An end to another era

Micki's Delirium

I’ve been doing the Saturday raids since 2012, back then it was mainly posting an lfm and running with a mix of pugs and ppl who joined often enough that I would consider them regulars. Later I started the EEraids user channel on Orien and through it managed to find some players for my guild who also enjoy raiding.

Summer of 2019 Titus said to me, “we should do more raids”, and I said I could add another raid night, which became Wednesday (see my first blog post where we ran raids both Wednesday and Saturday here: Raids week 128). As always I would invite guildies first, then ask in EEraids channel and last but not least post an lfm for any free spots. Quite often we’d fill just with guildies and channel members. At the time, Titus and some other Soko members would join my party – if…

Permanent dolurrh after The Mark of Death

Micki's Delirium

The Mark of Death is prone to giving you permanent effects. I see it almost every run, as we loot, someone has an effect from the raid that doesn’t go away. This can be permanent inferno, permanent water or as in my case – permanent blue fog effect. If you look at the completion of the mod run we did on Saturday, starting at 6:50 https://youtu.be/EWjqcpSlqJU?t=412 you see that I jumped back into the fog just as we completed and then the fog went away without giving me a chance to walk out of it – sticking the effect on me permanently (well, permanent until you die or log off). Most of the time, death removes the effect – why I usually tell ppl to jump in the water to clear it.

That’s all for this post.

When you’re a melee in the Dryad raid

Micki's Delirium

Cerge is currently on one of his melee lives, which this time is a barbarian. This is what most of my boss fights looked like last Saturday in The Dryad and the Demigod. I couldn’t say what effects causes this, though.

Raids week 215

Micki's Delirium

Raids 215 were Wednesday February 24, Thursday February 25 and Saturday February 27. The new raid in Feywild, The Dryad and the Demigod was released in update 48.4 on February 24. Amored unicorns and Feytwisted items were added to the loot list the week after on Thursday March 4 with update 48.4.1. This was not mentioned in the release notes, but quickly noticed by players.

Wednesday

1. The Dryad and the Demigod LN

The Feywild raid was out with the update just a few hours earlier and we were eager to try it. In our first attempt we didn’t quite understand the mechanics and failed because the corruption on the dryad reached 100%. We went back in with a bit of tactics and completed in the second try. Completing all the optionals gives a second chest. Loot: 64 demigod runes x2, 25 threads of fate x2, Bottled Rainstorm and

Thinking about the game, playstyles and endgame

Micki's Delirium

Every once in a while I find myself thinking about this game, why I keep playing it, what it has become and what the community has become. I think things are quite different now from what they were back when I started, but some things have remained the same. To me, the reason why I play has always been more about the community than it has been about the game. I also set goals for my toons a long time ago and I’ve more or less been sticking to those goals.

I’ve always loved running raids, and I wanted to try harder difficulties, which became difficult to do with just random pugs. So I created eeraids channel and decided to start doing eeraids regularly. Then Storms created Orien Raiding Discord, Titus helped advertise my raids, and things took off from there. I invited some of the regular raiders to…
