There should be fireworks going off. 20 always felt special. Like a handshake and a gold watch. 25 is just like. Okay- congrats, now begone. But my tank is 25 and I have most of the gear I set out to get and I’m working hard on everything else. I have the Min II cloak, and I managed to pull Nightmare (Citw) and I’ve already unlocked Unyealding Sentinel and almost legendary and now I’m working on ranger one so I can jump to Druid. There’s a method for the madness – I want rejuvinating cocoon and I have already added Magican training as a feet.
That will allow me to cast 12 SP worth of okay healing. And with Unyealding Sentinel I can use the 150 HP AOE heal 4 times (it regenerates). I can easily hit myself for 300+ HP so that part is pretty good. Plus in unyealding I also get good and holy to all weapons. An excellent way of be able to break most evil critters DR.
And I tell you; doing some demonweb stuff on EE truly challenges your ability to stay alive and having a dedicated tank with lots of AC and PRR (something like 131) helps. I readily remove about 47% of all incoming damage. Enough to feel comfortable doing EH and challenged and alive doing EE.
I put that to test this weekend for sure; did EE second Eveningstar chain (Drow city), did EE Battle for Eveningstar (that one was tough) and Rift and Deal. Tho the group matters more then induvidual components. I had the pleasure of running some of these with absolutely terrific players. I mean some of them made the entire ordeal feel like nuthin’. And in some cases we didn’t even have pure healers – we had a Druid (VERY good Druid to be added).
So that leaves me with the dragon one, 3 of the first Chain, Trial by Fury and the worm one to do on EE. Not really the absolute hardest ones – the worm one can be, the Dragon one shouldn’t and Trial is doable without optionals. Among the first chains only Battle for Eveningstar is the true challenge – the rest are hard but can be winged with less then a great PUG.
My aim is of course to unlock the planar set for some more damage and most of all moah PRR.
