The desync in this race was the worst I have ever had... Problems with the servers?
Descent can be such a joke. Seriously.
I've spent at least 5 minutes on both the first and second level each, and i was trying as hard as i could. Still, i could not locate the exits in any justifiable time. I was bee-lining to one of the usual locations as far as i could, but i always ended up checking 5 rooms that turned out to be dead ends. It's just so ridiculous.

Yes, it's random, just like the drops, but forcing us to full clear (because, at least as ranger, you will just straight up die if you rush through, even if you keep flasking with that unique belt equipped and never running out of flasks, some pack of mobs will just stunlock you to death) the entire area if we're unlucky is just no comparison.

This is by far not the first descent race i'm doing, but so far i've encountered nothing more frustrating than being unable to locate the exits in those halls. You get to cointoss where to go, if you guessed wrong you lose 10% of the total race time. It's just completely out of proportion.

Was having best descent I've ever done when ping just flatlined at 700ms. Dunno if it was server side or my side. Very Sad.
8/8 Challenges Anarchy/Onslaught
8/8 Challenges Domination/Nemesis

so apparently the lightning warp at the beginning can hit for one fucking hundred damage

kept getting bullshit packs full of arc bitches at the end and not a lot of lightning res of gear

Server issues. I had a stable Ping at 50 but I had to attack every enemy group 3-4 times to even hit something. After a while I used /oos a lot and it showed me, that my character desynced a few steps even if nothing was going on besides me running a bit.
had extreme desync problems in the first 2 areas, got better after that.
started slow and played it safe.
also got some very nice drops this time.
my best descent champions so far :)

also finally got to use a morror :p

everything was fine, better than average, except for the first few minutes when I was trying to guess where the exit of the first level was and ended up killing almost all monsters in almost every room ... wasting so much time ...

but the stupidest thing is, I was in stormy ledge and at level 16's door ... then I tried to craft some equipment. by the time I was half-done, I noticed the little message "league has finished" ... ARRRGGG !
should have rushed to level 16, it would have give me one more race point. well, 4+1+1 is not bad, but it's my usual result...
Everytime I yank a jawbone from a skull, then ram it in an eyesocket, I know I'm buildin' a better future !
