I went to the Gunbad for the third time last night. I went via an invitation from some high level guild members — the same ones who invited me the first time. I also brought along Kahnroy, though, with 7 players, Kahnroy could not go on into the final boss battle. That was okay, though, because there was no big loot to roll for after defeating the big boss. Anyhow, everybody, including Kahnroy got some loot and I learned how to use my “guard” skill. Yeah for Kahnroy! So I’ll be sharing his damage from now on. Hopefully, that will help him stay alive longer when we get in sticky situations. I can’t wait to try it!
As for Gunbad, if you haven’t been there, it’s a dungeon in tier 3 located in the Northwest corner of the Badlands in the Dwarf storyline. To the left the battles are harder, but the loot is better. We did the squig quests last night. There’s some bug in the game, so some of the loot in Gunbad and in the game, in general, are for the wrong realm. Hopefully, they’ll fix that soon.
We played using “vent” which allows players to chat with voice. We didn’t have our headsets set-up yet, so Kahnroy and I could only listen in. It took a little time for me to get used to vent because when I play, I generally discount external noise. So early on, I heard the chatter but I wasn’t processing it. Kahnroy had to repeat what was going on to me when I was able to slice off a little piece of my brain to actually listen. I think things went well and it was great to hear the voices of some of the folks I’ve been playing and chatting with for the past month. It definitely enhanced teamwork and I understand that the folks I’m playing with are having fun like I am. It’s a great way to get a job done by remote teams.
