Hey guys. I know the server has not been the busiest but I was thinking of maybe making some videos or do streaming. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing that? The idea comes from people in /ooc who have tried to do events on their own in the past.

My idea is to show off some encounters in the Nest and maybe more zones if there is a interest in it. The hard part for me to to replicate the gear level to match when I was handling content at the time. Also keep in mind that back at this time there was no double hp on gear and augs.

So for those newer players reading this thread; know that my hp may be misleading. You could have just as much as me or more but it doesn't mean apples to apples. I would look at the AC and also note that I would sacrifice hp to have items like the ring from SoD that had dodge 5 and improve parry 4 ect.

Lastly understand that I had to do the fights many times with my guild and really know what was going on with the fight to create strats. The wiki is a great guide but this content is not meant to be 1 grouped. I could just judge from my characters tanking and so forth what I could and could not beat on my own, since I had done the fights so many times.... I always say... It is all about hitting that "magic ac" number to go from hard mode to easy mode.


In this picture I can tell that I had the t3 SoD armor and many of the SoD misc slots. I remembered on my warrior the t3 SoD armor was slightly higher in hp and ac than the Nest armor, but nest armor had the clickies. I also was using the 2.0 and had the dreadspire shield. This is when I decided to make a guild and raid with others because I saw that I couldn't go any further on my own. I also didn't want to play/beat the server with just duo boxing with another multiboxer.

At this point in time I remember that I could do mith Marr on my own but it was a 50/50 shot of winning. I also know about this gear level maybe with a bit more of stuff I could do the T1 nest mob with my group of 6 but that was about it.

In this picture I see that I had the 2.5 and nest charm. I think all of my armor was Dranik. Most of my gear was dranik in this picture.

I can tell in this picture that my gear was pretty much the same but I had the dranik charm and was in shield tank mode, which gave me over 500 more ac. I'm sure that I had gained augs between the previous picture and this picture (like type 15 augs that gave me a 50ac boost and 1khp (pre doublehp on all items and augs)

So from the first picture I know that I could do dreadspire on my own up to Hardzook. Between then and the last picture I know that I was able to back farm the nest to SOME extent (gearing from 33khp and 4k ac to say 38k hp and 4500 ac. There was only like 3 fights that I could do at this point in the nest ... 1 in T1, 1 in T2 and 1 in T3. It wasn't until I got to full dranik in the 3rd picture that I was able to do most of the nest (but not all of it)

Again, it all goes back to boxing and skill level. Also min/maxxng your toons is > adding more. I have seen several players go from 6 to 12 toons and were not able to do much more content (if any) than with there 6 man team.

I actually was able to back farm Dranik and Solteris as I got full geared in solteris. Again, knowing strats really well and getting gear for my tank was one of the keys. Boxing skills play a huge roll. I would've never made it without playing with others (we had 4-6 people that would play, many of whom only played a single toon)

Sorry, I got away from the streaming part of this thread. I just continue to see people join the server and not work together and eventually quit. Or they guild up and when people are on; they choose to do their own thing. Well someone is only going to log on so much before they get tired of just waiting around; hoping you might stop what your doing to go raid.

My stream would be a counterpoint to my statement above, but please consider that I only got to do a mob here or there and it took gearing up in a raid with guildmates to open new doors.


Photbucket sucks now. I got rid of the pictures (you have to pay to use it now)

Oh, if I do do it there will be no set date or time (at least I don't have one planned atm) If you haven't joined the discord; you could see me (streaming everquest) When I was doing it.

I just recently started to do my first speedrun of a game (Breath of Fire 2 - SNES) and got into streaming a bit. This has my main attention for the time being, but I have thought about streaming some Stormhaven stuff.

I'm streaming today, but it is not everquest related.

I logged into Stormhaven the other day to see what I could do to get my gear level down to dranik without farming a ton. I think I have the game plan so I just need to prep (do the work) and then I will be ready.

I might try in the next 3 weeks. I'm getting Lasik done in two weeks, so I will see how the well my eyes heal and work from there.

Well it is a hour of ranting but I talk about the server a bit and how I plan to downgrade my characters gear for my preparation for taking on the Nest. It might be best if you have it as background noise or thumb through it. Or you can wait until I finish all the gear and stream the content next time. I will start the next stream when I have my gear at the level I want and will highlight it all.

Again, this has more information that would benefit someone knew to the raid scene.

At this time I don't have a youtube channel. If I make one I will try to get it over there for others.

several hours later....

I got the gear downgraded to a point where it wont be a nightmare to re-aug everything. Everyone has higher hp than my tank but it would've taken so much time to move augs, and get gear to fit improve dodge and other various focus effects.

The main thing to me... is that if my tank dies then it is a wipe. I can think of one fight where my guys offtank and it was rough to do...so it will come off as easy... I think. but there ac is at the appropiate level. If double hp/mana wasn't in effect they would be about right.

I'm not sure when I will stream some fights, but will post anything if I know in advance.

I think the stream went pretty well. I did T1 and T2. I broke it into two highlights. I will try not to be lazy within the next week and get a youtube account going.

added t3 video. I screwed up on the game audio so my commentary was a bit off from the last stream. I felt awkward with no background music and just my voice.

none the less a great source of information and I even learned a thing or 2! I might even have a death in this one!!!

will do t4/t5 in one shot to finish the series. Hopefully within a week or by next weekend I will have this finished.

added t4/t5 and will have youtube links added soon. I will edited this post when they publish. At this time I don't plan on doing Dranik. I might do stuff if I ever get motivated enough to re-aug and gear my toons. Or if a lot of people happen to stumble across these videos and like them; I would do more... but then hopefully people would have joined the server by then and I wouldn't have to because other guilds would be farming it!

Thanks to our special guest, Bummy! for joining us tonight. Way to represent your class and species.

Youtube video links added. I also pasted the links on the top post of this thread.

So if Kayen or Trevius happen to have my introduction video on as background noise for doing honey do list or whatever.... you will hear some key topics when I glanced over the Stormhaven server. I was thinking that it would be nice to do something in the future and go into more details and where someone can ge more information about where to find the guides, ect. I was curious if you or if anyone else had something that they would like to see get touched on more.

I won't make a video editing production of it, but if I have a script it should flow real well in real time. I was just going on a whim and it came out pretty good, but I could do one more video as a "here is Stormhaven" come check it out promo type deal. This time I will have an outline to cover additional material and it would be organized a bit better.

Let me know any feedback, positive or negative. Or if you have an idea.. you are also welcome to try something yourself!
