Shoutin’ in the street, gonna take on the world some day. May 29, 2009

Posted by castillion in eq 2, Second String.

Quite the adventure last night.

It was an off raid night, so Second String formed up to amuse ourselves. What shall we do? Aiden in Ward of Elements? Protector’s Realm for Plat? Shards? Speaking of Shards, Shard of Hate?

We eventually decided upon Shard of Hate and formed up with 7 people.

Anep – 80 Shadow Knight (also seen during the night as Worknemangel – 80 Dirge)
Sasspanz – 80 Assassin
Sinnir – 80 Templar
Castillion – 80 Coercer
Taylona – 80 Fury
Tarsir (Rhesus) – 80 Shadowknight
Aeyanna – 80 Troubadour

The Magnificient Seven against the evils of the Shard of Hate.

There’s still a lot of loot we need out of this zone. Anep is wanting the plate healer gloves, I wouldn’t mind the axe that drops from trash for Cilantro, Marrowsong for Aeyanna, masters and several trash drops are still nice. I won’t mention the Hood of Dark Dealings from Master P’Tasa….although killing Master P’Tasa with 7 would be quite the feat.

We cleared to Dreadlord D’Somni with little trouble and even a couple of exquisite chest along the way. A master dropped that I do not remember what it was and some chain pants that we muted.

We have one grouped this guy before, so we know we can do it. We pulled him and killed him and prepared for the Beacon of Loathing crap loot, but wait…what is this? Ethereal Mist Gauntlets! Only the most uber healer gloves ever! Anep logged over to Azznep so fast we barely had time to say “Hey man did you want those?” and was soon sporting some new gloves, a smile, and a tent in his pants.

Next on our grocery list of bosses to visit was Demetrius Crane. Is it wrong I always think the the headless horseman and Ichabod Crane where I hear his name? Again, a couple of exquisites dropped on the way to him, the Diamond Rod and some nice plate pants, the rod going to Tarsir and the plate pants going to Aeyanna’s guardian alt.

Demetrius Crane is another mob that has already been thumped by Second String, so we pulled him and killed him. It did take a couple of tries and we had to change the groups around a bit, but once again, he was thumped. He rewarded us by dropping the oh so crappy dagger which we promptly blew up.

Next up, Master P’Tasa. This bastard has punished us for trying to one group him and we haven’t managed to get him down. However, we came armed with some new info and a fresh determination to kill him. I know, we only have 7 people with us, but we’re ignorant like that.

The initial pull saw us get him to 65%, which means.. we can kill him. I was excited because, hey, I want that freaking HoDD. We pulled again and wiped once more but we saw the issue and corrected for the next pull. One more pull and Master P’Tasa was dead. Wow. That is one mob that, to me, is impressive to kill with 7 people. Oh yeah, he dropped the freaking Hood of Dark Dealings!. Ho…lee..shee….eeet… I have been lusting after that hood forEVER! I’ve lost on it multiple times, but this time there were no other mages in the raid group..so it was all MINE! MINE DO YOU HEAR ME!

A shot of the new duds:


We were on such a high, that we decided to let the Sisters bitch slap us, which they did. Then we ported off the Sebilis and hit PR before calling it a night. Castilian, my little Templar, picked up the Vyx Crested Locket and the chests seemed to be overflowing with platinum.

All in all, it was an awesome night.

Unfortunately, our fun is coming to a pause, as Anep is getting ready to leave for about a month. I would say that it was nice to go out out a note like last night, but you know Second String, we celebrate everything with a party, and you know we have to have a going away party for Anep. Sasspanz came up with an awesome idea and I don’t want to talk about it yet, but I expect to have a lot of laughs Saturday night. I’ll definitely fill you in on Monday!
