It took longer than promised, but we finally got Tier 3 of Torment of Velious “unlocked” live

Some say its delay was due to a miscoded timer, others argue it was not fully finished or tuned, however, I have to consider the sacrificial rogues that are used as pyre codpieces to be relevant.

Either way, in conjunction with Darkpaw living up to its predecessor and breaking established content (currently TOFS is “virtually” unwinnable), we have new raids.

The first of these, Derek in Kael, starts with a tiny bit of lore involving an surprise visit by Icecursed Avatar of War killing Derek and leaving you to tidy up after him, and thus answering what the feck Tormax was talking about during the group mission there.

Just a couple of attempts gave us the information we needed to beat it, and once again, we expect the devs to suddenly declare that “blah blah bollocks bullshit” wasnt working as intended, and then ramp up the difficulty in a few months time, continuing the circle of life of a EQ raid.

I still dont understand why they shove the loot chest back to the entry area of the instance when you have to have been a distance away to win, at least its not too far.

Next up what we are working on is the AOW himself, doesnt talk much and isnt the best drinking buddy, but we expect him to share his toys pretty soon.

And speaking of toys, ill just leave this here, calling loot is a job, sometimes easy, and sometimes I just have this face on me

Tserrina Syl’Tor

One of my favourite older world unique looking mobs, even though she is pretty small, but like a majority of almost 20 year old NPC models she has a very low poly count, so as to not look like total shit in a new event, she got upgraded, in a big way and its not just her wingspan…

TOFS event 3 is an interesting event with enough going on not to get boring, yet, not too much to be overwhelmed, one of the few events that encourages usage of illusions, to a degree.

The highlight of the event, was at the end with her dialog, so many talked to her without paying attention, lol gotcha !

And now we wait, for tier 3.

TOV – Till death us do part

The second event in Tower of Frozen Shadow – “Till death us do part” isnt unfortunately anything to do with Alf Garnett as I had hoped, its something to do with the floor 5 bizarre wedding setup.

The Groom (Nosja) sporting his best vampiric cyan along with his beautiful Bride (Daman) emitting an aromatic hue of rotting flesh await the ceremony to unite them under one.

As with most weddings, it has its share of guests, which on first inspection appear to be following usual comedic wedding sport of knocking the crap out of each other,

However, this time, it got some unexpected gate crashing party animals to sort out the mess.

The Doorman bouncer, showing his best stoic form, tries to help us out.

Quite a fun and slightly challenging event which through wordplay on emote debuff managed to misdirect some to doing the opposite of what they should until its explained several times.

Special shoutout to the men of the match. Bodymilk and Pelpa, this picture shows the tanking power of Bodymilk (bottom right) taking on pretty much everything, while the MVP plowed its way through Marnic, then shortly after took a dirt nap and stayed down for a majority of the event while its companions fought off everyone else.

Next up : Tserrina
