This weekend was full of DDo. There was a little yard work done but mostly it was too windy to really get into it, so the wife and I stayed in and played DDo.
But as it can do (shit I am starting to sound like the Brits now..) the weekend turned into what do you want to do? Sure we did a few raids and a few item hunts but until we stumbled into EE Tor we were mostly unfocused.
The first quarter of the quest, the quest itself went very quickly and smoothly. I even broke out my new playthings; I was able to pick up the new Dreampiercer and Sireth, Spear of the Sky very nice! I would have preferred the new cloak from FoT but mad loots for Samius is good loots.
We started to stumble on the dragons however but we pushed threw the Black and the white ones easy enough. The Blue on the other hand still causes us issues, after 3 tries at the blue dragon lots of them real close to winning it was like 3 in the morning for the Brits and one last push was out of the question. Besides how many time do you hear 4th time was the charm?
Next day we do a gear/twist check and we find some areas that can use some help. Samius might have to adjust his twists for energy sheath but when we all look at our EE healer we find some holes.
Like a focus we start to hunt xp and gear for this key person. She needs xp because she has more or less worked up Exalted Angel destiny and never left it. Why would she? The character mostly is pulled out to heal us all in EEs and doesn’t do much else. Although she has the purple knight favor AND lots of good toys at her disposal… So working her down to Draconic for energy sheath is about to be key for EE blue dragon hunting.
Also we start hitting the Giant Hold chain for any djinn rings for some electric absorption. Turns out Javabot was one or two quests from completing the chain and got a normal on in the end list… We might even need to make a few shroud absorption items even tear one and two would really help reduce the damage of those traps. I know a few mins in to the fight as soon as I failed to save vs the traps I was dead and Sam has about 700 hp 1000 if my queen likes me so I will be making a tear 2 absorb item for the blue dragon for sure!
The thing I felt was the funniest comment of the whole weekend was Rach (our EE healer) saying that one of her guildies (the tank at the time) needed to cap out her healer and would be doing so EVEN IF SHE (Rach) HAD TO LEVEL IT HER SELF!
Well I will admit that cord struck true and I think once I have gotten my arty up into epic levels I will try to break out my healer and maybe get him EE ready. I am not sure how well a first life mostly under geared Clr will do, maybe I should lesser my first live FvS? I am sure when the time comes I will talk it out with you all here…. So very exciting.
