So far I am still up in the air about raids. I enjoy the strats and learning to do these properly. But, I also hate the fact that I have been on about 8 so far and had ZERO drops for my class. It feels like drudgery with no rewards.
Luckily I recently found out a storyline exists for each of the raids (and some have multiple reasons to return). There are quite a few as well. I am on the Tier 1 schedule, so until I get some armor I will be stuck with 3 of them.
The good news is I will add a 4th raid this week as I just received a quest to be keyed (basically like a token to get into this 4th raid). Once I have downed one of these tier 1 raids again, I can get into the #4 raid.
Here are the ones I have been on so far.
YakhmarA large Ice Worm who lives in a cave in a group of mountains inhabited by Mammoths and Snow Leopards along with a multitude of BEARS (man I hate bears).
As you enter, you are greeted by an ominous glow coming from deep into the cave.
Once we enter, Yakhmar is awakened
VistrixVistrix is a powerful Dragon that has plagued Conan's kingdom for some time. It seems the warrior bandits of Atzels attempt to awaken this slumbering beast for their own devices. They hope to use it to take down Conan's shining Aquilonia.
The mighty beast is summoned.
KYLLIKKI (all instances of the word KYLLIKKI fixed courtesy of our resident Fin, Copra!)KYLLIKKI is a powerful Mage that summons minions to aid her in battle.
KYLLIKKI is guarded by many undead soldiers and champions that require specific methods to defeat. Each is tackled singlely (even with multiples of them attacking), as certain magicks used by these wizards can stun many of our more powerful members, and render them useless.
Once we enter, we prepare for KYLLIKKI's arrival within her tomb. The strategy is harsh, as certain members of our party must be prepared as she summons ghostly wolf like creatures.
The battle commences as mighty warriors keep KYLLIKKI at bay. Other members of the group pull the ghostly wolves and take them out.
The same method is used for KYLLIKKI as her undead mages to make sure she does not escape using sorcerous powers.
KYLLIKKI is defeated!! We are victorious.
That is it for the tier 1 run. As I stated, raid #4, a dungeon I have found out becomes available upon being keyed, and I plan to run this key quest so I can start working on this new raid soon.
Conan is the first game where I feel dedicated enough to actually continue to try these runs. So much so that I took the plunge and joined a dedicated raid guild. We will see how this pans out, but I feel renewed in my efforts at least.
Thats it for now. Hopefully this week I will have the FINAL Destiny Quest story to reveal!
