I have been playing this game since the start of F2P and there are still some Heroic quests I have not had the pleasure of doing. Two of them up to a few days ago where the Master Artificer and the Lord of Blades.
Patrick over on DDOCast always talks about how great a raid boss the Lord of Blades is and having done the raid I would now agree. Though fighting two warforged titans in the Master Artificer is pretty cool too!
After 6 manning the raid on HE with toons between level 20-24 and having multiple deaths in both it makes me wonder how extreme these really were when they first came out.
Many of the higher level raids people take for granted today, even The Shroud, used to be real butt kickers requiring good teamwork and following orders. A real challenge!!
This life I took part in an at level pug Shroud on Elite, short manned one slot, with one healer and we completed!! With the current state of the game many players included myself will never know how tough some of the quests used to be. Most had to or were just a real A** Whooping!!
Instead of the BYOH lfm’s that abound today, maybe we need to start posting up first life toons only, no epic or heroic past life feats allowed…..
