Protecting The Youth of Viral Rage

Filed under: EQ2 — lishian @ 3:18 pm

Thursday nights are Writ and Heritage Quest at Viral Rage. This week, we started getting everyone through ‘In Service and Honour’ and at the same time we were doing some city writs. Thursday is the one night per week that we don’t go out looking for PvP. Sounds boring? Well, not really. Freeps love visiting Greater Faydark, but not as much as Antonica. There aren’t as many freeps there, but there are some — enough to make writs and the heritage quest a little more interesting.

The folks that were doing the actual heritage quests were geared horribly. Some were completely new to the game or server – so – they couldn’t defend themselves well against some well-geared freeps. We had two groups that started the heritage quest at different times (stragglers!) so a few of us that were done with the quest were running between the two groups so we could protect them from the 4 freeps that were ganking them over and over. It really made for a lot of fun and we must have killed that freep group atleast 8 times. They were pretty persistent. They even attacked out Youth Protection group even after I had soloed them earlier in the evening. Well.. anyway… our youth were protected, we got more faction and we have some happy guildies that didn’t experience multiple gankings.

  1. Deleted my ranger after she wasn’t even able to kill one non-heroic her level. Restarted as a conjurer… same mob, same level, no problems. Plus, I could make her armor with my Q fury, Tipa 🙂 Got to level 6 before I had to return to my bluebie server for something. Would have been more, but I had to make the armor, which meant more harvesting in sometimes-unsafe Oakmyst Forest, but there were no freeps that day.

  2. I saw you log off just as I logged on. Keen didn’t send the guild a tell this weekened. Maybe, he had a change of mind. I might be able to help you out with a few t1 rares. T2 rares have been, well, a bit rare lately.

  3. No point really in T1 rare armor when you’re heading to T2. I just had four yarrow sitting around on Tipa (fae conj is named Lyrinda btw) so I made four bits of int/pow/hp gear. I didn’t log in my wiz to make her spells — for a pet class, those are WAY more important. I’ll have to see what rares I have, I think they take copper for T1 and I think I got some harvesting in the Nursery.

    All this restarting is slow, but eventually I’ll end up with a good dps character who can run around with VR occasionally.

  4. yeah.. copper. VR needs DPS and tanks. the more dps the better. we’re getting there. We had a 10 man group last night and we were DPS heavy. We beat the pants off a full group of low to mid 20s. 🙂 Three healers… a monk and the rest were DPS.
