Had a poor a1 run with a terminal desync halfway through climb that caused a rerun from ledge, tons of desync near deaths to teleporting rhoas in shipyard and massive upper prison and anger maps. I was using a base damage shortbow until a2 as well which certainly didnt help, though i alched a solid quiver in coves that lasted to the end.
Reached a2 nice and late at the 50 minute mark and immediately alched a double phys roll composite, which lasted until the 80 minute mark when the sins 1 boss dropped a monstrous recurve which 1-shot everything and made for mad xp gain in those final minutes.
Other gear was decent, and move boots from the starting vendor are always welcome. Shame the brutal desync didnt really let me make the best of them.
Idied because this stupid bug at Brutos where he hook u in the wall
I've had this happen before too while kiting Brutus around the wide wall just as you enter the room. Got hooked right into the corner of that wall and you can't move. Have to log out before he finds you.
Anyway, pretty ordinary effort. Died to Hailrake after I logged out at 10% Life. Logged back in to see the char in standard. Bit of delay there obviously, although the servers have felt really laggy in general of late. Delays in things dying. Delays on opening crates and chests. Even hit registration delays. Maybe the Aus servers need a reboot.
Didn't even make the top 100 after coming back and deciding to do the Fairgraves quest. That was still good enough for #15th Ranger, lol.
