Last night the DG formed up and did a Web and A EE Tor… You know I remember back when 3ish hours of play was more then 2 quests… But that is a tangent for another time. No today I want to tell you about how I just kept getting kicked in the nuts in that EE tor.
Before we started the Tor I reset some of my destinies and some twists planning for the EE Blue dragon. That guy is still causing me problems. But the rest of the quest is fairly easy. So naturally I was clicking on Cocoon when some random giant crits me (as I have swapped out extra fort for energy shield…) right at the start of the quest. I mean in the first 10 mins. And LEAD the killed count.
During the boss fight I had the agro of the boss and at least 1 skelly. Down to 100 sp I let people know I am going to shrine and someone needs to take the boss so I can go. In a few secs the boss is off me and I take a hit. Instead of DDing and leaving I try to heal first then I plan to DD. Nope another killer hit. Death 2.
I get rezed first thing DD. Heal on the way to the shrine and rest up. I get back to the fight. Firing off one chain missile and 3 magic missiles at the boss as my target and for some reason 2 of the caster skellies and one of the barb skellies break off whoever has had their agro this whole time and roll me. Hold Monster and a few other spells take me low, just as I break free I get reheld and hit by the barb skellie. Ding again. Death 3.
Thankfully, I lived to the Black Dragon fight with out another death and I was good through the fight, one dragon down, two to go. During this time another guildie logged on and joined our group. But he took more then one death durning the Black fight and raged logged just before the wall went down and refused to get back on to loot the chest. One less puller. L But on the up side one person (not a DG) pulled the True Imp Blood augment. So that was a nice pull. I tried to roll on it even thought he wanted it but I lost the roll so /cry. J
After we looted I ran over to were the Tor boss fight is and started to clear that room one fight at a time. Assuming everyone was right behind me. I looted all the gold, the chest and shrined what could they be doing? I get held again and killed, look over at the wife’s Screen and they are still in the black room buffing? /facepalm…
The rest of the quest was poking fun at me for being squishy. But at this time I only had one more death then the other caster, who was leading the poking fun charge. But I gave as good as I got. And when his death count (White Dragon fight) caught up to mine I pointed out that he was just squishy as I was… and that was good times.
Then the Blue… Everything was going well. We prepped the giant. I left Rainbow off as to not perma dot him. And we all switched to the dragon. I get low on trash and Cocoon is not enough and I pop a heal scroll but it is too late and I take a huge hit from the giant who should have been on the sorc, ding! There are a few more deaths, but the wife lives long enough to throw not one but two rezs my way as I take a ball lighting right as I take the rez as a ranged person runs trash to the wall where people are coming back to life.
She throws another one and I see her fail the concentration check due to another bloody ball lighting. Tobril throws me a rez so I can start rezing others but I move away from the trash and it vanishes. I hate when that happens. We all decide that he should just kill the dragon/giant as they are prepped but I think he threw one more rez at the sorc and it was a good thing he did as about then he drinks a silver flame pot, fails a save and is slowed and he dies. The sorc pops up and blasts hard with both guys at a sliver and we win.
The DG was skunked minus Tobril getting the Cold/force stick but think as a whole we had at least 1 named item per chest. Just would have loved getting the hat I want.
Want to say finished that quest with around 5-6 deaths. But I kept a smile on my face because I was having fun. Maybe once I find that hat I can start the massive gear shuffle and I wont be a squishy little Halfling any more.
