Last night I got my joyeuse! Although I wasnt present for the fight.
I got a tell from a good friend in game (dont wanna reveal his name unless he wants to for various reasons) that charybdis would probably be spawning soon (and there was no questionable play like in this story), and he asked if I would like his help in camping it. Of course!
So I head down there on SMN to help kill, and we kill the PH twice. About 2 minutes after we kill the second one, my gf comes home - thanks to the anonymity of the internet (although I did tell my friend) my gf came home and complained of having itchy poison ivy in her *** (we have no idea how it got there), and she insisted that I go get some topical cream with her at the drugstore (about a 5 min drive). I told my friend I would brb to go get this cream. Well, about halfway there she suddenly calls her doctor and I heard "I can come in right now!"
Also of note, I worked from home yesterday and naturally I didnt shower or shave. So I stunk like balls, and didnt necessarily want to sit next to someone with a stomach ache in the waiting room. Having someone vomit due to your ball stench is never good for the self-image.
Anyhoo, I was now an unwashed hun on a trip where I didnt quite know the destination when I got in the car. When we arrived, I waited outside and called my friend to tell him dont waste your time, I wont be back for at least an hour. When I called though, he told me Charby popped a few minutes after I left, the soloer that initially claimed him had died, and my friend was fighting him now.
After everything at the doctors was settled (my GF either has poison ivy or hives, I breathed a sigh of relief when I found out it wasnt a STD) we headded home. I got back about an hour and 15 minutes later, fully expecting me to be dead (I was resting when I left) and HPed back in Windy - but, to my suprise, my friends had JUST killed Charby! I saw they both passed, so I lotted and got my Joyeuse!
A big thanks to Chepeepe and my friend who was initially camping Charby. I owe them one! I have TH2+2, so I will try to help them camp a NM to repay my debt.
Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, I DID take a shower as well.
Now the big question remains: does the Joyeuse have a hidden effect of curing poison ivy of the ***? XD
