Anguish IV: A New Hope

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.

Well you turned out! 53 live and willing players turned up for our fourth run at Anguish, and our last official TNF raid before our three week break. Thank you for making it! I felt sorry for Keldovan as soon as I saw we have 53 folk there, I mean he’s never really caused any issues, so having another two groups of people wailing on him was always going to be painful for him, and so it turned out! Jelvan was sweet, smooth, almost trivial, we’re getting better with off-tanking group setups and the two extra groups of DPS really make it smart.

And so it appears that Ture is to be our nemesis, often considered the easier encounter, twice now we’ve made it look hard! Still you pulled through and beat it without needing a full wipe and it keeps us fresh. With Ture down Hanvar is never an issue, and although our Arch Magus fight wasn’t as tidy as last time it was never at risk.

And so on a day where I felt sure we would have a good shot at the Overlord, he pulled out a bug from his bag of tricks, charged the raid the instant AMV died, pathed back and closed his little hut. So we decamped and killed Yar`lir instead.

It was a great turnout, we got some cool loot, and I hope we can do it again after our break many more times.

As I said in my last post below, Txevu and Tacvi lie ahead of us, we need people to continue to focus on getting Tipt/KT keyed, Qvic keyed and Txevu keyed to keep numbers up while inside Txevu/Tacvi. We won’t be doing much stuff in Txevu (low return vs. risk) but we will be playing Tacvi as often as possible to get some nice weapons and other toys.

See you all in three weeks, don’t forget Zerblag has already scheduled some stuff on the TNF off-days, show up, give her your support, get some loot.
