Cerge is a shadarkai this life, and since I’ve liked him blond, I made him blond this life as well. I tend to collect the hair dyes that drop from chests at times, and I send them to a bank character that stores them. This time, though, I had two hair dyes in Cerge’s inventory, burgundy and scarlet, and I figured why not so I used the burgundy. I think I like it. What say you?
🙂 That’s all for this post.
Thank you for stopping by.
I’m generally not a fan of soloing, as I enjoy the company of other players.. so unless I’m multiboxing, I tend to lfm for the quests I want to do. But with the addition of reaper difficulty and the limitations of it, getting people to join my lfm has been getting harder. Getting joiners for EE was already difficult at times, but reaper has become a challenge. I don’t like waiting around too long for people to join my lfm, so most of the time I’ll pick a difficulty I can (with some difficulty) solo and hope that someone joins me in progress.
When running Precious Cargo the other day, after stepping out from I believe it was the cargo hold, I had become invisible.
I posted for R2 Tempest’s Spine as per usual at 3 pm EST. I didn’t have to wait too long for joiners, but with 4 spots left, we still din’t have anyone to do strength and intelligence. In the 9th spot our str char joined and then Niv sent me a tell asking if we needed an int char. I said yes, he joined and off we went. The party filled as we were in progress. I may have been playing a bit sloppier this time, or maybe my party was less aggressive than it usually is, but I died at least twice in ice this time. But my party was awesome as always and we didn’t really have that much issues to finish that part. Usually, in the end fight I de from Sorjek’s lightning attacks, but this time he shot me with an arrow at least twice. We finished in just under 30 min.
After capping last night, I immediately epic reincarnated Cerge (after midnight, so today). Here are his before and after pictures.
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Finally I have finished my last flagging video. Now I have a full set of YouTube videos of how to flag videos. Of course, I did things my way, I didn’t do them the fastest way possible, I did them running elite at level (most of them anyway). Check out the spreadsheet here.
As for the flagging, here’s how you flag.
The flagging for FoT is exactly the same as for The Reaver’s Fate, except for one little detail, the quest givers are different. First you have to flag for Return to Gianthold Tor by picking up, running and turning in the following quests, as well as talk to the chain giver Draznok ar’Athad:
Return to Cabal for One
Return to Madstone Crater
Return to Prison of the Planes
After this you pick up and complete Return to Gianthold Tor to flag for the raid.
I ran this flagging EE at level on my new ranger Cerge. I died twice in Cabal (stoned by one of the reds), once in Madstone (disintegrated by the end boss) and 4 times in PoP (1 time in fire room, 3 times in end fight). I used only 1 cake. Check out my videos below.
I started the recordings on April 4th and finally finished them last Monday. And now I finally have the videos appended and uploaded to YouTube. The Caught in the Web flag is I’m sure the longest flagging in the game, unless you count farming for sigil pieces in Necro 4.
To flag for Caught in the Web, you have to run the following quests:
Web of Chaos chain + Beyond the Rift (level 16 heroic normal, 21 epic normal). To flag for the Eveningstar chains you can run them heroic or epic. After you’ve run the 4 quests, you can use the rift to get to Eveningstar. I always run them heroic, so for these videos I ran them again on epic.
The Lords of Dust
Servants of the Overlord
The Spinner of Shadows
Beyond the Rift
The first time you run The web of Chaos chain + Beyond the rift, the quests have to be completed in order as each quest run flags you for the next one. The other 3 chains, the quests within the chain will flag you for the final quest, which then opens the next chain. The 3 quests within each chain can be completed in any order. To flag for the final, you have to return to Eveningstar and pick up the quest rewards.
I did the videos about 3 weeks ago, when Cerge had just hit 20. I didn’t get around to appending them and uploading them til last week.
To flag for The Lord of Blades and The Master Artificer, all you need to do is run the three quests Power Play, Blown to Bits and Schemes of the Enemy in the House Cannith Manufactury and turn them in, and you’re flagged. The quests are only available on heroic difficulty, while the raids come in heroic and epic.
Watch me flag in the video below.
That’s all for this time.
Thank you for stopping by.
I finally got to going through my Shroud flagging videos and uploaded them. This is how to flag for The Shroud.
- Head to the Tower of the Twelve and talk to Gustavine Kyerrh. He will give you the quest Finding Meridia
- Either run throught the Vale or use a level 3 guild ship navigator to get to Meridia.
- Talk to Grandmaster Aaseamah Screven to complete finding Meridia.
- Run the 5 quests out in the Vale and pick up the Shavarath stones from the end chest. Failing to collect the stone will prevent you from flagging. The quest you have to run and the stones you have to collect are:
- Running with the Devils – Shavarath Stone of Battle
- Rainbow in the Dark – Shavarath Stone of Foresight
- Ritual Sacrifice – Shavarath Stone of Might (purple)
- Let Sleeping Dust Lie – Shavarath Stone of Strategy
- The Coalescence Chamber – Shavarath Stone of Victory
- After turning in the 5 quests, talk to Valairea Satnarine to start and complete the greensteel crafting tutorial.
- Talk to Grandmaster Aaseamah Screven again to pick up the raid.
I did it. I really wasn’t sure I would be able to, but I decided to give it a try anyway.
Cerge recently hit 20 and I finished flagging for the raids where the flagging quests were in my level range. With hitting epic, I figured I was going to start doing some reaper quests. Reaper on epic means epic elite with penalties. I don’t really consider myself a person who solos EE quests. I have done a few, but I generally find it to be difficult and tedious. I much more prefer to run with a group. Reaper at level 20 (or any level for that matter), if you want to get the full benefit, you have to run quests where the level on normal is the same as yours. Which means the quest on EE will be 2 levels higher and add reaper penalties to that.
Anyway, on Sunday I posted for reaper 2 skulls for Bargain of Blood. Impatient as I am I decided to start solo, and parked a hire at the door in case I would need a raise. I managed to kill off a couple of mobs before I was over run by mobs that killed me and then my hireling. I decided that if I was going to have to solo, I would attempt 1 skull instead of 2.
I released, repaired, healed up and went back into the quest – this time on one skull. Same tactics, shoot the mobs from afar, park the hireling away from danger. Run to hireling if I needed a bigger heal, but don’t let him fight. This seemed to work pretty well with me shooting the mobs and running backwards away from danger. I even managed to keep my hireling away from trouble… until I reached the last area before the end fight. I wasn’t prepared for how hard the traps hit, ended up dying and my hire too. I caked, picked up the hire’s stone and ran him back to the shrine. I left the hire there while I killed off the last of the trash mobs before the end fight… and then I died in the trap again.
