Valdi turned her first werewolf today! It was pretty neat. Luckily the other player knew where to go. I could not remember since the guy who turned Valdi brought her to the shrine, she didn’t have to find it on her own.


Oh wow, that is awesome! Misa hasn't gone to the shrine yet; and no NPC has come up to her to start the quest yet either. It has been numerous months since I first saw her tainted blood; so ... pretty sure she will stay in this in-between place until I decide to push the issue.

Rader (as Evelona) and I (as Laurie) went and broke the stalemate Laurie had had with Sharpfang at the Bramblepatch, and then did all the other WB's in Deshaan, because we were on a roll. The Guar was a tough one, and the Abomination was reluctant to die, too, although he wasn't doing any real damage himself. For the others, we had passing assistance, so they're harder to judge.

Rader's machine didn't crash, despite his expectations, so maybe it's gotten over the 'flu, or whatever it was.

And again, I didn't get any screen-shots. I need to write that on a sticky note somewhere. biggrin.gif



QUOTE(Acadian @ Feb 20 2020, 11:43 AM) *

Haha! Acadian tried soloing Sharpfang long ago. Darn troll does little damage but regenerates health like a, well, troll. And Acadian is very much a pure tank - nearly unkillable but very low dps. The best either could do to each other was make each others' health bars wiggle betwee 97-100%. With no end in sight to the stalemate, Acadian gradually dragged Sharpfang back to where the troll reset and ran back to his spot. Glad you and Rader got some bosses done and also glad that Rader's puter may be doing better.


Well, unfortunately, my computer went in for surgery yesterday evening. It did work out surprisingly when ghastley and I went WB hunting and when Grits was online talking with us, but I knew I couldn't keep it going for much longer. I checked the computer into Geek Squad at the Best Buy nearest me and--SURPRISE!--it got yet another BSOD as the guy who was taking the computer was checking it into their system. It's projected to be ready by Monday afternoon, but it could possibly be done before then. So we'll see what they have to say then.

Sadly, this means I won't be online until then. The silver lining is that I should be getting it right after the huge February 24th update ZOS is rolling out. I would like to get that last log-in reward, that Flame Atronach Bear, if I can just to have it.

Darnand (I am not a necromancer) Penoit and Cat Man Dhou did a couple of quick delves to warm up, and then attempted Darkshade II as a duo.

After 13 minutes of stalemate against the Transmuted Hive Lord, and several attempts to resurrect Darnand, we broke off, and he reset. For the next attempt, we called for help after about the same amount of time, and finally finished him. Total time for the second round was 19:25. CMD was doing nearly 2k DPS! On the other hand, he could self-heal (using Dark Cloak) as fast as he was damaged. What I never managed to work out was how to keep that heal up for both of us.

The others were easier, with the larger team, and we did finally emerge somewhat victorious, but VERY tired.

What a struggle! Darnand got plenty of rest lying prone under the bridge, yikes. When we got to that final room with the levers I remembered that I had been there before, and now I have finally realized why I didn’t recognize the first part of the dungeon. Someone had called for help when a player dropped out and brought Jerric in toward the end. I’m pretty sure that I’ll remember it now! panic.gif

ghastley, I hope your hands aren’t in braces today! Whew!!

I've been resting my hands doing Murkmire dailies for the double drops of the Tribal Armour Chests. Unna can do one at Root-whisper, and the rest just do the one in Lilmoth.

We have half of the Elder Argonian motif, and slightly fewer chapters of Dead-Water. And because a lot of those mean a run from the wayshrine to Tsofeer, we've gathered scuttleblooms on the way. Lots of Honey and Alkahest, but no tame one yet. Any idea on the drop rate? Spreads NEEDS one. biggrin.gif

The event crate has given us three Grave-stake, and one Voriplasm fragment, so when the max ticket limit hit, bought a couple more pieces of Voriplasm trap. Leveque would like to keep one in his basement.

After the rest, it was back with Grits' crew doing FG1, as that was Maj's pledge for the day. I think we did it five times, with different combinations of characters. Apart from almost forgetting to pick up the pledge the first time, (MUST PICK UP THE PLEDGE!!!!), we successfully added another Velidreth shoulders to our collection. That's seven so far, without getting any Mighty Chudan at all.

I did get in a few runs of Murkmire dailies, and we got another piece of Grave Stake, because we want Voriplasm. There are enough days in the event to get the Voriplasm with tickets, so I'm not worried. The Hackwing Plumage is useful for Murkmire furnishings, and hard to get any other way. The only motif chapter from the reward crates was a duplicate of a duplicate.

But I enjoyed everything except the RNG. kvright.gif

Before I brought my computer in to Geek Squad again today, I brought Evelona out to Cyrodiil this morning and last night. She is not getting involved in the Alliance War (I am a Pact supporter, after all, and even though I am not strongly trying to roleplay it doesn't fit her character to get into it). She's just out to discover locations and clear delves in the Standard campaign since I have the Alliance Locked campaign set for Cincy. It was actually kind of interesting to see Cyrodiil through Covenant eyes...

Which brings me to my first question: Why the Oblivion does the Covenant get way cooler gate bases than the Pact? At least the northern Covenant gate. The layout looks way more interesting and an enchanter's tower is pretty cool from an aesthetic standpoint. The Pact gates look so lame and bland in comparison. I bet the ZOS designers for Cyrodiil are Covenant sympathizers!

