    Man, *fuck* that fire djinn boss at the end of...

    ...crap, forget the name of the mission, it's the Nightfall one where you've gotta bust through that Vabbi vault/hidden city thing.

    Blew through everything up to it in the mission, pull it...

    ...and I insta-wipe.

    Fire djinns and those fire hounds have big-ass AoE skills that easily wipe out your party in 2 seconds if they are grouped together. The trick is to make sure your Spirit spam is located *outside* the group, the heroes you can individually flag are located *outside* the group and you stay *outside* the rest of the group and away from your spirit spam. It also helps a lot if you bring 2 Mesmers (Gwen from start of EotN and the chubby guy from Vabbi) to shut down their long inductions (2 seconds on a Meteor, for example). Flag your heroes away if they stick in AoE and you should be fine.

    I've got Gwen, I don't think I'm far enough in the storyline to get the other one though. (Unless I missed a quest for him.) Assuming I get him soon, since he's been popping up in cinematics a lot.

    Recruitment
    To recruit Norgu before completing Nightfall, first select Goren during Brains or Brawn and then complete The Role of a Lifetime.
    If you select Norgu as the Brains, then you cannot recruit him until after completing Nightfall by taking Gain Norgu while in the Throne of Secrets.

    Just looked the quest up.

    AKA: The mission I'm on. <_< Can't do the other one instead since it requires the Master of Whispers.

    Surviving the fire djinn is all about having good interrupts and a competent AoE healing build on at least one healer. Try to pull them up the stairs individually, focus fire one using ctrl-click targeting if you pull more than one, and try to have a few interrupts on your henchies. Since you have to bring Margrid the Sly on that one anyway, rangers have a good selection of interrupts, so stick one on her and bring Gwen (with some interrupts) along too.

    Re-did Gwen's abilities into a anti-caster build, and ended up getting through it. Even though I double-pulled fire & sapphire boss. <_<

    yea, kormab or korshek, whatever his name is, is a bastard. having a prot rit out of the way with shelter up pre-fight will help a lot. or if you can tank him a bit where he only hits you and micro protective spirit on yourself.

    at least you got through. the panic/e-surge domination builds pretty much never leave my party. sometimes i run with 2.

    Why is Legendary Survivor's requirement so stupidly high? It's not even a case of being difficult to acquire now, just stupidly long. I'm at a million experience right now at the Gates of Madness. It's too bad I was in the wrong place at the start and lost my triple experience bonus.
    Part of it being long is what makes it hard. The longer you're stuck doing it, the more likely you'll take a stupid risk or do something dumb and lose it all.
    Or you could just do it safely via hard mode EoTN book turnins. That's what my wife's doing.

    Whelp, I hit 30/50 tonight after about a month and a half. I passed along some stuff like unintentional did for me, as I don't really have any intention of logging in any time in the near future. The game can be fun, but the learning curve is pretty severe and there are some aspects of the game that are the some of the most frustrating experiences I've had in gaming. The game was worth the price of admission on its own merits, but I am ready to welcome GW2 with open arms.

    God damn fuck mysterious armor.

    That place is broken as fuck. I got 3 on my third run, then after 4 hours of nonstop play there I got nothing. Next day got 1 in 2 games, then none for 4 hours.

    Then NONE for 3-4 hours a day for 2 more days.

    I was getting far in it too. Like 150-200 points. Thats pretty damn good.

    Im convinced its programmed to only give you 4 per char then say FUCK YOU forever.

    No I am not bitter.

    It is.

    There is a whole lot of anti-farming code designed to stop people non-stop farming for those kinds of items.

    Usually if you get a few then stop, then come back a few days later you can maybe get a couple more.

    The mechanics aren't entirely known, but yeah, there's absolutely a drastic, hard reduction in drop rates after your first few.

    As people have pointed out, you're the victim of the anti-farming code (and also some pretty shitty luck, in my experience you get 4 fairly quickly, then the 5th one takes another couple runs, then it really tails off).

    With that in mind, it's a better idea to get to 3, maybe 4 pieces, then go farm some money to pay for the last 2 or so. That way you don't waste whole days worth of gameplay running the same challenge over and over. I think mysterious pieces go for 12-15k or so? You can farm that up in an hour.

    How much for four of those then? I really prefer the non-primeval armor arts for Morgahn, Margrid, Goren, and Razah, but the availability of the others seems to be non-existent. After these I'll only need to pick up a Black Widow and I'll be set on the Fellowship monument.

    Ormuss, link your HoM. I have to imagine there's easier points to be had than buying both Vabbian and Destroyer. You're talking about a huge chunk of cash there.

    There are CHEAPER points, but I'm going for quick & easy at this point. I'm pretty sure if I liquidate most of the stuff I'm sitting on I'll have more than enough. Hell, I could buy the Destroyer weapon outright even now, and I have about half the gems I need for a Vabbian set already.

    Yeah, from what you've done, you either want the PvP title or a few more armours/weapons. I totally understand not wanting to deal with the PvP title, since zkeys either involve a large cash expenditure or a lengthy time investment (I went through the same process myself.)

    Hmm. 10 pets would be cheaper than a destroyer, maybe, but then you'd have to be in Spamadan for awhile.

    So, yeah. I guess you're right.

    Also, for some reason I was thinking "tormentor" not destroyer.

    Torment is an investment of time or money.

    23-25e for an armbrace or 2-3 full runs on HM (probably 3-5 on NM).

    @Ormuss - zkeys I will purchase, though I will likely hold off on direct purchase of war supplies or oppressor weapons.

    Also, DIAMONDS.

    It doesn't look like you got a kurzick/luxon armour, that should alone put you at 29 points and can be had for probably around 50+75 something plat (excluding non-amberchunk/jadeite material costs).

    My issue with Kurzick/Luxon armor remains that I'd have to level another character through Factions to get it, since my main is a dervish.

    I agree that the total cost of it is probably cheaper than the Vabbian, but it's definitely more time.
