  • Alternate Art Thousand Ribbons Unique Item (5 available to be won)
Where's Avatar of the Tempest? I could never find him/her and just run straight into Gravicius' to get melted.
You choose to either fight hatestorm (glittering crypt) or avatar (glittering cave). I always go crypt since avatar has that storm herald thing that is flipping scary.
So... I was sucsessfully owning Brutus when... suddenly... I couldnt move anymore! I just stood there and watched... nothing worked. Its the third time like that in decent. Please fix that shit GGG... Id really appreacieate it.
Reached halls 2 with 250 life, met the animate weapon / st exile as the first monster, got 1-shot. Decent items aside from the complete lack of life rolls, which made progression rather slow.

GG all, see you next race.
KoTao ~ 90 CI Crit Caster Shadow ~ HC League
FULL CLEARED EVERY ZONE AFTER BRUTUS, and cleared most of the ones after rukuku that was efficient. Still only 3.07mil wtf shitty packs much?

Brutus' harpoon ability is bugged. Like many other serious extant bugs and desync, it's a longstanding issue that GGG probably has no intentions to fix at this point. What happens is sometimes, the spear may pull you into a wall where you can't move. Usually in the main game, you can town portal to escape it, but since there are no portals in Descent races, you'll have to log out and back in to get out of it. Make sure to run out of the staging area quickly or the Brute will corner you there, making this one out far more dangerous.
Got terrible first 2 zones as usual, then got destroyed by rukuku with resists qs flask on.

Then on second run got first 3 zones even worse than before (lvl 7 before freezing), died because my ISP is piece of dogshit, just throws random disconnects every time. Of course I was in front of blue pack.

And then somehow made it to 3rd boss and killed it in last 30 seconds :)

I think its a 4th d:c in a row with stupid death to random shit in the beginning, still waiting for this no deaths run (maybe it will happen some day, I don't know).
Working 11 hrs a day, reep races!

i forgot to equip armour pieces for bears location and extra damage one with substantial dmg aura construct around 1-shotted me
Spoiler
Died in the first 15 minutes because the server thought I should be best friends with a pack of giant blue skeletons when I was, in fact, running away. Came back pissed off, got a horrifically bad first zone (got level 4 just chuckin' fire traps at passers-by), then managed to make a comeback, kill Hatestorm and the Brute, and snag 20th Shadow. So I went from expecting 2 points because I died to somehow getting 8; I'm pretty pleased.
