If you’re one of the two and a half people who read this blog, you probably know that my main toon, Evennote, has probably run the Pit about a bazillion times in hopes of getting Muck’s Doom.
She’s looted it just once – on casual, no less – and I promptly sold it to get the plat to buy my then-boyfriend a Robe of the Magi. It had never appeared for her before and never has since. I’ve run the Pit many times on Jalliria as well, several times on Victaurya and twice so far on Acanthia, and not so much as a whiff of Doom.
Friday night was the first time I ran the Pit off Thelanis, as I hooked up with Z and Shin to take my lvl 5 ranger, Azida, in there.
Lucky for me they were both lvl 9, and that they allowed me to talk them out of going in on hard or elite. Things went quite well considering that Azida is not – YET – a force to be reckoned with, and that Shin was having all kinds of connection problems. As we were standing triumphantly over the Avatar of Juiblex’s smushy remains (well, to be honest, that thing is smushy when it’s alive, too), I remarked jokingly, “Watch Azida pull Muck’s Doom on her first run.”
Yep. You guessed it. Azida got a Muck’s Doom. I wanted to include a screenshot of her wielding it, but… she’s lvl 5, and the Doom is minimum lvl 6, so she can’t equip it yet. But she’s rather cute in her own right, so I threw in a shot of her on the airship.
But hey! I’ve got a Muck’s Doom again and this time I’m keeping it!
Also ironic – Even and Jall, mostly Even, are both starting to think seriously about green steel crafting and getting the ingredients they’ll need. I don’t have any other toons even close to being Vale-ready yet. So guess which toon wins the “What’s in the box” MyDDO lottery? Ironica (even the name fits this one), my lvl 3 favor-farming fighter/barb on Sarlona. Makes me really wish there was some kind of a cross-server shared bank slot, or some way to transfer stuff among your own toons on different servers. Ironica is a “disposable” build not designed to live past lvl 3 or 4… although what the heck, I’ve gimped all my other toons, I’m not giving up on her just because she’s supposed to have an expiration date.
