    Default Kudos to Formal

    I have had the good fortune of piking, I mean, participating in many of Formal's Abbot groups. Yesterday, due to circumstances beyond the group's control, the ice puzzle wiped. Now, most groups would have given up and done a reset at this point, but Formal does not give up easily. The other two puzzles completed successfully, so he asked us to gather in the east as usual for Inferno, and to chug curse pots and spam heals during the attack.

    The Abbot kept chain-Infernoing and Encasing one right after the other. At one point, there were only two or three people alive. There was a long stretch of time in there where I had serious doubts, nor was I the only one... someone else expressed over voice chat that it would probably be better to restart. We did have a few UMD-capable classes to help resurrect, though, and eventually we stabilised the situation enough to complete a beatdown. Quickly completing ice, we zoned back into the main platform, where the Black Abbot was once again prevented from ascending to godhood.

    This is by no means the first time I've seen Formal snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with a few gentle instructions in a raid. And being a gentleman, he of course offered to reimburse mana pot usage. And to top it off, at the end chest, he put a +3-to-4 Strength tome up for roll. I'm sure he could have used it on an alt!

    So thanks Formal for doing more than your fair share at lifting Thelanis up.

    Anyway... someone post a loot drama thread quick before the butterflies kill the hamster and crash the server
    I Cannith-craft (150 levels in all schools) for free on Thelanis if you provide all needed materials.

    We managed to wait until Thursday for the weekly butterfly thread. Whats wrong with us?!? As far as loot drama, you'll have to talk to Bibi about that one.

    But yes, I agree. Formal is certainly one of Thelanis's finest.

    I'm not surprised, Formal is the MAN! I always have fun in his raids.

    Fully agree. Haven't ran abbot for over half a year, but I'll join one of his runs when I see one.

    We at CLAW miss Formal but he still invites us to his raids and groups all the time. He taught us how to run abbot and many other raids over the years. I haven't met many players as good as he is, much less as pleasant to game with.

    Its nice to see Formal get much deserved props.

    Agreed, Formal is an incredibly classy guy and has done a lot to nurture other players and, through that, the game itself. This is well-deserved recognition, Thalone, and nice of you to post it.

    Thanks for the kind words Thalone and everyone.

    Credit for that Abbot success should really go to Tustn of Inferus Sus and Counselour of CLAW, our healers. Also to anyone who was using rez scrolls, sorry I'm not sure who you were. Urkh and I just ran around on the water and called encouragement.
