Doc.Awesome: Dream Literature

leave a comment »

Last week, I finally replaced my lame [Bloodsoaked Orb] with Nacher’s [Dream Literature]. Thanks to the guildies that reserved it for me.

Dream Literature: finally a better offhand than the Bloodsoaked Orb for Doc.

I’ve also gone with 3/4 T2 accessories and two new T1 trinkets for mana regen since I last posted Doc’s equipment:

I had 450 souls

with 2 comments

I received advice from both ςhadow and ToraCina!! to buy the new soul accessories for the set bonus and relative ease of acquisition rather than going straight to the T2 recipes. Sadly I already spent 450 souls on a [Handbook: Antelucan Blood Fog’s Legguards] before I asked for advice and I only have like 1 [Essence of Saithion] on Col.Awesome. Ironically I have more on both Mage.Awesome and Doc.Awesome, despite running way more desert dungeons with the Colonel. I am what they call a dumbass.

On a positive note I found the image above on this awesome blog called My Dumb Mind Creations. It reminds me of Hyperbole and a Half. One of the dumb creations is a comic about PUGs. Pretend it’s not about the dogs but pickup groups and it still works!

Tasty Rolls: Cookies and Symbols

with 2 comments

A few days ago I rolled on a Raj cookie and came out victorious. This was my first cookie; I was pretty excited. I consumed it over Rahjil’s dead carcass and began Praying for forgiveness.

I was about to start the soul daily routine, but Prince called, so I crossed into PVP territory to check things out. Within minutes I joined a Swamp of Wyrms-style Prince train and we dominated that devilish bastard. I rolled a perfect 100 and claimed my prize. Edit: I should probably mention that the last five or more times that I fought prince, I came away empty handed.

Col.Awesome: Sunsaya Crossbow

with one comment

Back on January 31, 2012, I ruled out repeatedly farming RKL for the [Sunsaya Crossbow]. After the last update an epic soul weapon vendor was added, placing the bow within reach for casual players like myself. Roughly a month of dailies later, I acquired enough souls to purchase the bow.

So how did it feel? Well these two photos summarize it nicely.

Holy shit, was that amazing or what?! </sarcastic> Look honestly it was sort of a let down. I don’t know what I expected, but anything more than what happened would have been nice. For example, when you beat a single level in Peggle, fireworks and rainbows fill the screen and Ode to Joy rings ceremoniously in the background:

Immediately afterward I flew to Vega. I popped an agility scroll, sneaked into the pavilion, Rapid Shot’ed a mage, and wound up my heavy hitter– Snipe. I missed the crit, a random sin appeared in front of me, and he absolutely destroyed me. Is that funny or what?! With only a few minutes of game time left, I flew to Silence for some quick dummy tests. I dropped another agility scroll and managed a 3940 snipe with two [Biting Rings] equipped and no monk’s blessing– OK but not fantastic. I really need to gear up this dude.

Speaking of which, I was on the receiving end of a very generous gift from a guildie a few months ago and I forgot to mention it on this blog! I blew an [Essence Of God] on a [Reinforced Conciliation Magecloth Robe] in a trade with a guild member in exchange for a [Reinforced Devil’s Dagger]. He said that he’d have it for me a few days later, but he left our guild the next day and I never heard from him again. So he more or less stole 50 runes from me. A few days later, one of the best guildies of all time crafted a [Reinforced Devil’s Dagger] and mailed it to me! This most generous gift was totally unexpected, and El deserves many thanks!

So here’s where I’m at on Col.Awesome ([Black Lotus] is not appearing for some reason):

Here’s the full gallery of [Sunsaya Crossbow] snapshots.

Thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point. Cheers to the past and the future, my friends!

One more day, four more boring-as-shit soul quests to run. The [Sunsaya Crossbow] is in my sights, baby!
