We had a bonus day of running with the Defense Guild team on Friday due to Thanksgiving, so we decided to finish up from last week and complete the U16 chain on eE. There were just two missions to finish the chain, Stay at the Inn & The End of the Road. Both went fairly well, my partner seems to be finding her rhythm now as a cleric for a full party (i.e. she has to keep Samius’ tank alive while we run around sorting ourselves out 🙂 j/k).
It’s been a busy week, both in DDO & real life. But since I’m fairly sure you don’t want to hear about the project I’m on at work that’s filling my spare hours, or how I’m ripping out my garden, I’ll stick with DDO 🙂
We got one guildie back, then lost two. One of the guys has had some changes at work, so he can’t play for a few weeks. One guy has a new girlfriend. So we’re down to our three main players at the moment.
Thursday night I played on Orien again. Was killed for the first time ever by lag. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had plenty of lag in game before. But this was a complete standstill, cannot do anything while a horde of orcs massacred the party 🙂
Last night we decided to take our epic runs to the next level – Epic Elite!
Since one of our guildies has lost his VIP for the moment, but has the MotU expansion pack, we started with the first mission of the first chain in Eveningstar “Impossible Demands”.
And, surprising to us, it went quite well. A few deaths, sure, but we finished it without too much trouble. So, daringly, we decided to attempt the next one “The Unquiet Graves”. With my partner running her rogue and bluffing the incanters out that also went quite well… until the sneaky run for the end chest in an attempt to get it without having to trigger the remaining drow running around 😦 Fortunately we had the xp & favour so it wasn’t that big a deal.
More excitingly, I had a +3 INT tome drop as a mission end reward. Although my monk doesn’t really use INT, eating the tome takes me to an INT of 11 so I can now drink Silver Flame pots without ship buffs and not worry about running around helpless for 30 seconds 🙂
Overall, a fun night and hopefully we’ll be continuing with the chain tonight!
See you around 🙂
