So it took around 40 runs to finally get the sword of shadows. I had the shard, scroll and seal for months just waiting for the sword to drop.
When it did arrive it was the dice gods that gave me their divine intervention. We completed VON 6 on Epic Elite and I raided the 4 chests and was about to recall when someone offered the sword for rolling.
Weirdly as I typed in /roll d100 I knew I was going to win. After all this time it just felt right. Sure enough I won the roll and boy did that feel good.
I have since bought a meteoric augment (had to use shards but was a bargain at a price of 12 shards) to beef it up and it is awesome. Well worth the work and better than any Thunderholme crafted gear I have made. It crits on a 13 when buffed and damage is in the 000’s.
Now Radzax has the sword it has made him more fun in melee. I wonder if my Artificer could use one shame it’s BTC never mind will just have to farm another .
Well what a year it’s been. As I blogged previously I had a dilemma about leaving my sole guild, pleased to say I made the change and joined a friends guild. My own guild made it to level 60 and I have toons in that guild should I want to move back.
So having changed guild I have better buffs. This has been a great help in levelling Radzax. I have been playing DDO as much as I can. Still addicted after 8 and a half years. Radzax has heroic completionist (life 22 now), 5 iconic past lives and in the next week or so he will ETR for the 12th time getting me Epic completionist.
I would like to say some of this was planned but my buddy Kyloor and I have basically just raced each other every life to the level cap. It may sound boring but it’s more about the banter and the end goal than the quests and I must admit zerging is now our norm.
I always run as a caster and bladeforged shiradi sorcerers are my favourite. To get my ETR completion I have had to try new things. I am currently a PDK Paladin with my Epic SOS finally getting some use. I have to admit its fun standing toe to toe with Velah and other end bosses.
So currently at level 21 and zooming in on that final ETR ( I say final but will probably go for triple completion over the next year). I promise to get some pictures for my next blog. Thanks for reading and hope to see you in game soon.
