Those are some pics of the fun we just had.
The host is temporary, friend of mine :: just wanted to toss em up for the time being, so people could see.
We were lvling in laberenth of Onzozo, *flippin great pt btw* and all of a sudden someone Calls out "Narasimha!". So we debate it for a little bit, decide we'll die, but dont care, and Take on Narasimha for fun. We allied with 2 other groups that were there at the time, spur of the moment and just went at it. Everyone did an awesome job, props to the palladins for keeping hate as well as you did, and though we lost a couple people, most everyone lived and we took it down pretty damn good!
After we finished taking it down, we decided whatever party wins the lot on Narasimha's Hide would distribute the sales between thier party (just so everyone feels like they got something). Our whm Rawls won the lot, and we'll each get around 20k each, with Rawls getting a little extra for herself in the end ;)
So we gathered together and took some screenshots (sorry my narsimha pic is bad - was trying to stay out of range due to AOE max MP down spam). Everyone was pretty hyped that we just killed some NM we knew very little about, with an alliance that knew very little about how one another played. Was a GREAT fight.
So then IMMIDATELY after we break pt, our puller goes to grab another Torama to lvl off of, and Spots OSE. So he pulls OSE, and we fought to stall until the other parties could ally up with us (they were mid fight again already). They team up, and we all gradually take down OSE as well! Props to Nazy, who bit the dust from OSE when he tried to save our parties PLD *he only had half life from the fight he just came from, but our pld had about 10 percent*
We ended up killing it, and got *gasp* a whisker (murrr).
So, while no one ended up getting rich off the situation, and no one got thier nice gear they wanted; WE ALL GOT A GOOD TIME, and WE ALL GOT A GOOD STORY from it.
Whats the point of this thread?
I want to make sure that others out there, stop trying to Take NM's for themselves, and start teaming up. You would be amazed at what you can accomplish just by taking a chance with a group you dont know - and praying everyone tries thier best and does thier part.
I believe this is how most of the NM's were intended to be brought down, not so much a "call people from your ls, and ONLY from your ls" kind of attack strikes. Let others help, dont be shady, and Sure enough, you can do some amazing things.
Phoenix has been said to have a large ammount of people who refuse to team up to take something down. They would rather die, than risk losing a lot.
I can relate for some items that you might REALLY REALLY want/need, but for the majority of stuff, Go out there and make some friends ;)
Thanks for the fantastic fights guys, and props to everyone who participated (especially those who died for the fight *caugh* rawls *caugh*).
