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 does reaper eTR

I wanted to do 3 epic lives on Maidae before her next TR. Since this isn’t Maidae’s first time running the sagas, I didn’t see a point in running quests on higher than R1 (the xp gain for running higher doesn’t match the extra difficulty). Here are a couple of pictures from Sschindylryn:

Raids week 101

 

Last week Saturday I was ready to log early, but decided to wait a little and log on at 9 pm my time (3 pm EST). Tahlua and Blackzombie were on when I logged, so I invited them before posting the lfm. After the lfm went up with “R1/LE/LH depending on group” (for baba’s), the group filled in 10 minutes. Erofen sent a tell wanting to join, so we waited inside the raid while he was switching. Since we had both Titus and Stitchz in the group (tanks), I felt confident in R1. The plan was for them to dual-tank, since tanking only one shambler instead of two makes things easier for the tank. Once everyone was in we started. At first someone else had the hut, but soon it switched to me, and I spent the rest of the first baba fight pinned next to the barrier. As for inside the hut, this week I actually chose the teams. Since I at the time when I selected teams didn’t know which char Ero would bring, we ended up with three insta killers for totems (two warlocks and me), while I think the other side had one. This meant my side was slightly faster at killing things, but we didn’t really have to wait too long. Puzzles completed quickly, second baba fight also went well and the second run through we didn’t get wisps, which made things a lot easier. Or at least my side didn’t get wisps.

Maidae eTR 12

Since I didn’t want to leave it til later, here are Maidae’s before eTR 12 and after eTR 12 pictures. As you probably notice, I didn’t change her much. Maidae reincarnated before midnight, so yesterday.

Maidae eTR 11

I felt like Maidae has fallen a bit behind Cerge in past lives, and they were supposed to eTR and TR about as much. Because of this I decided I wanted to do 3 epic past lives on Maidae and then TR, while leaving Cerge at cap. This is Maidae’s 11th eTR and the past life chosen was doubleshot. Since I’m still missing past lives in the arcane sphere, the 12th life will not give me epic completionist.

I decided to equip Cloak of the Reaper (Red) just before reincarnating, since I felt it would fit her armor. I like it for her.

Bug in Prison of the Planes

In Prison of the Planes, after you place the orbs and pull the lever, you have a number of seconds to make it to the room before the door closes and the ramp goes away. After this you are supposed to talk to Thanuq’un to activate the end fight. But lately, the last 3 times I’ve run the quest, the end fight starts before you talk. The difference is, even though trash spawn and Thanuq’un move from his place, neither Thanuq’un nor the quorforged had a hit bar or were able to be damaged. After talking to Thanuq’un, his and the quorforged’s hp bars popped up and we could damage them.

The quest difficulty in the screenshot is R2, but I know I’ve run the quest at different difficulties with the same result.

Maidae eTR 10

I had planned to eTr Maidae once Cerge hit cap. Well Cerge has been capped for a couple of weeks and I figured it was time to eTR Maidae. I considered changing her looks, but then wanted her to look almost the same. I forgot to change piercings from the default look. Here are her before and after:

Raids week 84

 

Last week Saturday I was again a bit late for the raids, but not by much. People were already waiting and once the lfm went up it didn’t take long for a full party. I was told some of the party members were rather new to the raids so I decided on hard and switched from Thaz to Cerge since we were 3 divine. We were in and in progress before 9.30 pm and this week I also asked the divines to be on different sides and the rest to choose. Puzzles went quite well, I was focused on doing them myself but had help and they were being completed quickly.  I always miss implosion and mass frog when I’m not on Thaz, as then I can’t just one button kill att the crows to unlock the puzzle. During end fight I pulled aggro on one of the shamblers, but the rest of the party quickly killed off the other one, then came over to help with mine. The raid completed in 36 minutes and Gulthias Staff and Dusk, the Light Descends dropped.

Raids week 81

Last week on Saturday I was quite late for raids, because I had put an add up to sell my car, and people wanted to come look at it right away. I hadn’t expected things to happen that fast. After selling the car, and taking care of the degus, I logged on at about 10.30 pm my time. Since it was late, and most of my regulars weren’t on I didn’t feel like posting for EE/R1, but switched to Maidae and posted for baba’s hard. Interest was high and I barely got the lfm up before people started joining, even had to reserv the last spot for Gaijya. As for the run I suggested our two mass frog chars go to different sides during puzzles, other than that I told people to split up evenly. Puzzles went well and I felt like people listened this time when I said to kill wisps first. During the end fight when shamblers spawned and I wanted us to kill them, I aggro’d one of them and tanked him in a corner while the party worked on the other one. I was surprised that he didn’t do more damage to me than he did. We completed the raid in 40 minutes and got completely skunked on loot.
