Not long after I found HC I saw someone calling for a Sewer Trial team, and I jumped on it because I really wanted the badge.  The person who started the team didn't know what they were doing -- IIRC they also hadn't been back for long -- and they ran it with the wiki page open to see what we should do next.  Everyone was very patient and good at following directions and we got it done.

I'd never done it til my SG ran it as a speed run practice about two weeks ago. We were obviously all IOed out etc and the Hounds are excellent at letting you know what to do. Think it took us 8 minutes 😂

 

Not sure much of that had anything to do with me though. I just chased people and Fulc Shifted as much as I could.

That was me, wasn't it?  And you and everyone was kind to me and very patient and yes, we got it done and we had fun.

 

If it wasn't then my memory is worse than...well, than I remember!

 

Of course a year or so later and I am STILL stumbling around aimlessly. Oh well, LOL.

Yes, I think it was!  Everyone on the team was like, yes, I've definitely run this before...eight years ago.

 

I did a Lady Grey around the same time, and no one could remember how to defeat the weakened Hamidon.  Another triumph for Paragonwiki!

Well you had my back and were the soul of generosity and patience, and everyone else was on board with that. Made my first forays back into the city worthwhile.

 

Although you're also semi responsible for my AE addiction thanks to me experiencing Zombie Ninja Pirates!

I still can't get past Aeon at lvl 54 in MLTF. Bastard kills me every farkin time.

  • Haha 1

Well... at least I couldn't solo a +4 Aeon in the MLTF with my sd/em tank. The 9 +4 AVs before him weren't an issue, of course.

I still haven't gotten a Defender, Controller, Stalker, or Dom past the low 30s or an MM or squid past the teens.  And I only got a tank to 50 on live by making one for a static team, so I couldn't let her sit in the teens like all previous tanks because I just didn't feel like playing her.  VEATs were on my "never got past the teens" list too until recently, but now I have a widow in the 40s and I'm really enjoying her so she'll be 50 soon.

 

Never got around to soloing MoITF either.  Tried once, the autohit fluffy killed me, tried again, killed the auothit fluffy, learned that it's the fluffy dying that stuns you, not Rommy rezzing, haven't gotten around to trying again.  You may now revoke my Scrapper card.

I've been on teams doing that and done if once or twice myself, it's not a bad tactic at all.

It's a lifesaver.  Especially for something like the Sewer Trial or LGTF, where the odds of figuring out the strategy in reasonable time are quite low.  And in my experience people are usually pretty patient.

Other stuff

 

Sentinels. Still stuck mid 20s with a Beam/Elec. I don't see the point. Yay. I have an armour set I don't really need, at the cost of meh damage. Why don't I just run a Corruptor with nice buffs I can apply to myself? Pity cos I love the Cossie I made for him.

 

Peacebringer : I have a level 50-but-not-played-much Warshade but never even started a PB.

 

Ive also never played the final arcs of Villainside. Might be worth trying.

Hah. I love sentinels. I prefer ranged attacks, and the reliable status effect protection is great. I'm okay with trading some damage output for damage protection. I now have a sentinel for each primary set. I'd like to get all of them to 50 eventually, doing story arcs solo.
