[E8S] Sticky Notes Explosion


The Journey into Savage 32
A casual scrub's raiding misadventures

I wrote sticky notes to help myself when I began doing Savage, but this tier, I feel I improved my memory a little, since I didn't feel the need to write as many. Well, with one notable exception.

For E5S I wrote no notes, just yolo and react to whatever happens, lol!

For E6S I wrote 1 note. It's just a list of things to discuss with the party, which are often not written in PF description.

For E7S I wrote 2 notes. Both of these are for Words of Night, really the only hard mechanic.

For E8S...

Many are no longer needed or outdated, I need to go through and clean them up. But it's still the most I ever wrote for any Savage fight. The last time my PC was covered with sticky notes like this, I was cramming for exams in college, lol!

* * *

In the end, I did not manage to see Wyrm's Lament 2 before weekly reset, and of the parties I joined, few ever made it to Icelit Dragonsong.

I joined 1 party that cleanly got all the way to Icelit on the very 1st pull! We were excited, and discussed how to handle the mechanics... but somehow we could not get there again, and after 4 consecutive Light Rampant wipes (one due to me - it was the first time I messed up Light Rampant in an entire week), 2 members left. More people joined, including a SCH with the book from Alexander Ultimate, but somehow we kept wiping at or before adds, and the furthest we saw was knockback mirrors. It was heartbreaking after such an amazing 1st pull, and I have no explanation for what happened.

Fortunately, my reclears went smoothly. I got a very good party that did huge amounts of DPS, and cleared E5-E7 together. This party was very funny, on the 1st pull they would die in all kinds of weird ways, then on the 2nd pull they would play perfectly and do huge damage. They killed Rakta Pasta soon after Conflag Strike. I guess they were figuring out one another's strategy and seeing how riskily they could play, haha.

The Malaysian government extended its lockdown by 2 more weeks, until Apr 14. My workplace is trying to set up things so that we can work from home, but the lockdown came so suddenly, nobody was prepared. There is nothing for me to do, nothing but to continue my desperate battle. Perhaps, in these times of fear and uncertainty, it's not a bad thing to have such a distraction.

I spent all my Savage loot tokens to boost my ilvl to 495 in preparation for the clear attempt. It's time to go to bed and wake up early to raid.

Don't get bitter, just get better! Let's clear together next time!

Wow your sticky notes. So all over the place and yet organized. I'm impressed. Do you actually look at them?

Lol!! Blessing in disguise x)

Mahdi, yep, there's no doubt that there will be a decrease in PF activity once VIIR releases. I might take a break too if I haven't cleared before then.

Aala, yes! Well, most of them. Generally, I refer to them between pulls, if there is something I need to confirm. Very few I actually read during combat (the E7S one mainly, since the mechanic is slow enough to permit this). For a handful, just the process of writing it down helps commit it to memory, and later I never looked at it again, haha.

I guess you mean silver lining, Felsea! Even so, it is not good to play 1 game for too much. I have decided that if I fail to clear before weekly reset, I will begin to reduce my hours and fill my time doing other things, to avoid burnout.

You have very good handwriting. I have to say, I normally just type these days, so from time to time when I need to hold a pen, it feels very awkward.

Good luck on your raid!

HOLY BLEEP! Long time no see, Sigurd. I hope you are safe and healthy!

I am alright. I just resub so that I have more excuse not to go out during the lockdown. The (real) world situation is worrying, but I am not personally impacted too much.

Game wise, I have been spending the last two days catching up with new, 24 men. I yolo everything and read my job tool tip when I get killed my mechanics. I think I will remember how to play my jobs soon (lol). I am looking forward for Eden story. I am below ilv requirement to go into E5 (normal).
