The Fall of Truth

First I’ll say that we did a pretty good job. Sahba was the only one that really knew the quest and then there is the little thing about there only being three of us. I guess the Stormreaver seems like an OK dude but he is very easily swayed by outside influences. I didn’t really pay a lot of attention to the play because I was watching Sahba and trying to figure out why she was running against the wall we were standing by. But I think the Stormreaver and Brawnpitts were having a little argument because Brawnpitts didn’t want to do this play since he didn’t get paid for the last one and then he just left.The Reaver started trudging away too mumbling something about needing our help and I’m pretty sure he said he had an infestation of some sort. But I don’t really know, like I said, I wasn’t really paying much attention. Then the floor fell out from beneath our feet and I was thinking termites, he must have lots of termites! When we landed I saw that it was definitely not termites.

First we had to take out 3 giants and 3 weird looking dragons. They were paired up too. I don’t know what’s up with the dragons and giants in here but they really weren’t too hard to kill. Then we had to break a big crystal thing in the ceiling. A crazy looking skeletal dragon blew a bunch of balls at me and killed me. That sucked but Lessah did a great job of demolishing the crystal while Sahba was killing the little minions and trying to keep the dragon from blowing balls of pain at Lessah. Minions! Sheesh, what a pain. Once the crystal was broken the Stormreaver decided to make an appearance. I thought we were helping him not the other way around. But it didn’t really matter since as soon as he got there the weird dragon managed to dominate him (see, I told you he was easily swayed). So now there were two foes for them to deal with. I’m not sure exactly what happened since things are kind of dark and fuzzy after a person dies but it wasn’t too long before Sahba and Lessah joined me on the plane of the dead. I totally think we need to try this again. Next time at least Lessah and I will know what is going on and what we need to do.

The Shroud

We got our three wolfy friends cuz apparently we only have three friends and decided to run the Shroud!

Part 1, called the challenge of the waning moons, is where we take out all of the portals before the monsters and portal keeper can over run us. Everything went smoothly ie. no portal keepers.

Part 2, called the challenge of the new moons, is where we teleport into a maze and kill all of the trash before we take on the 4 bosses located in the center. We got the orc, fire, orthon, and knoll. I  don’t know about the rest of them since I was on fire but let me tell you, creeping cold does an awesome job on fire!!

Part 3, called the challenge of the waxing moons, is where we teleport into a locked room that has a lights on/out puzzle to solve which opens the door. This needs to be done in a timely manner because the killer wall will appear and begin to travel around and around. We smashed it and didn’t even see that bad ‘ol wall. Yay! Right before going in to part four there is a skeleton that will buy things from you if your backpack is too full and will repair your equipment if you have managed to get yourself killed so many times that you are naked. He charges a premium for his services so you might want to consider how badly you need repairs.

Part 4, called the challenge of the full moon, is where we first meet Harry. Harry has fire balls, the delayed blast kind I think and meteor swarm and he is not afraid to use them. Poor Renty went down in the first round and in the second round…well….let’s just say when I looked around there was only me, Lessah, and Dash. I managed to hang in there for two more rounds and then Lessah and Dash had to bring it home on their own. I think it took about four more rounds but they did it!! We cheered like crazy!

Part 5, called the challenge of the lost moon, is where Harry has a lot more hit points than when we last met and also the awful blades. First we take out the 4 bosses again and then tackle Harry. There are little pools in the 4 corners that will give back hit points and mana for a short time but it takes so long to get mana back that way we didn’t spend much time doing that, even though Lessah and Dash were the only ones that got to shrine in the last part. This went much better than part four, Harry went down pretty quickly and we barely had any blades come out. After completion four portal come up along the walls and each one will take you to a different part of the quest, so any chest you may have missed you can go back for. We did. All in all it was lots of fun and I, for one, want to do it again! Soon I hope!

 

Loot

So, now you have gathered whatever you need to make your greensteel blank from doing the keying quests, here is where you get the ingredients to make your blank into something awesome. If you plan to make items to wear you will need to cleanse everything after the first one or it will make you sick. The cleansing stone will be an end reward choice on each 20th trip through the raid. If you are making swords, you can use two at once without cleansing to one of them.

Part 1/2- Shards of power, small energy cells, and small ingredients. These items are used for  Tier one effects and are crafted by using the Altar of Invasion.

Part 3- Shards of great power, medium energy cells (possibly depleted), and medium ingredients. Depleted medium energy cells can be powered by combining them with a weapon with a listed value of +6 or higher in the Altar of Subjugation. This is also the altar used to add tier two effects.

Part 4/5- Shards of supreme power, high energy cells (possibly depleted), and large ingredients. Depleted high energy cells can be powered by combining them with a weapon with a listed value of +8 or higher in the Altar of Devastation. For some reason this doesn’t work with Thaumaturgy weapons. This is also the altar used to add tier three effects.

Wolfpack Shroud was one of the more fun things we have done with our wolves.  The come from behind win was the best part for me, and stepping on the puzzle with four paws instead of two feet was highly entertaining.  (And the most challenging!)  I really want to keep going and see where this wolf-stuffl leads!
