Tier 2 is Dead! Woot! Okay, that was a pretty big deal, so I'll say it again: TIER 2 IS DEAD! Woot! But to get there, we had to get through two very formidable targets, Drusella's Vault and The Sathir Line. For those that haven't heard (hah!), this one was a bit of a challenge, but after some serious revamping of our caster DPS we were able to rise to meet the hurdle and jump on over Drusella's Vault a mere 75 attempts later. Yes, you read that right. 75. From piles of bones, to more oozes then ya can shake a stick at, this one required a good deal of shaking our collective bacon, then in true vault fashion, proper intercepting and positioning of golems before going on to push it over.
After Drusella's Vault comes the next DPS check, The Sathir Line. Honestly, once you've rigged to beat Drusella's Vault, this one is all about finding the proper balance of DPS on the available targets.
Poor Kenur, he just couldn't take being MA one more second! With spectres and skeletons, Venril, Rile and Drusella Sathir, its a veritible undead extravaganza. Say it with me people, Damage on the adds is more important then damage on the names! We were proud to add this fight to our extensive collection of server firsts, and move on with the process of finishing up our flags for Tier 3. Now we have a little hard earned rest, then its on to Veeshan's Peak and dragons, dragons, dragons!
Calling all Wizards! Do you like fast and furious loud walks in a crowded room while setting the whole world on fire? Have a penchant for blowing up piles of bones and calling forth damage like no other? If you are passionate about dishing out the damage, we're looking for you! Find out more here, or send a tell in game to luclin.adetia, luclin.masonight or luclin.drizerker. Will also consider high dps mage, enchanter or necromancer.
Well, we're almost a week in on Ring of Scale, and we've cleared the first two raids and marching onward towards both the holidays and gathering up more Tier 1 flags, while having a lot of fun navigating new content and dodging bugs and broken things.
Despite a massive experience bug, the saviour bug, etc, we've been enjoying questing, gathering up new gear, and fighting new raids. Server stability has been better then expected given the Luclin hamster trying to give it up on an almost daily basis prior to RoS launch. Hopefully the patch to fix the rez bug, and then subsequent fixes will be coming soon for the Saviour/heroic problems.
We scored third serverwide on this big cactus dude, but Drowtoy was sad we did not have our matching cactus hats yet to complete the look.
Last night marked our first journey into Sathir's Tomb for RoS Tier 2 raiding. We went in a little understaffed due to flagging, but we walked away big winners! ;) We're still doign our thing and having a great time rolling on to new targets, along with starting our guild hunter project, two zones down, and hundreds of achievements complete!
Lately I seem to have a special knack for finding every nook, cranny, and hole to fall into.... and Bid is always there to capture it forever! ;)
Its been a long time since I've been here with a content update, I kept meaning to do it, but we had a long winter with a few of our members passing away in real life, and it just took the wind out of my sails in terms of updating the website and bumping their honorariums off the front page, but its time.
We finished EoK some time ago (many months ago to be honest), and truthfully it was a good expansion cycle for us. The farm has worn on now for awhile, and its basically just passing the time and cleaning up a few special achievements we have remaining, going back and clearing up TBM Vanquishers for new members, that type of thing that keeps us busy. From finishing our hunter series, spending time in Sebilis during HH2017 (oi, that raid tho), and working like a bunch of whirling dervishes on powering up our Artisan Prize augments, we are finding quite a few projects to keep busy with while passing the time.
As we look towards next expansion, we stand at the ready, but we are always on the hunt for high playtime applicants who are passionate about playing EverQuest! We are particularly looking for an amazeballs rockstar shaman, as well as a high dps monk or berserker.
It doesn't seem possible but here I am again, so soon, once more with somber news. We learned this weekend that Marc Grenier, (Kaneazen the enchanter) has passed away. While Marc was an exceedingly private person and didn't really like to talk about it at all, it was his long-term health issues that saw him come and go from our raiding force as he was able. To those who knew him, his sharp sense of humour will be remembered long after he is gone. He raided with us last in 2016 during our TBM farm season, and he was always willing to help just about anybody with just about anything, and many of us kept in touch with him via Facebook since then to talk about music and life in general. He will be missed.
I don't have many words, because I'm just ... beyond shocked and growing weary in my heart and soul of making these posts. I am sad to inform you that Kinvaras has passed away this weekend (pancreatic cancer); and while most of our newer members won't remember him, as its been a very long time since he has played with us; some of us older fart video gamers will remember his time with us in TR.
Chris Storace, aka. Kinvaras
April 6, ?? - March 18, 2017
Chris was a sailor; he was so proud of his service and his time in his Navy. To us, he was an outspoken, fiercely loyal friend who was never afraid to speak up or let his feelings be known. One thing was for sure, you did not want to cross him on the forums, for he'd smack ya back down into place right quick! He was passionate, and i've enjoyed staying in touch over the years via facebook even though its been a few years since he really played with us in earnest.
We'll remember and carry the torch now; rest easy my friend. Despite his Everquest bravado and straightforward take no prisoners manner; Chris was a big believer in kindness and taking care of each other, and doing our part to make the world a better place. The world's a bit better for him having been here, and a little duller without him.
Fair winds, Kinvaras.
