Truly Naughty Troop Newsletter – Edition 25 – 21st July 2004

These posts are archives of forum / blog entries I made on my EverQuest guild website. The website won’t be around forever, and I wanted the posts all in one place so I didn’t lose them, this blog seemed like as good a place as any.

1. Introduction

So there were three patches in the end, but things have settled down, and we're left with zoning pets, sellable LDON gear and a whole bunch of funky new stuff.

So, who's up for a bunch of Veeshan Peak keying, and some elemental toughness XP'ing?

The newsletter is not a replacement for the board, and more often than not will just summarise something and provide a link - so, go sign up and take part - pub21.ezboard.com/btrulynaughtytroop

You've already signed up to get the newsletter, obviously 😉 , but I'd like to encourage you to get your guild-mates to sign up as well. The more folk signed up the better. E-mail addresses will be kept private, and will only be used to send out this newsletter on a weekly basis, so it's safe to sign up. Spread the word!

If you feel like contributing something to the newsletter, or have any feedback on it, please drop me a mail at tnt-newsletter@darkstorm.co.uk and I'll see what I can do.

2. News

PoF - Torelian bravely led the troop north from the Fear zone in. Yes, north 😉 Still, after a wipe and a recovery, the troop broke in fully (going west), and proceeded to wipe the floor of Fear with the trash. Sadly, no mini's or bosses up, but still, breaking in is an experience and a useful tool.

Shawl Walk - Daiggo's shawl walk went very well, thanks to everyone who made it. It was successful and Daiggo is the proud new owner of the 8th shawl.

[Know someone who dinged something significant? Let me know - I'm not always on (no, honestly) so sometimes don't get to see dingage]

3. Upcoming Events

As a general reminder - include the time/day of raids in the subject heading of your post, and always start a new post when talking about a new raid or event. People often don't go back to check modified threads, and they will miss posts which don't include dates/times in the subejct headings.

4. Zone-mania

From Moonebeam,

Favorite zone: Tower of Frozen Shadow
This zone has something for nearly everyone, and as a bonus, is often empty. (No KSing! YAY!) At the moment, it is the "hot spot" for levels 30 to 40, so has a very large experience bonus for those levels (not certain of the exact numbers here).

Each floor of the zone requires a key to proceed, but also has a place to zone completely out of the Tower. Only one person in a group needs to be keyed for each floor, and if you get a key to a higher floor, all lower floor keys are automatically added to your keyring.

All floors have undead on them, so Necros, Paladins, Clerics, and Shadowknights are very useful here. The "trash" mobs drop up to 8 plat each, as well as various other drops that sell for decent cash. Once you get to the 3rd floor, some very nice mid-level gear drops from several different mobs. The fifth and seventh floors drop velium commonly, from small pieces all the way up to blocks.

All in all, this is a great mid-level experience zone, and a great high-level farm zone.

5. Help Wanted

From Muldian,
I need to see if someone can help me set up a raid for posky. I need to kill the Essence tamer for epic drop (Swirling Sphere of Color). I dont have much raid exp. and not sure if i can lead a raid so please anyone willing to help me send me a tell in game pls.

From Moonebeam,
Tradeskill items Moonebeam is in need of:
Spiderling Silk
Velium (made into studs if you have the skill, otherwise any will be welcome)
Arctic Wyvern Hides
Vials of Clear Mana (Will pay the cost - 300p per stack, or supply the emeralds and poison vials)


Send me stuff to include in this section omg!

6. Help Offered

I am once again offering up Moonebeam's tradeskill prowess to assist the guild. If you would like something made, simply bring me the bits and I will attempt the combine for no charge. If you do not have the bits, I will have to charge bazaar (or merchant, if the bits are vendor bought) prices for the bits. Again, there is no fee for the combine attempt.

Skill levels are as follows:
Baking - 250
Brewing - 200
Pottery - 239
Fletching - 200
Blacksmithing - 200
Tailoring - 204
Jewelcraft - 200

Please note, for Jewelcrafted items to have any stats, the metal must be enchanted by an enchanter. I am working on leveling up a toon for this purpose, but as of yet, can enchant ONLY silver. Also, if you need an imbued gem, make sure you have the imbued version and not the plain version. I can imbue Emeralds, but no other gem.

Let me know if you'd like to see any additional sections or content, and if you have any content to contribute. The best way to get content into the newsletter, is to post it to the boards, and I'll pick it up. If you like, send me a pointer requesting it be added, but the board is the first place you should stick it 🙂
