    I tend to not do the Tiamat run cause I never really get far but I'm sure it's fun for some people so good luck to everyone trying in the future!

    Been spamming Well of Dragon's for things to sell since I need at least 1 million diamonds for the next weapon enchantment upgrade so I've only been able to put dragon coins in the coffer. Hopefully it comes in handy for something at least!

    If anyone is looking for good rings, I have had some surprisingly good luck with doing the Demogorgon encounters. I've snagged a +5 ring (orange - epic?) and a +4 as well. Both have 2 slots for gems.

    For those who haven't tried the Demogorgon, it activates at 30 past the hour in Mantol Derith. If you don't want to be called an ***** by your fellow adventurers:
    Phase 1 - only open the purple tears. The other colors will just waste time and won't get your group to "gold" status
    Phase 2 - always try to point to the yellow circles if you get tagged. I have found this to be harder than it should be, but I may just be an *****.
    Phase 3 - I don't think there's a secret. Just attack.

    Lol I notice, most probably it's internet issue.

    BTW Thanks for everyone that has participated the stronghold HE just now, it's just too bad we can't get stronghold siege battle queue to work, we have to try again next time.

    It will be better if everyone shows up :)

    Hope everyone is making the most of the double XP, diamonds etc. Haven't been able to make the most of it as much as I can but since Monday is a bank holiday in the UK ill try and get a little bit more done. Just spamming Prophecy of Madness to see if I can get the rank 5 crit ring, managed to get the rank 4 one so another one of those will be good to!

    Blerg.. Having to wait for the update because my XB1 didn't automatically update during the day! Oi..

Plus it's only downloading at 3mbps despite my 18mb connection. 5.3 gigs is taking a while!

    I'm still around just varies how much time I have each day. I do say hi in the chat but I don't hear anything back so I assume either people are busy or nobodies around. I only have the one character (and most likely will) so no alts. I'm still donating stuff to the coffer mainly from well of dragons and doing the quests available at the guild but never see anyone around. I'll keep trying though!

    Only managed to check out a few things about the update, mainly the mounts and the slots that come with them. I'm not sure if I've misunderstood them but if you have a stable full of companions and all the slots on each companion are used do the bonuses you get from them stack or is it only the bonuses you get get from your equipped mount?

    Ah, I guess we play at different times, we have quite an active numbers of players now. We almost won dragon flight that day, need more dps and Paladin for now.

    As for the mount all 5 insignia bonus do stack but it has diminishing return if you have too many same types of effect. Reading it from somewhere there is this effect that gives you 10% summon companion dmg increase, if you have 5 same stacks together you get total 40% instead of 50%. It's better to mix.

    Good to know that you can at least use all slots on mounts in the stable, probably expensive to get it all though. I'm a gwf so not sure how useful i'd be I'm just trying to get my item level up with the time I have as well as doing epic dungeons, have around 90 epic keys I need to use!

    Well, Maze Engine has added one more thing to level up for boons! I'm still aimlessly just doing random quests, Common cause and Dread Ring DHE's for the most part. I think someone mentioned doing their Dailies.. is there a kind of checklist that someone can bring up?

    1. ToD - Common Cause, Neverdeath/Ebon/Rothe/Icepeak dragon quests for scrolls, teeth and Sigils; Defeating Dragons (weekly)
    2. Dread Ring - 3 DHE's to get the Thayan Cypher from the Demon Hunter, make a silver gauntlet and run forge/spire/fortress (is it worth it?)
    3. Sharandar - ???
    etc..


    Also wondering about Rhix.. I keep reading about people going to him for dailies, but he doesn't give me anything other than "You can get xxx AD's for Skirmishes, yyy AD's for Dungeons!" - is this a thing that's been phased out?

    Or has someone already published something like this? I've read the guide to the campaigns linked at the start of this thread, but it seems to be more of a mathematical breakdown of what it takes to get through.

    Thanks again, this guild has been great!

    For me this is what i do daily

    1. ToD - Common Cause, Neverdeath/Ebon/Rothe/Icepeak/Whispering dragon quests for scrolls, teeth and Sigils; Defeating Dragons (weekly)
    2. Dread Ring - 3 DHE's to get the Thayan Cypher from the Demon Hunter, make a admantine gauntlet and run forge/spire/fortress and all the quest available daily. Its worth it because you get refinement stones pack 3 of it (higher lvl gauntlet gives you superior enchantment)
    3. Sharandar - on for fey crystal, do all quest here when its on 2x enchant so you get 2x the Thaumaturgic Stone?
    4. Icewind dale - optional i do it so i can have some currency prepared for maze engine update so i can make epic vouchers
    5. Well of Dragons - all quest here so you get enough scroll for emperor treasure and dragon keys daily, else you wont have enough
    6. 2 dungeon, 2 skirmish

    Rhix is suppose to give us quest last time i think pre mod 6-7 when we complete dungeon/skirmish we need to claim it from him, now they have changed it to giving us the reward after each instance.

