Annabel's DYING Gasp!

Public



Monday morning and it's time for Anna's CWLS event!

Aria, Gran and I loaded into Amaurot, the level 80 dungeon, with Anna. Aria went "MAXIMUM EFFORT!!!" which is the code word for use sprint and pull all the monsters on the planet. I have pulled Amaurot wall to wall plenty of times, this will be a cinch!

Just kidding! have played with Anna several times so I know how she heals, and I knew Amaurot would be tough for her. While Amaurot enemies are not stronger than normal, they do cast a lot of aoes at players who are not #1 on the enmity list. Anna tends to run about erratically while doding aoes, resulting in a low amount of time spent healing. We did single pulls, except for a stretch after 1st boss where I did 2 pulls at once since they are very close together.

Funnily, the one time I died was my own fault! I had a brain fart and made several mistakes in a row, including not using cooldown, broken combo, and failing to sense that the healer is struggling and to clemency myself.



I blame the lack of coffee, 7am is way too early to be up slaying monsters! Fortunately, rez mage Aria salvaged the situation but poor Gran became collateral damage...

The other funny thing is, Aria and I were so worried for Anna at the final boss and Aria even said "If you die I NEED you to get back up at once" (maybe we'll even wipe?!) However, Anna did very well and did not die even once - in fact, I don't recall any deaths. Well done Anna!



By the way, properly played tank can solo this boss. When you run out of ledges, just stand in the Apokalypsis beam, it doesn't do enough damage to kill you.

Then, it was time for the level 80 MSQ trial. Panda was unable to join us, but we were able to assemble a full premade of 8 in the end. To make it not so easysauce, we all went in on min ilvl the first time, and Anna did it blind, with no mechanics tips from us. How many people will die? How many times will we wipe? Place your bets and find out!

Wow Helltank, you make me sound like an absolute clueless Blonde ditz who's more concerned about saving herself then healing people. :O

I mean it's TRUE, but you don't have to TELL them! And yes people, I am the only one who WANT to heal the 80 stuff since Aria doesn't like Scholar anymore. Suffer! ;-)

And YES people, I did NOT die at ALL in that dungeon, EVEN on the last boss! Suck it doubters! ;p

Gran blames me for his death, which is LIES! He slanders me ALL the time! :O

As for the trial though.....sigh. I died three times. I was really confused at the beginning and died twice, then I got used to the trial and after the transformation I was doing REALLY good.....until the stupid button mashing.....

I'm SORRY, these OLD hands CAN'T mash that fast!!!!!!! I SWEAR they hardly gave you ANY time to do it!

Lots of others died TOO!

And Aria yelling was sooo funny, I missed it in the trial, but saw it in the video.

Man, it is soooo funny watching me run around. ;p

Congrats Annabel, if we expect the two death on the first phase... on the same mechanic x) and the fact you cannot smash a button :P It was a clean run :)

And congrats Siglinde, the way you play paladin is impressive :)

Anna, is there a function on controller where you just hold down a button and the controller simulates rapid button presses? I heard that some controllers can do that, perhaps it's worth seeing if yours has it.

And yes on my first time I misunderstood the falling puddles too! It looks so much like towers, I thought you were supposed to stand in them, too.

Thanks Yoru! Though, I do not think I do anything special. If you look closely, you may see mistakes in positioning and rotation too, see if you can spot them all. ;)

And Mahdi, I am not sure if I'm qualified to carry anyone... lol.

The tips on controller is to press multiple buttons together. I'm on PS4 and on the dualshock on press all the four right buttons with two fingers. Very efficient on Shinryu EX (on this fight the time is shorter than the normal encounters)
