Good evening ladies and gentlemen! It is approximately 4:53 AM, I have been a gatherin’ and a croppin’ screenshots for the past 5 hours. Just ask Kela! As hardcore as I am I will not sleep until all of the website fanatics have something to read when you roll outta bed in a few hours. I know exactly how you all feel. When Quarken use to do the website I use to go to bed anticipating the next days (or what would turn out to be the next week’s after his slack) website update. It was like waking up on Christmas morning and racing downstairs to see what Santa left you under the tree. I can’t deny you that feeling, so lets get this party started.
That list is DYNAMIC. It will change based on our needs in the upcoming days. The one-three-three-seven information for you applicants before applying:
- Register with our website.
- View the Applications forum.
- Read the post by Orruar titled, “Before you apply read this“.
- Talk to either Orruar or me (Dalnoth) before posting an application.
So, last time you heard from me Triality had just gotten access to Deathknell, Tower of Dissonance. Now, this zone is excellently designed. I just wish it had more content. It took us 5 days to reach the boss of the expansion Ayonae Ro.
Now we’ve rolled up on this rather distressed looking bard. We helped repel Mayong’s lackies from her chapel and she is just crazy for some reason about performing with her choir again. So we get down there to find out well Ayonae’s gonna wreck us and on top of it this church-going choir is gonna help. From a lore perspective I am totally lost. I have no fucking clue why we are here or why this bard is completely insane trying to kill us after we helped her but hey, the events were fun. I’d much rather have fun and interesting content than amazing story lines that make sense and a bunch of Hive Queen-esque events. Yes, in case you didn’t know, the Hive Queen raid sucked royal asshole.
We eventually beat her into submission, caught her off-guard, gave her the ol’ shocker treatment and trapped us a bard FOR ETERNITY!
The only music she heard was the pimp hand being laid upon her pretty face. Its a good thing when we trapped her, her loots were in a well concealed treasure chest under her robe.
A very nice job to everyone who logged on the Saturday of a holiday weekend at 4PM for the win.
Now, I know your probably wondering what the rest of the zone was like and where is the news post for the rest of it. It’s coming now because we absolutely destroyed the 4 events in this zone in about 5 days. So you get the whole shebang in one action packed news post.
The first event in Deathknell, The Tolling of Dissonant Bells, is also known as the Enforcer event. Basically you beat down some gargoyle’s while they try and reach this huge bell in the center of the tower to ring. If they ring it bad things happen like AE Death. After a couple attempts of strategizing we repelled the brutish gargoyle’s from the bell and advanced further into the the Tower of Dissonance.
What gets my Gold Medal of Swordocity and Awesomeness this expansion is this second encounter in Deathknell, Vertigo. It is a perfect balance. You need some DPS, tanks, rogues/bards, crowd control and last but not least you need some healing. That is the recipe for a win on this event but it is not just the balance which makes it my favorite. There are not many things I can say I do in EverQuest besides sneak/hide and backstab that makes me feel like a rogue. The rogue aspect of this encounter certainly gave me a thrill and chance to feel like a rogue and not an automated backstab machine. It was good times. I wish there were more encounters like this one. Eventually we progressed to the bottom of the Vertigo and drove Mayong’s vampiric-like spawns back through the portal from which they came.
I’m especially pissed off that I just lost an entire awesome paragraph here. So here is my best attempt to recreate it. Event #3, Unwelcome Guests, was nothing special; trust me. We won it. That’s all that matters.
Well, that wraps up the Prophecy of Ro expansion for us. Unfortunately this does mean it will most likely be the last news post I write until the new expansion. While I’m relieved to have a break after knocking out another update not even 2 weeks after the previous one which took me 8 hours to piece together. However I must disappoint: there is no Rot In Hell. I’m sure I could find something to rant about or get Fishlip up on the scene. There is really nothing better than calling him because he’s late for raids. You think hes asleep then he picks up and goes, “You caught me at the most inopportune of times Scotty!”. Then this chick grabs the phone and goes, “Hey Scotty, I’m about to give my man a blow job can he call ya back?!”. We then proceeded to call him back around 2AM with about 20 people listening to his phone conversation through the magic that is the internet. He was ranting about how blue-raspberry sweet tarts are gonna give everyone cancer, that Scientology is the way of life and many other things. So if you want a Rot In Hell, talk to Fishlip about the blue-raspberry sweet tarts.
I’m gonna take the opportunity, to use the what would be Rot In Hell space, to thank everyone who has been a part of Triality through out the years, allowing us to have the continued success in the end game that we do. What is so great about all this is that we all have a great time while achieving this success and that’s what makes this guild the place to be. It has truly been a pleasure and I would like to thank everyone who has had a hand in this making it possible. Don’t even think this is the end for me, I just needed to drop my regards for you all. You’ll be seeing plenty of me. Yeah, “I’m done, kid”.
See you all next expansion!
