    It was an exercise in control and really in the end it didnt matter to me and hopefully those in group who believed this guy will someday soon learn different.


    Group forms for von flagging, leader says he is very experienced and will guild the new folks through so I fall back in line and **** for the ride.

    Von1 went smoothly. Leader took us to a door and asked where the rogue was because he needed to pick it so we could get at the chest inside. Rogue says "I am picking it now and you guys are at the wrong door". Leader says "my mistake". It happens so I dont think much of it at the time. We complete the quest without a hitch.

    Von2 I notice everyone got lost in the maze as I waited for them at the fire giant. They eventually found their way and I asked if we could split in 2 groups for the sake of time..... we did and the quest was completed without further issue.

    Von3 we clear all the trolls and leader says we should all shrine. I stand by the door (party healbot) just didnt wanna walk over to the shrine for no reason. Leader says "you may wanna get your sp back b4 next part" I say " It will refill between instances" Leader says "OK but your not gonna have any sp until the next shrine" I dont say anything, we just enter the next part and he says "Oh... I guess you were right".

    Now Im thinking to myself, this guy may know these quests but likely hasnt played in over a year. So he askes if the chest was still up the ramp when your first enter the quest, I said no but we went and checked anyway.... wasnt there of course. Party kills a bunch drow without issue and then we get to beholders. Old school style he tells me to park it behind a mushroom and rezz whoever dies. The rogue dies, then the wiz and I get a little frustrated and move forward to the rest of the group.

    Leader starts unleashing holy hell on me for coming out of the safe spot and I tell him to chill. We had a wf fighter and told the wf to go kill the beholders. Leader says the fighter will get nuked and die, I said no he wont, I'll just heal him. Leader says that hes done this over 50 times and when the fighter gets disintergrated Im gonna get nuked right after him and dont drag anything back to the party. I said "hes a wf fighter, hes gonna make his saves...its a fort save". Anyway, the wf goes on a killing spree and offs all the beholders in just a few minutes, including a named behole and I healed him twice and only had to avoid 1 purple beam but never took damage myself.

    Next we fight the Marut. Leader tells wizzy to spam disintergrate. I started to argue that MM and firewall combo would be better because disintergrate is a fort save and the marut will probably make his saves for half but figured I would just support him with searing light. The melees boxed him in and started swinging and the leader says "good job all but the ranger was healing him with the fire damage on his sword" I said "The marut heals naturally, wasnt the fire" Leader says "yes it was, he wasnt healing before he got hit with fire" I said "k whatever".

    Von4 Leader gets into an arguement with the wizard over the proper use of firewall. Tells him hes suppossed to jump around in it and not cast it on top of a melee whos fighting. Wizard says " you were getting pounded so I drew the aggro off you so you wouldnt die, I was trying to help" then various names get tossed back and forth. After they are done we move on only to discover the leader doesnt know how to do the wheel puzzle but thats fine I just say I'll do it and we moved on completing the quest as normal.


    He made the list........... He waved the "Ima vet card" in everyones faces and was still clueless while feeding the new players all sorts of false info. I look foward to him leading a shroud raid one day and splitting the group into 4 with each group fighting 1 Luietenant in a different corner of the maze. You will know him when you see him...... he will be the group looking for 4 healers, 6 dps and 2 casters.

    On a Cabal for one Quest (LFM had know the quest / self healing):

    This one was annoying being spammed on trade channels:
    (Trade): [<Player:xxx>xxx<\Player>] WTB 30 minute guest pass to Necro4

    I recall another one where the LFM had P2P for Necro, a person joined, kept asking how to get to the quest and then said he couldn't get in could someone let him in. It was a F2P who wanted us to buy it for them...



    But, to support your questing with new players, I always get a kick out of statements like this:
    (General): [<Player:xxx>xxx<\Player>] wow, i just killed agiant skeleton. cool @#$%

    Always cool when you are party with someone loving the experience of D&D.

    Default My biggest Noob Moment

    VoN 6 Old school style back when the level cap was still 10. We were short maning with 6 for better chance at the lewt.

    Mobs dragged back to home, base puller raised, pillars go down with little issue. The only cleric was busy explaining how the hero method was going to work yada yada

    .........
    Cleric has died.
    Cleric " **** I hit Autorun and went over the side."

    To this day I have yet to live this down 4 years later. Damn noob moments, its what makes the game fun. Endless material to give each other ****.

    Chest in Part 3, i do believe was changed when VoN's went epic. I am not 100% sure if it is random or not, but it seems it is not there more often then not.

    Oh here is a good one. Was running deleras about 3 weeks ago. The leader starts wanting to slow down in part 2 and hit all the optional complaining about max xp. So they finish the quest and naturally I recall. The leader and this noob ranger run all the way back through the quest to break all the breakables and finish one more optional after the quest was completed. It took 15 more min. In which time we could have reran 90% of part2 without the optionals for much more xp. It was really funny.
    Toons are in a constant state of flux. Khyber server.

    Default OK 2 foor 1 special this week

    I see an Lfm for DTOV level 14-18. I'm on my Wizzy/1 rogue. I join cuz I need the boots. I head out and am told we need a healer. I say OK NP I'll clear til we get one but I can UMD heal scrolls and we're level 14-18 we should do fine.

    Down to last vamp ask leader are you almost here so we can finish(he died on the 1st attempt out)? He says no I don't even know how to get there. A person tells him jump right and follow water to pyramid. Leader says. Do you mean the place I died on the stairs going out there the first time?

    You have got to love it. An LFM for a quest that you don't even know how to get to.

    OH. BTW he was a guild leader and was talking to another dude in our group that he just recruited. The other dude says ya the guild I was in is wondering why I left to join yours (our group leader). So was I actually.

    You just can't make this sh!t up.

    Th optional phenomenon is a funny one...I was in a Xorain party and we had finished but missed one rune along the way and the leader wanted to find it for the XP. So 10 minutes of running around (turned out to be the one in the puzzle room) we pop it...you have received 415 xp. Yippie.... It's a lesson I guess we learned as newb's that most of the time the optional xp isn't worth the hassle.

    True dat! A lot of people think that zergers are just elitist pigs, but in reality, they just don't waste time on the BS.

    I've been farming it a bit and on a later run the leader was going on about needing someone with Cha for the runes. I explained it was 415 and not worth the wait took the next guy and flew through it...I understand the ops on Delera's 2 or ToD...the xp is good plus the chests. Worse than the optional thing is skipping a junk chest...whew I have seen some angry folks when we said we were not going to grab a chest full of rocks and plus one ****.
