Raids 139 were Wednesday September 4, and Saturday September 7. Here’s the recap.
1. The Mark of Death EH
Osi wants the ring from MoD so I suggested we start the Wednesday runs with MoD. Like expected, we didn’t get many joiners, so Osi brought in a couple of pikers and we short manned EH. The run was quick and mostly easy. The ring didn’t drop, but we got 84 death runes and 11 threads of fate.
2. Project Nemesis LH
Raids were going slow and it took us half an hour to get started. I was on laser, I failed to get irk on the first try as the laser was in the wrong position. Completion time: 31 min, 34 s (with some waiting inside). Loot: 84 nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate, The Zarash’ak Ward, The Eclipse Itself, The Hallowed Splinters, Stickerclick, the Bitter Hail of Bolts and Attunement’s Gaze.
3. Too Hot to Handle LN
Looking at the party I was the only sunburster or caster so I posted for one for the last spot. Quilo joined. The run went a bit crazy near the end but we managed to kill the titan with brute force and the trash went away. Completion time: 18 min, 59 s. Loot: 64 forge runes, 25 threads of fate, Stolen Signet of ir’Wynarn, a +7 wisdom tome and a +7 dexterity tome.
1. Project Nemesis LH
When I logged on Saturday I joined raid-1 on Orien Raiding Discord before posting for raids. My voice chat kept disconnecting, and I was quite distracted while I posted for raids until we got it sorted. I felt like raids were still a bit slow, but we filled faster than Wednesday. Komrad was on laser, Osi main tank and Cruax second tank. Completion time: 23 min, 12 s. Loot: 84 nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate, no named items at all.
2. Too Hot to Handle LN
Since I and Quilo did the sunbursting on Wednesday, I figured we would have an easier time this time around since we also had Volo on runners. Turns out we were low on dps, casters ran out of sp and when we got to the last part we could no longer control the trash and it was a wipe. Retry and this time I told the party to focus all their dps on the boss. It got a bit messy this time around as well, but we pushed though and completed. Completion time: 17 min, 6 s. Loot: 64 forge runes, 25 threads of fate and Crystalline Gauntlets.
3. Killing Time LE
I said we should do Killing Time, with Erofen bringing his tank we decided to do LE. I was feeling pretty tired and wasn’t fully focused. Erofen tanked the dragon, Osi took shadows and LoB and Tahlua got Nyt again. Completion time: 51 min, 53 s. Loot: 125 time runes, 28 threads of fate, Mail of the Mroranon, Cloak of the Mountain and a schism.
4. The Mark of Death R1
I was getting ready to call it, so I suggested we finish with MoD. I posted, Osi brought in two pikers, but then suddenly we had a few more interested and he dropped one. Since we had a full party I suggested we do R1. The run was quick without much issues, except half the party seemed to blow up a couple of times, the second after completion. Loot: 125 death runes, 13 threads of fate, Shroud of Ardent, Epic Deific Diadem and Epic Noxious Embers.
5. Defiler of the Just EE
I opened a beer when we started MoD, so I didn’t feel like quitting quite yet. I switched to Thazmaniac when Defiler was decided. Osi stepped in on EE. Thazmaniac is still not fully ED capped so I picked a lvl 5 ED that was almost capped. I was still kind of squishy and I’m sure I didn’t fully contribute as much as the others. Completion time: 19 min, 8 s. Loot: 125 defiler runes, 14 threads of fate and Fellblade (longsword).
That’s all for raids 139.
Thank you for stopping by.
