Taking the new guys out for an adventure was pretty fun. We decided to revisit Delera’s tomb on Hard difficulty and filled slots with two new players. Now I am sure they felt very reluctant till they realized..”Whoa your all guildies”.
We entered this dungeon and ofcourse me the stupid barbarian forgot his way around. We enter the tomb and from the outside it didn’t look so big. Hearing Gary Gygax’s nerdy voice DM part of the beginning made me cringe….dunno what terrified me more….the undead or his voice. Well we mashed our way through with ease..new guys trailing us tanks. We really made this look very easy.
Later into the dungeon we hit a rough spot…first to die was me. But That was all my fault ….we open the door to a long stairwell leading deeper into the crypt. No mobs just open wide path down…I felt there was traps so I decided to barb it out. That means I hit Rage and Unccanny dodge…and said “Fuck it” and ran down…. Unlike Indiana Jones, Every Blade trap binged against my Adamantite Armor ….it sounded like a sword fight but the sword was the size of a Lincoln Town car and I was the chunk of metal getting Binged….6-7 blades across the head later….Im at the bottom of the stairs (guildies laughing at me) with 70 out of 137 hp left ….I felt like I accomplished something. Survived a swarm of killer traps.
Letting MY guard down 2 Wight Priests and 2 Armor Wights decide to unstealth and nuke the holy crap out of me. I try to back up to be in repair range of Thelkar…but I got in range alright and it was right ONTOP of the blade trap.
This time it critical hit me and knocked me down to 2 hp. Boy was I in deep shit .
Now after I get raised and we continue forward. Mecca and I mow down almost every obstacle with great support from Odraek,Glow and Thelkars nukes and holds and repairs made things go smoothly. Undead bane weapons for the win !!! Too bad I broke my mace 75% into the dungeon.
Was a great night …it ended in a Helmet fashion show outside of Wizardly show of House J lol…spent an hour exchanging head gear to see who looked sexy in what helmet lol.
