    Shadow Lair Snarbolax After Action Report

    Post  Cleverpun on Sun Jan 08, 2012 2:16 pm

    Me and a party of 3 went into SL snarb today, and emerged victorious Very Happy

    Only one knight had been there before (Shenanigens), but I've known her a while and she helped the rest of us through it wonderfully. Fullmtl provided the key, at no cost. Phantom-Reaper, the fourth member that Shenanigens got from her guild, was reckless and died often.

    It was challenging, difficult, and a little stressful, but also quite fun. Felt quite accomplished after each level had finished. And the unknown passage is creepier than candlestick keep by far.

    And thanks again to everyone who gave me advice in my other thread- the equips I chose made a difference.

    Time elapsed; Emberlight to core took around 2 hours.

    Lag spikes; 2 or 3 minor, one DC per level, and some larger, game altering spikes near the end of the passage.

    Total Revives; I lost track, but Shen's rez cost was at 1000 when I was searching for people to revive near the end. I Revived myself once for 80, and Fullmtl's last rev was 160.

    Equips used;

    CotF
    RSM
    DA
    Magma Driver
    BTB
    DBB
    BTS

    Switched to heavy demo suit and VPS for the passage.

    Items made; Mercurial Demo Suit and Snarbolax Coat



    Bonus fun fact- I did a T2 level shortly after, and was shocked by how non-lethal everything seemed >>

    Yes, it is a well known fact that once you do something scary like a shadow lair, you see everything else as "Bunnies" or less scary Very Happy One of my friends did a shadow lair and now he can solo vanaduke, its magic. No upgrades as well not even different gear

    Her counter was AT 1000, I don't think she actually spent that much on a revive since I didn't see the giant rev animation for it... Shen is rather CE-rich, so she didn't feel the need to restrict her CE revives to TPKs only, but I'll definitely concede it might've gone better Razz
