Gondor! Gondor, between the Mountains and the Sea!
West Wind blew there; the light upon the Silver Tree
Fell like bright rain in gardens of the Kings of old.
O proud walls! White towers! O wingéd crown and throne of gold!
O Gondor,Gondor! Shall Men behold the Silver Tree,
Or West Wind blow again between the Mountains and the Sea?

There is a passage into a place called, in the Black Speech of the Enemy, the Rift of Nûrz Ghâshu...



Whatever waits there, let us hope, we are able to handle.



Horn(e)y villains, they are no more.



From deep within, we discovered fire-breath creatures:



Some of them seemed friendly at first:



Enter the arena...





To see reflections of ourselves on the walls, the fear fades as I know why I have been sent here:



"Fight!"



Hal. Didn't mother tell you not to play with fire?





Stone-eating beasts? This cannot be right...



Did she say "Mellon"? Rolling Eyes





Get back to the shadows to where you belong:



After you have fought Balrog, you are never the same.

Janadan the Merciful (k.l.p.):





When Theu and Riv showed this minstrel-less raid how to heal (first four bosses and the Ugly Girl with runekeeper and captain healz; for some weird reason a minstrel was imported in for the Blind One but that was only because some people left):



In case someone still had doubts if my HoTs can lift people in the air:



When our fellowship pwned the other fellowship in faancy fellowship maneuver move in the raid. (Though it was most likely the only successful 6-straight FM for the whole raid :p)



This pocket minstrel business seems to be contagious - soon every runekeeper has one!



Janadan the Blind One:



In the middle of eliminating the blind beast:

Rivorniel had heard that in a far away place in dephts of Khazad-dûm, in the hall marked with number 16 there lies a very very very tasty mushroom...



The search for the yummi shroom took us through many corridors.



"Time for some interesting pulls," said the warden, and Rivorniel got a bit scared.



Save that fancy campfire for laters maybe, we need to cook that shroom!



Shocked A depressive orc! He could use some counselling... or Prozac.



Alex said those sitting sadly in corner ate too much. Well I hope they kept away from my shroom!



Janadan spikes his hair. Rivorniel checks makeup in between the healz. Erendiul polishes his weapon in between the strikes. That's how SGS does it.



Janadan: "Lots of dead meat around"
Erendiul: (inspects floor) "Yeah..."
Rivorniel: "I'm not hungry"




Rivorniel senses the presence of the shroom:




Erendiul defeated the Grazed Globsnaga. Janadan defeated Dhûrz. Rivorniel was just standing and being pretty (also proven by the state of the morale and power bar).



With a bit of imagination, this can be considered pretty:



When Riv made up for earlier slacking and her mighty blow defeated the Lost One.



Free entertainment. Awesome.



... and we did find the shroom too. Wasn't as tasty as expected though...

Mirky at night, preparing for the fight that never took place.



A very smooth trip to Sammath Gul that took place instead. I am very grateful to the whole group, who did not show a vote of no confidence towards the healer, meaning not a single random GREEN hit in fellow maneuvers. Thanks, guys. The result? Not a single death during the whole instance. (Did hard mode, Gorothul was fun with the group setup, where crowd control was something to be greatly desired :p)



When Hamri fought bravely and the rest cheered from the corner (notice our head cheerleader - Janadan):

A waden (Very Happy) told us that nearby there is a fine dining place led by a chef called Vrarz. The three of us decided to check it out!



The whole gang - Erendiul, Janadan, Rivorniel, Wilgo and the Banner of Hope.



A moment before Erendiul's epic fail at Sylvan Shadows:



At first we were greeted by Vrarz's friendly waiters (and waitresses?):



Enter Vrarz the Cook - though I think he is mixing something up here... Hey, it is not of our concern if you forgot to replenish your minced meat stock this morning!



Erm... I think he might have gotten a bit angry after we slayed all his dishwashers...



Ooookay I suppose he REALLY didn't like us befriending his crew...



