Curadh de na Faolchu Donn

Intp's Blog

August 06th, 2020

The future in retrospect.

As a returning player after a 4 year hiatus, I'm extremely happy with the welcome that I've received from the Gaiscioch family in Rift.

I've tinkered with a few other games before deciding to come back to Rift specifically and with the exploration of the two expansions there has been a lot of cool content to play through but it's been the player base that has got me interested in staying!

If you are a returning player, please pm in game for any help or even if you want a 'grinding' buddy!

Good to be back!

    2 for 1 TD
    This was a a great 2 for 1 TD event. INTP tanking duty We formed up with El in command at our scheduled time and pulled in 1 pug and one friend. We got through but had a wipe on council. Short of that it went well. We dropped about half the raid upon completion but had enough who wanted to go again, so we pugged up the rest and made a single clean swipe of the whole instance, no wipes at all and did it in fast time...

    Shady lead us into a Nightmare...Rift that is!
    Shady lead us into a Nightmare...Rift that is! We got up to at least level 157! This put us half-way through the Guild quest to kill 1200+ Nighmare rift. We found a randomly spawned Nightmare rift and milked it for all it was worth! This gave tons of planarite which are needed for the Tennebrean Amenders, which are needed for Celestial Crafting and upgrades! Great job Shady! -INTP

    Full Guild run of TD on the spur of the moment! Exciting times!
    DC and LD tanked us through TD. DC provided guidance and tips for LD as he progressed through the encounters and he did great. We had some issue on the 3rd encounter that resulted in some instakills. LD and DC are working on figuring out what's going on with that...

    Thursday Night TD Runs with DC: Slow but Steady - Keep On Progressing.
    Slow but Steady: Wow, what a difference some practice can make. For the most part, other than some off tank coaching on the 2nd encounter, DC was largely able to just tank while the raid followed through on the mechanics and dps with little need for an explanation of the fights...

    Sharpening the Ax: Q&A with DC - Gear, Stats, Rotations, Planars Fragments...
    It is easy to get into a rut on a game your are comfortable with. You go to the places you always go, you do the things you always like to do...and there is nothing wrong with that. However, if you aren't progressing because you are not confident in your build, your dps, your rotation, your gear, instance/dungeon/raid mechanics or generally don't want to make a fool of yourself...

    After Action Review: TD Progression Group
    The family, lead by the patient and intrepid Eluveittie tackled a coffee fueled Tantric Depths (TD) run.

    Prophecy of Ankhket Expert Runs Guild Style
    DC aka Fiveofseven/Diablotcanine lead an intrepid marathon of Expert with guildies. A few of the finer points when you do DC blitz runs: 1. In Darkening Deeps - Run to the Bottom - Kill the Sniper mobs on the ledges - Kill the mobs that mass under the bridge - Burn bosses - Run all the way to the back wall of the Werewolf encounter, avoid drawing aggro - Run through the spiders all the way to the boss spider at the end, die in place SW and Rez - Stack on boss spider's behind - Drag all the slugs through their area all the way into the triple boss area, kill in tank order - Burn Scarn 2...
