Raids and flagging – weekend post

Time to do another weekend post. 🙂 I was busy busy this weekend. The plan was to run raids on Thazara and Cerge on Saturday and then flag Cerge for CitW on Sunday. I decided to save VoN on Thaz, so she’s not on timer on Monday, but wanted to run ADQ and FoT.

Shroud elite (Thazara)
I logged around 8 pm on Saturday and saw a group for elite shroud up. I think they were only 5 people, and no healer. So, I decided to join on Thaz, sat there chit-chatting for a while, then spammed the channels telling ppl to come join. Didn’t take that long and we had a full party. 🙂 Group was high level with lots of dps, so we 1 rounded p4, had some deaths in p5, prolly cause I got distracted by a tell or channel or something and wasn’t healing (note, I wasn’t the only healer, we had a clonk? too).

FoT hard (Thazara)
Now I can’t remember the order of things, but I think I posted for FoT after Shroud. “eh. main/ best ed. Know it pls”. Again spamming channels. 🙂 Well, I call it spam, but I copy the same line/ word into the channels I use, e.g. “Fot?”. With U19 things have changed, but also before this it was getting harder to get good groups for FoT and CitW. The active raiders already have everything, and with U19 the raid loot isn’t even that good anymore. Anywho, I thought I had a good group, even 2 ppl who said they can do SR tank, and 2 ppl saying they can kite. So, person who wanted SR tank got to do that, and I put other guy on TO, left first person to say they can kite do that, and put our very own shuriken monk on TO kiting duty when he first drops. As we drop down things didn’t go so well, ppl were taking damage, we were not doing enough dps, and as I was doing role of trying to control the situation, I didn’t pay attention to my hp and died. Rest of the group kept things together and we got stuff done, even if it was a bit messier than I’d have liked. We take down crystal, SR tank is ready and we’re working on TO. He’s hopping around a bit, but we’re ok. I keep watching SR tank’s hp, nervously, and as expected, he goes down. Since I was ready for it, I run over and grab SR’s aggro, and tell other guy to take over. I wait for first guy’s timer to expire and raise him, and the other guy dies. So I decide to just stay and heal SR tank. Things are a bit of a mess, at some point SR runs off, and someone shoots one of the undead dragons and aggros him on the SR. We get both TO and SR prepped, and I call kill and it looks like we’re about to fail, but we manage to take SR out at the last few seconds. 🙂 I said afterwards, that that was a bit more work than I would have liked, but we got it done. Also, I said “a lot of noobish behavior in that run”. This shooting stuff that u’re not supposed to be shooting and pulling aggro is the type of behavior that will make me not let you into my runs.

Thazara and U19

Lately a couple of friends of mine have been checking my blog almost as often as I check the stats, so I figured I owe them a new blog post. 😛 What have I been up to this week? Well, I was away Friday-Saturday, so didn’t play at all those two days, and my static group on Cannith got their hearts of wood so we can TR next week. After running the Trill of the hunt ee last week, I got very interested in trying out a shadar-kai assassin, so made one on Monday, that I was goona try out in gianthold with my sister. Well, my sister hasn’t bought the gianthold pack yet, and on Monday we found out that the guest passes were bugged. She had an active pass with 30 min left, but she couldn’t enter gianthold. I sent in a ticket and got the reply “we’re aware of the issue but have no solution atm”, so it was a no go (they apparently fixed the guest passes in U19.1). My sis switched to her lvl 12 fighter and we duo’d Diplomatic Impunity elite.

9 days of gaming

So, as I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve recently had my winter vacation from work, and spent most of that time playing DDO. Yes, I know, I’m a bit of a loser, lol, but I enjoy socializing in game more than irl. 🙂 And since I was able to run earlier in the day, I got to run with Cleazy all week as well, which I usually only get to do on Saturday nights/ Sundays. So, what have I done this week and last weekend? Let’s see…

Thazara
Ran some raids; 3x CitW, 3x hard ToD, 2x eADQ, hard shroud, elite shroud (+ one noob party wipe on elite), 2x eVON, 1 Reaver’s and 1 VoD. Worked on getting epic elite favor and some from challenges, worked on levelling/ capping her current ED and did some loot farming. Picked up the Holy Symbol of Lolth when working on Thaz’s 3rd ransack of the chest, and got the Twilight from a lucky roll on the last CitW. 🙂 Thazara has capped Unyielding Sentinel, Exalted Angel, Grandmaster of Flowers and Legendary Dreadnought. She is currently leveling Shadowdancer and is at level 2. After this one she will move on to the arcane circle. Thazara has run all quests and raids in game on elite, except MA normal, LoB and CitW hard.

1 week, 4 toons; quests and raids

How about instead of writing a long boring blog about this week’s happenings, I just show u some pics? 😛 Ok, I’ll add a little bit of text just for clearification. Since I haven’t blogged all week, this is gonna be pic heavy, but I’m trying to keep it short.

Monday
Running Maidae with TorGrimorde and Andy. We did Made to Order, Dreams of Insanity, Purge of the Fallen Shrine and Chamber of Kourush. I got a pug for the first one, but got tired of the noob level, so we ran the rest with hirelings.
