Yo everyone. Before we git goin let’s talk about recruiting some more. Look on our forums under the Applications section for our requirements. If you feel you meet those and wanna floss and fly with us, then you should go ahead and send Orruar a tell in game. After that, he’ll give you the top secret handshake and you’ll be on your way to a being the next American Idol. Currently, this is what we’re seeking:
That list there changes when we fill or empty one of our luxurious positions. So keep checking back if we hate your class at the moment! You never know, we might love you soon.
Well, last we spoke, we had just killed Slipperyanus The Redfang and busted into Tier 2 of the fabled Demi-Plane of Blood. Here’s a tier 2 spoiler you can feast on: Triality kicks the shit out of Tier 2 Demi-Plane, more news at 10. The update here may seem a little vacant and that is because there is nothing to say about these events. This tier, so far, is chock full o’ lay down Sallys. I heard alot of fuss and hog wash about the difficulty on some of these encounters. So I’m just gonna say this now. No analogies, no funny business: Tier 2 is easy. Sorry we don’t need a 20 cleric complete heal chain for every mob. All the events are so self explanatory. They imitate Trial of Foresight’s and previous encounters’ dynamic pretty much all the time. So it’s nothing new. The events tell you exactly what you need to know to beat them. To have difficulty understanding them would mean you’re clinically retarded. If they got any more easy or obvious, the event would look like this:
So let’s start with our most recent kill, Roley DeFarge. We killed him on our second attempt. This fight is pretty cool and a bit different than the rest of the stuff in DP. The best part is theres no emotes, which is nice because half of the mobs in DP look like ‘Other’ spam to most of us and Entering The Guild Lobby…to the rest.
Cuirass of the Fallen Saint
Narcissist’s Ballroom Mask
Tear of Deepest Regretsint
Devlin Rochester is next. We beat him pretty good in 4 tries and haven’t had any trouble kicking his ass after that. The best part about this fight is the screenshot I got, look at that pelvic thrust. Simmer down ladies. This little slice of heaven is a fun fight, a bit too easy but fun. The difficult portion is a little too random, so he can hand you your ass or lay down and take up the hoo-ha.
Shadowmane Hide Cloak
Greaves of the Vampire Hunter
We also killed Tri Swallow. We had a bit of difficulty putting this bitch in her place the first time. We got a little too bloodthirsty and made some incorrect judgement calls on how to ‘save’ her. This bitch has got some serious emotion issues. Love me now, beat me then. Same old song and dance with these ladies.
Alluring Amethyst Amulet
Tris’ Emroidered Felt Cloak
So basically, 1 more encounter left til The Big Nasty himself. Being in Tier 2 for only like 15 days, I’d say that’s pretty good. We’ll see how it goes. I hope I don’t sound too cocky writing this, because that isn’t the angle I’m going for, honestly. But when you work to get to a certain point in this game, and then it turns out the fights are easy as this, it’s pretty much a let down. I hope The Performer kicks our asses for weeks, so when we finally beat him, we’re all amped and shit. Tough to get that rewarding “Mata’Muram feeling” when you walk up to some encounter, slap it in the face and eat it’s lunch. Know what I mean?
Now, if you read this a few hours ago when I published it, right about now you’re saying to yourself, ‘Hey, did this update just grow words and shit?’ Ya, it did. I’m a talkative son of a gun and those empty more boring than ever 1 liners about the fights kept me up all night. So I came here to spam you more with hot info. I feel better, and now I can go to sleep for 43 minutes.