Continuing on Cyrodiil brings me to my second question: Has anyone else run around in Cyrodiil the past few days and noticed map locations completely disappearing when you discover them? Both with and without the Destinations add-on, doesn't matter. Really strange and kind of annoying. It must be because of Update 25 because the timing is awfully convenient, but maybe it is something else.

Hoping to do some more quests for Dumbledore Aquilerios this evening. Does the Main Quest ever get you out and about Tamriel? So far, it's been limited to Daggerfall and Coldharbour.

Depends on what you mean by about. MQ is all Coldharbour-related, while the parallel Alliance one works through your alliance's zones in sequence. So after Glenumbra (Daggerfall's zone), you'll move on to Stormhaven (Wayrest's), and so on. The MQ was originally in step with your character level, and aimed at one MQ quest per zone. So you'd be doing Daughter of Giants at the same time as you start Daggerfall, then Chasing Shadows would be just before you moved on to Stormhaven. That one has a piece where you enter Daedric realms from town. The rest (IIRC) send you via portal, so they don't relate to zones much, and they took the level-dependence off the MQ with One Tamriel.

I see what you mean. Just made the trek to Stormhaven and now I'm heading back to Daggerfall. Guess I need to just roam Tamriel as an intrepid explorer!

With the event winding down, I'm working on crafting. Clark is gathering skyshards to put skill points into Smithing/Clothing/Woodworking and Laurie is doing Master Writs to put more stations into homes. Blossom now has a full set at Mournoth Keep, and we'll put them in Gardner House next. Those were chosen for proximity to wayshrine and Rolis respectively. CMD may get the remainder at Sleek Creek too, as he currently only has Equipment stations.

Pulling in the writs will mean re-starting dailies for thoseof the crew who do a Bolgrul delve, and where still applicable, mount training. We generally use Sleek Creek for that, as the round is well-clustered, and not far from the house. However, we have the Nix, and the Vivec apartment, too, so I may experiment a bit.

While everyone was off having fun with the Murkmire event, I gave Stefan a break from campaigning his Silver to start my new toon. Rescues Guars in Trees has been making great progress since I started her, and thanks to Grits's help she has leveled her Undaunted skill to claim the Necrotic Orb as the last skill on her destro bar. She finally leveled up enough to get the big dungeons from Maj (she has been doing the daily delves from Bolgrul since joining the UD). This morning before I left for work Grits was kind enough to take warden Jerric out and run Banished Cells I with Rescues for her first pledge. One more delve with him put her at level 5 and she claimed the Necrotic Orb. She is still leveling, but just put on her last set of sub-CP gear yesterday and is on her way to leveling out of it. Maz will have to get cracking on making her final set.

Level 46 going on 47 now, and looking forward to grouping as healer!

ghastley - Good luck with the crafting. I love Elden Root (Snugpod) as a 'base'. It has everything but is a bit spread out. But, hey, it's a TREE! I've often thought Sleek Creek or Flaming Nix are good candidates as well.

Rider - Wow, Rescue's come along well! I'm glad to hear she's making good progress as a sorc healer. Between Matriarch, Orbs and Resto Staff, she should have a good healing tool kit.

*

Buffy ignored the Murkmire event. Though she loved Murkmire, there was nothing from this particular event she wanted and already had 12/12 event tix. I think Buffy is settling down a bit on the focus of her variants. The magic and stamina (bow/bow) variants in Templar, Sorc and Warden she finds quite enjoyable. We have pretty much retired the magic and stamina Nightblades since she finds them less fun. And, having learned what we wanted from tanking, Acadian is resting as well. So for the time being, we think in terms of 6 active variants and 3 that are resting. All training is complete except the stamina templar archer still has some horse training and Undaunted ongoing for awhile.

Laurie has been busy converting Master Writs into more crafting stations. We now have the full seven at Hunding's, Daggerfall Overlook, Mournoth Keep, and Gardner House, and partial sets at Sleek Creek and Domus Phrasticus. The latter will likely get the remainder of the set, and then she'll move on to putting them into Ald Velothi, down in the basement area.

Cat Man Dhou is unsure if he want the other four stations, as there's not a lot of space he's prepared to give up. We might shift the dog-house where the Fennec live, and place another tent there for the consumables and jewelry. It needs a PTS session to play around with arrangements, and that's waiting on the next copy.

Since Blossom did all the Wrothgar stuff and became Hero of Wrothgar, Minx has been itching to do the same in Morrowind. She's now got a few remaining quests to complete the Adventurer achievement she needs, and then all(?!) that remains is the world bosses.

Can I count on some help when we get there? I'll most likely combine this with doing the WB dailies, to help ensure some other players turn up, so it could be all in one session, or one a day.

We were delighted to discover that doing the first World Boss as a daily quest counted toward the Grand Adventurer count, so that was completed as a side-benefit on the first one. With Cincy's and Jerric's help (I think it was the Kjellingson variant, but they all look the same to me), Minx is now officially Savior of Morrowind.

We may forgive the spelling, even if she does feel slightly cheated of a letter. tongue.gif

As soon as we get back from Vvardenfell, Cat Man Dhou remarked that he heard about "dragons - in this one's own homeland". Apparently he'd like something done about that.

Taminwe wants to go to Summerset, where there's unfinished business, too.

It's all Blossom's fault. tongue.gif
