Secret Monday: Eternal Damnation

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted anything. It’s not that I haven’t been playing games, because I have, it just didn’t feel like I had anything new worth posting about. Plus, with the Holidays in full swing, my brain is otherwise occupied.

The last two Secret Mondays, previous to this past one, have been dedicated to getting the last members of our little cadre through Slaughterhouse. NKL-107 still makes this a very painful process for us, but I think we’ve now got it down to a mostly predictable fight. Last night we took a break from Slaughterhouse, though. Fire Team Alpha ran Ocho and Syp through Ankh, and Chucho’s Roughriders (yeah, I’m taking ownership) then ran Ocho through Hell Eternal.

From what I heard over Team Speak, Fire Team Alpha had pretty much a cake walk through Ankh, and Chucho’s Roughriders one-shotted every boss in Hell Eternal (including that bastard of an angel at the end). It was, by all accounts, the smoothest Hell Eternal run any one of us had ever seen and I was proud to be a part of it. We all worked like a well oiled machine: Rowan rocked the heals, Grace, Mark, and Ocho brought waves of pain to the damned, and I managed not to get anyone killed … mostly. All in all, loads of demon smashing fun.

To round out the night Mogsy, Mark, Grace, Rich, and I decided to head into Nightmare Polaris (while Ocho went and gave the Gatekeeper what’fer). I’m not sure whose idea this was exactly (RICH!), but lordy, lordy that place it trying. In our defense it had been several weeks since last we’d visited the Nightmare realms. I think once we get the last of our little group Nightmare ready, so we’re doing these dungeons on a regular basis, we’ll have much less trouble.

POL1 caused a lot of face-meets-keyboard moments until we got back into the swing of things. We then ROFLSTOMPED POL2. POL3 gave us more headaches, mostly in getting Mjolnir’s Echo impaired so we had enough DPS to get through phase 2 fast enough to spare Rich the healing pains. Eventually we brought him down, though. POL4 was a cake walk, and then we tried POL5. Good God, the adds. We called it a night after a handful of attempts.

It was loads of fun, both the Elite runs and the attempt on Nightmare Polaris, and a welcome break from Slaughterhouse. For most of the night I sported my Hillbilly Agent outfit with the new hunter’s cap available in the Item Store. I believe next week we’re back in Slaughterhouse to get that finished up for Syp.

    Last time I was in TSW we finally got my friend past Oscar and then advertised to start an 18’s group in #noobmares, but got no nibbles, so we went and ran a Scenario instead (platinum, but there were 2 of us and we ran solo normal as the difficulty, so. . . no biggie). Then we got out of there and advertised starting a POL group and got 3 more complete noobs. I ended up healing, the tank did her best and 3 starting dps who were all, well…. noobs. . . (it was a definite noobmares run. . lol)

    We managed to scrape through to POL5 without too much trouble, and we got him down to about 10K hp a couple of times, but just couldn’t quite do it. Ah well. It was still fun, we got 5 bullion out of the night, plus people got purple drops, so. . . it was all good.

    Then I bought Skyrim on the Steam Sale and um…. what other games exist besides Skyrim again?

      ROFL! The exact same thing has been taking up my time. Damn Steam and their Skyrim sale!

    Really sad I can’t join you guys. *glares at timezones* Shall have to find myself a little cabal when I’m able to actually run the game. ^^

      Yeah. Stupid international date lines. You know I’m quite often on during the day in my time zone. Ping me if you see me on. Chucho, ZRow, or TheKnack. πŸ˜€

        I know, we’ve chatted a bit before. Have your peeps on my little list. ^^ Trouble is, my laptop seems to run the game at maybe 2fps, or it feels like that. And I’m being generous! So waiting on my PC because choppy game play in TSW is reeeally not fun. You have Jaedia friended though, right? πŸ˜€

          Yep. I sure do. On all three alts. πŸ™‚ When is the new PC due?

          • Jaedia December 18, 2013 12:54 pm 

            Err.. it’s up in the air at the moment as my dad’s PC builder has some really really crazy stuff going on, but may be settling for something from PC Specialist will see. Next few weeks though. πŸ˜€

            Cool! Hopefully in time for Tokyo! Also, I think the Christmas event may be starting this weekend.

    I won’t have it ready in time for the Christmas event. It’ll probably be ORDERED this weekend then there’s build and shipping time to consider, plus postage breaks around Christmas. But yeah, almost finished in Kingsmouth! ^^
