    Open battlefield

    Quest8 gem5 sword of light (shadow)
    Pre raid?*
    Back at monastery to assemble sword


    Raid1 gith queen 31
    Gith fortress
    Guildship assault
    A battle with a wizard queen and her brood
    Of three red dragons
    A host of undead with silver swords

    Raid2 tiamat 32
    Pit of five sorrows
    And a revealing of the five headed queen herself
    Tiamat
    And her den of five dragons
    And consort

    Raid3 dispater 33
    nine hells
    And then to the nine Hells itself
    To confront dispater, an Arch devil
    And his legion

    All to save the Gish


    Notes1
    On the progression
    2-2-2-2-1-1-1 and 2-222-111 and 7 and 33, and 11
    Raids at 31/32/33 make 35 top. Natural is to conform to +3 or level.
    So a 33 running 35 is only +2
    The intro middle and end is a harmonic octave
    Natural to raise max level to 33.
    The true legendary levels.

    Notes2
    I prefer no Poe.

    Notes3
    Thunder and lightning were used in this creation.

    What's with all the Doctor Johnson, Lynnabel? You're not admitting to an English lit degree I hope?

    The phrase itself is not banned. It depends how it's used.

    cant bro, im already at the top, after getting over everyone else.

    his plot or whatever i didnt read, its besides the point. theres no way theyre releasing that much content, and a new race, and a new class. and sentient weapons and lvl 30 dont make sense at this point. why would you do sentient weapons to just replace lgs? maybe when they need a new cash cow, but this soon? and lvl 33...just so many reasons... id just leave if they actually did that. worst idea by far right there. like honestly, its scary.

    That quote is not in this post (dumb stuff)... Are you putting words in my mouth?
    Or at the least taking things out of context?
    Not appreciated. Please don't do this again.

    There is an octave and a curve fitted to this progression.
    The notes were intended as mystical, my take on the insight of the numbers.

    This is my way of saying what I think a legendary arc would look like: gith, Tiamat, dispater, and travel to the astral planes. And the Hells.

    A little story.
    Back when I was younger and running a campaign in the forgotten realms, I had my players encounter the gith. I believe it was a module from a dungeon magazine, but I heavily modified it.
    It was as epic as they could be, and they loved it. They were not high level (that campaign got up to 12th? Level), and it presented challenges to them they had never encountered.
    What I recall is that the gith were worthy opponents, set in an exotic location, with wondrous treasures. They completed the quest and had stories to tell.
    How often do you get to travel the astral planes?

    So when this news broke, I did my research (it's all in the wiki) and looked at what I thought would present the greatest challenge. This conclusion brings in a new race, new class, and introduces something over the top for those level 33 challenges: sentient weapons.
    Seems the general consensus is that LGS is a fail. I know I don't grind for it, rather loathe it actually.
    So yes, new shinies are in order. A carrot on steroids perhaps. Something to keep us at cap.

    Now, I think what I offered may be beyond the teams ability to produce. But I put together in a cohesive mix, trying to offer the best of what I heard might be on the table.

    This is what I would die to play for at endgame.

    This is the context in which it was banned. Simply click the "report" button and move on.
