On Sunday night, after a couple of hours upon reaching the cap level…
Decided to find a pub party for the Fortress of Sandarman.
Found one which was nearly a full one, but, without a range dps.
They wanted to go on Hard Mode.
Newbie Icesabel then went in the dungeon for the first time… on hard mode straight away.
Well, as long as someone does a good briefing, things will go fine, unless that boss fight is truly really challenging.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t down the last boss.
Not sure whether it was the reduce damage buffs were not done correctly or it’s of another problem.
Good news is, I obtained my first blue level 50, a pair of boots!
One of them asked if we wanted to try the Garden of Baphomet, as a friend of his was inviting us.
I was curious, although, knowing very well, that I am not equipped at all… >_< after all, I’ve just hit max level not long ago and did nothing after that.
Pathetically, I was the only one without a “Goblin Leader” title, one of the two titles of (same stats) highest stats.
It was a pub and they were nice enough not to say anything about me being a newbie.
We downed the first 3 bosses and the two final minotaurs, except for the last boss.
The raid party was in a mess whilst trying to kill the last boss.. so.. we gave up after a couple of tries.
I didn’t get anything, but, I was expecting to anyway.
Today, after a late evening meeting, I rushed to see my orthodontist before heading home to game.
Randomly searched for a party to kill the Goblin Leader, since, I felt so left out earlier… tee hee~
After killing it for the title, I carried on to farm with them for a weapon.
After a good hour, while in a horrible lag all the while, I died, as everyone lagged out and the tank died… then, I died again while running back to the spot.
They finished killing the boss while I was running back and lo and behold, they rolled the item without me.
Well, 2 of them abandoned the roll but the other 2 rolled it and the priest got it.
Then, he left to have dinner.
I was trying to tell myself it’s just a game.
But… wow.. it actually felt painful.. that I had to bite back my tears.
You wouldn’t understand unless you’re in my shoes… but, I knew that I’d still get it later on.. kept telling myself that it’s fine.
But… it really was hurtful inside.
I wanted to leave the party but decided not to.
20 mins later,the leader found a sorcerer to heal us.
After 3 kills, plomppp… it dropped!
In fact, it dropped again, 2 kills later.
Probably was testing my patience.
Going to bed now.
