Yep, as we had 2 L6 characters and a L7character, doing the last of the STK chain on elite (a L5 quest, bring difficulty up to L7) the traps were unspottable for our under-geared L6 rogue. Doing it on hard was only a bit challenging, with a only a couple close calls. Having a cleric with radiant servant was a large part of our success in this regard. I think the only close calls were:
1. Just past the drawbridge, Narcene and Jedial were cut off from Mansoor when the gates closed and the spiders attacked. With one or two spiders left, Jedial had to use a quick LOH on Narcene when he noticed her health reduced down to about 12.
2. The water filled room with all the platforms - not really a "close" call, but we had to take it very slow to not draw aggro from multiple casters and disable the traps.
3. The end fight - I noticed Mansoor toss off multiple radiant heals during the battle, not ssure how low our health was getting but I am sure he wasn't just "topping us off" during the fight.
Irestone was fun. We realized we could not use our usual style of "slow and sneaky" as effectively in this quest due to the large number and frequent respawns of wandering mobs. Many times we had finished off the various camps of mobs and were busy looting the chests when out of thin air there would appear witch doctors, infiltrators, wargs, and clerics. So we had to speed things up a little, but stayed quite a bit left of zerging. Still made use of ranged/bluff, just quicker and without as much discussion.
At the end of the night Jedial had leveled up to 7 and Narcene is very close to L7. Jedial was happy to get a +1 Keen Greatsword with a red slot as an end reward, ML2. He replaced his +1 shock greatsword with this new weapon and will keep an eye open for an augment to slot in it.
PS - Percy has been MIA for 3 weeks in a row now. Vinnie was present last week, but was MIA this week.
Guys - is it time to try and recruit another player? Even if we are all present, we still have one open slot.
