After a long week of marking exams Friday morning finally gave me the free time to live up to a promise to visit Antall with my Arete ordermate Feitt. Feitt’s a fairly new player, though he has had some family exposure to the game 🙂
Since I was on bright and early I went ahead and mapped the Shadowshark maze, and started trans’ing characters through. If you’ve done this, you know that this can be 5 minutes or two hours and while I feel totally confident that this could be scripted, it’s a little nerve wracking to leave characters on autopilot in a shifting maze with aggro creatures (well, you know, if you move into the wrong room). I had expected Feitt fairly early as we had made loose plans but he worked a night shift and I ended up waiting quite a while. Turns out in all that time my main thief didn’t feel like trans’ing anyway so I used the time to start adepting things on my ranger and paladin’s slists…
If you’re waiting and you know it just spam armor, a-dept! If you’re waiting and you know it just spam bless!
… well you get the idea …
We finally got together and got a messy kill in on McManus for a normal set and that was all I had time for given that it was pick your kid up from daycare o’clock. 🙂
Things to remember in the future … spelldowns are your friend, don’t hit McManus with a character with a heavy weapon and strength problem because poison and weaken are gonna ruin your day.
