  • Doc Talmin dinged his 300th AA!! Whooooosh - WTG!

  • The raid night on Monday brought a strike on Overlord Banford Paffa in Crypt of Decay.  He went down very smoothly on this second try and there were NO deaths -- WTG CoN!!  Serril reports that "we were actually waiting on waves to spawn..instead of last time where they were spawning on us and we weren't ready.... When paffa turned overlord and it was called in raid...The correct mobs were ignored and people went on paffa faster than lightning..."  CoNgratz to Juruvaiel who received a  Festering Earlobe - nice stats but ewwww!    Special Thank You's to Tuven for pulling!

After Paffa, we Champions moved onto Bastion of Thunder yet again... and stormed Auliffe's tower with great success.  There were again no deaths, and a number of good drops.  Serril reports that "tonight we progressed rather quickly through SE Tower and Auliffe.... Pulls were smooth, kills were fast...and I do believe that was the fastest we've ever gone up SE to date. Our skills are certainly improving vastly... Soon we may be able to do 3-4 towers in the course of one raid night."  BIG CoNgratz to Yankei on his Ornate Leather Tunic Pattern which will make a VERY SWEET  Wanderer's Sylvan Tunic.   Also to Laod on his Greatstaff of the Four Winds, to Reverend Ortilyan on his Glyphed Rune Word, and to Chenla on his Ring of Torden for Agnarr access. Special thanks go to Laod and Tomal for pulling the SouthEast BoT tower.. excellent job!

January 19

  • Sunday brought two attempts at the Plane of Nightmare Hedge Event, for which we were 1 for 2.  After the first romp around the Hedges, Thelin declined to enter the Hedge with CoN for a second go-round.  Big CoNgratz to all newly flagged for Terris Thule, and condolences to those on the second attempt.  We may be trying this again next weekend for those who were unable to complete it.
  • In a mighty battle on Saturday, we bested Klandicar and added yet another mob to our list of Rotations.  As you can see from my logs below, after Kland ate several of our pets he quickly succumbed to our fierce attack.  In his dying breath he asked that we burn is body at the stake.  A request that we willingly obliged.  

[Sat Jan 17 15:47:56 2004] Klandicar has become ENRAGED.
[Sat Jan 17 15:47:56 2004] Seanus`s pet has become ENRAGED.

[Sat Jan 17 15:47:58 2004] Jantik has been slain by Klandicar!
[Sat Jan 17 15:47:58 2004] Klandicar says 'I hate wasting food, but when the food comes looking for a fight, what can you do?'

[Sat Jan 17 15:47:58 2004] Klandicar says 'I hate wasting food, but when the food comes looking for a fight, what can you do?'

[Sat Jan 17 15:48:00 2004] Klandicar's corpse says 'Well now, look what you have done here! Dead I am, as I knew I would be, if not a bit sooner than I would have liked.. But a rotting carcass upon the ground is no fit end for a Dragon. Grant me this boon, take my heart and hurl it into the fire in the Necropolis, so that my ashes may fly free.'

  • With a little help from Edhelorn, Seanus made himself a Grandmaster's Medicine Bag.  WTG!!

  • Another successful BoT raid was hosted by Serril on Sunday Jan. 11th.  Serril reports:

Thank you all who attended the SW/NE tower raid where we took down Eindride and Brynju. We had an enormous turnout.and even got people into the zone with the 85/15 rule for non-flagged people on raids.

This raid was also very notable because we took down Brynju on first try. No wipes.. no rethinking strategy.. he was as good as dead when we zoned onto third floor .... Brynju opens the door to us getting some more gear (bp's) for Rangers, Rogues, and Shaman...where in the past we've been getting leather and plate types.

I want to thank the pullers of floor 3 (Tslaneesta, Carin, and Laod) for making this even easier to do.

Brynju... CoN has placed you on the hitlist! Prepare to die again..and again..and again!