Mmm, I think we pass this time, *observes the orc restaurant* this is definitely not the most hygienic place I ever dined, and all these orc limbs lying around can make you feel sick...



Whooops. I suppose meat's back in the menu afterall.
(Times I died during this fight - 1 or 2.)




Vrarz's kitchen:



When we were trying on clothes of the dead orcses:



Time to dance on tables!



When Alex was not prepared for the warband manoeuvre:



Ooo, there is a General too in this place? Thanks for the tip, dead orc, we need to check if he offers some dessert.
(Times I died during this fight - 2.)




Janadan went to take a walk with our only friend in that bravery forsaken place, a Sentry, and we were left to guard:



The three fuzzy animals:



Alas, no dessert. Crying or Very sad Just the same old orc meat.
(Times I died during this fight - 1... I think...)




Battered, bruised, satisfied... and still hungry.



So we trioed Fil Gashan Hard Mode. I have to say, compared to that one, Halls of Crafting was a walk in the park (won't even mention the 16th Hall, which is probably soloable by a warden.) Always amusing to see the crazy orc chef who is equipped with a frying pan (he hits hard though, considering his choice of weapon!) The random aggro attacks he forced upon his minions were hard to deal at first but I got the hang of it in the end.
Now the second fight was interesting as it consisted of the boss Commander, two Moria Lieutenants (imagine warband maneouvres being divided between three people instead of six and you get the idea...) and our friend, the ever loyal sentry, who had been following us for a while (and whom we could not kill for HM condition). It was fun to see him hopping around us during the boss fight - I guess it is good we did not have a champion along.
The Talug fight was very challenging and very long. I don't think any of us were particularly expertised in that fight (haven't been there that much) and additionally, they have "fixed" the "bug" regarding runekeeper fire dots, so now you actually only can harm him in the way it is supposed to work. Took a little while for us to get the circle of trap-dps fist til almost dead-drag Talug to trap-kill fist next to him going, but we did it in the end. All the time you need to grab/avoid agro, heal, deal with very nasty wounds and fire damage (so glad I'm a runekeeper and can prevent a lot of this stuff) and of course, not to run through traps yourself :p Oh and of course some outburst of dps now and then is highly valued too. So lots to do, which explains lack of proper screenies from that fight.

Very well done guys! Thanks for all the resses Alex (I really am very squishy Very Happy)

Riv and I tried to duo GS but found it problematic once we got in to the groups of 3 or more elite orcs. Maybe as a trio though...... Oh and we still miss you Janne Wink

After attempt to duo GS I concluded it takes a bit of fiddling with traits, don't think I was optimally traited for this one at all. Should make it better. But regarding our grand plan of trioing Moria instances I'd want to try them all. Skûmfil - I can't see many problems, Grand Stair should be very doable as well (though may be a bit tricky with hard mode...) I can see some problems with Dark Delvings (the second boss adds) and Forges. The problem with Forges for me is that I only have been there in total of less than 5 times so basically don't know anything about the place. Need to do some serious homework before attempting this.

But so far 3/7 done, I guess.

And yes we miss you Janne *pats the pocket minstrel*

I miss you guys too but I'm bound in spirit to the sigil. Smile

GS HM I can see being very difficult to trio at least in your warden, captain, rk setup. On the last boss you basically just have Alex on boss dps. Maybe some javelins here and there... I predict a very long fight. Getting to HM will probably need some sacrificing as well if DPS isn't enough to reach the second boss in 10 min. Meaning, run up the stairs and activate the boss and wipe I guess, but it a bit exploitative in my book. Wink

Forges second boss will be tricky if the trolls start rampaging but after that it should be easyish, but maybe a bit pressed for time. DD second boss will be nasty if you get overseers. Also if you get vile maws it means 0% melee damage so you'll be throwing javelins. Probably best to move Alex to healing then and move Riv to dps. The big fellow could also complicate things as he can't be CCed.

Don't forget to do Forgotten Treasury either. The twin trolls can be chaotic. Smile
