Last night we decided to attempt the Shroud. With just the four guildies that were still online.
Let me start by saying that I don’t think that we are uber or elite, and EvenNote’s excellent post yesterday really covers why some of us don’t tend to pug or raid a lot. We tend to keep to ourselves, have fun, work out how to run missions, epics etc with what we have.
But, with running the new expansion pack over the last week, we’ve hit level 23 with our main characters and we just thought it would be fun to see how far we could get on a Shroud (normal – obviously!)
So, we stepped in with Hymm (light monk), Antaka (light monk), Willowing (rogue) & Korvisa (ranger). Yep, no cleric. Which is why we didn’t make it past round 4 🙂
After we died part way through round 4, we decided to try again, but with Willowing swapping out for battle cleric Nightley. And Nightley has come across criticism before in the Shroud, someone blaming a party wipe on the fact that there were two battle clerics doing the healing. Pppttff… load of rubbish if you ask me 🙂
Because we got through part 4 with no trouble. It took three rounds of Harry beating, but he went down a lot easier with a cleric healing us instead of having to stop to drink silver flame pots. And round 5 went even easier.
It was a long haul, and I know other people have done it – probably faster or with less people – but it was a big deal for us!

Well done!! 4 manning Shroud is an achievement, no matter what others say. We tried to 5-man it with 17-20 chars but couldn’t get past part 4 either. 7 of us did the job pretty easily.
Gratz! It sounds like you had fun, which means you win DDO! 🙂
nice congrats/wish the zone crash problem was fixed and Husbans ticket could get answer so we could grind to 23…. very frustrating… ready to pull out my hair…
That’s totally badass! Congratulations!
Kudos! One of these days, I’d like to get into an all-monk Shroud (vaguely semi-random thought) or all-ranger.
@LrdSlvrHnd I think that would be really fun 🙂
EXCELLENT job! The only thing you could’ve done better is danced nekkid on the altar at the end. LOL
And thanks for the plug! 🙂
@EvenNote I wish we’d thought of that!!
