Had a very productive night last night.
Soloed Gieremund twice. I have Raider's Bonnet +1 already, but I need Lancer's Seals so I pulled him the first time just to try it. First attempt was very smooth, didn't go below about 70% HP ever in the fight. Second attempt was anything but smooth. For some reason, he was very accurate on this one, and very crit happy, wow. So it started in on me, and I am trying to get shadows up and apparently I didn't get far enough away from the other hounds because I get a link from blood aggro. So I switch off Gieremund for a minute to take care of the other one right as Gieremund uses howling. I try to erase it with a catholicon, but paralyze eats it, and now my shadows are down. Ni recast isn't up yet, so I am desperately trying to cast Ichi while sitting at 77 hp. Yeah, that is right, I had 77 hp left. Paralyze procced 3 times while trying to get Ichi up with both hounds just whiffing away. killed the link and got lucky on a healing elixer II, and went back to business on him. Ended up with a charis seal for my trouble. Was fun as **** though.
Tracked down T2 VNM and happened to have dagger for blue !!, so picked up Agasaya's Collar!. Now to decide if I should use agasaya's or Soil/Flame for WS.
Later, I had a friend that is farming Fistule out in Konschtat, and I went to join them. At one point, we went to check to see if Turul was up, and sure enough he was. Pulled and dnc started to tank. Sam gets Blue !! on first WS so I am getting really excited!. Once blue wears off I throw out a cyclone to see if we can find red !! and red !! procs. Sam and Dnc went down to some front conal attack, so I am tanking the mob. Fortunately I had prepared for the possibility of tanking him and had gotten Atma of the Ascending One and Atma of the Zenith. Biggest scare was one time when testign to see if it still had spikes up I turned around and double triple attacked him. Went instantly from 2.2k HP to 400 HP. Whm was on top of it though, and everything went well. And now I have a shiney new Loki's Kaftan! :D
