And grats on your skady body :) Recently started doing Salvage myself, and atm I'm just picking up free-lot 15s while i build up points. It's fun, though.
The salvage run last night was a story in and of itself. Apparently compared to the little rampart Nm's like gate widow, skirmish and zebra zahcary, peryton is very much like the original you would find in Valley of Sorrows, IE MEAN
O.o. This guy takes much less damage than the other rampart nms, and has a LOT more hp. His wing cutter does quite a bit of damage as well. We were low manning last nights run with only 6 people, and within the first 3 pops out came Peryton. It came and beat our faces in and dropped my freya's jerkin only to follow up with not one, but TWO more Peryton's within the next 10 pops. OH LORD was THAT fun. I had to use perfect dodge, and with the tragapons we quickly got overwhelmed. We ALL used our 2 hours as TWO MORE Perytons popped by the 40% mark. I saw hundred fists, soul voice, chainspell and the works. IT WAS AWESOME!!! I have never seen ACTION like THAT in my entire experience on a 35 piece salvage nm... never!!!
What's even more radical, in addition to the first Peryton that dropped my Freya's Jerkin the 3rd also dropped not ONLY a freya's jerkin, but the Marduk's level 35 leg at the SAME time. We got two level 35's from that guy, and at about 10% life remaining we were forced to demolish the rampart and retreat before we wiped due to no more HP MP and dead people >.>. And despite this we STILL managed to take out Long-Bow with only two of our 2 hrs from revitalizers with 2 minutes to spare, spammy homing missles and all. That was the best salvage night EVER!! Then I camped the auction for ingots and accidentally fell asleep, and only turned in the parts with 20 minutes before JP midnight hit so I got almost instant gratification. What a night indeed
Gah, now I have nothing on top of you anymore! Smiley: lol Grats. :p
Actually that's not true. I remember your Odin dropped you a N legs and you got hecatomb subligar before you did N head, whereas while I have my heca cap +1 I still had dusk trousers. It's been a while and I was planning to just shooting straight for N legs myself, but until you fight him it's hard to realize just how many Abjurations Odin CAN load, and with my work schedule I won't make every Odin. I'm expecting to "probably" get the paper by December, but in the meantime I found a nice little substitute. Now I'm poor again, but content.
That was most of the savings I had, so now I have to start almost anew. I left some money to craft with, but between the 12 imperial wootz ingots and those Oily Trousers, that took its toll. The consolation is I can resell my Dusk for 500k, but then when I finally DO get my paper I'll wanna try for another hq subligar. I sold my other cursed harness -1 (my second) months ago, which as predicted I got tired of looking at it and not being able to wear it. That puts my accuracy with no outside help at a whopping 386. Using greater birds as a gauge, that's 89% accuracuy on level 81 birds and 84.5% on level 82, averaged to 86.75 across the camp. I only wish I knew what kind of accuracy bonus you got for using dancing edge at 100% tp, but even when feint is down my accuracy is taken care of now, so that's pretty nice.
I also still need my Mirke Wardecors (using skadi's as a temporaty tp fix for now). Due to playtime and scheduling after wiping my first ACP 11 at 1% hp I never got a chance to redo it. So there's something else to do if I get a chance. Edited, May 31st 2009 6:09pm by Melphina
