3 members of MV completed Von3 elite Saturday night on an in-guild pick up group:
Wonk: 8 ranger/2 fighter
Vhal: 10 ranger/1 rogue
Mike: 11 sorc
Awesome quest, and an awesome time!
The next night another group completed Von4 elite, but I'm pretty sure MV has done that before a few times.
No twinking, no bought loot, no ship buffs or anything of the sort, no spoilers (though each of us has been in at least once, and we did, admittedly, use foreknowledge to survive one very cheap mechanic), just great play by a great group of guys.
Tip of the hat to Vhal and Mike and all the other MVers that make this game so fun!!
