Oh Lailat, You’re so Funny

Some of you might not know, but I have been really working on getting a Marilith Chain for Darth sorted out. Meaning Tobril and I run it every Wednesday I talk the British Invasion in to knocking out at least one over the weekend and I pick up channel runs as I see them. I less then 3 weeks I have gotten about 11 completions on Darth. I assume I will need to get to 20 for a list and hope for good stuff. I might even lesser to take a second crack on the list. But this is not the story of trying and failing. This is a tail of Lailat (and maybe DDo as a hole) giving up the goods.

We had a full or mostly full run this weekend for an eH DQ. When the dust settled Darth was dead, but there was an amazing amount of good stuff in the chest. Grim had a Torc Shard drop for her, which she was good enough to pass to me.

BTW, I should point out that this was just the DG + HotDW+ our piking accounts.

There was at least 2 other good shards that dropped but I was too busy thinking about running off and having Samius make an Epic Torc so I didn’t take super notice of what the others were… Wait no, I am remembering a Dustless Boot and Spirit Sight shards want to say there was a few base items also.

Then I remembered that my piker hadn’t looted yet and when I did a torc was sitting in the box. The second one in 2 weekends with his name on it.

No he didn’t get to keep this one either, Grim’s arty got it, as she and my piker were the last two blue bars in the quest that didn’t have one. Seems like a fair trade to me.

While the Torc shard was my best loot of the weekend, I want to say most people had good things over the weekend.

EE Twisting Shade, EE Bastion, a ton of killer seals and scrolls Tobril got a stunning 10/str 2 Ring and both he and the wife pulled drow weapons. (Good ones even!)

Over all I would say this weekend was a solid loot weekend.

Oh one last thing. Feels like Grim and I are in a pissing contest to see who can be nicer to the other. She started winning when she gave my tank his EE Bastion. I returned the favor but making her lady a set of Stonedust/vamp wraps and then gave her back a EE bastion. She “gave” me 5 reds to make a red suit (but then Turbine shut off the Druid challenges making it impossible to get the favor) and then we swapped the Torc/shard around. So she is currently winning. Damn it I need to find something amazing to get for her and repay her those reds. I am at 21 atm but I have no idea what to get her…. Growl!


Missing Items

Over the last year to 18 months I have done more then a few TRs and it seems like every few lives I realize that something has gone missing. When I catch something missing I have no idea when I had it last or if there is anything else that has vanished. But the result is the same, the item is gone and I am confused wither or not there is anything I can do about getting these items back short of farming the raid. I did say all the ones I know that have gone missing have been raid items right?

The first time I noticed something missing was back when I did my Bard or Barb life. I had just turned level 12 and I was wearing shitty armor and I remembered that I had a set of Marilith Chain and Demon Scale from the DQ. I couldn’t remember which armor was the “good” for dps but I had them both. Before I started TRing I had taken all my active raid timers to a 20th list and I was passed the bad set in the chest and taken the “good” set in the end reward list. Thinking well if I am going to TR a whole bunch having armor would be the worst idea.

Of course I was missing the Marilith Chain when I went looking. Ended up using the Demon Scale for a few levels until switching to a Chain Shirt of Crippling and that went out for one of my many sets of Dragon Touched armor. But now that I think about it I don’t have the Demon Scale or the Chain Shirt of Crippling any more. Don’t think I would have sold them. But after I got fairly high in the Cannith crafting system I stopped using them so they might have gotten lost in the Armor wars. But I know that the Marilith Chain was stolen from me.

Long time readers might remember that durning my Sorc life I took a few weeks off grinding the xp to take a few raids to 20s again and to farm Epic von6 for shield parts, which I totally got by the way. But as I ran eV6 about 10 times for the shard for my shield I was passed lots of other base items just in case. Some I used others got added to the bank and doubles got sold. One such double item that I know I sold one of and kept the other was the Ruby Encrusted Gauntlets. I remember thinking that I could foresee making a set of gloves epic at some point the boost to fire spells and epic slots in gloves, but that was a long shot as I have 7 fingered gloves and like UMD.

But I had two pairs. I know that I had at least one set during my Arty life as I tried using the non epic version for its clickly thinking that if anyone can make this clickly worth wild it would be an Arty. It wasn’t by the way. But that was only a few months back.

Jump to last night when for some reason I thought that they might have some kind of combustion value and allow me one less weapon swap in combat and my glove slot happens to be empty now that I am no longer using the Vulkoor’s Might set. And no joy in the bank, which I guess is okay as taking a look at the ddowiki today, the level 9 version does not have any combustion.

So have you noticed any thing gone missing on TR? Like me does everything that goes missing seem to be raid items or is that just a trick of the mind and non-raid/named items go missing from time to time but I just don’t notice?
