Quick Update

Yesterdays’ post about “The Final Power” quest:

Early last evening Dufit went back for another try, or two at this Golden Lotus quest. His first death was barely 30 seconds into the fight. During his second corpse run, something good happened. Another player he had noticed earlier in the day suffering the same fates, sent a tell asking if he would like to group up for this one. Dufit gladly accepted, and then there were three (counting the warlocks’ minion:).

LOL! He still died again, but the quest was completed by the group. That was what turned the tide for this one, group effort. In turn, one managed to live long enough for the other to corpse run, thereby stopping the kill target from resetting to full health again. When alone, having to start over again each time was frustrating.

I had time to chat a bit afterward with the kind and friendly player that asked to group up. He’s not completely unknown to the horde crew, both Ay and Dufit has run beside him in TB before, though never really speaking to one another.

We talked about the many deaths we each suffered yesterday, deaths which neither one of us were accoustomed to. As frustrating as this quest was, it was also challenging. Before parting company for the night I mentioned to the lock that this was the second in a set of seemingly phased quests, and I could only imagine what the third one will be like!

Anyway, all ended well. If you happen to come across this quest I suggest that you jump in general chat and see if anyone else is on it. Don’t hesitate to group up. It will save you many moments of frustration 🙂 It’s not a big dps fight, most of it depends upon your abilities to get to his spears he throws out and throw them back at him. There’s a lot of movement required on your part, and timing your jumps needs attention. If you have a bit of lag or a slightly not so quick comp (like I do), and maybe your button mashing is a tad slow at times (like mine), be prepared to make adjustments so you clear that lightning. Otherwise, enjoy the challenge. It’s one of the best I’ve experienced lately (not being a raider).

    And here I was looking forward to getting exalted with Golden Lotus, now I’m not so sure, lol. Oddly I’ll bet I know who that Warlock is only because it really sticks in your mind when you run across a nice player as opposed to the not so nice ones.
