Raids 196 were Wednesday October 14 and Saturday October 17 with a run of LVOD on Monday October 12, after U47 came out.
Update 47 was out on Wednesday October 12, and I wanted to try at least one of the raids, so posted for LN VOD. I didn’t quite know what to expect and didn’t have a plan, I just tried to keep ppl alive. Completion time: 11 min, 42s. Loot: 64 vision runes, 20 threads of fate, Legendary Gloves of the Glacier and The Fang of Xyzzy.
Osi decided that we should do LE VoD and that is what we did. It was a bit difficult with one tank and we ended up needing jibber’s to complete, but only one. Completion time: 38 min, 59 s. Loot: 125 vision runes, 30 threads of fate, Spark of Dream, Dull Dagger and Legendary Lorik’s Necklace.
2. Legendary Lord of Blades LH
I misjudged how long the raids would take, so started stressing a bit about time. We continued with LLOB hard and we didn’t go for the optional chest. Completion time: 17 min, 58 s. Loot: 84 blade runes, 25 threads of fate, Legendary Magewright’s Cloak, Legendary Alchemical Shortsword and Spark of Dream.
Continuing with MA. I realised it had been 5 years since I last stepped into this raid, and I didn’t know it at all. Check out the video below. Completion time: 20 min, 2 s. Loot: 84 artificer runes, 30 threads of fate, Spark of Dream, Legendary Tinkerer’s Goggles, and Legendary Alchemical Khopesh.
4. Project Nemesis LH
Since LOB and MA were quicker than I had expected, I asked the group if they wanted to run more raids, and PN and THTH were chosen. Completion time of PN: 15 min, 46 s. Loot: 84 nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate.
5. Too Hot to Handle LN
I posted for thth and with little interest from the lfm we stepped in with 1 piker and 1 empty spot and the first attempt failed. Tried again with 1 piker and no empty spot, and this time things were a lot better. I believe in the first run I didn’t tell ppl to make sure they’re actually hitting the titan – his hit box is a bit finicky. Completion time: 9 min, 38 s. Loot: 64 forge runes, 25 threads of fate and Citadel’s Gaze.
Saturday we started with a hard LVOD. I forgot to screenshot the run but I did record it. The run took less than 13 min. Loot: 84 vision runes, 25 threads of fate, Legendary Tharne’s Goggles, Spark of Dream, Champion of the Twins and The Heart of Suulomades.
Osi wanted to do MA on elite, and I was excited to find out how hard it is. The electric floor hurt and I had to spam heals while we were doing crystals. The titans also hurt, and I stayed invised for most of it. Check out the video below. Completion time: 43 min, 20 s. Loot: 125 artificer runes x2, 35 threads of fate x2, Bound Elemental Ring of Acid, Bound Elemental Ring of Lightning and Legendary Alchemical Handaxe. Doing the optional gives a second chest which also dropps runes and threads.
3. Legendary Lord of Blades LH
I continued recording LLOB, but we ran it on hard. This time we did the “kill LoB 3 times” optional for the extra chest. Loot: 84 blades runes x2, 25 threads of fate x2, Spear of the Mournlands, Quori-Infused Core, Spark of Dream x2, Legendary Alchemical Rapier, a +7 con tome and Legendary Alchemical Battle Axe.
I switched to Jarvanna for a second run of the U47 raids and we started with LVOD. Completion time: 12 min, 17 s. Loot: 84 vision runes and 25 threads of fate.
We continued with LMA. Completion time: 16 min, 30 s. Loot: 84 artificer runes x2, 30 threads of fate x2 and Spark of Dream.
6. Legendary Lord of Blades LH
In LLOB, some of the party did the tourist route, and a couple of that group jumped off the platform to the end area, while the rest ran around. I’ll post a recording of the tourist route in a separate blog. Since we didn’t have a tank this run, we didn’t complete the optional. Loot: 84 blades runes, 25 threads of fate, a +7 con tome and Legendary Alchemical Small Shield.
7. Project Nemesis LH
I let the group vote for raids and sharn raids were chosen next. I stayed on Jarvanna. Completion time: 13 min, 34 s. loot: 84 nemesis runes, 30 threads of fate, a +7 wisdom tome and The Zarash’ak Ward.
8. Too Hot to Handle LN
I figured Tetra and I could handle sunbursting and Caellwin discos. Completion time: 12 min, 37 s. Loot: 64 forge runes, 25 threads of fate.
9. The Curse of Strahd R1
Some wanted strahd, so we continued with that one. I carried a trinket, I’m unsure who had the other and the sunsword. Completion time: 20 min, 42 s. Loot: 125 strahd runes, 26 threads of fate, Pain, the Half of Whole, Duality, The Moral Compass, Echo of The Tome of Strahd, Sentient Jewel of the Covetous and Sanctity, the Morninglord’s Keep x2.
10. Killing Time LH
That’s all for raids 196.
Thank you for stopping by.
