The Current Quest Thread

Post by Dien » Wed Dec 31, 2008 7:07 am

So this is essentially a place where we can post strategies, co-op ideas, and other such goodies as relate to the current quest at hand, whatever that may be. It will probably also serve us well to recycle it and use it for later quests. Who knows? Might just keep activity up as well...

In the current situation, we have two Elites, two useless folks, and one pinned down OP fistfighter at the end of a long hallway in a domed room with a cage, and we've been invited to join the fun. I was gonna have Dien just charge in, but that would do little more than to show just how much of a freaking disadvantage we have in this case. He could look at everyone else to see what their reactions are, but unless we know what everyone's going to do, that won't really work too well.

Thoughts?

...yeah, only problem with that is the fact that they'd probably throw Nall in the way and use that to get his time talisman thing. The only way I can picture it working would be if we charged it like the Spartan Laser in Halo 3 - point it at a rock to charge it, and then in the instant before it fires, turn it to face the opponent and lock on, zapping them before they know they have any laser-fire coming at them.

At the same time, there is no way we can beat these guys one on one. As I asked nights after we scripted:

Jpec2: we're not supposed to win this fight, are we?
EgyptianPingPong: sheena's injured, nall's broken, and there are two elites =P if you can pull it off, more power to you

Hey now. I didn't say there was no way to beat them. I just said that I'm not fixing the outcome one way or the other.

Well, okay, so I am, but not the way you think!

My best hope is Lovers helps to get Klive to get even one attack on Royce. I'm sure it won't work...but I have no idea what else to do. Standard spells and attacks aren't the way to do things.

How long do you think it'd take for Raine to allow us to be able to teleport out?

I'm not entirely sure Raine is teleporting us out. I think with Rayo's distraction, I actually might have enough time to get a decent shot off. I still maintain that's our best bet. Perhaps we might even be able to take one completely out of commission. And that would be worth it.

Yes, for now our best bet is fighting them with intents to kill: that's the only way I think we can actually manage to fend them off long enough for any kind of escape. If we hit one with the gun, I imagine that it'll separate them from any non-Twilight items they may have held. The only problem with that is that I don't think we can get the Twilight items in any kind of usable form (I have my reasons for thinking this way, I'll explain over IM). A full-power blast will also rend the Elite we hit helpless, making one-on-mob combat more plausible.

We should also focus on getting Nall and Sheena to their feet as well. Even facing only one Elite, I don't give our group much of a chance without these two...

I was wondering for a minute if we were actually going to win... silly me. Oh well, we hit them a bit harder than I expected. I'm just curious if we're going to end up captive or something wierd for a little bit. <.< Wouldn't it be pretty horrible for the newcomers if we all just had died there?

Yeah, that would've been pretty bad.

It would appear that a mob chat is the best way to go for getting through this round of posting. We could throw some awkward situations into the mix with people across the hall from one another, but I think it'd be more efficient for us to just do IC chat stuff. So, what time is everyone free to do this? I really can't get anything in until Wednesday evening, though from there I'm free most evenings until Monday...

Anyone have a LOT of burning oil and willing to risk getting set on fire after trying to squeeze out/make the hole bigger?

I'm really only half-kidding.

I'm... sporadic when I'm on. Generally anywhere from 1am-9am EST is the best time to get a hold of me, unless it's the weekend, then it's whenever I'm on. As in; if there's an away up, it means she's not there. Hit me up if you need anything.

I only have one Burning Oil left and don't relish the idea of being set on fire...again. >.>

As far as availability, I am also sporadic but mostly available in the evenings during the week and off and on during the weekends. It goes with actually having somewhat of a decent 8 - 5 work schedule M-F PST.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Walk beside me that we may be as one.

I'd be all for such ideas... except we don't have access to our items.
