RSO first, KT was picked. Since we didn’t have a second tank, we stepped in on hard. Hard isn’t really a challenge anymore, so this was a standard run. Completion time: 26 min, 33s. Loot: 84 time runes, 24 threads of fate, Nightshard (mythic 4) and 1 schism.
5. Riding the Storm Out R1
Osi stepped in on R3, but after some complaints from some party members I decided to switch to R1. The run was smooth and completed in 33 min, 40s. Loot: 125 kor kaza runes, 25 threads of fate, Cerulean Guard, Bluescale Guides (mythic 3) and Discerning Gaze.
6. The Curse of Strahd R2
Osi stepped in on R2 and no one complained this time. Some might not even have noticed. Except for some major lag on the stairs, it was a mostly smooth run. Completion time: 44 min, 2s (with some waiting). Loot: 125 thread runes, 26 threads of fate, Coat of Van Richten (mythic 2), Fleetfoot Necklace (mythic 1), Calamity, a Brush with Death, Flow, the Piercer of Hearts and Pain, the Half of Whole (mythic 2).
7. Fire on Thunder Peak R2
I let Osi picked the next raid ad he picked fotp and stepped in on R2. Torimi ran out to Dagan to flag ppl if someone joined who wasn’t flagged. She waited there until we had a full party. Osi assigned Lovekills to south dragon. R2 was noticeably harder than R1, which made the raid take a little bit longer. I died when we started lagging, other than that I felt the run was mostly smooth. Completion time: 23 min, 39s. Loot: 125 Thunderpeaks runes, 18 threads of fate, a fire phlogiston and Dragon Masque.
After fotp I was beak. Thanked the group and said goodnight.
That’s all for raids 136.
