so after the setback of our druid quitting only 2 KTA boys are left... but fearlesly they enter the world of Mephisto.
last time we managed to get to wp 2 in act 3 hell... so there is where our adventure continued. searching true the jungles to find that next wp.. and then going on into lower kurast and the rest.
already in the jungle we encountered many packs of gloams and the like... all doing their (nasty) thing. but we did manage to keep it relatively safe here. i really got into sniping those gloamy silly things with FA, as their cold resists really is laughable. they DO havever pack quite a punch.. sometimes devastating our entire army of minions. we did have to walk back a few times to raise some more skellys etc.
we got the remaining organs, en then we wanted to get the book that gives those nice 5 extra stat points. that temple was found easy.. but then .....
belboy entered the temple, and i did so around half a second after him. when my computer managed to load all the pixels we were both completely surrounded by bad monsters, the entire room was filled. belboy toke several hits in a row and toke a rejuf. then our minions woke up and started to join the fun.. belboy cursed the whole bunch... and finaly i woke up as well. switching to LF and starting to trow away. even with a constant stream of LF and all our minions smacking away it still toke a while before things started to clear up a bit. then finaly a salvo of CE made short work of what remained and a precious situation cleared up.
then it was time for travincial... that council always is dangerous, but first we would have to get there. on our way there we encountered a big group of zealots back up by those healing guys. verry irritating... every time we almoost killed 1 it would get healed and we could start over again. after a minut or so we still had not killed a thing.. time for some action. i managed to find a safe way around and ran to those healing guys. Belboy saw me go, and quickly put lower resist on them . they didn't notice me in time, and i stabbed them in the back with charged strike. even before a single reaction from their side 2 were killed, and the 3th soon followed. i made a dash back to safety, now followed by a bunch of angry zealots. of cource there was a nice wall of skeletons to run true, for me at least.. the zealots didn't live to tell the tale without their healing counterparts.
the high council:
we cleared all around them, and then 3 or 4 came running out. a good fight was soon in the making, since all the HC members inside DID trow in their nasty hydra's. those 4 were killed after a while, but our army was not what it should be. so we backed off, and got more minions. we came back and in the door entrance a real messy fight toke place. all council guys clased with our minions and me and belboy doing what we could from a little distance. i started trowing LF, and after over some 35ish LFs all were dead, and only 2 or 3 minions on our side remained.
we got underground, and soon managed to find the next lvl. that one we had to discovver completely before we got the Wp and the way down. and we got down to mephy. the doll we encountered underway werent of any real problem, anytime we saw them we just ran back to our minions and safety with them. Mephy himselve wasn't the real problem. but the bosspack of firewalling, meteor trowing fireballing life stealing bit***ch was. and while the skellys did their thing with meph it was me allone versus the bosspack. and since they were cold immume... FA had little use. so there comes LF again... and after some time only 2 of the entire pack stand. then i turn to Mephy who for some reason managed to kill quite some minions. charged strike however is to much for him, while decrep and gumby make his offensive action a pathetic slow motion. he dropped completely nothing nice... and i mean really nothing.
we had some time left, and decided to go and kill isual, as both of us could use the skilloints involved. we found the way to the stair easily, and on top of those directly was izzy. that was the easy part
we wanted to go to the Wp now... but soon we found that there were souls here. for some reason these souls had a realy devastating effect on our army, and the 2 of us got some heave blows to handle as well. we had to discover the entire area before we finaly left this nasty place, and after that finding the WP was a piece of cake.
thats about it i think
we didn't find anything noticable iirc, unless 2 aceptable charms are counted.
as for close calls we had 1 REAAAAL bad 1.. when we encountered a conviction soul pack, and on my screen i saw only 1 mm of red left in belboys lifebar. for the rest many havy blows, and potions were needed very often with all those lightning beams... but moost of the time they couldn't bring us down to under half life.
i had fun, and looking forward to next time ofcource.
looks like we will be with 3 again then :afro:
stay safe guys
