Just a short one; ee Tor

Since epic gianthold came out, I have been spending at least some time there every week. I tend to hop on ee lfm’s, especially if it’s someone I know. Usually it’s been Prison of the Planes. A few days ago I gave up trying to lead FoT. It’s not that I don’t know it, or try my best to make sure everyone knows what to do, people still manage to mess up, we fail the timing and end up having to prep the Reaver over and over…. Those damn perma dots, and people without pale lavender, etc. It’s a huge mess and I’m tired. So, while complaining to a friend about it, he suggested one of the channels he’s in. Not that it’d help me with FoT, but they run other stuff, like ee Tor.

So, yesterday I had planned to run some lowbie stuff with grim, but then I was asked if I want to run ee Tor with the ppl from the new channel and some others. They call themselves “The Tor kittens”. 😛 I’ve never run ee Tor, been meaning to, so found it very hard to say no. I felt totally lost in this group. I mean, I knew 4/5 of them, and they were all pretty nice, but I felt like I was expected to do more dps. I badly need to finish my EDs and get tree. Group leader asked “Thaz can u get tree?” and I had to tell him, I don’t have it yet.

GH Tor revisited

At some point I decided I wanted the blue dragonscale robe for Thazara, and in April I was farming for it (see Dragonscales farming). I must have run it at least 10 times, and only managed to collect a few scales, the rest I traded for or was given (I was running on normal as elite was very hard). A couple of days ago I was told that the drop rate in Tor has changed, that now, if you run elite, every player pulls 2-3 scales per dragon. And that named items drop better as well. This was proven tonight as I made 14 white, 14 blue and 14 black in 5 runs. I also picked up a bunch of named items and 3 dragon blood.
