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.

TOV – Heart of Frozen Shadow

Tier 2 raids of TOV take place in Tower of Frozen Shadow, however…

Due to budget cuts, there isnt a Iceclad ocean zone, and therefore no “actual” TOFS, instead we get a dwarf and a portal in Eastern wastes to take us to the interior zone, this could be forgiven in itself, if it wasnt for the knowledge that we missed out on a gargantuan updated Lodizal raid – for shame devs !

The first raid of TOFS isnt enticing, not much to look at besides one big black gonad in the middle of the room, and a more annoying than detrimental slippy ice effect on the floor.

kill the speccies, doges and boners, then torment the testicle while getting slapped in the face with a progressive debuff, thats about it.

A simple event complicated by nuisances more than a difficulty, and beaten in due course after a few days learning

TOV – Torment of Velious

For years, I was used to TOV meaning Temple of Veeshan, so of course, things have to change.

Darkpaw games – or Daybreak as they were when this came out served us up a frosty treat of rehash Velious, well about half of it…

After getting a preview of some of the higher tier “things to come” raids during beta testing, we left the lower ones alone for something new and fresh when launched,

First up was Eastern Wastes – Griklor the Restless









Pretty much the same as group content but with extra annoyance of kill you if you move 1 second too slow to a npc hidden by geometry.

our first day of trying it out was met with huge xp loss and disbelief on how it would be possible, our second day shat on it like a dodgy curry the night before

Next up, same zone, second verse –  Servant of the Sleeper





Im either missing something, or they forgot to put some mechanics into this, kind of encounter that might have happened 10 years ago with the previous velious reworking

And then, we learned what not to do on a raid in Great Divide- Restless Assault

With a post update, the next day we went back, and cleared the event, Koldan (the first giant) being the only real challenge.









Velious might be old, and this is a revisit to “familiar” content, but its music to my ears, some might even say mellifluous, not to have to dress up as a frog with helicopter jetpack just to trigger a raid
