Norros Woodsoul -Half Elf Cleric Ranger 3rd Update in SoA
I had my update, but I accidently lost it :/ . Well...I did the Planar Sphere, Mind Flayer undercity in the sewers, and some other stuff, but I forgot. I normally write as I am doing the action that i'm writing about lol. Also, Alhoon is undead by the way so it was a one hit wonder on the guy lol, I hit LvL Cleric 17/ Ranger 14 in that fight - GWW. I hit him with my IMoD and he died instantly.
I hit my 4mil xp prerequisite (2mil each class), so I headed off to talk to Aran, then left for Spellhold. I beat the three ambush vampires then headed of towards Perith. He casted spell trap, but I just GWW and plowed through him and grabbed the ward. I crossed the bridge and killed the mists waiting on the other side. The shades awaiting for me at the top of the stairs were exploded at the very sight of my holy symbol. In the dream sequence, I sacrificed DEX and am down to 18 DEX.
1st Layer of Spellhold, I did the book of monsters and hit LvL Cleric 17/ Ranger 15 (GWW). Killed off those kobolds and grabbed the shard. The Lich and the rest of the undead were killed by turning undead. They exploded, I did hit the Lich a couple of times, but he shadow doored so I turned undead and chunked him. Killed the Vampire while severing his hand, solved the items puzzle, the riddles and put the stones in the dimension door to receive the doomplate, killed the Yuan-ti's and went to the 2nd Layer. Took an entire smoke break just to see the two secret door. With all my buffs applied I grabbed the paintings off the wall and continued further to catch up with Bodhi. Killing the minotaurs gained me another LvL Cleric 18/ Ranger 15 (GWW). Killed all the painting monsters. Turned in my tokens to get the Electric and frost boots. I had to dawn the ring of influence to have the key warden unlock all the crazies, wenav transported us and we prepared for battle. Awesome I pulled off an Insect Plague while Jon was doing an incantation to a spell. GWW swings ended the fight shortly enough, and Irenicus fled. I decided to take Saemon's word on getting to Irenicus.
Aboard the ship the Gith attacked and the ship sunk into the sea. I agreed to help out the king fish, even though it would end their existence, so be it, they are evil and should end regardless. Doing the Imp's riddle gave me another LvL Cleric 18/ Ranger 16 (GWW). Convinced the Beholder to let me see inside the chest, and then I told him to leave. I killed the prince with a new tactic (Global Sanctuary) cast Globe of Blades and sanctuary, and just walk around at your enemies . It chunkes the prince with 67 and 24. I turned the quest in and descended into the Underdark. Hit LvL Cleric 19/ Ranger 16 (GWW).
I killed all the air, earth, and fire (with staff of fire) elemental portals. The first drow party proved to be a big hassal, Insect Plague and Holy Smite was covered up by MR, so that left just melee. Had to use two uses of RoR, but prevailed regardless. I entered the kuo cavern to get the girdle of frost giant, I killed the beholders with the beholder shield. The rest of the Kuo's were just GWW'd to death, hit LvL Cleric 20/ Ranger 17 (GWW and Hardness). I conjured up the demons and GWW'd them into bits. Shortly after I arrived at the deep gnome encampment. I killed the Balor with a GWW, and turned the quest in for the gem. Disguised as a drow, I entered the city and received my first quest. The Drow hunter party outside the city was quickly put to rest by prebuffs and 3x Insect Plagues. They all scattered in fear, and I just GWW'd the rest. At the Flayer war party, I prebuffed myself, and initiated the sequence, success! I GWW'd the first and second Flayer, then waited two more seconds then did another GWW on the third and the three umber hulks. I turned the quest in and was granted leave for a day or two, so I fought in the pits against the enemies of the drow, GWW was once again a useful tactic against them, along with the shield for the beholder. The next quest is to go kill the rogue beholder, I handled it just like every other beholder before, buff (even though anti magic still bypasses the shield) then equip the shield and swing away.
I was told to go and kill Solf. but I couldn't just kill the man, I had him hand over his cloak and I went to speak with Phaere, she demanded that I sleep with her, but my Elven nature couldn't do it (A "Good" character of Elven and Ranger decent would not sleep with a Drow willingly) so I refused her bed. She stormed at me, I GWW'd her and killed her. The Alarm was sounded amongst Ust Nathad, every drow in the city now wants my head. A VERY!! risky idea for a solo no reload, but nothing that my buffs can't handle. I wasted every drow that got near me (honestly, besides MR, drow are extremely easy). Killing the handmaiden of Lolth got me a LvL Cleric 21/ Ranger 17 (GWW). I grabbed the eggs, casted Globe of Blades and Sanctuary, then simply walked out the door. Returned the eggs got me another LvL Cleric 21/ Ranger 18 (Hardness), and made it to the ruins beneath the surface, I slayed the drow in my way and saw the sun once more. Elhan gave me some water and stakes that would come in handy on my task and I set off for the Athkatla once more.
I met up with Drizzt the Drow and fellow Ranger Buddy. I told my ranger buddy about the threat of the vampires in Athkatla and he agreed to assist (hope this doesn't go against the "solo" part of the challenge). I headed to docks to get my strength hammer, and went to the promenade for the simmy helm, I recharged my RoR and purchased a second one ( just incase for ToB or something). At the graveyard I ventured, and into the crypts I went. Inside the crypt I didn't even lift a finger, the vampires were all exploded at the sight of my holy symbol (turn undead) Bodhi on the other hand was needed only one GWW to send her to the grave where I plunged a stake in her, 91000 XP deff got me a LvL Cleric 22/ Ranger 18. I handed over the Lantern to Elhan, and ascended into the Elven city.
With all my buffs in place, I sought out the pieces that would conjure the Elven God (psst, also my god as a Half Elf Cleric/ Ranger, it would only make sense to be a cleric of the God of Nature, seeing how i'm a ranger as well lol). Adam Golems were taken down by GWW's. I did the puzzle box for the talisman, but only after receiving 80 acid damage lol. Killing another Adam Golem got me to LvL Cleric 22/ Ranger 19 (GWW). Went upstairs to grab the wardstone. Raamilet was killed by his own Pit Fiend while I was finishing off the Naabrasu. Priestess Denin was save by the three Rakshasas, and I went to go get the harp, then faced the dragon. I conjured up a Deva, Aerial servent, and a fire elemental as fodder. He casted his entangle on my summons and I waited till the spell expired and charged in to trade blows. Trading blows we did, I used 2 charges of the RoR but he fell at last, hit LvL Cleric 23/ Ranger 19 (GWW). I witnessed the death of the balor and elf, and grabbed the blade. Went down to the southwest to pick up the horn, and with all items in my hand, I went into the temple (fully beyond fully buffed, typical buffs + : PfElec, PfFire, DUHM, defense harmony, hardiness X3, physical mirror). Initiated combat with an Insect Plague centered on Suneer, which disabled all his spell castings except his contingencies. GWW on everyone, then put the items on the altar and initiated the next sequence.
I'm done playing for now, I will continue this run later tonight or tomorrow.
