    Default Epic MA - From Orien!

    Inspired by the Epic LoB completion by the Myths and friends from hours earlier, OR decided to try out epic MA.

    Friday, 1/13/2012


    We completed on our first run! With optional. Shortmanned.

    9 guildies plus 2 friends (Shataan and Shalara). Thanks guys!

    Thanks to Shalara and Shataan for joining us at the last minute.

    We used 98 mana pots trying out various tactics, testing spell immunities and overhealing like crazy. Totally doable with no/minimal mana pot usage.

    And for all those artificers out there: Cerebral Distillation Units indeed drop on epic. Two were in the optional chest but too bad we had no artificers.

    Half of those was from an unamed person who apparently needed to get rid of a stack of pots for more inventory space. Most used 5-10 pots. As Carpone said, easily doable without any. We were taken back a bit by how much harder the green titan hits on Epic.

    Thanks for having me along - I logged in at the perfect time

    Considering I have only done this raid a couple of times, it was a great experience!

    eLoB is much more challenging than eMA. I've personally been away from the game a bit - took about two months off before winter break, and a lot of guildies have been chain-TR'ing. Because this was an unplanned, spontaneous affair, we couldn't even fill the party and ran with 11. (I'm pretty impatient.)

    We could run some more routine, minimal resource epic Cannith raids on Orien. I'm sure of it.


    On Thelanis, where they did a 21min Epic LoB, I was very jealous:

    We'd been forming about 10 Epic LoB runs in a week. Through these continuous E LoB runs, every players in the Highroller Chat Channel are trained and geared perfectly for this successful speed run.
    10 Epic inter-guild channel runs a week! That's pretty awesome. And the record completion was clearly done with inter-guild cooperation.

    This.
    +1 for calling a spade a spade.

    That has been all I can think about since being in eLoB for over an hour on two occasions. Sadly, I'm told that if I didn't have to leave with LoB at 5% health, the first run probably would have completed, (on duty to pick kid up from school and never imagined we'd be 2+ hours after getting 12 names on the screen. My fault).

    I'm proud of orien as a JV kid who scored a bucket in a varsity game, but times posted by other servers are a reminder of, and motivation for what needs to happen next. Well, that sounds a bit dramatic. Lets just say, I'm less "excited and happy," and more "motivated to step it up a notch."

    Drops on Normal MA as well for what it's worth. Tested.

    Good to hear, but the drop rate must be abysmal on normal.

    Yeah either they up'ed the drop rate or just bad luck, they don't seem uncommon to me.

    Well, our guild just ran epic MA with optional, and we found two in the optional chest.



    Funny thing is, it's for "Tobin's Hammer." Unfortunately we spent a lot of time and effort killing the wrong dude. Sorry Toven.

    Can I get a job as a proofreader at turbine? I presume they get paid. And the work doesn't seem too hard. ;P
    I had made a separate thread about this since the DDOwiki had outdated info. When the Cannith pack first came out, we ran the raids quite a lot until the lag monster crippled us. Idk if it was just Orien, but on some nights it was impossible to even run to the raids as the entire raid party would lag out in wilderness encounters and wipe. Frustrated we stopped running these two raids regularly for quite some time. Also, with MA in particular, the optional originally produced no chest at all. It must have been bugged, and this is probably why the DDOwiki lists the Cerebral Distillation Unit as location unknown.

    Obviously, there's still sloppiness at play. I'm no programmer, but judging from the sloppiness of the description text's reference to "Tobin's Hammer," I am not surprised that the program code references are probably also sloppy and therefore broken.
