    • The Epic Completionist trek continues!  Lessah is level 22 and a ranger.  I LOVE IT SO SO MUCH!  
    • Mythery Inferno Completionist, how close are you to 30?
      • Mythery ran VON 5-6 on her Gnome!  Does this mean we can play to whatever level she is?  
    • I heard a rumor about Sahba Jade that she is a Dev and that’s why her characters do so well. (She plays in god-mode.)  


  • Rumors, News, and Lies
    • First up, a lie – Sahbajade STILL makes Lessah pug
      • Speaking of pugging, did Lessah pug?   
        • Tweet about pugging to Sahba Jade, I was apparently soloing Sorrowdusk Island slayer.  And not pugging.  (Sahba Jade has spies everywhere watching me!)  
        • So much pugging, I joined them, I ran them, it was all happening.  It’s so easy as long as I know where to go!

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!



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!  





  • All Things Mythery:   (theme song by the amazing Bonniebew!)


    • Mythery Says:   Firewall is a cantrip.  (In where I now make things up about Mythery!)  This means she can cast it as many times as she wants with no cost of mana!  We will petition the devs to make this so!  
      • Myth:  Why am I last?   Me:  Because you are the prettiest.  Myth:  Oh.  Ok.  
      • Me: When Mythery Cries the World Cries with her.  Myth:  That’s why it rains so much.  
      • Mythery is an uncaring master.  
    • Mythery Thought: Why did my warlock have all of the pretty robes?
  • In a special Ask Mythery!  
    • The Damsels use their influence to get a special spell named after Mythery!  
      • Lessah’s pitch:  The Mythery Bomb – Kills every mob in your line of sight that isn’t a red named instantly, and uses all of the mana in your bar.  (for balance) You are not allowed to cast spells for the next five minutes, even after shrining.  
      • Sahba Jade’s Pitch:  Mythery’s Moonbeam
      • Myth’s Pitch:  



  • Mythery – All your kills STILL are belong to me.
