Live Event at the Spires
The call went out to 70-79, a live event was happening at the spires in Loping Plains. The Champion of Hate, an 84×2 epic had spawned just after the spires were completed. Little Willamina was too small at level 75 to help take this encounter down, but I watched eagerly on the edge of my seat while people gathered their forces together.
I love watching the server come together for an event like this. It’s not something that happens often in EQ2 as opposed to EQ where guide quests can have 100’s of players taking down encounters. The 12 people went and pulled – and a few seconds later everyone was dead except me, and the Champion of Hate.
The second try ended far better except that I went link dead just as the epic was about to die, guess I had my settings on too high. Figures!
It was still a lot of fun to watch and I hope everyone had a good time. I like events like these because they are encounters that are NOT taken down by your typical raider. They were a collected group of non-raiders who happened to be at the right place at the right time. Congratulations to those who got to partake!
