Athena Eleanor Roosevelt Kanye EUWest VII, Queen of the Western Midlands and Eastern Highlands; Duchess of the Nexus and Lagomorphs; Conqueror of the Insects and Obtainer of Potato was feeling festive, so she grabbed her party hat and set off on an adventure:
Then she heard from a friend that Daichi was apparently giving out free clubs to adventurers, and Athena wanted one:
And let me tell you, this thing’s wack:
A huge fan of bug-stomping, it should come as no surprise that Athena had it in for the Killer Bee Queen and wanted to take her stuff. So she did:
Some nice fp there.
Needless to say, her pets enjoyed eating those. But Athena was also hungry, so she grabbed a quick snack from a Pentaract:
And now JimdaFish’s three-oreo pally is a four-oreo pally.
And then something happened; after six and a half years of playing, countless event bosses and way too many loot boosts, JimdaFish finally got it:
At long last, the coveted Helm of the Juggernaut. Now we just need the Blue Bee Quiver, Crystallized Fang’s Venom and the CDirk (even if the last one is no longer an accomplishment to own; thanks DECA).
Because of time constraints/having a life, Athena didn’t complete the first campaign. She did get to the Incubation Mace, however, so now she has that again:
I find it amusing that they lopped off 40% of this thing’s dps and yet it still remains the best mace for single-target damage. You’d think they would have considered this sooner.
A random quest chest yielded a fun haul:
My first ever Midnight Star was from my second ever LoD; I barely knew the item existed when I got it from the old Ivory Wyvern chest. It very quickly became my favorite item, since ninja was my favorite class and paralyze was still very useful back then. I had a lot of fun running around and paralyzing enemies with it, but it ultimately met its fate at the hands of the old WLab boss and her minions:
This is why we don’t speedy when there are both confuse shots and instakill enemies nearby, folks.
I had to wait until a few days ago for my second Midnight Star, so it’s cool to have that back.
Then what started as an effort to get an ST ring turned into a hostage crisis when Athena discovered a small hero hiding from the Ancient Ruins enemies in a bag:
The race was still on to get more campaign points, though: our summoner hero was determined to finish this final campaign! So when she spotted a Lucky Djinn, she quickly killed it with her friends. Waiting patiently for the bullets to despawn after its death, she promptly dove into the Cave of a Thousand Treasures portal that dropped, ready to beat up Gold Boy. The dungeon loaded. And loaded. And then had to try loading again. And then had to try loading again.
“An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.”
Very well, a brief trip to the Nexus would slow her down, but it wasn’t the end of the world. But then the Nexus didn’t load either, so Athena had to manually restart the game. Once she loaded in, she was surprised to discover that she was dead:
All Lucky Djinn shots had despawned and no enemies were nearby when she went in the portal. Very cool.
Rest in peace to Athena, the summoner so powerful that the game had to cheat to kill her.
