Saturday our guild participated in its first keep defense. It brought back great memories of our guild in DAOC.
Guild members hold back the Destruction forces in Stonetroll Keep’s courtyard.
Throughout the day we had played in Stonetroll Crossing, another scenario, but for the 12-21 level set. Basically you grab a ball and pacify (and by pacify they mean exterminate) three different troll camps. We decided two of our newer members needed renown gear so we headed toward a keep, which subsequently came under attack.
Timmm, who plays a bright wizard, was initially shy to jump in the middle of the fray, but once we explained that we’d keep him alive throughout the semi-suicidal effort he was more than eager to use his point-blank, area-of-effect spell to down the Destruction forces. When Destruction had the keep’s door down, Timmm jumped in the middle of the ram and we must have killed 20-30 people by ourselves. The entire raid was in full-flee mode after that. We didn’t hold the keep, though, due to overwhelming numbers and a rather disorganized warband. But we did have a great time last night!
Also, please welcome our new members, Vanhellings and Defleshedz!
