Awww, Buaz! I LOVE these trials, they're difficult yet so much fun. I try to do them often... Unfortunately, your wife and I are going to be out of town at the same time :( I will be gone from tomorrow through the 21st and while I may have some time to log onto EQ, I doubt it will be much.

Next time, tell her to schedule her trips on days that I'm around so I can play too!!!!

I'm game. I never got the chance to attend Silly's KT trials either, so if those are going on I'd do those too. I'm limited in that I generally am not on until 10-1030 pm ET.

I'd really like to get in on some of these. I am only free on weekends though unless something is set up in advance.

This is mostly a poor excuse for me to use Itemshot, but... Here are the items from the different trials out there.

Trial of Destruction - Just straight up DPS on 'waves' of mobs.

[itemshot]70618[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70617[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70616[/itemshot]

Efficiency - Kill 'waves' of mobs while dealing with an area-wide detrimental effect that reduces mana and HP by half, up to 3500.

[itemshot]70610[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70611[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70612[/itemshot]

Ingenuity - Stab things with weapons that mobs around the named mob drop.

[itemshot]70615[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70614[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70613[/itemshot]

Subversion - Sneak around and collect tokens worth 10 20 or 30 points until you have 300 points. Named and 2 adds come live. Kill named to win.

[itemshot]70609[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70608[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70607[/itemshot]

Weaponry - 4 mobs, one at a time. Each mob is vulnerable to a particular sort of damage - One piercing, one blunt, one slashing and one magic.

[itemshot]70605[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70606[/itemshot]
[itemshot]70604[/itemshot]

Fear - Mobs spawn, up to 4 up at once. Some can be feared, and take damage from being feared. Fearless mobs must be killed normally.

Well, I should be around and open to do things....just send me a tell and I'll gladly do some MPG stuff. I've not done many but one...and I'd like to do some more to get a feel(even if I die or we fail, though I'm hopin not lol). I always like practice, if you can't learn from your deaths....what can you learn from eh?

Besides I doubt it will come to that....so ya, ramble ramble I'm at work with nothing to do atm. lol

I'll be home tonight a bit late(like all fridays I get home at 7pm PST). I have saturday and tues/wed/thurs off so I'll be around. Btw Buaz I looked at that Frappr thing and you live in my town :p

I've only done 3 trials so far, but they are a lot of fun.

Fear, simple, its like the Execution trial (from PoJ) of MPG.

Subversion, relatively simple. Each time I've done it, we've failed cause of stupid errors. Once the necro ran out of components for his unlocking spells. Next time, the SK decided to pull the named at the very end before we had a chance to pacify. Other than that, it aint that bad if you have a competant group of chest openers. I've found that 1 bard and atleast 1 necro (2 would be better maybe) are the best, as each has a way to get rid of any aggro they recieve, without training the middle platform.

Weaponry, pretty hard and very gear dependent lol. We went in and we were scrounging to have enough weapons of each type. I still lack 1 piercer (finally got Pyrilian Trident), but have pretty decent 1hs and 1hb weapons to try it again.

I'd also love to try the others, so lemme know if any are happening, one of the funner things to do at level 70 it seems to me atm lol, since they give a pretty decent challenge across the board and actually require strategy.
