Title: Quitting + Thief Stuff Soloing
Post by: Heo on February 09, 2018, 05:35:40 AM
So, today I got home from work, assembled some nice prep, and got ready to solo Terzaks.

Ended up getting it to awful but died in a spec-lag chain.  Oh well, lots of deaths. 

Except, I can't CR, because the 4d4 and replacement gear that I keep on my other chars were completely wiped out.  So now no good way to CR, and all the stuff I'd compiled zapped.  No limit items on there, all solo popped, but decided to wipe it all out.  So, it was a good time to call it quits I think, but I really do question how much this has improved the game?  I realize I wasn't targeted specifically, but as someone who doesn't group or have a clan, not a lot of great options.   Sucks.  I've DTed plenty and lost sets, but this is just insanely frustrating.

Anyways, just wanted to make that point, on a shrinking playerbase, all that really accomplished was making a guy who helped out newbies and soloed a bunch quit.  Because he had stored a bunch of non-limit stuff that it took a while to accumulate.


That said, I really did enjoy my time back on Arctic.  I made a healer, but healers are totally worthless with Shamans or healing cloud druids I think, so was bored, plus, didn't have time to go grouping.  Later made a thief, Qwerzareqwexe, with the intention of being able to play when I had free time on the side and explore all the zones I never really did while I was in clans.

I highly encourage people who want to learn zones to make a thief - what makes them truly great is their ability to snag a ton of prep fast and not need that much eq.  My thief just had a 4d4 +2dam stabber that's fragile from a place and armaboro set + a nice prep item or two that were no rent. 

Really they are fantastic because with legend fade they can get anywhere, regen rank + regen eq, dodge, etc.

I ended up soloing the following, with just prep and mostly naked eq besides 4d4 prime.   Hopefully it encourages others to explore/solo some zones:

That plus tons of prep that thief was able to scrounge up quick, would usually have a bunch of darkness scrolls, stoneskin, enlarge pots, AMS, mirror (for stabbers), rabbit bone, steelskin (though sometimes I questioned how effective this was), rescue charmies, 6-8 heal pots, fireshield/lightning shield/iceshield, resist magic 50, lim dam, +tons of regen.  Mobs like Cupelix that were no_stab took quite a while, but with lim dam and envenom could get their damage pretty low.  Prince of Dargo was obnoxious with those stupid bubbles.  Biggest risk was mobs with nasty lag specs like Samus or with a bunch of bashing/high damage minions (like Ombra).  Armaboro was a really good set for doing that stuff.  Also, I died a lot if got hit with bad luck on a bash or other lag hit. 

I will admit that I did multi to do storms but only because of the stupid feature that can't be done by thief but can by lvl 1, but for some reason had issues with Steel keywords, so after Romis had to bail.  It was tempting to multi legend healer with animate + thief, but never did, but if I had I'm sure could have done way more epic stuff.  Thought about pking (or at least sneaking in and healing some mob like Soth), but liked most people too much. 

Also, legend dodge + 28 dex + kender is a big win, lots of mobs would whiff on spells/bash/hits.

Looks fun, but I get addicted to games far too easily, I'm sure that would destroy my life, haha.

If I were to ever do another wipe on arctic, my move would probably be to quickly create a kender thief since they can pretty much get unlimited coins/prep in a short time, then make an evil dargo basher and go after the haste rank.  Haste + legend + legend bash -->  32 rp, plus ring ranks for can_fly/dev invis/sustenance/+2 dex
