Maidae’s 6th TR, running reaper

This TR Maidae is running everything or reaper difficulty with Mis, and when we got to level 18 I wanted to flag for both Cannith raids and ToD. I usually also post on the lfm. Here are some pictures from the quests. Last night we also ran the Tide Turns in the Denith chain.

Static group meets Sinvala

My static group has increased it’s playtime and is now playing once a week. I’m mainly playing Judet with Jarvanna piking, but Jarvanna joins when the rest of the party has died. Last week we did Mired in Kobolds and decided to give fighting Sinvala a try on R2! Here are a couple of screenshots. And yes, we completed the optional fight. 🙂

That’s all for this post.
Thank you for stopping by.

Running against the clock

Last week when Hamster and Maidae were running Storms Horns, just as we were about to do A break in the Ice, a world notification popped up. Apparently the servers were to go down for a restart. Hamster looked at the forums and discord, I checked twitter, but we couldn’t find any other information about it. We decided to try and run the quest anyway, hoping that we either finish or that the warning was false.

Maidae doing reaper 2

It’s been a while since I epic reincarnated Maidae, and due to the release of Ravenloft Maidae’s leveling has been going slow. I added a sentient gem to pinion and a few filigrees (still haven’t found all that I wanted to add) and I feel Maidae has been doing quite well since. This week Hamster and Maidae started running Wheloon on R2, at level 26. I screenshotted the quest report from Friends in low places as I was surprised at Maidae keeping up in kill-count with Hamster.

Jarvanna & Schoan do EEs

While working on our EDs, Schoan, Valdayanie and Jarvanna have been doing some EEs that we’ve never done before (on those characters). Last Sunday Valdayanie couldn’t make it, so Schoan and Jarvanna did Madstone and Cry for help as a duo. On the dps side we were doing, good, but surviving against the giant skeletons turned out to be a challenge. More than once my piker Evilynnn had to rescue us, but throwing raises from a safe distance.

Maidae does reaper

It’s been a while since I eTR’d Maidae, and she’s mostly been neglected while I’ve been doing the Ravenloft quests. The last few weeks she has been getting some playtime, though, and last night I added the first filigrees to her weapon, Pinion. This week I was doing Gianthold on reaper 2 with Hamster. See some of the screenshots below.

I found a nice perch spot in Foundation, after a bunch of deaths

Epic crucible on reaper 2

For you who don’t follow me on twitter or youtube, here’s a short post about the crucible run we did. I eTR’d Thaz some time back, and I’ve been running epic sagas on reaper 2 with Misanthropic, as he’s an instakiller build and it’s been making getting some reaper xp so much easier for me (and of course, I enjoy the company). I post on the lfm as well, and interest has varied. For gianthold, though, we’ve been getting a full party. A few days ago I wanted to do the crucible, and record the run. I wasn’t sure we’d be able to do reaper 2, but as it turns out my worry was in vain.

Epic Lost in the Swamp reaper 2

A week ago I posted a blog about soloing Detour on reaper 2. That time I had an lfm up, and just didn’t get any joiners. The next quest in the chain that I usually run is Lost in the Swamp, and that one I consider to be the easiest of them all. I’ve almost solo’d it on reaper 1 before (I got my only joiner just as I was killing the boss), but I don’t believe I’ve even run it on r2 before.  I decided to try r2 and record it while doing so.

My first attempt was bleh. I struggled with the wolves, struggled to keep my hire out of harm’s way.. and attempted to use the shrine as a safe spot which did not work. Giving up on the run, I decided to look for a proper safe spot before trying again. Second try I placed the hire in my newly found safe spot, and then activated the first wave of wolves. I tried using the safe spot, but realising it was more of a hassle than benefit, I skipped using it and just stayed on top of the little roof in the second room. After a bunch of kiting back and forth I finally got rid of all the wolves so I could continue.

Taking out the druids wasn’t an issue and the few vine horrors that popped up wasn’t an issue either. I got to the roots that block your path and I just couldn’t understand why I couldn’t break them. I had killed everything up until that point. Running back and forth, moving my hire to the roots and still nothing, I decided to turn off the recording, as I was about to give up. Running around some more, I happened to activate the optional “Free the three lost spirits”, and suddenly a bunch of vine horrors popped up as well as a champion wood woad. Killing off all the trash the roots became breakable, and I started the recording again.

The rest of the quest was a lot easier than I expected. The vine horrors move quite slowly, so I was able to range them without an issue. The earth elementals were also easy to kite, as they could only really harm me if they manage to hit me with their firsts. The earth elementals were a pain mostly because I didn’t have the right arrows or weapon for them, so I was seeing a lot of yellow numbers and killing them was slow. When it came to killing the medusa, it proved a lot easier than any previous run I’ve done. Her flesh to stone range is rather short, so as an archer I could easily keep out of her casting range. The only thing she was able to attack me with was her arrows. I finished this quest in 73 min, with zero deaths. Yay me. 🙂

The Battle for Eveningstar reaper

 

The other day I wanted to do a reaper 1 Battle for Eveningstar at level, meaning max level 21. I posted and left the lfm up while I started. I have done this quest EE at level before, but never attempted to solo reaper. I spent most of the time jumping on roofs, trying not to die from the casters, which failed a few times. Luckily my deaths were close enough to a shrine that I didn’t need to use a cake. I parked Albus as a fail safe and at a couple of times parked him near me on a roof so he’d throw me heals, but he turned out to be completely useless for this. Parked he didn’t heal me and he didn’t heal himself either, so he ended up dying. For the end fight I just left him at the shrine.

The quest took me a while as I was clearing most of the trash, but things progressed better than I had expected. I even managed to take out the priestesses without them healing more than once of twice. As for the end fight, it took me a while and when the driers spawned I had to stop attacking the boss to take care of them, but I managed to do this without taking too much damage. I finished the quest in 53 minutes solo, as no one had joined. Hamster offered to join to help me out, but I was at that time more than half-way through the end fight, so told him I was almost done.
