Maidae TR 6

Maidae TR’d yesterday and here are her before and after pictures. I wanted her to look a little bit different than what she’s looked like in her previous life as a monk. My characters, though, have their own cosmetic armor that I like to use. Maidae has two, but this one is my latest favorite for her.

13 monk/ 6 ranger/ 1 cleric/ 10 epic sun elf                  7 ranger/ 5 fighter/ 1 cleric sun elf

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


Maidae 7.0 take 2

Hamster pointed out that some things in Maidae 7.0 didn’t make sense, so I looked at his suggestions and made some changes. For example, in this build below she’s now dex-focused. The enhancements are just a first draft and may change.

What they looked like on TR – Maidae

Maidae has done 5 TRs and 12 ERs in the 7 years since she was born (Feb 1, 2012). In between she’s stayed at cap running epics and raids. Here are the “what she looked like when she TR’d” blog pictures I could find on the blog:

TR 1 (Nov 12, 2012): I didn’t take a before picture when Maidae did her first TR, but this was her character picture on the blog at the time. Maidae as a half-elf monk, level 20.

Maidae 7.0

This post and plan is quite early in the makings, since I’d still like to do a few epic reincarnations on Maidae before doing a TR. Anyway, Maidae will after the next TR have 3 monk past lives, but only 2 fighter, so for the next life I’d like a fighter past life. I do love monk splits, but I’ve liked her archer life a lot as well, so I wanted to try making an archer fighter (especially since I’ve seen it done). Sticking to iconic, I squeezed in 2 cleric levels – 1 from morninglord, taking a second to get a domain.

Here’s the first draft of my kensei AA fighter. I will most likely have to play around with the enhancements once I’ve actually made the build.

Maidae eTR 8

In a hurry to get some eTrs done before U29… I finished Maidae’s eTR 7 and went on to eTr 8. Here are the before and after pictures:

That was my quick update for today.

Maidae eTR 7

Yesterday I finally capped Maidae, and I had decided I was going to eTR right away. Here are the before and after picture:

I like her new looks, she looks kind of badass. 😀

That’s all folks tc.

GM interaction

Last time I was running Maidae was about 2 weeks ago, I was running EE High Road with Osi and some others. In A Stay at the Inn we were progressing the quest as usually, we got to the end fight, fought the boss… and when it was time for him to spawn the red named shadow.. he didn’t. I sent in a ticket, we waited about 15 min with no response, so we decided to give up. I closed the ticket.

Today I had decided to finish my sagas, so I put up an lfm, invited two guildies and headed back to the high road. We started with Rest Stop and then continued with A stay at the Inn. Progressed the quest without issues, fought the boss, heard the DM said that the boss spawns the shadow.. and then nothing. I sent in another ticket, only to realise it’s too early in the morning in the US. Support hasn’t started working yet. Closed the ticket and restarted the quest. The problem? Next time we got to the end fight, the same thing happened, we got the message that the boss is spawning the shadow, and then nothing. We decided to skip the quest and continue on with the next quest. I also decided to send in a ticket about the issue.

After we finished The end of the Road, I wanted to do EE GH, and Hamster joined my group. He claimed he had finished  A stay at the Inn EE just the other day, and to prove it he solo’d it and got the shadow to spawn. Me, Jedli and Urgan stepped in to get our completion.

5 hours later a GM got in touch with me concerning my ticket. He offered to finish the quest for me, but as I had already continued on (and Hamster got me my completion), I didn’t need it. But, I was happy my ticket wasn’t auto closed, but the GM actually took the time to talk to me. Here is the convo:

The experience potions he sent me were medium +10% BTA potions, so they are really useless to me, but anyway…

Maidae eTR 6

On Friday (Oct 9) I eTR’d Maidae. Here are her before and after pics

EEraids 27

This Saturday was the first time I actually considered not doing the EE raids for lack of interest. I posted at 8 as normally, and then went afk a bit to get some food. I got back and still no joiners.. so I decided to log on Mill’s account to flag him for doj, only to realise he doesn’t own the pack so I can’t do that. Instead I logged him off and hopped into The Devil’s Details eH. I was almost at the end when I suddenly got a bunch of joiners. It would seem that the ppl from OR had finished what ever it was that they were doing when I posted, and were up for an EE Deathwyrm. Weii, Arriene and Khyleeh joined for the completion of the quest I was running, but we did not get any named item in the chest. After this it didn’t take too long before I had a full group, but I had a few joiners who did not know the raid too well at all.

My rules are as always; 1. help with the puzzles if you know them, but don’t turn on the beam until you’re done and call beam when you do. 2. kill trash at each level before stepping through the portals to reduce lag and 3. run away from your stone if you die. I also told the newish ppl to try not to get lost, and to kill stuff. And to say asap if they do get lost and someone will come get them. What I can’t stand is if someone can’t do the jump or otherwise gets lost and decides to spend the rest of the raid trying to get to us. EE is not where we practice the raid, EE is where we run it efficiently and want everyone to keep up.

Maidae eTR 5

I was going to eTR Maidae while I was in Croatia, but I never got enough time to do it, so I finally did it on Friday (August 14). I’m doing exactly the same build as found on my build plans so nothing special about that. This time I also remembered to check that I was in the correct ED before picking up my sagas. I did change her looks a bit, though, and I actually like her better this way.
