This Secret Monday our main Tank and her husband, the main Healer, were off galavanting around Martha’s Vineyard or some such (seriously, they aren’t allowed to take vacations anymore), so I once again had to drop into the roll of Tank. I feel like mostly I’m more of an Armored Personnel Carrier, though … I might be mistaken for a Tank from far away, but, good lord, I ain’t foolin’ nobody up close.
Rowan dropped into Heals and did a hell of a job considering he threw his deck together moments before we stepped into Hell Fallen Elite. Syp, Sctrz, and Ocho brought the pain with their DPS and we did awesome so long as I wasn’t losing aggro and letting people die. We even one-shotted the Molten Golems, where we usually wipe several times. The Engine Tyrants, however, gave us quite the bit of trouble … my greatest challenge there seemed to be grabbing and holding aggro on the first pair of adds; I’d scoop them up and then one would teleport away and kill Rowan. After about 15 tries, though, we got them down.
The last boss only took us three tries, and I’m still convinced there was something I was not doing. I don’t recall there being that many electric bubbles the many times I’ve DPSed that fight. I tried impairing Electric Smoke Grenade, but that didn’t seem to do much of anything. In the end I think it was the DPS that pulled us through that fight, slaughtering the boss in short order before everyone died. I actually died right after the boss because I couldn’t find my way out of the Electric Bubble Maze (which, by the way, is the name of my new band).
Still, it was an awesome night, and we got Ocho and Sctrz one step closer to facing the Gatekeeper (not to mention snapping up a sweet skin for Syp’s hammer). In honor of the upcoming re-release of The Cat God quest chain, I wore my Cat God t-shirt, Templar jacket, black jeans and boots. Since you can see the outfit up at the top, I thought I’d throw in this screen shot I grabbed earlier in the week. Seriously, I don’t understand the folks who say The Secret World is an ugly game … what screens are they looking at?!
They saw Kingsmouth with all the fog and Draugr and it’s not the best looking area, imo. But I love how things look in Egypt and Transylvania and in the dungeons too, for that matter.
I had hoped to be able to meet up with y’all last night, but IRL got in the way again. Such is life.
My latest post on TSW is here, in case you care to check it out.
I honestly love the look of the Solomon Islands. Of course, I’m a big Lovecraft/King/Poe fan, so I dig that dark, foggy, evil thing from the sea infested look. 😀
But yeah, Egypt and Transylvania are gorgeous.
I have a great shot of those damn electric bubbles that were gutting us. And I believe we took the final boss down on the second attempt? If not, then I totally forgot an attempt in there. 😛 You did a great job tanking, and I don’t think you could’ve helped those endjinneers teleporting away to attack Rowan. They’re just jerks. 🙂
Funny thing is, in the pic, I’m wearing the Tyler Freeborn t-shirt. Gotta love wearing TSW shirts in TSW. 🙂
LOL I couldn’t remember if it was 2 or 3 attempts so I erred on the side of me fucking up. LOL
I think I should have moved him better or something to try to avoid the death bubbles. I’m going to read up on it at some point. 😀
And yeah, rock in’ the TSW shirts is the best!
[…] Syp, Rowan, Ten Tentacles, Scooterz, Mogsy, Maric, and the rest, I owe you […]
