Raids week 131

Raids week 131 was Wednesday July 10 and Saturday July 14.

Wednesday

1. Riding the Storm Out LE

We started Wednesday raids with RSO. At first it was just me and Osi and we were deciding what I should post for. After waiting a while we decided to go short man and Osi’s alt was allowed to stay in party. This is the run where I realized that the Eye of the Storm timer controls when the multispam lightning is going to hit – it starts at exactly 10s left on the timer, and hits 6 times. Tank: Rzyman with Osi as backup. Completion time: 41 min 21 s. Loot: 125 Kor kaza runes, 25 threads of fate, Cerulean Guard, Discerning Gaze and Azure Guard x2.

Raids week 130

Raids week 130 happened July 3 and July 6. Here are the highlights.

Wednesday


1. The Mark of Death EN

Osi had joined Matrix’s THTH when I logged on, so it was just me, Leo and Azzallea. Hamster joined and after waiting about 15 min I figured we could do a quick mod while waiting for more to join (I posted for hox). I stayed center while Leo and Azz did the rooms, which was going fine until people started joining the lfm and I got distracted. I got in trouble with beholders and some time after we killed the death knights we wiped (Hamster wasn’t flagged so was sitting it out). A jibber’s was used and we completed in 11 min 6 s. Loot: 7 masterwork tapestry shreds, 8 threads of fate, 64 death runes (I think, as I forgot to screenshot them) and Epic Litany of the Dead. Leo and Azz didn’t want the Litany, I had the old version so said I could grab the new one (lower min level), which meant throwing my current one away to buy it back after putting the ml 26 in the bank (they’re exclusive).

Raids week 129

Raids 129 happened Wednesday June 26 and Saturday June 29. Here are the highlights.

Wednesday

1. Killing Time LH

Dragon tank: Osiride, Shadow kiter: Lubash, second tank (Nyt and LoB): Qif. We discussed doing elite, but with some new names in the party, I wanted to stick to hard. Some deaths, but over all a smooth run. Completion time: 31 min, 21 s. Loot: 84 time runes, 24 threads of fate, Tornado and at least 1 schims.

Raids week 128

Week 128, EEraids channel did raids on both Wednesday and Saturday. That is June 19 and June 22. Here are the headlights.

Wednesday

 

1. Temple of the Deathwyrm R1

I usually don’t want to do this raid during Sat raids, but for Wednesday raids I was ok with it. In fact, I chose this raid, while people in channel were making suggestions. I waited a bit while some flagged, and then stepped in and started doing puzzles. The faster you can complete the puzzles, the less trash you have to deal with. As we reached the shrine I locked the raid just as someone hit the lfm for the last spot.

Titus was dragon tank, Qif dropped ragers. I forgot who was supposed to do death lords, but we had 6-7 people come to shadow side, so after 2 times trying 3 phylacteries, I figured why not try all 6. Doing 6 guarantees you the right phylactery if you don’t fail the timing. The end part was fast and the raid completed in 46 minutes, 30 seconds (we slowed down as we waited before the shrine). Loot: 125 deathwyrm runes, 18 threads of fate, 1 shadow phlog each, 21 shadow scales, Dumathoin’s Bracers, Dark Diversion and a +6 upgrade tome of charisma.

Raids week 127

Raids 127 happened June 15, 2019.

1. Old Baba’s Hut R1
Horhus wanted to try tanking 1 shambler on R1, so Carlinee stayed to keep the other. We had 3 Soko Irrlicht players (+ Lubash), so I suggested Horhus and Leo go with them left, the rest with me right. I had the hut on me about half the time when the hut was active. In the hut I frogged totems and imploded lesser crows, but we had so much dps that I didn’t actually need to. End fight was close to flawless and we completed in 37 min, 49 s. Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Memory of a Tailor’s Duress, Spite, the Fractured Shards and The Invisible Cloak of Strahd.

Raids week 126

Raids 126 happened June 8, 2019. I was eager to get back to Too Hot to Handle to see if we could apply what we learned last time, but since Osi was on a TR life and not flagged for it, I decided we should do some other raids first and then do THtH.

1. Old Baba’s Hut R1

I noticed that Osi had a lot of hp even as a warlock and since warlocks have been tanking the raids before, I asked if he was planning to tank and let him pick the difficulty. Since we had 4 Soko + Lubash I asked L to pick his team, and then chose Leo to go left with them. Talelin dc’d the second time through the hut so Ice switched sides – since Osi was hurling the totems and the rest of us were mostly waiting anyway. Completion time: 38 min, 41 s. Loot: 125 Hut runes, Threads of fate, Dusk, the Light Descends x 2 and Molten Silver Gauntlets.

SPOILER Sharn The Cogs

The Cogs is a wilderness located in Sharn. All the quests here are full walkups with no quest giver. Most of the quests are also quick, one of them is a bit longer and one can be long if you decide to do it that way. There are 8 quests in the cogs and they can be completed in any order. Here are my screenshots, adding the sharn loading screen to hide the spoilers.

SPOILER Sharn first chain

I tired to grab a few screenshots while running the quests, but I don’t have a lot yet. Most of the quests I’ve only done once, some twice. Here are my screenshots from the first chain and some of the public area.

My first experience of Sharn is that the public area is very pretty. Apparently you don’t fall very far if you decide to jump off, but end up back up to. I didn’t test it out though.

Raids week 125

Raids 125 happened June 1, 2019. Since Lujaan doesn’t want to stay late, I let him pick the first raids, and we’ll do others after he leaves. He suggested Baba, KT and Too Hot to Handle. In that order.

1. Old Baba’s Hut LE
Usually we run LH if we don’t have a dedicated tank and Horhus said he can tank hard, but since we’ve completed LE without a tank before, I suggested we give it a try. Party split was left: Soko minus Minnimi, but then someone went to the wrong side so Titus joined us on the right. In the end fight we killed the shamblers and managed to do so without them doing the debuff. Completion time: 47 min, 11 seconds (we waited a bit inside for someone). Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Vestments of Ravenloft and a +8 upgrade con tome.
