Just a recomendation. I have done and failed this one twice. both on hard. Unless there is a specific loot you want there - but want this spell line completed might consider doing the norm.

HOWEVER ---- I oddly enough might be avail to play this. For hard - you will need to have GREAT pulling - the pathing and mob assist dynamics in this zone are quite "fun."

The 3d lay out of the mobs in some parts of the zone and density really is a challenge to pulling - Brikksx played many deaths to pull - we did pretty good with a ranger tagging pulls far away from the group - but pathing and assist range can be a bitch in this zone. The fights on hard are not actually too rough - it is just getting the customers to the group that is a challenge.


If you MUST start as late as midnight - might be a challenge finishing hard this quick. IF possible considering a 10 PM EST start might make a potential 5 hour mission completable. No joke the 6 hour mission made it to 5 1/2 hours before my group called it a morning once on this mission. IT can be done faster however with less deaths on pulls and with a lucky good drop rate.

All that said - I am potentially avail as early as 10 PM EST thru midnight EST to play this - and as it turns out I still need this mission completed.

I'll probably be on, wouldnt mind pulling it for ya. Only done it once, only had to do it once, did hard and got it first time. Our group was me pulling, shaman healing, BL tanking, and other odds and ends lol. But nothing to take lightly, its tough and pulling is key.

I've played around a bit here and its easy to snare pull and then zone out. Let the adds path back and Bob's your uncle....takes a bit more time, but works no problem. I didn't have the DPS with my half group to actually stand a chance at winning (although this was a about 4 months ago). The mobs regen wicked fast.

oh and iirc nothing sees invis

Yeah so the strip club. Threw us out at 1am. Sorry guys I didn't realize I would be out so late.

Had to take Zyzz to his first trip to the strip club before he gets married.

A worthy excuse ;)

I've got class tonight (raiding anyhow) and then I go away for the weekend. If I can't hop on tonight I won't be on again until Monday.

So much stuff to pack for the trip gah! Hopefully I can swing it all!

yah - you are fired.

but at least I got to chat with rae and make fun of you. The one day I arrange a date with a man in game - and he blows me off for zyzzer. hah hah.

oh well I kept druids entertained while I farmed tani that Healing focus V item - Which BTW is the first time I have found it campable in hte last dozen times I checked

FYI - Stoneskin which drops the item isn't a particualary RARE spawn - but the problem is that the PH spawn for it doesn't always spawn after every patch. Stillmoon is a freaky zone like that - after each patch you never know which PHs will be up or down. c razy.

Oh yeah the only reason I wanted to do hard was for:

Blood Fire Signet

MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO TRADE
Slot: RANGE
Charges: Unlimited
AC: 12
STR: +12 STA: +9 WIS: +12 INT: +12 AGI: +12 HP: +190 MANA: +200
SV DISEASE: +20 SV COLD: +20 SV POISON: +15
Required level of 70.
Effect: Insanity (Must Equip, Casting Time: 2.0)
Recast Delay: 720 seconds, Recast Type: 3
WT: 1.0 Size: MEDIUM
Class: CLR DRU SHM NEC WIZ MAG ENC
Race: ALL
Slot 1, Type 7


Insanity is an 1,100pt. nuke.

Also, the Hard caster reward is:

Hive Silk Cloak

MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO TRADE
Slot: BACK
AC: 22
STR: +12 STA: +14 WIS: +19 INT: +19 AGI: +13 HP: +195 MANA: +195
SV FIRE: +20 SV DISEASE: +25 SV COLD: +20
Shielding: +2%
Required level of 70.
Focus: Preservation of the Dead
WT: 1.1 Size: SMALL
Class: CLR DRU SHM NEC WIZ MAG ENC
Race: ALL
Slot 1, Type 7


Preservation of the dead is 15% mana preservation on detrimentals (cap=70)

Granted it wouldn't replace what I am wearing now but only because of the 35% fire focus on my time cape. If I can get another 35%+ fire focus I could switch capes.

chest drop on the first loot? neato.

Welp - good luck luring some other suckers to wait for you next time :boxing

However, I am actually ramping up to FULL rotation ops now - so looks like i will be dropping off the face of Norath except for raids I can get to late! woot! GO ARMY! which was prolly why I was excited about doing a mission with my dran man!\

From my chat with deg and yosh - who IIRC had done both - memory of the differance was that pulling and mob fights were not significantly differant. THe only diff is that normal doesn't have the charming dudes... which is negligible IMO _ so go go Hard mission - just need to alot up to 5 hours in case the drop rate and pulls screw you over. At least for you next set of suckers!! :spank

This is typical fashion for Drannor. Not real reliable with timing. Also, you need to take Zyzz to a whore house before he gets married. Not something as tame as a strip club.

I would have brought him to Nevada for that Goof ;)

Didn't have the scratch.

Serano man, sorry! I hope you forgive me, my deeds were noble! I put "maybe" in the title for a reason =)
