Cerge eTR 17

On Tuesday, after completing What Goes Up for saga, I eTR’d Cerge and Darthpyre, both getting the Brace PL. Here are Cerge’s before and after picture, before to the left and after to the right. To see what he looked like without the mask, have a look at Cerge eTR 16.

That’s all for this post.

Raids week 216

Raids 216 were Wednesday March 3 and Saturday March 6.

Wednesday

1. The Dryad and the Demigod LH

We started our night with an elite try of the Dryad raid, but switched to hard after the elite try failed. Completion time: 14 min, 20 s. Loot: 84 demigod runes x2, 30 threads of fate x2, Icon of the Bitterwind, Hyrsam’s Fiddle and Esper, the Shadowblade.

Raids week 215

Raids 215 were Wednesday February 24, Thursday February 25 and Saturday February 27. The new raid in Feywild, The Dryad and the Demigod was released in update 48.4 on February 24. Amored unicorns and Feytwisted items were added to the loot list the week after on Thursday March 4 with update 48.4.1. This was not mentioned in the release notes, but quickly noticed by players.

Wednesday

1. The Dryad and the Demigod LN

The Feywild raid was out with the update just a few hours earlier and we were eager to try it. In our first attempt we didn’t quite understand the mechanics and failed because the corruption on the dryad reached 100%. We went back in with a bit of tactics and completed in the second try. Completing all the optionals gives a second chest. Loot: 64 demigod runes x2, 25 threads of fate x2, Bottled Rainstorm and The Magmatic Reaver.

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.

Cerge 11.0

Cerge has done 3 eTRs this life as a rogue and has finally gotten epic completionist. Normally I switch between Maidae and Cerge – TR one while leaving the other at cap, but now I want to keep Maidae at cap and TR Cerge again. For Cerge’s 11th life, I want to do a centered kensei monk with axe as main weapon. Here is the first draft of the build. Note, I don’t like doing enhancements in this planner, enhancements will be posted once I’ve done them on live.

This plan was made with the light planner, see: Character Builder Lite

The solo raids project – update

Solo raids is a project I started a little over 3 years ago, when Maidae was a monkcher. I believe the idea came to be when I decided to try soloing The Fall of Truth. Here’s the list of raids I’ve done so far and the date when I uploaded the video.

Epic Normal (level 25) The Fall of Truth May 22, 2016

Epic Elite (level 24) Against the Demon Queen (pre raid quest) May 22, 2016

Epic Elite (level 24) Zawabi’s Revenge May 22, 2016

Elite (level 22) Tower of Despair Jun 5, 2016

Epic Elite (level 23) The Chronoscope Jun 24, 2016

Elite (level 19) The Shroud Jul 15, 2016

Elite (level 12) Tempest’s spine Aug 31, 2016

Legendary Normal (level 32) Tempest’s Spine Aug 31, 2016
– in this one I cheated and used an alt for int rune

Elite (level 16) The Reaver’s Fate Dec 30, 2016

Elite (level 13) The Titan Awakes and The The Twilight Forge Jan 28, 2017
– I cheated and used two alts

Epic Normal (level 24) Caught in the Web Apr 23, 2017

Elite (level 20) Hound of Xoriat Nov 4, 2019

Elite (level 20) A Vision of Destruction Nov 4, 2019

Epic Normal (level 30) Defiler of the Just Nov 5, 2019

I love running raids and while leading raids and figuring out how to get parties through is it’s own challenge, having to do the same thing solo is a different kind of challenge. When you’re running a raid solo, if you die it’s usually over. So staying alive is key – as well as being able to complete all the objectives solo.

Here’s to more solo raids.

Maidae and the tree

As we were getting ready to run Lines of Supply last week I decided I wanted to try and stand on the fir-tree outside the quest. The party entered and started, while I was determined to get a screenshot on top of the tree before entering. I succeeded and then ran after the party.

That’s all for this post.

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.
