    Default Doozy of a Shroud

    I ran Shroud on normal last with a pug, and I could have sworn that Harry was on steroids. His health bar shortened ever so slowly and he was throwing fireballs around like I have never seen before.

    I thought "Harry" was Horoth's nickname?

    I guess phonetically there is some similarity between the first couple syllables of "Arraetrikos" and "Harry", but I'd have sworn I never heard "Harry" mentioned in DDO before The Tower of Despair came out.

    I've seen Arraetrikos abbreviated to Arry, 'Arry, and Harry. Never seen that nickname used for Horoth.

    its cause when the shroud first came out the annoucer dude sounded like a harry potter wannabe and get saying 'arry this and 'arry that!

    sulumendes (wow i just totally butchered that!) got shortened to sulu for obvious reasons, then when harry caught on, a lot of people were calling sulu sally. ( for when harry met sally for those who have forgotten the movie)

    Ah, okay. I always hear Suulomades called "Sully". I personally call him "The Big Grey Chicken". People don't talk about Arraetrikos much, it seems; they just go in and kill him while talking about build options or football or whatever. Come to think of it, The Shroud feels like standing in the grocery store checkout line; everyone knows what to expect, so everyone just makes small talk while waiting for it to be over so they can go home with some ingredients.

    Maybe the prevalence of nicknames varies server to server.

    Sometimes "Harry" does get really pi$$ed off and goes Midevil. I only have about 100 Shroud runs and have seen this only a hand full of times.
