Went in again with Haek. But this time on hard
And quite a different setup, too.
I took my 18Sorc/2Monk Shiradi and Haek took his 16Arti/2Pali/2Monk Juggernaut (in LD Destiny).
Who again said warforged are dead?
Our tactics went as follows:
Haek charged up his Blitz, buff up and go.
Took down first mobs, he stacked up the blitz. First Lolth fight was pretty easy, didn't take long at all.
We both had our ioun stones going in all Lolth fights. It doesn't absorb the damage, but the curses, so helps a lot there.
I mainly stood in the back just throwing MMs and FMs and also kept Haek repaired (his SP we're drained quickly).
When legs spawned we took a bit different approach this time, not killing the bebiliths one by one. We had 3-4 up all the time, since we had some decent AOE damage going.
After all legs we're down we shrined up, which was a bit hairy to be honest with just two people while there was still trash spawning, but we both managed to get the shrine.
Back on Lolth I had a kinda stupid death. Didn't put back on my ioun stone and surprised by it couldn't react quick enough and got killed.
2nd death was just a bit after the first. I let my HP go down a bit two much and got crushed by the hands evil trap.
I had the raise timer of course in after both deaths, so that could have ended quite badly.
Haek finished her off though.
The way to the first optional wasn't really hard. Optional went very smoothly too.
Shrined up after it.
What might be of remark is that we killed each and every single mob in there. Even all the mistresses, so we had some nice fights going on there
Second optional went down even smoother.
We shrined again after it and off to the end fight.
Did our usual tactic, pulling everything down on the island, Haek took care of the wards when they showed up. When everything was down we engaged Lolth. Couldn't shrine though since Ana was down again to 0 Health.
That Lolth fight was just tough. Haek constantly tried to keep up his blitz.
I just fired away on her, also having an eye on Haek.
I had to drinkway more pots though than I wanted to.
In the end I used 41, Haek 5 or 6.
Haek bit the dust, when she fired a lot at him and just through a drain on me that got me to 0sp.
Couldn't react quick enough to drink a pot and repair him.
So it got a bit hairy there with the death timer up again.
I just hide behind a rock killing all the mobs that soawned and waited for Haek to be back.
He charged his blitz up again and we went back on her.
I had her aggro quite a lot then of course, which made me drink the most pots, being constantly on low SP.
Anyway she went down - Ana did the orb and we shrined again.
Pulled the last mobs (don't want to spoil exactly how you do this ), killed the last keepers and done.
This time we also remembered to make it a raid group, so we could get 10 more people in for the Lootz
Surprisingly even 5 chests popped up - I suspected less, since we used 4 shrines, but hey won't complain.
We finished in a pretty decent time too. 105 minutes total.
