EverQuest: "Feigning Death"
Posted: Monday December 22nd, 2003 by

Please pardon me while I ramble on feeding you inane details about an event you could probably care less about.

I would like to say up front, what you are about to read is EXACTLY the kind of thing I get emailed to me telling me what a great joke it would make. **rolls his eyes**

I'm pretty sure it's situationally funny and no one will care.

Welcome to my world.

-----

Vapid recounting as follows:

Guildmates and I went on an LDoN adventure Friday. It was a 21 Collect in Mistemoore. And we knew we were losing the Paladin after about an hour.

In my estimation, collect 21 in an hour is DEFINATELY doable.

I was wrong. The comic you see is an actual discussion that happened after the Paladin had to go. **grins** Of course the other guy KNOWS I can't Feign Death. I think maybe he was trying to get me ... KILLED. **gasps dramatically**

We still had 7 or so to collect too, and only a half hour to do it. So it wasn't going to be a cake walk.

Well we did win. With about 5 minutes left. And it just so happened to be right when the servers started having problems Friday night. It was a full minute (maybe more) after we'd collected the 21st piece before we got the Ding! and notification that's we'd succeeded.

We were fixing to Evac out to split when I got an urgent tell for an SOE staff member telling me not to zone. So I shouted out and the druid ducked immediately. **laughs** Was a very interesting circumstance.

See, if we'd zoned, the game would have dumped us to desktop. So, we stayed in and got some exp, until the poor cleric, who was having to pacify pull, brought a full room.

The guy in blue there died. So did the Cleric. One druid evacced, while the others of us booked for the zone. I hit the zone with 70%. I stood there looking at the zone line, waiting to either zone or get dumped from the game. Everything was hung up. I had no mouse control. But, I was still seeing text in the zone. The other guys were cursing because it didn't seem as though we were going to be allowed to zone.

The game finally horked, and I bounced out to the chat room to wait.

When I finally got back in... there I was at 30%. Apparently the mobs had been beating on me while I tried to zone. **shrugs**

Just thought I share.

**coughs**
