    Completed 6 levels below quest level? That's impressive work.

    Round 9 - Xanthrawl - Level 15 - Zolf - Legacy of the Fallen - Ghallanda





    2nd attempt. 1st attempt made it to the end fight. Champ Shadovar disintegrate to the face, dead. Res, rebuff, try again. Nat 1, disintegrate to the face. Dead 2. Killed everything, just boss left. Server locks up. Come back dead #3. Ressed out quite certain I would have finished had the server not screwed me.

    This attempt was more smooth, but took a bit longer. 1 death, which was caused by server lag again (Ghallanda - you're all surprised, I'm sure.) I was fighting 1 mob, when suddenly I couldn't move. I kept shooting, and periodically tossed myself a heal, but to no avail. When the server finally caught up, my stuff didn't register, but the mob attacking me did. I was too far in to call it quits by then, so I used a cake to res and move on.

    The end fight was the only real challenging bit. The Orc guys were easy. Pull a few, Blade Barrier + IPS = Win. The Ice Elementals weren't bad either. They are slower to pull, so it was a bit more of a pain, but not difficult. The Shadovars were stressful. I knew from my first run that a Champ Shadovar (and probably a non-champ as well) disintegrate failed save would be death. I invis and scope out the scene on the mountain top. 3 champs, 1 normal. I tried to pull the normal guy first, and by himself. I got him to half when a champ Shadovar comes storming down the ramp for me! I have no idea how he aggroed onto me, but I had to deal with it. I took them back to where the temporary ethereal shrines are. I tried to use the walls for cover, ducking out long enough to shoot, then retreat. I had a few close moments still. The Symbol of Stunning hit me, and I had 2 Shadovars, 1 Champ, both decide to try a disintegrate. There was nothing I could do but pray to the dice gods. Thankfully, they smiled upon me and I lived. Once I got the non-champ down, it was much easier. Still only 1 bad roll away from disaster. I was able to get the last 2 champ Shadovar individually. Amskar was easy. He was on the far side of the glacier. He just threw weapons toward me while I ranged him to death. He eventually moved around and began casting, then teleported back to the far side. He died before he made it back to me again. :-)

    Round 9 - pjstechie- Level 15 - shamgarjr - Lava Divers- Khyber




    This challenge wasn't as difficult as it sounds. Lots of running and shooting took care of most of the quest. Once I moved outside I did fall through the glacier leading me to run to certain working areas to kite/kill.

    I did run into a little trouble with a pack of Orc battle clerics in that they were healing each other faster than I could kill them. Archer's focus turned out to be the key to overcoming that hurdle.

    The end fight was mostly a matter of finding the non respawning mobs that needed to die and pulling them with as few extra guys as possible. The shadovars were dangerous but ultimately turned out to be a non-issue. They did use disintegrate but i mostly dodged it and saved the rest. I was also able to get a lot of shots into the main boss before the final phase so when a mob of orcs came I was able to single him out and finish him off without dealing with the orcs...a nice bonus since I was already up to 2.75 hours...

    And yes I totally cheeseballed the flight pillars.

    I may not have patience for this. After 2 hours, Amskar at 40%, 3/4 pillars down, game kicked me off and did not allow me to get back until the quest reset...

    Maybe... maybe tomorrow. :-/

    Round 9 - Cesarblack - Level 15 - Cesarbrown - Omnipresence - Ghallanda

    Just slapped a cheap repeater off the ah in and an int item into the starter gear and went for it, nice easy run but took awhile since I didn't do any real gearing.

    Default Round 9 - Dodoroq - Level 15 - Urqhuart - The Silver Legion - Cannith

    Suffice to say my third time ever to the quest (fourth if I count the failed yesterdays attempt), and no, I didn't know what to do. Two detahs are falling while pink screen... luckily guildies knew and advised. Deathcount - spent about 40 minutes kiting the orks and killing the mages, then tried to kill the orcs. Another 30 minutes evading elementals and killing Shadar-Kai.
