Drakie Death Squad
By now I’m sure some of you are in the level 30 area and hopefully have had an Abyss fortress. If you don’t want to spoil your first experience in one of those fortress instances, I suggest you change the channel, err page.
67 mobs sure does not sound like a lot when you get that quest to clear out the Right Wing (insert whatever number for the other two fortresses). Then you get in there. And perhaps the first night it is not so bad. Perhaps.
By the second or third or even fourth night, you’ve had it up to your eyeballs in glorified Abyss grinding. Yes, it’s safe from evil Elyos attacks. Yes, it’s essentially free AP. Yes the experience and kinah are good. But it’s SO monotonous.
The first 15 minutes might be somewhat fun, but once that timer runs out and chests go Poof! you’re left with, plus or minus, 35 mobs that still need killing.
But, did you know? Those Pesky Drakies that hit for 1 damage are possessed! If they land a critical hit on you/your party member/your healer basically, they hit for 3,000 damage. Check your HP. Be prepared to set up a Drakie Death Squad to deal with those Pesky Drakies or your healer(s) will die!
Trust me, your healers will love you for not letting them eat a Soul Heal bill.
Were you planning on informing your groups? Legion? Did you fall for it?
Trust me, it’s an excellent way to pass the time, you’ll be rolling on the floor laughing so hard you’ll cry. Especially if you’re on vent with someone who believes that they really are saving you.
“Watch out! Drakie incoming behind you!” *they leave mob alone and run full speed for the killer drakie*
>.< My screenshots for this are on a computer in another country. Dang it. Was a flock of drakies chasing me hehe. 😉 I’ll work on getting a new one next fortress run.