    Awesome! Thanks! I guess we can add the Bruenor quests now. Thankfully I've been able to do them solo so far with the DC, was worried I'd need much better gear than what I have now. It's a clever way of using older levels like Blacklake with these daily demonic quests, otherwise nobody ever goes back to them past the beginning levels.. The cordoned area seems to warn all of the regular adventurers to stay away, guess a level 10 walking in by accident would mean insta-death :D

    Funny you mention that....I activated a demon yesterday and two level 10 adventures decided to "help". They didn't last long. But they both kept coming back!

    What do you guys do with the trade bars? Do you just buy level 7 gems to refine your artifacts? That seems to make the most sense.

    I probably don't do as many daily quests as I should but I do some. I do try to get in at least one Demogorgon fight per day so that I can try to get a good ring or two. I've managed to load up both my characters with three +4 rings and one +5 so that's worked out pretty well. If anyone hasn't noticed, you no longer need to go to Mandol to join the Demogorgon queue.

    Finally, I tried Castle Neverwinter yesterday. All 5 of us were 2500+, but nobody crazy high (3000+). At the final battle, we were all dead within 2 hits from Orcus. This happened multiple times before we gave up. I don't know what you need to have to beat him. Crazy.

    Wow, that's impressive. How much time does that take you every day?

    Most week days, I mainly do invocations and professions so about 15 minutes total with 7 characters. I try to do the quests and other fun stuff on the weekend. And joining you guys on Sunday's off course :-)

    It probably take me 4 hours for all that, if you are lucky easy quest from well of dragon, nice timing for dhe with overload encounter and just nice for ppl asking to clear common cause quest you can probably skim 30min or an hour out of it.

    The real problem is I had to do this on my alt too... It's taking too much of my time, Lucky my alt is an dps build so it's much faster.

    It was a big week for the guild!

    First off, we completed a record three upgrades in one week. Thanks to everyone who donated, and special thanks to Beastmaster and Destroyer, who I believe donated the most Treasures of Tyranny out of everyone and pushed us over the edge on that third upgrade.

    We built:



    The Mine, which produces Metal required for some Stronghold upgrades.



    The Quarry, which produces Stone required for some Stronghold upgrades.



    And most importantly, Guild Hall Level 4! Our Stronghold fountain looks fancier now and more NPCs live in the Stronghold.



    Now that our Guild Hall is Rank 4, we can collect resources to build Marketplace Level 2. That will immediately benefit everyone because we'll be able to buy more things from the Stronghold shops! We need Surplus and treasures from Sharandar and Dread Ring. Please donate whatever you can to help get the Marketplace upgrade started.



    We also had our big Maze Engine stream last night, with IccyAsd, Viva la Wong, Andarr, WestX, and JSmith playing along with me at different points during the stream. Everyone who watched the stream live had a great chance to win a Boar mount, and we also gave Boar mounts to the people who showed up in the Stronghold for our group shot at the start of the stream.



    Thanks to all of you guys. Please keep tuning in during our streams and showing up for guild meetings like our Sunday morning meetups!

    I'm still around just varies how much time I have each day. I do say hi in the chat but I don't hear anything back so I assume either people are busy or nobodies around. I only have the one character (and most likely will) so no alts. I'm still donating stuff to the coffer mainly from well of dragons and doing the quests available at the guild but never see anyone around. I'll keep trying though!
    One problem could be that it gets hard to tell who people are that used the randomly generated names for their characters. So I bet sometimes we see you but don't realize it's you.

    We really value your contributions to the forum and coffer donations. But it would also be great to have you around during guild meetups like the one we did on Maze Engine release night and our Sunday morning meetups. (Sorry if you came to the Saturday stream and I didn't notice. I couldn't look at everyone's names.)

    Those are just the best times for us to get to know each other, and also to accomplish things that only a strong guild can do. For instance, we were probably 2 strong players away from defeating a Stronghold dragon on Tuesday. We got it down to 10% health before time ran out. Hopefully we can continue to grow the guild and make goals like that easier to accomplish.

    I didn't realise I had a generic character name, thought long and hard about that! Which probably says a lot really! I'll keep saying hola in the chat so hopefully it'll work. Working on Sharanda and Dread ring to add to the coffer. Completed both campaigns so can make the vouchers which give 1000 trinkets per voucher.
