Recently returned to the game in June, playing very casually now, and finally got to 70 and Maat. 0/2 so far on stealing (frustrating!) and dreading having to go back out and steal another testimony, since I was something like 1/100 on each of the previous two. Got another testimony and decided I wanted to fight him. Spent 3 days capping dagger, marksmanship, and evasion for 70, thank you GoV leveling. Spent around 200k on gear (SH, spectacles, behemoth rings and other stuff for racc, acc, and eva), vile +1, opo necklace, hi pots, food and bolts. Things like Spartan Hoplon, blink band, stoneskin torque weren't on AH at the time, plus 50k each...ew. Spent an hour making macros. Finally ready, lets go!
Zoning into the BCNM, I had my strategy in my head of what to do, but what ever goes according to plan?
Started ugly...moved behind him, Sneak Attack macro, and...must've been 1 degree off or something cause no critical?! Great...no worries, we're ok. Dancing Edge go! Macro misfire! Yep... /ws Dancing Edge" <t>. Look closely, missing the first " and why didn't I go out and test it?!?! No worries, just use the menu and do it manually. Ok, did that. Icarus wing go! The macro worked, its a miracle! Dancing Edge again! Wait..macro doesn't work, do it manually. Cool, he's at 50%. Asuran Fists! Run away! At this point, combined with his regular hits on me for 100-150, I'm in red HP. Vile elixer+1 = yellow HP. All right. Sleep bolt, miss. Sleep bolt, miss! Sleep bolt, hit!! Move behind, Sneak Attack...hit! Hi-Pot. Hi-Pot. Bloody bolt. Perfect Dodge. My cards are all played, he's at 31% so...pray? We exchange several hits at this point, both of us having crap accuracy, and I'm down to 31 hp and I hit Flee preparing to run away when somehow I critical and he gives up!
