Raids week 208

Raids 208 were Wednesday January 6 and Saturday January 9.


1. Legendary Vision of Destruction LE

We started the raid night with LE VOD, with me (on Darthpyre) and Ileisiol tanking. I had a bit harder time since I didn’t have Suulo Heart for immunity to curse. Completion time: 24 min, 54 s. Loot: 125 vision runes, 30 threads of fate, Conqueror of Bone, Lamplighter, Legendary Ring of Thelis and The Fang of Xyzzy.

Cerge TR 10, Darthpyre TR 21

I finally got around to TR’ing Cerge, after capping Thazara after her eTR. I decided to TR Darthpyre at the same time, to get him alchemist past life and completionist feat (next life). I didn’t do a build plan for Darthpyre, and just picked an iconic he had – I chose bladeforged, which didn’t really work out so well. Currently my plan is to play Cerge with Hamster and pike Darthpyre along to cap, then TR Darth back to tank. I do plan to change the tank build a little. I forgot to screenshot Darth’s before picture, but here are Cerge’s before and after and Darthpyre after.

1. Legendary Vision of Destruction LH

Wednesday raids I was back on the tank for another hard practice run. This time I was a little bit better prepared and I think things went a little bit better. Completion time: 12 min, 28 s. Loot: 84 vision runes, 25 threads of fate and Vengeful Calamity.

Raids week 206

Raids 206 were Wednesday December 23 and Saturday December 26.


1. Legendary Vision of Destruction LE

Wednesday raids was elite raids. We started with elite VOD and I decided to bring Cerge (which I decided before the difficulty was chosen). This run was done with one tank and no dedicated heals. We did have a wipe and needed jibber’s to complete. Completion time: 28 min, 51 s. Loot: 125 vision runes, 30 threads of fate, Legendary Tharne’s Goggles, Legendary Gloves of the Glacier, Handwraps of the Hound and Legendary Ring of Thelis.

Current plans

I’ve been playing this game for a while, and I have had plans for most of my characters from the beginning. Some of the plans have changed along the way, some haven’t changed much. Check out my characters page for current info. Check out my reincarnation mapping for more info about my chars’ reincarnations. Here is the current list of plans:

Thazara still wants to collect all the favor from everything in game. The goal is to eventually do all the remaining raids on at least elite. I also want to get T all the epic past lives, but it’s been going slow as she’s also the main raider, the char I feel the most comfortable on running raids. She’s somewhat versatile being a light spammer healer with turn undead check maxed out with gear. Light spell power over 800 and a max evocation dc of 93 (with gear swap). Thazara is the char with the most gear swaps as I use different gear in different raids.

Maidae is supposed to be a monk, but is also collecting past lives. She’s currently on her third fighter life and will do 3x paladin next for more heal amp. Since I switched from bow to crossbow and from AA to inquisitive and shiradi, I’m really enjoying playing this char and she’s the char I play the most when not raiding. End goal is to end up as a handwraps monk again.

Cerge’s goal is still completionist. But, as I like to keep two characters capped, when Maidae is reincarnating, Cerge is running raids. Cerge is on his 9th life and 9th class, which means he has 5 classes left to go before completionist. I’m expecting this to be 6, though, as we’ve been promised a new class this year. Cerge is also doing epic lives between TRs and is currently enjoying being an inquisitive trapper. Next life I expect he’ll be a similar build, except have rogue as his main class instead of artificer.

Darthpyre 21.0

When we do the raids, we’re very dependent on a good tank, so I wanted to make one. When Darth quit the game a few years ago he let me use his characters, and a few of them have a lot of past lives. We looked through the chars and I felt this one was the best fitted to turn into a tank. I may still need to do some ED xp before he can actually tank, but here is the build plan. This is an attempt to merge Storms’ fighter tank with Jedli’s cleric build into a cleric tank. Since this is my first attempt, and I don’t even have gear for this char yet, I don’t know what the end result will be. Have a look:
