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 .
