Fun Solos from Last Wipe + Thief knowledge
« on: July 18, 2020, 06:14:49 PM »
Hey all -

So last wipe I ended up making a rank 50 kender thief named Chani. 

I quit after a bug in the Omen Quest that zapped me and was pretty frustrating, but the reality was that I didn't have time to be playing because I run a company and our team has started working on launching something that requires all my attention.  In other words, it was the right move.

Today I got a message from a guy asking about thief

That said, I truly have enjoyed my time on arctic more than any other game, and figured I'd post a fun log a week of some of the stuff my thief soloed.

I generally didn't group with anyone, and used Cleric, Shaman, Mage, or Druid to be the support char for thief or hold a zone.  I didn't have amazing EQ, very few +dam or anything else, but I did prep pretty well, and it let me explore and knock out quite a few zones that I had always wanted to when I played back in high school.

I'll list some of them at the bottom.

Anyways, I'm going to start trying to drop a fun log a week, feel free to post your own.  I won't reveal any secrets, and I'll just stick to some of the more important fights.  But again, I don't have elite game knowledge, and I didn't have any impressive weapons or eq, I was just really good at prepping, setting up good macros, etc.

Feel free to ask any Q's on general thief stuff, happy to answer.

-------

*Note - most of these I did, but I had some of these crossed out and the ones I hadn't gotten to not crossed out, but copy and paste didn't work with strikethrough, so just assume I got to most of these, and it doesn't include a lot of the stuff that I did but didn't update like Ravenshadow, etc.

First log - Celestial Valley (Evil):

https://www.dropbox.com/s/b4f52zgal50vmus/Chani%20vs%20Celestial%20Valley%20%28evil%29.txt?dl=0

Was one of my first times doing this zone, brought my Shaman with me to help hold it and pull me out if I was in trouble, but for the most part this was just lots of fading/evenoming/and prep.

It was also related to a game quest I needed for another char.

With just a thief CV is actually a relatively quick zone.

thanks for sharing! Just curious, what ranks did you buy for your thief?
I have a Kender thief with similar stats.

It wasn't just the ranks, it was also the attuned medal that I think I had full too.

The ranks if I recall were:

- Haste
- Nightvision
- Fade
- Backstab
- Dodge
- Envenom
- Regenerate
- Legend

+

Medal:
- detinvis
- senselife
- invis
-sus
- canfly
- 2 con
- 2 str
- 2 dex

And for fun, here's a quick one of me soloing Bakali

https://www.dropbox.com/s/nrakz741507oxpj/Chani%20vs%20Bakali.txt?dl=0

This can be a bit dicey at times with stabbers, but it wasn't too bad.  Lots of secrets in this zone I don't know I'm sure.

why would you buy haste with adrenaline rush?

Yeah - that's the question I figured I would get.

The reason was because the main way I was dying was lag - bash lag, etc.  Adrenaline rush is great, but it would last for too short of a time, and as you can see with my logs, my fights would go for a bit.  Haste gave me extra chances to envenom, increased damage significantly, and reduced all the lag over time.  So died much less.

So again, the reason is because adrenaline rush doesn't last long enough.

That said, I definitely died by accidentally typing adren a couple times.

What’s with the random 2-3 round random lag you get after skills with the haste rank?

Oh. Seems like sometimes you are moving like you are hasted then sometimes you slow way down even slower than normal skill lag. It’s pretty inconsistent. Not sure what the deal is. Maybe I’m just broken.

Ah, yeah, I'm not sure, but I think that's a combination of a few things - specifically it cuts the seconds of lag, but that could still be 1 round or 2 depending on when in the "round" I was bashed.  I also think there might be some legend bash npcs or something, but who knows.

Here's a log of my thief the wipe before last wipe doing Lunitari. 

My thief the wipe before was not ranked super highly, so didn't have haste, and we couldn't use 2 players, so all of this was completely solo.

This was my first time doing it, I got much better, couldn't find log of Luni King, but who cares really.  Didn't do void beast, mainly because I don't know that part and it seemed very likely to be a DT for me.  Did battle group, Cupelix, and Avatar.

This was a very quick fight against Morathian.

As some point out, the more difficult play is against the guards and getting there, but I decided to leave that out.

Long log of Chani vs. Ravenshadow.  There's a lot there that I haven't figured out yet, so unfortunately wasn't able to do everything. 

Reza/idiotic body guard was annoying as hell as healers generally are for thieves.

Chani vs. Physix

I know there's more to this zone, sadly I never was able to explore it fully.
